September Favourites 

I’ve seen better Septembers than this one but some things are just in the lap of the gods and we have to get on the best we can.

I do however like to have a look back at what things did make me happy/helped in some way throughout the month.

Here goes….

BEAUTY:

MASK OF MAGNAMINTY FACE MASK BY LUSH £11.99

READING:


FOUND ON ANAZON KINDLE APP FREE WITH PRIME OR £4.99 FOR PAPERBACK

LISTENING:

PERSONAL


This gorgeous little peach…my niece Daisy came over to visit me and Mum and we were both shocked when she got down off my brothers lap and ran across the room. My eyes filled with tears of Joy. I got her to say Hol Hol too which made me smile. Being an auntie is one of the best feelings in the world. You feel so loved. I became one at 12 and they’ve just kept coming since.

QUOTE OF THE MONTH:


BEING THERE FOR SOMEONE ELSE BRINGS WARMTH TO YOUR HEART AS WELL AS THEIRS SO WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO LOSE?

Thanks for having a nosey and I’ll see you in my next post…


AUGUST FAVES

Here are a few things that I’ve loved in the month of August.

If I had spent more time out of hospital than in there would be loads more but here’s what I came up with.

Ok so here goes…..

HP SPROCKET PRINTER

I’d had this on my Amazon wish list since just after Christmas and when I first went into hospital I was feeling rather down so I thought 8 months was long enough to keep the HP Sprocket waiting so I bought it. Totally worth waiting for. You just download the app that goes with it and buy the printer paper 2×3 of any make (as it’s cheaper not being HP) and away you go. Below I have a few ideas I may use mine for.

AN OLD FAVOURITE I FOUND –  LOVERDOSE PERFUME


I reckon it was about 3 years ago I first bought this. It has a very girly smell not as strong as Britneys signature perfumes. I’ll hold my hand up and admit I still have Fantasy in my perfume collection.

Anyway, I was on Superdrug’s website looking for a present for my friend and there  Loverdose was. I was like oh my, that’s nostalgic. My Mum decided to treat me to it cos she’s such a babe. So now I smell bloody beautiful.

A SPLASH OF COLOUR TO THE GARDEN SHED

Those of you that follow me on my blog Instagram would have already seen this. Finally, our little shed at the bottom of the garden had a makeover. I absolutely love it. We went with a purple door because I wasn’t allowed a pink one so it was a compromise. Now looking out on even the shittiest of days the garden will still brighten my day.

GLAMOURS PODCAST – A MUST LISTEN 

img_0914

You know that purple app on your iPhone that you think is rather pointless. It’s actually full of hilarious and informative stuff. Podcasts have been my saviour of late as they are so relaxing to listen to when you feel a bit anxious. So Glamour has a 40-ish minute podcast with celebrities talking about all sorts of topics ranging from social media to problems, to things that irritate you. It’s Called Hey, it’s ok… It’s definitely a laugh out loud Podcast and if you needed a pick me up this is it. My favourites have been Rylan, Fearne Cotton and Dawn O’ Porter. Don’t diss the purple app, go take a look.

Last but not least is a random favourite 

 

WARBURTON CRUMPETS 
I pretty much eat these on a daily basis only because they are very low fat and the calories are too. I love having sweet or savoury on them. Honey or cheese has to be my favourite choice at the moment.  Quick to do and only £1 what’s not to like.

BYE BYE AUGUST…BRING ON SEPTEMBER I AM AN AUTUMNAL BIRD AT HEART
