Wow. I have not blogged for a loooong time.
I have been very inconsistent with blogging, school/life has been a bit busy and I haven't had an opportunity to do much of this sort of thing. But that's ok because I will just post when I can. Ahahaha this is so weird writing again.
Today I had few free minutes and finally got round to looking at the blog 'iamlucymoon.com'. She relaunched her blog not too long ago and her's is a youtube I really enjoy watching and I love her blog too. I thought I'd share it in case anyone else wants to read it. Her blog really well thought out, not to mention pretty! Go have a look >>

Today I have some very exciting news...I'm re-launching my blog!
I've been blogging for just over a year now and I really love it.I know that for sure. But it's only really just now that I'm really getting to know my writing style , and the blogging route I'm going down.
From the start of this blog, I've had troubles naming it. Originally I called it Zoëkins as it's a nickname thats sort of stuck since I was very little, but I didn't feel as though it was quite right for a blog name. It sounds sweet, and is personal to me, but in a way is a little bit childish. And I didn't want to go for something overly generic, or just my name. so introducing...Zoë loves!
One of my goals for this year was to make myself feel like I'm really happy with my blog, and I thought I would start by designing it how I want it. So made the decision to have a splurge on a blog design I really loved, and one I could design a bit more personally too. And I picked one out from pip dig.
I saw a post on Tilly's blog (http://lifeastillyrose.co.uk/2017/01/03/going-self-hosted-what-is-it-all-about/) about how she went self hosted and I was really interested by this. I decided I really wanted to restart this a bit, and make it really how I want it. So this means leaving wordpress, and going self hosted. If you want to find out more about self hosting yourself, definitely go check out Tilly's post. It was super helpful and she's much better at explaining tech-y things than I would be.
This also means that my website name will be changing. And even though I know that a lot of you come onto my blog through links in my instagram and pinterest, for those of you looking for it on a search engine, make sure to remember that this has changed. (www.zoeloves.co.uk)
I hope you're all excited for the change, I know I am!
Thank you for reading as always and I'll see you on my new site, very soon!

2017 starts tomorrow (!!). Another year has whizzed by, and I'm genuinely amazed how crazy fast it's gone.I thought now would be the time to share with you some of my aims I'm going to try and stick to in the upcoming year...
I seem to always have that one resolution about ‘eating less chocolate’ or ‘getting more exercise’- that one that I never really achieve – or do for a month or so but then by Feburary start feeling rubbish about myself not doing it and not bothering.
And then I always used to write pages and pages of resolutions that I knew realistically were never going to happen. So again this year, (like last year)I’m only doing five. And this way, I can at least try to achieve them all. It would be really cool if you too, would post five New Years resolutions for 2017 below in the comments and we can update each other on our progress. And a special good luck for any of you trying to eat more healthily this new year!
So these are my resolutions:

It feels like so long since I have sat down and written to you guys - and I have seriously missed it!
So I thought I would come back with a fresh start, and a new blog design.
It's finally September which can only mean one thing...
AUTUMN IS ON IT'S WAY!
Here are some of the things that I love about Autumn, and am super excited for:
What are your favourite things about this season?
(I'd love to see in the comments, and also if you like the new blog layout!)
Love Z xoxo
It's not often I just sit down and write whats on my mind. But today, thats what I'm just going to do.
I feel like since this time last year, I have learnt so much. A lot of things have changed and it has kind of put things into perspective. Although things seem big at the time, in perspective, it's only a little part of your life and you don't need to get caught up over it. I've found myself getting so upset over little things that don't really matter, and I think I would be happier without that.
(This blog post is a complete ramble of random things I'm so sorry!)
6 things to be happy about...
I wanted to write some thing a little bit different today. And I promise I am completely and honestly going to be myself writing this (hahaha. hence the title)
I feel like that growing up with social media every where, and having to balance that with school, exams, friends and a whole bunch of other stuff can be confusing and stressful at times. Especially when the internet and the world can be really scary and a negative place. Of course this is my little happy place of the internet and I make it as positive as I possibly can, but sometimes I think that I can be judged for being who I am, or judged for being some one else. I think that sometimes myself, or any one can change yourself just to fit in with that and sometimes I just need to think to myself, is this really what I want...? Should I be doing this for me?
At times it's really hard to be confident enough to do some thing as normal as being yourself. It is SO important to just be yourself, because otherwise YOU won't get to where YOU want to be. Even if it's something as wearing, I don't know, a neon pink scrunchie to school because YOU like it! If some one doesn't like you, for being you, then how much should they really matter to you?
And I'm going to finish with that. Next time you're making a decision, please ask yourself, is this what I want?
all the hugs and squeezes, Zoë:)xxxx
