I’m Getting Married!

When I started this blog at the age of 18, in my AWFUL student digs in Wales, I never expected that I would be writing this post. 8 Years later I’m here, sharing with you a story of how I got engaged.

10 Memorable Travel Moments 2016

  Although most of 2016 saw me working and saving hard for the big finale in November (the start of one year in Australia) I still managed to cover three continents in one year. I consider this to be a complete blessing, and even more so because one of the trips was with my Grandma. So far in 2016 I’ve spent…

CHRISTMAS ON THE MOVE

  Most people’s first reaction when I announced, “I’m leaving for warmer climates, ciao!” was, ‘but you’ll be gone over Christmas?‘ After a while it began to irritate me, so what if I was gone for Christmas? I just couldn’t get my head around why people would even think about it. I would be gone for birthdays; what makes Christmas…

ANXIETY | THE PILL, WORK & CREATIVITY

Like an approximate 5% of the UK population (*NHS.uk) I have been diagnosed with Generalised Anxiety Disorder, a long-term condition where struggling with high levels of anxiety becomes a day to day challenge, and produces both physical and mental effects.  In my situation, I had never experienced any problems with anxiety until I went on contraceptive pills four years ago,…

Thoughts on my Masters Degree

Deciding to do a Masters degree requires a heck of a lot of thought. Unlike your Bachelors, they are not covered by the same Student Loans company (unless you do a combined degree, but we’ll discuss that later), and you’re probably having to look at self funding yourself through a year of education to the cost of around £6000, like…

Thoughts on Sexual Assault

I’ve said before on my blog, in a post titled ‘I wore make up, am I single or cheating?’ that I don’t think about feminist issues much. I had believed that as a woman living in Britain, my concerns regarding attitudes to women were best placed to those living in countries with poor human rights records.  Then I realised that…

I Wore Make Up – Am I Single …

I usually don’t bring rants to this space, but I need to clear my head of something I’ve been observing recently. I never usually comment on feminist issues, body image debates, and so on – I try to follow a simple self motto of, ‘do what you want, know that I won’t judge’, and I also don’t expect to be…

Let’s Talk #2 – Blogging

Thought it was about time to jump into my Let’s Talk series, and what better way to start it off than getting right down to the good stuff!  WHY BLOG? If by some chance you’ve stumbled across me and don’t have one of these yourselves, here’s some things to think about. Also, if you do have one, the key to…

Instax Mini 8 Review

My inner hipster died and went to heaven when I was gifted this on Valentines day. I left it for a long time before doing a review, as one of these cameras takes time getting to know. Unlike a digital camera, you have to make your own judgements on what kind of setting you need this camera on to make…
