London – Day 2

London – Day 2

Our second day in London was a very chill one, we woke up early got our breakfast and headed to meet our family.

All we did was head out to the Camden Markets and look around, we spent most of the day going up and down looking at the stalls and shops. Most stalls were the same, literally same stuff different prices. We went into on shop and it was all vintage style and had the best light shades of the world, I couldn’t help but take a picture! They just looked amazing.

We did spent a good amount of time walking along the streets and of course it rained, so we were all got wet, around 1/2 o’clock we went back to Holborn to our hotels, as soon as we got back we went for some food in a fish and chip down along the streets in between our hotels. Soon as we finished we all went back to our own hotels and started to get ready for my dads cousins 60th birthday party which was in The Enterprise! It started at 7 and we didn’t even have a 5 minute walk to it which was great, but it was small enough and he was expecting a big crowd so in order to get a seat going early was the best option, so when I got back to my hotel, I relaxed for a bit then got a shower and dressed and put some makeup on, not much happened between then and the end of the party. Me and my mam left around half 10 because she wasn’t feeling well but my dad stayed till the end.

As soon as we got back all we did was get changed, remove makeup and go to bed haha!

So as I said a very chilled day.

Camden High Street.

We also went into a Mac store, which was so nice!

London – Day 1

London – Day 1

On January 19th 2018 I finally got on a plane left Ireland and started an adventure. We woke up at 2 a.m. to start our drive to Dublin, We arrived went through security and all that then sat down and waited for our flight to board. My first every time on a plane and it was amazing, the smile never left my face! We arrived in Gatwick Airport at around 7 a.m. We then had an hour and a half drive to our hotel, literally the longest car journey of my life! We finally arrived at our hotel.

We stayed at the Grange Holborn Hotel which is a five star in central London, definitely isn’t the best or my favourite hotel I’ve stayed in anyways!

After we checked in ad dropped our bags to our room, we waited there for a little while for the rest of our family to come. They came to meet us at our hotel and we walked to a shopping centre, called Bloomsbury Shopping Centre. It was our frist day and we were getting to know the area we were in so we kind of just went with it and popped into any place we seen,  they had some lovely shops! Then as we finished looking around the shops we went for food, in this little bar on the side of the street know as the Holiday Inn. The food was amazing and the bar interior was lovely, all vintage themed.

Once we finished our food, we started walking down along the street where the bar was located and my two cousins came across a shop with a sign for the hop on hop off bus, so we decided to go in and buy 48h tickets because there was three different routes, the green, red & blue. We planned on doing one that day and then the other two the next, so we just went with whatever one came first nd that was the green route which was the Camden Loop. Which was the route non of us wanted to really go on haha and it was the shortest! It featured four stops Camden High Street, British Museum, Camden Markets & Sicilian Avenue.

As soon as we got off the bus we jumped into my Mam and dad who had just came from Gregg’s, we then continued on to the Premier Inn where all our family was staying expect us. We then went into The Enterprise, which was a bar beside their hotel where my uncle was in on his own so me, my parents and my cousin joined him. Not even 10 minutes later my two aunties and my dads cousins wife who is from London walked in and asked me, my Mam and cousin to the Disney store, so we went thinking we’ll be about a half an hour or so because we thought it was like just down the road and we were very wrong! Frist we went to the Holborn train station to get Oyster card for getting around, we got on a bus and headed to Oxford Street which was amazing, the streets were full of big and amazing shops but sadly we didn’t get around to all of them but what we did see was great! I’ll have to go back and just spend a whole day shopping there. We went around to a few shops and then everyone was getting tired so we got the tube back, me and my Mam went back to our hotel to my dad while the rest went to their hotel, later they went to the bar in their hotel and we soon went to meet them there for about an hour then we just went back to our hotel and went to bed early to get an early start the next day.

Life With Constant Pain At 15


What is pain?

Is it a feeling or a thought? Dose it exist if you can’t see the pain?

I am in pain every day of my life for nearly 4 years, although it isn’t as visible as a broken arm or leg, that doesn’t mean it’s non-existing. In those 4 years I spend the first year ignoring the pain, i acted as if it wasnt there until it got to a point where hiding it wasnt an option. The following 2 years i spent in pain and very unhappy, i spent most of my time at doctors and hospital appointments and they all told me they couldn’t see a problem and said it was just anxiety. With all the pain and appointments i missed a lot of school, everyday i would have to go in and explain myself to the principles, teachers and students and for what? them to all turn around and tell me i was lying? i was never in pain or suffered in any way, to them i didn’t want to go to school and all my pains were a joke and not real. They would ask why weren’t you in? id reply i was sick, ahh yeah “sick”. These were people i called my friends, but they weren’t really, they were only friends so they would have someone to sit with at lunch or go to town with, they never really cared. I once went to my school office 3 times in one day asking to call my Mam to go home and they wouldn’t let me, i was crying in the bathroom in so much pain calling my Mam off my own phone and within seconds no joke my mam and dad were there and when she arrived the principal was nowhere to be seen. The school would compare me to others with sickness saying they had it worse than me and they never knew anything about me or my pain yet they could tell me someone had it worse than me. They couldn’t feel or see my pain which made them believe it wasnt there and it wasnt real but it was very much real.

I spend every second of everyday in pain, yes it affects my life but that doesn’t mean i cant do anything with it. Every day the pain in there just some days it’s very faded and others it unbearable. One day i could run for hours then the next i could be crying and not able to move from my bed, but like everything you’ve the good and the bad days. Yes i may be able to do things, like travel and enjoy concerts because its stuff i love to do and I don’t give into the pain but some days it’s so bad I have to give in which has sometimes stopped me from going and doing the things I love, there is only so much your body can take.

Now I have yet to be diagnosed but the doctors are heading to me having Fibromyalgia like my mother.

Lady Gaga, its amazing how she dances and get on stage and doesn’t stop doing what she loves because of her pains. She is and always will be an inspiration.


And for the 4th year of me being in pain, I left school, started homeschooling and my journey of blogging, ive cut all the negative people out of my life, doing what I wanna do regardless of what others think, all thanks to my Mam & Dad and i couldn’t be happier.
