Month: February 2020

Feb Life Updates

For the past few months things have been really weird. Day to day stuff has been difficult and there has been a lot playing on loop in my mind. I thought I’d share a few ‘life update’ things and I’ll explain why as I go, so sit tight.



A Thought

No one is disposable.

We all leave tiny marks on the hearts of those that love us. We leave whispers of ourselves in the words that we write and the photographs we take. In the things that we say and the laughter that lingers long after we are gone.

Tangible and intangible.

Ghosts aren’t men in white sheets coming to haunt us. Ghosts are the last ‘I love you’s’ we utter. The last hug goodbye. They’re the memories that spring to mind whether we want them to or not. Ghosts are the plans we didn’t get to make.

And in that way, I think, we never truly leave, we’re never truly gone. We live timelessly in the hearts that we mark.

No one is disposable – you can’t erase love.

Valentine’s Day

I have always loved Valentine’s Day – whether I was single or in a relationship, it didn’t really matter; how can you not enjoy all the cutesy heart-themed decorations and treats? If someone wasn’t treating me I could always treat myself; with Lush Unicorn Horns, Valentine’s-themed brooches or Sonny Angels. Today is always a good day to express love – to yourself, your significant other and even friends and family. But I knew this year would be a little harder to find the usual enthusiasm and love the holiday usually elicits in me.


Snippets of Joy Jan-Feb 12th

Through the tough times I have been working extra-hard to find little snippets and moments of joy. It hasn’t always been easy but I have found if you look hard and work hard you can find something to be happy about even in your darkest moments. I thought I’d share a few things that brought me joy during January up until this point. I may make this a weekly or monthly thing because I feel it’s so important to appreciate the little things and it’s good to look back on! (more…)

Lush Valentines Haul 2020

If you have been following PLF for awhile, you’ll know that alongside Halloween, the Lush Valentines range is one of my most anticipated. All of the cutesy heart designs, the sugary-sweet scents and of course the Unicorn Horns make for a seriously exciting collection. Today I thought I’d share my 2020 haul with you ahead of the big day!



This evening as I sat nursing my swollen, recently tattooed hand I got on to thinking about the past couple of months, the past year and beyond. One of the things about my Instagram account is that I tend to document almost everything that life throws my way; whether good or bad. So scrolling through my feed can become a real walk down memory lane and a reminder just how quickly and seemingly randomly life can change.
