Some Things Happen For A Reason

Some Things Happen For A Reason

I often get asked how hard my life is with only one hand, a waiter even once told me “You don’t understand how much you’re missing out on”. For some reason, the world assumes that my “disability” is something of a negative difference, it only holds me back. But I will hold up my hands (or hand) and swear on my life that I would never want two hands in my life, even if someone could magically make one appear tomorrow, it’s not something I’m interested in.

An Honest Life Update

An Honest Life Update

I have two questions for you, how is it April already and when can summer start, please?

I’m not one for New years resolutions, I understand that a new year feels like a good time to motivate you in changing something about yourself, but I personally find that fact that most only find a New Year as an excuse for motivation, ironically un-motivating. Saying that though, Amelia and I had a discussion on where we wanted to go with our content this year which you could call a kind of resolution for 2018 and I’m super happy to tell you that we are getting there!

We wanted to take our content in a new direction. I love clothing and I love Interior design, so why were we not creating content on our YouTube channel along those lines? Who on earth knows. Probably because we were stubborn, we liked being girls that were doing something more unconventional. The stereotype of girls is that they like beautify and fashion and we liked the fact that our content opposed this, but when it gets to the point where we are purposefully not creating content on those topics, topics which we enjoyed just to oppose a stereotype, it began to feel super fake and forceful. So 2018 was the year we started creating the content we enjoyed watching, and hopefully you are enjoying it too.

To most, working from your living room seems like the dream. The possibility of starting the working day a little later due to no commute, the idea of sitting on your sofa with a film playing in the background and the comfort of wearing tracksuit bottoms and a hoodie rather than work attire. But let me tell you right now, on the days when you do actually have to sit at your computer all day working from home, you can feel incredibly sad, tired and even depressed. Why? Because working from home can be very lonely. Continue reading “Is Working From Home The Dream?”

Living Together With The Boyfriend For The First Time

Living Together With The Boyfriend For The First Time

If you’ve been following my online journey for the past 5 years then you’ll know that I’ve only been in one serious relationship. Ryan, he’s the one I met on Tinder, the boy I fell completely in love with and the one I bought a house with. To some this may seem a little extreme, especially once you learn that we’ve only been with each other for about 2 years but when I knew, I knew – It was as simple as that.

After spending weeks trying to work out if Ryan was a real person or not – I mean who doesn’t have any form of social media these days? We finally went on a date, and after our first meal together we practically saw each other every evening from then on. We never did the whole playing it cool thing, we didn’t waste months trying to work out where we were in the relationship, we just started it by telling each other the truth, and I think that’s probably why we have such a trusting relationship now.
