Drugs Aren’t The Problem

There’s been some negative news in the Australian press recently about a music festival called Rainbow Serpent. Why? Well drugs, really. People go into the Australian bush under the blistering sun and dance to music many don’t understand (full disclosure, I don’t out of context) and while they do so, some of the crowd inevitably push their boundaries with substances …

7 Signs You’ve Lost Your Way In Business

Okay, it’s time to confess. I am writing this blog post a full 9 days before I intend to publish it. In fact, this bad boy is coming to life on my laptop screen even before next weeks has even been conceived of. Seemingly Unimportant Newsflash! But this never happened before, ever. I am not a pre-planner when it comes …

Why Your ‘Attitude of Gratitude’ Doesn’t Cut It.

Before you ask, no, I haven’t magically grown my hair long enough for a high pony tail, nor have I shed 5 kilos or turned into a twat who poses by palm trees. This is an old photo (8 years old to be exact) taken when I had hair long enough for a high pony tail, was 5 kilos lighter …

“It’s Just A Chocolate Roll” – A Lesson In Getting Back What You Put In

It is the day before Christmas Eve, and I am squashed around a table which is just too small for the purpose of housing it’s 10 occupants. My family has gathered at my eldest sister’s house to celebrate Christmas – nieces, nephews, sisters, in-laws and my Dad, and quite frankly the whole thing is bloody lovely (because everyone has just …

Why “New Year, New Me” Can Go Fuck Itself!

Truth be told I ate too many Quality Street over Christmas. And mince pies. And all of it. I just ate all of it. No regrets it was bloody glorious. But yesterday I dragged my wobblier-than-normal ass back to the gym. And fuck me, it was awful. Not because of the squats or the music (why do they play such …

Why Goal Setting Doesn’t Work

This is an adaptation of a blog I guest wrote for Jemimah Ashleigh – Positioning Expert. You can find her HERE and I highly suggest you check out her work if you are an entrepreneur! Ah the end of a year and the promise of a brand new fresh one where you’ll wake up on the morning of the 1st …

How To Cope At Christmas When Life Feels Fucking Awful

I am sat on a train (hard) whilst I type this blog which is to be published on Christmas eve of 2018. Two stops ago some teenager walked past me leaving a cloud of hormones and Lynx Africa in his wake. After I caught my breath (why do they still produce Lynx Africa? It wasn’t great in the 80’s and …

A Christmas Message – Emily Style!

Christmas! It’s the most wonderful time of the year! But let’s be honest it can also be extremely stressful and ridiculously expensive. Two days ago I landed back in England (please, be colder. And wetter. And darker. And… sarcasm) with a suitcase full of gifts which my nieces and nephews definitely don’t need but I’m hoping want enough to love …

The Biggest Money Block (that’s stopping you attracting your worth)

Ah Christmas! I must admit I’m feeling zero festive cheer right now because as I write this in Melbourne it is 785 degrees Celsius outside (shut up I don’t exaggerate you do!). My air con is trying and failing to keep the temperature inside bearable and as a British chick, I am used to being colder than a snowman’s testicles …

It’s Okay For You Because… The Inconvenient Truth

It is 1.47am exactly and the sat-nav cheerily informs me that I have another 39 minutes until I reach my destination. I want to punch it. And I want to pee. Real bad. But pulling over would add another 7 minutes onto my arrival time, pushing my ‘fall into bed’ time dangerously close to 3am. So I exercise my pelvic …
