Monday’s don’t have to suck

We somehow dread Monday like it’s the plague or something, when in fact it is just another day.

I guess it’s because most people have weekday hours and the weekend is their fun time so when it’s over it’s back to the grindstone.

In reality, if you choose to love your Monday as just another day and not like a chore you hate then it will go just as good as any other day.

I like that Monday’s are a start of a new week so you can wipe last weeks slate clean and start a fresh with new goals to smash.

Fierce Female Friday

For a month on a Friday I am going to be featuring some awesome women on a little series called fierce female Friday…

I thought I’d start off with me..

1. What makes you feel powerful?

Being able to have my own mind, create my own happiness, and wear what the hell I like. Being unique/one of a kind.

2. What 3 strong women do you look up to?

My mum of course, she takes everything in her stride. She has to put up with me too ha ha.

Stacey Solomon, she has worked so very hard to get to where she is today. She’s an inspiration. If you don’t follow her Instagram you really should.

My hospital nurse Rachel, who’s been through all my surgeries with me and helped me in between. She works so hard and is passionate about her job. She’s one in a million.

3. What advice would you give to someone needing to find their inner fierceness?

Stand up and be counted, never let anyone quieten you. Don’t let anything keep you down for too long. Life is for being the best version of you so go out there and kick some ass….not literally 🙈

Please look out for next week’s fierce female.

Lots of love, have an awesome weekend xxx

Leopard Print Obsession

It’s been a fair few years that I’ve been obsessed with leopard print and I somehow have just added a little handbag, trainers and some boots to it too. So I thought I’d share a few pics I found on my phone and then some pics I took of items I have to hand.Whether it’s spring, summer, autumn or winter. I’ve got my footwear covered.Over the years I’ve of course took a selfie or two and these feature a bit of leops.Then of course you can’t not accessorise without adding it to the mix. These are my bags and make up pouches.


I don’t think personally it will ever go out of fashion. My mum said it was around in her days and that’s years ago 😂

Do you love or loathe it… I guess it’s not to everyone’s taste

My Blogger Essentials

img_20190905_175627_5922195517143107056890.jpg


As a blogger there are always the essentials you need other than WiFi 🙈

So first of all I get my whiteboard out, think about which category I want to touch on, and then I mind map and see what I can come up with.

I have my notepad handy for list-making, researching and just taking note of things I want to go into a blog post. Of course there are doodles when my mind just goes blank but it’s always good to have a notepad handy.

My laptop of course is when I have my Blogger head on and don’t just want to do it from my phone. It’s always good to see what the bigger picture looks like if you get me.

My diary is where I can schedule in my blog posts and also keep an eye on how many I’ve done. I tend to not write too much in advance unless I know I won’t be able to write for a while.

The cute pen just makes me feel productive. Plus how could I walk past a fluffy pen…It gave me 90s vibes.

Boots haul 😍

I love a little chemist /drugstore splurge. Didn’t buy too much this time.

So here’s what fell into the basket 😂


I wanted a mascara that’s not too dramatic like my milani one but enough to look like I’ve made an effort and this is what I chose soap and glory thick and fast


I am nearly at the end of my Mac fluidline gel liner and I wanted to see if I could save the pennies and find something that does the same job so this Carter Beauty gel liner is on trial to see if he’s got the position.


We all love a concealer that covers a multitude of sons and this one is one I always go back to after trying others. It’s collection lasting perfection and it is just what it says in its name… Perfection


This wasn’t the shade I was expecting as online it looked lighter but this Collection lipstick is an absolute beaut of a colour for the autumn winter months. I can be a bit daring.


For years I have used olay in one way or another and this is something that I am just renewing that I think helps my dry skin. Daily facials and double action day cream. I recommend it if your combo like me.


Then if you spent over £20 you got this gift for free. I have 3 of the lipsticks to give away to whoever wants them as they are brown and not my colour. But the other goodies will come in handy.

There you have it my little boots haul.

What’s your favourite thing to get in boots?

Nyxie from Nyxies Nook

I’m a mental health blogger who focuses on eating disorder recovery, depression, anxiety and general wellness of the self. The blog was started in March 2019 in a bid to raise awareness for mental illness such as Anorexia Nervosa and Anxiety, two such disorders I suffer from. However, what started out as a hobby, quickly turned into something much, much more!

Nyxie’s Nook has become a place to talk about all mental health issues and the struggles that come along with recovery. I cover a variety of subjects ranging from general wellness right up to more specific recovery-related content. I not only aim to cater to those in recovery but to people in all walks of life.
