Books I Got for Christmas! | rosie abigail

Christmas seems like months ago now, not merely nineteen days ago. Did we even have Christmas? It’s all a bit of a blur. That pandemic life, eh?  Despite having a very different Christmas this year, (I didn’t get to spend it with family, but I did get to spend it with my fiance and our…

How I’ve Learnt to Live with an Anxiety Disorder | Health & Self-Care

Put me up on a stage in front of hundreds, speech in hand, and I’ll own it. Plonk me down in a room full of strangers, I’ll fake small talk so good you’ll think I’m an extrovert. Give me a tight deadline and I will work, work, work until I get it done. But if…

November 2020 Favourites | Skincare, Style, Books, and More…

It’s been a good few months since I’ve posted a favourites! Four months in fact. Time really does fly when you are in a global pandemic… My last favourites post was for July 2020 - I had just turned twenty-four, had gotten engaged, and was trusting in the media that we would be out of…

Little Ways I Am Taking Care of 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.

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. Worldwide disease, countries on lockdowns, global leaders behaving like toddlers; I didn’t expect this when I wrote my New Year’s Resolutions. As of Thursday 5th November, England (where I live) has gone into…

My Love of Hygge; or, How to Find Joy in the Smallest of Things | Lifestyle

I tend to elicit odd looks from strangers at this time of year. Mainly it’s because you can find me shouting “oh that’s so cwtchy!” or “yesss that’s just so hygge” at almost everything. If you yourself are furrowing your brow like “what is she saying?”, let me give you a brief run down. ‘Cwtchy…

Meet My Houseplants! | Plant Care, Tips, & Tricks

With my love of floaty skirts and overwhelming need to be the ‘mum friend’, it was eventually going to happen… That’s right folks, I’m what the cool kids are calling a ‘plant mom’. As soon as lockdown hit, I got my first houseplant, and since then my plant habit has slowly been getting out of…

You Should Take a Mental Health Day | rosie abigail

This is for the people who have burn out, or have mental health conditions, or are stressed, or who live and breath and sleep and exist, or everyone: start treating your mental health the same as you treat your physical health. I’ve had flare-ups of mental health conditions over the last four years, and that…
