I used to be a voracious reader before I started blogging – quite often I would have 2 or 3 books on the go. It wasn’t unusual for me to walk up the road reading, read at the gym, and I would be perfectly happy eating dinner in a restaurant on my own with a book. I loved the escapism and peace it gave me… and I want that back in my life. My Kindle doesn’t count – I want REAL books. Look out for me in your local cafe soon, reading away and unaware of everything going on- I can’t wait.
You’d think that remembering to wear sunscreen every day would be easy – but I just always seem to forget! Given that I very rarely wear hats, and that I am addicted to the sun, this isn’t a good thing at all. This year, I’m keeping a sunscreen in my makeup bag, one in my handbag, AND one in my toddler’s kindy bag so I have no excuses.
I never thought I’d hear myself saying this, because I’ve always had a sweet tooth – always. I just love the taste way too much. I’m getting around this by choosing to drink the new Pepsi Next, which has 30% less sugar than regular Pepsi, yusss! It’s sweetened with Stevia, which is a natural sweetener, so it still tastes gooood. Give it a try – you’ll love it!
Remember having penpals when you were little? I had so many, and there was nothing more exciting than receiving REAL letters, cards and treats in the actual mail. Trust me, I love everything digital, but an email just isn’t the same as a cute handwritten note. It’s a wee bit more effort- but so worth it. Share the love with this beautiful stationery from A Beautiful Mess.
As I said above, I do love being in the digital age, and believe me, I LOVE my job. It truly is everything I’ve always dreamed of doing. But it’s also incredibly easy to spend far too much time online working when I should be relaxing with my loved ones. This year I’m going to attempt to switch off at 6pm (gulp)- we’ll see how that goes!
