Pimples, stretch marks and scars – what’s under the filter

’ve wanted to talk about this topic for a while because I feel like it’s so important and it’s something that hits quite close to home for me. Our response to these things that are perfectly normal and part of our bodies/us can have such a detrimental effect on our mental health and our general attitude towards ourselves. Not to mention the damaging impact the opinions of others can have … That’s why today I want to really talk about what’s under the filter – the pimples, skin problems, stretch marks, scars, that little bit of extra insulation, and all the other things we don’t like about our bodies but are pretty normal to have.

8 in 1 blogging awards post!! Part one

My mind is blown because I’ve been nominated for more blogging awards!! I’ve been celebrating the whole week – so thank you so much everyone for nominating me and the constant support. Today, because doing all the awards at once or individually is a bit much, I’m doing 3 of the awards in this post. I hope you enjoy reading my answers to everyone’s questions and congrats to all my nominations!!

A week of baking adventures

The menu this week included macaroons (two different flavours), chocolate croissants, or pain au chocolat to be technically correct and a koi fish pond cake, with a jelly centre. Sounds scary and complicated? Oh believe me it was – but it was still lots of fun, so I’m going to break down each one and just share a little story of how the making went. 😊 I hope you enjoy xx

June Book Reviews

The bookworm in me has officially been resuscitated. I’ve always been a voracious reader and loved nothing more than to snuggle up in an oversized hoodie with a cup of tea and a book (I can’t believe how delightfully British that sounds – guess I chose the right location for uni huh?). In this post I dive into reviewing four of the books I read this month – I hope you enjoy it xx
