    Let’s Talk Aesthetic….

    Ok, so I have a blog. But, something that I have been struggling with ever since the ‘Big Dog’ bloggers got into full force is my aesthetic. I constantly feel inadequate. I don’t spend time fiddling with filters and Photoshop to make my blog look clean and polished. To be…

    New Year, New Me?

    New Year, New Me?

    As 2017 has drawn to a close, I have taken some time to think about all the things that have happened and that I have achieved over the past year. I think that this reflective process is something that pretty much everyone goes through when they are approaching a New…

    20 Things That Brighten Up My Day

    Today I thought that I would do a casual post and a positive one! I don’t usually upload anything but essays onto my blog but maybe it’s time that I mix it up. I’ll admit, I’m writing an introduction because I felt like listing twenty things wasn’t enough content..but as…

    Is ‘Adulting’ Even A Thing?

    Is ‘Adulting’ Even A Thing?

    When I was younger, I used to look at older people and think that they really had it together. ‘They know what they’re doing’, I would think to myself.  I think I got this allusion because it’s generally our elders that tell us what direction we should go in life.…

    Faking it VS being an open book of emotions

    Faking it VS being an open book of emotions

    Why I Ditched Lie-ins

    Why I Ditched Lie-ins

    Firstly, I am not entirely sure what happened to my eyes in this quick doodle. But, to be honest, it’s an accurate representation of what I look like when I rise early in the morning.  Welcome to such a sight. Here I lie; bewildered, wild and racoon-eyed as the remnants…

    Goals & Wishes

    Every year since I can remember I have made New Year’s resolutions. They usually follow the same common theme; Work out like a badass and find my long lost abs.   Eat healthy like sugar was never discovered. Buy less – fill my purse with money not receipts.  Do not drink…
