Channel your inner Gwyneth: How to Consciously Uncouple from your Place of Work

Hey Sweeties,

As celebrities go, Gwyneth Paltrow is not somebody I particularly rate but I don’t mean that disrespectfully… we all laughed when she named her daughter Apple, and then we laughed some more when she referred to her divorce from Chris Martin as ‘consciously uncoupling’. But then we thought, maybe she is on to something and actually, there is a way to adopt a better attitude to things, situations, and people we no longer feel the same for. So today I am asking you to channel your inner Gwyneth and to let me tell you how to consciously uncouple from your place of work. Why? Because even though you’ve made the decision to leave because a few things have soured, or you have got bored etc. it’s important not to burn your bridges because you never know if down the line you may need them again, or them, you.

Spoil Mum this Mother’s Day with a Luxury Bouquet from Prestige Flowers

Hey Sweeties,

I don’t know about you, but I love flowers – I love growing them in my garden at home, I love looking at them when out and about, and I also love taking photos of flowers, plants and nature (if that wasn’t already obvious on this blog). Additionally, I also adore having a bunch of colourful fresh flowers in my house, so when Prestige Flowers offered the opportunity to review a Luxury Bouquet from their Mother’s Day collection* I jumped at the chance.

Four Ideas to Celebrate Valentine’s Day on a Budget

Hey Sweeties,

Seeking some financial respite after the often busy and expensive festive period, it’s forgivable for many to want to keep spending thereafter to a minimum. For loved up bunnies however, Valentine’s Day is an extra excuse to tell your other half how much they mean to you… but it doesn’t need to break the bank.

Sparkling Afternoon Tea for Two at the Tower Hotel London

Hey Sweeties,

As I mentioned in my last post (here), I said that as I have gotten older I prefer to spend my money on services and experiences, and this also applies to gifts. I live away from my family and most of my friends and so for me, I love to give and receive the gift of time and share in something as opposed to having a gift that will just take up more space (but that’s not to say I am ungrateful for the presents I receive). For Christmas I was really lucky to receive two afternoon tea vouchers, one from my friend that I still need to book, and this Sparkling Afternoon Tea for Two at the Tower Hotel London, that I am reviewing for you today.

Getting back your sass -How to get back to you after a negative experience

Hey Sweeties,

As some of you will be aware, 2018 hasn’t started so great for me… well, it depends how you look at it I guess. On 2nd January I resigned from a job (without a plan B unfortunately) that over the course of about two months completely crushed my confidence and turned me into an anxious and stressed wreck. So from one perspective I made a great decision (to leave), but this has still ultimately led to me currently without permanent employment. However, more on that another time.

So how do you get back your sass and get back to feeling like you again following a set back? Or maybe your Mum/sister/gran/aunt or best friend needs a boost to help lift their spirits a little? Sometimes it can be as simple as a sweet scented treat like Gift Sets for Her* to bring back a smile, or you need some of these ideas –
