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

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 school (and even university), both verbally and via social media so I thought I’d share my experience and […]

MEET PERCY + ELEANOR

MEET PERCY + ELEANOR

Somewhat spontaneously, myself and my husband brought home two 9-week-old kittens at the weekend. We’ve always planned to get kittens, but after our neighbours’ cat had a few, we couldn’t resist getting some for ourselves straight away. So off we drove to Cheltenham to pick […]

MY TYPICAL WEEKDAY MEAL PLAN

MY TYPICAL WEEKDAY MEAL PLAN

As most people often are, I’m currently trying to lose weight and, like most people, I’m finding it difficult. I have a slow metabolism (thanks, Mum) and can’t so much as look at a cake without piling on the pounds, plus with my gallbladder having […]

GET TO KNOW ME / BLOGGER Q+A

GET TO KNOW ME / BLOGGER Q+A

A couple of weeks back, I asked you lovely lot for questions and thankfully you didn’t disappoint! Make sure to check out the bloggers, ‘grammers and tweeters who sent in their questions; their links are provided with each question. I’m doing a YouTube Q+A soon […]

TRAVEL DIARY: CYPRUS 2017

Sunburnt and sleepy, I have returned from my week-long honeymoon to Cyprus. The trip gave me more than just a tan, and you may have already noticed some changes around my blog if you’re especially eagle-eyed! I’ll be getting into that in a separate post. […]
