Reading: Notes to Self - by Emilie Pine

The Gist: Honest, raw, brave and new, Notes to Self breaks new ground in the field of personal essays.

Watching: Sarah Knight on TEDx

The Gist: The bestselling author of The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck and Get Your Sh*t Together, Sarah Knight, outlines her "NotSorry Method" to stop spending time you don't have doing things you don't want to do in her humorous talk.

Why we love it: As big fans of Sarah Knight’s books, this is adding to our ‘Not giving a f*ck’ mantra and helping us follow our passions!


What did we learn this month?

  • Walking and listening to podcasts is the best way to get inspired when you are feeling stuck! Laura C has started exploring options of walking coaching and looking forwards to taking clients out into the Peak in March!

  • Self care is important when working for yourself. We’ve all been making sure we take time out for a little massage or manicure now and again!

  • Queer Eye season 3 is released on Netflix on the 15th March! YAS QUEEN!

  • On Instagram - Laura M is loving @lianafinck’s darkly funny and scratchy cartoons; millennial angst in cartoon form. Also @thehandcraftedstory - all delicious colour palettes and inspiring slogans. 

  • We’ve also discovered Independent retailer - @dotdotdotjewellery. Laura M introduced the account to us and now we’re having to sit on our hands to stop ordering the whole lot.
