Is It Ok To Be A Realist?

I am somebody who does like to dip their toe in the pool of optimism. Some things in life require optimism, hope and imagination. However, I am somewhat of a realist. I like to stay realistic about my expectations and situations that crop up in my life.


There is a common misconception that being a realist means you're disguising yourself as a pessimist. I don't that's relatively true, I think being a realist means you are good at managing your expectations but hold on to that hope that it will happen.

RapidBrow Eyebrow Enhancing Serum: A Review

I'm going through one of those phases, or if I'm being honest, a never ending phase, of hating one eyebrow more than the other. In my case, I despise more right one more than my left. My left one has a really nice shape to it and is easy to do when it comes to applying a brow pencil. The right one however, *heavy sigh* bring me shame. It looks like a baby caterpillar chasing it's mama (a Friends quote there). Utterly ridiculous. Anyhow...

How Nature Has Helped My Mental Health

That feeling of sitting or standing outside, closing your eyes and just breathing in that bit of fresh air - there's nothing like it. Nature does have its benefits for my mental health, as well as my physical health.


I never really contemplated how much nature has helped my mental health over the years. I always saw going outside as just something I did, not see it as something that would be so beneficial to my mental health and wellbeing. That walk around the block, that jog (I say jog, I use that term pretty loosely, it's more like a fast walk) in the park or a stroll on the beach or through the woods, that feeling of being outside to clear your head is a feeling like no other.

Why It's Ok To Not Have Your Sh*t Together In Your Late Twenties

I am officially in my late twenties. I'm 28 today. Maybe I reached my late twenties last year, but now I REALLY feel in my late twenties. I'm not feeling the thought of being an inch closer to reaching the big 30. I get the feeling that people are already itching to tell me that I'm entering the 30-40 bracket of my life.  


Remember when we were kids, when we used to think that by the time we reached 20, or even 18, we'd have our life together? I always thought I would get married in a castle wearing a Barbie style wedding dress, be a Mum to boy and a girl, own a cat/dog and live in a beautiful mansion with furniture from the Argos catalogue throughout. Ah, those days were innocent weren't they?!

8 Ways To Relax Productively

I know, surely relaxing means doing f*ck all and just lazing around eating a pack of Bourbon biscuits and binge watching the Queen's Gambit? Well, yes, that is true. But if you're a productive person like me, I like to find ways to relax productively.


A lot of us do lament being busy and oppose the idea of idolising being busy, but I am somebody who does love feeling and being active, especially now that I have started Kaftrio (another post for another day) and now I feel I can do anything!

40 Self Care Ideas For The Mind, Body & Soul

Taking that bit of time out for yourself and indulge in a little self care is so satisfying and a massive mood booster. No matter what you classify as self care in your daily routine, it just makes you feel so refreshed and rejuvenated when you practice self care. 


In recent times, I have pledged to practice self care more regularly and not just do it as and when I feel like it. Rather than saying I don't have enough time, I want to make the time to do it. For example, I like cleaning out my fridge. Yes, that is one of my weird self care habits. Problem?!
