On Mothers’ Day

Word of warning for the stone-hearted or eye-rolling types: ~emotions~ lie ahead. My Mum and brother are my best friends, but my Mum is also my hero. My Mum, younger brother and me are a very tight-knit trio, having been…

Where’s Your Head At?

I’ve been in limbo lately. Segueing between productivity and sloth, between rage and joy, between calm and anxiety. It hasn’t made a great deal of sense. I don’t know whether it’s just really ridiculous PMS, if it’s the ordinary stresses…

Story of My Skin | Hidradenitis Suppuritiva

If you’re squeamish about body parts and illnesses this probably isn’t the blog post for you; I’ll see you on Saturday for the usual lighthearted content. I’m scared as I write this. This isn’t something I really talk about with…

What I Learnt By Not Showering For Five Days

Hands up if you’ve ever had allergy patch tests done. It’s bloody awful, right? I was diagnosed with contact dermatitis in February last year and after it never really went away, despite the liberal application of steroid ointment, almost twelve…

My 2017 Resolutions in Retrospect

Safe to say that since I posted my 2017 resolutions back in January, I haven’t looked at them since. I had very good intentions, thinking I’d print them out (maybe even laminate them, oo-er) and stick them on the front…

Looking Back On A Year Ago

For someone as outgoing and exuberant in real life as I am, I’m very introspective. I spend an inordinate amount of time thinking about my life and how it and I have changed over the years. The last twelve months…

Figuring Out What I Like To Write

If you’re a regular reader you may have noticed a bit of a change in my content over the last few months. When I first started this blog, it was very much focused on books and beauty. I gradually began…

Finding Time To Read

Considering reading is my main hobby aside from this blog, I really don’t do it that often anymore. I think a lot of people find that the older they get the more their hobbies fall by the wayside. We lead…
