    Why I don’t have a schedule and why you shouldn’t work to one either.

    This is something that I see a lot of bloggers get asked about, as a reader and a follower if you enjoy someone’s content it often becomes a thought in your mind that you wish they posted more often. You wish there was more to read and more to explore but some bloggers, YouTubers etc don’t have a schedule and I’m one of them. Quality VS Quantity If I write what I want, when I want then it’s going to be better quality. I can work on a blog post and get it to the level I want, do more research etc sometimes over the course of a couple of weeks.…

    Solitude – What if?

    This morning, I popped on YouTube to watch something whilst I was working through my work on the laptop. I happened to come across a documentary done on Solitary Confinement. 5 People were placed in complete solitary confinement for 5 days.

Everyone struggled, it makes you strip back everything that you’re and what is important to you. For some, this was good and others not so much. I have always had a huge interest in psychology, experimentation (the voluntary kind, not animals) and many things along the line of mental health. As you know…

    Books and Authors- A few of my favourites and the ones that didn’t hit the mark.

    I thought I would discuss some of my favorite books and authors and some that just didn’t hit the mark. It’s something I will be keeping up with in future posts. Due to this being the first, some of these books I’ve not read for a long time, never the less, they still deserve a place on the list. WARNING, there may be spoilers. I have done my best to keep my opinions and comments about each book quite vague in terms of the nitty-gritty details of the stories but some spoilers are unavoidable as a part of the context.  Christina Henry If you enjoy dark storylines, gruesome discoveries and…

    What makes you feel good?

    Often tied in with looking good and doing good in life, which in turn encourages happiness. Feeling good is the start of the butterfly effect. It shapes our life and everything in it. So, I want to know. What makes you feel good? Part of that butterfly effect is positivity. It has a huge impact on helping us to feel good. I recently wrote about positivity being the route of our tree. The start of everything. You can read it here. For some, feeling good comes easier than with others.

    Food Haul – Vegan Ferrero Rocher and Lidl Veggie Week

    I set my alarm in eager anticipation for Lidl Veggie Week this year. Last year was the first time we went and fell in love with many of the meat alternatives so this time we made sure to get there early and fill up on the goods. Many of the items we have popped in the freezer as good gotos. Did I mention most of them are very low calorie as well? The chicken pieces are 100 calories for half a pack. The Pakora (a new found love this time around) are only 49 calories per one. Make sure to my post from last year about Lidl Veggie Week which goes…
