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 […]Read More Makeup trial.
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.
When you’re young you have such firm ideas of how life should go. What age makes you a grown up, what it is that grown ups do.. houses, kids, marriages, jobs. I was so convinced that by my mid 20’s I would be a mother. All my life I’ve been great with kids, the go […]Read More Am I lost?
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.

Happy Bank Holiday Monday to you all, or just Monday if it’s not a bank holiday for you, from me and the spot on my chin that won’t go away!

I wanted to go out somewhere nice with the dog, somewhere we would have to drive to so we could both be in nature and have fun exploring. The weather is certainly good for it, though me being me I’d have to lather on the factor 50 before we left. I woke up to my […]Read More Not the Sunday I was expecting.
So, I’ve had a shower for the first time since Sunday. Is that gross? Sure. Did I smell? Absolutely. Does knowing that change anything? No, depression doesn’t care, and you pretty much just feel worse cause you know you’re being gross. I brushed my teeth, put some undies and a face mask on (my skin […]Read More Showering is hard these days.
I started using deodorants, body sprays and anti-perspirant’s in my teens. It was fairly normal for everyone at school to be walking through a cloud of body spray/perfumes in the corridors or anti-perspirants in the changing tooms. We were all so coated in this super sweet perfumed nonsense that I honestly wouldn’t have been able […]Read More Thinking of making the switch to natural deodorant?
