November 2016 Reads

Tuesday 29 November 2016

It's been a literal age since I shared what I've been reading recently, which is a shame
because over the past lot of months I've read some truly incredible books! 

I might put together a post of my favourite books from 2016 closer to the end of the year, but right now I want to share what I've managed to read this past month. Sadly, I only have the physical copy of one of these books, the others have been read on the Kindle App on my phone, with the intention of buying a physical copy in the near just so happens that I haven't done that yet, oops! 

Rediscovering Beauty with Itty Bitty Book Co.

Thursday 10 November 2016

I find that looking for inspiration can be difficult, even in this world that is saturated with timelines and Pinterest boards filled to the brim with quotes and slogans all designed 
 to keep us inspired & motivated & encouraged.

But, a lot of the time I find that those inspirational quotes fall a little bit flat.
There are too many contradictory quotes on the same boards, 
too many that actually manage to make me feel a little inferior,
a little bit less, if I don't want to #hustle or #girlboss it all the time.

And I'm pretty sure that is the opposite of their purpose!

But I do know how powerful true inspirational quotes can be, how much motivation, positivity, confidence & encouragement they can bring out in each of us, and that is why I want to introduce to you today the Itty Bitty Book Co.  

The Secret Garden & Stormont Estate

Tuesday 8 November 2016

I cannot wrap my head around the fact that we are now a whole week into November.

It's practically Winter, but tell me this: what happened to October?!
I barely remember the last month, to the point where I'm not even really sure it happened.

It feels like only yesterday it was Summer and we were enjoying whatever meagre weather
Northern Ireland has to offer and now it's pretty much Christmas!

Sorry. Is it too soon for Christmas talk?

5 Tips for a productive job search

Looking for a job can be one of the most soul-destroying, mood-shattering 
things on this planet, and it's made even worse if you're unemployed and looking for a job. 

Sometimes it feels hopeless,
it feels pointless, you feel like you're not good enough, or like you're never going to get any job, nevermind one that you actually like!

I know I'm not the only person who feels like this.
