Giving Therapy Another Chance


With today being World Mental Health Day, I thought I'd take the opportunity to share my thoughts on giving therapy/counselling another chance. My past experiences haven't been the best, and so I was apprehensive about giving it another try, but a few months in and I can honestly say it's been the best  decision I've made for my mental health.

Mental Illness and Not Feeling Like A Failure


I'm not one for always putting my mental health before my education. Making the decision to take medical leave from my MA because of depression wasn't one I took lightly, and it didn't come without feeling like a failure.

Friday Five #1


Sharing five things I've been loving during the week; a mixture of beauty and more lifestyle favourites.

Let's Chat | Welcome Back

Long time no blog! It's safe to say that recently pretty much everything in my life has taken a backseat, including blogging. Last year my priority was finishing my degree, with me envisioning

Here's To 2018

Happy New Year! 2017 was a strange ol' year, and I'm rather glad to be seeing the back of it to be honest. Whilst I'm not the biggest fan of New Year, I'm all about having a little reflection of the year just past, and setting out what I want to achieve in the next.


IMATS Haul and First Impressions

This year was my first IMATS experience, I went with my best friend to IMATS London in May and it was such an amazing experience.  Of course, it was the perfect opportunity for some makeup shopping, but there were also lots of really interesting makeup and beauty masterclasses and the special effects makeup was incredibly realistic - brains falling out was sickeningly so! Many of the stands had really good discounts on offer which was rather enabling! Urban Decay was the only stand I saw not offering a discount, but most were 15-20% off. IMATS was the perfect opportunity to try out new things I'd had my eye on for a while so I've been testing everything out since the event, and I'm really pleased with all my purchases!

The Sunday Catch Up #5 | Life Lately

I feel like 2017 so far has been a bit of a whirlwind, almost literally this past week thanks to Doris. It's a cold Sunday, and the weather is looking pretty pants, so I'm having a well-deserved break from essay writing to write a little update as to where the heck I've been.

January Loves

January is probably my least favourite month of the year, it drags on forever and everything is miserable so I'm not complaining to be seeing the back of it! It's also been a rather hectic month with uni work, this is my final year so I'm spending the majority of my time studying and writing my dissertation. I still want to keep up with blogging but for the next few months, it may dip in consistency. I really like bringing all the things I've been loving from a month together so I'm hoping to keep up my month loves posts, speaking of, I've had a fair few favourites this month. A few basic beauty bits and bobs perfect for a wintery evening.
