Why I chose to move…

So, I loved the flat that I lived in for the last 15 months, but a few things changed recently that had me looking to move. I have the best set up in my last place, I moved in with a guy (a stranger) and he was basically never there. I mean, he would stay… Continue reading Why I chose to move…

Book Club – The Rosie Effect…

The last book review I wrote was about The Rosie Project, spoiler alert: I loved it. I was really apprehensive about whether or not to read the Rosie Effect, because I genuinely didn't know if I needed more. As I say, I loved the Rosie Project, but I thought it was perfect the way it… Continue reading Book Club – The Rosie Effect…

Nails: May, June & July…

I feel like it's been forever since I've done a nails post, so I thought I'd do another one. It's been so long that apparently, I have three different sets of nails to post about. My first set came after the disaster that was breaking off nails and having to have them all taken off.… Continue reading Nails: May, June & July…

Sophdoesnails x Revolution Extra Spice…

It's been a while since I've written about makeup, but I needed to do this post. I LOVE the Sophdoesnails x Revolution original palette. Since purchasing this I pretty much don't use anything else, because I literally don't need to. It is such a good palette and has everything I want or need. As soon… Continue reading Sophdoesnails x Revolution Extra Spice…

My experience with the contraceptive implant…

This is something that can be a little controversial, but I wanted to talk about the contraceptive implant: Implanon/Nexplanon. As a bit of a backstory, I've been using the implant as my contraception or birth control since I was 16. I went to the doctor when I was 16 because I was sexually active and… Continue reading My experience with the contraceptive implant…

Mental Health: what it is like on the other side…

I've been thinking a lot lately. Thinking about all of the amazing posts I had planned. Thinking about how much more positive my relationship had been with my mum. Thinking about how the bad times maybe were less frequent than I remembered them being. Something I've discovered lately is that I don't think it matters… Continue reading Mental Health: what it is like on the other side…

To my dad, on fathers day…

As a society, we are so quick to celebrate mothers but less quick to celebrate fathers. Single mothers are praised as some of the most spectacular people (which they are), but often single fathers are forgotten. My upbringing was not particularly normal. My mum wasn't around very much and my dad raised my brothers and… Continue reading To my dad, on fathers day…

Book Club – The Rosie Project…

So this review is actually a little late, and I may have finished another book since, but it's better late than never right? I actually saw this book recommended a number of times on a Facebook group. If you are a book lover I would highly recommend joining Lost in a Good Book, it's a… Continue reading Book Club – The Rosie Project…

Nails: April & May

As usual, I've neglected the one post that I try to do each month. As you probably know by now, I get my nails done every month. April After some Pinterest stalking, I came across something very cute and neutral for my April's nails. I was a little worried that I might lose some of… Continue reading Nails: April & May

Isle of Paradise – Self Tanning Water…

I am a self-confessed fake tan lover. I don't wear it all the time, because I'm lazy, but sometimes the urge to be bronzed takes over, and I find myself standing naked in my bedroom, air drying before bed. Thankfully, after years of practice, I have pretty much got it down to a well-timed art.… Continue reading Isle of Paradise – Self Tanning Water…
