Supporting Small Online Business

Hey everyone, so with everything that’s going on in this crazy world at the moment I came up with an idea to write a lil post about some of the small businesses I’m really fond of that I came across online, mostly through Twitter.

I thought it might be a nice idea to show my support for them as I know a lot of people are struggling financially with this self isolation process, I’m not saying these businesses in particular are struggling because I have no idea but never the less I just wanted to share with you guys some of the hard working people I see on my timeline.

I Need Your Book Recommendations

Howdy guys so today’s post is me asking a lil favour from you people, I know you’re probably thinking, ‘but Carolanne, we come here to get content from you, not to give you stuff’ well apologies but ya’ll are the best people out there so who else better to get some inspiration from?

I’m really wanting to start reading more this year, well start reading again! I used to be such a huge bookworm when I was younger but growing up I’ve kind of lost touch with my love of reading, which is such a huge shame.

Anyway, at night time myself and Martin usually wind down by laying in bed on our phones and I kind of want to break that habit … my obsession with Tik Tok is getting out of hand folks!

So what I want from you lovely lot are some book recommendations, i’m hoping to get my head stuck into some horror, thriller, psychological type of books and would love it if you could point me in the right direction. Anything that’s gonna have me spooked, getting chills or just saying ‘no way’ is perfect!

If you could leave your recommendations in the comments or get in touch on twitter (@carolannedavies) I would greatly appreciate it and I promise the next post will be my usual, hilarious or make up filled post … deal?

Giving Up The Coffee

Hello ladies and gents, today’s post is gonna be another little chatty one so I hope you don’t mind but I wanted to just talk a little bit about my recent decision to give up the cawwwfee (please tell me you read that in a Jersey accent).

This might seem a little boring for some so I don’t mind if you want to head out but I thought it could maybe help others so I’m gonna chat about it anyway. I’ve enjoyed drinking coffee since I was about sixteen, I’d have a cup on a morning most days whether it was before uni or work or just to start off my day, I didn’t really find that it ‘kept me awake’ or get that buzz that some people drink it for, I dunno maybe I was immune ‘cos I’d drunk it for so many years but I enjoyed the taste. Over the years I’ve had a few spells where I’d give it up for a few month’s just because I found I was drinking too much of it and didn’t want it to stain my teeth or it was giving me headaches but then I would find myself slipping back, especially in the Summer months because Iced Caramel Frappes from McDonalds are literally the best!

How We’re Finding Aberdeen

Heya loves, so as promised a few blog posts ago I thought I would write up something about our ‘kind of’ move to Aberdeen, just to let you all know why we’re here and what the crack is … if you’re interested anyway.

So just a lil background info for anyone who is new here, myself and my boyfriend come from the North-East of England, if you’ve heard of a parmo then you know where about’s that is. Martin’s job as an engineer has him working all over the place so for about two years we were doing the long distance thing and he was just coming home on weekends. Currently he’s placed in Aberdeen and has been here for a while now and is looking to be here for quite a few more months, so one day we were both like ‘why don’t I move to Aberdeen for a bit?” The TV station I worked for has a branch in Aberdeen and after talking to my editor at the time, she was up for me transferring. This would mean more time together during the week and taking the pressure off us to be together each weekend without feeling guilty if we wanted to do something else.

Things I Wish I Could Say to my Seventeen Year Old Self

If you don’t know I turned twenty seven at the end of January, can someone please tell me how this happened? I feel like I’ve blinked and my twenties are almost coming to an end … slightly dramatic I know but honestly there’s something about getting past that twenty five mark that makes you shit yourself!

Anyway, what I thought would be a good idea is to write a couple of things down that if I could tell my seventeen year old self oh that decade ago, I would. I originally was going to write twenty seven things down but honestly I don’t think I’ll be able to think of that many so we’ll just see how it goes shall we?

Is OnlyFans Empowering Women?

So I’m sure you’ve all heard of the site that’s on almost everyone’s lips called OnlyFans? If you haven’t let me just fill you in, so basically the site describes itself as a way for content creators to interact with their followers who are willing to pay a bit of dolla for their posts/videos etc. Now on the OnlyFans site it says that anyone can join and post things like tutorials, selfies and anything else along those lines, however what it’s become notorious for is women and men uploading “nudes” and sort of explicit content to earn some coin when they get subscribers … are you still following?

Manchester Weekend

I think i’ve mentioned that Martin (my bf for those of you who don’t know) has been working away the last couple of months, right now he’s placed in Manchester which is only two and a half hours away … thank the lord! So we decided that last weekend I would go see him for a change as he usually travels home, not to mention he actually had to work that weekend so it kinda made sense for me to go if I wanted to see him, which of course I did!!

Let’s Talk: Life Update Part 2

Hey everyone, so I thought this week’s post would just be a little chatty one letting you all know where I am right now in life and what’s been going on since my last update post in July … I know, I can’t believe it’s been three months, where has the year gone?

I love doing these type of chats with you guys, mainly because I don’t have to think that hard but also because I love reading these kind of posts from other bloggers and find them rather therapeutic, is that weird?
