A response to Kim Kardashian's toxic behaviour, in which I promote self love and the instinct of intuitive eating.
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
Mental Health. An aspect of health slowly being spoken about more and more (thank goodness). We truly are getting somewhere with the stigma around mental health, but that seems to exclude many aspects of mental health. Although there still a huge stigma around them, people are gradually understanding depression, anxiety, even suicide, but there's one… Continue reading The harm of ‘diagnosing’ Trump (end the stigma around personality disorders)
By travelling light, I do not mean bagless. Heck, I am the worst at packing and if you saw my lugging my bags around, you'd think I was trying to move in. By 'light', I mean freely.

What I can say is, before the bets were even announced, I said… Continue reading The 13th Doctor

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
Today, a hole has been left in my heart. No, this is not in reference to my recent visits to hospital regarding my heart, but in reference to the loss of someone very important to me; my beautiful little cousin. Now, when I say cousin I fear you'll expect my dear cousin to be a… Continue reading A pawprint shaped hole in my heart
Warning: This post contains mentions of real emotions. REAL EMOTIONS. Beware. Hello lovely humans! So, I've got to say, this week really has not been the best. Heck, it seems like it's been the worst. Just one bad thing after another. But I have been trying to turn that around in any way I can; working through it,… Continue reading Little things, big hearts.
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
