Self Care Sunday 01

I've been thinking a lot about self care recently. January is always a particularly difficult month for a lot of people - it's dark, it's rainy, it's cold, we don't have Christmas to look forward to... - and although I've been doing pretty well, I've also had a few key appointments to go through / look forward to so I've been feeling a little down and on edge. To combat this I've been practicing a lot of self-care and it inspired me (along with a quick Twitter poll) to document it more often on my blog. And so: Self Care Sunday was born! I do love a good blog series and although I'm a little late starting I thought it might be a nice one to run through 2017. It co-insides with my 2017 goals rather well, too!

Pokemon Moon

I received a copy of Pokémon Moon for Christmas (thanks Nan!) and now that I've logged a decent amount of hours in game play I thought I'd share my thoughts so far on the game and the new region, Alola.

Mini Charity Shop Haul

On Wednesday my Dad & I had our first adventure day of the year and we decided to go charity shopping. You all know that charity shopping is one of my favourite things to do - I even bought most of my Christmas presents from them last year! - and it's especially fun after New Year because a lot of people will have de-cluttered after Christmas and showered their local charity shops with goodies for me to buy!

Goodbye 2016

I wasn't sure which emotion I'd feel when I came to write this post but as it stands right now all I feel is relief. I'm trying my best to separate specific allotments of time from circumstance (it's a bad habit of mine) but 2016 really has been pretty awful for me. I've been riddled with physical and mental health issues that don't compare to anything I've experienced before. I didn't know things could get this bad with my anxiety & depression and I didn't appreciate my good health until it was taken from me. Sometimes I feel like I didn't really do anything this year other than survive.

But it's not all bad. Some small but wonderful things happened this year and today I thought I'd write a little recap. I saw my angel Alisha write a post in this style a few months ago and I absolutely adored it so I thought I'd do one myself. I'm so guilty of forgetting the smaller moments because they're so easily overwhelmed by the bad but I'm hoping that writing and referring back to this post will remind me that 2016 hasn't been lost.
