JULY PAYDAY WISHLIST

| On
Thursday, July 14, 2016
I am seriously trying to get my blogging mojo back, so currently I am writing post number two of the day, and aim to write at least another two, a girl can dream to be THAT productive right!?
So I really love writing wish list posts, just because it makes me excited for payday and it makes me excited for new things that I have been lusting over for weeks. 
I have been scrimping for a few months because we've had a lot going on, so this month i'm 1000% treating myself and I am literally counting down the days.
So if you're trying to save and be sensible I suggest you click away now, if you can't resist then enjoy these little payday gems. 






It's no secret that I am a long time love of the brand Olivia Burton. I already one of their beautiful rose gold watches and after stumbling upon this little beauty on ASOS, I am officially sold. The quality of these watches are second to none and add a real touch of class to any outfit. 




I am a total sucker for all things mustard and all bags tote so naturally I need this in my life, right now. I feel like this bag will also really be a great little autumn statement bag as well seeing out the end of the summer. 



I'm planning this month to go back to contact lenses this month so whilst I wait to have my eyelashes done semi permanently, these Rosie Bea lashes are my go to for falsies. These particular ones are the perfect natural everyday lashes called Fling, the Rosie Bea collection is forever growing and I am absolutely in love with the whole collection.





I have been forever loyal to the real techniques miracle complexion sponge and I always will be and would always recommend it to those on a modest budget. However, now the beauty blender that the likes of Kylie Jenner has hit UK drugstores, it is impossible for me to ignore it. 




Yes, I am in love with this summer's "basic bitch" sunglasses and I don't even care. I saw the girls on Love Island wearing them and started searching everywhere for them. Etsy UK have pairs for a ridiculous £12.99, i'm sold. 



That's all for my July payday wishlist, I would love if you could leave me a comment below letting me know some high end beauty purchases I should be making this payday as I am totally out of the loop over here. I hope you've enjoyed the post & I haven't dented your bank balance to deep.




5 REASONS WHY CHANGE IS GOOD.

Tuesday, July 12, 2016



Ever since I had my daughter Harper, my fear of change and the unknown that change creates has grown worse.
I hate being spontaneous, I hate surprise and I hate being taken out of my everyday routine, it frightens me so much and I really struggle to cope when things don't go the way I planned them.
But more recently, we have been itching for something new, something to look forward to and something that will take us to the next stage of our lives. So last Monday we decided to give our notice in on our beloved 3 bedroom house, in favour of a month at the in laws and then relocating to the city. 
This was not an easy decision, especially for me.
 I have a lot of comforts and conveniences in my hometown that make it just an easier ride to stay. I am now 20 weeks pregnant and the idea of uprooting me and my little family this far in stresses me out, but in the same breath I crave the future we have planned so desperately and have done for some time.
Me and Justin are just not settled by the quiet of rural life, especially after living in the thick of Newcastle. It changed me, being so connected and being part of the buzz is something I have missed ever since we left 3 years ago. 
I want Harper to have the ability to have choices, choices in her education and choices in her hobbies, something that is extremely limited where we are now. It was SO limited for me as a child growing up in a small town with one primary, junior and high school. I constantly felt the need to break out, which made me so unfocused and distracted from my education and from making the right choices, something I will always wish was different. 
  So although change itself gives me mad anxiety and although giving my notice in for my house felt like jumping into deep water without holding my breath, it's going to give us a different and for us, an improved lifestyle that I just can't deny myself, Justin, Harper or our new arrival. 
So in an attempt to psych myself up even more, here are 5 reasons why change is GOOD.


#1 CHANGE BRINGS NEW ADVENTURES.

#2 YOU CAN'T MAKE IMPROVEMENTS IF YOU DON'T MAKE CHANGES

#3 BIG CHANGES ARE SCARY, BUT NOTHING HAUNTS YOU LIKE REGRET OR WHAT IF?

#4 YOU MAY LOSE SOMETHING GOOD, BUT YOU MIGHT GAIN SOMETHING EVEN BETTER

#5 THE STRONG DESIRE FOR CHANGE IS CREATED BY UNHAPPINESS OR BEING UNSATISFIED, ONLY CHANGE CAN IMPROVE THOSE FEELINGS.
