In my last few posts, probably actually for the last few months, I have been hinting to how my mental health is not at 100% recently. Let us be real though and acknowledge that even when people look like they have it all together they are usually not mentally at 100% all of the time; […]
A week or so ago I found myself staring at my blog, pondering the photos I take for it and the content I produce. It wasn’t until then that I realised I haven’t done a personal post over here on so long. Sure the odd bit of my life makes it into snarky sub-clauses in […]
Slowly but surely I managed to get my blogging mojo back during 2017 and towards the end of the year I have managed to remain consistent with posting twice a week at the same time. Though sometimes I completed the post with only a minute to spare, it has been stressful at times but incredibly […]
