Product Review – Sweetness & Light Soya Candles

Once you step into my home, you would spot my love for candles. I have candles in every room. There is something I love about candles. Apart from the amazing fragrance that lingers long after the candles have been put out, there is just this thing about them that relaxes me; puts me in a good mood. So you can imagine how excited I was to try out these Sweetness & Light Soya Candles.

The candles here are Sweetness & Light Coconut Cream and Summer Breeze. I have been burning these for a couple of days now, and I love them. I am really impressed with the quality and the packaging of the candles. They look amazing, not like the regular candles we see around. They stand out even more with the unique personalisation. I have never had a candle with my name on it. Have you had one before?

I love them both but I prefer the Coconut Cream Candle. It reminds me of the beach holiday we had at Dubai some weeks ago. It takes me right back to the hot sunny days at the beach. Sweet memories.

Holidaying in Dubai

I am back from our Middle East mini tour. We visited Dubai and Oman, and we had an amazing time. I am still recovering from the excitement, trying to get back into the swing of things. I came back to a mountain of work, hundreds of emails, and the works, and I still have a suitcase to unpack (my least favourite job in the world), but I have decided to do that some other time. Right now, I need to blog!

I will be telling you more about our visit to Muscat, Oman, in my next travel lifestyle post, but for now, it is all about the beautiful cosmopolitan city of Dubai. This is my third time visiting the amazing country, and I am so in love with it. There is always something to do, something new to look forward to. Dubai is full of excitement and screams luxury.

Although, the weather was boiling hot at over 40 degrees while we were holidaying, we still managed to have a good time, with plenty of water, suncream and sunhats! It is a summer holiday to remember forever!

We spent most of our days exploring the Jumeirah Beach Resort. We stayed over at DoubleTree Hilton Jumeriah Beach, and it came with a private beach, which we visited almost everyday.

The kids had a blast splashing in the amazing cool kids swimming pool and they also made the most of the beach with their sand castle toys. It was a perfect summer vacation for the family; a holiday I would never forget.

I have been busy sharing snaps from Holiday on my social media platforms, so free feel to play catch on them, and let me know what you think.

It was a relaxing break, that was urgently needed. And now I feel ready to take on the rest of the year. I am looking forward to my next Dubai trip. Hopefully, I won’t have to wait too long.

How to Set Up a Blog

Starting my blog – Fashion and Style Police, was one of the best decisions I have ever made. It all started with wanting to share my ideas and thoughts with people. I saw it as a medium through which I could express myself. Little did I know that a profitable business would be born from it too.

Fast forward to where I am right now, blogging has seriously helped elevate my life as a freelancer. It has given me the opportunity to not only be able to help a lot of people but it has also helped me provide for my family and be there for them whenever they need me.

Just like me there has been a great increase in the number of people who want to also start a blog. When I started my blog, it involved a lot of trial and error. So I thought I’d create this simple guide to help you set up your own blog.

 

Step #1 Get a hosting plan and domain name

This is the most important set when you want to set up your blog. A hosting panel will is like a space where your blog will be kept. All the information from your blog will be held by the hosting company so as to give you and your readers access to your blog.

A domain name is the name of your blog. It forms the URL of your blog. For example, when you want to come to my blog, Fashion and Style Police, you have to type in “www.fashionandstylepolice.com”. That link is the domain name of my blog. So, whenever anyone want to come to your blog, they will have to type in the domain name. Once they type in the domain name, the hosting company grants them access to your blog.

Getting a domain name and hosting requires that you pay a monthly or yearly fee. That’s not much of a problem as domain names and hosting come at really low and affordable prices.

 

Step #2 Go for WordPress

Once you have your domain name and hosting sorted out, you need to install the blog platform that will actually enable you to start blogging. Although there are a lot of blogging platforms out there, I recommend you use WordPress. WordPress is easy to use and most hosting services have the one-click-install-Wordpress option.

 

Step #3 Install and customize a theme

The next thing is to select a theme for your blog. The theme is what gives your blog an appealing look. Themes are easily customizable. You can change the colour, rearrange the elements on your blog and completely tweak the design of your blog. I got my theme for £99 about 2 years ago, and it is one of the best £99 I have ever spent!

Step #4 Install plugins

To get your blog to do more you can install plugins. Plugins help you to add some really cool functionalities to your blog like allow you to track the number of people who come to view your blog through Google analytics.

Plugins like Yoast SEO help you make sure that your blog is Search Engine Optimization (SEO) friendly. Plugins like Akismet make sure that you don’t get spam or bots writing comments and make sure that you only get real humans commenting.

 

Step #5 Add content

This is the best part. Now that you’ve got your blog up the next thing is to add content. You can now start creating the content you would like to share with your audience. Feel free to add images and even videos to help enhance your content.

 

I hope someone out there finds this How to set up a blog post very useful. Feel free to add any tips that may have helped you in your blogging journey in the comments section below. You can also ask me any blogging question. I promise to respond or find you the answer. You can also read more blogging tips in my ebook, available on Amazon.

Happy blogging.
