    A little note…

    If you’re reading this, first of all thank you. Whether you clicked onto my web page by accident or landed here with intent – it’s nice to have you peeping in.  The last time I wrote on this space was approximately a year ago. In that time, I’ve grown so…

    How Much Screen Time Is Too Much?

    How Much Screen Time Is Too Much?

    I can’t decide whether I love or hate the new iPhone feature that tells me exactly how much time I’m ‘wasting’ on my phone. It knows me too well. It observes my habits and aggressively lets me know that I spend half my life on my device, without me even…

    Finding Comfort In A Rented Space

    Finding Comfort In A Rented Space

    As I take my final glimpses of our beloved Christmas tree, I can’t help but smile at the home that my boyfriend and I have created. Although we live in a rented two bed terrace, it truly feels like home. I don’t know whether it’s the recent festivities or the…

    How Reading Became My Therapy…

    How Reading Became My Therapy…

    It’s Jan 1st as I’m writing this and scrolling on Instagram reveals one gushing post about 2018 after another. I have actually really enjoyed looking at everyone’s round-ups and humble brags. I think it’s healthy to show yourself your highlights and reflect on how you spent your year! But here’s…

    Unspoken Thanks: An Open Letter To My Mum

    Unspoken Thanks: An Open Letter To My Mum

    In our lives, there are a lot of unspoken thanks. They’re the ‘thank yous’ that we don’t think to say. We take some things in relationships as a given. After our massive family shake up this year, I’ve started to reflect on my life a little bit. Part of this…

    Stability

    Stability

    Stability. I never really knew that all I wanted in life was stability until I didn’t have it anymore. I guess it was a bit like I’d been riding a bike with stabilisers all this time until someone came and hacked them off – bastard. I’m missing stability. For the first…

    Why I Don’t Follow A Schedule Anymore

    Why I Don’t Follow A Schedule Anymore

    For as long as I can remember, I have followed a schedule. At school I had a battered planner and I even had a personal one for my social life. My schedule was what kept me together. It organised all of my tasks and kept me in check. My planner…

    The Life Of An Anxious Extrovert

    The Life Of An Anxious Extrovert

    My personality is full of contradictions. I am: an extrovert but, I am also anxiety. By definition I am an outgoing, expressive person. I am a socialiser. I am the ‘life of a party’. To be honest – yes, I love to socialise. I don’t enjoy my own space and…

    My Resting Bitch Face

    My Resting Bitch Face

    My resting bitch face is basically my face. When I am resting, I look like a bitch. I’d say it’s a pretty fair analysis too. I’m 20% tired, 15% content with my resting, 30% deep thinking, 35% not thinking about what my face looks like to you. My resting bitch…

    Maintaining Friendships

    Maintaining Friendships

    Ah, friendships. They have never been a breeze. Some friends are in your life for a long time and others are just taking part-time or temporary roles. At least with the part-time or temporary mates they sort of fizzle out. But, with the long-term friendships – you’ll do anything you…
