Where'd you go?!

Hello Lovelies!

Hello? Is anybody there? I know, i know, i've been gone for a while! But, i have exciting news (exciting for me at least, you might find it exciting too!) 

I have a job (!!!!!!) finally! This is a big thing for me, i've been taking care of my 6 younger brothers and younger sister for the past year now since my mum walked out and i've never had time for myself, and all my friends were all off to university and it made me unhappy, i wasn't doing anything with my life, i wasn't going anywhere so i'm glad that i finally am! 

Another thing, i'm going to see Jessie J!! On the 25th of this month, i will be at the capital fm arena in Nottingham, England seeing Jessie J! I'm almost certain there will be a blog post to follow!

I'm sorry i've been missing but i'm hoping to get back into the swing of things! Look out for exciting (hopefully) new blog posts, but until then... goodbye my loves!

Weight means nothing.

I saw this on twitter today and it made me stop and think, do people actually look up to others depending on their size? I know for one that i don't but i wonder if anyone else does? Just using this an example, i look up to both Zoe and Louise (sprinkle of glitter). Zoe because she's overcome so much like dealing with her anxiety and she's just a lovely person and Louise because she's the mother i aspire to be like. I don't look up to Zoe because shes a slimmer woman and i don't look up to Louise because shes a curvier woman. They're both just bloody beautiful and i want to meet them both! (inner fan-girl came out for a second their)

I absolutely love what Louise said though, "both just as special." Think about that for a second, like twins, one may be super girly and the other may be super into football, but their both just as special. 

I know this is short and a bit of a rant (kind of?) but i wanted to share my opinion on this! Every single one of you is special whether you're a size 6 or size 26, whether you have blonde hair or ginger hair, or anything. You're all beautiful and i love you!

And on that note, i'm out haha, have a good weekend!

ps. i really hope i didn't offend anybody with this, i didn't intend to if i did.

You've been nominated for a Liebster award!!

So Claire from clunaire.com very kindly nominated me for a Liebster award! What is  a Liebster award you ask? Well, i asked myself the same thing so i googled it and this is what it said "The Liebster Award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. So, what is a Liebster?  The meaning: Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. Isn't that sweet? Blogging is about building a community and it's a great way to connect with other bloggers and help spread the word about newer bloggers/blogs." So i thought that was extremely lovely!

  3. What's your favourite song of all time? Probably What If by Kate Winslet. It changes a lot though.
  4. What's the best bit of advice you've ever received? Don't let anyone else's opinion influence your own.

My Chaise Longue wishlist.

Hello lovelies.

Recently, i was informed about this lovely website called www.chaiselongue.co.uk/ that sell some of the most beautiful pieces of furniture i have ever laid my eyes upon. This blog post was supposed to have been written by 9pm and it's now nearly 11pm and i've only just started writing it, i've been fascinated by the beauty of it all. By the way, this is the interior decorator side of me coming out. (I'm not actually an interior decorator, i would love to be though!) Since i was so fascinated by the beauty of it all, i thought i would share some of my favourite pieces with all of you!

As you can tell, my favourite pieces were the chateau pieces. I love the simple chic look and i think these pieces are just that! I was inspired by the Edwardian (i think it's that at least) era, it's all beautiful and classic!

This furniture would create the most beautiful and calm bedroom ever. Also, you've probably noticed something that doesn't quite look right with all the other things, and that's the explorer club chair. I absolutely love this chair so much and it would look perfect in a library or in a little book nook! Infact, i would totally have the explorer chair in my bedroom with all the other pieces, i think it would add something a bit different to a room!

All the pieces you can see above you can find by clicking the following links, Baroque Period Bed, Chateau 7 Drawer Chest, Chateau Chaise Lounge, Chateau Gaston Oval Chair, Explorer Club Chair. And again, everything mentioned above is from Chaise Longue Boutique.

Thankyou, for taking the time to read this dears, go check the website and tell me your favourite piece/pieces of furniture.
