How I Went Freelance

Hi friends! Maybe you’re here because you want to know how to go freelance, but I’m going to say it right off the bat: I don’t know! There’s no one right way. On today’s episode of the Monthly Memo I’m talking about how and why I started freelancing. I haven’t done a Monthly Memo since April because… to be honest, there’s not a lot going on in lockdown! And my only updates sucked. They were like “I’m missing my wedding today” and “I miss my dog a lot” – not exactly fun, blog worthy material. On the other hand, since April I’ve been working away at becoming a freelancer. And here we are.

My Skincare Counter

the body shop skincare routine - vitamin c cream, facial stimulator, drops of youth serum

I’ve had a love/hate relationship with skincare. I’m definitely not the person who has always had a retinol, or a vitamin C, or gua sha in her skincare routine. Instead, I’m a solid: I put moisturiser on regularly and I clean my face before bed every night. I’m interested in the rest of it, but I’ve never really taken the time I needed to learn about skincare in a deeper way. Until now, that is. I’ve not been wearing much makeup lately, and I’ve replaced my makeup ‘me time’ with skincare ‘me time’!

Monthly Memo – I’m officially unemployed

Well, this is an awkward one. I bet you thought this monthly memo would be just another life update from quarantine, but really it’s a ‘my first month as an unemployed person’ on top of that! Oh, the joys. Life is weird right now. I’m making noodles to eat while I write this because I have such a hard time wrapping my head around all the little things I need to say. Snacks make it easier. This is your 1 minute warning, if you don’t have a snack, go get one! Then, read on.

Monthly Memo – A new normal

Monthly Memo - arcticsabrina in Tallinn

Hello everyone, happy April! March was a weird one, wasn’t it? Weirdly, this monthly memo is pretty tame! We started the month with an exciting weekend getaway to Northern Europe. A week after we got back to Edinburgh, we were working from home and in isolation. It’s not that I didn’t see it coming… It’s more that I didn’t expect the UK to take it as seriously as it should (and now kind of has). Here’s what in March, and what my goals are for April.

Monthly Memo #4: Going Back to School

Going back to school….? Kind of. November had a lot going on. I’ve started prepping for Christmas, we’ve got our tree (put it up way too early, let’s not talk about that), we’ve got some decorations and we’ve got some gifts, score! November was also a month of trying to get that work/balance life right. And a month of trying to get plants to grow in the flat and how to make it less grimy and more Instagram. A month of trying to keep the flat clean. Also, it had a few weeks of rabid illness thrown in, and a bit of excitement here in there. Most excitingly, my work went on our away days and I started my new apprenticeship. Don’t worry, I’ll explain this whole brain dump.
