Getting out of that depressive rut

Hey, lovelies! As I write this, I'm curled up in bed, thinking about the inevitable future, and wondering if situations will improve anytime soon. It's a helpless state of mind; one that is disturbing my brain chemistry. I'm in a rut. Today just seems to have been my unlucky day, and why such minute matters… Continue reading Getting out of that depressive rut

23 things I’ve learned in 23 years

It's almost bizarre to know that I've been 23 for a few months now, especially considering I remember January as if it were yesterday, and the transition from winter to spring seems to have been rather fickle (I'm sure it was snowing just over a month ago!). These past 23 years, I've learned a lot… Continue reading 23 things I’ve learned in 23 years

Have you ever made time to take yourself on a date for one?

It might sound weird, it feels weird to be typing this right now too, but really, when is the last time you took yourself on a date? When is the last time you made yourself happy? An integral part of self-love is the ability to be happy in the presence of your own company, so… Continue reading Have you ever made time to take yourself on a date for one?

How to love yourself

A few years ago, I spent night after night crying in my room, googling "how to deal with being the ugliest person in the world". I'd just gotten out of a pretty messy relationship wherein I was made to feel disgusting and like I didn't belong on this earth, and I was extremely depressed. It… Continue reading How to love yourself

Are you ready for comic con?

Here in London, MCM Comic Con is looming ever nearer at less than a week away as I write this. I've been carefully preparing for a couple of months now, but, as always, I feel completely unready. It's a massive event for the "geeky" community, wherein some people cosplay their favourite characters, and some even… Continue reading Are you ready for comic con?

We need to talk about mental health

For some reason, it can be a bit of a taboo subject online. This is partially due to the fact that mental illness is not linear, and not everybody experiences the same hardships as one another. The debate about whether or not antidepressants work has been a hot topic for quite a while now, but… Continue reading We need to talk about mental health

Get the haircut: Tuttii Fruittii London, and why I decided to cut my hair short

There are a few staples in my life that make everything feel stable. One is being able to get a nap in if the previous night left me feeling untested. Another - doing at least one productive thing every day. Be that reaching my daily target on Duolingo, decluttering, writing, or even just making a… Continue reading Get the haircut: Tuttii Fruittii London, and why I decided to cut my hair short

Hello, April…

It's been a year, but I'm glad you're back. When March stays rather wintry, April is usually a good indication that spring has finally sprung. As much as I love romanticising longer nights, hot cocoa, and cosy blankets, I thrive when the sun is out. The weather forecast isn't looking great for the next week… Continue reading Hello, April…

Sora loves: Top Collar dog treats

Today's post is going to be a little bit different - since getting a puppy who has taken over most aspects of my life, I would like to dedicate this little corner to him and the things he's loving.

Anxiety: What is it, and how can you deal with it?

Though best to be diagnosed by a doctor for clarification, those who suffer from anxiety will be more than familiar with the symptoms. It isn't an occasional bout of nerves, nor a quirky personality type. Anxiety is a sometimes crippling mental illness that disrupts even the most basic aspects of day to day life. Several… Continue reading Anxiety: What is it, and how can you deal with it?
