Hey there! Good evening. It has been a while since I have written a blog post on my website and I wanted to change that. I'm going to be honest, it was tough thinking of content to post on a weekly basis and I think that's what contributed to me stopping last Spring. Since then a lot has happened so I wanted to write a little 2019 summary post and let you know what is happening in my life. I have reflected on the past year and having been reminded of just how much I did in 2019 by my Photos app on my iPhone, I was blown away!
I couldn't recommend podcasts enough at the moment. They are the perfect break from everyday life and a way to escape and make time for yourself within busy schedules. There are so many available for free to listen to and I have learnt so much so far this year! I have popped five podcasts in this blog entry that I would recommend highly and a little summary about each.
I'm currently self-employed and primarily work for two companies in particular. One of these is Trade Canvas Print and Christmas is definitely the busiest time of year for the company. We are in our final week now of orders before the cut-off passes and we close until January. I am keeping this blog post short and sweet and will be back to regular posts and email newsletters from next week onwards.
I recently subscribed to Gousto which is a food delivery service. They portion all of the ingredients you need to prepare and cook delicious meals from their website/app. This results in no food waste and they are super quick to make as well (my meals only took half an hour each). I will be talking about my meals and the Gousto box service in this post!
This week Deliciously Ella released The Plant Based Cookbook. I pre-ordered it and mine actually arrived Wednesday, a day before the official release. I am really inspired to cook more plant based meals now from receiving these amazing recipes and along with her YouTube channel, app and podcast I've definitely had an overload (in a good way) of Deliciously Ella this week!
This week is quite a simple post as I have been relaxing on weekends as of late. I have lots of work on during the week and I have allocated the weekends to spending some time to unplug and rest so that I can begin the next week refreshed! So far this is going really well and I am enjoying having a couple of days to myself every week. It has meant that the workload Monday to Friday has increased but I have found new ways to cope with this which I've covered in this post.
