Sorry had to include that gif in… That was back in my youth so its kind of fitting for todays post. I thought I’d have a look back at the things that remind me of my youth…
These shoes were what were in fashion, I had all three at some point in the late 90’s and the early noughties.
I also owned a pair of pink flared cords quite similar to these Kate Spade ones. I definitely stood out like a sore thumb.
I enjoyed going to gymnastics, so once you mastered the bench turned upside down you were allowed on the balance beam 🙈
My make up bag had these two in and I’m pretty sure I was patchy, and orange and the blemishes were not concealed. But hey we learn by our mistakes
Finally these two mags. What sex education we weren’t getting in school we sure were getting them in here. I believe most of us 16 year old girls would flick through the pages of more to see what sex position of the fortnight was. Ha ha.
Feel free to share something that reminds you of your school days as a teenager.
This is not too festive but it’s wintery so let me off.
This is what kind of outfit I would wear if it wasn’t so damn cold outside this winter.
I’m yet to get myself a pink Teddy coat but really would like one – also one that didn’t cost the earth.
I have actually ordered myself a hooded jumper dress from boohoo so fingers crossed it looks lush.
A nice chunky boot as I can’t walk in heels and I own a few wedge boots so these look different. Hoping to buy these after Christmas.
A plaid scarf never goes out of fashion. I’ve had mine for a few years and wear them every winter.
Love a bobble hat and have this exact one it was a Primark special.
Though today I am sporting a Christmas Jumper just to get the wear out of it.
You know everybody is going to join in on Christmas jumper wearing throughout December so why not be a sheep this once and follow.
Here’s a handful I found on Pinterest that I’d definitely wear
Some are really hideous and cringe worthy but these I think are totally wearable.
Think my favourite ones are the first and last one.
15 days to go 🎄 that’s if you’re counting xx
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
Til next time
Today it really has felt autumnal, to the point I heard my mum say those magic words
“Hol, shall we put the heating on?”
Autumn is actually my favourite season. I love how you can get nice and cosy under a blanket with the candles and if you’re lucky enough an open fire and watch all the TV you like.
I have even started looking on Pinterest for fashion inspiration for this colder weather so I thought I’d share a few bits I like with you.
There will be more autumn themed posts throughout Sept and October so keep an eye out
Til next time… Much loves
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
