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 […]

PROM EXPERIENCE, TIPS & MAKEUP LOOK

PROM EXPERIENCE, TIPS & MAKEUP LOOK

Prom is a major event in many young people’s lives and is the culmination of all the hard work you did in high school. I had mine in 2011, which was seven(!!) years ago, when I was 16. I remember girls in my year planning […]

WHAT I REALISTICALLY EAT IN A WEEK

WHAT I REALISTICALLY EAT IN A WEEK

I love What I Eat in a Week/Day videos and blog posts, because it gives me meal ideas and I find it interesting delving into people’s diets. However, I have to remind myself that the internet is a funny place and a lot of these […]

WHAT I’VE LEARNT FROM 2 YEARS OF MARRIAGE

WHAT I’VE LEARNT FROM 2 YEARS OF MARRIAGE

It’s my 2nd wedding anniversary just around the corner (it’s February 27th, by the way), so I feel like I’ve been married long enough to be just about out of the honeymoon period, but not long enough that I want to throttle my husband for […]

THE JANUARY EDIT / 2018

THE JANUARY EDIT / 2018

January has taken its time to draw to a close, hasn’t it?! It feels like Christmas is just a fleeting memory, not something that happened a few weeks ago. Perhaps because it’s the Monday of the year, but I am glad to be heading into […]

MY PROMISCUITY IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS

MY PROMISCUITY IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS

In September 2016 I wrote about my experiences at university and why I dropped out. Unfortunately, I received this message from a fake facebook account soon after: This was pretty shocking to read as it’s been years since this sort of comment has been made directly […]

I'VE BEEN AWOL – HERE'S WHY…

My dear readers, If you’re an avid reader (honestly, I don’t expect there to be any of you), you may have noticed that I haven’t been very active in recent weeks. I haven’t posted since December 18th and haven’t replied to a comment in just […]

BEAUTY STANDARDS ON YOUTUBE

BEAUTY STANDARDS ON YOUTUBE

I’m no stranger to hateful comments about my appearance (it’s happened all my life, both online and in-person), but recently I’m getting less comments about the way I look but rather the way I present myself in videos. Most of the comments seem to be about […]

HOW TO DEAL WITH BULLYING AT SCHOOL + MY EXPERIENCE

HOW TO DEAL WITH BULLYING AT SCHOOL + MY EXPERIENCE

I updated this post on 31/08/2017 as part of my #throwback series – it was originally posted on 29/09/2016. Bullying (unfortunately) can sometimes be such a huge part of school life. It can effect your mental health, confidence, school work and friendships. I was bullied at […]

MY SECONDARY SCHOOL EXPERIENCE

MY SECONDARY SCHOOL EXPERIENCE

I didn’t have the best time at secondary school [FYI: our ‘high school’ is from age 11-16/Year 7-11 if you’re not from the UK]  and in my recent poll, you wanted to see some more personal posts from me so I thought with the time […]
