Why I Haven't Been Blogging

I don’t know how to start this blog post, it’s been months since I posted properly I almost feel I’ve forgotten how to blog. It’s been so long that I feel the pressure to get it right. That’s the very reason I haven’t been blogging recently. There was no pressure for me with regards to this […]

Choose To Rise

Choose To Rise

CHOOSE TO RISE A poem by Kirsty Dee   Sometimes you’ll be knocked down, Sometimes you’ll be hurt, Sometimes people will screw you over or at least it will feel like that. Choose to rise.   There will be days when everything feels great, They’ll be days when you wanna say “fuck this shit”  and […]

Styling your home for happiness

#Ad (sponsored post) I’ve been struggling to feel positive this week. I can’t complain, last week I felt on an absolute high and had been feeling great. This week though, urge. It’s been hard.

Screw Your Weight-Loss Pills

screw your weight loss pills

The wellness industry sucks sometimes. I’m sick of hearing about weight loss tea. Whilst we are on it you can shove your weight-loss pills where the sun doesn’t shine too. Sod your shakes and your qualifications, I don’t care for them. I’m over it. Sick of it. That goes for clean eating too. I like […]

What You Do Today Matters

What You Do Matters

What you do today matters. It all matters. The things you say, your actions and whether you choose to rise up to the occasion. Sometimes I think I’m just a small fry and what could I possibly do? The truth is, nobody is a small fry. All it takes is one person to take action to create change. […]

Seaweed That Tastes Like Bacon? I Sea Bacon Review

I Sea Bacon Taste Test Review

#Ad (gifted). Well, it’s not every day you get a press release claiming that seaweed tastes like bacon, only the difference being is seaweed is good for you. So I was intrigued. Does it really taste like bacon? Surely not. Normally this kind of email I roll my eyes at and just delete. Sounds harsh, […]

8 Things To Leave Behind In 2017

Things to give up in 2018

What can I say 2017, you’ve been crazy hard at times, but also utterly amazing. In fact, you’ve been one of the most brilliant years yet. Not because you’ve been super easy, quite the opposite in fact. You’ve been unbelievably challenging twice this year. You almost broke me on a few occasions, but on the […]

When You’re All Cried Out

Group hug

Recently I’ve cried a lot. I cried this morning, I cried yesterday, I’ve cried pretty much every few days this month and to be honest I started to think I was just a bit pathetic. Worrying about everyone I need to buy for this Christmas, worrying about the cost, worrying I haven’t got thoughtful enough […]

Pleasure Is Important – Even If You’re ‘Just’ A Mum

Pleasure Is Important

Do you ever just really like you should be doing something or that there is just always something to do? Until recently I just always felt like I ‘should’ be doing something and that there was just always something that needed doing. Recently I’ve really cut back on my workload. I’ve been doing less with […]
