Isn’t it crazy how you can smile and the whole world suddenly believes that you are happy? Nobody notices that you’re crying, kicking and screaming, inside. Isn’t it crazy that you can know someone, inside out, and yet you can not tell if you are making that person happy. Isn’t it crazy how you can loathe yourself so much and yet manage to get through the day?..
I don’t know what’s been up with me over the past few days; but I’ve been down – really down. And I’m scared. I know how I felt at my absolute worst and I do not ever want to go back to that dark place. I don’t want to be alone again.
I feel alone.
I’m here, on my little corner of the internet, talking to myself. I don’t know who to talk to; who to turn to: So I write. Writing makes me feel better.
Isn’t it crazy how your nearest and dearest don’t notice you falling apart inside? Isn’t it crazy that there is a whole big world out there – full of people – and yet one can feel so isolated? Isn’t it crazy that Depression and Anxiety can become you? Consume you?
Let me ask you this, I took this picture 5 minutes ago (before I sat down to let these words flow from my soul), does this girl look like she is doing OK? Does she look happy? Would you pass this girl on the street and believe that she was feeling the lowest she had ever felt? I know I wouldn’t.
Behind this smile is everything you will never understand.
– For anyone who reads/acknowledges this piece of gibberish that I just wrote, please leave me a comment and say hello, sometimes it’s just nice to know people are there.
FIND ME ON:
I was kindly invited along to a bloggers event (my first one, if I’m being more pedantic) held by Supercuts – in St Rollox, Glasgow. The main reason for this event was to promote Supercuts current competition: #SquadGoals (Click HERE to read all about the ins & outs of the competition and how YOU can enter).
If you win the #SquadGoals competition you will be whisked away to a studio in London for a hair and beauty makeover (from the Supercuts styling team, of course) and you will receive a goody bag of TIGI products to take home with you. Added to this, you will also receive an exclusive photoshoot AND an overnight stay in the capital city; what have you got to lose? Definitely check out the link I shared above and get involved: You’ve got to be in it to win it!
I guess the reason you are reading this is because you’re eager to know how I got on at the Supercuts Bloggers Event so let me get down to the nitty gritty: It was my very first bloggers event so, yeah, I was pretty much a nervous wreck. I had asked if I could perhaps take a friend along with me but I was told as there was only limited spaces available that I had to go alone. (Oh well, I thought, at least there will be Prosecco there to calm my nerves).
As I entered the room and looked around, I saw 3 other girls getting pampered, and so I assumed that these girls were the other bloggers. They were sipping on Prosecco and eating nibbles (the pros of being a blogger, right)? I was welcomed by one of the hairdressers who was very friendly and offered me some of what the other girls were having! The craziest thing happened: I got chatting to one of the other bloggers, who was really sweet, and we went to follow one another on social media but… SHE ALREADY FOLLOWED ME! She knew who I was and she already followed me – how mad is that? I felt like a celebrity for a moment, ha ha!
Anyway, the lady who was doing my hair was called Karen and she immediately made me feel comfortable and chatted away to me and talked me through what she was doing. I felt like a queen – sitting there with my Prosecco getting my hair done for me – I wasn’t used to this sort of treatment. Karen went for a hair-up style for me which I didn’t mind as it is very seldom I wear my hair up so it was nice for a change. Afterwards, we took lots of pictures and we were allowed to roam around with our cameras and do our thing!
Before leaving, we were each given a goody bag of TIGI products, courtesy of Supercuts! Thank you so much for the goodies!
It was such a pleasant evening and it was a very positive first experience of a Blogger Event; I can not wait for the next one!
Have you ever been to Supercuts before? Have you ever used TIGI products? What was your first blogger event? I would love to hear from you!
Until next time

For those of you who know me: You will know how much of a Coronation Street fan I am. I’ve loved Corrie ever since I can remember. So I was absolutely thrilled when I received a present for my birthday from my lovely friend, Megan, telling me that we were going to be attending the Coronation Street Set Tour in the SECC in Glasgow.
