HAPPY SELF LOVE DAY!

Happy Self Loving Day!!

Okay maybe that’s not quite the title… But I like it! However, Happy Valentine’s Day!

This was my first “single” Valentines in the past 3 years… actually about 5 years! And I am COMPLETELY more than fine with this. I’ve enjoyed it! Isn’t it amazing how when you change your focus and perspectives, your life changes. Instead of focusing on someone and making them happy, fulfilling their dreams and expectations like I have done previously, in the past 4/5 months I have started focusing on myself. Something everyone should do… trust me. It can only end in pretty freaking positive results.

Hoenslty, the “single” girls Valentine isn’t bad. Today I got up early, made myself an awesome breakfast, went to work, served some beautiful couples their lunches, came home, watched The Mask, got some work done, stretched, de-stressed and overall enjoyed my Tuesday. Because thats what today is. Tuesday. Another day in the week.

It upsets me when my friends get upset about being alone today. These young, amazing, intelligent, beautiful women! don’t know their self worth. These women getting jealous and upset over seeing other couples instead of embracing the knowledge that what’s for you wont pass you. When you’re meant to fall in love and get super beautiful valentines together with the person of your dreams it will happen.

Until then, rock V Day yourself! 

Do something for yourself this Valentine’s Day. Love yourself. Name something about yourself that you are proud off. Know your worth. More importantly, know one individual cant change your worth you fantastic human beings!

Myself? I am now away to pick my own movie to watch this evening with some delicious smelling candles and a coconut face mask.

Be your own Valentine. Love yourself!

Jm Storm love 

Does anyone else have someone they follow religiously? 

I came across a writer called Jm Storm a few month ago and cannot get enough of his words. I follow him on Facebook, which I stumbled upon and haven’t left since! Each day he posts pieces as you will see below and I just love them. They are beautiful, insightful and full of passion. So! I thought I would share some of my favourites.

Going through my phone I actually have around a 100 of these saved!! So here’s some of my favourite!

As you can see, most of his posts are typed up on a typewriter which again I just adore. I will post his Facebook link below encase anyone else wants to give him a follow.

Do you like as much as I do?! 

A Woman Should…

Came across this on Facebook and had to share. Feeling the #girlpower #girlboss vibes today!! 

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ….
Enough money within her control to move out…
And rent a place of her own
even if she never wants to
or needs to… 
Something perfect to wear if the employer
or date of her dreams wants to See Her in an hour… 

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE …
A youth she’s content to leave behind….
A past juicy enough that she’s looking forward to
retelling it in her Old Age….

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE .
A set of screwdrivers,
a cordless drill, and a black lace bra…
One friend who always makes her laugh…
And one Who lets her cry…

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ….
A good piece of furniture not previously owned
by anyone else in her Family…
Eight matching plates,
wine glasses with stems,
And a recipe for a meal that will make
her guests feel Honored…
A feeling of control over her destiny…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
How to fall in love without losing herself..
HOW TO QUIT A JOB,
BREAK UP WITH A LOVER,
AND CONFRONT A FRIEND WITHOUT
RUINING THE FRIENDSHIP…
When to try harder…
And WHEN TO WALK AWAY…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
That she can’t change the length of her calves,
The width of her hips,
or the nature of her parents..
That her childhood may not have been perfect…
But it’s over…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
What she would and wouldn’t do for love or more…
How to live alone…
Even if she doesn’t like it…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
Whom she can trust,
Whom she can’t,
And why she shouldn’t take it personally…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
Where to go…
Be it to her best friend’s kitchen table…
Or a charming inn in the woods…
When her soul needs soothing…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
What she can and can’t accomplish in a day…
A month…
And a year…

Hello 2017…

It feels weird to be back writing here. I’ve opened up my laptop to write so many times but never found to words to something I have always enjoyed doing so much.

The last time I wrote I was 2 weeks into my Mini World Trip  and loving life. I had just graduated, was back with my boyfriend, the love of my life and on a trip of the life time (can you feel the if it’s too good to be true, it probably is moment coming? Wait for it!). I was in Thailand and my boyfriend and I started to break up. It was pretty horrible, especially when you are thousands of miles away and can’t do anything about it or even get your say properly.

In a way, I am so incredibly happy I was away with my friend when it happened. I got to see there is so much to life, I was seeing the world and all it had to offer. Why should I offer my all to a boy who doesn’t appreciate everything I had? So I picked myself up and got on with the trip of a lifetime. And it truly was.

However, when you get home reality hits. I was alone, had the holiday blues, no “life” plan  (which every adult seems to think graduates should have?!) and the person I love had dumped me and got a new girlfriend before I had hit home soil. It’s been pretty bloody shit. 

It’s funny how the people around you are truly the people who can make or break you. I don’t know where I would be without my family or girls. They have helped build me back up and kept me sane. They have helped me party my ass off and taken my mind off anything that could bring me down. I am so lucky that I have amazing people in my life!!

So I haven’t been in the right frame of mind to come back and write yet. Every time I have I usually got myself upset as a lot that is on my blog are memories I shared with him. So… here comes the biggest cliche of them all… NEW YEAR, NEW ME!!!…. Just joking. But I have been super excited to say goodbye to 2016 and get stuck into 2017. The past few weeks I’ve been putting myself out there, going on dates again, focusing on my health and wellbeing, spending time with amazing people and just enjoying myself and doing things for me. Your happiness shouldn’t depend on a person other than yourself.

I have a lot of plans for 2017 and I can’t wait to share them all. I also can’t wait to finally write about my trip away!!! I keep looking at photos and can’t get over how lucky I was to go on such a trip at my age.

I’m going to share my favourite words and my favourite picture that sums up how I’ve started this new year and how I intend to make it my year.

Travelling update!

Hello all!

I’ve officially been travelling for 2 weeks – how did that happen! 2 weeks to go!

So far we have seen Dubai, Bangkok and are in Koh Samui now. We leave for Sydney on Saturday and then go to LA and end in Las Vegas! 

So far this trip has been incredible, we have seen so much and been able to finally celebrate that we both got our degrees! 

I plan to post about my trip when I get home as I quickly realised when I got to Dubai I didn’t want to be on my phone typing up my experiences and not living them! However, and I’ll show it properly when I get back, I’ve been writing in a little diary small entries about each day so I won’t be forgetting anything and I’ve loved doing that! 

So for now, I leave you with a travelling cliche quote! True and cheesy – I adore that! Enjoy the rest of your summer guys! 

Goodbye!!

That’s us all ready to go! We are off on our mini world trip! 🙊 I am so excited to see some of the world! I don’t know how much I’ll upload when I’m away, depending on wifi I might just post when I get home but we will see! Speak to you all (maybe!) in a month 😁

Work work work

This is 100% me! However, this is my last weekend working before I take off on my travels on Thursday! Eeek! 

Puppies in the Garden

How cute are my puppies?! 😍❤️ some fun in the garden with Bonnie and Clyde yesterday in the sun! 

I haven’t shared some photos of them in a while so I thought I would because the are just the cutest!! 

Bonnies our girl and the cream one and Clydes our boy, the black one. It’s so hard getting a good photo of him as he just all blends unless he has that pink tongue out! 

Fantasy Land


Who’s to say that our world isn’t the right world?! Goodnight 😘🦄🦄
