Reflection

Hi, I hope you’re having a lovely week 🙂 After seeing so many wonderful posts about body positivity lately, I’ve decided to add to the positive vibes currently sweeping through the ether, by writing my views on portrait photography.

On the Importance of Self-Care

Heyy, hope you’re well 🙂 Self-care sounds so indulgent, like it’s some sort of ethereal gift allowed only on special occasions – well, that’s what it seems to me anyway. I take care of my personal hygiene (perhaps a little too much, given my OCD for cleanliness), exercise, eat as healthily as I can andContinue reading “On the Importance of Self-Care”

About the Benefits of Reading

Heyy 🙂 Here’s a revived blog post from an old page I created years ago. It feels especially relevant to what we’re going through right now, having to stay in to stay safe from this COVID-19 pandemic. The brilliance of being able to enjoy escapism through some cleverly-styled words printed on the pages of aContinue reading “About the Benefits of Reading”

A Revival of Reviews

An Emetophobic Review

Hello Fellow Emetophobia Suffers 🙂 Following is a list I’ve compiled that I am hoping to continue to update as and when I can.

About Dog Walking

Dog walking isn’t only essential for your dog’s welfare, but in my opinion, it’s essential for my welfare too. As the entire world seems to be on lock-down, human interaction is being kept to a minimum.

About Sheep

Heyy Ewe! Thought it might be nice to write a blog post about sheep – the underrated heroes of the British countryside.

About The Pandemic

Another grey day here in exotic South Wales 🙂 Though a new day brings with it further panic and confusion about the dreaded COVID-19 outbreak, a.k.a ‘Coronavirus’.
