Let's Talk Heavy Periods

Hi Spookies! I wanted to talk about what it's like to struggle with heavy periods, as it can be completely debilitating and yet it's something society pressures us to not talk about. Going to say now that this post will contain very graphic talk about periods and associated symptoms so if that's not for you, I'd stop reading now. 

really amused myself with the font choice, heheheh.

99 Days Until Halloween

Hey Spookies! It's finally less than 100 days until Halloween, so naturally, I'm excited already! I spend most of the year daydreaming about the most magical time of year, especially over the dreaded summer months, so knowing it's finally drawing nearer has me desperate for the month of spookiness to finally arrive. But what's so great about Halloween? I could go on all day, but I won't, don't worry!

Wax & Wick Workshop Review | Vegan Candles

Hey Spookies! Part of #CarnLIVal was an amazing raffle, and I'm pretty sure I won the candle of dreams. I am fairly certain I've fallen in love with a candle. It's just perfect in every way. So thank you, Wax and Wick Workshop* for gracing this planet with the most wonderful candle to ever exist.

Tell Me More Tag

Hey Spookies! The amazing Lyd from What Lyd Did has made a fabby new tag which I couldn't resist trying. I've loved everyone's answers so far and getting a good nosey into other people's thoughts on blogging so naturally, here I am, doing it myself.

Summer #CarnLIVal | Breakout Liverpool

Hey Spookies! About that secret activity after #CarnLIVal…it was an escape room! Knowing how much Katy and Sam love escape rooms, I had a sneaking suspicion and was so freaking jazzed to discover I was correct! Breakout Liverpool were our marvellous hosts and it was so much fun!

This is such an unflattering picture of me but WE BROKE OUT!

Summer #CarnLIVal 2017

Hey Spookies! This weekend I was lucky enough to go to the wonderful summer #CarnLIVal, organised by the bloody brilliant Katy and Sam. Every event Sam and Katy organise is simply amazing, and this was, of course, no exception!

Veganism Doesn't Cure Everything

Hey Spookies! This post is going to contain discussion of menstruation, health problems, diet and medication. Somewhat stupidly, I decided to delve into the replies to Halsey's response to that awful tweet proclaiming that birth control isn't healthcare. She talked about symptoms she experiences with menstruation and how birth control helped that, and yet the replies were full of people insisting hormonal conraceptives weren't necessary. Among those, were people actually insisting that veganism can cure menstrual cramps. Seriously. This really, really, really grinds my gears. 

This is just a handful of the medications I rely on to live a normal life or to, you know, not die.

A Month in Horror Films | June '17

Hey Spookies! If you've been following my blog or my twitter account you'd know I've been especially unwell this month. This has led to a lot of time trying to rest whilst fending off boredom, so I've taken the opportunity to get cosy and watch a few horror films I'd wanted to see for a while.
