Top 10 blog post ideas for writer's block!


Hello, welcome back to my blog! Today I wanted to share with you some of my tips to beat writer's block. I have had my fair share of times where I have no inspiration and it's horrible. You don't want to upload content you don't have passion in - it shows massively and reflects on your readership! So, I thought I would share my top 10 favourite blog posts to read/write. I hope these tips help you out and get your creativeness flowing again.


1 -  A listicle, I love reading listicles. Thanks to Buzz feed they have become a really huge thing. It's a lot easier than reading a huge amount of text and gives you and readers inspiration. I for an example made  a listicle on my top 10 life goals! (Read here)



2 - An interview with somebody you look up to or find inspiring. Everybody loves reading about human interest stories, that's why real-life is such a huge thing. For an example, I have recently started a blog series - inspirational stories. This series displays people from all walks of life and gives inspiration to other readers, which gives everyone a good pick me up! (Read the inspirational stories here)







3 - Share your opinion on a subject that's close to you. Give some positivity on the subject or make people aware. Readers can really tell when you've put your heart into a blog post and I think people will look up to you more for it, as it shows dedication and effort. I wrote an article on my opinion on body image in the media, which is a very hot topic.  (Read here)



4 - Got a DIY or how-to? share it! Everyone loves a good DIY hack.



5 - New to blogging or your readers don't know much about you? Write a meet the blogger post. To let your readers in on why you started your blog, and just more about you and your personality.



6 - Got a recipe? Share it, I love reading people's yummy recipes and trying to recreate them myself. It always feels better to make something from scratch, so share your tips.


7 - we all love a good throwback post. Why not travel back and talk about your horrifying styles! I love the Youtube tag going around, where Youtubers recreate their past make-up looks! Why not take a blog post take on that? I for one would love to see that.






8 - Day in the life blog post. Have you done something interesting or visited a lovely place? Recreate a day in the life with pictures.  (Pictured, my blog post on my trip to York read here)




9 - Share your favourite blogger -  give them some recognition. The world of blogging is huge and we all love finding new blogs to read, so share your favourites.



10 - Share something you're loving and why, could be a beauty product, a film anything! Maybe you can get somebody else loving it too!


Thank you for reading. Let me know in the comments your tips for writer's block.

Until next time,
Lauren

Inspirational stories #3


Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog. Today I am sharing with you another inspirational story, to follow on with my new blog series.  Here is Steven's story about how he overcame tough times and how he got to where he is today!
“My most challenging experience in life has to be the passing of my Nan, unexpectedly a few years ago. "I still feel the emptiness and void to this day. She was like my best pal and not a day went by where I didn’t visit her.“ I was in a very bad place in my personal life before her passing. I had just left and turned my back on a very promising career in football. The root cause was an injury to my knee, which kept me out for over a year. "Depression set in which is a horrible experience for everyone, especially as a young lad. I felt so lost. I was already on the wrong path. "When my Nan passed it totally turned me the opposite way. “With the help of my mother and partner, I started to make something of myself by turning negativity into positivity. 
"I was totally lost in terms of career choices as I played football on a full-time basis. After leaving school everyone was mostly at college gaining apprenticeships or working. "Six years ago my mum got me college forms to fill out and it really made sense to do something I have always been interested in and something that I think I would excel at as a career - personal training. "My advice to anybody finding it difficult to lose weight is simple; nothing comes easy so don’t expect it to be just that. Seek some advice from a professional in the industry who knows what they are doing. "If you hate the gym then don’t sign up and waste your hard earned cash. Buy something worthwhile or take up a physical sport/hobby and also remember to always have fun. "At school I hated learning. Today I love to learn! I like to read up on people’s success stories, whether that’s a rags-to-riches story or fitness and life for inspiration. “Five years time from now, I see myself becoming the person I intend to be - a positive person to everyone around me and progressing with my chosen career, personal training.”
Q: I asked Steven what three adjectives he would use to describe himself.
A: Motivated, grateful and driven.

Thank you for reading! If you think you have a story to share email me: laurenmw15@gmail.com and it could be featured on here next! :) 
Until next time,

Pink hair don't care


Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog! Today I thought I would share a quick review/tutorial on how to get candy floss pink hair.  I have always admired pastel pink hair, but my hair was near enough jet black so I put that idea to the back of my mind - until now. I started going light a couple of months ago and just gradually started to build it up from there with highlights. Finally, a couple of days ago I got my hair to an ashy blonde, then I knew I could finally try out pastel pink hair!

To be honest at first I was a little unsure; all the videos I were viewing were showing people with white blonde hair, which I did not have. I thought after a long hard think to just go for it as I would never know if I didn't try.  

I applied this to towel dried hair and left on for 20 mins - the result, beautiful candy floss hair. I love that I have still kept a few blonde undertones for a more subtle pink look.


This is the hair dye I used to dye my hair. It smells amazing and does a brilliant job, so what more can you want? It's perfect as you don't have to fully commit as it washes out gradually. I paid 5 pound for this and still have plenty left, so all in all its a great price for a fab dye!

What do you think to the pastel pink hair trend? Let me know in the comments.

Until next time,
Lauren
