So yesterday, my life was changed. I had this incredibly beautiful tattoo done by the talented and kind @poppysmallhandstattoo and I couldn't of asked for anything more perfect. I'm so in love with it and still can't believe it's my arm! It took a lot to decide to move on from my self harm scars and have them covered. It was a journey but now that chapter is over. I have been given back so much long lost confidence and now instead of wanting to hide my arm all the time, I want to show it off! I'm so so happy and can't wait for the future. Thank you, poppy! πŸ’•#atattootochangeyourlife #tattoo #tattooed #pandatattoo #naturetattoo #floraltattoo #recoverytattoo #recovery #scarcoverup #scarcoveruptattoo #mentalhealth #mentalhealthrecovery #poppysmallhandstattoo #poppysmallhands #tattooartist #happy #beautiful #love

I smile because there are puppies, I smile because babies giggle and it's so damn innocent, I smile because there are kind hearts in the world, I smile because I have felt myself love and felt what it is to be loved, I smile because there is yummy things in the world like Nutella and pasta in the world, and I smile because I have a memory that I can store special moments and people in. Instead of counting the things to be sad about, count the reasons to smile! Because you're worth smiling. #smile #cheesypost #reasonstosmile #happy #love #appreciation #lgbt #brunette #makeup #blueeyes #love #heart

This time in two weeks, I will be a new person. I will have a recovery tattoo covering majority of my scars, by the most talented and precious tattoo artist I've ever come across. I can start a whole new life. No more self harm, no more bad decisions, no more negativity. Time to change MY life for ME. I'm so excited and through this difficult time, it's really helping me look forward and keep myself going! Bye bye scars πŸ‘‹#recovery #mentalhealth #mentalhealthrecovery #selfharmscars #scarcoverup #newchapter #newlife #tattoo #tattooartist #smile #makeup #brunette #blueeyes #lgbt #bpd #bpdrecovery #borderlinepersonalitydisorder

One day, the flame will go out. No time for regretting, or for forgetting. In your last moments, those things don't matter. It's who you love that truly matters. So stop holding back, stop regretting things in life, stop not doing things "just in case". Live your life whole heartedly, love mindlessly, and laugh loudly! #life #love #laugh #words #flame #photography #thoughtoftheday #noregrets

#mentalhealthawarenessday So I never thought I would make it to my 18th birthday, and here I am, 20 years old and still breathing! I'm not fully recovered but I'm a long way from where I used to be, and that makes me proud. It also means other people can do it too, the journey isn't easy and that's okay. It's okay to struggle. But what isn't okay is giving up your fight because you're worth more than that! Stay strong, everyone! #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawarenessweek #staystrong #recovery #recoveryispossible #selfworth #smile #journey #borderlinepersonalitydisorder #bpd

Haven't posted in a while but life has been hectic! I've started my new job at a big hospital in Surrey, been doing intense training and had some shifts on A+E majors. It's been good but exhausting as I'm not used to it all, but it's becoming real that I'm getting to where I want to be. I start college next week too, so I'll be doing both. I'm trying my best and that's all I can do. I have a lot of people to prove wrong but mostly myself. I've never believed in myself but so far I'm doing it, so if I do, I will prove myself wrong! I'd be lying if I said it is all easy, that I'm completely fine, but that's normal and I have people around me supporting me which is amazing. It's not often I post really positive things, but I'm glad I get to now 😊this is a new life! πŸ’•#life #work #job #newjob #newlife #positivity #positive #love #hospital #hospitalwork #healthcare #healthcareassistant #college #study #studying #student #proud #brunette #blueeyes #blueeyed #smile #lgbt #lgbtuk

I may have been born a long time ago, but my life has only just begun. I'm breaking free from my demons and getting to where I want to be. Trying to believe in myself and push myself to my limits. I may not be perfect, far from it in fact, but I'm being me πŸ’ͺ #life #movingforward #lifequotes #lifestylechange #demons #breakingfree #livingfree #believeinyourself #selfbelief #me #blueeyes #brunette #lgbt #lgbtuk

Basically these filters really make me want to dye my hair! Never dyed my hair before and the want for a chance in my hair is real. If only it didn't damage hair! #snapchat #snapchatfilters #filters #hairdye #haircolour #haircolor #love #blueeyes #lgbt #lgbtuk #lgbtproud #rainbow #rainbowhair

After days of craving bubble tea, I finally got some from my favourite bubble tea place! They said I was one of their original customers because I said I had one of their old loyalty cards haha! I usually go for a fruit based one but with my bad throat, I went for a milk one for the first time and I wasn't disappointed. I had honeydew milk with mango popping bubbles, it tasted like summer! They even have a cute message on the cup! Recommend this place to everyone! Super friendly too! #bubbletea #bubblecitea #bubbleciteaguildford #guildford #summer #summerdrink #drink #fun #love

If life falls apart, here is the recipe for glue that helps stick it back together: hope, dreams, determination, friends, family, and memories. Mix them all together and allow some time for the glue to work- length of time may vary but be patient 😊 #life #advice #future #positive #positivity #hope #Dreams #determination #friends #family #memories #mentalhealth #recovery #lgbt

Time to fight for my future. It's all in my hands now. Life is a game, I need to make the right moves next or it could be game over. #life #midnightthoughts #motivation #mentalhealth #recovery #future #LGBT #lgbtuk

It was my sisters first mothers day as a mother on Sunday, and this photo was taken on that day. I have to say, I couldn't be prouder of her! She's absolutely phenomenal, raising a baby, whilst also going to university! She's taken to being a mum, like a duck to water. What an amazing job she is doing and if in the future, I'm half the mum she is, my child/ren will be very lucky! So here's a post to say how proud I am to have her as a big sister, and a role model and I love her lots 😊 #sister #family #niece #love #proud #phenomenal #mum #newmum #familyphoto #motheranddaughter #smile

I can't believe she is one year old in 2 weeks! Where did all that time go? It feels like only a few months ago that I was in the hospital holding her when she was only minutes old! Such a bundle of happiness and sunshine, and I can't wait to spend some time with her soon, bond with her more and see how much she's grown! She's making me so proud and she's so beautiful! I love her so much, my niece πŸ’• #niece #family #smile #one #growingup #baby #babiesofinstagram #babysmile #love

I went to Vegfest 2017 Brighton on Sunday and it was amazing! The first photo is most of the things i got there, such as bacon, yogurts, chocolate, dog food, marinade, purse, jewelry, and then not pictured Buddha water, coconut water, vegan magazines and a few other bits...fair to say we enjoyed it 😊 me and my mum had a vegan kebab which is made from seitan which neither of us could finish haha! We also went to a talk there which was interesting! Then we went to the pier and went in the arcade, we won some tickets so we got a pencil and gave our left over tickets to a child to enjoy 😊 then on our way home I had to stop at grubbs burgers and have a vegetarian mushroom burger! Yummy πŸ˜‹ overall, a lovely trip and can't wait to hopefully do it all again next year! #vegfest #vegan #vegetarian #vegfestuk #vegfest2017 #vegfestbrighton #Brighton #veganfoodhaul #brightonpier #veganhaul
