Day in the life…

I say day in the life, this isn’t a typical day it’s what happened today.

I had to get up super early as we are having our ensuite made into a wet room so I can manoeuvre about a bit as our shower was tiny and when my mobility is crap it wasn’t very practical. So the work men have been in since Monday.

Mum had to wash my hair over the sink in the kitchen this morning, luckily it’s short and doesn’t take too long.

Then mid morning I had to go have some blood tests as after the op I had they need to do it every 3-4 months to keep an eye. I’m also getting tested for diabetes as I’ve not been feeling full par of late and a few symptoms of type 2 are what I’m experiencing. I’ll let you know what that outcome is.

So naughty I know but mum treated me and her to a chippy lunch. We normally have one naughty day and that was today. It was really yummy.

My anxiety and chronic fatigue has been playing up lately so I took myself up to my room this afternoon and just led on top of my bed and tried to zone out… Bit hard with the banging from the work men but it’ll be worth all the noise.

Still wearing this smile at the end of the day.

Gonna say nighty night and I hope you all have had a great day.

Open me when…

Ok, so i guess you have stumbled across something like this before on the net where you write a letter to your significant other to open at certain times in their life.

Well you know me i like do do things a bit differently so this is my DIY i’m setting myself and i’ll share the first letter with you in a min.

It’s writing letters to yourself. It’s not weird…its really taking care of you, and when you need that bit of guidance or to be perked up reach for that certain letter in your pack.

you can look at pinterest for inspiration or get it right from the heart. There is no right or wrong way.

So here is my first one…

You kind of get the jist of it right? It’s to pick you up when you need it the most.

It’ll be great if some of you decide to do this.

Thanks for stopping by

Words of wisdom

Hi and Happy Sunday

Here’s some words of wisdom for all of you.

Every single day is different.

Some days you wake up and feel strong to face the world, you feel like you can handle anything and you think you are unstoppable.

Other days you just don’t want to get out of bed, you feel like you’re fragile like glass and want to get away from reality.

That’s life

Life consists of both kinds of days. Learn to love and support yourself every single day, either good or bad.

Learn to accept that life has its ups and downs and that’s what makes it a wonderful journey.

What are you writing about?

From when you were small and you learnt to write your name….

Little did you know that you would be writing your whole life.

Though we all use writing differently.

If you are reading my blog and you blog too then you have a talent with your writing, or if you are an author I take my hat off to you too.

These 3 books play an important role in my life.

This is my journal where I write down whatever comes into my head I think is worth writing down and looking back at.

This one is where I see all the self care tips and those hacks and such like I put them in here so I know when I need some encouragement it’s in here.

Finally this is where I write all my ideas for blog ideas and of course my future book when I get round to writing it.

I write pretty much all the time as I adore it so much.

June Favourites

It’s that time again where I wrack my brains to see what I can include in my monthly favourites.

So here we go.

I’ll start with what happened right at the start of the month… I had my hair cut off and I bloody love it

SO…? STRAWBERRIES AND CREAM BODY MIST

I saw this in Boots while browsing at the make up it was situated at the end of the aisle. Smells like a dream and good enough to eat. Nice to put on when you don’t want to put your expensive perfume on.

MILEY CYRUS

Always loved Miley Cyrus even in way back in her Hannah Montana days.

She is coming is her new album. At the there is only 6 on there o Spotify let’s hope she adds some more.

MY LEOPARD PRINT SANDALS

These were accidentally stumbled upon whilst browsing some summer clothes on ASOS. Aren’t they just lovely, they are a little heavy but they are so comfy. Simple but stylish.

REVLON CUSHION LIP TINT

My lips adore this lip tint from Revlon. It goes on more like a matte lipstick and stays on at least 8 hours which I think is fab for a lip tint. Love it so much I’ve purchased another one just incase they sell out 🙈

HUMMOUS

For a while after surgery I lost my appetite a bit. The one thing that got me eating again was hummous. I usually dip cucumber and carrots in. If there’s none of them it’s a packet of crisps. Luckily they also do a 30% less fat so I don’t feel too guilty whilst eating it.

INSHOT

If you are looking for an app that you can edit, make collages on, edit videos and add a bit of music then inshot is it. Of course with most apps there are in app purchases but to be honest you can do so much on here without having to buy anything. Go download it and have a play around.

QUOTE OF THE MONTH

Just love meaningful quotes and this one is perfect.

Thanks for stopping by

Here’s to July

Self care is the best care

Self care is not just all about putting on a face mask and pampering yourself, but my goodness doesn’t that sound like a great idea.

Self care is about taking care of you as a whole and making sure you are being kind to every part of you inside and out.

I’ve come up with a list of things to do on days when you need that extra more care and attention…mind, body and soul.

So here goes

  • Unplug your phone/ put it on do not disturb for an hour or two just let your mind just be
  • put on some relaxing music whether it’s acoustic or panpipes or just instrumental just enjoy the sounds.
  • Do a brain dump – grab a notebook and just unload what’s in your head onto one page it’ll help clear your head.
  • write poetry/ song. You will find it so therapeutic.
  • light some scented candles or diffuse essential oils. Get your area smelling serene.
  • Find an app to destress you I think insight app is great. A must try.
  • self massage, the bits you can get to just add moisture to it with either baby oil or a body lotion. Make your body feel loved.
  • Practise positive affirmations whether you say them out loud on in your head it will keep you in a positive mindset.
  • Do some yoga or some form of stretching, you’ll find that this will get rid of any tension built up inside.
  • Take a nap if needs be, it’s will renew your energy and get you in the mood to take on anything the day has in store for you
  • Make yourself a self care box of all things you love and that make you smile. If it fits put it in there.
  • Just enjoy your own company doing what ever your heart desires whether it’s watching a movie, eating your favourite food or singing along to your favourite songs.
