I’ve been blogging about Mental health for seven months which wasn’t my original plan when I created my blog. That doesn’t mean I’ve forgotten why I started my blog in the first place as raising awareness for Periventricular leukomalacia will always be my ultimate goal. You can read my 10 things to know about PVL. Yet since sharing my journey through Postnatal depression even though sometimes it’s challenging it’s been so rewarding. I thought I’d… View Post

Have you Ever woken up on the wrong side of the bed and just felt, meh!?! Ever had an argument with someone that has put you in the worst mood EVER? I actually wake up feeling like this quite regularly, An important decision needs to be made! I can either roll over & forget the world (let's be honest being a Mum this doesn't happen often) or pull myself together the best I can. Here’s… View Post

 I have done a few posts in the past touching on the subject of self-care including Why self-care is important and 21 simple ways to practice self-care. For me, being so hugely into self-care I wanted to share everything I have in my “self-care toolkit.” For me, it depends on the time of day (morning versus evening) and what kind of mood I’m in. If I’m feeling really good, the things I pull out of… View Post

Over the years I have tried many different ways to learn how to love ME, flaws & all. For the most part growing up, I always believed I needed to be thin to be happy, to be attractive & to be successful. I’ve abused diet pills, I survived off 1 banana & 1 bowl of soup every day for 2 months. I joined awful websites uploading photos of myself to be ripped apart so I… View Post

If you haven’t heard of The Ordinary they are owned by parent company Deciem and have disrupted the beauty industry like no other skincare brand. Their serums retail for around £5.80 making them extremely affordable but not only that, they are extremely effective. The science behind the brand has stunned me, and quite frankly I think a brand like this has been a long time coming. You can read an interview here by Brandon Truaxe,… View Post

 Recently several people I really care about are no longer apart of my life. It’s not easy; relationship breakdowns especially family related can be among the most painful experiences in life. Loss of any kind is tough, but loss like this can sting like none other. I wrote a previous post touching on the subject of “Why” which you can read here. After this was posted it stirred up a few emotions from myself and… View Post

Today marks the last day of Mental Health Awareness week and with last week being Maternal mental health matters I couldn’t not write a post to conclude both weeks. Adding Mental health into my blog I do feel compelled to participate and join in the conversation, which does add a level of pressure, especially creating content based on the topic. Although I am happy to talk about my mental health, as I wholeheartedly agree that… View Post

New Year’s resolutions – rarely have they actually been seen through but I love thinking about them mid-year. I never promise myself come January as I think it adds too much pressure. However a few months later I Take some time to reflect on the past, the good, the bad and the ugly. Positively plan my year ahead, getting excited about what’s to come and thinking about to how to enjoy it to the full.… View Post

Dear Depression, You have been apart of my life for longer than I care to acknowledge. You are my worst enemy pretending to be my best friend. I feel like things are not true especially with the people I love. You tell me I am not good enough, I am not lovable, i will never be good enough. I have tried ways to make sure you are not there, that you are no longer part… View Post

I’m loving these Self-care Sunday instalments! I have learnt a lot about myself & These past few weeks I’ve been working on a digital mood board. WHAT IS A MOODBOARD?  An arrangement of images, materials, pieces of text, etc. intended to evoke or project a particular style or concept. Mood boards have been used by companies for years to convey a message, however, I wanted to make it personal to me. To really inspire me… View Post
