Nearly time to walk down the aisle... Writing this now, I have 86 days left until my wedding day. That's 86 days left to plan, prep, prim, until I finally get to say 'I do' to my fiancé Albon. I know it's cheesy, and some may even scoff, but I always knew I wanted to marry him. We had met at church at fourteen years of age, and what was friendship quickly grew to a great love. He is my best friend, and excited cannot begin to explain the euphoria I feel that I get to spend th
New year resolutions are everywhere. “I’ll drink more water…. ….exercise daily Quit this, quit that.” But what’s my resolution to myself? You make have seen it already if you follow me on Instagram. It’s to focus so much on making my grass greener that I don’t notice anyone else’s. To tend to my life in order to reap the results I wish to achieve. I’m in that transitional point of my life, as most my age. I’ve already graduated university, already working full-time, getting m
I don't need to tell you that life can be stressful at times. With the accumulation of increasing adult responsibilities, juggling social life engagements, pursuing career progression, maintaining relationships, and staying healthy, there doesn’t leave a lot of time for “me time”. It’s important for us all to take a step back from life, evaluate what’s happening, and put into action things we can do to destress. We must put our health first in our lives because without our he
Social Media Detox It’s important to take a mental health check regularly, and remove yourself from social media to detox. For the past week I’ve been MIA from my Instagram, absent from blog, and focused on my relationships with others in the real world. But why? We live our lives so deeply attached to technology that we can find ourselves feeling hopeless without it. Just like drugs or alcohol, we can get addicted to technology. We can become so dependent on our gadgets that
The Victim Of A Car Crash In a eye-opening twist of events, my fiancé was a victim of a car accident. He was sitting in our Mercedes Benz C180 in typical M4 standstill traffic when an elderly man didn’t look into the other lane before merging. A combination of going way too fast for the traffic conditions, and not paying attention to other cars on the road resulted in our precious car being taken to Parramatta Smash Repairs for the next three weeks. Thankfully my fiancé was l
I am truthfully happy to say that on June 8th I'll be turning 21 years old! Turning 21 in the US is a big milestone as it means your legal to drink but for me turning 21 is a different kind of milestone. Why 21 is a big deal for me I've never really been a yay it's my birthday kind of person. I used to hate my birthdays as I grew up in a really abusive, and oppressive household so my birthday was usually just another day. During my teens I was extremely depressed, had terribl
I recently graduated university, having completed a bachelors of Communications, majoring in Advertising, and Public Relations. Everyone kept congratulating me at the ceremony, online, and for the days post-graduation. But always with the congratulations there was THE questions: “How do you feel now?” “What will you do now?” “How does it feel to finally be an adult?” But the truth is I didn’t feel any different.
