5 Great Blogs to Read and Follow

One thing that inspired me to start blogging was reading other blogs written by young ambitious women. Their stories of learning tough life lessons, excelling in their career and following their passions encouraged me to do the same.

For over 2 years I've shared my own experience in this little corner of the internet. I have been able to express myself and give my own perspective on life as a twenty-something. By writing on this blog I have learnt a lot about myself.
5 Great Blogs-bloggers to read and Follow

I hope you enjoy these blogs as much as I do and maybe discover someone new:
This blog is amazing because of the combination of personal development, inspiration and beauty topics that Fiona writes about. As you know, I am also passionate about personal development. Fiona previously had a natural hair and beauty blog but has since pivoted her direction and got focused on her life, business and personal growth as a young woman.

She released this new blog in 2016 and I have been reading all her new content (and watching her YT videos of course) on life & well-being, love - being a wife, business - blogging & money and Self-Care - hair & beauty. This new blog grabbed my attention because of her decision to focus on pursuing her purpose in life and to inspire other women to do the same.
I'm sure you will appreciate what she is doing with her blog /brand as she grows and it expands worldwide.   

The Scientific Beauty by Sophie (now Dr. Sophie with a PhD)
A scientific beauty blogger, what a fabulous combination. As a woman in STEM (Science, Tech, Engineering, Maths) myself, it is fantastic to see other women in STEM who express all aspects of their lives and are passionate about a variety of things. Just because we are women in STEM that doesn't mean we can’t also love fashion and beauty.
Sophie writes about the real science behind the beauty products we use and explains the scientific terms into plain English. Her dedication to science and writing has helped her to land her dream job in science communication, which allows her to travel the world in style while doing what she loves.

Dephne’s blog is an extension of her wonderful YouTube channel. Her zeal for sharing her faith to the world boldly is something I admire about her. Dephne covers topics on Christianity, life as a woman of God and hair/beauty tips.

She is a talented author - with 3 books under her belt, fashion designer - she designs and makes most of her own clothes and speaker. If you are someone who is also developing their own walk with God, do check out her wonderful videos of prayers and bible studies packed full of empowering words sourced directly from the Bible. 

Her graceful and modern way of sharing God's word enheartens and uplifts your soul.     

Pretty Green Tea by Daisy
A lifestyle and travel blog that lets us watch(read) about Daisy’s life, travels and business. Her down to earth blog posts are relatable in many ways. Her blog posts on city escapes, business, personal development and mindfulness give real honest tips and advice on coping with life as a young adult.
The variety of topics covered on her blog keeps you reading and helps to propell you in actually taking action on her advice and recommendations.

Patricia Bright - Youtube star, wife, mother and business woman.
Most people know Patricia from her YouTube channel but I have come to really enjoy her blog too. She writes all about life, beauty, style and inspirational advice. She writes and talks about both outer beauty and inner beauty. Personal development and positivity are what motivates her to do and be the best she can be.  
Her confidence and determination to be a success in everything that she does while sharing her journey and lessons with the world is inspiring. If you want to fire up your #girlboss aspirations then she is one to follow.

One common thread that you can see with each one of these women is that they are pursuing both their career/business paths and their personal passions. That is exactly what I am striving to do in my life. As millennial women, we have a great advantage because of the many opportunities available to us to use our talents and thrive in multiple industries.

Although there are at least 20 other international bloggers I could share with you, I wanted to highlight the young women in the UK making it happen!

Hello 2019

I've taken some time out to think about the direction I want this blog to go in 2019. 

The most important thing for me is that my values are clear from the start. Going forward, I want to set the tone for my content and audience.
So let's start here: 
Things I've said Goodbye to in 2018:Hiding my Christian faith: I'm known for being all about productivity, personal development and a female engineer. As a woman of God, I am all those things and more.Fake friendships: being in a new city all I wanted to do was make new friends but as time went by I realised that some of these friendships do not align with my values and do not draw me closer to God. Wanting to control everything in my life - I need to trust God more, trust the process and walk in faith. 
2 Corinthians 5:7 (NKJV) For we walk by faith, not by sight.
What I'm saying HELLO to in 2019:
Serving my church and being of service in my community Focusing on what God is leading me to do: Things that align with God'…

How to Create an Empowering Vision Board

What is a vision boardA vision board is a visual representation of your hopes, dreams, and goals. It is a collection of pictures and words put on a board (or paper). Creating a vision board allows you to see daily, all the things you want to do, have and be.

I can show you better than I can tell you, here are some of my vision boards. These represent different areas of my life and I plan to keep them for a while. This weekend I plan to create my 2018 vision board. Keep reading and I will explain the different types.

5 Ways to Build Intentional Friendships

We’ve all heard the saying: you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with. So it’s absolutely important to have the right type of people around you, this is your inner circle (your circle of influence).

It’s been proven that we can only have a deep connection with just 5 people at any one time. So if you look at the closest 5 people in your life right now they’re the ones you connect with and are influenced by on a daily basis. The other tens or even hundreds of people you know or call ‘friends’ are actually friendly acquaintances. You can have up to 150 of these people in your life but you can’t have true friendship or influence with so many people at once.  

The biggest lesson I’m learning in my twenties is the importance of having and finding true friends. I’ve had to learn this lesson the hard way by getting hurt, bouncing back and knowing my values so that I can go out there and make better friendships.   
1. Choose your Friends
