Yuhuh, I went there. Jon Snow, who? Sorry to all you hardcore GoT fans I’m just not down. It’s not that I don’t *like* it – I just wasn’t into it when it first kicked off and now you guys are so far in I couldn’t possibly catch up. Dungeons and dragons just aren’t really my thing so it was never going to be a huge hit with me. BUT. This is not to say that I don’t love me a good series. I do, and I’m going to tell you what’s hot in my world when it comes to binge watching.
For most people, their home is their haven. Somewhere they can relax when things get them down. At home, you can truly relax, be yourself and do what you want, when you want, right? Totally.
Looking after your home is really important. It is an investment in yourself and can have a huge impact on your general well-being. The way you decorate can be particularly important. It has a big impact on the feeling of each room. Let’s look at how to decorate in a way that creates a feel-good ambience that will help you to relax and recharge your batteries.
Money is always a tricky subject. We always want more. We don’t like what things cost. We have to pay for certain stuff. The list goes on. What I’ve come to realise as I’ve become a proper adult is I’m actually really good with money. I’m not sure where it’s come from (probs good parenting, holla at you Mumma) but I know what I’ve got and I know what I can spend. Here are my three ways to be better with money because in my opinion, I’ve got it nailed.
During our recent visit to Rethymno, Platanias and Chania in Crete we did some pretty awesome things. We’re not the usual sit around the pool holiday-makers. Of course, we love to relax but we also love to get out and so some fun and exciting activities that we can’t do at home. Here are three of the best things to do if you ever venture to north Crete!
Inspiration is a huge thing to me. But, there are so many things that people demonise these days like Instagram, the internet and hashtags like #inspo because they’re bad for people’s self confidence. I totally agree that it goes too far sometimes but I think that Instagram and Pinterest especially can be amazing for motivation and inspiration for yourself!
Holiday season is well and truly here and everyone’s heading away to catch some rays! I’m off to Crete soon and I can’t wait for some relaxation, feta cheese and seriously pretty sunsets. The only thing that can be a little tricky in our vacay situations is trying to fit everything you own into a teeny, tiny suitcase!
When I say ‘free’ weekend I mean those super rare ones where you have absolutely zero plans! I had one last weekend for the first time in about 6 weeks. We’ve been up and down the country, zipping to various appointments, seeing friends and family and having city breaks. Check out my favourite place for coffee in Leeds and where we stayed if you’re interested. I love being busy but it almost becomes a novelty when you have a weekend that you can do anything that you want with. Here are 7 things that I like to do when I have all the time in the world.
We live in a society where people are always telling you to grab life by the balls, carpe diem, push yourself out of your comfort zone and live a little! Basically, the pressure to say yes to things is huge because if you’re a ‘no person’ you can be seem as boring, negative and essentially not a good enough person.
There’s nothing wrong with being a basic sometimes when trends are this cute. I totally don’t care! You be as authentic and original as you like but I’m sticking here with these cutie-matootie trends that I can’t get enough of. From Pinterest style to that holiday Instagram prop, you name it, I’m on it.
My first spending diary was really popular so I thought I’d do another for this week just gone! Kicking it off is my food shopping as I explained in my last post, I keep separate budgets for my weekly spends and my food shopping. My half of the food shop was £15.45 this week which was our cheapest shop of the month. We weren’t at home for dinner twice in this week so we didn’t need as much food, obviously! Again, this weekly spends runs Saturday- Friday.
