In case you didn’t see my stories Instagram this week, my little hashtag #thelazygirllife just hit over one hundred posts! I started it honestly not thinking that anyone would even bother to use it, but you did, and I bloody love you for it. I also talked on my stories for the first time, and shockingly people didn’t hate it. So that was nice! We all know that I wouldn’t do it unless it was for good reason, and that very good reason is that I am starting a newsletter. *party emoji’s*
It’s something that I wanted to do since day 1 of signing up to Grow & Glow. I love reading newsletters, and having stuff come right to my inbox means that I don’t have to go searching for it (I’m lazy, duh?!). I have always felt much more part of a community when I’ve signed up to newsletters and so I went ahead and created my very own one, didn’t I?! Eeeek.
So before you all rush to sign up (lol plz do), I wanted to write a little blog post letting you know what my little newsletter will contain!
The Usual Newsletter Stuff
Of course, the lazy girl life newsletter will have my latest blog post in it, or a blog post that no-one has read for 100 years. Either way, it will have something new that I have written recently. I’m actually looking forward to this bit purely because it means I need to be better at actually publishing all those drafts I’ve got waiting to be finished.
My favourites from the hashtag
I share these every Wednesday on my Instagram stories anyway, I know, but it’s just another chance to share my favourite posts and for you to find some new accounts. Everyone that has used the hashtag so far (minus one random rogue meme post) is lovely, and they all have SUCH NICE INSTRAGRAM AESTHETICS so, you need to see them. Basically.
I also just want to support the lovely people that are supporting me by using my hashtag! It’s a little bit of appreciation for you guys.
A blogger or blog post that I’m loving at the moment
I want to start sharing other people’s content, and if I see something I love or really enjoyed reading I will now include it in the newsletter. I love the community that comes with blogging and I want to contribute to building that by sharing your work with people that I think will like it!
So, you’ll find a little section in my newsletter with an introduction to a blogger and a blog post of theirs that I loved and wanted to share with the world.
What I am listening to, reading and watching
Apparently, people quite like it when I share what I’m listening to, reading and watching on Instagram so I thought that I may as well pop it in the newsletter too. I don’t really listen to music, so it will be one of my 10,000 podcast recommendations (sorry not sorry). If you like that kind of thing, you should also have a look at my podcast highlight on Instagram, it is FULL of recommendations with ratings and a little review too.
I have just started reading properly again! Since starting my new job, I finally have space in my brain to read. That sounds weird, but in my old job I was just SO busy all the time that my brain honestly couldn’t handle even attempting to read. I’ve read two books in the last week! I read on my way to work (45 min bus ride.. LONG!) and during my lunch break so that I actually take my full one hour lunch break. I’ve also tried to start reading before bed so that I fall asleep a bit easier, but realistically it makes ZERO difference. I just want to read for like 6 hours… oops.
Me and Steve watch a lot of TV, so I am also going to be sharing a bit of what we’re watching too. At the moment we’re watching House on Amazon Prime because I’ve never seen it *I KNOW, WEIRDO* but it is sooooo good. So so good.
A lazy girl life hack
A new thing that I’m going to try is pop in a little lazy girl life hack. I’m always looking for ways to make my life a little bit easier, and less effort and so I’ll be sharing these with you! Honestly, I haven’t massively thought about what these are going to be yet, but expect things like easy meals, cake, life organisation tips and stuff like that.
Hopefully some of them will be useful!
If you think that sounds right up your street, then you should FOR SURE sign up. Right now. Go on. Do it. You won’t regret it.
There are a thousand sign up forms everywhere, in my sidebar, my footer in the pop up box you probably clicked the close button on and now right below this *yay for ease*
