It's been 6 months since my last post. Well done, Lizzi. Good work, fantastic regular blogging, round of applause! Somehow, we sailed through 2015 and seem to have landed at the end of January 2016. I've had 6 months of ideas float into my head...and then vanish again before I have a chance to put … Continue reading Resolutions.
I'm writing this from my seat on a flight to Copenhagen just as we are preparing for take off. It's that "turn your flight safe mode on" time - and the start of an hour and a half of enforced disconnection from the outside world. And this always gets me thinking of how peaceful it … Continue reading Disconnecting
Enjoying the gym?!
It's been a while since I posted an update about my attempt to go sugar free, so I thought it was about time! I still haven't bought a bar of chocolate for myself, which I'm feeling very positive about. Other sweet things...well, that hasn't gone quite as well, but I'm working on that! I don't … Continue reading Enjoying the gym?!
On Solo Travel – A Trip to Berlin
I've spent the past couple of years talking about how I should travel more - see the world a little bit (other than my annual trip to Cyprus with my parents). The problem has always been who to travel with - I've always been slightly nervous of travelling alone. Travelling with friends always creates it's … Continue reading On Solo Travel – A Trip to Berlin
Mini Sephora haul/review
Uhoh, I'm straying into beauty posts.... I recently went to Italy (blog post about that coming soon!) and stumbled across an old favourite of mine - Sephora. They closed all their UK branches a fair few years ago (booooo!) and I haven't been in one since! I managed not to spend too much, but here's … Continue reading Mini Sephora haul/review
On Body Confidence
In the last couple of years, there's been a big increase in the number of articles and posts I've seen about body confidence....and before I go any further, I just want to make it clear that this is A Very Good Thing. Of course we should be promoting body confidence, and of course we should … Continue reading On Body Confidence
Going Sugar Free
There have been coutless articles which proclaim that chocolate is "more addictive than cocaine" or other similar statements. And whilst I can't confirm whether that's true or not, I do know one thing. Sugar's damn addictive, and I need to STAY AWAY.
Taking a moment. (TW: mental health issues)
Oh my goodness. In the grand scheme of twitter, 700+ retweets isn't that many. In the grand scheme of my twitter...that's pretty bloomin' viral.
January & February throwback
Back on New Year's Eve, I posted about my lack of New Year's Resolutions - apart from that the resolution to keep track of everything that I"m proud of, month by month so that I can look back on it at the end of 2015. Some bloggers write "monthly favourites" posts - this is my take on it.
The thing about life is that with every passing day, week, month and year, you can accumulate knowledge and experiences that pave the way to where you end up next. The only problem is the people you meet and the things you see can easily lead you to wondering if could have turned out a … Continue reading On regrets.
