Living on my own, people often ask me “don’t you get lonely being all by yourself” and my answer is simple – no! Being alone doesn’t necessarily mean that you are lonely, I have learnt over the years to love my own company. I can do what I want when I want and how I want!
I apologise in advance for this long-ass post! Okay, so today’s post is a pretty personal one and it’s something that I have wanted to write about for a while now. Today is Time to Talk Day, so what perfect way to end mental health discrimination than by talking openly about my mental health journey. I hope by reading this you will not only understand a bit about what I and 1 in 4 people can live with but also make it easier to be there for someone who needs your help.
Whether you are in a relationship or single this Valentine’s Day, it is always important that you treat yo’self! 2018 is the year of self-love and “if you can’t love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else?” (I’ve just started watching RuPaul’s Drag Race, can you tell that I am absolutely LOVING it?!).
As I sit here writing this, I’m surrounded by different perfumes that I have pinched from my mum’s gorgeous fragrance collection… For years I have been secretly (not so secretly now) spritzing myself with a different perfume from her collection, whether it was for a special occasion or just a trip to the local supermarket! I loved admiring the different bottles and packaging. As I’ve grown up, I’ve moved away from the classic “Charlie body spray/teenager scent” and tried to build up my own perfume collection, now that I have upped my skincare game! Along the way, I’ve found some beautiful fragrances (and plenty more unpleasant ones).
I thought I would share with you the perfumes that I adore and the fragrances I’d love to add to my collection, enjoy!
