• Letter To Myself This Year – BLOGMAS DAY 13

    Happy Blogmas day 13 everyone! I’m just going to jump straight into this one…  Dear 2018 Shannon, What a year it has been. Isn’t that the most cliché thing that could ever be said at the end of any year? I mean, it’s fucking true though. The ups and downs have been real.  Amazing ups and terribly low, lows. The ups were more often than last year, that was great. We went on loads of lovely holidays, had almost anxiety free holidays (AMAZING!) saw bands we’ve loved for years and enjoyed ourselves on days when there wasn’t even much to do. The lows were rubbish, mental health issues were still at an…

  • My 2018 Goals

    Hey everyone, firstly I want to wish you all a Happy New Year! I have a good feeling about this one…especially after the shit show of 2017. What the fuck was that, universe?! I’ve got a few things I’d like to do and achieve this year and I am confident and motivated to do them! Here we go 2018… Start Yoga I’ve wanted to start yoga for a long time now but have either not had the motivation or confidence to do it. I feel like it’s going to improve my mental health so much and make me feel so well in general. My best friend Ben gave me such…

  • All Things Lush

    Hey everyone!  Okay so,  my names Shannon and I am a Lushaholic….this is your cue to say Hiiiiiiiiii Shannon.  I’m obsessed, every week on my day off I will stroll in there and get some new items and the staff seem to recognise me now which I don’t know if that it is lovely or tragic on my part. But I’m embracing it, bring me in to your family!  This ‘All Things Lush’ post is going to be regular, every time I go into Lush I shall do a little haul and talk about my favourite. Each week I’ll talk about my current favourite item, the stuff I purchased and…

  • A Fresh Start.

    Hi everyone! As you may have gathered from the previous post, times have been a little tough lately. But here I am, ready to let the last few months go and start a fresh with life. I realised my worth, again as I say was in the last post  – I’ve been so much more happier recently than I was in a very long time. This proved to me that maybe I wasn’t happy for a much longer time than I realised and God I’m glad I’m where I am now. They say everything happens for a reason and I’ve never believed it until now. I’m quite happy with the result…

  • Self Worth.

    Hi everyone, I hope you are doing well!  It’s been a while, my life has been a whirlwind since the last time I posted, the New Year really treated me to a multitude of shite all at once. Thanks Universe.  I had to deal with a break up, leaving a house and my Grandad passing away all in the space of a couple of weeks. Firstly, I was broken, didn’t think I’d be able to cope. Then my Grandad passed away and as much as I fucking miss him and wish he was still here, it put life and everything into perspective.  I haven’t let myself wallow, I haven’t sat…

  • Effortless Inspiration Books by Dani DiPirro: Review!

    Hi everyone, it’s been a while for which I apologise but if I’m honest I’ve been an absolute mess lately. Ridiculously tired, run down, a mess from start to finish. I’m sorry!  Anyway, a little while ago the lovely people over at Watkins Media  sent me some copies of Dani DiPirro’s (aka, Positivelypresent) new books (as well as a couple of her older ones to complete the set). There are four in the set: Gratitude, Living In The Moment and the two newer books Forgiveness and Compassion. I jumped on board when they got in touch so I could get my hands on these and try to relate them to my own…

  • What Keeps Me Happy…

    Hiiii! It’s been so long I am a poop, I lack motivation and Sims 4 exists… sigh. I wanted to do a post about all the things that make me happy and that could maybe give you the chance to think about what could make you happy when times suck. I turn to these things when I’m having rough times so let me know what you do! My happy box My happy box (or hoarder box) is full of little memories I’ve collected through the years! It’s full of photos, gig tickets, train tickets, random little things like confetti from gigs too! It’s just a box full of things I…

  • Blogmas: Day Fifteen!

    Day 15, wowweeeee that’s 2 weeks worth of blog posts and I don’t think they’ve been very good at all, haha oops. I finally got a Christmas jumper, I am the proud owner of my first Christmas jumper, I feel like a new woman! I’ve never bought anything from Peacocks but this was £16 and it is quite fetching, I got a large because baggy clothes are the best. I’ve had a few mentally challenging days and if my mum is reading this I’d like to say thank you for being the best, I love you lots.  Hopefully seeing some of my pals tonight which is nice, ahhhh I actually…

  • Blogmas: Day Fourteen!

    I’m still lacking on the super Christmassy posts which is making my blogmas seem like boremas but I’ve got lots planned to do leading up to the big day so stick with me, please! This morning I went out and about with my parents just like I used to before I moved away and saw my beautiful little cousin who was kitted out in the cutest tartan skirt, AGH.  I’m going out for dinner with my friend later for a long overdue catch up which shall involve revealing all of my tragic university stories haha. I’ll update you later! Okay, it’s now super late my apologies! I went out for…

  • Positive Tuesdays: Week Three.

    Hiiiiiii everyone! How are you doing? It’s quite a miracle that I have actually committed to doing this ‘Positive Tuesdays’ for a 3rd week running, well done me, I deserve a pat on the back for doing such a simple task, gosh! It’s been quite a week for me if I’m honest, anxieties and such were all over the place but all quite valid if I’m honest – I leave for London on Saturday! And with that my mum wasn’t well, neither was I at the beginning of last week so it’s all been a little bit crap but why would I possibly dwell on the negatives on a post…
