    Sarah Cumming In Bloom: Finding purpose and (plant) muming

    HAPPY WEDNESDAY BUDS
    Welcome to another In Bloom episode! This week we talk to Sarah Cumming about her journey to finding purpose in her 20s.
    Sarah is Managing Director of Newstead restaurant, Evra and works with Total Fusion Newstead, which led her to becoming quite the yogi. She’s also quite a green thumb with a particular knack for indoor plants so we quizzed Sarah on how we become A+ plant mums!
    And of course, we also bring you our adulting wins and fails and our Adulting 101 resources.

    Honey, I'm home!

    WELCOME BACK BUDS!
    We are SO excited to bring you our first blooming episode of 2021.
    Q: What does a house wear?
    Read to the bottom to find out ;)
    This week we give you our adulting wins and fails, Adulting 101 resources and talk to Britt about the journey of buying a house in your 20s!
    Disclaimer:
    We would like to prelude this chat by saying that we are in no way, shape or form financial advisors. As you’ll probably be able to tell from this chat, Britt was very much a rookie entering the property market. This is her house buying journey ONLY and we recommend you talk to a professional for personalised advice.
    We hope this chat can help demystify the home buying process and give you some basic tips that worked for Britt, which you might be able to adapt for your unique situation!

Real and relaxing

BloomingFan ,

Can’t wait for more!

Can’t wait for more to come! I think everyone is their 20s will be able to relate... how good is adulting hey?

JonathanSM96 ,

A Refreshing Take

Funny and light-hearted, Blooming is a relatable discussion of the nitty-gritty realities of growing up as a 20-something in the ‘10s-‘20s. Both Tessa and Britt are upfront and frank with listeners and it makes the narrative a refreshing and fun experience. More than happy to recommend this to anyone and will certainly be advising my friends to have a listen.
