Self-Reflection Sundays – Music is good for the soul

I don’t know about you, but there’s nothing better than a Sunday filled with tunes. It’s so easy to get wrapped up in day-to-day stuff – cooking, cleaning, working, parenting, blah, blah, blah… stopping for five minutes to turn on your Bluetooth, connect your speaker and select a playlist that matches your feels of the…

Self-Reflection Sundays – Print your special moments

Happy Sunday! I’m a person who always wants to capture important moments. Since having a second child, I’ve been slacking… too busy, with two children and only two arms. Taking and printing photos has always been a love of mine; there’s nothing quite like physically viewing and touching your most sacred times. Technology has given…

Self-Reflection Sundays: AND BREATHE

Today, there seems to be an atmosphere of calm and relief. The next turn on this roller coaster of a year (for me at least), hung in the balance of the 2020 US election. A Trump re-election would have summed up the shiteness of an unforgettable 10 months. I now feel in a place of…

Self-Reflection Sundays – Clear that brain fog!

Recently I’ve had quite a bit going on. All good things but I’ve started to find it challenging to think clearly. My brain is all foggy. Brain fog Brain fog isn’t a medical condition; it's basically when your ability to think becomes hampered. I consider myself an organised person, but boy oh boy have I…

Self-Reflection Sundays – Essential oils

If you’re in London today, this Sunday has been met with rain and dreariness, but don’t worry your pretty little socks, this Self-Reflection Sunday is all about essential oils which should hopefully brighten up your day! I’m an essential oil lover – this went up a notch after the birth of my first daughter. I…

Self-reflection Sundays – Face your fears

It’s my favourite day of the blogging week – Self-reflection time. This week I faced one of my real life and debilitating fears – Speaking in front of hundreds of people. Workplace racism was put under the spotlight after George Floyd was killed. Black employees started asking their employers the questions that seemed too difficult…

Self-Reflection Sundays – Count your blessings

There are days when anxiety creeps in. This usually happens when something in my life isn’t going to ‘plan’ or as I’d hope. It always surprises me just how easy it is to forget the good things in my life even if just one small aspect goes skewwhiff. A couple of years ago, a good friend…

Self-reflection Sundays – Talk to someone

We lost another hero; Chadwick Boseman’s tenacity to fight such a difficult and courageous battle, all while changing the world, makes him one of the true greats. 2020 has been a deafening year. Our lives have all been disrupted in one shape or another. Sometimes speaking to an independent person may be beneficial when we’re…

Self-reflection Sundays – Juicing

I’ve been given the gift of time this weekend, which is perfect because this is the Sunday I start my next juicing fast. Juicing has grown in popularity over the past few years as the benefits have become more known. I was introduced to juicing over a decade ago through one of my sisters, but…

Self-reflection Sundays – You are what you mentally consume

It’s a new Sunday and self care takes prime place again. Today is all about what we choose to consume via our social media platforms. Society’s promotion of unattainable standards is well documented. Unrealistic images are forced upon us via films, magazines, advertising, and so on. But what we also need to consider is, what…
