What It's Like Having A Cage Free Bunny

Cage Free Bunny

Chloé has been with us for about 8 months now and I've gotten many questions on how I've bunny proofed the apartment and what it's actually like to have a cage free rabbit at home. To be completely honest, I still can't quite believe it myself. I never thought I'd have a rabbit hopping around in my living room, neither did I know that rabbits smell like newborn babies, that they are incredibly smart and that they can be total divas. I've been told Chloé is a very unusual pet to have, I've also been told she's spoiled rotten. Having a cage free bunny is both amazingly rewarding but also hard work. Here's everything I've learned about having a rabbit free roam in your home!

Mistakes I Made Moving Into My First Rental

Renting For The First Time

Getting your own place is hella exciting, I know, I did it 5 years ago. I went apartment hunting, scored a new-ish, small, one bedroom flat, exactly where me and my partner wanted to live and moved in 3 months later. The real estate company was all smiles when we signed the contract - and off we went with our keys starting a new adventure, excited to start living together. It is now 2018 and boy our flat has been through a lot. When I think back of how our home looked when we just moved in, it was an absolutely mess. Here's what you need to look out for when you move into your first rental.

Help I'm Getting Better What Do I Do Now?

Jolien Nathalie

Recovering from depression and anxiety is like going through puberty all over again. It's tough, it's exhausting, it's never ending, it's like high school, pure hell. Mental illness is no joke and although I'm doing much better, my goal isn't to go for "the" cure. My goal is to be able to live healthy and happily alongside my struggles. I was never taught to deal with my feelings, they had to be tucked away for no one to see and having them come out all at once in my twenties has been incredibly overwhelming. It's been a rollercoaster of emotions and a learning lesson not only for me, but also for those around me. Being in recovery has broken relationships, mended some and strengthened others. The relationship that has flourished the most is the one with myself and I couldn't be more proud.

I Celebrated My Mental Health Birthday

joliennathalie.com

On the 27th of October I celebrated my mental health birthday. My therapist suggested I do it on the 15th but that was a little too soon for me so I just picked a random date. The purpose of this birthday? Celebrate my existence. Sounds quite pathetic now that I've written it down but it had great meaning - and I was a total mess, which makes for some great blogging content, so here we are! Life has been a bit weird lately, not gonna lie. I'm doing well but I've been feeling like I'm a computer trying to download its latest software update and it's going super slow. I also thought a mental health birthday would be me celebrating a certain achievement regarding my recovery but that wasn't the case here. If you've been following me for a while, you must have noticed that I sometimes talk about homework, in relation to my therapy sessions. Whereas I usually just have a good think about it and don't really do any 'homework', this time I did - I celebrated moi.
