#VDAYSUX: Closing Address

Post 13 of 13 Another successful blogathon comes to an end. I hope you enjoyed this little foray into creativity for me. I enjoyed creating the content, and sourcing the media, and just being able to post consistently. 2017 was completely bonkers for me, so doing VDAYSUX meant cleaning the slate, buckling down, and making…

Self-care ideas

Post 7 of 13 Self-care is so important nowadays. I know, it sounds like I’m merely parroting what other people say, but sometimes, you just have to do you. Listen to that one song. Repeat.
