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…

  • Meat eater attending a Vegan Pamper Night…

    GET THE LOOK Hat: Primark, can’t find online. Alternative here. Coat: Primark Jumper: Primark, can’t find online. Alternative here. Skirt: Zara Socks: Old. Alternative here. Shoes: Primark, can’t find online. Alternative here. Photographer: Lina I initially felt really uncomfortable attending a Vegan Pamper Night when I am NOT Vegan. I am a meat eater and not going to lie… I love meat.    I didn’t want to go originally because I felt like I was being fake or I would get a lecture to from Vegans about why eating meat is bad and guilt me into being Vegan. (Another factor was, since I am unemployed, I felt like going to…

  • Celibacy Dating, is it worth it?

    GET THE LOOK Jacket: Zara, sold out. Alternative one here. Necklace: Zara, old. Alternative one here. Top: Topshop, old. Alternative one here. Bottoms: Zara Shoes: Converse Bag: Vintage. Photographer: Romy Binkhorst   In lamest terms. For me, yes. But is celibacy dating worth it for the guy? That is all down to him and how much he wants to get to know me for me.    My biggest worry has always been about the other person.  I originally didn’t want to date while on my celibacy kick because I didn’t want to go into the reasoning behind it and I couldn’t be assed with the bull shit. As I explained…

  • Sex Detox… when you’re just done…

    GET THE LOOK Choker: Primark, old. Similar one here. Jumpsuit: Primark. Similar one here. Handbag: Zara, old. Similar one here. Shoes: Primark My Sex detox was definitely long overdue. Caz had been telling me for a while that I should just cut out guys and sex all together. And I had been mulling it over for a bit but it wasn’t until I had that one last casual sexual encounter… and I realised I’ve just had enough…   As I have previously stated in numerous blog posts (“The back up plan…”), that I am the type of person that I’ll just keep trying until I can not physically try anymore. …

  • Ex’s… friend or backburner?

Similar one here. Shoes: Zara, sold out. Similar ones here.   Can an ex ever be a friend or, inevitably, end up a backburner?    I read an article in the Man Repeller blog by Haley Nahman called “Can You Be Friends With an Ex No Strings Attached?” and it struck a cord with me. Not because I entirely agreed with what was being said… not exactly.  I definitely didn’t agree with her assumption of “If you’re still friends with…

My job situations is very up in the air at the moment. I am having a positive mind set but it is hard.   I have no clue what to do. I do not feel comfortable going into full detail what happened because I may still have to work there for my two week notice period.  But what I said on my instagram post is exactly what happened. My role was going to be outsourced by an external company and therefore I was no longer…

Alternative one here. Bag: Zara, old. Alternative one here. I remember I did this as an option post on my twitter… I tend to do little polls on there whenever I am struggling to pick a topic to do and this one received no votes what-so-ever and I couldn’t figure out why… then I realised my followers probably thought I am going to talk about how sad I was about my parents divorcing – when in actual fact I…

  • Feeling fine at 29…

      GET THE LOOK Jacket: Zara Crop Top: Shein Bralet: Shein Skirt: Primark, similar one here and here Shoes: Nike If you asked me when I left school where I would be at 29 I would’ve probably said married with my second kid on the way and living in Japan, acting as a translator. (When I was 18 I lived in japan for 7 months! When I got back to the UK I just wanted to go back there asap!). However at 29 I have done a 360 and gone in a completely different direction… and I couldn’t be happier!   I have to start by saying I don’t feel…

(other ones I’d wear here, here) Top: Zara Skirt: Zara Wedges: Primark, old (similar here, here) This year’s Mental Health Awareness Month theme is Stress. The Mental Health Foundation did a free report on it. They are a charity that have goals to help people understand, protect and sustain their mental health. I’m reading it now and is very intriguing. . .    The beginning of the report defines stress and it is very interesting. I have never read about the official definition of stress before but growing up I know long term exposure to stress…

But after hearing so much about mental health; seeing the Frightened Rabbit, Scott Hutchinson, losing his battle with mental health and corrie covering the topic of male suicide makes me want to honour mental health awareness month.    I have always been a…
