Anyway, I thought that it would be fun to start a new feature, looking back at what I’ve been up to over the past seven days, in terms of writing and blogging etc. That way, if you’ve missed anything, well you can catch up – how awesome is that?
WRITING. Monday, on Barefoot Girl Writes, was all about Camp NaNoWriMo, and how I was getting on, as I reached Day 8 and 5,859 words towards my 15,000 word target, which left me feeling incredibly positive about my mini adventure.
Catch up on my Day 8 update from Camp NaNoWriMo, right here. And the next update will be with you tomorrow!
BEAUTY. Over on the original Barefoot Girl Beauty Blog, I reviewed Yves Saint Laurent’s The Black Eyeliner, a liquid eyeliner that I was hoping would be a great alternative to the cheaper Rimmel Glam’Eyes liquid liner. How did the YSL liner fare?
WRITING. Tuesday was Word of the Week day, with this weeks addition being: Myth.
RE-BRANDING. Tuesday was also the day when I officially wrote the final blog post over on my original freelance writing blog; Kat Musselwhite Writer, which seemed a little bit sad. However, this blog was designed to take it over, so it’s not all sad 🙂
RE-BRANDING. After writing my final blog post as Kat Musselwhite (well, I’m still Kat Musselwhite, but that’s no long my professional “brand”), I decided to have a play around with the Barefoot Girl website.
First of all, I added a sub-domain for this very blog, so that I could run the blog a little independently of the website, but it is still connected to it, literally, so the domain is just http://www.abarefootgirlwrites.com/blog, but it’s actually separate. If that makes sense!
By splitting the website and blog, I allowed the main page to be dedicated to my freelance writing as a whole, with the blog a part of it. I wanted to do this, because I felt like the blog was taking over, a little bit too much, from what I actually do.
I also felt that the original Barefoot Girl Writes website was a little bit complicated, so splitting the website in two (hypothetically) allowed me to simplify everything, and I’m very happy with the results.
WRITING. In the meantime, this weeks Confessions of a Bookaholic looked at writing that scares you, and whether it’s possible to write about what you know.
BEAUTY. On Barefoot Girl, I shared my latest Bargain Hunting spoil, which amazingly didn’t come from a Charity Shop. Instead, this eye shadow (which only cost £3) came from T.K. Maxx – a shop that I love to hate – and was a colour that baffled me a little. Then again, I’m pretty easy to baffle!
FILM. Wednesday was definitely a very busy day, but I also managed to squeeze in a quick review (that wasn’t really that “quick”) of Anne Hathaway’s One Day.
WRITING. Thursday came was a writing inspiration from my favourite children’s book Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. I chose this book because I felt that the time had finally come to read the series all over again, and it seemed fitting!
BEAUTY. I re-visited a topic that I’ve covered a number of times on Barefoot Girl, which was the question of What is Beauty? I love this question, because everyone has a very different outlook on it. I also like to re-visit it every-so-often just to see how much my own opinions have – or haven’t – changed.
After a busy week of writing, I ended with a easy-to-follow guide to moving images from your phone, into your PC (or laptop) without the need for cables. This is something that I find myself needing a lot, since my cables have a habit of going AWOL on a regular basis.
