• Am I unloveable?

    Before I start, the answer to myself and to you is no. Continue… I had a chat with my therapist recently and this question came up because it’s something I have truly believed for a long time. Not only am I unloveable, am I unlikeable? Am I annoying? Am I just quite simply the worst human ever?! Everything negative you could think of, I have asked myself the question. After a year or so of dating and the highs and lows of that, that specific question pops into my mind on a regular basis. WHY, doesn’t he like me?! WHY, did he just fuck off and never speak to me…

  • Who is your soul mate?

    Good evening to you all… Well, firstly welcome to my new platform! We’ve moved over, we’ve taken the plunge, we are getting serious here aren’t we. Anyway… In my life I have thought I’ve met my ‘soul mate’ a couple of times, was it my first ever boyfriend who I loved from the age of 14? It wasn’t. Or was it my recent ex boyfriend who I thought I’d spend forever with? It wasn’t. I don’t actually believe your soul mate is necessarily someone you are in love with, despite the idea that this is the case. My soul mate is my best friend. Someone I spend most of my…

  • 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…

  • Effortless Inspiration Books by Dani DiPirro: Review!

    Hi everyone, it’s been a while for which I apologise but if I’m honest I’ve been an absolute mess lately. Ridiculously tired, run down, a mess from start to finish. I’m sorry!  Anyway, a little while ago the lovely people over at Watkins Media  sent me some copies of Dani DiPirro’s (aka, Positivelypresent) new books (as well as a couple of her older ones to complete the set). There are four in the set: Gratitude, Living In The Moment and the two newer books Forgiveness and Compassion. I jumped on board when they got in touch so I could get my hands on these and try to relate them to my own…

  • Positive Tuesdays: The One When I Went To Ireland.

    Hiiiiiii guys, it’s Tuesday it’s time to be positive about the previous week. I’ve had a great one but also a very, very tough one in my little brain. It’s a strange feeling when you’re stuck in your recovery, when you also feel so lonely but you have amazing people around you…you just need those extra ones to show they care. OKAY NO, this is not the name of the game, if I want to be a negative Nelly then I will make a whole new post. Anyway, this week was full of fun! To be fair I missed the previous week because I was in Dublin last week, so…

  • Positive Tuesdays, they’re back!

    Oh my god HI. I’m bringing back Positive Tuesdays, if you were about in my Uni days you’ll know all about these. Have a look here, there’s loads! I enjoyed doing this, let me fill you in on the dealio with these. Every Tuesday I will look back on the week I’ve had and pick out all the good things, it’s a day of positive reflection. A moment to focus on the good and forget any of the bad and document it to look back on when I need to! I loved doing it back when I was struggling at university. It did help, it helped slightly then however I…

  • Physical VS. Mental

    Hiiiiii, So something that has really been bothering me recently is the difference in how mental illnesses are treated in comparison with physical. I personally, feel like I’m just being silly and weak if I need time for myself because everything is getting too much but my Eating Practitioner said to me “would you feel the same if you had a broken leg?” – of course not, I’d be laying on that sofa watching crap day time telly with no guilt whatsoever. I’ve had a few moments recently where I physically cannot face the world, I can only face a few and that’s my family, Ryan and my best friend…

  • Taking control.

    Today I said something out loud that I’ve never really spent the time thinking too much about. On my way home from an appointment with my eating disorder practitioner, after realising that I really AM fully on the road to recovery I realised that I am afraid to be okay. I said to my mum and my brother “I’m scared to not have anything anymore” – it sounds RIDICULOUS. But it was followed by a tonne of tears and a crying headache. It’s the truth though, I feel like I am afraid of being okay because like I also said to them, I don’t know who or what I am…

  • World Mental Health Day 2015

    Hi hi hi, I never post anymore I am a poop head I’m sorry! I just have so much going on (that’s a complete and utter lie, I’m unemployed, I have nothing to do) It’s world mental health day, a day close to my little heart. You know me, I’m very open about my mental health, it’s very important to speak about it and keep it alive! The worlds backs should never be turned on the concept of somebodies mental health, keep talking about it and keep looking after each other – pEACE OUT. I’m not actually done at all, I’ve not even begun! Where is my mental health at…

  • Update!

    Hi hi hi, Once again I’ve been so disgustingly unmotivated to write anything on this blog that I’ve abandoned it 5eva. A lot has happened since I left university and when I say left I mean permanently which leaves me thinking about the future… Okay, so here I am a University drop out. Where is my band to start singing around me like on Grease when the chick is a beauty school drop out? Or because I went to a painfully average London university do I not get the privilege?! All year I spent my time wondering if being at university was the right thing for me, I had THE…
