Motivation Monday #3

My lifestyle is pretty busy, I work full time, run my blog which gets busier everyday, like to socialise and go to the gym. Within that I still need to find 15 hours a week to study towards my Psychology degree with the Open University. This often means giving up my weekends and saying ‘no’ to fun days out with friends. It takes a lot of self discipline, so this quote is quite apt for me. Just recently I’ve found my motivation waning a little, especially when it’s sunny outside. So when I feel like that, I just tell myself…

Aston Martin Owners Club at Hever Castle

Hey Peaches,  This weekend I was lucky enough to be invited to the Aston Martin Owners Club event at Hever Castle. Unfortunately I am not an owner of one of these beauties myself but we had a lovely day soaking up the sunshine and looking at these fantastic cars. We even got to sit in a few, which I was very excited about. The castle is also very interesting as it was Anne Boleyn’s childhood home, so we had a stroll through the castle and around the beautiful gardens. It was definitely the hottest day of the year so far, and even…

Amigurumi To-Do List

Hey Peaches,  Hope you are all having a great week! My apologies for not being around much, it’s been a busy week with two work nights out and an essay due in, I have been a busy bee. With the little spare time I have had I have been teaching myself ‘Amigurumi’, this is the Japanese word for small stuffed toy and is quite a big thing in the crochet world. A few of my friends are having babies/have children so I thought I would learn to make them some little cuties. I am even thinking of opening an Etsy…

Motivational Monday #2

 This is a favourite quote of mine, and something I will always say to myself if I’m faced with a difficult situation. It is so easy to make a bigger deal out of something than necessary and spend so many hours worrying and feeling frustrated, which can really easily be avoided. If I think back to my life a year ago, my situation was completely different. I had a different job that I hated and was living in between two houses and feeling quite lost as a person in what I wanted from life. Now a year down the line so much has…
