Learning to not give a sh*t about Instagram

Let me set the scene: I'd just posted a photo to my Instagram, I'd edited it on 3 different apps, came up with a pretty average caption with an emoji or two thrown in, posted and then sat watching my Instagram 'likes' appear on my notifications every 5 minutes until I went to bed. Then … Continue reading Learning to not give a sh*t about Instagram

Should feminism have ever become a ‘trend’?

With my blogging hiatus came the lose of blog post inspiration and, as much as there is nothing wrong with hauls and posts that are made up of outfit photos, I love to write and for me there’s just no substance in that. So, a few weeks of thought and a purchase of a feminism … Continue reading Should feminism have ever become a ‘trend’?

*English* Summer Days

Why I’m no longer scared to admit I am a Catfish.

Before I start, this post will have probably been sat unpublished for a while. I have a fear of admitting or talking about myself and what I'm about to publish, because although for years I've shared myself online, I'm a very private person.

Coffee Table Essential Reads (Even Without The Coffee Table)

For a girl with no coffee table or even a bookcase, I own quite a few coffee table books. I think there's just something about a book with beautiful images, especially in pink tones, I'm drawn to and one day I hope to have a coffee table to put these on and maybe a bookcase … Continue reading Coffee Table Essential Reads (Even Without The Coffee Table)
