Welcome!

My name is Yasmina and this is my little online space. 

Currently occupied by all manner of creativity and vast-oversharing, this blog is a digital look into the world of a dyslexic, Northern, chocolate-loving creative – me. I’ve been blogging since 2014 and shamelessly self-indulging in posts about the things I love as well as tackling more serious topics such as depression, anxiety and my personal experience of coming out. 

The online world can often be a lonely one, so here is a space for you to read, relate and make a friend. I’m all about open communication and making people feel safe and heard so please get in touch if you’re experiencing any of the issues I discuss on this site – I’m all ears. 

But for now, grab a cuppa, get cosy and have a browse.

What to do next?

My "day job" is YJM Creative. This is where I offer social media management and digital content creation including photography and editorial print design. It's also home to my portfolio which I like to share with prospective employers. If you would like to find out more about how I can help you or your business or perhaps you just fancy a browse at a couple of things I've been creating, head on over to YJM Creative

AUTISM AND…

🥹PROUD🥹 

I was first diagnosed Autistic nearly two years ago and there are a lot of things that I’ve learnt along the way. With this month being Autism Awareness Month, I’ve came up with a little series of my own where I will be discussing my personal experiences with some of the key factors that I struggle with in the hope that one person can relate to it and not feel so alone. But for the first post of the month, I thought I would begin by sharing how I’ve started to unmask: 

👉🏽 I am quite happy using fidget toys every single day! I really struggled to keep to society norms before being diagnosed to the point that I got home and felt so burnt out that I would cry. Yes I still have days like this but I am more open to bringing a handful of toys out with me. 

👉🏽 I understand that I need rest days and these are SO important in maintaining a healthy lifestyle! My rest days require hardly moving around and essentially shutting myself off from society so I can rebuild my energy. 

👉🏽 I’ve started to open up more. I think this goes alongside improving my mental health but I feel more comfortable trying to explain how I feel about a situation than I did before. If I’m feeling down or I don’t want to talk then I am more accepting of those emotions. 

If you are Autistic, what’s one thing that you are proud of? 🥰

Want to know where I’ve been? 

Belfast! 🇮🇪🍀

I surprised @bryansmithnufc with a city break for his birthday. It was a nice 48hrs together just exploring the city and having a much needed rest. 

The pictures don’t lie…

In summary, we went to the @gotstudiotour, ate delicious pizza at @fratelli.belfast, explored the @titanicbelfast and slept! 🥰

London Archives 📷

The main reason I travelled down to London last week was to do a client placement with @depaul_uk which was a fantastic experience but I managed to fit in some other things too. 

1. The Depaul UK head office 📍
2. Iced Chocolates from @gailsbakery was my new found love! 🫶🏽 
3. Inspiring street art 🖼️ 
4. Stranger Things: The First Shadow was incredible! I highly recommend grabbing tickets if you are a huge fan of the show👌🏽
5. @laporchettapollobar did the most DELICIOUS pizza I’ve ever tasted! 🍕
6. The walk to placement included this view of the Shard which was breathtaking every time I walked down the street 😍
7. Words of wisdom in the Depaul UK office 🧐 
8. I couldn’t leave London without having my go-to Halloumi Wrap and Criss Cut Fries from Leon 🌯 

Overall, it was a rather successful week in the capital. Since coming back I’ve been in a whirlwind of University work but I can’t wait for a break over the Easter holidays. I need a few days away from people, hence lack of social media presence at the moment. 

I hope everyone is doing okay! 🥰

The main reason I travelled down to London last week was to do a client placement with @depaul_uk which was a fantastic experience but I managed to fit in some other things too. 

1. The Depaul UK head office 📍
2. Iced Chocolates from @gailsbakery was my new found love! 🫶🏽 
3. Inspiring street art 🖼️ 
4. Stranger Things: The First Shadow was incredible! I highly recommend grabbing tickets if you are a huge fan of the show👌🏽
5. @laporchettapollobar did the most DELICIOUS pizza I’ve ever tasted! 🍕
6. The walk to placement included this view of the Shard which was breathtaking every time I walked down the street 😍
7. Words of wisdom in the Depaul UK office 🧐 
8. I couldn’t leave London without having my go-to Halloumi Wrap and Criss Cut Fries from Leon 🌯 

Overall, it was a rather successful week in the capital. Since coming back I’ve been in a whirlwind of University work but I can’t wait for a break over the Easter holidays. I need a few days away from people, hence lack of social media presence at the moment. 

I hope everyone is doing okay! 🥰

I had a fever dream moment this week! 🥹

As part of my work experience, I was asked to be on a panel at the Project Flourish event. It’s a project that has been set up by @hays_uk, @everyyouth_uk and @crisis_uk to help young people who are at risk of being homeless sustain employment. 

I discussed my story with 40-50 individuals which is something I’ve NEVER done before. I left feeling super duper proud of myself! 🥰 

Many people think homelessness is sleeping rough on the streets but it is more than that. A home is a place that you should feel safe, warm and welcoming. A lot of people don’t experience this due to feeling unsafe, insecure, or not living in the right circumstances. 

‼️ What is more surprising is that 42% of employers confessed to trying to terminate an employee’s contract if they became homeless! ‼️ 

This is NOT okay. For some people, work and university is the thing that is keeping them going. 

If you take anything away from this post, let it be that anyone can make a difference!

P.S. I have added a fundraiser for @depaul_uk for anyone wishing to donate to them. Depaul UK was there when I needed them the most and if it wasn’t for their support I would have not finished my degree last year, or be around to tell my story.
