Why everyone should have the occasional digital detox

But what is a digital detox you ask?

A digital detox is when you completely cut out anything and everything digital/techy from your life. This is mainly your smartphone, iPad and laptop. I don’t know about you, but I feel like I’ve become so addicted and reliant on my devices that they’ve become an extension of my arm.

Don’t get me wrong, I love the digital world. How could I not? I’ve been brought up with it and now it’s a huge part of my business life, plus it’s allowed me to do freelance work from the comfort of my home, in local coffee shops and wherever I am in the world. But I do feel like it’s causing a lot of people to lose out on more meaningful, face-to-face interaction. I can’t even begin to describe to you how important actually speaking and interacting with real humans is.

New home – The current crushes

Welcome to my new blog mini-series! All about my new found love for all things interior.

I’m not going to lie, since we moved into our new home I’ve become a little bit obsessed with buying bits and pieces for every room. Now I know the big furniture and paint is important…..however, and I’m blaming my mother for this, I can’t seem to help buying the finishing touches before the furniture.

I wanted my first post not to be about the work we’re doing because quite frankly, at the moment the house is a tip and we have half a kitchen! I really wanted it to be about all the beautiful, cute and quirky bits I’ve found in some of my favourite stores. So grab a cup of coffee and read on for my current homeware crushes of the moment!

Galentines Day gift guide

Whether you’re in a relationship or not, I’ve always believed it’s super important to look after your gals. Your BFF’s and your soul sisters. These are the girls in your life who you would do anything for, and who would drop everything for you. This is why I’ve decided to do a Galentines Day gift guide instead of regular his or her guide 🙂

I literally have a handful of extremely close girl friends in my life.

I much prefer it this way because it means I can give them all the time and love they deserve. After losing friends last year, due to the fact that I realised they were poisonous friendships, it’s meant that I’ve become even closer with the handful I have now.

First-time buyer survival guide

I’ve read so much in the news recently about the troubles that first-time buyers face.

After buying my first home at the back end of last year, all I can say is yes, it’s super difficult and very stressful, but in the end, it’s worth it. It most definitely came with its difficulties, some which could have been avoided in my opinion. I’m hoping that with my experience I can offer some half decent advice to all you first-time buyers!

My top ways to de-stress

When you reach a certain point in your life, it becomes so apparent how important stress relief is for your body, mind and soul.

Working full time, blogging (almost full time), running a home and trying to keep everyone around me happy can be overwhelming. I’m a damn good overthinker too which doesn’t help! I’ve always struggled with switching off. Switching off from my work, my laptop and updating social media can be a nightmare.
