How to Change Your Life

Collaborative Contributed Post  A pandemic is the perfect time to sit back and evaluate what you want from life. Sure, being stuck inside in lockdown because of Covid-19 sucks, but it’s still a time for many where life has pressed pause, which means that if you want to make changes it’s now. It doesn’t matter what the change is that you want to make, do your best to see it...

Dressing Up During Lockdown

•Sponsored post, gifted items• 10 weeks of lockdown, hey? As the rules begin to relax a little here in the UK, I have still been spending the majority of my time at home in our back garden, working, playing with the kids, sunbathing and, if I’m being honest, recording TikToks (yep, I’m addicted). FemmeLuxe recently sent me across some pieces, which I featured in my post about finding my over thirties style,...

Trying out the Toneibox

•Gifted Item• Lockdown with three children, when both of you are still working from home, is at times pretty tough.

The Toniebox is an audio system created for children, which...

How I am Picking Myself Up After a Bad Mental Health Day

I won’t lie, I have been struggling more over the past week or so with my mental health. Since lockdown began, my mood has been generally better than I expected, but it will, without fail, dip every few days and I will have a day when I feel like the world is against me, where everything just feels ten times harder and it is difficult to smile. Those days are...

The Importance of Caring for Your Staff During Covid-19

I found myself compelled to write this post because I have seen how so many businesses have gone about things the wrong way when it comes to the current coronavirus pandemic. There are the businesses who panicked, jumped the gun and fired their staff before the government announced plans to help. There are those who acted selfishly, even when their own fortunes could have made such a difference to the...
