• Beautiful Things To Do Because… The World Needs Beauty Right Now

    When the world is struggling we can get swept up in the struggle too. Often our first reaction is to let go of joy and playfulness. Of course! Who could care about sparkles when places and people you love are hurting? And I understand that, I really do. Except I know that diving into the media, the rumours, the updates, the worries, is a recipe for me to feel powerless and disembodied. Which doesn’t benefit anyone. The world needs all of us right now, and doing beautiful things is a way we can add to the joy of the world. CLICK TO TWEET: Let’s take action to tip the scales…

  • Guest Post: Beautiful Things To Do Because… To Send a Card Matters

    Pretty By Post was founded to honour those we love with what matters most: fierce loyalty, support and unconditional love. Friendship is a gift to not only be grateful for, but to cherish. In fact, all human interaction should be treated as sacred. How we collectively treat other people, not just those we love, is hugely important. In the digital age, we revert to texts, FB shares and posts to stay in touch with our besties and loved ones. And while we love what technology can do to keep our world small, we can stand for old school correspondence, with elegance.   How do we express our love and loyalty…

    Beautiful Things to Do, Because…. is my way to catalogue all the lovely things happening in the world and to share ideas for having a delightful week. Enjoy and hop on Twitter to share your beautiful things with me. I believe in self-care. I know there are plenty of contrarians who don’t love the concept, and I think they’re right too! Because often self-care gets mixed up. It’s really not about the aspirational or indulgent. Real self-care isn’t photoshopped or Pinterest-or a performance. You don’t need a new body or more money. You don’t even really need more time. Real self-care is about honoring yourself, and acknowledging that you are innately precious.…

I am determined that this world will be better because I have been part of…

  • Guest Post: Beautiful Things to Do…from an Artsy Perspective!

    I hope you enjoy this fabulous guest post from June, one of our amazing Trail Blazers in the Wellness Trailblazers’ Cafe.  A huge thank you to June for sharing her arty suggestions with us here. See you next week, darlings. Grace xx 1. Draw what you see: I’ve been inspired by a visit to the David Hockney exhibition in Saltaire where there was a sequence of artwork on a big screen where he had drawn the view from his window using his iPad. It doesn’t have to be digital – it could be a pencil drawing with highlights done in coloured pencils, or using pastels or paints. 2. Artistic endeavours are a good excuse to…
