How I Enhanced My Life | Small Ways to Improve Your Life 2019

Tuesday, 25 June 2019


I feel like it's safe to say that the majority of us want to live a positive and happy life. But really, how many of us go out of our way to put habits into place to try and do this? I definitely used my early twenties as a time to party and live a very chaotic life. Reflecting now, as fun as some of the times were (some really were not), I used it as an escape from what was happening in my home life (my little brother being in an accident). I also got into a toxic relationship which went on for a large portion of my early twenties, again, not having a great impact on my life or my choices. 

When I compare then, to what my life is like now or even to who I am, the change is massive. There are many things I did to make me and my life more positive. Here are 5 (of many) things that I did to do this. [video version available at the bottom of this post]

How To Start Getting Up At 5am

I did not used to get up before 10am without being absolutely fuming about it. For many many years I was the girl that every assumed would not make it to lunch because I'd still be asleep (which was usually true). However, now I'm the girl that calls 7am a lie in. It's taken some time but I've managed to transition from being up til 2am and getting up at 11am to going to bed at 10:30 and being up between 5-6am most mornings. But how is this madness possible you ask? Well read on (or watch the YouTube Video) and you will find out how to start getting up at 5am!

I realise the title of this post is somewhat confusing as I've listed different products so I'll do my best to explain.

Tips For Dealing With Stress | 2019

Tips For Dealing With Stress

Trying to figure out how to deal with stress? Or different ways to lower your stress levels. You have come to the right place. My life is somewhat busy. I work 3 days a week, study a full time MSc 2 days a week and I have a toddler (as well as family, friends and a boyfriend to think of). I also have things in my personal life which add that little bit of extra stress! I regularly receive comments from people asking how have I not had a breakdown yet... Now don't get me wrong, I've had days where I've really struggled to cope, but they are quite minimal and in-frequent. I think I've always been the kind of person who has managed stress well, but recently I have definitely had to focus on ways to relax and de-stress more than before. These are some of the things that science says to do, as well as some of the things I have found worked well for me.

Life With An 18 Month Old Daughter

Wednesday, 17 April 2019



Yes I am slightly late with the 18 month update but I will blame university, work and being a single mum.. rather than just poor time keeping. Anyway, it has been around 18 months since I had my daughter. I thought I'd write a rambling post about what life is like with an 18 month old.

How To Be More Positive and Happy

how to be more positive
How to be more positive and happy | 2019

So you want to know how to be more positive and happy? I'm pretty sure that (although I tend to avoid doing so) I can make a pretty sweeping comment here that all of us want to be happy. Granted, different things make people happy in different ways, but the vast majority of humans want to be happy in their lives. Some people are naturally quite positive, while others need to actively work on it. Others are in unfortunate circumstances which make happiness somewhat difficult. I have definitely had a period of time where I was a negative person and a period of time where pretty much everything around me was going wrong. However, overall I'd say I am a pretty positive person and I am a happy person. Of course we all of down times and times where we are stressed, but if we are keeping it general, I'm a pretty positive person (with a bit of an edge, like Phoebe).

Current Cruelty Free Beauty Favourites

As I mentioned in my 2019 Come Back blog post, I have been moving into a cruelty free lifestyle, which of course includes beauty.

So, as a newbie, these are all the wonderful things I have discovered and love in the land of cruelty free beauty.

Easy Vegan 'Pulled Pork' Buddha Bowl - High Protein Meal Idea

Wednesday, 13 February 2019


This is a meal idea for a super quick, easy and high protein vegan buddha bowl. It comes to approx. 40g of protein. Now, if you are like me, and you aren't really too fussed by hitting high levels then you won't really care about that. Enough to survive is fine. However, if you are looking for higher protein meal (but, if you're vegan, where do you get your protein?) then this meal is a great option. 

2019 Come Back

Saturday, 9 February 2019


Well, I haven't written on here for quite some time. I'd say that I have forgotten how to do this, but it's basically just talking to yourself and I do that all the time so I think I will get back into the swing of things quite quickly.
