Hot Girl Autumn. No, Literally – The Planet is Overheating | Rosie Abigail

Not to be someone to wish away the summer, buuuuut I’m actively wishing away the summer. Some people thrive in this heat; lying out in the sun, making the most of pub gardens, getting that Hot Girl Summer. I’m more of a Soft Girl Autumn type of gal myself.   I can’t put my finger on…

My Experience with the Implant | Birth Control | Rosie Abigail

We’re not on about breast implants today; I think my double Ds don’t need any extra help. I’m talking about the implant a la birth control! With the discourse surrounding abortion and birth control as rife as ever, including misinformation, I thought it would be good to share some real life experience, and to talk…

11 Travel Bucket List Ideas to do Before Hitting 30! | rosie abigail

One hundred and seventy six days. That’s how many days until my next holiday! It’s not like I’m counting down or anything… I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve slapped my hands on my desk, audibly sighed, and announced “I need a holiday”. With my hen do next month, wedding in July, and…

I Am Not Losing Weight For My Wedding Day | rosie abigail

I’ve got a chubby belly. Arms that wobble. Thighs thicker than a bowl of oatmeal. And I’m not losing any of it for my wedding.  Not that it should be anyone’s business. My body, my rules after all. However, since I got engaged almost two years ago, I’ve felt that pendulum start swinging - one…

Owning Your Introversion | rosie abigail

Owning Your Introversion | rosie abigail

“How’s your meter?” What, my meter reading? Well, it’s pretty damn high thanks to this inept government. “No, your social meter, you silly soul.” Oh. Yeah. That thing.  That’s a glimpse of a conversation I have with my partner, almost daily. My social meter is slang for how I’m feeling mentally and socially. Each time,…

Exploring the New Wellness Range at The Body Shop | Wellbeing & Self-Care

When it comes to skincare, bath and body, there is only one company that has stolen my heart. Look, Lush may be the queen of bath bombs and Glossier the princess of brows, but if you are looking for an all-round icon, there’s only one. Of course I’m talking about The Body Shop. If you’ve…

Finding My Creative Spark Again | Burnout | rosie abigail

For the past month, I’ve mentally felt as flat as a singular pancake. I’m not talking thick, fluffy, American style pancakes here, no no. I’m talking like a plan crepe on a plate. That’s not to say I’ve felt bad - crepes are great! It’s just that everything has felt a bit meh. I’ve been…
