I’ve been working from home now since the 17th March this year. Thats almost 7 months of my home being work, and work being at my home. It was a weird transition at first but one I have come to appreciate. I get an extra 2 hours in bed, I don’t have to do a commute, finishing work doesn’t involve a train journey home. There are so many benefits, but with anything there are downsides too. The lack of social interaction with colleagues, not having a break between home life and work life, feeling like I must be available 24/7. But please know I am so grateful. Grateful that I have been able to work all throughout this pandemic, and that my job is secure.Read more
Do you like rainy days? I like them in moderation, especially if I don’t need to go anywhere that day! Sometimes it can feel so hard to be productive on rainy days. I just want to curl up in a blanket with a movie and not move all day. I always find it hard getting up in the morning too and making sure the day is productive. So today I thought I’d share some ways we can all become more productive, especially on those dark, rainy gloomy days.Read more

Self-love is such an up and coming topic seen on blogs in 2020. Self-love and self empowerment is raging now more than ever. I wonder why that is? I think it’s because for years and years society has shaped a mould of how we should be living our lives and so many more people are coming out to say they don’t fit the mould and don’t want to. I am here for it. In todays post we will go through a quick lesson on what self-love is, what it looks like and some truths about it too, which will hopefully teach us all a little more about the topic.Read more
You’re probably reading this title, like Olivia why would I want to show grace to people who are unkind? Well, research shows that there are several reasons why someone is a mean or unkind person. A lot of it has to do with how people have treated them in the past, a lack of self confidence, treating you how they feel about themselves – this is called projection and various other psychological reasons. I think that unkind people need the most love. It can be hard to do this, because how can you force yourself to show someone love who was mean to you? Well todays post talks about how we can take steps to be more graceful to others.Read more
Recently I have become addicted to Tik Tok, I’m not proud of it but they say the first step of beating an addiction is admitting you have one. So here I am. Haha I’m totally kidding but I really do love watching Tik Tok videos. A few months ago I stumbled across a page where a woman called Nabela, who shares these amazingly put together videos showing pockets of peace in her day. Even if she doesn’t have a great day, she finds even the small positives and I thought it was such a great idea and such a great way to remember to be grateful and see the goodness in each day.
So today I thought I would share how you can find your pockets of peace in each day. Then I thought we could start a conversation and share with each other our pockets of peace. I’ll start by sharing mine and then you tell us yours in the comments!Read more
Hello everyone it’s me, Shayla from thedailyshayla.com. If you don’t know anything about me, I’m a 22 year old mother from the UK with a lot to say (hey that rhymes!).
I am so happy to be collaborating with Olivia on my first guest post! We have come together and created an awesome list of 10 things we have learnt in our twenties!
Over here on Olivia’s blog, down below, you can read my list of the top 5 lessons I have learnt. Then once you’ve finished reading that, you can pop over to my blog and read Olivia’s list too, how cool is that!?
Although I am only 22, the change from teenage years was definitely noticeable. Being pregnant at 20 and having a baby at 21 made it even more significant and I feel like I have grown so much in such a small amount of time. Here are the 5 things I have learnt in my twenties…all 2 loooooong years of them!
