• Health Anxiety Explained

    For many years I’ve written about health anxiety, my experiences and how it makes me feel. A lot of the time people are described as hypochondriacs when they worry about their health, I feel like this is an ‘old term’ for it, because doctors don’t diagnose people with hypochondria but for the sake of this post let’s get some definitions under our belts shall we; From the NHS website: “Health anxiety (sometimes called hypochondria) is when you spend so much time worrying you’re ill, or about getting ill, that it starts to take over your life.” All of this is that I speak about is from my own experience but…

  • 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…

  • BIG FAT SIGH.

    I’m totally sighing at life right now. I’ve been absolutely fine for the past few weeks, I returned to London and my mind went back on itself and bummed me out. You see, when I was little my dream was to live in London and work at a magazine – I’m now 19 and a half and have no idea really what I want anymore and it’s infuriating. It’s annoying not knowing whether to take the plunge and drop out of university tomorrow or stick with it and stay being miserable. I’m 19, of course I’m going to change my mind about my life plan but it’s a shame because…

  • One Woman Walk Across London.

    Helloooo! So last week I had a day off and wanted some time for myself, as you know I love autumn and I thought I might as well embrace it and go on a long walk. I walked all the way from my halls to Westminster, along the South Bank and Westminster Bridge and everything…I can’t say that was the most fun I’ve ever had as I was dodging tourists left, right and centre. I can now understand a typical Londoners anger at the everyday tourist, it is quite infuriating but we’ve all done it and I’m a small person so I could swiftly dodge being in the background of…

  • Autumn Has My Heart.

    Hiiii! October is well underway, in recent years it has become one of my favourite months of the year. The last few months of every year are always the best in my eyes, I just love the crisp mornings, the events and all that comes with them. I could happily live in autumn/winter all year round, screw summer give me hoodies or give me death (this was an extreme over exaggeration, don’t give me death at all just give me jumpers and artificial warmth from fires and stuff). Here are a few things I absolutely love about autumn… 1. The trees and all the leaves… IT’S JUST BEAUTIFUL, LOOK AT…

  • Positive Tuesdays: Week Seven.

    Hello! Yep, I missed another week didn’t I so let’s start a fresh, let’s not focus on the weeks I missed. This is now week 7 okay, but it’s probably 7 and 8 I don’t know…I’M CONFUSED, JUST IGNORE ALL OF THAT.  The past couple of weeks haven’t been my best mentally, I’ll be honest. I won’t lie and say I’ve been a radiant ball of positivity because I really haven’t. I’ve been having a tough time, questioning a lot of things but I’m figuring it out or at least trying. I’ll get back on my feet, I always manage to even when it seems impossible. If I’ve done it…

  • Bits and Pieces On A Budget.

    Hello! So I now have to live on a budget to get through the weeks, I’m sticking to it religiously, I write down everything and all that I aim to spend that week and that is super important at University, you really don’t want to find yourself low on money. BUDGETING IS KEY. Now I want to treat myself every now and then, of course who doesn’t want to treat themselves?! But unfortunately I can’t afford the luxuries I’d freely buy back when I had no responsibilities, I can’t quite justify walking into Topshop and spending a mad amount of money anymore (as much as I am dying to, please…
