Monthly Roundup // What You Missed in May

Another month comes to an end - how do you guys feel about hitting the halfway mark into the year? I feel excited, I adore mid-summer and can't wait to have some real sun that stays for more than a few days at a time - I can't wait for hubby to be off on his holidays so we can do lots of fun family things and I look forward to seeing where the next few months takes us. 

At this moment in time I feel like there's a lot of change emotionally, mentally and in all areas of our life to be honest which has spilled over to my blogging life. You may have noticed there's not been as many posts - don't worry I don't plan to leave the blogging world anytime soon but I do at times get frustrated, disenchanted at the bitchiness as well as the other bloggers, PR companies, brands and certain comments. We all go through it even outside of the blogging world and I am the type who holds it in until it suddenly gets to me, at that point I find taking a step back and reassessing where I'm going and working on reducing my stress really helps - I do plan to post more blog how to's, and behind the blogging curtain type posts because I think it's important for others to really see what the world of blogging is really like. 

Enough about the negatives, the positives are that things can only get better, right? If you missed some of my May posts now's the time to catch up, these are my top ten posts from the last few weeks...

P.S There is a blog sale page coming up, I'm seriously clearing out everything (or near enough) in order to clear the clutter and start again (not literally).
