What i plan to do with my blog

I been doing some thinking….and no this is not mine but i so would wear one just for times when i needed to collect some important thoughts.

s-l225

I want my blog to have a variety of things as of late its all been a bit of a personal experience overload. So here’s the conclusion i have come to…..


  • Along the top of my blog you will see Categories and if you hover over them you will see some of my posts i have written. Here you will find posts i feel will be of interest and will hopefully help someone. Well i hope that with all my posts but its just something different i guess.

So each post i write will fit into one of these categories:

PERSONAL – BEAUTY/REVIEWS – POSITIVE THINKING – HEALTH – QUOTES –

WORDS OF WISDOM – MONTHLY FAVOURITES


  • I want to include tracks and playlists here is one song that always gets me singing and slightly out of tune. Good old Ed.

ED SHEERAN – GALWAY GIRL

download


  • When my throat is ok i want to add voice messages to my blogs but at the mo it hurts to speak. All part of my illness i am learning to live with but i will try to record on the good days.

  • When i started blogging it was because i wanted a hobby. Now i really look forward to writing and creating content. Not sponsored by anyone and don’t get free stuff sent to me. I have thought about it and come to the conclusion that it would take the fun out of it.

What you read and the things that you see are all things bought by me and my own words.

stay true

Much love and here’s to a fantastic week…

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 …

My Morning Routine

Everybody has a routine when it comes to getting up and going to bed and this is one of my typical mornings and i thought i’d share it with you.

Generally i get up at 8 in the morning if i don’t beat my alarm. I always think its fun to have something to greet you when the alarm goes off. Here are a few of my examples

18362022_10155380414344479_1068238670_o

I can’t help myself i have a quick nosey on social media, sometimes for longer than needed. Before you know it 45 mins have been wasted.

18406165_10155380413669479_1635544343_o

Once i’m out of bed its downstairs to fuel my body and this is my usual breakfast

18297209_10155380414309479_763424114_o

I can’t go a day without listening to music so on goes Spotify and out comes the hairbrush and me singing slightly out of tune

18425690_10155380415074479_961451411_n

If i remember i bring my journal down and write away whatever comes into my head whether its important or just me rambling. i allow myself 15 mins for that.

18362617_10155380413789479_449707861_o

So i don’t forget i head upstairs to clean my teeth for the recommended 2 mins.

18362682_10155380415144479_1004741977_o

I take a soak in the bath or a quick shower depending on what time i have.

18426322_10155380478289479_197212423_o

Then cleanse, tone and moisturise my face ready to then clog it up again

18379613_10155380414084479_428549319_o

On goes the face that makes me confident but doesn’t define me as a person

18379061_10155380414024479_1217280185_o

When i have done all the important things i can then start brainstorming and doing a spot of blogging. Online shopping sometimes takes place too.

18378973_10155380413939479_1454054030_o

Occasionally a bit of yoga is incorporated into my morning routine if i am stressed out about anything.

18378698_10155380414194479_1098290244_o

Then its lunchtime….My favourite time of day 🙂

See you tomorrow for day two of daily blogging

much loves

The Week Ahead

This week I am taking bed rest as I am not feeling 100% however my fingers and brain are still working so I thought I would do a weeks worth of blog posts.

Some may be short. Some may be long. Some may be rambly and some may include a song.  (Can you tell I like trying a bit of poetry?)

So I’ll see you tomorrow with whatever comes off the top of my head.

Until then.. Ciao for now 😘

What makes me tick √

Lets delve a little bit deeper so you can get to know me a little better.

Being happy in life is one thing we all strive to achieve daily.

Heres a few things that bring a smile to my face and that can turn my frown upside down.

A playlist on Spotify

This one i am loving at the moment, i made it myself and it’s got some new songs and old on there. A song is quite a powerful thing, get the right lyrics and you got a happy listener.

Perfect Eye Candy 

These four men are just mmm.

  • My love for Colin Firth when i first seen him in Bridget Jones over a decade ago. He can be my Mr Darcy any day.
  • I managed to bag myself a VIP ticket 2 years ago to meet Paul Hollywood and got talk with him, real down to earth and very easy on the eye.don’t know how i managed to not stutter or faint.
  • When i was 10 i went to watch Phillip Scofield in Joseph and the amazing technicolor dreamcoat. Little did i know he would become the fine silver fox that he is today. Being 3 rows back watching him perform in a loin cloth would have been more appreciated my age now.
  • Lastly Adrian Grenier caught my eye years ago when he was the curly-haired lad in Entourage then in The Devil Wears Prada. I don’t know there’s just something about him.

mmmmmmm

A Poem with meaning

Being a lover of writing you can always find happiness in words.

This is one i have recently stumbled across, its written  by a talented poet Erin Hanson. There is plenty of her work on Pinterest.

A Hug

Ever since i was a little girl i have been a hugger. I don’t go overboard with one but sometimes its just what you need. No matter who it’s from it doesn’t necessarily have to be the loving kind just at the right time.

hug

There you go, now you know me a bit better than the start of reading this.
