Winter Weekends

July 22, 2019

I feel like winter can seriously get you down, which is why it requires little pre-planning. Look at the next few months and plot a couple weekends away, maybe a lunch or two out of the city and generally a couple activities that keep you feeling pepped up.  Not that every weekend needs to be jam packed, I love a movie marathon, heater and take-outs just like the next girl, but having something to look forward too (when you don’t have a European summer break on the cards) can really help!

BLACK BOOTS

July 2, 2019

With winter being here and work slowing down a touch I thought I might go back to a bit of blogging. So many articles have been flung around the inter web these past fews months about the death of the old school blog. With a couple counter pieces saying can Instagram ever replace this space?

PRESSURE

July 24, 2018


It’s been a tough two weeks tbh, starting your own business comes with serious ups and downs and I feel like the outside pressure ‘of doing well’” can be crippling. Especially in the early parts of building your own thing, social media is a tool used to help you market but can also give you ALL of the anxiety while you watch other people/ brands look like they are killing it in the game. And thats because A) you got to fake it until you make it – by keeping up the facade that all is splendid and B) noone wants to show their sad/bad/a tad average days. Unfortunately thats the reality of this new world, and I constantly have to remind myself not to compare or envy others – because the truth is you never really know whats going on behind the curtain.
