Welcome to my UK lifestyle and money blog
Welcome to the Lylia Rose UK money and lifestyle blog. My name is Victoria Sully. I'm a busy mum of two, wife, full-time blogger and online money-maker who’s always trying to make and save more money. I’m passionate about making money online, healthy living and blogging. I’m a mama on a mission to be healthier and wealthier! Please join me on my journey.
See below for my favourite topics and what you’ll discover on my website.
Making & saving money
I love making extra cash from home around my parenting duties. It's even turned into a full time job for me. In this section I share all the ways I've tried to make money online and from home, as well as lots of other money related topics such as saving money on your everyday shopping and turning your hobby into a job. Find various money menus in my main menu at the top if you're looking for something specific.
Do you want to make money from your blog, are thinking of setting up a money making blog, or perhaps you're already a pro-blogger but want to learn from others in the same business? Check out my money making bloggers series to see how bloggers make money from their blogs. See how much they work on their blogs, how much they make and what their best income sources are.
An inspirational series sharing guest posts from other bloggers with tips and tricks to make money from home, even as a busy parent. Interviews of mums and others who already make money from home learning what they do, what keeps them motivated and inspired as well as the pros and cons to each method.

In my blogging section I share lots of tips and advice from a seasoned blogger. Learn how to make money from your blog and general blogging advice.
Being a small business owner and self-employed myself, I love to read and learn about small business marketing, social media and their benefits to businesses and bloggers like myself. I love to share my knowledge and anything new I learn that fascinates me.
I'm passionate about only using natural products on my skin, not only for my own health and safety, but for the benefit of the environment. After all, where do you suppose all our cosmetics and toiletries end up once they are washed off our skin?
I'm also very passionate about healthy living. To me healthy living is the whole package. It's eating the most nutritious foods, being active every day, reducing stress and living in a healthy eco friendly environment. I follow a vegan, plant-based whole foods diet, as do my children and husband. I don't drink alcohol and I don't consume anything with added sugar at home. I really do practice what I preach! It's a topic I can talk about for hours and I top up my knowledge by watching lectures, documentaries and reading articles every single day. It's probably the topic I am most obsessed about and bore my husband to death about!
Part of healthy living to me, is being eco friendly. There's no point in eating organic food if you're then smearing toxic chemicals all over your skin or breathing them in. Eco friendliness stretches far beyond simply recycling and reusing. It's everything we choose to use. It's the choices we make every day. I've started thinking more about the consequences of my life on the environment over the past few years. It's a topic I am becoming increasingly passionate about and I'll share the ways we are trying to be more sustainable.
Home & family
We moved into our first purchased home together in May 2014. Since then it's been a labour of love to totally transform every room. We went for an old house which totally needed some love and major updating! I love all things home and garden as it's right on point with us doing up our own first home.
This is a place for me to share anything I want lifestyle related or family related. I post a monthly family roundup once a month which is like an online scrapbook for me and the kids to look through. It's a great way to record all the highlights and memories. It's also a great way for you to see the person behind the blog and what normal family life is like for us. I also share anything kid related in this section. With two young children we do a lot of kid related activities!
Travel has taken a bit of a back seat whilst we purchased our first home which is using all our spare cash, as well as getting married and having two babies! Now things are progressing and the children are getting older we finally have some travel plans. In this section I always share reviews of days out, places I'd love to visit and anything related to family travel. We purchased a Mazda Bongo Friendee with pop-top in summer 2018 so I'm hoping to adventure a bit more!
