life :: unplanned

Vagabond - a person who wanders from place to place […] The unexpected things are the best right? That surprise holiday, that surprise family visit, that surprise best-friend-on-the-doorstep, even that "shall we go to the pub?" question. We waste so much energy on planning. You get yourself all busy up in your diary, jotting down…

year abroad :: emotion

A month in now. More than a month. And that just seems crazy. Raging hormones, slight homesickness and just general frustration at life have led me for the second time this week to sitting on a park bench crying. But, I have the best view. The bench overlooks a gorgeous old tree whose trunk is…

life :: self

Okay so, I should really be concentrating on getting things sorted for France...BUT there's a current topic floating around the media that I just have to talk about. I'm entitling this post 'self' because that's exactly what it's going to be about. I was watching Loose Women a month ago now - youthful programme I know…

love :: the greatest

One past experience has chance my outlook on love forever. I can't really say I was in love but who knows. Love is powerful and overcomes you, and makes you blind. You don't see how someone is crippling you until after a relationship ends."Your intelligence intimidates me" is a line from a guy that I will never…

love :: worthy

SELF-LOVEI realised something today: I get over things easily because I've learned to love myself. I am who I am, and it has take me years to be at peace with so many parts of myself, so now that I am, I can't just throw that peace to the ground and crumble. This self-love makes…

beauty :: graphic

Beauty was always a side-line to my love of fashion until I undertook the role of Fashion & Beauty Editor of SCAN. It opened my eyes to talking about something just as, if not even more, artistic than fashion.  Ever since I was little, I always loved doing my eyeshadow and that still continues to…

love :: rainbow

It's quite hard sometimes to be a "milennial" (despite being born in the nineties) and a Christian. It's challenging. Although as a society, we're a lot more accepting, we're also a lot more defensive yet on the attack at the same time. So, adding Christianity to this battle already can make muddling through the early years…

life :: new beginnings

You could say that with finishing second year, life has slowed down. But in no way is that a reality. Despite summer beginning, and my 20th birthday passing (the Friday just gone Thursday eek!), I still find myself busy. But not "busy" busy, you know that kind of busy when you think you're busy but…

life :: friendships

Since I've covered dating more than once, and a host of other topics, I thought why not discuss an important part of growing up: friendships.  I'm not going to focusing on 'making' friends, but rather friendships and what they mean to me, and what they could/should mean to you.  THEY ARE NOT EASY Friendships go…
