6 Months As A Vegetarian – Update

6 Months As A Vegetarian – Update

This title is a little mis-leading… I’ve actually been vegetarian for around 8-months now, but it’s taken me a little while to actually knuckle down and write this (quelle surprise!), so forgive my shoddiness and allow me a little leeway this time…

How I Learnt To Love Myself

How I Learnt To Love Myself

 

If you’ve been on social media today, you may well have seen various references to the fact that today is National Selfie Day. (Yes, there is a day for seemingly everything!) Brands are using it to promote their wares, influencers are sharing perfectly poised images of themselves, and the rest of us regular Joe’s and Josephine’s are warily uploading photos of our faces and hoping people don’t think we’re being narcissistic (or, alternatively, not uploading a picture for that exact reason).

 

But, is embracing your own image and uploading a picture of your face to the internet really narcissistic, or do we just find ourselves in a world where self-love is so frowned upon that any sign of appreciation of ourselves is chalked up as a negative?

 

This is something I’ve been thinking about for a while now, and today seems like the perfect time to talk about it.

We are living in a world now that is much more aware of what we are putting in our bodies. Organic produce is on the rise, veganism has blown up in the past few months (there’s now more vegans in the UK than there are ginger people!) and our understanding of all the additional nasty bits and pieces that find their way into our food and drink is at an all time high. But did you know that a lot of the pet food available on the market is also full of junk? I discovered a few years ago how bad some of the more well-known pet food brand names are when you get down to the nitty gritty and, since then, I’ve actively looked for more health conscious options to feed my menagerie.

My Top Tips For Clearing Debt

My Top Tips For Clearing Debt

 

Money. It’s the bane of most people’s lives, isn’t it? There’s never enough of it, there’s seemingly no correlation between our wages and the cost of living, and if we want to have fun or spoil the people we love, there’s always a cost involved. With so many of us living pay cheque to pay cheque it’s easy to see how so many end up borrowing money and running up debt – I did when I was in 20’s and I wrote about my battle to beat my financial demons extensively on this here blog.

The Seven Words I’ll Never Forget: “Now Go And Have A Good Life”

The Seven Words I’ll Never Forget: “Now Go And Have A Good Life”

 

I don’t know how to start this post. Y’know when something is so emotionally overwhelming that you don’t quite know how to coherently put it into words? That’s me right now. So, I guess I’ll just go ahead and say it – I’m now officially considered not to have Cancer anymore. I’m all clear. I’ve been discharged.
