The dangers of misinformation!

So if you haven’t guessed it by now, I’m an Endometriosis sufferer. (Of course you’ve guessed it, I talk about it in like, every post!). Recently theres been so many posts in the media about Endometriosis (which is great of course!) but a few days ago there was one entitled something along the lines of “Woman nearly DIES from Endometriosis”. I’ll be honest, the articles I saw were posted on the online versions of numerous rags such as The Sun and The Mirror. Not exactly the most believable papers in the first place. I also recently saw an article that was entitled “Period cramps are as painful as a heart attack” – (to be honest, there is some truth to this, but the articles is just written in the most RIDICULOUS way!).


Now I’m not going to lie, I have had those insane, severely painful cramps where you think its the end of your life and you hear the woosh of Satan carriage as he arrives to pull you down to the fiery depths where you have to live out eternity in your own Read More »


Saving for a house!

So for a while, Jack and I have been trying to save for a house. We’ve seen 2 different mortgage advisers, we’ve opened our own Help To Buy ISAs and we’ve researched every possible Government Scheme for first time buyers available. We’ve saved and saved and finally feel like we could be getting somewhere! However, there are downsides to all the saving. Saving £200 into a Help to Buy ISA each month is great, and it realistically sets a precedent for the future of my saving habits, even though it has obviously had a big impact on how we live our lives!

Life structure = bubble

So I feel recently like my structure (physical, metal and social) is getting weaker. There is something about the burst and I’m not sure what. I can’t work out if I’m putting too much pressure on myself or if I’m just being weak. Sometimes life just gets to you, you know?

Autumn is near…

So it’s September, and it seems summer has been and gone. Soon it’ll be October and my personal favourite time of the year. Yes, it’s my birthday, but it’s also an amazing time of year where the leaves change colour, soup for every meal becomes acceptable and I get to wear giant jumpers again. Autumn is a beautiful time of year and I love everything about it.

Mermaid making!

Hey mer-friends,

So I know I’ve been a bit distant recently (well, these past few months!) but I felt that I needed to take some space and sort myself out as it were. To cut a long story short, since starting my menopausal treatment, I have been all over the place. The positive though is that I’m now on a new HRT and I’m feeling positive, well and a little bit more ‘with it’! But lets not concentrate on that, I’ll be publishing a whole post about my experiences soon, once I know how to put it all into words…

What I do want to talk about though, is MAKING!

Mental Health and the Menopause

So I’m 27. I’ve got a great boyfriend. I’ve got a cat. I’ve got a great job. But..I’ve got Endometriosis. I’ve got anxiety. I’ve got depression.

And I’m going through the menopause.

Yes, you read that right. I’m going through the menopause. Induced, not natural. Its temporary, but man is it tough. I never expected this to happen but after 2 years of no Read More »


What I’ve learnt in the last 6 years…

So two weeks ago, it was our anniversary. Thats right, Jack and I have been together for a full 6 years. Time flies right? Well now, I don’t know if I could imagine life without him. All his funny little quirks, the way he accepts mine, the way he looks after me when I’m sick and the way he breathes so weird when he sleeps (it annoys the hell out of me but when he’s not there I miss it – what can you do?).


So I started to notice articles recently which discuss and list reasons why their relationship or marriage has been successful. Most of them list the same or similar things. Respect, loving each other, accepting each other – they were the main themes that each article ran Read More »


Uncertain times call for uncertain measures…

Those of you who know me in real life know that I can be pretty wild. I know I’m considered an extrovert, like a drink or two, and have always been one of the last ones standing on a night out. I pretty much lived by ‘Go Hard or Go Home’. That is, until recently.

As some of you may know, I used to work in a restaurant. Scratch that, I used to live, breath and work a restaurant. I was there at least 5 days a week for a minimum of 52 hours a week, and said restaurant was 45 mins away from Cheltenham. On top of that I would go clubbing at least once a week (normally twice), see my friends at the pub at least once a Read More »


2017 is the year of…what?

So 2017 has started, and what’s happened so far..? Well, luckily, there hasn’t been any major celebrity deaths (something I’m sure 2016 will be remembered for, for a very long time). Trump has be inaugurated to The White House, and Obama and Michelle are out *sobs heavily*. Woman’s March took place on Saturday (the day after Trump’s inauguration). Theresa May has taken a trade gamble with the EU and the single market. And its only the 23rd of the month.


In my reality, things are a little less imposing, but none the less, they’ve happened. Black Milk are now charging postage, which will mean customs will be a definite. Jack has gone Read More »


How to do Christmas when you’re a total Scrooge, like me!

So, if you’re anything like me, Halloween is a lot more fun than Christmas. I’ll admit it, there are aspects of Christmas I can’t stand. Aspects I full on loath. And aspects I just have a minor dislike for. Altogether, Christmas is rubbish. Yes the drinking is really fun, the eating too, and some of the socializing is good (some of it mandatory), but other than that, I just don’t get the Christmas hype. So I thought I’d do a how to for those who have a similar out look on the festivities, and how you can make the holiday more bearable for you, and yourself more bearable for those around you!
