Decompress

Walking In Woods

It seems to have become the norm to talk about how stressed we are, how none of us have the time to catch up…let me just check my calendar for a month from now….how we’re overwhelmed by all the things we have to do.  Did you know over 500,000 people are suffering frorm work-related stress, depression or […]

Empties Close Up 3 June 2018

It feels like forever and a day since I’ve gathered all my empties in one place, I started to remember why, the clutter!  Hence this post, I felt the need to declutter!  It’s been quite cathartic to finish up some of these products, they seem to have been lurking for far too long.

Bujo Weekly Close Up

I’ve talked about my Bullet Journal before.  It’s very much all about function above form, I use my bullet journal for work, life and blog/youtube.  Also, I’m not particularly wonderful at making it pretty, or maybe I just don’t spend the time practising? Who knows?  Either way, I need a very functional bullet journal.
