This is a post on my second blogiversary. Simple? Well literally speaking yes, but the backstory is a tad bit more complex than that. But let’s not get into that just yet. Last year, I had lots of ideas round this time – my first blogiversary – and wrote two posts about the celebration: My 1st Year of Blogging in Numbers and What I’ve Learnt during my First Year of Blogging. It was, for me, all sunshine and rainbows because look for far I’d come! From very few views to hundreds of them every month!

This year round, I decided to take a slightly different route.

Met Gala 2018

First Monday of May is always the most stellar night of the year in the fashion world. The Met Gala, otherwise known to us average Janes and Joes as the most fashionable night of the year, did not disappoint. The exhibition this year was called “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination”.

Since I’m no expert, I will just gush and praise my favourite outfits from last night. And there were plenty of them, just so you know. The list below is just my personal opinion, remember we don’t all have to like all the same things so be nice! 🙂

Mental Health Awareness Month 2018

I had so many things to do in April and this first week of May, it completely slipped my mind that it’s mental health awareness month. You may be a tiny bit aware of how important May is to me, and it is not just because of my very open and very public struggle with mental health illnesses.

my blog is

First thing’s first… my blog is turning TWO YEARS OLD this month! The blog that has helped so many of you beautiful people with your struggles and in return gave ME hope. I am so proud of keeping this up for this long. To be honest, there were times where I wanted to give up altogether.

However, having many people contacting me here or on my Facebook page about how much I’ve helped them get through their problems by sharing my own, and also asking for more advice and about my treatment and therapy, which brings me to the next point!

May will mark the last (!!!) therapy session with my psychiatrist after 2+ years. He has been my greatest helper in all of this, up there next to my mum, boyfriend, best friend and YOU GUYS! Yes, you reading this, you have helped me, because you kept me going for the past 2 years. So thank you all so much for being there for me!

the future.png

It looks bright, big and beautiful. Later this month I will be announcing something very big happening in mid-June in my home country and it involves yours truly! I wasn’t given a lot of details as of yet but I will for sure let you know because ALL LOCALS will be able to attend this event so wa-hey!


Below you will find mental health-related posts from my blog for your own perusal. Make sure you read them with an open mind and heart. Love to all!
