How I learned to love my stomach

I’m sure I can’t be the only girl out there who has always had a “thing” about their stomach. For as long as I can remember, it’s always been the part of my body that I am most uncomfortable with – avoiding getting it out at all costs, braving a bikini on holiday and spending the whole day sucking in my belly and comparing myself to other girls on the beach, telling myself I’m “too…


Why we all need to talk more about mental health

I believe – and I don’t know if this will shock you or not – that everyone should see a therapist. Seriously. Everyone. The craziest thing about that opinion, is that it still feels kind of taboo. I still don’t really know while typing it how it will make people feel, if it will shock some, offend some, or just freak some the f*ck out. And that seems pretty ridiculous, in this day and age,…


Beat the Fear of Solo Travel

   Solo travel. It’s something that scares a lot of people. And I totally understand why. Arriving somewhere on your own, when you don’t know the place or anyone there, and having to figure it all out by yourself!

And I get it, I used to think exactly the same. I thought “I hate resorts, I hate travelling to a place and not having the time to properly see it”, or I assumed the people who go on cruises wouldn’t be my kind…


How Millennials Could Change the World

Sometimes I think about what a younger me would think if she could see me now. The insecure 15 year-old girl who never felt like she fitted in because she saw the world differently from other people and couldn’t find her tribe. The 19 year-old who dreamed of adventures and poetry and wild romances and how she’d travel the world but was pretty sure those kind of lives only happened in books, or in her…


Time for some TLC

Over the last year, I’ve spent a whole lot of time on myself. I’ve done more self-work, spent more time alone and learnt more about myself than I think I ever have in my life. I’m not going to lie, it’s been pretty hard work. Sometimes it’s been lonely, sometimes it’s been tough, but what I’ve got out of it has been so worth it. I didn’t realise how lost I was until I started…
