As you've read from the title, Patrick and I are engaged! It was a complete surprise for me and done in the perfect way for us. Nothing too showy but all the sentiment and us-ness that there could have been! There was no way I would have said no. I broke down crying, felt sick… Continue reading We got engaged!
Hey guys, just a quick check-in and update... I'm back at work now and so busier than lockdown, duh! I am very anxious, to be honest. No one knows how things are going to work and how successful it’ll be. Plus, I feel like I’m still the new kid, still in a state of discomfort… Continue reading Life & Content Update: As of September…
I have just finished reading Natives by Akala. I listened to it on Audible, where he read the book himself (always better when the author reads their own work if it's non-fiction, especially). I loved it! It was a lot to consume, hence why it took me a while, but he had a down-to-earth way… Continue reading Anti-Racist Book Recs: “Natives” by Akala
Not everyone has the money for books or the time for lengthy reads, but we all can spare time to listen to podcasts and videos that are summing up a lot of what the books are saying. Nothing can REPLACE reading a book, but so far I've seen authors and speakers share their views and black… Continue reading Free podcasts and videos that help with anti-racism (that I’ve listened to or watched)
My good friend (fellow writer and author) and I have been doing a lot of soul-searching in quarantine. Interestingly, we both had the same mindsets going in: "plenty of time to write, woo!" but each (on our own) have come to new realisations that have set us free... Stop writing to publish... As people who… Continue reading Getting Unstuck: My 2020 Writing Manifesto
I loved this book! Simple, review done! Joking aside, this book was unexpectedly great. I bought it because my favourite YouTuber (Kalyn Nicholson) always mentions it. To be honest, I feared it would be some wishy-washy nonsense. Oh, how I was wrong! It was wonderfully written and easy to read, firstly, which is unexpected from… Continue reading Book Review of Sacred Powers: This Book Has Changed Me!
With it now being April, we have moved into the second quarter of the year and Spring to boot. Therefore, this is the perfect time to look back and reflect on a few things... (Read to the end and download a workbook to help guide you through your quarterly review!) How are the resolutions/… Continue reading Quarterly Review and Reflections 2020
As of the time of recording this, I have just finished my first week at my new job! And so, I wanted to give you a life update and talk about how I have been getting on. All with the theme of doing things before you're ready (like a boss!)... Click to play! xx
At the start of this year, I challenged myself to go a month without social media. Because I host a blog and a podcast, I couldn't deactivate these accounts, really, and so my rule was that I couldn't use them for anything other than posting/sharing my content. And so, I deleted the apps from my… Continue reading Why It Quit Social Media in January
I usually do a sort of achievement list at the end of each year. It's a way of patting myself on the back for progressing and achieving and doing good things for myself. But this year hasn't felt so great; I feel I have less to say and share with you guys. So, here's a… Continue reading My Personal List of Good Things From 2019
