Something wicked this way comes….

So, how have you been?

I’m good thanks, I know it’s been quiet here, but there’s been a lot going on behind the scenes….well, mostly in my brain, but still! 😅 I’m still trying to be vegan, and taking life back to basics in general. I’m focusing on self care & spring cleaning my life, nesting in my new home (it still feels weird to own it even now). I still don’t know what to do about the business… I still feel disconnected from it, but I’m slowly being creative again, so I know Stitches & Stars will continue, just not right now.

The blog is going to be more of an alternative lifestyle blog for now, so if you’re interested in spooky aesthetics, witchcraft, tarot, feminism, toys & general nerding out, great! If not, well…this is kinda awkward 😅

Hello 2018!

A12D8F56-E102-4EA5-96AB-9B60FA4C360D

Crikey, where does the time go?! Today is the first day of 2018 and I still can’t get over how much everything has changed in a short time! This year is the first time in really…well ever, that I’ve found my own confidence, and I’ve felt as happy and as peaceful as I do.

So for this year it is really important for me to stay motivated and live the good life.  I want to cut back on material things and declutter, keep being creative, spend time with my people and find the magic in every day. 🙂

Since we all know I love a good list, I thought it’d be neat to make one of goals, priorities and things to do…although, like me, it’s a work in progress!

  • Keep being brave.
  • Make time for self care.
  • Do yoga/pilates regularly.
  • Be more vegan
  • Cook more.
  • Restart Stitches & Stars (and rebrand!).
  • Read 36 books.
  • Watch 52 films.
  • Get the spare room/studio sorted.
  • Listen to more music.
  • Create for fun – not just for the business.
  • Make my house a home – well, more so!
  • Spend time with the people that matter.

I know, I know…exercise, eating better…not groundbreaking goals for New Years’ resolutions but then I guess you can’t beat the classics! For me they are also tied into self care and my mental health. It’s a catch 22, when they fall by the wayside, I know I’m struggling…but when I’m struggling, its so hard to look after myself. However, I can only do my best, and that’s what I plan to spend 2018 doing! So no more beating myself up, avoiding issues or putting up with shit. 2017 has shown me that I’m stronger than I ever thought possible, and that I have so many ridiculously lovely people in my life, so I’m all set.

I really hope 2018 is kind to everybody.

Much love, Jess x
