MY FEBRUARY FAVOURITES

You know what I’ll hold my hands up and say i nearly forgot to do my monthly favourites, think because we only get 28 days in February this year.

So of course I had some faves so here goes.

AIRLINE THE TV SHOW

Do you recognise these from back about 15 years ago at least. It was always on the tele and i enjoyed it then, then i found out that cbs reality on freeview had it on catch up so I’ve been binge watching Jane, Leo and Katrina.

SONG OF THE MONTH

I haven’t got a bloody clue how to pronounce her name but it’s been in my head lately its called don’t feel like crying, i guess it doesn’t help they play it on the radio loads. Its got a good beat, that’s why i think i like it.

NEW SET OF WHEELS

Not everyone will understand why it’s a favourite, but I’ve got an electric wheelchair for good weather and the other one was on loan. So money I’d saved at Christmas I’d kept to buy this…wasn’t too expensive but i only want it for A to B. Its so pretty in purple and it helps my mum alot because its lightweight.

BEAUTY FAVOURITE

I have literally had this for 3 days and I’m so in love with it. I always look for mascara that gives the falsie look without having to spend a fortune, Milani came through with this one on Beauty Bay for Β£10. Highly recommend it.

As always i leave you with my favourite quote

Hope your February has been full of memories 😘

Are they fabulous or hideous – FASHION TALK

I was browsing on good old ASOS and if you didn’t know this you will now… when online shopping I put pink in the search but no matter what site I’m shopping on. I guess I’m that person that’s never grown out of the obsession with the colour pink.

So here’s the thing, in the summery months I fancy standing out a bit, you know making a statement. So I thought let’s have a look on ASOS at their trainers and you guessed it in the colour pink.

Here is my findings

FILA PINK DISRUPTOR II PREMIUM TRAINERS

these I really can’t decide if I think they are ugly or kinda cool… they are Β£85.00 I would definitely stand out in a pair of these.

BUFFALO LONDON FLATFORM CHUNKY TRAINERS IN PINK

I had a pair of these in black when I was 18 and wore them all the time. I remember they were Β£89.00 and I’d spent my birthday money on them. I am shocked at the price now. They have doubled to Β£180. I do love the colour but I wouldn’t ever spend that much on a pair of trainers.

NIKE WHITE AND PINK AIR MAX 95 TRAINERS

Out of all the trainers I’ve stumbled across these ones would be the ones I’d get…if I went to the gym of course or ran miles and miles. Unfortunately I can’t justify spending Β£130.00 when I won’t be walking in them. They’d just be looking pretty in my wheelchair.

CONVERSE X HELLO KITTY ONE STAR TRAINERS

Maybe if I was 10 years younger I would possibly buy these Hello Kitty themed converse trainers but I’m in my 30s I don’t think I would look very grown up in them. They are quite a reasonable price at Β£56.00. Maybe if the cat was off the back I may of bought them.

VANS EXCLUSIVE RED AND PINK CHECKERBOARD SLIP ON TRAINERS

These I totally dig but unfortunately at the mo they don’t have them in my size only an 8 or 9 and I’m a 5.5 so I’ll have to keep nosing. Think they must be in the sale as they are Β£30.00 so I won’t hold my breath.

I will be trying to include a bit more fashion because after all it’s what we wear 99% of the time when we aren’t naked πŸ™ˆ

Hope you enjoyed

Until next time

5 things to quit right now

These 5 things are going to make you happier if you stop doing them.

TRYING TO PLEASE EVERYONE

If you are trying to be a people pleaser all the time you really will start leading a sad life. It won’t do you any favours, you should be thinking of yourself and putting a smile on your face first.

FEARING CHANGE

When you are stuck in your ways and don’t venture out of your comfort zone you wont ever progress in life. You need to take a chance every once in a while, it won’t hurt you.

LIVING IN THE PAST

When you have things in the past control how you are living in the present, it stops you from enjoying what you should be. Leave the past where it belongs…behind you.

PUTTING YOURSELF DOWN

You should never ever put yourself down. You are enough, and you are a bloody wonderful human being. Remember this and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

OVER THINKING

Once your mind goes into overdrive it’s hard to get back to your normal way of thinking without eliminating what’s got you there. The thing to do is don’t let yourself get there in the first place.

I hope this will help you if you do some of these

Don’t push yourself too much

I know that the saying goes put your all into everything.

But honestly, be realistic about how much you can do and don’t make yourself feel shit in the process.

I myself have been putting pressure on myself to make podcasts and try and help others and give myself purpose.

Truth be told: At the moment my body paralysis is all over the place – possibly stress related but still not been proven. Anxiety has been present and my bladder is always problematic.

I can’t help these issues but i can not put so much pressure on myself and just help one person at a time when they need it.

My message to you is: Your goal will always be there, don’t rush. It will be worth it in the end.

The Diary of a Pinkaholic

Hey my lovely ones,

I wanted to have somewhere where I could just randomly blog daily about whatever came to mind that I also wanted to share with whoever wanted a read. I felt that here on Holzieloves wasn’t the right place and decided to make a second blog.

Holzieloves is going to be 3 this year and I have built it up to help inspire, share my tips, my life experiences, and to entertain and I intend to keep it that way.

So my second blog is called THE DIARY OF A PINKAHOLIC and it is what it says. I have always kept a diary of some sort and i adore pink. Don’t worry the blog doesn’t talk about pink all the time. It’s whatever is going on that day and a little bit of my humour too.

if you’d like to check it out then click here

I will still be uploading 2/3 posts a week here on Holzieloves so keep your eyes open for the next one.

Don’t ever suffer in silence like i did

Throughout my life, if I am being honest I have suffered quite a bit other than my health over the 33 years of my life.

Here are a few I’ll mention:

  • Bullied severely at school – police were involved come the end
  • Taken advantage of whilst drunk -shame on them
  • Sexually abused – Don’t worry I’m fine, there will always be wrong’uns
  • Had depressive moments – needed medication and outpatient therapy

I will forever remember these times it’s not easy to just forget those times in my life but it won’t ever define who I am or let it ruin my life. It happened and I can’t change what happened in the past.

I can however help those people who are struggling themselves. It’s the caring side of me. I wished I had more people about in my times of need. I had a few but not that one person who I could tell everything to.

HAVE A LISTEN TO ME

Please remember that there are people out there who can help you whether they are just an ear to listen, someone in a profession that can help you in the right direction or a friend/family member.

Believe it or not, they’ve probably encountered one of your problems and can aid you back to smiley happier you.
