Embracing Technology

Life changes and with it so do your daily routines.  Since Christmas, as well as starting to follow lots of new blogs on very varied subjects from fashion to mimimalism to makeup, as I've mentioned previously, I've also been seriously getting into watching YouTube videos, which on the whole I find very informative on all manner of subjects.

After the first initial flush of interest, I've settled into a new routine of watching them, mainly whilst doing the ironing in the kitchen.  I save them up and then watch several in a row, catching up with the particular vloggers I follow, whilst keeping on top of the laundry.  It works well and I find that this is a much better use of my time than sitting at the kitchen table watching them.  (Which I do still do occasionally, mainly when there's no ironing or other work to be getting on with).

As I've mentioned in previous posts, watching these videos has led me to alter my beauty routines a little in the last few weeks, re-organise my drawers and I feel like I'm gradually making progress in getting the house, my appearance and my wardrobe much more how I would like them to be.

Both the blogs and the videos are helping me to keep me in touch with new trends, products, books and ideas by bringing all these things onto my radar and helping me to live my life in a way that helps me get the most possible enjoyment and satisfaction from it.

In addition, I also must mention the lovely bloggers I have connected with since I started this blog 2 years ago. You know who you are.  I really appreciate your comments, support and interaction.  Sometimes, when I stop to think about it, I am really astounded by the wonderful tool technology can be, particularly in the winter when it's cold and dark outside and it takes a lot of effort to drag yourself out of the house.

Of course, it has it's dark side too, but who wants to waste their time on negativity, when there is so much positivity out there to embrace.


  1. Blogging is informative as well as fun, we can follow the progress of our loved bloggers, I often learn new things, we are one big family. I have so many things to do, I am not sure I can find the time for regular viewing of you tube. We were lucky for the planks on our raised bed, having a nice voucher for Christmas. We did try free cycle, but there were none listed.

    1. I've yet to give the wood any serious thought, but I need to start thinking about it soon.

  2. I blog far less these days but still like to see what my Blog friends are up to !
    Still sitting at the kitchen table !

  3. Me too, mostly. It's great to keep in touch
