Experiences and Lessons Learned in 2017

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…

Ask Boo – What’s a Vision Board and How to Create Your Own

Ask Boo – What’s a Vision Board and How to Create Your Own

I was introduced to vision boards by a friend of mine over five years ago, and ever since, it has been a yearly tradition of mine to sit down in January and decide what my goals are going to be for the year ahead. It gets me excited and makes me really focus on putting my ideas into actions, and…

Stop the New Year – New Me Bullsh*t and Start Real Goal Planning

Stop the New Year – New Me Bullsh*t and Start Real Goal Planning

Last night I had the pleasure of talking at local digital networking event, Digital People in Peterborough. I must put my hands-up and admit that while this was my second time talking at the event, I wasn’t meant to be doing a talk, and was, in fact, stepping in for my better half who couldn’t secure childcare. But as we’re…

My 30 Before 30 List

My 30 Before 30 List

Seen as it's the traditional time of year to make new habits, break old ones and think about what we want to achieve in the next twelve months. I thought I'd share with you my thirty before 30 list, in the hope it may inspire some of those new year's resolutions. I feel like I'm one of those lucky few…

Do Yourself a Favour – Let Go!

Do Yourself a Favour – Let Go!

This weekend I attended a Forrest Yoga Workshop at Equilibrium Yoga Centre in Peterborough. I spent five hours on Saturday doing yoga, and then another three on Sunday. Suffice to say; I don't know which area of my body aches the most. But aside from learning more about this intensely physical form of yoga, I was inspired by the theme…

Where’s the Bullshit Button When You Need One?

Where’s the Bullshit Button When You Need One?

I like to think I live my life in a pretty authentic manner. I don’t pretend to be anyone else; I don’t pretend to like things just because their ‘on trend’, and I don’t surround myself with people who I wouldn’t jump in front of a bus for. But the truth is we live in a world that is led…

Feeling the Holiday Blues

Feeling the Holiday Blues

If there’s one thing I wanted this blog to be, it’s a place for reality. And these past few weeks reality truly hit me. During July I had an incredible trip to Canada to visit my Dad. Not only was it emotional because I hadn’t seen him for so long, but it was also a massive eye opener to a…

Cancel the Pity Party – It’s Time for a Pep Talk

Cancel the Pity Party – It’s Time for a Pep Talk

If something dramatic has happened in your life it’s very easy to become a negative nancy and start a pity party for one. But the simple fact is, you have the power to change the way you see a situation. You can either embrace change and take on the new challenge, or put your head in the sand and wait…

The 2016 Library List

The 2016 Library List

In 2016 I was adamant that I was going to read one book a month. But thanks to a few radical life changes, I only managed 8, which I'm still pretty proud of considering that the previous year, reading had been a luxury only reserved for holidays. (Yes, I'm usually one of those traditional book readers who has half a…

It’s Time to Talk About January…

It’s Time to Talk About January…

Of all the months in the year, January always feels like an unwanted guest at a party. Nobody looks forward to it arriving, and when it does appear we try to ignore it as much as possible in the vain hope that it leaves as quickly as it arrived. Blame it on ‘blue Monday’ or the fact that our purse…
