• “Loneliness is part of your biology…”

        This is quoted from Kurzgesagt  – In a Nutshell. An educational youtube channel that Jack introduced me to. Loneliness is part of your biology – this is linked to our basic instinct to go into groups to survive. But does it have to be? What is Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell all about and how did I find out about it? At first glance it looked like a fun, school friendly educational youtube channel explaining complex issues/thoughts/ideas in a simple and aesthetically pleasing manner. Which, as you can see from the screen shoot of their about page below, it is! (Love it when your first impression on something…

  • Is adulting overrated…?

    Adulting IS overrated… but necessary. Life is hard and there is shit you have to do even if you don’t like it.  What is adulting? I’ve seen this word used quite a lot.  In fact I use it on a daily basis. I’ve been having to do a lot of adulting recently – acquiring a new full time job, that requires the limited spare time I have left to do the ‘adulting’ menial tasks before leisure time. Which in turn means it floats across my brain a hell of a lot.  The dictionary defines ‘adulting’ as;  “the practice of behaving in a way characteristic of a responsible adult, especially the…

  • The 2018 Review: Part 3 (The Last one!)

    September   Celibacy Dating, is it worth it?   It feels so weird re-reading this as I was chatting about celibacy dating then and now I am currently chilling in my room with my boyfriend… and we definitely don’t have a that sort of dynamic! Ahaha. It feels weird because I’m in such a different place now. This post talks about how I tend to put the others feelings before my own – especially sexually. I would usually feel quite frustrated and annoyed at myself. I felt my inhibitions were stopping me from utilising sex to its maximum capacity. I am too busy being in my own head and worrying…

  • The 2018 Review: Part 1

    Lets take a trip down memory lane, in my 2018 review. Not because I didn’t manage to get any photos scheduled for this weeks post… *cough* but because it is the last post before 2019 and I am very organised and smart to do this post 😀 *cough*   But despite my complete lack of foresight for this moment, aka not having a shoot organised for my last ever 2018 post, this couldn’t be a better opportunity to look back and reflect. Which is basically the traditional mindset that people are usually feeling at this time. I think… its hard not to at this time. When something ends its usually…

  • Podcast or blog?

    GET THE LOOK Jacket: Primark, old. Alternative here. Cheaper alternative here. Shirt: Primark, mens shirt. Similar here. Under Top: Primark Scarf: Primark Jeans: Zara Ankle boots: New Look   What is more important? What spreads the personality more? Podcast? aka audio or blogging aka the written word?    I’ve been thinking of this for a while now… audio or the written word? or written word over audio?  Basically whether or not to start a podcast.  I think it is a natural step forward for me? I’ve been talking about it on and off for while now with folk on the side. Not too in depth because I don’t want to…

  • How do you know your being brave?

    GET THE LOOK Jacket: H&M Top: Primark Skirt: Primark Shoes: Primark, old. Alternative one here. Socks: ASOS, old. Alternative one here. Photographer: Connull Drummond That is the question on my mind… how is bravery defined? Is being brave something that can be defined with in a blog post? Can you be brave when your scared all the time? I have my own definition of bravery… and that has changed several times throughout the years.  When I was younger bravery was loud, dramatic gestures – like running into a burning building to save someone. Or jumping into a lake to save a puppy.  These are all grand gesture of bravery… for…

  • Everything happens for a reason, heres why…

    GET THE LOOK Jacket: ASOS, old. Similar one here. T-shirt: ASOS. Dress: Zara, old.Similar one here. and alternative, fun one here. Belt: Topshop, old. Similar one here and alternative one here. Trainers: Primark Scarf: Old Pressie. Photographer: Connull Drummond  It’s such a cliche isn’t it? Everything happens for a reason. I know people hate cliches but I don’t. They are cliches for a purpose. Check out my thoughts on cliches and this one in particular.   My go-to online dictionary has defined a cliche as a noun that “is a trite, stereotyped expression…a popular or common thought or that, that has lost originality… impact by long overuse”. Of course it…

  • Why am I a no make up blogger?

    GET THE LOOK Jacket: Zara Women, old. Alternative here. Top: Topshop, old. Alternative here.  (I would get this mens t-shirt and cut it up to make it cropped.) Choker: Zara, old. Alternative here. Trousers: River Island Shoes: Marks & Spencer, SOLD OUT. Alternative here. Bag: Present from Mum (No idea where its from sorry.) Alternative here. Why me doing me isn’t a dig at you doing you. The reason behind me deciding on being a no make up blogger came up the other day at work. Therefore I felt the need to write about it.    I decided to become a no make up blogger… yes thats right. From my…

  • Work to Live? Or Live to Work. Is one better?

    GET THE LOOK Jacket: Zara Jumper: Primark, can’t find. Alternative one here. Jeans: Primark, can’t find. Similar one here. Shoes: Converse Photographer: Connull Drummond  Is there a better one? Work to live over Live to work? I suppose to think of this efficiently you need to understand the meaning of each. I know you know the saying, but I’ll bet your definition is different than anothers…  Everyones interpretations of sayings can be quite mixed. Which is awesome cause then it can lead to an open discussion.  I’ve been listening to a lot of podcasts recently, so I’ve been hearing ALOT of open discussions. I’ve switched from listening to music to…

  • My first trip to a Prison…

    GET THE LOOK Hat: Primark, cant find online. Alternative one here. Jacket: River Island, similar one here. Top: Zara Skirt: Zara Bumbag: Zara Boots: Depop, similar one here. I make it sound like a class trip or something…but there is no other way to put it. Today (Friday 12th) marks my first trip to a Prison. It was nerve racking and intimidating as fuck.  I actually had my mind set on writing about a completely different topic. I had the layout all set in my mind and I even had a beginning, middle and ending planned out.  Which is unusual for me. I tend to just write by ear. But…
