Makeup trial.

I had my makeup trial this week. I was half excited half dreading it because I’m not a big makeup person, and I didn’t want to be full glam and bronzed up like a lot of the pictures I see online as it’s just not me. But on the other hand I didn’t know what […]

Running out of steam.

I think it’s important both mentally and physically for me to remember to take my time, and rest when my body needs it, especially after going through so much the last year or so or I’ll only end up hurting myself again.

Boogeyman

You ever sit down to eat your dinner and think, ooh I could go for a good horror movie right about now? I do, alot! I was having a look on Netflix and I saw Boogeyman, something I’d watched many a time when I was a little younger. It was released in 2005, which makes […]

Charlie Says Hello

So last year I started my blog because I thought it would be a good outlet for me, I’ve always loved writing and was struggling with my mental health and lockdown like a lot of people. I set up new social media accounts for it, and I’ve been enjoying the honesty, the sharing and making […]

So happy I didn’t succeed.

Eighteen months ago I tried to overdose on sleeping pills and antidepressants so that everything would stop. Six months ago I broke down. I got diagnosed with PTSD and opened up about my trauma for the first time. I’m not going to say life is sunshine and rainbows now because it isn’t.. well sometimes it […]

Faerie core

I’ve talked about joyous dressing alot on here, I am a big fan, though I am always a little nervous about joining in with some of the challenges. I love to see the outfits and the stories and the inspiration people come up with, and always promise myself that next time I’ll really go for […]

Celebration or confrontation..

It was my sisters 30th birthday, she went away for a week but had a big old gathering when she returned to celebrate with our very large extended family. I was really sad that I missed her actual birthday the day before, but was struggling with some pains and wasn’t sure I could make it. […]

Random memory dump.

When I was in primary school (which if you’re not in the UK is where kids age 4-11 go before secondary school), I remember there was a cigarette stub found in the girls toilets. I think we were all about 9 or 10 at the time, so it was considered equal parts cool and scary.. […]

So good it’s noughty.

So over the years I have always had trouble with my scalp. It’s very sensitive, it scabs up and it gets sore and itchy (and bleeds, I know.. gross right).. dandruff has been a pretty constant thing in my adult life. I was always pretty embarrased about it but no matter what products I used, […]

No strings attached.

So I’m home alone while my partner is gone for the week, dog sitting for his parents. I had just reheated some pasta for my dinner and wanted to put something on that wasn’t going to need a big emotional investment from me, so I went to comedies on Prime and ended up selecting No […]

Five years today.

Charlie came to live with us five years ago today! He was around nine months old, a friend of my uncle had gotten him for his family but long story short they couldn’t keep him. That first week was terrifying, he cried, I cried, wondered if I’d taken on too much. But as hard as […]
