Okay so yes it happened again. I let myself get into the best place I’ve been for a while, one thing can happen to turn that on its head and things just start to snowball. 
One thing to knock my confidence, to set things off balance and suddenly everything seems just a little bit worse. I start to worry about what everybody thinks and I just lose my way with words. Not only with writing but in day to day life, I retreat into myself and I struggle to make normal conversations. To even think about what I want to say, so instead I stumble on my words and my mind goes blank. Worst. Feeling. Ever. 


Luckily, after suffering from anxiety for almost three years now, (bloody hell) I know trigger signs and how to prevent the inevitable getting any worse. 

This is why it’s hard to keep consistent with this. I took these pictures over a month ago (hence the fab tan and sunny setting), before things didn’t go exactly to plan and just like that it all gets put on hold until I can sort my head out and myself out, until I get the confidence again to post anything. 

Although anxiety has somewhat become “trendy” now with everyone and anyone seeming to be a sufferer, it’s incredible how many people have begun discussing it. It’s now normal to not always feel okay and I’m pleased that 2018 seems to be the year of people opening up about their struggles and battles with mental health. Especially with Mental Health Awareness day occurring last week, it was so apparent how many people, even if they don’t suffer, raising awareness for those who do, to open up, reach out to friends and don’t hide away. 

I can massively fall victim to this. I’ll put on a brave face, pretend I’m okay, go out and get pissed with my friends, then suffer with my own mind all by myself. I’ve only just started to open up to my friends about how I feel, because to be honest, that is what friends are for and if you can’t tell them and rely on your friends then what’s the point in having them? I no longer have to feel the impending doom that my mind likes to make me experience everyday. I feel better and (as cliche as it is) I feel like focusing on the positives is what it’s all about! 


To do this I’ve started clearing out my back room to start filming videos, made a list of blog posts I want to write and beauty products I want to review, I’ve downloaded a 12 week half marathon programme on Aaptiv to get me focused for the next 3 months on my fitness and use running as a sort of meditation, a time that I literally switch off and encourage all those endorphins that after a run make me feel bloody great! Bonus. 
I also started a new job in the last month which to be honest, is amazing. I’m meeting new people and get to spend my day doing what I love and getting creative with PR! 

I feel this is a bit of a nonchalant blog and a situation that didn't really need to be addressed but to be honest, i'm still struggling to put my thoughts down and hone in on the witty sense of styled writing that I want to succumb to., so wasn't really sure what else to post about but knew I wanted to just write something and this is what has come out! It's okay though.

I’ve spent the month putting things into perspective really, because although we may sometimes tell ourselves otherwise...life is pretty fucking good, I just need to keep appreciating that! 



In other news though, how cute is this Jumpsuit? I got a size larger than I would normally due to the fact I always find jumpsuits too small on my bottom half and the top being fine...this is the life of a girl with a big booty and no boobs. Anyway, it's super comfy and had a denim sort of material so knew it would be something that would last! What's more,  I've left it so long to post anything about it it's now on sale for almost half price (: find it on ASOS via the link below!

** Disclaimer: I wrote this a while ago now, only just had the chance/confidence to post it! ** 

My relationship with alcohol is like one of a f*ck boy. I know it's no good for me but when I feel weak and vulnerable I always run back. 

One thing that has been a huge eyeopener for me this year is genuinely, especially over the last couple of months is how much I dislike drinking. Well not so much drinking, but who I am when I have one too many. Anyone who has seen me on a night out would find this really hard to believe, from the over-the-top confident girl I carry myself as, to anyone else would think this is the life for me. Truth is, I just really don’t like how it makes me act, I’ve made countless mistakes whilst being intoxicated and I hate how it makes me feel in the aftermath of a ‘sesh’. 


Here I am sitting here on a Sunday evening, the hangziety has been creeping in throughout the day because once again I let one drink turn into a bottle and then a couple of beers and shots thrown in for extra measure. I didn’t even plan on having a night out but it ended up with me down the pub and bars for 4 hours, taking myself to McDonald’s at 1am, headed home in a taxi on my own, money spent that I didn’t need to and a horrific hangover this morning that I could have definitely done without. 

 So, it’s brought me on here to air it all out. Why I feel the need to do it when I really don’t enjoy it is beyond me. Over the last couple of weeks, I have made a conscious effort to focus on more productive aspects of my life (like writing on here, running, my job and creating more content for Instagram) and have only had a drink or a glass of wine with dinner or on a Sunday night watching The Handmaid’s Tale with my mum (tragic, I know). But, then there are these days when I get an overwhelming need to just drink and drink, maybe it’s because I find it difficult to say no, or maybe it’s because there’s something in me deep down that just wants to escape and get absolutely out of it. In this case, I felt like it was a Saturday night and there was nothing better to do, most of my friends were with their boyfriends and I’m still so painfully single, but the thing is, it doesn’t get me anywhere at all. Yeah okay it was a good night (the bits I remember) but it’s made today a complete write off when I had things planned, it’s made me feel guilty and has ramped up my anxiety 10000%. 



To be honest, last night was a tame one, I didn’t make as much of a tit of myself as I have done on previous nights out but only because I think I have been more conscious of how I act when inebriated. I’m also actually surprised that I knew when to call it a night, go and get some fast-food and head home. I was honestly just standing there, swaying, could hardly see straight and I was like nah. Not for me. I’m done.

 I watched a series the other week called Live Well for Longer (I am OBSESSED with programmes like these) and this particular episode was on the effects of alcohol. They took 4 groups of women, as women drink far more than men per week apparently, and each group were separated into how much they have to drink each week, ranging from 1-2 glasses to 2-4 bottles of wine or more. They each had to give up alcohol for a month and the results were shocking! Overall it had a massive beneficial impact on their health with some of them cutting down dramatically afterwards because it was such a substantial difference. 

 I always knew that drinking a lot of alcohol had a negative impact on your health and I’m also convinced that it’s the main reason I am finding it hard to lose weight I have put on over the last couple of years. So, it just makes me think, why do I even bother. I am a much happier and positive person when I’m not in a 3-day hangover ridden with anxiety and self-guilt. It’s a vicious cycle that I get myself stuck in all too often. 


Now, I’m not saying that I am giving up alcohol for good, I just think it’s time to be more responsible with it. I hate being the person who doesn’t know when to stop, ALWAYS ends up blacking out and not being able to remember the second half of the night and then have my friends kindly remind of how much of a twat I was. The only time I’m able to write and concentrate properly or create content for Instagram is at the weekend’s and that’s near on impossible if I’m hungover. I like being busy, being productive and I get such satisfaction from doing something with my day, which just doesn’t happen if I have had a heavy night drinking. So, I just end up sitting there, wondering what on earth happened the night before, feeling guilty and unproductive, oh and an empty bank account just to top it off. 



 Yeah, so it’s pretty clear up until now I’ve had a pretty toxic relationship with alcohol. I’m not sure if it’s just me growing up but I much prefer a girl’s night in, dinner with friends or an actual activity that can involve one or two beers but that’s it. I like to remember what actually occurred throughout the evening and wake up on a Sunday not wanting to jump out a window (figuratively not literally). I want to take each day to do something that's going to have a positive effect on me in the short and long term. It’s going to be hard and I probably will have slip ups but hopefully those slip ups will be less and less often. 

This will be a HUGE test and challenge for me. The next few months is going to give me the opportunity to get stuck in situations where drinking uncontrollably is possible but I’m determined to take it easy, enjoy the good times (lol) and time with my friends instead of not remembering it or spending the whole next day in a coma. 

 We’ll see how it goes!
 I'll be sure to keep you all updated!

Doing it for the ‘gram” what a funny little term that is.

 Now, don’t get me wrong I have fallen victim to a doing it for the ‘gram post perhaps a few times too many, but what does it actually mean?
Essentially, it’s posting an unrealistic, perhaps over joyous interpretation of what you are actually doing, in order to show off to your peers, get likes on a post or to just to gain attention.  This has become an overused term amongst our generation but it got me thinking this is actually really damaging.

It goes without saying that our culture now is a world in which we are glued to our phones. Social interaction with strangers has become unheard of and weird and we use our phone in order to prevent making eye contact with anyone. We have become obsessed with who is having the best time on holiday, night out or festival, to who is wearing the nicest clothes or has the best makeup. So much so, it’s come to attention recently that even holiday providers and those which host 18-30’s holidays have noticed a huge dip in demand. No one wants to go away on a messy week away to Shagaluf when you can go to Marbella and post all your bikini clad Ocean Beach pictures up on Instagram for all your friends to see.



This brings me to the point of this post, what exactly has happened to just living in the moment. Without a phone, camera, social app in sight and just making an actual memory for yourself instead of however many followers you have; who, may I add, might not even see it (bloody Instagram algorithms!)

I’ve noticed over the last few years that on top of working full-time in PR, commuting 4 hours a day, keeping fit and going to the gym, trying to sustain a love life as well as seeing my friends, I rarely, if ever, took time for myself to just live in the moment. I was constantly running from thing to another, without taking any time to slow down a little.

We live in SUCH a fast-paced world and especially with all of the competition on social media, it’s no wonder why we’re the biggest known generation to suffer so badly from anxiety. Taking a moment to just think about what you are grateful for is considerably underrated. Just taking a few moments each day to take a few breathes, put things into perspective and think about what you’re thankful for can be extremely beneficial in terms of your long-term mental health.


From suffering with anxiety pretty severely a couple of years ago, I make it an essential part of my day or week to take time out and look at objectively. Even just switching off for 15 minutes, coming off the phone to read, play with my dog or cat, make a nice meal or go for a run. Doing something that has a positive effect on my outlook has had a snowball effect into how I feel overall about myself. Before I did this, I used to worry about the next day, what might happen next week or next year even. By doing this it’s made me more aware of how to live in the moment and the Power of Now. I sit there and think is there actually anything horrific happening to me in this exact second? No? Well, then why am I worrying about it? It’s pointless to worry about something that hasn’t even happened yet! And this is something I have been drumming into my brain (sometimes an uphill battle) over the past couple of years.

So here are a few tips to stop just doing it for the gram and actually live in the real world, right here and now:

1.       Put the phone down (at least for half an hour)
2.       Read a chapter of a book
3.       Do some yoga or any of your preferred exercise
4.       Write down 3 things you are grateful for
5.       Talk to your family or call a friend
6.       Get a recipe book out and cook a nice meal
7.       Switch your phone off and watch a film
8.       Just do nothing for around 5 minutes…. genuinely just sit there with your own thoughts and breathe and notice the world around you

So here it goes, the cliché "I'm back" post; but really, I am. Hopefully to stay this time. 

After almost a year of letting work, boys and a little bit of too much fun get in the way of my passions, I've decided it's a good time to get my mojo back and get back on the blog. Truth is, I love writing, I miss it and there has been countless times over the last year I've wanted to get back to it but made excuses for my lack of motivation. 

Ultimately, I just fell out of love with it. Probably from when I got back from travelling. It became a chore, I wasn't writing content because I wanted to but just because it was something that I could upload for the sake of it and share on my social media. It just left my posts uninteresting, short and very 'samey'. Instead of fashion and lifestyle, my blog was swaying more to that of just beauty, which isn’t obviously a terrible thing but it got me thinking does my blog just have to be about beauty?

I enjoy writing about topical concepts, fitness and issues that readers can relate to. Although I never really had the confidence to post topics such as this, I’m now just starting to think, oh f*ck it. 

There is this conundrum that blogs are a fading industry as we as consumers just engage more with Instagram and rarely venture onto read a lengthy blog in our fast-paced lives. However, this is my outlet, my space to say and write what I feel and I love that. So, who cares if no one reads it, it gives me sanity in a hectic world to be able to write some thoughts and opinions down!


However, although I haven’t been writing, I’ve still been reading a lot which is also the reason why now I have become completely enthralled to get this going again, with regular content. One influencer I have followed for a while now is Sophie Milner. Her blog Fashion Slave is a bit of Bridget Jones’ Diary meets Sex in the City and in addition to the beautiful fashion imagery, she writes about real things, dating, living in London, confidence and the list goes on. It’s completely admirable and always enjoyable to read. Self-help books such as the Little Black Book and How to Be an Overnight Success have also helped (funnily enough) but I’ll save these and their tips for a separate post!

So, all in all, I’m feeling pretty great about making this one of my priorities now. Not because I want to be an influencer, a writer, an author or see that as a possibility at all, I just like writing and knowing people sometimes read it. That’s the thing, a coupe of years ago I would get super freaked out and embarrassed when anyone approached me and brought up one of my blog posts and I have no idea why. Probably because I was worried about what they would think of me. Which is ridiculous tbh. I’m so over worrying about everything and anything.


ANYWAY, thanks reading this far… So, what will you see on here from now on? Definitely more life and fitness posts with some fashion and beauty thrown in too. Thing is, I get inspired at the most random times (mainly at night…night owl problems). I’ve learnt that when this happens, I just need to go with it, instead of just scheduling my blog writing for an hour at the weekends and somewhat forcing myself to do it instead of letting it come naturally. I could have a really quick and random idea and then by the time I get around to writing about it the buzz is gone. That’s why I’m going to make it my goal to not let this happen and only post blogs that I really want to write and the images will follow.

Best wishes,
Hannah xo

ANYWAY, thanks reading this far… So, what will you see on here from now on? Definitely more life and fitness posts with some fashion and beauty thrown in too. Thing is, I get inspired at the most random times (mainly at night…night owl problems). I’ve learnt that when this happens, I just need to go with it, instead of just scheduling my blog writing for an hour at the weekends and somewhat forcing myself to do it instead of letting it come naturally. I could have a really quick and random idea and then by the time I get around to writing about it the buzz is gone. That’s why I’m going to make it my goal to not let this happen and only post blogs that I really want to write and the images will follow.

Best wishes,

Murad is a brand that I am just seeing absolutely everywhere at the moment - every single beauty box and glossy magazine, I feel like the beauty industry have gone Murad mad! This is the Murad Resurgance Hydrating Toner, which I got out of a Glossy Box a few months ago. 

MORE MURAD...
