I’m still here, don’t worry…

hi all.

Sorry I’ve been so quiet on here lately. It’s not that I’ve had nothing to say, quite the opposite. I just havent had the oomph to do it.

I know that this blog post is incredibly similar to my last post but I’m getting there. I thought I’d give you a quick bullet point list of what’s been going on:

  • Mum came out of hospital after nearly being paralysed
  • My nan doesnt want to live anymore and has terminal cancer (huge thank you to all of those who tweeted me help groups)
  • My gorgeous best friends little ones are growing up and I’m loving spending time with them
  • Finally went out on a night out in over 1 year. Never felt so old.
  • Found out whatever bite me in the leg in November last year has scarred my leg.
  • Declined the opportunity to go for a job interview for a higher job role
  • Having a lot of self confidence issues and really not feeling it.
  • Trying online dating again but the above bullet point is really affecting it.
  • Making happy memories with those who I love
  • I’m really trying to learn German again and I’ve learnt that I don’t like to speak it but read and writing is fine!! Yay.

The bullet points above I know are slightly negative, but I’m getting there.

So heres a positive picture for me to focus on:

Cat – you felt amazing here and you look good.

Hope everyone is ok đź’‹

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.

Dumplin: my review

Hey lovely people I hope that you are well.

The other day my lovely friend Jen recommended that I watched the new movie on Netflix, Dumplin. I had seen the trailer when it was first released and I honestly thought that was the movie for me. I’m a sucker for uplifting movies with bigger girls in, for example – hairspray. I then saw in the trailer bloody drag queens. Now if you’ve been following me for some time you will know that I bloody love Ru Paul’s Drag Race, so I couldn’t wait to see it.

Day 1 – are you happy?

Here we go, day 1 of my 31 day challenge.

The first question I believe is one of the most important questions in life. It’s something that we cannot avoid, but we often lie when answering. No one is truly happy are they? If so I would like to meet them.

Someone will always find something negative to say about themselves probably every day, Either it’s:

  • Their weight
  • Their job
  • Their relationship status
  • How much money they have

There is always something. Continue reading “Day 1 – are you happy?”

National Lipstick Day

wordswag_15328562338573931412531826236212.png

I love a bit of lippy, I mean who doesn’t!! It makes you feel super confident, gives you that extra bit of glam and often makes you stand out from the crowd.

Lipstick over the past few years I feel has evolved more than anything else. We have such a wide range now to choose from that everyone has their favourite type, whether it’s your standard shine, matte, or liquid lipstick, glitter, bright colour, dark colours – there is one for every occasion and every person.

I have written about lipstick a lot on my blog, so I thought I would compile a list of my fave posts (some being more popular that others, ssh it offends the lesser known). Continue reading “National Lipstick Day”
