Blogging | 15 Blog Post Ideas

15 Blog Post Ideas

We all have those moments where we have writers block so if you are stuck below are some ideas that might give you some inspiration!

#1 Interview Someone - An interview is a great way to add something a little different to your blog and I love reading these type of posts to get to know people better. You could do an interview with yourself to share more with your readers or interview your fellow bloggers. My friend Stef from Scottish Stef's Nails interviewed me a while ago for her blog and it was a lot of fun.

#2 Favourites - Share your favourite's with your readers. This could be monthly, yearly or one off posts and could cover a variety of different areas. For example, although my blog focuses on beauty products from time to time I also share other favourites too such as food, books and candles.

#3 Guides/Tutorials - Love makeup or craft? Why not try writing up a guide/tutorial for your readers to follow so they can re-create it.

#4 Share your experiences - This is a wide area and could cover a whole host of different blog post ideas from experiences within the blogging world, life or more specific topics.

#5 Tags - There's always tags floating around the internet which will give you a list of questions and can be a great way to add something different to your blog. 

#6 Collections - If you have an interesting collection of something such as makeup or other items you collect you can write it in a single or series of blog posts.

#7 Share your bucket list - A craze which has been around for a while is to have a bucket list which is basically just a list of things you want to do within a certain time period. I love reading these and seeing how everyone's goals in life differ.

#8 Wish Lists - These are really fun posts to create and I love reading them. My favourites are obviously fashion and beauty related but this can be applied to anything.

#9 Share your favourite bloggers/You Tubers - It's great discovering new blogs and You Tubers and I think it's so lovely when I see posts like this. Spread the word of the people you love to watch/read.

#10 Food Recipes - This one depends on the niche of your blog but if suitable maybe add some fun food related posts into the mix. These can be tutorials, recipes and simply foods you are loving at the moment.

#11 Holiday/Travel experiences - If your blog is more travel/lifestyle related why not try sharing some of your travel and holiday experiences with your readers? It's a fun way for people to learn about new places around the world and there's nothing better than word of mouth.

#12 Blogging Stories - Again, this is a wide area so you would write a whole host of posts on this one. Maybe think about what first got you into blogging? What you love about it? Tips/tricks you have learnt along the way?

#13 Start a series - I love reading series on blogs and it makes me go back time and time again. This can be anything such as 'Top 5 Lipsticks' etc the world is your oyster!

#14 Get to know you - This is similar to number 1 but instead of an interview type post with specific questions why not just tell your readers a little more about the person behind the blog?

#15 Favourite Apps - Lastly, everyone these days is either glued to a smart phone or tablet and using the thousands of apps available to us daily. Share your favourites with your readers!

I hope you found this blog post useful :)

Beauty | Spring and Summer Beauty Wish List

Spring and Summer Beauty Wish List

My Spring and Summer beauty wish list.....

I've totally given into the hype on this one after reading lots of reviews and watching endless You Tube videos. This palette looks gorgeous and perfect for Spring and Summer, particularly because I have blue eyes and these peach shades will really make them 'pop'. 

I'm also a big fan of Too Faced products anyway, their Better Than Sex mascara is a favourite of mine and I also have a couple of their other eyeshadow palettes, sadly not the chocolate palette yet but that is also one I would love to add to my collection.

Keep your fingers crossed this comes back into stock soon because I'm itching to try it!

Another Too Faced product that I've been wanting to try for a while now are the Melted Metal Lipsticks. I love the range of colours that are available, especially Macaron and love all the cute names they give their products. Surprisingly, I haven't ever tried any lip products by this brand before so i'm interested to see what they are like... they look very pigmented and glossy!

It's getting to that time of year where the weather is improving and I'm in need of a little help to get that perfect golden glow so a self tan is definitely a must for my wish list. In the past I have used a lot of products by St Tropez but I fancy trying something a little different and Fake Bake is brand I've tried in salons for spray tans but never used at home before.

I'm looking for a product which gives a natural tan, provides easy application, is quick drying and streak free. From reading reviews online it looks like Fake Bake would be perfect so I definitely want to give it a try!

Every time I go into Superdrug I spot these bath and shower gels and am amazed by how unique and delicious the fragrances sound. Again, this isn't a brand I have tried before but I definitely plan to as they sound wonderful. The packaging is cute and the colours of these products really jump out at you.

I've tried a few different primers over the years but i'm yet to find one I like as much as Benefit Porefessional which I turn to over and over again. I'm really keen to find an alternative and I've found a lot of people have been positive about the Laura Mercier Primer so I would love to try it. I'm a big fan of their skin care products but I've never actually tried any of their makeup before so this will be a first for me.

I love using different blushes in my makeup routine and a favourite brand of mine is Bourjois. They have a really lovely range of colours, the formula's apply beautifully to the skin and they are a must have for any makeup bag. 

Recently I've been wearing a lot of coral inspired makeup so I'd love to try this particular shade. I think it will add a lovely pop of colour to the cheeks for a simple, fresh look during Spring and Summer.

What is on your beauty wishlist?

Lifestyle | Cuppanut Review

Cuppanut Tea Review

It's no secret I'm a big fan of coconut whether it's using coconut oil as a hair mask, drinking coconut water or purchasing products such as moistuisers and shampoo's with a coconut fragrance so when I heard a new brand of infusions called Cuppanut were due to be launched on the market last month I was very excited to try it.

This innovative product has been launched by International Superstar Gareth Gates, who first shot to fame in 2002 during the reality television series Pop Idol and has been following a very successful career ever since. As well as continuing to tour around the country performing at his own gigs he has taken lead roles in musical theatre including Joseph, Les Miserables, Legally Blonde and more recently Footloose (to name a few). Now the star has turned his hand to business and due to a combination of his healthy lifestyle and experimenting in his kitchen has come up with his new venture, Cuppanut.

Cuppanut Tea Review

Cuppanut infusions are bio degradable tea bags filled with real coconut which is mixed with a variety of different flavours. The first is 'Coconut' which is pure white in colour and smells delicious. The taste is slightly sweet, clean and full of flavour without being overpowering.  To make, you simply add water, no milk or sugar is needed.  Whenever I drink this one it reminds me of hot sunny days and holidays due to the tropical fragrance. Coconut is well known for it's health properties including, reducing cholesterol and protecting against heart disease and stroke so it is definitely something which is becoming more popular and people are starting to introduce it into their diets more and more.

The second flavour is 'Coconut and Cranberry' which is equally as tasty and looks beautiful too. When water is added to the tea bag it turns a pretty shade of pink (my fave yay!) and you can instantly smell this sweet, fruity mix.. it is divine. This is one of those drinks which is tempting to drink far too quickly because it smells so good and you risk burning your mouth but believe me it is worth the wait. 

The final infusion is 'Coconut, Ginger and Turmeric' which has a more earthy flavour and turns the water golden. Not being a fan of ginger I was a little skeptical about this one when I first tried it but I have been won over by this unusual combination of ingredients.  This warm spiced tea has a hearty flavour which I really enjoy drinking in the evening. Ginger and Turmeric is also said to possibly have anti inflammatory properties.

The packaging of the Cuppanut infusions is simple and 'natural' looking due to the use of simple brown cardboard for the boxes. I think this no fuss packaging suits the brand perfectly as these infusions are full of natural, pure, raw goodness and no artificial colourings or caffeine. They are cute, the font is modern and they would definitely jump out at me on a shelf. When I opened them up I was also surprised to see how pretty the teabags themselves look. Each flavour has its own distinct colour and I've never seen any other 'tea' products like it.. they almost look too nice to use!

The thing I love most about these teas is not only are they good for you but they taste amazing whether you have them hot or cold (they would be great in the Summer in pretty glasses, with ice and fruit e.g cranberries). The three flavours are also so different that no matter what your mood is there is a Cuppanut for you!

Cuppanut will be appearing on your highstreet in a popular retailer soon but if you can't wait that long take a look at the Cuppanut website where you can order each box of teas online (delivery is fast). Each box contains 15 teabags and are priced at £4.20 per box. You won't be disappointed!

I very much looking forward to seeing what the future has in store for Cuppanut. It has now become my 'go to' drink.

What do you think of infused teas and which Cuppanut flavour would you most want to try?
