How I relax and unwind.

I’m a pro at relaxing and chilling and have devised the perfect way to unwind.

Sundays are the ultimate chill day. I wish I could say I go out for brunch with friends, but I’d be lying if I did! I love a good brunch, but I love just staying home on Sundays and relaxing with a good book, a cup of tea and some music.

Why I’ve Been Quiet On Here Recently

How I Mentally Prepare For Christmas

Christmas is a draining time of year for many.  Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE Christmas.  It’s my favourite time of year.  Especially with it being Summer here in NZ.  But still, there are so many things to be done at this time of year.  Work is ‘over’ for another year (as is school and University).  Presents need to be bought, houses need to be decorated and baking and cooking needs to be prepared.

There are a few things I do to mentally prepare for this time of year:

My Favourite Music For Writing

On Sunday #nzbloggers hosted a bloggers chat about our favourite music and whether we write when listening to music.  I hate silence and I love listening to music as I write and as I drive etc. So, I thought I’d do a post on my favourite music for writing.
