14.8.18


As people already know, Calum and I bought a house last November - it was a bit of a rush to get in and settled before Christmas but I'm loving how our little updates are coming along! We already feel settled in our home already - I love being able to say we have a home.

What's not to love about freshly cut flowers? I try and buy a fresh bunch every week to give our living room a little boost.

Lets Talk about Dyspraxia

20.7.18


Ever since I was little, I kind of knew I done things differently from my friends and found some tasks quite difficult. I just thought that was how I was.

I've recently been diagnosed with a condition called dyspraxia. Something I have never heard of before, but now that I know what it's about, I can now see this is something I have always had.

York Photo Diary!

4.3.18

This post is ever so slightly late, as Calum and I went to York at the end of November. We kind of went here randomly for all the Christmas markets and culture. It was absolutely freezing and York flooded while we were there, but we loved it there.

Below are some photo's I snapped up while we were there, I can't wait to go back when it's a tad warmer!


Mental Health and Me - My Story

16.1.18


Mental health problems are now becoming widely acknowledged in the UK. There is still a big stigma around it and a lot of people experience discrimination. I have experienced my fair share of abuse over the years because of the way I felt. Looking back now, even though I only sought help for my mental health at 22, but I believe I suffered way before that. Possibly starting in my teens. This is my story.

It takes a lot of research, hard work and determination to bag a new job. It's not always easy, but you need to have your heart in the searching to help you succeed. I've had people come to me over the years asking how I manage to get get a new job.

I thought I'd share some tricks and tips that I have picked up over the years to help you look for the career you really want, or even just to get yourself back out there!

Be honest
I know some people tell the odd fib in their CV, but being completely honest is the way forward. I have went for jobs I sometimes didn't have the exact skills for or experience they need within reason, and even though I'm sometimes turned down, I have also got jobs this way. Employer's will admire you for being honest and for trying, some may even take you on and train you up for the job.

Keromask Make Up

22.10.17

As a lot of people already know, I suffer from acne to the point were I try my very best to cover it up. Because I have oily skin though, my makeup seems to just come off after a few hours, and reapplying it makes my face look patchy or blotchy.

I was approached to try out Keromask - which is a brand of camouflage make up. It is known for covering up many skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, scars, birth marks, unwanted tattoos.. literally all skin conditions and flaws!

I jumped at the chance to try this, as I'm desperate to find something to hide my acne once and for all.
