November Favourites

November has been busy; well, it's certainly busy for me and my boring little life. At the beginning of the month I travelled back up north to spend a few days with my family, and celebrate my nephews fourth birthday. I can't believe he's four, he's growing up so fast. My blog has had a revamp, let me know what you think; I absolutely love it. AND, I got my powerchair!!! I'm not going to say too much as I have a whole post planned but I bloody love it.

Planner Addict: My Current Planner Collection

I've been meaning to write this post for a while but you know how it is, posts pile up and things get put on the back-burner; alas my planner addict post is finally here. I'm not going to show you inside my planners just yet, I intend on doing separate posts for each one, but I will tell you what I use them for and why I use three.

Health Update | PoTS Follow-Up

In  September I went for three days of autonomic tests at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery - you can read all about the tests I had here. I received a letter a few weeks after my tests with my results but obviously still had to have a follow-up appointment with my consultant.

The Body Shop Matte Liquid Lipstick

If  you pop by here often you'll notice that I'm a huge liquid lipstick fan...actually let me rephrase that, I'm a huge fan of high-end liquid lipstick. Call me a snob but I've found the staying power, pigmentation and wear much more comfortable and all-round better quality with the more expensive brands. So, when I won a Twitter competition for all twelve of the new The Body Shop Matte Lip Liquids, I was extremely excited but didn't have high expectations...

Enamel Pin Collection featuring Punky Pins and Veronica Dearly

I've always been a lover of badges; I used to cover my bag in mildly offensive pins during my teens, and spend ages raiding the badge tub in Quiggins (alternative shop in Liverpool) whenever I went shopping. My jackets, coats, bags, were all stamped with a pin, but they were nowhere near as amazing as my collection now.

When I found Punky Pins on Twitter, I almost immediately headed to their website and placed an order. Luckily, I heard about them during the time they had a Halloween discount code live, so I quickly added that baby to my order!

All Natural Hair Dye from Naturigin

For the last few months I've been dyeing my hair in the comfort of my own bathroom; now I say 'I've been' doing it but I mean my boyfriend has, unfortunately my health makes these things very difficult. Not only is it a lot more convenient but it's so much cheaper. I don't know about you but I'd much rather spend (approximately) £10 every six weeks rather than £80 plus on hair colour.

My Love/Like Relationship with Books

Anyone that knows me will tell you I'm a bookworm; I have books in every room, shelves, cases, boxes of books, and as much as I love them, I often find myself in a bit of a love/like relationship. What I mean by that is, I either inhale novel after novel, and can't get enough, or I don't look at a book never mind pick it up and read it for a few months.

Brain Fog #3

Don't expect to be reading this and learning something about brain fog, this series is all about the ridiculous things I say, or try to say, when brain fog has kicked in and I make no sense.

October Favourites

October has been a month of all kinds of emotions; it's been busy and I've cried a lot but it's also been absolutely amazing. I reached my £5000 target for my powerchair in 26 days, I was interviewed for ITV News Anglia, and I was featured in my local newspaper - lets just say that I got about last month.
