[AD – GIFTED] 2018 was the year I really knuckled down with this whole self care business. Before I started blogging, I honestly had never heard of the phrase ‘self care’ before in my life and I didn’t realise that taking care of yourself was such a big business. I mean yes, I brushed my […]

My top things I treat myself to when I feel like sh*t

If I’ve learnt anything this year so far, it’s that we could all do with giving ourselves a bloody break once in a while. It’s okay not to be “on it” every minute of the day, it’s okay not to be productive every single day of your life and it’s certainly okay to feel like […]
