Little Ways I Am Looking After Myself in Lockdown | Lifestyle and Wellbeing

As I am writing out this introduction, I am in a big slump. Big brain slump, big life slump, big everything slump. Little, nasty, biting thoughts keep flapping around my head, and the lockdown blues have really settled in. Full on grey, sludgey, meh vibes. I want to see my friends. I’m aching to see […]

Best Mid and Plus-Size Accounts *You* Should Be Following! | Mid-Size Style

Oof I’m back talking about a passion of mine! Now, I’m no stranger to blogging about mid/plus-size representation (being a mid-size queen myself) and I doubt I’ll ever stop talking about it. In fact, my “What is Mid-Size?” post is one of the most popular posts on Google about this subject (sorry for the brag, […]

Staying Positive in Lockdown 2: Electric Boogaloo | Self-Care

Anyone else feeling like they are in an Orwell novel or a Black Mirror episode right about now? I know I am.

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; […]

Childhood Rooms and Change | rosie abigail

I don’t live in my childhood bedroom anymore. I haven’t lived in my childhood home for nearly six years. My family sold that house in Caldicot to move to Abergavenny for my mum’s job, where I gained a new, smaller room. I also gained a room at my grandparents, where I stayed to complete my […]
