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”

How I Overcome Burnout

Last week I wrote about burnout and interesting it was to compare countries and their workplace culture with the amount of stress that workers were feeling. My hometown of Sydney came in at number 11 on the list and I have both experienced and seen burnout at work. While burnout is often caused by aContinue reading “How I Overcome Burnout”

Are you suffering from burnout?

Suffering from burnout at some point is normal, but should it be? After all, it can be prevented. What is burnout? Burnout has (relatively) recently been registered with the World Health Organisation’s International Classification of Diseases. 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”

My New Year Netflix Binges

For some, the New Year is all about getting back into work and focusing on your goals. For me, the New Year is my busiest time at work and I find myself turning to Netflix for a bit of relaxation. As an author, I tend to pull inspiration from everywhere, but binging TV shows canContinue reading “My New Year Netflix Binges”

MY INTENTIONS FOR 2021

If there’s any month to focus on yourself, it’s January. It’s that fresh-start-new-year-new-you vibe that makes you want to assess yourself, where you are now and where you want to be. I’m not big on making New Years’ resolutions because if there is something I want to change, I don’t want to wait until aContinue reading “MY INTENTIONS FOR 2021”

Recent Reads // December

December was full on. There was Christmas, birthday parties, end of year work and a bout of the stomach flu to keep me either super busy or bed-ridden. There was zero in-between. I started quite a few books and audiobooks this month, but with the craziness going on in and around me, I only finishedContinue reading “Recent Reads // December”

What I’m Grateful For In 2020

It’s been a year like no other. Literally. 2020 brought some unprecedented stuff that we wouldn’t wish on our worst enemies. There were fires and floods and then COVID-19, changing the way we do everyday things and creating a ‘new normal’ which will never actually be normal. Even though this year has been a massiveContinue reading “What I’m Grateful For In 2020”

Rise and Shine // My Morning Routine

I’m secretly (or now not-so-secretly) fascinated by other people’s lives. I love finding out what people who aren’t me or my family do every day – especially in the morning. There is a lot of hype around having a great morning routine to make you successful. In fact, if you Google morning routines, you’ll findContinue reading “Rise and Shine // My Morning Routine”

How Working From Home Has Made Me Comfortable

The other day, I did something amazing. I put on jeans. No one was coming over. I wasn’t leaving the house. No photographs were being taken. And I still put on jeans. Okay, they were jeggings. But the fact that they are skin tight and have three buttons and zip makes it more than count.Continue reading “How Working From Home Has Made Me Comfortable”
