Mix Tapes


Even though CDs are going out of fashion and it’s becoming increasingly hard to find a suitable player for them, I still love to make my own mix tapes. The first one I ever made was back in 2007, just over 10 years ago! It featured some terrible club songs and everything was a remix. To be honest, I didn’t…

Wrapping Up the Year: 2017


I started 2017 with great hope and optimism. There’s something about the New Year that brings such refreshing positivity. It’s like all the mistakes from last year are in the past and it’s a chance to begin again for the next year. Like a new slate. My plans, or resolutions as they were, included “ trying to be a better person,…

Living Without A Mental Illness


“Mental Illness” is a term I hear almost every day. Whether it be on twitter, a blog post or even coming up in conversation with my friends. I straight a way think of depression and anxiety but of course this umbrella term covers a whole range of things that plague the world. It is everywhere. And it has always been…

An Existential Crisis


It crept up on me like the way summer turns to winter. Slowly overtime and then all of a sudden. Except it was more like a growing bacteria or fungi, something you wish wasn’t happening and often don’t even know that it is happening until it’s too late. Gradually, I began to feel lost. I was floating and not in…

I Have A Voice, I Will Be Heard


“You’re so quiet”  “You’re so shy!”  “Can you just say something?”  “Is something wrong?Are you alright?” I heard these countless times. While you may think being called shy or quiet is a good thing. Perhaps even a compliment. To me it was as if someone was telling me how ugly I am, how fat I am. You’re so quiet. You’re…

Poetry: The Last Goodbye


I first began to read poetry in school. Well actually if you count nursery rhymes as a sort of poetry then perhaps I’ve been reading it my whole life. In school though I’ve come across poems that I love, that I found a deep connection with, even though the writer is a stranger to me, somehow their words speak sense.…

April Book Reviews


Now I know the world believes it is May, but let’s say for the sake of this post that it is still April ( and so that I don’t have to re-edit the above image).  I was technically supposed to have these reviews written and published in March but you know me, I am a total disarray of a blogger.…

Blogging Struggles


Everyone wants their blog to be a success. Perhaps you’re not interested in the amount of followers you have or the page views on your latest post but I’m almost certain that you don’t blog with the intention of nobody reading it. If that were the case then you should have bought a diary and not a domain. But success…

How To Make Your Perfect Bucket List


What is a Bucket List? To me, a bucket list is something everyone should have. It is either a physical or virtual list of things a person wants to do before they die. Or according to google: I wrote my first Bucket List when I was about 15. Perhaps I was a bit young to be thinking about death. Or…

Female Role Models


Last Wednesday was International Women’s day. Women, Men and Children marched on the streets all over the world. It was a day where many women striked in protest to the economic inequality, prejudice and insecurity faced by women in the workplace. In Ireland there was also a focus on striking to repeal the 8th ( if you want to know…
