A good start to 2014

Okay, I hold my hands up and admit that I haven’t exactly kept to what I said and post more on here. However, in all honesty, it’s been really nice to take a break from writing and actually start getting out and about.

This year alone (even if we are only in January) has been more eventful than most of last year. I’ve been to the beach twice in two weeks, I’ve flown a kite and I’ve even spent the night in the back of a transit van (trust me, it’s not as dodgy as it sounds I promise!).

I’m beginning to become more of a “yes” person and it’s really, really fun. It helps that I have a boyfriend who encourages me and gives me the confidence to try new things. We’re even planning to go to Paris together in March and I couldn’t be more excited! Mainly for the croissants and what not, but I’m sure the eiffel tower will be a treat too!

I have even found my new love in the form of a foundation, I won’t give too much away just yet, but a full review will be posted soon – it’s a bloody goodun!

Overall, it’s been a good start to the year. How about you guys?



For the first time in a long time, I can truly say that I am feeling “fan-dabby-dosy!”. In other words, I’m pretty ecstatic!

Since I moved house, a lot has changed and all of it for the good. I’m not going to bore you with every single detail, but basically – long story short, I was in a dead end relationship that wasn’t making me happy!¬†We started to make each other feel more miserable than anything and although it was hard -really hard actually – I decided to get up and go and move on with my life. After all, I am not a tree (in case you didn’t notice) and therefore, that means I can move and go wherever I like. If I wasn’t happy, it didn’t make sense to stay in an unhappy environment any longer. Life is too bloody short!

Now, I’ve met someone new and life has suddenly become pretty damn exciting! It’s really nice to have that excitement back that I really, really craved. It’s also nice to make plans and have exciting things lined up..which results in me having a permanent cheshire cat smile plastered all over my face. Yay for me!

It taught me a lesson though, don’t sit around complaining that you are unhappy, because that won’t change a thing. You have to get up and do something about it, even if it scares the shit out of you. It’s worth it!

So, yeah – brace yourselves for more posts about the new man in my life, I’ll try not to be too “lovey-dovey”, promise!
