As the months are quickly passing us by, it's been a year so far filled with all things female and I've been loving it! With International Women's Day (8th March) and Mother's Day (31st March) having just been celebrated, I'm certainly feeling the girl power. From our own family members to strangers, women inspire us every day and I thought…

Ok, admit it, being single can suck sometimes. The loneliness and tediousness of it can be trying and you feel like grabbing the first tube of Pringles you can find in your cupboard at night to get rid of the single blues. However, I'm here to tell you ladies and gentlemen - being single is not as depressing and lowly…

Guilt Guilt Guilt, oh and Guilt. When you are pregnant everyone tells you how hard it is when you have a baby: the sleepless nights, the feeding, the nappy changing the wanting a minute to yourself to eat a biscuit, a large slice of cake or to inhale a  glass of wine. Yes this is true, but I have found…

Being in a relationship that is controlling is difficult. You lose who you are and fade into someone who is scared, meek, fragile and isolated. I was this person.   Losing Control I was in an abusive relationship. This difficult time lasted for almost 10 years. There was physical abuse, but the hardest to deal with and to get over…

We all feel down sometimes. Stuff happens. Sometimes life throws you a curve ball. We feel all the feels, sometimes for a reason, and sometimes for no good reason at all.

We're all going to experience this in some form, whether it's a relationship break-up, the loss of a family member, or the end of a friendship. I may be stating the bleeding obvious here, but heartbreak is upsetting, soul destroying and, well, heart-breaking. But the 'H' word can perhaps be seen as a blessing in disguise. Let's put it another…

I glance across the table as you take a sip of your drink. Red wine of course; we’re adults now. We catch up as we swap stories of our adventures and glee, of beer fear and the hangover anxiety that claimed you last week… As it does after every heavy night. Laughter engulfs your face from your mouth to your…

"You don't look disabled" "Why are you parked there?" "There's nothing wrong with you!" The amount of times I've had to hold my tongue and stop myself from telling people to eff off has been a challenge and a half over the years. But unfortunately, this is my life when I go out and about in public. Well, not all…

Being an easy wanderer, or rather, someone who naturally gets lost on their way somewhere, I have found that often, I find the best, most pleasantly surprising things in the quietest, most unsuspecting of neighbourhoods. It took me 2 hours to find 163 steps worth of beautifully tiled brickwork on 16th Avenue, San Francisco, but the neighbourhood itself was no…

So, the year has come that I'm leaving my teenage days behind me, and to say that they have been a bit mad would be an understatement. Growing up and finding my way in life has proven to be a scarily confusing journey. Nothing at all out of the ordinary. I've had a very simple, happy life so far compared…
