A couple weeks ago I had an idea come, one that thought how it might be to send 1,000 tiny pieces of love (and love notes) out into the universe before the year was out.Read More
I was scrolling through Instagram when I accidentally swiped to the side, you know the side that brings up your camera and immediately shows you - you.
Lying on my bed wearing just the lightest of make up in this summer sun, I saw my face and all it’s markings.Read More
You know you have those days where you just seem to get up, do a bunch of (not really that interesting/exciting) stuff, tick some things off your to do list, eat dinner then go to bed before getting up to do what feels like the same again the next day?Read More
Before my guy had his accident our original plan was to move to Cardiff, save save save, then apply for immigration to New Zealand to start our cool new life together.
When his accident happened, we were like... 'Errrrrrrrrr, what next??'Read More
A couple years ago I started designing some cool tee’s, and when it came to packaging them up I knew...Read More
My guys not much of a writer or sharer of 'personal stuff' (he'd much rather put a brave face on, crack a smile, a laugh or a joke), yet today he wrote this...
A story of his I never would have told yet I'm proud he shared, because you never know who's (quietly) going through their own stuff, with their own brave face on.Read More
You know sometimes you just feel all foggy/funky/what-the-heck-should-I-do-with-my-life about stuff... And while you're not exactly happy with where you are right now, you're also not entirely sure if you know what you really do want next..?Read More
Yesterday went a little like this...
5AM // Spot a text from my guy (who was 'sleeping' next door for the night) sent 30 minutes before. A photo of him looking beyond tired/stressed/wondering what the heck to do with himself.
Go next door, give him a cuddle. Remind him he's loved and agree this is the unfairest thing in the whole world, because it really is. So far as much as he's needed/wanted to, he's not slept. It's the pain. Always the pain.Read More
Yesterday my guy had good intentions of getting up early and smashing his way through a whole bunch of work.
The getting up early part was done, but then he ended up not so well by the afternoon so he spent it in the bathroom (while replying to what emails he could).Read More
Last year Julia Jackson wrote her first book, Love Your Body, The 7 Day Challenge to Love Your Food, Your Body and Your Life.Read More
To say "I had the BEST TIME EVER..." working with the girls over at Project Love would be a great big understatement. They were a blast, and from it, we created this...Read More
Last week I had a coaching call with a client.
It was a one off call (something I don't normally do). She was struggling with how to move her business forward, with how to slot all the pieces into place and actually launch it.Read More
3 years ago I wrote a post, the first about me and my guy and his accident.
I was *SO* nervous hitting publish. How I'd be seen, how he'd react.
Yet that post opened the doors to the biggest wave of kindness and love and support I've ever received, and in a way, that wave saved me, and him.Read More
Yesterday I asked myself a question...
“What would you do it you felt truly supported?”Read More
I see a lot of Self Care lists floating around, mostly filled with ideas like...
Going for a walk.
Drinking a green smoothie.
Having a bubble bath.Read More
I want to love my body again.
I can barely look at it right now, and what I've done to it.
After years of feeling ashamed of how I looked - larger and softer than felt natural for my frame, I started to love me, to take care of me, eating good foods (mindfully) and finding exercise I loved.
It saw me find a body I loved too - one that finally felt like 'me'.Read More
