Blogtober First: A re-introduction to Stories Can Make Us Fly!

For 3 years straight I've done Blogmas, and I loved being able to post every day, but... if you know me, you'll know my season is autumn over winter, any day. So, this year, I'm taking Blogmas on a more suited whirl and choosing to partake in Blogtober, instead! I've also been fairly quiet so… Continue reading Blogtober First: A re-introduction to Stories Can Make Us Fly!

What PRIDE means to me

Pride is something I've been raised to have a careful balance with. Before, I never really knew why that mattered, but in more recent years, I have most certainly used it to my advantage.

Although I don't guarantee a solstice/equinox post over here, I do bring my own spirituality into things I write frequently whether within a whole themed post or small aspect merely influenced by the spirituality in daily life.

Tick, tick (the unspoken)

Tick, tick- Two years since I knew something wasn't right, I knew- just not what. I thought I deserved it. Deserved what? What was wrong? Two years since I cried, I cried, I cried until my sadness, my hatred turned to sheer emptiness- a void (where a whole heart should have been). You were my… Continue reading Tick, tick (the unspoken)

LOVE Summit 2018: #LushPride

I have never felt pride like the pride I have felt over the past few days, surrounded by the most phenomenal LUSH employees. By pride, I mean the word in two senses; Proud of the people around me and myself for all we'd achieved; Proud of who I am and who I love. The theme… Continue reading LOVE Summit 2018: #LushPride
