It’s been a whirlwind, but I’ve finally started travelling on my own. Something my anxious self never thought I would be able to do. Deciding to take the plunge and travelling alone has really been an act of self-care for me. Realising that I don’t need anybody else to catch a flight, anywhere in the world, is really exhilarating.
Well, it’s a little bit more painful than others, but like with every breakup, it’s for the best. And my split with fast fashion is a journey I’m actually looking forward to. Continue reading My breakup with fast fashion
My mum always warns me when I’m throwing out old clothes that “fashion does a 360”. However, the new Dad trainer trend completely surprised me. Ugly dad trainers have never been in fashion, so why are spongey, chunky trainers absolutely everywhere now? Continue reading Styling the Dad trainer trend
A couple of weeks ago on a Sunday night, I kept myself awake, dreading going into work; my brain was haunted by the big list of to-dos I had waiting for me on my desk. As the weekend came I vividly remember not feeling even a little excited (I know this seems like such a first world problem)…I wasn’t excited because waiting there for me as I left the office was a big list of to-dos waiting for me to tackle on Monday.

We’ve all probably found ourselves in some kind of rut; feeling stuck, unmotivated or unsatisfied with life or aspects of your life like your job, relationship etc. It’s completely normal to start to feel this way, especially in the age of social media where we compare ourselves to everybody’s fabricated lives.
Many times I have found myself in a mental prison, with no hope or motivation to get out. Over time I have researched and found my own ways to cope. Here they are.
They always seem to be kind of mutually exclusive situations – either you work full time or you freelance, but I do both. I won’t lie and say that its easy but I’ve definitely found a balance and a routine which gets me through it. I’ve needed a lot of motivation and ultimately I always put myself as number one – if I really don’t feel like writing after a long day at work then chances are that I won’t. But for the most part, in my spare time I will freelance – and its really becoming something I enjoy. Continue reading How I work 9-5 and freelance
I booked a spontaneous trip to Nuremberg last week, something I’ve wanted to do for a while but didn’t have the courage. I don’t really know what eventually made me click the ‘book’ button but I’m so glad I did. Continue reading 48 hours in Nuremberg
University really was a learning curve for me. A curve that meant my broke self would see £0 in my bank as an excuse to go on a night out because….it couldn’t any worse, right? Even the shame of my bank ringing me on a Saturday morning saying; “we think there has been fraudulent activity on your card” only to recite about 15 payments of £4.99 vodka lemonades made entirely by me didn’t stop me from being completely irresponsible with my money. Continue reading What I’ve learnt about money from my 21 years on earth
We’re all completely aware of the terrifying waste problem that is affecting our precious earth every single day, and although it might seem like we’re doing the most by signing online petitions to stop plastic straws, our planet needs us to do more.
So, this was like over a month ago but I’ve finally got round to posting about my amazing (short) trip to Utrecht and Amsterdam. Continue reading Utrecht and Amsterdam
