    Finding Purpose In Our Pain

    I hadn’t planned to write another blog post right now like this. I am sorry if you are reading this and it runs a little deeper than the content you may want or expect right now, but stick with me because I hope to inspire you with this special thought.

    Meet Me At The Cherry Blossom Tree

    ‘Are you kidding me, Sir?’ Enraged at the airline representative calling to deliver the bad news. ‘Why won’t you let me on this plane, I need to get home for my sister’s wedding dress appointment,’ I’d never really been this late home before.

    Self-Care Habits To Maintain in 2020

    We are now six months into lockdown in the UK and it’s been a whirlwind of all kinds of emotions. Working in social media, managing my online business, and navigating the edit and new challenge to write more have kept me going whilst lockdown at home. As much as I do love all of those things and more, I’ve also recently been reminded of the importance of taking time to rest. The kind of rest I’m talking about doesn’t just mean stop and do nothing, but sleep is a good habit and part of what that looks like for me. I’m talking about self-care and making time for the passions…

    Why it’s ok to be different

    I wrote this blog in April, and I never published it. I don’t know why, but I wanted to share this with you now. I have never been more inspired than how I feel right now. It’s Saturday, it’s sunny, and I have a lot to be grateful for. I’ve spent most of the working on my latest project, The Perfect Fit. I’m hoping to work with one of the agents I’ve reached out to, but if they feel it’s not for them, then I’m gearing up to go direct and share my novel with you, the reader. I’ve never been more excited about the novel as I am now.…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    Hope for the New Year

    So I’m sitting job Starbucks listening to the Michael Buble or Chris Martin singing ‘have yourself a merry little Christmas’ with my toffee but latte, Nora Ephron book “I feel bad about my neck” and some free coffee capsules for an espresso machine I don’t have yet. Still, I speak it into reality and when I do have one I have capsules ready to go! It’s New Year’s Eve and as I look up from my red cup to see girls studying, I’m surrounded by friends gathering and individuals engrossed in their laptops and books. As I stare at the Chinese girl across from me with a full spread of water…
