“I hope we still…” Things I’d like to remain in the ‘new normal’

Complete lock down feels like a distant and surreal memory to me now. Thinking back it doesn’t seem real that I spent 12 weeks isolating in the house and trying to keep safe from the virus that has devastated the world. While we are still seeing localised lock downs in some areas of the UK,Continue reading ““I hope we still…” Things I’d like to remain in the ‘new normal’”

How Instagram made me doubt my wedding plans

Ah, Instagram. I very much have a love hate relationship with Instagram. I love seeing some people’s pictures, videos and motivational quotes but I also have this problem where I want to stop following some people, but don’t feel I can for some strange reason. Classic FOMO. I was quite happy plodding along in aContinue reading “How Instagram made me doubt my wedding plans”

Lock down, slow down

With more and more restrictions being eased every week, lock down now seems like a strange dream or distant memory. Life is starting to look more normal every day although with some modifications such as people wearing face masks and ample hand sanitizer to use in every shop and building you enter. It’s been aroundContinue reading “Lock down, slow down”

Finding out my personality type

Have you ever wondered why you do things the way you do? Or why you prefer to be some social situations and not others? I did too. I had always wondered why I did things the way I did and what made me different to other people. I had always felt different, maybe because IContinue reading “Finding out my personality type”

Things I would like to continue after lock down.

If anyone had told me in January that the world would be ravaged by a new virus, our country would go into lock down and I’d be spending 12 weeks at home I wouldn’t have believed it. I still can’t believe it most days because it’s such a surreal time in our lives and oneContinue reading “Things I would like to continue after lock down.”

My favourite plastic free swaps and eco advice.

It’s hard to go anywhere or do anything now without hearing about how humans are affecting the planet. We are consuming too much, producing too much waste and polluting our planet with rubbish and plastic waste. I started looking for ways that I could help after the legendary David Attenborough put a program on theContinue reading “My favourite plastic free swaps and eco advice.”

How has the lock down changed my relationship with money?

I’ve always had a love, hate relationship with money. When I was younger I was always a spender, as soon as I got my pocket money it would be burning a hole in my pocket to be spent. I never thought about saving for the future because when you’re 10, you don’t. Having that bagContinue reading “How has the lock down changed my relationship with money?”

Learning to let go, my journey to minimalism.

When I was younger I used to keep everything. If I picked up some pebbles on the beach I’d become attached to them and keep them, the same with toys, clothes, books and anything else you can imagine. My bedroom was bursting at the seams, I had bags of stuff in my parents loft thatContinue reading “Learning to let go, my journey to minimalism.”

What happened when I did 30 days of Yoga with Adriene?

May was a bit of a month of firsts for me. It was the first month I tried journaling (read more here), the first month I set myself intentional goals, and the first month I aimed to do a yoga with Adriene video every single day. Every month, Adriene posts a calendar and a YouTubeContinue reading “What happened when I did 30 days of Yoga with Adriene?”

It’s time to talk

In last week’s post, I reviewed a few of my favourite self help and lifestyle books in support of mental health awareness month. I’ve been reading books in this genre for years and years in an attempt to better understand my own mental health problems. I even spent a couple of years studying a degreeContinue reading “It’s time to talk”
