Why 2018 WAS My Happiness Year

Guys. 2018 was a good year. I don’t say that lightly, in fact I say it with a slight air of disbelief because between me and you (and you, and you, and you) I was miserable for a long ol’ time. I’ve pretty much existed my 20’s away, succumbed to years of debilitating shitty mental health…

Why I’m Taking a Break from Instagram – & You Should Too.

I think I’d be pretty spot on in saying that a lot of us have had it up to here *gestures vigorously to forehead* with Instagram. In fact, I’d go so far as to say it’s the most toxic social platform I personally have. In short, I got the hump with it & decided about two weeks ago…

Making Time for Me | Collaboration with Adexe

I don’t know about you, but I’ve always struggled being ‘okay’ with making time for myself – is that weird?! I dunno. I just feel weird about it – I’m one of these people pleasing folk who constantly utters the words ‘you choose’ or ‘I don’t mind’ – when in fact, I might do a…

Our Summer Adventures! (So Far!)

Hola my loves! OK first things first – a big fat grateful virtual huggingtons to everyone who’s read my previous post on toxic family & the effects on our mental health – for all the likes, the sharing of it, the comments, the messages of love & support, the texts and the phonecalls. You’re all bloody marvellous…

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…

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…

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…

How I’m Working on ‘Happy’

You may remember my post ‘2018: My Happiness Year‘ – it summed up in a nutshell or two why I’m determined for 2018 to be the year I allow myself happiness. Sounds like a small feat doesn’t it? Strangely enough though, us humans aren’t always the brightest when it comes to putting in the necessary steps…

Guest Post! How Fitness Has Changed My Life

Have I got a little treat for you today! I asked my beautiful best pal to pen a post for me to tell you a little bit about how fitness & sport has changed her life. It’s no secret that exercise is good for you, but I know I speak for a fair few of…

5 Reasons You NEED to See ‘The Greatest Showman’!

So I recently made use of a very handy Meerkat Movies (shout out to Oleg & Co.!) and went to see The Greatest Showman – the newest musical to hit cinemas! Now I know I don’t normally talk about films on here, in fact I don’t think I ever have so this is a first for me!…
