My lovely friend is forever feeding me her vegan snacks to convert me to her vegan agenda… Lol JK, she knows how much of a foodie I am, so she decided to give me a box of goodies! My friend does regular ratings of vegan snacks on Instagram, to see what she feels are are the best in the market. It’s a really cute piggy themed account that rates everything out 5 snouts! So in honour of her, I’m going to rate all of these snacks out of 5 snouts.
Hello everyone, as I am officially Well Old today, I thought I’d write a little birthday blog post! When I was about 15, I decided that no one over 32 was cool. 32 was officially the age where it was absolutely impossible to be cool… If I could give my younger self a cold hard stare I totally would. Who does she think she is, with her purple flared trousers and her lack of decent hair products… she wouldn’t even know cool if it hit her in the face.
Someone excellent once said to me “What about you makes you think you deserve to take up less space?” and my god, she’s right. I deserve to take up space! I deserve to love myself and my body. Following from the absolutely incredible series of talks about acceptance of your own body, from the Anti Diet Riot Club Weekender, I wanted to write down my thoughts and experiences of fatphobia and how the experts suggest we beat the stigma and start feeling more body positive!
A friend of mine gave me the chance to discuss something that affects so many of us without our knowledge. BRFBs or Body Focused Repetitive Behaviours can affect many of us who suffer from anxiety. So what do they feel like, and what can we do to overcome them? Who better to help us than someone who has been dealing with BRFBs for since her early teens! So let’s find out more…
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.
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.
