Today is the last day of my honeymoon, and as I said previously I wanted to do my Hopewalk here this year.

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.
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.Read More Running out of steam.

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.
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. My mind was like how does this person belong to the same group of people as me?

I spent most of my day looking at online abuse and racism and reporting as much as possible. I feel angry, sad and disappointed in my fellow human beings that this shit is tolerated, let alone gotten away with over something they want to call the beautiful game?! There is a screenshot of a point […]Read More Being human right now is exhausting.
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.
