About Me

No comments:


I'm Elly, a wonderfully weird 29-year-old...and I feel this quote sums me up perfectly:

I hate small talk. I want to talk about atoms, death, aliens, sex, magic, intellect, the meaning of life, faraway galaxies, music that makes you feel different, memories, the lies you've told, your flaws,your favourite scents, your childhood, what keeps you up at night, your insecurities and fears. I like people with depth, who speak with emotion from a twisted mind. I don't just want to know "what's up?" (author unknown)
This blog is my open journal; a space where I speak with emotion and passion about some serious deep shit, like: life (especially life with a mental illness), death, love, sex, memories, magic...Expect raw honesty. I'm aiming to give you the feels

On a more "blah" note...

I was born in Brazil (*does a little samba move*) and I moved to London at the ripe old age of 11. London has now been home for the last 18ish years, and I fucking love this beautiful-messy-vibrant city.

In 2015, I was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder, a disorder that has affected my whole life. As a result, I am currently a full-time Spoonie with side projects; I'm working on recovery and creating the real me (Y'know, the person I would be had society not brainwashed me).

I'm a hot mess and trying to build a life I don't want to leave.

I like to make jewellery (etsy shop soon to be launched! Eek!), I write, I dance and I'm on Instagram and Twitter a lot.

All things considered, my future looks like this: Writer, Yoga teacher, Burlesque dancer, Activist, creator of awesome jewellery, Death Doula.

Prior to hitting rock bottom, I worked in the events industry (I did a lot of weddings and corporate shiz). This complex industry taught me a lot, but one thing I am particularly grateful to have learned is that I HATE ORGANISING WEDDINGS AND CORPORATE EVENTS!

I gave up the career, the travelling, the money and I'm now working on becoming the real me.

I am now growing into a ballsy-wonderful-emotional-compassionate-spiritual-sensitive-hippie-badass. And I am really starting to fucking love & respect the woman I’m becoming.

Ignorance is bliss, until you mentally & physically breakdown from trying to stay ignorant forever! ~ Me, I said that.
