Safe to say I am really getting in the festive mood now! All presents wrapped under the tree, christmas songs playing and baileys at the ready! I have decided to write a christmas related blog, just because well I’ve been boring and havent till now! Also, I have brought several christmassy things today thats helping me get in the mood! Here they are:
- Orange truffle baileys ❤ omg I am so excited to try this, but making a rule not to open it till christmas day! Has anyone else tried this?
- Fudge hot chocolate! Didnt try this till today and I regret I left it so long! will have to wait till next year now. Boo!
- Gingerbread! Was really happy as I got a free gingerbread kit from starbucks today. (love freebies). So when I got home I decorated it, then ate it. It was yummy!
- Liqueur chocolates! Love these, although wasnt keen on the cherry ones, but the rest were really nice!
- Quality streets! Feel quite guilty the fact I opened these today but oh well! pink ones being my favourite!
Thought I would post this, as I feel it is really important to cherish each day even just the little things that made you feel happy in the moment.
What things are making you feel festive at the moment? Let me know would love to hear them.
Take care, and stay festive!
P.S. I give you permission to laugh at my gingerbread man.
Hey I’m back 🙂
Wow what a busy day I have had today! But a very productive one at least 🙂 So basically every Monday and Friday, I have university. A few weeks ago, I was set a new assignment all about safeguarding children. I have been procrastinating for a while now and just kept avoiding it, and thought the day was today to finally start it! As I know it is a challenging assignment, I didn’t want to start it!
However, today I realised that I will feel much better once starting as then its a weight off my shoulder a bit, and personally feel like making a start on assignments is the hardest bit of the assignment journey as you need to find the correct motivation and determination to get going.
I stayed in the library till 5pm today which I am quite proud of. I am a morning riser, opposed to a night owl and can work much better in the mornings so 5pm is a good time to finish for me. I really did just want to keep going at it and progress on it further, but knew I couldn’t physically write anymore. I eventually got to the point where I didn’t even know what I was writing! On the way back home, I was feeling quite frustrated at the fact I just want it done and out of the way.
Basically, what I am trying to say is you can’t physically get a big task done in a day, and there is no point feeling frustrated about it. It is likely that if you did it all in one day, it would just be rushed and not to a good standard. Instead, take small and manageable chunks each day. I would much rather that and get a good grade and I’m sure you would too! Next time, instead of feeling frustrated I didn’t get it done I will think of it this way instead and feel proud of myself for the small, but counted achievement.No matter how little the task, its still progress. As the saying goes, Rome wasn’t built in a day!
So yeah fingers crossed I get a good grade after this!
Is anyone else feeling in the same shoes as me at the moment or can think of an experience where they have in the past? Will be great to hear of your experiences with this. Will also reassure me that it’s not just me lol!
Thanks for reading, and hope you can get some sort of positive outlook on approaching daily tasks now 🙂
So was just doing my evening ritual of Facebook scrolling, and omg how cute is that new BBC Christmas advert/film?! I am not going to say what its about as I will spoil it for you. However, it is a must watch as personally I think its so sweet and inspirational regarding where your priorities should lie in life.
I love this advert for several reasons, the main one being it shows the negative impact of always putting work first before your family. Of course work is important and does have to take priority sometimes, but finding a work and home life balance is really important. In reality, I feel this is something that a lot of families struggle with as society is difficult financially, and unfortunately need to work to pay the bills! Therefore, getting the balance right can be really tricky! Its just so sad to think parents sometimes miss out on key things of their childrens lives because of work pressures 😦
In this film, the daughter kept approaching her dad to watch her talent show but he was far to busy with work to even pay attention to what she was saying. This was really sad as it was clearly a big thing for the daughter to make her father proud of her achievements! However, it was a happy ending and he got to watch it! (yay). Therefore, it is something they can both look back on and make good memories from. I imagine if the dad didn’t come, he would one day regret not going.
Summary: Always when possible put family/ close friends before work/ professional life! Much easier said then done, but need to cherish events whilst they are happening as once they are gone, they’re gone!
So what are you waiting for? give it a watch now! Link is here to watch it: https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p05pmzj6/preview-christmas-with-bbc-one
Let me know what you guys think of it! Will be interesting to see if anyone sees and learns from it in a different perspective 🙂
love Kayleigh xx
p.s. sorry for the long post on this video, it was just a big eye opener for me personally and can relate to it in my professional life and therefore found it a very inspirational video!
Haven’t been on here for a while, and thought now was the time to start blogging again. Have missed it!
Today I’ve had a busy day work. I work in a pub, and gets very busy on Saturdays! Therefore, I feel now I deserve a chilled out evening. My new book came today so looking forward to giving that a read! Then going to catch up on some EastEnders! (big fan,). What are your favourite ways to wind down after a busy day?
Thought I would start back on a short one, but am hoping to get back to regularly posting daily.
Kayleigh ❤ xx
Hey you lovely people!
So yesterday I decided to watch Tallulah on Netflix and thought I would tell you about how good it is! I do not want to say to much as I do not want to give to much away so I will keep it limited.
Okay so basically it starts off with Tallulah in her van ( yes she lives in a van) and her boyfriend breaks up with her because he doesn’t like her style of living. This really upsets her, and then somehow she ends up walking round in a flat. She then meets this crazy mum there and decides to leave Tallulah with her baby whilst she goes out. The mum then comes back really drunk and falls asleep. This is when Tallulah comes up with the crazy idea to steal her baby! From then on the film gets really good but I wont say what else happens!
Sounds good right? If any of you reading have Netflix then I would really recommend you watch it! I loved it from the beginning and found it really good!
Have any of you reading watched Tallulah before? If so please comment and let me know how you found it. Those of you that haven’t please give it a go and let me know what you think 🙂
So today I have decided to do another lush product review because well, lets just say I think I am slightly obsessed with LUSH! I tried a new bath bomb yesterday in my bath and was really impressed with it! I was first drawn to the bomb because of how pretty and girly it looks, and then I smelt it and knew I had to get it! It smells of candy floss and also has almond and cocoa butter in it!
The ‘creamy candy’ bath bomb
When I actually put it in the bath I wasn’t disappointed. It instantly started making bubbles and even turned my water pink!
For this lovely bath bomb it only costs £2.95. This is a good price because you do not have to use the product in one. Instead you can break bits of it so then you have some left for your next bath.
So if you love baths as much as I do, I recommend you treat yourself to this bath bomb 🙂
Love… that four letter word that is so important in this world. It keeps the world going on and makes it a nice world to be part of. A world without love to me is not a world at all. I could have all of the money and possessions in the world, but if I had no family or friends that loved me then that would be a rather depressing life! Everyone please cherish what you have now. Cherish everyone that you know cares for you and loves you because it really is so important. To anyone that thinks no one does, always remember there is even if you are not aware of it! If ever you are having a bad day, just think of the people in your life that are close to your heart and I can promise you it will make your day just that little bit brighter!
Linking into this, I thought I would share this photo. It is a gift I got for my birthday and the photos in the frame and the word at the front really link into one another. I adore this gift! When I am having a bad day I am just going to look at this and remind myself that actually it is not all that bad.
High five to that four letter word!
Keep on spreading the love to keep this world a happy place ❤
