Finally,​ there’s a Newsletter + Noteworthy Favourites


           Yes, please!/No Thanks, I don’t like cool stuff

I’m beyond excited to announce that finally has a monthly newsletter! It’s a new way to connect with you and dish on things that have sparked inspiration for me lately as well as share updates in real time. Each monthly newsletter will consist of a monthly recap of the month before, BTS photos, favourites and a whole lot more. Subscribers will also be first to know about giveaways. I personally think that newsletters should be interesting, inspiring and add value to your life and that is what I hope to bring to you with each newsletter that lands in your inbox.


It’s no secret that I love to write and I think handwritten notes are priceless and that is why all my newsletters will be partly handwritten…

Golden Hour

…but hopefully a little neater!

The 1st one comes out on Monday Morning! Sign up here so you don’t miss it!

Each Morning I wake up, complete my AM Habits and settle down at my desk to begin working through my to-do list and emails. This pic was taken a while back and I remember on that morning I decided to take my work to a local spot as they do the best Vanilla Chai Lattes in town ( I was caffeine free ~ short-lived!)

Golden Hour

If there is one thing I enjoy about going through my emails, it’s sifting through them to find what I like to call the gems. These gems are the newsletters that inspire me and add value in some way or another. Whether it’s getting notified that one of my wishlist items is back in stock, discovering a new recipe or an article on “How to ____” (fill blank with something about being successful) ~ I’m always learning something new.

Here is a list of newsletters and mailing lists that I adore. Continue reading “Finally,​ there’s a Newsletter + Noteworthy Favourites”


What I do when I’m {feeling} anxious or depressed {Mental Health Awareness Month} In Real Time #1

It’s the end of May and I couldn’t let the month go out without highlighting Mental Health Awareness Month. I’m a huge advocate for Mental health and everything that falls underneath that umbrella, so this post is something I felt compelled to write. I am very familiar with mental health issues and am so proud of the leaps that society has taken in terms of creating awareness, slowly squashing the stigma attached and supporting those coming from all different walks of life who need it.

I’ll mention this at the start of the post just in case you don’t make it all the way down to the end. If you are someone who battles with depression or anxiety please know that you’re not alone. Please seek guidance, find a support system and above all else be kind to yourself and stay strong. You are valued. You’re important and your existence is worth fighting for.

I’m starting a new series on this blog called “In real time”. Concept; I sit down, Streamline my mind, write emotively and hit publish. I will, of course, proofread my pros but other than that no tweaking. I love organic content in any form and feel as though in today’s society with social media heavily curating everything, I find myself asking “Where are the real people at?”. If you vibe with me on this one please send me a tweet ~ I could talk about this all day haha!

Just over a week ago I posted my first blog post in over a year and mentioned that I’ll be sharing with you parts of my story. I have several bases to cover so I’ve figured out that the best way to do that, is to let it all slowly unravel through my content. Let’s call this 1st base; Mental health.

Justin Nozuka Live at The Garage London | Run To Waters Out Now

Justin Nozuka is a Canadian-American Singer-Songwriter with music that can be best described as a soothing blend of acoustic-folk-soul laced with thought-provoking lyrics and heart string pulling angelic vocals. Yes, That’s a mighty long description and it’s a pretty accurate one in my books. Justin Nozuka has the ability to evoke emotion through his gift for storytelling and in all honesty, it’s second to none. His stage presence is mesmerising and if you ever get the chance to see him perform live, I highly recommend that you do.

Last Month saw Justin Nozuka’s European tour land at The Garage in London and you can bet your sweet bottom dollar I was there. If only you knew how long I’ve waited to see Justin Perform live. It’s been well over a decade and I have to say it exceeded my expectations and left a lasting impression. I live for making memories that last a lifetime and this was definitely one of them.

If soft folk meets powerhouse blues sounds like something you’d enjoy then definitely check them out. There’s something magical about home-grown talent. I love how they paint pictures through their songwriting. If I had to pick my personal favourite number of theirs (although it’s hard to choose) I would have to say Better in yellow and London Blues. Trust me ~ you’ve never seen a more grounded, hardworking and talented duo that can do it all.
