#Obsessed: My top 5 obsessions of the week.

As a blogger I spend a lot of time online sometimes for content strategy… Most of the time it’s just me personally scrolling because I LOVE THE INTERNET! It’s my absolute favorite place! you can spend all day learning about life as a full time blogger……or you can just stare at cute babies on Instagram and be 😊 either way it’s magic! Each week I’m going highlight my favorite

Book, Podcast, instagram, Twitter and Blog🤗 Here we go

Book : “A lifestyle bloggers guide to your first week of blogging” By Marina De Giovanni

This is the book that started it all for me. A lifestyle blogger’s guide to your first week of blogging is the book that motivated me and gave me the tools I needed to start this blog. The book only cost me $5.60 but has been the most beneficial tool I’ve purchased since I started blogging 4.5 months ago.. yes that’s right I’ve only been doing this 4.5 months!

The first page alone proved that I had made the right purchase. I don’t have a laptop, I don’t have a bunch of equipment and this book showed and proved to me that I didn’t need those things. This book gives you a daily guide to setting up your blog. The book gives you 7 days to start you blog but I was so motivated to be a full time blogger that I accomplished all the steps of the book IN ONE DAY and I haven’t stopped working since. I joined Marina’s Facebook group and found an amazing community of bloggers that have supported me every step of the way. I wouldn’t be here blogging if I didn’t purchase this book. This book is truly valuable if you want to be a full time blogger this is the book you need to buy! I refer back to it often. Highly recommend! Completely #obsessed!

Podcast: The Mattie James show

“The Mattie James Show” is a podcast geared toward female entrepreneurs. She gives straight forward advice like Before you quit your day job for women who are workin a 9-5 and blogging at the same time ( 🙌🏾) she gives detail information and her podcast lead you to her Instagram..

I COMPLETELY FELL IN LOVE WITH The Mattie James her style, her beautiful family. The fact that she was natural, a wife, a blogger and quit her full time job to be a blogger… she is everything I’m working hard to be. The Mattie James podcast is jam packed with information so I suggest listening with a notebook handy. She has so much information. Also if you’re a Content Creator her instagram feed is TOP NOTCH INSPIRATION 🙌🏾

#ADgoals!! I just love her sooo obsessed!

Instagram: @lavendersunco

@lavendersunco is a Trendy baby clothing brand! I’m obsessed with their clothes

I’m completely obsessed with the “Mini boss hoodie” I’m not afraid to admit I’m a working mama on budget. It’s very important to me to find cute, trendy fashions that don’t break the bank the hoodie is $14.95 less than $20 I’m in love! I can see soooo many outfit ideas for this piece! The clothes just keep getting cuter and cuter on their Instagram!

And I LOVED THE PRICES!!! I can tell this is going to be an insta I’m constantly obsessed with.

Blog: “Katedaysaweek”

I’ve been obsessed with the blog “Katedaysaweek” for a couple months Now. Kate is a beauty blogger from Belgium that I found on twitter!

I read in her bio that she was 36 and blames most of her flaws on old age… I fell in love😂😂 her no nonsense attitude and sense of humor just made her love her. I reached out and started following her on all her social media and she’s just a gem! If you’re looking a fun, down to earth beauty blogger with the a cute dog follow Kate’s Blog

and her Instagram

Twitter: @StealtheMGaming

@StealTheMGaming is another blogger I met on twitter. The twitter blogging community is very tight knit and Jay the Barista from Kent is the best thing about logging on to Twitter. He’s always sharing the blogs of others, he also intrigued me because there’s just not a ton of male bloggers giving their opinions about their life and I was really interested in that.

Beardedigor is the name of Jay’s blog and he updates regular, I fell in love with The cheekiness of Jay’s post they always made me laugh and think. I also noticed that Jay just thrives on helping other bloggers grow. He does interviews, shares blogs. It’s just a a joy to see his name pop up when I open Twitter. He’s the kind of bloggers new bloggers should follow because he’s very aspirational. He’s only been blogging a short time but his love for the craft motivates me. I like to recommend those who make the internet experience pleasant and Jay does that.

Well that’s it for the week! If you want me to check out your blog, Instagram or twitter leave me a link below.. knew knows you could be my next obsession!
