12 Quotes To Get You Through The Rough Times 

Blake Lively- Glamour Mag
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.

Things That Make Me Feel Thankful 

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 img_2098tears 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 »

6 shows that I’m currrently watching on Netflix

IMG_3216Everyone 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!

Also here’s a #tbt picture of baby Jaffa chilling with Made In Chelsea! Read More »

20 Things To Do Before I Turn 25

The whole growing up malarky seems to be hitting me rather hard recently with a lot of my friends settling down and buying houses and being ‘proper’ grown ups. As well seeing lots of engagement and birth announcements from people I went to high school with on facebook!

It has made me realise that its not going to be long before I will be thinking about that kinda stuff (that is if some lovely man eventually comes along and can deal with all this craziness!).

So… I made a list of a few, well 20, things I would love to do before I turn 25.Read More »

Friday Favourites (4)

Sorry for the lack of Faves last week, I just didn’t think there would be enough new amazingness to fill an entire post!
However this week has been UNBELIEVABLY wonderful! I’ve had a really wonderful summer and yeah it has been pretty relaxed, but that is what I needed! I needed some time with my weird yet wonderful family and some time to myself to recharge and get my ‘Lala-ness’ back. This week has just made all of that so much better and I’m not entirely sure if it was a couple of particular things or a mixture of everything, along side just feeling brilliant but its been great.. just great!

So here are my 5 fan-bloody-tastic things that have happened to me this week!

Me-time!

As I mentioned this last week has been brilliant for the good old ‘Me-Time’ and for relaxing, this being chilling in bed in my PJ’s because its been raining non-stop for the last 48 hours even though it’s the middle of August!.. So what is summer again? Or going out for walks either on my own or with the dog just wondering, exploring and thinking.

It has been a great way to get myself in a good mindset ready for the start of university again, and to rethink things that were previously bothering me about life in general and see them with a new frame of mind, and realise how mediocre they are and how I have been pondering over things that aren’t so important as I first believed.

With university and work staring back up again, I want to be in a really good state to get stuck in and get on the right track straight from the beginning of the year. Unlike last year, where because of a stressful summer I then used my first few weeks as a relaxing period and kinda never got into that ‘good’ frame of mind. But oh well! At least I’m learning from my mistakes!

But anyway, love me some Me-Time, because I love me obvs!

Roadtrip!

This last week my lovely house-mates have been having the time of their lives in Budapest at a 7 day music festival called ‘Sziget’, I unfortunately was unable to join them due to lack of money and other commitments. So after enduring a week of complete and utter jealously, through never-ending Instagram photos, Snapchats and messages from them all, I have decided that next year I am (hopefully) going to join them! I have researched and researched and decided that if I can save enough I would like to do a mini trip around Europe ending with the festival next August. This would be wonderful and as that it is my 21st next year I’m hoping (and praying!) that my parents will help me out with it.

It shouldn’t cost too much as I’m not planning on a massive trip, maybe 2 or 3 stops before Budapest. Thinking, Vienna, Prague and possibly either Germany or Croatia? Not sure Yet! Fly to the first stop them trains between each and fly back to the UK after Sziget. Will see how the planning goes as its obviously still in the early stages and I need to see if my friends are happy to come along too obvs.

Anywhere you guys would suggest in Europe that has easy access to Budapest/ Hungary?

Abundance of love!

You guys are wonderful! I don’t know why but for some reason in the last couple of days I’ve been receiving a lot more than usual views,likes and comments on my posts! I’ve been feeling so loved over the last few days and it is so lovely to know that someone actually reads my posts. I would still post even if I had no views at all, but still the fact that people actually appreciated and enjoy the random drivel that comes out of my head is a pretty wonderful feeling!

Oh and hey to all you wonderful new followers! Thanks for joining me on this pandemoniacal journey, be prepared not a lot makes sense over here, but I’m certainly having a jolly good time!

Mumma!

This last week, especially the last few days, I have been able to spend a lot of time with my mum without the little
munchkins driving her up the walls every 10 minutes. We have had 2 days without the kiddies to chill and sort the house out before we go on holiday next week, and we have been able to have a few movie nights which has been utterly lovely. Its nice to spend some time with her without her being stressed or pre-occupied.

The last few months have been hard for our whole family but especially her, and its nice to be be able to sit and watch a film with her and pretend like its all okay and everything is finally falling together.

Yes I know I’m 20 and no longer live at home, but everyone needs to spend quality time with their Mum, to me that is what coming home is. Coming home is seeing my little sisters and how much they have changed, staying with my grandad, and spending time with my mum and remind myself that no matter what happens, or how terrible it may seem, she is always there whether I want her to be or not.

Giveaway Winner!

So not sure if you noticed with all the posts and all but I won a giveaway (check it out here!)!!! YAY!! So a few weeks ago2 giveaway 1 I entered a giveaway on a lovely blog written by Ryane (check it out here!) and amazingly I some how won! and I am so excited to receive my little bag of goodies and try out all the little products and review them all and let you all know my thoughts. Its pretty exciting because this is the first time I’ve won a giveaway and it is also coming from ‘across the pond’ in the magical USA meaning the products are ones I wouldn’t usually come across on my normal trips here in the UK.

So yeah I won a giveaway and I’m so so so excited!

Well as you can see I’ve had a pretty good week! and I’m feeling super great about life and all that stuff, hopefully next week can be as briliant!

From Monday I will be on holiday with the crazy famalan so pre-warning about a lack of posts!
