September Favourites: Stationery, Illustrations, & More

Welcome to another addition of my monthly favourites. This month I *officially* started working as a freelancer, so my purchases have become slightly more practical.

I decided to go for this super  ...

Digital Detoxes 101: Why and How?

Although it’s only been two weeks since I started working freelance, I’m starting to realise something. I can get overwhelmed so easily! I’m not talking about the workload, I’m actually really excited to be so busy. I have spent the past two weeks working right up until I sleep and I’ve been absolutely loving it. But because of the nature of my work, I find myself needing to spend more downtime offline. This year I’ve seen more and more people speak about  ...
