Duchess of Discomfort

Recently I’ve been exploring how to get comfortable with the uncomfortable. After all, life isn’t always a cake walk through the forest of rainbows and if we fight it, flee it or bitch about it, it gets worser rather than betterer. My aim is to always be cool, calm and unruffled and act with more… Continue reading Duchess of Discomfort

Life hacks

Hello there humanoid person. Life is hard why not hack it? How can you simplify? Make your life smoother and creamier with no bitter aftertaste. I have spoken of my monk like dedication to routines and my whirlwind life of the same skirt, the same lunch and a similar episode of Midsomer Murders (it was… Continue reading Life hacks

The moon made me do it

Do you feel a full moon coming? I do and it’s not just for teenage American werewolves in Paris. The moon can have profound effect on how we feel. In times past, farmers used it to plant their crops and women used it to plan their cycle and fertility. ‘Not tonight dear, the moon is… Continue reading The moon made me do it

Fearsome

As you may have now realised, I’m a self-help junkie. I love a fix of the law of attraction, an attitude of gratitude and a recital of affirmations. One of the topics often explored in the self-help realm is facing fear. Fear of failure, fear of being criticised, fear of the Kardashians inheriting the earth,… Continue reading Fearsome

Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes!

It can be scary to change, to turn and face the strange. Even if our old ways are no longer helpful, at least they’re comfortable and familiar. Feeling blah is like an old worn out couch with an Yvette-shaped groove. Yes, it should be out in hard rubbish but I’ve spent so much time here.… Continue reading Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes!

Happy 1st Birthday!

It’s been 1 whole year since I began my blogging journey, shamelessly sharing 34 posts about everything and anything that takes my fancy; self-help, silliness, sobriety, shyness, minimalism, mindfulness, woo woo stuff and 90’s nostalgia. Thanks friend for liking and commenting and sharing and reading. I really truly appreciate it and am sending good vibes,… Continue reading Happy 1st Birthday!

Goodnight Sweetheart

There is much focus on the morning routine and as you know dear reader, I’m a big fan of the 4.30am edge. But if you don’t get some solid sleep before hand, you may end up punching your alarm clock rather than punching the air with enthusiasm in the morning. We are probably all familiar… Continue reading Goodnight Sweetheart

Is this an act of self-love?

Self-love doesn’t come naturally to most of us but until you can accept and care for and yes, even love yourself, you won’t be able to share your love and joy with your loved ones and unsuspecting members of the public. But what does self-love look like and how can we achieve it? Perhaps it… Continue reading Is this an act of self-love?

Creativity

I’ve been thinking a lot about creativity lately. I’ve been enjoying getting back into writing again. Thank you dear reader for your part in enabling this. As children, we have such an uninhibited approach to creating. We fling ourselves into paintings, dancing, drama or stories without a second thought about what others think or if… Continue reading Creativity
