living in a nostalgic wonderland

I’ve always been a memory hoarder. The kind of person who insisted that, in the case of a burning house fire, photo albums would be the first thing I’d save. Growing up, I found relishing in memories to be a source of comfort. A connection to my identity. An interesting comparison of then vs now. …

the honeymoon stage in paris

Ah, the honeymoon stage. It preys on new couples, weaving itself in sugar coating around the arms of unsuspecting lovers. When first kisses transition to second and thirds and you’re filled with insatiable giddiness, it’s official: you’re firmly in the grasp of *the honeymoon stage.* With its sneaky wistful charm, you soon find yourself serenaded …

a love letter to heartbreak

Dear Heartbreak, I thought I had first met you at the tender age of 14 upon losing my first ever-bf after 1 month. Turns out that that I had just met your kinder friend, Sadness. (We can now acknowledge that year 8 relationships didn’t mean shit). Instead, you waited until later on to introduce yourself …

being your own bae on valentine’s day

I’ve never really been someone who cared for Valentine’s Day, even before I was single, but I’m aware that some single people are feelin some type of way about being alone today of all days. Let me start off by stating the obvious: it’s not that deep. Whilst I’m not trying to be cold-hearted, I …

2017: the year of goodbyes

Being the sentimental soul I am, there are few things that make me as emotionally nostalgic and reflective as endings (y’all know how much self-reflection is my fave past-time). No matter what it is, I find leaving things behind a very daunting and difficult task. It’s almost as if all of these little pieces of …

leaving comfort zones in 2017

Ah, the comfort zone. You are what a cup of tea is to the soul on a brisk winter’s evening. You’re exactly what you say you are. You’re comfortable. And whilst cosy memories of cusping a hot drink are ever so pleasant, I gotta tell ya Mr. Comfort Zone… you’re a little boring. Now, don’t …

why do we self-sabotage?

I’m beginning to learn that blogging ain’t an easy ride. Being a particularly self-critical person, I seem to end up in a repetitive cycle of either being too busy to write when I have blog post ideas, or finding free time, but not being able to find the words to start writing. I think many …

dealing with change

Goodness me, it’s been a while since I last blogged. So get ready for some word-vomit that probably won’t make sense once I proofread it. It’s been a roller-coaster few months, to say the least, and blogging has pretty much taken the back seat. In fact, blogging is not the only thing that I’ve come …

cloudy days (metaphorically and literally)

Recently I’ve been working on a few blog posts, writing about all things to do with that good ol’ self-empowerment type jazz – from battling self-doubt to solo-travelling. But it hasn’t felt like the right time to post any of them. And there’s a few reasons for that which I guess I’ve been avoiding, but …
