There’s two things that you should already know about me. 1) I love Disney. I love Disney with all my heart. I’ve grown up with Disney, I have a Disney related blog name, a Disney tattoo and I never listen to regular music – just Disney songs (okay that’s a white lie but I do listen to a lot of Disney songs on a day-to-day basis). And 2) I love books. Books remain my one true love. Books brought me out of a dark place and books led me to start my blog which has brought me so much since; friends, creative freedom, self-employment and amazing opportunities to work with some wonderful brands. Like The Book People, who I’m lucky enough to work with today.
Over the last few months, I’ve seen loads of my favourite bloggers collaborating with each other on posts and quite frankly guys… I felt a little left out *wipes tear*. I kid but seriously, I’ve seen a ton of blogger collaborations and I wanted in because they look fun and it’s always a chance to support another blogger at the same time so win, win in my opinion! Lisa from Lisa’s Notebook, who’s became a good blogging friend over the last year asked me if I’d like to collaborate in October so of course I said yes and of course I suggested a Autumn-themed collaboration.
Medicine is an extraordinary thing, there’s no denying that. This post is in no way, shape or form trying to declare that natural is the *only” way to achieve wellness or the only way to treat illness. That would be incredibly dangerous of me (and of anyone really) to make such claims. I believe in science and I also believe in the powers of nature and natural remedies as well and I don’t see why they can’t work together harmoniously for us to lead healthy and happy lives. Since I’ve gotten a bit older and a bit more aware of my body, I’m definitely more in tune with what makes me feel “well” and I’ve become more and more aware of the natural remedies which make me feel in peak form compared to say, when I was a teenager and didn’t really understand the effects of a good diet, exercise and natural remedies.
I don’t know about you but I’ve always found bathrooms a really calming place to be. I feel like I can relax in a bathroom and as someone that suffers from anxiety, having places to go where I know I’ll feel calmer is hugely important to me. No matter what the situation, if you’re with a big group of people and need 5 minutes peace and quiet, the bathroom is probably the most popular place most of us will head to. Because a lot of us need a time out from socialisation every now and again. The bathroom in your home can certainly be one of the most peaceful and calming rooms of the house and personally, I love that time in the morning and in the evening where I head into the bathroom to wash and just be with myself and my thoughts.
Want to make healthier choices this summer? The aim of National Allotment Week this year (which begins on Monday 13th August) is to encourage more people to grow their own fruit and veg. Growing your own is one of the best and most rewarding ways to kick start a healthier lifestyle – and it’s also much easier than you may think!
Despite being the type of person that’s always working on something, sometimes in the dead of Summer it gets far too hot to be able to lift a finger. I tried to take blog photos in the UK’s 31 degree heat the other day and I nearly died. 10/10 would not recommend. And if you’re in the UK right now you’ll be very much aware that we’re in the middle of one of the longest, hottest periods some of us have probably ever seen! Whether you love it or hate it, we all need those super lazy Summer Days where the only thing we achieve is the ultimate Summer selfie: sunglasses, cute messy bun, headphones (such as a pair of the super glamorous rose gold Beats Headphones) and a glass of Prosecco. Cos damn… it’s too hot to do anything else.
If you are planning your next big holiday like vacationing on a private island or booking a safari adventure, well, you sure need to have sufficient money. However, that does not mean that you cannot afford those luxury getaways. There is no need to shelve those plans or skip the vacation if you are worried about the expenses. Let us face the truth, taking an overseas holiday is expensive and if it is a luxury getaway, the costs begin to stack up quickly. Still, vacations are important and don’t let yourself hold them back for various reasons. Well, you are just on the right page if looking for ways to save and finance money for your next vacation.
