May #Paperhaul Stationery Subscription Collection

When May #Paperhaul arrived I shrieked in excitement because flamingos are one (dogs and giraffes the other faves) of my all-time favourite animals and I knew before opening the package (there's a sticker on the parcel that gives a sneak peek at the inside) that I was going to be obsessed.

5 Binge-Worthy Netflix Shows

You may or may not have noticed that I didn't post much last week. I had a pretty shitty few days the week before and decided I needed to give myself a break from my blog. I've been putting so much pressure on myself to write and schedule three posts a week that it was affecting my mood and my health. So, I had a few days off, spent a lot of them with Netflix, and decided what better topic to write about than the shows I've bingeing on.

Me, Myself and My Hair, Spoonie Style

I've had quite a lot of hairstyles and various colours throughout the years, and I must admit I haven't always taken the best care of my hair. For some reason unbeknown to me (could it be the faulty collagen with EDS doing me a service?), my hair has consistently looked in good condition and had a lovely shine to it without doing much to it; and as I'm spoonie, I'm extremely grateful for this.

Mental Health Is As Important As Physical Health

It's Mental Health Awareness Week and I wanted to continue the conversation about MH. It's been a few months since I talked about it, and to be quite honest, I thought I was doing good. Then my physical health took a turn for the worse, and a few things online triggered me and knocked me back. It was actually a year ago that I first shared my MH story, and you can read it here, if you fancy it.

6 Bright Lipsticks For Spring/Summer

Do you change up your lipstick colour with the season? I never thought I did but I do tend to gravitate towards brighter, bolder shades in the warmer months. I wear them when it's A/W too just not as often. I guess I'm a 'whatever I feel like' kinda girl. If it's October, raining and miserable, I'll throw on a bright orange if that's the aesthetic for the day. I mean, I live in the UK, there's not a lot of opportunities to match up bright shades with the sun.

10 Ways To Chill Out

I'm writing this extremely pissed off. I'm actually slamming my keyboard with much more vehemence than is necessary and there's a rage inside me burning brightly. Why? Because I've had a pretty shitty day, it's been long, painful and people have wound me up on all kinds of levels. My laptop has just had a meltdown and I thought I'd lost a years worth of pics, so that didn't help either. Anyway, I'm putting on my positivity pants, they're black like my soul, and I'm going to turn the frown upside down.

Life Lately: Health and More

I'm always very honest and open on my little corner of the internet, and in odd posts I give away snippets of my life, but I haven't written an update in quite some time. Alas, all that is about to change.

April Favourites

How did we get to May already? I feel like I blinked and lost a month. Anyway a recap of April - it was pretty uneventful and I spent the majority of it in a flare, and still am - chronic life joys. I've revamped my Instagram though, and am actually really loving it. Oh, and I have a giveaway live over there, so go and check it out, you could win a limited edition Jouer Cosmetics highlighter.

Hooray, April #Paperhaul has arrived and it's bloody beautiful. This collection is screaming SUMMER to me and I'm not mad at it (despite being a winter baby). The colour, the theme, the typography, it's all beautiful.
