And, Breathe

Life passes by so quickly that sometimes it's nice to just take a step back for a moment, breathe, and then think, "what the hell just happened?!" I was having one of those moments the other day where I was feeling overwhelmed by everything that's been going on and almost had a complete meltdown... But as if by some magical force, my package from Modes4u* arrived a week later which contained a super cute Rilakumma cup. So I scheduled a time out, slipped into my onesie and made myself some hot chocolate with marshmallows.

And here we are. So, let’s have a little catch-up, shall we?

How to Be Positive Without Being Fake

How many times a day do you see things like "good vibes only" or "always look on the bright side of life?" I know I'm not the only one who said at least 5 times. Being positive is pretty much shoved down our throats and there's always one inspirational post displayed on social media every day that the whole meaning of being positive is lost. Instead we find ourselves putting on a fake smile and pretending to be positive without actually feeling positive.

I've been there done that, and to be honest it was awful. I tried to be such a positive blogger but not being able to connect with my true feelings was self destructive.

This year I made it my goal to be a lot more open with my emotions and not to be that person who pretends everything is rainbows and unicorns. So here are my top tips on how to be positive without being fake!

What I Love About Halloween

I can't believe Halloween is only a few days away! Where has the time gone? As I write this post I haven't yet watched a single Halloween film *gasps of horror* but I really hope that by the time this goes live that I would've seen at least one.

There are so many things that I love about Halloween and I'm surprised that I haven't dedicated a whole post to it. Better late then never, aye? So here's what I love about Halloween!

Of Vampires and Mary Sues

Did you ever used to watch Mona the Vampire? I used to love that program when I was a child, dressing up as her and defeating imaginary monsters. I had an obsession with vampires back then; my favourite film was Van Helsing (looking back now I realise that it wasn't actually that great a film) and I could quote it word for word with one of my closest friends. I even re-enacted a few scenes - how embarrassing is that? I just loved how no matter how smoking hot and deadly vampires were, they literally did go up in smoke in a little bit of sunlight. They had a weak spot.
