On January 1st of every year, Nick and I have a ritual that we do. We get up and watch the sunrise, as witnessing the first sunrise of the year feels like a really good omen to us.

Most of you who have followed me for a while will know I am a conscious consumer and I don’t like waste. I also try to not use plastic and try to limit my waste and carbon footprint as much as possible. I’m not telling you this to get an award. I simply want to share how I have done it.

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I recently threw Nick an epic surprise 40th birthday party. After sharing the details of his birthday bash, I’ve been getting so many messages and questions about how I put the party together and created an unforgettable event, so I thought I would share all the juicy details with you here.
On January first of every year, my husband and I have a ritual that we do. We get up and watch the sunrise, as witnessing the first sunrise for the year feels like a really good omen to us. Then, for the rest of the day we reflect on the past year, we celebrate our achievements and what we learned. We then get crystal clear on what we want to manifest and achieve for the year to come.

If you’ve been following along on my Instagram, you will know that we just got home from a magical three week holiday in Greece. This was our second time in Greece. We went back again this year because last year we had SUCH a great time that as soon as we got home, we booked again for this year!
