The Abortion Debate: Is 2017 really the place for the 1967 UK Abortion Act?

Last month, I had an evening to myself (I’m as shocked as you) so I decided to peruse iPlayer for something to watch. I love a good documentary or anything based on true events, so when I saw Abortion on Trial pop up, I was instantly intrigued.

It’s a taboo subject. A subject that causes mass debate. Protests. Questionable behaviour from those that oppose the thought of a woman having a mind and controlling her own body. A subject that I know affects people close to me. View Post

Braving the stage

It’s that time of the week again, Throwback Thursday, so it seemed rather fitting when my Facebook memories reminded me of where I was just two years ago. I know many of you have heard this story, and perhaps even bored of me bringing it up, but braving the stage at The IFC really did have a lasting impact… View Post

Okay so October 2017 saw my first long haul flight, ever. Yes, ever. I have managed to make it to 27yrs old without suffering jet lag and more importantly avoiding using a plane toilet ? (if you know me, you know my aversion to public loos). 

Well I had to get over both of these on our recent trip to New York, which you can read all about over on my work blog.

So in all my excitement, I thought I’d give you a run down on the thoughts I had on my first long haul flight…

Happiness Is

Sometimes when we just aren’t in a good place mentally, it can really impact everything we do. The decisions we make. The way we speak to a partner or colleague. Even the smallest thing like feeling bloated, waking up with a headache or a lower-than-expected-bank-balance can set us off on the wrong foot in the morning, and boy do I know that feeling.

How do we overcome this?

We know all too well that when someone tells you to “cheer up!” when you’re in a particularly bad mood, the urge to shout back, “Oh it’s that simple is it? Why didn’t I think of that before?!” is all too strong. View Post

Process of elimination

Wow, what a hectic month I have had….! And it’s not just the Christmas shopping and festive planning that is taking  up my time, as I am sure many of you can sympathise!

Anyway…I plan to do a few blogs between now and Christmas, as I know some people find this season exceptionally difficult to keep focused…I always found this, but am hoping this year will be different!

I finished off last time telling you I was trying a new eating plan…
