How To Blast A Job Interview

Job interviews are one of those frustrating facts of life that, unless we’re either really lucky or really unlucky, will experience a number of times in life.

Bye-bye Grease! Taking back my hair

Ever since I hit that tender age where you suddenly feel super self conscious, I have had this strong aversion to having greasy hair. Even now, a more confident adult, I still feel this (literally) sickening upset whenever I have greasy hair. I feel dirty, ugly and ashamed of myself. I know it doesn’t make … Continue reading Bye-bye Grease! Taking back my hair

Reclaiming your space: Beating messiness

I’ve promised to always be honest on here and, in all painful honesty, I am a messy person. I have a habit of being rather lazy and also to pass up tidying and cleaning in favour of more “productive” jobs. It isn’t good, it isn’t fun and it’s got to change. I am slowly starting … Continue reading Reclaiming your space: Beating messiness

How to have a safe Halloween!

Tattoos and Tattoo aftercare

As I mentioned in one of my recent posts, I have 3 tattoos that I love very much that all carry very strong meanings to me.  They’re important and I want to make sure they last well. A lot of people ask me “Wasn’t that really painful?!” Personally, if you are worried about pain, probably … Continue reading Tattoos and Tattoo aftercare
