Silent Survivors of Sibling Sexual Abuse

After my letter to my younger self, I had an outpouring amount of messages from victims of child abuse. It was sad and yet beautiful. Sad because it shouldn’t happen, ever. Beautiful because people were opening up and I believe that’s where we start to heal. One woman after over a decade made a statement and that is something that isn’t easy to do. This … Continue reading Silent Survivors of Sibling Sexual Abuse

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.

In May 2006 our … Continue reading Raising Awareness: Meningitis

It ebbs and flows, depending on the situation we find ourselves … Continue reading The Fear: Autism Awareness

Switching To Natural Cruelty Free Makeup

I’m been into natural skin care for some time now, knowing how bad a lot of the ingredients are for us in the run of the mill skin care. Makeup is, however, something I’ve been a bit slow to make the transition with. Not because I don’t think it matters, just because I’ve used a few natural makeup products in the past and they’ve been … Continue reading Switching To Natural Cruelty Free Makeup
