Make The Most Of 2018

What did 2017 bring you and what will 2018 have in store? With a new year underway it’s a great time to reflect on last year and focus on the excitement of what’s in store for the coming months.

In case you’ve already forgotten, 2017 ‘graced’ us all with (in no particular order)

  • Everything rose gold, including paper clips and desk items, phones, clothes and even kitchen equipment (KitchenAid bling). Apparently it’s called ‘millennial pink’ – who knew
  • Increased terror attacks in the UK and around the world – no words can describe the shock, horror and anger we all felt and experienced. Out of the terror, we witnessed the growth of true heart-felt support and love. Long may this continue to grow.
  • The Great British Bake Off moving to Channel 4 and the loss of Mel and Sue and Mary Berry – the media predicted a disaster but I loved it.
  • More man buns and ‘Victorian gentleman’ beards. I have nothing more to say.
  • All things unicorn, including clothing, accessories, those all-important memes, and you’re your daily Starbucks coffee and a variety of food.
  • Square, thick eyebrows and face contouring – for those who maybe want to look like a Kardashian. It’s a no from me.
  • Donald Trump the ‘Chaos President’
  • That General election and those continued Brexit talks – they just keep going on and on and on.
  • Fidget spinners – did that little gadget calm you down and keep you from being distracted? Were you born to spin?
  • Game of Thrones and Stranger Things – if you haven’t binge watched the box sets on Netflix what’s your excuse.                                                                                                                                                              


2017 was an interesting up and down roller coaster for me.

Busy creating my new career coaching offering combined with plenty of travel, sun, soul music and good friends. Then the crashing news towards the end of the year that my lovely mum was diagnosed with breast cancer.

Thanks to the wonderful NHS and their staff, she’s now on the road to recovery. This was a real ‘wake-up’ call for me.  Now more than ever I’ve decided to live in the moment, to participate in life instead of just watching it pass by.

Now is the time to burn that Jo Malone candle that I was ‘saving as special’ (I just realised I’ve had it 2 years – WTF.)

It’s time to wear that expensive perfume every day,  not just when I’m going out.

It’s time to use that expensive make-up I bought a while ago (if you’re interested it’s The Celestial Skin Liquid Lighting – Kevyn Aucoin, it’s FAB and I’ve had loads of comments on how well I look.)

Find out what makes you happy and allows you to live in the moment.

It might be a new experience, it might be using ‘your special mug’ everyday, it might be enjoying fine wine, a great meal or spending more time with friends or family.

On the other hand, you might want to experience more time to reflect, more quite time alone, more time outside and enjoying nature or maybe taking up a new creative or energetic hobby interests you.

❤Just do it!❤

I don’t know about you but I’ve found those new year resolutions of, go to the gym more/get more exercise; eat healthier to feel better; stop eating chocolate/cheese; loose weight; drink more water don’t work for me. Instead I’m off to find the matches, enjoy my candle and live in the moment. What about you?

If you’re looking for career advice and support come on over and like/follow me on all the usual social media (click on the links below) I’d love to see you there.

  1. Excellent read, I just passed this onto a friend who was doing a little research on that. And he actually bought me lunch since I found it for him smile Therefore let me rephrase that: Thank you for lunch!

  2. You completed certain nice points there. I did a search on the theme and found a good number of persons will have the same opinion with your blog. Brett Martainn Colver

  3. Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa?
    My blog covers a lot of the same topics as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from
    each other. If you might be interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by the way!

  4. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if
    you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that
    automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite
    some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience
    with something like this. Please let me know if
    you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look
    forward to your new updates.

  5. Great beat ! I would like to apprentice while you amend your web site, how can i subscribe for a blog web site? The account helped me a acceptable deal. I had been a little bit acquainted of this your broadcast offered bright clear concept

  6. Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  7. Starting from her beauty & sincerity to her serenity & purity is all they want to hear. Compliment them for everything; her eyes, her looks, her nature, her attitude, her dress up etc.
    Girls don’t care much about the comment. They care more for the person you are, your character, how you act, how you react etc. To answer what girls like in that is difficult to write because there’s a lot of stuff and it’s explanations are too long.

  8. Eg:- Be who you are. This is the best advice as well as the worst advice because when you go upto a girl you become different and then you will be the person you are then, the character changes. It shouldn’t and it’s really difficult to explain using words on how to “act normal”. It’s way easier to demonstrate.
    Look into her eyes and simply express her about how happy you have felt to spend time with her . 

  9. I can’t tell because it depends on girl i mean what’s ur relation with her if she is too much bestie , just friend or girfriend , crush etc comment something very pleasant and very casual
    I read this really great post once, not too long ago. I can’t find it right now, but if I do I’ll edit this post and include a link so you can see the original thing. But I’ll explain it in my own words.

  10. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment
    is added I get three emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Many thanks!

  13. Hey there! I realize this is somewhat off-topic however I had to ask.

    Does running a well-established blog like
    yours require a large amount of work? I’m brand new to blogging however I do write in my diary everyday.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and
    feelings online. Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.
    Appreciate it!
