THE LIFESTYLE EDITION: WANDERLUST AND WHY IT DOESN’T APPEAL TO ME

Someone recently said to me if you stay in the same place you’ll never grow. Whilst attempting to be as open minded as I could with that, I couldn’t help but feel offended (and boy, did they know it). I tried not to overreact, I promise! It bugged me so much. What a naive thing to say. What’s so wrong in loving where you have lived your whole life? It’s not like I don’t leave the house, go on holidays or live my life to the full. I just choose to build my life where I feel comfortable, in a place that I know and love that…

THE LIFESTYLE EDITION: THE UNI CHAT

There are some ‘what if’ moments in life that I seem unable to shrug off more than others. What if I went to uni? This question lurks in the back of my mind more often than not. Unfortunately, it’s just one of those questions that I won’t ever have closure for. I don’t know the answers, the outcome, how it would have changed my life, if at all. Ten years ago a decision not to take that big ol’ plunge into uni life was frowned upon. Unlike now where apprenticeships, gap years, volunteering and travelling are all thrown on the table with big open arms. For me to…

THE LIFESTYLE EDITION: FIVE REALISTIC RESOLUTIONS

The clue is in the title! I’m going for realistic resolutions this year. I have said before that I’m a little uneasy when it comes to resolutions, the idea that we should change ourselves doesn’t sit well with me. I prefer the words; grow, develop, progress, learn. I recently made an ode to appreciating small gestures in 2018, which if you haven’t already read then you can do here and it ties in quite nicely with this follow up post. Life is fucking tough sometimes. So, I’m stripping it back for this one, leaving out the usual witty one liners and getting stuck straight into the resolutions,…

THE LIFESTYLE EDITION: HAS OUR GENERATION KILLED ROMANCE?

This blog post comes from my usual late night Sauvignon Blanc thoughts, a heart to heart if you like, or so it may seem. This post calls for some serious reflection. For me to confidently go full speed ahead into 2018 and tick off what’s left on the list, I think I really need to get a few things off my chest. Those things, being in relation to relationships, or the lack of them in my case! ‘THE ONLY PEOPLE UP AT 3am ARE IN LOVE, LONELY, DRUNK OR ALL THREE’ Give me any topic to talk about and off I go, easily,  but when it comes to talking about…

THE LIFESTYLE EDITION: 2018 AND MAKING SMALL GESTURES COUNT

It’s Christmas, the most wonderful time of the year and I’m physically and emotionally knackered. Not quite the blog post full of festive cheer you were more than likely expecting. Ever the realist. Don’t worry, I’m writing this with a glass of fizz in my hand, as appropriate as ever. I’ve always been your ‘live life to the full’ kinda gal, an outgoing, full speed ahead, intense, passionate extrovert. I don’t know how to stop and I don’t know how to say no. I’ve been off work since the 14th December doing all the usual build-up festivities such as shopping, socialising, gatherings, lunches, brunches, you know the…
