3o Before 30

30 Before 30 | Revised Edition

My 30 Before 30 has been a longstanding project on my blog, and quite frankly, I’ve been failing miserably at it. At first, it was largely due to me being a lazy bitch, but then it became something I could blame Covid for (let’s face it, it’s fucked up everything else). Since then, I’ve had… Continue reading 30 Before 30 | Revised Edition

Craft Gin Club Subscription Box Review | September 2021

As I sit writing the intro to this post in October, I genuinely can’t believe how quickly September came and went. I am so bloody ready for autumn though - I’ve already changed my wardrobe over and my little Halloween ornaments are already sneaking their way into my bookcase. Anyway, let’s go back to the… Continue reading Craft Gin Club Subscription Box Review | September 2021

Childhood Bangers | Sounds of Me Part 1

It’s time for a brand new series of posts, and they’re all about music and nostalgia (don’t worry, they won’t be completely centred around Taylor Swift, either). I’ve been inspired by a fellow writer within the creative community to create this post, and that’s the fantastic Dom G.

Lessons From the Classroom – Child Development

Okay, so I’m assuming that by already reading this title you’re pissing yourself laughing. “Ames, you’ve stated many times you hate kids!” Yes, yes I have. I hated them even more when I was fifteen. Yet, I still picked Child Development as a GCSE. Why? Your guess is as good as mine. Perhaps I unconsciously… Continue reading Lessons From the Classroom – Child Development

Lessons I’ve Learned From Having Contamination OCD

Today, I’m talking about the things I’ve learned since getting diagnosed with OCD. Of course, I realise now that I’ve suffered with OCD for way longer than I realised, but these are things that I’ve learned over the years since getting my diagnosis in 2016, and more importantly, since the start of the pandemic.

Things OCD Has Genuinely Made Me Think

Anyone who’s followed my blog for a while will know I have OCD, but for those who are new followers, here's a little back story. I have OCD. It’s largely based around contamination fears (obvs bags of fun being in a pandemic), but I also struggle with compulsive checking and intrusive thoughts. I believe my… Continue reading Things OCD Has Genuinely Made Me Think

Craft Gin Club Subscription Box Review | August 2021

Guys, Taylor Swift was right. August really has sipped away like a bottle of wine. Or, in this case, gin. As per usual, today’s post is all about the recent offerings from Craft Gin Club in their August box, which is inspired by the rich cuisine and culture of Singapore, aka. The Lion City.  Disclaimer:… Continue reading Craft Gin Club Subscription Box Review | August 2021

August 2021 Reading Wrap Up

I'm apologies for my longer than planned hiatus from blogging. Things got a bit too much - I tried my best to get my blog out twice a week but it just didn't happen. So, I made the decision to take some time off for a bit. Except it didn't really feel like time off,… Continue reading August 2021 Reading Wrap Up
