Five Goals for the Rest of 2018

Good god Autumn, how are on earth are you a) already here and b) already flying by at a rate of knots that is actually quite scary? I mean not only have the leaves started to fall (along with the temperatures, brr), but Halloween and Bonfire Night are both behind us.

Let's Catch Up

Oh hey guys - I've got an apology to make because I totally went MIA again didn't I? I teased you all with a couple of new posts and then bam, I submitted my entry for the worst blogger of 2018 by leaving you all hanging again. Sorry.

5 Ways to Beat the Burnout

Suffering from burnout is an all too common experience these days; we all want to be the best employee, to be the best daughter, friend, partner... the list is endless and in our pursuits to be the best in everyone else's eyes, we often forget the most important person in our lives. Ourselves.

It's Good to Talk

We all handle and deal with our emotions in very different ways, we are all very different people with differing mindsets and there is no 'one-size fits all' way to manage our mental health. This year, more that any other, I have become very aware of my own mental health and in turn, the mental health of those around me too.

Ibiza Photo Diary

In the immortal words of Embrace 'honey, it's been a long time coming' ... this post that is! I visited Ibiza back in May and only recently have I sat down to pick out my favourite pictures from the trip to share with you all.

Vegan Choc Chip Cookies

One thing I love to do, but rarely share online, is cook. All of my first jobs were in the hospitality industry, something that I went on to study at university and I absolutely loved the hustle and bustle of the kitchen. These days it's just me and Mr D in there, but I love it just as much and lately I've been itching to get back in there, cooking some of my favourite recipes.

Blaze Blogs : On Taking Time Out & the Future of Blogging

When I started HarmonyBlaze in 2014, I don't think I ever saw myself taking a two month break from it - but then again I don't think I ever saw life getting so busy and hectic. However, whilst I may not have been ever present online these past few months I have thought a lot about the future of HarmonyBlaze and blogging in general.

4 Ways to Get Your Glow Back

I cannot start to put into words how amazing my week in Ibiza was last month ... it felt like a week long celebration of love and friendship and gave me an opportunity to really unwind for the first time this year. It was so nice to sit out, late into the night chatting, putting the world to rights and laughing until my sides hurt!

Blaze Blogs : On Eating Less Meat

As the the clock struck midnight on December 31st 2017, I committed to doing three things in 2018; to practice more self-care, to live more consciously and to have meat-free Monday's.

Spring Break Haul 2018

Yes girls and boys it's that time of year again, it's Spring and whilst I'm not sure the rest of the world get's as excited as we Brits do at the sight of the sun peaking out from the clouds, I'm celebrating it with a Spring Break Haul.

Dear Body...

A couple of weeks ago I read one of those blogposts that really spoke out to me. You know the type, the kind where you sit there for a few minutes at the end pondering the meaning of life, the universe and everything in-between.

The Next 90 Days

We all know that I'm a bit of a positive peach at heart and I don't know about you, but I would much rather look forward at what I have ahead of me, than what I have left behind. Looking forward fills me with excitement, motivates me to work harder and helps me to focus that little bit more.

Hello May

Well hello there May, and hello to you my lovely readers. I feel like it has been an age since I sat down and wrote a little note to you all and with the warmer weather (hopefully still) making a comeback, I thought I would throw it back to 2017 with a 'Hello' post...

Reclaim Your 'Me Time'

It really does go with out saying that sometimes life just takes over and it is pretty easy to quickly feel overwhelmed by everything. Recently I have been working away a lot and this is just one reason that I am putting more and more effort into reclaiming my time off...

So You Want to be a Blogger?

One thing that I have seen a lot written about lately, is how easy it is to be a blogger and how it isn't a real job, or something that should be aspired to be. But what is it really like to be a blogger? We've all read posts by the 'pros' debunking some of their myths and misconceptions, but here's a look from a 'part-timers' point of view...

Regaining My Wellness*

Over the past few years, I have come to realise that I need to look after my wellness as well as my health these days. Wellness is one of those things that we all take for granted, but we look after our health and selves in other ways, so why not our wellness?

Learning to be Truly Happy

I like to think that I'm a nice person. I prefer to spread joy and happiness as opposed to negativity and doubt, I'm supportive and dependable and I'm also fairly generous when it comes to compliments too. But there's one person that I'm not a nice person to; me.

Owning It

Sunday's are my favourite. Why? Because on a Sunday I get up, I make myself coffee and toast to enjoy whilst watching a little bit of TV and I settle onto the sofa, in the comfiest clothing I can find... usually my Calvin's & PJs.

Looking After Number One

Somedays I can't believe that I have been on this planet for as long as I actually have, I still feel like such a newbie at life. Over the years I have learned many things; how to nail a throw-in in football, how to do my eyebrows and how to change a tyre to name just a few, but self love still fails me to this day.

Why Europe Satisfies My Travel Bug

As a child, the furthest I ever travelled was to the island of Majorca. Back then that felt like a world away, I can remember flying back over Barcelona during the closing ceremony of the 1992 Olympics and watching the fireworks down below.

Losing My Way

Well my little Blaze-ettes, we've made it through another 7-days with me barely saying hello, but I have a lot going on right now to say the least so I'm sure you will forgive me in the long run for going a little awol recently.

All the Small Things #AD

No sooner does it feel as though dust has settled from our mad dashes around town to find the perfect gift for our loved ones at Christmas, is Valentines Day is just around the corner and we have to come with more ideas of what the love of our life would like all over again.

That Winter Funk* | The Girl Guide

I don't know about you guys but I feel as though I have hit a real funk this January and it is really starting to get on my last nerve. So I've decided that this year I want be more honest with you all, talk about all the things that are going on in my life right now, what I’m loving (and what I'm not)...

Remember You're a Bad Ass

Every time I say the title of this post I say it to the tune of 'Remember You're a Womble' (a song that cam out way before my time but hey ho, I know it somehow) and I make myself chuckle a little bit. As always I digress as this isn't a post about random old songs that I know, but one about remembering that you my dear are in actual fact a BAD ASS.

The Lessons I've Learnt

Oh hey there, as you read this I will be either dancing around because it's my birthday (and I love a good birthday) or I'll be having some kind of mini-breakdown over the fact that today, I am turning 34. I mean WTF, when did I get old!

The 2018 (Fuck) Budget

I've written a couple of these posts before and never published them, mainly because they felt too similar to posts that other people were putting out there at the time and partly because I was a little bit worried about how other people would react to the things I had decided I no longer give a damn about.

Why I Fell in Love with Gran Canaria

Don't you just love it when you visit somewhere and instantly feel at home and comfortable in your surroundings? I know that I do, it instantly makes any travel anxiety that I may be carrying with me just melt away and allows me to relax. I feel so at home in Gran Canaria and I wanted to try and share with you just why I love this island so much.

My Commitment to 2018

I'm not a massive believer in the whole 'New Year, New Me' thing these days, over the years I have learnt that the majority of new years resolutions only lead to me feeling down and disappointed by the time Valentines comes around. Why? Because I'm a hard person to please when it comes to personal achievements.
