Whoops… I Got Engaged! | rosie abigail

Flaylay of Rosie's hand around a blue mug, whilst she wears her engagement ring. There are pink and white flowers on the left.

Well, it looks like I’ve had to move my blogging schedule around again. No, it’s not because I’ve got lockdown brain and writer’s block this time; it’s because I got engaged! Surprise, world! It was a complete and utter (but welcome) surprise. After being with my boyfriend for five and a half years, living together […]

Five Small But Sustainable Changes You Can Make | rosie abigail

I’m gonna come straight out and say it – if you aren’t making some sustainable changes to your life, what the heck are you doing? I’m not on about turning your life upside down, living in a vegan tree-house in the forest, and turning your toilet into a compost pile. I mean, smaller, more realistic […]

Salbutamol and Seretide for asthma, antihistamines and adrenaline for allergies, Codeine and Prednisolone for flare ups, and Sertraline for my brain. More specifically, Sertraline for chronic anxiety and clinical depression. Those are the medications that rattle around in my bag and go with me wherever I go. I’m kind of a package deal – “The […]

Three Weeks into Isolation | rosie abigail

With all this “free”/locked at home time, I’ve been in a little battle with myself. On one side, I have my anxiety fueled, workaholic self, who is annoyed that I haven’t been productive. Then on the other side, I have my self-care driven self, who is pushing for more naps and more snacks. Sometimes, the scales tip and I end up falling down one of those holes. But for the most part, I’ve been finding joy in balancing between the two! Although normal life has been pushed to the side, I’m beginning to get a kind of new normal routine, balancing my productive and self-care priorities.

I’ve been wanting to do this for awhile, and it seems there’s no better time than a pandemic to get organised and crafty! (Before I begin, I mean crafty as in ‘arts and crafts’, not as in ‘going to pretend to have a limp and then steal all your money whilst you care for me’.) […]

‘The Body Shop’ Skin-Care Routine | rosie abigail

As I’m writing this, I have just finished up my morning skin care routine and feel like an absolute goddess. For years, I didn’t really care about my skin, and would haphazardly throw on some moisturiser as a make-up base, or try a face mask that would end up drying out my skin. But now, […]
