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….

£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,…

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…

C*****

It all started with the ‘C’ word. And it ended with the ‘F’ word. ‘C*****’ they said. ‘It’s definitely that. No doubt about it.’ It just seems to roll off their tongue. They say it day in, day out. It’s such a normal word to them. But it offended me. Everything around me stopped when…

Keeping Up Appearances

There must come a point when we are tired of hating what we see in the mirror. When we give up on giving up on ourselves. What is the point of carrying on through life; disappointed by what you see in reflections, feeling underwhelmed when something doesn’t look as good on you as it did…

The ART of: Saving it Until Tomorrow

I am guilty of saving things for tomorrow. I sat here to write this at 1pm on a Monday afternoon, and I saved it as a draft. I thought, I’ll probably post it later. I strongly believed in keeping things until a better time, a more appropriate time, a time I might enjoy it more….

Dear Victoria’s Secret, Cardiff

Dear Victoria’s Secret, Cardiff. I am a very open minded person. I rarely jump to conclusions first before trying something out for myself. I am more than happy with myself, although there are some things that I would like to change, I’m in no particular rush to look any certain way. The bags. The signature bags. All…
