What We Can Learn From Celebrity Suicides


Every single time another famous name hits the news my heart drops. It was drugs, it was alcohol, it was the fame, the fear, it hurts, deep. The amount of pain and suffering that person must have gone through is a struggle that is all too familiar for many of us. Every loss is a reminder about how important it really is to openly speak about mental health, on how we approach mental health topics and how taking the time to educate ourselves could quite literally save lives. Many of us are saddened to hear when another celeb has taken their own life, for those of us who have struggled or are still struggling with suicidal thoughts - we think about how it could have been ourselves. Suicide is a symptom of a disease, of a battle that many of us are facing and fighting, every day. A celebrity's suicide is yet another warrior we have lost. A person wounded so deep they wanted the pain to stop.

Hema BAE Makeup Review - Glossier Dupes?

Hema Bae Makeup

Hema has released a new makeup line called BAE. It's vegan, cruelty free and features a lot of similarities with the Glossier makeup, beauty and skin care brand. Glossier has been known for their ultra sleek and simple packaging - and for products that really encourage us both as a consumer and customer to embrace natural and light weight makeup looks. I'm impressed by what Hema has done, their new BAE makeup range looks amazing, on trend, the products look promising and above all they're super affordable. We're talking makeup on a budget. I wanted to know, is their makeup a success? Let's find out together in this Hema BAE makeup review!

30 Things I Learned In 3 Years Of Therapy

30 Things I Learned In 3 Years Of Therapy

3 years ago I walked into my therapist's office for the first time. I'd been advised by a psychotherapist and a psychiatrist to check into a mental health unit which I declined, so following that I was sent to the one and only therapist that they had available at their own public facility. It was rough, I was considered a danger to myself by a doctor, and some weirdo, and then told by this new person, a random mental health counselor, that there wasn't anything wrong with me. I was so mad, little did I know that she'd help me turn my life around, forever. I'm no longer the person I was when I walked in there, I've grown so much since then. Things are not perfect today but I'm well on my way to become the healthiest and happiest version of myself. I'm not gonna lie, I didn't think I'd still be in therapy now. I'm trying to be patient, to be at peace with my journey and to allow myself to heal at my own pace. As a reminder of how far I've come I made a list of 30 things I learned in therapy in the past 3 years. I hope you can learn something from it too and that if you are having a hard time, it will help you remember that you can make a change and if not now, later. Don't make yourself feel guilty for things you can't do, I promise it's not going to rain forever.
