It’s that time again where I wrack my brains to see what I can include in my monthly favourites.
So here we go.
I’ll start with what happened right at the start of the month… I had my hair cut off and I bloody love it
SO…? STRAWBERRIES AND CREAM BODY MIST
I saw this in Boots while browsing at the make up it was situated at the end of the aisle. Smells like a dream and good enough to eat. Nice to put on when you don’t want to put your expensive perfume on.
Always loved Miley Cyrus even in way back in her Hannah Montana days.
She is coming is her new album. At the there is only 6 on there o Spotify let’s hope she adds some more.
MY LEOPARD PRINT SANDALS
These were accidentally stumbled upon whilst browsing some summer clothes on ASOS. Aren’t they just lovely, they are a little heavy but they are so comfy. Simple but stylish.
REVLON CUSHION LIP TINT
My lips adore this lip tint from Revlon. It goes on more like a matte lipstick and stays on at least 8 hours which I think is fab for a lip tint. Love it so much I’ve purchased another one just incase they sell out 🙈
For a while after surgery I lost my appetite a bit. The one thing that got me eating again was hummous. I usually dip cucumber and carrots in. If there’s none of them it’s a packet of crisps. Luckily they also do a 30% less fat so I don’t feel too guilty whilst eating it.
If you are looking for an app that you can edit, make collages on, edit videos and add a bit of music then inshot is it. Of course with most apps there are in app purchases but to be honest you can do so much on here without having to buy anything. Go download it and have a play around.
QUOTE OF THE MONTH
Just love meaningful quotes and this one is perfect.
Thanks for stopping by
Here’s to July
Til next time
Apart from the few days of sunny sunshine here are some of my favourite bits.
You know one of those songs that come on the radio or is recommended on a Spotify playlist and you think I really like this song. Well this one by Lissa Lo called All I need is one of those. I’ve got the chorus as my ringtone as I don’t like your bog standard ones 🙈
These have always been a fave but particularly this month. Needed a pick me up and they were there for me
We worry so much about things that have happened and realistically we can’t do anything about so this quote says it all.
As I’m still healing from having my bladder removed I’ve not really ventured very far but I did manage one day with mum to go down town in the wheelchair and spend some cash.
I got a few toiletries in boots – make up can wait, then went and got some pjs in Peacocks and some undies. On our way home there is a St Margarets Hospice charity shop so we decided to have a nosey. I got about 6 or 7 items which I’ll show you once the weather’s warmer. I always like to give my unwanted clothes to them as that was the hospice my brother was at.
Little victories this month 😊
Oooo and I managed some chips from the chippy since my appetite has been a bit pants this was a real treat.
What’s been your faves this month?
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.
Noisette potatoes… Had them in the hospital bit of nostalgia from my childhood. Like little balls of potato in batter. Delish.
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 😍
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.
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 🙈
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.
Play by Jax Jones and Years and years. It’s one I’ve very recently discovered and i absolutely love it.
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.
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.
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
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
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
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
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.

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.
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
