Yesterday morning I found myself spending way too much mental energy thinking about how utterly crap the train system is. I’ve been delayed twice this week already – 35 mins Tuesday, 15 mins Wednesday… How much I pay a year Vs the quality of the service literally infuriates me beyond belief. Once I stepped back and realised the little internal rage I was having, I decided to focus on something positive instead*. I ended up reflecting on all the people who’ve inspired me this week…

Even now – say we have to leave for an early flight at 4am – I’ll do my make-up (false eyelashes and all!) fresh before bed and sleep in it as…

Last week, Jack and I decided to start making healthy food swaps with the goal of dropping a few pounds before our holiday in December. Now, restricting foods and ‘dieting’ is dangerous territory for me – you might’ve read this post about my experience with disordered eating, which explains things a bit more. By working toward the goal of weight loss, I have to be really careful not to let my old obsessive mindset kick back in and take over. However, we decided not to…
