I love a good morning routine blog post or Youtube video. Curiosity truly gets the better of me and all I want to see is what other people do when they get up in a morning. Is that weird, maybe, but I like it. However, my day job means that a morning routine isn’t really that realistic and sometimes I feel like a failure for not managing a yoga routine, planning my day, writing six pages in my journal and having a smoothie before I head out of the door. Most morning routines I watch or read are from freelancers…

Follow my blog with Bloglovin I recently hit a pretty big milestone; I managed to make it through a whole year as a qualified nurse (without losing my registration). That’s a joke but I can honestly say there’s not a day passes at work where I don’t panic about it. The past year has been a rollercoaster ride.

Milk has always been a foe of mine. I hated it as a child and I still hate it now, except I can make some allowances (like when it’s being made into a mac n’ cheese sauce. So in a vow to be more animal friendly and…

Social media is a tricky trickster isn’t it? You don’t even log in to anything anymore, you just type the first couple of letters into your URL bar and up it comes. That’s when you’re faced with utter information overload. Opinions stated as though they are fact, edited photos on edited backgrounds, it’s impossible to tell whether you’re looking at something real or entirely curated? At the end of 2018, I realised I was becoming more and more irritated with a certain aspect of blogging: the falseness of it all. I probably shouldn’t let it affect me so much but…
