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

If   you've missed my previous post on brain fog, you can check it out here. 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.
