  When we say self-love and self-care, these ideas encompass a range of things; for some its a nice hot bath with a luxury bath bomb. For others its a Sunday afternoon roast with a large glass of red. Maybe its shutting your bedroom door and not leaving all day until you’ve finished the book you downloaded that morning.

January is a pretty easy month to stay on track isn’t it? No one’s drinking, everyone’s rushing out to get their gym discounts, where they’ll dedicate more hours to the gym than they did for the prior year, and everyone is so focussed on the “New Year New Me” trope, that its easy to turn down social engagements, to turn up at a friends house with a box of tea bags rather than a bottle of wine or to opt for a banana rather than a Big Tasty… My weight and body image is something I struggle with constantly. I absolutely cannot stand when other people take photos of me. I can’t tell you the stress I feel at social engagements – from family Christmas to nights out with friends, knowing that someones going to be taking photos, posting them on various social media or our family photo stream and the fact…

I’ve decided that this year, my mantra is I Trust The Timing of My Life. It’s totally helping me to feel less anxious about the things I can’t control, and making me feel a little bit more hopeful about whatever it is that might be just around the corner. I’ve always been a firm believer that everything happens for a reason, and I lost site of that in 2018.

It’s probably a little early to be getting this time of post in, I’ll admit. I’m always conscious of wishing time away – I know that for many people out there, time is not always something they have a luxury of. To have it in abundance, and to find yourself wishing the days would pass that little bit faster, is not the most grateful of attitudes.

Hello! Sorry for the radio silence, it’s been a very busy few weeks with family, friend and work woes. It seems like forever ago that one of the girls and I decided to take a little jaunt to the country side; we decided to drive deep into Herefordshire for a glamping stop-off at The Moon and I.

OK, so I know it’s Tuesday, but honestly, all I do is live for the weekend and the blissful 48 hours of peace it brings with it… There are a few things that I just simply love to do on a weekend – get a cuppa and prepare yourself for a nice chatty post!

I love all things Autumn (did I mention that yet? 😋)… And one thing I especially love about Autumn is cooking. Sundays are usually a roast dinner affair – homemade bread sauce, Yorkshires I make from scratch, all the trimmings… anyway. Sadly, work lunches don’t allow for so much delicious food, but I love a good staple soup and one of my all time favourites is the Sweet Potato Curry soup.

  You know that feeling, when you’ve had *the* shower – you’ve exfoliated, shaved, moisturised and tanned? Admittedly, this is the type of extensively indulgent time I only bother with if I have an event or similar (attractive, I know), but once you’ve done all of that, the next, natural step is to slip into something super comfy, right?
