WHO AM I?

WHO AM I?

Who am I? When I quit YouTube, I had to rediscover who I was. For so long, I had been in creator-mode, constantly thinking of video ideas, promoting my ‘brand’ and scouting new makeup releases. After leaving that behind, it felt like I had to […]

THREE MONTHS LATER: AN UPDATE

THREE MONTHS LATER: AN UPDATE

It’s been (nearly) three months since I hung up my tripod and stopped making videos for YouTube. Despite it being the biggest part of my life for nearly three years solid, I’ve quickly become acclimatised to the change in routine. I did think quitting would […]

The Last Blog Post I Need To Write

The Last Blog Post I Need To Write

It’s been a while since I picked up the metaphorical pen and wrote something for this blog. I have to admit, my blog is more of a ‘side thing’ for me, and was always going to be the first to take a hit if I […]

MY FEELINGS TOWARDS UNIVERSITY

MY FEELINGS TOWARDS UNIVERSITY

If you’ve been around for a while, you’ll know that I dropped out of university… twice. I wrote a blog post about it! It has been a couple of years since I dropped out the second time and, after my breakdown in May, some thoughts […]

HOW IT FEELS TO FAIL

HOW IT FEELS TO FAIL

I have been a failure at things throughout my entire life. I dropped out of university (twice), didn’t manage to get a job after around 1000 applications in two years, didn’t manage to successfully learn an instrument… I could go on. There’s not many things […]

I haven’t been abroad since my honeymoon, so when my husband suggested a city break to Estonia to visit a friend who moved there, I jumped at the chance. It’s no secret that money is tight for us, so instead of having to save for […]

WHY I DON’T WANT KIDS

WHY I DON’T WANT KIDS

Let me start the post by saying this: I don’t think anyone should have to justify why they don’t want children. It should just be a normal preference like wanting salt on your chips is. Some people want to have children and some don’t – […]

SPRING FEELINGS

SPRING FEELINGS

A new season always brings new feelings, new thoughts and a new outlook on the year ahead. This is especially true with Spring, I feel, as there’s the hint of warmth in the air and everything feels refreshed and renewed. For me personally, this particularly […]

MY PLANS FOR 2019

MY PLANS FOR 2019

I’ve mentioned before how I want to create more goals for myself in 2019, and how important I think resolutions are for my personal growth, even I don’t stick to them. I think 2018 was a bit of a ‘practice run’ for me; I didn’t […]

HOW I FEEL ABOUT TURNING 24

HOW I FEEL ABOUT TURNING 24

It was my birthday on November 7th, and I turned twenty-four. This year was a notable change in my feelings towards being another year older. Twenty-three was fine. Twenty-two was good. Twenty-one was great. Twenty-four, however, was bad. For some reason, the thought of being […]
