Why Your ‘Attitude of Gratitude’ Doesn’t Cut It.

Before you ask, no, I haven’t magically grown my hair long enough for a high pony tail, nor have I shed 5 kilos or turned into a twat who poses by palm trees. This is an old photo (8 years old to be exact) taken when I had hair long enough for a high pony tail, was 5 kilos lighter …

“It’s Just A Chocolate Roll” – A Lesson In Getting Back What You Put In

It is the day before Christmas Eve, and I am squashed around a table which is just too small for the purpose of housing it’s 10 occupants. My family has gathered at my eldest sister’s house to celebrate Christmas – nieces, nephews, sisters, in-laws and my Dad, and quite frankly the whole thing is bloody lovely (because everyone has just …

Why “New Year, New Me” Can Go Fuck Itself!

Truth be told I ate too many Quality Street over Christmas. And mince pies. And all of it. I just ate all of it. No regrets it was bloody glorious. But yesterday I dragged my wobblier-than-normal ass back to the gym. And fuck me, it was awful. Not because of the squats or the music (why do they play such …

Why Goal Setting Doesn’t Work

This is an adaptation of a blog I guest wrote for Jemimah Ashleigh – Positioning Expert. You can find her HERE and I highly suggest you check out her work if you are an entrepreneur! Ah the end of a year and the promise of a brand new fresh one where you’ll wake up on the morning of the 1st …

How To Cope At Christmas When Life Feels Fucking Awful

I am sat on a train (hard) whilst I type this blog which is to be published on Christmas eve of 2018. Two stops ago some teenager walked past me leaving a cloud of hormones and Lynx Africa in his wake. After I caught my breath (why do they still produce Lynx Africa? It wasn’t great in the 80’s and …

A Christmas Message – Emily Style!

Christmas! It’s the most wonderful time of the year! But let’s be honest it can also be extremely stressful and ridiculously expensive. Two days ago I landed back in England (please, be colder. And wetter. And darker. And… sarcasm) with a suitcase full of gifts which my nieces and nephews definitely don’t need but I’m hoping want enough to love …

The Biggest Money Block (that’s stopping you attracting your worth)

Ah Christmas! I must admit I’m feeling zero festive cheer right now because as I write this in Melbourne it is 785 degrees Celsius outside (shut up I don’t exaggerate you do!). My air con is trying and failing to keep the temperature inside bearable and as a British chick, I am used to being colder than a snowman’s testicles …

It’s Okay For You Because… The Inconvenient Truth

It is 1.47am exactly and the sat-nav cheerily informs me that I have another 39 minutes until I reach my destination. I want to punch it. And I want to pee. Real bad. But pulling over would add another 7 minutes onto my arrival time, pushing my ‘fall into bed’ time dangerously close to 3am. So I exercise my pelvic …

Things I Wish I Knew Then (that I have to remind myself of now)

Things I Wish I Knew Then Last week, my phone and I fell out. The little fucker had done that thing where it worked perfectly in every way except one. The battery. Yep, seeing 100% battery on the screen meant as much as hearing your Tinder date say he’d definitely call you – a bunch of bullshit; an empty promise …

That Relationship You Can’t Get Out Of…

I kill things. All the time. As you walk into my house a dead Bonsai greats you. It’s been with me for years and I live in the deluded hop that one day it will magically resurrect itself. Pot plants don’t stand a chance in my house and even my childhood goldfish (I called her Felicity and I loved her …
