I always put off writing these kinds of blog posts because I feel like no one really cares for them. To be honest, they're more cathartic for me than interesting to anyone else but if this kind of post can help just one person not feel crappy about their creative outlets then I'll be happy. … Continue reading Being Create… it’s hard, y’all.

The year I completed 365 days of yoga
I feel like I talk about yoga a lot. Maybe I do. Maybe I don't and I'm just paranoid. The thing is, either people like talking about it or they really don't at all - which I get. Once you're on the yoga-boat it's hard to get off, even if you don't do it every … Continue reading The year I completed 365 days of yoga
My favourite body-positive accounts
Hello! Welcome back! It's been about two months since I blogged - the break was intentional because October and November are typically insane months for me and this year so no different. At all. With December being the month I try to chill out and do nothing I figured why not pick up the blog … Continue reading My favourite body-positive accounts
This time of year is generally the time of year I collapse with exhaustion [that's being dramatic, I basically just get really tired and want to hibernate] because I'm a workaholic. I mention this a lot and if you follow me on the social media's you're probably aware that I take on a lot of … Continue reading Overexerting myself

I've written about this kind of thing before, but it's sometimes important to reassess and re-confirm positive affirmations! my body, my journey It's hard not to look at other people … Continue reading 100 days of yoga!
Pushing through creative blockages!
Today I wanted to take a step back from frivolous posts so I could address 'real' things. I've taken a step back from blogging and writing recently but not because I wanted to, it was more like I felt like a door had been slammed in my face. I was hit by a pretty big … Continue reading Pushing through creative blockages!
If you clicked on this blog post because you already knew what this was - Hi! For everyone else this weird initialism might conjure one of two thoughts. The first; this sounds familiar, or the second; What? I have to be honest; the only reason I stumbled onto this subculture [I'd call it Internet Subculture … Continue reading ASMR…
Last night [Monday the 2nd October] I went to my very first drumming circle. It was... different. My friend recently found out there was a drumming circle in our town [which is totally up my street, figuratively and literally] which has been going for 5 years and so we decided we needed to go and … Continue reading Drumming Circle
Every now and then I have to break up the 'fun' posts with something a little more 'thoughtful', or else the name of this blog would be pointless! Today I just wanted to talk about the idea, or feeling, that life is a 'race' that we're all running and if you aren't keeping up … Continue reading The Race
Outfit of the day [Basic Sam] and note to self
My Blog Queen, The Dainty Squid, recently wrote a post which was a little note to self about body image and it really stuck with me. I've re-read it a few times because it's so simple and straight forward it makes me feel better. I'm an advocate for NOT striving to be thin or lose … Continue reading Outfit of the day [Basic Sam] and note to self
