Beth’s Book Club: The Last 8 Books I Read

Beth’s Book Club: The Last 8 Books I Read

I love reading. At the beginning of the year I vowed that I’d dedicated more time each week to getting lost in a good book. I haven’t upheld that promise as much as I’d like to have done but sharing my reads on Instagram in the form of mini bullet point book reviews each time has spurred me on to pick up another, and the reaction has been great. If I can encourage other people to get reading too then that’s a huge bonus.

Winter Wellness Tips: How to Take Care of Yourself as the Seasons Change

Winter Wellness Tips: How to Take Care of Yourself as the Seasons Change

Really, these are the days when I ought to be giving myself the highest dose of TLC, but usually I forget and by mid-November I can be found swaddled under layers of chunky knitwear, struggling to get out of bed in the morning and yearning for the feeling of sun on my skin. Winter has its perks, namely Christmas, but the impact on my body of late nights, broken routine, alcohol at every turn and chocolate for breakfast takes its toll too.

How Not to Let Instagram Ruin Your Holiday

Usually, the requirements that cause such anguish (to look beautiful in ‘it’ locations with nobody else in the image) are entirely self-imposed and as such if we’re getting upset outside KYND in Bali then it’s entirely our own fault and I think it’s time to add a side serving of reality check to your smoothie bowl order.

Coming Off the Pill: How I Feel Three Months On

Coming Off the Pill: How I Feel Three Months On

A little while ago I shared my decision to cease taking the contraceptive pill in favour of letting my body do it’s thing (whatever that may be). Three months – and four periods – later, I figured an update may be due. Spoiler: I’m not pregnant, I haven’t grown scales and my boobs have not shrunk.

Life Update: Summer in a Nutshell

Life Update: Summer in a Nutshell

Is Summer officially over? I’m not sure. I’m trying to tell myself that the cut off point is when you have to start wearing forty denier tights again – dealing with the inevitable knee-height hanging crotch and ladders from ankle to arse – but I have a sneaking suspicion that really, the end of August signifies the death of summer.

How to Detox your Wardrobe

I don’t know about you, but I have a lot of clothes. I also never have anything to wear. Recently I embarked on a mission to clear out my closet, organise what’s left and then shop with some sort of focus. I thought I’d share my experience with you in the hope that it may be somewhat helpful!

14 Things I’m Loving this Summer

I tend to find that during the Summer months I strip back a little on consumerism, buying things for the sake of it (because it’s cold and shops are warm…) and focus on taking things back to basics.
