Celebrating International Women’s Day is about celebrating ALL women. If you don’t include trans women, disabled women, BAME women, sex workers, immigrant women and any intersection of self-identifying women/non-binary or fluid folx in your celebrations, that is NOT celebrating women. https://twitter.com/laurbethany/status/971691991905067008?s=21 Today, I want to thank ALL the women in my life. Whether they’ve given… Continue reading Happy International Women’s Day
A wonderfully huge hello to you and Happy New Year! How was your 2017? Quite frankly, mine wasn't great, but I did have some amazing opportunities (I didn't do a reflection post as I did that for my 19th birthday in just November- so not at all long ago). I want 2018 to be okay.… Continue reading Self Affirmations for the New Year
Gosh. Christmas is over. It's been a chaotic blur of working, sleeping, many cups of coffee and spending unrealistic amounts on my loved ones. But so what? It's Christmas! The New Year is heading our way and it won't be long until retailers stock up on their next occasion's merchandise (Valentines comes to mind). Time… Continue reading Christmas 2017 for me: everything from veganism to working in retail
Very kindly I was recently nominated by the beautiful Danielle to take part in 'The Liebster Award'. I've never actually done a tag or award on my blog before despite my two years of blogging, so I feel pretty honoured to have been tagged. It was also amazing to give the other nominated bloggers, and… Continue reading The Liebster Award
Today is the day that Lush have launched Volume IV (volume 4) of their Gorilla Perfumes range. To be quote honest, Lush perfumes are truly the only ones I've ever been interested (as of becoming more mature- I do admit to buying many of those packs filled with Ted Baker-esque companies sampling 10ml bottles in… Continue reading Volume IV launch (Gorilla Perfumes)
It's July 18th 2017. A long anticipated date for me. Today is the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen's death, one which she came to in Winchester. I've visited her grave, of course I have. I've even been to her mum and sister's. But visiting her grave over a year ago now is something I found… Continue reading 200 years on: What Austen means to me
A year and two days ago we lost the beautiful soul that is Hannah Baqar. Many of you may recognise her name- either from me mentioning her before or because she was the top Clara Oswald cosplayer and quite frankly the nicest person in the Doctor Who fandom. She was my first ever friend in… Continue reading For Hannah; A tribute, one year on.
After not having the most amazing Monday, I decided to do some Lush DIY and count it as 'self care'. (I'd wanted to do it for some time and needed a distraction more than anything) I chose to turn my favourite shower jelly 'Deep Sleep' (from the Lush Kitchen) into a shower gel! I only… Continue reading Lush DIY: Shower gel
A few days ago, I made the decision to create a 'studyblr'/'studygram' blog on the social media site 'Instagram'. I did this as my relationship with studying, I feel, is faltering. My education has been severely hindered this year due to ill-health, and that upset me as I am extremely passionate about my subjects. Anyway,… Continue reading Studyblr and bullet journaling
There's something funny about this post; I'm sitting here writing it whilst I would usually be at work, working for Lush. If it wasn't for my EDS, that is (my hypermobile body hates me). I do wish I could be at work today, as I really do enjoy working for Lush and it has massively impacted… Continue reading Blogmas: Day 10. Lush Christmas!
