We have all come across those perpetual 'Negative Nancies', the people that manage to put a downer on even the most exciting of news! As you get older you start to filter these out of your friendship group, however, how do you deal with them in your family or as co-workers? This is something I have been trying to learn over my whole working life, and whilst I still find it hard to deal with toxic negative people, I wanted to share with you what I've learnt!
I decided to mix up my bullet journal this month, simplifying how it looks. I'm really pleased with the result, hope it works for me!
I'm always looking for ways to look after myself and try and keep my mental health in a good place. A great place to start, I found, was through restricting my social media time, in an attempt to be more present and to get a tad more sleep - something I'm in dire need of!
Have you switched to bars yet? They are hands down my favourite thing to use in the bathroom, they smell delicious, are stripped down of unnecessary chemicals and are better for the environment! I buy most of mine at a local shop who have recently opened up a website for anyone not close by - Portside Soap Company!
In my quest to cut out single use plastic in my bathroom, and to streamline my skincare into an easier routine, I have started making some of my own essentials. Whilst this may not be for everyone, it is a great place to start if you want to be more aware of what goes into your products.
I really struggled this month as I wasn't inspired at all, which is why it is being uploaded over a week into July :o. Once I had the butterfly inspiration though, it flowed quite well and I introduced some paper stock!
When I decided many years ago that I wasn't going to have children, their large footprint on the environment and the concern for over the future of our world were driving factors. Once our beautiful surprise decided to happen these concerns were at the forefront of my mind throughout the pregnancy. One thing I knew was that I was going to use cloth nappies! It has taken a year to get my butt in gear (mum life!) but we have finally made the switch and I couldn't be happier. In fact, I'm annoyed with myself for not doing it sooner as it was in no way a hassle and we have used so many disposables in that time!
Death in Paradise is a British-French crime show, which has as much humour as it does heart! Based on the fictional island in the Caribbean, Saint Marie, we follow the British police officer's as they make it their home.
It's just one of those days. Your back hurts, You're tired, He's tired... It's just one of those days.
