Caffeinated thoughts #1

You may, or may not, recall me speaking about starting this little series quite a while ago. Truth be told, it got lost in a storm of half finished attempted blog posts that have managed to pile up in my drafts. But with the temperature dropping and the tint of festivity to the air, I…

So many questions, so little time.

Hello my loves. So another Monday has been survived and we can safely say the toughest part of this week is over. I hope everyone is doing well, and is loving the autumnal weather! I have recently created a board on my Pinterest called ‘questions’, which, as the title may suggest, is quite literally a…

‘What do you do all day?’

Hello my loves. I laugh a lot about this question, because it’s fair enough. I’m out of school, have a very small social circle and really 12 hours sometimes seems an awful long time. I thought I’d do another one of these Day In The Life type things, but this one is going to be…

The people who unintentionally save my life everyday #2

So a while back I did a post very similar to this. It was very mushy and all that but it gave me an opportunity to really be honest and vocalise my gratitude towards a few particular people. The internet is a very, very weird place. Yes, we all sat through those assemblies. ‘Never talk…

The August Update – Puppies, relapse and finding motivation.

Happy September! I am buzzing today all because of a word on the calendar. But seriously? Autumn is finally upon us and I couldn’t be happier if I tried. Not only that it’s cold and frosty outside this evening – eek! So I have been kind of absent from blog recently and I am sorry…

May in photos 

Is it just me who’s absolutely terrified by the prospect that we are already over half way through the year. 2018 is closer than 2016.. erm what?! For me the year almost stops in October, because I love love LOVE that time of year and it always goes so quickly. Less than 4 months till…

Sunday Evening Routine

Sundays are such a good day. Especially Sunday Evenings. I love using Sunday evenings as a bit of an excuse to get into super cosy pyjamas and gather every snack in sight – you’ve got to start the week of right I guess! I’ve decided I really want this blog to be a super cosy…

Summer Seasonal Affective Disorder (yes it’s a thing)

I have spent the last few summers miserable, irritable and tearful. Needless to say, it was difficult to distinguish whether I actually had an issue with summer, or was simply going through a rough patch with all the other disorders that decided to pop up now and then. Last Summer was quite definitely the least…

The unavoidable bloating- Anorexia recovery.

Fact: People bloat. Fact: It is normal for our stomatch to stretch after a full day of eating. Fact: You’re going to bloat. Even though it is absolutely one hundred percent normal and temporary, it doesn’t make bloating any less 1) Painful  2) Easy  3) Triggering. When you start increasing your calorie intake, you won’t…

Toast.

I used to love toast. For breakfast with layers of sweet honey, dripping over the sides, along with a coffee with a good amount of milk and sweetener. Or strawberry jam, the kind that is filled with berries that  explode on your tongue on a side dish along with your bowl of cereal and breakfast…

Rice cakes four ways.

If you know me then you’ll know I’m pretty rubbish at cooking food. Not in the ‘puts salt instead of sugar in’ but in terms of actually eating it. Usually, by the time I’ve finished cooking whatever, I will have overthought it too much and will then feel unable to eat it. I can just…

How I’m Leading a Healthy Lifestyle.

I have recently been thinking about how much of my daily life is consumed by thoughts of food, calorie counting and deciding whether to eat or not. It is really difficult but I am now beginning to see how important leading a healthy lifestyle is. No, it is definitely not a sudden full recovery, and,…
