12 Easter Themed Phone Wallpapers


As Easter is just around the corner, I thought I'd compile a list of some of the cutest Easter themed wallpapers for your phone! Having mini eggs as my phone's background will definitely do nothing for that diet I keep telling myself I'm going to start soon but I'm going to do it anyway, obvs. I hope you all have a lovely Easter weekend, whatever you end up doing!

Annihilation (2018) Film Review


A
nnihilation
 (2018) follows Lena (Natalie Portman), a biology professor at Johns Hopkins, who's mourning the loss of her military husband, Kane (Oscar Isaac) who never returned from a top secret mission. A year on from his strange disappearance, he returns home, but something is very different about him; he doesn't remember anything about the mission he underwent and then he starts coughing up blood... It isn't long until they're both taken to Area X and Lena learns that Kane has been inside the 'Shimmer' - a visually beautiful, translucent dome that formed around a lighthouse three years ago. Scientists are eager to discover what's inside but anyone that's attempted to find out, never returns - that is, apart from Kane. In the hopes of finding out what has happened to her husband and maybe even cure him, Lena volunteers to join Josie (Tessa Thompson), Dr. Ventress (Jennifer Jason Leigh), Anya (Gina Rodriguez) and Sheppard (Tuva Novotny) on the all-female expedition into "The Shimmer".

Seeking Help For A Mental Health Issue


Before I start, I just want to take a moment to thank everyone who took the time to read and support my last blog post where I shared my mental health story, I'm so grateful! Today's post is the second in my mental health series and I thought today, we should talk about how to seek help when you're struggling with your mental health, and the process of what will happen when you do. I think one of the reasons I took so long to seek help was because I wasn't entirely sure what would happen or if I'd be taken seriously and then I'd overthink the situation so much, and convince myself not to go. Although getting help won't be the easiest experience, it will be so rewarding, I promise.
