Making Holidays A Discovery Again

Making Holidays A Discovery Again

As we finally come out of peak holiday season and begin to tiptoe into the autumn months, I thought now was probably a better time than any to talk about my step back from holiday spam. Before you worry that this is going to be a rant of epic proportions about bragging snaps that get spammed across social media during…

30Before30 Experience – Flower Arranging

30Before30 Experience – Flower Arranging

If you’ve been following my 30Before30 list you’ll know that at Number 7, was learning how to arrange flowers. However, rather than submit myself onto a local college course, I enquired with a local floral stylist here in Stamford whose arrangements had completely stolen my heart. When I had spotted these vibrant, wild bouquets in my local deli; which were…

Why You Need to Invest In Yourself

Why You Need to Invest In Yourself

About five year’s ago, I found myself at a bit of a loss. I was no longer enjoying the job I used to adore, and my relationship felt like it was a constant battle. For the first time in my life I was facing that grand old question of - “what am I doing with my life?” - And for…

My Plastic Free Journey

My Plastic Free Journey

Now before I begin this post I have to put out a disclaimer that I am in no way a plastic-free expert, and I'm fully aware that there are many things we do in our lives that have a huge impact on the environment. Such as go on planes when we going on holiday and buy fast-fashion. The fact is,…

30 Before 30 – 4 Month Update

Wow, I can’t believe I’m 4 months into my 30before30 list! Despite feeling a little apprehensive about doing this post, I was nicely surprised that I’ve actually made some real progress on my list, which is so exciting. I think sometimes we can spend so much time looking to the next thing, that we forget just how much we’ve done…

Learning to Live with Less

Learning to Live with Less

I hold my hands up, I used to be the kind of girl that would eagerly await payday just so that I could splurge on a list of lust-worthy items I had stored at the checkout. Yep, before I’d even received any money in my bank account I was already working out the ways I was going to spend it.…

Letting Go Of The Toxic Friendships

Letting Go Of The Toxic Friendships

When I recently put out a vote on what my next video topic should be there was a resounding request to discuss friendships. Call me cynical, but I think we’ve all struggled in this area of relationships perhaps more so than we would like to admit. Yes, those romantic experiences are always up there in our tireless journey to find…

My 2017 Reading List

My 2017 Reading List

In 2017 I made a small pact with myself that I would attempt to read one book every single month. How did that go? Well, like many good intentions, I didn’t quite make it to twelve books, but I did read eight. Which is actually two more than I read the year before, so I think somewhere in there, there…

Stop Being Stubborn – Accept Help

Stop Being Stubborn – Accept Help

From a very young age, I’ve been fiercely independent. I don’t know where this has come from, whether it was being brought up around three brothers that made me not want to be seen as the ‘weak girl’, or my introduction to Destiny’s Child and the Spice Girls that made me feel like an empowered little diva. Whatever the trigger,…

Experiences and Lessons Learned in 2017

I know many people that don’t ‘get the point’ of celebrating a new year. But to me, I see it as a fresh new chapter. A chance to make more memories, learn from the past, and start off on an exciting journey. At the end of each year, I take time to look back and appreciate the experiences I’ve had…
