SOCIAL MEDIA DETOX

Getting Over Social Media Addiction

I’m a huge fan of social media, it gets a bad rep but a lot of the connotations associated with the digital era I think are flawed. I wrote about that already though.  There is one problem without a doubt about it. It’s addictive. I’d personally became very addicted. I felt I was constantly chasing my tail, feeling behind on everything and utterly overwhelmed. I … Continue reading Getting Over Social Media Addiction

rewriting the wellness industry

Wellness Is Not All Green Juices & Yoga

I want to rewrite the wellness industry because wellness is not all green juices and yoga. Sometimes it’s pizza and bitching. It’s doing what needs to be done to release all the crappy thoughts you’re having. Sometimes that means saying screw it to the diet or admitting you don’t wanna forgive. It’s giving yourself permission to judge, rant and rave if that’s what needs to be done. … Continue reading Wellness Is Not All Green Juices & Yoga

The Crop Top Challenge

You may remember a while back I mentioned I was doing the crop top challenge for Race For Life in June. In the end because of family commitments I couldn’t take part. The method in my madness was that, it would give me a super good incentive to get in shape. I’d need some serious confidence to pull off a crop top. At the time … Continue reading The Crop Top Challenge

A Day Of Self-Care

A Day Of Self-Care 

Yesterday I woke up feeling emotionally drained. I’ve been grinding hard recently and sometimes that go-go attitude catches up on us. Negatively and anxiety hit me right in the face. I could feel myself worrying about stuff that I didn’t need to worry about, wondering what if it doesn’t work out? Not wanting to let it beat me I knew what I had to do. … Continue reading A Day Of Self-Care 

Embracing Femininity, women in lingerie & jeans on a tree in nature

Embracing Femininity & Body Confidence 

Ever since being a teenager I’ve struggled to love my body. I’ve struggled to embrace my femininity and have body confidence. My boobs are small. My hips are two dress sizes larger than my top half. I have cellulite, stretch marks and ‘beauty’ spots. I’ve never got back to my pre-baby weight and that ‘baby’ turns 3 a week today. I’ve felt ashamed and embarrassed … Continue reading Embracing Femininity & Body Confidence 

Baring It All: I was Judgemental

Baring It All: I Was Judgemental

Like many of us I woke up of Tuesday morning hearing about the Manchester attacks and feeling absolutely helpless. I felt broken and emotional.  How could anyone do that? Lives taken and kids too. When someone innocent loses their life you feel it, but when it’s children you can’t even process it.  In one instant your whole world can be changed. The parents, the families, … Continue reading Baring It All: I Was Judgemental

I Made People Mad, Kirsty Dee

I Made People Mad & I’m Sorry

We can’t always keep everyone happy. This I know to be true and truthfully I’m *almost* at peace with that. I say almost because let’s be honest it doesn’t feel nice to upset, hurt or cause someone to feel angry with you.  I know it’s impossible to keep everyone happy and people pleasing is totally overrated, which is why I’m pretty much fine with people … Continue reading I Made People Mad & I’m Sorry

The lie we are all being fed

The Lie We Are All Being Fed

We are told we are all living in an narcissistic world, where we all take selfies and over share too much. Where we get upset because our posts don’t get any interaction. Simply because we compare it to once upon a time where we’d write dairies and be mortified if anyone was to read them. We mock people for their social media presence labelling them as … Continue reading The Lie We Are All Being Fed
