Why I notice everything.

According to everybody who knows me well, there are a few obvious things about me. Some of which are noted in files tucked away in psychologist’s offices, some of which are actually pretty irrelevant but just as obvious in everyday life. For instance, I’m pretty shit at admitting I’m mistaken or incorrect. I blame my…

The update you’ve all been asking for.

Hello guys. I’m aware my blog has been lacking in personal content recently, and if you follow my Instagram you’ll know I’ve not been in the best state mentally. I’m finally feeling better and I know everybody has been asking for an update so I’m sat here with a cup of coffee and my laptop,…

Pro Ana. My take.

I actually spoke to my sister Annie the other day and she asked what Pro Ana was. I didn’t see the point in bullshitting some PG answer so I told her my take of it all. I said ‘basically people who encourage anorexia, and extreme dieting. They think anorexia is a lifestyle.’ Kind of wish…

What not to say.

All the following statements were said directly to sufferers who follow my Instagram. ‘I mean you aren’t as bad as the PROPER anorexics, you know the people who are really scary thin”. ‘It’s just a phase’ ‘You’re not that skinny’. ‘You know there are children actually dying from hunger in Africa? You’ve not got a…

Why I’m a feminist.

You’re lucky women just want equality, and not revenge. Let me tell you what the word ‘feminism’ actually means.  “to define, establish, and achieve equality of genders.” I think people have this deluded idea of what a feminist is – perhaps the fact the word has ‘female’ interpreted in it, causes people to immediately try…

How to notice.

Mental health problems aren’t existing as metaphorical movie references. That’s not real life. They’re not whispered secrets to friends, cold meals left at lunch. You’re never going to find the answers protruding from the cracks of  their wrists. So how can we notice,  if there is nobody screaming the truth from a window or stringing…

50 Things I want to do in 2018.

Hello petals – over the past few days I’ve been thinking of things I’d like to do achieve in 2018, as I am putting all my energy towards making this year better than these last few years. Some of these things are really small, some are pretty big, so prepare for a rambly post. Travel…

How to thrive

How to thrive like the beautiful bean you deserve to be. Eat whatever the fuck you crave. A pint of ice cream? Cheesy pasta? Grab your fork and dig in. If you’ve just eaten five meals and are still hungry – then eat something else. Listen to your body. If you’re hungry, physically or mentally,…

My Christmas Checklist

Hello my loves, sorry for not being the most active in regards to blogging, everything’s been a bit hectic but I am suddenly in a very festive mood as Christmas is fast approaching. *Excited festive squeal*. So I decided to sit down this evening and write a Christmassy little blog for you all, watching a…

Be in my head for a day.

7am – alarm buzzes and I open my eyes. It’s that familiar few moments where I get to grips with the fact that I have to get up sooner rather than later. It’s also the moment where I grasp how my brain is going to be. This morning = not so great. I don’t get…
