Late night thoughts

Do we ever know what we truly want to do with our lives?

Are there actually people out there, that just know what they want to do and know how to get it?

I find it all so very strange.

I feel like I am sometimes absolutely not adult enough in this world to do things, and I just have no idea what to do.

Quite a few people come to me for advice, but at the end of the day I feel that people should be giving me advice.

How can I preach about this and that when I haven’t experienced it? How can I advise you to do this and that in your relationship when I am not in one myself?

How can you move out of your family home, when the rent is so high for someone to live on their own?

It’s 1am and I am having all of these thoughts.

First year of being 30


It’s nearly finished, my first year of being 30 and it’s been different lets say.

This year I thought I would have a lot of shit together.

Hopefully this will change in 2020. New decade new me? I doubt it.

One tweet can change everything.


Well this is a bit different isn’t it?

fyi, this is a super long post… im sorry but also not.

As you may or may not know the past few months in my life have been a bit, bonkers shall we say. It seems that in my life, things happen in a pattern where I have a day of absolute hell, then 3 days later something positive happens.

For example, in 2011 we were on holiday and we received a phone call to state that my lovely Grandad had passed, and 3 days later I got into uni and got the grades I had to get! This year, it unfortunately happened again – my Nan passed away and I got a call I never thought I would receive, from the BBC…

Autumn, my love


It’s that time of year again, the awkward stage between Autumn and Winter season and what is a girl to do?

Around this time of year is where all the girlies and of course some lovely boys get out their extra thick woolly jumpers, their gorgeous new coats, hats, scarves and gloves and pretend to look so glamorous yet not look cold and very hot at the same time. So I thought I would put together some of the essentials which I always have around this time of year, with of course some new additions.
