Sunday Diary #1

Boarding the plane to Zante / Photo collage from Zante / Birthday presents: JC soirees & Vivienne Westwood Necklace / Ryan and pom / Pom Pom / My blog / Reviewing The Damned

Hi everyone! 

Sorry for the lack of posts this week. I’m currently blogging from Birmingham as I’m staying with my boyfriend, so I haven’t been able to get online much! I’ve decided to start doing a Sunday Diary blog. I have no idea whether this will be a weekly thing, it depends on how interesting my life is that week. I love personal blogs, I think it’s a great way to get to know bloggers better. These are photos from over the past few weeks so it’s more of a July summary, so we’ll just see how it goes…

♡ I just got back from a girl’s holiday in Zante. We had a pretty wild week and I drank way too many Sex on The Beach cocktails. We stayed in a really nice hotel and found some great bars. If you ever go to Zante, check out “Chevy’s”, an American diner which opens up as a bar at night and did the most amazing oreo shots.

♡ I arrived back early morning on my birthday. It was lovely to get back to my boyfriend and puppy. I hateee getting older. I don’t know about you but I still talk about “When I was 15…” like it was last week. I bought a pair of JC soirees which I blogged about and the Vivienne Westwood necklace was a birthday gift from my boyfriend, Ryan.

♡ If you follow me on Instagram (lydiarosexo) you will have been inflicted by my puppy spam. I should probably just make her her own Instagram, right? She is the sweetest thing in the world!

♡ I did my first blog on July 5th, went on holiday and came back to 3 followers. When I got back I started networking / joining in bbloggers chats and taking things a little more seriously. I hit 100 followers a few days ago in the space of ten days and around 80 or so on Bloglovin which I’m so so happy about! A few years ago I did a fashion blog where I posted 2 or 3 times a week to 100 followers for 18 months. It’s nice to come back with a fresh mind and start blogging again, everything has changed so much and I definitely won’t give up this time.

♡ Last Thursday I went to Kendal to review The Damned. It was an amazing gig! For me this Summer has been all about getting work experience and writing writing writing. I’m currently in the Top 3 bloggers in the county competing in Cumbria Live’s “Big Blogger” competition, which is what I was reviewing the band for. If all goes to plan my second published article will be going in the paper this Thursday which I’m so excited about. There’s only two more weeks of the competition left so I really need everyone’s support as the competition is judged on hits. I have an interview with Missguided stylist / fashion blogger SaraLuxe up at the moment and my review of The Damned will be going online later this week. I’m also one of Hit The Floor Magazine‘s new fashion writers and will be starting at the end of next week!

If you have any Sunday Diary /Summary / Instagram round-up kind of posts, feel free to link me! I love reading them.

Lydia Rose,

    omg I did the same thing! (blogging a couple of years ago, and getting into blogging again) I started my blog a fresh, as I didn't feel inspired to write on my old one .. Odd though haha
    Thankyou so much for your comment on my post, I replied on it, and I don't know if it shows up to people when I reply on comments! I really love your blog design, did you design it yourself? I am going to be getting mine redesigned at the end of the month and I can't wait!! 🙂 xx

      Hi! Sorry for the late comment back I've been away! I never seem to get notifications to my e-mail when people reply so hopefully you get this haha. Yeah, I think a lot of bloggers have started again and then ended up doing much better! It definitely seems to be working so far 🙂
      I'm glad my comment helped, I hope you can patch things over but sometimes people really do do just such shitty things 🙁
      My boyfriend designed it for me! I did pay £15 to have it done once but it just wasn't how I wanted it, having my bf do it meant I could jab him with a stick until it was totally perfect bahaha. Good luck with your redesign! xo

    I absolutely love your blog design! I didn't realise people paid to get their blogs designed professionally, makes sense now why so many people have lovely blogs haha!
