We like to be inspired.
This blog articles on this page are where we can just muse about experiences or people that have inspired us to really live more. They also give us an outlet to express what makes us smile and give us joy. It’s been really worthwhile writing these down, as we sometimes have times when we need to re-read them ourselves:)
We all need continued inspiration, to stay on track, and the products that help do that are on our 3 things each day page- it’s where I can keep quick links to things we buy regularly to live this way. (It’s also where I park up inspiring things that I would love to buy but haven’t had a chance to yet).
What makes you smile?
It could be as simple as a childhood sweet.
If you are Swizzels love heart fan like us, you will understand our wee reference here! The little sayings that come on each sweet make us smile. So you might see this sign dotted around the blog as a sign of showing things we like or love.
You inspire us too
We’re inspired every day, by many or you, so we’ll share the stories, experiences, and quotes that resonate with us. We also see what is bought on Amazon through our links and your inspirations sometimes end up being ours too!
( We don’t know who buys what, but maybe that one of your best buys in the button below!)
You can read more about our journey on ourDAILY MANTRA here, and you can stay in touch with us here.

Helping each other… from cook to chef and beyond
The story behind it… why and how we can help each other, and save money or make money, and simplify life too.
Tools we like
Cooking utensils and small kitchen appliances we like, use, or would love to have. They make great little gifts or big presents for everyone, from cook to chef.
Do you need a holiday from your life ?
Maybe a 6 month holiday… twice a year ! is that what you’re thinking ?
Live simply so that others may simply live
Living a simpler life, and putting the WE before the ME during the pandemic is easier for some. But we’re lucky. We actually love to follow the rules… as well as breaking the norms of course.
How to get the life you want to live, now.
Makes sense to us, and it’s all part of the journey that brought us to our own best life.
The power of endings and beginnings
and, the gifts they give us our nomadic life – No. 12 is my favourite :))
Living the magic …
We don’t need to feel stressed anymore when we can’t sleep… now that we’ve discovered the beauty and the benefit of waking in the night.
Worry less, Wish more
and don’t forget to work hard (in an inspired way of course)
What makes a great chef ?
This fromcooktochef journey really resonates ! A round of applause for this chef and his inspiring story.
Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
With less, we feel we have more. Today we got a reminder how important this is … because we nearly lost it again ! Less stuff, money, stress. More time, fun, living.
and neither can a business ! So what does it mean – to be authentic? ( Think it, feel it, act it, be it ). And, how can you check if you are being authentic or not ?
Be thankful for what you have…
Do you want abundance ? This really works… be thankful for what you have and you’ll end up having more !
