Whether I've been on a holiday, had a weekend away or simply taken some time off, I always get that dreaded 'back to school' feeling the night before I return to work. Being someone who is often either very happy or sad and nothing in between (damn my overly emotional self!), I guess I just get a little upset about leaving a wonderful time behind and feel nervous about getting back into the swing of things. But I suppose that's normal, right? My time off this week has been just perfect - my mum and I moved into a new two bedroom flat this month (after living in a one bedroom flat for 21 years!) so we've been making it feel like a home. I've also started running again after giving up athletics when I was fifteen and have been spending lots of time with my family, boyfriend and friends. 
 So, here's a little list of things I'm going to do in order to make my first week back pretty lovely. I mean, you know what they say, if you write down your goals you're more likely to achieve them!
Make time for a cup of tea every morning before leaving my house, read a book on the overground to and from work, dress up and wear my favourite clothes every day, make the most of my lunch breaks, go out for a lovely dinner or two, have earlier nights with no internet an hour before bed, go for runs around my local park, treat myself to a hot chocolate/new lipstick/magazine if I fancy it, smile more, don't bring too much of my work home and take each day as it comes. I can do it!
How do you beat the back to work blues? Love, Jazz x

  9. Making time for a cup of tea in the morning is a must. It makes me so happy lol :) After having a super busy weekend I woke up wanting it to be the weekend again so I can rest. Monday blues were super high but I put on some music and danced around a little before heading off to work X


  10. I am absolutely in LOVE with your site and your style. I discovered you on Pinterest and then literally spent all night just browsing through your site! Haha!

  12. What a positive way to start a week back at work! All great ways of living in the moment and more importantly, enjoying the moments! Dressing up in the clothes you love to wear is a big one for me too, I used to think that the clothes I loved were reserved only for 'special occasions' - but then I realised what was the point in buying them if I barely got the chance to enjoy them!

  13. Love this outfit, I think leaving work at work is the toughest thing but so rewarding if you manage it!
