Saturday Update.

It’s a Saturday afternoon (and I am having a chilled day) so I thought I would update my blog and let you all know what’s been happening over the past few days.

Firstly, I just want to share with you all that I woke up on Friday morning and checked my blog statistics to discover that I had 20,000 views on my blog. Wow! How on earth did I manage that? I was absolutely flabbergasted. So i thought, as a token of my appreciation, I would host a giveaway. Who doesn’t love a giveaway? If you check out my twitter (@blogabtnothing1) or my Facebook page (link at the end of this post) you will get all of the details on how to enter, my lovelies. 

Something else that I am really pleased about is that last night I wrote my first ever guest blog – for the lovely @sunshinesarahxo. Sarah is going to write a guest blog for me too! I think it’s interesting to bring another person’s personality and perspective in to your own blog – just as a little breath of fresh air. I met Sarah as she won my first (and only) giveaway that I had ever done on my blog; we got chatting and now we are supporting one another’s blog pages and offering each other encouragement! So, yeah, this was my first ever guest post and I throughly enjoyed writing it: I could not have wrote it for a better person. Thank you for the opportunity, lovely. The link to my guest post on Sarah’s blog is  http://www.writingrambling.co.uk/2016/04/guest-post.html (should you wish to have a read after this post).

Another exciting thing (for me, anyway, but I’m easy pleased) is that I purchased a camera to try and enhance my blog. It’s just a pretty basic one to try and improve my photography skills and one that I can carry about in my handbag with me. It is a Canon IXUS 170 – in royal blue. My reason for buying this particular one was because it was my absolute favourite colour and I just had to have it. So, I’m looking forward to my new toy coming so I can try it out and start experimenting. Photography is completely new to me so I hope you guys can appreciate that my pictures will be pretty mince – at first anyway. 

Moving swiftly onwards, let me tell you what I watched last night: The Jungle Book. It was the new one that is currently out in the cinema. My boyfriend and I manged to get a pretty decent copy online. We have an old projector in his bedroom and we watch films on the roof as we lay in bed – it’s pretty awesome (and a lot more comfier than sitting in a cinema chair for several hours).  I have to say, if you have not yet seen this film, you must put it on your ‘To Do List’ – you will not be disappointed. It had me hooked the whole way through. It was incredible. In fact, it’s one of those films that I could watch over and over again. I may do a review about it, some time in the near future, but I’ve never done a proper movie review and I’m worried I couldn’t do this film justice; It was marvellous.

So far today, I have sat out in the sunshine for a bit, and I’ve jotted down some notes for things blogging/twitter related. It was super chilly but I was determined to sit out in the sun for as long as I possibly could to try and top up my colour (I want to build up a decent colour for going away to Malta in August). What have you done so far today or what do you plan on doing? I would love love love to hear from you. 

I will leave all of my links at the bottom of this post, as always.

Until next time
