Hello readers! TGIF, am I right? Anyhoo, the purpose of this post is basically to say I’m going to be taking a wee hiatus from the blog. Blogging takes a lot of energy – emotional, psychological, creative and physical – and at the moment I simply don’t have the energy to keep this going. It’s… Continue reading Blog Update
Hands up if you’ve ever given up on something, just thrown something away unfinished, unaccomplished, whether it was a hobby, a job, a dream, a relationship. It’s not something any of us want to admit, yet I think we’ve all been guilty of this at one time in our lives or another. It can be… Continue reading Don’t give up!
Asthma, hayfever, random stomach bugs – I seem to have had it all over the past few weeks and I feel as though I am a mere husk of myself. Although I typically have a rather strong constitution, because my immune system is currently compromised due to my asthma and hayfever (thanks a lot summer!),… Continue reading Keeping your spirits up, when your body is down
My closest friends know that summer-me is grumpy-me: I can’t tolerate the heat, I withdraw into myself, and grow grumpy and irritable as well as starting to doubt not only myself, but everything around me. However, the moment it rains my mood brightens almost instantly. Come winter I have energy to spare, and a bright… Continue reading What is Summertime SADness?
Summer has struck Glasgow, so it’s time for the dresses to come out of hibernation, the tights to be packed away, and my opalescent legs to reflect the sunlight, blinding passer-by’s with the glare. However, as wonderful as that sounds it also means the one summer curse we don’t like talking about: Chaffing. Any person… Continue reading One Quick Trick to Prevent Chaffing

As a creature of habit and routine, I’m glad to be back to full health, as even if sometimes my life may seem chaotic,… Continue reading Are You a Morning Person?
The other day whilst in H&M looking at accessories, I noticed something strange about my fingers, I noticed that they looked like short, fat little sausages – the type you cook up for kids at barbecues that only taste nice if they’re covered in sauce. Chipolatas. I had chipolata fingers. Now, needless to say realising… Continue reading I Got Fat and It Was My (Bad) Choice
I didn’t always have anxiety, at least, I didn’t think I did. I just had insomnia, right? Insomnia isn’t anxiety! Neither is the occasional panic attack… or not being able to enter a venue by myself… or the tight chest when thinking about certain situations… or a very long list of other things that are… Continue reading What is Anxiety?
When I was 11 years old I taught myself palmistry. It was a cheap trick for the School Fair where I dressed up as a fortune teller, and told my schoolmates their "future". However, when I was a teen I began exploring other forms of fortune telling, and by the age of 31 I could… Continue reading Why Are We Obsessed with our Future?
The other day, Ben started a four week course in Mindfulness, and it got me thinking – how can I be more mindful? Is this something I should be bringing into my life also? After an extremely stressful 2016, will being more mindful help me? The answer, quite simply is “Yes”. So, what is Mindfulness?… Continue reading What is Mindfulness?
