    One month in self isolation

    It’s Easter weekend in the UK and 24 degrees outside. The sun is splitting and the magnolia type trees in my area have sprung with life overnight. I’m in the middle of going back through my novel The Perfect Fit for one last time. It’s become my weekend routine. If you follow me on Tik Tok, you’ll know. I completed this novel years ago, but there were a few editing bumps along the way. I have to say that my experience of birthing this novel has been a longer journey than the 7 months it took to write. This week I published episode three of Weekly Lee. I’ve been at…

    Monday Round Up From Self Isolation

    It’s officially week 3 in self-isolation and I can tell from social media and my own experience that after a few weeks of being home we are in some way, at some point, craving a little bit of normal life. I’m craving spring and summer too, but needs must. Last week in between working and cleaning, I created a little vlog that I am now launching as Weekly Lee. If you missed that here’s episode one. I’d love to hear your feedback and what you liked about it. If you haven’t already please subscribe so you can get more of my inspirational content around life, leadership, travel, writing, and more.…

    Life Update: New Year, New Beginnings

    Happy New Year! Can you believe we are two weeks into 2020 already? It’s been a whirlwind from christmas shopping to buzzing around running running christmas markets with Frame Your World, and taking up opportunities in London and speaking opportunities in Oxford. LIFE UPDATE I am still working on filling out the reflect part of my new 2020 bullet journal, and working to build in some exciting goals for me to form habits around this year. This is something I’ll share a lot more of in the future weeks and months as my new self care plan unfolds. MY PLAN FOR THIS BLOG I have so many platforms and channels…

    What to do when life hands you lemons?

    If my life was a quote, then this would sum up my day and week. Do you ever get those weeks where it feels like you’re been hit with one obstacle after another? I’m sure you do! For me, this week, was exactly like that. I’ve cried and crumbled for a moment with anxiety until I realised that it’s time for me to get on my feet and fight back. Not in the literal sense, but internally I decided to stand firm regardless of the circumstances that were facing me. We can’t always control what happens to us, but we can choose how we respond.   On that note, I’m…

    Wild horses and beach huts

    This weekend I achieved an unwritten goal by exploring Bournemouth beach and taking a long-awaited picture of their famous beach huts. I was a magical adventure that I didn’t anticipate. I mean... who knew we had thousands of wild horses running around the UK? I didn’t. The day started with a good old trip to Starbucks.

    Embrace your grace

    I now believe the more comfortable we are with ourselves. The happier we will be. It’s time to stop beating ourselves up for what we did or did not do, for what we have or do not have. What would happen if you decided to stop comparing yourself today, if you decided to give your own inner voice an actual place on the stage of your life, and allowed yourself to enjoy where you are on the way to where you are going? “It’s still magic even if you know how it’s done.” Terry Pratchett When I wrote this post before work this morning, I didn’t expect that we would…

    All the right words, in all the wrong places

    Can we open our eyes? We talk about being more authentic, our mental health and being able to talk to each other, and the importance of community, but I’ve noticed that we can be just as judgmental about who we share a smile with – especially when the person seems different than our norm. It still feels a little selfish to me… and don’t get me wrong, I’m talking about everyone else. I’m far from perfect here too, but I am challenging myself with this thought too. We are getting better at talking about the things we need to talk about but sometimes too good. I just wonder how many…

    How to chase your dreams

    It’s been a minute since I last wrote a post for this site. Truth be told… this isn’t really a post. I’m currently writing because I want to fight against the ants in my pants (not literally, of course) and do what I know I’m gifted to do. Yes, sounds a bit arrogant, but it’s not. I have tossed and turned over ideas, thoughts, and what to share and not share across my social media platforms.  I work in social media, so part of the fun is for me to create, generate ideas, and help promote a product. However, I built this website as a place to mold and shape…

    International Museum Day

    “I dislike museum’s with a passion.” At least that’s what I use to think when someone mentioned going to a museum. I was the girl who fell asleep in history… 5 times. I don’t mind going into a museum, but I will most likely cover the whole building in under 20 minutes, in one swift swoop. I have to say they are growing on me a little over the years and to be honest when this latest trip to the Oxford’s Natural History Museum was brought up I was pretty much sold on the concept of seeing dinosaur bones. I saw it as an inspirational trip and research for my…

    Easter Monday treats and beats

    Nothing like working to some upbeat music. Today I am reflecting on some awesome beats and treats from yesterday, whilst getting ready for the day. My images wouldn’t upload yesterday, hence the delay in publishing this post. And I couldn’t resist throwing in a few more. There was something about this view of Oxford town centre yesterday that just made me stop. I think it was the light breaking through the clouds, and bouncing of people’s head. There’s definitely a message in that, but for now let’s appreciate this beautiful view. Music today has to be Leah McFall – whilst I know she has recently released her EP. I’m still…
