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!

Change is a very good thing… | Rosie Abigail

To quote Obi-Wan Kenobi, “hello there”. To quote myself, “long time, no see, eh?” It’s been a little while since I’ve been in the blogging sphere, a few months in fact. I’m sorry for not heading off with an interim “I’m off!” post or a “see ya in August!” message. You see, I hadn’t planned…

May Favourites 2022 | Books, Style, and … COVID?

Well, this post is a little late. I guess that’s what happens when you get COVID... I’m on the road to recovery now, but at the very end of May, COVID hit me for the second time. And this time was bad. We had the paramedics out for my asthma, oxygen monitoring for a week,…

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.

Talking to Your Boss About Chronic Illness | rosie abigail

I won’t sugar-coat it, living with a chronic illness can be ruddy hard. And I mean beyond the actual chronic or condition part of it.

Six Big Ideas for a Sustainable Wedding | 2022 Wedding | Rosie Abigail

Folks, it is officially less than six months until I get married! That’s wild! It feels just like yesterday that Rory, my fiancé, surprised me with a ring and I screamed the house down with “What? Yes, OH MY GOD YES!”. Actually, it only feels like last year that I got butterflies in my stomach…
