Oh hello, June, where did you come from?  Seriously how is it June already? I'm going to try and make the most of summer this year - despite everything else being rubbish. I'm going to enjoy myself and have fun in the sun. Sound like a good plan, doesn't it? ⠀

Oh hello, June, where did...

I must admit that I did get bored with balcony/mirror outfit pictures and wanted a more nature/organic photos backdrop. Well now summer is right around the corner, and the sun is indeed shining, and with news that lockdown resections are now easing, I now thought it was the perfect opportunity to go out into the wood and show you this floral Zara dress.⠀
I brought this dress at the very beginning of this year and was keen to show you guys this as I think it a lovely summer dress to wear, plus, I also thought it would go nicely with my red hat.⠀
For someone who has been cooped up, I must admit that it was nice to go into my local woodland and to walk around for an afternoon. I think it was also lovely for Richard, my husband, to pick up his camera again and to take some photos. The whole pandemic has put a pause on his professional photographer profession, and he hasn’t needed to use his camera much.⠀
It was lovely to put on a dress and to make myself look a little presentable. It got me out of my loungewear for an afternoon. The experience made me feel a little more like myself, and it put me in a good mood. As much as I like comfy loungewear, I’m still someone who wants to dress up.⠀
I’m hoping I can go out more this summer, of course still observing the social distancing rule, and doing more outdoor outfit photos. I’m also hoping this summer to wear more of my summer outfit and to feel more like myself.⠀

Usually, when I do an outfit post or picture, I like to dress up and show you some pretty dress. But this time I thought I would show you a few of my casual wear and what I wear on a day to day basis. I must admit, as much as I love to dress up, I wouldn't exactly go to Tesco in them. So on a day to day basis, I'm usually in jeans and a top. ⠀

If I were to describe my style, it would be summed up in two words: quirky and fun. I'm sure you realise by now I don't like boring black fashion – I do fun, bright, colourful style. Case in point is this Collectif watermelon dress. You can't get more quirky and fun fashion than this, can you?⠀
I like my clothes to reflect a lot of my personality, eternally youthful while also quirky and fun. Yup, that pretty much summed up me. The saying, you are who you are by the clothes you wear, really does hold up with me.⠀
I'm still that little girl who had a dressing up box as a child and would play dress-up; now I just have a wardrobe filled with more clothes than I could ever need as my dressing up box. I still like to have fun with my clothes, and I haven't lost that childhood wonder about clothes. And I don't think I ever will.⠀
Overall, what I'm saying is that this Collectif watermelon dress reflects who I am as a person and also my style. I also believe it represents how fashion shouldn't be all serious; it should be fun and should put a smile on a person's face.⠀

My Best Twitter Advice On Gaining New Followers

I love Twitter, not just because it is the best way to get traffic to the blog. But also it so lovely to talk to a wider audience. Over time I like to think I have perfected the best way to gains new followers on Twitter, so here is my best Twitter advice on gaining new followers.

I’m a tweeting idiot, there I said it. But in all honesty, I don’t think I’m along on this. There isn’t a day gone by when I’m not using the platform, whether it’s to contact a brand to work with, or just having a good natter with someone. Someday all I do is just look at the popular hashtags and reads everyone tweets. What I’m saying is, I use Twitter every day and this makes me a tweeting idiot.

Anyway, I found last year that Twitter was a great source of traffic to the blog. This is amazing and I really didn’t do a whole lot, really. All I did was make sure all new blog posts get tweeted as soon as it got published. I did this using a feature on Jetpacks. I also retweeted a blog link once or twice a day at different times. That all I did really. But somehow, the lack of actions – has worked for me and I get a lovely amount of traffic.

I also how noticed, I seem to be gaining a healthy amount of followers as well. This is amazing and once again I didn’t really do a whole lot. Ok, so I did something – or otherwise, you wouldn’t be reading this.

Here what I consider my best Twitter advice on gaining new followers. But before we get into it – I would like to say that it does take time and patience. There is no really simple formula, just wait and people will come.

Make your profile attractive:

Don’t just have lines and lines of boring tweets with no pictures. Make your overall profile attractive. So have pictures and even videos. Have a cover art that matches your blog/brand, also have a clear profile picture as that what going to make people look at it in the first place. When linking a blog post, make sure you also use an image. If you see a picture from another tweet, then retweet it. One thing I have done recently has a picture of the day tweet, where I just posted a pretty picture with the hashtag: #pictureoftheday.

Keep your politic to yourself:

If you counting your twitter page to be a great source of traffic to the blog, it might be best to keep your politic stance to yourself. Don’t use your profile to rant and rave about how you feel about whatever happens in the world. Of course, I’m not asking you to bury your head in the sand. Just remember if you want to work with brands, they will look at everything on your twitter page – including your likes. My advice would be to have a separate private account and there you can rant and rave about your heart content.

Talk to fellow Tweeters:

I’ll admit this took some time for me, but I soon got over my fear, and overall I had nothing to worry about really. Don’t be afraid or shy to talk to fellow tweeters. If you see a tweet where someone is asking questions, respond by tweeting back. If you found a blog post enjoyable, then feel free to tweet that person and tell them that you did. Don’t be a loner, is what I’m saying. I have found the more you talk to someone on Twitter, the more you often get grouped up for #fridayfollowing. A hashtag where some tweeters round up people on who they have talked to throughout the week.

Be yourself:

That the key thing on Twitter, where you can only be yourself. If you start pretending to be someone, then people will catch on really quickly. Plus it can get pretty tiring putting on an act all the time. Say whatever is on your mind, feel to post something cool you have seen while out. Feel free to vent when something breaks. Showcase your humour and tweet a joke. Remember your Twitter profile page is an extension of your blog, if you start being two different people then no one will care and won’t follow.

Scheduling Tweets:

Don’t publish half a gazillion tweets all at once, that a sure fire way for people to unfollow you or to block you. HootSuite is your friend for this. You can schedule tweets to whatever suit you best. Just don’t go overboard and essentially spam your profile.

 

Those were my best Twitter advice on gaining new followers.  Do you have any to add?

    I’d agree with all of these, I think I’m guilty of too much scheduling and not enough chat the past year, I miss twitter chat so will look out for you there. #GlobalBlogging
