What feels like the longest month is nearly over… Its been a roller-coaster one for me with having an op but there have been some lovely things also that have made my January be filled with smiles.
Let’s start with
MY PURPLE SUITCASE
I searched high and low for a suitcase as I needed one for all my worldly goods at the hospital, and just at the last minute I found this one for £30. It’s called a Grant carry on case if you were looking for one too. I know that if I need to spend the night away this beaut will be coming with me.
MUSIC OF THE MONTH
If you like listening to covers of songs then you may like to take a nosey at
This one I’ve picked out is actually his own I believe. He has such a lovely tone to his voice
FOOD I’M LOVING
There were these sitting on a shelf asking to be bought so I couldn’t say no.
I love white chocolate and these didn’t let the side down. Truly delicious. Hopefully I can find them again as they were from a small shop.
Whether you like a bap or bread, you got to try mushy peas on the bottom then a fishcake. Chips are optional.
I’ve always loved fishcakes since I was little but never tried this and if I feel like treating myself this will be it.
WORD OF THE MONTH
The song by Sia gave me the inspiration. I knew I had a tough end to the month, so the lyrics and that word got me through.
BOOK I RECOMMEND
If you love RuPaul or Drag Race you will love this book he bought out.
It’s full of positivity and inspirational quotes like this one for example
I love RuPaul as a person and not just as a performer.
QUOTE OF THE MONTH
This one describes me I guess and I love it when a quote speaks volumes.
October is coming to a close and November is waiting in the wings
I am quite sad October can’t go on for longer it’s my favourite month of the year
Anyways let’s get back to why we are here.
These things brought me joy this month.
Mum asked me if there was anything specific that I wanted for my birthday… Well I had seen these on ASOS and said these would be perfect (for when we in England get dry days) so this was what she got me. Normally I don’t get any named trainers but they were pink and they did half sizes so I was happy I could get them.
I think I may have mentioned these before. They are by Rowntree – the people who make fruit pastilles they make these ice lollies too.
They are so bloody yum and I think about 60 calories so don’t worry if you are on a healthy diet these would be a great pick for a treat.
SELF CARE BOOK
I got some books a couple of weeks ago as I need to get my nerd on. I’m a writer, but when it comes to books I need to try concentrate on getting it finished. This one is a self help book and at the mo it’s got 5 stars from me. It’s small enough to fit into a inside coat pocket or a handbag.
BOURJOIS LIP DUO SCULPT
Last month I went in search for a lipstick that was autumn appropriate in its shade and long lasting. The shade is like the colour of my nails. I believe in this range there’s another 2 or 3. Superdrug or boots normally have make up offers so go spoil yourself.
ROCKETMAN ON DVD
This was another thing I had for my birthday, this was from my Sister.
If you haven’t heard of it it’s a story of Elton John’s life. It was quite sad to see what he went through to get to where he is now . It did have Happy moments in it and alot of his music. So if you like films that are like musicals, you’ll love this one.
QUOTE OF THE MONTH
Not much of an explanation needed just some people are worth the second chance and some are not worth your energy.
I hope you have had a lovely October…
Feel free to leave below something that made your month
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.
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 🙈
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.
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.
