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

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”

The other week, gosh I am slow I know, I got lovingly tagged in a tweet by the fabulous Holly for this brilliant positive ‘Sunshine Blogger Award’, to celebrate positivity and happiness in a world where there is so much negativity.

I highly recommend you taking a look at Holly’s blog, she’s new to the blogging game so please go and give her a follow. Her blog is great, full of witty comments, useful advice and of course positivity.
