Anaesthetic high

It’s weird, when you are a child you are given constant reassurance, praise and multiple pats on the back for doing things well, or quite honestly, even averagely at times. Adulthood hits and there seems to be this weird shift. Suddenly we might make someone too much of a show off to praise them, too […]

Instagram V Reality

I am working on a piece for my portfolio on the topic of Instagram v reality and thought I would blog about it too from my cheese induced coma, it’s been a while! This time of year is reflective, full of hope for a new year (and decade!) but equally full of sadness over those […]

Body Confidence

How many times have you clocked a beautiful girl, probably “bigger” than you and just thought wow, she looks amazing. I would bet a lot of money that her body confidence and heightened sense of self worth has made her look that bit more attractive than you feel you are. I am such a slave […]

Wedding nostalgia

One of my best friends gets married later this year, it’s a special fairy tale ending so I am extremely excited and all things wedding got me a bit nostalgic for my own wedding, nearly six years ago. Watching the home movie the other day I realised quite how different life is now and tried […]

The resolutions and healthy eating is in full force but I can’t help but daydream longingly back to the chocolate for breakfast, Chinese for tea days of the Christmas break.

Pump it up

The alphabet exercise I shared yesterday got me thinking how it might be an easy way to increase my daily exercise and improve my overall strength. So last night I sat down and put my own achievable exercises next to letters of the alphabet and decided to pick a random word for each day. Today’s […]

Reflection and goals

I find this time of year truly bizarre. As the latest Nationwide advert calls it the “Chrimbo Limbo.” In some respects it is fantastic, days at home with the family as a whole, Mum off work to see her Grandchildren lots, family around who you rarely see but somehow I find myself hating it in […]

Contemplation

Well that’s another Christmas over and another year I’ve eaten to excess and made myself feel ill! 🤦‍♂️ I feel vile but I have drawn a line in the sand and I am fully ready to be back on it tomorrow. It’s really not long until the big 3-0 so I need to stop messing […]
