  • Some awkward posing. 🙈 .
.
.

You know, that's how I am actually. Way too awkward, way too clumsy, way too messy. Over-sentimental, over-enthusiastic, over-loving. That's exactly how I am.

And I used to think that it's the wrong way to live. That it's the wrong way to be. Even now, at times, when I regret being kicked hard by some circumstances, when I regret being involved with certain people, I still think the same. Only at times.

But then, I came to ask myself, one day ~ What Is The Right Way To Be?

I mean is there a rules book to abide by? An instruction manual? On how much is too much? I mean it's us after all, who draw the line somewhere, isn't it? For ourselves. For others.

So, if you are clumsy, so be it. Stop being so embarrassed on tripping. Laugh, stand up and get going.

Messy? Well, Joey approves. Go find your Joey. Heck be your Joey.

Awkward? Ahem. Chandler Bing rings a bell? Isn't he the cutest? So are you! Relax! 
Well, my F.R.I.E.N.D.S references aren't going to stop. So let's jump ahead.

In short, be you. And be happy about being you. Nobody can pull an You better than you. 
Cherish yourself. You'll see how the labels will start to vanish. You'll see how people will start to value you more than ever. 
And even if some don't, well who cares? You cherish you! 💕 .

  • “It was never the event - illness, asteroid, nuclear war, whatever - that was the problem. It was what people did after. And people always reduced to their least human denominators when things went bad.”
.
.
The Girl In Red by Christina Henry is about a disease which destroys most of the U.S. population, Red and her brother Adam decide to try and reach their paternal grandmother, who lives over 200 miles away. Adam wants to join a quarantine camp, thinking it’s the only way to survive in this new world, but Red isn’t letting herself get shut away. Red is about to find out that the woods are deep and dark, and there are far worse things than wolves out in the world.
.
.
I do love a re-telling of a classic tale and this one comes with an  inconceivable twist and gore on dark scale. What stood out for me whilst reading this was how emotional the story between the protagonist and her family became. Red is a strong willed character who due to no fault of her own has had to deal with a tough start in life. It’s her tactical way of thinking which takes her on a bumpy road towards her grandmothers house.
.
.
Along the way we get to know not just Red but several other characters. The story itself felt thrilling and intense when it came to the parts where surviving seemed like a lost concept. A definite recommend read.

Thanks to @titanbooks for sending me a copy to review and congratulations to the author @authorchristinahenry on a darkly fun re-telling of a classic story.

  • There are so many things I would tell this new mum on the left. I wish she knew what she would go on to tackle & conquer with two children at her side...soon to be three. I wish she knew that while she felt so broken and so far removed from her old self that this in fact was the most beautiful part of it - a rebirthing. I wish I could tell her that when she is ready and only when she is ready that slowly her body will strengthen and be stronger than ever before. I wish I could give her the guide we have just written to help make taking care of herself in among all of this feel like a possibility with some simple steps. I am also about to be this new mum again in about 20 weeks and will need to be reminded of all of this ❤ It is for all mums no matter where you are on your journey that I wrote our guide 'Get Started' with @cara.drjuliesmumsquad 📚 I just gave a heartfelt thank you on Facebook to all who have pre-ordered this book some as long ago as five months back. You have helped other mums in doing this and helped make this happen - thank you all sooooo much - I am insanely grateful and this will be officially landing tomorrow! 🏋️‍♀️🥑🌿💚📚 #getstarted #drjuliesmumsquad #strongmums #mumswellbeing #keepingitreal #motherhoodunplugged #author #authorsofinstagram #mumprenuer #entreprenur #empoweringmums

  • I’m a little late to the party, but two years ago this little book went into the world. I’m grateful to anybody who has read it and found Sam’s heart inside. Thank you for all your support. And hope you enjoy the next one!

  • Eurgh, insomnia.

Hot, restless, clammy, itchy, damp, fucking-why-can’t-I-fucking-sleep, insomnia.

I read somewhere that sleep is like an erection - the harder you think about it, the less likely it is to happen. How true that is. The more I want to sleep, the more I try, the more illusive it becomes.

Sometimes I go a few hours before admitting to myself I’m not going to sleep; often it’s only a few minutes. “You’re so aware of sleeping”, my brain will say, “that there’s no chance you’re going to be able to do it”. And from that moment on, I’m stuffed. There’s no coming back. I’ve thought about it - I’m conscious of sleeping - and therefore I’ll never be able to do it.

So I toss and turn; and get up; and try sleeping somewhere else; and try reading; and try listening to a podcast; and try writing; and try breathing; and try reading some more; and try tossing and turning again. I do this on repeat for hours and hours and hours. 1am becomes 2am, becomes 3:30am, becomes 4:15am.

Eventually birds begin tweeting outside, rubbish trucks start zooming up the road, day slowly breaks and I blink my way into it - unrested, sore, knackered, sad.

I fucking hate insomnia.

And it’s always worst on Mondays.
