Happy Place

Me and the #WonderfulSupportiveBoyfriend are currently travelling through South East Asia - which is pretty exciting! I feel really lucky to be able to do something like this. We've been here just over a week and we are currently in Thailand. We came into Bangkok and...

The end is in sight!

Last night I had the final tutorial for this module of my degree! I have completed my final assignment and now I just have to complete an online test and a final essay. Full steam ahead to the finish line - this module has been tough and pretty stressful at times but...

Listen to your soul.

Recently I have been really listening to my soul. I can easily start to fixate on what I look like and what clothes size I am and if I am having a skin breakout. Recently, I have tried to focus on something deeper than that, what will make my soul happier? I've...

Adventure Is Out There!

So, we have been back from Peru for about a month now and we officially have the travel bug!! There is going to be a lot of big changes in the lives of my #WonderfulSupportiveBoyfriend and myself over the next 6 months or so - which we are really, really excited...

Peru 2019

We've been back from Peru for a few weeks and I wanted to keep on the momentum of the trek to keep living a healthier, more active life. However, a few health things have got in the way but I am still determined to get back to a place where I can challenge myself...

Looking After Yourself.

Woah. I have had a super busy time recently! A good time, but certainly a bit hectic. I visited Portugal to see one of my closest friends get married which was so incredibly beautiful. It was a perfect day and was really emotional to see people I care about so much be...

Assignment Success!

As you know from previous posts, I am finding this module of my degree pretty challenging, to say the least! My second assignment did not go to plan but I worked really hard on improving and I submitted my third assignment feeling a little bit better about it but...

The skill of picking yourself up.

I got my assignment back for my module and I did not do as well as I would have liked. I knew that it wasn't my best work as I have been finding the topics quite challenging!! I am disappointed and I know that I am going to have to work harder to get my head around...

Making Time To Relax.

I like to be busy. It helps me keep my anxiety at bay and I guess it is a way to use that energy for something more productive. I have a lot on my plate at the moment; a degree to study for, a blog to write, a business to build, a podcast to create, mental health...

Second Essay…

The second essay of my second module towards my degree was due today. It's submitted but it was a challenging one! This module is tackling a lot of subjects that are new to me - which means that my brain is working really hard to figure it all out. I know that getting...

It’s Been A While…

Sorry about that. To be honest I have been struggling a lot with my mental health over the past few months. I have spent a lot of time trying to figure out what I want and how I can regain some control over my life and I think I am beginning to carve path for myself -...
