My year abroad is OVER

I officially came home on 13th June and it’s been pretty much non-stop. I haven’t seen any of my friends (loner) apart from the ones at work and family-wise I’ve caught up with my grandma and my dad’s side of the family.

Last few days in Santiago

Wake up, no makeup 💄 

This post is an exploration of what it means to wear make up, particularly for women and girls, and whether or not it matters if you can go outside without it.

I am totally (not) a website developer ✨

So, ya might have noticed I’ve been a little bit quiet lately, especially after my few week-long streak of publishing posts on Tuesdays.

Well, that’s because I’ve been doing some things for my brother who’s getting into personal training.

I’ve been filming, editing, writing, posting, coding and generally working hard to get it all done.


You can see his work, and mine at www.ypfzone.wordpress.com.

He’s a hardworking, dedicated trainer, so if you’re in the Essex/London area, give him a shout!

You can also follow him on Instagram @ypf_training

I’ll go back to regular posting soon, but this summer has not been as relaxing as I thought it would be!

✨Love and light✨,

Hey guys!

I haven’t been writing here as frequently as before as I’m having a bit of writer’s block on one of my planned posts. 🤦🏾‍♀️

In the meantime, I’ve been writing poetry on the Essex Writers’ Circle. It comes to me a bit more spontaneously so you can check my work out here.

Thanks for reading & see you all soon!
