Dear Instagram

Dear Instagram, Thank you.Thank you for all you’ve done for me. I’ve been obsessed with growing my followers, because you know without a big fat following I’m no one right?

It’s All About ‘Yalance’

It's all about yalance (balance)

I typed in google ‘best UK wellness Instagrammers’ you know for inspiration. A massive mistake that was. I’m not gonna lie I was disappointed.

sibling sexual child 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.

Valley Mill Review

#Ad Things got too much. Life was feeling hard. You know when you go through those times where it feels like it’s just one thing after another? Looking back now, I sort of feel I was being melodramatic. Yeah, we’ve had a trying couple of weeks, but overall coming out the other side of it […]

Getting Over Social Media Addiction

SOCIAL MEDIA DETOX

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.

4 Product Beach Makeup Look 

Minimalist Beach Makeup Look

I’m pretty minimalist with makeup these days. Sometimes I don’t wear any, but some days it’s nice to feel like you’ve made the effort. When it comes to the beach I think less is more, so I only wear four products which are all cruelty-free of course and some natural too. The 1st product I […]

Baring It All: I was Judgemental

Like many of us, I woke up on Tuesday morning hearing about the Manchester attacks and feeling absolutely helpless. I felt broken and emotional.  How could anyone do that?

I Made People Mad, Kirsty Dee

We can’t always keep everyone happy. This I know to be true and truthfully I’m *almost* at peace with that.
