A day in the life of… Part II

So we left off just after breakfast. Where I attempted to redeem myself with nutrition supplements and vitamins after my cheesy beans on toast...god that was good. Now a little bit about my home life before I go on. As previously mentioned I live at home with my parents. This is something that for a… Continue reading A day in the life of… Part II

Authenticity or attention seeking ?

If I’m honest, I don’t even know anymore. I guess it’s subjective? I could post a picture on here where I think I look nice and some would think I’m trying to grab attention. I suppose I am in a way, but not necessarily because I’m all ‘look at me, like my photo’ but mostly… Continue reading Authenticity or attention seeking ?

Dear alcohol

“If you’re brave enough to say goodbye. Life will reward you with a new hello” ⁃ Paul Coelho It’s been 164 days since we were last together. Feels longer doesn’t it?

I am the 1%

“It takes nothing to join the crowd. It takes everything to stand alone.” - Hans F. Hansen All my life I’ve felt like the outsider. The one in the group who didn’t quite fit.

So, with this being a permanent lifestyle change I thought I’d better give myself some cushioning for the future occasions where… Continue reading Excite your mouth with a bit of Boucha

Brené Brown said…

God love this woman! She’s so freaking incredible. Like I would legit use her words in an argument. “You don’t know what you’re talking about bitch. Brené Brown said...so don’t you come over here, getting all up in my grill”. I’ve just watched her Netflix show ‘Call to Courage’ for the 3rd time. Today I’m… Continue reading Brené Brown said…

A Sober Education

Who’d have thought? Not a drop of alcohol has passed my lips in 151 days. I am pretty proud of myself but not because of my incredible willpower or determination, because to be honest it’s not really been like that for me. Not this time around anyway. I can’t really explain why but I’ve not… Continue reading A Sober Education
