Writing.

It feels as if you are trying to swallow the world but, as you open your mouth, so does the earth. Ouroboros. The feeling of wholeness. You write to feel whole, Even as you give pieces of yourself to the page. You write to feel pure, Even as you dirty the page with your thoughts….

Popped to Prague!

I recently got back from a quick trip to Prague! I went with a friend and we spent about three days there. It is so beautiful! All of the buildings are in different styles but similar pastel colouring so it all ties in together so nicely. Every street looks like it could be a film set….

Response to KATIE HOPKINS

Vultures.

I absolutely loved this article. It’s so original and sweet. Like just allowing a teenager to talk about herself, her problems, her likes and dislikes….

A Comprehensive Birthday List

First of all, an apology to any friends or family members reading this in the hopes that I had finally decided on what I wanted for my birthday. I mean, I have – but none of this can be purchased on Amazon. Soz. Again. A Personal Declutterer Not an actual job title (I don’t think??)…

History of Plus Size Fashion

Plus size fashion actually began in the late nineteenth/early twentieth century when ready to wear fashion became increasingly popular. Before then, clothes were hand made or professionally created to fit individual bodies. You’d hope that this meant that it wouldn’t matter what size you were but this did not stop society pressing the idea of an “ideal weight” on to…

Getting My History Fix

If you’re not a fan of delving into dusty books to learn more about history then I totally understand. Except that I don’t because my god that dusty book smell gives me LIFE.
