A Second Chance To Make A First Impression

My second time uploading this because no one seems to like an introduction! (*Cue introductory moody af facial expression ) I know breaking the ice is awkward but let's just make a start on finding the chisel, eh? What's the blog about?: A lifestyle blog intertwined with a few off topic rants and the occasional... Continue Reading →

Poem: Climate Change

  My limbs gnarl, sap suffocates my lungs as I gasp for another breath of the smog. I’m losing my fight for life. For centuries I have supplied oxygen to your veins, now you remove it from mine? In times before you uprooted me, and spoiled the very soil I laid upon. Now you turn... Continue Reading →

Why Is Poetry So Enchanting?

From ‘Tyger Tyger, burning bright….’ to ‘I wandered lonely as a cloud……’ somehow words have the power to capture the emotion of the poet and freeze it in time. To evoke an emotion in the reader that may last a lifetime. Why is this so? Why doesn’t it happen when we’re reading the bus timetable... Continue Reading →

Poem: Disability

  Disability It's all about perspective. To you, I'm Dissed. Disadvantaged. Dismissed, before I even get a chance to.   Whether I'm 'weak' in the mind, Or 'weak' at the knees. Your mind's made up, Before I even get a chance to plead.   You judge me on appearances. Refuse to look beyond my disability.... Continue Reading →

The Psychology of Value – Culture

Carrying on from yesterday’s post, I noted how this concept of value stems from our childhoods. How we internally form an attachment to particular items we deem as ‘ours’  from a young age. Yet when comparing this globally, there are certain cultures where regardless of age, this trend does not appear. For example in a... Continue Reading →

The Psychology of Value

What do you think is more valuable, the price of these rings in the picture, or, the relationship symbolised by them? No rush to answer! How about the question below instead, as a continuation from yesterday's post:   If I gifted you a Swiss chocolate bar to begin with then a few moments later asked... Continue Reading →

Peanuts To A Monkey

They say religion is used to control the masses when really the truth is that it’s money. We give value to pieces of paper and metal, to invisible numbers forever changing in our online accounts. As humans, as a society, we have given value to something which if you really think about it is valueless.... Continue Reading →

Stress: The Real SERIAL Killer

According to the American Psychological Association, chronic stress is linked to the six leading causes of death: heart disease, cancer, lung ailments, accidents, cirrhosis of the liver and suicide.   The link between mind and body is far deeper than we may have realised. You only have to listen to Ted’s Radio Hour episode entitled... Continue Reading →

I’m Making A Radio Show

If ever there was a time I was more nervous, it would have to have been the day I mixed colours with whites while doing the clothes washing. But only once, and only then! *Mum forgive me! But why am I so nervous about making a radio show? And more importantly, why exactly am I... Continue Reading →

Quantity Over Quality

I wouldn’t blame you for thinking I’d somehow dropped off the face of the Earth in the last month or so. Eating copious amounts of junk food while watching documentaries on how paintbrushes and heavy-duty bin bags are made has that effect on you. You just drift away from life’s priorities like a plank of... Continue Reading →

Poem: I Didn’t Believe

They say the aim is to make others believe in you. But if I couldn't believe in myself, Then there was no way of making either true.  For years I would beg, I would plead, To just let out my potential and abilities. To let them free to grow and to weave, Into something that... Continue Reading →

Poem: Trust

Trust is like trying to catch a spawning salmon in a freshly flowing river. You catch it! Then all too soon it slips from your tiny grasp. Whether it's trusting others or trusting yourself. Trust never seems to want to last.   Are we blinded by bullsh*t or beauty? All we need is for someone... Continue Reading →

Haiku Time!

How do you feel now? That I am no longer here. Do you feel....freedom? I close my eyes tight. Yet I still can't erase you. From my dreams at night.   Sugar - sickly sticks Sweet sensory sensations May it never end.

The Most Bizarre Home Remedies

Currently I have this massive blind pimple on my forehead that could rival any set of antlers on a prime young stag. Ofcourse this is the week I have work experience with a nice little editorial name and an interview gig at the weekend. So no better time for acne to make an unwanted appearance...

Poem: Brixton

Street stalls stand tall, As the merchants make convo with strangers. Fresh flowers flush the air, Their sweet notes still linger.   Food - of all shapes and sizes, A feast for my very eyes. Offering food for thought as to what Else comes from such places of mystery and surprise.   The faces are... Continue Reading →
