Unpretty

I recently downloaded not one but two new apps onto my phone. Nothing new there, most of our lives are more or less managed with a cheeky app or two – but these are for photo editing. Which is fine in itself but after spending a good hour the other night doing ‘minor touch-ups’ to a selfie, I had to stop and have a … Read More Unpretty

Guest Post: Why I love My #Selfie

I can’t remember exactly when I stumbled across Hayley and her lovely blog A Stitch to Scratch but it feels like a good couple of years ago. I’m very glad that I did too, as Hayley has an aura about her than not a lot of people do. She’s so talented as well, knocking up some really interesting pieces, from toys to secret books … Read More Guest Post: Why I love My #Selfie

Guest Post: She Just Might Be Out of Her Mind, Well She’s Got Baggage and It’s All the Emotional Kind

This week’s Guest Post comes from one of the most beautiful writers I know. I’m not a fan solely for the stunning prose and vivid imagery conjured up by her words, I’m also a bit of a fan girl for the frank way in which Lydia speaks. She’s also incredibly inspiring when it comes to her inner strength and I hope she knows it. Lydia … Read More Guest Post: She Just Might Be Out of Her Mind, Well She’s Got Baggage and It’s All the Emotional Kind

Since we’re half way through the year I thought it might be fun to recap and see where I’m at with those. Instead of being all list-y, I’ll break this into lifestyle categories I think. Travel & Adventure Well, … Read More Goals – Six Month Check Up

The Pursuit of Happiness: Hair

I’ve decided to start my own Happiness campaign which sounds cheesy AF and it is but fuck knows I need it right now. The concept of happiness to me is ever-changing. Every now and again, and don’t get me wrong I’m not miserable or sad as I type this, I just feel like I need a joy injection. Just a little something that delivers … Read More The Pursuit of Happiness: Hair

Abusive Relationship

Just. Left just in time.

Writing 101: Day 7 – Hook ’em with a Quote

Writing 101 – Day 7 (Tuesday 15th September 2015) – Hook ’em with a quote Today’s assignment is pretty cool. Big fan of the written quote. But what to use and why? That is the question. My first instinct was to use this one: “Comparison is the death of joy.” ~ Mark Twain I like this quote because it’s so true, and I drop it … Read More Writing 101: Day 7 – Hook ’em with a Quote

Love Your #selfie

Sometimes you’ve just got to spend £27 in Superdrug on new make-up then come home and put it all on, despite having nowhere to go to show it off. I could find somewhere obviously, but Netflix. I’ve been feeling pretty shitty about myself lately. I won’t lie, despite my vow to stop worrying about ageing, I still have the odd wobble. I sometimes look … Read More Love Your #selfie
