Behind the Blog: A Day in the Life

A Day In The Life Of A Lifestyle Blogger

Ever wondered what it’s like? Well today I’m going to take you through this typical Saturday full of blogging things and productive work.


I wake up- sadly. I have to be honest here, the first thing I do when I open my eyes is grab my phone and scroll through Instagram and my emails- while still in bed. It’s not the best thing to do right in the morning but it’s what I do! Hopefully, I’ll work on waking up more naturally before reaching for my phone straight away. While I eat breakfast – not before taking a picture of my lovely cereal for this post, I watch a couple of videos on youtube. Some of my favourite channels to watch right now are Ladylike (Buzzfeed), Perksoflaur and Amber Scholl.


After my first hour of being awake I now get started on some school work. This is because I feel the most motivated in the morning over the evening. Otherwise I jut procrastinate and get nothing done! Here I was working on some Chemistry revision and a story for my English homework.


Time for a break from school work! I started taking some photos for my blog and some flat lays for my Instagram.


After my little photo sesh I decided to hop in the shower and pamper my skin a bit. I used some new products my Dad got me from Lush. Also can we talk about the horrible new Snapchat update? Glad to here they will be changing it back!


My boohoo order finally arrived! As soon as it came I had to try absolutely everything on so for the next hour or so I went through everything trying it on etc. Expect to be seeing a haul on these items soon. There was only one or two items I’m going to be returning.


By now I realised I should probably import all my photos from my camera over to my computer. This is always such a long process because I then have to mail some to my phone, edit them and put them to the correct size for my blog posts.


I’d finished sorting out my pictures and started writing up this blog post and a few others.


My parents came home from work and I had dinner with my family and we had a bit of a catch up.


The rest of my day from here on was just winding down and watching all my favourite shows! If you’re looking for some new shows I’d recommend Chicago Fire, The Good Doctor and Nashville. Then I’m off to bed.

This post is a collaboration with Milly you can go and see her “Day in the Life” over on her blog! Thank you for collaborating with me it was really fun. I hope enjoyed this little insight into my day!

    The first thing I do is grab my phone, think it’s a generation thing but it’s so bad isn’t it. Would love to wake up naturally with no alarms!

    Yes it is bad! My phone is the last thing I see before I fall asleep and the first when I wake up – bit ashamed of that!
