I’ve decided to combine my usual Life Update posts and my monthly ICYMI to create a more substantial blog post. Let me know what you think. We’re officially one third of the way through 2017, by the way!

This month I started properly dieting. I even started doing Slimming World from home. I’ve lost 8lbs in total so far (24th April today!) and I want to lose another 6lbs by the time I go on holiday. I might make it… I might not. I did have a week where I gained 3lbs whilst still eating really well, so that was confusing!

I gained about 70 subscribers (so far) this month, so not as many as previous months. I have been getting some good view counts though! I think part of the problem is that I haven’t been promoting as much as usual (same with my blog posts, actually) as I’ve found myself really busy! I’ve gained about 20 blog followers too, so hello if you’re new!

You may have noticed – I hope you have, anyway – but I became hollifeblog.com this month! So exciting; I feel professional and like I’m blogging ‘properly’ now. It also makes my blog easier to find, as people tend to forget the ‘.wordpress’ bit of a URL.

I finally got my beauty room sorted! I’ll be doing a room tour soon on my youtube channel so make sure you’re subscribed if you want to see that. I’ll also be doing a post on here showing what I can!

  1. Congrats on the weight loss! I did Slimming World for a while but I didn’t like my local group. I’m calorie counting now. If you need a weight loss buddy then feel free to contact me. I need all the help I can get!
