I used to think of depression as poetic, maybe even romantic. Crying softly into the chest of a boyfriend, having the tears tenderly brushed away, being rescued from the sadness much like you see in the films, waiting for your hero. No one prepares us for the reality. Last week a bout of depression crept… Continue reading Who’s Going To Save Me?
As I write this I'm sitting in bed with the curtains draw, there's clothes scattered around the floor and dirty dishes cluttering the sink. A world that isn't glamorous, nor would it look 'full' to a lot of people, not whilst there's exotic corners of the world to discover, incredible food to taste, history to… Continue reading Are You Living Your Fullest Life?
During my time at secondary school we attended a class known as PSHCE. I can't remember what it stood for and I can't remember what we learnt, I guess it was meant to teach us about life and the ways of the world, obviously they did a fantastic job because, here I am, thriving. As… Continue reading Stupid Girl, This Is Your Choice!

A question that has been flitting around my mind recently, Am I recovered? Maybe in the grand scheme of things I am.

In light of the recent tragedies unfolding in the news with celebrities and well known figures taking their lives I've seen a… Continue reading Start the conversation
Your skin is too pale, too moley, too blemished. Your face is too freckley, too spotty, too different. Your legs are too veiny, too wobbly, too bumpy. Your stomach is too fleshy, too rounded, too much. Your eyes, squinty and uneven. Your lips, thin. Your teeth, crooked. Your laugh, brash. Your voice, common. Your personality,… Continue reading Sweetie, I’m Sorry
Long drawn out days spent basking in the sun. Hazy evenings accompanied by a glass of wine. Sticky nights with the hint of a breeze slipping through the cracked window. Summer. The idea of summer fills me with a warm glow, as if I were already sipping cocktails by the pool. The reality, however, leaves… Continue reading A Social Media Summer
I'm apprehensive to open up this topic of conversation as I've found both sides of the debate to, on occasion, be accusing and allow little to no room for compromise. These subjects are polarising, with innocent discussions turning into a battle ground of right and wrong, pure and impure, healthy and unhealthy. There are those… Continue reading What Do You Mean You’re Not Vegan?!
Sometimes life is super hectic, super strained or quite simply you just don't want to spend a lot of money on ingredients or a lot of time on an elaborate dish. Today I looked in my fridge and I'll be honest, it's pretty empty and looking a bit sad, but there, tucked away in the… Continue reading Yummy Tum Tuesday: Putting All Of My Eggs In One Pan
