Operation Declutter

Operation Declutter

  I’m decluttering. Properly. I’m writing this post after week one of what I’m calling ‘Operation Declutter’. Those of you who know the real me will know that this isn’t something I’m doing lightly. Clutter has genuinely become a real problem in my life. I realised, since I came back from my holiday the other …

NE 2 Ibiza

  I’m meant to be heading out to Spain in March for one of my good friends’ weddings. I’m really excited about this, not just because I get to see her get married, but also because I haven’t actually left the UK in over four years. The last holiday I had was to the incredible …

Somewhat embarrassingly, I’ve realised that I’m slowly becoming a victim of vanity. I’m getting older, and while I’m not exactly ready for the scrapheap just yet, …

Short Fuse

Short Fuse

Maybe this is a short girl thing. Maybe it’s an age thing. Maybe it’s just me. My fuse is getting shorter. Increasingly so. Historically speaking, I’ve always been a fairly easygoing type when it comes to other people. With myself, that’s another story, but with other people, I would rarely snap, bite or give them …

Fit: Destination Unknown

Fit. It’s a word thrown about almost constantly. The ultimate destination on the journey to ‘your best self’, and all that. Fit is something I’ve never been, but something that had to become a priority in recent times. Here’s why. Earlier this year, I decided I was going to try and sort my health out …
