Why I Stayed Away From Social Media On World Mental Health Day

I’m a mental health blogger. I should be writing a really positive post and be active on social media on this day of all days. Or at least I feel like I should be. Last year I managed to do that. This year I couldn’t. All week I’ve been battling with my depression and in all honesty, I’ve been loosing. I don’t feel like I can talk to anyone about it though; I’ve been told all too often that I’m boring/depressive/that I need to be more happy and no wonder I have no friends/no one likes me.  ...

Goodbye September, Hello October! Monthly Roundup

It’s that time again where I write down how I can’t believe how fast this months gone by. But seriously time, maybe think about slowing down a little? It’s now just 49 days until I turn 24! Also just 49 days until I go back to Harry Potter World so I can’t complain too much really: I’ll be able to use all my birthday money on as much Slytherin merch as possible and apparently I’ll even get to open up the doors to the Great Hall because it’s my birthday- if that’s true I can promise you I  ...

Life Update- August 2017 Roundup

If you’ve been with my blog from the beginning, you might remember waaaay back when I used to do a goals and dear diary style post every month. I kind of fell out of love with them, especially the goals part, so I stopped writing them. Well today I’m bringing them back…kind of! I’ve been thinking about doing a weekly roundup post for a while now (either on my blog or as a separate newsletter) but I quickly realised I might not have the time to do one  ...

Little Life Update: Why I Took a Break From The Internet

So as you may have noticed, I’ve been pretty much absent from both my blog and social media over the past two weeks. There are a couple of reasons why and I thought I’d take this time to give you all a little life update and explain my absence at the same time. Two birds, one stone. So first up- I’ve got my theory test coming up next week! I’m absolutely terrified that I won’t pass first time but I’ve passed all of the practice tests I’ve taken for  ...

Dear Diary: So Much For Organised

Oh my days, this week has tested me more than any other! You would think that going to one of the largest and highly recommended universities in the North that they would be organised. Ha, no! Not even close. As I've mentioned on here I got accepted onto the Digital Media Production course, straight on second year (level 5) as I'd already done two years of graphic design. As such I needed the direct entry timetable which would put me in with the other level 5s. Did they send me  ...

Dear Diary: I Finally Got My Tattoo Covered Up! 

Last week I put a poll on Twitter and asked people if they wanted me to continue with these dear diary formats, as they’d not been getting many views. However the response was 70% continue so I guess that I’ll keep at them, at least until I start getting some negative responses. I know that this post is super late but I finally went and got my tattoo covered up (more about that later) and I’ve been unable to type properly until this afternoon! Monday I published a post  ...

Dear Diary; The Recovery One

Okay so I’m feeling slightly indecisive right now; I’ve noticed that these Dear Diary types of posts don’t get as many views compared to my other posts. Yet I’m running a poll on Twitter at the moment on if I should keep doing them and the answer is predominantly to keep them, so I’m not sure what to do. If you want to help a gal out and vote on how you feel about these types of posts then head over onto my Twitter, the poll is my pinned tweet or you can click  ...

Dear Diary: Welcome To London

Welcome to London.  This is the phrase ForAllThatWander & I have been saying to ourselves constantly over the last few days! As you will know if you’ve been reading either of our blogs over the last few weeks, we’ve spent the bank holiday weekend down in London which is why this post is so late. We both struggle with social anxiety so this was always going to be fun! Abby actually wrote a post called Surviving London: The Social Anxiety Sufferers Guide so be sure to check  ...
