Self-Care Sunday #36

You may have noticed a lack of self-care posts over the last fortnight. Not gonna lie, I've not had a lot of time for self-care, despite my insistence that everyone should be able to find at least half an hour for themselves each week. We all have our bad weeks. What I've learned this week,… Continue reading Self-Care Sunday #36

Self-Care Sunday #35

This is gonna make me sound like a terrible mother but one of my highlights of the week is when Jenson goes to nursery on one of my days off. While I hate handing over that responsibility it means that Luke gets up and drops him off and I get a lie in! Is there… Continue reading Self-Care Sunday #35

Self-Care Sunday #34

There are few things in the world that tea and biscuits can't make better, at least for a few minutes. I feel like it's a very British thing to say but I'm sure we've all been in situations where something a bit shit has happened and the first instinct has been to put the kettle… Continue reading Self-Care Sunday #34

Self-Care Sunday #29

My blog is one of the few areas of my life where I like to be consistently busy - it gives me a reason to keep working on it rather than slacking. Plus regular collaborations are great for my self-confidence; I must be doing something right! The blog is also the part of my life… Continue reading Self-Care Sunday #29
