Why I Reinstalled Facebook + The Facebook Groups You Need To Join!

facebook groups

In the last year or so I’ve had a pretty up and down relationship with Facebook. On the one hand, I love how Facebook allows you to communicate with literally anyone in the world, no matter where you are. It was the perfect social media tool for me to keep in touch with all my family and friends back in England when I lived in New Zealand as I was able to contact them literally whenever I wanted.

However, earlier this year, there was quite a bit of drama circulating on my Facebook and I just couldn’t be bothered to be involved in any of the drama and pettiness. I deleted the app back in April and I’ve only just recently reinstalled it.

I had no intention of reinstalling it whatsoever but I found that I was gaining quite a bit of referral traffic from Facebook to my blog and so I decided to log back into the app to see what was going on…

If you’ve followed me on these parts of the internet for a while then you’ll have no doubt seen me talk about Matt a lot. Today marks mine and Matt’s 18 month anniversary and also one year since we moved in together so for someone as sentimental as I am, it’s a pretty big deal. Unfortunately, Matt’s actually in Latvia this weekend so we’ll be celebrating next week when he’s home but today’s post is going to be centred around moving in/living with your other half.

I did a post way back when we’d first moved in together but today’s post is all about the signs to look out for to show that you’re ready to live together; enjoy!

53 Self Care Ideas For When You’re Feeling Burnt Out

The last few weeks have been pretty busy for me; (in the most amazing way) I’ve had so many incredible opportunities and so much work to do but there was a point where I was just trying to do too much and I sort of just ‘burnt out’. Now, don’t get me wrong, I don’t plan on slowing any of my projects down or working less harder, but I am planning to make more time for myself, and pay more attention to my self care routine in particular.

In today’s society and particularly in the blogging world, self care has become quite a phenomenon but instead of treating it like just another trend, I really think we should take it more seriously. That’s why today’s blog post is packed full of ideas of ways that you can take better care of yourself, especially if you’re beginning to feel burnt out.

mondays

Ah Mondays. The one day of the week that the entire population seems to dread. When you’re laying in bed on a Sunday night and you suddenly feel almost nauseous at the prospect of going to work for another five days straight.

Fortunately for me, I’ve never struggled too much with the ‘Monday blues’, (Tuesdays on the other hand; don’t even get me started. I cannot stand Tuesdays for some reason). However, there are certain instances when I feel the dread creep up so I decided to put together this post to help you (and me) for those times when you need just a little extra encouragement to get out of bed on a Monday morning.
