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

I’m Struggling

It’s been a bit of a strange month. Once I got back on track post Disneyland, I had scheduled blog posts right up until the beginning of October, I had several of them written and ready to go. I was feeling good. Then, things took a bit of a turn. I originally planned for this… Continue reading I’m Struggling

My Teenage Mixtape

I’ve mentioned before that my husband and I are discovering new podcasts for our commute to work. A particular favourite of ours has been Off Menu with Ed Gamble and James Acaster, which I wrote a themed post on a while back. After the series ended, we became quite keen on finding something else to… Continue reading My Teenage Mixtape

Birthdays, Butts and Comedy: A Review of April, May and June

I can’t believe we’re now in July. It’s crazy. It’s been quite a busy three months since my last quarterly review, and I’ve actually been finding that I’m doing more stuff because I want to have stuff to write about. Is that weird? I guess it’s good in a way because it means it’s encouraging… Continue reading Birthdays, Butts and Comedy: A Review of April, May and June

Anxious Ramblings 2 | A Journal

I’m struggling at the moment. I’ve been battling with this all week and I’m at the point where I’m not sure if I can take anymore. I’m not even sure why I’m posting about it. All I know is I needed to get how I’m feeling out in someway. I suppose I could have written… Continue reading Anxious Ramblings 2 | A Journal

A Letter to My Younger Self

When I was first looking at ideas for my blog, this was one of the suggestions that kept popping up. I've attempted to write this a few times, but I struggled. What age did I write to? Was I writing to prepare them for what was to come or was I writing to them to… Continue reading A Letter to My Younger Self

My Dream Meal As Inspired by the Off Menu Podcast

If you haven’t heard the Off Menu podcast, I strongly recommend it. Hosted by two of my favourite comedians, Ed Gamble and James Acaster, they interview a guest each week who picks their dream menu, with foods from any meal at any time of their life. Their guests range from fellow comedians to actors and… Continue reading My Dream Meal As Inspired by the Off Menu Podcast

My Night Out Make Up Essentials

I don’t go “out out” very often, so when I do, I like to go all out with my makeup. I never used to do anything special, but since getting better at doing my makeup, I go that little bit extra when it comes to special occasions. So today, I’ve decided to share a few… Continue reading My Night Out Make Up Essentials

Self care is a phrase that we see quite a bit lately. This Psychology Today article defines it simply as you taking care of you. But why is it so important? Mental health charity Mind says that self care techniques, along with general lifestyle changes can help us to manage mental health problems and the… Continue reading 5 Easy Self Care Tips

About Me

My Handbag Essentials

I was quite reluctant to write the whole what’s in my bag blog because I wasn’t sure if anyone actually cared. I’m not famous and I’m not any kind of influencer, so why would anyone be bothered? But actually, I’ve seen a fair few “What’s in my bag” posts across the blogging community so I… Continue reading My Handbag Essentials
