the trials of my syngonium

I didn’t know a syngonium was a syngonium. They were just these odd mottled plants my mum had. She’d cut them at the stalks and put them in a vase, and there they’d live forever more. So when I looked for greenery to compliment my new home, I took cuttings from my mothers plant and … Continue reading the trials of my syngonium

yep, I’m a plant lady…

So, if you’ve been following me on Instagram, you will have noticed a change to my content. A dramatic change. Yes, that’s right, I’ve gone plant crazy. Not quite sure what has happened. Actually, I am. It’s the obsessive gene. The addictive gene. I’ve got it. There’s no grey with me. There’s love, and there’s … Continue reading yep, I’m a plant lady…

my uterus thanks you

Why hello! Currently, I am suffering through the bloody mess which is my period. Yes, that’s right. I just mentioned the ‘p’ word. As a woman, we’re not supposed to, right? Yet, as a woman who bleeds like a murder victim several times a month (yup, you heard me right), it’s part of my life, … Continue reading my uterus thanks you

what YouTube beauty channels don’t tell you

I’ve really been enjoying YouTube at the moment. In particular, beauty tutorials. Have never really been the makeup type. In the past I may have tipped my hat at makeup every now and then with some mascara and maybe, just maybe, eyeliner. I remember when I left home to live in the ‘big city’ and … Continue reading what YouTube beauty channels don’t tell you

mental health interruption

So I had a plan. I was going to pick a poem from those you have graciously sent to me and read it on a video. I wanted to celebrate my fellow poets. I wanted to give them a voice. But my mental health got in the way. The wax and wane of mental health … Continue reading mental health interruption

KOOL-AID: they’re looking for me

To say I’m scared is a massive understatement. See, when you’re in the cult, they know everything about you. Your family, your friends. Gruff had a visit from the cult. Suited bastards, he called them. Apparently, they are concerned for my safety. Worried about my mental well-being. Why else would I have left the church … Continue reading KOOL-AID: they’re looking for me
