My spring skincare routine

My skin struggles a lot when the seasons transition, especially from winter to spring. It gets dry and dull and like I’ve lost all the life in my body. I have to switch up my skincare throughout the year to keep up with the weather, and I think I’ve finally managed to fine-tune a combo…

Some songs I liked in 2018

  My ‘some songs I like’ Spotify playlists have been a staple in my life since the beginning of 2017. Every month, I add every song that I’m loving, old or new, to a playlist, and at the end of the month, I add all the songs to a big annual playlist of songs I…

A little life update & New Years resolutions

Welcome to 2019 everyone! I’m setting myself a challenge this year. I don’t know why I’m doing that, to be honest, because this year is already shaping up to be quite busy and I’m not sure if I can do it, but I’m going to try! When it comes to resolutions, I don’t have the…

There are more important things in life than boys

Recently, I did something that I swore I’d never do. I let a boy get in the way of my education and my career. I turned down opportunities and spent more time on a relationship than I did on my work, and it sucks. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s important to place huge…

It’s ok to admit you’re sad.

I’m writing this 13 hours after me and my (ex) boyfriend broke up. I just had to take a 3 minute break to cry because that’s the first time I’ve said ex. I’m sad. I’m really, really sad. I wanted to write this because I feel an overwhelming pressure to be ok. I should be…

Matt Groening’s “Disenchantment” isn’t just The Simpsons with royalty

The first half season of Disenchantment has its rough patches, but it wins out. Advertised as “The Simpsons meets Game Of Thrones”, Matt Groening’s newest series succeeds by establishing friendships between unique, likeable characters who are led by their basest urges. While the intro hints at a new-place-every-episode adventure (think Rick and Morty), the show…

How to identify a fuckboy

There are a lot of amazing men in the world. Some of my best friends in the world are boys, and I would trust them with my universe. This post is not about those boys. Between dealing with it myself and helping my friends with them, I’ve experienced my fair share of fuckboys, and I’ve…

Forcing myself to engage with self care

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Anyone who knows me knows that I am not good at looking after myself. I often forget to eat a meal, my sleeping pattern is horrendous and a life without back pain is a distant memory. I cram my days full of stuff to do, but I never remember to…

My favourite break-up songs

Disclaimer: This post is not written by a heartbroken girl in the middle of a breakup. Before any of my friends read this and send me a panicky text with a thousand questions, don’t worry, my Facebook relationship status isn’t about to be changed to ‘it’s complicated’ with 50 comments from people I haven’t seen…

I’ve changed, and that’s ok.

I’ve just taken a huge risk. Contrary to the advice of everyone I asked, and ignoring the trembling in my gut, I deleted my blog. I can practically hear my mum screaming “what have you done!” and she doesn’t even know yet. It wasn’t a decision I took lightly, or quickly. It’s been bubbling around…
