Giggling Squid

Yesterday evening I went for a lovely dinner at the Giggling Squid in Marlow. My bestfriend always told me how good the food was here and I'd never had Thai food before so I was so excited to go.

A mother's love..

So it's Mother's Day here in the UK and I wanted to dedicate this post to my mum. 

My mum has been my hero for as long as I can remember. It was just a few years ago when I realized just how amazing my mum is, when you're young, you tend to take things for granted and your mother is one of them. The older I get, the more I see just how powerful a mother's love is. This woman has gone through hell and back and she's still standing.. she is the most selfless person I know and when she is suffering, she still puts her children first. I've never know anyone with such a pure, genuine, selfless love and if I become just half of the woman she is, I'll be okay with that. 

Growing up I always suffered with confidence, my identity and self love but when I look back at that time, it was always my mother who instilled nothing but words of affirmation to me and always told me that I am beautiful just the way I am. If it wasn't for her continuous encouragement, her strength and unconditional love, I don't know where I'd be today. I know we all say this about our mother's but they deserve the world. They sacrifice so much to give us the life we have today and I salute all single mother's out there who have fought to give their children the best life they can. I respect all mother's in general and I can't wait to show my future children just what a mother's love is like.

A weekend in Manchester..

Over the weekend, me and my boyfriend went up to Manchester to celebrate our 6 year anniversary.. I know right, 6 years! I've been so blessed to have such a wonderful person in my life. We've never really got the chance to go away on holidays or weekends away so it was very exciting for us to finally get to go away together for more than just one night!

Staying positive in difficult times..

One of the hardest things to do in life is to remain positive in difficult situations. When we receive bad news our first reaction is to freak out and assume the worst! It's normal to do this but also such a bad habit. Over time, I've actually become a lot better with this myself and I just want to share a few tips that have helped me!

And just like that, another year is coming to an end. I'll never get used to how quick times goes, it's scary when you think about it. I write these posts at the end of the year so that I can reflect on what I've learnt. 2017 was a very.. interesting year, that's the first word that comes to mind when I think of what this year was like.

I'll be honest as I can be.. this year was not a good year for so many reasons. There are only 2 things that stand out to me that were amazing moments and great achievements for me but I'll share that in a moment. The reason I say that this year was not good, is due to some family issues that went on which I can't get into but it effected so much. I don't want to put a negative downer on this post but I just want to be real, it's easy to say that overall things were fine but the truth is they weren't. 

I guess what comes with another year, comes more lessons and blessings. 

I'll get into more of the positive things about this year though. One of the biggest achievements from this year was graduating. I've written quite a bit about my university experience, it wasn't an easy experience at all and at one point.. well, more than one point, I didn't think I'd actually get to the end for so many reasons. For example, I had to retake one of my exams and an assignment so I didn't get to graduate with the rest of my class but I got there in the end. It was such an emotional day but so rewarding, it was good to know that all that hard work paid off.

Another big thing that happened for me this year was getting a full time job! I was so blessed to get this job, it all happened quite quickly and I wasn't expecting to get into full time employment so soon after finishing my degree. I've been working in Recruitment since July and honestly, it's been such a good experience. I work with such great people and feel so fortunate to actually enjoy what I do too lol. I never thought of getting into Recruitment as a career but I'm excited to see where it takes me.


My friend has inspired me to do something in the New Year. We've set ourselves 12 things to do in the 12 months of 2018, for example going to a rooftop cinema in August or going to a food festival in July. We also made a list on what what we'd like to achieve, 12 personal goals! I think this is such a good way to spread out what you'd want to get done during each month of the year and I advise everyone to make their own little list.

I'm wishing everyone a very positive, prosperous, all round great year!

I can't tell you how much I love Winter. As much as autumn is my absolute favourite season, Winter comes second to that.

Current beauty favourites!

It's been a while since my last beauty favourites post and although the last one was more make up based, I really wanted to share some skin/body care products.
