Dealing with Imposter Syndrome | rosie abigail

"Imposter Syndrome". I’ve been seeing this phrase pop up all over my social media the past few weeks - “anyone got tips to help deal with imposter syndrome? xo”, “it’s an imposter syndrome kind of day”, “reaaaally feeling out of place at this conference #impostersyndrome”. Every time I see a Tweet or post like that,…

Real Self-Care for Students | rosie abigail

In the land of undergraduate (and postgraduate study), a cold chill has fallen across the kingdom. Assignment titles have been released, all are behind on the reading lists, and even the strongest of students have succumbed to the flu. Stress levels are peaking, and people are forgetting what normal sleeping hours are. Two years on…

How to Get That ‘Work-Life Balance’ | rosie abigail

It’s fair to say that I am a busy bee. I work full time in Higher Education, run an arts and theatre company on the side, blog throughout the week, am completing a part-time Masters, and trying to maintain strong health and fitness, personal relationships, and not burn out (goodness, even reading that makes my…

Eating Out (& Surviving!) with an Allergy | rosie abigail

When I was born into this world, I was truly blessed; blessed with creativity, kindness, and a life-threatening nut allergy. In the first few years of my life, I miraculously avoided nuts. My parents only found out about my allergy in my toddler years because, being the greedy sod that I am, I snuck a…

“If you can’t love yourself, how are you going to love anyone else?” | rosie abigail

Every time I hear that sentence, I can feel my blood start to boil. You want to know why? Because I disagree entirely.  If you know me, you’ll know I’ve struggled with my mental health and image of self-worth for a while. I’ve been diagnosed with chronic anxiety and clinical depression, and like the majority…

Becoming the Woman I Want to Be | rosie abigail

This is me; Rosie Lewis, blogger, theatre maker, over-thinker, allergic to nuts, has a tendency to fall over. In all honesty, I quite like the woman I’ve become. She’s intelligent, creative, kind-hearted, and loyal. She’s a great cook, can sing you a nice song, and will offer to proofread your essays. The woman I’ve become…

Real Self-Care | rosie abigail

When I think of the term ‘self-care’, my mind conjures up images of bath bombs, lavender, wine, blankets, and television. In fact, if I have a self-care evening, it tends to go something like this; jumping into a hot, bubbly bath, applying a face mask, and cleansing my face within an inch of its life;…

What’s In My Bag: Allergy Edition | rosie abigail

I swear, 2010 was the year of 'what's in my bag' videos on YouTube. That’s not a complaint - I was obsessed with them. I'm not too sure as to why I was obsessed with them, but I guess it's because I'm a nosy bugger. I'd marvel at the fancy notebooks these vloggers had, and…

Why I am Running the Race For Life… | rosie abigail

Hello, my name is Rosie; I am an avid reader, keen photographer, blogger, theatre maker, and I am woefully unfit. Last month, I had an asthma attack that resulted in an ambulance trip, multiple oxygen masks, IVs, X-rays, and medication. This left me unable to leave the house for almost two weeks whilst I regained…
