What a Load of Shit: Things That IBS Just Loves to Ruin

So, with April being IBS Awareness Month, I’ve been talking about (or what many people would argue is oversharing) how my little bitch of a digestive system works. For those that haven’t been enjoying this kind of quality content, you’ll be pleased to know that this is my final poo-related post for the time being.… Continue reading What a Load of Shit: Things That IBS Just Loves to Ruin

Craft Gin Club Subscription Box Review | April 2021

Towards the end of last month, I had polished off the remains of the gin from March’s Craft Gin Club box just in time for April’s arrival. This month’s box was inspired by Provence, a region in the South of France, best known for gorgeous weather, delicious food and incredible wine. While there were a… Continue reading Craft Gin Club Subscription Box Review | April 2021

I’ve Started Running. Again.

In an attempt to combat my recently diagnosed depression (I’ll get to that in another post), I’ve started running again. For some reason, I couldn’t get back into my Blogilates workouts after we moved - I think in part it was also due to my IBS starting to flare up again - so I ended… Continue reading I’ve Started Running. Again.

My A-Z of IBS

It’s another IBS Awareness Week post! I’ll be honest, I struggled to come up with an idea for this one, so I turned to Google for some ideas. I’m glad I did, as I came across a blog by Becky Excell, who writes gluten free recipes following her diagnosis of IBS. In particular, I came… Continue reading My A-Z of IBS

Crazy Lady Watches Normal People: Episodes 9 & 10

So, I have some good news and some bad news. The bad news is that I’m still carrying on with this series over almost a year after it was released. The good news?

Although, let’s be honest, when Conversations… Continue reading Crazy Lady Watches Normal People: Episodes 9 & 10

March 2021 Reading Wrap Up

It’s time for another reading wrap up! Also, what the actual F? We’re now in April. I don’t get it. Anyway, as you’ll probably see from this month’s wrap up, I didn’t read quite as many books as I managed to in February, which I’m hoping is in part due to the fact my IBS… Continue reading March 2021 Reading Wrap Up

Tay-Tay Top Five: Speak Now

As we approach Taylor’s earlier albums in my Tay-Tay Top Five series, I feel I should mention that these were albums I discovered much later on following their release. While I was a fan of her songs that were in the charts, it wasn’t until I discovered 1989 that I realised I was missing out… Continue reading Tay-Tay Top Five: Speak Now
