Three Years of Blogging: What I Have Loved

I've been so swamped with so much life admin and just life in general that I almost forgot that Lucy Mary is three years old!

Yes, I have owned a teeny miniscule of the online world for the past three years and have (hopefully) managed to put my personalised stamp on it. I feel extremely lucky to be doing this as a side hustle, once upon a time it was a hobby.

Blog Reads of October

How is it that we are days from dusting off our Halloween decorations and buying makeup to look our goriest best?! It's almost the end of October, Autumn is in full swing, the clocks are going back this weekend and the early nights await us.

The end of a month also means something else to me - another 'Blog Reads Of' edition! With the weather quickly turning cooler, it means me wrapping myself up like a cocoon in a blanket reading dozens of blog posts through Bloglovin' or Twitter blog threads.

I Took A Mini Break From Blogging and I'm Happy Again

I've been blogging for nearly three years no (how time flies) and I recently I realised that I have not had one single break from it. Three years of not putting my laptop down, not constantly thinking of new innovative ideas to improve my blog or not trying in vain to shoot some banging pictures for my blog posts.

The last couple of posts I've written and published on Lucy Mary were already sat in my drafts waiting to be posted. All I had to do was insert some okayish photo's before hitting the publish button. So in retrospect I haven't really written or created new content for almost a month now. My brain just went flat. I felt very uninspired and I just lost the spark for blogging. I knew that was a tell tale sign that I needed a much needed break from the blogging world.

What Constitutes As Being Brave?

Definition - showing no fear of dangerous or difficult things.

One thing I like to do now and again is take little adventures to myself. The confidence it gives me is beyond what I can even describe. That being said, when I've told people, people who know me well that I'm taking a trip to another city on my own, I always get the same reaction - "You're brave for doing that"

I Need Help: The Benefits of Speaking to a Psychologist

Those days when you feel nothing but sadness or when dark thoughts start creeping into your mind is a moment, for me personally, when I feel I need to get help or speak to someone. When you're feeling at your worst with your mental health, it takes serious guts to admit to yourself that you need to speak to someone as professional like a psychologist, counsellor or therapist.

Keeping It Au Naturale

Let me ask you something? When was the last time you posted a photo on your Instagram where you were fresh faced, makeup free, your hair was in disarray and you were wearing your scruffs? I don't think many people could answer that question. Or maybe it's a rhetorical one - it doesn't require an answer.

I'm somebody who likes to look my best. As much as applying makeup is time consuming, I love the confidence I feel when I wear makeup. Makeup is made to enhance our beauty, perfect any flaws we feel we may have. I always like to keep my hair in good condition, I wash it every three days and I style it with the straighteners or wave wand to make me look like a standard human being.
