My Favourite Songs Right Now | World Music Day 2020

Sunday 21st June was World Music Day, so I thought today I would honour the occasion with a special post. Music plays a pretty big part of my life, as I’m sure it does for all of us. I have playlists for pretty much everything - an anxiety playlist, a getting ready playlist, a cry… Continue reading My Favourite Songs Right Now | World Music Day 2020

Craft Gin Club Subscription Box Review | June 2020

The arrival of my Craft Gin Club delivery is probably my favourite part of the month. My god, what a sad little life, Jane. Although, we’re currently on day 1 million of lockdown. Drinking is all I have. Anyway, last month I decided to start reviewing my monthly gin club deliveries, and today is my… Continue reading Craft Gin Club Subscription Box Review | June 2020

The Therapy Diaries 1 | School Counselling

Today, I’m kicking off a new series of blog posts entitled “The Therapy Diaries.” Pretty much what it says on the tin. I recently read a book called My Shit Therapist and Other Mental Health Stories by Michelle Thomas, which is an incredibly honest and relatable account of living with mental illness. I’ll be posting… Continue reading The Therapy Diaries 1 | School Counselling

May 2020 Wrap Up

I don’t know about anyone else, but despite the fact we’ve been in lockdown for the whole thing, May has actually been a pretty fast month. As of the 1st June, we're allowed to meet in small groups of 6 as long as it's outdoors. Great for those gagging to get the BBQ out, not… Continue reading May 2020 Wrap Up

Lockdown Silver Linings

I’ve seen a few of these posts over the last couple of weeks so I’ve decided to create my own. While the COVID-19 pandemic has well and truly fucked EVERYTHING up, a good way to keep our sanity can be to have a look at the silver linings of what lockdown has meant for us.… Continue reading Lockdown Silver Linings
