Dear Blog #1



I'm well aware that I haven't posted anything in over 2 weeks, to be honest I haven't really been in the mood. It's weird because I've only just realised that I'm always in this mood, this time of year. 
I would love to blame it on the horrible weather in London (FREEZING) but I think it's deeper than that, and at the moment I'm not quite sure what it is but something needs to give. Quickly lol. 

It's January and I'm already over 2016 .. 2017 where you at ?!
I'm not sad and I'm not angry, its just a MEHHH feeling, if that makes sense lol.

Happiness is not something 

ready-made.It comes from your 

own actions.”

Dalai Lama

Call me cheesy but positive quotes always speak to me, I love that they give me that little push to combat however I'm feeling.

 I was thinking of different ways to get myself out of this funk and came up with a little guide called 'Dear Blog', from me, to me, if you will. I'm not even sure if this will actually work but one can only try right? 

If it helps any of my readers then that's also a bonus and maybe I'll do a guide every month to keep myself motivated. 

'DEAR BLOG #1'
  1. Take a long bath and just relax
  2. Meet up with a friend and have dinner or drinks
  3. Stay off social media for at least 24 hours and I swear this is nearly impossible for me but don't you just love it when you're having fun without your phone?
  4. Book a spontaneous holiday 
  5. Write down how I'm feeling in a journal and share it with my readers because no one's happy 365 days a year. 
  6. Explore London
  7. Go to a pilates or yoga class for some serious relaxation
  8. Take Amirah (baby sister, well she's 3 haha) swimming, for a play date or shopping.
  9. Cook a meal for my family 
  10. Create an epic Afrobeats playlist and dance around the house with my mum and sisters. This is probably one of the only things that will always put a smile on my face!
If you have any other suggestions, feel free to comment below or email me. I love feedback from my readers and I promise to post more regularly.

Love
