Spring Cleaning

Lately I’ve been clearing my closet, like massively. I’ve talked about having a clearout  and also the fact that I’m just gaining weight… Lack of space, a change in body shape and if I’m honest, a bit of a change in style as well, are prompting me to shed clothes and accessories like there is no tomorrow. I am really struggling each morning to put outfits together and sometimes I feel like getting a flame thrower and just starting from 0 again…

Just this weekend and after a few weeks of Spring cleaning, I ditched five bin bags full of stuff and it was very liberating. The reality is, a lot of my clothes really don’t fit anymore and while it would be great to be able to go shopping, I really can’t afford to buy new clothes at the moment (I’m going travelling soon) . When Joe Blogs contacted me about a blogging competition to win £1000 worth of Yumi dresses, I jumped at the opportunity. I have a couple of dresses from the brand and they’re usually so cute, that I wouldn’t really mind adding a few more to my closet and as I need attire that fits me,  getting a whole new wardrobe would be amazing. I already picked my favourites and everything! The weather i also changing and is calling for lighter pieces, for that Summery feeling and these do just the trick.

Why you should be happy at work – and how to.

We spend most of our waking lives at work. For some people, it might not be the best time of their lives and most people would prefer not having to work (there’s a reason why it’s called work, not fun), there are certainly things that companies can do to make the time spent at work more enjoyable.

Move your ass! If you work in an office, chances are that you spend most of your day sat on your bum. They now say that sitting is the new smoking, as the effects of sedentarism can be terrible for one’s health. If that is your case, I would suggest to get up as much as possible. Even if it’s just a trip to the printer, the loo, making a cup of tea or if you your in my office, a game of ping pong.

Last week I was invited by British Gas to attend the Grand Designs Live show at the ExCel Centre in London, they were one of the main sponsors. I have to say that as a person who only watches TV on Netflix, I haven’t watched the show all that many times, but as I usually like a bit of home decorating (or at least watching other people do it), I thought it could be something interesting. For those not based in the British Isles or who watch even less TV than me, Grand Designs is a TV show from Channel 4, where you can see people building, rebuilding, redecorating (and everything else in between) their homes.

There were a lot of things to see. I spent a total of 2 hours meandering through the corridors and saw a few interesting and eye-catching things, which I hope you will enjoy looking at too.
