Why I'm Focusing On My Blog In 2020

Ok, I know this happened a little while ago, but I wont my first blogging award! A day at the Dead Canary led me coming away with the 'Best Health Blog Post' at the House 21 Awards way in December (I say way back as it feels like centuries since December was here)

How I've Gained New Inspiration From A Camera

I've always said in the past that I would always rely and trust my iPhone to be in charge of my photography for my blog and Instagram content. Well...I kind of cheated on my iPhone and bought a camera. A Canon G7 Mark II to be exact.

I've always struggled with my photography in the past, I'm constantly relying on Pinterest to give me photo inspo on a daily basis as my brain is completely devoid of any creativity. Well, in the photography department anyway. Is there an area of your brain for that?

New Year's Resolutions - Why Do We Still Do Them?

I'm writing whilst sweating my boobs off on the recumbent bike in my local gym. It's my first gym visit of 2020 and the gym is unsurprisingly but surprisingly busier than usual. If that makes any sense to you all. There's a hella lot of new faces to get to know in the gym today, 90% of them I'm pretty sure made it their resolution to go to the gym. Which is fine, good on them in fact. It'll be interesting to see how long it lasts for them, but I hope they do stick it out and keep to their New Year's promise.

Whilst trying to keep my legs going which are now in agony, I realise that we're halfway into January and only just starting a new decade (yep, I still find it hard to believe too). Now, what were your New Year's resolutions? See how I've used past tense there - WERE not ARE.

People/Things I'm Thankful For

"A thankful heart is a happy heart"
I'm a great believer in showing gratitude at any given moment. From thanking someone for holding the door open for you to being grateful to someone for going to a nerve-wracking hospital appointment with you, there's always something to be thankful for.

2010 - 2019: How I've Evolved

Ok, we're a few days into 2020 and I keep finding it strange and surreal that we've just entered a new DECADE. It just seems a little hard to believe! At the start of this decade, I was in college, trying to keep up with assignment deadlines and my biggest life crisis being if I forgot to take my headphones with me anywhere.

Nowadays, a life crisis is not being able to add money to my Help To Buy ISA account or deciding whether to wear a coat or not when I go out. How times have changed. This is my point - we evolve over time, it doesn't take years or decades. It can take as little as weeks or even days for something to happen or you step out of your comfort zone. We grow and mature with age, we learn new things and we make mistakes, but we also learn from them too.

The Ivy, Cardiff

Before I begin, I was never asked by The Ivy to write this post, I just wanted to write about my experience there.

Ok, now the legalities are out of the way, I can relax and casually write the night away.

So yep, I visited the Ivy in Cardiff. Not exactly headline news, but I'd appreciate if you carried on reading.
