RECENT READS // MAY

I’m seriously impressed by the sheer number of books that I’ve made my way through this month. Well, I was, until I checked out #bookstagram and realised that reading five books in one month (six, if you include a beta read!) is child’s play compared to my online friends who power into double digits onContinue reading “RECENT READS // MAY”

I LIVED MY DAY ACCORDING TO MY STAR SIGN

My relationship with horoscopes is a little weird. On one hand, I’m totally a Virgo and a lot of my personality traits match up with my star sign. On the other hand, I’m a complete cynic, scoffing whenever I’m reading a weekly horoscope, wondering how can they be true when they aim to serve aContinue reading “I LIVED MY DAY ACCORDING TO MY STAR SIGN”

RECENT READS // APRIL

The weather here has been snap-frozen like a bag of peas – by Sydney standards, anyway – which means that it’s the perfect time of year to snuggle up inside with cups of tea and cute, cosy pyjamas.

Suffering from burnout at some point is normal, but should it be? After all, it can be prevented. What is burnout?

It’s a result of chronic workplace stress that is characterised by feelings of exhaustion, increased negativity about work, andContinue reading “Are you suffering from burnout?”

A Day In My Life: Anne Novek

I can’t be the only one who is obsessed with those ‘A Day in My Life’ videos on YouTube. Surely, out of all the thousands of viewers these videos get, there has to be someone else who is willing to admit that they LOVE getting an insight (even if it is an edited one) intoContinue reading “A Day In My Life: Anne Novek”
