Sometimes I wake up and feel like I have nothing to give, I have literally no motivation to do anything but lay in bed in my cosy little duvet bubble and not deal with the world for a few hours. Sometimes there is a reason behind this, such as a bad or hectic few days or sometimes it just happens for no reason. I wake up and BAM! Life is just like here’s a giant dose grotchiness!
Recently this has been happening a lot, and over the years I’ve found that these breakdowns and bad days are super helpful in making me stronger in the long run. But in that moment, when it’s all gloomy, is when I feel at my weakest and sometimes nothing seems to help.
As much as I love my duvet bubble and snoozing all day, sometimes it just isn’t possible. I can’t take a day off to sleep or have lots of cat cuddles and wait it out, I just have to get my shit together push through it, like the big grown-up girl I am.
One thing I have found that on those days when I have to be a grown-up, having a little inspiration from others really helps. My best friends have a tendency to spam me texts/photos with vom-worthy, inspirational quotes, so here is just a little dose of everything-is-going-to-be-fine to keep you going and help you to be the sassy grown-up you are even when you feel like it’s all falling apart.
This week with Thanksgiving coming up and us brits recently celebrating remembrance day, there has been many reasons to be grateful and to think about who, what and why we are thankful, for both the big and small.
I’m talking about those big moments such as a big life event or little such as when you’re doing something very mundane, like sat talking with friends or watching TV and you get an overwhelming wave of happiness. Over the last few months I’ve had lots of these, such as my university graduation where I’ve been sat talking about everyday things with friends and just burst into tears because of how happy and thankful I am to be surrounded by such amazing people and opportunities.
However sometimes these things can go unnoticed in everyday life, but every now and then it’s good to just sit and notice these little things, (and even have a little cry, if you want to look a bit odd like me), that make every day so wonderful, and be thankful. Read More »
So with the return of the chilly weather and its temperature change, this brings a change in my beauty must-haves. My skin is fairly dry a lot of the time no matter the weather anyway, but in the colder seasons my face has a tendency to turn super dry and very cornflake like, which is as pleasant as it seems!
So here’s a round up of my favourite beauty products this autumn, both old and new, that help my skin to stay nice and hydrated..Read More »
As that I’m in the theme of updates, I figured it is probably about time I updated you all on my Slimming World/ Fitness Journey.
As I mentioned in this post I kinda took an unplanned year long break from blogging.. but thankfully I didn’t take a year off from exercise or SW! So as you may have guessed, a lot had changed including my plan and mindset but first I should probably let you all know about my progress so far and my new updated goals and why it’s all kinda changed!
Everyone loves a good Netflix session, whether it’s watching a show in the background while pottering around the house or settling down with lots of snacks for a binge! Especially now with days getting darker and colder, it’s growing even more tempting to settle down with a blanket and and dig into Netflix. Plus with Netflix providing such a wide range of shows, documentaries and films you’re pretty much guaranteed to find something to keep you entertained. So with all that choice I thought I’d share what I’ve been watching over the last few months!
