Deep meaningful quotes that give you all the feels

OK. So here are some meaningful quotes that I know you will be able to relate on some level.

Looking at someone past their looks and seeing what they are really all about.

Know that number 1 is you and don’t put someone else’s importance before your own.

You want to conquer something but you need the courage to do it. Spread them wings, get flying.

Finding the right people in life that will make you smile, lift you up and watch you improve in life.

You need to leave the past behind to be able to move forward. I know you’ve heard this one before probably from many people. It’s because it’s so true.

It’s not plain sailing for anyone. You need to know that everybody has bumps in their path of life. Struggles are everywhere, it’s how you handle them.

And that’s your life lesson for today 😂

What makes you feel confident and sexy?

In your bedroom whether it’s just you or you have the company of someone else too, don’t you like to feel confident and sexy yet comfortable at the same time?

I know i do.

Well i was approached by a lovely lady from UK LINGERIE and she asked if i would like to pick out a few bits from their website.

Being a bit curvy i wanted something that would compliment me but look sensual and pretty at the same time.

You would never know i have a huge surgery scar because the knickers are concealing it so well. The bra is so comfortable and gives enough cleavage without being too over the top, but to be fair i don’t have much always.

I am due to have a urostomy bag in the upcoming months and i no doubt will still feel amazing in these shorts plus supporting a bag too. This is the lepel fiore black and gold padded bra and the lepel fiore black and gold shorts

I also thought i don’t have any nice pyjamas that could double up as loungewear, so that’s what i went in search of and then i found these beauties.

These are the Dreamgirl off the shoulder pj set

They are the softest pair of pyjamas I’ve ever come across.

I have pulled the top up a bit so you could see the waistband on the bottoms. I’m a complete sucker for pink as you know but the bit of lace detailing just makes them even more lovely.

The off the shoulder look gives a bit of a sensual look about them.

I got these in a size 12 and they fit like a glove. My bra was also in my normal bra size so they really are true to my size.

I will definitely be purchasing fromUK LINGERIE in the future and a few of my friends have said they will too which is great.

I hope you enjoyed reading and I’ll see you in my next post.

Are they fabulous or hideous – FASHION TALK

I was browsing on good old ASOS and if you didn’t know this you will now… when online shopping I put pink in the search but no matter what site I’m shopping on. I guess I’m that person that’s never grown out of the obsession with the colour pink.

So here’s the thing, in the summery months I fancy standing out a bit, you know making a statement. So I thought let’s have a look on ASOS at their trainers and you guessed it in the colour pink.

Here is my findings

FILA PINK DISRUPTOR II PREMIUM TRAINERS

these I really can’t decide if I think they are ugly or kinda cool… they are £85.00 I would definitely stand out in a pair of these.

BUFFALO LONDON FLATFORM CHUNKY TRAINERS IN PINK

I had a pair of these in black when I was 18 and wore them all the time. I remember they were £89.00 and I’d spent my birthday money on them. I am shocked at the price now. They have doubled to £180. I do love the colour but I wouldn’t ever spend that much on a pair of trainers.

NIKE WHITE AND PINK AIR MAX 95 TRAINERS

Out of all the trainers I’ve stumbled across these ones would be the ones I’d get…if I went to the gym of course or ran miles and miles. Unfortunately I can’t justify spending £130.00 when I won’t be walking in them. They’d just be looking pretty in my wheelchair.

CONVERSE X HELLO KITTY ONE STAR TRAINERS

Maybe if I was 10 years younger I would possibly buy these Hello Kitty themed converse trainers but I’m in my 30s I don’t think I would look very grown up in them. They are quite a reasonable price at £56.00. Maybe if the cat was off the back I may of bought them.

VANS EXCLUSIVE RED AND PINK CHECKERBOARD SLIP ON TRAINERS

These I totally dig but unfortunately at the mo they don’t have them in my size only an 8 or 9 and I’m a 5.5 so I’ll have to keep nosing. Think they must be in the sale as they are £30.00 so I won’t hold my breath.

I will be trying to include a bit more fashion because after all it’s what we wear 99% of the time when we aren’t naked 🙈

Hope you enjoyed

Until next time

Don’t let social media ruin your life

I know as I am writing this it is on some form of social media. But this is our little blogging community and on a whole people are lovely and super inspiring.

Ok let’s get down to it…

INSTAGRAM

You have two typicals that you probably compare yourself to

1) whatever they post they get loads of likes even if you think yours is just as good, it’s the person they are liking most of the time not the pics. Sometimes they do have fabulous feeds. But really it’s nice to get to know the real person behind their Instagram. People are not just photos they are more wonderful than that.

2) No matter how hard you have tried it just doesn’t seem to come close to the followers or likes of the said group of instagrammers above. You get frustrated when you don’t get the appreciation too. Please don’t worry, it doesn’t make you any less of a person. Its only an app after all.

FACEBOOK

Don’t get me wrong, facebook is a wonderful thing to keep in contact with friends and relatives. But it’s when it becomes something quite destructive that you need to question whether it’s good for you or not.

The egos of some people they post something provoking and then the more fuel is added to that fire the bigger their egotistical minds get. Sad people really.

Then on the other hand there’s the ones who don’t give themselves down time from facebook, they comment on everything, like everything and post quite erraticly, that’s facebook addiction.

TWITTER

I always look at Twitter as the Fomo app (fear of missing out). You can be on there for absolute hours and not have gained anything but hours of just scrolling through tweet after tweet.

Using it for the greater good is always the way forward. It’s one of my favourite social media platforms to use. Surround yourself with happy people on Twitter and you won’t be just scrolling you’ll be Sending out positive energy and making great friends.

It’s always a question i hear a lot and here’s the answer.

Those that don’t love you for who you are are not your people. Delete and move on.

Hope you’ll look at social media differently after this.

Let’s get festive

Now that it’s December I’m trying to get myself into a christmassy kind of mood.

I don’t frown on anyone who wants to start getting their festivities going soon after Halloween.

We are all different.

So i I found out some red nail varnish and glitter top coat. I rarely wear the colour only around December so it makes it a little more special.

The christmas songs have already been on the radio a good few weeks. So i couldn’t help singing along to them.

One of my favourites that really gets me in the mood and singing is this one by The Pogues

Once we get the decorations down from the loft i will definitely be more like The Elf and less like The Grinch.

Here’s also wishing we have a bit of snow because snow at Christmas time is just magical.

Diaries Vs Bullet Journals

I thought I would do something a little bit different and do a comparison kind of post.

It’s coming to the end of the year in just under 6 weeks. We can say Happy 2019 and good riddance to the year you’ve just had. Unless of course it was one of your best years of your life then cherish every moment.

Most of you reading this will no doubt have some way of recording your creative moments you do, whether it’s blogging, any clubs you belong to, or the things that bring you joy such as meeting with friends or family and doing exciting stuff.

In this day and age it’s generally a diary and bullet journal that people turn to and I wanted to talk about the things I think set them apart from each other.

DIARY

  • A diary comes in a few forms, one that’s already got the pages organised for you in 7 days (a week obviously). Some a page a day if you have a lot to write and jot notes or doodle on the side. Then finally there’s the one that has the times from morning til night if you are one that plans by the hour.
  • You can write how the days gone in a diary and flip back at a later date to remind you what happened on a certain day. I have a fair few of these in my loft.
  • They come in array of sizes and usually you can search online and type in whatever style or colour cover you want and it’s doable. Some pricier then others depending where you buy it from

BULLET JOURNAL

  • When you decide to bullet journal there are endless things you can put in there from a weekly spread where you have a key method of symbols to show whether it’s been completed, migrated or not done etc. You can make it your own key you don’t need to follow the way the inventor did, make it your own.
  • It’s more of a tracker compared to a diary, you can make pages decorative and for instance track what series you are watching and how far along you are. What books you’ve read, giving them stars for how good/bad they were. A habit tracker, your favourite quotes, literally anything your heart desires.
  • Usually you would get either a plain hardback book or one with dots in or if you are going to be doing more writing than drawing then a feint lined one would be great also. The one people swear by is the make Leuchttrum 1917 simply because it’s such excellent quality.

Personally I gave bullet journaling a go and it didn’t work for me I couldn’t get my creative juices going at the time so a diary it’s been for the last two years. It’s not to say I won’t ever do a bullet journal but it’s just not for me right now.

Which one would you pick for your creative needs?

Thanks for stopping by
