You Are Good Enough - Smashing Your Goals

Sadly we live in a world full of people who are quick to shoot others down or pick at anything they can. You only have to check Twitter for ten seconds to see this in action. I touched on this briefly with my experiences on a blog post about online hate.  The Royal Wedding was beautiful, it made my heart hurt and I'm still not over it but one look on social media and people still had something bad to say about such lovely occasion. I feel like the social media space has opened us up to both overwhelming amounts of love and, overwhelming amounts of hate, bitterness and general nastiness. The nastiness will be over anything or anyone. Today I wanted to write a blog post all about being good enough because even if you don’t feel it, you are good enough. I've spent years feeling 'not good enough' and if you're struggling at the moment with maybe the wrong crowd, not feeling good enough, negativity etc, I hope this may help you reach for the stars and smash your goals.

The world is going crazy for Meghan Markle today and rightly so. It's the day of the Royal Wedding and personally, I couldn't be more excited.

I'm listing all the products Meghan Markle apparently loves and uses when it comes to beauty and skincare too so I hope this will be helpful. Let's talk about the Royal Wedding but mainly, Meghan Markle.

Judging Our Self Worth On Instagram Likes - Validation From Likes On Social Media?

We live in a funny old world, one day Instagram was a random app where I thought it was the best way to get a vintage filter on my pics, (seriously, I was editing photos on there and uploading them for months before I realised other people could see, social media fail). The next minute, I was seeing girls with millions of followers, beautiful bodies and seemingly perfect lives. Now, people have careers because of the app. Instagram has definitely always been a 'highlights reel' and if you read my Is Social Media Dangerous? post, you'll know I understand that. I understand there are always gonna be people in different or seemingly better situations than me and it's taken me a long while to stop comparing myself. I understand in my rational mind (the non-over thinking part of my brain) that Instagram is a place for aesthetically pleasing and seemingly perfect images but I also know that these images probably took 100 takes, with 10 filters and just because someone looks happy on the image, it certainly doesn't mean they're happy in themselves. So, today I want to talk about judging our self-worth on Instagram likes or, social media likes. I'm guilty of it, so many of my friends have become victims of it and this post has been brewing for a long time.

Last week, I was invited on an adventure with Schweppes and wow, how magical it was. I'm sure most of you know how much I adore country escapes. As much as New York has my heart, I'm a country girl deep down. I was brought up in the countryside so I guess it always feels like home. We were transported to Chichester in utter luxury for a whimsical 24 hours. Come along for the ride.
