5 Guilty Pleasures

This is a sort of 'expose myself' blog post, to destroy the image you have of me, the truth: my guilty pleasures.

1. Crisps
If you have met me, you probably know that I love crisps more than life, honestly. All crisps, any flavours (just about). I could literally eat crisps all day, every day. Chocolate or crisps? Crisps. Sweets or crisps? Crisps. Snack? Crisps.

2. Celebrity gossip
I love celebrity gossip. I find myself reading any articles that I see on my twitter timeline, even if I know they're probably fake. It doesnt matter if I like the celebrity or not, if it is a bit of juicy gossip, I am probably reading it... Or have read it. I sometimes even have a googling session where I will type in someones name and just read related articles to the search.

3. Checking my blog stats
Checking my blog stats is something I am absolutely obsessed with. There is nothing more great than reaching a milestone or a goal that you have set yourself after it slowly creeping with regards to blog views, country reach ect!

4.  Watching Demi Lovato laughing compilations on YouTube
I go on YouTube and watch Demi Lovato laughing compilations as much as possible. There is something so infectious about her smile and her laugh and I just cannot help but feel happy when I watch them.

5. Stalking myself on twitter
I stalk myself on twitter at least once a day. I think I am a twitter perfectionist. If something doesnt look right next to something else, or there is a tweet with just 1 like, I will delete it. I delete all the replies to other peoples tweets because I think it just looks so messy.

I Interviewed Another Blogger!

I thought it would be awesome to interview another blogger, so I asked one of my personal favourite bloggers if she would be up for answering a few questions and she agreed!



Welcome to my blog Becca! I hope you are feeling good and are well. Could you start off by introducing yourself and your blog?
Thank you! I'm Becca from Becca Blogs It Out. I live in Kent, UK, with my husband and 2 year old twins, Jack and Alice.


When did you start blogging? What inspired you to want to start a blog?

I launched my blog on 6th July, so I've only been blogging for 2 months. I started out wanting to share my experiences of infertility and mental health. I feel very strongly about raising mental health awareness and a blog seemed like a good place to start!


What is your proudest achievement to date?

My twins! I'm so lucky to have them and they make me proud every day. Blog-wise, I'm proud of how quickly I've managed to grow in terms of traffic and therefore, how many people are reading my posts.


How do you want to improve yourself in the next year?

I need to work on finding a balance! I've been working so hard on my blog and it's exhausting. Self care is really important and I haven't been doing enough of that lately. I need to get more sleep and eat more healthily!


Who has impacted you most in blogging and how?

There are some really amazing bloggers that have been so wonderful. The whole Twitter community has been amazing. Emma from sunshineandrain.info has become a very good friend as we've been learning together. Ruth (ruthinvolt.com) is so inspiring. Jay (the Bearded Igor) is really supportive. There are too many to mention!


Where would you like to be in blogging five years from now?

I would like to still be raising mental health awareness and blogging about being a twin mum. I'd like to be earning a decent income by then, but we'll see?


What was the most challenging moment in your blogging journey so far?

I find it really hard to write posts about my own mental health. I do it anyway, because I think it's important not to hide how I'm feeling, so that other people who are struggling know that they're not alone. I wrote an open letter to all the friends I've let down because of my mental health, and publishing that - knowing that those friends would read it - was really hard.


What do you find the most frustrating aspect of blogging?

Finding time to fit it all in! I'm a stay at home mum, but the twins keep me busy during the day, so I work on my blog when they go to bed. My to do list just seems to get longer and longer.


I absolutely love everything that you stand for. You are an incredible mental health advocate and I can only thank you for that. What made you so aware of mental health issues?

Thank you so much! That's so sweet of you to say. I have struggled with my own depression and anxiety for most of my adult life, so it's a subject that's very close to my heart. My husband is also a mental health Occupational Therapist, so it's a topic that is talked about a lot in our house.


What advice would you give someone who is suffering in silence with their mental health?

Please don't. Don't try to do this on your own. Everybody needs help sometimes and there's no shame in asking for it. Talk to a friend, a loved one, your GP... whoever you feel you can trust. My inbox is always open to anyone who wants to talk. Don't suffer in silence - they don't give out medals for that.


What is your favourite post to date and why?

This is such a hard question. Please Don't Tell Me To Calm Down was really therapeutic to write, and I received so many lovely messages after I posted To All The Friends I've Let Down. So probably one of those.


I am proud of you for everything you have achieved and for everything you are achieving. We all appreciate your content. Do you have anything to say to your younger self?

Yes! If I could speak to my younger self, I'd tell her that everything will work out eventually. And to start blogging sooner!


Do you have any specific goals for the rest of this year?

I want to stay on top of my own mental health, keep posting good mental health related content and continue growing my blog so that more people read it. I also want to work on the parenting side of my blog, as this is the part I would eventually like to earn money from. And I have plans to blog more about blogging too?


Thank you for answering! Where can my viewers find you? Links please!

Thank you so much for featuring me on your blog. It really made my day to be asked! Your readers can find my blog at www.beccablogsitout.com and my social media links are below
