Happy New Year! + Blogging Goals

I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays! I don’t typically celebrate Christmas (although I do buy gifts for close friends), however it’s a wonderful time of the year to be with the people you love the most, and to close out what can be an exhaustive, yet rewarding, year. Likewise, it’s nice to open the year again with the ones you love too! ūüėė I wasn’t really going to do a New Year’s Resolutions post as such however 2017 was such a good year for me blog-wise, that I thought that at least I could make mini-goals in this area. Going forward, I have plans for new and more challenging content. ūüôā I have dropped the idea of New Year’s Resolutions a while ago; ¬†particularly the ‘New Year New Me’ mantra which as soon as it’s January, is bombarded at you online and offline. Instead, I like to keep to making short-term goals in order to reach a bigger goal. I also despise the idea of waiting till New Year to make a goal or¬†to do …

Reset: 7 Changes I’m Making in 2017

New year always¬†gets me in such a mood to declutter every single thing¬†and re-evaluate my goals. As clich√© as it is in writing these¬†types of posts at¬†this time of year, I am¬†not sorry for having goals and wanting to better myself! So why not keep re-creating the best version of yourself? I become a neat freak as we approach mid-November. I already have in mind what areas that I would like to organise (think wardrobe, room furniture re-arranging etc.) and plan this step-by-step till the New Year. Charity or absolute garbage? Need this but definitely don’t need¬†that.¬†I know. It’s excessive but it’s a trait I’m proud of! A trait I’m not so proud of however is the inability to stick to¬†‘New Years Resolutions’. It is perhaps by its name and definition that it fails just as diets do because we only allow it to be temporary rather than a real lifestyle change. And then something that should be positive becomes negative because lo and behold, we are awful human beings. But I’d like to stick …

What Are You Thankful For? +Future Plans

Did everyone have a great weekend? Maybe you caught the Black Friday Weekend/Cyber Monday sale? I actually didn’t bother too much with that this year as I found that I didn’t really need to buy anything, nor did I want to buy anything just because of a huge sale. Maybe this is a part of being more ‘grown up’ – just by being a more practical person? (…which technically, is something I’m striving to be more of however ironic this whole blog may seem.) I am fully aware that it was Thanksgiving last week, so Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrated it! I almost wished it was tradition here in the UK but I guess, in conjunction with¬†Valentine’s Day, Mother’s/Father’s Day etc. you can always be thankful and loving regardless of festivities. I will say though, I particularly admire Thanksgiving because it doesn’t rely on gifting at all. This year, I am thankful for¬†finding a sense of self through this blog. Writing and sharing stream-of-line thoughts is completely free, and in many ways very relieving …

Just Me, My Mind + A Cup of Coffee

I hope everyone is well! It’s been a while since I’ve done a casual blog post where it’s just me chit-chatting and telling you my current thoughts. Today – or rather this month, I’m in more of my reflective moods so I wanted to lay it all on the table on what’s upcoming on this blog which has become so much more homely to me in a matter of months. The layout is closer and closer to what I had imagined my blog to be like with sensitivity to the content I would create –¬†that I want to create. A few years back, I would never have imagined I’d be doing this but here I am, seamlessly enjoying this space that I can call my own without having to compromise. This is my space after all. Firstly, I want to say¬†thank you¬†to everyone who has viewed and liked my posts in the past 3 months where I have been posting more regularly.¬†However great or small the amount, this has really encouraged me to continue on …

Change is the way I feel good

A lot can happen in a year even though it seems that each year that goes past as we get older, goes quicker like sand that seeps through our fingers. In the past 12 months or so, I could not tell you enough of the changes that I have been feeling mentally and emotionally. That is not to say changes can’t be physical either but really, I am so positive that all of you have woken up in a different light many times in your life (if you have not, you are either lying or about to experience it soon enough smiley face). I could also not tell you enough that I have had the most riveting, and emotionally challenging year that was full of the tears, the laughters, that feeling of heart-in-stomach as well as distress. How often does it happen that in the end there might have actually been nothing to worry about in the first place? Yep, happens all the time but we humans, just have to deal with our emotions being …
