Basically this is me…

What doesn't kill you DEFINITELY makes you stronger

Zoella Lifestyle 

I am a big fan of Zoella and when I saw her recent YouTube video going through her new range Zoella Lifestyle I was really excited!

Her new range was released on the 19th September which just happens to be my birthday! So it would have been very rude of me not to put in a small order. I’ve been away for a couple of days celebrating my birthday so by the time I got to the Boot’s website the items I wanted had sold out, but luckily Superdrug still had them in stock!


They arrived today and I’ve gotta admit I LOVE THEM!

So what did I get???


TheNaps Fix Everything” Pillow 

As a girl fighting an ongoing battle with a chronic illness, Yes – Naps do fix everything! and I find I’m napping more and more. I really do love this pillow and when I saw it I knew it would be purchased!

“Once Upon a Time” Journal 

I’ve been after a new journal for a while and when Zoe showed this on her video I really liked the style. Admittedly it costs more than I would usually pay for a notebook but it’s really good quality and it smells amazing!

“Warm Hands Warm Heart” Travel Mug and Fingerless Gloves 

I’ve been after a travel mug for a while and I love fingerless gloves so this seemed like a good fit for me.

I also liked that the slogan ‘topped with cream & sprinkles’ as I’m lacto free and can’t have cream anymore. It makes me laugh. I know, I’m weird.

I know there has been some bad press regarding this range and the price. I am on a small budget and bought what I could afford and I honestly think for the price, effort and quality of the products. It is of good value.  And it is like anything else, don’t buy it if you aren’t happy with it.

I personally am very happy with my products and very glad I bought them. Was a lovely extra birthday treat for me.

As alway, thank you for reading.

March Favourites

I have a habit of being negative and even though March has been a rough month. It has also been a pretty awesome one.

So to celebrate this fact, at the end of every month I am going to write about my favourite things that have happened and stop being so miserable all the time!

I restarted my blog!!! and I’ve loved ever minute of it. I am loving writing again and I have many posts planned in the future. I am also very grateful for all the responses and support I have received since I have started writing again.

Spending Time with my Friends 

I have been lucky this month to have had lots of catch up with my friends. Earlier this month my uni friends came up to stay and we had a fabulous weekend.

Last weekend I was apart of a tweet up where we went to the harry potter experience in Watford and then for food afterwards. Was lovely meeting up with the girls who I have been speaking to on twitter and my lovely husband came with me to look after me and due to being in a lot of pain and not feeling great I ended up having to be push in a wheelchair around the experience. So grateful he was there for me.

Didn’t matter how hard I pushed they wouldn’t let me into Hogwarts!

I went to the cinema on my own

A strange thing to put on my March favourite list but I really enjoyed doing this. I really wanted to see Allegiant but had no one to go with. I had been feeling really rough all week and cabin fever was setting in, so I decided to go on my own.

I have always thought it be weird to go on my own, but it was actually fun and I got to see the film and rebuild my confidence after my relapse.

The film unfortunately was a bit of a let down. I enjoyed it and the experience however it was a filler film. But I got out of the house and am looking forward to going on my own again.

Reading

I do like reading a book and after replacing my broken tablet with a Kindle Fire I was having a sort out and found an author called E.M Tippetts.

The first book is called Someone Else’s fairytale and it is free on Amazon Kindle.

The story is about a Student with a dark history called Chloe and a movie star called Jason. I read the first book in a day and ended up buying the other books in the series as I loved them so much.

The Happiness Planner

I am a big fan of Zoella, I can quite happily spend a morning watching her vlogs and last month she spoke about the happiness planner. I have been after something like this for a while, where I can actively be positive and see the goodness in my life. When I saw her review I knew I had to get one.

If you are interested in having a look yourself, here is a link to their website  http://thehappinessplanner.uk/products/the-52-week-journal

I am hoping this will help me in my quest to become more positive and see the goodness in my life.

My last favourite experience of this month has got to be The Donkey Sanctuary in Sutton Park. When I met up with my Nan last week, I asked if she would like to come with me and we had great fun seeing all the Donkeys.
