GIRL QUOTES: INTERNATIONAL DAY OF THE GIRL 

I only found out a few days ago there was an International Day For Girls.

I know we have International Woman’s Day at the beginning of the year I believe that girls should be recognised too as being a powerful gender.

I found some pretty awesome quotes that show we are strong females no matter what age we are.img_1500

 There is no need to strive for perfection just be your amazing self

Making a stand with other girls is much better than fighting against them.

Never give up on your childhood dreams, trust me, mine has come true.

Speak up and don’t let your thoughts and ideas be silenced.

Many apologies for my absence I promise I’m back now

I thought this post would be quite appropriate as I have been having a rough time at the moment as most of you know.  But also for those of you that just need that little bit of a positivity boost.

This one’s a fab find… you wouldn’t keep dead flowers in a vase so don’t keep negative thoughts stored up in your head

Ok so when you think, it uses energy even though you don’t really think it does. You will feel it happening. That’s where you feel happy or sad by the positive or negative thoughts you have.

In life, there are things you can’t change no matter how hard you try.  As much as it may stress you out at the time once you think to yourself let that shit go you will instantly feel a sense of relief and feel a lot happier.

Good Moaning its Monday

08053266f93f9b6a579aba208df983f5

Oh my goodness really is it really here? I want the weekend to be here already I hear you say. I bloody hate Monday. Well, guess what…..

c276586d93d63b4519bd4608398d0d3e

For years and years the word Monday sends peoples blood pressures shooting up, as they dread the start of the week ahead. The weekends gone and its ages until it comes back around again.

Heres some humour to get you out the Monday blues…

I’m picturing Rod Stewart right now but he looks pretty hot with his crazy hair so not every mullet is hideous.

 I guess that we can look at it as not every Monday is the same and some you will shudder at and others you will grow to like.

767f4b1f9ff12107ae38ff804892f0da

You needn’t be in a slump for the entire day, starting a week on a bad feeling is just asking for a shit week ahead.

Put a smile on your face, a big pair of positive pants on and make a list of goals you want to smash for the next 7 days and stroll into the week with your head held high.

10 Ways To Body Confidence

One aim i want you to strive for this summer and carry on the rest of your life is this…   Body Confidence 

These 10 ways will help you on your way and if you put them into action you soon wont need to look at the list to see what needs to be done to achieve it because you will have it.

Lets get into them…

  • Appreciate all that your body can do – It gets up in the morning, it feeds you, you walk around and you exercise it. Be thankful that yours works as some peoples do not.

 

  • Keep a top 10 list of things you like about yourself -Things that aren’t related to how much you weigh or what you look like. So we are looking at your beautiful inside. I will do a blog post on this topic soon.

 

  • Remind yourself that Beauty is not only skin deep – Those so called perfect pictures you see on Instagram that have most likely been edited and staged to hell. You are much more than that. Beauty shouldn’t be taken at face value.

 

  • Look at yourself as a whole person and don’t just focus on one body part. Loving the whole of you is so much better

 

  • Surround yourself with positive people – Those people that lift you up and think your a fabulous human being those are the people you want in your life. The others you just gotta wave bye bye to.

 

  • Shut down the voices that tell you that you are not perfect – Whoever invented that word was silly as people strive to be perfect and hate themselves for not measuring up to someone else. You be you and let them be them.

 

  • Wear clothes that are comfortable and make you feel good – Theres no point putting on those 5 inch heels because you saw them on someone else and they rocked them if you can’t walk in them and you don’t usually wear them. Have your own unique style and own it.

 

  • Look at social media / magazines in a constructive and positive way – Don’t slate the photos of females you think aren’t owning their look if you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say it at all. Us women were born to build each other up not tear each other down.

 

  • Do something nice for yourself and let your body know its appreciated – Buy it some new clothes or give it a nice soak in the bath with some bubbles. Every body loves a good pampering i know mine does . Love your body.

 

  • Send out a good message to others doubting their body – There are so many of us that are looking for body confidence and once you have got yours you can help others as well.

Don’t forget these 10 write them down, share them and use them.

Currently Loving: June Edition

Here we are again the time of the month where i get to reflect on my Monthly Favourites 

June you have bought me sun, a little tan and laughter along with these things below.

READING

While sorting though my chest of drawers i came across these antique diaries…shamefully mine. They are my school years so it was funny to see who i fancied and what my writing style was like. Check out the cosmopolitan freebie.

img_0281
WATCHING

All my illnesses have made themselves quite apparent this month so i have spent a few days in bed and YouTube never disappoints when i need cheering up.

I stumbled across this one of Carlton off The Fresh Prince it sure made me smile.

EATING

By now you should know that i have a bit of a sweet tooth and back when i was younger my Nan always liked Malt Loaf and i was a bit partial to it too. Sadly my Nan isn’t around to enjoy these snack packs that Morrisons have. Every time i open the cupboard and see these i think ‘Nans Favourite’ and now they are mine too.



WRITING

At the moment i am just concentrating on my blog and filling up my notepad with ideas and the odd poem happens to come to mind and i quickly jot it down before i forget. Maybe in the coming months i may plan on writing another book. Who knows?



WEARING

The flower crown came out when we had our mini heatwave and it is festival season so i was getting into the spirit of it and having my own since the crowds at them scare me shitless. The sunnies are an everyday accessory now Summer is here whether they are on my head or my face.

img_0288-1
LISTENING

I have only recently found this Summer Throwback playlist. There are so many that when they come on i’m like ‘I love this one’

Scroll down and have a nosey see which ones you like too.

Apologies If you are reading this on the laptop and see that the playlist isn’t central. I need to figure out how to do it.

QUOTE OF THE MONTH

So many quotes i’ve seen on Pinterest but i thought since its the beginning of the Summer it was quite fitting.

Oh great, its bloody raining as i end this post…Never mind roll on July. Only a few days away.

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.

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 …
