Hello!

I thought I haven’t done a post in a while for those who have yet to get to know me, new followers and those who are passing by. So hello, hallo, bonjour, ola, etc (to be honest that’s as far as my language skills go!).

My name is Cat, what’s yours?

  • anything highlighted is a link to a blog post of mine 💜

About me

Here are some facts about me:

  • I live in the UK
  • I started this blog post to overcome some emotional issues I was faced with
  • I try to see the positive in everything
  • I really try to not judge others from other people’s opinions (even wrote a post about it!)
  • I’m a bit of a night owl, so you’ll probably see me more prominent online late at night
  • I’ve just turned 30 this year (2019) and it’s all a bit new but we will see where the year takes me
  • For my job, I write online content and I’m quite strict with what I write, how I write and how words are perceived. On my blog, all of that goes out of the window
  • I don’t plan my posts, I don’t read through them, I simply write how I feel and post
  • I have a chill out zone on my blog, which focuses on mental health
  • I will never mention any of my friends names on here, as this is my safe haven
  • I have a few chronic illnesses and sometimes I like to blog about them
  • My blog is pretty random, it’s usually my thoughts but sometimes I do reviews
  • This lovely blog also once got featured on a clothing website and got quite a bit popular. Woke up one morning and I was like wtf has just happened to my views!!!
  • I also appear on a fashion site currently for my favourite hot water bottle. Sounds strange but trust me it’s a good thing lol
  • Finally, this blog is 5 years old. Have a read of my 5 year anniversary post.

Favourites

  • Film(s) – gosh there are quite a few, but if I had to choose it would be; The Grand Budapest Hotel, 7 Brides for 7 Brothers, Burlesque, Crazy Stupid Love and Chicago.
  • Music – I love, George Ezra, Sam Smith (did you know Jessie Ware liked this post!!), Jessie Ware (not even saying that because of the last comment), Blue will always be my first loves, Spice Girls, Jack Garrett and Adele
  • Tv – without a doubt my fave is Ru Paul’s Drag Race, then the amazing Taskmaster, I love a good crime and murder show, Sex and the city and Green Wing and Strictly come dancing
  • Colour – emerald
  • Number – 6
  • My loves – family, friends, music, film, makeup, stationery

Love you and them

As I said, I made this blog 5 years ago to help with some counselling and it’s grown since there. I’ve now got Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram accounts associated with my online world.

My favourite blog posts

I thought I’d rather a list of my fave posts I’ve done so far. They are in no order, and these are only a selection lol don’t expect you to read them all (although that would be nice – but a title may tickle your fancy):

As you can see there is a huge range of discussions going on, but if you can check out just one it would be appreciated.

Anyway, as I said I’m a night owl and it’s currently nearly 3am and I’m up at 7am. So talk to you soon and:

Welcome to the 30s club – what I got for my birthday

Happy New year!! How rude of me not to say happy New year, I hope that you either had a fun filled evening out dancing the night away, or like me you were slumped infront of the tv, drowning in pink gin!

The new year is always a bit weird for me, and I’m sure anyone born between mid December and mid January. You seem to have everything in the space of 2 weeks and it’s just a bit chaotic.

I was meant to be born on Christmas day, however I was slightly late (I was setting myself up for my traits later in life) and was born on the 5th Jan. The number 1 of the type was Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan with the classic “especially for you” – go on have a sing song. With this in mind, being 1989 the year I turned the beautiful age of 30.

A lot of my friends are already 30 and they do say it’s the best years of your life coming up, so I’m trying to see the positive side of it, instead of the impending doom of “you have literally not got your shit together”.

So the day arrives and I’m getting quite a few amazing messages from my friends and family. It’s so lovely to hear what people actually think of you, and they have taken the time to write out a message for you. Which is worth a lot in my eyes. The day itself, I wasn’t expecting much as my family we either do birthdays big or just small family affairs.

Celebrating my 20s – end of an chapter

Hey beauts, I hope that you had a fab Christmas and I hope that you’re still eating all of the cheese and chocolates, whilst drinking a lot of wine.

I’m currently sat writing this whilst watching Cinderella and looking at my phone every 2 minutes as my best friend is going go have a baby any minute!! I’m so excited.

As the year draws to a close, so does my 20s. This time next week i will be 30. Oh god I feel a little bit sick at the thought of it. So as I’m sat watching a Disney movie, I thought I’d reminisce over this last decade, share my favourite memories and lessons I’ve learnt.

Here we go:

Know who you are and own it.

Hey lovelies, I hope that you are well.

So I completely failed at the 31 day challenge, I know suck but hey tough tits. I think I got into roughly a couple of days in and thought to myself “nah this isn’t for me!”.

I thought I’d try something different to what I do, I thought I’d try something that is similar to other people’s posts. But in the end, I love to just writing from my heart and not planning anything. I am totally not the blogger to plan again, I don’t really plan my day let alone this thing.

Day 4 – it’s ok to cry sometimes you know


We are all human, sometimes we need to take a step back and just think to yourself YOU CAN DO THIS!!!

We are not all born to be strong, but I tell you what the little strength we have together is a force to not be messed with! No one is alone in this world, no one should be alone in this world. We all have different emotions daily and not one person will experience the same day or the same emotions, but we can share our stories. It may be that no one has felt what you’re going through, but someone is there to land a hand…

So what I am trying to say is, if you want to cry – bloody cry!!!!!! It is not shameful to cry, it is not embarrassing to cry (just don’t do it everyday). Continue reading “Day 4 – it’s ok to cry sometimes you know”
