Reflecting on 2018

How is it already the last day in 2018? This year has flown by, like every year it seems, so it’s time to take a look back through the year and reflect on what has happened.

Blogging & Youtube

2018 has been an amazing year both for my blog and personal life. I made it one of my goals this year to really push my blog forward and try and improve every aspect of it. In August I finally decided to go self hosted and I loved designing my own website and I believe it has reflected on my blogging style. I now have so much creative freedom and have found my blog posts have really improved.

Photography wise this year has been full of trying out new photography styles, especially for my product photography, and in the process I purchased some new camera equipment too. We now have a Canon 50mm 1.8 STM lens and a Sigma 105mm 2.8 Macro lens. These two lenses have completely change my blog photos, making them more professional and allowing me to have more control of depth of field. Photography is something I have alway been passionate about and I have fallen more in love with this year.

Another way I have stepped my blog up is by have a section on my blog dedicated to fashion. I have been doing lookbooks on my youtube channel, over the past year, and felt it was time to write about fashion too. Fashion is something I really enjoy writing about now and I love working with my husband on the fashion shoots. This has also lead to working with some amazing jewellery brands along the way like Boho Betty and The Diamond Store.

Travel

Along side blogging I have also done a lot of traveling this year, which has been amazing. We have travelled to four different countries this year, Iceland being my favourite. If you want to go traveling more then keep in mind it doesn’t have to be expensive. Look at travelling to countries outside peak months, most of the time it’s nicer as there are less tourists around, and it’s a lot cheaper too.

I personally love traveling, it gives me something to look forward to and helps break up the year. It’s a great way of exploring new places and seeing beautiful countries first hand. We have been filming all our travels this year and it’s amazing to see how far our videos have come. Youtube has turned into a venture for my husband and I, and there is no one else I would rather work with.

With 2018 being a great blogging and Youtube year, I can’t wait to start 2019 and see where it takes me. I am always striving for better blog content and youtube videos, which will come with time and by pushing myself out of my comfort zone.

Hope you have a lovely New Years Eve and Happy 2019!
