The Salt Cave – Aberdeen…

I've spoken in the past about my struggles with eczema and latterly, psoriasis. Until a few years ago, most people probably had never heard of psoriasis, until Kim Kardashian brought it into the limelight as she also suffers from it. Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease, and for more information check out my previous post about… Continue reading The Salt Cave – Aberdeen…

Something I just don’t know how to tell people…

I want to start this post with a little bit of a disclaimer. I am aware that the things I'm about to write might sound like I'm moaning, or that I'm nuts, but it's taken me a long time to realise that this is neither my fault or anyone else's around me. I don't want… Continue reading Something I just don’t know how to tell people…

Practicing self care, what does that mean for this millennial…

Self care is a term we've heard thrown about a lot, especially in recent years, and it means different things to different people. I'll be the first to admit that I definitely neglect my own mental health and well-being when life gets busy or hectic but I've found a few little things that I can… Continue reading Practicing self care, what does that mean for this millennial…

Mental health; let’s start at the beginning…

Mental health is something that is still a massive taboo. Although people have become more open to accepting that it is all around us, many still won't talk about it. Myself included sometimes. The other day, while surrounded by many people I know quite well, we got onto the topic of my mum. A lot… Continue reading Mental health; let’s start at the beginning…

The 22nd - 28th January (this week) marks Cervical Cancer Prevention week and ironically, a week ago I received a reminder that I am due to have my next smear test. In 2016 it was announced that the age range in Scotland would change from 20 - 60, to 25 - 64. I was one of… Continue reading Cervical Cancer Prevention Week…

Social media and phone hiatus…

I've really briefly touched on having been signed off work last year. One of the most difficult things I had to admit to myself was that I needed to slow down and give myself a break. It taught me to listen to myself more and pay attention to when things don't feel quite right. For… Continue reading Social media and phone hiatus…

Happy World Mental Health Day…

 Hello! Today is World Mental Health Day and there probably isn't a more important day to truly think about those around us who might be suffering in silence. I've really briefly talked about mental health on my blog before; my mum has been really ill for my entire life and earlier this year I had… Continue reading Happy World Mental Health Day…

Sunday ramblings: good books and mental health…

Hello, It's has been far too long since I last written here because, to be honest, I just haven't had the time or motivation but today I felt a little inspired. My new year's resolution this year was to read a book a month, not for work and not for uni. Just for pleasure and… Continue reading Sunday ramblings: good books and mental health…

My 23rd Birthday & my trip to the hospital…

Hey guys! I am going to apologise in advance because this post is probably going to be really long but I honestly feel like it's so important to tell you about my recent trip to the hospital. I wasn't ill or anything but as women, this is something so important that we should be talking… Continue reading My 23rd Birthday & my trip to the hospital…
