Rachel Emily with Rainbow Umbrella in front of Pastel Rainbow Houses

Life is a bit of a strange one. One area of your life can be going well while another area gets hit with a wrecking ball.

This is what has happened to me recently with some bad news. As a result my mood seems to be suffering with whiplash. One minute I feel like I'm on top of the world and the next my mood swings and I'm floating around rock bottom.

To combat these giant swings, I've learnt of 7 ways that I can instantly improve my mood for my own sanity and that of the people around me.
Primark Blue Floral Wrap Midi Dress with Cult Gaia Dupe Bamboo Bag from PrettyLittleThing

Every season there is an IT item that everybody just can't get enough of. Shops try to restock as quick as they can and shoppers are desperate to get their mitts on it. This season though I think there is one item out there that has been underestimated. The dark horse of the summer. The midi dress.

Pink Energy balls on wood board in pink bamboo bowl

In my quest to replace some of my less healthy eating choices with healthier options I stumbled across energy balls. I mean who wouldn't want a little energy pick me up in the form of a snack?

My struggle though was real when finding a recipe that worked for me as so many recipes featured either peanut butter, almonds or walnuts and using substitutes I couldn't seem to get the balls the right consistency to stay as balls.

After much kitchen experimentation I have found a combination which works. It has oats for energy, no refined sugars and protein to help fuel your muscles. The taste fresh and will leave you wanting 'just one more'.
Rachel Emily with Scarf Ponytail Hairstyle in Primark Bonjour Tee in Clifton, Bristol

The scarf ponytail is my new go-to summer hairstyle. It looks chic, fun and on-trend while sweeping your hair back off your face, which is a dream in the current heatwave. What's even better is that the length of your hair doesn't matter and your ponytail goes from an average 6 to a strong 9 within seconds.

Bloom & Wild Hand Tied Bouquet Workshop Flowers with Gold Hello Letters and Candle in Vase

If you've seen my instagram, or been to my house you'll know that I love fresh flowers. The smell, the aesthetics and most importantly the calm they bring into a home is something I adore. As the season changes the blooms can reflect the weather, your mood and make your house really feel like a home.
Thatchers cider with the tannin table and apples at Pasture Bristol

Being born and raised in Bristol it's true to say that drinking cider runs in my blood. There is simply nothing more refreshing on a hot summers day than to open an ice cold cider and sit in the sunshine.


Typically my cider of choice is something fruity and not too dry, I know what I like and I tend to stick to it. Or I thought I did until Thatchers invited me to a Cider pairing evening at Pasture in Bristol.
Rachel Emily Running Along the Bristol Harbourside

So a couple of months ago I had a moment of insanity and put my name into the hat ballot for the London Marathon 2019.

Now to highlight the scale of crazy that this is - I'm best known for running a bath instead of actual running. If I really push myself then I can run a mile in about 12 minutes and I practically have to lie down for a good solid hour afterwards before my legs will even thinking about moving again.
