Woah, I'm back with my second post within a week, am I alright? I'm not too sure. Though, I definitely want to get back on track with my little ol' blog. It's been over 5 years since I wrote my first post, so after slacking the past year with it I'm actually kinda mad at myself. I wanted to get back to writing about subjects I feel I can help with, something I can put my input into with passion behind it all. I miss talking about destinations I'm desperate to travel to, or sharing my favourite festival line ups of the year.

Like most others, I was 16 when I first started the contraceptive pill. Being so young I just wanted the popular option of protecting myself from getting pregnant, I wanted what my friends were on, I wanted something easy. I didn’t really know how it worked to be honest, let alone the effect it might have over my mind and body.

I'm fully aware that people have different experiences with the pill, each woman's body works differently, and that there are plenty of different options to choose from. People can find the pill beneficial for many reasons, but over time I realised that this option of contraception just wasn’t for me. Other alternatives such as the injection, implant and coil really didn’t appeal to me either. After 4 years of a few pill changes, pains, weight changes, & handling some of the craziest mood swings, I decided to come off of the pill to give my body a break. After just a few weeks, I felt like a different person. As extreme as it may sound, It felt as if somebody had lifted the lid on my life and I was able to start living freely again. I didn’t realise until I wasn’t taking those pills any more the real effect they were having on my everyday life. My whole outlook had changed.

Boardmasters, a festival that's always tickled my fancy over the years! When Visa invited me along with them this year, I was beyond excited.

It's been a couple of months since I've returned home from my Trek America trip, so I've definitely been reflecting on some of my highlights from my experience! I'd love to share these with you, since I feel so incredibly grateful to have these memories with me. If you didn't already know, I embarked on a 10 day adventure with Trek America in May, on their Deep South BLT tour! It was out of this world, and has made me fall in love with America even more.

Now, as some of you may know, I like to travel alone. If not alone, then definitely with a partner or a friend. Although when I embarked on my Trek America road trip earlier this year, I wasn't sure if I would survive being around a lot of people, almost 24.7. I can safely say it's 2 months later and I definitely survived, AND LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT!
