HEY! I’M STACY
I’m a traveller, writer and soon-to-be first time mum. I am totally obsessed with road trips, my new puppy Ruby, good food, anything wine-related and love nothing more than curling up with a good book for a few hours.
I’m learning to live life a little more slowly and am determined to create the most lovely life possible despite struggling with depression, anxiety and an eating disorder. I hope to inspire you to do the same.
I started this blog a few years back when I was in the middle of a multi-year jaunt around the World. It was meant to chronicle my travels and my quest to become ‘location independent’.
However, somewhere along the way depression caught up with me and swept the World from beneath my feet. After 12 months of trying to manage it myself while continuing to travel I finally gave it up, put away my backpack and moved back to the UK to focus on getting better.
My perspective on life has changed a little since then. I realised that I had spent a lot of my life running away, trying to find the next place or the next thing to make me happy, never realising that happiness needed to start within myself first.
I still love to travel and I want my future to involve lots of different countries and cities. But I now realise that I don’t need that to make me happy. I also know that I will never be happy doing anything until I am happy within myself, in the here and now.
So that brings me to now…
I’m not sure whether I will ever be fully rid of my depression. However, I believe that it is still possible to live a damn amazing life even if you are struggling with your mental health. A life full of health, happiness, travel, good food and all the other lovely things.
That is what this blog is about. A lifestyle blog with a focus on staying mentally healthy, loving yourself, practising self care and inspiring you to live your most wonderful life even if you have depression or anxiety or struggle with low self esteem.
