What i plan to do with my blog

I been doing some thinking….and no this is not mine but i so would wear one just for times when i needed to collect some important thoughts.

s-l225

I want my blog to have a variety of things as of late its all been a bit of a personal experience overload. So here’s the conclusion i have come to…..


  • Along the top of my blog you will see Categories and if you hover over them you will see some of my posts i have written. Here you will find posts i feel will be of interest and will hopefully help someone. Well i hope that with all my posts but its just something different i guess.

So each post i write will fit into one of these categories:

PERSONAL – BEAUTY/REVIEWS – POSITIVE THINKING – HEALTH – QUOTES –

WORDS OF WISDOM – MONTHLY FAVOURITES


  • I want to include tracks and playlists here is one song that always gets me singing and slightly out of tune. Good old Ed.

ED SHEERAN – GALWAY GIRL

  • When my throat is ok i want to add voice messages to my blogs but at the mo it hurts to speak. All part of my illness i am learning to live with but i will try to record on the good days.

  • When i started blogging it was because i wanted a hobby. Now i really look forward to writing and creating content. Not sponsored by anyone and don’t get free stuff sent to me. I have thought about it and come to the conclusion that it would take the fun out of it.

What you read and the things that you see are all things bought by me and my own words.

stay true

Much love and here’s to a fantastic week…

Take your top off if you wish:My thoughts 

I have never wrote anything like this on my blog but it was something that was bought to my attention as the weather has got hotter here in England. So i thought why not speak up about it.

I myself grew up hating my body because society said that going through puberty and becoming a woman you were most likely going to get picked on because you had spots and curves and boobs coming way too early and you just didn’t fit in with everyone elses body your age.

I NOW DON’T LET ANYONE TELL ME THAT THE BODY I WAS BORN WITH ISN’T BEAUTIFUL AND I CELEBRATE IT EACH AND EVERY DAY

 BUT THIS REALLY GETS TO ME BEING A WOMAN….

I see all of these men at the moment walking around with their shirts off some of them are well into their 70s but thats not the issue here. its very acceptable for a man to get his chest out because he is hot but as soon as we decide that maybe we are too hot for a top too its bang out of order.

I DISAGREE

Having a pair of boobs, breasts, tits whatever you want to call them is an amazing thing and not in the way that A LOT of narrow minded people see them…they see them as sexual objects and that they should only be out when you want some attention to them like sex or just for someone to say – ” nice pair love”

The female breasts should be treated no differently than a mans. Having yours out of clothes should be free kind of feeling and not a oh my god i am sending out the wrong message. Some people have to have them removed or reconstructed for medical reasons and that should never be frowned upon . They should be celebrated no matter how big or small they are…they feed children which is something pretty awesome in itself.

If it became legal and acceptable i would not be ashamed to put mine on show as i’m proud of what i have and nobody should ever put anybody’s body down

JUST CONCENTRATE ON YOUR OWN

Question Time: Yes i have…No i haven’t

questions

ITS QUESTION TIME

I asked what kind of post you would like to see and a personal one was in favour so i came up with this one which you can get to know me a little better.

HAVE YOU EVER?

SKIPPED A CLASS: I tried not to make it a habit but sometimes i couldn’t help it and ended up going home at lunch and didn’t go back for the rest of the day (bullies didn’t help)

DONE DRUGS: Do i look that silly? Not something that’s ever appealed to me

SELF HARMED: I have had some low moments in my life as i have suffered with depression on and off  but its only ever been a slight thought never acted upon it.

SHOP LIFTED: I have only done it twice. Once when i was at my local sweet shop i put some sweets in my pocket when the shop keeper wasn’t looking, she must have had eyes in the back of her head cos i had to give them back. Second was a freebie on the front of the mag. Wasn’t allowed the magazine so i put the freebie in mums handbag. She gave me a bollocking when she found it.

WHATS YOUR FAVOURITE….

SHOW: I have two they are both oldies…The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air and the Golden Girls. Thanks to Amazon prime/Netflix for my Will Smith fix and Mum for buying me the Golden Girls box set.

FILM: Without a doubt it has to be Bridget Jones. The first one obviously. I have a few others that come very close that i’ll do in a later blog post. Bridget is so relatable,  quotable, funny and has some lovely eye candy too.

SONG: Everything i do (i do it for you) by Bryan Adams. I have loved it since i heard it on a jukebox when i was 6 years old. Now i am old enough to understand lyrics it has so much more meaning to it.

BOOK: The Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S Lewis. I thought of how magical it was the first time i read it that there could be a whole different world in the back of the wardrobe i soon found out there wasn’t.

WHATS YOUR OPINION ON….

GAY RIGHTS: Love has no labels so those who discriminate are the ones in the wrong. I applaud the LGBT community for standing up to the haters and not changing for nobody.

SECOND CHANCES: I believe everybody deserves a second chance but that’s it. No third, fourth or fifth. If you do you may as well have mug tattooed on your forehead.

SEX ON A FIRST DATE: If i was to have sex on the first date (which i don’t) it would certainly not turn into anything more serious than a one time thing. Love isn’t built on sleeping with someone when you only met them a few hours before.

DO YOU…

HAVE A STRONG ACCENT: Although i live in the countryside i don’t think i sound as broad as some of the people so i have that to be thankful for.

HAVE ANY SCARS: I have a massive scar from where i had my bladder operation. The actual Bladder stoma itself is tiny but where they opened me up is quite sizable but luckily my knickers hide it.

BELIEVE IN LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT: I really do believe that you could fall in love with someone just by looking at them but when you get to know them as a person is when you really know if its true love or just infatuation.

I hope you enjoyed getting to know me a little better.

Monday Motivation 101

3ad2c6414bc4675137b8a9fd69e000db

Its Monday, the beginning of a new week and most of us get that immediate feeling of dread of oh no its Monday. Yes it’s the end of a weekend where you probably could relax a bit more and enjoy a bit of freedom but now its the start of a brand new week and it should be exciting and not mundane.

If you have these 3 things then great if not they would be worth investing in

A collection of Sticky Notes

19141407_10155493449809479_1064708151_n

A Diary to keep events in etc

 19114484_10155493449589479_415753544_n

A Planner Pad

0445276_l

  • With your sticky notes write some positive affirmations on there to get you in  fabulous mood for the week ahead. No matter how silly you think they are if they are going to perk you up and make you feel good its worth it every time.
  • Keeping a diary is one of the best things you can do. Not only can you put in things that you can look forward to but also the things that have made you happy. One productive thing no matter how small should be noted. The little things can become the big things one day.
  • You can pick these planner pads up pretty cheap i think mine was £2 from Wilkos.  They are really good if you need a kick up the bum to get chores done. Kind of like a to do list but with a much better layout and looks prettier than a tatty piece of paper.

 

I have gathered a few motivational quotes on this slideshow especially for getting you in the mood for Mondays…You can also follow my Motivational board over on Pinterest.

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Remember it doesn’t have to be a Monday to get motivated it just helps start the week off fresh. That’s the way i look at it.

 

Have a fab week …

Late night thoughts 

What do you do when you can’t sleep?

You write a blog post about whatever comes to mind and that’s exactly what I’m doing now. It’s nearly 3am and I made the mistake of taking a long ass nap this afternoon so I’m wide awake. 

So I found this quote on Pinterest and thought I’d put my view on how I see it.

  • I’ve lived for the weekends at the nightclub in my late teens & early 20s.Then I grew up.
  • I’ve loved many people in different ways and some I still cherish very much.
  • I’ve lost friendships I thought were dear and loved ones sadly no longer here anymore.
  • I’ve missed the fun times I should have been having with my dear Daddy instead he is suffering with dementia.
  •  I’ve hurt from the ones that broke my heart and the feelings I let get to me too much.
  • I’ve trusted those who I thought I would always be able to depend on.
  • I’ve made mistakes, plenty in fact and they’ve made me who I am today.

I guess all the bumps in the road of life is a learning curve and life won’t ever come easy. 

I am who I am today because of this and I wouldn’t have it any other way as life would be pretty boring if it was plain sailing.
