So something very exciting that I thought I would share with you all is my new little venture where I have became an online tutor aiming to teach children in China, Taiwan and Japan English. This is something extremely new to me as I’ve had no previous teaching experience, you might know that I have a degree in Multimedia Journalism so this is way outta my comfort zone!
It’s actually crazy to me how this came about, it was honestly like a sign from the universe. One day I was on Twitter and saw another blogger mention that she made money by teaching English online, she was a travel blogger (for the life of me I can’t remember her name but I will look on Twitter and let you know) and the job was perfect because she could do the job while moving around, just as long as she had a decent enough WIFI. I kinda thought to myself, oh wow that sounds fantastic and would be ideal especially while we’re all stuck at home, a couple of days later I was browsing Indeed just seeing what was in the area and an ad came on to teach English online … see what I mean about the sign. I applied and was offered an interview the next day, literally the quickest I’ve ever had a response from a job!
So something that I wanted to write a little about is my recent decision to give up meat and become a Vegetarian, don’t worry this isn’t going to be one of those posts where I urge you to do the same and tell you all about the animal industry, it’s just a life choice I’ve made and wanted to share it with you all.
I had been toying with the idea of giving up meat for a while, I think my guilty conscious just caught up with me because every time we would drive past a lamb or a cow I would just feel awful, not to mention Martin used to work on a farm so has filled me in with all the ins and outs, which breaks my heart. Like I said I don’t want this to be a pushy blog post so if you’d like any info from me about what goes on then just let me know and I’ll do a separate post.
Hey everyone, how are you? I hope you’re all doing great!
So I know I’ve been a little MIA for a few weeks and for that I’m so sorry, I mean not that you’re all sat there asking yourself “where’s Carolanne these days?” Anyway just in case you might be a smidge interested why I’ve been absent from the blogging world I thought I would just do a quick post filling you in.
Hey everyone so I thought I would do another little update about how I’m getting on during lockdown, probs should tell you now that this might be a bit depressing so if you’re here for laughs and stuff then today ain’t the day I’m afraid.
This week has been really, really tough, ain’t gonna lie I’m struggling being in this house. I mentioned in my previous check in post that Martin’s family who I’m in lockdown with are not practicing the social distancing rules and it just keeps on getting worse. His mam is literally out the house every day, sometimes twice a day, his sisters are coming and going as they please even though two of the three don’t live here and I really don’t know how much more of it I can take … I’m truly scared that this is going to cause me some sort of mental breakdown because I cant cope! It’s like they can’t get it into their heads the risks that doing this can have on everyone else, like I said in my previous post not being in control of my own health is awful.
Hey you cool cats and kittens … sorry I couldn’t help myself!
So I know that now we’re reaching week three of lockdown, boredom is definitely starting to settle in … I know for me it is anyway! I’ve been trying to keep myself occupied so I thought I would share a few little ideas with you in the hopes of easing your pain even a tiny bit.
Do an Easter Egg Hunt – You don’t need to have kids in your household to have some fun with chocolate, the other day I decided to make a lil hunt for my boyfriend by hiding some eggs around the house and writing clues for him to help find them … honestly why am I so fun? For the person hiding the eggs and coming up with the clues this will probably occupy more of your time than the one whose actually finding them, let me tell you thinking of clues that rhyme can be tricky. Martin enjoyed it, well at least he said he did but he got lots of chocolate from it so I’m sure he’s happy. Not gonna lie I wish he would think of these fun things for me to do … guess I’m the creative one in this relationship.
Heyy guys, so I thought I would make this blog post a lil chatty, life update one and just let you know how I’m doing with the whole lockdown situation we got going on here. Ain’t gonna lie, kind of only doing this post because I’m really lacking inspiration at the moment on what to write … anyone else having trouble getting motivated?
In general I’m good, I’m healthy and all my family are healthy, which is of course the most important thing and I’m really grateful for that. Since I’m back living at Martin’s parents house, I’m obviously not seeing my family so group FaceTime and WhatsApp’s are occurring, even though they’re hectic and you can’t hear yourself think, I’ve really enjoyed being able to speak to everyone at the same time, kinda glad we’re all not self isolating together though ‘cos I think we’d all go mad!
Hey everyone, so with everything that’s going on in this crazy world at the moment I came up with an idea to write a lil post about some of the small businesses I’m really fond of that I came across online, mostly through Twitter.
I thought it might be a nice idea to show my support for them as I know a lot of people are struggling financially with this self isolation process, I’m not saying these businesses in particular are struggling because I have no idea but never the less I just wanted to share with you guys some of the hard working people I see on my timeline.
Recently over on my instagram I’ve been uploading a few make up looks and just getting a bit creative using cartoons from my childhood as inspiration. I’ve bloody loved doing these so much, they’ve just taken me back to being a kid and not gonna lie, I kinda wish I could just sit and re watch them over and over again.
Anyway I thought I would share a couple of the looks with you on here to see what you thought and if you think I should have a go at doing some more! Let me know in the comments.
Howdy guys so today’s post is me asking a lil favour from you people, I know you’re probably thinking, ‘but Carolanne, we come here to get content from you, not to give you stuff’ well apologies but ya’ll are the best people out there so who else better to get some inspiration from?
I’m really wanting to start reading more this year, well start reading again! I used to be such a huge bookworm when I was younger but growing up I’ve kind of lost touch with my love of reading, which is such a huge shame.
Anyway, at night time myself and Martin usually wind down by laying in bed on our phones and I kind of want to break that habit … my obsession with Tik Tok is getting out of hand folks!
So what I want from you lovely lot are some book recommendations, i’m hoping to get my head stuck into some horror, thriller, psychological type of books and would love it if you could point me in the right direction. Anything that’s gonna have me spooked, getting chills or just saying ‘no way’ is perfect!
If you could leave your recommendations in the comments or get in touch on twitter (@carolannedavies) I would greatly appreciate it and I promise the next post will be my usual, hilarious or make up filled post … deal?
Hey guys, how are you all? Today I thought I would do a lil post sharing with you how I style my naturally curly hair. If you don’t know I only started embracing my natural hair about nine months ago, before that I straightened my lil mop, I wont go into the why and things, I wrote a post about it all a while ago so I’ll link that in within this sentence.
Honestly my styling is not long and its not particularly impressive but I wish I would have seen articles or whatever like this when I was younger about curly hair, because maybe I wouldn’t have hated it so much, so if sharing this encourages another naturally curly gal to brave her curls then I’m here for it.
