Why This Blog?

I initially started this blog for catharsis. Learning to love the body that cancer left me with. There’s nothing like facing your own mortality to put things into perspective; to know what you really want. But now, I’m fine. I’m happy in my skin (apart from needing to lose a few pounds!). The majority of old posts I’ve deleted or hidden as they’re not relevant anymore. The ones I’ve kept are there just in case I ever need a kick!

And now? To share my passions. To prove that not all female Gen Xers like mobile puzzle games. At this time, Divinity: Original Sin II is my game of choice.

NB: I will only ever recommend brands that I love and believe in.
