The wise Olaf told the world that ‘some people are worth melting for’. The only problem is with all the fake friends out there, how do you know who’s worth it and who’s just pulling you along for the ride? Friendships can be so supportive and valuable, given that they’re with the right people, so today I’m going to give you a list of things that only a true friend would do so that you know if your friend is truly worth melting for.
Ever since lockdown, I’m definitely learning to appreciate the small things in life. Even things that used to annoy me, I now miss. There are just so many things I’m missing during lockdown … probably #3 and #12 the most though. What about you? What are you missing the most from normal life during lockdown?
This may not be you … but there are a few of us who look at the calendar and realise with a big shock that a significant day like Father’s Day is only a day or two away. Oh damn! How on earth are you meant to find a nice, meaningful gift in time, and make sure it doesn’t look like you completely forgot and got the first semi-appropriate gift you could find? It can be tough, and no one wants to be in that embarrassing and awkward situation so don’t worry! I have a solution for you. Do you want to know what that solution is? Well then click on this post and keep reading to find out 🙂

I’ve been doing a lot of networking recently and it’s been such an incredible experience – as a result, this amazing opportunity presented itself so today I want to thank PoojaG from lifesfinewhine for presenting this opportunity and I will be answering the given questions and giving my questions for my nominees – check it out!
Being kind to or helping others is known to be good for our own mental health and wellbeing because it can help reduce stress, make one feel more positive and improve emotional wellbeing in general. Not only that, but your kindness will also help the mental health of the person receiving your gesture. It’s an incredibly positive two-way street that only has benefits. So, with that in mind, I thought I’d do my second post for mental health awareness week on the very theme that the week is centred around: kindness. Lots of us, I’m sure, want to show kindness but sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming as to where to begin. That’s why today all I’ll be doing is sharing a few ideas for ways to spread the love and care.
This week also happens to be Mental Health Awareness Week in the UK. So, considering how vital this cause is and how relevant it is to society today, I thought I’d also join in by making posts this week that take a look at mental health.
So today, to kick off my mental health awareness week of posts, I wanted to ask an array of people their opinion on mental health and mental illnesses (shout out to my best friend Keeanne for giving me this incredible idea). By sharing the answers of these people I’ve interviewed, I’m hoping to show that there is far more to mental health than people think and that mental illnesses are incredibly serious and not something that can be helped by the individual.
The COVID-19 pandemic seems to have caused a never-ending lockdown, and one of the funny things to emerge from that is ‘quarantine 15’. In my opinion, the best way to fight the quarantine 15 and keep your health goals on track is to skip the diets and hours of cardio and opt for the calorie-counting option. Curious what that is?

It’s almost Mother’s Day again except this year things are going to be a little bit different … we can’t take our moms to the same special places, buy her the same gifts or even spend time with her in person in some cases. Not to worry, because today I’ve made a list of a few ways that you can celebrate Mother’s Day even during lockdown. I hope you enjoy it xx
One of the huge benefits of being on a lockdown (I know that sounds weird but one can’t deny that in spite of all the stress and negativity and health concerns, there are a few positives that can emerge) is that I’ve had way more time to read. For as long as I can remember, reading has been my favourite hobby. I used to stay up past my bedtime and read by torchlight under my duvet, thinking how sneaky I was and that my parents would never know. Of course, they always knew but the reason they never stopped me is because they’ve always loved how much we all read and have encouraged us to read as much as we want for years. However, the end of high school meant that I didn’t have nearly as much leisure time and so my favourite hobby sort of fell into the cracks of my life. You might think that I could have revived it last year during all my travels and short courses, and I would have made the same assumption, except I was actually incredibly busy so while I may have been able to read a little more than in high school, it still wasn’t a lot. This lockdown has meant that I can finally start enjoying all those books I’ve been wanting to read and haven’t had the time for. So, as you can imagine, I’ve been reading quite a bit and have easily read a dozen books this month. It’s been amazing! Now I mostly read YA and contemporary romantic fiction, because who doesn’t love some romance and a happily ever after, but occasionally I branch out and try something a little more heavy. So, because Thursday was World Book Day (I would have posted this on Wednesday but Wednesday was Earth day and I really wanted to write something that honoured our incredible planet – P.S. check out that post here: ) I thought I’d share my favourite books of the month and five reasons why you should definitely give them a read. There is one YA Romcom (because it’s my favourite genre and everyone could do with something light and sweet these days), a fantastic romantic fiction that is laugh-out-loud, and a more intense YA contemporary fiction novel for those who aren’t as into candyfloss stories as me. This is my first attempt at a blogging book review so hopefully it isn’t too awful and I will do my best to not give any spoilers 😊 Right … Let’s talk about books!
