This series is a perfect opportunity to read your favourite bloggers' honest and uncensored opinions on real life topics, and to discover new bloggers to follow! This weeks blogger is Mrs Slee Jones.
Tell us a little about yourself.
Hey beauties I'm Rhiannon, I'm a welsh blogger, mother, wife and on times, abit of a nut job haha!! I'm a qualified hairdresser and I love to dabble in makeup. I love talking to new people and although I keep to myself I have a very big personality.
Why do you write?
Writing helps me to express myself, how I'm feeling, what I'm thinking. I often get so much going through my head I frustrate myself, but writing helps me keep my mind a lot more peaceful.
Why did you start blogging?
Throughout my life I've encountered many health issues and struggled with mental health, that loneliness is horrific and there isn't enough help/awareness for people with invisible illnesses. So I decided to create my blog where I share brutally honest experiences of my life in the hopes it can help others going through similar to not feel so alone. Now it's not all doom and gloom though, I make sure to do product reviews and some other fun bits there also!!
What do you love about the blogging world/community?
Everyone is just so supportive of each other and friendly!! Who knew someone the other side of the screen, the other side of the world could become such a good friend!! And that's what it is, you make such good friends and nobody is bitchy and critical, everyone is so positive!! It's great being able to express yourself with no judgement.
What do you hate about the blogging world/community?
How fast paced it can be and finding your niche!!
In your opinion, who are the most underrated bloggers?
Oh totally Tania from The Phat Girl Blog.
What are some hard truths you have learnt about life?
That not everyone is your friend.
A big smile can often be a grin with fangs.
That you can't please everyone.
What does freedom mean to you?
For me it would mean to be free of the pain I go through daily with my health. Just a whole day without any pain would be incredible.
What are your thoughts on mental health and how it's portrayed in today's society?
Being a sufferer of PTST, EDD and Chronic Anxiety Disorder I think that there isn't enough help out there for anyone going through it. The system is a joke... I once was told that I "wasn't suicidal enough" to receive any help!! You get told to get help yet you have to be dead before they say you should have had help.
What are your thoughts on feminsim and how it's portrayed in today's society?
I think it's awesome as why shouldn't women have just as much rights as men ect?? Yet I don't see why others have such an issue with it!! Equality and all that jazz you know?!
What are your thoughts on 'Love is Love' and how it's portrayed in today's society?
Hey you love who you love, you can't help it end of. People need to not be so judgemental as if someone you don't even know is in love with someone you don't think is right then that's affecting you how exactly??
What advice would you give to someone who is fighting a mental illness?
Don't give up. EVER. Someone somewhere is going to find their way into your life and show you how much you're really worth!! This isn't the end of your story, it's just a small ass chapter!!
What advice would you give to someone who is being bullied or harassed?
Know you are better than them and don't let it keep you up at night. Find the proper measures to deal with it whether it be Police or any higher authority . Remember, Karma is a bitch my friend.
If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?
Poverty.. There is good and bad everywhere, but to see someone on the street's, cold, hungry, alone.. That breaks my heart!!
What else do you feel strongly about?
Adoption.. There are so many babies/children out there that need loving homes and I personally would love nothing more than to adopt, but again, the system makes it soo damn hard to qualify!!!!
Let's end this with some fun 'This or That' questions:
Love or money?
Love!! Money can't buy you happiness.
Work hard or play hard?
Work hard so you can play hard!!
Cups in the cupboard: right side up or upside down?
Up, can fit more in lol.
Chocolate or sex?
Sex ALWAYS haha.
Plan everything or wing it?
Control freak alert!! I need to know what I'm doing and what time I'm doing it.
Happiness or money?
Like I said above.. money can't buy you happiness.
