Radical Self-Acceptance

I've heard this term a lot in my podcast and reading circle over recent months and it got stuck in my head. Self-acceptance is something I've been working hard on this year, but what's so radical about it?

Why it's OK to get ALL THE FEELS from the Star Wars trailer

Allow me to set you a scene: 

It's Tuesday morning. 7am.
I am awake, in bed, switching my phone off airplane mode to wake my wifi up.
It's Star Wars trailer day. I know this because my friend and I were discussing it over messenger before bed.
I fire up my YouTube app, find the trailer and click the play button.

3 minutes later, I rewatch it. Jeez, my eyes are leaking!

I open up Twitter and Facebook and see what the world is saying about it, and to see if anyone else is a bundle of emotions like I am.

The Owls Are Not What They Seem

I've achieved a lot of my nerd life goals this year. I've run around the TARDIS console in my chucks at the Doctor Who Experience, I've been a character in Star Wars when I went to Secret Cinema and last month I freaked myself out and stood in the Black Lodge from Twin Peaks when I went to London's weirdest new pop-up dining and drinking experience The Owls Are Not What They Seem.

Ditching the Diet Mentality

At the end of February I decided I was done with the diet mentality for good. I'd been dieting non-stop since I was twenty and on the run up to my birthday I decided that sixteen years was enough. I cannot face going towards forty still feeling like an uncomfortable teenager; pulling at my clothes and hiding my features. No more. It's ridiculous, I'm a grown woman and I will no longer take part in this ridiculous mindset. We're done, diets. You hear me? It's over.
