Like most of us, I love a good music festival. Spending time with friends in the sunshine (except it usually rains but still), with drinks, listening to amazing bands, dancing with strangers and generally having an amazing time.
As a fan of all of the multitasking, I figured it was about time I wrote a blog post explaining why I’ve been such a crappy blogger at the moment and giving a health update as several people have asked for a year-on follow up from my CFS/Fibro vlog.
It has occurred to me that although I have been pretty open about my mental health in terms of how it feels, but I’ve never actually spoken about the treatment. I had counselling and am now on medication, and in both instances I found reading about other people’s experiences really useful. So, of course, I’ve decided to share my own. …
So… I quit my job! Okay, there’s a little bit more to it than that. It wasn’t a dramatic, slamming doors, “I quit” moment at all. In fact, I shakily handed in my letter of resignation, after spending a good while considering my decision and of course I still have to work my four weeks notice, whilst my boss tries …
Today’s #BEDN prompt is ‘beauty’, and my first thought was to write something cheesy about how ‘beauty is only skin deep’ or something, but I haven’t had enough wine for that!
However, it did bring to mind the hoards of Zoella-esque Beauty Gurus, with their ‘on fleek’ eyebrows and ombre lips and smokey eyes, and yet as we have seen here, I haven’t got a bloody clue! Regular guest blogger Bethan is my own personal beauty guru and every time she answers my panicked texts (wtf is an eyelash primer?!) with cool calm confidence, I wonder where I was when everyone else was at ‘how to be a successful woman’ classes?!
Today’s #BEDN prompt is “style”. I’m currently sat here in my PJs and a giant varsity hoody from a University I didn’t even go to – so safe to say that I am not the right person to talk style in regards to fashion! That said, I decided I’d do a little home office tour, as it’s the only room in the house that is entirely mine, (& the kitten’s too of course!) and I think it shows off my “style” the best.
An advanced copy of this book was kindly sent to me for review by the publishers.
This book follows super popular, football star (of course) Ryden as he navigates life with a small baby after the death of his girlfriend to cancer. So, it’s pretty heavy, though ultimately enjoyable to read.
Today’s prompt for Blog Every Day in November was ‘Love Mondays’, so I decided to do something a bit different with it…
This year, I’ve decided to take part in Blog Every Day in November (#BEDN). It’s November 1st and I had already forgotten until now (4pm) – good job Codie! I’ve never been great at doing something consistently everyday, I can have the greatest intentions but my head is always in the clouds so to rarely pans out. Hopefully BEDN will be different!
Today’s prompt is “Something New About Yourself”…
As we discovered previously, I bloody love Lush! In the last blog, I discussed my favourite bath products, so today I thought we’d branch out and look at what else Lush has to offer!
