Since I turned eighteen, I feel like I’ve constantly jumped from one identity crisis to another. Recently I’ve had the time to step back from that and get back to basics. I’m trying to remember the person I was (and loved) when I was fourteen and bring her back into my life ✨ .

Also I love scrolling through @nikita_gill pieces on Pinterest, she makes me want to write for joy again ✨
I know it’s really basic but... I’ve added two more autumnal-themed scented candles to my collection! @dwhomecandles are literally my favourite brand of candles — God bless @tkmaxx for stocking them. They’re so pretty and richly scented and these sizes are only £2.99 each! 🕯🍂🍃

Things just keep piling up and today I needed a time out. So I took myself for a walk along the canal, even though it was windy and drizzly and very muddy. I got soaked through and my boots got caked with mud and I splashed in loads of puddles and I found joy in all of it 🍃🍂.

Happy Monday! What do you have planned for this week? I’m still bogged down with a horrid cold but I’m gonna try and have a productive week nonetheless. I’m looking into going on a cliché date to a pumpkin patch the boyo but for now, have a shot of the pumpkin bin in Lidl ✨ #basicwitch

Not the best picture, but I’ve finally been to Goose Fair! I’ve lived in Nottingham my whole life and had never been until tonight. We didn’t go on any of the rides or eat anything because we’d just had a massive pig out at Spoons, but I loved wandering around and soaking up the ambience. I feel like a true Nottinghamer now! ✨

A cute shot of some really pretty wildflowers I stumbled across 🌾 this weekend I’ve really made the effort to get outdoors for a few hours each day and I feel much more clear-headed for it. I’ve also completed a trial shift at my new job (!!) which, I’m so pleased to say, went really well! I don’t wanna get excited but it feels like some good things are finally happening (or I’m starting to appreciate them when they happen to me) ✨
Yaaaaaaas 🍂✨ spotted this sign in @tessies__ when I visited all old Hull haunts last weekend! I’m currently curled up in a hoodie with scented candles on the go, listening to a firework display cracking off somewhere in the distance. I love this season! 🍃.

Six years ago to the day, I packed bits of my life into boxes and moved up to Hull to start university. This weekend, my best friend (who I met for the first time that day!) visited our special city to see all our old haunts and celebrate our six year anniversary! We mooched around Old Town, visited the uni campus, had lunch at Planet Coffee (we used to lunch here all the time when we should’ve been essay-writing), had ice cream at Caffe Gelato (which is where we would treat ourselves after a deadline!) and sat for a while on the docks looking out at the boats and the river. It was such a fun day, and genuinely felt a bit like a homecoming ✨
.
.
To all of you who are starting university soon (or have started already this month), just make the most of it! Don’t have too many expectations, but remember lots of great things can come from your university experience. If I could do it all again, I 100% would because my final grade wasn’t as high as I’d hoped; but I’m so lucky to have come out with amazing friends who are still in my life three years after graduation, knowledge and experience of how I want to carry myself through life, and a sense of belonging in a city that was foreign and scary to me just six years ago ✨

Where do (or did) you go to university?
My relationship with my body has been under strain recently. I’m a big supporter of each and every body being beautiful, except for when it comes to my own body — particularly my tummy. I used to dance a lot and clearly had a much higher metabolism than I do now; I was so used to having a slim, toned stomach and a tiny waist without working for it, that it’s been tough getting to grips with the fact that I no longer have the same shape I did when I was 18.
.
It took several attempts to get the picture above of my dog Taff looking at the camera and I was really pleased with it until I saw that bit of flesh from my tummy poking over my jeans. So I didn’t post this photo anywhere. The next photo along of me on holiday in Rhodes, you can tell from my smile that I was having a really fun day with my best friend, but when I saw the photo, the little voice in my head whispered, “Look how big and fat your tummy is.”
.
Ridiculous, I know. .
Now, this is gonna sound stupid, but I was in the bath yesterday, sat up shampooing my hair. I looked down at my tummy, at the two big rolls that it creases into when I’m bent over, and felt disgust. Just to torture myself, I grabbed the rolls with both hands and squeezed them, pinching the flesh there and feeling miserable.
.

Then I noticed that it looked a bit like the shape of a big pouty mouth (told you it was silly!) and I remembered how, when I was younger, I used to revel in turning my soft tummy into the shape of a mouth and making it sing and talk in silly voices. My mum found it hilarious and so did I. I’ll admit I had a bit of a happy cry. I loved my tummy when I was younger and there’s no reason for me not to now!
