Monday, 10 November 2014


1. Spend copious amounts of time with your friends and family - especially your parents, you only get one set of those so appreciate them while you have the time to.

2. Take road trips with friends.

3. Learn to cook well.

4. Watch what you want to watch, when you want to watch it, how you want to watch it. No more compromising and having to watch the football and no more remote control hog. It's all yours baby!

5. Travel solo and go on a trip by yourself!

6. Give Internet dating a try.

7. Go on a blind date.

8. Go on a date with a younger man.

9. Go on a date with an older man.

10. Buy yourself flowers - treat yourself - they will look just as beautiful!

11. Splurge on yourself regularly, be it a new dress, some new heels or a super hot new lipstick.

12. Go on a day date; I'm talking a trip to the zoo, kayaking, or even just a walk in the park. A man who will meet you during daylight has way more potential.

13. Figure out what it is YOU really want. Do you want to travel the world? Do you want to be a career girl? Do you want a mortgage? Do you want marriage and kids? Do you want all of those things? Figure out which way you wish to do it and do it... Life is too short to wait around girl!

14. Do your own DIY. Put up your own shelves, paint your own walls. Prove to yourself that you DON'T need a man.

15. Get some new hobbies; you owe it to yourself to know exactly what it is you enjoy doing and then you can find someone who shares those interests.

16. Get healthy and into shape. This body is all yours baby, make it worthy of the soul inside it.

17. Snog a stranger - or two.

18. Be SPONTANEOUS - Freedom is your birthright! 

19. Pack up and move someplace new, what's stopping you?! 

20. Let your friends set you up (and keep an open mind about it!)

21. Have a girls night in at least once a month.

22. Be bold - be it wearing something totally outrageous or approaching that guy you think is good looking instead of waiting for him to approach you!

23. Go speed dating.

24. Make a list of all your faults and work on them - don't let this consume you though. You are beautiful, intelligent and wonderful and the fact you can accept you're not perfect is a beautiful trait in itself.

25. Revamp your wardrobe and experiment with new clothes. Hell there's no more thinking 'I wonder if so and so would like this... I wonder if he will think I look cute in this?' Buy clothes because YOU like them and YOU feel good about yourself in them. You'll develop your true sense of style and it will be fabulous!

26. Know your body. That way things will be even better when you meet someone you actually like. 

27. Don't be afraid to talk about sex baby. Be honest about what you like and learn new skills. (Bit X rated for my blog but that is as rude as it gets I swear! Te lo juro. Haha) 

28. Save money.

29. Take more risks.

30. Work out who your real friends are.

The Body Shop's Rainforest Moisture Shampoo(*): I love, love, love this shampoo, to infinity and beyond. It is free from parabens, silicones, sulphates and colourants which is a dream when you take into consideration how much junk most shampoos have in them. On top of being free from nastiness, it also smells gorgeous and a little goes a long way. It leaves my hair feeling clean and healthy and that is exactly what one needs from a shampoo. The shampoo from the rainforest range I use is 'moisture' but there are different types to chose from depending on your hair type. So, let me run you through all the types - there is moisture for dry/damaged hair, shine for normal to dry hair, balance for oily hair, volumising for fine hair and finally, radiance for coloured hair. They all contain community fair trade sugarcane from Paraguay.

Crystal spring natural deodorant (Salt of the Earth): I have been using this bad boy for a few months now and I love it. It doesn't contain aluminium which was a main worry for me when using deodorant. it's also free from fragrance, propellants, parabens and alcohol. I know its weird but I've also become rather attached to the fact you have to wet it to use it too.

Waitrose Pure Face Polish: On the waitrose website they have stated that it is natural care for sensitive skin, it is fragrance free and it is 100% naturally derived ingredients. What attracted me to it even more was that it only has six ingredients in, all of which were desirable nice ones like almond oil and Shea butter. On top of the fact it seemed so perfect formula-wise; it was only £2.99! So I snapped it up in my last food shop. I have been really enjoying using it. It leaves a bit of oil on afterwards as Shea butter products tend to but I like that as I find it extra moisturising!

The Body Shop's Aloe soothing night cream: I have been using this bad boy since I started working for the body shop a year ago. Its fragrance, colour and alcohol free and it doesn't contain any preservatives. I actually use this one day and night because I find it does absolute wonders for my skin! I want to use this forever and ever as it's super luxurious and at a fair price I think.   

Aloe Dent Whitening Toothpaste: Most Aloe Vera products designed for internal use disgust me, but this tooth paste is amazing. The fact I found a fluoride free toothpaste with whitening properties made me very happy and I was even happier when I initially got it home and discovered that it tasted just the same as my old minty toothpastes! Love this toothpaste! Another life long friend I think.

I have an abundance of non-beauty faves this month. I have been a total TV head recently, my favourite programs have been Our Girl on BBC, Bad bridesmaids on ITV, TOWIE and MIC are also a guilty pleasures of mine and I am glad they are back on at the same time to entertain me for three out of seven of these chilly autumn evenings. Music wise I have become a bit obsessed with Ben Howard's song 'Old Pine' and Jamelia's music, in particular 'No More' and 'Thank you' - the lyrics are as if I had written them for how I have been feeling this month and quite frankly Jamelia is one foxy, inspirational young women! As a fashion fave I have been loving my new bag from Zara, it's beaut. A food favourite has been cherry bakewells as my lovely uncle brought them round twice to cheer me up from this absolute pig of a month I have had to endure.
