Not Today Sadness: The Ultimate Happy Playlist

Hello, you! It’s been a while… You should know that right now in my head after typing that, all I can think of is the opening of Britney’s big comeback song ‘Break the Ice’ where she says ‘it’s been a while… I know I shouldn’t have kept you waiting… But I’m here now’ because clearly, you’ve been waiting with baited breath for my monumental return like we all did for Britney’s post 2007 resurgence.  Anyway, it’s been a bloody rough month. In my last post I spoke about how I was bored of recovering a month after my surgery, HAHA – two months on… I’m still recovering. I don’t know why I thought a ‘three month recovery’ would mean a couple of weeks to actually recover from the surgical pain and then another few weeks of feeling tired, GOOD LORD, I was wrong. It’s two months on now and I’m just bloody knackered. I’ve genuinely had some of the worst days of my life since my last blog post, I’ve felt incredibly lost and I’ve really struggled – in a way I never really have before. My second surgery absolutely obliterated me, I have genuinely felt dead… Like the only thing living about… View Post

Drive? Drive.

Hello, you!   It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Big, big thank you to every single one of you who have asked when I’m writing my next post, you truly have made my day by doing that and you’re the reason I started typing this. To be honest with ya, I’ve felt pretty, bloody uninspired these past couple of weeks and felt very ‘urgh’ about things and as such, have been on many a ‘clear my head’ drive – which leads me onto the topic of this post, crazy how these things happen, ay?;) I think there’s a lot to be said about the beauty of cars. Not in the ‘get me an Audi R8’ and ‘wow, what a brilliant engine’ kind of way, but in a ‘nothing cheers me up quite like driving around singing at the top of my voice’ type of way. Even when I’m in the best mood, I find it can always be improved by good music and a decent drive. On good days, I can be seen with the windows down (weather permitting, of course), blasting out songs like ‘One More Time’ – Daft Punk and ‘Galway Girl’ – not the Ed Sheeran tune but… View Post

Rocking the Red Lip

Hello, you!   Today has been a shitty day, but I managed to conquer it with the number one weapon in my arsenal – A RED LIPSTICK. I don’t think there’s any other type of make-up that makes me feel as strong as a kickass red lip and sometimes, you’ve just got to drag yourself out of bed and put your war paint on.     Loads of people have said to me ‘I don’t feel confident enough to wear red’ or ‘red lipstick won’t suit me’ – NO! I genuinely believe that there’s a red lipstick for everyone, bloody hell, sounds like we’re talking about ‘soul mates’ here, but with lipstick, we may as well be. I believe in red lipstick suiting everyone as strongly as I believe that all men look good in a blue shirt – something that no one has yet proved wrong – fellas, take my advice on this one;) It’s just about finding a red that suits you, or one that you love and feel comfortable in, whether people think it suits you or not – to hell with them, it’s your time to SLAY. Whether it’s a bright red or a red wine… View Post
