Holiday gifts – a guide to conscious shopping

Jumping on the bandwagon of the Holiday gift guide, I want to give my contribution this year. I’ve already expressed by frustration with consumerism, so don’t expect sensational gift ideas here. This is more of a guide for conscious and meaningful shopping. To know more about conscious shopping please check one of my old articles. This guide DOES NOT contain affiliate link, all views, photos, and unpopular opinions are my own.

I made it through the past 12 months!

Absolutely nobody: “I can’t believe it’s the end of the year! Where is time gone?”

Me: “I do, I worked more hours than I wanted to, missed night sleep, cried, picked my own tears, bought more boxes of antidepressants than ever before! 2021 felt like 5 years long!” The featured image was kindly provided by English Heritage, then all photos and unpopular opinions are my own!

2021 in books – November round up

As the end of the year is approaching, I started the process of reflecting what 2021 meant to me. A proper and throughout blog article will come in mid December. However, I have so much to tell that I decided to post a series of articles to reflect on different aspects of my life, professional and personal growth. DISCLAIMER: The article does not contain affiliated links, photos, views and unpopular opinions are my own!

If you have a poverty mindset, you’ll always be poor!

One of my favourite quotes of all time is “No matter how much money you make, if you have a poverty mindset, you’ll always be poor!”. This is not actually me talking, there is actual research on that. I read a book called “The happiness hypothesis” many years ago when I was coming to realise my chronic depression. Money doesn’t buy happiness. I mean to some extend yes. Once you have your basic needs met, like enough to have a house, pay bills, food and live a comfortable life, other things come into play to “buy” happiness.

Laziness does not exist!

Another article on my blog a week apart from the last one? Unbelieveable, I am on holiday, this is why I’ve got the time for writing. I love this blog so much because it’s part of me, an extension of my life that helps to fulfil my purpose of elevating others. So, I do miss writing regularly but I have to be mindful of my energy and time! Sorry, not sorry! All right, let’s get started. Laziness does not exist by Dr Devon Prince is the title of a book I started reading a few days ago. I got immediately caught up!

A dream day in London!

Yesterday, to conclude the first semester of 2021, I decided to go to one of my fave places in the world: central London. I used to go to the city every couple of months but I reduced the frequency due to covid restrictions. To read about my last trip to London last year, please check here. I literally haven’t left Kent in the last year and I did feel like I needed a change of scene. I waited until my second dose of vaccine to start traveling again and decided to start the adventure from London.

Plastic-free July – July round up!

This is my usual appointment to try to keep consistent with my blogging and commit to writing at least once a month to check up on myself and see how good/bad I did over the month that has just gone. To check up the June update check here. I would strongly recommend this activity because it’s important to be your best cheerledeer and accountability buddy. As queen of investment Tori Dunlap said “A lot of people think that selfcare is bubble baths and a glass of wine but if you don’t deal with the hard questions in your life, you’ll always be unhealthy!”.

Escaping England: planning your Kent staycation

The government just announced that fully vaccinated folks no longer have to quarantine on their way back from holiday. I literally was counting the minutes to book my holiday to Italy and finally see my family after 16 months of pandemic. As many are planning to book their holiday abroad, there is a consistent number of people who don’t trust the government (how to blame them?) or feel uncomfortable with sharing enclosed spaces, public transport for example, with strangers. So, here I am attempting to give some travel recommendations for a staycation in Kent. I didn’t get paid for this article, all unpopular opinions and some pictures are my own. Thanks for keep reading.

Staycation in Kent – An escape England experience!

This is my first attempt to put together a blog article with travel recommendations for a staycation in Kent. I will also try to convince you with my unpopular opinion on why Kent is a lot better staycation than driving 8+ hours to Cornwall and basically do and see the same things! DISCLAIMER: I am not a travel blogger, all pictures and views are my own!
