Fierce Female Friday Week 2

This is Hannah who is a mental health nurse by trade, beginning to branch out as a mental health and wellbeing coach.

She’s a mum of 2 and step mum of 4, ages range from 2-18. So home life can be extremely busy,but all good fun.

So let’s get to know Hannah

and what makes her a fierce female

What makes you feel powerful?

I always feel stronger after meditating and finding my inner strength, allowing all the stresses around me melt away. I also look at myself in the mirror and tell myself I am awesome

What 3 strong women do you look up to?

Michelle Obama is an inspiration. I loved reading her autobiography. She is such a down to earth woman who is humbled by all the amazing opportunities that have opened up for her.

Sarah Steckler founder of Mindful Productivity because she is again really down to earth and open about her own struggles through life.

My mum because she has so much confidence in herself. We may not always see eye to eye but her inner strength and conviction is something I aspire to achieve in myself

What advice would you give to someone needing to find their inner fierceness?

I try to remind myself of all the positive things people tell me about myself. And remind myself that if I were to call others all the horrible things I call myself, no one would like me! I highly recommend meditation to help calm the mind and then focus on the positive messages in their life

The benefits of a facial roller

For a few months I just kept seeing so many influencers and YouTubers using these facial rollers and I caved in and thought I want to try one they look fun.

So I went and found myself one on my old trusty amazon

Mine is a Rose Quartz one, you can get Jade ones that are green and apparently they work differently.

A Jade roller revitalises the skin, wakes it up, makes your sluggish skin into stunning skin

A Rose Quartz roller on the other hand is full of minerals such as silcium, magnesium and Iron.

🌺 The silcium (silica) helps the elasticity in your skin

🌺 The magnesium helps relieve muscle spasms and helps headaches and sinus problems

🌺 The Iron helps regulate blood circulation and eliminates fatigue

So you can see why I chose the Rose Quartz over the Jade.

I guess the Jade one could be used in the morning and the Rose Quartz for the evening.

I find putting mine in the fridge adds a nice cooling effect to the skin.

Here’s the link to mine (I’m not sponsored or affiliated I just think it’s a fab product)

ROSE QUARTZ FACIAL ROLLER

Have any of you used one of these and have you seen any benefits from it?

Bullied for being me

After watching the tear jerking documentary with little mix Jesy Nelson ‘odd one out’ it didn’t half bring back all the feelings of what happened to me.

Life from the age of 11 was not how I envisioned it to be. I guess starting puberty that early didn’t help.

I was pretty much the only one for a few years that suffered with acne which of course made me the target for name calling and just making me feel like shit.

I had even a group of so called friends turn on me and taunt me inside of school and out. Our phone had to be unplugged as they were prank phoning every time you put it down for about 5 hours a day of a weekend 😔 it was horrendous looking back

These would in turn be the ones who beat me black and blue 2 weeks before my exams. My prom photos weren’t the ones I wished for as my face was still too sore for make up.

It took a good 5 years to actually get them out my head and life. But I don’t know why it still happens daily to people. It’s just not called for and it makes me so fierce when you see people take their lives because of it.

Bullies are just insecure about their own lives and instead of facing their problems they make sure someone else is miserable too.

My advice is to never suffer in silence. You deserve a happy life so don’t be made to feel miserable in the process.

Skincare faves

My skin is sensitive, dry and prone to spots so I need to pay attention to all the goings on of my face.

Olay has me covered with these 3 and it didn’t leave me out of pocket.

I’m pretty sure it was a 3 for 2 at boots so it was a win win all round.

At night I will use the beauty fluid to give my skin just enough moisture but not too much that it gets on my pillow.

Then in the morning I use my olay daily facials as they get off any dirt from overnight and I feel they help get rid of my dry areas in the process.

Then before I do my make up I use the day cream. It also acts as a primer too so it’s a perfect base for my foundation.

The worst thing I get if I don’t prep my skin before make up is dry skin underneath my foundation and nothing looks worse than that when every other part of your made up face looks lovely.

Monday’s don’t have to suck

We somehow dread Monday like it’s the plague or something, when in fact it is just another day.

I guess it’s because most people have weekday hours and the weekend is their fun time so when it’s over it’s back to the grindstone.

In reality, if you choose to love your Monday as just another day and not like a chore you hate then it will go just as good as any other day.

I like that Monday’s are a start of a new week so you can wipe last weeks slate clean and start a fresh with new goals to smash.

Music and me


Personally when I have a head full of problems that I just don’t want to sort at that precise moment in time, I always turn to music.

Different types help me in different ways

  • When I feel anxious and just want to chill, out I will go for something like a crackling fire or panpipes. Just focusing on the sound and the sound alone seems to soothe me.
  • If I need perking up because I’m in a grouchy mood then I’ll go for something that has a beat – think cheesy nightclub music. It brings back good memories.
  • If the tears are flowing because I’m generally upset, whether it’s hormonal or just somethings got to me, call me mad but I like listening to soppy love songs to just bawl my eyes out and get all the tears out all at once.
  • I do love just sitting with my mum and listening to her kind of music…which is the 60s as that was her school days/her youth. They really did have some great music out back then.

Here’s a playlist with some examples of the songs I’m on about.

What music do you turn to in your time of need?

Fierce Female Friday

For a month on a Friday I am going to be featuring some awesome women on a little series called fierce female Friday…

I thought I’d start off with me..

1. What makes you feel powerful?

Being able to have my own mind, create my own happiness, and wear what the hell I like. Being unique/one of a kind.

2. What 3 strong women do you look up to?

My mum of course, she takes everything in her stride. She has to put up with me too ha ha.

Stacey Solomon, she has worked so very hard to get to where she is today. She’s an inspiration. If you don’t follow her Instagram you really should.

My hospital nurse Rachel, who’s been through all my surgeries with me and helped me in between. She works so hard and is passionate about her job. She’s one in a million.

3. What advice would you give to someone needing to find their inner fierceness?

Stand up and be counted, never let anyone quieten you. Don’t let anything keep you down for too long. Life is for being the best version of you so go out there and kick some ass….not literally 🙈

Please look out for next week’s fierce female.

Lots of love, have an awesome weekend xxx
