My not so perfect life – Sophie Kinsella, book review

Hello you beautiful people, I hope that you’re okay!

So this is a first for me… a book review!! For anyone who knows me, they know that I am not a book worm. I would never choose to buy a book and I’m not one to sit in a corner reading, it’s just not me. I honestly cannot remember the last time I read a whole book, maybe GCSEs – I mean that was near 13 years ago!

But I thought fuck it! I had a lot of travelling to do over the last few months and I thought let’s buy a book. When buying a book, I really do judge a book by its cover. I know you shouldn’t but I thought to myself when I saw this book “this looks like the book for me”.

Don’t forget to say I love you, everyday.Β 

We are so busy nowadays, with the pressures of work, having the best fashion, looks, the best body and the perfect relationships that we forget about those people who love us no matter what.

No matter where you have gone in your life, where you’re going and what you want to do, your grandparents are there to support you.Β  They’re there to teach you, to guide you and of course love you unconditionally.

But what we often forget, we forget that as much as we are growing up, they are growing older by the day. Continue reading “Don’t forget to say I love you, everyday.Β “

Why do I fear being in a relationship?

So, this is a post that I have been putting off writing for years, and I literally mean years. I’m hoping that by writing it, it will clear away so many thoughts in my head, or even just some weight off my shoulders.

I suck at relationships/ people liking me.

There I said it. I’m so bored of it. I thought I would write down all of the thoughts in my head… here we go: Continue reading “Why do I fear being in a relationship?”

Its one day out of many. Be happy.

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 zoneΒ https://loveyouandthem.com/chill/)

10 things I learnt about growing upΒ 

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 isΒ 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 upΒ “

Having a few down days.

Ever have those days where you just feel like shit? Where you just don’t want to talk to anyone? Where you would rather stay in bed and just hide away?

That’s definitely how I have been feeling lately.

I don’t know where it’s come from, but I just feel so blah. It’s totally not like me.

I know I have been having a lot of shitty times with my health lately, I’ve dealt with obstacles I don’t normally deal with, but I just don’t have the energy to speak to even my best friends. That REALLY isn’t me.

I feel in pain due to my illness, fed up because of it, angered as well with frustration. Not feeling self confident at all, disliking my look at the moment and just want to change.

I understand that there are worse people out there, those who feel sad every day, but I’m just so tired. Also got a banging headache and tinnitus at the moment which just is….amazing.

My blog is often positove, so I’m sorry guys. 

Anyway keep sharing the love.

Have I ran out of love for blogging?

Hello you lovely people, it’s me, yes me, the one that hardly blogs lately.

I realised the other day that I haven’t blogged in nearly 1 month now, weird to think considering I spent nearly 2 months blogging daily.

But it’s not that I have don’t have the passion to blog anymore it’s that I’ve got so many ideas, thoughts and feelings, I honestly don’t know where to start.

As usual, let’s break this down – here we go: Continue reading “Have I ran out of love for blogging?”
