#Selfcare Sunday Series | Navigating Friendships and Deciphering Toxic Negativity

Happy Sunday! Amidst everything crazy that is happening right now, I hope you are all keeping well and being kind to each other. I also need to keep my mind off it too so I’ll be attempting to write more. Firstly, I’d like to say Thank You to everyone who commented on my post about Getting Over My Anxiety for Driving. It was a topic that I desperately needed to write, even if no one was going to read it (clearly I don’t trust page views). But reading some of your comments to confirm the similar struggles that you had, particularly for driving, was really heartfelt and helped open up a whole new avenue that I didn’t know existed. I no longer felt as stupid and actually, I would like to promote this sort of topical confession/discussion more in the future. #PositiveMentalHealth #Positivity 🙂 I’ve been keeping up with driving so much so that I’ve enjoyed it in the past few weeks. I’m hoping to tackle dual carriageways soon but only once the weather calms …

#Selfcare Sunday Series | How to Make your New Years Resolutions/Goals Count This Year

Happy Sunday! I hope everyone has had a re-charged weekend! I have been sleeping terrible overall…I just can’t seem to get comfortable but most of all, I have been finding it hard to shut my mind down. Even though on the surface and in general, my personality is very chilled, my mind is in fact going 100mph. Does anyone have any tips for sleeping better? I’m going to try some different teas to see if that would help but at the moment, I’ve been feeling like a zombie. Anyways – back to topic: I wanted to tap into more advice-giving posts this year so to start 2020 off, I’m going to be rounding off my best tips to getting your New Years resolutions in-check this year! If you don’t believe in them, that’s totally fine – just replace them with any goals throughout the year that you may have! Create a Rough Timeline Note that I mentioned ‘rough’. It’s important to have clear goals but nothing is set in stone unless you have a deadline …

April Monthly Favourites | 2019

So I’m going to try something a bit new when it comes to writing my Favourites. I think it would be a nice touch to make it themed and I don’t necessarily mean being descriptive about the seasons because we all know how messed up that is at the moment! (The sun has decided to come out today though so there’s that.) The theme will mostly be down to how I have been feeling overall that month or it could be something/someone I’m feeling deeply inspired by. I’m not someone who follows trends head-on so I thought this would be a nice approach in tying all my favourites together in one group intuitively. It may work. It may not work. But we’re trying it out!

One Door Closes, Another Door Opens

There’s no other way to say it so I’ll just say it. As of Tuesday, I’ve been formally dismissed from my work. I failed my probation. But don’t threat, I’m actually not in a bad mood. Yes, of course I am a little disheartened but overall this feels like a very good breakup. (It’s strange but that’s the only way that I can describe it.) I didn’t know how I would feel because quite frankly, I have never failed anything. Like ever. But somehow, I felt this huge rush of relief flow through me yesterday when the outcome had been confirmed in a confidential meeting. Considering what had imploded in the past few months, it was probably wishful-thinking to think that I was ever going to pass. I wanted to keep that hope alive though because it’d suck to exit without trying and fighting and for the person that I am, I give my 110% in everything that I do. Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn’t but hand on my heart, I tried my …

Write Through Your Emotions

Note: You’ll figure out through reading this (if you’re an avid reader) that this is in the context of a few weeks ago. I’m posting it late anyways so enjoy. I finished season 1 of Netflix series You last night – have you watched it yet? All of my friends and colleagues have and wow, that was some next level of intense along with a couple of swear words here and there for expression. Anyways, I’ve been in a writing mood lately. Note that I said writing and not blogging. You might see some more written pieces in the next few posts…let’s say that I’m taking advantage of these moments in my life to write. I remember whilst I was still studying Fashion Design, one of the tutors was giving us a crash course lesson in draping and a tip she gave was to drape through your emotions. I think that’s what I really liked about the subject – sure it’s subjective but you could utilise your emotion to make a great thing. I firmly …
