10 Ways To Body Confidence

One aim i want you to strive for this summer and carry on the rest of your life is this…   Body Confidence 

These 10 ways will help you on your way and if you put them into action you soon wont need to look at the list to see what needs to be done to achieve it because you will have it.

Lets get into them…

  • Appreciate all that your body can do – It gets up in the morning, it feeds you, you walk around and you exercise it. Be thankful that yours works as some peoples do not.

 

  • Keep a top 10 list of things you like about yourself -Things that aren’t related to how much you weigh or what you look like. So we are looking at your beautiful inside. I will do a blog post on this topic soon.

 

  • Remind yourself that Beauty is not only skin deep – Those so called perfect pictures you see on Instagram that have most likely been edited and staged to hell. You are much more than that. Beauty shouldn’t be taken at face value.

 

  • Look at yourself as a whole person and don’t just focus on one body part. Loving the whole of you is so much better

 

  • Surround yourself with positive people – Those people that lift you up and think your a fabulous human being those are the people you want in your life. The others you just gotta wave bye bye to.

 

  • Shut down the voices that tell you that you are not perfect – Whoever invented that word was silly as people strive to be perfect and hate themselves for not measuring up to someone else. You be you and let them be them.

 

  • Wear clothes that are comfortable and make you feel good – Theres no point putting on those 5 inch heels because you saw them on someone else and they rocked them if you can’t walk in them and you don’t usually wear them. Have your own unique style and own it.

 

  • Look at social media / magazines in a constructive and positive way – Don’t slate the photos of females you think aren’t owning their look if you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say it at all. Us women were born to build each other up not tear each other down.

 

  • Do something nice for yourself and let your body know its appreciated – Buy it some new clothes or give it a nice soak in the bath with some bubbles. Every body loves a good pampering i know mine does . Love your body.

 

  • Send out a good message to others doubting their body – There are so many of us that are looking for body confidence and once you have got yours you can help others as well.

Don’t forget these 10 write them down, share them and use them.

Currently Loving: June Edition

Here we are again the time of the month where i get to reflect on my Monthly Favourites

June you have bought me sun, a little tan and laughter along with these things below.

READING

While sorting though my chest of drawers i came across these antique diaries…shamefully mine. They are my school years so it was funny to see who i fancied and what my writing style was like. Check out the cosmopolitan freebie.

WATCHING

All my illnesses have made themselves quite apparent this month so i have spent a few days in bed and YouTube never disappoints when i need cheering up.

I stumbled across this one of Carlton off The Fresh Prince it sure made me smile.

EATING

By now you should know that i have a bit of a sweet tooth and back when i was younger my Nan always liked Malt Loaf and i was a bit partial to it too. Sadly my Nan isn’t around to enjoy these snack packs that Morrisons have. Every time i open the cupboard and see these i think ‘Nans Favourite’ and now they are mine too.



WRITING

At the moment i am just concentrating on my blog and filling up my notepad with ideas and the odd poem happens to come to mind and i quickly jot it down before i forget. Maybe in the coming months i may plan on writing another book. Who knows?



WEARING

The flower crown came out when we had our mini heatwave and it is festival season so i was getting into the spirit of it and having my own since the crowds at them scare me shitless. The sunnies are an everyday accessory now Summer is here whether they are on my head or my face.

LISTENING

I have only recently found this Summer Throwback playlist. There are so many that when they come on i’m like ‘I love this one’

Scroll down and have a nosey see which ones you like too.

Apologies If you are reading this on the laptop and see that the playlist isn’t central. I need to figure out how to do it.

QUOTE OF THE MONTH

So many quotes i’ve seen on Pinterest but i thought since its the beginning of the Summer it was quite fitting.

Oh great, its bloody raining as i end this post…Never mind roll on July. Only a few days away.

What i plan to do with my blog

I been doing some thinking….and no this is not mine but i so would wear one just for times when i needed to collect some important thoughts.

s-l225

I want my blog to have a variety of things as of late its all been a bit of a personal experience overload. So here’s the conclusion i have come to…..


  • Along the top of my blog you will see Categories and if you hover over them you will see some of my posts i have written. Here you will find posts i feel will be of interest and will hopefully help someone. Well i hope that with all my posts but its just something different i guess.

So each post i write will fit into one of these categories:

PERSONAL – BEAUTY/REVIEWS – POSITIVE THINKING – HEALTH – QUOTES –

WORDS OF WISDOM – MONTHLY FAVOURITES


  • I want to include tracks and playlists here is one song that always gets me singing and slightly out of tune. Good old Ed.

ED SHEERAN – GALWAY GIRL

download


  • When my throat is ok i want to add voice messages to my blogs but at the mo it hurts to speak. All part of my illness i am learning to live with but i will try to record on the good days.

  • When i started blogging it was because i wanted a hobby. Now i really look forward to writing and creating content. Not sponsored by anyone and don’t get free stuff sent to me. I have thought about it and come to the conclusion that it would take the fun out of it.

What you read and the things that you see are all things bought by me and my own words.

stay true

Much love and here’s to a fantastic week…

Monday Motivation 101

3ad2c6414bc4675137b8a9fd69e000db

Its Monday, the beginning of a new week and most of us get that immediate feeling of dread of oh no its Monday. Yes it’s the end of a weekend where you probably could relax a bit more and enjoy a bit of freedom but now its the start of a brand new week and it should be exciting and not mundane.

If you have these 3 things then great if not they would be worth investing in

A collection of Sticky Notes

19141407_10155493449809479_1064708151_n

A Diary to keep events in etc

 19114484_10155493449589479_415753544_n

A Planner Pad

0445276_l

  • With your sticky notes write some positive affirmations on there to get you in  fabulous mood for the week ahead. No matter how silly you think they are if they are going to perk you up and make you feel good its worth it every time.
  • Keeping a diary is one of the best things you can do. Not only can you put in things that you can look forward to but also the things that have made you happy. One productive thing no matter how small should be noted. The little things can become the big things one day.
  • You can pick these planner pads up pretty cheap i think mine was £2 from Wilkos.  They are really good if you need a kick up the bum to get chores done. Kind of like a to do list but with a much better layout and looks prettier than a tatty piece of paper.

 

I have gathered a few motivational quotes on this slideshow especially for getting you in the mood for Mondays…You can also follow my Motivational board over on Pinterest.

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Remember it doesn’t have to be a Monday to get motivated it just helps start the week off fresh. That’s the way i look at it.

 

Have a fab week …

So without further ado here is a nosey at whats made me happy during May.

Reading…..

18902151_10155454899329479_2002395952_n

Tequila and teabags is a new read for me but i can tell its going to be a fav for sure it has been written so relatable to many twenty somethings facing life changing choices its a story not a self help book i can’t wait to find out what happens.

Watching….

i am absolutely loving YouTube and  these three totally different girls are the videos i’m binge watching at the moment.

Eating…

You guessed it i have a chocolate favourite again. its not going to be one for much longer as i’ve over indulged this month and put on 4 pounds. So next months WILL NOT be chocolate. But these are so bloody yummy and i’ve always been a fan of Turkish Delights.

18816781_10155454899454479_47453849_n

Writing…

As you know i love to write in any form and i wrote a poem for my mums birthday and this was it, may i add she cried. Bless her.

Wearing…

i haven’t found anything so pretty and comfy at the same time until now i have a pair of pom pom sandals from Primark of all places and for £10 i wish they did this style if shoe in every colour my feet felt so supportive.

Listening to…

I have always loved Miley Cyrus ever since Hannah Montana and when i heard her new song i was like yes the old Miley is back and she hasn’t failed to impress. It’s beautiful.

Click on pic to listen on YouTube its been listened to 98,000,000 times. Not all by me 🙂

Quote of the month…
This has to be one of the most touching quotes to a creative soul like myself and many of you of course from the legendary Robin Williams.

Inspirational quotes 

       

I always tried to fit in back in the day now I make sure I stand out a mile. You don’t have to change completely just be yourself.

      
This always reminds me of Macy Grays song ‘I try’ . In life things are going to trip you up make it look like you were meant to and it was a dance move all along.

 
We all make mistakes some big, some small just remember what it taught you and move on with life. Nobody’s perfect.

When you are trying to be strong you want someone to believe in you and give you the support you want. Well here’s the sign.

No truer words spoken. A quote is like a lyric if you understand it it can have the biggest impact on your life. Ideas make dreams a reality too so never stop writing down your weird and wonderful ideas.

Women I admire 

When i was younger there were women i yearned to be like.

As i have got older they have become people i look up to and admire for all they are.

Here are a handful of the ones that i wanted to include:

img_9573

My wonderful Mum – a woman who i want to turn after. Shes the most caring and hardworking person i know and my heart beats because of her and i love her to the moon and back.

898a2974cf69b9025cddf3c726d3fc40

Meryl Streep – I think she has been my favourite actress since i can remember. Shes a fierce and powerful woman and funny too.

e94685780a4087b39501b1cea63341fb

Zoella – i love how Zoella has not let her anxiety get in the way of her dreams and shes an amazing role model to girls and women.

8fdf47d9b9a091440fe19b7199e6efe1

Ellen Degeneres – I really admire how Ellen has fought the haters who frowned upon her sexuality at the beginning of her career and showed them she can and is a successful well loved women regardless of who she decides to fall in love with.

788b0cb34cd7ab84d78c74db0dfa89bf

Emma Watson – I take my hat off to Emma she is not afraid to use her voice for what she believes in and i love that shes so effortlessly beautiful too.

and finally a woman who is no longer with us

8f58581a082872983822efa6089a84a1

Cilla Black – I grew up seeing her on my TV screen every Saturday night and then my Mum introduced me to her music when i was a little older. She was such a wonderful woman who had a heart of gold and made me have a lorra lorra laughs (in her liverpool accent) and i miss her very much two years on.

So there you are….who would be yours?
