Nothing Like A Little Heartfelt Honesty….

(Trigger Warning: This post deals with my current, personal journey with depression, self-esteem and eating issues. If you feel it may trigger your own similar feelings, I’ll not be offended if you carry on walking past this post.)   Its been a very long time since I wrote a personal post. I did rationalise it […]

Since You’ve Been Gone…

I was going to put I’ve instead of You’ve given that would be the more factually correct version, however I would never not miss and opportunity to shoehorn a Kelly Clarkson lyric into a post.  I also feel like I should be saying ‘Its been x weeks since my last post’, like I should be […]

Between You And Me….

Writing this post is so incredibly hard, mainly because it involves bearing a bit of my soul and a part of me that I keep so incredibly well hidden. In fact, unlikely the majority of my posts where I write spell check and then post, this might just be the end product of a couple […]

A quick missive….

So, umm, yeah. This post, I’m sure, would be much longer and full of wonderfulness if I hadn’t been at work all weekend and then decided that I needed to spend about twenty minutes in the garage hunting for my winter clothes in the dying light after work this evening. Normally I don’t bother, but […]

Joining the Campaign for Clearer Sizing

So, you’ll remember from yesterday’s post that I was a bit miffed by Evans’ offerings and how it seemed like they’d de-sized recently, yes? Well, there’s a campaign set up by Retro Chick to try to get retailers to change the way they label clothes, and to get some uniformity to sizing. Which is well […]

A Collection of Thoughts….

So yeah, already pretty much failed on one of my 30 before 30….I did say I was going to post at least every couple of days, but oh well, my bad! Actually, being without flippant, my life has been a bit crazy mental while I’ve been dealing with another of my 30 before 30, namely […]

A list of things to be done before the big 3-0….

So it’s exactly 11 months to the day that I turn 30. Which actually is an odd co-incidence, as I’d planned to do this blog after reading this post from A Thrifty Mrs. It originally caught my eye because of the fact it was talking about long hair and the battle between cutting it and […]

Magically Stepping Out In Style…

It’s an obsession that started early. I remember one early trip to get my feet measured vividly….heading down to the basement of the Wheeler Gate store in Nottingham, there being a tv in the wall with a brightly coloured surround, dancing away to the Locomotion by Kylie Minogue while my mum tried to get me […]

Non Acceptance

Warning: this blog contains content that is regarding negative self-image, albeit a personal reflection. If you are the sort that doesn’t like to read anything that isn’t 100% positive, look away now. Comparison. Thats pretty much the bane of all our lives right? We look at ourselves and then we look at others, and then […]
