How to be kind to yourself in January

First post of 2019 alert! The back end of 2018 was a quiet time for The Positiff Blog. But with good reason.

You don’t have to post it to prove it

Never has the phrase ‘Doing it for the gram’ been more real. In a world where we now rely on social media to check up on what others are doing, find out where the celebs are and get inspiration for decor, recipes and outfits, it’s no surprise we feel pressured to prove that we’re achieving things too; living our best lives and generally looking for validation of our choices.  Continue reading

When we knew our lovely Emma was returning for a few weeks from New Zealand, we arranged a cheapy weekend away in sunny Somerset. We chose a caravan holiday because a) they’re so fun! and b) I get a discount through work for our great Haven sites all around the country.  Continue reading

A weekend in Brighton

Another month has gone by and we’re now in June! Not sure how that happened, but my month started in the best way with a spontaneous trip to Brighton for the weekend with Danny who I met on the Kiwi Bus in New Zealand way back at the end of 2016! Over 19 months later, we reunited and made the trip down to the coast and had such a fun weekend exploring what this vibrant place had to offer Continue reading
