People around you are a reflection of yourself

I think it is really important to write these kind of posts every now and again. Not just for my readers but for myself too. You see so many social media posts where one person says something negative and it spirals out of control. Comment after comment is made with either in agreement or fighting against what is being said causing more negativity. It is very rare you see a very negative post and someone comments on it something happy or cheery. We live in a world where people love to moan  ...

Mother’s Day- A dedication to my mum

So no, this is not a beauty post nor is it a review of some kind. This is a post of dedication. This is a post dedicated to my mum, because…let’s be honest… without her, where would I be? My mum is called Dawn. Always happy, always bright and always full of hope just like a summer’s dawn. She is a wonderful woman who has spent her entire life caring for others. My mother, until recently, was a nurse. Aged 18 she moved into nursing quarters and from that very day her  ...

The First Day of Spring

So today is the first day of spring. I absolutely love this time of year, it is a time when all the flowers start to bloom, the daffodils are pretty much in full swing and the hope of summer is simmering on everyone’s lips. Spring, for me, is opening the window when you wake up and feeling the every so lightly cool breeze through the crack and you hear the birds singing. Spring is walking in the woods with just a jumper and seeing the bluebells. Winter is always so wet and dreary in  ...

The Reality of Blogging

I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while now, originally I had planned it for my one year blogversary and for it to be titled “What I learned in my first year of blogging” but then i thought i would hold off for a better time. Blogging, i feel, gets kind of put on a pedestal. But blogging is hard work, it takes dedication, consistency and patience. Blogging is extremely time-consuming. You need to be prepared to take the opportune photo and be thinking this in the back of your mind  ...

5 Things You Can Do For A More Productive Morning

Being a “morning person” is more about the habits you create more that anything else. I have always wasted my mornings and tend to begin really doing anything around lunchtime- what a waste of half a day. That has changed over the last few years due to the fact i now have a step-son and getting up as soon as it is light seems to be the norm. I have found that my morning routine has changed into 5 things i do every morning and they, without a doubt, make it more productive. So here are 5  ...

Happy 1st Birthday!

One whole year ago my blog was a fresh clean page, ready for creativity to start. March 3rd saw me finally put pen to paper and begin a whirlwind of excitement and adventure. Initially i was going to do a ‘what i’ve learnt in my first year of blogging’ type of post, but that is just too cliche for me. Instead, i just wanted to look at what has happened in the past year and how fun it has been. The year has seen just over 100 posts, 75 new products and a whole new book club  ...

Finding how to switch off

I’ve really been throwing myself into my writing recently and it was brought to my attention that i need to take some time for myself for a change. My mind has been whirring with YouTube numbers and edited videos, of Instagram ideas and emails to reply to, of posts to be written and tweets to be scheduled. Life is a never end list of things i must get done and its time to take some me time. At the end of the month I have planned a spa weekend away which i super excited about.  ...
