If you are anything like me, then you like to have your watercolour paints with you whenever you might suddenly need to paint a sketch on the go.  I find a lot of the ready-made palettes are either too big or just have a lot of additional fluff that I don’t want or need. Especially as the intention is to use it as a travel watercolour palette.

5 Steps to Clearing Money Blocks

Clearing Money Blocks

I know that clearing money blocks is generally about the law of attraction. However, I feel like magic happens when you combine mindset change with positive action. I think my story demonstrates this rather well so let me tell you whilst I go through the steps.  I was someone who went through life barely thinking about money, except to panic. It wasn’t until I read Paulette Perhach’s “Story of a Fuck Off Fund” on 22nd January 2016 that I had the realisation that I was in a really dreadful place with money and really began to look at my money …

Christmas Gratitude!

Christmas Tree

This year has bought with it so many good things for me. I just want to take a moment to give thanks with a little Christmas gratitude list! In mid 2018, I had been on a bit of a bumpy road and was feeling rather pessimistic about the things I had always dreamed of coming true. At the end of the year, unexpectedly, my now beardy boyfriend popped up in my life. First as a friend, but pretty quickly becoming more. It’s been one hell of a year together and I have definitely found my lobster! So that is the …

Self-Care Checklist

Self-Care Checklist

If you are anything like me and appreciate a list to guide you when completing tasks, you’ll love this Self-Care Checklist.  Why you need a self-care plan?  What’s that old saying? “Fail to plan, plan to fail”. This is especially true when it comes to self-care activities.  It is pitifully easy to let areas of your routine slip when life vamps up. Who needs sleep, when you have this big project at work due? Daylight? What is that!? This one is particularly jarring to me right now since they put privacy screens on the windows at work so now I …

Benefits of Self-Care

Benefits of Self-Care

I’m going to talk to you about the benefits of self-care. Everyone is talking about it lately and undoubtedly saying that you should be doing it. Yet, if you are anything like me you are probably massively over complicating things. When people spoke to me about self-care, my brain immediately added a level of complexity to the proceedings. Surely it couldn’t just be a word that covers how to take care of yourself? There had to be more to it, right? Wrong. So what is self-care? Simply, it is when you take time for yourself. Not even that really. If …
