Mental Health: My Addictive

Mental Health: My Addictive Personality

I wanted to talk a bit more about my experience as I only touched on it very lightly in my previous post.

News Flash: Love Isn't A Fairytale

Growing up, and indeed as an adult actually, when you immerse yourself in the world of cinematic delight, you will find that any romantic stories climax with the end of the chase.

Why Body Shape Trends Need To

Why Body Shape Trends Need To Stop

It sounds silly when summarised in a paragraph like that but it's true. I was a self conscious teenager who found that fashion was geared to slim girls with low rise hipster jeans and crop tops.
