It’s Cardigan Weather!

It’s finally Autumn. The time of year I evolve from a too-sweaty-to-function pile of goo on the floor and become a fully-formed almost-functional member of society and get to wear layers. It’s cardigan weather! Now we can pivot from making small talk about how hot it is to making small talk about how cold it… Continue reading It’s Cardigan Weather!

I’m Feeling 2022!

“I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling 22. Everything will be alright if, you keep me next to you. You don’t know about me but I’ll bet you want to.

Where you stack an additional habit onto an already established one e.g. adding calf raises to your toothbrushing regime, doing stretches as your coffee brews or meditating after hitting the snooze button.

Guess who’s back?

I’m baaackk! Have missed you guyZ and bloggY. Since I’ve been gone-bloggY turned 4 and Melbournians turned 164 due to Stage 4 restrictions. I’ve decided to post whenever/wherever I’m inspired to so do (sign up to email list below for a heads up). The survey results (link to take it below if you’re yet to) showed a pretty even split between the topics you enjoy reading on WFM; Money, Sobriety/ Health, Recommendations (books, movies etc), Self-help stuff (law of attraction, mindfulness). So, I thought I’d give you a little of each to kick off the comeback.
