you may call me the queen of blogging. yes, yes I know I'm so on top of it! blogging so regularly like I do. no, no please stop with all the compliments, please! alternate start to the blog post: I suck.
ok, so what I've come to realise is that I'm not very good at keeping up with blogging on top of other social media. I won't make any promises but I'm going to try and find some kind of routine or schedule to work by so I can get on top of this bloggin jazz! how do you guys do it? does anyone else struggle with consistent blogging or finding the time to sit down to create a blog post? I find that by the time I've done a work day, which includes a lot of social media time for both me and on the behalf of others (did I tell you guys I'm now a social media manager as well as a photographer?! yeah roooy), I have no time or energy or inspiration for blogging! but I know so many people who blog consistently and beautifully and what seems like, effortlessly. if you are one of those people, then give me your wisdom! 

in other news, I've been in france for the past month! I've been staying in strasbourg for most of that time, with a few trips to germany and paris and a bunch of smaller villages in the area. I can't wait to share all about it, but let's be honest, I haven't even posted my israel trip pictures yet (insert the laughing till crying emojis). so first things first, amiright? meanwhile, here are a few snaps from my most recent travels! also, if you want to see what I'm up to day by day (coz you know you wanna see that), follow along on instagram (@missjessy12) and if haven't caught up on the mind the gap series then make sure you go have a nosey (yup, petie and I are still makin videos every monday coz we is rockstaaaaars obvs) at the channel!

in the meantime, you peeps keep safe + be awesome. I'll be back.

love you all!

  1. I can't blame you for not keeping up with blogging; because you keep such a beautiful Instagram and make videos every two weeks! BUT - I would love to see more of your posts (because you're hilarious + your photography is gorgeous) and maybe an idea to make them more frequent is setting a day to write a post? I normally make myself post on Saturdays or Sundays, because I have more time on my hands then.

    LOVE the pictures. (You pasted the Eiffel Tower picture twice. Because it's epic. :-P)

    1. awwww thanks so much love! yeah, I'm thinking about setting a day and then also taking some time to prepare a bunch of blog posts at once time! hahaha, lol thanks for letting me know about the eiffel tower. hehehe all fixed that now ;)

  2. Love these photos! The eiffel tower is just spectacular. <3 I've missed your posts!

    Yes I totally get you, I've been swamped with uni work and exams and I'm like.. where did the time go?
    Loving MTG too!!

  7. Ah, I love these pictures, Jess! I'm actually studying the country of France right now (just the country in general - it's geography, culture, natural resources etc) so your Instagram feed and this post is especially splendid. :D

    I would really enjoy it if you posted more, yes! But you have every excuse about being busy, girl. No need to pressure yourself. ;)
