A Guide to Zero Waste

If you’ve been reading anything environmental at all in the past few years, I’m sure you’ve been made aware of the term “Zero Waste”. I’ve mentioned it previously in a couple of posts but have been asked to go a little more in-depth, helping you create a lifestyle less harmful to the environment. Be Aware […]

Relapse, Refocus and Refine

We all fail. Numerous times. We make bad decisions, sometimes unintentionally, other times fully aware. We get lazy, distracted, even bored. We wait for something big, like a milestone or a warning to occur before we try to refocus and come out of our relapse of bad habits. What is this for you? An addiction […]

I Dropped My iPhone AGAIN

Are you ready for a spoiled brat story? I hope so. No? Either way, please make yourself comfortable. I find huge value in my digital gadgets. Through different ways, each device helps me communicate and create. One of those gadgets is my much-loved iPhone. After about 8 months of owning it and keeping it in […]

Always Happy, Never Satisfied

Oh Hello! Here I am again. With a blog name change. The more I realise throughout each step of life, I evolve. My ideas evolve. What I quite like evolves into something I like less. My blog is one of minimalism, so the irony of looking for a simple blog name can feel somewhat overwhelming […]

MinsGame Progress

So I’m half way through my month of attempting the #MinsGame. Despite having previously cleared out most of what I feel wasn’t adding value to my life, I for some reason thought I’d be able to fly through this project with ease. It was easy at the start. I could take just a few minutes […]

A New Job

This week I started my new job! I wanted to give you a little more background to my experiences and reasons why I took on a new role. I’ve worked for a couple of different companies over the past five years as an in-house Graphic Designer. I am more than grateful for the opportunities I’ve […]

One Clear Room

As a self-confessed clean freak and clutterphobe, this evening I have had a bit of a eureka moment. After months and months of refining the items I allow to take up space in my home, after looking through the abyss of “under the bed” to collect more items for Day 5 of the MinsGame, I […]

MinsGame Expectations

Hello again guys! It’s all well and good me telling you that I’m joining in the #MinsGame and how you can play too, but I realised I didn’t tell you why I want to play it and why I think you might too! If you’ve already read some of my previous posts, you’ll know that […]

#MinsGame

This month I am going to be taking part in something called the MinsGame. It is where you throw away a total of 496 items per month. Sound drastic?! It’s pretty easy when you split it up into easy chunks each day.  On day one, you get rid of one item. On day two, you […]

Walking Through Mud

The past few days I feel like I have been stuck for inspiration and have had a bit of writers block. Times when this happens I can feel low because I begin to question of I am genuinely passionate about what I write. I think it’s best to have quality, rather than quantity at least […]

Autumnal Feelings

I love this time of year. Mother nature sheds her skin. Vibrant, golden leaves appear before falling to the ground, until all you are left with are the pure bones of beauty. We too can sense our deep-rooted desire to change. When we brave the outside world we protect ourselves with hard-wearing boots and thick […]

Feel Beautiful at Breakfast

Waking up in the morning isn’t easy, especially in the colder months. The fact that it is still dark is not fun. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could just stay in bed all cosy under a duvet and thick blankets. Sorry, this post isn’t going to make that happen but it will help ensure […]

The Taboo of Shame

I’ve read a fair few articles on anxiety. Even though they were informative and helpful in understanding why people feel anxious, I felt I was still missing something, but I couldn’t find the answer because I wasn’t sure what questions I needed to be asking. Today I found my answer. For some reason unknown even […]

“Staycation”

It’s April. You’ve just had that long weekend break you’d been itching for since Christmas. How is it over already?! You’re sat behind your desk in the office, finding it increasingly difficult to focus because, yes, you want to book your Summer holiday.  As it turned out for me, for various reasons I couldn’t book […]

Awake

Awake seems to be the most valid word right now for this very moment, and for this post. I’m awake. I’m awake because it’s daytime. I was awake because I was out until 2am at a school reunion. I am awake because my partner is still attending to a break-in at his work, he hasn’t […]

Powering Through Paperwork

It’s been a long time coming. The shelves were getting stuffed with letters and unopened mail. Notepads and payslips crammed in between. I’d been putting off sorting out all of our paperwork for months now and it was just getting ridiculous. When nothing more could fit on the shelves, we were piling it all onto […]

The Life-Changing Magic Of Not Getting S**tfaced Every Weekend

Life is full of lessons. If you want to fast-growing this process sometimes like I do, here’s an idea: experiment. Often, people mistake essential research exploring who we are and what works best for us (experiments), for “fads” or “just a phase”. They maybe think they’re right, due to the fact that some of these […]

Why I Deleted Social Media From My Mobile Device

Where do I even start with this one? Honestly, there are so many reasons I made this cute little leap in my anti-social adventure, but I’ll try my best to give you the main scoop about why it did it and how it will make your life soooo much better! The Obvious One – Distraction I […]

Cats, A Cuppa … and Random Chat.

Never thought I’d be sat in my living room listening to Enya, but there you go, it’s that kind of evening. It doesn’t even feel cheesy. I’ve had a headache all afternoon and had to nap, taking productivity or even just leisure time down to a big fat zero. Well I’m awake now and feel […]

Are You A Hoarder?

Are you a hoarder? A question that may look like it has a simple yes or no answer. Let me take you back to when I was about eight years of age… I was living in my much-adored childhood home. A horrible brown carpet surrounded by blue and yellow-striped wallpaper which sat below a wood-stained […]
