Thoughts We Have During The Autumn Season

When you think of Autumn, what comes to mind? The crisp air, the colours, the crunchy leaves, the cozy jumpers and cardigans, the gorgeous berry and plum lip colours. Anyone that knows me, knows i love the colder weather. Autumn (and Winter) are my favourite time of year. 

Each season has its perks, but none quite like the fall. It's time to relish the crisp, cool weather this time of year brings. I love spring with its blooming flowers and new life. I love winter for its snowy days and bright starry nights. And I love autumn for its world of colours. The magical time of year between September and December always gives me this warm and fuzzy feeling inside

"It's a new season, a perfect opportunity to do something new, something bold, something beautiful."

Lessons We Can Learn From Being A Dog Owner

On September 2nd, our family rehomed a 7 1/2 year Lhasa Apso called William and he's an absolute sweetheart (he's also got his own instagram account @williamthelhasa). Before William we had a little pug called Benson who we also rehomed and it's safe to say he saved me, in more ways I can describe. I don't think dogs realize how much they complete someone, and to be honest i couldn't imagine never having a dog.

Dogs are a man's best friend (and a woman's too i'd like to add). Living with a doggy companion is arguably one of the best things ever. Dogs are good for your health, keep you company, and are easily the most adorable member of your household. Turns out that we can add “wise sage” to the list of things that makes up your dog. There's nothing like being a pawrent.

Shows (I Love) To Watch On A Rainy Day

As I'm writing this post, it's currently raining in not so sunny England with my little Lhasa Apso snoring away. Like everyone else, i have a TV series addiction. I have somewhat a set genre of shows I'm comfortable watching and some that are a no go for me.

If i'm being honest I like to broaden my horizons when it comes to TV (and film). A rainy day gives you an opportunity to watch some feel good tv series, there’s nothing quite like sitting down with one of your all time favourite TV shows, laughing along to all the lines you’ve heard time and time before but still find so much comfort in them, it’s one of my go to things to do to unwind and relax.

How My Mental Health Has Empowered Me

I struggle with Depression and Anxiety.
Having both of those mental illnesses is a challenge, you're battling with your mind everyday - some days are good and some are bad. They affect people in different ways. I've dealt with depression since i was young.

 We all know empowerment comes from within. If it wasn't for my tough past, the challenges I had to overcome, and the tools I developed to battle through my depression and anxiety I would not be the super empowered woman I am today.
