What My Workday Looks Like Right Now

I’m in a good rhythm with work at the moment, my day to day tasks change obviously but the general routine I’m in is the same which I love because I thrive when I’m in a good routine that allows a little bit of time for everything. Whenever I see posts like from fellow freelancers I’m always interested to see what their workday looks like as we all work to a different rhythm which is awesome. One of the best things about working for yourself is finding what quite literally works for you and this is what I’ve found is the best for me when it comes to how I work.

My Favourite Books That Have Helped My Mental Health

For me, when it comes to learning more about not only my own mental health struggles with the subject as a whole I like to take my comfort from books. The online space is of course, wonderful and there are so many awesome people sharing their story which has been incredibly helpful in raising awareness and I know I wouldn’t feel so safe talking about my struggles online if it weren't for those people. But I take so much solace in books and these are all the books that I’ve learnt so much from in the past few years.

The Shopping Diaries: June & July

I wrote my first instalment of the shopping diaries back in May time and it seemed to go down really well so I thought I’d share another as I’ve made a few purchases over the last couple of months. I’ve never been one to share hauls as sometimes sharing things for sharings sake can feel a little pointless for me. But, what I love about these posts is that I can explain a little more about the purchases that I’ve been making as well as a few thoughts on the item themselves just incase they're also something you're interested in.

The Areas Of My Life Where I'm Trying To Be More Sustainable

There are parts my lives I feel I’m doing really well in terms of sustainability but there are others where I’m falling behind a little. I know there is a huge buzz around being eco-friendly at the moment (which is great as it's incredibly important) but it can lead to people not feeling like they’re doing enough or perfect but I’m not sure that is something that exists when it comes to being kinder to our planet. Despite what some might say small changes do make a big difference and if all make the small changes that are feasible to us then that’s when big changes will happen and these are all the areas that I’m trying to make a change with right now.

Why It's So Important To Protect Your Mental Health Online

When I began my blogging journey 8 years ago I never imagined that it would have a negative effect on my mental health. It was such a positive and joyous place to share my thoughts on whatever I was loving at the time and it’s not until recent years have I realised how important it is to protect your mental health online whether you’re a content creator or someone who consumes online content. You can’t move for posts and articles all about how the online world is so damaging for our self-esteem but what those posts always forget to mention is how much good the internet can do for people. I know there are certainly things that I struggle with but there are plenty more that I have to be grateful for and this is how I protect my mental health online.

Your Weekend Reading, Watch & Listen List #10

last time I wrote one of these posts we were having torrential rain every single day in the UK and now when I’m writing this it’s a nice 22 degrees, you know us Brits can’t help ourselves but discuss the weather at any chance we can. And even though the constant rain certainly put a dampener on my mood something it has been amazing for is all the wildflowers. I’ve never known dog walks to be so luscious and green as they are right now. I’ll spare you any more weather chat and here is what I’ve been watching, reading and listening to in the past couple of weeks.

My Most Loved Gym Essentials Right Now

-this post contains PR samples-

I’ve been a regular gym frequenter for a few months now after taking a couple of years break and I’ve finally fallen back into a good routine with it. I’m quite particular with what I use and wear to the gym and I’m always so interested in what other people use to make their workouts even better as it’s something that is so personal. As of right now, my main focus is on running and light weights so it’s nothing too out there and this is what works for me and my workouts.

The Best Nail Polishes To Wear This Summer

-this post contains PR samples-

Having a freshly done manicure is something that makes me feel ready to take on the world. It doesn’t matter if I don’t have a scrap of makeup on and my hair resembles a birds nest, as long as I’ve got that manicure I instantly feel more put together and polished. Ever since I was a teenager I’ve always got so much joy from painting on different colours and it’s no different now I’m the grand old age of twenty-nine. There is some real stand out shades in my collection at the moment and these are the details on them.
