New years resolutions

Hello my loves,

I hope you are well and had a great Christmas

So as you will know if you follow me on twitter and have followed my blog for a long time, I have had a seriously negative year. Everything that could go wrong actually has, but, in all honesty, some good things have come out of this year I've met some lovely people, I made up with a friend who I didn't think I would and I've had a few nice dates. I've done so many positive things, like losing weight although, that was due to stress. I'm back at college and although I'm not ready for a new boyfriend I am ready to date and have some fun. 

In the new year I'm going to be so positive and I'm going to get good things! So long ramble over let's get to the reason in here doing this post!

  • Get a new job. Save money, get myself a working holiday visa to Canada or do the internship in America.
  • Stop saying I'm going to do something and then not do it!
  • Although we all say we are going to lose weight after new years I actually lost three stone this year, I want to carry on and lose the last bit of weight.
  • Stop letting things get to me so much! Good things ARE coming my wa.
  • I am going to meet up with all the new lovely friends I have made on twitter.
  • I need to let things go, I hold onto too much grudges and once someone has pissed me off I stay angry for the longest time.
  • I need to exercise more.
  • I want to try and new and healthy things recipes and teach myself to be a better cook.
  • I want to give my blog more love and try out more products.
  • I don't want a boyfriend but if one comes my way I am not going to turn it down.
  • In September I want to do a barbering course.
  • I've lost a lot of friends through not having time for them because I got married and we moved on, I'd like to mend these friendships
  • I want to move, Ideally I'd love to move somewhere closer to my friend.
  • If I don't get to move I would like a housemate to move in.
  • I want to paint my house because I am sick of the half painted walls that my ex never helped me to paint.
  • I want to sit and read a new book every week.
  • I want to go on more dates, there's lots of beautiful men out there and I want to meet as many of them as I can. Just because I have been burnt in the past doesn't mean that the one is going to hurt me.
  • I am going to be the person I haven't been able to be because of my ex.
  • I want to let go of negativity, if you are always feeling negative then you are giving out negative vibes and there for you're asking for bad things to happen.
  • I am going to sell off the rest of my clothes that don't fit and buy a brand new wardrobe of things that do fit.
  • I want to make my own hairstyles and try a new hairstyle every time I go out.
  • I'm going to grow my hair really long because I am craving fishtail plaits.
Wow, that's actually a ton of things. I've still got ideas going through my head so I will keep adding to these but yeah, those are the things that I want the most from my life.

Happy new year my cupcakes and I will be back in the New Year fresh and feeling positive. Here's to a happy new year :-)

Much love

Spreading the Christmas cheer

Hello my little Christmas Lovelies :-)

I hope you''re all well.

I don't actually have anything specific to talk about today I just wanted to make a little post to say thank you to my lovely subbies, I'm up to 70 now and that's massive for me. I'm so out of practice with Blogging now it's been a while but I do plan to come back fresh with some new products in the new year. I've just got no enthusiasm for this year anymore, It's been a tough tough year and I'm not sad to say I cannot wait until January. I'm ready for a brand new chapter to start.

So what is everyone doing for Christmas? Do you know what you're getting? I haven't a clue what I am getting but I'm going to my mum's boyfriends mum's for Christmas. I'm not excited about it this year. 

I know I've had a terrible year but I've also had some great things happen. I've lost three stone and am now back into a size 12. I've met some super lovely people and I'm back at college doing something I really enjoy. I'm happier now than I was this time last year.

I'm excited to see what 2012 brings, I'm planning to go on to do Barbering at college after this year, I still have to do another year of my normal hairdressing but I'm so excited for everything. 

Anyways I'm sorry about the pretty pointless Blogpost I guess I just wanted to come and say hi and wish you all a super happy Christmas. I hope you all get everything you've ever wanted and eat lots of great food and drink (do it responsibly lol) lots. Thank you to everyone who has been there for me this year I'm so grateful for everything you have done for me.

All my love

30 Day Blog Challege

Day 12 – A photograph of the town you live in.

Hi guys,
I don't actually have any pictures of the town I live so I used some from google images.

I live in Sheffield, South Yorkshire. Yes I am Yorkshire lass but I don't speak like one unless I am around really common people. I've lived here all of my life and although I am proud to be a Northerner (it is true about us being a friendly bunch) I'm keen to leave the place lol. Sheffield is home to the Steelworks, it's a green city and one of the biggest cities in the country. A lot of very awesome people were born in Sheffield (just to pick a few) Sean Bean, Joe Cocker, Jessica Ennis, Def Leppard and many many others.

This place is called The Peace Gardens, it's such a nice place to go and sit in the summer. Also in winter the council put an outdoor skating rink here.

My favourite place IN THE WORLD, ha ha. Fancie Cupcakes, if you follow me on Twitter, I am sure you will have seen me rambling on about how much I love Fancie.

And lastly, this is the college where I am studying Hairdressing.

Peace and Love

A very merry Christmas

 Hello my loves,

I cannot honestly believe that in 9 days it will be Christmas, seriously where did this year go? I have to say I am so ready for the year to end. It's been a long roller coaster of a bugger. So I was on YouTube and saw this tag by Mischievous and I thought I would do it because I wanted a Christmassy post so here goes.

1. Favorite Christmas Movie?
For the past four Christmases it became a bit of tradition that we would watch a Muppets Christmas Carol, I have to say it really is my favourite. I think it's such a fun movie because it has Miss Piggy and well, she's hella fun right?

2. Are you on the Naughty list or the Nice list?
Well I think I am on both, I'm a naughty but nice girl. Lol. I've had a real humdinger of a year and I do think that I deserve a nice time with lots of treats.

3. Show us an embarrassing Christmas Card photo!
I have never done this, this is an American thing to do. I don't send Christmas cards out anymore, I just think it's a waste of ink and paper.

4. Have you ever had a White Christmas?
When I was about 9 we did have one and last year we had one. I love white Christmases, I think they're very romantic.

5. Where do you usually spend your holiday?
I used to spend it with my husbands family but this year I'll be spending it at my mum's boyfriends mum's house.

6.Play or Sing your favorite Christmas Song!
Christmas songs grate on me, I do like Mariah Carey's "All I want for Christmas" though.

7. Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?

8. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer?
I could google it but that would be cheating wouldn't it? I don't actually know them, I used to know them all.

9. What holiday tradition are you looking forward to most this year?
Just getting drunk and eating a ton of food :-)

10. Is your Christmas tree real or fake?
Ok, don't shout, but I don't have a tree up this year. Being the first one on my own I'm not really feeling it, next year I will be though.

11. Hands down, what's your all-time favorite holiday food and holiday sweet treat?
I love lots of stuffing, sage and onion stuffing is one thing I could eat all the time. My favourite sweet treat is Yule log YUMMMM oh buddy that stuff is amazing.

12. Be Honest: do you like giving gifts or receiving gifts better?
I like to give gifts, I don't expect anything this year. Obviously likes receiving gifts but I don't think it's right to expect them.

13. Show us your tackiest Christmas attire (ex: Ugly Sweater)
Hand on heart I actually don't have anything. I am too school for cool and just don't wear them.

14. What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?
I would love to go to NYC for New Years. I'd love to go ice skating where they have that big rink and watch the ball drop in Times Square.

15. Does your family have a special holiday recipe you like to help make?

16. Are you a pro-present wrapper, or do you fail miserably? 
I am actually pretty decent at wrapping presents, I've had lots of practice lol.

17. Most memorable Holiday moment?
A few years ago I got something for my mum's boyfriend and I put it in a massive box and had smaller boxes to reveal this really cool gift. His face when he saw the big present was a picture and when he saw the end thing he looked out of breath haha.

18. What made you realize the truth about Santa?
I don't actually remember, I wish I could go back to being that innocent and believing in Santa because everything was just perfect back then.

19. Do you make New Years Resolutions? Do you stick to them?
I always say I'm going to lose weight and don't but this year I actually did. I've lost 3 stone whoop.

20. What makes the Holidays special for you?
It used to be exchanging gifts with my ex and being so in love but now I'm kind of over it. I'm sure I'll be like that again but for now I'm a bit of a Grinch.

I hope you all have a seriously wonderful Christmas and get everything you want, I look forward to seeing lots of Christmas haul posts and videos.

Much Love

Hello my loves,

How are we all? Long time no post. Have you all done your Christmas shopping? I still haven't done mine but thankfully I don't really have to buy many this year.

So where have I been? I've been slacking on posts recently, I've been busy with college I've had exams and practical assessments as well as writing assignments. I am officially on Christmas break now, I've managed to get my assignments done so I have just under a month off which is going to be great. I am hosting a blogsale if you are interested you can go grab a bargain here

Last weekend I fell and hurt my ankle and when went to the doctors he told me I'd torn a ligament (ouch) this is no good thing when you have to stand on your feet all day when you are training to become an hairdresser, and my tutor is no pushover "hairdressers do not sit down" she says lol. That is healing nicely, the bruises scare me but I always do bruise like a peach. I know sitting on my fat ass would mean I could surely blog but I've also been really unwell. I've got flu and I've barely done anything, I went to get cough medicine yesterday because I have a really chesty cough which is agony. All of my joints hurt and I've just been feeling so down because all I do is blow my nose and cough my guts up. I'm just not having the greatest time of it. 

I've not even been reading blogs, I've just taken a complete break which isn't like me at all. Now that I am on holiday I am hopefully going to start blogging again next week

So that is where I have been, if you missed me at all lol.

I hope you have a great weekend and I'll see you next week with a brand new post :-) 

Lots of Christmas hugs and love
