Back in July I wrote a blog post about music being influential on writing, explaining that writers craving silence and solitude was a stereotype and ABSOLUTELY NOT how I like to write. Click here if you want a little slice of recap. But a TLDR is: Some writers finds the blank page daunting, and music […]
Day 22. So, I know that as an adult I must take responsibility for my actions. But what I’m about to tell you is not my fault. I was going really well. Was. And I’d had a lot of support from my readers and friends. Had. That was until this week just gone. I returned […]
Day 18. So, it’s been a minute since I last caught you up on my Sugarless Journey. And if I’m honest – I’m kinda over the whole thing. My weight has stayed the same (I know, we’re all shocked) my mood has returned to normal, mainly because I’ve started having tea with sweetener, and my […]
I looked in his eyes as I told him, ‘I can’t have children.’ And he recoiled. ‘That’s so
sad,’ he said. ‘Why?’ I asked. ‘Because… having children – that’s what makes you a woman.

Then I guess I’m not a woman.
Usually, I preface these reviews with the intro about how I only read three chapters being interrupted by my mum… yada yada. But today’s review is part of a #BlogTour for Anna Ellory and I’ve decided to take a slight detour – so, if you’re ready for the emotional rollercoaster, sitting comfortably etc, I’ll begin. […]
Day 5. Okay… I’ll be the first to admit Day 3 was tricky. Some (my family) might even go as far as to say my mood was ‘extra’ or ‘aggressive’. (There’s no might, those are the actual words my family used to describe me.) But I can confirm that Day 5 finds me in a […]
At this point, I’m wondering if giving up added sugar for my health is worth the health of those around me. Because, and I cannot stress this enough, I’m ready to straight-up f**king murder someone.
Day 1. (Explicit) I woke up feeling immediate regret. I needed a cup of tea. I needed strong breakfast tea with a dash of milk and one sugar. Just one couldn’t hurt? I resisted. I’d just drink water. Water is really good for you, I told myself. It’s great for your skin, helps regulate body […]
It’ll be no surprise to most, if not all, of those who know me – I hate my body. This will have a positive outcome I promise! Just keep reading… There’s a lot that frustrates me about my physique, which goes beyond not being as ‘skinny’ as I’d like to be. As you know, I […]
We have a new addition to the family. Zoe O’Donnell is a gorgeous springer spaniel puppy, and she’s the light of my life. Admittedly, she’s not my dog – but my brother and his girlfriend are proving to be great dog-parents. They want to take her wherever they go but, unfortunately, that’s not always possible. […]
