Positive Vibes | Day 1
We're posting our favourite motivational quotes all week to help you through the most miserable week of the year. The blues ain't nothing but a colour, baby!
I’m a big believer in fate and everything happening for a reason. I feel you do things because right there, right then it’s exactly what you want. Sure, looking back you may think otherwise, but that’s life. Not everything should be perfect and you learn from the mistakes you make.

5 Struggles Every Tall Girl Faces
OK, so you’ve been blessed with a few extra inches and everyone praises you for having legs up to here. And while being a tall girl certainly rules, there's always those little niggles we have to face...Finding a life partnerWe know it’s kinda obvious, but when you’re pushing 6ft, finding a guy or girl who can look you in the eyes without standing on his tip toes can be hard. Tinder bio: 5'11" and under need not apply. People asking if you play basketballJust because you're tall does not mean you play basketball/ netball/ anything else that requires you defending or shooting for a loop on a pole. Props if you do, but some of us don't and never intend to.Searching for the right pair of jeansAnd trousers, and shorts. Ankle grazers might be in, but that doesn't mean we want to show them off at every occasion. Plus we have to shave that annoying three inches of leg every time.Taking a selfieIf your friends are slightly more vertically challenged than you, it becomes that awkward head-tilt, crouch down moment when you look like your neck is about to snap off. OR your thighs are burning from trying to squat while everyone else is sorting their hair. Being treated as a pickerLast time I checked, being over 5’8” didn’t automatically qualify you to get everything from the top shelf. You might not mind as much when a child or an elder is asking, but when your mates think you'll get everything and anything for them, it's time to bring out the ladder.
Top 10 Barista Probs
If you've served your time at any Starbucks, Costa or Nero, you're gonna know that the struggle just gets way too real sometimes... 1. When your manager rings and you know they're going to ask you to do an early open. Sure, I don't need sleep HAHAHAHA (hate you). 2. Then when your alarm goes off at 3.30am the next day. I can't see a thing and I hate everyone already. 3. When you ask for a customer's name and they think you're either A. flirting (relax yourself), or B. give you the fakest name they can think of. 'Grande Caramel Latte for Madonna'Yep, well funny you. 4. Politely asking a customer how their day is going and them actually giving you an in-depth answer. Oh, so your divorce papers finally went through? Brilliant news! This isn't over-sharing at all. 5. When someone asks for a milkshake. Mate, what do you think this is? 'Well, we do coolers if you would like one of those, they're kind of similar' 'No. Just a normal milkshake please, love'. 6. A random person decides to burst in panting/sweating and asking where the toilet is. I mean, why have you left it this late in the first place? 7. Seeing some poor 18-year-old that is blatantly on work experience coming in with a list as long as your leg. Well, this is about to be a sh*t show. 8. When you see a coffee shop newby walk in looking hella confused. Then they ask for 'just a regular, filter coffee'.Let's not do this? 9. That person that is clearly late for a train so they watch every. Single. Little. Move.Stop making me nervous and sweaty. I know you're there. 10. When someone jumps in front of everyone in the queue to let you know that the WiFi isn't working. Oh, sorry, I forgot that I'm also IT support... Don't fret too much though babes. It's not forever. One day, you will get that smell of stale espresso out of your clothes, and your Saturdays will be yours once again.
How-To: Make Monday Bearable
We've all been there... Monday strikes again and the adventures of the weekend are a mere memory. But fear not, it doesn't have to be all doom and gloom, because life is what you make of it. So here's some top tips to sailing through the supposed sad day with a little sass. GET YOUR PLANNING DONE You know what makes Monday less stressful? By getting your life in check the day before. Yes, so technically Sunday is 'the day of rest' but as they also say 'a Sunday well spent brings a week of content.' So dedicate part of your Sunday to prep. What that means is up to you. Whether that's getting your lunches planned and cooked for the week ahead or simply deciding what you're wearing to work on Monday to take that 'I have nothing to wear' moments away, find your stresses and say buh bye to them.GET READY TO A GREAT PLAYLIST I'm yet to meet someone who music doesn't cheer them up. So get your fave playlist on standby for when you wake up. I kick off 30 minutes of music as soon as I step out of bed so by the time I leave for work I'm already on a high.CATCH UP WITH FRIENDS Everyone is snowed at the weekend trying to see partners, friends and family and that's before some dedicated me time. So keeping up to date with your circles can be tough. Use Monday as a day to rally round and reply to all of the messages you've missed. Hopefully you'll hear back off some of your BFFs that day, which will definitely turn that Monday frown upside down!WEAR A KILLER OUTFIT Sure, fashion isn't as big of a deal for everyone and not everyone admits to having a 'style' but whatever you wear day to day is your style. So throw on an outfit that makes you feeling bossin' so even if you don't feel sunshine and rainbows, you'll look hella hot.TAKE CARE OF ADMIN Slightly boring one but there's no better way to clear your head and some of the Monday blues by keeping your life in check. Whether that's bills, replying to personal emails, returning items to shops - get it done. It'll relax you for the rest of the week and come Friday you'll most definitely have that feeling. Win all round.FORGET THE DIET How many times do we tell ourselves that the diet starts on Monday? Well I kinda disagree. Monday can be grim enough on its own merit without having to steer clear of your favourite foods. So have another chocolate button or a handful of crisps. Life's too short.MAKE PLANS Having something to look forward to is the biggest motivation to a Monday. Whether that's a hot holiday or something as simple as a sauna trip with your work wife, a date night with your partner or hitting the shops for a new outfit - get that diary out and start planning.
