Is Uni Necessary? The Argument From Both Sides 
Read If: You don’t know if you want to go to University or you’re thinking of dropping out.
Concept: It recently dawned on me that I was spending almost 40k on my masters. So while I never entertained the argument that Uni wasn't necessary because I truly saw the value I was getting out of it, it is now that I am beginning to understand the other perspective on this. As such, it seemed like an interesting idea to examine the necessity of Uni from both sides. I am going to be explaining the opinion I have had for the past 5 years about University being an essential step (at least for the career path I chose) and my experience with the value I have received from the education.

Read If: You want to land the job of your dreams and revamp your resume.
Concept: So I recently scored my dream marketing job at the start of the year and it all started when I stood out with my resume. The recruitment officer said it was the most impressive resume she has ever seen. Like excuse me, what?! I imagine she sees a fair few a day as a RECRUITMENT OFFICER. I kind of felt like asking what in particular she liked but was too busy patting myself on the back. So I’ve taken to my resume that nabbed me the job with a magnifying glass to pull together some tips that could help you if you are currently curating your resume.

How Gratitude Helps Cure Depression and Anxiety 
Read If: You’re struggling with depression and/or anxiety and want to try something new.
Concept: It might seem like a far-fetched concept to say that depression can be improved or anxiety can be helped by gratitude but it has basis that gratitude is good for your health. The meaning of gratitude put simply is making an active decision to be grateful for the good things in your life rather than focussing on the negative. "The antidote to fear is gratitude.

In this post we are going to run through easy and practical ways you can practice gratitude daily.

How To Avoid Burnout and Stop Feeling Not Good Enough
Read If: No matter how much you achieve, you always feel like you should be doing more. 
Concept: Do you ever have a huge goal in mind? Something so huge that is seems unachievable…until it’s done. Then you just move on to the next thing, the next goal…without acknowledging how you succeeded in reaching the goal you just did or stopping to celebrate your accomplishment. I like to compare this to being on the money bars, swinging from success to success until you eventually fall off in an exhausted heap and have to climb your way back up again (also known as burnout).

How To Get Organised - Things to Do at the Start of Every Month 
Read If: You want to set yourself up with a routine for success, productivity and getting closer to kicking those goals you have. 
Concept: 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?


Why You Should Take Yourself on Sushi Dates 
Read If: You want to become empowered, more independent and self-confident.
Concept: 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.

Let’s Talk About Confidence - Heart to Heart 
Read If: You are struggling with confidence and self-love.
Concept: This year one of my resolutions was to ‘become more confident’, which is a very ambiguous goal to achieve because it makes you ask questions like “what is confidence?” and “how do you even measure confidence?” After having a conversation with the incredible life trainer (and my boyfriends sister), Carly Bell, we realised what a loaded topic “confidence” is – how it means different things to different people, how it can help or hinder your growth / success as a person and most important – how you view yourself and the world. So we decided to sit down and share with you our experience in confidence (or lack thereof) and the kinds of things we do to help us become more confident.

How To Pick Yourself Up When You Feel Unmotivated 
Read If: You constantly ask yourself ‘what’s the point?!’ and struggle to do the things you know you should be doing.
Concept: A vulnerable and honest chat with you…using my genuine real-life examples. I feel like I’m generally a really positive, upbeat person and I think that comes across here on my blog. But, I have down days and times where I lack inspiration, fall off the fitness bandwagon or am simply dealing with feeling a bit “meh”.
