Blogging from bed needs to be done sometimes…

Roughly two years ago I started blogging and so much has happened in that time. It’s been a real period of growth where I’ve faced (and blogged about) certain issues such as confidence. I’ve learned a ton of skills from writing, photography, editing and even how not to look miserable in front of the camera. All in all it’s been a coming of age. I have more confidence in myself and a better idea about who I am as a person. With all these personal changes the stuff I use to blog has stayed pretty much the same.

My friend called on Friday as I was wracking my brains for something to blog about. I was completely stuck and trying to think of something was beginning to annoy me (totally blaming it on the recent new moon of Scorpio). Anyway, when I picked up I could tell my friend was not right and I quickly asked what was going on. To cut a long story short she was overwhelmed with everything going on in her life and didn’t know what to do. As we chatted on the phone I tried to offer some tips and advice to help her stay centered whilst everything else swirls around like a tornado. Most of us experience some level of stress on a regular (if not daily) basis and after I hung up from my friend I considered my increasing writers block and put it down to the juggling act of managing tasks. The increasing demands of daily life aren’t going anywhere so testing out techniques to navigate the daily grind became the inspiration for today’s post. View Post

I decided it was time to give my skincare cupboard an overhaul and stock up on some exciting products that I haven’t tried before. Some things are from brands I already know and love plus a couple of new discoveries that I am excited to introduce. I haven’t been using anything for very long so this is more of a first impressions and I’m pleased to say – so far, so good. View Post

It’s crazy to think just a couple of weeks ago I was wandering through the streets of Valencia wearing shorts and a t-shirt. The flight from here is around two hours yet it felt so far away from chilly, autumnal Germany. The architecture is stunning and what I loved most is that the city has a beach. In Spain most places shut down mid afternoon so the locals can take a siesta and escape from the heat. Dinner starts late and the overall atmosphere is laid back with lot’s of outdoor restaurants and places to drink in the evening. Just like my recent London Photo Diary I took photo’s using my iPhone as I wandered through the historic city. View Post
