Fact of the Saturday – Health Reality or Unhealthy Myth?

Think that having a wax is painful, but in the end its worth it because you feel beautiful? Well, what if I told you that both a Bikini or a Brazilian Wax could give you a Sexually Transmitted Infection?

How is that possible?

Well, this is caused by your skin creating micro-tears, if it makes contact with viruses (that can squeeze through). This can possibly happen if you have already made contact with a partner or stranger/s.

Signs of these include redness, inflammation, peeling and bleeding.

Even though waxing itself is safe, it’s never a good idea to make sexual contact on the same day as you have had a wax or if your skin is suffering irritation from the process – best to leave it one day after or decide not to have contact if the irritation is still there. Better to be safe than sorry.

Why Do I Struggle With Love? – A Single Confession from An Early Twenty Year Old…

Have you ever thought to yourself – Love is extremely hard? Well, your not alone – I’m in the same boat too.

When I think on life and love, I simply think of these two quotes:



Now, I may or may not know people who will think of the same thing but I have a feeling every single person will have difficulty in finding what they desire – love.

The last time that I wrote about love was a month ago (Really? Wow!). During that time, I was speaking to the first guy I spoke to on WhatsApp after we agreed to speak to each other on the social networking site. However, I think something went wrong because after two weeks, he stopped contacting me altogether.

For while, I was feeling lost until I made a wonderful new friend who lives all the way in Italy. He’s very friendly and has an amazing personality.

I also made and kept in contact with another friend while I was away on holiday (but this one is a girl).

I am very happy and feel blessed to have the chances to have two, amazing friendships; I hope that they will bring good fortune will bring into it in the future.

As for love – I’m not too sure right now.

All my life, I’ve had difficulty to socially “fit in” because of my Autism. This made me lose my confidence and I wasn’t sure if I might receive such amazing friends around my age group, like I’ve been given now. And if I had friendships with others (at school, that is), they always end with no explanation. However, I never give up on friendships or love itself. I may feel like a total wreck when I think negativity, but is it really worth thinking of the past about others who have really let you down?

So, have any of you guys made friends online (and haven’t met them yet)? If so, how did they go? Where did they end up going? And is it true that friendships can lead to love? Please let me know in the comments section below – I would love to hear from you guys. 🙂

P.S. And to round off the article, I will leave you on another quote:


And speaking of love, I have included a link of an article, I just reblogged this morning – this article is written by the great Ramen & Inglenook, one of my fantastic followers. This article is great for those who have long distance love relationships (and friends). So, I have included a link down below:

The Late Monday Travel Song

Welcome to Monday Travel Songs. In this instalment, I’ll be posting every Monday (or after – I’m not usually brilliant at following my schedules) and share geographic songs from all over the world. 

This is my first post, so I’ll be starting off my musical journey up north – from Edinburgh to the Highlands.  

Week Number One – Smaointe by Enya (Link: http://youtu.be/ZwwotBh7n8Q)

Lyric Translation 


Listen to my heart. 

So sad forever;  

I am lost without you 

And your wife, 

The great love in your life. 

She guided me. 

Both of you, be with me always, 

Day and night. 



I cry at the great loneliness 

Tears, so sad, 

And you sleeping in the quiet, green grave 

In deep peace.  


There was happiness, 

But it went away. 

You followed your husband, 

The great love in your life. 

He guided me. 

Both of you, be with me always, 

Day and night. 



I cry at the great loneliness 

Tears, so sad, 

And you sleeping in the quiet, green grave 

In deep peace.  


I think of the day 

That you were at my side 

Telling stories 

Of the days that were. 

I remember the day, 

Without want and without gloom. 

Both of you, be with me always, 

Day and night.

About the Song
Smaointe is about Maragallen Beach, where a disaster occurred during a service day; a giant wave came in, destroying the small church and its graveyard. All inside were perished. 

In the same graveyard, Enya’s grandparents are buried. This song explains Enya’s childhood memories of the beach, her thoughts of grandparents and her reponse to her reflections. 

The word Smaointe means ‘thoughts’. As for the song, it was first released as an ‘Orinoco Flow’ b-side, with a different title – Smaoitím…

Why Did I Choose This Song?

Scotland is a part of me, as my father and generations of his family lived all over the country (dating from as early as the 18th century). This, beautiful, moving song is a crowning jewel as it dedicates the loss and love of family, in spirit and memory. It reminds us how strong we are with our emotions, but how weak we’re feeling when the ones who we are closet to are no longer with us.
Now, it’s over to you. What’s your favourite from Scotland and why? What part of the world would you like for me to go next Monday? Please let me know in the comments below. 😊
