Recently, I've done a lot of looking back on the person I am now compared to the person I was a year ago, and noted my growth. I've grown in confidence, ambition, workload, and the way that I see myself, but at the root of it all, I'm still a little coward at heart. Going to … Continue reading I am Braver than I Think.
Since starting this blog, I've had an ongoing series called My Food Mentality, in which I document my journey from unhealthy food patterns and disordered thinking to finally feeling comfortable in my own skin. However, it has been a while since I gave an update on everything, and I thought I'd explain why... In all honesty, … Continue reading My “Summer Body” & a Healthy Approach to the Gym
To those who accept my "crazy", I know that I'm not always the easiest person to deal with. Sometimes my brain takes over and I lose control, and nothing feels as it should and I begin to doubt everything that I've come to know. I push you away, I say things I don't mean, and … Continue reading A Letter to those who Accept my “Crazy”
I have been blogging for almost a year and a half now. In that time I have gained 3800 followers, now regularly attend events and have collaborated with a variety of amazing brands. People read my words, and they stick around to read more of them. I literally grew this whole thing from nothing in … Continue reading Am I Ashamed of my Blog?

I've had many an unhealthy relationship with my body and my face, and yes, I am probably at my peak of self-confidence, but I still have days where I question things about myself. Before blogging, whilst I took pictures of … Continue reading Imperfections
I haven’t done a post on my food/body positivity journey in a while… In all honesty I had a post that was supposed to come out in October on "5 of my favourite student meals" but I wanted to include pictures and, well, I kept eating the food before I took them… So that will … Continue reading My Food Mentality | Acceptance & New Routines
I find it strange looking back to when I first realised racism existed. Nobody is born with an inherent understanding of racism, it is something that you learn as you grow up in this world and something that you, unfortunately, just come to accept as a way of life. As a child, my dark skin … Continue reading Growing up with Modern Racism…
So lately music has been such a massive part of my life. It always has been but I've really gotten back into song writing as well as just zoning out and listening to music, and I was really torn between doing a post on music in general and sharing some songs that I love with … Continue reading Soundtrack to My Life Tag
So we have come to my week of daily blogging and... well, this was way more stress than I thought it would be. Therefore, I figured for my final post to end my week of daily blogging, I would sum up the experience I've had this week, so here we go... Why I chose to daily blog … Continue reading My Thoughts on Daily Blogging…
Recently I've been feeling a lot better about the way I look. Have I been dieting? Nope. Lost weight? Not considerably. Finally sorted out my hair? Maybe one day... Honestly, nothing about my appearance has really changed at all, and yet I'm able to look in the mirror and feel 10 times better about myself … Continue reading My Food Mentality | Accepting My Body…
