Anxiety | The Very Worst Thing | Chloe Hammond

Over the last year and a half, I’ve discovered there are many, many unpleasant factors involved in suffering from Anxiety. I’ve been horrified to realise that my brain is betraying my trust- suddenly I can’t believe it’s assessment of a situation. In the past if my brain told me I’d forgotten something, I had. If…

Baby Got Back Pain

Brecon Trail | My Mount Everest

Yes I am one of those girls that will wear make-up to the gym, I own one pair of trainers (which I chose based on their appearance rather than function) and the sight of mud leaves me a little nervous that I’m going to slip and fall to my death.

Mental Health is a Garden

Mental health is kind of like a garden. You can’t do a spot of gardening for a couple of hours over the summer and be done with it.

Laura Mvula in Cardiff

When Laura Mvula hit the stage, the excitement was unreal! The whole band walked onto the stage during a moment of complete darkness. ‘Overcome’ lit up the entire venue and hearing her voice blast across the speakers was exactly how I had pictured it.

Luna Organic Beauty Boutique | Cardiff Launch Night

We had a chance to speak with owner and founder of Luna Organics, Samantha. It was great to hear the story behind the skincare line and beauty boutique. She has such a passion for her industry, and it’s through the necessity of finding alternatives that her brand was born.
