Even as we enter a new year, we always forget the importance of reflection. Of looking back and taking stock. Of admitting what we did, how we felt and what we want to change or improve on. Without this, we simply continue, content or not, until another week, month or year passes us by. Reflection...Read More
They say, don’t they, that a tidy house equals a tidy mind. There is certainly some truth in this, for the majority at least. It’s like anything, if one aspect of your life feels untidy and cluttered, it ripples into other aspects simultaneously. As the buzz of the festive season wares down and we come...Read More
Can’t commit, won’t commit Modern dating, is there anything more depressing or lonely? The logic behind it just doesn’t make any sense to me. We avoid relationships because we’re worried about bearing our souls. Of being vulnerable with someone, of expressing any real interest and yet we spend our days trawling dating apps, matching with...Read More
In an unexpected – and wholly welcomed – visit from my best friend last week who returned on a surprise whim from Cambodia for Christmas, it got me thinking about my New Years’ resolution post from last week. Discussing the benefits of setting yourself more positive goals as opposed to the generic ones we see...Read More
So here we are. Another year has been and gone.Although reflections and resolutions can be made at any time – why not the 1st July for example? – there is something about January.

With my boyfriend’s birthday fast approaching always comes the obligatory line – ‘Oh, don’t worry about getting me anything’, quickly followed by my mandatory response – ‘Don’t be silly, of course I want to buy you something.’ The trouble is, I do always struggle with what to buy him. He is not a material guy...Read More
When we’re in times of worry, stress, contemplation or indecision, we often find it difficult to find a balance. One that helps us to relax and restore, taking us back to a place where we feel happy and content. When we are struck down with one or more of these feelings then, how do we...Read More
We tend to hear a lot about the effects of clutter and having too many ‘things’. How having a crowded space can lead to a crowded and cluttered mind. That adopting a more minimalist lifestyle can offer a wealth of benefits, both in mind and space. It makes sense, doesn’t it, that if we live...Read More
There seems little else to do on a rainy Sunday afternoon except to get cosy, drink copious amounts of tea and watch a film. That is exactly what I did and the film choice, Goodbye Christopher Robin, was an utterly brilliant one. So much so in fact, that it is one of those films that...Read More
