UK Blog Awards 2015 – Please vote

Hi lovely readers (promise I’m not sucking up)…for those of you that know me and those of you that follow HollyGoesLightly, you’ll know that this blog has become a very important part of my life!

I love blogging. I find it cathartic. I feel like I’m learning a new skill. I like to share. I like to write. I like to remember. I like to document. I love to photograph. 

All of these things have meant that this is my 140th blog-post (still amateur in the blogging-world) and that I’ve been writing this blog for over 18 months now.

As with everything in life, there’s the opportunity to be recognised and the UK Blog Awards do just that. It’s so nice to have an organising body that looks solely at the work,  achievements and creativity that bloggers bring to the online world. To even be considered and in with a chance of being short-listed is an honour! And I have the chance of being short-listed in the Lifestyle Blog category (woohoo!).

So this is where I ask that if you like my blog, enjoy reading it, like my photos or anything to do with HollyGoesLightly and what it represents, then please take a few moments to vote for me by clicking the image below!

Cheers to that!

Booking a Personal Trainer

If you follow this blog, you’ll be aware of my constant battle with weight and getting fit. I’m back on the Slimming World food optimising plan and I’m ready to get back on track with my fitness too.

When I was recently on holiday, enjoying the all-inclusive buffet and limitless cocktails, I was making plans to get fit…honestly! So much so, that I spent a few hours, lazing around by the pool, looking for a Personal Trainer in Manchester, who would be able to help me achieve my personal goals. And I was lucky enough that the wonderful Jade Mottley saw my plight on Twitter and tweeted back!Continue reading
