Why You Should Take 'Over-Emotional' As A Compliment

‘You cry at everything!’      ‘It’s just a film!’       ‘You get excited too easily!’
Ever had those things said to you? Yep, me too. For as long as I can remember I’ve had everyone I know tell me I’m over-emotional. Occasionally, I’ll find someone who thinks it’s a good thing and they won’t poke fun at me for it, but most of the time people see it as a negative trait. Well, I’m here to tell you why it’s NOT!

My Bucket List | Travel

There are so many things I want to do. Every day I wake up with something new added to my list, whether that be some new place that I want to travel or a new job I want to try my hand at. I have a list as long as my arm of all the things I want to do in my tiny little life, so, I thought it would make a fun little series on this blog to create some bucket lists! I love having goals and things I want to do written down as it motivates me more to get them done, plus it leaves empty space in my brain for more ideas to pop in. I’ve decided to start off with travel, as this is probably the easiest and biggest bucket list I’ll write, but, I have narrowed this list down to ten things! I’m sure there’ll be more added to this list over time but as of right now, these are my top 10 places I want to travel to/see!

5 Things Not To Say To Someone With Acne

I’ve kept it no secret on this blog that I’ve struggled with acne since my early teens. For around 12 years now I have been struggling to get my skin under control and feel confident when I walk out of the door. 12 bloomin’ years of creams, gels, tablets and the fear that it would never go away.
Over the years that I’ve had acne, I’ve had many people share their opinions on my skin with me. Whether that’s been horrible people calling me names because of it, or people trying to offer help but who just end up making me feel self-conscious and embarrassed. If it’s acne related, trust me, I’ve heard it, and today I thought I would share five things that you shouldn't say to people with acne!

The Soundtrack You NEED To Listen To

A few weeks ago I got a message from my fellow music-loving friend, Kieran, containing two youtube links and the message ‘think you’ll really like these’. 14 songs and an hour of ugly crying later, I was obsessed with Dear Evan Hansen.

How Getting Outside Can Help To Increase Your Productivity

Getting out of my house is incredibly important to me. Even if it’s just sitting in my back garden for a little while each day, it’s something I have to make sure I do. Anyone who read my 2017 goals post will know that getting out more was my top priority for this year, mainly due to the fact that last year I went through a bit of a rough patch and ended up barely leaving my house for around 2 months. That was the worst thing I could’ve done in that situation! Since I’ve started getting outside more, I’ve seen a huge increase in productivity, motivation and just my general happiness, so I wanted to share some of the benefits of getting outside with anyone else who spends more than enough time inside the same four walls.
