Blogtober Day 19: Netflix Shows I’m Obsessed with.

IMG_3551

We’ve all heard of Netflix and chill but what happens when we just forget about the chill?

You got it… one of the best binge fests you will ever be part off! I have recently found my love of box sets again, in fact I may or may not have watched these shows 47 times and could quote them in my sleep. Sorry, not sorry.

*I have tried my hardest not to give away any spoilers*

Gavin and Stacey.

Honestly, if you don’t know about this programme I officially think your from Mars. I LOVE the friendship dynamic and yes sometimes it may or may not just go a little bit to far (if you have watched you will know what I mean).  There is just something wonderful about the family that they have created and the relationships built between them

Gavin and Stacey is just a show that gives you a warm feeling in your tummy when you watch it. Isn’t that the best kind of feeling?

Once Upon a Time.

Okay, confession time. I am obsessed with Once, I have loved it since I was at university. The idea of watching fairy tales come to life may just be a little bit daft but trust me when I say its magical. The cast, the stories and just the overall feel of the show really makes for a great watch. And, if you’re looking for a deeper meaning, its a great story in knowing ‘you have the ability to create your own story’.

Miranda

I think my feelings for Miranda are definitely on par with my feelings for Bridget Jones. I feel like every story line could happen to me, except I’m short. If you love anything, that relates to poor dating choices, noisy mothers and some very questionable friends- then PLEASE go watch this!

Luke Cage

I love anything Marvel related. When Luke Cage popped up on Netflix I was so hesitant to watch it. What if it wasn’t as good as Jessica Jones (which is totally boss even though it isn’t on this list)? And I am kicking myself! The programme is a little dark and gloomy in places but it is definitely worth a watch- I would describe more but I really don’t want to give anything away.

Rick and Morty.

I have to admit I am only a few episodes in, but I get the hype. The show is questionable, but will make you laugh until your sides hurt. I can honestly say I am looking forward to continuing to watch Rick and Morty.

SO there you have it, a few shows I am obsessed with and I have to tell you there will be more coming your way! If you have any recommendations, let me know in the comments!

Blogtober Day 18: ‘ I wish you had more faith in yourself’

What’s up, chucks.

Guess, who’s back to talking about something that makes her uncomfortable.

A few days ago one of my lovely blogging babes, left a comment saying she wished I have more faith in myself. Now, this is a statement I hear often, from both friends and family. I don’t know why this particular comment resonated with me, but I just can’t stop thinking about it.

When I look around small bloggers, I see a lot of self doubt. Twitter polls asking questions, constant put downs both to ourselves and others, but where does it end? Isn’t it time we had more faith in ourselves? Isn’t it time I had more faith in myself?

With this being said, how do you gain more faith in yourself? Well babes its time, and challenges. Everyone has something that we think we just can’t do. Challenges that even up until the completion, we think we just won’t be able to complete, BUT we do. And we boss it.

So when you need faith in yourself, look back at all your past accomplishments, especially those you would have to fight for.

REMEMBER ,LOVES, WE’VE GOT THIS!

Blogtober Day 17: Blogging Babes That Inspire Me.

IMG_3430
Chloe and I at the Bloggers blog awards,

Okay Huns, we need to talk.

I often lack motivation, inspiration and sometimes just sense to blog. I am constantly in awe of the bloggers I see daily, who just seem to be bossing it. Scheduling amazing content and posting utterly epic flat lays, is no mean feet. The women below are the blogs I reach for when I feel a little insignificant in the world of blogging.

Six feet of Sarah.

Okay I am massively biased but you need to check out this blog. After nagging her repeatedly to start blogging- cause she’s amazing, Slytherin has finally gone and done it. I am lucky enough to have her at the end of the phone but I am even more grateful for her to be part of my life (vom).

I’m just a girl.

Chloe is such an amazing example of how the blogging community can change your life. This amazing young woman has grown in confidence, not only in her self but the quality of her work. She has fast become my go to person to ask a million questions about, well, basically anything. When I’m a little lost (which is most of the time) she never fails to remind me of my passion for blogging. If you want amazing reviews, loved up snippets and a fair few pictures of her gorgeous little cat then you need to check this girl out.

Lydia Elise Millen.

Honestly, it was finding Lydia’s channel that opened my eyes up to YouTube. I was amazed that the anxious little mess I was back then found some one to aspire too.  After following her social media platforms for over a year,Lydia has shown that change is perfectly okay. Changing your life style through ways that suit you and not others is something that we should applaud. Some days will be plain sailing and the others well, there just going to be fucking shit. And loves that’s okay too.

Obviously, Lydia is known for her classic style and healthy lifestyle but if you watch her vlogs from well over a year ago, you can see that’s she should basically be the poster child for the phrase, ‘positivity, breads light’.

Hannah Gale

A blogging friend(Chloe) of mine suggested I read Hannah’s blog because I’d ‘love it’ and she wasn’t bloody wrong. I love reading through her archive because their are so many aspects to her 25 year old life which are so relevant to me. Her page basically makes me feel less of a fuck up and more of an adult.

P.S Its not just her archive that’s amazing, her new posts are pretty amazing too!

Vix Meldrew.

Vix’s blog is still new to me but I have fallen head over heels for her realistic, heart warming and just relevant (to my life, at least) post’s. Bad dates, relationships and anxiety all washed down with a few gins is pretty much how I look at her blog- and my life for that matter. And I can’t wait to read more.

Of course I have a fair few more blogs which inspire me when I just can’t muster up any form of inspiration, BUT these incredible women keep me going when I need to give myself a kick up the arse. So thank you, you utter bosses!

Do you have any blogging inspiration? Let me know who yours are in the comments below.

Blogtober Day 16: Self Care Night in.

FullSizeRender (20)Hey loves,

I have had such a naff day. Nothing particularly happened but it feels like my stress levels have been put through the wringer. I just can’t seem to get myself together, theirs been tears, road rage and a shit tonne of anxiety. So tonight, I’ve decided to turn off my phone, snuggle up and have a little bit of self care and I thought I would share it with you.

Eat something reasonably healthy for dinner.

Having something reasonably healthy to eat may not be what you want but it is what you need. Load your plate up with a load of veg to ensure you don’t have any guilt the following morning. Let’s face it you don’t need to add to a shit mood with food guilt.

Have bubble bath

Bubble baths are little gifts from heaven. Loading your bath full of bubbles whacking on a vlog or grabbing a good book just gives yourself a bit of time to stop. Sometimes we just need 20 minutes to breathe. And honey if you want to cry, you’re in water any way!

No make up, messy bun and Pyjama’s

Throwing on your comfy clothes, taking of your make up and chucking your hair up in a bun is an armour we all share when we just feel grim. When life gets too much, grab your comfy armour and fight away your demons.

Change your bedding.

Okay, this should be the only stressful part of your night. And I am going to be honest, changing my bedding actually makes me feel ill. But fresh bed sheets, shaved legs and clean pyjama’s. OH COME TO MAMA!

Early to bed.

The earlier you go to bed, the quicker your day ends. Even if you just lie in your fresh sheets, binge watching Rick and Morty and drink copious amounts of tea- snuggling in bed is a must.

Let me know what your go to self care tips are in the comments!

 

 

Blogtober Day 15: Hello Pumpkin!

IMG_3525IMG_3524

I’ve had such a lovely day I thought I’d quickly write a little post and let you know about my amazing autumnal day! In a previous blog shared with you some exciting things I’ve had coming up and today was the start! PUMPKIN PICKING!

A few weeks ago Slytherin and I decided we should go pumpkin picking at a local farm. After driving 20 minutes we were at East Field farm, with a wheel barrow in toe trying to find our orange babes. Once we went on the short walk to the patch we dumped the barrow and walked aimlessly around trying to find some pumpkins to take home. Seriously how do you pick a pumpkin? Green ones? Orange ones? Big ones? Small ones? It’s a bloody PUMPKIN. After about 20 minutes of wandering around, trying to figure out the good, the bad and the damn right mouldy pumpkins (and getting a few pics too- obvs) we found these beauties.

IMG_3527

Once paid for, we jumped in my little car and drove home and yes, there was a lot of signing to Craig David! I have no shame!

Bad taste in music aside, we made a quick pit stop in ASDA to by some carving tools, we ventured back home. Once we got home and grabbed a coffee, we started trying to figure out how we actually carve a pumpkin-standard. When we got into the motion of scooping out the insides, carving faces and to be honest trying to figure out why at the age of 24 we decided to be Autumnal AF.

As soon as I had finished my slightly mucky looking ghoul, I waited for Slytherin to complete her master piece- which was a sweet little Harry Potter by the way. We may be 24 but pumpkin picking, carving and just having a little bit of fun, made the both of us so happy! And I’m still smiling writing this post!

I hope you like this little diary post! Let me know in the comments what your Autumnal to do list is this year!

One very happy blogger

Blogtober Day 14: Am I a ‘Bad Blogger’?

Untitled Design (16)

Compared to the girls in many, I’m a bit old, a bit off and basically just a bit too swear-y. My content is relevant to what I am going through now and not to the newest eye shadow palate. I am not overly technical and have only just learned what VSCO is. My views are poor but are ever so slowly lifting.

Thoughts such as this have made me question why I blog and what was the point in even continuing? The hours I put into my little word press blog could be put into furthering my education, or earning more money for an around the world trip- which I don’t really want to go on. And sometimes I can’t bloody get my head around why I continue to do something that I doubt so much.

And then I realize, that I might be just that little bit shit at blogging, BUT I love it. I love seeing my blog grow, I love the little developments I know are happening and you don’t. Expressing myself on a platform that is mine and mine alone is something I cherish and love to my very core.

If we are going to be honest, I struggle with everything in life; like many. Insecurities, trolls or just off handed comments we can’t seem to shake. Our Blogosphere is filled with negativity, some have preconceived misconceptions of what blogging is or should be. To them I’m a ‘Bad Blogger’, but to me I’m just a girl who likes to write about nonsense. And write about nonsense I do.

Blogtober day 13: Plans, Plans, Plans!

IMG_3500[1]Hello my little loves.

Many of you already know I’ve been a bit down and out for the most part of 2017. To be frank, I’ve been through a lot of shit and lost my way a little. Although, as of right now I’m feeling a good as I possibly can about my future. There are still something’s that I want/need to work, that I will keep a little private for now but I will be sure to tell you when I can.

So, believe it or  not I had a plan for this post(prior to my tangent), I wanted to share with you my plans for the last few months of the year. Being  a true Christmas baby, November and December are my favourite months of the year, so I tend to try and cram in as much as physically possible and let me tell you- I am so bloody excited for what’s to  come.

Pamper time.

I have a lovely little afternoon of pampering with my friend in the next few weeks. She’s been a complete rock over the past few months(years) and I just wanted to treat her to something she wouldn’t treat herself too. I promise I will be doing a full review on the day and so please, keep your eye out for that.

Bonfire night.

Bonfire night is my favourite night of the year, the fire works, baileys hot chocolate and wrapping up warm is perfect. I love it. Every year my mum and I go to the local fire work display and stand in awe at the beautiful fire crackers.

And, let’s face it there is no better smell than the morning after bonfire night. Ah, bliss.

A weekend away.

I’m having a little trip away to celebrate turning another year older. I am so excited to be spending my birthday weekend t with the two most important women in my life. Going back to York to snuggle next to the fire in Thors, drink copious amounts of prosecco and gorge ourselves at Bills. I can’t wait.

All things blogging.

Okay, my loves. I have decided to take part in Blogmas this year. I am such a winter baby and I love anything festive (this is also the reason I haven’t added Christmas on to this list).  And I can’t bloody wait! Ekk!

As I said I do have other things in the works so please bare with me! What’s your plans for the rest of the year? Let me know in the comments!
