Wellbeing in the Workplace
A new year is here and everyone seems to be on the January bandwagon - Veganuary, no-meat Monday's and of course, the gyms are raking it in with new membership sign-ups! This is a great opportunity for us and will make a huge difference in people's personal wellbeing, making them feel better both physically and mentally for so many reasons. But alongside healthier cooking at home and all those miles on the treadmill, we still really need to consider our wellbeing in the workplace.

How do I become a gym bunny?
It has recently occurred to me that, although I am yet to turn 25, my body and I are not getting any younger. It’s time to start taking care of myself, and said body, for real this time. And by take care of myself, I don’t mean treat myself to whatever I want food or clothing wise, or to have a pamper night with (insert last months masks) once a week - because I do that anyway.

Friendships and the Millennial Mum

Being a new mum can be an incredibly daunting time – not only have you got this new bundle of joy to keep alive, you feel overwhelmed, your life no longer resembles anything you have experienced before and you are so, so exhausted. You are awake in the deepest depths of the night, a zombie in the day, you feel your house is a mess and your life revolves around an endless cycle of feeding, naps, laundry – it can feel like you are just trying to stay afloat. Don't worry - that's normal. ...

Antioxidants – Why you need them and how to get more

To say the world of nutrition is confusing is a bit of an understatement.  The sheer quantity of disease-fighting superfoods and life-changing diets has got out of hand (in my opinion).  We not only have too much choice but a whole host of conflicting advice.  This can add pressure to our already over-worked brains, and it’s all too easy to lose motivation (if we don’t see results by the end of January) and resort to old habits....

Getting the Perfect Brow in 2020

Brows are, in my opinion, the most important thing on your face. They shape and frame your eyes and, let’s face it, bad brows can make a BIG difference; I would know… I over-plucked mine in the ‘90s when I was at school, the time when it was ‘cool’ to have super slim, line brows. Since then, all I’ve done is try to get fat, fluffy, gorgeous brows. I’ve tried pretty much every hack, tool, tip and trick, so I thought I’d pass on what I’ve learnt to help you get fluffy brows for 2020....

Beauty Recycling: How to get involved

We've all been there - at the bottom of our favourite lipstick or the pan of our beloved bronzer, unsure what to do with the empty product. Whilst the beauty industry is increasingly promoting sustainability and recycling by developing eco-friendly products and packaging, it’s likely the majority of us are still just throwing empties in the bin totally unsure of the consequences....

Coping with Seasonal Affective Disorder

Ahhh Winter, something that comes around every single year and yet somehow I underestimate each time just how badly it affects me. As soon as the hours of daylight per day start to fall in October it hits me. I think Winter affects a lot of people in different ways. Many feel a bit more lethargic etc but when it truly impacts on your mental and physical health you know about it! And it can be hard to explain to other people who don’t suffer the same. Seasonal Affective Disorder is definitely something that I suffer with during the winter....

10 Ways Motherhood Changed Me

Aa I look in the mirror I see a person staring back at me, who is different to the person I was before.

I've given bitch twice and raised two humans, it feels like I'm ready to take on the world! Nothing is standing in my way - this new person is a mother....

How to Embrace Your 1920s Self

Mine is a familiar story. Woman in the 2020s has a plethora of demands on her, yet thinks she has it all under control. Turns out she doesn’t have it under control whatsoever, and so lies awake at night in a mild panic. Eventually plays sleep story via a meditation app to quell the impending to-do-list doom. Woman enjoys sleep story set in the 1920s so much that she heads out the next morning, buys a time machine, and waves goodbye to her 2020 cares. Bliss....

A productive start to the year

Let's be honest, going back to work in January isn't fun. In fact, unless you were smart enough to book a winter holiday, or you have a significant celebratory event that changes the rules (birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, house moves and new babies all qualify), January itself doesn't generally instil us with excitement. We had a year's supply of that last month...

Images of frothy artisanal coffee next to a well-poised laptop and book had me cracking out the multi-coloured friendship bracelet thread....

The Good Life: Learning To Live Again

It was three years ago. I was completely fucked. In and out of hospital, barely able to haul my petrified body out of bed. Diagnoses of leptospirosis, post viral syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome, postural hypotension, sensory intolerance, multiple food intolerances, oesophagitis, gastritis, peripheral neuropathy, neurological damage, histamine intolerance, anxiety, and ‘tropical disease unspecified’ attached themselves to my identity with more velocity than getting five different colours permanently streaked through my hair and buying baggy ripped jeans did when I was seventeen—who was I now? A medical anomaly. A sick person. Fucked....

Date Night on a Budget

Hey Angels, here is another 'money saving tips' post. I wanted to give you some idea on how to do date night on a budget, reflecting on how my husband and I like to do things. With Valentine's Day just around the corner, meals out can be expensive! Not everyone is happy to pay £80+ for a fancy 2-course meal. We experienced it once and thought, nope, never again. We're the type of people who skip dessert and grab a McFlurry on the way home!...
