Welcome to Soph Hearts: Giveaway and Update

Hi and welcome to Soph Hearts, my new and improved site! It’s coming up to a year since I began my journey as a blogger and I’ve loved every second (okay, well almost). Now that I’ve established my online space a little better and know that blogging is something I really enjoy, it was definitely time to renovate. I thought that I’d share a short but sweet update on life and the blog and also invite you to enter a little giveaway! Sophie Hearts (.net) has re-branded to Soph Hearts (.com) and I’ve managed to design a layout that I truly love. I hope that you’ll find the new site super user-friendly and enjoy navigating through it.

Positivity

Recently I’ve been working on myself; I’ve had a long think about my lifestyle and both short and long-term goals. Fundamentally, I’ve always had a very common goal which is the happiness of myself and those closest to me. I’ve been changing up my lifestyle habits (I’ve recently covered this briefly here) and making a conscious effort to choose happiness and positivity. Although I appreciate that there are times when we can’t control our moods, I’ve found ways of manipulating my mindset. Where I once would have seen only negative, I now focus on finding positives. The ‘Law of Attraction’ is a recent discovery and although I’m a rather sceptical person and aren’t entirely confident in all of its teachings, I do think that it makes some good points. Amongst them is the necessity of gratitude and focusing on things you do want rather than the things you don’t.

Soph Hearts

These changes although recent, have left me feeling more confident and hopeful that I can continue to make positive improvements. They’ve had a knock on effect to my attitudes and the things I do. With regards to the blog, I want to be more creative with imagery and the topics I cover. Motivation to create a greater amount of content comes easily and I’m striving to improve in many areas. Although it’s taken a little experimenting to find out which blog posts are received better than others, I’m ready to create more content that I love and hope that you will too! My goal is both relatable and enjoyable content that you actually want to read so my Twitter and Instagram messages are always open to new ideas, as are my comments!

    Ah congrats on a year of blogging, your new site looks gorgeous, I can’t wait for more content! I’ve also been trying to focus on my own happiness this year and surrounding myself with positivity. I think focusing on things you do want rather than the things you don’t is an important one – learning to say no to things I don’t want to do instead of reluctantly saying yes has worked wonders. This giveaway is incredible! x

    I remember over on twitter when you mentioned you renovated your blog and now had a .com at the end instead of a .net! I actually thought you’ve been blogging for more than a year haha – congratulations on one year and on your rebrand! Also, I definitely relate to making a more conscious effort to think more positively – although sometimes there’s the negative thoughts, the positive thoughts really make me a much happier person! 🙂 Love the photo of you tossing up the flowers!
