The Things That Matter

Recent posts have focused on the less positive aspects of life right now, depressive episodes, and the state of trans rights. Whilst I do think it’s worth spending time airing these issues, it is also important to focus on positive things when we can, to add balance to our lives. 

So, in order to do so, I am going to share the things that matter to me right now, that make my life wonderful, and give me a reason to smile. It might inspire you to focus on the things that matter to you, and give you some silver linings! 



The act of someone you love, giving you keys to their home, will always be a special thing. Which you get to remind yourself of, every time you let yourself into their space with your own set of keys. 

Colourful Content Queens 

I’m an old pro in the content game. However, I cannot create in a vacuum. There are people who make my time online an absolute pleasure, people like the amazing Nicole Ocran and the joyful Sara Brown - their content lights up my phone and I’m grateful for their hard work and dedication. 

Quiet Plans 

Those days when you don’t have anything specific planned, but you know you want to spend the day with someone. You might end up in the middle aisle of Lidl, you could go to Nando’s, or even take a lovely spring walk - quiet plans are the best. 

Re falling in love 

When you have a big wardrobe, like I do, it’s easy for things to get overlooked or forgotten. This has happened to many things, but recently I have re-fallen into dungarees, and I feel like I’ve found a whole new wardrobe! 

Spring weekends 

The warmer weather is here, and the sun has made a huge difference to my well-being. Sitting in the sun, with a fresh breeze, I feel human. Suddenly life feels like it makes sense again. I feel good again.
