Why I hate being ill

With the temperature going below zero, it is officially flu time – I have recently joined the army of people who sneeze and blow their noses all day long. Yikes!

When I was younger, getting ill felt like a holiday – you don’t have to go to school, get to watch cartoons all day, eat in bed, and when you come back to school you can easily slack off some homework for a day or two: ‘Sorry I was ill’.

Now that I am an adult I absolutely hate being ill. Why? For obvious reasons:

It’s gross.

Motivation and Inspiration Day

Hello and Happy New Year!

Today is Motivation and Inspiration Day, which is timed perfectly to talk about keeping up with the New Year’s resolutions.

The hangover is gone, so it’s time to get motivated and inspired for the coming year. I would like to share my resolutions with you. These aren’t the practical ones (I have a long list of them!), these are to keep my head up and stay motivated.

Don’t take yourself too seriously. No one else does. Relax, breath and only compare yourself to your past self. Continue reading “Motivation and Inspiration Day”

Not so White Christmas

It’s Christmas Eve, and there is no snow. I’m not shocked or surprised at all – it’s to be expected – I live in England. 😀  Usually, I’m super jealous of my family and friends in Estonia – they tend to get a beautiful, White Christmas. Not this year though! No one seems to have a White Christmas this year – is it a sign of global warming or did the seasons get shifted?

I’ve learnt to adjust to a ‘green’ Christmas and feel the festivities from the Christmas tree, decorations and music around me… But I would definetely give up half of my presents for some snow!

Have a wonderful Christmas and fingers crossed for snow (not going to happen!) 🙈

Stress Awareness Day – 7 tips to reduce stress

Are you feeling irritable or withdrawn? Are you under a lot of pressure from your boss? Do you feel like you deserve a glass of wine after work?
Unless you’re a lazy alcoholic, you are probably stressed.

This year’s theme is ‘Employee wellbeing as a worthwhile investment in your business’, so let’s talk about tips to help you dealing with stress at work.

1. Organise your work.
This way you can plan and prioritise the tasks to ensure that you are in control of your work. People generally get stressed if things go out of their control, so keep your things in check.

Plan, delegate and be willing to compromise. Avoid trying to control the uncontrollable. Continue reading “Stress Awareness Day – 7 tips to reduce stress”

Is it time for The Apprentice to evolve?

I always wait for The Apprentice with a lot of anticipation, I have a very soft spot for it. You might say that it’s rubbish, that the candidates are stupid and the show is boring, and that’s your right. But when others enjoy watching Made in Chelsea and religiously follow the Kardashians, I choose TV shows that make me think about what I would have done in specific situations. I’m more interested in finding out who got fired rather than who slept with who.

Dishwasher appreciation post

Dear Dishwasher,

You have no idea how much I appreciate you in my life! I happened to live with one of your relatives for a couple of months, but apart from that time, for the last couple of years I’ve been good friends with the sink,  sponge and Fairy liquid.

Now, things have changed. Now I have you. Now I don’t have to worry about ruining my nails and I save up so much time!

You are the best addition to this house, and you are truly now a part of our family.

Emmys Red Carpet #wouldyouwearit

After last night’s Emmy ceremony, my Facebook feed is dominated by red carpet photos.

Some celebrities look amazing – some, on the other hand, don’t.

I strongly believe that the dress could be state of art, but if you don’t have the body to pull it off, you WILL look horrendous.
So I rounded up top 3 dresses I would only dream of wearing and 3 dresses that I wouldn’t wear even if I got paid for it. Let’s start with the worst:

3 Emmy Red Carpet Dresses I would not wear

Nazanin Boniadi always looks absolutely gorgeous, but I am not keen about her dress. I find the shapes weird, and for a flat-chested girl like me, this dress would be a total nightmare. Continue reading “Emmys Red Carpet #wouldyouwearit”
