As I may have mentioned before, I work full time as a business account manager. Aside from my 40 hour working weeks, I also have a 50 minute commute each way to get to work. To say it keeps me busy would be an understatement. This means that whenever my friends hear about my blog, one of the first questions they ask is “but how do you find the time?!“. So I thought I’d share my tips for managing to post regularly while holding down a full time job;
As I mentioned a few days ago on my 5 happy things post, last Sunday I spent the day making a nine mile walk from Hammersmith to Chiswick taking the scenic route along the Thames. To be fair, it wasn’t intended to be that long. I took a wrong turning following the river and added three miles to the journey. I took along my camera and ended up getting a lot more snaps than intended. So, I thought I’d share them with you here;
When I first moved to London, the thought of buying new furniture was overwhelming to say the least. I’d spent the last few years between home, fully furnished rentals and student accommodation. As much as I wanted to put my own stamp on the flat, I decided to play it safe and ended up buying
half the store a lot of pieces from IKEA. Although I love IKEA as much as the next girl, almost everything I picked up was white or grey and my space is in need of accessorising.
It’s no secret that my hand eye co-ordination could be better. I am far too clumsy for my own good and have been known to trip over thin air more times than I’d like to admit. This is part of the reason that I take bi-weekly trips to my local salon to get my nails done. I mean, don’t get me wrong I enjoy having fresh acrylics. However in reality my talons could easy last a week more if the polish hadn’t become chipped beyond repair. It’s not that I go to a bad salon, but I spend a lot of time typing and I nervously play with my nails. I’ve often thought about having shellac on top of my acrylics but at an extra £20 a time, it’s not really viable. So, when I saw the SensatioNail range in my local Boots I was curious to try.
Over the last two months I’ve really enjoyed sharing my favourite blog posts from the last thirty days on here. So I think, FrannyMac may just have it’s first regular feature. (Mini blog achievement right there!). On that note, here are some of the blog posts I’ve really enjoyed reading over the last 30 or so days – I hope you all enjoy these as much as I do!
