I’m in heaven
Promise I’m not just lounging by the pool all day everyday doing nada 🤷🏻♂️
Remember when I worked a 9-6 job, doing a degree I hated, waiting to live my life on the basis of a boyfriend... 2018 you changed my life, 8 different countries later and I’m focusing on me ✌🏼
Getting lost and not even trying to find myself
Good morning Bali 👋🏼 I’m like a kid in a sweet shop at the moment because I’ve wanted to come to Bali for a year and now HERE I AM 😀
Insecure but I’m working with it
So it’s time to say our goodbyes 💔 Never did I think I’d meet someone who was so far opposite to me, yet so alike me all rolled into one, but somewhere between Louisiana and London it works. You call me out on my sh*t, wipe my tears when I’m crying outside of tea gardens and make me laugh constantly. I couldn’t want more in a friend. Our friendship has been short lived but we already have so many memories. From our dance routines, to just generally going around and wanting to f*ck sh*t up, you’ve made my experience in Australia incredible. I can’t believe you’re leaving me and I’m defo still hoping you lose your passport somewhere between now and tomorrow morning so I can keep you forever. You are my soul mate. I defo wouldn’t find someone like you in London. It’s always a video. Can’t wait to see where we meet again. Love u. Miss u 💖💖💖
So I turned 22 last week but didn’t celebrate it cos jet lag was a bitch, so here I am celebrating a week later ✌🏼2️⃣2️⃣ also...does this mean I have to grow up yet because I’m defo not ready 😏
Sydney bound ✈️ first stop Kuala Lumpur! Looking forward to going back to build my tan back up and enjoying the Sydney sunshine, not really looking forward to the 28 hour journey lol. Also, why does this pic look incredibly photoshopped?!?
London you have my heart ❤️ particularly at Christmas ❄️
Gone from one extreme of weather to the other 😂😂😂 today is the FIRST day my jet lag hasn’t been killing me and I leave in 48 hours lollll. But the jet lag was so worth seeing my family after 6 months and tonight I get to see my gals 💖 (p.s. selfie taken in my old room, that my sister now thinks is her room so has covered it in tacky NME posters, but it’s defo still my room. Just you wait...)
Alexa...play “I get around” by the beach boys 💃🏻 just landed in Heathrow and I cried because I’m HOMEEEEE!!! But here’s some snaps before the tiredness kicked in and the painkillers wore off. FYI don’t travel for 28 hours with a virus 😩😩😩
So the first part of my Australian adventure is coming to an end. What an interesting, challenging, at times painful and at others beautiful chapter of life. From experiencing heartache to sickness, there’s something just a bit different when you’re dealing with it on the other side of the world. Going through ups and downs is just part of the whole experience, instead of ostracising and rejecting those feelings, I learnt to love them and realise that everything is momentary. I learnt that happiness and sadness are not mutually exclusive and in order to experience true happiness, you’ve got to also experience true sadness. I learnt how sometimes my emotions being loud was an inconvenience for some, that they found me too intense or at times crazy. I learnt that I am also entitled to those emotions and those feelings. When I arrived here by myself, I remember my friend telling me to take every opportunity, for him that meant jumping out of an airplane, that’s what made him grow and be brave. For me, my bravery was allowing myself to feel those emotions because for years as a child, I never allowed myself to, allowing myself to cry because I was hurt, allowing myself to also communicate that hurt to someone in a way that I’d felt constructive and dealing with the rejection of them simply not understanding my hurt. I feel brave for allowing myself to keep going and not being afraid to continue trying despite things that were happening. In the midst of the pain I gradually found this beautiful peacefulness within myself and who I am as a person. I became more accepting of my flaws and my weaknesses and learnt that other people’s actions and ill-behaviour towards is not a reflection of you, your self worth or your character. In fact the opposite, it’s their sh*t that they have to deal with, sometimes it’s just not about you. I also learnt that no matter what you’re going through, there is nothing going and swimming in the sea can’t fix. I also learnt that wine and some good girlfriends can fix a lot too! I’m grateful for the journey, the ups, downs, beautiful and ugly. I’m excited for what else the universe has in store for me. She’s growing and she’s grateful 🖤
Have a picture from ages ago because my current situation isn’t as pretty. Currently in bed with a virus, no appetite, high temperature, crying every two seconds, wondering if I can really do a 28 hour flight tomorrow 😩😩😩 let’s see what tomorrow brings...
No stress in the world 🌍 (p.s. ignore all the random tan lines)
Rule #1 never beg anyone to fuck with you. Give the right people your 100% and they’ll give it back. Your time and energy is precious, not everyone deserves it, learn to value and respect it - anyone who’s worth it will do so too. Don’t wait for people who aren’t there when there are others who are 💞
Can you handle this? (The food not me hun)
Grateful for my ex but thank u, next.
Forget that boy, I'm over it
Come on Barbie, let’s go party 💖💅🏻🎀💁🏼♀️💄

Let me tell you why you're special...
You need a girl like me 🌹 (p.s. the sun is FINALLY out in Sydney, only took the past 6 months. Here's to the year I had two winters lolllll)
