Diaries at the ready… Powering through January with pen and paper? Of course you’re not!

January for most people is time to start a new.

Forget about any questionable decisions made in the last twelve months and basque in the glory of all that went well.

My hope for January … and the subsequent months is to not let anyone fall off my radar. No more late birthday cards, congratulations three weeks after an event has happened or plan old putting your foot in it.

Take a peek at phones set to launch in 2016 to make our tech lives just that little bit easier, keeping everything in one piece. No doubt they’ll all have some obnoxious alert noises which you can set for those special events – impossible to forget and no more embarrassing slip ups.




How Many Women Can Relate …

Must see explanation of how women end up carrying so much unnecessary junk in their handbags and how their body is not thanking them for it.

Time for a periodical spring clean? I know I need to … right away actually!

Christmas Shopping – Shoulder Struggle

Mission: Christmas Shopping

Date: A Frighteningly Busy Saturday

Location: Concrete Metropolis City Centre

When heading out to complete this mammoth task, list in hand and determination running through your veins be sure to double check a few things:

  1. Only carry with you what you need – take out the spare car keys, garage and office keys. You’ll be amazed at how much they weigh.
  2. Aim to carry shopping in a balanced manner – distribute some of the weight either side of your body, head and shoulders up (optional extra: using shopping bags as a mild weapon when people suddenly stop in your path is completely your call).
  3. An across the body handbag is not only a safe option when in a built up area but also distributes the weight more evenly taking pressure off the shoulders.
  4. If you can shop with debit/credit card only – loose change that you intend to count out but never do can weigh a substantial amount and will be dead weight all day. A regular sized Radley purse filled with change and store cards can weigh in excess of 0.9kg.
  5. Most commonly forgotten – if you’re wearing a hooded jacket or intend going to a covered shopping centre an umbrella becomes obsolete. A wind resistant umbrella can weigh 0.5kg alone.
  6. Be sure to take the pressure off your joints regularly by unloading handbags and shopping bags for approximately 1o minutes – more than enough time to indulge in a christmas coffee or perhaps something a little more fizzy.
