2016 Blog Post Round up

2016 has been a super busy year for me, especially in terms of Blogging. I have had amazing opportunities come my way, ones that I really thought I would never experience like attending some fantastic events, reviewing amazing products and getting to meet some bloggers who I would now class as friends for life. Because of blogging my life has changed forever in more ways than one.


2016 Reflections

2016 has been one hell of a year to say the least... We have all  been through so much! With this year being one of thee absolute worst in terms of how it will be written in history, it's no wonder most people want it to be over and done! With the likes of Alan Rickman, David Bowie, Lemmy passing away, Brexit happening and Trump becoming president it's no wonder we just want to forget about 2016 altogether, it's being horrible,
 But personally, I have had an amazing year and I have achieved so much. So that's what today's post is all about, my personal 2016 reflections.


Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone!

I hope you are all having a fantastic day, I know I am.
It has been a great morning watching Leon run about, ripping his presents open and just generally having the best time ever. Seeing his smile really does light up my life more than anyone will ever know!

Have a Fantastic day all you amazing people out there.

15 Thoughts before sleep

Lately I have been having trouble sleeping because my mind seems to wander, it likes to remind me of everything I've forgotten to do and everything I plan on doing the next day. I feel like it's an endless cycle that likes to show up at the worst time, when I just want to unwind and fall asleep after running about after the little one all day.


Playlist; My musical addiction

Lately I have been super addicted to listening to music. I have made myself a few playlists for different moods but I seem to keep going back to the same one, I don't have a fancy name for it or anything, it's called "playlist 2" but I find that it really puts me in a good mood which is what I've been needing lately. I've found that my moods been a little up and down so I make a point of putting music on for at least half an hour a day to just give me that little boost. I usually stick it on when I'm getting ready or cleaning as it helps me to stay motivated. It also helps that Leon really likes the music so he dances about to it which I think is great, he's always been shy about doing anything like that in front of anyone, even me. So to see him enjoying the music as well brings me joy. His favourite has got to be The Hunna though, he likes to take my phone and dance with it when they are playing. 


15 things I've had said about my depression

Review | Dobell Menswear; Boys Tuxedo

A few weeks ago I Received a tuxedo for Leon from Dobell Menswear, as soon as I seen the big cardboard box I was really impressed with the packaging, it was well and truly safe from damage which was a big hit in my eyes. I just couldn't wait to get tucked into the tuxedo that was inside, I kept thinking to myself, "I'll have a mini James bond on my hands" Que the internal sobbing of a mother.

Review | Jojoba Company

I love Jojoba oil, I honestly love these type of oils for my skin because they tend to work so well with it, giving me that silky smooth feeling. There are many benefits to Jojoba oil that makes it a great choice like the fact it's the closes oil out there to the natural sebum that your skin produces.


Why I like to be positive

I've had some very unfortunate things happen in my life, things that could have completely broken me into pieces, things that have shaped some people into a completely different person (in a bad way) so now that I'm no longer living in that moment I want to spread peace and happiness. It's my way of saying, you know what life? You threw all this at me and I'm still standing here today, smiling, promoting love and kindness, so stick it!


The Real Glesga Dance Mums

I love going to see shows at the Pavilion Theatre in Glasgow, It's always a great night out full of laughs. For me it's perfect to go for a nice night out with friends that doesn't involve a thumping hangover the next day. I've been to see a fair few acts at the Pavilion such as Peter Powers, The Real Hoosewives Fae Glesga, Wee fat glesga wedding and much more. Most recently I went to see Real Glesga Dance Mums with my bestie and let me tell you, it didn't disappoint! 


Boots Beauty Box #Faceoff

Ahhh, Boots, The place I over indulge in so many items that I don't NEED but most certainly want. It's great for makeup and perfect for all your beauty needs if I'm honest. So when I found out boots had a review panel where you could try out lot's of different products I wanted very desperately to be a part of it, so I filled in the application and waited patiently for an email but then one day, out of the blue I received a parcel at my door, I opened it and it was this beauty of a box! Boot's had sent me their #Faceoff box that has some amazing products inside for me to review, LUCKY!
