Friendships make our world go round just a little bit easier. A tough breakup, fighting with your family, work woes...your friends can be what see you through. Friends dry your tears when you cry, hype you up when you're losing self belief, pick you up when you (metaphorically) fall, laugh when you (literally) fall....Through the… Continue reading Toxic Friendships…and how to end them
Hey friends, hope you're all well. Anybody else slowly melting from this crazy heatwave we've got going in the UK?! I have some life news this week - I’ve just started a new job!

In my late teens/early twenties I was THE Queen of procrastination. I was so bad I once wrote a whole University essay the night before it was due because I'd put it off that long.

The best way that I can describe adulthood is to remember what it was like coming home from a night out, several vodkas in, trying to get to your bedroom in the pitch black without waking the house up. Adulthood is making decisions without full vision, taking a best guess and hoping for a positive… Continue reading Are We All Lost Stars?
I'm going to go out on a limb here and say we've all been there - feeling like you're experiencing disappointment after disappointment. Having a run of bad luck, like the world isn't on your side or you're taking one step forward and, without fail, two steps back? I know I have.
