On Thursday June 23, a referendum was held on whether the UK should remain part of the European Union. Of the 33.5 million people who turned out to vote, 51.9% voted to leave. To say this came as a shock is a huge understatement – which sounds crazy, I know. It was a referendum, it could only go one of two ways – surely we were prepared for a “Leave” vote on some level? Continue reading

We could write a list a mile long detailing all the reasons we love summer. Atop it, long days, warm nights, and easy entertainment.

We’ve all been there. It’s 2 PM on a Wednesday, and we’re up to our eyeballs in emails. Between work, family engagements, personal upkeep and that little thing we like to call a social life, our inbox has reached maximum capacity. And usually it’s not good news. Another bill due.

Behind every hustle bunny – at least in the infancy of said hustle – is a 9-to-5 gig. Before one can become their own boss, she more than likely has a boss of her own. It’s a fact of life, especially if you discover your passion after incurring a few financial obligations (like a couple of kids, a fixed mortgage, and a copious amount of student loans – basically, ME!) But I’ll let you in on a little secret: your day job and your side hustle combined create a stronger you overall.  Continue reading

By Kate

I’d hardly consider myself a pro in most areas. But, all modesty aside, I’ve become rather skilled at one thing in particular: deciding when I’ll be happy.

Of course, you don’t become an expert at something overnight. This has taken me years of practice and consistent repetition of the phrase.

I’ll be happy when… Continue reading
