48 hours in Paris.

Paris, you did not disappoint. Okay, maybe you did, but only with regards to the weather. I did not expect it to be colder than London?! I should've checked the weather beforehand. *duh* But it wasn't just cold on Saturday- it was raining too! I would've loved to share Paris by night with you but... Continue Reading →

Paris, j’arrive.

As if I didn't already have enough to worry about (flying on Saturday), I'm trying to figure out how to pack my whole wardrobe into a carry-on. 😥 I like to have it and not need it as opposed to, needing it and not having it- makes sense right? With that mentality it's no wonder... Continue Reading →

New Year. Better Me.

2017. I want to say it wasn't a good year but I think a truer statement would be, it didn't end well. I started the year on leave from work for my depression and I am happy that I can say I am definitely in a better place mentally. Every day isn't a good day... Continue Reading →


Since my last post I’ve had a few great days. My dad stayed with me for three weeks and it was so good to have him here. We finally had a face to face conversation about my depression and I tried my best to explain it. I’m not sure if I did a good job... Continue Reading →

A partner who: -didn't let you go out with your girls on Friday night for drinks -wouldn't let you leave the house for a simple walk in the park -stopped you from doing all your favourite hobbies -wouldn't let you go to the gym to...

Shakira Shakera

*in the tune of Shakira's "Hips Don't Lie"* It's slightly annoying but do you know how many times I (Shakera too) have smiled through someone singing "Shakira Shakira" and acted like this hasn't happened a million times? A few too many. Last week it was all about Carnival and now it's Girls' Day Out. A... Continue Reading →


I've got some explaining to do! It feels like forever since I've written a blog post, did you miss me? Well I'm back! With so much to share.  About three and a half weeks ago I decided to start treating my depression with antidepressants. I've battled with taking medication for my depression for some time...

I started this post three months ago, just after Aaron Hernandez committed suicide. I decided against posting on the topic but I still kept it in my drafts in the event that I would be strong enough to share this story. A very unconventional post but I'm allowed to write whatever feels right, and it feels...

16 & Pregnant.

I can still recall every moment leading up to the second that I gave birth to Kiara. I met my daughter's dad when I was in third form and on my way home from school one evening. Little did I know he'd later become my 'high school sweetheart'. I never had a 'serious' boyfriend before... Continue Reading →
