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”.

Day 13 blog challenge: a band or musician who has positively impacted your life

wordswag_1483027419542

Firstly I want to wish you all a beautiful Christmas, ย I hope that you have already recovered from all of the food and drink. I know today especially i am so tired!!

I had a little Christmas blog break, one because I had too many family memorable moments to forget about my blog and two….. just been a bit tipsy lol. But back to the blog!

I like this day, as I have pretty ,ichor done this post before so I can either do a huge copy or paste lol or just provide you the link. My love for this artist has never changed, ย I still get emotional listening to their songs. Weirdly a song of theirs just came on as I’m writing this.

I love their positivity, their detail of emotion throughouttheir lyrics and the escapism of it all. I was really going through a rough patch know my “love life” and their album was played on repeat, sang loudly in the car and quite often cried to it

Please kept in mind that I wrote this post in 2014, not only has my writing style changed but this was when said artist was becoming big haha.

Enjoy —– the musician that has positively impacted my life.

My blogging pet peeves.

I’ve been blogging for a few good years now and I’ve seen some wonderful changes to this little community of blogosphere. I’ve seen the wonderful introduction of the use of more social media platforms, the more vlogging channels and the friendships that have been built. It‘s wonderful! It truly is. But there are definitely somethings that really annoying me, so I thought I would run through them and see if they annoy you too!!ย

2 weeks of pure happiness – Friendship, Wireless, Brighton & more

IMG_20140630_231534 (1)Morning, afternoon and good evening – hello. God I have not done a blog post in 2 weeks, I am such a bad blogger (or am I, who made up the rules hey!?). Anyway, I have had a jammed packed 2 weeks in which I really have not had the time to relax after work to do this, as I have been pretty much cream crackered. So what have I been up to I hear you yell (I wish!), work nights out, catching up FINALLY with all my favourite girls (so freaked out right now, playing on my ipod is Girls just wanna have fun!, as I am writing about my girls) haha, Wireless Festival, Brighton days out and other activities.

Ps – the quote above is for anyone who is feeling absolute rubbish, my bff sent me it when she found out that my counsellor believes I am now suffering from low self esteem, depression and anxiety (life is brilliant!! ๐Ÿ™‚ ย )

Let’s go on an adventure, if you don’t want to – check out my other blog posts.

My little blog & to my readers.

7967fe297b19d2b9b51419a7c8a2c706I originally set this blog up in December thinking that I would use it to air my opinions that I cannot say to others, to rant, to rave and just to have a good old natter with myself really haha!!

I never thought I would see the day when it was featured on a UK clothing brand facebook site, in which it was visited by over 300 people in one day. I remember that day clearly because my internet was not working on my phone and I had to wait until the end of my shift to find out as to what the hell was going on!! I still to this day can’t quite believe that.

I try to stay as anonymous as possible, because I still do not want many people that I know to find out about this blog. It is like my secret getaway. My twitter if you do follow me, is an extra twitter. I have my own personal one, and I have noticed over the past few months I have been using my loveyouandthem account more than my personal haha! I just find it amazing how people with the same loves, likes, dislikes can get on so well, its like we may all never meet but its like a pen pal situation – people are always there if you need them.

Anyway the point behind this post is that I have just seen how my little blog of mine is about to hit 10,000 views…. 10,000 views with nearly 200 followers on here and near 400 on bloglovin. I just think, why are people reading my rubbish lol! If I put a smile on someones face then that is seriously that all that matters to me.

We all started off somewhere

๐Ÿ™‚

Keep smiling and remember:

I’m phoneless!

large (5)

So over the weekend I woke up to find that my beautiful Samsung S3 had stopped working. It was completely not wanting to play at all and I just felt like I had lost my partner in crime. I have had this phone for 22 months (I say this because im 2 months from the end of my contract) – I have dropped it from heights onto hard tiled floors, its been dropped like I said so many times I cannot even tell you how many times and it has never ever broken on me. I therefore thought f*ck it, I’ll go to carphone warehouse were I was greeted by someone who didn’t really want to work there and thank god it was still under warranty. I had to say goodbye to my phone as it wouldn’t come back the same….. it’s been 2 days and my life is different – it’s really quite sad (not emotional sad!)

So therefore I will not be blogging a lot in the next few weeks because I have no real access to internet or to photos.
