Ways to stay organised

1

I never used to be organised, I would just shove stuff in a drawer or at the bottom of the wardrobe until I couldn’t fit anything else in then it was a case of having to sort it out. But as I have matured a bit over the years I think that nothing is worse than living in chaos.

So I have come up with some things that I like to keep on top of to make me feel like I have my shit together.

❤️Organise closet/cupboard/wardrobe wherever you put your clothes. I find putting them in sections of colour is gonna so when you are feeling red for example you can go to your red items and take your pick. Alternatively you can have one end for best and the other end for casual

❤️Making time for a Morning/evening routine. You don’t need a long list of things just some essentials that will make your day/night easier

❤️Sort apps on phone into folders -it’ll keep it looking tidy and you’ll know where all the necessary ones are

❤️Use a notepad or planner to make the most out of your day, with to do lists, meal plans, places to go and people to see.

❤️Delete unwanted photos/messages/numbers on your phone to free up space.

❤️If you can clean as you go, if not allocate some time in your day to do it instead of letting it all mount up. Delegate your load with others in the house if you don’t live alone.

❤️Keep tabs on your spending so you can see what you are getting that you need and can be justified as a reasonable buy and those that aren’t need to be cut back so you’ll have some savings for a rainy day.

❤️Keep your bedroom as spotless as you can as this is for relaxing and unwinding.

❤️Declutter anything that serves you no purpose anymore ( I’ll do another post on this soon. )

❤️Pack bag, food and outfit for the next day the night before do you won’t be faffing about in the morning.

I hope you can use these in your daily life to make it less stressful

What makes you feel confident and sexy?

0

In your bedroom whether it’s just you or you have the company of someone else too, don’t you like to feel confident and sexy yet comfortable at the same time?

I know i do.

Well i was approached by a lovely lady from UK LINGERIE and she asked if i would like to pick out a few bits from their website.

Being a bit curvy i wanted something that would compliment me but look sensual and pretty at the same time.

You would never know i have a huge surgery scar because the knickers are concealing it so well. The bra is so comfortable and gives enough cleavage without being too over the top, but to be fair i don’t have much always.

I am due to have a urostomy bag in the upcoming months and i no doubt will still feel amazing in these shorts plus supporting a bag too. This is the lepel fiore black and gold padded bra and the lepel fiore black and gold shorts

I also thought i don’t have any nice pyjamas that could double up as loungewear, so that’s what i went in search of and then i found these beauties.

These are the Dreamgirl off the shoulder pj set

They are the softest pair of pyjamas I’ve ever come across.

I have pulled the top up a bit so you could see the waistband on the bottoms. I’m a complete sucker for pink as you know but the bit of lace detailing just makes them even more lovely.

The off the shoulder look gives a bit of a sensual look about them.

I got these in a size 12 and they fit like a glove. My bra was also in my normal bra size so they really are true to my size.

I will definitely be purchasing fromUK LINGERIE in the future and a few of my friends have said they will too which is great.

I hope you enjoyed reading and I’ll see you in my next post.

Are they fabulous or hideous – FASHION TALK

6

I was browsing on good old ASOS and if you didn’t know this you will now… when online shopping I put pink in the search but no matter what site I’m shopping on. I guess I’m that person that’s never grown out of the obsession with the colour pink.

So here’s the thing, in the summery months I fancy standing out a bit, you know making a statement. So I thought let’s have a look on ASOS at their trainers and you guessed it in the colour pink.

Here is my findings

FILA PINK DISRUPTOR II PREMIUM TRAINERS

these I really can’t decide if I think they are ugly or kinda cool… they are £85.00 I would definitely stand out in a pair of these.

BUFFALO LONDON FLATFORM CHUNKY TRAINERS IN PINK

I had a pair of these in black when I was 18 and wore them all the time. I remember they were £89.00 and I’d spent my birthday money on them. I am shocked at the price now. They have doubled to £180. I do love the colour but I wouldn’t ever spend that much on a pair of trainers.

NIKE WHITE AND PINK AIR MAX 95 TRAINERS

Out of all the trainers I’ve stumbled across these ones would be the ones I’d get…if I went to the gym of course or ran miles and miles. Unfortunately I can’t justify spending £130.00 when I won’t be walking in them. They’d just be looking pretty in my wheelchair.

CONVERSE X HELLO KITTY ONE STAR TRAINERS

Maybe if I was 10 years younger I would possibly buy these Hello Kitty themed converse trainers but I’m in my 30s I don’t think I would look very grown up in them. They are quite a reasonable price at £56.00. Maybe if the cat was off the back I may of bought them.

VANS EXCLUSIVE RED AND PINK CHECKERBOARD SLIP ON TRAINERS

These I totally dig but unfortunately at the mo they don’t have them in my size only an 8 or 9 and I’m a 5.5 so I’ll have to keep nosing. Think they must be in the sale as they are £30.00 so I won’t hold my breath.

I will be trying to include a bit more fashion because after all it’s what we wear 99% of the time when we aren’t naked 🙈

Hope you enjoyed

Until next time

Stand out this summer

1

We are so lucky to have this lovely sunshine in the UK and we all love to visit the beach to make the most of it, and top up our tans.

I bring you this beautiful Peacock paradise designer swimsuit by Delores Cortes which i was kindly sent to feature on my social media platforms from ukswimwear

It is a top Spanish brand in swimwear and to give you my honest opinion i wouldn’t usually pick such a colourful costume. When i saw this one on the website i thought it stood out and would go really nice with my hair colour and my skin tone. I wasn’t wrong. I really like how it looks.

I wanted something i could feel comfortable in as i spend most of the time in a wheelchair and this one doesn’t disappoint. It’s so very well made. As you can see it’s low at the back, i myself have a few lumps and bumps here and there but it holds you in all in the right places.

Bear in mind it comes up small as it comes from Spain and is different sizing to the UK.

I am usually a size 12 but decided to go for a 14 just to be on the safe side and it fits a treat.

I definitely recommend having a nose on the ukswimwear website as there are swimming costumes to suit any budget. They do bikinis, kaftans and cover-ups too.

But please remember a swimsuit isn’t just for the summer it’s for all year round.

July favourites – Currently loving

Its the last day of July and what a lovely glorious one it’s been. Summer is definitely in full swing now. Roll on the next couple of months.

Here’s the best bits from July aka Chapter 7

HOT WEATHER

As I always feel the cold its been so lovely to have hot hot weather. If you aren’t from the UK you won’t know we never get sun this good so it’s quite a treat. I’ve got myself a little tan so I’m happy as I very rarely tan.

SWIMMING COSTUME

20180729_2035202008655681469891661-e1533020910725.jpg

I was drawn to it because of the cactus on it but was utterly blown away when I saw the full price of it in Primark £4…yes I thought you are going in my basket. Can’t say I’d trust it in any swimming pool as it’ll probably be see through but it’s cute.

CATS EYES SUNNIES

20180729_202525-012958753915877875778-e1533021168131.jpeg

I have a few pairs of sunglasses that I have had for donkeys years so I thought I’d treat myself to a pair on ASOS and these were the ones that drew me in. When they came I was hoping they would suit me as it would have been sad to send them back. Luckily they did. They were £12. I’ve worn them every day since. Thumbs up.

SONG OF THE MONTH

Since I was about 7 I have loved Gabrielle. She’s quirky and her voice really is something else. This is her latest song: SHINE. It is quite catchy. Really hoping she has an album coming out. Will keep my ears open for it.

BULLET JOURNAL

So many times this year I started making a bullet journal and it just didn’t look right, I wasn’t happy with how I was setting it out. I felt unmotivated to carry it on. So I came across this little beauty on Amazon for £4.99 and I thought if this doesn’t work then bullet journaling isn’t for me. We have a winner. It’s kept me very productive and organised. May do a flip through on here at some point.

QUOTE OF THE MONTH

screenshot_20180731-074459_onenote1438858363775409674.jpg

I always do this, I like people to feel happy with themselves. You never know how much of a positive impact it would have on someone.

Along with these favourites I have seen two of my lifelong friends get wed a week ago, well their evening do. They had been together 13 years and thought best do it. They live on a farm so the evening do was in a barn. My wheelchair needed a clean when we got home but it was so worth it.

August is only a day away…

let the sun shine on.

My May Favourites

0

As I am writing this there are 2 days of May left,

It’s been a lovely one especially for the glorious weather we’ve had… I have actually got a little tan coming on.

Here’s what has also made me happy this month.

LOVERDOSE PERFUME

diesel-loverdose-parfemova-voda-s-rozprasovacem

This has always been my number one perfume. I reckon I’ve been wearing it on and off for about 6 years. The bonus this month is that I went into Boots to get some toothpaste and happened to catch a glimpse of this in the perfume cabinet. Normally it retails for £37.00 and it was on sale for £29.99. Safe to say it went straight in my bag.

MY MAY PLAYLIST

These are my top 10 songs that I’ve been loving lately. When they come on the radio I can’t help but sing along. Normally on Spotify I am trying to find songs that take me down memory lane but I thought I would listen to more recent hits and I’m impressed.

DISTRESSED DENIM JACKET

20180528_2217557213673163304431435.jpg

I used to have a cropped denim coat a few years back but then I gained a little bit of weight and had to donate it. I went nosing on all the online shops I could think of to try and find a nice one and this beaut was on ASOS. It is now out of stock so I am so relieved that I got it when I did. Since I bought it if I need a jacket its the one I’ve been grabbing every time. Safe to say I love it.

THE KISSING BOOTH

45a38850d7cc93849554b98be3d82d5b251a5a99

The Kissing Booth was on my recommended films to watch on Netflix. I decided to watch the trailer and I thought it was quite funny so I watched it. I was quite blown away by how emotional I got. They really thought about the storyline. Its more of a coming of age into adulthood type film but at 32 I must say it had me interested from start to end. I won’t tell you what happened but it’s about a girl, her best guy friend and his hunky brother.

FLOW FREE

xlqxz.jpg

I am not one who really plays games but I needed something that was going to be a distraction when a panic attack struck. I stumbled across this game called Free Flow. As you can see above the aim of the game is that you have to connect the same colour dots without interrupting the flow of the rest. It’s one of those games you can easily get lost in and addicted to. I have it on my laptop, my kindle and my phone. It’s definitely one to try.

QUOTE OF THE MONTH

c60d542467a697046b281fee4976ef73

I always like to include a quote that gets you thinking and has meaning behind it and after seeing this one I thought this ones really good I’ll use it here. This one is telling you that no matter what gets your back up or gets you down, if you make the right choices everything will turn out just fine.

My April Favourites

3

Blimey, didn’t April just fly by…

I have had a think of what things I wanted to put in my favourites and here is what I came up with.

20180425_2214244086476735668719264.jpg

You really won’t believe it but I was nosing around our local St Margarets Hospice Charity Shop and what did I spot on the top shelf but this beauty by Alexa Chung. I had borrowed it from our library a while back and it was £15 online so I thought one day I’ll get it. I managed to save my self a huge amount as it was £1.75. I love it and its pink too which makes me even happier.

20180426_0814378551998120211675952.jpg

I had never purchased from everything5pounds.com and then I saw it on twitter I think and thought I would have a nose and I love what I managed to pick up. A grey sweater with ‘Crush on you’ embroidered on the left boob area. A denim mini skirt which will come in handy for back garden sunbathing. Lastly, a shoulder bag with a cloud and a rainbow. Its just big enough for all my bits and pieces. All 5 pounds each.

This is my ringtone I heard it on the Schwartzkopf advert and thought I was such a catchy tune and hadn’t really heard of Jax Jones before. Its one of those songs that gets you in a happy mood.

Ok, we have Roxanne from thebeautykingdom.com

Then its Abi from Ramblingsofablonde.co.uk

Then Sophia from Sophiaaaxo.com

Finally Gail from Gailhenderson.blog

All 4 of these ladies are funny, kind and inspirational in their own way. I enjoy interacting with them on a daily basis and glad to have met them online and hope to have them as friends for life.

I saw this quote on someones Instagram and I instantly loved it and found it on google to save. I know that the majority of people would be beautiful inside out but there’s a minority that would not. Wouldn’t it be cool though if you could actually do this just for an hour or so?

Thanks for stopping by…

I hope you had a fab April and lets hope May brings us plenty of sunshine.

Just in time for my birthday 

7

Mr postman knocked on the door and handed me a little package. It couldn’t have came on a better day as I wasn’t feeling too jolly so when I opened this it cheered me right up.


It came a few days before my birthday so that was another bonus. It’s another UK SILVER JEWELLERY piece from Ineffabless.

It’s a beautiful necklace with a heart and the infinity sign. It’s 18K white gold-plated sterling silver and partially covered in sparkling crystals.

The thing I love about SILVER NECKLACES UK is that you can wear them with a dress to go out or like I have with my pink suede hoodie.

I’ve had it on ever since I’ve had it. I love the sayings you can put with it…

Everlasting love/ I love you to infinity/forever love

I look forward to browsing on there again soon as I love supporting smaller companies and getting their name out there.

Hair look of the day

2

Just because the summer is over doesn’t mean I can’t have beachy waves in my hair.

Woke up feeling like I needed a bit of volume in my hair so here’s the simple thing I did

With the help of my Babyliss cordless tongs and the ever so faithful Elnett hairspray and a little concentration.

I was able to get some pretty waves going on. Both these were purchased at Boots I think my tongs were £19.99 and the hairspray a little over a fiver.

Not much of a change just a ringlet here and there and a quick run through my hair with my fingers to so it didn’t look too fancy.

They lasted all day which impressed me.

So there you go…. a short but sweet post I wrote when I just couldn’t sleep.

Til next time…

TREAT YOURSELF YOU’RE WORTH IT 

0

When you are getting ready for the day ahead, or a night out with friends, you like to add some pretty accessories or that little piece of jewellery to finish off the look, right?

Something that makes a statement and gets people asking where you got it from and complimenting you on it. Makes you feel good I know it does me.

Jewellery has always been a love of mine from the time I crept into my parents room and went into Mums pretty box by the side of her bed…all things pretty and sparkly. She used to say when you are older you can wear as much jewellery as you like.

I was overjoyed when I was approached by Ineffabless who said I could pick a piece of jewellery of my choice so I went for this beautiful Princess silver ring

img_1338

Its Stirling silver 18k white gold plated with zircon from Swarovski and it really is a pretty little ring to suit anybody’s fingers.

I find it really hard to find a ring that fits nicely as I have such slender fingers so when I slipped it on I was pleasantly surprised that I had a ring that fitted and looked lovely at the same time.

 Ineffabless UK silver jewellery doesn’t just have rings on their website they have a selection of Necklaces, Bracelets, Bangles and Earrings. They can also personalise your chosen piece for you that makes it rather special and it’s very affordable too.

Take a nosey on their website you won’t be disappointed.

Treat yourself, you’re worth it.
