The Importance of Pap Smears

The Importance of Pap Smears

Today's blog post is something a little different and for good reason! At the beginning of the year, one of my best friends was diagnosed with Cervical Cancer. At the time she was working with me on-board and quite honestly, we were all completely shocked. Without...

Working With Family

Working With Family

A few years ago I started following a Stewardess called Arina on Instagram! Over the years we would be docked next to each other in beautiful Birish Columbia, Canada, but sadly, we never had the chance to meet in person. As luck would have it, a little over a year ago...

The best part about this social media community of stews?! Watching incredible women flourish in the industry!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
@eloise_moolman & I first started chatting in 2018, a year before she started on her first yacht. In the past few years, I have loved watching her become a brilliant stew and be apart of amazing interior teams. She is such a positive light & it’s a joy to follow along on her yachting adventures.

Ever feel completely overwhelmed?! This week @theyachtstewpodcast is dedicated to YOU 💗

A few weeks ago, a brave stew messaged me sharing that due to Covid, the guest trips on her boat were becoming incredibly long & tiring. The amount of work felt overwhelming and she wondering if it was something I had dealt with myself. And YES, I know that feeling well!

I asked how others dealt with this on my stories and 3 lovely ladies messaged me with their tips & tricks. So I decided to turn these chats into a podcast mini-series. All of the episodes are 15 minutes or less with workshop style teaching.

I hope through this episodes, you find something that helps to release the stress & tension 💗

When looking for a job, it can feel as though you need 8 arms to keep up with replying to emails, updating your CV, staying on top of required visas, continuing your education & keeping crew agents in the loop. 
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But what happens when something is out of your control? What if a previous employer is giving you a bad reference?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨Reach out to that specific person and see if you can reach a resolution (do you now have a greater understanding of their POV? do you feel you can genuinely move on?)

✨Explain your situation to a Crew Agent, so they can speak to the HOD that's interviewing you

✨Be honest during the interview if it comes up, being genuine and upfront is crucial. What did you learn from the experience? How are you remaining positive and moving forward?

✨Ensure you have as many positive references as possible {written references are great, however, it’s even better to have references that are willing to answer calls and emails}

✨Keep you references updated with your plans so they aren't caught off guard with phone calls & have time to prepare

What advice would you give to someone in this situation?!

Let's talk about anxiety.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Last night I fell asleep feeling quite anxious, which meant I didn't have a great sleep. I though I would share what I’ve done today to make myself feel better 🌸💗
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This morning, I wrote out a list of everything that was giving me anxiety.📖 (Even the tiny things!) I then highlighted 3 items that I wanted to work through today & different ways I could turn that anxiety into a productive workday. I then put on my favorite Spotify playlist, lit a candle, stayed in my comfy clothes & started making my way through the list (followed by a 7k beach walk!). Feeling anxious is awful, so I just wanted to share in case anyone else is struggling today! You are stronger than this & I hope you are able to find joy today!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My goal of the day is to mirror this photo of Verconia, @theestew_ and have a moment of pure joy 🥳

P.S I’ll be sharing all of your tips and tricks on dealing with anxiety on my stories today and tomorrow 🌿

Content I have been loving recently...

Pop Chillout playlist on @spotify It's 6 1/2 hours long & perfect for background noise 🎶
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Netflix docu-series called Get Organized with @thehomeedit . Clea & Joanna are organizing Goddesses who are very thoughtful in their process. This show is FULL of brilliant tips & tricks (plus in the first episode they organize all of Reese Witherspoon's movie costumes & who doesn't love legally blonde!) 👱🏻‍♀️

Untamed by @glennondoyle 🌸 FINALLY started this yesterday as I’ve only just finished Finding Freedom (the Megan & Harry book). I couldn’t put it down last night & I no doubt I’ll be finishing this one rather quickly.
