Things I Can’t Live Without

Besides your usual, loved ones, water, phone, oxygen, you know… 

My watch, because remember that lovely few days of sun we had this summer? Yes, you’re right, we’ve actually had some decent weather in the UK for once. Well I thought it would be really clever and keep it on whilst spending some time in the sun. I now have a horrific tan line where my watch is.

Disney, especially Disney films. They are the ultimate go to, when you can’t be bothered getting out of bed? Disney film. Can’t sleep? Disney film. Your sick? Disney film. There’s literally a Disney film for every occasion.

My diary. How could I go a week without my trusty battered diary? Not the journal type diary. However my diary has become my go to and I do occasionally write my feelings down in there, along with my notes for posts, and your usual doctors appointments etc noted down.

A meal I couldn’t live without? Bangers and mash. Good old, traditional bangers and mash. My ultimate favourite. None of your fancy shit, I’m such a plain Jane when it comes to food.

Hair dye. I’m one of these people that cannot go at least two months without dying my hair –  thank you to 15 year old me who wanted to ‘experiment’. Whether it’s touching up my roots or changing colour. Dying my hair makes me feel somewhat better about myself. Plus, I can’t stay seem to settle on a colour. Say hello to your blue haired gal, which you may not have seen yet because I’ve lost the selfie love.

You’re probably gonna giggle at this one, but I seriously could not live with out my nanna naps, microwave sleeps, you know them little naps which make you feel revived and refreshed after them? Them! In the morning, the afternoon, lunch time they just make me feel so much better about life. Mainly because I get full on naggy bitch mode when I’m tired.

Tote bags. Quirky, cute, crazy, plain all the tote bags. There is a tote bag for every occasion, every outfit, every mood. The bottom of my clothes rail is a tote bag heaven. I love me a good tote bag to finish off an outfit. Plus they are just so useful.

Since moving back to Nathan’s parents, one thing I have missed more than anything is having my own space. I’m one of these people that love’s to come home from work and just sit in silence for a little while to reflect on the day, and whilst we do have our own room here and I’m crazy thankful for them for having us back – it’s just not the same as having your own front door to close on the world.

What can’t you live without? Let me know in the comments or tweet me!

Hello Autumn | Sunday Thoughts

Let’s get straight to the point. Autumn is my favourite season, my favourite time of year. Why? Because of the fiery leaves, Halloween and of course the cosiest of clothes.

I love to be dressed in copious amounts of layers. Bring on the chunky scarves and cute ankle boots. The burnt orange and warm red tones of not only the leaves, but the make up palettes too. The crisp mornings, the dark evenings. I also think baths are a little more acceptable in the dark evenings, I’m not sure why. But hey, that’s just me.

It seems to strange writing a Sunday Thoughts post again, it’s been months. But I feel like I’m ready again. I’ve had a tough few months, in a lot of different aspects of my life and unfortunately they have impacted my blog. Not because I didn’t want to write, I just didn’t know what to write. I have been scared as to forgetting where to draw the line when it comes to sharing personal things online. But I feel a hell of a lot better so here we are, again.

I’ve finally joined the gym, again. The Moneypenny stone (or two in my case) is definitely a thing, and I am not comfortable with that. So it’s time to get myself back to feeling good about my body image. I also got my other foot tattooed whilst I’ve been away, and being under the needle again felt soo good! I’ve missed being able to spend money on things I actually want rather than the bill monster eating at away at it. Nathan and I have also officially started saving, we actually have some sort of savings for the first time in our lives. Let me tell you coming to payday and still having X amount in your bank to fall back on for emergencies feels SO good. Things are on the up!

Anyway, enough about me. How have you guys been? I’m sorry to have been away for so long, but I’m back. I may not be posting as regularly as I used to but I’m hoping to get back into the swing of things as quickly as possible.

My Week in Pictures

So this week, Nathan had the week off and I was off work Tuesday through to today. I couldn’t get the Monday off but I was more than happy to go to work on that day as I knew I had the rest of the week off.

I know this post is a little late in the day but I have been out to various shops with Nathan picking up more Christmas bits and bobs. I thought it would be nice to show you my week in pictures this week, instead of just rambling on about it.

Here goes.

I admit, I probably could have taken better quality pictures and probably more! But I have been wayyy too busy enjoying life for that this week. Christmas just brings out something inside of me. I have been suuuuper crafty – I have made 3 peoples Christmas presents and a birthday present and my sister text me earlier asking me to make Christmas Eve boxes for my Nieces, and I can not wait to get stuck into that! I might even make myself one. 

I hope you have had a lovely week my wonderful little fairies.

Autumn ASOS Wishlist

With summer pretty much over now, I need to update my wardrobe to keep me warm over the autumn and winter months. ASOS is my favourite place to shop lately, purely because of the range they have on their website, so many options in just one place!

The colder months only mean one thing, jumpers, layers and my favourite ankle boots! I think autumn is definitely my favourite month for fashion because I just love layers and comfy clothes like oversized jumpers and scarves.
