We Need to Talk About Clean Eating.

You might wonder why this is an issue for me. Why the sight of these "all raw" "all vegan" or "all sugar-free" books rung like nails on a chalkboard. They promote nutrition, right? Wellness? You know, all that body positive, self love that is clearly so important?

To the People Who Try to Keep You Small.

Our Past Does Not Define Us

We do not have to live life by the hand it dealt us. No, we choose our own path and say, "This is the life I'm going to live and this is the person I'm going to be... and I'm damned if anything is going to change that."

Writing Therapy.

Throughout my life, writing has always been a fundamental mechanism to pull me out of the darker times. It's something about being able to write down the words that you struggle to say out loud; it's like the world's cheapest therapy.

The Importance of Finding Your Tribe

I always thought of myself as an incredibly independent person. And I am - to a certain extent. I moved out of my home city at 18, I funded my way through University and a few months ago I packed my bags and emigrated to Italy.

It's Time We Start Being Kinder to Ourselves

Most of us can probably pinpoint the moment we stepped out of the blissfully unaware bubble to the self deprecating one. When nothing we do is quite good enough; when we struggle to celebrate our successes, constantly craving more.

Feeling the Fear but Doing It Anyway

The catastrophic collapse happened for me in summer last year. After a week staying with my boyfriend's parents, he proceeded to tell me he didn't love me any more on the train home. Such a nice guy, right?
