My birthday month is almost over. It's been such fun! I am currently half way through a week off from work so I've time to reflect on things and also eat a lot.
I had an amazing birthday in work and with my friends during the evening. I also got FREE pizza courtesy of Heart Radio. Those sort of miracles don't happen every day!
I also saw the Champions League Final where Liverpool sadly lost 3-1. No, I'm not going to cry again!
Of course there was the Royal Wedding which set the world alight! I love the Royal Family, it was such a beautiful day. Harry and Meghan really do make a fantastic couple. Her dress was absolutely gorgeous!

Well, it's Monday again. Where did that weekend go?! I got a few things to sort out today, for example, my prescription has gone AWOL and I need medication. Like today.
I've just come back from the GP surgery, as Queen Victoria said, "We are not amused" -
Yep, I'm not a happy bunny right now. But one thing has cheered me up this afternoon -
What a beautiful photo that is! They look so happy!

Lookbook - Mom Jeans and Polka Dots

A very random title for this Lookbook post I know, but it's basically what it says on the tin!
This is confession time - I've NEVER owned a pair of jeans that weren't skinny jeans!
Why? Because I never thought Mom jeans or any time of other jeans suited me. I always thought Mom jeans would make me look a little bit more fatter than I look. But I bit the bullet and bought a pair from Pimkie at ASOS for £16 - and oh my word, I've fallen in love with them! They are so comfortable and I don't give a s**t if they make my legs look a little bi more on the wider side, they're worth it!

I bought this lovely polka dot wrap top from Boohoo (through ASOS) to go with them, but currently I'm wearing those jeans with a black vest top looking like an extra from Dexy's Midnight Runners - Come on Eileen music video.

It's Monday again. But going to work knowing I'm going out with one of my best friends for a belated birthday meal should surely get me through the day.
So I've just left work, I haven't been to the gym for two weeks, I'm overdue a visit. I need to go. Maybe I can leave it another day. No, I'm GOING. I'm actually kind of glad I went -

How does a person get blog post inspiration when exercising?! It's so weird!
Let's get home, have a bath, get changed and head out for a good bit of food!
What a lovely evening with my best friend! Unfortunately some d***head had to try his best to ruin it -
Some people are so rude and ignorant about disabled people! Yes, I may not have an arm or leg missing and I'm not in a wheelchair, but my illness classes me as being disabled! Honest to god some people must think we like being disabled for the special car park spaces. No mate, I'd rather be healthy!

10 Ways To De-Stress

Stress, what a tense word. We have all experienced it on some level in our everyday lives. Your heart rate increases, your stomach starts churning and the panic sets in. Your anxiety levels hit the roof and you feel out of control of the situation you're in. My inner self starts throwing mugs at the nearest wall...(something I may have done in the past)
But in a way stress can be a lesson learnt in how you handle the same situation again the future. I know stress effects me whenever I experience it. Can I honestly say that I can handle stressful situations in a calm and effective manner? Probably not. But by doing some of the things in the list below, I can totally chill out, take a deep breath and imagine myself relaxing on a beautiful beach in Barbados with a Strawberry Daiquiri whilst swaying on a hammock tied between two palm trees, trying in vain not to topple off. Like that's ever going to happen anyway, but it's nice to think about:

I'm into the week of my birthday. I can't believe how quick this year has come around. It was only this time last year I was in Liverpool with my girls celebrating my 24th. How time flies.
I've woken up to a glorious sunny day, happy Bank Holiday Monday everyone! I'm hoping to get the chance to sit outside and get some sort of tan, but not too much, as the antibiotics will make me burn if I stay out in it for too long. Sigh.
I've just come back from my first visit to Goldcliff this year. It was lovely to breathe that salty air in my lungs!

Yes, I’ve reached a quarter of a century in my life. I’ve turned the big 25 (not like it’s a special birthday, but you know)
Being in my mid twenties now *drinks a shot of vodka to drown my sorrows* I surely must have learnt a lot since 1993. Learning to walk and talk was the start of it all, then learning to take Creon was another one. Not the normal childhood milestone, but it was for the podgy five year old taking tablets before her Home sandwiches in school.

Why I Started Blogging

I went through a blogger's block (the equivalent to a writer's block) a little while back. For the life of me I couldn't think of anything to write. I started typing out something then I would immediately press the delete button cause it was complete and utter rubbish. That was the cycle that was repeating itself constantly - write, delete, swear, repeat.

We're back to Monday again...jeez. I feel like I didn't get a lot done on my weekend off. Saturday I was at christening all day, then yesterday I didn't get loads done, except blogging stuff. But still, needs must, it's time to go to work.
I have come home to find an ASOS parcel casually lying on my doormat waiting to be opened. It's something I've been wanting to buy for a while now -

Also, please excuse my dirty mirror, I need to remind myself to clean that this week Another thing to add to my to do list. *sigh*.

Six Ways To (Kind Of) Spend A Bank Holiday

We are into a Bank Holiday weekend! I cannot wait to go to bed on Sunday night knowing I don't have to set my alarm for 6:00am. Heaven. I'd like to know if I'm the only person who makes plans, then doesn't carry them through. For example, I always say "I'm going to the pub for a few drinks!" then that turns into "Let's just stay in, it's too busy everywhere". This can't be just me, surely?
Anyway, here are some ways you can (possibly) spend your Bank Holiday:

The “I Wish I Had” Mindset

When I’m sat around the house doing nothing, my mind goes into nuclear overdrive. I think of all the things I need to do on my ever growing to do list, but mainly I get the thinking about all the things I wish I had but don’t have in my life. Yep, quite a sucky topic.

"I wish I had a flat stomach"
"I wish I had my own flat"
"I wish I had more followers on Instagram"
"I wish I didn't have CF"
