November Favourites

Oh wow I can hardly believe that December is the end of the week.

Β 

Here’s some favourite things that made me smile throughout the month of November

Β 

Connecting with an old school friend. We kept on saying that we would meet up but never did. Then last week I went on a few outings with her and it was just like the olden days πŸ˜‚

Β 

Spending some time with my family (my sister, my brother, my nephew, my niece and my little niece oh and my brothers fiancΓ©) on separate occasions. Family is so precious and we have such a lovely bond too.


My wig of course and this is one of my favourite quotes too. I can’t wait til my hair is this length. May be waiting for some time.



My lush bras from Ann summers. They truly make my boobs feel loved as they fit so well. So don’t worry about paying a little more to get comfort and prettiness.My favourite song this month has to be

Orphans by Coldplay. It just gets in my head when it comes on the radio.


Naughty me may have been to McDonalds once or twice this month and these are what I have got both times… Chicken nuggets and cheesy melt dippers.Β  Yummy delicious πŸ˜‹This has to be one of my best finds this month in the way of a quote.

What’s been a favourite of yours this month?

Thanks for stopping by

Til next time 😘

A decade ago

So this is a funny looking back kind of post.

So here’s some photos from that year 2009

Top left is my mate Johnny, middle left is my brother, bottom left is my best friend from school Soph.

Top right is my sister, then middle right is me on a night out and bottom right is school friend Katie.

Of course a throwback post has to have a playlist so this one has a few absolute bangers

I have to cringe at the next thing… Some Facebook statuses.

Clearly I was a little bit horned up. The two men were colin Firth and Hugh Grant. In my dreams πŸ˜‚

My FMB boots, back then knee highs or over the knee boots were called fuck me boots. Funny I know.

I am positive in one of my girly mags I had read that fact about multiple sneezes were the same feelings of an orgasm. Maybe for some people but a sneeze for me has never felt like an orgasm ha ha.

10 years ago… when I was 24 I didn’t have a care in the world. Still lived at home until 2 years later… That’s when I really grew up.

I like looking back at my memories especially when you can have a laugh and reminisce.

Those so called friends

Do you have those people who you know will be at the end of the phone… If you ring them / message or knock on THEIR door.

But no way would they go out of their way to fit you into their day.

Don’t be made a fool of, or walked over. They’ll make you a laughing stock of you without you knowing.

Be with the ones who will change their plans if you needed them.

The ones who laugh along with you, because they love spending time with you.

Prioritise your people accordingly

Til next time 😘

Q and A Time

I absolutely love reading other people’s Q and A’s so I thought I’d do my own. Here are some questions I was asked…

Why did you start blogging?

Ever since I was a little girl I’ve been so in love with writing. So when I found out about blogging and others reading what you write I just had to join in this fab community. Never looked back.

What do you do to unwind?

I think putting on your pjs after a nice soak in the bath, curling up in a blanket with a hot water bottle and some eye candy on Tele is just my idea of unwinding.

What’s one thing you wish you could have told your younger self?

That no matter what life throws at you, don’t let it get you down. Be brave and plod on the best way you can.

How long have you and your best friend been best friends?

Oh my, we have been friends our whole life. Well I’m 8 months older than Jessica but our mums have been great friends even before we were both born. Our nicknames came 15 years later, hers is Trev and Mine is Bertie πŸ™ˆ

What’s one item of clothing that you will never wear again even if it’s come back in fashion?

Oh that is easy – A shell suit. I mean I adored my pink one at the time but to give my honest opinion… it was a hideous item of clothing and let’s hope they don’t come round a second time. Sorry mum lol.

Do you regret anything?

Yes I regret losing my virginity when I did with who I did. If only I could turn back the clock I’d definitely not have made that mistake. Generally I try and live with no regrets.

Man crush / Woman crush?

Oooo Colin Firth and Cameron Diaz. This hasnt changed for years.

One beauty product you can’t live without?

I’d say foundation simply because you can just put a bit of it on to give you a bit of a colour if you’re looking tired or a bit pale or need to conceal some spots.

Physically, what do you look for in a potential boyf?

I’ve always looked at eyes first they tell so much and a nice jaw line (yeah I know I’m a bit weird)

Your moto in life?

Live Laugh Love

Its something i think we all should do every day. Live life to its fullest, laugh, its the best medicine. Lastly love with all your heart.

I hope you enjoyed finding out a bit more about me.

Til next time my beauts xx

When friends turn toxic

Those friends who say they will be there for you in good times and bad, then when the going gets tough they are nowhere to be seen. If you don’t phone/text them they couldn’t give two hoots what your up to or how you’re doing.

There are also the friends that are nice to your face and bitch about you to others behind your back. You don’t need them, even if you have been friends for years. Friends don’t do that.

Here is a list of toxic people you need to eliminate from your life to make it better for you:

  1. Those who spread negativity
  2. Those who criticize you all the time
  3. Those who waste your time
  4. Those who are jealous
  5. Those who play the victim
  6. Those who don’t care
  7. Those who are self-centred
  8. Those that keep disappointing you

 

You need to look after yourself and if those people are more of a hindrance than help then you need to say bye-bye. Don’t think you are a horrible person because you’re anything but.

You can choose where you want those memories of them to go, to forget and bin them or to keep them stored away, the choice is yours.

I’ve always been taught to treat people as I want to be treated.

Lets go to the beach

Its a week late but i thought I’d write about it anyways.

Last Friday evening my friend Lee who I’ve known absolute ages phoned and said did i want to go to the beach with him…that’ll be lovely i said.

So off we toddled in his car to a beach down on the coast called Lyme Regis. On the way there Lee was getting anxious as his petrol was low and thought we may get stranded. Luckily there was one that was 20 mins from closing and we filled up there.

Finally we arrived and the sun was still out. I got as close as i could to see a decent enough view of the sea. It was lovely and calm.

I have no idea who those two are but sitting on those pebbles can’t be comfy.

We stopped in this little seaside shop that was selling fudge and me having a sweet tooth couldn’t resist. Lee treated us both to some and because it was starting to rain we got in the car and parked as near as we could to the sea front to still enjoy the experience.

So we sat there chatting watching the rain bounce off the windscreen and see the lights across the sea as it got dark quite quickly when it started to rain. We listened to this playlist nearly all the way through before making our way back.

Can’t beat a bit of cheese especially witb your friend. We laughed at a few of them and said oh my i was this old when this song came out. Even though it wasn’t a day at the beach like most people have i really enjoyed it.

Roll on the next time and the next beach.
