So I've mentioned in the past how my skin care regime isn't exactly a refined skill of mine, in fact it's pretty much non-existent most of the time. Occasionally I'll slap on some moisturiser and be done with it, but even then it's a toss-up over whether or not I'll make the effort to do anything at all before I go to bed.
I found this to be a such a profound and heartfelt story that literally took me on a whirlwind of emotions from start to finish. The descriptive nature of Natasha Ngan’s writing literally manifests in the reader's mind, from the simple but worn down land of the Paper castes to the grandeur and dark opulence of the palace and the city that surrounds it.
The inspiration for this post happened as I was researching a Mother's Day blog post for work. I've never really thought much into Mother's Day other than what to get my mum and if my sisters have gotten her anything better. But during my research I discovered that after getting the day nationally established in 1914, the founder of Mother's Day, Anna Jarvis, worked the remainder of her life to get it disestablished after she saw how popular it became- and not in the way she intended it to be.
Blogging isn't just writing content for your site, it's the endless social media promotions, image content and ideas that go into it. Sometimes it can get overwhelming and you can get caught up in it all. If you have a full time job or family then it's even harder to manage your time to make room for the blogging part of your life
The sequel seems to be a lifetime away from the first book. Set in a time of chaos, war and loss, we see the characters take their own paths in this fight whilst dealing with past consequences and new dangers.
Recently I've reached my biggest milestone yet...1000 followers on Twitter! Plus I've now got over 200 of you following Simply Chloe Blog! It's funny how it's the little things that make you happy, well not so little seeing as there's hundreds of you now! Despite only starting blogging at the end of October 2018, I feel like I've accomplished a fair amount up to now. So seeing as though there are so many of you now, I thought why not do a little Q&A as a way of re-introducing myself to any new readers and allow my long time readers the chance to get to know me better.
Rome is a city of history, culture, architecture and amazing food. In other words, it's my kind of city. Travelling to new places is always exciting, especially those with so much to offer that everyday is guaranteed to be different. But it can be hard to know what to do in a new place, let alone a different country. After my recent trip to Rome I thought about all I had learned and so I decided it was only fair to share my knowledge with you all, so that anyone who does visit Rome in the future can feel comfortable knowing they have an understanding of the city and what to expect before they jet off.
