A Great Start to 2022

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all! I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas holiday and a great start to the new year. I had a relaxing break filled with plenty of rest, laughter, and gifts. We saw so many new movies on Netflix and Amazon TV. You can find out some of the new shows we have been watching these past few weeks here and here.

It is so exciting to start another year. I have been looking forward to 2022. The last year felt like it carried on for way too long, especially towards the end of the year. It sort of felt like 2021 would never end so I am glad we are now in the new year at last. This year 2022 has started off nicely already and I am really looking forward to all the year brings.

I have a lot planned for this year and I can’t wait to get started. Uni is still ongoing and I am really getting into the realms of psychology. It is such an interesting degree for me; I am looking forward to where it takes me.

There will be loads of posts on Fashion and Style Police this year, just like the previous nine years. So expect more product reviews, fashion and beauty posts, lifestyle and freelancing posts, and even new outfit posts. I will also be exploring starting off new categories on here and on YouTube, so keep reading and watching.

You can also find me on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest. I plan to be sharing more posts on my social media pages going forward.

How was your Christmas break? Do you have new year’s resolutions set already? Do sound off in the comments section. Thanks for stopping by. Have a lovely rest of the day wherever you are. Stay safe.

Amazing Series I am watching this month

It took me a minute to decide on the title for this blog post. I initially thought of using “What I am watching on TV this month” but I am not really watching the TV. I do Amazon Prime, Netflix, and YouTube, and I have recently started watching a very interesting series on an App, but regular TV is not something I watch.

Moving on, here are some cool series I am watching this month:

The Chosen

I am currently watching The Chosen series on The Chosen App. It is an amazing series all about the life of Jesus Christ and his teachings. The series is completely free to watch once you download the App.

You can also watch the series on YouTube if you don’t mind the ads. There are two seasons; we are still watching the first season and I am already so into it.

The Wheel of Time

This is another amazing series I just finished watching some days ago. It is based on the book series by Robert Jordan and it is all about five young men and women with magical powers that can defeat a ‘dark one’ and save the world.

If you are into fantasy, adventure, drama, and action, you would love The Wheel of Time. The full first season is available to watch on Amazon Prime.

The Handmaid’s Tale

This is another Amazon Prime series I have recently finished. We binged watch all four seasons within a few weeks because they were that good.

The Handmaid’s Tale is all about June, a fertile woman in Gilead, living (against her will) with a commander and his wife as a concubine, in a country suffering from infertility due to sexually transmitted diseases and environmental pollution. It is definitely worth watching if you are into stories like this.

Blogging Tip: Take time off

Hey below bloggers! I have not written a blogging tip post in a bit. A lot of juggling has been going on behind the scenes for me, but I am working on a new blogging routine and it looks like I am settling into a new way of running Fashion and Style Police. So do expect regular blog posts from now on. The plan is to go back to blogging more often and so far my new blogging schedule is working really well.

This brings me to the theme of today’s post. I have been blogging for almost 9 years now, and it has been a learning journey all the way. I have gone from blogging a few times a week, to blogging everyday and back again. The learning experience is forever ongoing. Blogging is not something to learn and you stop learning. The big wide web keeps changing and so does your blog, which means forever twerking, learning and relearning things to keep your blog active.

Blogging Tip: Take time off

One thing I have had to learn this past year is that it is ok to take time off. Like most things in life, taking time off is important to keep your ideas fresh and to stay healthy mentally and physically. Being self employed and relying heavily on my blog income made me struggle with taking time off. I must confess, I used to panic whenever I took a couple of days off, but I am pleased to say that is no longer the case.

Since the start of the pandemic, I take as many days off as required and I feel no panic or guilt. The irony of it all is that my views have increased massively even though I now blog less. The panic and fear were just the ego part of me trying to control everything which usually leads to less productivity.

Days off are important for any job especially when you are self employed and running your own business. You are your blog and you cannot afford to break down, and this is why taking time off is important.

The only blogging tip I have for you is to take a break every now and again, so you can come back ready buzzing with fresh ideas that create amazing blog posts. Also, remember to feel no guilt or fear when you do this. Your blog will be fine, your views will rise and your blog readers will understand. You are more than your blog. Stay safe.
