5 Things We Avoid Saying….but really should.

12 Nov

zipped lips

‘Keep it zipped and no one gets hurt’?….

1. Your breath/body smells. Who wants to tell someone that a part of them stinks? Awkward as anything but everyone they meet will be grateful.

2. I really didn’t like that meal you cooked. It’s so much better to tell them now before they get excited and make it for next big dinner parties main dish. To allow them to bestow that plate on anybody else is wickedness. And you know it….

3. You can’t sing. A big ouch, especially if they enjoy it and do it publicly. However, it will stop them being that person who gets laughed at on at the X Factor auditions. Friendship can be about saving people from themselves and embarrassing Youtube legacies.

4. We’ve grown apart, and this friendship isn’t good for me. Some people are in our past for a reason. There are some friendships too heavy with baggage to drag into our future. You are chosen to progress, live and learn. I say ‘choose’ because we have it in our power to change our outlook and consequentially the majority of our outcomes. Friend A does not want to progress, live right or even learn from past mistakes. Then has the cheek to try and plunge you into these mistakes with her? Friend B wants to love you and not wife you and continue to flash call you and finish YOUR contract minutes? (cheap skate). Friend C treats you like rubbish and abuses your friendship by lying but is sweet and coy when they need a helping hand. Since when did you become a yo-yo? You are under no stringed obligation to return to the scene of the pain. Be honest with yourself, it’s hurting like it’s burning. Drop it’s hot!

5. I love you. Yes, she’s the girl in and of your dreams and there is probably a reason why. Ha! She may say yes or no, but at least you tried. This isn’t Hollywood. If she marries someone else and you still continue to pursue her, you aren’t going to passionately kiss in the rain. Some one is gonna get punched in the face. Take the tip.

PS: What if….like seriously, what IF she says yes? ;-)……cue orchestra……

FYI: I’m really enjoying these posts and judging by the stats so are you! If you can think of anything you hate to say, comment in box below!

Clicks I ♡

11 Nov

Just some things I think are worth a click on this great thing we call the internet! I hope that you like them too……

1. John Lewis has done it again. Those people specialise in creating Christmas adverts that pull at our heart strings. Lilly Allen’s rendition of Keane’s ‘Somewhere Only We Know’ is just perfection.

2. The gorgeous Tanya Burr’s Youtube channel. No half hearted videos here and with a great personality to match!

3. This song by Hillsong, King of Heaven‘. Such beauty!

4. All the 3 for 2 offers on the Boots website! Are they supposed to be persuading us to buy for other people?

5. Kristabel Plummer has been blogging since 2008. She is what I like to call a seasoned blogger. blogging before it became popular with stunning photography and quality posts worth reading. Check her out here.

6. This dress is cute verging on hotter than sliced bread’s mother and then some.

7. Heather Lindsey is a great example of a woman using her gifts and social media to inspire a new generation of women. This book please.

5 Things Tuesday: Why Can’t Men…

23 Jul

men cartoon

1. Read our minds! It’s completely natural for us to assume they have telepahic powers? One eyebrow means I’m upset, not finishing the chocolate means yesterday’s argument is still on. Right? ha!

2. Why can’t the majority of men multi-task? Please help me to do ‘a’, please help me do ‘b’. You relax because he kindly did ‘b’, but where is ‘a’? Side eye.

3. Why can’t men decide? From Mr Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet to Ross and Rachel. For all the many women I meet waiting for you guys to make up your minds, like seriously….whats up?

4. Why can’t some men get it into their heads that a couple of characteristics don’t define their masculinity. What’s with the hands ‘checking’ down there hasn’t disappeared? All  the ‘no homo’ assurances after every emotional display and pretending to be good at diy. Drop the screwdriver and call the plumber!

5. Why can’t men not have a but? He’s hot but he still clings to mummy. He has such a great personality but he’s a secret hoarder. He’s great with kids but his facebook is full of pictures of him in the middle of a bush, drunk with a traffic cone on his head. Kind of eliminates the responsible element. And the cycle goes again…..

If you like this…share it 🙂

5 Things Tuesday: The Problem with Instagram…

25 Jun

Greetings from New York, wonderful lovelies! Thank you for being so loyal and supportive. I’m deep in the middle of helping to sort out yet another wedding. It is definitely becoming a trend! New York State is wonderful. I can’t wait to get to the city! Pictures and details will be shared shortly as always.

instagram

1. Instagammers always think what they are taking a picture of is more important than it actually is. Who cares what faces your cat is pulling this morning? Sometimes it’s cute, sometimes it’s just a cat’s face. I don’t even know know whether I’m a cat or a dog person but one thing is true. I’m not always bothered.

2. Instagrammers are sly show offs. Every success is documented, yet half of them don’t even have a printed family photo album. Loose their passwords and their life just didn’t happen.

3. Instagrammers lie! Girl, I saw you yesterday!! We all know that hot hair pic should really be a throwback thursday picture! That #nomakeup, I can see the eyeliner!

4. Instagrammers have angel boyfriends. Who buy them flowers all the time and leave them picture perfect neat notes. By the way, what is it with all the ‘he bought me this and that’ #keeper posts! When was the last time you worked hard and bought yourself a diamond? silly silly…

5. Instagrammers make danger look silly. Taking pictures in the driving seat and on the edge of mountains. Does your mum know you are doing this? Someone call 999….NOW!

And by the way…..I’m guilty too! 😉

5 Things Tuesday: 5 things your date will never tell you.

11 Jun

Yes it’s super duper late in England right now, but it had to be done!!! For my regular followers you must be thinking, WHERE IN THE WORLD HAVE YOU BEEN!!?? Yes I am indeed alive, but have been away from the blog :-(. It can be difficult juggling so many commitments. However, If you follow me on instagram there has been a photo here and there.

There is a reason I could not wait to post until tommorow. I am starting a new segment on the blog. Give a nice warm welcome to ‘5 Things Tuesday’. I will share 5 random things and well, that’s pretty much it ha! Could be serious, could be kind of funny or just plain random.

I am dedicating this post to a wonderful lady who sent me the most wonderful message. JEAN ALABA? You there? Yes, you! Wonderful readers like you are the reason I do what I do :-). I hope this makes you feel half as special you made me.

5 things your date will never tell you

1.The outfit she said she just threw together, it took her two weeks to find shoes that shade of green.

2.  She had to remind herself by post it note to shave her legs, but only bottom half. There was no time to shave unseen areas.

3.She’s already picked out a wedding theme. Reminded herself that she shouldn’t do it so early but picked out children’s names instead.

4.Climbing Everest is hard. But not harder than avoiding the big delicious but messy meal she really wants to eat. The chicken salad is killing her, and by the way…where’s the rest of it?

5.Her heels are killing her, and you being a gentleman and dropping her home is great and all. Any chance you won’t see if she changes into her flats? No….ok…dying one step at a time….
