Life without Anorexia

My motto is
'Dont let the sadness of your past & the fear of your future ruin the happiness of your present'

I am a generally happy girl who loves running, going to the gym and eating food!! Though my life has been very different.
I spent 5 years sick with anorexia nervosia & purging tendencies & over exercising. I was depressed and self harmed. I spent 2 years in different treatment centres.
After alot of struggles, lots of ups and downs, suicide attempts, tears, anxiety, panic and never thinking i would be healthy.
I am now declared healthy from anorexia nervosia.

I have been blogging for 4 years, and my whole journey is written in my posts. I now represent healthy and happiness. I want to show anyone struggling that it is possible to recover, no matter how hard it may seem.

I am happy and healthy and living my life. Going to school, meeting friends and trying to find myself in this world.

I write about my daily life, but also try to write posts about how it was when i was sick, advice and tips.
I am open and friendly, so dont be scared about writing a post or sending me an email at:

S'mores bars recipe

S’mores Bars
Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Yield: 12 bars
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup fine graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 (4.4 oz) milk chocolate XL Hershey Bars
  • 1 (7 oz) jar marshmallow creme
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and 8 by 8-inch baking dish and line with two sheets of parchment paper, leaving a slight over hang on each side, and butter paper (if you don't care to lift the bars out in one, for easier cutting, you can just butter the baking dish without lining).
  • In a mixing bowl whisk together flour, graham crack crumbs, baking soda and salt for 20 seconds, set aside. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, blend together butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until creamy. Mix in egg and vanilla extract. With mixer set on low speed, slowly add in dry ingredients and mix until combined.
  • Divide dough in half and press one half of the dough into an even layer in the bottom of prepared baking dish. Place chocolate side by side over dough layer. Top chocolate with marshmallow fluff, spreading into an even layer. Take about golf ball size pieces of remaining dough and flatten into small shingles and layer side by side over marshmallow fluff (work to keep any of the fluff from showing through). Bake in preheated oven 27 - 30 minutes until top is lightly golden brown. Cool completely on a wire rack before cutting into squares (use parchment overhang to lift bars from pan before cutting. I recommend cutting just before serving as the filling will being to run a little). Store in an airtight container.
