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 […]

WHY I MAKE NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS

WHY I MAKE NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS

“NEW YEAR, NEW ME” is in every other Instagram caption, like a new number on the end of the date can automatically change someone’s personality. You sigh, knowing that the 1st of January is just another day and has no significance on people’s lives, despite […]

I'VE BEEN AWOL – HERE'S WHY…

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

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 […]

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 […]

THE JOBS I’VE WANTED

THE JOBS I’VE WANTED

Some people are lucky, in that they wake up one day as a child or teenager and realise they want to do a certain job when they grow up, then work until they get there. I never had that luxury – I haven’t wanted to […]

A MONTH WITH KITTENS

A MONTH WITH KITTENS

I can’t believe we’ve had Percy and Eleanor a whole month. You might recall the ‘Meet the Kittens’ post I did when we first brought them home – that seems like yesterday! The kittens are now 13.5 weeks old and have grown considerably, having put […]

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 […]
