Hello Autumn

/ October 20, 2017

So I have been a little bit absent recently, I am really sorry about that. I have been redecorating the front room and hallway and it has been a bit manic the last few weeks, I haven't actually been able to relax for a while now! Once it is complete I will show you the change.

But going forward I am going to be doing some new posts on the blog and get back into the swing of things. I have a post that I am extremely excited to see go up in a week and I cannot wait for you to see it...

I have been catching up on a lot of sleep and just trying to get the front room done in time for Christmas which I cannot wait for. I have secretly been watching Christmas films telling myself its for a blog post but I honestly love watching them!

I am going to be starting Youtube next week when I can. I am going to try and film 3/4 videos in a few days and get them all edited and sorted so I can be ahead of myself, I honestly don't know what the schedule will be yet as I am still figuring that out.

I will be back this weekend with a new post! I hope you are all well and enjoy!!

As Autumn is fast approaching, I was doing some window shopping online and I came across a few items that I have fallen in love with. I love to be cozy and comfortable this time of the year, have to admit I haven't just been looking for me. So below I thought I would link some items that I have found and show them!

Starting off with something for Poppy! Now she does tend to get a little bit chilly in the evenings sometimes so I like to get her a jumper for this time of the year, nothing too thick but something that gives her a little bit more coverage! This is from Amazon you can find it here.


Now on I have a whole wish list on Boohoo so I can put everything on here, I am loving their jumpers and T-Shirts at the moment here is just a few that I have found. 
This is perfect for them Autumn evenings either chilling at home or out on a walk with the pup! 

I don't actually own any shirts like this and I thought it would be nice for an evening out with some jeans maybe even leather style trousers!

I just love this. Admittedly I don't tend to go for this style of shirt but I love this shirt!

This is only just a small amount of what I have actually found so far this month. Let me know what has caught your eye this month?

So, I was thinking about the seasons the other day and how it all changes. Like for instance in the spring and summer, we tend to start going out more in the evenings and being sociable. However, when it comes to Autumn and Winter we tend to stay in and watch TV, which got me thinking what will I be watching this autumn. Below is a collaborative post.  

Personally, I would love something like these Panasonic 4K TV to watch the below TV shows on this autumn, I mean look at the image quality on these TV's how amazing would your favourite show look! I have sat down and compiled a list of TV shows that I will be religiously watching this year and some TV shows that I will continue to watch! 

I also have to have some kind of snacks whilst watching these shows and let's face it when it comes to Autumn and Winter the best snacks can be found in most shops! 


Great British Bake Off

I love this program, I must admit I was a bit sceptical when Mary Berry left and a lot of changes began to happen. However, I am loving the humour from Noel and Sandi, I think they work well together. I love the dynamic of the whole show now and it doesn't bother me at all that it now has adverts!

The X Factor

Now if you're anything like me, you know as much as I do that The X Factor means the run up to Christmas. This means pure excitement when the first episode aired on Saturday the 2nd September this year. Evenings will start to get darker earlier and cosier when you come inside. 

Dr Foster

Admittedly I never watched the first season in 2015, I decided to give it a chance last week and watched the first season and I loved it! So naturally, I had to watch it when it came back this year last Tuesday and I am still hooked! 

Game of Thrones

Now. If you haven't watched Game of Thrones yet, give it a chance and watch it. I honestly binge watched all the seasons 1 - 6 in about 2-3 weeks and then when Season 7 aired on TV I was absolutely destroyed when it finished. I have now started to watch Season 5 onwards with Mark as that is as far as he has gotten! :( 

One Tree Hill

I adore this programme with all my heart and I will re-watch this programme repeatedly. I pretty much know most of the words by now to most episodes and I love everything about this show. 

Sex in the City

CLASSIC. If you have never watched Sex in the City please just go and put Season 6 Episode 7 and you will see Sarah Jessica Parker in a whole new light! This is the type of programme I can watch all year no matter what!

Now those are my top TV Shows that I will be watching or re-watching this Autumn/Winter. What are yours? I would love to know!

Autumn is Coming...

Hey!

Its that time of the month where we reflect on the items we love! I only have a few this month because I haven't really experimented much with new products. Let's get started!


Here we have my body and bath favorites.

  • BLEACH London - Rose Shampoo and Conditioner - Since I used their semi-permanent dye to go Rose Pink I decided I wanted to pro long it - This product is so moisturising and refreshing. Especially because I have bleached my hair 3 times!
  • Knight & Wilson - Colour - Freedom - White Blonde Toner - This product SAVED my hair! When I bleached my hair it went Yellow with platinum parts (Due to me dying my hair for a while before) This product honestly changes it completely!
  • Fake Bake - 60 Minute Self Tan  - If you're like me I tend to not like to wear fake tan to bed because I cannot stand having to wash my sheets the next day. However, with this product you can leave on for up to 3 hours the longer you leave it the darker it becomes and then you just wash it off and you're sorted!
  • Garnier - Micellar Cleansing Water for Combination and Sensitive Skin - After wearing makeup for a whole day I love that this is so refreshing on my skin especially if my skin is irritated.
  • Soap & Glory - Hand Food - Holy Grail! This is the only product that sees my hands through dry times.

Here is my favourite Makeup for this month!
  • Maybelline - Dream Satin Liquid - 3 True Ivory - I love this drugstore foundation, Coverage is buildable I always set my foundation as I don't like the dewy look. 
  • Collection - Lasting Perfection Concealer - Fair 1 - Another Holy Grail. I don't need to explain this god product.
  • NYX - HD Studio Concealer - CW01 - I discovered this product this month. I haven't stopped using it on areas where I highlight really evens the highlight out.
  • MUA - Undress Your Skin - Pink Shimmer - I love love this highlight it is so bright and just amazing
  • MUA - Wonder Vanishing Cream Primer - I have struggled to find a primer that doesn't clog my pores and feel heavy on my face. I apply this with a brush using a little each time and a little really goes far!
  • Primark - Matte Liquid Lipstick and Liner - In Store only! :( - If you are looking for an alternative to the Kylie Jenner Matte Liquid Lipsticks these are honestly a really good dupe! Pigment is unreal, the only thing I will say the colour of the packaging is slightly different to the product you are getting.
Here are swatches of the Matte Liquid Lipstick and the MUA Undress your skin Highlighter.


So here are my August 2017 Favourites. Tell me below what products you have been loving this month.

As Poppy gets older I wanted to start documenting her little life on here, lets face it, it is as much her blog as mine! :) 

So I thought I would put some pictures together and document how far she has come! 


In this picture she is 11 weeks and 4 days old. When we picked Poppy up from Wales we thought we were going to be in for sleepless nights and just mayhem, but she was such a delight and surprise. From the minute we got her home she went to the toilet outside, of course we had a few accidents inside but majority of them were outside. She would sleep from 9 pm till 6 am without stirring or any accidents!


In this photo she was 4 months and 5 days old. By now madame had learnt how to sit, stay, down, up, speak, quiet, I had started teaching her how to sit pretty and other tricks! She is one smart baby!


In this photo she was just over 6 months old! She had grown so much in this time. Admittedly I probably noticed it the least out of everyone but she had gotten so much bigger. She was no longer my little baby. 


This was taken just before her 1st Birthday. She got royally spoilt on so many levels. In treats and in dinner! She even got a few new toys! She was now bowing on command and sleeping in her crate every night!

And here we are 3 days before 13 months! She has grown so much. She has learnt so much that its beyond me sometimes how smart she really is. Poppy has been raw fed now for 4 months and she loves it, and even better yet we love the change its had in her. She is so happy now compared to dry food. Her coat is unbelievably shiny and soft and her teeth are so clean and white. Her behaviour has changed and calmed a lot as well. I love the change Nutriment has had on  Poppy.

Have you got any pets? I would love to see them!

So recently I have been thinking about things that make me happy. I have a few that I absolutely love and in all honesty, they give me shivers thinking about them! So let's go.

Christmas...

Who doesn't love Christmas, I am the type of person to be thinking of Christmas all year round. (Currently listening to Christmas music *NoShame*) I love the fact that I get to spend time with the ones I love and I get to see my cousins faces when they open their presents. The food!! Well if I could have Christmas dinner every Sunday I would but then it wouldn't make it special would it! I especially love the run-up to Christmas. I am playing Christmas music from the 1st December, it's the only time Mark will let me!


Halloween...

What isn't there to love about this holiday, spooky movies, cozy nights in on the sofa with candles going. It is the epitome of Autumn! I love sitting down and watching Hocus Pocus, it's a classic! and of course its close to Christmas!


Walks in woods in Autumn...

I love walking in the woods all year but something about walking through the woods and seeing the season change right before your eyes really does something for my soul. Poppy loves the puddles and getting filthy so it's a win win situation!


Poppy...

What is there left to say about this little puppy! Well, she's no longer a 'puppy' anymore she's 13 months old on 24/08/2017. It's coming up to us having her for almost a year and wow what a year it has been! She has come so far. I love this little girl with all my heart!


Mark...

It's gone past 2 years since I first met you. Although I actually met you 10+ years ago without knowing! I love you so much, It's hard to put into words how much you surprise me every day. You are my rock in more ways than one. You don't just make me happy, you make me feel like I can do anything.

So that is it, guys! Things that make me happy. What makes you happy? Let me know down in the comments.

I suffer from depression and anxiety, I have done for years now. On and off over the years, it has had its really bad times. Today is one of them days. I struggle to find clarity through all the noise. I wake up feeling defeated and stressed even though I don't really know why!

It's not easy, no one ever said it was, but nobody said how bad it really is. That is the cold hard truth that when I was told that I was suffering from depression and anxiety nobody really sat there and told me how bad some days really get. How hard it is just getting out of bed let alone actually living the nightmare of your day.

All that goes through my head on days like today is noise. I can't make anything out of it, I can't understand why I can't stop it and I feel exhausted, wow do I! All I know in this precise moment in time is that I know I am down and I don't know how to stop it. I know there's no magical fix for it and I know that time heals but how much more time!

I like to think that sometimes I can work out whats wrong and if I do that then the noise will stop and I can calm down and think, however, this is always not the case. I just find it bizarre that I can have a day like this and know that tomorrow isn't going to be as bad and I will get through it. I love my brain at the same time as hating.

I wish I could just wake up and not feel like this but I have to realize that this is a part of my life for now. It isn't permanent and I will make sure that tomorrow is a better day, but for now, I will ride this wave.

The fact of the matter is, is that I can't even focus on watching adverts at the moment without anything else going on. I want to be able to sit down and write all of the issues going on that maybe causing this but the noise at the moment is too much!

Bad Days ARE HARD

The end of an era is an important moment in a lot of peoples lives as they go through life they notice big moments coming to an end and as this isn't really a personal moment for me it is important to me.

Pretty Little Liars will finish this Wednesday on Netflix. I have been watching Pretty Little Liars since season 1 back in March 2011 on MTV. Personally, at first I wasn't sure on the first season but it kept me watching every week. I found myself every week falling in love with the characters, I had a few relatable moments with the character Hanna.

However, as the seasons went on I found myself loving the character Emily more and more. I think the reason why it was so important to myself as I found a lot of relatable traits in myself. I mean I didn't have a weird stalker sending me weird text messages haha.

It was a program that connected with so many people on so many different levels. We all found ourselves holding on to the next episode every week just to see what would happen, keeping us all on our toes for years! Even when we thought it was over it wasn't.

I am honestly sad and upset about the fact that it will be ending tomorrow and I have already started to rewatch it all over again. I hope that tomorrows episode brings me shock and sadness and happiness all at the same time like it always does.

So, tell me what is your favorite program that has ended or is ending soon?

Back in the day when we were younger, we think that there is nothing we would change! However, as you get older and you look back you start to think I wish I knew it back then! Here are my 10 Things I wish I knew earlier!

1. CREDIT!!!
Now when I turned 18 I thought that the world opened this whole new world of credit and being able to get a phone on contract and all these other fancy things, however, I have since now learned that credit is a good thing as long as you look after it! I took out a phone and got a store card the minute I turned 18 and I am still paying for it now. I did not look after it at all!!

2. FRIENDS
Not all of your friends from school stay your friends. It is a hard lesson to learn and it doesn't get easier as you get older. I only have around 3-4 friends I still speak to from school, I feel that as you get older you mature and go your separate ways, not in a bad way but in a way that's good for everybody involved. However, I have always been told if you can count your best friends, on one hand, your a lucky person!

3. BILLS!
I wish I knew when I was younger how truly hard it is to 'adult' every day! I mean there are bills for everything! Even unexpected ones that turn up and you sit there thinking where did this come from. Bills are not the fun part of growing up!

4. RELATIONSHIPS
You may be one of the lucky few that met your one true love at a young age and never had to deal with heartbreak, but this is one of the biggest lessons I have learned growing up. Your heart is so fragile when it comes to letting someone in and then when they are no longer there it breaks into a million pieces and you think it will never get easier, but it does. I promise!

5. SCHOOL
I left school before my GCSE's because I was bullied and I really didn't like school at all. (Secretly have a problem with authority) However, as I have grown up I have learned that it was a huge mistake leaving school early. I wouldn't change it now because I probably wouldn't be where I am now. I would strongly advise against it!

6. RUSHING
There is no reason at all in life to rush anything! Take your time and let it happen when it happens, rushing is no good for anyone in life! It adds stress that is not required.

7. RELAX
It will be okay! Whatever is stressing you out it will be okay, it may not be okay now or tomorrow but it will be, I have learned that stressing out about even the small things is something that is not healthy. You cannot control things that are out of your hands, relax, take a breather and figure it out in your own time.

8.BODY IMAGE
Your body is your body. I used to look in magazines and look at all these stunning women and aspire to try and look like them. You will never look like them, genetics designed you the way you are. Yes, you can change things you are not happy with but it is not worth getting upset with yourself because you cannot be that woman in the magazine.

9.MONEY
It does not grow on trees! Use your money wisely, I mean yeah we all buy nice things we deserve the money we earn but it does not last forever. Save where you can you will thank me later!

10. CAREER
You may be in a career that you have been in for several years and love it, but there is still some of us out there that do not know what they want to do. I have worked in several places ranging from offices to retail to childcare to restaurant and me still at the age of 27 know what I want to do and that is okay.

I want to hear your 10 things you wish you knew earlier write some down in the comments below.
