I am a big believer that every emotion has its purpose. To me, fear is our body’s way of telling us, “hey this is new territory, let’s take a moment and evaluate the situation.” Is this a showstopper for you or a motiver?
As a fanatic reader I have learnt the importance of reading different styles of genres. This is something I thought I would never have done ten years ago. Before I opened my mind to all types of literature, there was a time when I would only read horror/thriller novels. If you […]

This year has been a turmoil year in terms of Politics. Now, I don’t want to get all political on you. However, there are many people that will be disappointed and worried by the general election results. I want to reflect on how we can all do something to […]
New Year’s Resolutions: Are they effective? Absolutely. Maybe not? It really all depends on you and your intentions in setting them.
When you have an education the skys the limit, in terms of job opportunity, and confidence. Life’s all about confidence, without which, makes it hard to even get started in the first place. Whether you’re a college student, or a graduate student, or trying to get your PhD, you’ll go […]
It’s November. The rents been taken out. The overdraft has been well and truly broken into, so Dominos Fridays are no longer a thing. What a sad, sad sentence. I will not however be deprived of my cheesy pizza and, as if I wasn’t procrastinating enough already, I decided there […]
A lovely selection of beauty products can help us to feel pampered and rejuvenated, but when you practically need a different product for every body part, the cost can really add up. But did you know that you can make a variety of products cheaply and simply at home? With […]
I used to think that my life was pretty great – nothing was going wrong, I had a good job, great friends, and no major stressors. The only problem was that I was just letting time slip by me without being proactive, or intentional, about what I was doing with my life. I was living a life but I was not living my best life. This revelation was a life-altering for me.
Christmas is on the way. The tell tale sign for this is the Coca Cola advert being on TV. This is by far my favourite time of the year. I love getting the home looking festive and we do lots of advent activities with our children to make the season […]
I’ve got countless notebooks where i’ve written down here and there things for my ‘bucket list’ but, most of my list is kept mentally in my head. I’ve been lucky enough to already have ticked off parts of my list and, on my trip to Paris I got to tick […]

We all know that, whilst social media has many benefits, sometimes it’s not great for our mental health. Highly stylised imagery, photoshopped faces and bodies, designer bling and exotic locations – they’re not necessarily things that make us feel good as we run for the bus in the pouring rain […]
So, you’ve just moved to Plymouth to start University, you’ve all settled into halls, had your induction and now it’s time to get stuck into life in Britain’s Ocean City.
Hey guys, December is upon us and soon we’ll all be writing our New Years Resolutions! I thought i’d share with you an old post from back in February 2019 documenting my attempt to stick to a new years resolution. Spoiler alert: i didn’t stick to it but, in the […]
Recently, I’ve been starting to think that maybe we’ve got the meaning of the Christmas season wrong. What if, it’s not about the extravagant gifts we buy or the elaborate feasts we prepare? But instead, what if it’s about simply being present? What if we gave our presence for Christmas […]
October marks a whole year since I started my current job. That’s genuinely insane. Who knew a job that started as an admin role would make me realise I want to write for a living? Of course I’d still pick something that’s basically unattainable! Typical me. However, this time I […]

In June 2016, I reluctantly made the decision to start taking medication for my OCD. I’ve openly discussed it with my mental health related posts, but I haven’t actually talked about the reasons why I left it for so long. For today’s post, I’m going to talk a little more […]
