    Reflecting on 2 Years of Blogging

    I’m back after what seems like a lifetime. Over the past few weeks, I have been busy reflecting on myself as a blogger and working behind the scenes on Megan Elizabeth Lifestyle. Hopefully, you can notice the difference. The reason for such a change? I’ve worked as a freelance writer for about 2 years now and I wanted to join together this aspect of my life with my blog and create an all-singing, all-dancing site. I’ve also been doing some work with Marketing Voice in Leicester and my knowledge of SEO and WordPress has improved from this experience. I wanted to apply this to the blog to create a better…

    Seville Travel Guide – Top 4 Places to Visit

    The past couple of weeks have been quite busy, and blogging has had to take a bit of backseat unfortunately. I’m trying to get myself organised though and this week it’s blog central. I recently had a long weekend in Seville, Spain. It’s such a beautiful city and you can easily spend hours just walking around all the beautiful cobbled streets. Everywhere you turn there’s a different square, gorgeous old building or collection of orange trees. The city centre is a maze of culture and history. Rather than attempting to trace my each and every step for you though (as we might get lost in Seville), I’ve put together a…

    #SoberNotBoring Hearing from You #2

    Hey everyone! Thank you so much for the support on Saturday’s post. It’s so nice to hear what everyone’s favourite Christmas film is. Today we’ve got some more stories from you for #SoberNotBoring. This has fallen off the radar a bit recently, so let me know if you’d like to see this content about sober living continue. Telles Nutrition Over the years I have had a lot of negative experiences of choosing not to drink – I’ve been told by bar staff that “if I didn’t drink alcohol then I’d come to the wrong place”, a guy cancelled a date because I wasn’t “appropriate” for a pub date, and I’ve…

    Festive Films to Get You Ready for Christmas*

    Ok, I know it’s not December yet, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get excited about Christmas, right? I’m already getting a festive feel when out and about, whether it’s seeing gifts in the shops or the Christmas decorations adorning town centres. With that in mind, I’m thinking it’s acceptable to start off the Christmas blog posts. What better way to do that than with some festive films. No doubt we all have a list of movies that are a must-watch this time of year. I love cosying up in front of the TV in my pyjamas when it’s cold outside. A mug of tea or hot chocolate wouldn’t go…

    November Must-Read Blogs | Blogging

    Hellooo! At last, I’m publishing my Thursday post on Thursday and not Friday. It’s time to continue my monthly favourite bloggers series, otherwise known as my November Must-Read Blogs. I’ve changed the name to ‘Must-Read’ as I have so many favourite bloggers and the title was a bit misleading. This is simply a list of some blogs I enjoy reading and would love to be able to add everyone all at once, but if I did, this post would be never-ending. Anyway, enough of me rambling (nothing new there), let’s get on with the November must-read blogs. Bethany and Life I love the chatty, friendly style of Bethany’s blog (formerly…

    Selfie Bag by Cotton Bag Co. Review

    I thought it was about time I did a fashion post as they’ve been pretty non-existent on this blog. Needless to say, when the opportunity to review the Selfie Bag by Cotton Bag Co. came around, I couldn’t wait to try it. Whilst not a major handbag enthusiast, I love tote bags. University open days definitely made me want to see how many tote bags I could collect. At first glance, the Selfie Bag looks just like a normal tote. There are 2 designs to choose from. A colourful flower print, or a black and gold pattern. I went for the black and gold as I felt that was more…

    November Bullet Journal Setup | Plan with Me

    New month, new start. Getting back to the bullet journal in November. October’s bullet journaling proved to be pretty non-existent after a stressful September and I never got around to setting up a new month and sharing it with you all. However, I’m determined to change this for November and the design for this month is already taking shape. So, grab your cup of tea, pencil case and notebook, and join me for the November bullet journal setup. Let’s get planning! November Bullet Journal Setup Theme As it’s November, the main source of inspiration is fireworks. They’re colourful, fun and easy to draw. Fireworks can also be very minimalist, which…

    Finding Inspiration to Overcome Writer’s Block

    Can’t believe it’s been a week since I last posted! Apologies for that. This viral flu thing is getting me down. What’s more, I had a case of full-blown writer’s block. I’m sure we’ve all experienced it at some point. It’s not that I don’t have content planned, but the posts are November-specific, so this last week of October proved to be difficult. Then, it hit me. Instead of not writing anything, why don’t I write about the very issue of writer’s block? It turns out there are places close to home to find inspiration to overcome writer’s block. Here are just some ideas to get that creativity back on…

    Hydrocephalus and Spina Bifida Awareness Week 2018

    You may be wondering what’s with all the yellow today. I’m not changing my blog colour scheme, but this week, you will see some yellow popping up now and again. Why? It’s Shine’s Hydrocephalus and Spina Bifida Awareness Week 2018. For newcomers to my blog (welcome), here’s something you might not know about me. I have hydrocephalus. To find out more about my personal experience with the condition, you can read my post from 2016’s Awareness Week. I realise how lucky I am when it comes to medical conditions, but many are not as fortunate as me. Shine is the UK charity which supports people with hydrocephalus and/or spina bifida,…
