Self-Care Sunday #32

I've been daily blogging for a while now and I bleddy love it - although some days it's a bit of a struggle. Don't get me wrong, this schedule is entirely self-inflicted; I have so many ideas and there are so many awesome brands and creatives that I want to work with that I am… Continue reading Self-Care Sunday #32

Self-Care Sunday #26

Do you have a place where you can go where you instantly feel relaxed an at peace? Earlier this week I popped into a little memorial garden and it was so beautiful and peaceful. I'm always walking past on the way to the park with Jenson but this time we popped in and I was… Continue reading Self-Care Sunday #26

Self-Care Sunday #25

When I sat down to have a go at calligraphy the other night I was reminded of how relaxing I find it to take some time away from screens and do something creative. I used to really enjoy spending time doodling in my bullet journal but I started to get a bit stressed and anxious… Continue reading Self-Care Sunday #25

Self-Care Sunday #23

Blogging is the rare bit of time I get to myself. I write for my own sanity more than any other reason and when I don't get the chance to write for a few days I feel a bit on edge. I don't like to write at my laptop in front of Jenson because I… Continue reading Self-Care Sunday #23

Self-Care Sunday #20

It's been another week where I've not had a lot of time to myself but last night I actually asked for help. I'm behind on blogging (I put too much pressure on myself to stick to my self-imposed schedule) and I haven't had time to work on my contributions to an awesome magazine which I've… Continue reading Self-Care Sunday #20

Self-Care Sunday #19

This week's post may seem like a bit of a cop out as I've not had any time for self-care this week but stick with me here. My latest self-care tip is to have a good moan. Seriously, don't bottle it all up. It wasn't until 8.30pm on Friday that I finally had some time… Continue reading Self-Care Sunday #19

Saturday Share #98

What a week for blogging. I managed to check into the Blogosphere chat again, saw the reveal of the latest cover star (another name I'd never heard of - can I even call myself a blogger?!) and Twitter soon revealed the topic of blogger controversy for the week: scheduled tweets in the wake of the… Continue reading Saturday Share #98

Self-Care Sunday #13

Wow, it's been a busy week. I've done the equivalent of an extra working day from home this week, taken Jenson to his swimming lesson, gymnastics and the park, plus lunch with the family and general mum/housework duties, so there's not been a helluva lot of time for me/self-care. Fortunately, I started a gratitude journal… Continue reading Self-Care Sunday #13
