Everyone needs a happy place, right? Whether it’s home, a holiday destination, your friend’s/nan’s/mum’s place, a park, a beach or – in my case – a castle, everybody needs one. It gives us sanctuary when we need it, somewhere to just be and a while to gather ourselves and thoughts together…at least that’s what Hever does for […]
It struck me just the other day, that it's been a whole ten years since I was 16. I remember it being an age of a hundred different emotions and a hundred different questions; I wasn't necessarily the happiest teenager anyway, but throw in the overcharged emotions, the over-active brain, the drama that only school can bring, … Continue reading A Letter to My 16 Year Old Sister
Now is it just me, or does it feel like we've been waiting for Spring forever? Winter just feels like a drag after a while, and I for one get fed up of having to bundle up in a coat that makes me look like a sausage roll. However, Spring is finally here and I couldn't be more chuffed; … Continue reading Hello, Spring!
First up, apologies if you've commented on my previous post(s) and I've not yet gotten back to you - I'm an appalling texter so it would have been a miracle if I was a great commenter-backer (it's a thing) - I was away last weekend, and I haven't been very well this week, so bear with … Continue reading Birthday Burgers & Spring Blooms
'Girls Compete, Women Empower' I came across this quote just a week or so ago & it really resonated with me. Not just because I'm all about trying to build my fellow woman up, but also because it's sometimes all too obvious that there are so many of us putting ourselves or each other down. … Continue reading Let’s Hear it For Women!
As I'm writing this, I'm listening to 'S Club Party' by S Club 7 - it seems only right as I just spent the weekend with my BFF who is absolutely my partner in crime when it comes to banging out the cheesiest throwback tunes, from Blue to Vengaboys to Steps - we've sang, we've bopped, … Continue reading Girly Weekend & Doughnuts Galore!
Hello my little love bugs! So! I reached 200 followers on here this week. That's 200 of you that read the babbling that I publish! Thank you. With that in mind, I felt like it'd be a nice time to share a few facts about me - I realised that although I've spoken quite a bit about … Continue reading 25 Facts About Me
If you've seen/read Alice in Wonderland (all time faveee) you might grasp what I'm doing there with the 'un-valentines' bit?! I want to ask you to celebrate love on a day that isn't Valentine's day. Now I know a lot of people really do love Val's; the chance to be romantic, to plan treats or make … Continue reading A Very Happy Un-Valentine’s Day!
Body shaming. To me, it's bizarre. Whether it's body shaming ourselves and being forever critical of how we look; or the media constantly cooking up images of the 'perfect body' and shoving weight loss tips in our faces, or slogans that offer 'immediate' results for your 'imperfections', or someone just being plain old mean. Well, I'm sorry, whoever … Continue reading Stop Body Shaming (& all hail Lady Gaga!)
So I thought I'd do something a little different today, and here we have it! Inspired by the lovely Morgan, I thought I'd have a crack at, possibly the most exciting Tag I've ever seen/done. There are actually quite a few Harry Potter tags floating around on the web and so I've done a bit of … Continue reading The Harry Potter Tag!
