Aaaand we're back in the office! Not every day of the week, just two days for now, but it's a start. It's been good to be back in the same room as my colleagues, have organic conversations about our clients or projects without having to schedule them first, and just be working somewhere that isn't… Continue reading What’s In My Work Bag?
(Ironically, this blog post took me two weeks to finish) The UK business scene is starting to get back on it feet, with some businesses reintroducing employees into the office environment with new rules and restrictions. For me, I'm still working from home, typing and scheming away at my dressing table/workspace. I do miss the… Continue reading How to Maximise Your Productivity
If there is one thing I love more in this world than chicken nuggets and Henry Cavill, it's gotta be jewellery. There's just something so elevating to an outfit about jewellery; it's like the cherry on top of a cake. You could be wearing a totally boring, all-black outfit that makes you look like a… Continue reading Everyday Jewellery Collection
(try saying that five times, fast) Unsplash: Austin Chan I know what you're thinking. "Positive pessimism? That doesn't make sense! What is this girl on?" Well, bare with me and I'll explain, alright? I guess "realist" is probably the most familiar term when describing this outlook, but "positive pessimism" does differ slightly. In case ya… Continue reading Practising Positive Pessimism
I remember at the very beginning of lockdown when everyone was talking about how much money we would all save since all the shops were shut and we couldn't go out to eat all the time. HA! LIES! Because I've had some extra cash lying around, I have been a little spend-happy (when am I… Continue reading Lockdown Purchase Rundown
I think it's safe to say that I watch more YouTube than any other media - more than the telly, more than Netflix. I like how accessible it feels, I like that the content tends to be shorter than a TV show or movie, and I feel like I don't need to give it my… Continue reading My YouTubers, Now Your YouTubers?
"Isn't she not a thing of beauty? Don't you just want to not eat her so you can just sit and admire her? She does look as good as she tastes..." Ok, enough objectifying the cookie. She's cute, we get it. But, seriously, look how cute she is. I can't believe I was actually able… Continue reading Chocolate Chunk Cookies Chunkier Than Me
Week 8 of lockdown - sanity is adjusting to this new base level. I have forgotten what my friends feel like when I squish them. I miss wandering around the town centre aimlessly, a Costa iced coffee in hand because I felt like spending £2.80. What does 7000 daily steps feel like again? Will I… Continue reading How I’m WFH in the UK Lockdown
When I've said to people in the past that I have a skin disease, they give me this look. It's a look I've come to recognise as "empty acceptance". They understand that a skin disease is a bad thing, but because they can't see it, that's all they can really process - their understanding is… Continue reading Living with a Chronic Disease
One thing I really, really miss during this lockdown is going to cinema, or the "pi'chers", as my family call it. I also miss gummy pick n mix, but that's not the point. I think the last film I went to see at my local Cineworld was EMMA, and it was so charming and delightful… Continue reading My All-Time Favourite Films
