I originally started this post last year as it was something that i was seeing more and more of. For one reason or another , i won’t bore a sister with those deets , i never pressed published. That being said my opinions have not changed on this subject whatsoever. Infact a few things have happened that have pushed me to have my say on the matter. Christmas is just around the corner. Yes that is the first C-bomb I’ve dropped so you know shit’s getting serious. This time of year everybody is looking for presents for their loved ones. Hell you even gotta treat yourself. Money is tight. People just don’t have what they used to but they and…

Us ladies rock. Being a feminist has a certain stigma attached to it though. There isn’t always that much support for each other either. Not in a burning our bra’s and plaiting our leg hair kind of way. Instead i like to think of the positives of modern day women absolutely killing it in this sometimes brutal world. We drew the short straw biologically with the whole peeing sitting down and womb falling out every 28 days thing. That is before hormones and emotions. Who hasn’t cried when there is no milk in the fridge? Even when they don’t like milk. See it’s tough at the top. And at the top is where i’m going with this one. So even with…

There has been something on my mind the last while. Something really negative that has got to me. I have tried and tried to not think about this or get consumed, but really there is no hiding from it. There has been a massive shift within the blogging community, one i’m not sure that readers are that aware of. Yes, as it goes i am relatively new to blogging myself. I am a little gold fish in a great ocean really. I have been an avid reader of many for years and adore the art of blogging. A blog is a platform for people to express themselves, to voice opinions and thoughts. A place to share their words, images and…

Saturday the 10th of October was World Mental Health Day. For me it was just another Day. I really wanted to get in on the action and share a post. I really wasn’t able though yesterday, i just wasn’t. The irony of suffering with your mental health on Mental Health Day.  But that is just it, there is no control, no knowing, it can hit at any time. The importance of this day is to raise awareness and try and lift the stigma that surrounds mental health. It’s 2015, the year where Marriage Equality was achieved in Ireland. The year where disabled models made history on catwalks. Yet this stigma still stands strong. It is estimated that one in four or…

 There has been a lot of talk of late about Adult Colouring books. You will in no doubt have seen these around and thought eh what’s going on here? They are growing more and more in popularity. It’s not that we are regressing into childhood play mode but rather exploring new ways to mind our minds.  People are so busy nowadays. Working more hours than ever. In these recessional times, stress levels are at an all time high.  Let me tell you, stress eats away at the body. Concentrating gets harder, sleeping gets less frequent, the body aches, mood gets lower. That is to name just a few affects. Winding down and relaxing the mind will in-turn relax the body. A peaceful…
