30 Day Blog Challenge Day 15

Hi Guys 

Hope your all ok 

Day 15 is all about thinking of my future, 5 years in the future to be exact, but what do I want to do in the future??? 

 I could do the dream, win the lottery be able to spoil my friends and family and have a good life .... or I can be realistic, lets go with the second one. 

 Part of me, thinks 'Omg 5 years that is AGES away' but then the grown up part of me thinks 'actually this is not that far away its already SEPTEMBER!!' so I am torn on the whole thing but by the time I am 32 I would love to be married. As most girls do I have always thought about my wedding day and it has changed so much from when I was little, in the beginning it was a HUGE poofy dress with a mile long train with a million flowers. Now that I am 27 I have narrowed that down a bit (due to budget only of course if I had my first dream of winning the lottery this would totally still happen haha). Instead I would love something small, with the people that mean the most to us, but the most important thing is that we all have fun. 

 My second thing I would love to have happened in 5 years time is that I would love to either have or be thinking about having a baby. I love kids, I work with kids and seeing them all the time gets you so broody especially when the new babies come in, I know I probably see them at good times but there just amazing and being a mommy is a dream to me.

 Another thing I would love to do to have overcome my fear of flying and have gone on a holiday abroad maybe Italy or even America. I have never been on a plane and have never even thought about going on one, its just because of my fear of heights. I think its better to have my feet of the floor, but you never know I may have gotten over this fear in 5 years and be jet setting everywhere .... hopefully. 

So what about all of you guys? What do you think you will be doing in 5 years??? Any thoughts on how I can get over this whole flying fear??

See you soon 

Lots of Love

Shopping trip to Yours

Hi Guys 

Hope your all ok. 

A couple of weeks ago I thought as a little treat to myself that I would go shopping, so I popped into the Warrington Yours Clothing store. The last time I had gone in it didn't have a lot of new styles and I ended up leaving. I put up a tweet that I wasn't happy there wasn't much of a choice and Yours replied they actually replied, I was so excited. 


Firstly I think that it is amazing that such a huge retailer like Yours actually gets back to their customers, secondly total fan girl moment hehe. 

So this time going in I was first greeted by some of the brand new styles I had seen on the website, the next thing I noticed was that lovely word "Sale". 

I wondered around the front part of the store and saw a blouse I had been eyeing up on the website so I grabbed it in my size and kept looking around. I wondered into the sale section and saw a top that looked so nice, thankfully it was in my size. 

I also picked u two of the tops for £12 one fully purple and the other was purple and stripy. Right at the back of the store was a last chance section and in there I found a checkered blouse which was in my size, I took that and headed straight for the changing rooms. 

First I tried on one of the 2 for £12 tops, 

(You can find the 2 for £12 tops here)

I have to admit I didn't like it on, my lumps and bumps were showing and it seemed a lot more tight on me then on the hanger, but if I would have gone a size bigger it would have looked too baggy on me sadly, so unfortunately that was a no. 

Next was the blouse I saw when I first walked in that I had seen on the website, 


(You can find this blouse here)

This top is amazing, it is very sheer but I can wear a top under it. I have a few blouses like this from Yours and I love them all, it skims right across your body it doesn't bulge anywhere and would look amazing with either jeans or a pair of leggings. The only problem I found with this was that around the button holes and the stitch lining at the bottom was very threaded and had come away which I didn't like, I thought about buying it because it is so nice and the design was amazing but I really worried that even if I ordered it off line the material would still do that on the buttons and the edges so sadly I didn't buy it. 

Then I tried on the top from the sale 

(I have looked on the website and I cant find this anywhere 
but here is the link to the sale, they still have lovely items on their)

This I loved, it didn't make my limps and bumps stick out, it went across my body so nice and I love the material it is so nice and soft. The top part next to the neck is a sheer material, it doesn't hide the hanger things, you know those little bits that help to keep it on a hunger in the store and in your wardrobe, but you can easily cut those off. The top on me (being the midget that I am) comes about a quarter of the way down my thighs which just covers my bum. What I love is that I can wear this with leggings and it would cover my bum and I can also pull it up a little bit and wear it with my jeans. I bought this and is currently in the wash as I couldn't wait to wear it. 

Finally I tried on that lovely Last Chance blouse, 



I am in LOVE with this top, the material is lovely, it isn't tight on my arm at all, which normally happens with these types of tops. The only down side to it is that if I button it all up then it bulges open because I have a big bust. Again this slides over my body not pointing out my lumps and bumps. I bought this too, even though it has that gap, I thought to myself I can wear my black top underneath and maybe add a little black belt just under the bust to give it a little more shape. I love that instead of buttons it has poppers and you could also wear it open with a top under or totally closed up. Very versatile. 

 The thing that I felt a little confused by was that a couple of days ago I went onto the Yours website, I was looking through seeing the new styles and come across none other this this top, it turns out that it wasn't Last Chance, it was just in the wrong section. I'm not mad just so glad I saw it otherwise I would have missed this gorgeous shirt since there is not a lot of sizes left on the website at the moment. So if you like it grab it before its gone, check it out here

I had a great time in the store and the staff were very friendly and helpful, so thank you Yours for having a great social team who reply and listen to your customers, lovely clothes and a great store. 

Hope you guys like my little shopping trip. 

See you soon 

Lots of Love

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 14

Hi Guys 

Hope your all ok 

Today's post is all about my top 3 Healthy Habbit's. 

So here we go 

1: Drinking water 
I do like to drink plenty of water whether it is flavoured or not. Water as well as being healthy for your body is really good for your skin. Your skin is the largest organ that you have and if you do not drink enough water, it can make the skin very dry and and flaky. 
 So if you are having a few problems with your skin maybe take a look at your water in take too and see if you can improve that a little before trying other things, it does take a while, like up to a month but you should see results. 

2: Removing make up before I go to bed. 
Now to be fair I don't do this all the time but I am trying to remember each night. Like drinking more water, making sure you take your make up off each night in the proper way will help to make your skin clear. 
 When I remove my make up I used Nivea's eye make up remover that is just amazing, it takes it off in one wipe, and I also use a Nivea cleaner with cotton wool to take off my powder, foundation and anything else on my face. I also use a night cream, which again is a Nivea cream. 

3: Hand Sanitiser 
I have a little obsession with hand sanitiser at the moment. I have found very cool ones which have sweety smells, like one is bubble gum and the other is strawberry laces :D They are amazing, although I think the bubble gum one actually smells like calpol hehe. 
 After I have held my hamster or done the washing up or prepared food I use it and then spend the next hour trying not to eat my hand haha. I also found soaps which smell like strawberry laces and chocolate orange, which are in our bathrooms. 

So there are my top 3 healthy habbits, today I don't have make up on but I will still make sure that I wash my face and use a night cream on my skin tonight before bed. 

What are your healthy habbits?

See you soon 

Lots of Love

So today's blog is going to be about what is inside my fridge. 

I have been to have a look and at the moment inside my fridge is 

Strawberries: mmmm strawberry goodness I love them for pudding.

Water: We love flavoured water, I'm obsessed with elderflower water (currently sat with a glass of it next to me) and elderflower and blackberry. 

Sauces: Tomato, Brown sauce and mayo, we also have a jar of caramelised red onions. 

Cheese 

Butter

A pack of breaded goats cheese

Vimto: I'll be totally honest I had never tried vimto before I met Paul and now I love the stuff.

Milk

Mushrooms 

A bottle of wine that which is a gift for my friends birthday which I still haven't given to her

A bottle of Prosecco  

And that is it, It sounds like not a lot, but we haven't done this weeks shop yet so I may add to this when we have haha. 

Bit of a simple post but that is it really that is what is in my fridge. 

See you soon

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 12

Hi Guys 

Hope your all ok 

Books have always been a very big part of my life, from when I was little to now. The one that started it all off for me was by the brilliant children's writer Roald Dahl. He wrote many amazing children's books but my favourite was 'The Twits", I always found the descriptions of the characters so funny and always looked for people that looked like them when me and my mom would go out and about. 

I (probably like many other children) found that he was on such a children's level when writing, he had a way of saying things that would make you laugh and talking about grown up situations (like in Matilda) that allowed children to understand. 

My second favourite was Matilda, I remember my teacher in year 1 reading it to us when we had story time in our class, I couldn't wait for the next time she would read it to us, and hated if bell rang and we were half way through a chapter because I would have to wait. Roald Dahl would tell a story so well that I could close my eyes and imagine the Trunchball and Miss Honey. 

He made me fall in love with reading and I thank him so much for that. I know that when I have children I will get the collection and read them all the stories that I love, do the voice and actions just like my teachers used to do for me, and I hope my children love it just as much as I do. 

What about you all, what are your favourite childhood stories? 

See you Soon

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 11

Hi Guys 

Hope your all ok 

FOOD GLORIOUS FOOD!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes today is a blog post about one of my favourite things FOOD!!!!! My top 10 foods as a matter of fact so lets kick it off with....

1: Chicken 
I love chicken, anything to do with chicken, roast, sandwiches, burgers, casseroles, chicken and chips, chicken wrapped in bacon and cheese, chicken risotto, well I suppose you get the picture, anything with chicken (NANDOS) I'm there. 

2: Sweetcorn
Most people don't like it but I am not one of them, I like it so much that I will leave a subway if they don't serve it, which I no is a bit of an overboard thing but I love it on my subway sandwich. 

3: Cheese 
Cheese is brilliant and should be served with everything, I have recently discovered goats cheese with caramelised red onion and its amazing. Cheese is Brill!!

4: Potatoes 
Do I really need to say more??? 

5: CHOCOLATE!!!
I haven't been very well the last couple of weeks and Paul said to me this morning ''what if your allergic to chocolate?'' I could have cried, I just said a blunt 'NO'. 

6: Crisps 
I have some favourite crisps, they are Nik Naks nice n spicy flavour, Walkers Squares Cheese and Onion flavour, my new love is Walkers Mix Ups cheese flavour, it is a mix up wotsits, Doritos, french fries and monster munch, they are such a good mix and all nice and cheesy. YUM YUM 

7: Mayo 
I know it isn't a food but I do have it with about 90% of my food, so I guess I can count it as a food group, right... ????

8: Fajitas 
I only discovered these a couple years ago and they are so nice, chicken and steak are the best, and Tesco's do a heated steak fajita with peppers and sour cream in there hot plate section and that is yummy. 

9: Haagen Dazs 
NOM NOM NOM dessert would not be complete without a little Haagen Dazs Cookies and Creme flavour, its got oreos in and is just so nice. 

10: Scones 
When I am down in Cornwall with my parents I hunt high and low for scones with jam and clotted cream, then sit down and have a nice cup of tea and some scones, they are just amazing, it makes me feel like a lady at afternoon tea hehe. 

Any of these your favourite? Any other things you think I should try?

See you soon

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 10

Hi Guys

Hope your all ok

Today I would like to talk about "Tips For Life''. I am a person who loves to try and think of quotes to help me get through the bad situations (see my previous blog post). It makes me feel a lot better and stronger.

One thing that always gets me through my life and I always think of is this: 

''Your life is a fairy tale, if life isn't going your way, your just in the bad part of your fairy tale 
your happily ever after will come soon''

Try and think of this as my tip to you, whenever you have an argument with someone, don't pass a test or feel really down and not happy, try and think I am in my own fairy tale, this is all about me and my fairy tale just hasn't ended yet.  

For me it always makes me feel like a Disney Princess maybe Snow White, I am running through the woods and I cant find my way out, but I need to believe that I will find that little place in the woods where friends will help me to be happy again. 

I know this is a small blog post but I hope it helps you, since thinking of this really does help me :D 

See you soon

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 9

Hi Guys

Hope your all ok.

What is in my bag is the topic of today's blog. Normally my bag is full of old receipts and wrappers and bits and bobs of make up and perfume, but a couple of days ago I bought a brand new bag and it looks so nice and clean and tidy hehe.

So here we go :D

My lovely new bag is gorgeous!!!! It is in burgundy and is from Clark's, yep I said it Clark's, you would be surprised at how lovely the bags are there now so if you are looking for a new one have a quick pop in and see what you find.


You can find this on the Clarks website here 

This is my baby, my gorgeous new bag, it was £40 and I love it. It has burgundy snake skin detailing on the handle and on the bag tag, which also has a gold sign on saying 'Clarks".

My favourite part of this bag is a bit of security for all us girlie's, 


The zip at the front has this little buckle detailing. I use the zip as a place for my phone and my train pass and it makes me feel a lot better to know that no one can just unzip my bag and take it out. its just that little bit more piece of mind. 

So what is inside my bag???

First I carry my purse, which is also from Clark's (ye I think I have a bit of an obsession) it is only small but I can fit in everything I need.


Sadly guys I don't have a link for this as I got it last year, sorry. 

Next is my lunch box, I tend to take my lunch to work with me I find it a lot nicer on my bank account.


I use my very cute Minnie Mouse lunch box from the Disney store, I love Disney and anything to do with Disney (as people know from my mug collection). This is just the perfect size for my sandwiches and snacks and fits right into my bag. 

The last thing I carry is a pen and some lipstick. 


This is my green paper mate pen. The lipstick is my current favourite from New Look in the shade 'Mink' which is such a lovely nude colour on your lips.

So there you have it that is what is inside my new lovely bag, I hope you guys liked it, I am thinking of doing a 'Whats inside my make up bag" so let me know if you would like to see that?

See you Soon 

Lots of Love

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 8

Hi Guys 

Hope your all ok

So today's blog is all about goals, my current 5 goals. These I found very easy to write, I think about what I want for the year coming ahead and try and do my best to make these goals come true.

1: Improve My Blog:
Number 1 is to make more of my blog, I love writing it and it helps me relax and makes me so happy to think people actually read what I write. I want to try and publish my blog a lot quicker then I do at the moment, which I have trouble doing just because of my working schedule. I tried to put a timer on my blogs but it didn't work right and didn't publish them at the right time. So my main goal at the moment is to focus more on my blog. 

2: Make Some Vlogs:
So I have a youtube channel that I am doing nothing with at the moment but just like my blog I would like to make more of it. Right now I am trying to learn how to edit my videos so once I have learnt that I will be putting together more videos, but I will let all of you lovely people know when I upload my videos. 

3: Redecorating My Home:
Recently Paul and I picked out some paint for the dinning room, Paul also ordered some chalk paint which is amazing for making over wood items. Our dinning room table and a side board we have is made of wood and we are planing on painting them. We have picked out a very light green for the wall, which we are going to use only on the chimney breast, the rest will be kept white. For the chalk paint Paul has ordered a few colours and we are currently sanding down the table and playing around with the colour but it is a lot cheaper then buying brand new painted furniture, plus it is something we get to do together. 

4: Grow My Nails:
I have been a nail bitter since before I can remember, but right now I would LOVE to grow them. I have had acrylic nails and false nails, and I love the way they make me feel. So I am trying to grow them as much as I can, I am using Sally Hensons ''Hard As Nails'' at the moment and it makes them grow so quickly so I am going to carry on using that and see how I go, wish me luck??? 

5: Read More Books:
I have always loved reading, but I feel like I don't have a lot of time for it at night, so I try and read when I am on my commute to work. At the moment I am reading "The Rules of Life" By Richard Templar, it is giving me so much positive thoughts. It makes you think of situations differently, which for me is a really good thing. I tend to over think a lot of things and this book is really helping me not do that. My next book is going to be "The Secret" by Rhonda Byrne which is another positive thinking book. 

What are your current goals? Anything different? Any books you think will be good?

See you soon 

Lots of Love

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 7

Hi Guys 

Hope your all ok 

So Day 7 is all about my favourite songs so I looked on my ipod and at youtube and see all the songs I listen to and brought together my top 5 favourite songs at the moment.

Song 1 : G.R.L Ugly Heart 
This song may be a few years old and I totally forgot about it until the other day while getting ready for work, it came up on youtube as recommended music and I got so excited. I tend to listen to it whenever I am getting ready, it is such a party tune and helps me to hurry but I also dance and sing along to it in between so maybe when I am in a rush this isn't the best song to listen to. 

Song 2: Taylor Swift Bad Blood 
I don't think you can have a group of songs that isn't somewhat connected to Taylor Swift, I love listen to this song and the videos is amazing, bringing together the actresses and models as superheros I think is a great idea. The lyrics are so good.

Song 3: Mark Ronson ft Bruno Mars Uptown Funk 
What is there to say about this song? It is funny, catchy and brings together two of my favourite artists, that is all I can say really. 

Song 4: Little Mix Black Magic 
The video to this song is based on one of my favourite films, "The Craft" with a less of a terror ending twist of course, I have loved Little Mix since X factor and they are getting better and better the more they do, well done girls keep doing what your doing. 

Song 5: Taylor Swift Shake it Off 
Ok ok so I had to include her again but she is brilliant. Plus this song is such an inspiration, it shows that no matter what happens no matter who say what or what ever anyone does just shake it off and be yourself. 

So they are my top 5 songs at the moment what are yours? 

See you soon 

Lots of Love

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 6

Hi Guys 

Hope your all ok.

So the blog challenge continues and day 6 is what am I afraid of. 

I am afraid of a few things so I took my 3 biggest fears and thought I would tell you about them, maybe you have the same fears? Let me know :D

1. Like a lot of people my number 1 fear is spiders, I really hate them. Hate is a very strong word yes but I don't care they freak me out. I keep trying to say to myself that they are probably a lot more scared of me then I am of them but it doesn't work, to them I am a giant and cud crush them at any point, but to me they are a small thing with lots of legs that could jump in my face and kill me at any point. So yeah number 1 spiders. 

2. Number 2 is C***ns I even hate the word!!!!! These are people you find in the circus who make some people laugh but make me totally terrified, I cant say the word I cant write the word but I hate them, they scare me so much. It started when I was very very young and I had had a nightmare one night, I went to see my mom and she was watching 'It" on the tv and I happened to come down the stairs at a point when  little boy was in a garden and "It" ran threw some sheets, I screamed and ran back upstairs and that was the beginning. I cant watch tv shows with them in. When I went to watch 'Inside Out' the disney film and one came on the screen I shut my eyes until it was off the screen, yes I actually closed my eyes at a disney film, that is how much they scare me, 

3. Big roller coasters, I hate how they make me feel, my tummy flips and I feel like I will fall out, they seem to go faster and feel worse when you scream more. When me and my friends go to Alton Towers or anywhere like that I am bag lady/photo lady, anything to get me from not going on those rides, I will go on rapids and things, I have only recently gone on a log flume and that was a big enough tummy flip, but I just don't like them, so if you would like to go to a theme park with me that's fine but ask me to go on a ride and the only reply you will get is "no no no not in a millions years, even if it meant I got a trillion pounds nope sorry not happening". 

So there you have it my top 3 fears, so what are yours? Are we the same? Anyone else have a extremely big fear of c***ns???? Let me know 

See you soon 

Lots of Love

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 5

Hi Guys 

Hope your all ok 

So here we are on day 5 and today is all about my proudest moment. 

I am not afraid to say that I can be a negative person and am never really proud of myself, so thinking about this has been rather hard. Eventually I thought to myself 

'I am an amazing person and I have plenty to be proud of" 

My blog for one, starting this was one of the best decisions I ever made, it allows me to talk to other people about what I think and feel about some things. It also has given me some of the best friends and inspirations a girl could ever have, the Plus Size Bloggers community are so friendly and show nothing but love that everyone. 

My home, I love my home, Paul and I have actually made it our home now and I am so proud of us (I know that is an us but a year ago today I never would have thought I would be where I am now). I realise I can be a grown up and have my own house, pay bills, and learn to budget. This time last year I was living with my parents and thinking about my next night out. I feel like a proper grown up now, sometimes its scary but other times I sit in my living room and think omg I pay for this its all mine (and Paul's hehe) and I am proud of that. 

The next thing I am proud of may seem a little bit weird to some people but to me it is a huge thing. I am proud of myself for being on my own. Paul mainly works at night till about 1 or 2am, so when I get home from work or if I have the day off, I spend a lot of time alone. I used to hate this really badly, I would get really bad anxiety about being on my own, always being scared that something would happen, but since he has gone back to work I haven't felt anxious. When I was at my parents home I would worry about having a bath when no one was in the house, just in case something happened, but here I am fine, I will have a shower I will relax in the living room and I don't panic about it. I am so proud of myself for that, it is such a big achievement for myself.

So for me I guess I don't have one proudest moment I have a few mini ones hat make me proud of myself. 

What about you guys??? What are your proudest moments?

See you soon 

Lots of Love

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 4

Hi Guys

Hope your all ok.

 So far so good with this blog challenge, I'm doing better at this then I am with my photo challenge, I may try and catch up with it tonight for all if u lovelies who have me in insta keep your eyes peeled, for anyone who doesn't click the link over here >>>>>>

So Day 4 is My Dream Job and I'm afraid this has been a hard one. I have so many dream jobs and ambitions for myself to achieve.
I have sort of narrowed it down to three, so here goes:

1. I would love to be a motivational speaker for people with body issues, like someone who goes round schools and does classes with kids, or goes to any events and talk about how to look at yourself and your body differently.
 
I want them to understand that everyone is different, whether you are tall, short, fat, thin, have long hair, short hair whether you are black, white, pink, purple or green lol, everyone is a human and there is no 100% perfect way to be.
One of my favourite things to say to people when they criticise the way they look is "It is our imperfections that make us perfect". Everyone is unique, if everyone was the same this world would be so bloody boring.
Be different, colour your hair, wear make up if u want, wear what ever clothes make you happy, if you want to eat that piece of cake then eat it, if you want to eat salad and go together gym then do it, never let anyone judge you on how you look, because you are not them.

2. My next dream job is just to work with kids, I love kids they are brilliant, and I would love to do anything, nursery nurse, teacher, child minder, social worker. I would even love to be like a play organiser in hospitals to make kids feel a bit better and be included in fun and games, (I'm having visions of patch Adams, without the doctor part).

3. Is to be a mommy. I know I keep going on about it and me and my boyfriend are not at the stage where we wud have children yet, but being a mommy would be a dream come true for me, and yes I would do it right now but I know me and Paul aren't ready yet. One day I will make a brilliant mom, till then I will have to make do with having fun with the kids at work who I love talking to and playing with :)

So there you go my 3 dream jobs, I hope you guys are liking my blog challenge and getting to know me a little more. I will be posting two tomorrow, a fashion piece from my shopping trip a few days ago and then my challenge later at night so I hope you all enjoy.

See you soon

Lots of Love

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 3

Hi Guys

Hope your all ok.

Here we are on day 3 of my blog challenge, I hope you all like it so far. Todays post is all about my favourite quote, the problem with that is I have quite a few, so I have narrowed it down to 3 and I will explain why they are my favourites.

1- "Rome wasn't built in a day"
An old but a goody, the reason I love this so much is because I can be a very impatient person, I want everything done now, I hate waiting, whether it's work or planning a night out, planning for my mom to come and see me, or even when I plan my blog posts, I want it all done now! (I sound like Violet from Willy Wonky and the chocolate factory).
  

I need to learn to be calm and let things come at its own speed. So saying this to myself ever now and again helps to let me now that everything happens in its own time and I can rush it but it won't be perfect, it will be a rushed mess, so take time do it right and eventually you will end up with Rome....  or whatever your being patient about.

2- "All you need is faith and trust.....and a little bit of pixie dust"
Woooooo go Disney!!! This quote says it all really, you can do anything if you have faith and trust in yourself to know you can do it.
  

You can do ANYTHING you set your mind to, you just need to trust in yourself that it will happen. Just take a second to think right now what do I want? Is it to stop getting distracted and do that school/college/uni work but your not sure you will get it right? To start your own blog?  To take that leap of faith in a project that you are not sure you can do?
  

Now try to picture yourself with the result you want, good grades, fab followers, a good future. That can all happen, have trust in yourself that it can and it will happen.


Considering its Disney I'll do my other favourite quote "It all started with a mouse" Disney is a huge empire now (hehe see that star wars reference right there) but remember it all started with one little mouse and it grew, if Walt Disney could do that just think of what you can do?

3- "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent"
Very wise words from an amazing lady Eleanor Roosevelt, just think about everytime someone has made a passing remark, ever made u feel small or worthless, or like you were different in anyway? They can't do that without your consent so don't let them.
  

I speak as someone who has been trolled before just because of the way I look. Why should I give them the right to talk to me like that, I am a person, I matter. No one has the right to say negative things about you. You are a person, you matter, you count, in the grand scheme of things you matter. To someone out there you are loved, no matter if it be you parents, your siblings, your partner, your children, your friends, or you pets, YOU MATTER!!!! Don't let negative minded people shoot you down.

See you soon

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 2

 Day 2 - 20 Facts About Me


Hi Guys

So here we are day 2 and today is all about 20 facts about me. Well for anyone who has seen my Youtube channel (its still a baby in the making) you will know I have already done a 10 things about me, so I wont go over those again, so I have thought about 20 new things to say :D here we go

1 - I am addicted to my phone, if I am able to have it with my I will constantly be on it, instagram, facebook, twitter. I also use it first thing in the morning to listen to music on youtube when I do my make up.

2 - I have just moved to warrington with my boyfriend, in our first home together and my first time (except for uni) that I have been this far from my family, I miss them but they know I am happy and I get to skype with my mom and dad at least once a week.

3 - I LOVE canvas pictures, our house has loads of them. There is one in our hall when you come in the front door, I got it from next and I love it, its called 10 rules for a better life. Paul recently bought a couple more with cakes on and whenever I look at them, it makes me want cake mmmmm cake.

4 - I spray air freshener like it is going out of style, I like things smelling nice, in our living room we have that air wick things that just sprays every so often, and we have one under the sink in the kitchen and one in each bathroom, I am a bit weird when I spray tho, I stand in the middle of the room and spin in a circle while I spray it. Am I a weirdo???

5 - I could eat chicken till it comes out of my ears, chicken breast, chicken sandwiches, chicken soup, chicken crisps, roast chicken, nandos, chicken burgers I could just go on forever, basically I like chicken,

6 - I have never been on a plane, I am scared of heights and it scares em to think that I wont have my feet on the ground, that I am in mid air, I will gladly go on trains and boats (big boats, very big boats, but not something like a canal boat), but I could never go on a plane, everyone keeps saying it is fine but I just keep thinking no no no way too scary.

7 - I commute to work, I currently work in Manchester, and so I have a 30 minute train ride to and from work each day, I like this time because I can catch up on emails, check over drafted blogs and just catch up with the guys on my instagram and Facebook.

8 - I am trying (slightly failing) to cure my fear of spiders. Outside my front door at the moment is a very big spider (and I mean huge, well not huge, he or she has a body the size of a 5p but the legs of aragon from Harry Potter they are HUGE). I am trying to do my best to ignore it, but leaving for work is beginning to become a problem. So fingers crossed he (I'm just gonna call him he, do you think I would feel differently if I gave him a name?? Hmmmm Bob let's call him bob) fingers crossed bob will find a new home somewhere else far far away and not leave any nest presents for us. (Gosh that was a long fact sorry guys) 

9 - I hate sprouts!!!! With a passion, I can't stand them, they taste horrible, they look like a little sad cabbage left over in a shop that no one wants. I hate them, I mean nothing personal or anything but I just don't them. 

10 - My first ever concert was Mcfly and I went with a friend from college, Charlotte (not me, I didn't go alone, another Charlotte). We were both madly in love with Harry and just stood there screaming the while time. 

11 - I am trying to grow my nails, sadly my nails are not getting the message and keep breaking. I use Sally Hensens Strong as Nails, but it isn't working, anyone got any ideas??? 

12 - I have always been and will always be the "Charlotte" of Sex in the City in my friendship group (you know what I mean Keeley)  I am very pro love, I believe in fairy tales I like to thing everything happens for a reason and I love the idea of a happy ending, if you are not happy it just means you are in the bad part of the fairy tale, don't worry your happily ever after will come.

13 - I really really really really like REALLY desperately want a Caviller king Charles spaniel!!!! I am in love with those dogs, it's gotten to a stage where if I go for a walk in the park and I see a dog I can tell at like 100 paces if it's a cavvy, I get excited and then plead with the owner to let me stroke it. 

14 - Kinder eggs are my new favourite chocolate! I love them. Milky chocolate on the outside and a toy inside, what's not to love, the new ones have minions inside, (I also love minions) my favourite is Bob (not the spider outside my front door) and the first minion I got.... was Bob woop woop.

15 - I have been diagnosed with depression and anxiety, it isn't something I go round broadcasting, it's just something I have, I try my best to keep calm and avoid situation where my anxiety can flare up, but my depression is something I just can't control, I've had it for a while now, and my boyfriend is amazing, he understands and does everything he can to help me. He is very much my rock.

16 -  I really like to write stories, I used to write them when I was younger and had planned a young persons novel (which I need to continue with), I love thinking of characters and who people are, going into their back stories, I suppose that is the actor in me coming out. 

17 - Going on the "making things up" route, when I am commuting to and from work, I love to make up stories for the people who are in my carriage, and it makes it fun when I see the same people over and over again because their story grows hehe (yes I admit I am fully weird, but when my ipod is not charged and your phone has no data a 30 minute train ride feels like eternity).

18 - I am totally the kind of person who will read a text and reply in my head but never actually reply, I also do it in real life, I'll be engrossed in a TV show or my phone Paul will ask me a question and I think 100% I have replied, but I haven't I've just said it in my head, note to self: stop thinking people can read your mind.

19 - My biggest and most wanted dream is to have a family, I work in a shop and I am team leader of the children's section of that shop and I get to work with kids every day, and I love them they say the funniest things in the world and with one sentence they can have you in floods of tears laughing or make your heart melt by doing something utter hilarious. I think I am born to be a mommy and one day I totally will be :) and I can't wait. 

20 - Oooooo last fact!!!!! This is all exciting now, hmmmm, I am the most accident prone person you will ever meet. I once ran full on into the corner of an iron door!! Fallen off concrete stumps, walked into lampposts, tripped over nothing, I walk into shelves at work, forget to step up on stairs sometimes. I have pocked myself in the eye, and smacked my head off a mirror getting to close when doing my mascara, which then made me poke my eye with the mascara brush. So ye I am THAT person. 


Anyway I hope these 20 facts about me have been funny and entertaining, and I hope you enjoyed it. Pop back tomorrow for Day 3. 

See you soon 
Lots of Love

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 1


Hi Guys

Hope your all ok,

 So I have decided that I have not spent enough time focusing on you guys and so I thought a nice way for you all to get to now me and for me to show you some more love and blog posts is to do this challenge.

 Day 1 - Your Blog's Name 

So today post is all about my blogs name and why I chose it.

As I have said in many different blogs I started this blog as a way to talk to other people. Maybe you are like me and love make up, fashion, books, movies anything like that. I love talking about all kinds of different things and so having a blog is my way of doing that. 

 The reason I chose A Diary of A Curvy Girly is because this is what I want this to be, like my diary, where I can say anything I want to because this is my tiny bit of the internet, my small section in the huge world wide web. I want to give people advice, share my experiences and try and help people. If I have been though something that you are going through and want me to talk about it then I will, (ooo I sound like an agony aunt in that magazine now dont I haha). 
 The second part is Curvy Girly and you better believe that I am, I go between a size 18-20 dependant on where I shop and what kind of clothes I wear, some people out there will probably think I am not that curvy, but I am, I am also one of those lovely short girlies too, I am a very proud 5ft tall and I have HUGE views on plus size/any clothing that is 'petite' but I will save that for another blog. 

 That is about it, that sums it up really, I am a curvy girl and I wanted to make a little part of the internet just for me, if people like it that is amazing (and I hope you do like it). 

 So that is it for my first day I will be back tomorrow and I hope you will too. 


See you soon guys 


Lots of Love
