• Struggling During a Pandemic

    Now that’s a title I don’t think you’d ever expect to write in your life. A fucking PANDEMIC?! It’s been months and months and it still seems unreal. At the start of it all my mental health really wasn’t too bad, really I was in the best place I’d been for a long time. I wasn’t too deep in my health anxiety, my body confidence was high and I was happy. I haven’t been too scared by COVID this entire time, which is surprising considering my anxiety is surrounded by health. I just felt like it gives you more of a reason to try and live your life to the…

  • Dating Do’s and Don’ts

    I have terrible taste. That is not the way you want to start a post is it? But I am not here to lie to you, from my history of dating and the stories which have come from the dating I have concluded that my taste is quite frankly, a disgrace. I’m being harsh, it’s not THAT bad and if I’ve ever dated you and you’re reading this, hello, welcome and make yourself at home. Now I’m no dating expert, quite the opposite, I’d say that I am quite the novice so should you listen to me? Probably not, I have failed in getting anywhere in the dating world so…

  • The Tinder Ghost

    Hello everyone, old and new… It’s been a very long time since I last wrote on what has always been my beloved blog. The last time I was here was October last year, I’d just moved into my new flat and I was ready for a totally fresh start. However, in that time I’d lost any creative energy I’d ever had and my blog took the biggest back seat it had ever taken, it was at the back of a very long bus. The bus being my life. In the last year I’ve just been trying to figure out life as a 24/25 year old woman. What do I need…

  • Look who’s back…again

    Hello you, it’s been a while. It’s been too long, you’re like an old friend I keep meaning to meet up with but seem to avoid at all costs, my bad. I would love to say that my absence was for good reason, like I was travelling the world or doing amazing things with my life and ruling the universe. Fact of the matter is, I have just had a fucking funny year and haven’t felt like writing at all. Here I am again though, at a time when my mental health has taken a dip and I turn back to writing. I’ve spent the last few evenings just putting…

  • 2018 Travels – BLOGMAS DAY 12

    Good day everyone, happy 12th day of Blogmas!  This year has been lovely for my little travels. Let’s have a little recap shall we… COPENHAGEN & LOMMA; SWEDEN – FEBRUARY I whisked Dan away like the smashing girlfriend I am to Copenhagen and to visit our friends in Sweden for a week. It was delightful. We did typical touristy things in Copenhagen – Tivoli Gardens, we saw Nyhavn which was stunning and strolled around the little streets. It was freezing cold and snowed which just made me so happy. It was the perfect way to celebrate Dans birthday and start the year off.  Jönköping; SWEDEN – MAY  So off I popped to…

  • What am I grateful for? – BLOGMAS DAY 11

    Hey everyone!  I always speak about how important gratitude is to me and especially at this time of year, you reflect on what has happened and how you’ve managed to get through things. For that, I show gratitude.  In life I am grateful for many things, here are just a few:  FAMILY  In what has been a hard year for my family, they’ve still all been there at the hardest time and as a family we have managed to get through everything together. Love has grown and bad times are replaced with this love and laughs. In the worst of times we build each other up and for that I am forever…

  • What is Success & Am I Successful?

    Before I go on, I AM BACK HIIIIIIIIYAAAAAA. I haven’t posted on my blog in ages, I’ve been busy on YouTube and you know, I’ve never quite felt the love for it like I have for my blog. I love writing and I miss writing, talking to a camera? Perhaps not for me. I’ve got a whole load of posts planned for Blogmas, yeah that’s right, Shannon is doing Blogmas. I did it back in 2014 (I think!) and loved it. So there is no better way to throw myself back in than back to back blog posts, am I right ladies?! I had some thoughts on my way to…

  • Take Your Own Advice…

    Hey everyone, As you well know I enjoy doing a blog post when times are very tough – it helps me. Right now I’m having a fucking tough day. Heres the thing I can talk the talk but I can’t walk the walk, I can do blog posts upon blog posts talking about how to try and get through bad spells of mental health but here I am, still struggling daily. Some days are better, some really are not and today is one of those days. I’ll be honest I have spent the day panicking, internally and externally. I have wound my mum up all day and annoyed myself. I…

  • “Love” with Anxiety.

    Hellooooo everyone another mental health post, oh me. I’m surrounded by love and support there’s absolutely no denying that. I have more friends than I could ever dream of, I’ve always been lucky to find friends in different places. I have my life long friends, my work friends, my friends from uni, my online friends that I’ve met through bands and my international friends (Erin, that’s you). I have so much love to shower me in.I have a big loving family and a bloody lovely boyfriend. I love to love.The hardest thing with suffering from anxiety and depression is to know that you’re upsetting those who love you so much and…

  • My Tattoos

    Hey everyone!  I did a little poll on Twitter to see what post you’d like to see next and you wanted a post on my tattoos. I have a few and actually rediscovered a post I did back in 2014 on my first two little tattoos – I totally forgot I did that post! Well since then I’ve had five new tattoos and I thought I’d talk through them and why I got them and why I love them all individually so much, let’s go…  Watercolour Heart So, this is my little water colour heart on my inner right arm. I actually got this tattoo with my mum, we got a…
