Community lead Campaigns will always have my support. Especially when a movement is creating awareness around Diversity, when John the founder of #ILiveItIblogIt and creator of Johns road to volunteering asked me to be apart of it I jumped at the opportunity. The message behind the campaign is something I’ve been keen to acknowledge.  Diversity or lack of within the Blogosphere. Worldometers provides a “real-time” count of the number of blog posts written each day.… View Post

I’ve been blogging about Mental health for seven months which wasn’t my original plan when I created my blog.

Behind the blog One late afternoon in November of 2016, I purchased some web hosting space, installed the default template in WordPress, opened up the domain name registrar page….and waited for inspiration to strike. I honestly couldn’t think of a bloody name! I scoured the internet for inspiration….Nothing! After a couple of months using a not great option, The Blossom Edit was found. check out here why I started my blog who I am and what… View Post

If you’ve been here from the beginning (which honestly, wasn’t too long ago) when I created this blog you will see I’ve deterred from my original “niche” It certainly isn’t intentional as raising awareness for Periventricular leukomalacia until everybody understands is still my ultimate goal, it’s just some days are easier spreading that message than others. Somedays The words flow and the sentences form other days…Nothing! I can’t think of many other experiences where you… 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

Hi, I’m Nicole. Today I turn 26 years old. Happy Birthday to me! The most important people in my life know me as Mama. I’ve been called Superhero, brave and plenty other kind words but in reality, I’m just a girl who was thrown a curve ball in life who made a decision to help others. It didn’t come straight away and I struggled with our new life, and you know what that’s ok! My… View Post

There’s no denying blogging has blown up BIG time over the past couple of years. I created my blog just 6 months ago, however, I’ve been following blogs and reading blogs for a lot longer. I wanted to write this post for inspiration but also a shout out to the incredible people behind these blogs. I first discovered the majority of bloggers on YouTube when I myself tried ( & failed) at making beauty related… 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

Soon you will turn 26 and the life you are currently living is far from the life you had envisioned. Which has made me ponder what I wish I had known when I was sixteen. The feelings of fear, Self-conscious, Insecurity and confusion are a far cry from your teenage self. Hey Nicole, Wow, these last 10 years have been turbulent. Unforuntantly you are in for a rocky road please do not be afraid, you will… View Post
