I do enjoy a good read of the Huffington Post on a lunch break and i also very much enjoy a good cup of tea (see above blog image for reference!), so when i heard Twinings Infusions were collaborating with the Huffington it was an exciting day indeed!
Twinings Infusions have joined forces with the Huffington Post to create a content portal aimed at us 25-44 year olds with interesting work and lifestyle articles for us to enjoy over a good cuppa! Their first explains the top ten places to work in Britain….looks like we should all be moving to Fleet! The article did get me musing (like all good articles do) about what we should be looking for in our work. We all have dreams and aspirations but most of the time work is work and it pays the bills for all the fun things we do in our spare time! Having worked in recruitment i’ve seen so many different motivations for the jobs that people take and we’re all different at the end of the day, so it’s no wonder that we’re all driven by different things. Mine is good people and a healthy work/life balance, you can give me all the money in the world but if i’m not happy or able to switch off it just doesn’t cut the mustard for me! I’m very lucky to have both a job and a big hobby that make me super happy and really keep me on my toes!
What motivates you in the work place? Tweet me @xameliax and let me know #workmotivation
I’m looking forward to seeing what’s next, i’ve heard there’s some great life refresher posts coming our way on the hub very soon! So enjoy Twinings Infusions new hub with a cup of something hot (their Apple Crunch Fruit Infusions is amazing by the way!)HERE - happy reading everyone!
I love a good date night! Even though I’m in a relationship date nights are a regular thing for me and my man and I think they’re incredibly important for getting some ‘us’ time and keeping things fresh. I love nothing more than getting dressed up in my best, slapping on a hot lipstick colour, curling my hair and heading out for a night with my boy so I thought I’d pop a few ideas down for those wanting to take someone special out for the night…or day!
Who says dates have to be in the evening? Theme parks are a great place for a first date or a fun date in general – lots of laughing, constant entertainment and of course that rush of adrenaline you just can’t get elsewhere! Unless you have a deep rooted fear of roller coasters you can’t turn down a theme park date and it’s a really nice relaxed way to get to know each other. Time spent waiting in queues is a great opportunity to chat and the child-like fun of the rides and candyfloss is a real pull, not to mention being outside in the fresh air and getting some natural exercise in! I couldn’t think of a better way to spend a day with someone I loved!
.Dinner & Drinks.
The classic – a nice restaurant, good wine and lots of conversation. You don’t have to eat in a Michelin star place to have a great dinner date, although I’d probably recommend leaving the groupon vouchers at home – no-one likes to look stingey! One of our favourite haunts is Pizza Express because it’s classy enough to make for a wonderful date night feel whilst not breaking the bank leaving room for a couple of cocktails afterwards! Drinks on a date can be great fun (drink responsibly kids!) so why not hit a nice cocktail bar or a traditional pub with good ale – whatever you’re into – and chat the night away over a good Mojito!
