Hello Beautiful People ❤

I hope you had a nice weekend? It goes by too fast doesn’t it?

I’ve been thinking recently of how much my life has changed over the last few years. How much I’ve changed really. While we are supposed to be foolish when we are young, there are a few things I wish I could go back and tell my 16 year old self. It’s amazing how much one’s perspective can change and what you can learn in just a few years. Continue reading

Healthy Eating: 7 Tips for Getting back on the Wagon

Hello Beautiful People ❤

Happy Monday! For those of you who seen my Confessions of a Secret Snacker post that went up yesterday (read here) you will know that I let the healthy eating slip last week. While I did blame the good weather, I know it is my own mindset that is behind it all. I finished the week off in style aka with a take away and plenty of chocolate and started Monday with a fresh head. Continue reading

See the Good


Be the Change you wish to see in the World


Hey Guys,

Today I wanted to share three videos with you that really made me smile. I’m sick today and am admittedly quite a bad patient so the fact these videos managed to make me smile, I figured they have to be good.

There seems to be nothing but negative news at the moment and it’s easy to see why people are losing faith in humanity. There’s no denying that there are plenty of bad things going on in the world, but there are also great things happening everyday.


No matter how big or small, I think it is important to try and focus on the positive things that happen around us everyday. Don’t feel that your acts of kindness are being over shadowed because I can guarantee they make a difference to someone.

And finally, I know it’s everywhere but if anyone else out there needs cheering up like I did, then watch it as many times as you need. The cuteness does not fade!

I hope you all had a great weekend and are enjoying your Sunday evening. It’s the first day of Spring so make sure to kick some ass this week 🙂

Until Next Time My Loves

The Real Meaning of Christmas

Hey Guys,

Well it’s D-Day, yes I know, shocking that I am a Christmas Fanatic, so this post is of course based around my favourite time of year. This year in the run up to the festive season, I have been thinking about what it is that makes Christmas such a special time of year. Yes while it is great to get presents, I think as you get older (I’m a ripe old 23!) your perception of Christmas begins to alter. It becomes more about spending time with family and friends and seeing their faces when they open their gifts. So many tragic and unfortunate things happen every day, it really makes you appreciate having your loved ones safe and happy. At the end of the day that far out weighs the monetary side of Christmas.

I have put together a small collection of videos that communicate the real meaning of Christmas. Regardless of their circumstances, everyone deserves a little something to make them smile at Christmas. I hope you enjoy and you all have a lovely Christmas with your nearest and dearest 🙂

Merry Christmas My Loves
