Welcome to the Blog
The headline is; if you begin to hate your job, feel less capable and feel completely exhausted the likelihood is that you are experiencing burnout.
Pleasure is an act of rebellion, so on this International Orgasm Day I invite you to rebel and discover female led brands who are looking out for you.
If you’ve ever had the misfortune of engaging in an abusive relationship at work, at home, with a friend or romantically you’ll know all about mitigation, even though you may not have put a name to it before.
I am looking at you, fellow perfectionists. It’s time to call out the behaviours holding you back and see how you can put a stop to your perfectionist standing in your way.
How sexism reinforces the habit of saying “yes” or “maybe” to things you don’t want to do Everyday sexism reinforces the status quo that it is in fact a man’s world.
Self-sabotage: how you can nip it in the bud using these three techniques We’ve all done it, listened to that little voice in our heads that constantly reminds us of our doubts, fears and worries.

A quick 4 steps to the ultimate Sunday indulgence My Sunday morning bathing ritual is one I look forward to every day of the week. It’s such a treat because I get to really pamper myself.
Before lockdown I never really had much time on my hands. I’ve always been busy and when I have found an iota of time to relax I will undoubtedly be plotting against myself, in some shape or form, to become busy once more.
Imposter Syndrome affects almost 70% of the UK population at some stage in their life, which is a pretty shocking figure, really. I know I myself have suffered terribly with feeling horrifically insecure, so although the figure is shocking I can’t say I’m that surprised.

Apparently, everybody has gone through stages of hating their body. As a collective we're told that to a degree, it's normal to feel degrees of self loathing.
