In case you are completely unaware of what the Pin Party Club is here is a little bit of an overview! Pin Party Club is a monthly subscription box by the fabulous Anita at Sugar and Sloth. Sugar and Sloth create…

I’m Getting Help

I’m Getting Help

It feels like it was only yesterday since I walked into the reception at uni on the verge of tears. It was the day of my first personal tutor meeting and I had told myself I wouldn’t cry. I wouldn’t unload everything on my personal tutor. All it took was for him to ask if I was ok and quite frankly I lost it. The night before I had had the meltdown to end all meltdowns and I finally opened…

Alcohol and my Mental Health

Alcohol and my Mental Health

These two are not best buddies. In fact, it is safe to say they are the most uncomfortable pairing known to man. Recently every time I have drunk I have either had a full-blown panic attack or a not so nice wobble. Number one this is really not fair on the people I am with but secondly, these episodes are incredibly exhausting and take me a good few days to recover from. A Decision Because of all of this I…

How I Learnt to Love Myself

How I Learnt to Love Myself

For as long as I can remember I haven’t been confident in the way I look. I never thought I looked good in what I wore and quite simply I just felt awkward. As a child, I dressed in what looked like boys clothes; board shorts and garish t-shirts. As I grew up my fashion sense developed into baggy hoodies and skinny jeans. As the hoodies got baggier my weight increased and then I quite simply hid. I hid behind…

Be Your Inner Wolf

You might remember that a month or so ago I launched a t-shirt campaign using mercht that quite simply was not a success. I myself didn’t even bother ordering something! But the good news is that I have relaunched it as such and this time I am determined for it to be a success. This time around I have created a range of five sweatshirts with a slightly different design. I listened to my friends and taken their comments on board. instead of…

Hello, my lovelies!! Now I know I only posted a blog yesterday but this is gonna be a regular thing! I’m getting on this blogging stuff!! So let’s get down to it.

Thank You For Giving Me a Kick Up the Butt

Thank You For Giving Me a Kick Up the Butt

I wrote this a little while ago. I was in a pretty bad place too scared to even leave the house. The reason I didn’t post it originally is because I didn’t quite understand why I had written it. It was one of those moments where the words just appeared on the screen, I wasn’t even aware that I was typing. I shared these words with a close friend of mine and he made me realise that there are so…

Happiness

Happiness

Looking back at my childhood the most poignant of memories are from when I was most upset and angry. I wouldn’t consider myself to be a happy person. But what is happiness? I can’t say I have ever felt immense happiness nor can I really remember a time whereby something made me particularly happy. Is that a bad thing or does it maybe shown that I haven’t been making the right decisions in life? I thought having a stable job…
