    F@#k Perfect

    I took longer to try and come up with a title for this post than the whole post took me to write but in the end it was actually quite simple – I am so done with trying to be perfect and f@$k it, I’m done! And this post is my declaration of that. I realised a long time ago that I wasn’t a perfect person and that life wasn’t perfect but that hasn’t stopped the struggles, the perfect body struggles, the perfect home struggles, and more recently, the perfect Instagram account struggles. I am a messy person – my mind is always cluttered, my house is never clean for…

    You Are What You Say You Are

    I used to have this terrible habit where I would feel the need to repeat that I was fat in company just to ensure that everyone around me knew that I knew I was fat and didn’t need to comment or say it themselves. It was a defense mechanism I used for years and I always tried to put a humerous/fake confidence spin on it so that they wouldn’t feel the need to shame me in any way. My identity was basically the fat girl who knew she was fat. I let one thing define me, which was my weight, and it held me back from living a life that…

    Be A Kid Again and Win

    My childhood is something I think about so often, the days where something as simple as a cardboard box could keep me entertained for hours, the times where any and everything could fill me with pure joy. The carefree days as they call them. Sure, there were hard times, like when I couldn’t find my Barbie’s one shoe while Ken was waiting for her to go on their date or when my baby doll just wouldn’t go to sleep so that I could go and mark my own tests and do some work on my calculator, but what I would give to go back to a time where my biggest…

    I’m scared to have kids okay?

    I often wonder what my child will look like. I think about the moment you meet your newborn for the first time, it must be surreal and magical. I try and imagine how my life would change if and when I have a mini me, but I am sure that everything I have thought of isn’t even close to how much it would change and I know that I could never ever fully understand what it would be like until I give birth to life’s most precious gift. Which is why I am scared. I am at the age now where I feel as though the decision needs to be…

    My Experience with 13 Reasons Why S2

    I never really understood trigger warnings, I mean I understood the importance and purpose of them, but I had never experienced any sort of trigger when watching or reading anything with a trigger warning, so I felt like I didn’t completely understand, until yesterday. I was the biggest fan of 13 Reasons Why season 1 and even told my husband when I started season 2 that I think it is my all-time favourite show. I loved how real it was and how it tackled serious issues that are often never shown, or if they are, are watered down in a typical high school movie where a girl gets bullied and…
