Life is a bit of a struggle sometimes isnt it? We all put so much expectations on ourselves, we all strive to the best whether in personal life or work life, we all pit each other against each other, no matter how much you say you don’t. How and why did we become all so stressed?
If you remember the little things in life:
- I am alive
- I am breathing
- I have love around me
- I have a roof over my head
- I have the love of family around me
- I have the love of friends around me
- I have food (even if they’re scraps) in the kitchen
- I have got out of bed today
Anything else is extra, anything else is an award that someone else may not have been given that day.
Just remember next time you are feeling a bit down, you’ve got loads to look forward to. You may be having a bit of a shit day, but it really isnt a shit life, its 24 hours out of thousands upon thousands of ours in your life.
- Laugh as much and as loud as you want
- Wear what you want
- Look like what you want to look
- Love who you love
- Eat all the chocolate you feel like (it’s going to go off otherwise!!)
- Learn to relax (even check out my chill out zone https://loveyouandthem.com/chill/)
I am getting to the stage in life where either most of my friends are engaged, married, going to have babies, are parents or going through relationship breakups because they haven’t lasted since the start of their 20’s. I am in my late 20s now, and it is a bit of a strange age, for me personally I still feel like im 21 and it still feels as though I left Uni last year and not nearly 10 years ago. It made me realise what the hell have I learnt really, and what I could have said to myself all those years ago. Continue reading “10 things I learnt about growing up “
Imagine if we could go back in time and tell our younger self some tips and tricks that you have learnt along the way. 10 years ago I was 17, I was just finishing my GCSEs and starting my AS levels and thinking what A Levels I wanted to do, whether I was still going to stay at my school and what would happen with my friendship with my “best friends” that I have known since aged 11, on top of that dealing with issues of being a 17 year old girl.

So the last few weeks have been pretty busy, hence why I haven’t really been blogging.
I love summer. I love the longer nights, the beautiful sunsets (see above), the fact that people are happier and the fashion (not that I have a lot). I therefore thought I would take you on a journey as to what I’ve been doing… come on in. Continue reading “My summer so far.”
First of all, happy fathers day to all Dads, Step Dads, Foster Dads and Grandads. You are all stars in my eyes and if any child looks up to you as a hero you are their world.

Happy 2016 *still a stretch to the number 6* to you all and I hope that you are all cosied up in front of the telly, regretting how much food and alcohol you have consumed over the past few weeks. I hate to say it, but…… it’s Sunday and it’s the Sunday before the first full week back from the hols; in the words of Detox:
This now means that its that time of the year, when we start to look back on 2015 and to worry about what this year will bring. It only seems like a few weeks ago that it was January 2015, but time is flying by which is scary.

So I havent actually posted in 1 month, literally one month. I have posts ready, but I have not had the time. The past month has been a bit of whirlwind, work has been a bit meh, no one feels safe or happy, we all just pull each other through and make each other happy. I then had 2 weeks off mid July and 2 days before this, we had received a call saying my Nan had been taken into hospital. We live 2.5 hours away and it was just a shock. I wanted to enjoy my 2 weeks, no stress, loads of pj days and I knew I had a few concerts and nights in and out with my girls. But things took a turn for the worse.

So due to lack of internet because my phone went into “hospital” and then parents decided to change internet providers so the internet is awful at the moment I feel like I have gone back to the late 90’s, I have not been able to blog at all.
Feeling very bad, I did try and upload photos but just wasn’t working.
I have taken some photographs on my new phone – Samsung s5 🙂 I hope you like them

Weekends I absolutely love because I don’t like the week haha and this weekend is 3 days and it is just absolute perfection and I am enjoying every minute. I have seen my girlfriends, I have drunk a lot of alcohol and I have been looking after numero uno! Sometimes you need that!! I have taken some photos of the weekend, nothing amazing but you never know you may like them haha!
Continue reading “Favourite Finds this weekend.”
For this particular post, I won’t start with the usual two photos at the start of a post as this post is really photograph based. I live in Kent and I live 5 minutes down the road from ‘The Loveliest Castle in the World”. This Castle is full of history and it helps that my Mum works there as well, so its a great place to escape and forget all of my troubles! It’s absolutely beautiful, it has many great events and as it is like I said only 5 minutes down the road its brilliant. I therefore thought I would show you some of the photos I took (without the family photos). The Castle itself is NOT just the Castle, its the grounds, the huge maze, the children play area, the animals, the history, the food and activity/event days.
Enjoy, if you ever wish to go here — have a look — have a great time if you do. Click on the photos to enlarge 🙂
