First of all I want to make it exceptionally clear that this post is not a dig at mothers at all. I applaud you all, you have the hardest job in the world and I have seen first-hand with my friends the strains and stress and pressure that mothers have.

Going after journalists and media in the wake of Caroline’s death in my eyes is counter-productive. All of the ‘be kind’ posts have been eye opening but have also had a profound effect on my own mental health. On Saturday when I found out that Caroline Flack had committed suicide I felt instantly saddened andContinue reading “Sorry Caroline”
Slimming World protected my weight loss, but not my mental health.
I’d always been a larger kid for as far as back as I can remember. I never fitted into my age range of clothes and it’s always been a source of embarrassment to me.

Sorry for the Silence
I’ve not written anything on here for a long time.

HUGHES REVIEWS: THE NEWS
So I’ve been working in journalism for the past two and a half years and I absolutely love current affairs. If you had said that to me when I started my degree I would have said don’t be silly, because even though I was studying journalism I had no real interest in watching the news or reading the papers.
Meltdowns Don’t Always Mean Mental Health Issues
Amanda Bynes has #broketheinternet with her recent interview in Paper magazine and I will be the first to say fair play to her! When I was younger I was never really that big of a fan of her but I always ended up watching her films which to me is a sign of an actressContinue reading “Meltdowns Don’t Always Mean Mental Health Issues”
