Celebrating Your Achievements

I would say that there is a fine line between confidence and arrogance. That fine line is called humility. However, the two words should not be confused with.

I'm one of those people who doesn't really share their achievements very much as I'm wary of coming across as arrogant and blowing my own trumpet. I'm all for celebrating everybody else's success bar my own, which is not on.

Trying To Embrace The Home Life

A lot of us are staring at four walls wondering when we are going to be able to step outside freely again. We're all either living with our parents, partners, spouses or flatmates and wondering how the hell we haven't gone ape shit at them over the way they suck a Cornetto.

Yes, being at home, it can suck sometimes. Not having that physical contact with your loved ones is tough and it's something I, as we all are, struggling with right now. As much as I am craving going outside and (let me just daydream about the outdoors life for a sec) and being fed up of staring at the same four walls so much that I can memorise the pattern in the wallpaper, I am going to try and embrace the new staying at home lifestyle we've had to conform to.

Six Books I've Read So Far In 2020

Ok, I know it may seem that it's taken me a hella of a long time to read six books as we're now in May, but I think because of my Grandad being ill and passing away at the start of the year, it took me a little longer than usual to get through reading six books, cause you know, priorities and that.

Anyway, I think I've just realised that this is my first book review on my blog in like EVER. Well, it's more than one book. I'm sure I'll get the hand of this book review lark eventually.

Talking About Your Mental Health Online - Should We?

My Mam and me were chatting about Facebook one evening, generally about the stuff that people post on there. She then happened to mention that one of her Facebook friends had posted about her mental health on one of her statuses, something my Mam thought was wrong. Something which I disagreed with. Something that I made her aware of is that I suffer with my mental health also.

Kegel Exercises: Why They're Important and My Personal Experience

Disclaimer - There are gifted items in this post. 
See the end of the post for more information.

Is there a stigma attached the words 'pelvic floor'? Even though we all have a pelvic floor, for some people, it can be a source of embarrassment.

As somebody who has had pelvic floor issues in the past because of my illness, I should know. I think a lot of people relate pelvic floor problems with the elderly. However, that isn't the case. It can be an awkward issue for younger people also. From pregnant women to people like myself who cough on a daily basis, it can be humiliating, especially when you're out in public and have an 'oops' moment because you necked your Diet Coke too quickly in the previous pub.

A Birthday Like No Other

Yes, it's my birthday today and I'm turning 27. What will I be doing to celebrate this fine occasion? Nothing.

But I'm ok with that. Purely because I can't exactly go to town and neck vodka and cranberry juice all night - I'll be doing that at home instead.

How To Gain More Of An Organic Following On Your Blog / Social Media

I received a DM from a new blogger the other day asking me how I gained so many followers on my blog and Bloglovin' and other social media outlets.

First of all, I'm not an expert and I'm not overly swimming with followers so I felt I could only offer what I have learnt over the years.

Gaining a social media following isn't easy by any means. The only way you can gain a good amount of followers is through your own hard work.

7 Lockdown Challenges / Ideas

Bored of lockdown? I feel ya.

I reached the point the other day where I tried on all of my bras (well, one at a time) and adjusted the straps that felt a little loose. The peak of boredom/insanity right there.

Away from bra strap adjusting, I've come to rely on social media to make me smile and bring me a little joy into my boredom.
