Finding Our Place in the Blogosphere - Invisible Illness // Ellen's in Carcassonne France

I am totally struggling to find my place in the blogging world at the moment.

I know what I like to talk about and I know what my viewers like to watch. However, blogging has never come so naturally to me.

Wearing no makeup in a blog post??! // Ellen’s in Just L Jewellery //

Is the blogging community still something I want to be part of? // Ellen’s in Vernet-Les-Baines South of France

I’m writing this as I sit in the front room of where I’m staying in the South of France, having on of those moments where I’m feeling blissfully happy and like a very lucky girl. These pictures are basically completely irrelevant to what I want to write about but there pretty so they can stay.
