Quarantine Basics

“Does anyone know if we will get through together or not? Or if these times are certain or uncertain? No one letting me know”. Chrissy Teigen In my social media scrolling, that takes up an embarrassingly large amount of my time these days, I’ve discovered; That Chrissy Teigen wins the internet (@commentsbycelebs on insta doesContinue reading “Quarantine Basics”

Way Harsh

I’ve been absolutely blown away by the honest way three of my favourite singers have described their experiences with body dysmorphia and the way harsh way that the public and media have judged them on their appearances.

2020 We have plenty

I’ve been inspired by wonderful Frugalistas and Frugal-Misters to make 2020 a low buy year. I’m looking forward to being more mindful with my spending, basing my purchases on needs rather than wants, embracing minimalism and simplicity and strengthening my will power. Some things are in my no-buy category (clothes, books and homewares), some thingsContinue reading “2020 We have plenty”

Oh bop, fashion!

You need to just stop

No shame and no blame

We waste so much time lamenting things we wish we didn’t do or say or wear or buy. This is unhelpful and floods your body with negative ninny neurones (it’s science).

I hope there will be more and more writing, reading, dancing, walking, exercising, studying, Taylor singing, comedy quoting and wig snatching to come thisContinue reading “How’d I do?”

Imperfect

I’ve been back into my long walks recently and 11 hours of listening to Wayne Dyer’s Ultimate Library on Audible has kept me company for much of it (along with T. Swizzle’s “Lover” obvs.). This statement struck me and has been on replay in my mind ever since… “My time, my wine, my spirit, myContinue reading “Imperfect”

Put yourself out there

It can be scary being visible. Especially when your default setting is hide behind the pot plant. I love to write-to write-to write but the sharing-is-caring part was trickier. One night in late September 2016 (I think it was a Thursday), I woke up and sat bolt upright. I had an idea, “A personal blogContinue reading “Put yourself out there”
