Potty Training Diaries.. DAY 1

I’m at that stage with E now where everyone keeps asking me when I’m going to start potty training her. I did try a few months ago but she refused to entertain the idea. She’s almost 3 now so with that in mind, I made the decision to start today. It just happened to coincide with over a week’s worth of annual leave, so what better time will I ever have to get E off nappies?

I’ve read quite a few a books, online articles, blogs and listened to mothers who have already been through this stage. I purchased a Peppa Pig potty as it is one of her favourite characters. I also purchased a reward chart with stickers (from Hobby Craft for £2.50) and a good supply of Cadbury chocolate buttons as a reward.

I started halfway through the day as I was still at work this morning. As soon as I took E’s nappy off, she realised what was happening and went straight into protest. I didn’t give in though and every 20 minutes, kept sitting her back on the potty and explained what she needed to do. Around an hour later, I could tell that she needed to go for a poo, so I sat her back down on the potty. She absolutely bawled her eyes out but SHE ACTUALLY DID A POO IN THE POTTY!!!

I was LITERALLY screaming with excitement. Once she was done, I showed her the poo and she was pretty shocked. She definitely understood that she did something good and kept saying “Yes” when I told her she was a really good girl! We then tipped it all into the toilet and she flushed it away. I then let her pick a coloured star and stick it onto the reward chart, which she absolutely loved doing. (Let’s just ignore the part where she demanded I then let her use ALL the stickers and cried for ages because I said no)

At this point I thought,hey, what is all the fuss about! That was pretty easy! Little did I know, E had made a plan to NEVER sit on the potty again. She point blank refused. She cried and cried when I tried to get her to go for a wee. Even though she had 2 cups of water to drink, she did not wee in the potty for the next 4 hours. In fact, she did not wee at all.

I tried everything, from giving her a chocolate button once she sat on the potty, to making her dolly sit on it, but nothing worked. As it’s now bedtime, I’ve popped a nappy back on her to sleep in and she has fallen asleep within minutes.

It has definitely been an experience today. I do feel agitated and upset at the fact that she has been crying most of the day, but I do know that it will get better. The plan for tomorrow is to take her out of her nappy as soon as she wakes up and try all over again!

Moments…. |RAMBLINGS

Isn’t it strange how you build your life, build a routine, settle into your everyday and then suddenly something happens to ping you straight back to certain moment. It’s more than v a  just the moment though. It’s more about the feelings and emotions that are attached to that moment. 

This all sounds cryptic but it’s not meant to be. I was just going about my life when suddenly I just remembered a certain point in my life. I remembered how it made me feel and sadly how much I genuinely missed that part of my life. There is no one that makes me feel that way and leaves such an ache in my heart. 

Everything happens for a reason, I am a strong believer in that but every one must have days like this right? Anyway, I was just having one of those moments and felt like I had to write it all out! 

My Thoughts: Podcast with Alfie Deyes and True Geordie

This time around, I made a promise to myself that I would only blog when I am inspired or passionate about something. Since watching the podcast where True Geordie interviews Alfie Deyes aka Pointless Blog, I have had a lot of thoughts running through my head and I wanted to share them.

I had never heard of True Geordie before watching the video podcast so I can’t tell you anything about him other than the fact that he interviews a lot of YouTubers and has said many hateful comments about Alfie in particular. It was almost a 3 hour podcast and even though I do love all things Alfie, I am actually quite surprised that I watched it all! They mainly spoke about him, his life, how and why people dislike him and his opinions on taboo subjects regarding certain YouTubers etc.

I felt a variety of emotions through those 3 hours. Firstly, I felt quite defensive. A lot of people don’t like Alfie, and that’s fine. His content is not everyone’s cup of tea, but how can you dislike somebody without even knowing him? Alfie’s fans or followers feel like they do know him because they have watched him for x amount of years. That is what makes him and other daily vloggers different from your average celebrity. I sometimes stop and think, how can I – and I am nearly 28 years old – enjoy watching a 24 year old man just living out his life, on YouTube. It does sound a little odd! However, it’s not even the content I enjoy. It’s Alfie, his personality and how he treats other people that draws me in. I have been watching for almost 4 years and I’ve gone back to watch every single video he has posted on YouTube. I’ve been watching him for so long, that what seems like a 2 minute clip on him shopping in Waitrose is more than just that for me. For me, that small clip is about him making more healthy choices with his food and cooking more.

Within the podcast, they talked about child exploitation and more quality content. They kept pushing and digging at Alfie, that surely, with 11 million subscribers across all his channels, he should be making more quality content. He should be travelling across the world and making arty footage, rather than chilling on the sofa at home or going into town. It sounds all well and good but I don’t want to watch that! If I wanted to watch arty footage, I would watch The Michelaks (whom I do love). I watch Alfie, because I want to watch what he has been up to in the day and what he’s been up to with Zoe. Actually, a huge part of watching Alfie has been to do with his girlfriend Zoe aka Zoella. I think she is amazing and she doesn’t vlog as much, so it’s always good to see her in the vlogs.

The  other point was child exploitation. He doesn’t have any children yet but True Geordie name dropped the SacconeJoly’s and said how sick it made him that they exploited their children for views. I then started reading the comments on the video – which seriously annoys me, by the way! I don’t know why I read them – and so many people were slagging off the SacconeJoly’s. If you don’t know who they are, they are an Irish family. Married couple Jonathan and Anna, their 3 children and 5 dogs! They film vlogs every single day, around 15 minutes long. I also love them. I COMPLETELY disagree with the fact that they exploit children! They are loving parents and their vlogs started WAY before they had kids! Jonathan is a very creative man and loves to film arty footage and tell a story. Anna is so down to earth and their kids are honestly so kind and caring. The only way children can have traits like that, is if there parents teach them.

I have to be honest, I have learnt so much about parenting from this family. I am sure they have bad days, but I love how they discipline their children. I love how they spend so much time with them. Yes, they do earn a lot of money, but that money is then used on the kids. If I could do that for my daughter, I 100% would.

Anyway, I clearly feel quite passionate about this particular subject and people should speak out about it. Let these talented people vlog, so we can live vicariously through them! What Alfie does is actually quite achievable and he shows that if you put your heart and head into something, you can do it!

Alfie Deyes – Hackney Empire Show

It has been 5 months since I last blogged and I am disappointed in myself. There just didn’t seem to be anything that I wanted to write about and I felt very uninspired. However, this weekend, I did something amazing and I just have so much to say that I had to type something up!

I MET ALFIE DEYES.

Yes. THE Alfie Deyes.

Okay, wait, I didn’t ACTUALLY meet him. On Saturday, I went to his Live Event at Hackney Empire in London. It was a Q&A with Emma Gannon and he simply answered questions. I was a few rows from the front and was so close that I could even see the detailing in his trainers, so I might as well have met him. So let’s start from the beginning.

 

Alfie Deyes is a British Vlogger on YouTube. For anyone who doesn’t know, vlogging is simply recording your day on video and posting it online. He posts roughly 10 minutes of an edited day, on YouTube. He is sitting on almost 4 million followers. Yep, that is a LOT of people.

screenshot_20170716-224042.png

I found Alfie’s videos when I was on maternity leave. Sick, tired and with nothing to do, I found myself on YouTube, watching make-up tutorial videos. I came across Zoella, whom I’ve been watching for years. I then found Alfie. His video’s just made me feel better about my day and he inspired me to just be a better person. Even when I gave birth and my daughter was in critical condition for a few months, I found myself gravitating towards him on YouTube, for comfort.

I always felt like his fan’s were quite young though. Teenage girls, to be specific, so whenever he did any meet ups or events, I never went. This time though, something in me just said go for it! I purchased tickets and off we went.

screenshot_20170716-224101.pngCan I just say, Hackney Empire Theatre is BREATHTAKING. It is so beautiful inside and it feels so old and full of laughter. It’s one of those places where you can imagine people years and and years ago, sitting down and watching a performance.

The actual show in itself was surprising good. I say that, because how interesting can an hour long Q&A really be? I found that the hour went by so quick because of Alfie. It is so weird to see him in real life and not on YouTube. He really is that tall, his hair is actually that little bit blonde and his laugh is ACTUALLY that infectious! He was so charming, so funny and just so real when he was answering questions.

There were a few negatives that I want to mention though. Firstly, the show was meant to be 2 hours long. When I actually got the tickets, it said 1 hour 15 minutes but it ended up only being an hour. I feel that it could have been longer. Secondly, I feel there could have been more audience participation. They did a section where the audience could ask Alfie a question but there wasn’t enough time spent on it. I just feel like it would have been more of an experience if I had more of a chance to get involved? Finally, this is not really a negative but just an observation. When Alfie has done events or meet up’s before, he has vlogged quite a lot. He picked his camera up once during the event and even in his vlog today, there was barely any footage. I think it is one of the big things you look forward to, if you do meet him. The question is, did you make it onto the vlog! Screenshot_20170716-224048

Regardless of all that above, I did actually have an amazing time. I am 27 years old and feel very conscious that his fan’s are so young. I saw a lot of parents with their kids and there were only a few people that looked like they were my age, on their own at the event. Despite that, I am still so happy that I went. For £12, you get to see Alfie, watch a hilarious show, get a signed copy of his new book and 100 lucky people had the chance to actually meet him as well.

 

It was a brilliant day and I look forward to the next event!

 

Until next time!

 

 

Perks of being a parent.. the bright side 

10. Losing sleep. Never have I realised how important sleep actually is, until I had a baby. I feel like I’ve forgotten how a good night’s sleep is and don’t even get me started on a lay in on the weekend. What is a lay in?? However, the smile on my daughters face when I come to rescue her from her cot prison is priceless and maybe… just maybe worth losing sleep for.

9. No privacy. I can’t go to the bathroom for a shower or a poo. I can’t sit at my dressing table alone. I cant change my clothes without her staring at me. She follows me everywhere!! On the bright side it’s refreshing to see how curious she is. It means she is trying to learn things and work out her boundaries.  Plus, life can be a little lonely sometimes so it’s nice to have company.

8. Sharing food. I can’t remember the last time I had a plate of food to myself. E will scavenge and take anything she fancies and I end up having barely any food left to eat myself. There is a perk in this, being someone who never finishes their meal! With E around, I can eat what I want and give her half of it aswell. This means no food is wasted and we are both happy!

7. No attention. Everyone wants to know how the baby is doing. Everyone asks about her and she dominates the entire conversation.  Don’t mind me, sitting here with a stiffly nose and a sore face from an oncoming cold… just ask about my child! It is great though to fly under the radar and for a socially awkward person like myself, having an easy topic to talk about makes the conversation easier. Confession time – I LOVE taking E to parties and social gatherings. 

6. Your name. This is a weird one but I barely get called by my name now.  I’m just mum. I feel like I’ve lost my identity a little. On the bright side, I adore being a mother and when E calls  me Mama, my heart just melts.

5. Cartoons. I now know every Mickey mouse episode and Peppa Pig episode by heart now. It is on repeat in my house. However I actually love watching Cartoons so now I have an excuse to actually watch it.

4.Problem Solver. That is my main job now. I have to work out what she wants, why she wants it and why she doesn’t want it anymore. My head is spinning at the end of it. On the bright side it’s keeps my brain active and we learn more about each other.

3. Limitations. There are certain things I can’t watch around her and also certain things I can’t say. I feel like I am constantly on watershed! However, this helps me more than  anyone. The less I swear, the better I feel about myself! 

2. Child friendly. When you have kids you start to see the world differently. I don’t walk on the road like normal- I look for dropped kerb with the pushchair. I can’t eat out unless there is a highchair and crayons to keep E busy. I can’t stay out late in the evening as she gets overtired. On the bright side though, it makes me appreciate life more!

1.Time. Time is just flying by. She’s 2 now and before I know it, she will be 10. If I turn around and blink, I’ve missed something! Enjoy it will it lasts…Kids don’t stay kids for long…..

La La Land

I haven’t blogged in a while but I recently watched La La Land and just needed some way to express my feelings about it. 

It’s important to note that I didn’t know anything about this movie other than the fact that it had Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling in it and that it was a musical. I kept seeing it advertised and thought hey, better go watch it!

What an experience. What a movie. Honestly my first impressions were a bit dubious. The first scene is a song which is quite cheesy, but the media student in me recognised that it was filmed in one take and my interest was sparked. 

The story is a little typical. A jazz pianist and an aspiring actress fall in love whilst trying to make their dreams come true. Whilst that is the synopsis, this film is so much more than that. I absolutely loved the chemistry between the main leads. They work together so well and it all feels so real!

The music was probably the best part. I’ve been streaming the soundtrack on Spotify for a few days now. On repeat. In the car. In my bedroom. I can’t stop! Mia and Sebastian’s tune sends chills down my spine when I hear it and I am in love with City of Stars. A Lovely Night and Audition are also firm favourites. 

I have to be honest, I don’t understand why this musical has hit me so hard. I watch a lot of movies and have seen a few musicals. Somehow, La La Land keeps circulating in my head, to the point of obsession. It could be because of the ending.  I don’t want to spoil it for anyone, but the ending destroyed me, so maybe that’s why I keep thinking about it.

Overall, I highly recommend. The scenes were beautifully shot, the music and choreography is amazing and the storyline is really realistic. 

Back again….

I haven’t blogged for a little while and I’m not sure how I feel about it.  My laptop simply refused to work one sunny day in July and it wasn’t fixed until late August. ( it has felt like years but it’s only been a few months. Dramatic much? )By then, too much time had passed and I didn’t feel like writing.

It’s odd but I started this blog to record things and moments with my nearly 2 year old and it became more about reviews and products. I really do love reviewing stuff but surely not every single post has to be about products?

I am now stripping it back and going back to just simply blogging because I love it. I have cancelled my beauty box subscriptions – oh Glossy box, how I shall miss thee – and hopefully this space will be full of posts that really relate to who I am.

I hope you all stay on this journey with me!

My Little Coconut Box | BEAUTY

I was quite intrigued to see what I would get in my My Little Box this month. Last month was quite good and with a summer theme, I didn’t know how they would top it. For some reason, this month I didn’t even visit the My Little Box Facebook page, to see what hints they were giving about the July theme. Imagine my HORROR when I opened the parcel to find that this month’s theme was COCONUT!!!

For those who don’t follow my blog and know from previous reviews, I am actually allergic to coconut. It’s quite annoying as coconut is healthy and good for you. It also happens to be a key ingredient in beauty products AND it’s completely on trend right now. *sigh* So, my heart sank and my expectations dropped before I had even opened the box.

So this is what I received this month:

2016-07-11 16.53.36

Regardless of the theme, I have to admit that the box does actually look quite pretty. Unfortunately, I won’t be keeping this one as it just annoys me and reminds me of how I am missing out on coconut!


2016-07-11 16.46.32

The very first thing in the box was the usual print. It seems quite funny to me now, but I was looking at every single item slowly and wondering whether the next would be related to coconut or not! The print is actually really pretty but I just don’t see any use for it, so I’m afraid it will go in the recycling bin!

I love when MLB wrap the products up so you can’t see what they are straight away. Obviously this one says passport holder on the front, but I didn’t actually see it straight away and didn’t know what was inside. I love the envelope and the bow on the back is such a pretty touch! Even better than that, is the actual passport holder. Look how cute it actually is. I LOVE the print. It feels so summery but at the same time, I would keep my passport in it for any season. The quality seems really good and my passport does look good inside. I am actually really happy with this product, as I was looking to purchase one. I am due to go on holiday in a few months and knew that purchasing a passport holder would be ideal in the long run. Now I don’t have to!

2016-07-11 16.47.11

 

The next item also came wrapped up in a box. I thought it might be make up of some sort, but then I saw the Stella&Dot logo on the side and knew that it would be jewellery. I was pleasantly surprised at the bracelet as it’s really cut! I love the little tassle at the end and the gold is really pretty. Obviously I went to try it on straight away and then came the issues. Firstly, I couldn’t get it on. The size is REALLY teeny tiny so it’s hard to slip on. I then undid the clasp and tried to put it on, which did work. However, I couldn’t get the clasp to hook on. Whilst trying to do that, the other end of the chain broke and I had only had it for 5 minute. How disappointing! I did email Customer Services and they kindly arranged for a replacement to be sent out to me, so that was quite nice!

Okay, onto the beauty products now!

2016-07-11 16.49.10

So far I had gotten away with products that did not contain coconut. My joy was short lived as along comes this face mist. It is a My Little Beauty own product and it’s basically after sun in a mist form. This would have been a PERFECT product to take on holiday with me, had it not been for the pure coconut in it. I knew straight away that I would not be able to use this.

2016-07-11 16.49.43

Onto the second product and would you look at that. ANOTHER product containing coconut. This is a perfume, from Yves Rocher. I was quite annoyed that I couldn’t use it, but I will be passing this along to one of my sisters, or maybe a friend at work. It is a sample size, but it’s also quite a generous sample. I like the packaging, but I can’t really use it!

2016-07-11 16.49.58

The last beauty product is a hand gel. At first I was disappointed because it’s quite a boring product to get. After looking at the info cards, I changed my mind as this would be perfect to take on holiday. Unfortunately, I then spotted the Coco Rico sign – this contains pieces of coconut. So, all 3 beauty products were part of the Coconut theme.

As a bonus item, MLB also sent a sample of this oil. It is meant to help dry and damaged hair. It does look pretty good and I have had a look through the ingredients, which do not show coconut extracts in it, so that is great news! I have not tried it out yet, but will report back on whether it made a difference to my hair or not.


OVERALL

I feel quite split about this box. On one hand, 3 products are completely worthless to me. I cannot use them as they contain coconut. I am annoyed about the fact that they were all the beauty products. On the other hand, the other 2 lifestyle items were really well though out. The value of them is more than the whole box. If it wasn’t for the fact that the bracelet broke, I would actually still be satisfied with this months box.

 

Birchbox July Review | BEAUTY

This month, the Birchbox arrived later than normal! Since I joined, they have always sent the box in the first week of every month. This time, I was waiting two weeks! Needless to say I was VERY excited when it came through the post. I have also been thinking about cancelling my subscription, just simply because I subscribe to 3 different boxes and I don’t really need to! More on that later. I thought the design of this months box was very cute.

2016-07-09 18.25.41

Onto the contents of the box!

2016-07-09 18.29.58


LOC Millie Ultra Gloss Lip Pencil in Bohemian Rose

RRP £9 (full size)

2016-07-09 18.28.31

All subscribers knew this box would include this lip pencil, designed by Millie Mackintosh herself. I was intrigued to see what the formula would be like and how long lasting it would be. Firstly, I love the packaging. I think the LOC brand looks so expensive (and it really is not) plus the shade that Millie picked is actually really nice. I normally don’t gravitate towards pinks because I am a little darker skinned, so sometimes it washes out my lips. However, I love this product. The formula is creamy and very long lasting. I wore it for work and it stayed put the entire day. It is a little sticky when first applied, but then you can barely feel it. I think I will be investing in some more colours and the matte lip pencils as well!


John Frieda Luxurious Volume 7 Day In Shower Treatment

RRP £9.99 (full size)

2016-07-09 18.27.38

All subscribers were also given a choice of which full size John Frieda product they wanted in their box this month. You could pick the in shower volume treatment, or the Frizz Ease Primer. I already own the Frizz Ease, so I decided to go for the volume treatment. Unfortunately, I did not get very far with trying it out as I could not get the pump to work. I have twisted it in every direction I can think of, but nothing comes out of the pump. The only way I can get any product out of it, is to actually unscrew the cap and turn the product upside down! I will try to get my husband to have a look at it for me, as I may be doing something wrong. Still look forward to trying it out though. It seems pretty easy – shower and condition hair. Then apply 3-4 pumps of the product onto the roots and underside of hair. Wait 3 minutes, then wash out!


Nails Inc.

RRP £15 (sample size)

2016-07-09 18.28.16

I really enjoy getting nail polish in my box, because I love it. Nails Inc are such a good brand and not one I would normally buy, due to how expensive they are. I was a little annoyed at the teeny tiny sample size that was sent this month. I was even more annoyed at the colour. It’s a horrible pale pink, that will 100% look bad on me, as my skin is a little darker and this type of pink does not suit me. The icing on top of the cake was when i tried to open it to try out. I could not get it open. This was different to the John Frieda product as the only way to open it is to unscrew the lids and the lid will not budge. I went onto Birchbox’s Faceboook page and found that some other people had the same issue. I have sent them a message now, to see if I can get another one. Disappointed in this!


Caudalie Micellar Cleansing Water

RRP £15 (travel size)

2016-07-09 18.27.59

In the first Birchbox I received, I was sent a full size Bioderma Micellar Water, which was one of the best things I received from them. I am almost at the end of it now – meaning it has lasted me 5 months – so I was happy to get another brand to try out! I haven’t tried it yet, but the reviews on the brand look really good. If it works, I will probably buy it from the Birchbox shop itself. It’s also a good size to take on holiday.


Elemis Hydra Boost Day Cream

RRP £39 (travel size)

2016-07-09 18.27.48

I knew I was not going to get away with not getting a cream. I have so many samples just sitting around, waiting for me to try out. This will just be added to that box. I currently do not have a good skincare routine, so I need to sort that out before I can try out day creams. You are normally meant to use them after cleansing. I will have to report back on this. The sample size is quite good though, as its small enough to take in a travel bag but big enough to try it out properly!


OVERALL

This box was quite a good mixture. They covered skincare, nails, make-up, hair and face. Obviously I was disappointed with 2 products not opening(!) but I will try and get that all sorted out. I still need to browse through the Birchbox shop and buy something with the points I have accumulated and I also am not sure whether I want to stick with the subscription or not. Having said that, this month I will use every single product, so it isn’t really THAT bad. Next months sneak peek is a Birch BAG which seems interesting!

 

June Favourites! | FAVOURITES

I feel like I haven’t blogged in ages! Last month was absolutely hectic and I haven’t had any time until now to post my June favourites, even though we are in July now! Anyway, this is what I have loved in the month of June.

BABY Animals

This month E has been into all types of animals. She is getting older and at 20 months, she is noticing animals. We have 2 cats at home and she absolutely loves them. She will follow them around, play with them and just love them. I think it’s so cute and even though my cats are both adult cats now, they still don’t mind playing with her. I have noticed it more this month, but she is also really into dogs! Every time we go to a friends house and they have a dog, you can see her eyes light up. I love the fact that she is into animals because as a child, I never had a pet. I didn’t understand the love for an animal and I am happy that she will.


BOOKS Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

This book has been made into a film this month, but for some reason, I had just not even read the book ( I 100% want to see the film!) My sister purchased it and was so emotional after reading it, that I had to read it myself. Me Before You is about a young woman who loses her job and doesn’t know what to do with her life. She ends up taking the only available job as a carer for a man who was left severely disabled after a motorcycle accident. This story as about their lives and how they combine. It is beautiful. I cannot describe it, in any other way. Regarding the story line, I have read many books with the same one. For me though, this book stood out. It is written beautifully. Every single character is likeable. I don’t really know who I would pick as a favourite. I felt sorry for Will (the disabled man) because of his situation, but I also loved Thomas (the main characters baby nephew!) If you haven’t read it already, I would totally recommend it. It is a perfect book.

Me-Before-You


TV

Big Brother 2016

Big Brother is finally back and I am loving it. I watched Big Brother back when Davina was the  presenter but I only watched the launch night and the eviction shows. After I got married, my husband was a huge fan, so I would watch it with him and now I love it. If you have never heard of it, Big Brother is a reality TV show, where 12 people are thrown into a house together with no communication from the outside world. When it first started, it was a social experiment and has now just turned into entertainment. I think I featured the Celebrity version in a favourites post a few months ago. This time round, it’s just normal people. I just love the personalities and the drama.

Devious Maids

I just started watching this show and I am in love already. My little sister kept telling me to watch it but for some reason I kept putting it off. (Like I did with Suits, Switched At Birth, Once Upon A Time – I should really listen to my sister) I was looking for something to watch the other week and came across Devious Maids, on Sky Box Sets. Since I have all the episodes, I thought, why not! I loved it from the first five minutes. Devious Maids is about 5 maids who look/clean after rich families. The show follows the main 4 maids after the 5th one is murdered. The maids are all latina, which is pretty cool. Eva Longoria produced the show and you can tell, because it is so much like Desperate Housewives. She has even used some of the same actors! Even so, I like the story it tells. The maids are hilarious and each have their own issues. There is a mother and daughter – the daughter Valentina, is in love with her employers son and the mother, Zoila, is trying to protect her. Then you have Rosie, who is a maid for a famous couple and she is trying to bring her son to America. Next is Carmen, a wannabe singer, who is a maid for a famous singer and is trying to get him to listen to her music. Finally, Marisol, who is looking after 2 families  and doesn’t seem like she is actually a maid…

It’s awesome, so watch it!

CLOTHING Pyjamas

I am currently typing up this post in my PJ’s. They have become my best friend during this month. As I am on holiday from work for most of the month, I tend to not bother with getting changed. I just keep changing into different PJ’s but not in day clothes. They are just so comfortable and I own so many pairs. I actually think that I have a bit of an obsession with owning different types of PJ’s! At the moment, my favourite is probably the Harry Potter ones. By the way, I get all of my pyjamas at Primark, because that shop is so cheap and so awesome for PJ’s!


APP Cooking Tale

I first started playing this game on Facebook. It is another cooking game where you have to serve different dishes and meet different goals every level. I loved it but it was hard to play on my laptop – too slow and I would just get annoyed. This month I found it in the Play Store and was overjoyed. I absolutely love it. I pretty much play it at least a few times a day and love the challenges. Some levels are easy but honestly, most of the levels are ridiculously hard to play. It is free and well worth getting!

MUSICGnash ft Olivia O’Brien – I hate you, I love you

I haven’t listened to a lot of music this month, but this particular song does stand out. At first, I didn’t like it because I thought the lyrics were weird. Then, I actually listened to it properly and the lyrics are what makes this song so good! It is such a realistic thing that they are talking about and the melody is really good. I have never heard any other song from both artists, so it is good to find something new.
