How have you been this lock-down? Since I am pretty sure all my readers are UK based and now in the drudgery of a third lock-down, I think we can assume we’re all feeling the same. Lethargic. I feel like the joy and energy has been sapped from life, and I am just waiting out until the end and hoping for the best. Daily, it’s a struggle. But these mini lectures and art workshops have given me little pockets of meaningfulness and learning, so I wanted to share them with you.
We all need a little TLC now and then – more-so nowadays than ever! I thought I’d treat myself to a mini haul from GeekyClean, a place that specialises in handmade bath bombs with a nerdy twist. They have a huge selection of D&D themed ones so I gave them a go… here’s my verdict!
I haven’t really been blogging much this year. I mean, what is there to write about when everything is chaos and sadness? But I thought I’d make my obligatory New Year’s resolutions post. I feel like every year I get a little closer to understanding what it is that will help me live my life to the fullest the following year. Whether I achieve them, is another story…
I tend to have these weird moments sometimes where I think “wouldn’t it be cool to do this thing I’ve not thought through, that pushes me way out of my comfort zone?” and then I just do it. So, today I did my first stint as a plus size life model. I only posed in the (almost) nude in front of absolute strangers, no big deal.
Halloween is on a Saturday this year – for the first time in who knows how long (probably calendars) – and I have really struggled to get into the spirit this year! Have you? I am one of those “Halloween season starts in September” people usually, but this year with no promise of going to a Halloween party any time soon I’ve been finding other ways to celebrate Halloween at home.
When visiting Faster Lente Llamas this weekend- a glamping site with added llamas – I finally exhaled. I felt like the breath that I’d been holding for the past few weeks had finally been released. It was tranquil, it was blissful… and there were llamas. I invite you to explore this amazing experience vicariously through me, and then maybe go and try it for yourself.
So… haha… bleeding. For anyone who’s ever had a menstrual cycle, we can confirm it’s just NOT FUN. Period. (That joke would work, if I were American.) For every person who’s felt the discomfort of a period, the embarrassment of a leak or the annoyance of having to find a place to change your tampon… Look no further. Floweret cup is a game-changer.

There’s one thing I will always believe in, and that’s the kindness of strangers. After speaking to Brad, who runs Bib Noodle bar with his wife, Qifen for just a few short encounters, he was kind enough to offer me and my pals an exclusive dining experience to experiment with their new menu! Here’s how it went.
It’s not like I need an excuse nowadays to get a massive Lush order in. I spend about half my time in bed or in the bath nowadays since I’ve had the excuse not to go anywhere. Lush Halloween is just an excuse for me to buy a heck load of things that match my all year round aesthetic. So here’s a rundown of what I bought and what I thought! (Oh look, a little Halloween rhyme. You can ‘av that one for free.)
If there’s one thing I’ve been doing more these last few months, it’s treating myself to the little things. Those small things that I can change for myself have helped keep me afloat for a while. Whether that be making a self-care to help combat my anxiety and stress, or just straight up pampering myself, here are some of the products I use and wanted to recommend to you!
