Today marks both the end of Lesbian Visibility Week and Lesbian Visibility Day itself! As a lesbian, writing something on this day is really important to me. So, this time last year, I was not out as a lesbian. I've not fully been out for very long now in real life, but it's been a… Continue reading Lesbian Visibility Day
Life is a fast mover, and there's always something new around the corner, whether we expect it or not. Sometimes, it's overwhelming; sometimes, it's exciting; sometimes, it's both. My life has come with a mix of all three, in recent times especially, and those are things I wanted to share with you. PersonalThe first thing… Continue reading A little life update!

This month, I'm asking you to be aware of the chronic and mental health conditions I battle with, and educate yourself.
(1/2) As a disabled person, you get a lot of people knowing little about you casting judgement. Sometimes this is as you're merely going about your day, and sometimes it's facing accessibility issues; unfortunately, yes, they are intertwined more than one would hope, but today I'm here to speak of the former.

I've been wanting and meaning to throw myself back into this blog for a while now, but life got on top of me a little, so I'm throwing myself back in with a bit of a soft post: November in Pictures.

So, it's officially cosy season and typically, i'm more of a book reader and serial re-watcher... but there's a few new TV shows/series I'm excited about, coming out this autumn. Don't worry, if you're more of a literature person yourself, i'll still have my bookish posts going up this Blogtober, but here's a change to go with… Continue reading 7 things I’m excited to cosy up and watch this autumn
