What Have I Been Writing About in October?

Hey, guys!

If you’re new to this blog, welcome. If you’re a loyal reader, welcome back.

The latter will know that I recently started doing a round-up every four weeks of my favourite articles that I’d written as a freelance writer during that particular month. (If you missed the July, August and September instalments, catch up on them here, here and here.)

I’ll also start including a little overview of how things are going with my business Dream Scribe for those who are interested! #freelancewriterclub

October was a great month for me and my biz. In fact, it marked six months since I started this whole freelance writing thang. And, I have to say, it’s going swimmingly!

I actually had my first four-figure month (mini Mexican wave in celebration of me – a-woohoo) which is a milestone I’m so happy to have reached in such a short space of time.

I’m still writing primarily in the fashion and travel niches, but I’ve also branched out further into the lifestyle/happiness/self-help sector, which I hope will continue to progress. As a 27-year-old millennial woman who’s been through a helluva lot (haven’t we all?), I have plenty of stories to tell and tips to share on how we could all live our best lives!

Without further ado, here are 5 of my favourite articles that I wrote in October.


1. How to Choose the Right Clothing for a Gift

With Christmas around the corner, I thought this article was very fitting for October’s round-up.

I don’t know about you guys, but I really struggle with buying gifts for other people sometimes – especially when it involves clothing. In this article for Love to Know, I share my knowledge and expertise to make sure you purchase a clothing gift that your loved one will not only wear but wear with pride.


2. You’re Going to Love These AW17 Beauty Trends

Sure, I love to explore fashion trends season upon season (check out my AW17 fashion trend round-up here), but I also adore seeing what’s new in the world of beauty.

As an avid make-up lover, I was only too happy to write this trends-based article for fashion retailer Obsessory, which includes details from the AW17 designer runways. You’re welcome, fellow beauty fanatics!

Dating and Relationships

3. Ladies, Chill Out! Let Him Miss You

My friends always tend to come to me with their dating and relationships problems. Why I hear you ask? Well, they say that I give good advice.

One of my friends (who will remain She Who Shall Not Be Named) was recently making a lot of mistakes when it came to guys, bless her. She wasn’t giving the guys that she was dating any opportunities to miss her. Therefore, she inspired this article for women’s lifestyle magazine The Bolde, in the hope that other ladies out there will also benefit from it.

Mental Health

4. From Socialite to Recluse: Depression and My College Years

This article was an incredibly personal one for me to write. I was first diagnosed with depression during my university years, and I have battled with it on and off ever since.

I wanted to share my story through mental health community Sad Runner, solely for the reason that it might help someone out who currently in a similar situation as I was.

Remember, depression is an illness and we must fight back!


5. 10 Important Questions to Ask Your Dad
