Life Lately

Where do I start? I know, I’m sorry, I’ve been a little MIA lately in the blogging world. But hey, I’ve been enjoying life. Is that really something to be sorry for? Definitely not, but I am sorry for not keeping you updated. If you follow me on social media, you may have noticed I have been spending a lot of time with family and friends. Although I haven’t really been doing a lot other than chill, it’s been nice.

Can you really believe we’re almost 5 months into 2017 already? In just over a month we will be at the half way mark and that is scary! I feel like I have stepped on to the sidelines of the blogosphere lately, and in all honesty I’m glad. Why? Because it all seems to have built up a whoooole lot of drama. 75% of the things I’m seeing on twitter is people ranting about other bloggers and girl, I just do not want to be a part of that. Bitching is not something I like to be a part of, especially when people don’t give others the chance to defend themselves. In my opinion, we’re supposed to be helping each other out and with my little corner of the internet just being a hobby I don’t want to be involved in all of the drama. I like my little drama free life over here.

Nathan and I now have a little Sunday ritual where we go for a nice Sunday walk. Whether it be morning, mid afternoon or in the mist of the evening. It is so nice to reflect on the week that’s gone, and have a nice little chat about how things are going. With us both working full time and having other commitments outside of work we don’t really get a lot of time to speak in the week, and we usually just end up ranting about work. So a nice leisurely Sunday stroll does the trick to wind down from the weekend and prepare ourselves for the week ahead. PLUS the weather has been beau-ti-ful the past couple of weeks. I am loving Spring already. I just need to update my wardrobe now. Work bonus, why are you taking so long to come around?

I knew this would happen. All in all, this has been a bit of a rambling post but hey! This is my space and I’ve enjoyed updating you all on my life. That’s all for now, I’m hoping that I’ll get my blogging mojo back soon but I’m not going to force it.

P.s I hope you’ve all enjoyed the bank holiday thoroughly!

The Tattoo Queen

Okay, so since I turned 18 I have to admit I love nothing more than sitting under the needle for a new beauty added to my canvas. I’ve always wanted to do a little photo archive post on my tattoos, purely because of how much I love each and every one of them.

Since becoming a little tattoo addicted my dads new nickname for me is; the tattoo queen. He’s never loved my tattoo’s purely because I am his little girl, he doesn’t want my skin covered in permanent designs. But he understands that it’s my body, and my choices.
If any of you follow my Instagram, you will have seen my tattoos before but for those of you who haven’t I thought it’d be nice to do a short post of all of my tattoos. Altogether I have 10, mostly on my legs with a couple on my arms. I got my first on the day of my 18th birthday which is the smallest I have.
I then went for my second the day after, I just couldn’t help myself and that’s when I knew I’d definitely be getting more. Here are a few photos of my little collection;

 

 

 

 

98% of my tattoos were all executed by the same artist Daniel Buckler, he’s a local artist from my hometown and tattoos at Dexterity Ink alongside Cathy Sue, Tom Clayton and apprentice Jemmy Lee.
Dan specialises in more traditional pieces, his style is awesome and I definitely recommend you check out his work.

 

My Halloween special; which I got last Halloween, and my most recent – the delicate line work flower on my wrist – were both done in the same studio but by Tom. When I first started getting my tattoos he was in the latest stages of his apprenticeship and which he has now completed.


A lot of people have mixed opinions on my tattoos but as I said above; it’s my canvas so the choices I make are my own and I love every single one of them. 

Am I going to get more? Definitely.
Am I going to regret them one day? Definitely not. 

Do you have any tattoo’s/tattoo stories? I’d 100% love to hear them!
