5 new things to try this month

5 new things to try this month

I’m a firm believer in trying new things, from food to music to books and travel. Whilst I am always looking for that new experience or skill to learn, I do have my trusty “can do” list. We aim to visit a new place regularly whether it is near or far – you know where love a road trip here at Lady from a Tramp! Professionally, I push myself to learn or develop a new skill every 3 months at work so I can put it to use for the rest of the year.

How to be more mindful every day…

Saving for Travel


In today’s digital age, the practise of mindfulness has become less and less prominent in people’s lives. More-often-than-not, and especially at work, we ‘zone-out’ or switch onto auto pilot.

My go to relaxation is reading, I read for at least 30 minutes a day, without fail and I know that no matter how hectic my day is, I have a block of time where I focus on nothing but the story.

Failing reading, I put on some loud music and dance around like Andrew W.K until all my cares have gone!

Avoid an Excessive Spend at Christmas

Avoid an Excessive Spend at Christmas

I am guilty for buying crap I don’t need. I know this, I work on this. I am a sucker for a sale spend but this year I have been very restrained and cut down on those impulse purchases and needless junk from the sales just because it’s a “bargain”. I’ve stuck to only buying things I need!

This year, the company I work for decided to stop the corporate spending on cards to clients that rarely get looked at and instead donated the same value to a local Food Bank. With well over 150 items provided, we swapped spending for helping.
