Everything I'd Love This Christmas

It’s been a very long time since I did a gift guide. But something I wanted to do this year is share all the gifts I’d love to receive in a dream world (basically, the items I’m going to save up for myself over time) and then all the items that I’d love to receive that would support a small business or a charity. I find this time of year generally overwhelming when it comes to buying gifts as it puts so much financial pressure on us and way too often we feel like we can’t say no to what our loved ones might like. Gifts are nice but they’re not the only way to show somebody that you care for them, without a doubt the most important thing that we can give anybody at this time of year is our company.

Everywhere To Explore In Nottinghamshire

Having lived in the Nottinghamshire area my entire life (apart from a brief stint in Cheltenham for university) there are so many spots that I’ve discovered and are places that I find myself visiting weekly now I have two hounds to keep entertained. Whilst are a plethora of walks on our doorstep there is a distinct lack of dog-friendly cafes in the city which is a real shame so we tend to stick to the countryside when exploring. Although there are a couple of noteworthy places to go in the city to grab a gram worthy donut or veggie burger and of course, the Christmas market at this time of year is always worth a visit.

The Best Shades To Have All Year Round

Usually, at this time of the year, there are a plethora of blog posts out there sharing all the best festive shades to slick on. And in the past, I’ve written those posts and switched up my makeup routine accordingly and even though granted I will reach for berries over peaches there are a certain few shades that I think are brilliant all year round. If you’re only interested in having a capsule makeup bag like so many of us are these days then these are shades I truly believe will work for most and are the true staples in my beauty routine as they're so timeless.

Coping Mentally With The Colder Months

Anybody who has happened across this part of the internet might know that for a long time, I seriously hated A/W and it was a time of year where my mental health plummeted. But for the first time, I think maybe ever I’ve somewhat looked forward to the colder months. Last year I started to make a serious change and there are so many factors to take into account when it comes to how you feel in a certain season and here is how I try and keep on top of my mind when the colder months roll around.

What Do When You Feel Like Your Creative Flame Has Seriously Burnt Out

Anybody in a creative field will be all too aware of the dreaded burnout and the fear that goes alongside it. We’ve all probably experienced it at some point where we feel like we’ve created every single thing we can think of and have no idea how we could possibly dream up anything else. It’s something that I know I end up going through every few months and naturally, I always get through it but at the time it feels like my little online world is imploding and I’ll never be able to do anything good again. So just in case you’re currently going through a little lull, here is everything to get that creative fire burning once again.

Why I Don't Work 9-5 & Why It's A Good Thing

Did you know the standard working hours of 9-5 date back to the eighteenth century? They’re the hours that the vast majority of the country work but more than ever companies are introducing more flexible working hours and giving their employees the option to work from home, which is brilliant. And ever since I’ve worked from home I’ve tried so many different ways of working but something that I’ve always worried about is that if I’m not working 9-5 then am I working hard enough? And the answer is obviously yes and here is why I’m finally comfortable in not working a strict 8 hours and why I don’t think there should be so much guilt surrounding it.

How To Fall In Love With Instagram & Craft Your Own Community

2018 marks the year I seriously fell out of love with Instagram. My constant decline in followers has knocked my confidence so much and as much as I wish it wasn’t the case it is, and I know it’s not something I'm alone in feeling. And it’s taken me months and months to feel like I could happily go on the platform and use it the way I used to, whilst I realise these statements might sound a little dramatic they’re sadly true. In around September, I decided enough was enough and I’d go back to basics, try and stay away from the numbers as much as I could as and it’s made me fall back in love with those squares and this is what I’ve done.

Everything To Purchase For Your Hound This Season

Typically a post like this would live over on The Adventures of Josie & Edie but as I don’t plan on any gift guides apart from this one and maybe one celebrating small business it felt right to hit publish over here. By this point, we’re all well aware that I’m utterly obsessed with my sighthounds Josie & Edie. And subsequently something I’m very passionate about it good houndwear in general. As the festive season is edging closer and closer than that means only one thing, a purchase for your pet must be made and here are some things that are on my list. All of these stores and services are small businesses which I’m excited to be able to support this season, as there is nothing better than seeing where your money goes.

The New Daily Habits I'm Trying To Master

As we’re slowly approaching new years resolution time I thought I’d get ahead of the game and try and take a serious look at my daily habits. Some of them are pretty great if I do say so myself but some, well some are pretty questionable and I want to change that. Weirdly, one of my favourite topics of conversation is the little things that everyone does daily as you never know what might work for you and your lifestyle. And this is everything that I'm trying to work on at the moment...
