All About You Linkup is 1 year old!

Einstein quote

I’m back!  I’ve been away for a couple of weeks (what do you mean you hadn’t even noticed??), and now jet-lagged, sun soaked, and recharged from plugging back into the homeland, after a visit home to Trinidad and Tobago, plus a good digital detox (bar the odd bit of Instagram!) I’m back, and raring to go!

What do you think of this quote?  I firmly believe that there is strength in numbers, especially with women – when we get together our collective energies are incredibly powerful, however we all know that there’s a time when you need to stand out from the crowd and strike your own path.  It doesn’t mean that we don’t need our friends (boy do we need them!), but my take on it is just that you can’t let the crowd direct you.

Guess what, it’s been a whole year since this linky began, so I want to celebrate by running a competition to say an enormous thank you to everyone for making the All About You Linkup such a great place to discover a wide variety of blogs, from style, to opinion, to recipes and projects – just by sharing YOU!

Grab the badge below and join in the link up!

I was totally thrilled to be included in the Tots100 Fresh Five last week for blogs to check out for a healthy 2015, and I’m linking up my 8-minute yoga flow to this linkup – because, surely we can justify grabbing 8 minutes for ourselves?

Speaking of taking time out, how are those new year’s resolutions going??  I made a list this year of 10 things I won’t be doing – do link yours up if you have any!

Onto you and the linkup – the kids are cute, but this linky is all about YOU!  Posts are regularly added to the popular All About You Pinterest board.  If you’d like to pin to the group board you just need to follow  yours truly on Pinterest, and leave your Pinterest handle in the comments below and I can invite you to the board.

Guest Hosting

We’ve had some wonderful guest hosts last year, and have a few lined up for this year.   If you’d like to join in , do get in touch!

Happy Birthday Competition!

I am so thrilled that this lovely linky has been running for a whole year now!  I love the variety of blog posts that it attracts, the different topics, and more than anything else, I love that hopefully you are encouraged to take some time that’s All About YOU!

Thank you so very much to every single person who has linked up and joined in over the last year – as a thankyou, I am running a competition each week for the next 4 weeks.  There are shopping vouchers, beauty pampering treats, fashion items all up for grabs!  Just follow the prompts in Rafflecopter to enter!

  4. Welcome back darling, we missed you! I love this quote and it reflects the balance we all need, to have our friends and support but to also enjoy our own time too and to have the strength to stand alone and choose our own path and be confident in it. It’s what makes each one of us an individual. I hope you had a wonderfully relaxing break, it was very chilled here with no work and little social media too and it was just what I needed. I’ve returned refreshed, with changes to my work load and outlook and life feels good. Happy New Year and Happy Birthday to a wonderful linky. Lots of love x
