Be authentic

lifestyle blog


It’s been a hot minute since I last sat down and wrote something so this feels very alien!

wassup?? What’s new with you? There’s a lot of newness around here including this little online space. Which will continue to upgrade over the next few days, weeks, mo…oh who I am kidding this space will FOREVER be upgrading because imma indecisive women.

Creating a blog gives you so much creative freedom yet for some (me) you end up conforming to what you think you should write, always checking those stats and creeping on your fav (successful) bloggers. Before you know it you’ve added a million and one topics and writing about things you simply don’t give a shit about amaright or amaright? 

Things are gonna change around here!

What started on my living room floor 2 years ago as an emotional outlet developed into a creative space. It has given me more opportunities than I ever imagined, I have written pieces for Thrive Global and been a contributor to The Mighty-Site. I have poured my heart out across the net and received incredible support in return, Meeting some incredible, inspirational people along the way. But I felt I was ready for a change.

The joys of the internet are that the best possible asset you have is YOU. No-one else can do you as well as you can. This blog helped me through depression and estranged family issues, it took me out of the darkest time of my life. As with life things move on which I felt was the case with NicoleFrancesca. I was recently nominated for a BAPSaward I would never dreamed could be capable, although I didn’t make it through to the semi-finals.

Over the past few months, I started to feel less inspired by my content and I began writing less so instead of carrying on, I decided to act upon that feeling of change.

So naturally, OhLovelyBlossom just felt right the online space where I’m going to delve into what I love and what I want to share.

If the first couple of months of 2018 has taught me anything it’s Be you, Do you, For you! This is my space and these are things I love. Some days I want to write a heartfelt 2500 worded post other days I want to showcase some photography, I want to ramble about Motherhood and home renovations. Being a Mama will always be at the heart of this blog, sharing my motherhood with cerebral palsy and toddler chaos but without losing who I am.

So lovely grab a coffee (gin) make yourself comfy and enjoy.

    HI Nicole, love the new look and new name and looking forward to reading posts from you. My blog covers lots of different stuff too – and some days is couple of thousand words and some days I have nothing to say 🙂 Life I guess. Good luck with it. Jill x

    A lovely piece, you have to do what’s right for you – but I so know what you mean, it’s so easy to get caught up in what we should do and what everyone else is doing x

    Being ourselves. Most important in all aspects of life. Go you and have fun along the way!

    You are so right! We all need to just be ourselves and if we can’t do that there’s no point. It’s hard though at times don’t get me wrong!! All the best for showcasing YOU.

    Very wise words…. Be you, Do you, For you! I’m keeping those in mind. Great piece, it’s so easy to get caught up in what other people want and think.
