Jesy Nelson 'Odd One Out'

If you have looked at social media recently you will be aware that Little Mix's Jesy Nelson has made a documentary about her struggle with mental health issues due to trolls and social media. I am always grateful when people in the public eye with such a big influence speak out about their struggles with their mental health because I do think it helps people be more understanding and helps to reduce the stigma around mental health and mental illness. This documentary was a surprise to me because as a fans, we think we know everything about them and tend to forget they have a private life which we know nothing about. None of us had any clue what Jesy was going through because she put on such a good happy face when she had to.

Attending gigs alone with anxiety

Going to gigs alone seems like a horrifying thing to do and trust me it felt so for me at first but once you're there and the artist is on stage your anxiety shifts into excitement and enjoyment. I first went to a gig alone when no one which I knew was going to see who I wanted to see. It was such a huge deal for me as I'd only recently started to feel comfortable(ish) going out of the house on my own.

There have been so many times when I thought about not going to these gigs and selling my ticket but I know I'd be upset and annoyed with myself if I missed out.

August Playlist

I listen to a lot of music so I thought I'd start a monthly series on my blog where I create a playlist of songs I've been loving throughout the month. They won't always be new songs either, they'll just be songs I've been listening to a lot. 

I listen to all my music on Spotify premium so any links I post will take you to there however I'm sure you can find these songs on any other streaming service.
