Always Planning Ahead

I wrote a post last year about trying to enjoy the journey and the anticipation. However, it seems more and more that I’m living in anticipation of something that may be happening next week, next year or at some indeterminable point in the future. Just waiting for that to happen, …

Just One More Thing…

  Sub title: Probably the only productivity tip I will ever write. I am a putter-offer of unbelievable magnitude. And this is my top tip. When you want to give up for the day (or for the night) and sit down + recuperate, just force yourself to do one more thing. Just one. Maybe, once you’ve done this extra thing, you may even be convinced to do another thing. But that’s up to you. If you just do that one extra thing that will make life easier tomorrow or give you a better nights sleep without it hanging over your head, …

Idea Overload – Picking The Winners

New ideas can be hard to come by and yet conversely, sometimes they can be overwhelming. I’m lucky at the moment that they just keep coming, but finding a way of organising them and picking out the ones that will work is vital to make sure they don’t go to waste. This is how I manage my idea overload. I’m not the most organised person, but I make sure that when something pops into my head I note it down straight away. I find the best way to do this is on ‘notes’ in my phone – it’s always somewhere …

Friendships Multiply Joys

When I left school and started living in the grown up world, making new friends and looking after them kind of slipped way down my list of priorities. I was surrounded by friends in my job, and as I lived above a pub it was like I always had a houseful …

Hitting the Slopes – On Paper

Excited to be able to share this table plan now – it’s the most complex I’ve ever done and I’m really pleased with how it turned out. Especially considering I had never even seen a piste map before Diana sent her ideas over to me! It was a fairly imposing A1 size so quite the talking point. So if you’re getting married and would like a table plan (or anything else actually) that has your name written all over it, get in touch. Fully bespoke illustrated table plans rooted in your wildest dreams start from £100.  

Tint Is Totally Terrific

So you may have noticed a little menu tab up top called a terrific year, and if you hadn’t, you probably have now. A few months ago, I had the idea to create a planner that integrated with the social media that most of us are so fond of and the terrific year planner was born. I was really keen to create a ‘hub’, where people using the planners and playing along could check out what everyone else was up to – not just searching hashtags on individual social media sites, but all in one place. After a lot of …

So Many Opportunities, So Little Time

So today is about learning a new skill. I am obsessed with learning new things, but unfortunately time doesn’t always allow me to master all the things I’d love to. Here are some brilliant + fantastic learning opportunities: Flying Trapeze School Yes, trapeze. In real life. You can learn trapeze. I can’t believe this. Definitely one for this summer, the flying trapeze school is in London and a 2 hour class is only £27! Codeacademy Code academy is a super easy way of learning the basics of coding, and best of all it’s free! You can work through a couple …

Change Your Life In One Easy Step

I was always a grumpy sort of person. A perpetually unimpressed, moaning ball of negativity. But recently, over the last year or so, I feel like a weight has been lifted. Like I’m floating, being carried along by hundreds of brightly coloured helium balloons.  The difference between old me, and new me is simple – now, I’m grateful. Of course, things still go wrong, and get me down – quite often I’d say. And I’m an anxious, depressive sort of character (is that just being a creative?) so sadly I don’t live in a rose tinted world, but I am …
