Life without Anorexia

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

My life at the moment is completely different to how it once was. I spent 5 years sick with anorexia nervosia and depression as well as struggling with self harm and overexercising. I spent 2 years in different treatment centres.
And since 2012 i have been declared healthy from my eating disorder.

I have been blogging for 7 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 now blog about recovery, my life, veganism and positivity!

Why I love summer

Because it's warm and sunny!
The days are long and you feel more energized.
You can do more things.
You can wear shorts and crop tops.
Be outside more.
Run and walk in shorts and sports bras.
You get a tan.
You don't have to or need to wear make up.
I get freckles.
My hair looks blonder.
Spend time on the beach.
It's the season of barbecues.
More relaxed and don't feel as stressed
Lots of D vitamin = happier and more positive.
All the fresh berries and fruit
More freedom

And so much more!!

And things i dislike about summer:
Public transport is unreliable and barely works.... i.e they start fixing everything so suddenly it's just lots of buses that include 20-40 minutes waiting time and take forever to reach the destination. & It's warm and crowded and you end up standing on a warm bus, everyone is sweating and looking irritated!

There are barely any workers in the stores... i get this, who wants to work when it's warm. But there are barely any so there is no one to ask for help or you have to stand in line for a very long time. And then the person who is working is super grumpy and irritated.... and maybe it's just a bad day, but if i say 'hello' and smile or say 'have a good day' when i leave, atleast the person could be friendly back.

What are some things which you like/dislike about summer? :)


  1. I love not having to wear loads of layers of clothing!!

    I also love the heat and how sunlight just makes you feel happy - - I guess that I'm just not a winter person :)

  2. What i like about summer is that i can use my bike as transport instead of a car or bus! ;)

  3. Ice cream and cold showers, swimming in the lake and getting under waterfalls, the small breeze that makes the extreme heat bearable and makes your hair fly, beach barbecues and long nights by a campfire, star-gazing until dawn, holiday, all the colours look more vibrant, green trees, multi-coloured fruit, turquoise water. If I had to find something I dislike about summer it would be that it sets expectations too high for the other seasons ;) - Carine.

  4. I absolutely love lounging around in shorts and tank tops and eating cold desserts like ice cream without freezing. I do hate the bugs and having to turn the air conditioning on at night to be comfortable when I sleep.
