This blog is a place for me to document my life. Whether it be dealing with mental illness or the latest makeup I'm enjoying :)

In 2014 I was diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder which has since taken over my life.
Since 2016 I consider myself to be in recovery battling against my OCD and Anxiety.
If you'd like to know more about my mental health I have done a full blog post on it :) ...

In 2017 I was diagnosed with Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis. I currently have lesions on my brain and my spine is clear. I am still getting my head around the diagnosis and am using my blog and YouTube channel to document my journey.
If you would like to know more about my MS diagnosis I have done a full post about it :) ...

Since 2016 I have been working on my relationship with myself.
It hasn't been the best.
So I decided to go on a journey of self discovery.
I am learning more about myself than I ever have. I am discovering what I really need.
I am for the first time, prioritizing my recovery. Putting it first and foremost (most of the time - I'm still working on it! xD)
This too is being documented on my blog and YouTube channel.
It's wonderful to look back and see how far I have come.
As of 2017 I am finally finding myself again and I'm feeling rather badass 💪😃 

As I said years ago when first starting out, I am on the quest (see what I did there ;D) to find not only beauty on the surface (make up, hair etc.)
but also to find beauty within. I now have the added drive to want to raise awareness around mental health and try to contribute to erasing the stigma that surrounds it much of the time.
This is my little corner of the world where I can completely be myself. No pressure, no filtering, no added sugar, not watered down, just me and I would love to be able to help anyone along the way :)

Thank you for stopping by! :)
