When Lydia Smiles

If you’d asked me in high school what I wanted to do after I finished, my list of possible career paths would’ve included fashion design, forensic sciences or media… the very last resort being running off into the sunset with a really wealthy Italian man for a career as a housewife. My love for storytelling has never died down, even when my dreams of what I wanted to become changed.

Sometimes I Write

Okay so a couple of months ago an article I wrote was published by The Uni Bubble. Back then I was in the middle of a (long term) blogging hiatus, but now that I’m back I’ve decided to repost it on my own blog. I’ll leave the link to the original article at the bottom. Enjoy!

This is the age of social media. We exist in a world of snapchatting pictures of your clean eating, live streaming gigs, Instagram businesses, and retweeting everything your favourite celebrities or online influencers tweet. Social media is supposed to be a positive haven where you can connect with people who share the same interests, expand your knowledge, and stay up to date with everything that’s going on in the world; so why is it still so frowned upon? Why do people roll their eyes at excessive posting and view their social media addicted peers…

You may have already noticed how this blog is changing. While it may have seemed abrupt, it’s actually something I’ve been thinking about for a while. I wasn’t excited to write and now I am. I found what matters to me, not that what I used to write about didn’t matter to me, I’ve just refocused on something else. The break I took and lack of motivation made me realize how important writing about what matters to you is.

The “about me”.

About me, family, life blog, lifestyle, new blog

Dreaming of calm

Yes, I know its generic and played out but everyone has to do the typical “about me” post and I’m no different.

This is my first time ever doing anything like this and I’m very excited to share the craziness that is my every day life with all of you.

So, I figured we would start off by me telling you guys a little about me and what I would like to do with this blog. I’m a married mother of four (pictured above) trying to survive the day to day shenanigans of my rambunctious children on a day to day basis. So a lot of this blog will be about the daily things we go through. However it will also be fun recipes, some diy tutorials (as they come up), and my journey to attempt to better myself.

This is actually one of the things I am hoping will…

Hey! Welcome to my humble page!

I’m glad you stumbled across me. I am here to tell you about my life, the up’s the down’s the highs the lows of a 30 year old woman in the prime of her life. You will find content about my daily life, the love of my life, my life on the the 9-5 grind, my life as a mum and how they work together.

I have a love for crystals and their energy and how they help me. You will be able to read up on anxiety and I personally control my fears and demons. Tips and tricks, even recipes as I learn to cook healthily for my family.

My plans and my goals, aspirations. Just generally everything there is to know about me, you will be able to read it here. I will be as they say an open book.

Thank you…

The Journey Begins

The Reptile Queen

I’ve always had so many things to say and share, whether just random ideas to passions that I could speak about forever, but I’m a bit shy and it often keeps me from sharing a lot of myself, but the thought of sharing my thoughts publicly through writing had never crossed my mind, but was suggested to me, and through further explanation on the “how” and the “what” and the “why”, I started to feel an excitement build within me. Many topics raced through my head, from silly, fun things to subjects that I considered important, or at least special, and would love to share with others, and later even get their opinions or thoughts on the topic at hand.

Have you ever wondered what most of the great bloggers have in common?

The thought probably never crossed your mind.

But, I have (I have an inquisitive mind; which causes me to go searching for answers).

Also, I have been blogging for many years and during that time, I have paid close attention to patterns — the various types of things that make bloggers standout from their peers.

And, without further ado, I am going to share them with you.
