Coming Off the Pill: How I Feel Three Months On

Coming Off the Pill: How I Feel Three Months On

A little while ago I shared my decision to cease taking the contraceptive pill in favour of letting my body do it’s thing (whatever that may be). Three months – and four periods – later, I figured an update may be due. Spoiler: I’m not pregnant, I haven’t grown scales and my boobs have not shrunk.

Life Update: Summer in a Nutshell

Is Summer officially over? I’m not sure.

You Don’t Have to be a Morning Person to be Successful (and what I thought of Simba Mattresses!)

You Don’t Have to be a Morning Person to be Successful (and what I thought of Simba Mattresses!)

I have tried very hard to force myself into an early morning routine, but try as I might the result is far more stumbling around bleary eyed in desperate need of intravenous espresso than it is enjoying a morning green juice on the decking before practising bloody sun salutations and setting positive affirmations for the gift of a day ahead.
