We are all unique and can bring something completely different to the table. Remember, in one way or another, you can offer something no one else can! Think about what it is that makes you different and love it. We should all be confident about what makes us special and what we can bring to the World. We can all achieve amazing things. Do you think Alexander Graham Bell doubted his abilities, perhaps – but he must have been confident to keep going, and we might not be living with telephones if he didn’t. We all need to believe in our own abilities. Every single person counts. A doctor can help save someone’s life, a PR can have an effect on brand presence, a store assistant…

OK, so let’s get it out there right away – I’m rubbish at swimming. I believe I don’t float, it’s so much harder than learning to drive no matter what people say, and yes I find water scary. There, the truth is out. A while ago I had a private swimming lesson, which some of you might have read about (here), and I got into such a good routine of going to my local swimming pool to practice, but recently it’s really slipped  – weekends are so busy in the summer with being away, birthdays, people visiting, etc. What makes it worse, I’m off on holiday soon and really wanted to be a stronger swimmer before that. So when I got invited along to a…

I know I’ve been a little quiet for the last couple weeks, only a couple posts and not much else. The reason – a new job! I started just over two weeks ago now, yes I know I had the long Easter weekend but taking everything in and settling into my new company and new role has drained me. Easter weekend I thought I was coming down with whatever everyone else has been suffering from…achey-ness, sniffles, lacking energy…and so thought the best thing for me would be to relax. Do absolutely nothing. Apart from a movie marathon and cooking a roast – you have to have one once in a while and all those veggies are great when you’re feeling under the weather! And it…

I feel like I really want some Sun – I know right. How much do I need? We are getting sunnier days, I get that, but if you were stuck in a basement office like mine, you’d understand. I want to get away..far away…hmmm dreaming of winter sun right now! I know I’ve got my winter city break planned (this post to come!), but it’ll be a chilly one, and I’m really regretting not being able to have a sunny beach holiday this year. I think my body is now craving sun,sea and sand! This got me thinking of all the things I missed out on this year, the bikinis, kimonos for the beach, getting my tattoo out…Yes I have a lovely blossom one down my side which…

Recently I had my first event. The first I had been involved in since being in PR. The first event I had played a huge part in organising (my Account Manager had been away which gave me more opportunities to pick up extra responsibility). daunting, nerve-wracking, stressful? Yes. Worth it? … How did it go? I actually think it went pretty well, and my Director seemed happy too! Great turn out, everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves and have a good time, and the presentation got just the reaction I’d hoped for from the room. What did I learn? – Be prepared – make a list of everything you need to do. Prepare goody bags in advance in case people don’t send the right number of…
