Hey friends, hope you're all well. Anybody else slowly melting from this crazy heatwave we've got going in the UK?! I have some life news this week - I’ve just started a new job! It’s a secondment within a similar department but it could be a great opportunity for now and the future. As a… Continue reading #10 – The Climb
In my late teens/early twenties I was THE Queen of procrastination. I was so bad I once wrote a whole University essay the night before it was due because I'd put it off that long. Have you ever tried Harvard Referencing at 6am on no sleep? I do not recommend it...I would put off school… Continue reading #9 – Productivity 101… by a self-confessed procrastinator
I love books, always have, always will. Romance, Mystery, Historical, Court Room Thriller...give me a good book and I'm happy. Oh, the joy I feel reading a good book - and if I'm on holiday laying by the pool it's even better! Jaqueline Wilson saw me through my early years, followed by Louise Rennison (any… Continue reading #8 – For The Love of Books
The last nine years of my life are filled with many, many memories that I will look back on forever. Some good, some not so good, some plain tragic but all together they make up the decade of my life in which I consistently spent trying to “get my shit together”. I'm proud to report… Continue reading #7 – 30 Before 30!
This Book Challenge starts with a little story. About 4 years ago I decided to look up the “Top Ten Books of All Time” and, to my shame, I hadn’t read any of them. So I decided to buy all ten and promised to read them next. However, they ended up on my ever growing… Continue reading #6 – 2020 Book Challenge (and book reviews!)
I’m one of those people that gets excited by New Years. A fresh start, a do-over an opportunity to have “the best year yet”. But we’re fast approaching July and I have to say this is definitely not a good year. I mean obvious global pandemic aside that is... I’m a list girl, I live… Continue reading #5 – Is Everyone Moving Forward Without Me?
The best way that I can describe adulthood is to remember what it was like coming home from a night out, several vodkas in, trying to get to your bedroom in the pitch black without waking the house up. Adulthood is making decisions without full vision, taking a best guess and hoping for a positive… Continue reading #4 – Are We All Lost Stars?
I'm going to go out on a limb here and say we've all been there - feeling like you're experiencing disappointment after disappointment. Having a run of bad luck, like the world isn't on your side or you're taking one step forward and, without fail, two steps back? I know I have. Truthfully that's how… Continue reading #3 – What’s luck got to do with it?
2020 will go down in history as the year that was dominated by a Global Pandemic. Lets not beat around the bush, Covid-19 (or otherwise known as Coronavirus) is horrendous. It is the worst National and Global health crisis of our generation and I can only pray it will stay that way. At time of… Continue reading #2 Surviving Lockdown Alone
Hi...Let me introduce myself. I'm Stacey, and today I turned 29. In my quest to make the last year of my twenties "count" I've decided to document the next year of my life. A few months ago I was having a conversation with a colleague about personality traits in comparison with star signs (no judgement… Continue reading #1 – The First One
