I Hate Being Called...

...cute. 


It's something I get called quite often and I'm just not a fan of it. Cute is something you call a puppy, a kitten, something pink and fluffy or a baby, not a grown woman. I think the reason I hate (I know hate is a strong word) it so much is that I've been called it so many times on Instagram posts and in life that it's started to get on my nerves. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the compliment and the sentiment behind it, it's so kind of people to call me something nice, but it's just not my fave word anymore!


I don't know why, I find being called cute more of an insult than a compliment these days. I understand why people call me cute, I have the facial features of a 12-year-old, I'm small at only 5ft 3 and I have chipmunk cheeks that would make Chip and Dale proud. Maybe that makes up to being called cute? Who knows. In the beginning, I didn't mind being called cute as it was quite sweet that people saw me in that way. Now I'm 27, I just don't find it a compliment so much.

My Current Exercise Routine

I can take one positive of being in lockdown - I have gained a better and more well structured exercise routine. Before the pandemic, I was doing the same routine everyday and it was becoming very monotonous. With the extra time I (as well as everybody else) was given when lockdown commenced, I decided to test what I could do to make my exercise routine a little, well, less monotonous. 


I didn't want to be in the position of completing the same workouts everyday on YouTube. It worked for a little while, but it got to a point where I wasn't feeling any real benefits. When you feel like that about your exercise schedule, you know its time for a change.

Tampons vs Pads: Which Are Better?

*This post has PR Samples included. Please read the end of the post for more details.



I still remember the day when I learnt about pads and periods. It was a special class for the Year 6 girls and the nurse came in to talk to us about periods and what products we could use during, as she said "that special time of the month" - nah love, there's nothing special about "the time of the month" - unless I was pissing money and not blood, than yeah, it's special all the f**king way.

Why You Should Wear Scrunchies

Surely I'm not the only person to have noticed the scrunchie trend?


Scrunchies have made an iconic comeback in recent weeks. I remember them being worn by some many girls in my class and the scrunchies were always co-ordinated with their school uniform. If you wore a red gingham dress, a gingham scrunchie had to be worn with it. Ah, the good days.

Facebook - Our First Taste Of Social Media

Ah, Facebook. The first time most of us (particularly people around my age - 27) had our first taster of what social media would be like. Facebook was THE website everyone wanted to create a profile on in 2008/2009. After MSN, Facebook was the next thing I would check to see if any of my school friends had updated their status. Facebook allowed us to connect with so many people in our local town/city, even beyond that.


Fast forward to 2020. Well, Facebook is not seen as everybody's favourite app. I think it's safe to say it's caused us some grief one way or another over the years. Those direct/indirect status at someone, the arguments in the comments section and being pissed off at Sandra next door for lighting fireworks at 1am and broadcasting it on her profile. I think the only reason I use Facebook now is to check for any gossip and find out who's having a baby. moving into a new house or getting engaged/married.

Perfecting My Skincare With PMD

*This post features a PR sample. See the end of the post for more details. 



I've always been quite airy fairy when it comes to my skincare and establishing a routine. I've only recently put my stamp on a skincare routine that really works well for me and one that benefits my skin and it's complexion.


Nowadays, anything that will help my skin and give it the nourishment it needs and to stop the wrinkle process from progressing quicker than it should, I am all for!

Charities That Are Special To Me

All charities are wonderful organisations and are worth donating to if you are able to afford to.


We all support different charities in our lives. Some are supported because you believe in the work they're trying to achieve and some you support because they have a special place in your heart and some because a certain charities we can relate to on a personal level eg an illness or traumatic event. Today is International Day of Charity, a day to highlight the charities that mean so much to us individually.
