This time of year can suck. It’s cold, we’re all trying to keep to our New Year’s resolutions of spending less money and working out more and all we want to do is wear cute spring dresses and drink cocktails. Well, this is me anyway. But, alas, we can’t do all of these things all the time and I’m definitely not wearing a cute spring dress any time soon. I am the thermal queen and I am proud. So, I’ve been having a think about a few things that can still pop a smile on your face (or at least make you happy inside if you’re heartless like me) that are really simple!
Hello, January! We’re into a new year and it’s time to do all those things that we’ve wanted to do for ages and for me. one of them is reading. I was bought some lovely books for Christmas and I can’t wait to get stuck in to them and do a little bedtime reading instead of scrolling. Here are the three books that I’ll be indulging in over January, they’re all different subjects but they’re all going to be super useful.
The year runs away with us so quickly, doesn’t it? All of a sudden it’s September at the end of the week and we’re only a few months away from Christmas and then the dreaded New Year’s Eve rolls around and it’s back to making resolutions we might not keep. Stress!
I’ve had a think about the things that I want to achieve by the end of 2017. This year’s gone so, so quickly for me as I’m sure it has for everyone else but I’m determined to get some stuff done over the next few weeks and months!
City living is great for a lot of reasons. I know I love it compared to small town life. Most cities are exciting places to be. You can pop out for a coffee, or a meal, whenever you fancy. You never have to miss out because the bus times were wrong, or you had no way of getting there. Plus points aside (and, honestly, there are a lot of them!) there are some not so great things. Sometimes, city living can get on top of you. We all need peace and quiet sometimes. And, something that’s a particular problem when the sun starts shining; outside space can be hard to come by. I know this at the moment, especially as sometimes when the sun comes out I miss my garden!
Just recently I’ve been feeling a little overwhelmed and a teeny bit uninspired so I’ve decided to take a week and then my up coming city break this weekend to have a step back from the blog and get super inspired again. Time to get my mojo back!
There’s been so much happening recently in my little world that it’s been difficult to focus. Fortunately I know a couple of things that help me when I’m feeling a bit lost and I’m definitely going to make sure I do these so I can come back to my blog feeling fresh in a week or so!
Change is never easy. Sure, it’s exciting and it provides you with new ways to live your life, but it definitely isn’t easy. Your twenties is a time of your life when everything seems to be changing – your friends are coupling up and getting increasingly less enthusiastic about doing shots of sambuca at 2am on a Wednesday night – and if you’re honest, the idea of vegging out to Netflix on your sofa wrapped in a duvet sounds quite appealing to you as well. Here are three of the biggest life changes that might happen to you in your twenties and how best to handle them…
Growing up is hard for many reasons. One day you’re young and carefree, the next you could swear blind you’re getting wrinkles! It happens sooner than most of us would like. But, the good news is that growing older isn’t all doom and gloom. Instead of focusing on the negative implications of lost youth, we’re going to look at the positive factors of the years passing by!
I’ve been kind of a bad blogger recently but you know when you can’t really get excited about anything and need a bit of a break? Yep. Pretty much it! That said, I did publish two posts last week and some people only do one post a week as standard so I don’t think I should beat myself up about it at all. I’m having a bit of a chill out with my blog at the moment, I still love it but I don’t want it to feel like a chore. So, when I don’t feel like blogging about anything, I won’t. This way, hopefully, every post will actually be as good as I want it to be and it won’t be forced at all.
The New Year will be with us in a matter of weeks, so it’s time to start thinking about the resolutions we want to make. Whatever it is, changing yourself for the better is always a positive thing. But sometimes it can be difficult to get excited about change. Motivation is something we all should be full of as our lives are so filled with potential and opportunity. If you want to get more motivated in 2016, use this simple tricks and tips to get you started.
As much as I’m all for being strong independent women and all that there’s one thing that I’m pretty useless at. Cars. Simply put, I’m not bothered. It can get me from A to B and I probably won’t wash it or clean it out (gross) until it’s literally awful. This was what I was like with my first car, I loved him, don’t get me wrong but he served a purpose and was pretty minging by the end.
