Florida part 1: My guide to Disneyworld

After a two month hiatus, I think a post all about my holiday will be a welcome instalment on the Positiff Blog! The first part of my Florida posts is a guide to Disney. It was as magical as people say, even for two 25 year olds! However, the sheer size of the parks, number of rides, attractions and places to eat, as well as planning your transport can be a bit of a headache, so hopefully this guide will give you an idea of what a holiday to the ‘most magical place on earth’ will mean.

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. Studying, a busy schedule and some little dark period of anxieties, illness and not much motivation meant that writing wasn’t on my mind. You have to want to do something to do it properly right?

Solo travel: empowering not dangerous

The news of backpacker Grace Millane in New Zealand broke my heart. I got really upset about it and how her family have lost their daughter, how she won’t be able to return home to them and share all her stories of her travels.

Why staycations can be the best vacations

A lot can be said for the humble UK break. It was all I ever knew growing up. My Mum and Dad would pack us into the car, up to our eyeballs in suitcases and pillows, the windbreak and bucket and spades crammed between us, for the 5 hour drive down to Cornwall nearly every year until we were 16 – and we loved it. We knew no different. But we did know we were in for 2 weeks of relaxed parenting, ice cream on tap and pretty much an anything-goes attitude whilst away from our usual routine.

A quick guide to Copenhagen

Another city break done with my two girls Lucy and Karolina and this one didn’t disappoint. There’s nothing like a change of scenery to lighten my mood and feed my need for travel and adventure. Continue reading

Avoiding negativity and staying true to yourself

This week I have found myself spouting that old chestnut ‘life is too short’ on repeat to myself and to my best friends. Those 4 little words couldn’t be more true and it’s great to remind ourselves during periods of negativity, drama or stress that there really is so much more to life than silly spats and unnecessary negativity.

Blogging for the right reasons

Over a month has passed since my last post, and with good reason. Sometimes, there is a lot going on in your life and you simply have to prioritise things and relieve the pressure you’re putting on yourself to get everything done and be super successful. So lately, I have prioritised my study sessions, heading out for walks with my tunes in and doing things that have helped me stay calm and not lose the plot (reading a good book and watching Love Island to name a couple – no judgements here!).
