How to Dress for your Body Shape {Bum, Belly and Boobs}

Unsurprisingly my body has been through many changes in my 37 years on this planet.

Our bodies are incredible and to a extent I’ve come toContinue reading “How to Dress for your Body Shape {Bum, Belly and Boobs}”

80:20 Rule {Intuition vs. Consistency}

“Which Chipmunk are you?” This was the question posed by Sarah Knight from the No F*cks Given podcast as I ironed a million pieces of school uniform.

All or Nothing Personality | {The Perfectionist}

Something I’ve been thinking about as part of my 30 days of personal development is my tendency to be very all or nothing.

New year {same me}

Happy New Year! 2021 – the year that HAS to be better than 2020 right?! Yet here we are. Still feeling confused and unsure of what the future holds. Back in lockdown and home learning/working/childcare-ing. Another new normal. Who took down their Christmas decorations before the New Year? I’m usually desperate to clear the ChristmasContinue reading “New year {same me}”

Saturday night {musings} / Body {respect}

There’s a lot going on in my mind at the moment so I’m going to write it all down. I’m not feeling well.  I’m exhausted and overwhelmed.  Unhealthy and mentally drained.  I broke down crying tonight because it was just all too much.  The kids.  The house.  The noise.  The mess.  Work.  My weight.  UnfinishedContinue reading “Saturday night {musings} / Body {respect}”
