Letter from the blogger: Revamp

March 31, 2020

Phew, what a YEAR!

I cannot believe it has been a full year since we chatted.

But rest assured, I have thought about you often and missed you sorely, my dear blog.

I’m reviving G&J in a world of social distancing, working from home and a lot of screentime. But also during a time when it’s more important than ever to focus on health and wellness.

So you can look forward to a sh*tload of new content and tips that I’ve collected over the past year… and over the past two weeks while settling into this new normal.

Happy you’re here and we’re reunited. 💙

xo,
Pia

I Save Money By Not Acting Like An Adult

Lemme say it right off the bat: adulting is hard. Since I’m about to graduate uni, I’ve been thinking a lot about what being a bona fide adult really means. Waking up a normal human hour, look at the credit cards to apply for…

How to Kick Stress in the Butt with 5 Words

I don’t consider myself an especially competitive person. I motivated by simply enjoying what I’m doing rather than external pressure. But alas, sometimes I find myself harshly comparing myself to other people: how I look, what I’m doing, how I’m doing it, how I…
