6 Tips On Beating "Bad Days".

Everyone has bad days, they're part of being human. I for one get plenty of bad days, you wake up in the morning from the sound of your dreaded alarm clock and you drag yourself out of bed. You feel like there's a black cloud hovering over you, and the last thing you want to do is speak to someone. Or maybe you're late to work/school/college, you miss your bus, you fight with your siblings/parents/partner, you spill your coffee on your new shirt, etc. It is the start to a typical "bad" day.

12 Hours in Taormina, Sicily.

Taormina, Sicily has definitely been on my bucket list for a long time now and now as I live in Sicily I got the opportunity to go and see this stunning spot. Taormina is about a 45 minute train journey from Catania. When you arrive at the Taormina train station you must get a bus to go up to the top (because Taormina is up very high). The train and bus (both return tickets) will cost you less than €10 in total.

Why I Love Blogging

Since beginning CiaraSwalsh almost 3 years ago, I've grown so much. I've done things I've never even dreamed of doing and I've met people who bring out the best in me. In the last year or so  I've found it hard to tell people I'm a "blogger" because the word has been tainted by lies and inauthentic content. However, never have I ever associated CiaraSwalsh with the bad side of blogging. Why? Because I know that I am true to my followers and to myself.
