Do you overthink? I do sometimes and its a very destructive habit. I’ve discovered a few things that help me though…

Find inspiration – use that amazing brain we have for positivity…read great books, watch fantastic films and TV, embrace art or start writing (blogging is a great way to achieve that).  

Exercise – when I run my mind works freely, exorcising all those negative thoughts we carry. You get to see nature close-up as being on foot makes you see the world at a different level. Listen to music.  And when you return, your mind will feel free of all the clutter that was there before.

Detox your life – remove toxic people and don’t allow yourself to be in negative situations. Learn to say no – we all have responsibilities of course but you don’t have do things you dont want to do. 

Life is short and I’m aiming to not spend it battling with my pointless, negative, critical thoughts. What a waste of time and energy that would be…

I wonder what 2016 has in store? I am not one for New Years resolutions but if you are, good luck with them, and may this coming year may bring you whatever you desire. Its a new year and it can be a new start if you want it.

Me? I’m just going to continue on the path I set myself a few years back, keeping fit by running regularly and making sure I do not gain back the 6.5 stone by counting calories 6 days a week plus making sure I keep the balance of my work and home life on the side of my home and family. I also always aim to travel somewhere new with my partner every year. I have a new challenge in the form of a part time marketing job, I will continue to run my Etsy shop selling vintage and of course post all my style blogs here!

What adventures are you aiming for in 2016? I would love to know.

Dont wait till January to start resolutions you know you’ll give up on within weeks. If you want to change something do it today!

Are you a parent? Its hard isnt it? As parents we are often toughest on ourselves and this week I am making a conscious effort to stop obsessing on all the things I think I should or could be doing better as a perfect ‘super mum’. Instead I’m going to celebrate the tons of stuff that I am doing and do everyday.

I’ve always been a bit ashamed of being so emotional, wearing my heart on my sleeve, my wild nature and my heart over head mentality. But this clever quote makes me remember hearts are meant to be like that. My heart will never be tamed!

I have learnt that people will critise you whatever you do, and you know what? Its not a bad thing. The trick is how you handle that criticism…

Oscar Wilde’s wit is never a bad thing and this is a little reminder that sometimes we can take life and all its ups and downs a little too seriously… I can often get myself worked up about something I really should just let go of, so for me this is a great quote to remind myself.

Cecil Beatons note to self encourages us to not be ordinary, to not be afraid of being different…in fact to revel in it. Being very creative and all that comes with it can be hard, many people dont understand it at all, but personally I wouldn’t want to be any other way.
