Thoughts: Adding more structure to the blog

Waffle-150x142Happy weekend all! This is really me trying to verbalise an idea, so bare with me, and at the end I’d love to hear your thoughts, as without you, my dear readers, there’d be no point in me being here. Anyway, inspired by Karen from Lovely Girlie Bits saying she needed to plan some posts, I got thinking about how I could add more structure to the blog by planning out and structuring my posts more. That’s why I was thinking of something along the lines of the following:

  • Manicure Monday: An excuse to work through the 95 and counting bottles of nail polish I own, showcasing 1 a week.
  • Tried Tuesday: I’m pretty sure we have drawerfuls of products we’ve half forgotten about. That’s why on Tuesdays I want to pull something out, try it, and hopefully rediscover a love for it.
  • Waffle Wednesday: A chance for me to rant on about something. A news piece, something I’ve seen, or any random thing that’s caught my eye.
  • Tested Thursday: A bit more serious than Tried Tuesday. On Thursdays I’d see if a product actually lives up to its claims. I’d put it to the test.
  • Face Friday: A reason to appear on my own blog more often, and hopefully I’ll be able to get 1 face a week that I’d actually be happy to display. Failing that you’d end up with a picture of me with a brown bag on my head.
  • Something Else Saturday: Not quite waffling about anything, this is most likely going to be about a tv show, film, book, piece of music, piece of cake, or something else that I want to showcase.
  • Day Off Sunday: Nothing for you today. What do you think I am? A blog-posting robot? I need a day off once a week, okay!

I’ll also be doing additional posts on things that I feel can’t wait for the right day, or on Blog Challenges such as the Best of Beauty.

Now, as I said, this is more my thoughts at the moment, but I’d love to hear what you have to say. What do you think of the idea? Are there any particular topics you’d change? Please do speak up and let me know in the comments.


No brain cells were irreparably damaged from thinking up this post, but it was a close call

UPDATE: Judging by the positive comments, I’ll trial my idea for a couple of weeks and see if it works out for me. Watch this space.

Playlist: 23 March

Musical NoteIt’s been so long since I’ve posted a playlist. For those of you who are new to my playlists, let me explain a little. I have quite a love of music, and thanks to being a former internet radio DJ, I have a bit of a collection. For my playlists I hit shuffle and let my music player spit out 5 songs, which I then share with you. Your duty by reading this is to tell me what you think of my musical tastes and hopefully recommend something else for me to listen to. Keep in mind that even though I missed most of it, I am an 80’s girl. So, after the jump you will find my (possibly dodgy) musical taste.

Playlist – 27 June

music noteOkay, before i get on with the playlist, first, an apology. I know I have been a bit quiet on the blog front for the past couple of weeks. I really should be writing something every day, or every couple of days, but I couldn’t inspire myself to do it. I am back now, and will be updating the blog regularly. I promise!

Playlist – 07 June

music noteWow my playlist can get mixed up at times. I’m not sure what to make of this five. It is one of the most eclectic mixes I have seen in a long time. As usual, links to Youtube are provided where I can find suitable links.

Playlist – 03 June

music noteI am quite a music fan, but I have a somewhat eclectic taste in music. Currently I have a library of over 18,000 tracks on the computer. I plan on regularly taking 5 random tracks that my player spits out, and sharing them with you, with Youtube links to them if I can find them.

So, my playlist 5 for 03 June are:
