Oh this is new.
But I haven’t got much blog content (apart from the sponsored shiz) lined up and tbqh I just fancied updating you guys on what’s going on.
I’ve had loads of requests to blog about my wedding planning or diary style posts and neither feel quite ‘me’ at the mo.
And also I actually LOVE reading other bloggers’ ’round up’ posts of their months but fancied putting a different spin on it.
So welcome to The (Month) Schedule
A monthly post where we just have a good ol’ catch up and I can fill you in on what’s on the cards for me the rest of the month so please let me know via the comments or Insta DMs whether you like this sorta post or not.
Actually don’t tell me if you don’t like it. Sensitive innit.
As you may know, I turned 32 last week which means of course I have a bajillion content ideas all about ageing and what being a woman in your thirties means and why I ache and how I hate noise yadda yadda yadda – so look forward to that.
What is on the work Schedule then?
I am trying REALLY hard to pluck up the courage to get into YouTube again. I’ve toyed with it so often and everyone I’ve ever spoken to about where I’m taking this online space of mine have told me that YT is the best way to blend the content I want to make (but not blog content) with getting across my personality more AND linking up the podcast.
I think it’ll be really fun, and I have lots of video ideas like interviews with bloggers/Youtubers, sit downs on mental health/careers/confidence and capsule wardrobe, size 14-16 try ons and styling. I just need the confidence! I got to bed every night FULL of ideas and motivation and then as soon as I wake up, I shit myself that it would be awful and I’d fail and kind of chicken out a bit. But I will give myself a push so make sure you subscribe here to see my first video back.
As ever, I’m working hard on the Exciting Emails blog and newsletter with new resources and posts coming weekly. September WILL be the month I start writing this bloody e-course I keep banging on about so make sure you’re subscribed to the newsletter for all the goss.
Scarlett London and I are continuing to plan our blogger weekend away for Spring and this month we hope to secure a few more (MAHOOOOSIVE) speakers and sponsors so that we can start sharing more information – I’m super excited about this!
And How About The Personal One?
The only plans I’ve got this month is heading to the Wedding Show expo thing in a couple of weeks.
Ben and I are going to send out our Save The Dates next weekend (as it’ll be EXACTLY A YEAR) and finalising the guest list.
I might actually write a post on the politics of the guest list because it’s something I didn’t think I’d have to encounter, having such a small guest list but APPAZ NOT.
We’ve now booked our videographer (the INCRED Paper Twin who are doing Zoe London’s wedding and have done Helen Anderson’s and other incredible couples’ weddings) and we’ve decided to host the reception in the garden of Ben’s family home which will be super cute. Now we just need to confirm where the ceremony will be!
I also keep searching for wedding dresses but don’t want to pay more than £500 and don’t reaaaaallly want to wear white or look TOO bridal – so that won’t be tricky at all will it?
I think that’s all that’s going on but obvs follow on Instagram as I regularly update the mundanities of life over there.
What’s on your September schedule?
