A Random Q and A

it’s Saturday morning, it’s peeing down outside, how English…

Anyways I thought I would do a very laid back post today and find some questions from good old Pinterest to answer. Some may be quite interesting others may be a bit random, its all a bit of fun so let’s begin.

What did you want to be when you were younger?

I wanted to be an author. I wanted to write from a young age and my dream has come true. My book is now on Amazon.

which friends character do you relate to the most?

I would have loved to of said Rachael but I am going to have to say Phoebe because of her randomness.  I like her can’t sing to save my life but give it a good try.

whats your favourite accent?

I absolutely love the Irish accent. On a weekly basis, you would hear me and my mum saying words in an Irish accent. I find it funny that they don’t really pronounce TH. I like the welsh too but an Irish man talking just melts me.

Do you have any scars?

I have 3 keyhole scars from my gallbladder removal 10 years ago, a big scar from my bladder reconstruction surgery from 3 years ago. oooo and from troublesome skin, I have some scarring on my cheeks. All scars have a story.

Favourite swear word?

I am going to say fuck. I have after all the years of writing fuck on a text message and it comes up duck I have it sorted…put it in your phone book. no number needed and your phone won’t get it mixed up. I don’t condone swearing all the time just when it’s needed.

Whats your guilty pleasure?

I think most of my friends and readers know I have a weakness for silver foxes also even though he isn’t grey I love a bit of Colin Firth. Who doesn’t?

What are you wearing?

A pink cropped hooded jumper, black leggings, Disney socks, an oversized scarf and a hot water bottle…yes I am wearing it. it’s never too far away.

Favourite boys and girls name?

I love the name Frankie for a boy and Lola for a girl…i actually would change my name to Lola if I could.

Favourite movie ever

Bridget obviously….closely followed by Dirty Dancing and Now and Then…all very quotable I could watch them over and over again without getting bored.

A celebrity you can’t stand?

I can’t stand Michael Macintyre simply because I really don’t like a comedian who laughs at his own jokes before the audience has. Give me Mickey Flanagan any day.

Ever skinny dipped?

No never skinny dipped but I definitely wouldn’t say no…something about just being free and in the sea, it’s like a ginormous bath without the bubbles.

Do you like yourself?

I didn’t use to say 2 or 3 years back.I didn’t like looking in the mirror for too long and didn’t like my body shape but I am learning to love myself and all of my flaws. I am much more body positive these days,

There you have it a get to know me in question form. I probably will do more of these at some point they get your mind thinking.

Have a fab weekend

Til next time…

All the single ladies

If like me you are a single pringle this will very much apply to you…

So just because its Valentines Day on the 14th of Feb doesn’t mean you have to feel down in the dumps about not being coupled up with someone. It is only another day after all.

So I have come up with some things us single ladies could do if we really didn’t want to feel unloved this Valentines Day.

Treat yourself to something online

You know that thing you have had in your wishlist on ASOS or Amazon for ages…go get it girl. You deserve it. It’ll make you feel happy won’t it what have you got to lose…well just as long as you don’t break the bank getting it.

Have a pamper day

You know as well as me that a good old sesh of pampering yourself is so relaxing and therapeutic as hell. Grab all your bath bombs, scrubs, face mask and candles and move into the bath for the afternoon. It’s the best feeling when you’re looking after yourself and feeling good about it at the same time.

giphy (3)

Bake or buy yourself a cake

Nothing tastes as good as a piece of cake…ask Matilda’s friend Brucie Bogtrotter – in fairness he ate the entire cake maybe don’t overindulge,  just a tiny bit of yumminess. Go to your local supermarket or bakery and grab your favourite cake or the ingredients you need if you are going to put your whole heart into baking one. Grab a spoon sit down and enjoy each mouthful.

Go for drinks with your girlfriends

Maybe there are a few of you in your friendship circle that don’t have a significant other. There is no better excuse to go for drinks with your friends you don’t want to be alone and nor do they so drinks to celebrate how fab you all are sounds like a perfect plan.

giphy (5)

Last but no means least

Good old Netflix…..Chill on your own and watch what you want for as long as you want with all the snacks and blankets you want.

Hope my single readers will maybe do one of the things above…failing that just hibernate undercover til Easter.

Thanks for reading

til next time…

I have been following Tarnya for some time and I was delighted when she wanted to come on my blog to do a Q and A.

so without further ado  let’s jump in with the Questions

1) What are your top 3 favourite books?

I couldn’t possibly pick just ONE book from the Harry Potter series, so I’ll have to say the entire series as my first choice!

Then I absolutely love Survivor by Chuck Palahniuk, it’s dark but I love all of his books.

Then lastly I’d have to say Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur, I read it recently and it really rekindled my love for poetry.

2) What is your favourite cruelty-free brand/product?

I love Nars, Charlotte Tilbury and The Ordinary for CF make up! Also Superdrug own brand is good and affordable too!

3) What did you want to be when you were asked at the start of school and has it changed?

I wanted to be a Vet when I was younger, but then I heard you had to put your arm up a cows bottom and changed my mind! I’ve never really known what I want to do, but I’m happy with my current job as a games tester in the Video Game Industry.

4) What are your favourite arty things to create?

I actually am obsessed with photography, it’s my favourite thing. I want to try and incorporate more photography with art like an art journal or scrapbook this year for fun.

One off Feature Friday with Lizanne and Eden

Today I have two bloggers I have only recently discovered and I thought why not bring them to my blog to do a Q and A.

Both girls totally different but totally fabulous so here we go with Lizanne from Lizanne_style.

1) What 3 make up products are your must-haves and why?

A) The 3 make up products that are my must-haves are a good primer as it will help your foundation go on a lot smoother, a good foundation as once you have that sorted everything else it easy and a good setting spray as your makeup will look more natural and less powdery.

2) What song reminds you of your childhood, what song do you love to put on repeat and what song can you not stand?

A) The song that reminds me of my childhood is Last Christmas as it was the last song recorded by Wham, the song I love to put on repeat is Small Town Throwdown as I love Country music and the song that I cannot stand has got to be I’ve got a song that will get on your nerves as it does get on my nerves.

3) Other than where you live now where would you like to live and why?

A) I would love to live in New York as it has always been somewhere I would love to visit and I love theatre.

4) What’s your motto in life it advice to others?

A) My life motto is if you don’t succeed get up and try again. My advice to others is if you want something go out there and gets it and if anyone says you can’t do it ignore them as they are only jealous.

Happy The Journal – My First Impression

I am so over the moon with this fabulous journal I had for Christmas from my brother…

The bro did good. More like his girlfriend did.

s-l300

So if you haven’t seen or heard of it before it is one of Fearne Cottons creations that she has put together of positive thinking in a journal type way. It is really quite clever and different. I haven’t seen one like it before.

I thought I would give you a first impression of what I think of it and a peek inside of it too.

This is my first page…It gives you a whole page to write down your wishes for the year ahead but instead of putting ‘I want’,  you write it as if it has actually has happened so in mine you can see my positive points. I came up with 10. It took me about half an hour to wrack my brains to come up with some good ones.

Throughout the journal you will see these quotes which are not only positive but powerful too. I always get that instant boost when I read a good quote.

Heres an idea if you don’t always have your book to hand you could copy the quotes down into the notes section on your phone and when you need that bit of positivity you have it right there.

Skipping to February – Each month has a theme and you probably can guess from the prompts above that Feb is Love. Even if you aren’t in a relationship they are still relatable as most of this book is pointed towards self-love and improving your life.

At the end of each day you will have a face with no mouth… here you can put how your mood was on that day and then when you flip back through its a reminder of how you felt on that day.

As you can see the pages are a bright array of pastel colours but unfortunately its a cold and miserable day with little sunlight so I just had to adjust mine to look semi-decent.

You can buy this Journal in pretty much every bookstore there is worldwide. It’s also kind to your purse too just over a tenner and has so many pages of content its well worth spending your pennies on.

If you like writing/journaling and a bit of self-development then this is going to be just the book for you.

Thanks for stopping by

Until next time…

My Christmas Wish To You

I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and I will be back shortly after Christmas to do a few posts before we start the new year…

I’ve been blogging every day lately and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it. However I do need to sort out a schedule of some sort for 2018.

Eat as much as you can without popping on Christmas Day. It’s the only time you can get away with it without someone saying haven’t you ate enough already.

Spend it with those that matter the most. It’s not all about presents it’s about love. Well it is for me. Presents are just a bonus.

Much love and enjoy xx

 

Speaking from the heart – Self Help

I have always been a bit of a talkaholic I dunno where it comes from my siblings are quiet compared to me.

Lets get to the point of it…

So I do want to start making videos in the new year ( with my face in ) but until then I thought I would start off with a few voice only less than 2 minute self-help videos. I really loved looking on Pinterest for my inspiration for these following videos so let me know if you would like more of these and I’ll get nosing again.

Reduce your Anxiety in less than 30 seconds

 

Powerful women Manifesto

Night time Affirmation

if you take the time to listen it would mean a lot to me. I love helping people and I hope these help some of you.

Much love

Until next time…
