The time is finally here. Season 2 of the hit Netflix series has officially been released and it does every thing right. There’s always a bit of worry when the first season of a show does incredibly well. There’s no doubt that the question of how the future of Stranger Things could ever live up to the standards it had set was on every fan’s mind. If you’ve managed to binge watch all new 9 episodes already then chances are that you have been left with a feeling of satisfaction and even greater anticipation for season 3. And yes, there will be spoilers in this post so read at your own discretion.

It’s been a while since I’ve written an album review but since The Front Bottoms released their 6th album ‘Going Grey’ last week I thought this would be the perfect time to get back into it. I’m still pretty new to TFB. My boyfriend introduced me to them a couple of months back and I’ve been listening to them quite a lot recently. It’s always great when you start listening to a new artist just before they release a new album!

Anorexia has one of the highest mortality rates out of all mental illnesses. I remember when I first read that I was stricken with both fear and the feeling that ‘it’d never happen to me.’ This fact was read at the beginning of my downward spiral with anorexia nervosa. I knew something was wrong and began to spend a lot of time scouring the web. To this day I don’t know what I was looking for. Maybe there was a sense of pride that I could relate to such symptoms. Maybe I was trying to find a way of getting help without having to address the problem directly to my parents. Either way my mental health deteriorated further despite my knowledge of the mortality rates.

I’ve written and spoken about my experience with anorexia a number of times already and will continue to write and speak about it until the day I die. Luckily the way I die will not be anything to do with the eating disorder. Some people aren’t at lucky though and that is one of the things that hurts my heart the most. I know the pain of living with such an illness and I know how difficult it is to come out of it the other end. However, I am living proof that it is possible and if you suspect that you are developing or living with an eating disorder then I encourage you to seek help as soon as possible. If my Mum hadn’t forced me to go to the doctor, if we left it a year later, a month later even, things may have ended up completely different to what they are now.

It’s been a while.

Over a year ago I started a new project, ‘DelishEllie.’ It was a blog that linked in with my foodie Instagram account and one that was solely focused on food with a bit of mental health here and there. However, as much as I love food I’ve grown a bit bored of just writing about that. Over the past few months I’ve found myself wanting to go back to writing about anything and everything. So, here I am. Reviving my old blog.

I am however going to keep ‘DelishEllie’ active and as more of a side project. I will continue to post on my Instagram account regularly and any food related posts will go onto my ‘DelishEllie’ blog. On here though you can expect to find film & TV reviews, album & gig reviews, my own personal thoughts on a whole variety of things and I am also hoping to incorporate more fashion posts as that is something I’ve gotten into a lot more over the past few months.
