Behind the Desk - Massive Life Updates! Moving! Job! Graduating Uni + More


I always feel like I’ve had a semi-quiet month but then I look back and I’m like woah hold up did I really do all those things?!


Yeah another one like that because this month I went to Sydney, attended THREE concerts, attended the YouTube creator day, have been a busy bee at work / with my own company and also having something HUGE in the works.

Not only that but I'll be moving this week and graduating University shortly - it's all happening.

So strap in because I’m going to fill you in on each of these awesome things going on...


Moving House
So the biggest thing currently going on in my life is that I am moving house. My boyfriend and I are really excited to get into the new place and set everything up. I'm going with a modern Scandinavian décor theme with light woods, creamy whites, variations of grey with pops of light pink and rose gold. I will definitely be keeping you updated with the progress and showing you awesome home / décor finds as I come across them and show you how I decorate the new place.

Why You Should Take Yourself on Sushi Dates


I went through a stage towards the end of last year where I really wanted to boost my confidence. I found the thing that made me feel most confident was being independent and what worked best for me was spending time on my own doing my own thing.


My experience was the more I did on my own, the more capable I felt and this really boosted my confidence. It’s extremely empowering knowing that you don’t need anyone’s help to get things done and that you can make yourself happy.

Which is why I’m saying - you should take yourself on more sushi dates.

Not only because salmon is like…seriously good for you.

But because you should do the things that make you happy. You are in control of your own happiness so it is pretty much up to you…no actually, it is quite literally your RESPONSIBILITY to make sure you do the things that make you happy.

4 Weight Loss Hacks - Tips For Losing Weight


The saying “you never regret a Pilates class” is true on many levels. When you get to class, you pat yourself on the back for making it. When you’re in class, the endorphins kick in and you feel great. Lastly, nothing beats that post workout feeling of accomplishment.


So this post is going to talk about “weight loss tips” but the plot twist is that they are achievable and sustainable long-term habit changes. Not only does this result in losing weight but it avoids yo-yo dieting where your weight will go up and down.

Most importantly, it’s less about the weight loss and more about the mental shifts of perception that encourage a happier and healthier life.

It’s true that most of weight loss in a mental process and what is holding you back are your belief systems and bad habits that are caused due to limitations you are putting on yourself. Don’t expect any extreme dieting tips in here, if you don’t already know my stance then check out my article about why diets suck and are bad for your health.

How To Get Organised - Things to Do at the Start of Every Month

I know that saying this is going to solidify that I’m an absolute nerd..like those of you sitting on the fence thinking “she’s a bit weird but I don’t know maybe she’s still cool” will now have a clear answer. I’m basically the nerd emoji in human form.


But…nothing makes me happier than a new month. Purely because of the little nerdy things I do like I get to set my new monthly intentions and goals, I start a new monthly budget spreadsheet, a new monthly horoscope is released... and is that the smell of a fresh start and opportunity in the air?

Yep see. Weird. BUT let me tell you I’ve got a few hacks and routines for the start of each month that set you up with a clear direction for success, productivity and getting closer to kicking those goals you have.

Kmart Makeup Organisation - Cheap Makeup Storage

 

You don’t walk into Kmart and only buy the things from your list…you walk into Kmart and let Kmart tell you what you need.

Kmart is one of those magical places where you go in to buy a new dog bed but walk out with a dog bed, new bikini, pair of shoes, makeup bag, 2 new sets of workout gear, skincare products and copious amounts of stationary… for under $100.

So I guess what I’m trying to say here is that Kmart is basically heaven….mmm yep definitely heaven.

By the way this is really not sponsored…I just love Kmart. Don’t we all... So let’s get into these affordable makeup storage options from Kmart

They say a huge secret to success is getting good quality sleep. Although it does matter how much sleep you get, the quality is also seriously important and I have some tried and tested tips to ensure you get the best sleep of your life.


The best example of how important sleep is for your body is how you are after a long night of drinking. You know how you can wake up hungover and feel terrible?! It’s not just the dehydration from the alcohol but also that your body was unable to reach a deep sleep because of the way the substance affected your brain and body.

This highlights just how important getting good quality sleep is to how productive you are every day, mood regulation, energy levels and mental clarity.

In this post I have some really simple, practical and effective tips that take your night time routine from scrolling through Instagram then struggling to get to sleep for 30 minutes to blissful, relaxed LIGHTS OUT sleep.

Let's get into it...
