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 […]Read More Faerie core
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, […]Read More So good it’s noughty.
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 […]Read More No strings attached.
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 […]Read More Five years today.
Next up in the joyous dressing spotlight series is Gabrielle Greenall. When I first saw one of her posts, I actually felt a little intimidated.

It was obviously more about my insecurity than anything she had done, but […]Read More Joyous dressing spotlight – Gabrielle Greenall

So back in April I decided to try a natural deodorant, and wrote about it here. If you didn’t read it, I was basically covering off that I had wanted to try a natural deodorant for some time but was nervous about this as I am naturally a sweaty (yep you heard me) and anxious […]Read More Salt of the Earth
Just for fun I decided to count how many pins I had to take out of my hair before bed after my wedding hair trial the other day. Then I thought it’d be interesting to see how it looked every ten pins so I took pictures. Here’s before I started, holding up pretty well! Then […]Read More The undoing.
Ok so my previous post was pretty doom and gloom, but that’s how I’ve been feeling and that’s ok. This morning I was dreading my appointment to try some hairstyles for the wedding but silly old me, I’ve never left my hairdressers anything but happy. We had a good natter, looked at some pictures for […]Read More Bridal hair trial today.
Next up in the joyous dressing spotlight series is Ruby Red Vintage! This account was one I saw every now and then in my.. intro? to joyous dressing. At the time I was feeling a little overwhelmed with things so I’d stopped following people for a bit. It didn’t take long for me to think […]Read More Joyous dressing spotlight – Ruby Red Vintage
I’m not sure if I’ve really mentioned this other than in my PTSD specific posts, but I have been signed off work since the end of January/beginning of Feb. I’m a little hazy on the specific date but it was around that time. I’d been struggling mentally for a while, and though I was already […]Read More Return to work

You know when you have one of those friends […]Read More Congratulations to Jessontheplussize!
