Question Time: Yes i have…No i haven’t

questions

ITS QUESTION TIME

I asked what kind of post you would like to see and a personal one was in favour so i came up with this one which you can get to know me a little better.

HAVE YOU EVER?

SKIPPED A CLASS: I tried not to make it a habit but sometimes i couldn’t help it and ended up going home at lunch and didn’t go back for the rest of the day (bullies didn’t help)

DONE DRUGS: Do i look that silly? Not something that’s ever appealed to me

SELF HARMED: I have had some low moments in my life as i have suffered with depression on and off  but its only ever been a slight thought never acted upon it.

SHOP LIFTED: I have only done it twice. Once when i was at my local sweet shop i put some sweets in my pocket when the shop keeper wasn’t looking, she must have had eyes in the back of her head cos i had to give them back. Second was a freebie on the front of the mag. Wasn’t allowed the magazine so i put the freebie in mums handbag. She gave me a bollocking when she found it.

WHATS YOUR FAVOURITE….

SHOW: I have two they are both oldies…The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air and the Golden Girls. Thanks to Amazon prime/Netflix for my Will Smith fix and Mum for buying me the Golden Girls box set.

FILM: Without a doubt it has to be Bridget Jones. The first one obviously. I have a few others that come very close that i’ll do in a later blog post. Bridget is so relatable,  quotable, funny and has some lovely eye candy too.

SONG: Everything i do (i do it for you) by Bryan Adams. I have loved it since i heard it on a jukebox when i was 6 years old. Now i am old enough to understand lyrics it has so much more meaning to it.

BOOK: The Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S Lewis. I thought of how magical it was the first time i read it that there could be a whole different world in the back of the wardrobe i soon found out there wasn’t.

WHATS YOUR OPINION ON….

GAY RIGHTS: Love has no labels so those who discriminate are the ones in the wrong. I applaud the LGBT community for standing up to the haters and not changing for nobody.

SECOND CHANCES: I believe everybody deserves a second chance but that’s it. No third, fourth or fifth. If you do you may as well have mug tattooed on your forehead.

SEX ON A FIRST DATE: If i was to have sex on the first date (which i don’t) it would certainly not turn into anything more serious than a one time thing. Love isn’t built on sleeping with someone when you only met them a few hours before.

DO YOU…

HAVE A STRONG ACCENT: Although i live in the countryside i don’t think i sound as broad as some of the people so i have that to be thankful for.

HAVE ANY SCARS: I have a massive scar from where i had my bladder operation. The actual Bladder stoma itself is tiny but where they opened me up is quite sizable but luckily my knickers hide it.

BELIEVE IN LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT: I really do believe that you could fall in love with someone just by looking at them but when you get to know them as a person is when you really know if its true love or just infatuation.

I hope you enjoyed getting to know me a little better.

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 …

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.

Feeling Hot Hot Hot

Today we can say we have some summer sun even though it’s not technically summer until the 21st June.

If you live in England you will probably agree with me it’s bloody hot. Normally we toy with the idea of wrapping ourselves up in blankets or briefly putting the heating on but the weather man is being good to us.


I somehow got the pale gene so I have to be a tad bit careful when exposing myself to that glorious sun. If only I could go starkers  in my secluded back garden.

Beach days are something to look forward to and my little niece is growing up fast so sandcastles and a baby splash in the sea is definitely worth taking my camera and maybe there will be some talent too. Shouldn’t take pics of them just observe.


I will definitely be doing some more summer posts just thought I’d write a quick one today.

Look after yourself in the sun, keep protected and please don’t look like a lobster it’s not an attractive look and you’ll hurt like a bitch 😁

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.

Weekend vibes


Friday – The day that you know that you just need to get to 5pm and you can wave bye bye to your worries til Monday

Plans are made for the weekend whether it’s fun filled or a nice relaxing one. The saying goes live for the weekend.

It’s crazy to think they are only a word but mean so much.

As I’ve got older I just see where the mood takes me of a weekend. Back in the day it was clubbing and drinking and being hungover…those days have long gone.

The good thing about the weekend if you don’t have to work is switching your alarm off and sleeping in til noon if you fancy.

Then when it gets to the end of the weekend don’t look at Monday as being full of dread until the weekend keep this quote in mind.

These are a few of my Favourite things – March

A lovely random few things that I thought deserved a place in my March faves post.

Lets start off with something that has been my favourite tipple ever since I was 18 so a very long time. Its Dooleys Toffee Vodka. Looks like Baileys but tastes like a dream. Actually I have never tasted Baileys or a dream so I can’t compare…Either way its delicious.

A bit of Eye Candy

What is Phillip Schofield doing here I guess you are wondering. Well my best mate knows he is my man crush and favourite silver fox so she told me his Snapchat name and hes had me in absolute tears. Pretty much like he is on This Morning just unfiltered.  Anyone else who fancies a giggle or a silver fox fix its:- phillipschofe. If you don’t have snapchat just type his name into youtube you’ll be happy for hours.

You always need a few beauty favourites and these are mine.

So first of all we have my everyday lippy which is Loreal Color Riche in the shade Rose Printemps. Its a subtle pink not too in your face but more pink than a nude.

Then we have my Holy Grail from The Body Shop – Tea Tree Anti Imperfection Daily Solution. Whenever I have a annoying spot I reach for this and apply it and watch it do its magic.

Last of these three is the Primark Foundation Brush. I used to just put it on with my fingers and occasionally a sponge but these brushes that come in all different sizes make your foundation go on smooth and flawless. This one is the biggest and was £4. An absolute Bargain.New Phototastic Collage

Read all about it

The first book is a very sought after poetry book that I’ve seen many people rave about so I bought one for myself and I’m not disappointed.

The second book is my very own book that I have just had published telling the story of how I was bullied through school and how I have got through the other side. If you would like to read it the link is here

Both of these can be found on Amazon
