Mental Health and Me - My Story

16.1.18


Mental health problems are now becoming wildly 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.

Ways to improve your body confidence

20.8.17


I'm not perfect. In fact, no one is. Everyone has hang ups with their body, even those who have went out their way to have a cosmetic surgery will find another flaw. I have never really had body confidence. I'm not sure if it's because of how celebrities looked when I was growing up or the name calling I endured while I was a child / teenager. I've always been bad at focusing on all the parts of me I disliked than the ones I liked. But since I have entered my mid-twenties, I've noticed a shift in how I see myself. I've finally realised it's okay to not look exactly like a singer, actress, etc. And it's absolutely okay to highlight or show off what you do like about your body. I thought I'd share my ways on how to improve your body confidence.

Five Happy Things #4

I haven't really been myself the last month or so due to really bad anxiety and panic attacks. But I need to remember that a bad day doesn't mean I have a bad life! I haven't done a round up in a while so here's what's making me smile.

1. Decorating my room
This wasn't intentional in the slightest. There was something wrong with two walls in my room, which had to be knocked down and rebuilt. So I'm currently living in a bit of a hovel at present, but the paint is bought and I'm starting to buy new bits and bobs to go with it! I can't wait until it all comes together.

If you know me, you'll know I can be the sleepiest person ever or I can be up all night with insomnia - there's no in between! My room (especially my bed!) is my safe place and little haven. With the Summer nights upon us, there has been more nights I've not been able to sleep due to the warm weather, light seeping in through the crack in the curtain.. and extreme anxiety! Literally, anything and everything will keep me awake these days. So I thought enough is enough. And with a little help from the Yorkshire Linen Co, here are my tips on how I've started to manage to get more sleep this Summer.
