How Flowers Can Improve Our Mental Health ft. The Flower Shops *

AD, Gifted | It’s well known that getting outside, especially in nature, is a great way to improve our mental health. In fact, research has shown that people who surround themselves with flowers, and other forms of natural beauty, – both indoors and out – experience reduced stress, decreased symptoms of depression, and increased creativity. But it’s not only our mental health feeling the positive effects. There are also physical benefits too; from a reduction in blood pressure, heart rate, and fatigue, increased energy, and even using nature as a form of exercise, for example hiking.

30 Spooky Halloween Questions

Happy Halloween! For those of you who celebrate it, I hope you all have a wonderfully spooky day, and for those that don’t I hope you have a great Saturday. 🙂 Today I’ll be doing some Halloween baking, pumpkin carving and having a movie marathon later on.

The Hallotober Tag

It’s no secret that I love Halloween; in fact, it’s my favourite holiday, seconded only by Christmas. So when I heard that Jordanne had created the Hallotober Tag this year, I crossed my fingers hoping I’d be nominated.

So thank you to Claire of Our Favourite Jar, Katie of Life With Ktkinnes, Emily of That Weird Girl Life and Anne of Rooting Branches, for nominating me. 😊 Make sure you read their answers and check out their amazing blogs.

Ways to Celebrate Halloween at Home

This year Halloween has the potential to be amazing; it falls on a Saturday (which means a whole day of spooky fun). There’s a full moon that evening, in fact, the second one this month (called a blue moon). And, for those of who like astrology, the moon falls in Taurus this month too (which happens to be my starsign!)… So it goes without saying that I’m a little bit excited to be celebrating Halloween at home this year. I’m just hoping the sky is clear enough to see it! 🌚 Moonlit walks aside, I’m also planning to listen to […]
