Is He Actually Into Me? 6 Signs He's Really Not That Into You.

Without sounding bitchy or cruel, if you're currently questioning whether "bae" is into you - then he's probably not. You're a queen and if the person you're seeing doesn't appreciate you enough for you to think "haha yeah of course he's into me" immediately after reading the title, you may need to call it quits. 
Don't get me wrong, some girls (myself included) like to question relationships just to hear what you want to hear. I genuinely see myself being happily married 20 years and asking my husband if he actually loves me in the style of the hilarious meme below.

Loving Myself & Gaining Self-Confidence

abby qtiwa Loving Myself and Gaining Self-Confidence
Hi! Firstly, I'd like to thank you for stopping by. I really wasn't sure whether to write this post but I thought why the hell not, I know I'm not the only one who feels this way. It is a bit of a touchy subject and the last time I spoke to one of my closest friends about self love it brought me to tears buuuuuuuut I'm not here to write about that. I want to talk about how I've been learning to love myself (it's going pretty well!)

*Tacky cliché saying coming up* ... self confidence is a journey (lol but true)! I still do get shy and unless I've known you forever I probably won't be as annoying and as out there as I am with my immediate family and closest friends. With all that being said I do feel as if I've come a long way, I am soft spoken, I do keep myself to myself but I no longer let that be mistaken for low self esteem/confidence. Ok, moving on - I'm going to list a few things that have helped me gain confidence and l-o-v-e m-e.

The Iris @ NOW Gallery
I went to see the falling flower installation a few days ago, straight after work. The exhibition closes at 7pm during the week, I arrived at 6:15pm so I was pressed for time. I spent just under an hour staring at the hanging, dying flowers, all 10,000 of them. I really wish I visited on the first day as well as recently, that way I could've seen the difference and change.
The Iris is a piece by Rebecca Louise Law, she's know for her use of organic material, in a sculptural and painterly fashion. There's a really cute story behind why she picked this specific flower - are you read? Well, she discovered that the land that the NOW Gallery sits on was once a wetland of tidal marshes, previously known as ‘Bugsby’s’ and ‘Greenwich’ Marsh. And of course from her research she decided to create an installation that embraces the present and the past, HOW CUTE!

7 Things To Do In Bali

7 things to do in bali

I was so unsure about what I wanted to do after graduating university, it was either stay in London working in retail part-time whilst finishing my internship or move back home (Manchester) and look for a graduate job without worrying about my part-time hours on minimum wage keeping me afloat month after month! As It was I was so stressed with my dissertation deadline getting closer and closer, staying up ‘til 6 in the morning researching. Don’t get me wrong I ADORED my dissertation topic but it was hard work.

Hello Art Lovers! Thanks to my timeout app, I was able to get in line at the Victoria Miro Gallery to see what might be the most detailed handmade installation ever. Yes. Ever.

teamLab Transcending Boundaries Exhibition

Hello and welcome to my blog!
I didn't want to bore anyone with a post explaining what to expect and why I started doing this yadda yadda yadda, that's what my about me page is for.

Straight to the post. For a long while I have been obsessed with teamLab and their breathtaking exhibitions. So when I was notified that they're having a two month pop-up in London I HAD to be there! There are a few slots available, feel free to book here before it's all over. I knew I'd be in awe and would want to do it all over again, so I booked twice *clever*.
