Mental Health & stuff

Recently there was an annual mental health day in Canada called Bell Let's Talk. For those who know anything about me you'll know I ain't Canadian but I have a fair few friends from the land of the Cannuck's and so I was made aware of the campaign to spread awareness for people who suffer … Continue reading Mental Health & stuff

Life changing documentary // The Minimalists

I've been changing my lifestyle for a while now - first it was eating. In my attempt to eat a cleaner diet I found my vegetarian ideals challenged by the documentary Cowspiracy and became a vegan. I'm still on the journey to cruelty free living and will focus on finding ethical clothing in 2017 but, all in … Continue reading Life changing documentary // The Minimalists

Body Image

It feels like it's been a while since I did a blog post about something 'real' rather than something frivolous and so here we are! I wanted to talk about body image because I have recently rewatched Meghan Tonjes's videos about body image and she recently released this new one: And let me tell you … Continue reading Body Image

The Wander Society // Book ‘review’

Despite being busy all week with moving into my new place I can't lie... I've not been too busy to read. I'm almost two books down in just a few days so GO ME! Having time to read is really important to me - I'm never without at least one book on the go and … Continue reading The Wander Society // Book ‘review’

Falling off the wagon

I did it. I fell off the wagon. Although I haven't broken any promises to myself regarding Yoga I was doing so well and practising every day though January to March. I then got ill at the start of April and what with all the stress of moving I neglected my body. Let me tell you. I … Continue reading Falling off the wagon

Going outside your comfort zone

I won't lie; I am terrible for staying curled up inside my bubble. Always walking the same routes, doing the same things, staying on the same trajectory. I think, for most people, that's a reality isn't it? That being said I have this love/hate relationship with doing things I don't normally do. When I say … Continue reading Going outside your comfort zone

The ‘F’ Word

Whatever you do don't ever use the 'F' word in front of me. The word I mean is FAT. Urgh. Even writing it makes me feel gross. I have this thing against it because, to me, fat is what you have not who you are in descriptive terms. When people use FAT as a put … Continue reading The ‘F’ Word

The art of cleaning

You know, me and cleaning are not the best of friends. I love clean things and clean places but I always find a reason to not clean. Netflix, for example; the perfect excuse to do nothing at all. Today I had to clean my car because I haven't done it in a million months and the dog … Continue reading The art of cleaning

Hit me with the Mantra, baby!

Have you ever been in a situation where you just thought to yourself 'I can get through this, in 24 hours this will be over'?  Pretty much every day I find myself thinking little phrases to help me through and it wasn't until this month that I realised I was using a convoluted form of … Continue reading Hit me with the Mantra, baby!

De-cluttering social media

  Hi, my name's Sam and I am a social media addict. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube. That's where I find I spend/waste most of my time because it's 2016 and why not? Except I find social media is quite draining. Particularly when you do what I do and you collect people. I tend to hit … Continue reading De-cluttering social media
