I’m Getting Help

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…

Closing That Door

Closing That Door

The other day I had a dream. I was sat in the refectory and my sister came and sat down next to me. I woke up before we could talk but ever since I have had this niggling feeling in the back of my mind. If you know me or if you have been reading my blog for a while you will know a relationship with my sister is something that doesn’t exist. Am I sad about this? Usually, I…

These items have been gifted but all opinions are my own and I would only ever share products I…

Mini Haul From Paperchase

Mini Haul From Paperchase

I did it, I popped my Paperchase cherry! For years I would wander around the concession stand in House of Fraser in Cheltenham looking at all of the beautiful pens and greetings cards. What I Bought I have recently been on the hunt for a beautiful leather wrap around journal! They just look stunning and I have always wanted to own one! I found this absolutely stunning one for just £14 in their sale! It is kept shut by sliding…

My University Fears

My University Fears

So I’m not sure if I have told you this yet but I’m going to uni in September! Ok, I’m just kidding I know I have told you a million times over but it is, unfortunately, something you will have to continue reading!

Because of that, I thought I would share these fears…

My 2018 Savings Plan

My 2018 Savings Plan

In February I found out I got into uni! For most this would be a time to celebrate, but for me, it was a time to start stressing over whether I could actually afford it! After a few sleepless nights, I finally broke down to my best friend and let it all out. The first thing he said was ‘I told you to start saving months ago’.  He did and he was right I should have been saving months ago!…
