Happy Monday!! I hope you all had a lovely weekend, I am back today with a chatty post! As much as I have adored collabing with everyone this month I definitely miss sitting down and chatting with you guys. A while back I uploaded a post called 5 things I would say to my younger self and today’s post will be a
very belated second edition. However, some of these points may be a little TMI so if you are a guy that gets grossed out, maybe don’t continue with this post haha.
Use dry shampoo before you sleep. I am pretty new to the whole dry shampoo bandwagon, I never understood the hype of Batiste, it just used to make my hair feel like straw and I would have little patches of grey. Until I read about applying dry shampoo before you sleep – this was a game changer. I would wake up the next day with hair looking fresh (well kind of fresh). For so long I would walk around with gross hair – I wish I heard about this hack sooner!
Anyone that you date or like should never make you feel bad about yourself. I have had so many shitty guys in my life and i’m sure we can all agree on the fact that some relationships just aren’t meant to be. (Little disclaimer: this isn’t about Cam, I am so lucky to be in love with my best friend). But I have had my fair share on shitty guys who have constantly put me down. A few years back I was with this guy who I thought was the shit – he was tall, confident, good looking and I was over the moon I was with this super cool guy. Spoiler alert: he was a twat. As I was recovering from my eating disorder he would constantly put me down about my weight and ended up just using me for sex. This also applies for friendships too – don’t surround yourself with people who constantly make negative remarks about you. Ditch them – you deserve better!
Wee after sex. I cannot preach about this enough. Going to the toilet after sex reduces the chance of getting a UTI (urinary tract infection) as it flushes away any bacteria before it can travel to the bladder.
Tumblr is the worst social platform if you have depression. Tumblr used to be my all time fav social media platform but looking back now I regret using it as much as I did. There are so many different sides of Tumblr, and the dark mental health side is definitely one that I wish I never stumbled upon. Admittedly yes, there are plenty of accounts that promote recovery, but there were a lot of very triggering accounts too. At the time it was amazing, it was a space to vent all of my feelings but looking back it didn’t help me recover in anyway.
I know this was a bit of a short one but I hope you all enjoyed nevertheless! I have struggled balancing work and my blog recently, so for the upcoming weeks you may have to bare with me. Thank you all for reading!
Until next time,
