My Blogging Must-Haves!

I am no techie and I don't have all the gizmos + gadgets, but the list below are the things I have in order to actually blog,  plus they're affordable which is ALWAYS a bonus!

You don't need to have expensive tools to start (unless you already have them) and these all work and are perfect for me and my needs…

HP Laptop

This laptop is compact, fast & easy to use, It's fab for blogging and I love it! (it's a Windows 10 as I'm not a MAC user) 

Wireless Mouse

I love this mouse as it's super smooth. I've had a few (some expensive) but I love this one as it's light, not expensive & simple!

Mouse Mat

A good mouse mat is always a must. Trying to use one on a table just doesn't cut it. Again, this is simple & affordable.

Laptop Rucksack 

I adore this laptop bag. It has so much space inside too, so I can carry everything I need around it in. It's super cute too!

A5 Journal

I love a good journal to jot everything down & this one's soft, affordable and simple, as I don't like overcomplicated journals!
