Hello! I’m back where I belong – on the blog and creating content again.
The last few months of my life have been an adventure. The best few months of my life, in fact. After unintentionally taking some time out to immerse myself in living in the moment and not feeling the need to document experiences and thoughts for the blog, I’m ready to return to my little corner of the internet and kick off a new year with fresh new content.
Are you ready?
The Ivy has just opened up in the heart of Cheltenham and everyone is talking about it. Let’s just say, date nights don’t get better than this.
I can’t quite keep up with all the new bars and restaurants opening in Cheltenham at the moment. Not that I’m complaining, too much choice is better than no choice at all, right? So when I heard about Babel joining the line up, I jumped at the chance of an exclusive taster evening…
Another week, another date night…
The lovely people at Hollywood Bowl in Cheltenham recently invited myself and some guests to enjoy a night of bowling, dinner and drinks – I was bowled over and said yes, of course.
All in aid of raising money for Action For Charity: Women v Cancer, bloggers and businesses from in and around the Cotswolds came together to sell new and pre-loved fashion items, crafts, food and other offerings at the very first Cotswolds Creative Market.
I’ve never been the girl who buys fresh flowers every week. I’m not particularly great at keeping plants alive (RIP cacti friends), and it’s always much nicer to be sent flowers – don’t you think? There is something special about receiving a beautiful bouquet of blooms, whether it be a ‘thank you’ gesture or just a gift of love.
Recently life has got a lot busier, what with work stepping up a gear or two and then deciding that I would hold a fundraising event in six weeks with no budget (more on that later). My favourite corner of the internet has had to take a back seat for a number of reasons, but as it’s always been my online sanctuary where I can reflect and share experiences, I thought that perhaps it’s about time I talk about something a little more personal.
How I deal with anxiety.
A creative at heart, I’m always eager to try something new. Whether it’s a new skill, hobby or simply learning how on earth to use manual focus on my camera – as long as I can fit it in with my busy lifestyle, I’m keen to try it. As soon as I heard that The Willow Tree in Cheltenham put on a variety of workshops in store, I couldn’t wait to give it a go.
Finding inspiration when you need it most can be a tiresome task. Whether you are a blogger, a teacher or just looking to decorate your home, we can all be struck with a lack of creativity at any given time. It sucks, right?
Many of us sweat the small stuff on a daily basis, forgetting the more important things in life that should concern us. Well, I’ve decided enough is enough – and I’m asking you to join me.
