Stuff I Sort of Like About Myself

Most people who know me will know that I don’t particularly give myself an easy time when it comes to how I look.

Post Wedding Blues: Why It’s Okay to Have Them

Last week I shared a post about my wedding to mark our fourth anniversary. While it absolutely, 100% was the best day of my life, I wanted to create a separate post on what happened post-wedding, as I feel this isn’t really something that’s talked about all that much.

As today is World Mental Health Day, I thought I’d write a special post to mark the occasion. This was originally written for the event last year, and seeing as it was one of my most popular posts of the 2019, I thought I would update it for 2020. The events of the year have… Continue reading An Open Letter to My OCD | Updated for 2020

Disney, Friends and Fam: A Review of July, August and September

These quarterly reviews sure come around quickly. I can’t believe that the next time I’ll be writing one will be at the end of the year. To be honest, I genuinely didn’t expect to have kept my blog up for this long, so I’m quite proud of that achievement. It’s been quite a good couple… Continue reading Disney, Friends and Fam: A Review of July, August and September
