LISTEN UP #4 – FIRST TIME FIRST LOVE – UNDER PRESSURE

This week I bring you a story time over on my podcast of how I was pressured into doing some things in life that I didn’t want to really do. One of them was losing my virginity.

I am on Spotify now which I think is fab so if you want to hear this weeks episode click here

I know not everyone has Spotify so I always leave the Soundcloud one here that you just need to press on the play button to listen.

Let me know your thoughts on the podcast or If you have been through something similar.

To my blogger friends

Being a blogger really is amazing.

Never would i have thought i would come across such kind hearted people who are full of courage, ambition and strength.

Who i have never met but i feel you are a part of my life.

I love to read your posts – the variety of your topics keeps me coming back to admire it some more.

Keep being the fabulous blogger that you are.

Much love…Me 💕

MONTHLY FAVES – OCTOBER

The end of the month is nearly here so I have gathered together some of my favourites of this October.

October is my favourite for two reasons: Its officially autumn and that’s the season where I feel I am most in love with. Although where I live it is taking the leaves a bit longer to change colour but I am patient, they will in their own time I guess. Secondly, it’s my birthday month. I spent it with family and a few days after my friends which means more to me than any presents. Plus the older you get, the less you get, unless your a lucky so and so.

MY FAVOURITE SONG

This song by Jess Glynne gives me all the feels. It’s about not needing makeup to feel beautiful. I grew up plastering myself in the stuff because I felt ugly without. If you need that self-confidence pick me up song this is it.

MY FAVOURITE FOOD

With a birthday you always got to have Cake and alcoholic beverages and in my case, we had a cheese night too. My Nannys favourite cakes were always Mr Kiplings Country Slices so they were bought in memory of her and because they are yummy. One friend bought some cupcakes, I mean who doesn’t love a cupcake? All in all, I put on about 3 or 4 pounds but birthdays are for celebrating anyway.

MY SKINCARE FAVES

I never really fork out on skincare products because I think if it doesn’t do my skin any good its a total waste of money. I was willing to take a gamble as my face had become really dry and my normal stuff wasn’t helping in the slightest. I had a nose on Beauty Bay and I stumbled across Mario Badescu. I had heard about their drying lotion being a hit but I wanted something to do the complete opposite. So these 4 things made their way to my house and so far so good. Been a week or so I’ll keep you in the loop in a later post.

QUOTE OF THE MONTH

2018-10-26.png

This is such a powerful quote, it goes for my brother who I won’t ever see, or speak to again – but i hold so many memories of him that I can treasure forever. This also goes for people that are still with us that maybe we don’t see very often but you have so many stories to tell that are stored up in your mind. Those memories are one of a kind and they are yours to keep.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope your October has been awesome too.

Til next time

Don’t let Instagram define who you are

I love Instagram as much as the next person but what I really can’t stand is when someone compares themselves to an instagram feed. After all it’s a bunch of somebody else’s pictures they’ve uploaded – maybe edited them to their liking and to fit in with their theme.

You may know this instagrammer personally or you may not of even met. Either way please do not compare yourself to someone else’s life. Whether that’s how it is or that’s how they want to portray it. You have your own life and own mind and your own feed to post real things that make you happy to look back at.

I would rather people who visited my instagram were left with a warm feeling of how one of my pictures helped them in some way – i love to write a little positivity with my pictures or a funny story.

Don’t be a sheep and follow be a flamingo. Stand tall and stand out because of just being you.

Thanks for stopping by

Big girls do cry

Oh my where do I start,

So, I have been not as active on here as I usually am. I really don’t want people to think I’m any less of a blogger now than I was when I was smashing posts out left, right and centre.

As you know if you follow me I have been in and out of the hospital this last year and it’s not particularly improving but I must try to manage it the best I can at home. My body still paralyses every day as soon as my eyes open it’s like it thinks ha she’s awake let’s be beat her body up.

To be honest I am actually coping mentally better than I was but of course I get those days when I think oh bloody hell, why me. My thoughts need to be – you just try me.

Also I had a birthday at the weekend which I couldn’t really celebrate for the very sad reason, that my big brother lost his fight with Cancer the day before my birthday. I really was hoping he had more fight left in him. Two years ago he was diagnosed, and he took everything in his stride. Will miss him so very much. Oh dear I’m tearing up again.

Please know it’s ok to cry though, it shows you’re human and have a heart.

Once my heads a bit straighter I will have a more regular uploading schedule. I much prefer to write and publish on the same day. I guess we are all different.

Thanks for being understanding, and I’ll see you in my next post.

Til then

LISTEN UP #2 – WEEKLY INSTALMENT

Last week I published my very first podcast – which was an introduction to what my little series would include, along with a few little light hearted stories for good measure.

I enjoyed it very much because I can just chat into my iPad freely and then add some music at the start and the end and then submit it on a Wednesday – which is today.

I just picked the middle of the week because that’s generally when people need a bit of a pick me up.

So this week I focused on self love and looking at other then pampering what could help. I think I came up with a good ten tips.

I have been verified on iTunes now so if you have apple here is the link
