Apart from being deliriously happy it’s only one more sleep til another weekend descends upon us, I’m also a bit of a cheery chappy to introduce the ever so smiley Seri from Seri’s Blog joining me on the virtual sofa today! *woo hoo* Ladies, you’re most definitely in for a treat with this talented young gal as her blog is a little treasure trove of lifestyle, beauty, food, reviews… pretty much everything fun & fabulous!
Not only is she a superb blogger, she’s also the co-founder of A Dollar Campaign (I hope you don’t mind me linking this Seri!!!) which is a superb cause that’s dedicated to finding a cure to pediatric cancer. Being a mama, this is an issue that’s most definitely fiercely close to my own heart… to see the great efforts of others (like Seri) being put into fighting such a worthy cause for children suffering from such a heart breaking illness is just incredibly moving. Keep up the amazing work Seri – I’m pretty sure the whole WordPress family is in major support of your hard efforts!
So please do take the time this morning to settle down with your cuppa and get to know this fabulous young lady a whole lot better, she’s such an inspiration and I’ve no doubt you’ll adore her & her blog every bit as much as I do!!
(Seri & her twin sis!)
In only 5 words describe what readers can expect from your blog:
Beauty, health, creative ideas, tip/tricks, entertainment. (A little bit of everything!)
What inspired you to start blogging?
This question involves a bit of a back story. And it starts with the hit TV show the Bachelor! I was watching Sean Lowe’s season and I decided to follow him on Instagram. From his Instagram, I came across his sister’s account. She had a blog called Mix and Match Mama. I really loved her blog and started reading it every day. From her blog, I came across many others that I fell in love with. Before that, I hardly even knew about the blogging world!
About a year later, I decided to launch my own blog! I wanted to create a place where you could find everything you need in one place. That’s why I have such a broad range of topics on my blog.
Tell us about your blog name… what made you decide on it?
Well at first I wanted to call it “The Everything Blog” but that was taken! So I decided to use my name instead. Seri’s blog was born! I wish I had a more interesting story!
Do you ever suffer from Blogger’s Block & if so how do you overcome it?
I usually don’t, and here’s why– Whenever I have an idea, I ALWAYS write it down right away. I also keep a separate calendar just for my blogging schedule. I have all my posts scheduled for weeks in advance. So in case I do have blogger’s block, it’s okay because I have time tofigure it out!
What’s your favourite post to date?
I love the About Me posts that I post every Wednesday. But my very favorite post is when I shared my homemade gift ideas. I love this post because I love getting creative while making things for the people I love!
Describe your everyday clothes style:
I describe my style as classy/chill. I usually wear a few items that are very laid back, but I also wear an item that is very chic and classy. An example of an outfit would be a classy shirt/jacket, and then leggings and uggs.
What are your current top 3 beauty items?

And here are a few that I wrote-

And here is one that I ALWAYS say to people when they come to me with ideas- “Don’t just say it! DO it!!”
What top tips would you give to someone who is thinking of starting their own blog?
