Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained

There’s never been a truer saying. I decided that it was time for me to live by that and I wanted you to know. My blogs all about being real, and this is me showing you who I am. I am now following my dreams and venturing out on my own. What am I? A lone solider, an entrapenuer or just a bloody idiot. Either way, it’s a done deal. I never thought I would be saying that, never mind a few months after getting married. I feel so free. I create my own well being and the sky is the limit on what I do. It was a big step for me to take. I had a lot of things to take into consideration like, my home & being able to pay the bills. As well as making sure I’m not missing out on life by not earning some sort of income. Thankfully, I had a lot of support for doing this. It’s so much easier to see a plan coming together when you have someone to …

A Daily Struggle: ‘But what will they think?!’

Last week I posted a picture on my Instagram stories with a poll. I wasn’t having a good day and I felt I was a bit lost with what I was doing with my life and I asked if anyone ever felt the same, and it got 20+ responses for ‘Yes‘. It got me thinking. How much of your life do you spend ( waste ) worrying about other people’s opinion on your life? Honestly, I probably spend the majority of mine. Any decision I make or idea I have always comes with another thought; ‘But what will they think?‘. Social media obviously has a massive role to play in this but even outside of it there is so much judgement. I don’t know about you, but I feel very pressured to have the right job, wear the right clothes or have an amazing house etc etc. All the things that you think will make people proud of you or admire you. Should it matter if someone makes £15k a year or if someone makes …

The Famous Gleneagles

Christmas has now been and gone for another year and its time for life to slow back down to a normal pace (hopefully). We’ve both been lucky enough to have some time off over the festive period and feel very well rested for the New Year. Although, I am back to work tomorrow for a short shift we didn’t let that dampen our day and decided on a very spontaneous trip to Gleneagles Hotel & Spa. I’ve been before for afternoon tea and a quick look around but somehow today felt much better. From the moment we got in the car I was so chilled out. Which, for me is unusual as I am such a bloody freak when it comes taking trips out of the blue! Is there a name of that? Compulsive Planner perhaps? Let me know. The only thing that disappointed me was that there was no snow. The further away from our house we got, and the closer to the hotel it disappeared bit by bit. Nevertheless it was a BEAUTIFUL …

Instagram: A love hate relationship

Instagram, one of the most popular social networking platforms for bloggers, businesses, models and photographers. You can reach out to millions of people worldwide with one photograph, amazing. But, I cant help but feel torn between loving Instagram and hating it. I love to share things with people like ideas I have or things I like and I also like to see what other people like and love and gain ideas. However, it’s not all rainbows and daisies. It can be manipulated to another level you couldn’t even possibly imagine. Like any social media you can make your life look like one thing when really it is the complete opposite. In a society that has sky high percentages of teenage (and adult) depression and social anxiety you can’t help but think it is the root of the problem. For most, your feed is filled with unrealistic looking girls (or men) wearing things you can’t afford or going places you could only dream of. No wonder we are depressed. And to top it off, most of them get …

A Womens Struggle.

  Hello Strangers! I can’t believe its been so long since I last posted anything on here. I stumbled across it when I was on the laptop and forgot how much work I have put into my blog and felt incredibly sad. Infact, I think I neglected it because I worried too much about what others thought of me. Anyway, a lot has changed since I last posted. I have my own house with Ross and we have had two career changes. All for the better may I add. I had a thought recently and have been struggling for a little while now and wondered how many other women feel the same… I am constantly torn between being an independent, successful business women and a comfortable, supportive, house proud wife to be. Instagram is one of the biggest reasons for this. Everyday I seen bloggers, business women and general successful women and I get a horrible feeling in the pit of my stomach. I want that. I constantly find myself goggling ‘how to make money …
