Some changes.

Hi everyone. This is just a quick announcement post to let you know of the (positive) changes that I’m putting forward on this blog! I’ve been blogging (kinda) consistently for a good 3-4 years now and I feel that it’s finally time for it to move into a new chapter. I lost momentum with blogging/writing in the latter-half of last year and there’s really no excuse for this except to say that I didn’t keep up with it. I was even surprised to see I had as many views as I did in a couple of those months! But the truth is, I didn’t have a writing plan. A lot of posts I’ve written up until this New Year have been written days before upload. Sometimes even hours before upload. What does keep me going with this blog though is the fact that I do enjoy writing. I’ve set some new goals for this year and one of them does concern the blog. I honestly feel that it’s time for a re-birth and re-growth where …

If We Were Having Coffee #5

Happy new year, loves! I actually haven’t written one of these in a good 5/6 months so what better way to start the year off than with some coffee time on the blog? It’s undoubtedly still winter so grab your hot beverage and catch up with me below on where I’ve been and what I have set for 2020: If we were having coffee, I would tell you… Like every year, I make a group of New Years resolutions. Obviously, a good half of them are the same like any other year – read more, do more exercise, eat better, sleep better. This year, I decided that I would learn to cook and make some yummy new dishes. Towards the end of 2019, I got really bored of what I was bringing into work everyday food-wise – I just felt uninspired. I love food but to not put that same passion into cooking is quite frankly disappointing. I mean, I know how to cook but it would just be nice to make something new and …

Lately on Netflix #4

It’s been a rainy fall season so far with Netflix and coffee getting me through. I’m sure I have mentioned before but I go through phases when it comes to watching any movies or series. I have to be in the mood for one, and I have to have the time and need to be able to finish watching something. My mind is normally going all the time so it’s not everyday that I can focus on a certain storyline – especially if it’s a heavy one. Here’s a selection of some of the things I’ve watched in the past month, and my thoughts: Euphoria Okay – so we’re bending the rules and going in with a non-Netflix series first because it’s just too good to mention. (Besides, it’s not like every movie or series on Netflix is by Netflix.) If you feel like you have seen all the sexually-charged, drug-fuelled teenage series that there is to watch then think again. Euphoria does not merely spoon-feed you to only give you a glimpse of the …

My Busy Summer: Lessons in Self-Growth

Forgive me for having been absent from the blog for months. This summer just gone has been a whirlwind and quite frankly my busiest summer since…forever? It was nice though because I am not the type to book a holiday for next year. I do things in the moment or last minute which works well for some people and not so well for others. I am a spontaneous event planner. Somehow I found myself at a project after another and towards the end of my summer, I even went to Edinburgh for 4 days! Of course, these are all experiences accumulated from my new work but it was an unforgettable summer. I have met so many new people and whilst I can see more challenges ahead, it’s a start of something. A spark. Whether I should let it burn, ignite, is another story but I’m continuing the journey anyway. I haven’t written a life update since my last, so here’s a summary of events that took place this summer for me and what I took …

If We Were Having Coffee #4

This time it’s Mocha. Thank you for the love in my last If We Were Having Coffee session! I might make these a monthly/bi-monthly series to keep it going more consistently throughout the year – what do you think? I love writing them as it keeps me in-tact with my thoughts so it’s definitely an idea. It still continues to be a busy month but I just saw off the end to a project last week and am starting a new one next week at work with small projects in-between. A part of me just thinks I’m not made for an easy life but sometimes the rewards are sweeter. If we were having coffee, I would tell you: I am going through a journey or two right now where I’m facing a lot of my fears and in the process of defeating them. I may have mentioned in a new year goals post that I wanted to make 2019 a year about me, for me. It’s over halfway through the year and I feel that …
