Goodbye

I wrote this at 21.52pm, on Monday the 9th July, 2018, the day before my Dad’s results. Tomorrow (or today, as you read this), Tuesday 10th July, 2018, we recieve the results of my Dad’s Cancer scan. People wish for many things. Some people wish for wealth, some for happiness, some for material objects. Every…

Starbucks

I actually haven’t had a Starbucks in ages, but I’ve been fancying one a lot, lately.  I was scrolling through my Instagram and I found that one thing that accelerates the closer you get to 2012, is images of my hands holding Caramel Coffee Frappuccino’s with extra caramel syrup and drizzle, over and over again….

Self Love

‘Self Love’ can seem like a bit of a narcissistic phrase. It is strange, isn’t it? We so easily say, that we love objects, other people, clothes, places, and things, but find it difficult to say that we love ourselves. We live in a little bubble of fear, kind of like dipping your toe into…

A Letter to my Younger Self

Hello, hi, how’s things? You probably don’t recognise me. Yes, you’re covered in tattoos. I know, needles right? Nearly fainting having your bloods taken, but able to do a five-hour sitting of intense shading and colour, all whilst on your phone and reading. Weird right? I know, I’m not sure where it came from either….

Do No Harm

The Great Depression

  I can’t quite comprehend just how my mind works. I’m still trying to work it out to this day.  My depression, is a thick mucus inside my brain, that I’m just dying to scrape out from around it. It makes my head feel heavy, my eyes feel warm, and my mouth feel numb. It…

£1 Shoes and DIY Facemasks

I love nothing more than spending my money, guilty as charged! However, lately I’ve accidentally stumbled across a couple of alternatives to usually more expensive treats, and I’ve been desperate to share them! I can sometimes spend more than £60 on a decent face mask. I absolutely love the instant gratification of having glowing skin,…

The event was in panel style, and in true blogger form there were many questions and moments of inquisitiveness from both the Brands and the Bloggers in Attendance.

Truth: First Time Buyers (and First Time Sellers)

The Things They Don’t Tell You About Buying and Selling Houses – by someone who has bought and sold a house. We bought our first house when we were 18. It was a brand new, two bedroom semi detached house with a two car drive. It was right by the sea, and it was perfect…

Sneering At Fat People

When I came across a page about the ‘monstrosities’ that are ‘fat people’, I couldn’t help but feel like there was something wrong. I had a gut feeling, and I knew scrolling was a bad idea. And then I found it. A thread, dedicated to me – (and I won’t go into to much detail…
