So today I wanted to write a little post which is personal to me in lots of ways, mainly because it’s been such a huge problem to me for a long time. This post is going to be about my Braces and kind of a FAQ at the same time. I just thought I’d shine a little light on why I wanted them, how I went about it and some progress updates on the blog and YouTube too!
I had braces a while back when I was 18, they were free on the NHS as I was pregnant and it was something I’d always wanted. I’ve had problems with the shape of my teeth as long as I can remember, I have been bullied about it and it’s always been a massive insecurity of mine. After I had the brace taken off I was silly and I didn’t wear my retainer, now I know how bad this was and my teeth moved back to being almost as bad as before. I am still really annoyed at myself for this, but there is nothing I can do to change it now. Lesson well and truly learnt.
You may have seen my previous post about the North West Bloggers event in Liverpool on Sunday. We had a fabulous time and I even did a little vlog about the event which you can view here.
Here is my little OOTD from the event, I went for quite a casual look today as I didn’t want to look too overdressed.

So yesterday me and some of my lovely blogger friends, headed into liverpool to go to an long awaited event in Liverpool. We had all been looking forward to this for some time, I was really excited and couldn’t wait to meet some more lovely bloggers that I’ve been talking to for so long.
I made my way into Manchester on the tram and then went to Picadilly station and rushed to get my train (which I just made in time) to get to Liverpool Lime St. I met the gorgeous Rachael on the train at Oxford Road Station, and then we had a nice chat on the way about weddings and things. Once we got there we met a few other bloggers in the station and then headed to find the venue. I had no idea where I was but we found our way pretty easily.
When we got there we were greeted by the lovely host Hannah Rosalie, to say this was her first event it really was brilliant! All the hard work put into this and it was so worth it, we all had a great time. As well as the bonus of coming home well and truly spoilt, with some lovely goodies.
We then sat down to have a chat and after a few minutes we were told we could go through to another room and chat to some of the brands, there were some gorgeous stalls such as Lush, St Moritz, TearDrop Jewellery, Fashion Zoo and even a fun photo booth! It was great to pop around and chat to some of the lovely brands and I even got my hair re done by a lovely Hair stylist, the wind had ruined my hair on the journey so this was perfect!
Here is a lovely picture of all the lovely girlies I was lucky enough to meet up with today!
Hello there beautiful people! I want to thank you all for your amazing support this week, I have been making the transition from Blogger to WordPress. I am still working on my blog as we speak but I hope that you all like my new layout, I’d appreciate any feedback as I want to make it as readable as possible for all of you.
I am really loving WordPress so far and I am finding it a lot better for me personally, as I said I am still working on it so bear with me. I will still be blogging and doing YouTube videos regularly so I really hope that you will enjoy those too! Today I thought I’d do a bit of an update and let you know what I’ve been up to this week. I will be doing a post soon about how to move over to WordPress if that is the move you are looking for, as I know some people have mentioned it in the past.
So this week has been my prayer and fasting week at church, its been a hard week I’m not going to lie but in this week I have also been amazingly blessed. I have been at church as much as I could this week whilst also praying at home or at work when I couldn’t make it. I wasn’t completely sure what to expect this week and I was incredibly nervous about it to be honest, but I’m so glad I did it. I chose to fast from some meals whilst praying, but not all meals. Whilst also not using the internet as much, which is why I had a few guest posts last week. I didn’t want to mention it straight away as I wasn’t sure how it was going to pan out, but let me tell you it really has been a brilliant week. I have prayed about many different things this week, mainly my family and friends and also different situations within my life and at church too.
Also this week I have been updating my blog and also having a break from blogging as much because I wanted to get my inspiration back. After moving from blogger I had a mini breakdown because I was worried I didn’t like WordPress as much but I have absolutely changed my mind. It is really growing on me and there is so much more that you can do with it, so I’m hoping that its the right move.
My blog has grown so much this last few months and I’m trying to keep everyone happy and making sure I maintain readers, as I want you all to enjoy reading my blog and I also want to enjoy writing it too. Sometimes its really hard to get the inspiration to blog and I’m hoping this little break will get me back on track. I thank you all for your amazing support and I appreciate every single one of my readers, you are the backbone of my little blog. So thank you so much.
I know this isn’t my usual sunday post but I just had so much to say so this is kind of like my journal at the moment. I feel like I’m just writing down my weekly thoughts, so I’m sorry if I’m rambling. I promise that from now on I will be a lot more consistent with my posts and I am looking forward to this coming year, to see what it holds for The Francesca Diaries.
I hope you have all had a brilliant week!
What have you been up to?
I’d love to hear about it!
Hello lovelies, I hope you enjoy the two lovely guest poster’s that I had on my blog the last couple of days, I hope you check them out! Today I want to share my Pastel Love, I love Spring its one of my all time favourites, I love the colours and this year one of my fave trends is coming, Pastels! I absolutely love these colours and I cannot wait to go shopping and to put together some lovely outfits for you all! Exciting!It may be time for a clear out also, to make room and some money for the new things coming into the wardrobe. I thought I’d share some of my favourite pieces from the high street. So here are my pastel loves! You can view more details about these items here on my Polyvore account!
Today I filmed a new video over on my YouTube channel, but I also wanted to do a post in order to accompany it, so that you could get a better idea of the products I mentioned. So here they are, all 14 of the products I eventually ‘narrowed’ it down too. I just had too many favourites this month and also some from January too so this is kind of a mix of both!
