Five Things To Do This Halloween

Halloween is almost upon us – and I don’t know about you but I’m VERY excited. There’s something very satisfying about having an occasion to celebrate and feel like a kid again. It’s an excuse to eat lots of sweet treats, get creative with your costume and spend the night with friends, spooking one another out. If you’re not opting for a night out this year, I thought I’d put together a couple of ideas for things you could do to celebrate instead. You don’t needs tonnes of money – just a creative brain and a few willing participants. Muhahahaha….…

A Little Bit of Blogger Love!

Before I started blogging, I pretty much thought I was the only person in the world (or at least, in my then very naive view of the world) who loved writing, fashion and photography. All of my friends were into clothes and boys and drinking things we weren’t supposed to, but everyone thought writing and photography was a bit – dare I say it – geeky.

How to make the internet a friendlier place

The past few weeks have really opened my eyes up to how cruel the internet can be. I’m pleased to say that until a few months ago, I’d never really received any negative comments or harsh words about my blog. I think written blogs in general tend to be a friendlier place than other platforms – and so largely, I’d been sheltered by the fact that I hadn’t yet ventured onto YouTube.

One for the over-thinkers

Staying positive is easier said than done. 9 times out of 10, the automatic response to a negative thought pattern is a quick ‘try not to worry’, which invariably doesn’t help. But there are times when over-thinking something, mulling over a past mistake or overanalysing an interaction, slips into the unhealthy realm. When it consumes you on a regular basis and you find yourself obsessing over things, robbing you of enjoying moments in the present. My beautiful friend Em recently wrote a post which really got me thinking about how much over-thinking seems to consume my daily life. I know I’m…
