Adult friendships and finding your tribe.

I’ve spoken previously about friendships, introversion¬†and about how I sometimes struggle with finding the confidence to approach people and start friendships. The post in question I wrote back in 2016 when I was really struggling with not feeling like I belonged. Fast forward two years and I’m in a much better much happier place. So what’s changed? I think overall I’ve just become happier in myself. I’ve struggled over the past few years with issues with, self-confidence and generally not feeling comfortable with my body. This can have a huge effect on lots of different things. In the past, I’ve…

Embracing Colour and How I Found My Personal Style.

I am here today to talk about personal style. Now, this is something I’ve struggled with a lot over recent years – I feel this has mostly been down to some issues I’ve had regarding weight gain. But I also think spending a large amount of time on social media doesn’t help, you’re constantly bombarded with images of incredibly stylish bloggers who look incredible meanwhile, you’re sat on your sofa at 11.30 on a Friday morning with unwashed hair, wearing Pokemon pyjamas that you probably should have ironed.

GOODBYE 2017: THE YEAR AHEAD

FINDING THE BALANCE: HOW I’VE STRUGGLED WITH A NEW ROUTINE

Hey, it’s me again. Firstly I must apologise for how quiet I’ve been on here the past few weeks. So much for a big productive blog launch eh? I’ve been a little absence of late, both on here and over on my social media. To be honest I’ve really been struggling with finding the balance.The fact winter is well and truly here hasn’t helped much with that either. It’s dark by 4.30pm, its grey and wet outside and after a day at work all I want to do is curl up under a blanket with a cup of tea. For…
