This isn't an ad but I feel like it looks like one for @desperados  I just love the stuff and have especially been enjoying it in this hot weather!  I also wanted to show how nicely my plants have bloomed! (Leucanthemum I think?!) What's your favourite summer tipple? .

It's been SO damn hot in the UK for weeks now!!  I struggle with hot flushes & am in a boiling hot bedroom all day & night so it's hard. BUT! I love seeing the sunshine & blue skies outside.  I've managed to sit in the garden for a bit a few times and it's been gorgeous!  My husband bought us these 'Rainbow Uni-Cones' from @coopukfood to cool us down! How cute?! .

I had the absolute pleasure of meeting @katieabey today at Leeds Tattoo Expo!! As a huge fan of her artwork I see her pics on Instagram all the time. It was so cool to meet her in person  She was also very sweet & didn't make me feel like a weirdo for asking for a photo haha.  If you haven't already you NEED to check out her account. Cute artwork animals & puns galore! . . . . . . . #leedstattooconvention #leedstattooexposition #leedstattooexpo #leedstattooexpo2018 #leedstattoos #leeds…

Last week I got another delivery from the amazing @dorkfaceblog  I love her cards and also stocked up on the super cute self-care reminder stickers.  But I was most excited about the rainbow pin she's just brought out!  How pretty is it? I'd recommend giving her Etsy shop a browse to support small independent business! (No it's not sponsored  I just love her stuff)! . [Image description: white background with scattered colourful stickers yellow striped paper bag card & a rainbow pin in the…

What a majestic little cutie pie my Gracie is  I love her so much it's a bit embarrassing  She hates having her photo taken but I can't help myself - she just looks gorgeous all the time!

My husband found my mascot graffiti'd on the canal today! So close; if only they'd spelt my name right!  Sadly can't tag the artist as there isn't a full name.  Do you like graffiti art? I love seeing it down the canal. .

It's my birthday in two hours and I'm EXCITED!!!  I have felt a bit down in the run up to my birthday for the last three years. I think it's the realisation that another year has gone by and I'm STILL really ill.  But I've seen some small improvements in the last month or so so I'm feeling really positive! I'm looking forward to spending a chilled cosy day with my husband  No doubt I'll keep you up to date on my Stories! Nails are @impress_nails press-ons in Flash Mob. . [Image description…

This little stunner entered my life last week!! Isn't she beautiful?  It's the @hudabeauty Desert Dusk palette. I've had a good old swatch but I can't wait to use it properly.  Let's see if it can compete with my absolute favourite palettes; the @carlibel palette and the @nablacosmetics Dreamy Palette! What's your top eyeshadow palette? Let me know. .

Hi all! How was your weekend? I spent today having afternoon brunch with @teaisfortina at @olive_rye  followed by a lovely drink in the sun at @banyanlds - perfect!  It was sooo nice to spend some time outside; after being stuck in bed all day yesterday. Now I'm ready to start my birthday week!  I feel like this photo will be divisive - are you a mushroom lover or hater? Hehe. . [Image description: photo of a table with two plates of brunch food a coffee & two glasses of bucks fizz]…

ME AWARENESS WEEK!   Becoming a Different Person.  One of the hardest things with getting ill for me was becoming a 'different person'. I slowly realised that everything I used to define myself by was gone. I could no longer work be part of my sports team bake socialise regularly or be there for loved ones properly. I thought that left nothing; and that I was no longer 'me'. Think about it: when you first meet someone what do you ask? "What do you do?" Then "what do you like doing in your…
