Some years ago I was shopping with my mom and I came across a birthday card with a sequence of three pictures of a giraffe on it. In the top picture, the giraffe had just arrived at a party and had eagerly knocked on the door, holding a present and card. In the second picture, the birthday boy (who happened to be a lion) had squeezed all the other animals behind the door and opened it to tell the giraffe that there was, in fact, no party. And in the last picture, the lion had shut the door and the party had resumed, and the giraffe was walking sadly away from the door. As humorous as this card was probably intended to be, it nearly reduced eleven year old me to tears- I hated the idea of that poor giraffe being turned away because no one liked him enough to invite him to the party.
I still hate the loneliness that the giraffe on the card felt, but what I hate even more is that I’m surrounded by girls- real girls, not cartoon giraffes- to whom loneliness is so real and so painful.
So here it is: this one is for the girl who feels alone.

This week is mental health awareness week and in England, 1 in 4 people suffer with mental health conditions each year. Friend, that is a lot of people. It could be the man next to you on the bus; the woman who bagged your groceries; your sibling or you friend. For so, so many people, mental health is a real and raw struggle- it is painful and heavy and exhausting.

Friends, there is no doubt about it: spring is most certainly in full swing here in London! Trees everywhere are blossoming into pastel shades of pink and white. Bluebells and tulips are pushing their way up out of the ground and into the light. The sun rises early and shines over the early-morning dew on the grass, making everything look golden. And it’s beginning to get just a little bit warmer too!

There must be something more than this.
Have you ever thought that to yourself?
Have you ever thought that there must be something… anything, more than this half-hearted life you’re existing in? Something more exciting than the mundane 9-to-5 routine that you follow, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year? Something more adventurous than the route you walk to school or work every day? Something more meaningful than the state in which you’re existing?

Friend, I am SO excited about today’s post… I’ve been working on it for absolutely ages and finally, I can bring you the … (drumroll please)
If you’ve followed along with me on my blog for any amount of time, you’ve probably caught on to the fact that I honestly can’t get enough smoothies! They are just SO GOOD!
In fact, if I could have access to every fruit in the world and experiment with different blended combinations of them every single breakfast, I 100% would! But, somewhat ironically, today’s post is about exactly the opposite!
