I Do Love A Good Ramble,

Hi Everyone,

So once again I think this may be a bit of a ramble/moan about things that I doubt you will even care about but it helps me to vent things. Haha! *wow way to start positive :/*

I’m just going to jump straight into the point of this post, I am unhappy with myself at the moment. I don’t mean my life or anything like that, I mean me as an individual. Yes it is very self-indulgent but I’m on about my weight and how I’m looking at the moment. I have never really been a skinny mini, let’s face it, I have a bum and boobs and a bit of a belly! And it has never bothered me before because I don’t want to look like a stick insect or anything like that, that’s not who I am. But recently the weight has been creeping on bit by bit and now I have decided that enough is enough! But I struggle with the motivation. I have the best intentions in the world but I get lazy, in all honesty. I have looked in the mirror a few times recently and I didn’t think I could be so critical of myself!! I have always liked the fact that I have curves and am proud of that! But I am starting to think now I could be a bit thinner and still have curves.

I am fed up of trying to get ready to go out and struggling to find things I want to wear that I feel comfortable in, my favourite clothes just feeling that little bit tighter than they were and going shopping and not being able to find anything that suits me or fits me. And now is the time to do something about it I think. So I already have a gym membership (which has been a little neglected)  so I am going to try and plan time for the gym, time to go and have a swim etc. cut out takeaways and chocolate and try and eat smaller portions. I know it seems like quite a lot but I think its what I need to do! I don’t want to ‘crash diet’ or anything like that! I want it to be healthy and not make me ill!

So after all of that rambling, I want a little bit of your help please J if you know of any brilliant health, fitness, diet, food, motivational blogs please please let me know, I want to read as many as I possibly can and get as many ideas and tips and hopefully motivate myself back into good shape. I thank you for your help in advance guys, and if any of you are on a healthy journey, or have a good story which you have blogged about please let me know those as well.


Lots of Love

Stranger Returning & London Trip

Hello there everybody….

Remember me? Probably not. Yes I have been a terrible blogger recently and over the past few months I have done a few of these kinds of posts saying I have been bad and not been blogging as I should be but hay ho, everyone goes through bad patches don’t they?

So yea basically that is the reason, I have been going through a bit of a crappy patch really and blogging has not been at the forefront of my mind, unfortunately. And it is nothing else than that, I have had other things on my mind. I haven’t really been buying many new products or anything like that or been doing a lot really apart from trying to chill out. I am not going to go into massive detail with everything because I don’t think that it is right.

Anyway, how is everybody? What exciting things have you all been up to? I would love to know. I am glad at the moment that I have something to look forward to. Me and my boyfriend (Chris) are going down to London for a few days at the end of August. I am so excited as I have only ever been to London once when I was 6 years old. We have booked our trains down there and our hotel and I can’t wait. It is even more exciting that it is his birthday and we have been together for a year when we are there. There are quite a few things that I am excited to do.

·         Natural history museum

·         Shopping (Obviously)

·         Science museum

·         London eye

·         Buckingham palace

·         Madame Tussauds

·         Harrods

·         Hamleys

There are so many other places I want to see and things that I want to do. The main thing that I am struggling with is places to go and eat that are not ridiculously expensive or too fancy fancy!

I am getting so very excited and it can’t come soon enough!

4 week count down begins today!!!!!!!!

If any of you have any ideas about things we can do or where we can go please leave me some comments or links to posts that you have done about London. I would be so grateful, I love everything to do with London at the moment so keep as many coming as possible.

I am hopefully going to be a much better blogger from now on J I am in a much better place I think anyway!

Lots of Love

31 Day Photo Challenge Day 2

I Need Your Help With A Surprise....

Good afternoon everyone,

So this is going to be a bit of an odd post for me but let’s just roll with it! I am really hoping that Chris (my other half) doesn’t read this! Because this will spoil the whole surprise!

Righto, it is his 27th birthday on the 27th of August, and we have been together a year on the 31st of August, so I am trying to do a bit of stealthy sneaky planning for us to go away for a few days, and I am thinking London! I have only ever been to London once, (being the little country bumpkin I am) and that was when I was 6 and I went to Legoland with my Nan and Granddad. I know that we both love a bit of shopping and food and drink so I thought London would be a good choice, as well as the fact that I really want to go to the natural history museum.

This is where you guys come in seen as I have only been once and that was a bloody long time ago, I am looking for some recommendations on things, such as

·         Places to stay

·         Where to eat

·         Where is good to shop

·         Good places to go for a drink

·         Interesting things to do

With places to stay, I am thinking something nice because we have a reasonable budget to spend, as well as not too bad a distance from everything as we will be getting the train down there (seen as there are direct trains from our nearest train station) I am interested to know from people who have been and/or live in London what good things there are!

I would quite like to do the general tourist things as well, I am very open to people’s ideas and opinion on things.

Thank you for your help in advance

Lots of love

Quote Of Today #3

This is my mantra for today guys,

Hope you all have a good day :)

Lots of Love

Lets Call A Spade A Spade!

Yes I know I have been a terrible blogger! :( *slaps own wrist* I am not going to sit here and make excuses because it’s not really what I want to write about to be honest. However I will say that I have had a few issues going on recently with some of my family so I have been putting that and work as a high priority in my life at the moment.

Anyway now that is out of the way I just feel like sitting here and talking to you all, seen as life has been a bit, shall I say poo recently, I have decided that I need to sort myself out and make the most of myself as much as I can. So I have been thinking about some things that I want to do so that I can work towards slapping myself round the face and telling myself to get a grip.

1-      Absolutely gut my wardrobe – I have spent so long buying clothes because they look good on my friends or because I want to wear that style, even if it doesn’t suit me. I am also very bad at throwing things out, I’m a little bit of a hoarder (my mother would disagree, she thinks I am the world’s worst hoarder) however I am not getting to the point where I have lots of clothes that I don’t wear and that I don’t like, so instead of just throwing them away, I am going to give them to a local charity shop, this also links in with another thing that I want to do which is ‘do something good for somebody else’

2-      Go to the gym at least twice a week – I have gone and got myself a gym membership because I am fed up of feeling lazy and groggy, I do actually really enjoy going to the gym and going swimming, and this is the package I have got at my local gym. So whether it’s the gym twice or 1 gym session and 1 swimming session, I am going to try my best to make myself stick to it!

3-      Lose some weight – I have said this to my mum and I got a grilling from her, telling me that I am fine the way I am and all that malarkey (that stuff mums say because they have to) but I want to do it for me, nobody else, I am a size 12/14 at the moment and id be happy being a 10/12, I know I am never going to be a tiny skinny mini, I am not built that way and neither is anyone from my family (minus my twin brother but he is like a stick insect, all arms and legs so we don’t count that)

4-      Start saving – money I mean, I am terrible at saving money! Like really terrible, money burns a hole in my pocket; however I need to start getting myself some savings together so that I can eventually hopefully move out of home into my own place. (or hopefully our own place)

5-      Be more positive – I am a bit of a negative person, I think that everything is going to go wrong, that everybody is saying something about me or that im going to get bad news. I am a bit of a paranoid weirdo really, however I want to be a lot more positive about things, so I am going to get some motivational quotes in my bedroom so that I can look at them and try and make myself more positive.

There are a few more things but I think that 5 is enough for a blog post, I will keep you guys updated as to how I get on.

Have any of you set yourselves any targets recently?

Lots of Love

What I Have Been Loving This Week

Hi Guys, 

So I have decided to go more lifestyle on here and I hope that you are all going to like this change. I have decided to do each week a ‘what I have been loving this week’ post. Which can be anything that is as random as I like, which is the way that my personality is. So without further a do,

Me & Chris, Yes I know its a little cringe worthy but I do love this boy

1-      Tea, I have been loving Earl Grey tea, it is my favourite kind of tea anyway but I have got back into having ‘a brew’ again and I have been loving it.
2-      My Cat, I have had my cat since I was 4 and she is the little love of my life, she is called Missy and she is a Tabby cat, she has taken to sleeping in my bedroom and on the end of my bed which is lovely when you are snuggling up to go to sleep.
3-      Lunch with the Boyfriend, We normally do this every Sunday afternoon at our golf club after he has finished playing. I do not play on a Sunday but Chris plays most Sundays at silly o clock in the morning (Yes that’s an actual time, normally around 7:30) and we sit and have lunch together and chat with our friends and it is lovely.
4-      Friends, This is more towards the fact that my friends are all coming back from Uni at the moment and this makes me very happy.
5-      Darts, yes this is very very weird, but I play in a ladies darts team for my local pub and have played since I was 14 when I used to live in a pub, and we have a game every Tuesday night, I have started playing for a new team and I am enjoying it so much, anyways, I played in a fun knockout with my boyfriend’s friends on Wednesday and I got to the final out of 8, which I was very happy about.
6-      Music, I have really got back into having my ipod with me and listening to music a lot again, I have been getting some new music together for on my ipod and in my car which I love.
7-      Driving in the sun, kind of self-explanatory, but the last 2 weekends where I live have been nice and sunny and I love driving with my windows down singing to cheesy music :)  yes I know I'm sad!

So anyway guys this is what I have been loving this week, I hope you have enjoyed this post and I will speak to you again in a few days :)

What have you been loving recently?

Some Important News For You All

Hello there everyone,

I know that I have not been around for a while and I apologise for that so much, I have been so ridiculously busy with life, I’m pretty sure that you will all know what I mean with that.

Anyway I have been having a very hard blogger think, and I hate to say it but I have kind of lost my ‘beauty’ inspiration in my blog. So I have been thinking and have decided that I am now going to lean more towards the lifestyle/my life sort of blog.

I am thinking about changing the name to something a bit more in-keeping with the new style, however do not fear there will still be beauty and makeup bits thrown into the mix of the blog, just there will be more lifey type things on here which is what I have really enjoyed thinking about ideas for and reading other peoples versions of their life blogs.

So if any of you have any ideas of what I can rename BBN or of anybody who could help me to create a new blog layout I would be ever so grateful.


Lots of Love

Hello There Stangers

Well hello there everyone,

I hope that you are all well. I think I should probably start with apologising for not posting for a month! I know naughty (slaps back of hand) I have been very busy recently, organising my birthday party because I am turning 21 in just under 3 weeks, and I have got myself a new job *yay*. It is only a part time job at the moment but it will hopefully be increasing in hours and that kind of thing which is a good thing! I am starting to feel more positive about everything at the moment and life seems to be going good!

So there is a few posts that I have planned and am going to be writing them up as soon as I possibly can and getting them out there for you all.

I am very sorry again for being away and I will be around a lot more from now on.

I now have instagram which is Kayleigh_jane16, so go and follow me over there :D

Lots of Love

Friends, Blogging & Ramble

Helloo Guys,

So I know I have been away for 6 days and as I said in my last post I have been very busy trying to sort out a lot of things. So I thought that I would just do a bit of a rambly life kind of post for you today. Sorry if these bore you but I like to have a bit of a ramble sometimes and seen as a lot of my best friends are away at university *sobsob* I enjoy having a bit of a ramble to you. So I guess I will start with me just mentioning that, My friends. I rarely see any of my best friend’s from school because most of them are away at university. My 2 best friend’s Betony & Hannah both live in Leeds which is a 2 hour train journey away from where I live and it costs about £30, so seen as I am not working at the moment this is quite hard. One of my other friend’s Laura is going traveling on Wednesday for a year so I am not going to be able to see her for a long time either. Anyway, I still live in the town that I went to school in, I spend most of my time when I am out with either my boyfriend Chris and our friends or with my friends that I had before I was with him. 

Hannah, Betony & Me

Have you ever found that you randomly get thrown together and become really good friends with someone, sometimes out of a bit of a dodgy situation? Well me and my really good friend Laura (a different one from the one who is going travelling) have had this same experience. We used to be mates who were in the same friendship group when I was with my Ex-boyfriend and used to just chat randomly. I'm not going to get into the details of it but during the breakup of my old relationship with my ex some things were said and I was very glad that Laura considered me as a good enough friend to tell me everything and explain things to me. Ever since then we have been getting closer and we now go on girly nights out just the 2 of us and will just go and get a coffee and have a chat, she is there for me when I need her and I am there for her when she needs me.

Anyway, none of these friends of mine know about my blog at all but I am going to start to tell people at some stage soon, probably starting with my boyfriend to be honest. There are a lot of reasons that I haven’t told people to be honest but talking to other bloggers on twitter, and through the #bbloggers chat on a Sunday night, they have been so supportive and have gotten me thinking about talking to my family and friends about it. I tweeted earlier that I am trying to get my friend to start blogging, she reads lots of blogs like I do and watches youtube videos, she has also said to me before that she would love to be a youtuber so I thought that getting a friend involved in what I am doing will help me come forward to people. So hopefully I will have her blog to show you guys some time soon.

So I know that this was one of the most random posts that I have ever done. I am going to get some more up this week and at the weekend so keep your eyes out for that.

Have you told people about your blogging? What was their reaction?

Lots of Love
