Losing Positivity / Motivation!

(From Pinterest)

Not feeling positive or lost your motivation?

Anyone else feeling like this? I got you girl! I’ve been feeling so down recently, about everything that’s going on, and feeling like a failure through my instagram and blogging!

I made a previous post about how getting dressed and sometimes doing your hair and makeup can make a massive difference as well, and I feel that today! I put makeup on Saturday, as well as straightening my hair and putting my favourite jewellery on, and it honestly made a massive difference to my mood!

I’ve luckily got an amazing boyfriend, and family and friends, who I’m truly grateful for, who have helped me a lot! I honestly don’t know what I would have done throughout his whole time without any of them! I miss my boyfriend through not being able to see him everyday, yet through FaceTiming , and now we get to have a social distance walk, everything is a little better!

(From our holiday last year)

I’m also trying to keep occupied, by learning welsh, which you may have seen on my story the other day, and by reading a book – currently the first Harry Potter book which I started at the beginning of lockdown, but I’ve also got this lovely Disney book which my mum bought me a few years ago because I’m a huge Disney fan, hence the top from Zara as well!

I’m also going to try and keep on top of my blogging, I’ve got my self-hosting planned for tomorrow, under a new name! And I’ve got a few photo’s batched for my instagram this week, making use of the makeup I put on the other day!

(From Pinterest)

Makeup is not an everyday thing for me, but once a week is good, makes me feel a bit more human, and I really wanted to make myself look good, not only for myself but my boyfriend as well, after not seeing him for so long! And as for my hair, most days, I shove it up on the top of my head, or I’ll plait it straight after I wash it, and wear it in a plait for a day, or curly. But sometimes I like to just straighten it, so it’s different, and not always the same, it also makes me feel more girly and glam!

I also really want to find a new tan, I’ve always used Bondi Sands, I made a previous post about my tanning routine, but I a,ways find that it goes really crackly and doesn’t last that long at all! I want to find a new tan, as doing my tan always helps me feel a bit better about myself too! A little bit of tan helps wonders!

Engagement Story

(From Pinterest)

Hi everyone,

I know it’s been a while, but I’m back, after losing motivation, to something that will hopefully get my writing juices back flowing again!

I’M ENGAGED!

As lots of you know, I have been in a relationship with my now Fiancé (still feels weird saying it) now for just over 5 years (see my post about how this happened here.

I’m just going to delve right in, and tell you all about how this happened!

It all happened Halloween weekend, we had booked a weekend away together in Chester, one of our favourite places to go for a weekend away. We had booked the Double Tree Hotel, which is a place we have both wanted to stay in for a while, and I’m so glad that we stayed there, the hotel was stunning, and the room was absolutely gorgeous (I’m gutted I didn’t get any pictures of the actual room)

We had booked in the hotel restaurant for the first night, I had prawns for starter (a little bit spicy but tasty) and Rhys had the Halloumi, which I tried and that was very tasty too! We also shared a bottle of white wine (my favourite wine)

We then had mains, Rhys had a Steak, and I had Tortellini, which was bloody lovely, but I only managed to eat half, because the portion sizes were really big, which was good for the price! (I didn’t manage to get a picture of the mains, as we were trying to spend some time away from our phones, which was quite cute)

After the meal we had a bit more to drink, before we had to leave, due to the new time of closing at 10pm, so we took our drinks with us. This is when Rhys wanted to go “for a walk”. We put our drinks back up in the room, before going to explore the hotel some more.

We followed the path around the hotel grounds, before we seen a fountain, something that caught both of our eyes, and we went over to get a closer look.

The fountain

Right near the fountain, was something we call “The bandstand”, which we stood in for a second, and watched the fountain, seeing the different coloured lights change. We then stood there for a moment, whilst enjoying a hug, talking about our future, when he asked the question.

I was very upset at the time, as I could not believe it, I just didn’t expect it at all, it was definitely up there, the best moment of my life, to date! Of course I said yes, and literally put my hand in front of him, for him to put the ring on.

The bandstand

He couldn’t have done better, seriously, my favourite place, the setting, everything he said, and The Ring honestly, everything I wanted and more! It’s so beautiful! I’m so lucky! Still to this day, as soon as I wake up, I check it’s still on my finger to make sure I’m not dreaming, it sounds silly I know!

The ring

The next day, we explored Chester, something we usually do, and had a meal in Miller and Carter, which was okay, but the cocktails were good, which was definitely what I needed! And finally spending the last day on Sunday in our favourite place – Chester Zoo. Where better to celebrate?

Thank you Chester, you will forever be my favourite weekend away place to go too!

Something positive to come out of this horrible year, right?

I hope you’ve all been keeping well! Let me know in the comments, things that have made your year, I know there will have been some!

How I’ve been keeping positive!

Finding it hard to keep positive with everything that’s going on? Me too, we’ve all been there, and there are still days where post of us won’t feel positive, and that’s okay! It’s okay if you want to stay in bed some days and watch Disney Plus and Netflix okay. It’s okay if you don’t want to exercise, and you want to divulge yourself in chocolate and other yummies!

(From Pinterest)

I recently did an instagram post, talking about just some of the things I have been doing to try and remain positive. I think it is so important right now that we do try and keep our minds positive, as a happy mind will help keep this virus away, so the more things we can do to help aid this, the better really! (See post below)

I’m trying to think of how amazing it will be when I can finally see my boyfriend again, and see my friends that I haven’t seen in so long! It will be amazing, I love keeping in contact with them, and making sure that they’re okay! I also love having things to look forward too, so this is a big deal for me! There’s so many places I want to go and things I want to do when I can again, and I’m definitely going to make sure that I do these! Never missing an opportunity again!

(From Pinterest)

Another way I do this, is by getting up and getting dressed! This is so important, it may seem like staying in your pyjamas is a good idea, but I honestly feel like when I put some nice comfy clothes on, instead of lounging around in my pyjamas that I’m just so much more productive! I spoke about this in my recent post about loungewear

Make up is another good idea! I can’t do it everyday like, it don’t always have the motivation to do my make up everyday, but once in a while it’s so nice to put some make up on, it makes me feel so much more human. I also like to change my hairstyle up every once in a while, instead of just shoving my hair up in a scrunchie everyday! I still wear them, don’t get me wrong, I can’t have a single day without wearing one, but it’s nice to put my hair in a plait, or straighten it (only occasionally though, trying to use less heat on my hair)

(From Pinterest)

I feel like for me it is so important to try and remain positive because of how far I’ve come with my mental health, and I don’t want something that is not going to last forever to affect my mental health again! I’m making sure I’m not watching too much news, and making sure that the hour of exercise that we are allowed out for, that I indulge myself in the outdoors, just absorbing in the fresh air, and the natural surroundings – it really is so lovely!

(From Pinterest)

I read Fern Cotton’s book “Calm” during my low point of mental health, which helped a lot with this! And I’ve still kept the book, as it was a really good read! She also has a book called “Happy” which I’m quite intrigued about so I may also have to purchase that aswell! I think it will definitely help to keep me positive!

I also made a post about some other things I have been doing to keep myself occupied during the current situation, so if you’re struggling for ideas,or find yourself bored, why not give it a read to give yourself ideas!

Growing my confidence with blogging, through the Influencer Membership!

Confidence is always something I’ve struggled with, even from being small! I’ve never been overly confident, I’ve never been the girl with loads of friends, I’ve been the girl who always feels different and that she’s never fit in! Anyone else feel this way? It’s definitely something I’ve always wanted to work on, and well… I have been trying to work on this!

(From Pinterest)

For a while now, I’ve been following a girl called Ellie Blakeney who I’ve always been inspired by, I’ve loved her posts, her feed, and generally just seeing her day, and what she gets up to! I guess you’d say I was inspired by her, and I wanted to motivate myself to push myself more into my Instagram to become an influencer like her!

Luckily for me, the more I kept watching, she had some amazing news come out, and I knew it was something I was excited by! I needed in, and I was going to make sure I got in! In February, I got an email about The Influencer Membership, and I made sure on the day of launch, I was set up and ready to make sure I was one of the first 50 girls to be let into this membership! And boy did I know what I would get myself into!

Let’s go back to the start, when I said I never felt like I fit in, or was any good at making friends. Well, from joining the membership, it opened me up to so many amazing girls, who I’ve now made such good connections with and some strong friendships which I could never have imagined before! I knew I was going to benefit from the membership, but I didn’t know I was going to do this in so many ways…

Some of the lovely girls I have met, and such lovely words!

As well as making many amazing friends, my confidence has grown so much, and since joining, I’ve done a few Instagram lives, and I’m. Instantly using Instagram Stories to increase my engagement! My levels have sky rocketed, with one of my pictures (below) having over 6000 views, mostly from using hashtag’s, which is something Ellie (our social media coach) has taught me so much about! Honestly the amount of advice I’ve took from this girl is amazing!

I was also the second person to win the members award, which I’m immensely proud of, to be known and awarded for all my hard work, is so surreal, and honestly the amount of love and support I received was incredible, the girls are so supportive, I love it! Ellie does the member awards each month, to one lucky member, who has shown hard work, engaging with everyone, and through Instagram, and gives this member shoutouts through social media, a free 30 minute coaching call, and an amazon gift card, which is amazing and super kind! I don’t think it could of come at a better time!

Ellie has recently opened the doors to the membership for a second time, letting in another fifty members! These girls have now extended our family, and it’s going to be super exciting to see them progress! You honestly don’t know how lucky you are to be inside, until you’re actually inside!

We don’t know when the next launch will be, but when it opens again, I think you seriously need to get in, take it from me! So many valuable tips I’ve learnt, I couldn’t imagine it, as well as the influencer library online with free resources for the membership girls! It’s amazing! What are you waiting for?

Getting back into exercising during Lockdown!

(From Unsplash)

Lost motivation and need to get back into exercising whilst at home? I know exactly how you feel! I’ve found it so hard whilst at home to keep fit and healthy, with gyms being shut, and only being allowed 1 hour of exercise a day outside the house!

I’ve also found myself eating way too much of the wrong type of things – chocolate, crisps etc, in general just not healthy in any way shape or form! Also baking some really nice brownies / cookies which doesn’t help either! I think I need to invest in a lot of fruit, and make smoothies, I really used to enjoy them after a gym session! I also need to get back into the habit of eating fruit aswell!

(From Pinterest)

I recently bought some new gym wear from JD Sports, with discount, which I was quite excited about, I love new gym wear, and I knew this would help me get back into a workout routine! I had also just thrown my gym leggings away as they had become quite see-through! I seen Kady McDermott wear these, doing her workouts at home, and I really liked them, so I treated myself to it (using my winnings from Grand National Day – my boyfriend roped me into it, I hate it!)

Today I did my first exercises, it hurt like hell, and I’m not gonna lie, I almost cried, from not going to the gym for a good 7 months – due to my own closing, I could never find a gym that came close to how good it was! However, I’m determined that I’m going to keep exercise up, it made me feel so much better after it, and I want to get back into a routine of exercising again, as this was something that really helped with my mental health! I think at a time like this, it is important to keep ourselves busy, and I feel like exercising is a good way for me to do this, so I’m going to include this in my daily routine, especially in the morning!

(From Pinterest)

I think creating a routine is something I definitely need to do right now, and I think starting my day with exercising will really get me inspired for the rest of the day! It made me want to get on to blogging, and creating more posts on my blog and Instagram!

I could also incorporate some of my other activities I’ve been doing into this, to help keep myself busy! Lockdown Activities

Have you included exercise into your Daily Routine?

Relationship Advice during lockdown

I recently asked over on my Instagram about what people would like to see my blog about, and someone asked me to talk about Relationships. During the current circumstances I know it can be quite hard if, like myself, you are in a relationship, and not currently cohabiting with your partner. So I am going to talk about some of the ways in which I am keeping my relationship alive / keeping strong whilst in lockdown about my relationship!

Keeping Positive

(From Pinterest)

It’s so important to keep positive right now, positivity will help your mind in many wonders, and also help fight off the infection! There is so much to be thankful for within your relationship, and keeping positive about all of this is key. The love you have for each other is so important, and that love is binding, and this is something that will never be broken by this nasty virus, if you remain positive! Also look for the positives in what you have to look forward too! You may have an upcoming holiday, yes you may have to rearrange that, but when the time comes that you can go away, wouldn’t this be so nice to spend time with your loved one somewhere nice? Me and my boyfriend also have Help to buy ISA’s in place, which we have had for about a year now, and we’re hoping towards the end of this year / start of next year to have saved enough to hopefully move into our own home! Is this something you have been looking in to? Have you decided to set one up? This is something exciting to think about / look forward too!

Keeping in Contact

(From Pinterest)

It is so important to keep in contact with your loved one if you’re not able to see them. I usually text my boyfriend, or FaceTime him! This is also so nice, as it is a way of seeing him, without obviously getting to go and see him! This makes me happy, as because we’ve been in a relationship for nearly 5 years, we normally see each other like 3 times a week, so being able to FaceTime him everyday, is a way of keeping the happiness without thinking negative that obviously yeah it’s shit that I can’t see him, but right now, there’s physically nothing any of us can do, and we’re not the only people in this situation, my sister who I’m living with is in the exact same situation, as well as many other people I know, and also people I don’t know, so let that give you some clarity. However, try not to do this too much, because you still both need to be happy without each other, if that makes sense, don’t become reliant on each other! Remain positive that you are going to see each other in the near future, but keep occupied by engaging in other things, as if you constantly FaceTime each other, you will eventually get bored of each other! It’s important to keep the excitement in seeing each other’s face too!

Date Night Ideas

(From Pinterest)

This is something I haven’t yet tried but I really would like too! We’ve been toying over the idea of doing like a quiz over FaceTime with each other which sounds sort of fun! Might turn into an argument though, so we’ll see about that one haha! The other idea which I’ve heard of quite a lot, is a Netflix Party, which I’m skeptical about because we like totally different films / tv shows! However we did start watching a tv show together a couple of months back, so it would be cute if we could watch some more together, I guess that would be nice!

Are there any other ideas you had of what you have been doing at home, if you’re not with your partners? Share them below, let’s chat!

It’s my 25th birthday!

Hey everyone, I hope you are all well! Yesterday I celebrated my 25th birthday! Under the local circumstances, this meant that I had to stay home, and not see my boyfriend / any of my family / friends, which is quite upsetting! But with the use of FaceTime / messaging / phone calls, I still got to see / speak to a lot of them!

Flowers and card off my boyfriend – it’s the little things 💕

I know this doesn’t sound a lot, but it honestly helped so much, and I honestly had such a good day! I literally spent the whole day outside in the sun, and had some Buck’s Fizz with my sister! I’m so lucky to still live with her, she’s honestly my best friend! I also had my favourite takeaway – Pizza Hut for tea, which was so lovely!!

I mean don’t get me wrong, it’s not how I planned to have spent my birthday, and I would have probably been in work, as I hadn’t booked the day off. But I still had a lovely day, and it made me realise that there are actually so many people that love and care for me, and that literally means so much! Love really is important right now!

I also, for the first time, decided to do an instagram live! Which surprisingly went really well, I had 2 viewers, but for the first time of doing it, that was an achievement for me! and of course, shared an obligatory birthday picture (pictured above) because everyone needs a picture on their birthday right? And I created yet another TikTok! I’m loving TikTok right now, anyone else? It’s so funny and I could literally spend all day flicking through endless funny videos!

At the end of the night, I finished it by watching Jumanji, of course because it had the Rock in, and I needed a little pick me up! I just love him, anyone else with me? I also had a glass of my favourite – Malibu and Coke, my all time favourite drink!

My mum also baked a lovely chocolate cake which we all had a bit of, which was absolutely divine! I’m living off chocolate at the minute! I’m so looking forward to going to a gym after all of this, I have ordered some new gym gear, and as soon as that comes, I think I’ll have some more motivation to do some exercise, as I’m really lacking in motivation right now! Anyone else? I’m literally just sat watching Disney+ all day!

I literally had a jam packed day, and I didn’t even expect too, and it actually was rather nice! It just goes to show, that you can still have a good day even in circumstances like this! And I hope by me showing you what I did on my birthday, it will give you some clarity so you can decide what you would like to do for yours!

My Disney+ Watchlist!

Hey everyone, I’m not sure about everyone else, but I’m kind of addicted to Disney+ right now. I mean, come on, who wouldn’t be? Have you seen how much content is on there, and it’s not all Disney either, there’s The Simpsons, Marvel, and Star Wars too, so there’s definitely something for everyone on there, to suit the whole family!

I was lucky enough to get Disney+ as my boyfriend has bought it for me as an early birthday present! I’m a Disney lover, and I have so many Disney films already, but I just love this, and it’s so easy to use, and there is so much to choose from on there, I’m in heaven!

I’ve started watching Thats so Raven, as this is always something I wanted to watch as a child, but growing up, not having Disney Channel as a child, and I’m loving it so far! I think I’m also going to watch The Cheetah Girls aswell, following on from this, as I always wanted to watch that too!

I was out of the loop when everyone was talking about both of these! Don’t get me wrong, I was super grateful for my childhood, and there was so much to watch on CBBC and CITV – we’re looking at things like Tracy Beaker and Jungle run, and so much more – who remembers these programmes? My favourites as a child!

Here’s a list of some other things I would like to watch:

Lizzie McGuire

Something else I didn’t watch as a child, but I have seen the movie on Netflix! And I love Hilary Duff, she’s such a good actor, and I’ve watched her in other movies – A Cinderella Story, Cheaper by the Dozen! Looking forward to this!

Hannah Montana

I have seen quite a few episodes of this, as during this time, I was in high school, and my Auntie had sky, so when I went to my cousins, we used to just watch this, and High School Musical on repeat of course! I used to love this, and the movie, so I will get round to possibly watching some of the episodes I may not have seen?

Big Hero 6

Looking at the date of this film, I can’t believe it was 6 years ago, and I’m afraid to say, it’s still one that I haven’t seen yet! I think the thing is with me, I have my favourite Disney films, and I tend to just watch the same ones over and over, but now I get the chance to watch new ones that I’ve not seen before and I’ve heard great things about this film!

Wall-e

Yet another film I’ve not had the chance of watching yet, I think it’s maybe because I feel like there will be a sad ending to this one? I don’t know why, but at some point, I will get round to watching it, and I can tell you all how I feel about it properly then!

The good dinosaur

I actually remember this being advertised at the cinema, having billboards for it! It looks kinda cute this film, and I can’t wait to watch it! I love how it’s called the good dinosaur as well, it’s definitely a family orientated film!

Inside Out

Now I did try and watch this film a couple of months back, and after about 15/20 mins into the film, I genuinely thought I couldn’t get into it.. however, I’ve heard such great things about this film, and I really want to give it another try, hopefully it’s worth it!

What is on your Disney Watch list? Is it any of these? Or is it something completely different? Let me know in the comments below!

Outfits I’ve been wearing whilst at home!

Hi everyone, I’m back with another post! This one is all about the outfits that I’m wearing whilst I’m at home! If we’re at home all day, the last thing we want is to be uncomfortable, whether we are working or not. It is important therefore to have the right clothes/loungewear to do this! But it’s also important that we don’t sit around all day in our pyjamas, as this is going to make us feel uninspired / not having any enthusiasm about doing anything. 

I don’t know about anyone else, but jeans are a no go right now, maybe the odd day, to make sure I still fit in them, because after all, chocolate is so appealing right now – but it’s all about balancing that out, right? So I’ve got to make sure I still fit in them, for sure! Makeup is also a no go for me, want to make sure my skin is looking it’s best, maybe the odd day, do a natural look, but not every day!

Outfits I’m wearing!

The Couture Club Hoodie!

I bought this Hoodie in the sale, for I believe only £17.99, which is a bargain, and I think it’s still on sale now if you want to check it out?

https://www.thecoutureclub.com/products/essential-piped-oversized-sweater-washed-khaki
Pretty Little Thing Loungewear

This was only about £18 if I remember correctly, but it’s so comfortable, and not at all see-through, which I was worried about! Definitely need more loungewear after this!

https://www.prettylittlething.com/light-grey-rib-knitted-bardot-jumpsuit.html
Topshop Joggers and Miss Selfridge Bodysuit

I’m living in joggers at the minute, anyone else? This joggers are so unbelievably comfy aswell, and styling them with a tshirt or bodysuit really is the way to go! and I love this body suit from Miss Selfridge, so cute!

https://www.missselfridge.com/en/msuk/product/clothing-299047/bodysuits-5382194/black-spot-sleeveless-v-neck-bodysuit-9675605

https://www.topshop.com/en/tsuk/product/clothing-427/trousers-leggings-4075710/classic-grey-90s-oversized-joggers-9417554

 

I also really want a longline chunky/knitted cardigan, but the ones I seem to like have all gone out of stock, so I’m genuinely gutted! Signed myself up for stock notifications though, and as soon as they come in stock, I’m definitely getting one! 

What are your go to outfits whilst staying inside, or working from home? Drop them below in the comments!

I’m back! Lock in, not Lock Down

(Picture from Pinterest)

Hi everyone, it’s 2020, and I’m back with a post, probably not a post I wanted to write about, but I need to start somewhere, so here goes!

 

With light on everything that’s happening at the minute, (which I’m not going to go into, as we hear enough about it) I thought I’d write about some of the things I’ve been doing to help occupy myself, and try and stay positive, whilst staying home! As I know staying home, and not doing anything, can get a bit boring and repetitive, so just by doing some simple things each day, you can help break this cycle, and engage in something positive / new!

 

 

Blogging!

The first thing I’m doing is getting back into blogging, starting with blogging, back on here! I used to love blogging on here! It was a way to get everything out, and I just genuinely love writing so much! Also making more out of my Instagram! I’m trying to engage with as many bloggers as I can, and getting some inspiration for my blog posts and images on Instagram! I’m also promoting this over on my twitter and helping to promote other people’s blog posts over there aswell!

 

 

Disney Plus / Netflix

I’ve recently downloaded Disney Plus, well my boyfriend bought it for me as an early birthday present, and I must say I’m loving it! Watching old favourites – Thats so Raven, and Hannah Montana, as well as the full seasons of the simpsons, and all the Disney Films! I’m a proper full on Disney fan, so this is amazing for me! And as for Netflix, we all love a good Netflix Binge, on our off days, and just general Sundays, what are Sundays for? Lazing around – don’t get into a habit of doing this every day though! Try and switch this up a bit!

 

 

Colouring Books

So I’ve recently discovered my colouring book, I bought quite a while back to help with my mental health, I barely used this, so it’s come in quite handy now! I find colouring to be so therapeutic, and calming, and it keeps me occupied, and so helps bring my stress levels down so much, so I would definitely recommend this, if you don’t have any colouring books available – get some print offs off the internet! I used to love doing this as a child!

 

 

 

Baking

After seeing pictures and videos of everyone baking, I wanted to do some myself, and without wasting precious ingredients at this time, thought there would be no way for me to do this! I then remembered I had a jar of brownie mix that I had been given as a present off one of the children at work, and I was so thankful for this! Not knowing when I was actually going to use it – I now had a purpose for using it, and a lovely way to finish a lovely Sunday Dinner with a lovely dessert! I’ve not done baking in so long, and this was the perfect way to do this! (I wish I had taken more pictures in the process, but I guess these will do)

 

 

Home work outs

Healthcare Quality Methods | Fitness workout for women, Slim waist ...

 

I can’t say as I’ve started any work outs as of right now, feel like a failure saying that! However, as of today, that is all going to change! I’m going to start P.E with Joe – The Body Coach each day, even if it’s on replay, as let’s face it, if I’m off, I’m not getting up way early, Id rather have a lie in, who’s with me? I think having a routine will definitely help break up the day a bit, and it gives us more exercise as well, as the only form of exercise and daily outing I have each day, is walking my dog!

 

 

Reading

Another thing I’ve not yet started, but want to get back into doing is reading! Looking through my stuff, I have a lot of old books in my wardrobe – Calm by Fern Cotton, a book which really helped my Mental Health, Autobiography books by Celebs, The Fifty Shades Series, and the book after that called “Grey” I remember buying this, after reading the collection, and I’ve never got round to actually reading it, so I think now would be the perfect chance! I used to love reading so much, and I would love to get back into it! I think my sister has her Harry Potter books somewhere too, so I’m sorted for books for a while!

 

 

Sorting out my room/ decluttering

One thing I love to do – when I’m in the right mood for it, of course, is to properly sort out my room – sort out my drawers, wardrobes, clothes etc! I have sorted my wardrobe out, making my shelving area neater, and hanging up more clothes to make more space. Moving things around, and sorting stuff out! Don’t get me wrong, there’s so much more things I would like to do, but I guess I will have to wait for all of this to finish before I can do any of that! But I’ve made a start, which is a step in the right direction, and honestly cleaning and sorting things out also helps with mental health, as it is calming and helps keep your mind occupied!
