Monthly musings: May


So, May; where have you gone?

It’s been a busy little month – here’s a round up of my favourite bits…

New things I’ve done on my blog

🌸 I was nominated for a Liebster awardΒ  – I was thrilled to be #newbloggerontheblock and 3 other awards (which I will post about soon!)

🌸 More of you lovely people are visiting my site – over 250 visitors this month (making my soul sing) and I also had my highest views ever in one day (61 is the number to beat!)

🌸 I’ve started The Kindness ChallengeΒ – encouraging positive energy, kind thoughts and beautiful actions

May has been marvellous – I’ve been out and about, eaten excellent food and consumed cocktails, hit publish more times than previously, participated in a few challenges and connected with loads of you lovelies.

But the month of May has now moved on.

Thank you for all your support and remember, whatever the next month brings – live each day as if it’s a new start; find the magic and continue to shimmer.

How was your May? Tell me about your favourite bits in the comments below.

  3. Eeek, thanks for the link! What exactly is in a toastie? It looks like what we call a grilled cheese sandwich? But…does yours have brown sauce? Looks delish! I can’t wait to see what June has in store for you!

    1. Ha – they’re basically like a grilled cheese sandwich, but I had a sweet one which was basically chocolate & caramel spread on bread & the whole thing was toasted. No cheese. Delish I can tell you πŸ™‚
