A while ago, I wrote about the five Love Languages – what they are and how to find out yours. I got some great feedback from people who had never heard of this and were surprised by their results, so I thought I would do a bit of a follow-up. After all, it’s all very well knowing what your partner’s Love Languages are, but do you know how best to cater to them?
I am, and always have been, a hopeless romantic. I’m a soppy mess who cries at romcoms and used to fall asleep dreaming of falling in love on a train/on holiday/in a theatre. I’m happily married now, and Steven is absolutely perfect, but please believe me when I say, I have had some hilariously disastrous relationships to get to this point. They say you have to kiss a few frogs, but I was almost knee deep in slimy toads.
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.
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!
I LOVE Lush. As someone who spends an almost obscene amount of time in the bath, I am a self confessed Lushie, and could happily talk anyone’s ear off about the many wonderful things about Lush products. So, I figured it was time for a blog!
I wasn’t sure what to read after my current run of books was going so well, so it took a little while to find, but after perusing my Goodread’s bookshelf I decided I liked the look of this one (literally judging the book by the cover!).
Generally, in my everyday life, I’d like to think of myself as pretty low-maintenance. When it comes to buying gifts, for example, family and friends often remark how easy it is to buy for me. I don’t want diamonds or designer clothes, a battered old book, novelty socks or craft supplies would make me much happier!
So when it came to planning for the wedding, I figured my vision of a beautiful, outside, rustic themed ceremony was pretty low-maintenance too.
How bloody wrong I was!
