April Fools!

Hey guys! Hope you're all having a lovely weekend. I've got my nose to the grindstone again today, got to crack on with my essay, I hope at least some of you are having a more relaxing weekend than I am!

Is it just me, or did March go by really slowly? It feels like ages since I wrote my last "first of the month" post. I've had the busiest month of my life work-wise so I guess that could be why :( I also completely failed to read Yes Man, which was supposed to be reviewed in March :/ I'm going to get that done as soon as possible, I'm really enjoying the book so hopefully it won't take too much longer. I'm taking part in a Book Tour with my blog this month so you'll soon see a review coming up for that! I won't tell you what it is yet and spoil the surprise :)

On a positive note, I applied for lots of jobs this month (I've yet to hear back from any of them but that's not the point!!) and I'm hoping to secure at least a little something, even if it's to start in September. I have to save money somehow to pay for my ticket to Tortola, it's extra expensive this year because I'm flying back right around when the Olympics are on. :/
I also became Treasurer of the St AndRe-Use society, which is pretty cool. I have a special bank account in my name :)
Now, on to the important bit! Welcoming that start of April. I want to start as I always do by giving a BIG MASSIVE HUG to all of my beautiful followers! I LOVE YOU GUYS. Seriously :) I also want to say a HUGE HELLO and welcome to all of my new followers! Hope you enjoy reading my posts to come! If I haven't followed you back please leave your links below this post so I can take a peek at your blog because GFC often doesn't show blog links when I click on profiles!

Here's what I have planned for this month:
♥ Skrillex in Glasgow
♥ 3 Year Anniversary with Tony
♥ Deadlines, deadlines, deadlines...
♥ Blog Book Tour
♥ A new LinkLove feature once a week (Wednesdays)! I'm going to choose one blog that I've recently found that I think deserves a lot more followers If you have less than 100 followers and want to be considered send me an email!
♥ 500 Follower Giveaway (if I get there this month - the number has been flying up!)

Here's a roundup of my current features:
Monday - Be My Guest
Wednesday - LinkLove
Friday - NOTW
Monthly - Book Review, Quick Tip (x2)

If you would like to write a GUEST POST for me at any point (on any topic!) please do not hesitate to email me - islandgirlinsights@hotmail.co.uk


That's all the main stuff I can think of right now :) But of course there will be plenty more!!

Don't forget you can still ENTER MY NERDLACQUER GIVEAWAY - I've had an overwhelming number of entries for this and I'm so pleased that so many of you loved this giveaway. Totally love you guys. I can't begin to think of the mammoth task I have when it comes to checking thousands of entires!! :)

And if you're a NON-UK Blogger I'd love to have you for the BLOG LOVE SWAP! Don't forget to keep an eye on your email inbox AND junk for an email right after you've signed up! Just a quick note about the swap - When it's all done and I've received everyones swap post links I'm going to make a big post with all the link pairs so everyone can have a nosey at the lovely packages! Lots of LinkLove :)

What are you getting up to this month? ♥
