Life Update

So, this blog. My little old piece of the internet. It’s been awhile. 6 months in fact. A lot has happened between then and now. I figured it best to give my life update through the medium of Instagram. I promise to try and write more regularly again. I’ve missed the outlet of this place. Writing about my love for a book, or my running training schedule, or my mental health.

Part of the reason I came to New York was to speak on a mental health panel. As I’ve said countless time we all have mental health. By talking about it and being aware we can help to prevent mental illness. I will always be prone to depression and anxiety. Coming and going like buses sometimes appearing rather unexpectedly. Case in point, buying a flat whilst having a million other personal events on. I was unable to cope with things not going to plan. To the point of utter breakdowns. I knew it was then time to go to the doctors and get help. Being in tears and unable to explain why your brain rationally thinks how it does never gets easier or less daunting. Anyways, as recognition of how far I’ve come and how I want to help others. I visited the flagship Kate Spade store. That was not easy. As previously mentioned Kate was the first brand I loved. Her suicide definitely affected me. In a roundabout way I bought a champagne key ring. Because a Kate motto is pop fizz clink. So every time I open my flat I’ll remember the good and bad days. A week here has been the best sort of self care. Plenty of wandering, running, eating and sleeping. Resetting in the city that never sleeps. #mentalhealth #itsokaynottobeokay #katespade #depression #anxiety 💕🗽🚕🏃🏼‍♀️🍾🥂

The past 6 months have had the highest highs and lowest lows is basically the life update. The come down post London Marathon and struggling with motivation to train, yet the excitment for officially getting to go back to London with a good for age time. The rollercoaster of emotions with buying my first flat, getting to decorate it but all the tears and stress in between. Got plenty of ideas for new posts, from my new found love for interiors and making sure there is always a pop of colour namely teal or grey, to enjoying cooking again in my new kitchen, to baking recipes I’ve done from melting moments to scones.

In short, here’s to Coffee & Confetti. All it stands for, although the name hasn’t changed, the sentiment in a sense has. It’s evolved, when I started this blog I never expected it to focus so much on reading or mental health. Yet it has. So the coffee aspect is a metaphor of sitting down to talk with others about mental health, with a coffee. Whilst the confetti is celebrating the good that’s all around us, add some glitter to someone’s card. Guaranteed you will get a text complaining about it, but with a secret smile.
