#blackouttuesday

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.⠀

How To Choose a WordPress Theme

 

howtochooseawordpresstheme

In the second part of my marketing & blogging series, I will be explaining to you on what make a good working WordPress theme. Having a working WordPress theme will benefit your site massively, for example if it a business website it will impact on how customers view your business and if you’re a blogger it will also impact on how people read your site. I spend a lot of my time explaining to my clients the massive benefit of using WordPress, what I don’t explain so much on what theme or style to choose from.

I’m going to skip over the explanation of what a WordPress theme is, as I’m sure you already know the basic stuff. So you have set up the WordPress site and you have come face to face with the basic bog standard theme that is already installed – what next and how to choose. Here are 4 tips to be aware of when choosing a theme.

Responsive

This simple means that the site will change to fit the size of screen you’re viewing it on. What this mean is in today’s world where everyone has a phones or a tablets the site layout need to fit on those screen devices without it losing any important data. I know myself there is nothing worst going on a website on your phone where all you want is telephone number and having to scroll around. A client website I helps designed a few months ago, 80% of the traffic is from mobile devices which in turned has pulled in more business.  A lot of newer blog templates are now built with responsive in mind, and will say in the description on whether it’s a responsive layout.

Readable

Do any of you remember the awful myspace layout? The flashing gif background and the black text on a black layout!! Fortunately that trends soon disappeared to the clean interface of Facebook. Currently the trend in web design is for minimal templates, with white background and big pictures. Now think about this – if you are on a site with a dark background and light coloured text, would you stick around or hit the ‘back button’ on your browser? I think you wouldn’t as it would give a headache trying to make sense of it all. It’s well documented that light-coloured text causes eye strain and headaches, and I’m guessing giving people a headache isn’t the top of your list. There a reason why all books are printed on white paper and black ink.

Customisable

Most pre-made themes can be customised to some extent if you’re not familiar with advanced html coding. For example a very basic theme might allow you change around some pre-made colour scheme while, there are others that will let you change almost every aspect of your site appearance. This is a case of what you want really and how much you’re willing to pay as there are theme which change your site appearances, tend to be more expensive but give you more versatility.

Where to buy theme?

A good place to buy a theme is Themeforest, which is basically a giant marketplace where people can buy and sell themes. This site is especially good for more business website and there is an option for someone to customised it for you, but why do that when I can do it for you.
