That time a guy stuck his fingers up my nose.

I always find myself at a point where I’m itching for change. Usually I just change up my hair but I’m really enjoying growing it out. So instead, this time I decided to get a new addition to my piercings. I’m no stranger to the needle, I have several piercings on my ear but this one was…

What do you do when your head and heart aren’t quite in sync?

Have you ever been in a position where you innocently click through to ASOS, just to have a “browse” and end up with a bunch of items in your cart. Now you’re left with two options; one risky, the other safe. Do you risk spending money you don’t have on things you don’t really need,…

When life gives you lemons, get yourself on tinder!?

For a long time, I was listening to those around me jokingly talking about the experiences and conversations they’ve had on tinder. I was slightly curious but not curious enough to want to join the herd. Eventually, I gave in and I downloaded it just to see what this ludicrous app was all about. The…

Guys Guide to That time of Month

A natural and biological process women go through. Not only that, but we also have to endure many other things whilst this phenomenon occurs. I still feel awkward having to explain to guys why I feel what I feel when I’m on my period. Not because having my period is something, I, myself am embarrassed…

More than what you wear

  Style means so much more than the latest seasonal trends. When I think of the clothing I wear it represents my attitude, my way of life and it’s how I choose to share my personal story. As a teenager I was always afraid of the opinions of others. I dressed in a way  I…

Overcome

*Queue Love & Hate by Michael Kiwanuka* To overcome means to deal with your fears. My mind has been overwhelmed with many thoughts lately. I’m not present in conversations because I’m battling with my inner voice. A voice that has taken the shape of a demon. Self doubt is constantly sneaking up on me. Questioning every…

Reflection

For the first time in a long time I sat down and really thought about my content. Things such as why I write. What purpose does it serve? Do I want to pursue it further? So far my content has been an organised mess. My problem has been not being able to find a niche,…

Life.

While there are people fighting to stay alive, there are others willing to take it away in an instant. When did it become so easy? Life is precious. I have never thought about it or said it in a way I really meant until I witnessed a life leave us in front of our very…

Be You | my perfect imperfections

I’ve had so many insecurities and it always felt easier to deal with it in silence. My insecurities are merely what I see to be unattractive about myself. Perspective – this word has repeatedly sneaked up on me to remind me that those moments where we are in relation to someone else can be a…

Be You | Where are you from? 🇱🇰🇩🇪🇬🇧

“Where are you from?” There are so many ways I could answer that question. I could tell you I’m Sri Lankan because I’m the product of two Sri Lankan parents. I may not have lived in the country to claim it as my own but it’s part of my upbringing, it’s my ancestry, it’s the…

Be You | It’s my Birthday!!!

I wanted my first blog post of this year to be something special and I couldn’t think of anything better than a special birthday post along with mini resolutions in celebration of hitting quarter of a century… Yes I am 25 today! (or I will be when this goes up) There’s a lot I wanted…

Be You | 2017 – The year we rise from our Ashes

2016 has been… an interesting year. I don’t want to dwell on the negatives for too long because that would defeat the purpose of rising from the ashes (or burns) the events of 2016 has left me with. I won’t blame the year for anything that has happened, it just happened to be a series of unfortunate…
