20-something wine-downing, cat-snuggling, over-sharing, reluctant "grown-up".
Come along for the ride!
If you follow me on Twitter (which you totally should), you will have seen that last Thursday I passed my driving test! At the age of 25, and having had my provisional for eight years, I passed on my first attempt with 5 minors. Yes mate.
I am an unashamed over-sharer. Whether it be ingrown hairs, repulsive (but hilarious) farts, or embarrassing moments, I’m not afraid to have a chat about the things that others shy away from. I’m not sure why this is - perhaps I just have no shame - or where it stemmed from, but one thing I have noticed, is that for every one person who is horrified and vows never to speak to me again, there are several who find it hilarious and one that finds it useful. That’s where the idea for this series came from.
I feel that this is a running theme in my world. Like, what actually am I doing with my life?!
The answer at the moment is working too much and neglecting my poor blog(s) and Youtube channel. When writing is your job, and you make vlogs for a client, it's easy to forget about the OGs like your own personal blog - which is exactly what I have done for the past year!
A few weeks ago, I reviewed the Mad Beauty Advent Calendar which was full of make-up gifts. Today is the 12 Days of Christmas Beauty Advent Calendar, which is completely different but utterly adorable!
Don’t get me wrong, I love chocolate. The idea of a little square of chocolate every day for the whole month of December is one that brings me joy. However, recently I have been really interested by the other advent options that are out there. Any sort of surprise gift every day is a win in my eyes so I have decided to cover a few of the most popular alternative Advent calendars available this year.
I have been a vegetarian for six whole months (yay!), and I get that that isn't a long time, but hey, we all start somewhere, right? That’s what I want to talk about today. A few people have mentioned to me over the past few weeks that they are considering becoming a vegetarian (most of them don’t eat a whole lot of meat anyway. I ate a lot so it was a pretty weird transition, but if I can do it, so can anyone :)) and I’m always too excited to word may response properly, so I thought I would write it here, so that if anyone needed that last bit of encouragement to quit meat, they could get it!
I am scared of everything. Large bodies of water, groups of teenagers, the gap between the train and the platform - I won’t even go on ghost trains at the fair. I am a grade A wimp. So quite how I ended up working at a horror attraction, I am not sure, but I love it. Here are some things that you might not know about horror attractions!
As a fan of all of the multitasking, I figured it was about time I wrote a blog post explaining why I’ve been such a crappy blogger at the moment and giving a health update as several people have asked for a year-on follow up from my CFS/Fibro vlog.
The kind folk at Volair Spa at Knowsley Leisure & Culture Park invited myself and a few other bloggers to come and experience their spa and I really wasn’t sure what to expect. Spoiler alert: it was amazing.
