I want you to bear in mind this is just the basics that i have in my bag at one time as a woman you know our handbags feel like we have bowling balls in them and have sooo much stuff we really don’t need.

  • As i love to write i make sure i have my great ideas notepad and a pen.
  • My boots floral Make up bag with my concealer, to hide my dark circles, my eyeliner and a pink lippy of course
  • I always have some sort of hand cream and The Body Shop Strawberry one smells so good and leaves my hands so soft.
  • I either have a chocolate bar or something sweet in my bag as i’m addicted to sugar and at the mo its Tangfantastics.
  • Something a lot of you wont have is catheters in your bag i have about 5-6 in my bag at a time as i have a bladder stoma so when nature calls i’m prepared for it.
  • Everyone needs some paracetamol in their bag for when pain strikes.
  • I have my Sony A5000 camera for taking photos of whatever catches my eye i like to capture things in the moment.
  • I am not a huge fan of chewing gum so a packet of soft mints it is. your breath is always better being minty fresh.
  • My purse was a charity shop find. It was brand new and still inits wrapper so i thought for £3 your coming home with me.
  • A pair of Sunnies as British weather is so unpredictable you never know when you are going to need them.
  • My Iphone because who leaves home without theirs these days…Not me.
  • My HP Stream laptop as a blogger its always great to write your posts up wherever you are and this one has a touch screen too so i can draw on it too which i love.

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.

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.

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.

What i plan to do with my blog

I been doing some thinking….and no this is not mine but i so would wear one just for times when i needed to collect some important thoughts.

s-l225

I want my blog to have a variety of things as of late its all been a bit of a personal experience overload. So here’s the conclusion i have come to…..


  • Along the top of my blog you will see Categories and if you hover over them you will see some of my posts i have written. Here you will find posts i feel will be of interest and will hopefully help someone. Well i hope that with all my posts but its just something different i guess.

So each post i write will fit into one of these categories:

PERSONAL – BEAUTY/REVIEWS – POSITIVE THINKING – HEALTH – QUOTES –

WORDS OF WISDOM – MONTHLY FAVOURITES


  • I want to include tracks and playlists here is one song that always gets me singing and slightly out of tune. Good old Ed.

ED SHEERAN – GALWAY GIRL

download


  • When my throat is ok i want to add voice messages to my blogs but at the mo it hurts to speak. All part of my illness i am learning to live with but i will try to record on the good days.

  • When i started blogging it was because i wanted a hobby. Now i really look forward to writing and creating content. Not sponsored by anyone and don’t get free stuff sent to me. I have thought about it and come to the conclusion that it would take the fun out of it.

What you read and the things that you see are all things bought by me and my own words.

stay true

Much love and here’s to a fantastic week…

Take your top off if you wish:My thoughts 

I have never wrote anything like this on my blog but it was something that was bought to my attention as the weather has got hotter here in England. So i thought why not speak up about it.

I myself grew up hating my body because society said that going through puberty and becoming a woman you were most likely going to get picked on because you had spots and curves and boobs coming way too early and you just didn’t fit in with everyone elses body your age.

I NOW DON’T LET ANYONE TELL ME THAT THE BODY I WAS BORN WITH ISN’T BEAUTIFUL AND I CELEBRATE IT EACH AND EVERY DAY

 BUT THIS REALLY GETS TO ME BEING A WOMAN….

I see all of these men at the moment walking around with their shirts off some of them are well into their 70s but thats not the issue here. its very acceptable for a man to get his chest out because he is hot but as soon as we decide that maybe we are too hot for a top too its bang out of order.

I DISAGREE

Having a pair of boobs, breasts, tits whatever you want to call them is an amazing thing and not in the way that A LOT of narrow minded people see them…they see them as sexual objects and that they should only be out when you want some attention to them like sex or just for someone to say – ” nice pair love”

The female breasts should be treated no differently than a mans. Having yours out of clothes should be free kind of feeling and not a oh my god i am sending out the wrong message. Some people have to have them removed or reconstructed for medical reasons and that should never be frowned upon . They should be celebrated no matter how big or small they are…they feed children which is something pretty awesome in itself.

If it became legal and acceptable i would not be ashamed to put mine on show as i’m proud of what i have and nobody should ever put anybody’s body down

JUST CONCENTRATE ON YOUR OWN
