Finding Myself at 20

Finding Myself at 20

My entire perspective changed with a small act of kindness. A complete stranger, as her good deed for the day, paid for my meal at the McDonald's drive thru a few weeks ago. She didn't know what I was ordering, I could have ordered food for 10 people for all she knew. But, that lady [...]

Keep Up With Me If You Can!

Keep Up With Me If You Can!

The last time I wrote an article like this on Sincerely, E was June 2018. Maybe you’re intrigued by the life of someone who works full-time/runs a business/writes on a blog/studies at uni, which is why you’re reading what I have to say. Maybe you like the style I write in - I call it [...]

Five Skincare Products That Saved Me (And My Face)

Five Skincare Products That Saved Me (And My Face)

The one thing I love even more than my make-up... is my skincare. That satisfying and refreshing feeling of washing all the heavy make-up from my skin, looking like a panda for a few minutes, using my favourite oils, moisturisers and masks, and leaving a nice ring of orange make-up around the white bathroom sink. [...]

It’s My Party and I’ll Stay Sober If I Want To

It’s My Party and I’ll Stay Sober If I Want To

"Come on, just have one drink!" "Have a shot! It won't kill you!" "Why are you always such a party-pooper? "Stop being so BORING." Scribbling notes in my favourite note pad one day (I do this every day FYI), I started taking note of the things people had said to me on a night out [...]

“I’d Like a Cheeseburger, Large Fries and a Cosmopolitan”

“I’d Like a Cheeseburger, Large Fries and a Cosmopolitan”

Long time no typing, little blog of mine. What's new with you? Nice new layout you've got there, and is that a new logo I see, too? You've been busy while I've been gone, haven't you! What's new with me? It's about time you asked.. Where to begin... first of all - where the f**k [...]

Even My Anxiety Has Anxiety: Part Two

Even My Anxiety Has Anxiety: Part Two

It starts in my hands – tingling with pins and needles until I lose the ability to move them. I watch them twitch as they hang immobile by my side. Breathing becomes hard, as if my lungs instantly lose the capacity to circulate air – they’ve given up on keeping me alive. Then it stops. I've [...]

The Girl Who Wears My Shoes

The Girl Who Wears My Shoes

I have never been a firm believer in New Year's Resolutions - I have goals, sure - but they're not specific to when the clock strikes 12 on the last day of the year. Instead, I decided to stop thinking I would reach my goals 'one day', and made today 'day one'. The last two [...]

The Internet is a Pint-Sized Blogger’s Best Friend

The Internet is a Pint-Sized Blogger’s Best Friend

To think I was a mere 12 years of age when I discovered this unfamiliar online portal that allowed me to interact with the world. I knew nothing about writing decent content or how to interact with other users. Social media was fresh communication for me - my friends had just started getting the hang [...]

Confessions of a Procrastination Junkie

Confessions of a Procrastination Junkie

Did anyone else blink and miss all of 2017, or was that just me? I vaguely recall doing some online shopping, voting YES in the Marriage Equality Postal Survey, reading some books, and watching Donald Trump make some questionable decisions whilst in charge of America. Somewhere mid-blink, I lost my passion to be organised, motivated, [...]

The Time I Met The Love of My Life

The Time I Met The Love of My Life

Is there such a thing as one great love? Or do people have more than that? I suppose you could say "we met at just the right time", or that "fate brought us together", but I don't believe in that. I think we stumbled across each other (we literally stumbled across each other at the local bar) [...]
