As lockdown eases, I am enjoying getting back into the countryside and seeing some of the beautiful sites in the UK. The National Trust has been a big part of this. As a member, the opportunity to visit sites and support the organisation during tough times means a lot. The National Trust has been a part of life since I was a baby, so I wanted to reflect on my time as a member and show that no matter your age, the National Trust can benefit you no matter who you are.

Something that has struck me during lockdown is the amount of productivity advice appearing across the media. It is understandable too. When you spend lots of time at home, the temptation to stay in your pyjamas and binge-watch TV shows all day is real.

If we cast our minds back to the beginning of the month though, you may recall me wanting to do a bullet journal layout based on a certain favourite TV show of mine. Yes, that’s right. April 2020 is the month of the Friends themed bullet journal setup. Read more
March 2020 marks a year since I have been living with Crohn’s disease. Well, I probably had it for longer, but it decided to make its presence known a year ago. It has definitely been a learning curve since my diagnosis and I am still learning now. There have been many ups and downs, and the battle with Crohn’s is far from over. Something I do know though, is that there are lots of myths and confusion surrounding IBD. Here’s my take on some of the common misconceptions about IBD and hopefully provide some clarity from my perspective. Read more
Hello there! It’s been a while since I last wrote a blog post, which was not my intention.
Then again, I think we can all agree that 2020 has not gone to plan for any of us.
I felt like before I could publish any other ‘normal’ posts, I wanted to write about my feelings. Read more
Happy March everyone! Various negative events have filled the headlines recently, not to mention the weekend storms February brought us. I’m sure we all need some springtime positivity.
