Anxious Ramblings 5 | Contamination OCD and the Coronavirus Pandemic 2: Electric Boogaloo

It’s been awhile since I’ve talked about the C-word properly in relation to my mental health, but as lockdown rules are very slowly being lifted (or at least, they are at the time of writing), I feel it’s probably time to address it again. In honesty, not much not has happened since you know...lockdown. My… Continue reading Anxious Ramblings 5 | Contamination OCD and the Coronavirus Pandemic 2: Electric Boogaloo

Craft Gin Club Subscription Box Review | May 2020

Some of you may be surprised to know that I love gin. Jks. I’m sure it’s common knowledge on my blog by now that I essentially have gin pumping through my veins. I only discovered it about two years ago but since then it has become my tipple of choice and I’ve had many horrific… Continue reading Craft Gin Club Subscription Box Review | May 2020

Top 5 Gifts for Pet Lovers | AD

This is a paid for advertorial. As a self confessed crazy cat lady, I love animal themed gifts. The fact I love animals so much - particularly cats - often makes me quite easy to buy for when it comes to gifts, and over the last few years gifts for animal lovers have gotten bigger,… Continue reading Top 5 Gifts for Pet Lovers | AD

28 | Quarantine Edition

The 4th of May was my 28th birthday. As I write this I’m feeling that post-birthday comedown and feeling quite sad that it’s over for another year. Spending my birthday in quarantine wasn’t particularly the celebration I expected, but overall, I had the best day. In spite of everything, it was one of the best… Continue reading 28 | Quarantine Edition

April 2020 Wrap Up

It feels like not that long ago I was publishing my March wrap up, but I guess that’s because I got it out there pretty late.

My Favourite Blogilates Workouts

If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you’ll know that when it comes to working out, my go-to is always Blogilates. I discovered Blogilates back in 2018, when, after I decided that I didn’t want to run in all weathers, I opted for some indoor workouts. I had a Davina McCall DVD that I… Continue reading My Favourite Blogilates Workouts

Life Lessons

Call me naive, but I had my cold little gin soaked heart set on this lockdown at least being eased in time for my birthday on the 4th May. But, it wasn’t to be.
