I have said it before and I will say it again. Time is flying by waaaay too quickly. Please slow down! I say that because maybe I had so much consuming my month and so many challenges to overcome that I didn’t even have one ME day. I must admit April was so much better than March. So it looks like things are on the up. April was such a busy month for me I had my birthday, reconnected with loads of old friends, started a job and moved house. Yeah crazy right. However I am not all settled into my home and my job, and I am super excited for things to come. So Bonjour May.


Things are not about to slow down for me. I am still drowning in boxes with bits and bobs scattered everywhere. So I have still to really unpack even though my house finally feels like a home. My job is going great, I have had my first client meeting, I manage socials for several brands and I get to write so blogs. I mean I couldnt ask for a better role hey. I have some exciting things coming up to. I have speed mating this week which I may vlog. Its basically speed dating but to make friends. It sounds intriguing and fun haha. Its also national museum at night day, this is where all the museums around the UK open past dark. I cant ย wait for this there will be a DJ and the are projecting things on the wall so I cant wait. Not only that but my papa is coming over for a visit, I am going to see an art installation and catching up with more friends. Its chaotic, busy but I love it.


I just wanted to see how far I have come and as I am trying to blog more whether it has made a difference. I can take a look at last months stats, what I wanted to achieve and my goals for this month too.

Instagram : I wanted 6,500. I got to 6020. I think for June I want 6,250. IG is harder to grow nowadays.

Twitter : I wanted 2,750. I got to 2658. I think for June I want 2,800. I dont think my growth has been that bad.

YouTube : I wanted 30o subscribers. I got 302 WOO HOO. ย I think for June I want 325.

Page Views : I wanted 52,000 page views. I got 36,943. I think for June I want 40,000.

Unique Visitors : ย I wanted 16,000 visitors. I got 13,486. I think for June I want 15,000.

Maybe my expectations were a little too high, however I still think my stats are great, and next month I can really calculate how much Ive grown looking at past stats.

How was April for you?
