How comparing myself to others turns into misplaced anger

It took me a long time to realise that a lot of my depression was manifesting into misplaced anger. And that a lot of that was directed at people I could not help but compare myself to.

Fashion inspired by musicians: Dodie

I’ve been wanting to do a series for a while now where I recreate outfits inspired by my favourite musicians (as well as my favourite films, TV shows, etc.) but I’ve always hesitated. What’s the line between inspiration and just completely recreating an outfit? Not that there is anything wrong with recreating your favourite outfitsContinue reading “Fashion inspired by musicians: Dodie”

How I’m starting to combat letting my idolised self take over my life

I’ve talked to you about the highs of being a rainbow potato (which, if you haven’t seen my YouTube branding is basically what I’ve dubbed myself – I’m not sure why but it just fits) but I wanted to talk to you a little bit today about being afraid to start something. All my lifeContinue reading “How I’m starting to combat letting my idolised self take over my life”

Mental Health Awareness Week: How birth control affected my mental health

I hesitated writing this post for a lot of reasons but not least that I don’t want this post to feel like it exits only because it’s mental health awareness week this coming week but sometimes moments like ‘mental health awareness week’ force you to have that little bit of courage to speak up. So today,Continue reading “Mental Health Awareness Week: How birth control affected my mental health”

Book review: Ready to Fall by Marcella Pixley

I am more than a little bit late with my review of this book (this book was published in the UK on March 15th) but my life has been very hectic recently so I didn’t have time to properly sit down and finish this book till now.  I also just want to quickly mention atContinue reading “Book review: Ready to Fall by Marcella Pixley”

Blog: Dodie O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire concert 1/04/18

Also, secondly welcome to my first ever concert review. Well, it’s not a review but more of a recap of my experience. So last night IContinue reading “Blog: Dodie O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire concert 1/04/18”

Turtles All the Way Down: Review

Turtles All the Way Down centres on 16 year old Aza Holmes who suffers from multiple anxiety disorders including obsessive-compulsive disorder. The plot covers friendship, loss, living with mental health issues and a bunch of other random bits that make the book great. As I don’t suffer with obsessive compulsive disorder, I found the lookContinue reading “Turtles All the Way Down: Review”

Year in review: The highlights and fails of my 2017

I chose this picture of green tea because I’m ‘spilling all my tea’ about the year (yeah, the expression doesn’t sound as good when I say it) and the only tea I like is green tea.  Is this post a bit too late? Yes, but I’m going to do it anyway. Plus, I wanted toContinue reading “Year in review: The highlights and fails of my 2017”

Anti Bullying Week: My experiences and what I’ve learnt

It’s anti bullying this week so I thought it’d be an apt time to jump on the bandwagon as it were and discuss my experiences with bullying. I’ve been bullied on several different occasions and at times although I didn’t fully realise at the time I have engaged in bullying behaviour. I think a lotContinue reading “Anti Bullying Week: My experiences and what I’ve learnt”
