It’s not what you look like

I thought I’d write a poem today which will most likely make a feature in my book once I put it together…

Let me know what you think

๐ŸŒธ

It’s not what you look like, it makes you stand out I know, but does it show just who you are deep down, I think no.

Don’t be superficial and just go on looks alone, the person who you are seeking should like you for you, if not tell them to go.

Standing in front of the mirror, does it show how you feel, your happiness inside you spinning on an imaginary wheel?

Don’t worry about the outside it is not to be approved, because once you have undressed it.. all has been removed,

So worry about the inside of you before you decorate the out.

Tell the vanity inside of you to hurry up, get out.

September Faves

It’s the 9th month of favourites… I can’t believe how fast the year has gone. Blink and it’ll be Christmas ๐Ÿ˜

So let’s start with a this duvet set that was my favourite before it even arrived. I fell in love with it online and thought yes you’ll make me very happy… Its so snuggly and warm I feel like hibernating in it every night.


I am a sucker for nail varnishes that last and look good so theseย  two by Barry M look just like gel but are infact Molten Metal shades ๐Ÿ’…๐Ÿผ

The pink one is so me and the purple one is a perfect autumnal colour.

A bit of pampering has taken place through the month of September and this weekend I had a spa stay with my Mum and Sister in law to be Kerry it was nice to chill out and it all started with this delicious cream tea.


I have always loved poetry, I will have to look out the book I made age 7 or 8…it was hilarious. However I am inspired by this wonderful poet to write and publish my own poetry book
Maya Angelou… and this is one of her fab books.
A must read.

So there are a few of my favourite things…

What are some of yours?

Christmas is coming – Everyone is going mad

This Christmas poem i wrote 4 years ago and just found it…

Christmas is coming

Everybody’s going mad

Spending hours shopping to see what bargins there are to be had

Stuff it I can’t afford it I’ll put it on the plastic card,

Knowing that in the new year problems with money will come and hit them hard

It’s great to see on Christmas Day

Your family smile and cheer

That all that effort just for one day

Is well and truly here

The food is on the table,

Each plate is piled up high,

Lunch has cost a fortune

You can’t help but lie

The day is finally over,

Now all you want to do is cry

Instead you reach for the mulled wine

and a good old mince pie.

New year arrives,

Your credit card bill comes in the post

You nearly can’t bring yourself to open it,

The thing you really have been dreading the most

Money is very tight,

The repayments are today

You pay the bare minimum,

The electric bill is in sight.

Thinking you don’t know if you can afford to have a little light.

Taking you back to that shopping trip

Where you went completely mad

Here’s some advice so take it

If you don’t you’ll wish you had

Your family and friends will love you

Whether you spent money on them or not

Don’t try and keep up with the Jones’

Just be there at Christmas and remember to smile a lot.

Hope you all get the jist of the poem

and pray that if you are reading this

It doesn’t describe you

Chase your dreams

you are sat there and a Eureka moment happens, or you wake up and have the most wonderful idea running through your mind at a thousand miles an hour.

Quick, grab a pen and paper and get it down on there before it vanishes into thin air.

Put down as much detail as you can about your dream and plan on making it a reality. You know dreams don’t come true if you don’t put in a little effort. If only it was that easy

I am working towards one of my dreams right now. I am writing my second book. I already wrote one about my bullying at school/ a few years after. This time it’s going to be a poetry book as I absolutely love words with meaning. It’s going to be relatable to almost everyone hopefully. I am in the planning process so will keep you updated as I work towards achieving my dream.

Don’t let them pass you by. Your dream was given to you for a reason.

Of course, if they were bad dreams please don’t chase those, let them bugger off into nothingness. Only the good ones deserve your time.

In Gabrielle’s words….dreams can come true

Thanks for stopping by

Til next time…

Welcome to the weekend

Welcome to the weekend

Enjoy it while it’s here.

Don’t get too drunk and silly,

Trust me you won’t remember it

this time next year.

Try and make some memories

and hold them very close,

Make sure you spend it

with the people you love most.

Weekends only come

every 6th and 7th day,

So use them very well.

For when they have gone and its Monday,

It’s welcome back to hell.

Hey guys, It thought I would start off the weekend with a poem and to say I am starting to put together poetry to publish in a book. So I thought I’d get warmed up and write this just for you.

If you have a dream you wish to come true, keep working on it and trust me it will be worth it all in the end.

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.
