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…

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…

Cervical Cancer Prevention Week…

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…

Teeth whitening: what do I do?

Hey! So, I wrote a post back in June about oil pulling and honestly at the time I had the greatest intention to do it once a week because it seriously made a difference in cleaning out the buildup in my few squint teeth. But like all good intentions, I didn't... I couldn't deal with… Continue reading Teeth whitening: what do I do?

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: it’s been a WEEK…

Hey guys, This week has been a week! I woke up on Monday morning with a bit of a cold which then ended up completely flooring me. By Thursday I was as white as a ghost and spent Friday working from home, in my pyjamas. Mentally it has been really draining as well, but I… Continue reading Sunday ramblings: it’s been a WEEK…

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.

Teeth Whitening: Oil Pulling…

Hi Guys, I drink a lot of tea and coffee, as in a LOT. This means that unfortunately my teeth aren't as white as I'd like. They really aren't as bad as they could be and I credit that to one specific toothpaste. I don't know about anyone else but I am so picky with… Continue reading Teeth Whitening: Oil Pulling…

Self Care, what does it mean to you…

So, this post is a little different than the last few I've done. Recently I've realised that I really need to take better care of myself, not just physically, but mentally. It can be really easy to forget about our mental health and not give ourselves the care and attention that we need. I am… Continue reading Self Care, what does it mean to you…
