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.⠀
⠀
This butterfly picture was at London Zoo. ⠀

My 5 Favourite Blogging Tools

For any bloggers, there are plenty of tools we couldn’t live without. So I thought I would share my 5 favourite blogging tools.

I was having a conversation with someone recently and I compared running my blog to a car, I know it a strange thing to compare a blog to a car. But hear me out.

For a car you need – well tools to get it to run smoothly, well a blog is the same concept. With a car, you need a battery, petrol, oil and more than anything an actual engine.

With a blog, ok so you don’t need a battery, petrol, oil and an engine. But you do tools to get it running smoothly. For example, you need a blogging platform such as WordPress or Blogger (you can almost compare it to an engine of a car), you need graphics, plugins and texts.

Ok, someone going to argue with me that a car is a physical object – while a blog isn’t! You can’t physically touch a blog, can you? So why on earth do you need tools then?

And this is me getting back to my original point, comparing a car to a blog. Without any tools, neither one would work and it would all falls apart. What can go wrong with a car – is the same as a blog. Just because you can’t touch a blog, doesn’t mean it doesn’t fall apart. Because without tools – it does.

So I thought I would share with you my 5 favourite blogging tools, and I’m hoping it might give you a small insight on what tools are essential when running a blog.

Cameras:

I would be so lost without my cameras. Yes, I have more than one – but I do share them with my husband. I have a Canon 600d, and a 5d mark II. Each of these cameras takes amazing photos and I love using them. As I said in the past, I love going somewhere, taking photos and documenting it on here.

Stats counter:

This is a free stats counter that you sign up and use for free. It basically gives you an in-depth stats counter of your blog. Much more so then Google Analytic. It gives real-time view of when someone is on your site and what they clicked on, how long they are on your site and how they found your site. I find this so much more useful than Google Analytic.

WordPress:

What I’m calling the main engine of a blog. I have in the past tried Blogger, Typepad, Tumblr and yet I always find myself going back to WordPress. It just an all-round blogging platforms that does everything I need it to. I find it easy to use and I never had a problem with it.

Photoshop:

I have been using Photoshop for nearly 15 years! It the ultimate photo editor and another thing I would be lost without it. It helps bring my photos my life, especially as I work in raw camera files and just love using the camera raw filter and the presets. Some might argue that Lightroom is better, it is – but for a simple, easy – no-nonsense editor to use.

Microsoft Words:

I need a text editor to actually write out the main texts of the blog. I did once upon a time use the actual main blog text box to write out a blog post, but it kept crashing – so I now use Microsoft Words. It does help me with my writing and you can add hyperlinks in easily. Plus, I can save the document and have it on my record, in case the blog ever goes down.

Those were my 5 favourite blogging tools; I pretty much use them every day. Do you have any blogging tools to add? What do you use?
