When life gets a little sh**ty..

When I started this blog I made a promise to myself that I would always be honest in everything I post (even if it makes me cringe all over). Therefore with all the good in my life that I show, I would also show the rubbish bits. Looking back over the past couple of days now, it doesn’t seem so bad and I can focus on all the lovely things that happened (went for dinner with Lois/date night with my boyfriend/saw my little baby cousin & got a big sloppy kiss off him) *womb backflipping.. until he projectile vomited everywhere*

But the rest of it was a just a bit rubbish. Nothing major happened, it’s just y’know when you’re already stressed and then a load of little things happen which make you want to strop on the floor and ugly cry. I won’t go into detail all the little things that pissed me off because, well they’re boring really and just things I’d laugh off had I been in a different mindset, but one of the things was little spat I had with Tom which turned into a full blown shouty/door slamming argument (all done by me and over nothing might I add). As well as that I’d lost my purse and my car was in the garage so I felt a tiny bit like a helpless, angry, crybaby.

HOWEVER.. like I said, looking back now it wasn’t all bad. Tom and I made up in no time, and found my purse in time for my night out with Lois & now have a fully functioning car!

What I’ve learned recently is: it is absolutely ok to have a bit of a meltdown sometimes…especially if you can sit back and reflect after it. It’s all about perspective and how I decide to handle things…and I definitely need to work on how I handle things..

(I mean, I definitely could have not called Tom a dick which would have sorted the issue much quicker, oops!)

But my point is, over the past couple of days I was focusing on all the negatives (no purse, no car etc) when I could have easily just focused on all the good that was going on at the time. After all they were first world problems to have in the first place. So next time (& trust me, there will be a next time) a rubbish couple of days come my way, I’ll hopefully treat them differently and look at the positive.

One thing I know *for sure* about myself is that when something “stressy” happens to me, I need time to myself to adjust, whether that’s 2 minutes to gather my thoughts or a whole day of watching Friends on Netflix & eating chocolate ice cream. But that’s ok, and it’s something I will always make sure to do for myself so I can process things and let them go.

Anyway since having those shitty days (and since writing this) a few maaajorly good things have happened! So one thing I need to remember is: yeah, things might not go my way at times, but that’s absolutely fine, because other times things WILL! So not so much ‘happy days’ but ‘balanced days’!

If you’re having a bit of a stressy time, I hope this helps … the only way is up baby! ha!


Our weekend in Whinfell

“A weekend well spent brings a week of content” …if this is true then my week should be bloody brilliant! It’s Monday morning and I’m sat in bed with a coffee listening to Radio 2 (I’m old before my time, get over it)

Happy Valentie’s/Galentine’s Day everyone!!

I reminded Tom a few weeks ago that Valentine’s day was today and he turned to me and said; hang on, I know I’ve booked something for that day. There’s me thinking; the romantic guy he is, had booked something amazing for us.. he came back into the room with his diary, turned to me and said: yep… that’s when the gas man is coming and I’ve got a dentist appointment as well (!!!)

Hello FAB-ruary!

So we finally made it to the second month of 2018! January seemed to go on for bloody ages! …that being said, I think I was one of the only people that really enjoyed January. I started off the year hangover in Paris with my boyfriend after celebrating NYE there, so I didn’t really hit the ground running with 2018. However, I feel like it was perfect for me having a few days to chill out without any ‘New Year, New Me’ pressure, because as soon as the holiday over, I switched to kick-ass mode and felt fully motivated to set (and stick to) my January goals.

Well hi & welcome to my first post! I thought I would use this as a good opportunity to 1 –  try and get used to this new website… and 2 – (and primarily) to introduce myself a little. I’m a spectacularly normal girl in her 20’s who’s decided to write random sh*t (it’ll be good sh*t, I promise) on the internet! I’m going to write about all things lifestyle. The good…and the bad bits in life because believe me, we all get them! But just as a little insight into me: I love delving into the worlds of beauty and fashion, I am utterly obsessed with my pet bunny rabbit, so no doubt he’ll be making an appearance or two. I have recently moved in with the other half and I’m loooving the whole interior design aspect of that. Oh, and I’m pretty sure I have a shopping addiction, so at least I can justify that by posting a haul (…or four thousand!) I love to travel and will do my utmost to get away as often as I can… but lastly I love to write, and I miss it, which is mostly why I’ve decided to start this blog!

I hope a few of you at least will stick around to see what I’ll be up to in the near future. Happy 2018!
