It’s time to say goodbye to self doubt (because it’s making me completely fucking useless)

It took me a grand total of 57 minutes to reply to an email the other day. Fifty seven. Nearly an hour. The word count of said email? Also 57, if you exclude the greeting, pleasantries and sign off, which I will because I can and it works better for what I’m about to say.… Continue reading It’s time to say goodbye to self doubt (because it’s making me completely fucking useless)

Three unfortunate clothes shopping habits I’m trying to bin

The way that the topic for this blog post came into my head is kind of embarrassing, but let's roll with it. Today I spent probably two of my fully dressed hours pulling my culottes out of my arse (how’s that for TMI?), where they seemed determined to reside for the majority of the day.… Continue reading Three unfortunate clothes shopping habits I’m trying to bin

I’m trying to appreciate little things more so here’s a handful of stuff I’m going to stop and enjoy this spring

Happy April one and all. I don’t know how the fourth month of 2018 managed to arrive already, but here we are, 3 months and a horrible number of centimetres of rain down. It’s been a pretty good year so far, but when I think back, I’m surprised to find that I don’t actually remember… Continue reading I’m trying to appreciate little things more so here’s a handful of stuff I’m going to stop and enjoy this spring

On finally learning to enjoy learning

I haven't really enjoyed the process of learning for years. The book character that I was probably most compared to as a child was - classic noughties cliché alert - Hermione Granger. Not for having bushy hair (it’s always been fine and flat) or for being badass (I was a hopelessly wimpy), but for being… Continue reading On finally learning to enjoy learning

I hopped aboard the suit trend and it made me feel seriously sassy

This is a sponsored post in collaboration with intu Chapelfield “What’s the most *extra* item I can possibly find?” I thought, when deciding what I wanted to style for intu Chapelfield’s S/S 2018 Blogger Challenge. I assume that was the thought process anyway, since this is the result - and also since the shopping trip… Continue reading I hopped aboard the suit trend and it made me feel seriously sassy

A vow to find pockets of calm in a constantly busy world

If someone asked me to name a feeling that I don’t feel as often as I would like (I don’t know why someone would ask me that, but humour me here), I would probably say ‘calm’. In part, that’s a personal thing. I like being busy, I can’t relax when there are still things to… Continue reading A vow to find pockets of calm in a constantly busy world
