Hi, I’m Tereza – a 20-something year old blogger based in Birmingham (and now also in Prague!) with an Eastern European accent (although you could argue that the Czech Republic is kinda in the centre, rather than in the East), two kittens (my bestest of friends Cookie & a naughty little devil Princess Pippin) and a penchant for nude lipsticks (I insist that Beige by Bobbi Brown is the ultimate perfection), ficus plants (my aim is to collect all 500 species, still have about 491 to go!) & peculiar curio shop finds (am I the only one mesmerised by vintage forks and jam spoons?). With a background in tourism & destination management and 6+ years of marketing experience I’ve created Cityscape Bliss – an online destination for bloggers who want to turn their hobby into a full-blown career (just like I have!). And it’s also a lifestyle blog full of travel tips, DIYs & photos of cute kittens. You’ve got to have a balance in life, right?
Cityscape Bliss is an online destination which offers 3 separate yet fully aligned areas of blogging:
- Cityscape Bliss is a UK lifestyle blog – it follows a journey of a girl who moved from a tiny Czech village to the second city in the UK with just a carry on (which contained a pair of jeans, two tops, one jumper and FIVE books including complete works of Woody Allen, no regrets). From the verz end of 2017 it also follows a journey of a girl who moved, together with her 2 very naughty cats, from the second city in the UK to Prague, a decently sized Czech capital (because YOLO!). It is a journal full of beauty & style tips, home decor inspiration & DIY projects, easy recipes, travel diaries, cat toy hauls and fitness reflections.
- Cityscape Bliss is a blog to job platform – it offers a wide range of services which help bloggers accelerate their growth and turn their blog into a source of full-time income and a career. Blogging full-time is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made and I believe that everyone is more than capable of achieving the same. Let your passion pay for your bills & live the life you’ve always wanted!
- Cityscape Bliss as a source of free tips & tricks to accelerate your blog growth – it offers an in-depth resource library full of tips & tricks from myself and other bloggers alike. From tips to grow your Pinterest to recommended affiliate networks to join and free printable planners. This is not your average resource library that will give you 5 brief blog improvement checklists in exchange for your e-mail address subsequently flooding you with newsletters stuffed with affiliate sale pitches. This is a library you’ll want to come back to.
And why should you stick with me?
I have been part of this blogging shebang for a couple of years now. Seven years, to be exact. And I’ve been loving every minute of it, even when Princess Pippin made tiny teeth marks in my laptop, even when the Gossip Guru was still a thing. It started as a beauty review blog – because the tom boy I used to be wanted to fit in with all the pretty girls she met at the university. Very soon after the launch (if I can even call it that – create a blog – new – simple template – boom!), Cityscape Bliss was long-listed for Marie Claire Blog Awards in the category Best Beauty Blog (look here!). As the months and years went on, I outgrew Cityscape Bliss – or to be correct, I let it grow with me. Now this remote corner of the internet is a scrapbook of my life – you know, one of those really colourful ones with postcards and little Polaroid photos poking out from the pages. I like to think that it’s one of those that inspires you to make your life just as colourful – in a simple, village girl kind of way. I’m your real-life proof that anyone can have a blog, no matter whether your passion lies in pretty dresses, history books or visiting castles in France. If you want to write about it, you can make a living out of it!
