My Goals for 2019

Hello my lovelies,

I hope you are all doing well and have had a lovely Christmas and New Year. I cannot believe after all the preparation and hype that is it and it is all over. I had a lovely time with my family but now it is back to the daily grind.

I got some new furniture for my beauty room so while I was off I got stuck in to reorganising everything. I am going to declutter and minimise all the products i have. I have far too much for one person and there is just no need for that!! So this year I want to try and cut down on the excess products and keep only what I need.

I am not massive in to the whole New Years Resolutions thing, where people make these ridiculous plans to do things that by second week in January its all out the window. Eat less rubbish, no more caffeine, don't waste all your spare time playing sims.... You know really unrealistic things that are just never going to happen. However, this year I have made myself some goals to achieve this year. Things I want to accomplish and I thought I would share them with you.

  • Organising my beauty room. Over the last couple of years I have neglected the room I do all my filming in, because I wasn't so focused on my channel and stuff I just started using it as a dumping ground. So I have decided this is the year I am going to get my room looking pretty and ready for filming at the drop of a hat. No more firing everything to one side of the room.
  • Concentrating on building my channel and blog more. I want to put more effort in to blogging and filming and sharing with my followers and hopefully building that following up more. I also want to get more involved with the blogging community, beginning with my local community. There are so many more people in Northern Ireland in the social media scene than I had really taken in to consideration. So I am looking forward to becoming a more active participant and getting to know more bloggers this year.
  • Finally focusing on my health, this is my most important task of this year. As many of you know I have had so many health set backs over my life and continue to fit against them daily. I do know that if I looked after myself more and reduced my weight I would find myself in a better position. For the health of my heart I definitely need to lose weight. I don't want to do a fad quick fix diet, I want to retrain myself to eat only when I need to and not when I am bored or just watching TV. I haven't had the most healthy relationship with food and have found myself almost binge eating on occasion. That stops here. I want to feel good in myself and about myself. I am focusing on eating more basic meals that I put together myself. No store bought sauces and processed foods that are so unhealthy. I want to lose 4 stone, but I don't want to get hung up on the numbers going down. I want to focus on seeing a transformation in myself. So I am going to track my progress from the start of this year until the end I am going to take weekly pictures of myself and at the end of the year I want to look back over it and see how much I have lost and see how much better I feel within myself as well. I know it won't be easy but I know that it will be worth it. 
Thank you all so much for stopping by to read my post. I hope you are all well and 2019 is off to a good start. What are your goals or resolutions for this year? Do you make plans like this or do you think it is naff?

Take care my lovelies, See you next time.

Fibromyalgia isn't a real illness!!

Hello my lovelies,

I hope this post finds you well. Yes you read this right. I don't believe that Fibromyalgia is a real illness!!

Ok ok, put the pitch forks down!! Before you start a lynch mob, I am not saying that people with it aren't sick. Quite the opposite. I just feel that this mystery illness Fibromyalgia has more to it than just one illness!

For a start it really isn't a diagnosis at all. It is the final straw after a process of elimination. You go through so many tests you will have had more pricks than kerplunk! You will have seen so many different doctors that you will feel like you see them more than your family. By the time they see you don't have a, b, c or d they have no clue so they tell you it is Fibromyalgia. They don't know how you got it, why you got it or really how to treat it either.Every study that is done contradicts the previous study. Some say its to do with nerves, some say its to do with blood. Some doctors claim there is a test to diag…

LMX - Little Mix Makeup Brand Review Part 1 Shout out to my Pout

Hello my lovelies,

I was so intrigued when I saw that there was a new makeup collection exclusive to Boots. LMX is a brand brought to us by Little Mix band members. They have everything from eyeshadows to highlighters.

I purchased a couple of box sets from the Boots 3 for 2 range. Sadly one item came broken. I was gutted but Ho hum, I moved on and just reviewed the rest of the products on their own. I will continue my reviews of the brand as soon as I get my replacement.

So my two items I have thoroughly tested are the Shout out to my Pout Liquid Lipstick and Liner collection (rrp £18) and the Rock in the Gold Get the Look Palette (£14).

Lets start with the lip products, get the negative out of the way early. I purchased this kit of 4 lip liners and liquid lipsticks. I chose this specifically because it was nude tones and I thought well at least one will suit me, how wrong was I. I found them so orange toned, none of them suited my skin tone I was so dissapointed. They tout this as a n…

Living with Chronic Pain: My Positive Story!

I saw a post on a facebook group recently. It just said, Does no one have a positive story about their Fibro. It stopped me in my tracks. We always hear the bad and how awful living with Chronic Pain is, and don’t get me wrong the life I live is not what I ever expected to live, but I am so blessed to be able to stand up and say me I am a positive story!!
Nearly 7 years ago my life hit rock bottom. My body had had enough. I was working in a nursing home and absolutely loved my job. My body was not loving it though. After months of being in more pain than usual I went to the doctor expecting him to give me a sick line for a few weeks and after a rest I wholeheartedly believed that I would be back at work in about a month. That was not to be. I went from bad to worse while we tried to find suitable medication. The doctor took me off the pain relief I had been on while we tried something else, the problem was we then realised the full extent of the pain my body was actually in. We didn’…
