Halloween Tag – My Answers to the Hallotober Tag

In the spirit of Halloween, I thought it was an opportune time to get involved in a fun little Halloween tag – also known as the Hallotober Tag! I was tagged in this by Sabina over at RoseGold Reports, who is a relatively new blogger and I’m so pleased to see new bloggers surface into the community. This a new tag – perfect for this time of year, of course – so I am excited to see how far it goes!

Without further ado, let us get straight into it.

Design Cuts Live 2020 – The best event for designers!

For the past two weeks now, I have been taking part in an incredible event that I just had to shout out about. In honour of their 7th birthday, Design Cuts have opted to host an online event called Design Cuts Live 2020. Whilst it is not a stationery event, it does involve a lot of art and design – and I strongly believe that these things can help improve mental health. At least, for me, it’s been a lot of self-care and really helped me to relax in the stressful times. Best news: Most of this is completely free!

World Mental Health Day 2020 – Mental Health for all

It’s World Mental Health Day today! Every year, the World Health Organization comes up with a theme for the day. Normally, I would encourage you to reach out to your loved ones and see how they are doing today. However, this year’s theme is very apt for our trying times. After the year that all of us have had, the theme is appropriately “mental health for all”. So, today, I think it’s imperative that we all spend a bit of time doing something that helps improve our own mental health. If it’s something that helps others too then even better!

World Postcard Day – Send happiness in the post today!

It’s World Postcard Day – and the anniversary of the postcard itself! Postcards are a great way to send your loved ones something nice to find in amidst all of the junk mail that they likely get. Without further ado, let’s celebrate World Postcard Day today – on the 1st of October. This year, postcards have been providing joy to thousands for 151 years.

Send lots of love, smiles and joy in honour of Thinking of You Week 2020

Thinking of You Week is not a new concept or national holiday. However, this year, it feels much more important than perhaps it did before. Given the current times, there are so many people stuck at home, without loved ones. With another lockdown ahead of us, it’s become even more of an issue. The week itself starts now – on 21st September to 27th September. It focuses on reaching out to loved ones through my favourite medium: physical post. Send a card to someone this week! If you need a card, keep reading for a free PDF of one you can print out!
