Time

Time is always a funny of thing, we always seem to be running out of it, making the most of it, wasting it or wishing it away. Very rarely are we left with a sense of ‘perfect time’ or a perfect amount of it. Time has always been an enigma, but 2020 seems to have played havoc with it in a way that I’ve never experienced before. (more…)

How I Pick Myself Up When I’m Feeling Low

Self confidence has been a battle for my whole life. I used to say that it’s only been since becoming a mother, but actually I’ve always struggled to feel confident in myself. When I was younger there was a big pressure to fit in with everyone else, to have the right clothes and go to the right places. I don’t think I ever quite grasped it, but I found a lot of confidence when I entered the working world. I liked earning my own money and providing for myself, I liked having the freedom to be who I wanted. I was finally away from the restrictions¬† and pressures of school, college or university.

Lockdown In Outfits With Femme Luxe

If I stay in lounge-wear all day I feel unproductive and am much more likely to sit on the sofa eating biscuits, but equally I want to be comfortable! It’s been so lovely to collaborate with Femme Luxe over the last few weeks and I’ve picked up some pieces which have been perfect for this time but that I am also excited to wear once lock down is over. So here are a few of my current favourite things from Femme Luxe and how I’ll be wearing them both in and out of lock down: (more…)

Finding The Positives

The situation we are currently in is undeniably horrendous on a global, national and personal level. I have to say that now because I don’t want anyone to think I’m trivialising any of this. (You can catch up on my mind dump from the other day by clicking here). I’m also well aware of how fortunate we are to be healthy and at home. However we all have bad days and one thing that is really keeping me going throughout this situation is finding some positives in it all. For me, for my family, and for how I hope life will be going forward. I want to write them down now so that I can look back on this list in the futures and remember that it wasn’t all bad, and so I can see if any of my hopes have been fulfilled. (more…)
