I remember when I decided to completely change direction at the end of 2013, I was TERRIFIED that I wouldn’t be able to find an ‘audience’.  I’d struggled to get to 100 subscribers in the course of a year in my previous business, and I just couldn’t see how it would be any different with […]

Don’t look at me. (I have a lazy right eye).

By Cerries | Mar 24, 2016 | 10 Comments

I have a lazy right eye. I’ve always had my suspicions, but trying to take the obligatory, half-decent post-haircut selfie a couple of days ago confirmed it. Thirty three attempts later, I managed to get a shot where Right Eye looked relatively normal. A lazy eye. Add it to the flabby stomach and double chin […]

Why I’m no longer using my Bullet Journal.

By Cerries | Mar 5, 2016 | 18 Comments

A few weeks ago, I published a pretty epic post called ‘My Complete Illustrated Guide to Bullet Journalling’. (You can find it here). I could never have imagined how popular that post would become in such a short space of time.  However, in honour of my love of all things unconventional, I’m following it up […]

Do the little things.

By Cerries | Mar 1, 2016 | 20 Comments

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the small things. I’m thinking less about growing my list…and more about appreciating my readers. I’m trying to make a bigger impact…with a smaller to-do list.  I’m letting go of the need to ‘go big’…and being content with finding fulfillment in the small things in my day.  Today […]

How a fridge got me the perfect VA.

One of the questions I get asked aaaallll the time is this: “Where did you find Erin???” If you’ve interacted in some way with my work, chances are you’ve met Erin. Erin is my Chief Joyologist. And she’s SO good at it. Our relationship started two years ago, around this time of year.    It […]

I’m back to square one with my purpose…and it feels good.

By Cerries | Feb 17, 2016 | 14 Comments

  During 2013 – my first year being self-employed – I was clear on my purpose. When I initially quit my job, my intention was to earn a living being a brand identity designer.  Design and branding are all I have ever known. From my pre-school years, to the work experience I had for a branding […]

This is the year I save my life.

By Cerries | Jan 9, 2016 | 6 Comments

                    This is the year I save my life. I know that may sound pretty drastic and extreme, but my current health issues have reached a point where drastic and extreme action is exactly what I need to recover. I’ve been wanting to blog about my […]

Behind the scenes: My financial goal for 2016.

By Cerries | Jan 8, 2016 | 22 Comments

I’ve always had a BIG dream: To own a beautiful house in the country, where the summer breeze wafts in through the open stable door, and I can gaze out over my scented garden whilst I sip tea at my kitchen island reading the latest issue of Ideal Home. I’ve had this dream for as long […]

My 2015 in numbers. And pictures.

By Cerries | Dec 30, 2015 | 24 Comments

  Well…what a year THAT was. 2 = website hacks (1 = male enhancement site my domain was temporarily redirected to) 3 = times I’ve switched platforms in the effort to find the perfect home for my Initiation Kit (I think Gumroad is now “the one”) 6 = total number of days it took me to create and launch […]
