This is my end of summer and going into the autumn look. Those if I\'m honest, the day we took these photos felt like we were still in the middle of summer and Autumn was just a distant dream. ⠀
I\'m a little late to the linen dress trend that been filling up my Ig feed this summer. Still better late than never, here\'s a linen \'inspired\' dress from Primark. I say \'inspired\' as I don\'t think its strictly a linen dress and its proberbly some cheap knockoff.⠀

With Autumn just around the corner, It got me thinking of September/Autumn fashion and how I\'m looking forward to saying goodbye to my summer dresses and hello to oversize jumpers and cosy cardigan. I\'m trying to reclaim my love for the cardigan, a childhood fave of mine which I have seen to outgrown as I got older. ⠀
Starting with this Sainsbury TU embroidery cardigan which is so lovely to wear. I\'m now looking forward to wearing more cardigan throughout Autumn. Bring it on. ⠀

When your husband surprised you with a big bouquet of flowers and your first thoughts is - quick let me put on a pretty dress and take a photo of me holding it!⠀
(The only problem with that - you look tired on photos hence me hiding behind this bouquet.)⠀

A couple weeks ago, out of nowhere a butterfly flew into our home. This got me all emosh and I was certain it was an omen - a good omen. My husband just wanted it out of the house, but I wanted to keep it.⠀

5 Best WordPress Plugins to Use When Starting Out

Posted on

This a long-awaited follow up to a blog post I wrote a couple of years ago on how to start a blog from scratch. So you started a WordPress blog, what the best plugins to use when you are just starting out.

In the blog post, how to start a blog from scratch, I detailed how you can go about getting a blog latterly from scratch and what the best web host to use.

Well, I’m going a little step further, where I will show you the 5 best plugins to use for your new WordPress blog.

So why do we need Plugins?

Well, think of them as the building blocks of your blog. Each plugin helps your blog run smoother and enable you to have the blog you want. For example, If you want an e-commerce site, you can get a plugin for that, or if you want a photography portfolio on your blog, there will be a plugin that will enable to help you.

The best things with plugins are that there are hundreds and hundreds of them. There’s a plugin for every function available imaginable.

You can’t run a functional good WordPress blog without them. Overall, they stop the site from crashing or just breaking altogether.

So here are my 5 best WordPress plugins to use when starting out.

Akismet Anti-Spam

This is a super popular plugin, and often it already installed when you first set up your WordPress. It quite possible the best way to protect your site from spam. You do need to pay a monthly subscription, but it only £3 ($5) a month, and it does protect your site. My last site before I had this current one, was hacked. I lost everything – including the domain. Now I believe that at the time, I wasn’t protecting myself against spam and allowed hackers to get into the site. The first thing I did when I got this domain and set myself up again, was to use this plugin and protect myself against spam.

All In One WP Security

This is an essential plugin to install as it overall secures and protect your site. It is entirely free. It can block IP addresses, put up a firewall if needed and has spam prevention measure. I feel safer having this on my blog.

Classic Editor

WordPress recently switch from their classic editor to what is known as, ‘block editor’. My advice is to immediately install the classic editor as it will be so much easier to use. The block editor is a nightmare to work with, and I find it breaks quite often.

Yoast SEO

I wrote about this plugin before, but this is another to install immediately. It an all in one SEO solution and it will help your site SEO as it works on a traffic lights system.

Jetpack

Some people love it, while others hate it. I find this a handy plugin as it helps with stats, search engine optimization, social sharing, protection, backups, security, and so much more. It has tons of feature, and you can customize it to your liking. You can do a lot with this plugin.
