3 Amazing Blogs For Blogging Tips, Advice + Tutorials

Today I really wanted to share with you three blogs that I have been absolutely loving lately as I've been slowly revamping my blog. The first one is I Can Build A Blog - the first thing I noticed about this blog was how beautiful the design is! But it's not just a pretty face; the articles are so informative and easy to follow, I'm sure I'll always go back here for tutorials and how-tos.

I have also been loving Jenny Purr for a little while now. Again this blog's layout and design is so simple and inviting and easy to follow. The articles are so well written, insightful and in depth. There are step by step guides, interviews, challenges and loads of resources to inspire you to make your blog the best it can be. I highly recommend checking it out if you don't follow already.

I actually only just came across Elle & Co. through Jenny Purr's first podcast last week, but she too has a tonne of great resources, tips and advice on her blog. I can definitely see myself going back through her archives!

What are your favourite blogs with tutorials and other helpful resources? What kind of advice do you find most useful?

Hope you are having a fantastic week!

I'm back from holiday!

So I am back from an absolutely AMAZING holiday to Japan and Fiji with my love. I know this isn't a travel blog, but I thought I'd explain my absence and a little bit about our trip! 

Japan was absolutely beautiful as we were there right on time for cherry blossoms! I've been to Japan in autumn and winter before, but the cherry blossoms were breathtakingly stunning and I am so glad we got to experience them. We also visited a town in the mountains where it was snowing! It was my partner's first time seeing snow so it was really special.

After rushing around Japan trying to fit in as much as possible, we spent a week relaxing on an island in Fiji. We stayed on Viwa Island of the Yasawa Island group, and it was absolutely gorgeous. We had our own private beachfront bure perched on the edge of a beautiful white sand beach with stunning clear turquoise waters. We snorkeled on the reef, kayaked, learned to cook Fijian dishes, and above all relaxed and enjoyed operating on "Fiji time".

We're a little sad to be back to be honest, but it's good to get back into the swing of things and I feel refreshed and ready to jump into new and exciting projects!
