    Alopecia Awareness Month

    Do you ever wake up in the morning and instantly feel sad? Knowing that you don’t have hair can have that effect on you. Sometimes, you can wake up feeling like badass b and sometimes you wake up feeling like the whole world is shit and nothing is ever right in the world. September is Alopecia Awareness Month, so I just wanted to write a quick post. Two years ago I wrote a post about my journey with alopecia but haven’t really written about it since. I have been more open about it on Instagram and the support has been so amazing. Admittedly, it has taken a mental toll on…

    16 Thoughts Whilst Reading A Princess in Theory

    I wanted to write more about the books I’ve been reading aside from just writing an indepth book review. I’ve done them in the past, but I don’t think I’m very good at them – I just say I like it or I don’t. I’m a simpleton 😂 I’m always very vocal when I’m reading a book or watching a TV show (except when I’m in public and I have difficulty restraining myself because I just want to shout), so I decided to compile a list of thoughts I had whilst reading this book. Gotta put those thoughts somewhere! Somebody tweeted about A Princess in Theory by Alyssa Cole and after reading…

    Unapologetically Filipinx Jamaican

    “They’re your children? Are they adopted?” I remember standing at the bus stop feeling like a melon because a random stranger had asked my mother this question. She was offended, as anyone rightly would be. I was left with a sense that despite my mix I could never truly express my Filipinxness. I felt ashamed. When we think about identity, we usually focus on what we can see. If you were to look at me, you would probably be able to tell that I’m biracial. Living in London I have always had a sense of multiculturalism, which I know I am so blessed to have but growing up there was…

    Being Mixed Race

    I’ve had this topic title floating around in my head since 7th September 2015. I know this because Notes told me so. I’m not sure why I chose now to actually write about this, but I feel better for writing it. I actually brainstormed before doing this, which is not something I usually do, but I wanted to be sure I included everything that has been floating around my head.

    Relationship Truths

    I haven’t been completely honest. The dating game is a hard game to play. Some of my readers will know that I was in relationship, which has now since ended. Relationships are a funny thing. You never know if you’ve jumped in too quickly, until after it has ended. In the beginning there is always a honeymoon period and you think the sun shines out of their arse. Everything is all rosy and peachy and it feels like nothing can go wrong. Then it does. Relationships have always been tricky for me. I’ve never been one to hold a relationship for more than a year. I don’t know what it…

    #StillLivingWithMyParents

    I’ve always wondered why people in my generation are so eager for independence. It’s understandable if you don’t have a choice, or your parents kick you out, or other unavoidable circumstances, but if you have the choice wouldn’t you rather stay at home and save up your money to buy your own place? Everyone seems to be rushing around getting cars, wanting to rent their own place, etc. Whereas I’m still trying to figure out what it is I want. It’s all very well having a car, but at the end of the day is it not an expensive thing to have? There are many other variables to consider: petrol,…
