Have you guessed yet? It’s kind of in the name. Ruby cup are a brand of reusable menstrual cups that provide an alternative to disposable sanitary products. Now, this reusable concept won’t come as news to many of you, some of you are probably using them already, but for me this was a definite first. Apologies in advance if…

My Mam and me were chatting about Facebook one evening, generally about the stuff that people post on there. She then happened to mention that one of her Facebook friends had posted about her mental health on one of her statuses, something my Mam thought was wrong. Something which I disagreed with. Something that I made her aware of is…

I am usually the one who ‘gets on with it’.  I am usually the one who puts on a smile and turns every negative obstacle into a positive passage of opportunity.  Flawlessly. I am usually the one who puts everyone else and their feelings before me, and then never really has the time to think about myself at all.  And that’s okay.  But, they say…

Ever fancied being one of those people that can throw on a pair of trainers and hit the streets - get out and run your little legs off with no cares in the world. Well that certainly aint me! I get up, get out and wonder the whole time why the hell am I doing this and how long until…

Scrolling through my Insta feed, conscious that my weekly screentime has soared since the start of lockdown but still wanting to nose on how everyone’s been adapting, I saw a post by @ThereSheGlowsBlog_ that said “Pretty is not the rent you pay to exist in this world as a woman” and it knocked me sideways. It felt like an epiphany.…

To labour a cliché, I’m going to share with you my “weight loss journey”. I’ve been a healthy weight for just over ten years now. That’s not discounting a few holidays here and there where a few extra pounds have come knocking, but I’ve consistently managed to shed them almost as quickly as they were gained. However, over the 2019…

Seeing lots of people out and about running might either inspire you to have a go or be quite daunting. I’ve been running for the past six years and sometimes I love it and other times, it’s hard work. The act of running for me is to help not only physically but with my mental health as well. Getting out…

It’s not an easy time for anyone right now! Regardless of whether or not you struggle with your mental health, most people must be experiencing some level of anxiety and low mood right now. I’m by no means an expert in mental health, but I do feel like I’m mentally handling the current Coronavirus situation better than I expected, and…

I wrote a post a little over a week ago about my love for lockdown. I still love lots about it, like the family bubble and not having to worry about the outside world. In fact I still love it—full stop! Buuuuuut, I’m also losing my shit a bit. I’m still worrying about stuff that isn’t on the scale of…

Being on furlough can be a lonely time. Whilst I feel very grateful that I have all this time for self development, Netflix, YouTube etc. being alone, with not much on your mind can really leave you overthinking EVERYTHING. Living with an invisible disability isn’t fab at the best of times. Whilst I was at work I at least had…
