TO MY FOLLOWERS

As the days pass and the new year is nearly upon us

I wanted to ask you my followers, my loyal readers a few questions so I could work on it for the upcoming months ahead.

 

What posts of mine do you enjoy reading the most?

What would you like to see more of on here?

 What made you subscribe to me?

I want to make this blog as fun and informative as I possibly can. I love to write but sometimes like in most things you have a mental block and need a little advice to get you going again.

I would be so happy if you could leave your thoughts in the comments

Much love as always….

 

5 SELF HELP BOOKS TO START OFF YOUR NEW YEAR POSITIVELY

Self-help books aren’t for everyone but I am definitely one that loves a bit of guidance and because this year for me has been a bit crappy I am going into next year with a positive mind and positive outlook on things.

These 5 books are going to be my holy grails and I will be using them daily. In the past I haven’t been much of a bookworm but things change.

 LITTLE BOOK OF CONFIDENCE BY SUSAN JEFFERS 

I bought this book a couple of years ago and when sorting out my book box there it was at the bottom. Its no bigger than a pack of cards so no matter how small your bag is you can easily fit it in there for when you need that boost of confidence.

        A THOUSAND PATHS TO MINDFULNESS BY LIZ DEAN

My friend was telling me about mindfulness back along and i thought she was talking a load of twoddle and she gave me this book to keep and said you wont want to leave home without it. So when i went into hospital one of the activities other than therapy was mindfulness and i got to learn what its all about. It really helps the stress levels and focusing on the here and now.

START WHERE YOU ARE BY MEERA LEE PATEL

I started this about a year ago and then put it to one side and didn’t follow on with it but now i’m in the right head space i have put it with my books to work on this year coming. It has allsorts of questions about you as a person on whats important to you and where you want to be. I think its fab and look forward to completing it.

DO YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE BY MEGAN KAYE

This one is quite new to me but i have had a flip through it and done a few of the quizzes. It is full of things to do in there to discover the real you. I believe i got this from Amazon or maybe it was The Works.  Either way i highly reccommend buying one.

365 DAYS OF POSITIVE THINKING BY JENNY KELLETT

I just downloaded this book onto my kindle and it was free so that was the added extra.  I  have decided that I will start it on Jan 1st as it has a page a day for the whole year. There isn’t much on each page but just enough to give you enough positivity and pause for thought. I’m really looking forward to putting this one into my daily routine.

Let me know if you have any Self-help books that you think would be worth reading.

Til next time…

FEATURE FRIDAY Q & A

For this weeks Q and A I am joined by the wonderful Hannah from AMETHYST ROSE BEAUTY who’s blog posts have inspired me reading them and I hope they will inspire you too.

Here’s a few questions I came up with….

What quote do you love/live by?

I love the quote ‘Once you become fearless life becomes limitless’ because is so true. In life I realised I needed to be fearless in conquering things I wanted to achieve. Being fearless to me means not caring what others think or say, only doing things for me and things that make me happy. Then life really does become limitless, because there are no restrictions on what you can achieve!

What makes you feel confident?

Every time I wear a bold lip I feel so confident! No matter if it’s a simple makeup look or full glam a bold lip, it just makes me feel like I can conquer anything.

What is your signature make up look?

My go to signature makeup look would be winged liner and simple eyeshadow, a bold lip and a good highlight! It’s so quick to do but looks like so much more effort has gone into it!

Why did you start blogging?

I started blogging as it was something I had been thinking about doing for a while, and eventually thought there’s no time like the present! So I stopped putting it off and here we are today! Blogging about makeup, makeup looks and things I go through in life for me is very therapeutic. To write about my experiences and interact with others all over the world is amazing! I couldn’t imagine not blogging now!

10 WAYS TO BOOST YOUR MOOD

Absolutely everybody gets a down day even the most happiest of people.

Nothing is wrong with looking for advice on how to find that smile again…I’ve done it myself in the past. 

So I made this list back along in my journal and until now I didn’t think about sharing it with you. 

  1. Grab a DVD (preferably a comedy) some snacks, a blanket and dim the lights.
  2. Light a scented candle, add some bubbles and jump in the tub.
  3. Make yourself an uplifting playlist of songs that make you smile for days when you need to turn to it.
  4. Phone a friend and arrange to meet up- tell them to bring laughter.
  5. Go shopping whether in town or online it is the best sort of therapy.
  6. Draw or write whichever you think your better at and let yourself get super creative.
  7. Go put on an item of clothing that brings you joy, in your fav colour preferably. 
  8. Make your favourite meal / snack and really enjoy all the flavours 
  9. Go for a walk, feel the fresh air hit your face and take in all the beautiful views you see.
  10. Give a hug to someone it’s so heartwarming and leaves you with that happy fuzzy feeling. You could be cheering up someone else in the process.

My Fab blogger friend Bella Inizio also did a blog post on this topic why not go check hers out too. (Click on her name and it’ll take you straight to it)

I hope my list helps in some way and if you ever feel sad know that I’m only a twitter message away.

ITS MY BODY

Even though mine is slightly broken at the moment I wanted to get my views across about women and their bodies.

  • When someone says you’re beautiful they aren’t lying
  • Everyone has rolls when they bend over 
  • Stretch marks are on pretty much every second Woman don’t be ashamed.
  • Be more body confident it’s so attractive.
  • Everyone has one boob bigger than the other
  • It’s not wrong to be vain it’s called Self love.

Remember these:

  • You can wear what you want and wear it with pride. If it makes you feel good. Your body your rules.
  • The size of your waist doesn’t measure your worth.
  • Don’t let anyone give your body the attention when they haven’t had permission.

and last but not least 

Your body hears everything your mind says about it so think positive.

 
           

GIRL QUOTES: INTERNATIONAL DAY OF THE GIRL 

I only found out a few days ago there was an International Day For Girls.

I know we have International Woman’s Day at the beginning of the year I believe that girls should be recognised too as being a powerful gender.

I found some pretty awesome quotes that show we are strong females no matter what age we are.img_1500

 There is no need to strive for perfection just be your amazing self

Making a stand with other girls is much better than fighting against them.

Never give up on your childhood dreams, trust me, mine has come true.

Speak up and don’t let your thoughts and ideas be silenced.
