I wouldn't usually opt for a vest top but it's the only way I could show my healed (and still slightly scaly) tattoos๐Ÿ™ƒ This post is longgg over due as I had the snake done back in January (I'm literally the worst for uploading posts on time๐Ÿ˜ญ). Like pretty much all of my tattoos, this one has no meaning (or at least it started that way). I fell in love with the design after seeing it on Lizzie's Insta but after the events that took place in October, I decided to have my sister's ashes put in the outline so she'd always be with meโค Thank you so much @lizzie_bvtattoo for making that happen๐ŸŽ‡ Sandy the scorpion lady by @stephhudsontattoo is still fairly new but she's definitely one of my faves๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿฆ‚ It's crazy how much more confident I feel since getting tattoos. I used to despise my body; I'd starve it, hurt it and hide it but now I actually want to show it off and the beautiful work that's on it๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿ’– Also, they make me look cooler than I actually am which is always a bonus๐Ÿ˜Ž I use Dermalize protective film from @killerinktattoo during the healing process because let's be honest, fresh tattoos turn gross real quick๐Ÿ™ƒ I'm also the WORST for picking/scratching so the sheets protect the tattoo until it's healed and pretty again๐Ÿฆ‹ ----------------------- #blogger #mentalhealthblogger #mentalhealthawareness #selflove #selfcare #selfconfidence #growth #tattoos #beautyblogger #bblogger #motd #bloggershare #blendtherules #beauty #morphe #cosmetics #maccosmetics #benefitcosmetics #benebabe #benefitbrows #barrymcosmetics #nyx #nyxcosmetics #makeuprevolution #lipcote #browcote #revlon #pastimewithpenz

Happy Sunday!โœจ The weather's grey and gloomy today which couldn't be any more different to last week's sunshine๐ŸŒซ I'm swapping my usual lazy Sunday for a stroll in a historic hillside town.

Just one more uni assignment to go until first year is well and truly over!๐Ÿคฏ I can't wait to get this essay done so I can spend the Summer months exploring more beautiful places like thisโœจ Also, I can't wait to be able to put my heart and soul into making content again - I'd be lying if I said I hadn't been brain storming blog post ideas instead of doing uni work...๐Ÿ˜ Just another 3000 words to go!๐Ÿ™ƒ I hope to get back into making videos over the Summer too, I think it's time to blow away the cob webs and give my channel a face lift!

So far, my Easter break has been spent writing university assignments so I've not really had the time I'd like to upload on social media. It's still crazy to me that after May I'll officially be done with uni until September when I'll start my second (and final) year of Child and Adolescent Mental Health - WHAT?! I guess time flies by when you're doing something you love! Although, having two 3000 word essays due within a few weeks with each other is seriously testing my time management skills aha. In September 2020, I'll be starting something totally differentโœจ As much as I love learning about mental health, I've realised that working in that sector is not for me right now - and that's fine! It's something I can always go back to in the future๐Ÿ˜Š So here's to getting through the next few weeks of assignments and making it through first year๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ“ ------------------------------ #nationaltrust #travel #travelblogger #bloggershare #lifestyleblogger #studentblogger #adventures #exploring #photography #dslr #nature #wanderlust #flashesofdelight #darlingmovement #thehappynow #ambhappylife #livethelittlethings #amblifeiscolourful #calledtobecreative #theartofslowliving #aquietstyle #seekthesimplicity #makeitblissful #oneofthebunch

Since becoming members of the National Trust, all @jessicaklowe and I do at weekends is wander in stately homes and gardens and drink tea๐Ÿ‘Œ Visiting such beautiful places has made me even more excited for the next few months when we'll be going to Pembrokeshire, Bath and Brighton!๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿ›๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆ Neither of us have ever been to Bath so it'll be a totally new experience and I'm sure the Roman Baths will be one to rememberโœจ And in August, we will march, protest and have our voices heard for those in Brunei and many other countries where it is STILL illegal to be gay and people face losing their lives in some of the most horrendous ways possible simply for being themselves. I'm fortunate enough to live in a country where I can be myself, gay marriage is legal and events like Pride exist but that doesn't mean homophobia doesn't. It still exists. Everywhere. I'm grateful that I've never experienced it to an extent where it has bothered me or made me fearful and I can't imagine what that must be like, but it is a reality for many LGBTQ+ folk and this must change. Pride is such an incredible and important event, I can't wait to cry in public (again) at our BEAUTIFUL community coming together๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ’˜ I don't like to wish the year away but...

I took this photo by accident when Jess was in mid-laughter and it's the CUTEST thing I have ever seen๐Ÿ˜ญโค On April 14th, it'll be two years since we first met๐Ÿ’˜ We spent our first date in a coffee shop followed by a picnic in the park. Before I get into things, here's a first date tip: NEVER buy cheese & tomato pasta as a date snack because you will have stale cheese breath๐Ÿ™ƒ Movinggg on, it was a sunny, spring afternoon and as always, I was running late (I'm literally the worst). My dad dropped me off in town and I walked over to a coffee shop that just opened - Jess was waiting nervously on the corner. I remember looking up at her for the first time (quite literally as she's taller than me) and thinking "wow, she's tall" followed by "she's SO pretty". I was totally nervous sweating by this point. I ordered a soy latte and Jess ordered apple juice, which for some reason had a cloud of foam on top but I'll forver be grateful for that cloud of foam as it got us talking. We spent over an hour awkwardly sipping our drinks, making small talk and telling absolute lies to one another as we have barely anything in common now๐Ÿ˜‚ I did tell one genuine fact about myself though and out of all the things I could've shared, this one probably should've remained unsaid. I decided to tell Jess that I mash baked beans (I was going through a phase๐Ÿ˜…). Surprisingly, she STILL wanted to see me after that. But I'll be totally honest, as lovely as our first date was, I couldn't see myself in a relationship with Jess. She was sweet, beautiful and SO kind; I felt like she was almost too lovely for me. Also, it's totally fine for me to say that, she knows๐Ÿ˜‚ But I think that's why I fell so in love with her - I wasn't expecting it. From that day on, we continued to see each other; going on cinema dates and eating out for dinner. We grew closer and actually, I could see myself being in a relationship with this girl. Jess is the most kind hearted person I have ever met and she's helped me in ways I'll never be able to truly thank her for. She's incredible and I wouldn't want to do a duet to 'The Middle' by Jimmy Eat World in the car with anyone else๐Ÿ˜‰ I love you @jessicaklowe๐Ÿ’•

This morning was hard. Really hard. My BDD was screaming at me to get back into bed and isolate myself because I looked too ugly to leave the house. I felt unable to face the world and I almost gave in. I broke down. Tears rolling down my face, my body filled with shame and disgust. But I didn't give up. My dog Millie knew I was upset and stayed with me until I was okay enough to try again. And I did.
