08053266f93f9b6a579aba208df983f5

Oh my goodness really is it really here? I want the weekend to be here already I hear you say. I bloody hate Monday. Well, guess what…..

For years and years the word Monday sends peoples blood pressures shooting up, as they dread the start of the week ahead. The weekends gone and its ages until it comes back around again.

Heres some humour to get you out the Monday blues…

I’m picturing Rod Stewart right now but he looks pretty hot with his crazy hair so not every mullet is hideous.

 I guess that we can look at it as not every Monday is the same and some you will shudder at and others you will grow to like.

You needn’t be in a slump for the entire day, starting a week on a bad feeling is just asking for a shit week ahead.

Put a smile on your face, a big pair of positive pants on and make a list of goals you want to smash for the next 7 days and stroll into the week with your head held high.

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.

Oh great, its bloody raining as i end this post…Never mind roll on July. Only a few days away.

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

19141407_10155493449809479_1064708151_n

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.

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.

18818172_10155454899579479_1431018356_o

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.

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.
