Happy New Year! Hey 2021!

Happy new year everyone! I hope you all had a lovely new year’s day yesterday. It was a quiet one for us. We spent the day indoors as it was freezing cold and we were snowed in. Also with the current pandemic restrictions here socialising is completely out of the window. How did you spend the day?

Hey 2021 image

I am looking forward to the new year. Last year was a very different year and that was the case for most of us. I feel this year will be different in many new ways as well. Regardless of what the new year brings, I am excited to experience it all. Life is a gift and living is the gift. Once there is life, there is hope, and we should never forget that regardless of what we read online or watch on the news.

One thing I am really grateful for is that 2020 taught me to slow down. I am usually on the slow lane with many things, but I went even slower last year and I got to reunite with many aspects of myself. I am looking forward to slowing down some more this 2021. Life in the fast lane every time is no fun. What are you looking forward to this new year? Any plans for the year?

Now that the holidays are over, I will be posting on here regularly. My blogging schedule this year will be similar to last year; a few times a week. I think that works great for my blog’s SEO and my current lifestyle. I am juggling a family, studying for a new degree in psychology, freelance writing, and social media management jobs, plus Fashion and Style Police. So my hands are full literally but I will make every blog post here count.

Have a great 2021. Stay safe and enjoy the new year.



5 dating tips for older dating

Dating in your 40s is usually a lot more fun than in your 20s or 30s. You are older, braver, more experienced and you know what you want and don’t want. This means it is quicker to decide if who you are seeing is the one or not the one. Also, most people are settled in their lives with work, education, and childrearing, so they have more time to dedicate to their love lives. All these help older people be more successful with their dates than when they were younger and distracted. If you are over 40 and looking for love, fear not, these 5 tips for dating in your 40s according to relationship experts would help you make the most of the dates you go on.

Choose well

Pay attention to the profile of the person you are interested in dating. You don’t want to waste hours of your life with someone you have no interest in.  Kelly Campbell, Ph.D., professor of psychology at California State University, San Bernardino, spoke with MyDomaine and warns. “Marrying in your 40s, especially if it’s for the first time, means you have fewer years till death do you part, so this really could be The One,” she continues. “As such, you’ll want to make the best possible choice.”

Trust your instincts

The good thing about older dating is that most people come with a lot of experience, which helps them get out or stay out of bad relationships. If you are dating someone and your instincts tell you something is off about them or the relationship, it is best to trust your instincts and keep off. Many relationships end up badly because they should have never happened in the first place. Trust your gut and stay away from anyone that makes you feel uneasy.

Don’t make assumptions

Prior to going into a new relationship, it is best to lay all your cards on the table. That way there is no room for confusion or assumptions. Try to stay open and non-judgemental regardless of your past experiences. You can stay alert without judgement and get to really know the other person before the relationship kicks off.

Be honest

Honesty is always the best policy. There is no need to try to be someone else just to impress your date. That usually ends badly. Be unapologetically you and stay honest all the way. That way you don’t have to struggle to remember who you are and your date gets to meet the real you from the first date.

Have fun and try not to take yourself too seriously

When it comes to looking for love, many people get it all wrong and take it too seriously. While seeking the one, do remember to enjoy the dates and try not to take yourself too seriously. Go on dates, have fun, and enjoy every moment. Life is too short not to have fun.

How to make extra money working from home

It is August 2020 and life as we know it has changed dramatically. Many of us are now permanently working from home, and many are others in search of new job opportunities. This is the best time to find ways to make extra money working from home since the majority of us are working from home now. I have been working from home since 2013 and I started making a steady income after a few years later. It has been a rollercoaster but a good one. I have learned a lot and I am still a work in progress. There is a lot to learn when you are your own boss with no one to guide you on how you should proceed.

If you are wondering how to make an extra income working from home, here are some ideas for you –

Set up a Blog/Youtube channel

It is not easy making money from a blog or on YouTube. It takes a lot of hard work, persistence, time and a bit of luck. Plus you have to bring something new to the industry. Originality is everything when it comes to standing out online and if you plan to make money online, you have to be original. Blogs and YouTube are easy and cheap to set up nowadays. If you have a passion for writing and creating content, you should give it a go.

Get paid to write

If you love writing, you can get paid to write for others. I am a content writer and I have a couple of clients now which help me earn extra income. Most of my clients come to me through referrals and social media. You can also find clients from job boards online.

Offer virtual assistance

I know many people who hire virtual assistants to help them online with their business. You can earn as much as £10 an hour, so it is quite lucrative.  Here are some responsibilities of a virtual assistant –

  • Managing social media
  • Handing the emails.
Set up an online store

You can set up an online store on eBay or Etsy and sell your products. Facebook marketplace is another great platform to sell your items. Etsy is a great platform for homemade and vintage items, while eBay is great for preloved, new, and vintage items. It is best to play around with different platforms, depending on what you are selling before deciding on the best platform for your online store.

Here are some tips for selling online –

  • Make sure your descriptions are clear and include keywords so your item appears on search engines
  • Offer great customer service

Offer a service

You can offer a service/course to make extra money from home. If you have knowledge in a niche, you could help others by offering this service. For example, I teach new bloggers how to grow their blog so they can start to earn a living from it.


Another way to work and make money from home is by being a proofreader. Proofreaders are responsible for reviewing written documents, checking, and correcting errors found. It is a flexible way to earn some extra income if you have the skills required to be a proofreader.
