The Power of Oracle cards

 


As humans it's inevitable that we will experience times that are uncertain and scary. These moments are when we need the most support but we can't always get that from our loved ones. The confused, panic and/or pain can be unbearable. It can feel like our body is screaming for something to ease the situation. But without people by our sides, giving words of support, how can we receive this? Have you considered messages from your guardian angels...

Why I created this blog

Words are powerful and have the ability to transform someone's mood in an instant. In a world that can sometimes feel like a floating ball of negativity, I want to bring lightness into other people's lives. Whether it be to gain confidence or a better mindset, I want to use my experiences and words to help others. This is why I created 'A Meg Journey'.

I survived my first week in a new job... and so can you!


As I write this blog it's Friday evening, the day I just finished my first week at work. This is the first time I've been back in an office since March, in a completely new place and role. I was nervous and excited about starting as I'm sure many people are, especially those of us in our twenties starting our careers. The working world is very different to the education realm we've spent most of our lives in. That's why I thought it would be good to share how you can make your first week a success.

5 ways to start practising self-care

I don't know if it's just me but as the leaves turn into beautiful autumnal shades and the nights draw in quicker, I want to focus more on the little things for me. I know self-care isn't easy as it's sometimes viewed as selfish in our world. However, it's actually a vital practice if you want to be the best version of you.

September is not only the time when we transition to Autumn but it's also my birthday.

THE BOOK EVERY YOUNG WOMAN NEEDS TO READ: 22

Twenty Two by Allison Trowbridge. The first line of the blurb reads 'Never in history has a young woman had so many options before her, yet never has she had less direction or guidance on what to do with them'. I couldn't agree more, especially when it comes to career.

TREAT YOUR HAIR WITH SCRUNCHLEIGHS


If I could only pick one accessory to wear, I think it would have to be a hair piece of some kind. As someone with long textured hair, I love to play around with different styles to make everyday and every outfit feel brand new. I use to be the girl to go into high-street stores to pick up the pieces I liked but as I've researched into fast-fashion, I find myself turning away from those places. With a desire for new pieces still burning I decided to look for ethical affordable brands I could purchase from and that's when I came across Scrunchleighs
