LIFESTYLE | March Highlights …

March has whizzed past me like Zola Budd. With diarrhoea. On her way to the toilet.

That’s pretty bloody fast .

Please slow down 2019 we will be counting down to Christmas before we all know it !

Despite it flying by it has been a really good month for me and here’s why …

EVENTS:

LIFE | Time …

Time …

Time flies like an arrow, fruit flies like a banana‘ – Anthony G Oettinger

I finally listened to the Rocky Horror Picture Show soundtrack yesterday. It has only taken me 19 months. It was one of Mum and I favourite film. I couldn’t and more importantly didn’t want to listen to it without her by my side.

When I lived at home and It was just the two of us Mum and I would get supplies [ mainly chocolate ] , sit down or rather jump around, totally immersing ourselves in the film and it’s characters. We would replay the elevator scene over and over … the one where we are first introduced to Frank N Furter. Its simply amazing. Tim Curry is the only bloke I’ve officially ever found attractive in a corset, 6 inch heels and bright red lipstick

LIFE | WUKA … pants with purpose

When I mention period pants … you probably like me think of your selection of ‘past their best knickers‘ that you save souly for wearing during your period. If you have an ‘accident’ it’ll not matter too much … they are pretty manky already.

Today I’m going to introduce you to WUKA period wear, which stands for Wake Up Kick Ass . Founded by environmental scientist Ruby Raut this underwear replaces the need for sanitary towels and tampons. It is eco-friendly which in this day and age can never be a bad thing.

BUT firstly I guess you’ll need to know about my current period status. Let’s just say they are sent from hell. I’m so heavy it is ridiculous … I go through 2 boxes of Super Plus Tampons every period and at the moment they are only about 14 days apart. Bloody Peri-Menopause ! I generally have to get up once or twice in the night to change . It’s no wonder I look so pale all the time; I’m knackered and have no blood in my body.

I HOPE …

I hope you live everyday with the same gusto and hope in your heart as you do today – the dawning of a new year.

I hope you know you are loved unconditionally and that love lives on even when the person doesn’t. Look for signs … they are always there

I hope you lead your best life despite those that doubt and question your motives.

I hope you prove them all wrong

I hope you see the good in the everyday, appreciate the little insignificant things. Smile & give compliments freely. Never underestimate the power of both

I hope you never tire of a beautiful sunset or the smell of fresh coffee

I hope somebody sees your beauty shining through even on the days when you are feeling ugly , jaded and vulnerable.

I hope you make mistakes, lots of them. It’s the only way to grow

I hope you have the strength to carry on when all you really want to do is give up.

I hope you realise that there is only one you in the whole universe and that in my books makes you pretty darn special.

I hope you enjoy being YOU 💗

Happy New Year
