Throughout my life, if I am being honest I have suffered quite a bit other than my health over the 33 years of my life.
Here are a few I’ll mention:
Bullied severely at school – police were involved come the end
Taken advantage of whilst drunk -shame on them
Sexually abused – Don’t worry I’m fine, there will always be wrong’uns
Had depressive moments – needed medication and outpatient therapy –
I will forever remember these times it’s not easy to just forget those times in my life but it won’t ever define who I am or let it ruin my life. It happened and I can’t change what happened in the past.
I can however help those people who are struggling themselves. It’s the caring side of me. I wished I had more people about in my times of need. I had a few but not that one person who I could tell everything to.
Please remember that there are people out there who can help you whether they are just an ear to listen, someone in a profession that can help you in the right direction or a friend/family member.
Believe it or not, they’ve probably encountered one of your problems and can aid you back to smiley happier you.

Guess who was up before it was necessary on a Sunday morning?
That would be me
So I decided as soon as my body would function that I would give myself a little pampering.
I grabbed a mask I knew wasn’t going to be messy and drip everywhere so this one was the perfect option. I applied it while the bath was running and then removed it when I had got out of it. There’s just something so satisfying about peeling off a mask and trying to get it in one full swoop.
You really can’t beat a bubble bath, I used to love one when I was younger trouble was that I had to share it with my brother…then we would see who could get the most impressive bubble beard. Craig usually won hands down.
For a while, I have been using this for shower gel/ body foam and it makes bubbles like no ones business so if I don’t intend on soaking for ages then I use just this.
There are a few different scents in the range and are usually on offer so I suggest trying a few.
Next, It was exfoliation time and I had to ask Mother dearest to be of assistance as my arms aren’t like Mr Tickles and can’t reach my back.
The Vanilla Marshmallow Body Scrub was part of a set exclusively at Christmas from The Body Shop. It smells bloody beautiful. Over on their website, I think they may have a few bits left in the sale.
After I got out the bath and peeled off the face mask, I still found in my t-zone that I was a bit dry so I grabbed yet another scrub. I have been trying it out for a few months, well since my birthday in October.
This brand is usually found on Beauty Bay. If you are lucky and find out when they have a sale on you can get a few products from the range without hurting your purse.
Lastly, I grabbed my facial mist and gave my face a light spritz.
I love using this cos it wakes you up and leaves your skin smelling lovely too.
This evening I am going to tackle the brows with my trusty tweezers and hopefully won’t take out too many and end up having to pencil them in every day.
Your eyebrows shape your face so you really want to pay attention when you are either plucking/waxing them.
Anyway, there you go my Sunday morning totally unplanned but lovely all the same.
Even though there is only 31 days of January- this month seems to have gone on and on and on. How we can’t wait for it to end….
but first let’s talk through my favourites.
SABRINA THE TEENAGE WITCH THE ORIGINAL SERIES
I remember how I raced home from school to make sure I put this on before my brother hogged the remote control when he got in.
I was pleasantly surprised a few weeks ago to see that E4 was playing reruns of this. So I am reliving my youth of when I wished I could have a talking cat like Salem and another world through our airing cupboard on top of our stairs.
Having my Niece over and going through all the nursery rhymes you can think of and watching her get excited when I knew all the words. She’s precious our Daisy
Got to speak to my Dad on the phone for 45 mins. This is good because he has Dementia so his attention span is usually poor. I love hearing his voice and he still calls me Hol so there’s still a glimmer of hope.
Going to my Cousin 40th Party this weekend just gone. The music was all the oldies and it was a excuse to have a few archers and lemonade. The hangover the next day was minimal so thumbs up.
OLLY MURS – EXCUSES
I have always liked Olly Murs style of singing. All his songs are really catchy. He’ll always get a Darlin‘ in there if you really listen…quite funny actually. It’s good to see him back on our screen in The Voice too.
ALIEN GIFT SET BY MUGLER
Oh my goodness me…after my friend sent me a little sample in a box swap we done I said to my Mum did she wanna chip in and get this gift set with me and it is the most sensual scent my nose have inhaled. Let’s just say I smell bloody lush.
finally I always leave you with a quote so this is my favourite at the mo.
I hope you’ve had some fab moments throughout January. Feel free to share them in the comments below.
