I cried in my car as we said our final goodbyes. (more…)
Month: January 2020
In a year of losses the hardest thing for me to let go of was hope. To feel as if there was none – I was resigned to keep losing and keep hurting forever. (more…)
After eight days of crying and asking myself questions I could not find answers to I feel weak. I must have walked miles of damp pavement, smoked hundreds of cigarettes that soured in my mouth. I feel diminished. (more…)
I wrote a letter today, one that I will never send. (more…)
Whenever life feels a little too heavy I take a walk. It has always been the way. Getting outside, breathing lungfuls of fresh air and stretching my legs reminds me that I’m alive. And sometimes, that’s just enough.
On New Years Eve my boyfriend and I went to our favourite pizza place – Voodoo Rays, and then on to a couple of quiet pubs to neck drinks and make each other laugh. We ate all the pizza, drank all the drinks and danced at home to a really weird playlist of mediocre music from the past decade. It honestly was the best way to see in 2020 and wave goodbye to the absolute horror-show of the past year. Nothing screams fresh start quite like a Hot Mix 5 and a badly-made bourbon sours with the best friend and boyfriend you could ever wish for.
Naturally when we woke up on the 1st of January we were feeling a little worse for wear. Nursing hangovers and strangely aching muscles (I taught him how to slut drop and I think that was a little more exercise than we’re both used to lately) we armed ourselves with cameras and set off in to the grey morning in search of birds, wildlife and fresh air.
It has been a bit quiet on the blog this past festive season. Usually in the run up to the big day I’d have posted a big Lush Christmas haul and review – however this year I didn’t try a single new product! Instead I exercised some willpower (read: I had to spend my money on Christmas presents for other people!) Instead I did something that screams logic (which is a pretty new concept for me, let’s be honest) and I waited for the Boxing Day sales to grab some half-priced bargains! Today I thought I’d share that haul with you, alongside a few other bits I was kindly gifted for Christmas. As the season has already passed and many of these products are no longer on the shelves, I will not be including prices or reviewing the sets/products as such- just giving a general overview and my thoughts. Disclaimers done, let’s get in to it!
