Where are you going?

So today I feel I need to focus on a feeling I have more than semi regularly; the feeling that I don’t know where I’m going in my life! Well realistically, I’m just going forward, we all are. But sometimes it does feel like you’re stuck too much in aΒ rut, or are going completely off course. This can be a difficult feeling to handle, especially when you’re nearing a deadline, or are feeling building pressure from outside sources, but it is manageable.

I said ‘no!’…

So today I want to talk about that awful situation…the one where you have to say ‘no’ to someone you really don’t want to let down. Unfortunately, sometimes we have to stand up for ourselves and let down someone that might be relying on you. Whether you let them down for selfish reasons, or for unavoidable reasons, it really does suck either way.Read More »

How to survive your mid to late twenties…

14322403_10154342965080272_130664886873679287_n

Ok so now I’ve turned 27, I need to stop believing I’m just ‘mid-twenties’, but in fact, approaching my late twenties *hides under a blanket*. When I was 18, all shiny and new in the world of ‘real life’, I seriously thought that I would have myself sorted by now. I’d know where I was going, what I was doing, I’d be married or at least engaged, maybe even planing children. I’d have travelled the world, experienced all kinds of wild and wonderful things. I’d be able to poach an egg. WELL 18-year-old me, how wrong you were… Read More »

Sunday’s outfit

What’s up guys?

So here it is, my first outfit of the day (OOTD) post. Bare (bear?) with me, there’s a first time for everything! No I’m not going to pretend I’m super fashionable, and know all there is to know about style, who the newest model is or the importance of contouring, but I like to think I know what suits me personally. So I plan on bringing you some bits and bobs from the high street, as well as online bargains and of course, how I style my Black Milk. So…without further ado…Read More »

Standard Issue Magazine

 

This evening I went along to an event at the Cheltenham Comedy Festival. It was hosted by Sarah Millican, along with a panel of other female comedians (or just comedians – ya know, i’m all for equal rights!) along with the editor of Standard Issue Magazine, Mickey Noonan.

Now I’d never heard of Standard Issue Magazine before tonight. In fact my mum just got us tickets because we both love Sarah Millican. But boy, did I love the show!Read More »

Burkini Life

 

Ok so the French police are currently in the news for asking a woman to remove her ‘Burkini’. If you are not in the know, a Burkini (or Burquini) is essentially swimwear designed for Islamic women to go to the beach in, feel comfortable and protect their modesty, if they so wish. In fact, plenty of non-Islamic women have purchased them – Nigella Lawson being one of many. Like, its literally a water proof Burka but withΒ a Hijab scarf type thing instead of the completely covered face. To wear on the beach. Or at the pool. That is it.Read More »
