In fact, I can go as far as

Be Kind, Be Happy, Read More and Drink More – Water!

Am I the only person who thinks it’s super weird how the chime of Big Ben signifying midnight (aka the New Year) turns us all into absolute crazies!? Before the Chimes, and, I have to say, the amazing fireworks (exactly how much did they cost?), I was the happy me. Now post chimes, I’m the new and improved happy me. Well, not exactly but hopefully you can see where I

Don’t let print die!

Since the creation or rise of online magazine/sites and e-readers, printed materials (physical books, magazines, etc.) have seen a large decrease in sales. I’m all for progress, and in the society that we live in today, accessing information online is so easy. One can say that it is the most efficient way of being up to date with current news as it is happening, but there is something about this

My four favourite Summer to Autumn items

It’s been awhile, in fact, it’s been exactly a month!

Sleep – How to Nail That Bedtime Routine

Sleep – the universal activity that all humans need to survive; an essential activity to rest and recoup the body and mind. With the average adult recommended to get between 7 to 8 hours of restful sleep per night, for a poor sleeper like me, this requires a lot of commitment in a carefully timed pre-bedtime routine! If this scenario sounds familiar to you, or you’re also a poor sleeper/insomniac,

There is nothing more indulgent than sitting in bed with a hot cup of tea or coffee, surrounded by papers, magazines and books – simply the perfect lazy Sunday morning followed by some brunch. So, in case you’re looking for some reading inspiration, below are some of the books that have turned me into a bit of a book worm this past month. The Girl Before by J P Delaney

Looking back on year three – Happy Blogiversary to me!

Blue Monday? Or not so Blue Monday?

Good Morning and welcome to Blue Monday! If your waking up in the UK/ Northern Hemisphere you will know that today has been dubbed as officially the worst day of the the year, who can blame anyone for thinking that?  It’s grey and wet outside, the post Christmas bills are coming in and thats without factoring in the humanitarian crisis’s and political madness that are going on. I for one

It’s all about the next best thriller!

Ive become a bit addicted to thrillers! Nothing too scary, mind you, but since reading both the popular titles, Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, and The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins, my Chick Lit obsession has taken a slight backseat.  And what perfect timing than jetting off to a sun bed somewhere where the sun is shining to get my next thriller fix! Here’s what’s on my current reading list. The

The One Sentence A Day Meaningfulness Journal

I never thought that I would be the type of person to have a meaningfulness journal! But then, what type of person is that right? I have no idea! I guess I AM that type of person. Towards the end of last year, my life was crazy. I was working full time, attending events, writing my blog (like it was my full time focus) and socialising. If you asked me
