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.

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…

Doctor Fish? I needed a doctor alright. The irony of the name. Never, ever again. What was i thinking putting myself in that position all in the name of pretty feet. let’s face it, feet are ugly and anything we can do to help that we do try. This was a step too far…literally. Here is my story about the one and only time i had a fish pedicure. As flip-flop season comes upon us we attempt to make our trotters more human like after the cold winter. I am not one of those lucky folk with pretty soft feet. This new craze has taken off and everyone seemed to be jumping to try it. Fish pedicures were all the…

I was holding back on this one because i know it’s a controversial one. A programme aired on Ch4 last night about “plus size” bloggers. Did anyone see this? Of course there has been comments made in the media today. I in no way promote obsesity. Does anyone? I think of late more and more diverse girls are coming forward and saying no im not conforming to society’s idea of what is acceptable. Size wise i fall into both categories. I can shop “regular” on the high street for the most part but can also wear pieces from the “plus” section. Fashion has been my passion from no age. Is someone now going to tell me i shouldnt be able…
