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

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.

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 …

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.

HERMIONE CHANTAL

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.

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?

My Morning Routine

Everybody has a routine when it comes to getting up and going to bed and this is one of my typical mornings and i thought i’d share it with you.

Generally i get up at 8 in the morning if i don’t beat my alarm. I always think its fun to have something to greet you when the alarm goes off. Here are a few of my examples

18362022_10155380414344479_1068238670_o

I can’t help myself i have a quick nosey on social media, sometimes for longer than needed. Before you know it 45 mins have been wasted.

18406165_10155380413669479_1635544343_o

Once i’m out of bed its downstairs to fuel my body and this is my usual breakfast

18297209_10155380414309479_763424114_o

I can’t go a day without listening to music so on goes Spotify and out comes the hairbrush and me singing slightly out of tune

18425690_10155380415074479_961451411_n

If i remember i bring my journal down and write away whatever comes into my head whether its important or just me rambling. i allow myself 15 mins for that.

18362617_10155380413789479_449707861_o

So i don’t forget i head upstairs to clean my teeth for the recommended 2 mins.

18362682_10155380415144479_1004741977_o

I take a soak in the bath or a quick shower depending on what time i have.

18426322_10155380478289479_197212423_o

Then cleanse, tone and moisturise my face ready to then clog it up again

18379613_10155380414084479_428549319_o

On goes the face that makes me confident but doesn’t define me as a person

18379061_10155380414024479_1217280185_o

When i have done all the important things i can then start brainstorming and doing a spot of blogging. Online shopping sometimes takes place too.

18378973_10155380413939479_1454054030_o

Occasionally a bit of yoga is incorporated into my morning routine if i am stressed out about anything.

18378698_10155380414194479_1098290244_o

Then its lunchtime….My favourite time of day 🙂

See you tomorrow for day two of daily blogging

much loves

Currently Loving |April Edition

Here’s a different take on monthly favourites that i may use and adapt in future posts

~

Reading…. The poetic underground

Erin Hanson is such a talented woman and decided to buy her book even though i have all of her poems saved on Pinterest.

Watching….Girl Boss

Taken from the book #GIRLBOSS Netflix have turned it into a series i am loving it so far seeing how she builds up her status i am about 5 episodes in. So far so good.

Girlboss

Eating….Milky ways always been a favourite

When i was little and had a spare 15p i would toddle off to the shop for one of these now i can get a few multipacks and they aren’t too fattening either.

Writing….My next book – still in the planning process

I wrote my personal story and published it last month and i want to write another book. It gave me such a buzz.

Wearing…. Pale pink

topshop-pale-pink-knitted-clean-rib-crop-jumper-product-1-6209641-072241617

i’m obsessed at the mo but then again anything pink is great. It’s my favourite colour.

Listening to…. A playlist on spotify

I made it when i was in hospital a bit cheesy but i love it ( Wham, Chesney Hawkes and Whitney to name a few)

Quote I’m loving….

Lets hope I can report that next month there has been sunshine, very typical English weather.
