My Own Worst Enemy

I’m generally quite stable when it comes to my mood. I’m outgoing, gregarious and positive 99% of the time. When I do have a mood swing though I go from one to the polar opposite.  It usually manifests itself in every tiny thought of self-doubt that I’ve ever had magnifying to a million times their normal…

Garden of Dreams

I love when things come together like this – especially at the moment when not much else is, at least my blogging is! There is so much cuteness and gooey goodness in this post with the items from across a range of stores and different events, and they all worked so well together for this…

Fast Car

I’m really not a flashy car type. As long as it gets me from A to B I don’t really care what it is and what it looks like. I just want to get where I’m going and know that I’m going in the right direction. Continuously moving forward. I’m a total fidget in real…

Wake Up Lil Suzie

This made me giggle this morning: opinions are like orgasms…mine is more important and I really don’t care if you have one It gave me a LOL moment which these kind of memes often do. It’s humourous and not to be taken literally of course. I had several conversations over the last couple of weeks…

Two’s Company

A couple of weeks ago I got the opportunity to collaborate with my twinny, fellow blogger and friend Divos on a presentation for the Blogger & Vlogger Network. Our subject du jour was Collaborating with Other Bloggers and during the presentation we set a bit of a challenge for the bloggers of BVN to collaborate…

Down, but not out

I’ve had a very peculiar week and weekend emotionally. Nothing particularly triggered it but I found myself feeling lower than I have in a long time with no good reason. However, once I was down it seemed like everything that happened just pushed me down deeper into my doldrum. Even Facebook had a ‘kick her…

Here Comes the Sun

There’s been a break in the weather! It’s superbly Springlike in the UK at the moment which is such a refreshing change from the dull, dowdy weather of the last few weeks. Now the battle for control of the heating and opening windows begins at home and at work. See, I don’t feel the cold…

If You Could Read Me Like a Book

I was wondering today what the cover of the book of my life would look like. They say you can’t judge a book by it’s cover but as someone who spent a few years working in book publishing sales and marketing I know just how important the cover of a book is to grabbing the…

Living in a Box

The title of the blog is definitely a reference to the picture and not how I am feeling, or what I am going to write about. In fact, quite the opposite. I will tell you more about the location for this picture in a few minutes but first I want to talk about the pre-Christmas…

Oh Baby It’s Cold Outside

I’m not sure whether other bloggers write all the details of their posts in one go or do it in bits and pieces til it comes together as I do. The picture for this post was taken and prepared at least 48 hours past from when I am typing this. 18 hours ago I listed…

Don’t Look Back in Anger

Facebook memories are all the rage…sometimes they are good, sometimes not so good. Pretty much anything we post on Facebook will be coming back around this time next year to either put a smile on our face or cause the upside down frown. Not gonna lie I spent several months earlier this year dreading what…

I Don’t Shine if you Don’t Shine

I’ve been thinking about writing about Shine Theory for some time and my amazing, beautiful friend Sady wrote about a similar thing today on her blog so it seemed like today should be the day! I first heard about Shine Theory from an article on the BBC about the aides working in President Obama’s White House…
