Hi! I’m Jemina Marina, and welcome to my blog.
(Jemina is pronounced juh-my-nah, in case you were wondering).
I write about lifestyle, as well as my personal experiences with trichotillomania.
For those of you that might not know what trichotillomania is, it is a compulsive hair pulling disorder that I have been battling since 2017. It has become such a huge part of my life, that it should be a part of my blog as well. I’ve found loads of creative ways to deal with it, so I’ll be writing about those too. I try to find ways to keep my hands busy – by doing embroidery or something else creative – usually while watching Law & Order SVU reruns.
My latest goal for this blog is to raise awareness for trich, and remind people that I am still a normal person. Although it has been a huge part of the last two years of my life, there’s more to me than this disorder. As well as writing about my trichotillomania, I love creating content about makeup, mental health, student life, and entertainment.
Over the course of my blogging career, I’ve been able to work with some amazing brands, including Boots, Lancôme, Starburst, and London Fashion Week Festival. If you want to work with me, you can see more information in my media kit.
I’ve spoken about doing embroidery and I actually sell some of my art over on Etsy! I also sell jewellery and keyrings, so there’s a lot to explore.
