Motivational Monday | Three Inspiring Lessons To Learn From Helen Keller

Happy New Year! ♥ ♥ “New year, new start.” Just like a lot of people, I begin 2017 with a fresh, positive outlook on the next twelve months and a whole new focus on achieving my dreams. Beyond my own sheer determination and eternally optimistic nature, I discovered another incredible source of inspiration this afternoon as I sat down […]

Lifestyle | 10 Times We’ve All Been Ariel From The Little Mermaid

Aside from the fact that she was born a mermaid and lived most of her young life under the sea with an assortment of aquatic animals for friends, Ariel from The Little Mermaid might just be the most relatable Disney princess – ever. And whilst some of us go all-out in the mermaid stakes, take […]

Motivational Monday | Which Wolf Will You Feed?

Today is ‘Blue Monday’, otherwise known as the third Monday in January and, supposedly, the most depressing day of the year – but you can change that, you can always change that. I wanted to share a parable that derives from Native American tradition to help to explain… One evening, an elderly Cherokee brave told his […]

Lifestyle | Fun Ways To Celebrate World Kindness Day

         There are so many things that we have to be thankful for: friends, family, jobs and even pets but it’s so easy to get wrapped up in our busy lives and take the people that we see every day for granted. World Kindness Day (13th Nov) acts as a reminder to pause, count […]

Motivational Monday | Lukewarm Is No Good

This is a short but sweet Motivational Monday entry because the quote says it all. It’s important to be an enthusiast about life because what will having a glass-half-empty attitude achieve? You don’t know how many more trips around the sun you have, so no matter what difficulties or problems you’re currently facing, sometimes you need to brush […]

Lifestyle | #TBT: Forgotten Hobbies & Unfinished Projects

Last week, I was sorting through some of my storage units from childhood that are currently in the garage and on doing so, I unearthed an old sketchbook, which had just one single painting in it. It’s funny how one piece of artwork can bring back a flood of memories, I was around 14 years old when […]

Motivational Monday | Pay It Forward

I’ve experienced a case of writers block today, when I have so many ideas in mind, it can be difficult to focus on just one and attempt to shape that into coherent sentences. Coincidentally, I’ve also become my own worst critic, which is proven by the fact that I have another Motivational Monday post written and saved in my […]

Motivational Monday | Life Lessons From Peter Pan

Peter Pan, written by J.M. Barrie, has always been one of my favourite stories, which later got adapted for the big screen, produced by none other than Walt Disney, for release in 1953. Children would be drawn into the tale by the stunning scenery, beautiful mermaids and fairies, swashbuckling sword fights and breath-taking flying sequences, however as […]

Motivational Monday | Remember To Look Up

I have touched upon a similar topic previously for Motivational Monday in my Beauty is Everywhere and Pleased to Meet You blog posts, explaining things in our lives that we should take the time to appreciate, including anything from a beautiful sunset, a quiet ‘me’ moment and even a complete stranger adding brightness to our day. We are all so connected but what does […]
