Hey guys! So I've decided to start a new "series" on my blog called 'Supportive Sundays' (Not really satisfied with that name.. Any suggestions welcome!). 

Supportive Sundays is going to based around mental illnesses. I'm hoping to get guest bloggers to talk about their experiences with mental health issues, we'll be give hope and coping skills to those currently struggling and hopefully informing those who don't have a mental illness, but knows someone that does, all about it and ways that they can help. 

To start off Supportive Sundays, I'm going to share my story of my struggle living with severe anxiety, depression, agoraphobia and emetophobia. I wrote the post you're about to read a couple of days ago and was really hesitant about posting it. It's pretty blunt and honest, so if you're uncomfortable with that, I'm letting you know now. I will be honest and say I left some things out that I'm just not comfortable with sharing at the moment. For the most part though, it covers just about everything. I haven't re-read it since I wrote it so I apologize if it's scatter brained or there are some mistakes. 


SUPPORTIVE SUNDAYS #1: MY STRUGGLE WITH ANXIETY, DEPRESSION,AGORAPHOBIA & EMETOPHOBIA



'What's in my purse?' tags on youtube are some of my favorite videos to watch, so I thought I'd do a blog version of it for you guys!  

We'll keep it short and sweet. 

↠ WHAT'S IN MY PURSE? ↞

Recently, no matter how many new items of clothing I get or how many things in my closet I have yet to wear, I always seem to gravitate toward these few bottoms. Doesn't matter if I just wore them yesterday or a few days before, I WILL WEAR THEM. 

1. My favorite pair of 'joggers'. I bought these from forever 21 a while ago, but for some reason they had stayed in my closet untouched for a few months.. Up until now of course. You can't see in the picture but they're cuffed up at the ankle!  They're really light, and airy so I'll definitely be wearing these over the summer.

It's finally summer and everyone's hair is being snipped. 

It seems 2014 is the year of cute pixies and short bobs. So many girls are taking the plunge and drastically chopping their locks and to be honest I couldn't be happier about it! 

I find it so uplifting and inspiring seeing women, epecially younger girls, break the stigma of short hair on females and realizing that our hair doesn't define us. 



Last night, I was sat in front of the mirror pinning my hair back with bobby pins to give the look of a faux cut, and I loved it so much. I'm so tempted to cut it.. And I mean why not, right? At the end of the day, it is just hair. It'll grow back. 

Here are some of my favorite short styles for this summer:

Any of you planning on chopping your locks for the summer? Let me know!

↠ MY FAVORITE SHORT HAIRSTYLES FOR SUMMER ↞

For most of my young teenage life I've suffered from acne, and even still now at 19, I deal with the occasional breakout.

I've been to a dermatologist and I've been prescribed creams etc. but either none have worked for me or I've just given up too fast because I was discouraged from seeing no progress..


↠ MY SKIN 'HOLY GRAILS' ↞

Hiiiiiiiiiiii! 

Ah, It feels so weird to be doing this again.. It's been soooo, so long since the last time. 

For those of you who didn't know, which I'm assuming is all of you that are reading this now, about a year or two ago I ran a blog with one of my friends. At the time, people seemed to really enjoy it and we had actually got a couple loyal readers, which was so crazy/exciting for us! It sucked though because at that time, we were both either at school/work and trying to juggle life at the same time and sadly, the blog just kind of took a back seat. It's been a while now since that blog has been taken down, but in the last recent months, the urge to start blogging again has been taking over my mind and I'm just like, why not?! It's summer and I don't have anything to do... Is there really a better time than now?

I'm still a bit rusty and new to the blogging game, but I'm so excited and I'm ready for everything! 

So here's to attempt two and (hopefully) more future blog post that people will enjoy! 

Talk soon.
