    One Night In London With Rupi Kaur

    Hi guys! If you haven’t realised already, I’m a big poetry fan. I’m all for the Insta Poetry movement and love how poetry has modernised with time. There are many poets like this out there that I adore, one of my absolute favourites being Rupi Kaur. I love her work for many reasons – mainly because she is a beautiful writer and her work is extremely relatable. She’s one of those women you wish you were friends with, and to be honest, I feel like I know her. Sadly, I don’t, but I was lucky enough to see her perform recently, which I will go onto talk about now. She’s…

    5 Steps After Ghosting

    U ok hun? Being ghosted kinda sucks. Well actually, it sucks big time. If you’ve been freshly ghosted and aren’t sure what to do next, I decided to put together some steps for you to take. Now I’m no expert, it took me many years and embarrassing moments to decide this was the better route. So to save yourself any extra trauma, give them a read. Chill out Right, don’t panic until you’re a few days in, because I know I tend to panic after about six hours. This first panic has probably come from other bad relationships and doesn’t necessarily reflect on him, so chill out. He honestly could…

    Slimming World Update

    Hey guys! Back in January I posted about joining Slimming World, so I thought I would give you all a quick update on how it’s going. I am about 7 weeks in now and feeling great. I am very close to losing a stone which I think is crazyyyy. So glad I made the decision to start now, or I’d still be where I was, complaining about needing to make changes. I have to say, I haven’t felt overly deprived or gone really off the rails since starting. I’ve had a few days away, the odd meal out and the occasional going over my syns, but nothing that has made…

    Surviving Valentine’s Day As The Single Friend

    Ah, Valentine’s Day. The occasion I always forget about until it starts to flood me from mid-January onwards. It’s a strange one, it brings out immense bitterness in some, loaded wallets in others, and well then there’s the rest of us who just kinda glide through it as we normally would. When you’re the single friend, it can be a lonely time. You try your best to encourage ‘Galentines,’ but it always ends up being some cool bonding time with your dog because even your mum and sister have other plans. Honestly, how RUDE. So, fellow singletons, want some tips on how to make it through the big day? Keep…

    I Joined Slimming World!

    Ah, a fresh year and another year of procrastination. However, this year I was determined not to let my weight be another thing that gets put off. My weight has risen in the past two years, I have gone from a comfy size 10 to a size 14. There are numerous reasons for this, the main one being I bloody love junk food! When it comes to takeaways and midnight snacks, I’m your girl. Also, I tend to eat when I’m feeling down and I think I was lacking in the nutrients that were needed to help my mood. Overall, I needed a complete diet overhaul, not just for weight…

    The Digital Detox

    During December I decided to stop using social media for a while. This was a big step for me because I LOVE social media. Adore it. However, I knew it had to be done. There were a number of reasons for this, so I wanted to put them into a blog post incase any of you are thinking of doing the same. I know how funny this sounds, the girl taking the social media break is blogging about it! We all know I’m a writer though, and I feel this is a really important topic to touch on as I have this voice on my platform. Maybe it will help…

    All The Jingle Ladies

    I have woken up on yet another Saturday morning with another cheap wine headache and probably another back fat roll due to excessive cheese consumption. 2019 resolution: Cheese only to be consumed as a fancy starter when on proper dates with sophisticated men, or when watching Love Actually alone for the 45th time. I’m not too fussy to be honest. This thought about my life came to me with many others, sometime after 2am on a Christmas night out in a local chipper. Somewhere between the highly intoxicated man attempting to chat me up and the young couple borderline getting it on in front of me, two things hit me –…

    Party Season On A Budget

    Hey guys! My favourite time of year has finally come around. I’m a January baby so of course I adore winter! Anyway, one of my favourite things about Christmas is the glitz and glamour. It is the season of sparkle and I love immersing myself in that. However, I am well aware that social media can make perfection and never-ending bank accounts seem like the norm, but in reality, many of us can’t afford to be buying a new wardrobe every week, myself included! So if you’re anything like me and can always be found snooping around the reduced rails in Penneys, I wanted to share my tips for adding…
