12 things that have happened since we last spoke

It’s been a hot minute hasn’t it?

Blogging has yet again taken a back seat in my life - the story of 2019 - but I have wanted to type and get back into the swing of things for ages now so I thought what better way than a little catch up with everything that’s been going on.

It’s been a good month since we last spoke properly, if you ignore my Easter decor blog post which was very much a photo diary whim post to record for my own future reading. So let’s have a catch up shall we?

Happy Easter 2019

I wanted to pop a little impromptu instant blog post up to say happy easter and show you my decorations. It’s a little late to give you inspiration for this year but I like to look back on these posts and see what I did and what my house looked like.

9 Mid Week Favourites

How I found the time to redesign my blog, merge my businesses, relaunch my social media accounts and blog for a whole week is beyond me when all of a sudden it’s been two weeks and I haven’t posted a single thing.

With that in mind and a free hour catching up on a Made in Chelsea from November (I am v far behind with my TV viewings) I thought I’d whizz a post out with a few of my Wednesday favs from the last coupla weeks.

The Blog | 2.0

Hello and welcome to twenty something meltdown version 2.0 - or more commonly known as gwennanrees.com

That’s right, a quiet weekend at home and a cheapskate move to avoid paying for multiple website hostings has resulted in a Monday morning change to my whole blogging brand.

Hello from 2019

It’s been a hot minute.

Last time we spoke it was a whole other year (anyone sick of that joke yet?) and I was probably waxing lyrical about how I have no time to blog and how I want to and then it was Christmas and here we are again about a month later.

AD | The Gift of a Break this Christmas

Starting a new job has been exhausting and whilst I’m fully in the swing of employment, everything else in my life has been a whirlwind so when Jet2 got in touch to talk Christmas breaks and hampers, it was a no brainer on my part.

This Christmas, for the last minute buys and the people you want to treat most - why not gift them the gift of a well deserved break.

5 Minutes With My Advertisers - December 2018 (the final countdown!)

Feels a bit bitter sweet writing this for potentially the last time. I have called it a day on advertising bloggers (for now at least) after two years of hard graft and lots and lots of lovely ladies sitting alongside me on my sidebar.

For December then, for the last one it feels fitting that all of my advertisers are repeats, are people who have been with me before and actually, some of the girls who advertised with me on my very very first month all them months ago.

Using Your Bullet Journal For Work

This weekend marks four whole months of being employed and self employed and it’s taken me about that long to remove all the confidential information out of the photos of my bullet journal so you guys can see it.

It took me about three weeks to commit to a work bullet journal and I haven’t looked back. I went for navy because I am a young professional now and it’s probably got enough space to last me until January and then I’ll be into another one already I think.

Of course, everyone’s work is different so the techniques I use in my bullet journal might not work for you but hopefully it’ll give you some inspiration anyway.

5 Minutes With My Advertisers - November 2018

So yes, the banner at the top of my blog is correct - I am finally calling it a day on blog advertising. I’ve offered 6 packages every single month for two years and I think in the face of a changing blogging community and my job change it’s time to give it a break. At least for now.

For the next two months though it’s all about the lovely people who have signed up to give these advertising slots the best send off, starting with these gems for November.

Halloween Decor Inspiration For 2018

A less wordy post from me today pals. I’ve been fretting about having these photos ready to go and no words to get out and then I realised - why do you even need words in a Halloween inspo post?

I want to get into the habit of absent minded blogging, of not fretting to make the perfect blog post, to just chuck some images for inspo up online and let you all have a nosey at my Halloween decorations.

But I digress, this isn’t about the state of blogging or where I’m taking my content - this is about Halloween for 2018 and the decorations I’ve collected over the year.
