I’ve recently signed up to Blurt’s Support Squad after coming across the #BlurtSelfCareathon hashtag on Twitter, in hope that I could show some love to a super important cause. You may not have heard of The Blurt Foundation – they’re a small charity who are dedicated to helping those who suffer from depression, and they are the brains behind the BuddyBox: A Hug in a box, a subscription box created for everyone and anyone who needs a boost, a pick-me up or a big dollop of self-care, how fab does that sounds? I’ll definitely be ordering myself a BuddyBox next time I need a bit of TLC, and I highly recommend you do too (you can order one here).
They started their #BlurtSelfCareathon earlier this year, so I’m a little bit late to the party! But that said, it is ever too late to talk about mental health and open up about how we’re feeling? Especially if we’re encouraging others to do the same? I think not – so I’ll be taking part in the #BlurtSelfCareathon over the course of the next 30 days and it’d be great to see some of you take part as well, just remember to use the hashtag #BlurtSelfCareathon.
#1 – 10 things about me
- I love animals.
I kid you not, put an animal of any shape, size or colour in my eye line and the rest of the world may as well not exist – step aside humans, I’ve got some petting to do.
- My favourite movie is Notting Hill.
I’ve watched this movie almost every single week for the past five years. If it didn’t exist then I’d be… uh, well buggered basically.
- I like to pretend that I’m as cool as a cucumber.
It’s true, I will do everything I possibly can to convince the world that I’m always super calm and happy, but most of the time I’m really completely overwhelmed with anxiousness.
- I’m always singing.
I love to sing. I sing in the car, in the shower, even when I’m out running, which wouldn’t be a problem if I ever hit a single note.
- My favourite food is pizza.
Any pizza, any topping (as long as it’s vegetarian). I just love pizza.
- I’ve just moved house for the first time in my life.
I’ve just bought my first home, but until now, other than for university, I’ve lived in the exact same house since the day I was born. That said, when you’ve got both the beach and the forest on you doorstep (not literally) what reason is there to move?
- If I could, I’d live in flip flips.
From the day temperatures reach 10 degrees to the day they drop back under I’m wearing my flip flops. They are by far the comfiest shoes and when they look good with almost every single outfit, why would I not wear them?
- Chocolate is my kryptonite.
I’m obsessed with eating healthily and I do it really well, but I cannot resist chocolate. Give me a family bar or dairy milk and watch it disappear, just like magic!
- I say I’m into fitness, but all I do is run.
I have a keen interest in health and fitness, but if I’m completely honest I pretty much only ever run! And its fine and I feel great after a run, but I really should try and vary my exercise regime.
- I am a rubbish blogger.
I love to blog, and I love the blogging community, but I really struggle to fit blogging into my busy schedule. So, this does mean my posts are sporadic and far and few between.
