MARCH FAVOURITES

As March has been a bit of a right off for me I thought I’d just wrack my brains for some things that have bought a smile to my face.

FOOD

Noisette potatoes… Had them in the hospital bit of nostalgia from my childhood. Like little balls of potato in batter. Delish.

SONG

Jim Reeves – I love you because. My poorly great aunt ( who’s had a stroke) said put Jim reeves on and when I played this she mouthed all the words. Bless her heart. The lyrics are beautiful 😍

LISTEN HERE

APP OF THE MONTH

Pottery lite – it’s therapeutic, you throw a pot then decorate it then sell it at a pretend auction. It’s rather addictive and is good if you want to fill in some empty time.

QUOTE

Purely because of what I’ve endured these past weeks.

Let me know down below something in your March that’s made you happy.

ROLL ON APRIL 🙈

My Monthly Favourites For December

First of all i want to congratulate myself.

I’ve actually managed to stick to a whole year of writing my monthly favourites…small accomplishments and all that.

Anyways lets get on with this months faves.

FAVOURITE SONG

Play by Jax Jones and Years and years. It’s one I’ve very recently discovered and i absolutely love it.

FAVOURITE FOOD

These were things I’d never tried before but without a doubt I’d have it again and again – obviously had sprouts before but not with anything added to them. Stollen is a German cake i think with marzipan, fruit and other yummy things and looks a bit like fruit loaf but it’s so much more fancier.

FAVOURITE APPS

I Really enjoy my instagram stories and it’s good to try stand out. I think last month i done pocket video which can be used anywhere on social. But these 3 are especially for Instagram. Worth downloading to have a play around.

FAVOURITE QUOTE

The quote speaks for itself and doesn’t really need any explanation.

So December is nearly over and it’s been one hell of a month. Roll on the new year i say.

I do hope you all still aren’t eating turkey sandwiches.

(Got to be a long standing Christmas joke)

TTFN – ta ta for now for all who were thinking what on earth does that mean

MONTHLY FAVES – OCTOBER

The end of the month is nearly here so I have gathered together some of my favourites of this October.

October is my favourite for two reasons: Its officially autumn and that’s the season where I feel I am most in love with. Although where I live it is taking the leaves a bit longer to change colour but I am patient, they will in their own time I guess. Secondly, it’s my birthday month. I spent it with family and a few days after my friends which means more to me than any presents. Plus the older you get, the less you get, unless your a lucky so and so.

MY FAVOURITE SONG

This song by Jess Glynne gives me all the feels. It’s about not needing makeup to feel beautiful. I grew up plastering myself in the stuff because I felt ugly without. If you need that self-confidence pick me up song this is it.

MY FAVOURITE FOOD

img_0107

With a birthday you always got to have Cake and alcoholic beverages and in my case, we had a cheese night too. My Nannys favourite cakes were always Mr Kiplings Country Slices so they were bought in memory of her and because they are yummy. One friend bought some cupcakes, I mean who doesn’t love a cupcake? All in all, I put on about 3 or 4 pounds but birthdays are for celebrating anyway.

MY SKINCARE FAVES

img_0108

I never really fork out on skincare products because I think if it doesn’t do my skin any good its a total waste of money. I was willing to take a gamble as my face had become really dry and my normal stuff wasn’t helping in the slightest. I had a nose on Beauty Bay and I stumbled across Mario Badescu. I had heard about their drying lotion being a hit but I wanted something to do the complete opposite. So these 4 things made their way to my house and so far so good. Been a week or so I’ll keep you in the loop in a later post.

QUOTE OF THE MONTH

2018-10-26.png

This is such a powerful quote, it goes for my brother who I won’t ever see, or speak to again – but i hold so many memories of him that I can treasure forever. This also goes for people that are still with us that maybe we don’t see very often but you have so many stories to tell that are stored up in your mind. Those memories are one of a kind and they are yours to keep.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope your October has been awesome too.

Til next time

I have a big butt and I can not lie

I am starting to feel less confident with my body and i think it’s because as i sit down in my wheelchair everything gets squashed by gravity pulling it down. I have always been on a rollercoaster ride with my weight, you can read it here:

food and me – my story

However i have spotted that i am forever grabbing the sugary options and need to really think of the goodness my body needs. I do love healthy food it’s just i am easily led when it comes to a treat.

There’s 10 inches between my waist and my bum. My waist is 30 and my bum is 40. There’s nothing wrong with being an hourglass shape. I just think i owe it to myself to think about how I’m feeding it junk.

I have downloaded this app known to so many of you…

It says i am allowed 1240 calories a day. Which i think is plenty. I just need to even out what i am eating and make sure i am allowing a couple treats but healthier ones otherwise I’d fall off the wagon.

Exercise is hard for me because of my health problems and mobility so going on a diet it is.

I think I’ll start tomorrow as its the beginning of the week and whenever you are on a diet these are the famous words

I will keep you up to date, probably monthly as you may get fed up of me withering on about it.

Let me know your thoughts below.

Its too bloody hot

For someone who is always freezing cold as i suffer with poor circulation, its uncomfortably hot.

We are so lucky at the moment that us English are having this heatwave, as we rarely have a good summer…maybe a few days and that’s it

Hands up who really wants a spot of rain or a storm to break it up?

I know i bloody do.

It’s like as soon as the weather changes you go off eating normal meals and just snack or have salads or barbeque food. The alcohol gets consumed more to cool you down and because you can enjoy a beer garden somewhere.

I guess we shouldn’t moan and just appreciate good weather when we have it.

I’m sorry my blog posts have been a bit hit and miss at the moment I promise once it cools down I’ll be back into the swing of it

Stay safe in the sun

Much loves xxx

A glimpse of the summer

Many apologies for no post on Saturday

I usually write my blog posts and publish them on the same day and it just so happened that we had a few visitors and because the weather was actually nice my Mum took me out for a spin in the wheelchair.

It was so nice to see some sunshine for once. I didn’t need my winter warmers just a hoody.

We ended the day with pie and chips from the chippy. It was bloody lovely.

I hear that England are actually going to have 2/3 days of hot weather this week coming so i best find something summery from last year that still fits fingers crossed.

Heres to a fab week ahead 😘

March – Currently Loving

I actually can’t get over that its the end of March….this year is going so damn fast. You know this is one of my favourite types of posts to write – reflecting on the joyful things from the 3rd month.

  – So lets jump on in

BE MY BABY EU DE PARUM

I only bought this on Friday but I already have fallen in love with it. Primark are smashing it with their fragrances. This was ÂŁ8 for 100ml – such a summery/ romantic scent. Definitely a must for an everyday perfume. I think I am going to have to get an atomiser so i can have some in my bag as the bottle is rather large.

BURLESQUE SOUNDTRACK

This is a beaut of an album. Burlesque is one film I could watch time and time again, wishing I could dance like that. Cher and Christina are fab in it. The songs have quite a sensual beat. Different…but I like different. My favourite song has to be… The beautiful people.

FEARNE COTTON

I have mentioned Fearne on my blog a few times of late…only because I think she is an awesome human being. I love her outlook on a calm/reflective life. She has a pretty cool podcast out ‘Happy Place’ that never disappoints as she delves into the lives of some well-loved celebs. I follow her on Instagram too. Her stories on there are so relatable and that’s why I think I like her.

SAUSAGES

This is new to me was never partial to a sausage (stop laughing) only a vegetarian one but for the last few times we have been out for a meal I have opted for a nice Cumberland one or two. Pair them with egg and chips and a dollop of mayo and it’s a real yummy dish. A bit unhealthy but everyone deserves a treat.

SAMSUNG GALAXY S8

I had been having some issues with my iPhone 6s for a while with the battery needing to be charged 3/4 times a day. I just had enough and found out how much was owing on my contract. It wasn’t a great deal so I upgraded to a Samsung and waved bye-bye to Apple. However, he is now more of a camera/iPod than a phone. The Samsung S8 is really fantastic I love the ease of it and the extras you can do on there and not on the iPhone. I obviously had to get it in pink cos that’s my colour.

QUOTE OF THE MONTH

This is such a simple quote but has a big meaning. I think that ordinary is boring and if you have something different to you than anyone else that’s what makes you extraordinary.

I hope you all have had a good March

Thanks for stopping by, til Next time…
