How Do You Cope? | Let’s Talk About Coping Mechanism, Again

I spoke about coping mechanisms in my most recent post, where I was addressing one particular bad habit that I've developed over the years. While I don't want to get too repetitive here, I'm not quite finished with this topic of conversation. I've been thinking a lot about coping mechanisms, habits, and the things we [...]

Here’s Why You Don’t Need A Side Hustle | Let’s Talk About It

As someone who is interested in self-development, I come across the term 'side hustle' an awful lot. I bet you're in the same position too. Side hustle is a term that refers to a side project or some kind of hobby that will bring in money. It's something a lot of people recommend as a [...]

Planning The Perfect Day | Personal Self – Care

I've talked about self-care a lot on this blog because it genuinely is a topic that means so much to me.

Never Been Heartbroken…? | Love + Life Lessons

What a statement, eh?! Imagine never feeling heartbroken. I don't think there's a person alive right now who hasn't felt this feeling at least once. My first true heartbreak was probably when the pop-sensation band Steps split up in the early noughties, and this pain continued as every band I loved through my childhood took [...]
