Get The Boys A Lift

I recently wrote an article for a local newspaper called The Western Telegraph about Get The Boys A Lift, a not for profit organization based here in Pembrokeshire helping local and national mental health organizations (and if you haven’t already heard of them, where have you been?!)   The organization was set up in 2016…

How do you measure success?

It’s funny how the more and more I talk to different people about success, the more I dislike the word and wonder how this “thing” can be categorized at all. Success is COMPLETELY different to each and every one of us. Take a minute to think about it. What comes to mind when you hear…

1 Year Post-Uni…

So, today marks exactly a year since my graduation from Falmouth. I wanted to write a little post about the past year (almost a year since I began this blog too), mainly for myself…to look back on what has happened over the past 12 months, and just because it’s always good to check in with yourself…

Self Love Club

Hello from Sri Lanka (and a bandaged together Ellie) 👋🏼 I’ve been travelling for 3 months now and mostly it’s been pretty much plain sailing. Yes we’ve had ups and downs, things haven’t happened as we’d planned and we’ve had to miss out or not do things that we thought. There’s been the occasional missed…

P.S IT’S OKAY to make mistakes

Hey There I hope you’re good today. I’ve actually had a pretty shitty few days – not for any particular reason to be honest, but on the whole they haven’t been the best. After a long sleep and a little sweating-it-out in the gym, today has been much better. I’m sat here with a big…

With The Waves

I remember being told once that emotions and feelings are like waves. They come and go, rush over you and can sometimes feel all consuming – but then they wash away, and you just have to let them. You have to trust the fact that they will wash away just like waves on the shore….

Happiness Is?

In light of World Mental Health Day this week, I wanted to write a little something about this extremely important, although sometimes avoided, topic. Let me begin by saying that mental health is just as important as physical health and it’s about time that we started addressing it as such. Everyone is fighting their own…

I JUST GOT MY FIRST “ADULT” JOB!

At the beginning of the month I saw an advertisement requesting a photographer for a product and model shoot the following week. (that seagull isn’t the product and I’m not the middle aged man photographing it) This photography job was all the way in Lincolnshire, over 300 miles from South Wales, (where I live) and…

“We’re all just humans, aren’t we?”

My mum always listens to radio 4 in the afternoons when she’s not in work. I often wander down to the kitchen, light spilling in over the table where my mother is sat working away on her laptop sipping coffee with cream, the tapping of the keyboard and radio 4 voices the only sounds filling…

a blog about doing – saying yes

I have been thinking a lot about making decisions lately and wanted to follow up from my last blog post about being brave. Life is full of decisions, some of them obviously bigger than others, but I believe all are just as important in depicting the paths our lives take. Sometimes it is common to get…
