Knackered, but I have biscuits.

I AM SO TIRED TODAY GUYS. You may have noticed I took a few days off there- I didn’t post anything from Tuesday until today, thus breaking the pretty consistent flow of writing I had going. There are a couple of reasons; firstly, I was away in Edinburgh last weekend (which I’ll be blogging about…

BOOK REVIEW: Everyday Sexism, by Laura Bates

Feminist. It’s become such a “bad” word, hasn’t it? You’re either praised and lifted up above all others for being liberal and awesome, or you’re branded a bra-burning nutter who ‘should get back in the kitchen lol’. There’s no middle ground, and among most people where I live, it’s seen as a dangerous, rebellious thing….

beauté- Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick Review

Aside from books, lipstick is my downfall. I am a sucker for bright colours and pretty packaging. My Estée Lauder lipstick will forever and always be my all-time favourite, but I’m always on the lookout for a new lippies to add to my ever-expanding collection*. (*More like shrine at this stage, but we’ll move on.)…

beauté: Coconut Oil as Make Up Remover-Worth The Hype?!

Halllllloooooooo lovely lads and lassies! Hope this post finds you well. Is it just me, or did the Internet World go a little bit CRAZY for coconut oil last year? All of a sudden, you were scum if you weren’t cooking with coconut oil; you were seriously uncool if you didn’t bake with coconut oil,…

Unwinding: How I Relax and Get Ready for Sleep!

Hellllooooooooo lovely humans! I hope you’re all having a great week so far! I feel like at the grand old age of 22, my catchphrase is “I’m tired”. Or maybe, there aren’t even words, just an elongated YAAAAAAAwwwwwwn. I’m always taking on too much work, or worrying about something to the point where I can’t…

5 Things Which Helped Me Through My OCD

OCD is poopy*. (*world’s biggest understatement right there) While I don’t know exactly how long I’ve *had* OCD, I do know that it was around this time last year, when things started getting bad. It became this big, unbearable, messy, anxiety-inducing disaster, just in time for my final year at uni. Yay! I think one…

BOOK REVIEW: Present Over Perfect, by Shauna Niequist

BOOK 35/40 Hello dearest readers! I hope you’re all keeping well and feeling as lovely as ever. So I am bringing you yet another book review- this week, I finished reading Shauna Niequist’s Present Over Perfect. I had heard rave reviews about this book- I’d seen some of the Robertson family Instagramming it, I’d seen other…

Sunflowers: A Bad OCD Day

Yesterday was crap. For the first time in a looooooong time, my OCD felt out of control, and I just couldn’t get it “settled” again. Every technique I’d learned to use in CBT, every distraction, was tossed out the window in a jiffy, and I was stuck in a delayed train, thinking, I can’t do…
