They say that a picture can tell a thousand words, but those words aren't always truthful. Today is World Mental Health Day, and, although I may look strong and put together here, in reality, I'm far from it.

I wish I was in a better place than I am right now to offer support to those who need it. Instead, I'm calling on my family and friends to support me, and have listed some articles in my bio to offer guidance to you. Don't keep anything to yourself. When you're suffering with a condition like this, honesty is the only way to recover. πŸ’›

Mostly just leg from Saturday night (apt, as I'm trying my best to find my feet again). This time they're sat in leopard heels and leopard heels make everything a little bit better.

I got a First in my Masters' dissertation. I'm now spending all my time telling my family, friends, (and my foot) about it. I'm proud, exhausted and full of tears, but in the midst of a very bittersweet week, I'm glad no one can ever take this achievement away from me. β€πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸŽ“βœ¨

It's October, so I'll use the pumpkin emoji from now until forever. Fact. ❀

Happy October! 😘 I absolutely love this time of year and have wasted no time in pulling out high-neck jumpers already. This roll neck was my mum's and is retro/ancient Marks and Spencer's. First photo taken in the set, shot on my iPhone, filtered with F2 in VSCO. This is part of my #oneshotweek (see last post for more info) ❀

Hey guys, sorry it's been a while. To get back into the swing of posting, I've decided to start a #oneshotweek (it *unfortunately* doesn't involve tequila). Each day, I'll set up for a photo, and post the first shot I get. It's easy to seek absolute perfection on social media, and I can openly admit to scrolling through swathes of the same photo with a slightly different edit to ensure what I post is 'perfect', and I think it's this pressure that's halted me from returning to Instagram sooner. This photo was shot on my iPhone, stood on its end on a wheelie bin in an alleyway as a timed shot. The image has been cropped and straightened on the Pictures app, and has the Mono filter applied. My phone shoots in bursts, and this was the first snap from the first shot. If you want to join in, feel free - it doesn't have to be for a week, but I think it's good to touch base with reality and honesty every now and again. πŸ’›

I'm very proud to be a tiny piece in the huge #MyFaceMyRules campaign by @sleekmakeup . Celebrating individuality in the way you dress, wear your makeup, and present yourself is so empowering, and something that should be recognised. I'm thankful I've been able to work with a brand who have such a strong, rallying message at their core (and for unlimited excuses to wear bright lipstick/glitter/shedloads of mascara, too). You can find all the creative content for the campaign on their Insta ❀✨

It's been AGES (like, literally ages - the whole app has had about fifteen-billion updates and feels so bizarre RN). This week I finished and handed in my Masters dissertation, and now I feel completely lost, so I did what I know best - I cut in a fringe. Normal posts will resume when I get to grips with life sans 20,000 words (and a few centimetres of hair). πŸ“šβ€

Here's something a *tiny* bit different... As many of you know, (because I talk of nothing else) I'm just about to finish my Masters' in Creative Writing. I'm currently tying the last knots in my dissertation, and as part of my project I have started to turn my poems into a series of vignettes. The poem is transcribed below - in film, I wanted to capture her inner turmoil in a physical way. I would really love your thoughts, and for you to let me know how it made you feel. Thank you. ❀
