My boyfriend kept saying how annoying and unfair to other people she… Continue reading Mental Health Mondays: Losing Interest

I love plants so much. They are my favourite thing to go shopping for, and the first thing I like to buy when I'm feeling down. At the moment my house is full of plants. I am lucky to have lots of natural light where I'm living at the moment, so every room has greenery… Continue reading My Boyfriend Bought a Bonsai

I’m Trying Really Hard

I'm trying really hard to love the location that my partner and I are currently posted at. Or at least to like it.

I did make one purchase, which was a hot… Continue reading Money Saving May: Week 4

Thankfulness Thursday!

I've been really sick this past week, a combined effect of changing meds, catching a cold, and it being that time of the month. Because of this I've spent a lot of time at home, doing a whole lot of nothing, and feeling pretty sorry for myself. As a result of this, I spent more… Continue reading Thankfulness Thursday!
