I woke up this morning in a bit of a low mood. I curled up on the sofa and watched ‘To The Bone’ on Netflix which made me even sadder. Not the best idea? I decided to throw on some makeup and take a walk to Tesco. Mainly just to get out of the house. I enjoy applying makeup when I’ve got loads of time, so I thought I’d try a smokey eye. One thing led to another and I let go of my feelings all over my face. I’m not a makeup artist. I love makeup, I always have, but I wouldn’t say I’m anyRead More →

I’ve been sat here for a good hour trying to write a blog. I’ve thought of four different topics, stared at the screen for minutes on end and ate way too many mini poppadoms without even thinking about it through sheer frustration.

I'm no longer ashamed of my dark thoughts and actually, the acceptance of my dark side has helped the bright side shine more frequently and for longer.

Deciding on a topic to write about today wasn’t easy. In the back of my head, I’ve wanted to address the Chester Bennington suicide since it happened, but I also wasn’t sure if going there would be hard. Writing about frivolous topics is easier, that’s for sure. But my blog started off as a way of expressing myself through out depression and anxiety. It allowed me to get to know myself better, while also leaving the door open for the rest of the world. That connection was important to me. Darkness never truly leaves.
