Feeling Spring Ready with CaseApp!

First up, HI BBS! I realise I’ve been M.I.A the last few weeks; in truth I lost my mojo and ran out of blogging fuel (where do you buy that stuff anyway?!). I took the opportunity to just give myself a break and take five – I never like to force anything out or put…

Mental Health: Coping with Loneliness

Being an introvert, I’ve naturally always enjoyed my own company; I’m productive, I can please myself and there’s no pressure to be someone for anybody else, y’know? I am my own comfort zone & I’ve been just dandy with that. The only thing with having made myself my own comfort zone is that I’ve essentially isolated myself at times. This all…

5 Things That Totally Kick-Ass Women Have Taught Me

Happy International Women’s Day! I’ve actually been so overwhelmed by the amount of love women have shown each other today; my social media has been chock full of inspirational quotes, empowering messages and shout-outs, and although today is technically International Women’s Day, I’m so happy to be living in a world where women are supporting & empowering…

Is Social Media Bad for Our Mental Health?

It’s no secret that we’re all a little bit addicted to social media – it’s our window into other people’s worlds, it’s great to see what our pals are up to, it’s perfect for showing off our work, achievements or family; but it’s also a breeding ground for needless comparison, envy & false advertisement. What…

Review: Moonlight Melts – Handmade Soy Wax Melts

So just a few short weeks ago I was very kindly sent some gorgeous soy wax melts by the lovely Jo over at Moonlight Melts – now I was chuffed as a button to receive these because not only have I ever used wax melts before (I know), but these looked just so scrumptious! Better yet, they’re all…

Mental Health: Hitting a Bump on the Road to Recovery

It’s a pretty long journey, the road to mental health recovery. Many of us struggle for years to even see the road, let alone be on the road. Not to mention the fact that recovering and getting yourself to a better place has no time period on it – with a graze on your knee…

My Fitness Diary: Creaky Knees & Porridge Potty!

Yep, you read that title right. My knees are creaking more than my Nan’s floorboards and it’s not pretty. Mind, I have been working on the ol’ pins a lot the last week & a bit, so I should probably expect to hear some occasional body groans, right?! I’ve been running, went pretty hard on the bike,…

‘The Self-Care Project’ – Why You Need This Book

Ok, so first things first, this is not a book review. Not really. It’s more of a ‘this book is brilliant, you should go buy it, it’ll change your life, do it, do it now’. So… sort of a review? Kinda. The term ‘self-care’ is bandied around like nobody’s business these days – in fact so much…

My Fitness Diary: Here we go!

So I’ve mentioned in some of my previous posts that I’ve started taking my fitness a little more seriously – aside from the fact that it’s about time I get my arse toned, it’s also proven that exercise is great for those of us who suffer with poor mental health – and hey, I’m up…

A Very LUSH Valentines!

So I popped into Lush a few weeks back and they had just released their new Valentines range – safe to say I was happy as a lamb on a cloud! Lush makes me all fuzzy inside anyway, but their Valentines range is so pretty. I only picked up a few little bits, but I thought I’d…

Time to Talk Day: Let’s Start the Conversation.

For those of you who don’t know, today is ‘Time to Talk’ Day – a day dedicated to making sure we’re talking about mental health. To begin a conversation about it, to help be there for others, to know we’re not alone – to end the stigma. It’s fuelled by a movement of people called…

My Mental Health: January Reflection

Can you believe the last time I wrote a reflection was August?! I think the months that followed were just too hard – I ran out of adrenaline pretty quickly and as positive as August had been, I just couldn’t keep up the momentum. I saw each looming monthly reflection as a challenge that I…
