Bellabox Review – March 2018

Beauty, LifeStyle, Product Review, review, Uncategorized

Hi Lovelies,

It’s time for another Bellabox review!! On a side note how lovely is this months box, my fav colour is purple so was very happy to see a purple box this month.

1223322

Modelco Luxe Creme Long Wear Lipstick

How stunning is this lipstick colour? it’s a very beautiful red/burgundy colour. I also really like the packaging of the product its very slick.

Let me know if you would like me to do a review on this product as I would be interested to see if this product does last all day as it claims.

You can purchase this product from Model Co directly for $17 dollars

Modelco Super Lips Gloss long-lasting lip lacquer by Hailey Baldwin

IMG_3470

I am really liking that we received two lip products from Modelco this month & am really impressed with ModelCo’s packaging of their products.

It mentions that this product gives you fuller looking lips with a luxe high shine finish.

The only thing that slightly puts me off buying this product for myself is the price tag, I don’t ever really wear lip gloss so I probably wouldn’t ever buy it anyway but I have tried looking for the size that you get of the lipgloss for $25 & can’t find it but if it is $25 dollars for 2.4ml or 3ml then I think that is very steep in my opinion.

You can purchase this product from Model Co directly for $25 dollars

Skinfood New Zealand Skincare – light moisturiser

IMG_3462

This product & brand I have never heard of before, from what it mentions on the info sheet its paraben free, natural, organic & approved by the UK vegetarian society. It has peach oil, manuka honey, avocado, elderflower & marshmallow extracts, it smells like peaches.

You can purchase this product from Skinfood directly for $16 dollars for 100ml

Toni & Guy basic thick elastic & bobby pin combo pack

797974

There’s not much to say about this I think it’s such a great idea that a brand brought out a little tin that you can keep your bobby pins & hair ties in as I am forever losing mine.

It’s a good little pack that comes with 20 bobby pins & 6 hair ties in different sizes

You can purchase this product from Woolworths exclusively for $6.99.

The Goat Skincare Soap Bar

464646

I don’t think I have ever used goat’s milk soap bars before but it smells amazing.

I really like the packaging with the purple, white & blue, it mentions that it is suitable for dry, itchy and sensitive skin.

You can purchase this product from Terry White Chemist, Priceline or The Goat Skin directly for $3.60 for 100g.

Bonus Product – Natures Commonscents Paw Paw Body Wash

IMG_3465

From the packaging it says that this product has no sulphates, no parabens & leaves your skin feeling smooth & refreshed.

The product smells amazing as well.

Let me know if you have tried any of these products before or what product you would most like to try.

Until next time

Cacao & Chia Protein Ball – Recipe

LifeStyle, Real Life, Recipe, Uncategorized

Hi Lovelies,

I thought I would do a different post today, if you follow me on my social media you might have noticed that lately I have been trying to eat healthier so I have been prepping my meals for the week for the last two weeks now which is going pretty good.

I recently did my food shop & came across these crunchy nut cacao and Chia protein ball mix which was on special for I think roughly $4 dollars at Coles. I thought to add to my snacks for the day I would make up some protein balls so here is the recipe & steps I followed.

What you will need:

1 Pack of I quit sugar Superfood Protein Ball Mix

IMG_3381

1/3 cup of Rice Malt Syrup ( I used Pure Harvest It’s Organic)

IMG_3382

1/4 cup of  virgin Coconut Oil ( I used Planet Food Organic unrefined)

IMG_3383

1 cup of boiling water

1 teaspoon of Cinnamon

2 cups Desiccated Coconut ( I just used the Coles brand, just for rolling)

IMG_3384

1 Large mixing bowl

Steps:

  1. Pour the Protein mix into a large mixing bowl
  2.  Heat the Rice Malt Syrup & Coconut Oil together  either in a saucepan or in the microwave for approx 60 seconds until melted & bubbling, then add this to the mix & stir evenly
  3. Add the water & cinnamon & mix all together
  4. Place mixture into fridge for 15 minutes, I didn’t put my mix into the fridge I just sat it aside for the 15 minutes which I found made it really easy to roll the mix into balls
  5. Roll the mixture into small balls & then roll into the desiccated coconut until covered (you can roll the balls as big or as small as you want them to be obviously the bigger the balls you make the less quantity you will be able to make)
  6. After rolling the balls into the coconut, place in an airtight container & refrigerate until ready to eat

Thats it!!!

IMG_3395

I like this recipe because its easy, you don’t need to bake anything and it took me about 30 minutes to put it all together & was pretty cheap to make as well.

Let me know if you enjoy these posts as I would be happy to try out some other recipes & share them with you.

Until next time

The time I was a Catfish – My Mistake

LifeStyle, Real Life, Uncategorized

Hi Lovelies,

For today’s post I thought I would talk about something that I really haven’t spoken about to most people & something that I regret doing when I was younger.

I don’t really remember how it started I think it was early high school years so I think we were like 13-14, to make my best-friends ex boyfriend at the time jealous my sister, her & I created these four fake profiles on MySpace & just started interacting with them and just posting comments on each others profiles to make it out like we were all friends and that one of the guy profiles was wanting to date my friend ( I know how lame were we)

Anyways eventually I think a few months later we stopped using the accounts and they just kind of remained silent.

I think about a year or so later I started really getting into boys and the whole online flirting/dating scene but I didn’t really feel comfortable with how I looked & wasn’t confident in myself so I went on dating sites using the pictures from one of the fake profiles that we had created.

**Above are some of the photos I used

At first I was just talking with different people from all over the world and then I met Kelsey he was 28 & I was 16 at the time and we originally were just chatting as I found him to be very interesting

We exchanged numbers and began texting alot, eventually we even started speaking on the phone a couple of times a week.

As much as it sounds silly but I really fell head over heels for Kelsey even though I had never met him, he was so much older but yet he was so young at heart which I think is what really made me find him attractive was that he had a great personality.

Fast forward about 6 or so months I can’t really remember how long we were talking for but one day he sent me a message that he had found other sites with the same pictures as the ones I was using and obviously wanted to know what the heck was going on.

My heart stopped and I still to this day remember typing this massive message about why I did it & why I hadn’t told him & that the only thing I lied about was my image etc. I remember crying so much that he wouldn’t like the real me and what I looked like. I remember after I sent that message he wrote back & was like well show me what you really look like so I did & even though he told me I was pretty he said he didn’t want anything to do with me & I was crushed, heartbroken & I felt really alone because apart from my bestfriend know one else knew about him let alone that at that time I felt like my whole heart had been crushed & I would be miserable for ever.

I deleted his number, the Facebook account & never spoke to Kelsey again, for awhile afterwards I wasn’t really myself & stopped eating properly but after awhile I got back to normal.

This is a mistake of mine that I have made that I really regret mostly because I hate liars & yet I was one but also mainly because Kelsey was very open about his life and we used to talk alot about things going on his life etc but yet although I was open with everything else lying about what I looked like was a big thing that I wasn’t open about.

I also felt bad because that girl whoever & wherever she is has that many people using her pictures as their own & although some may think its flattering but imagine if she is someone who is also on the online dating scene she would constantly have to defend that she actually who she says she is, she would have people thinking they are talking or dating her, if she had a partner they might think she is cheating because of all the different profiles etc.

I have learnt since then that I am me & I shouldn’t pretend to be anyone else, nor should anyone. I know it’s sometimes hard because alot of young girls and even women my age look up to supermodels & influencers who are always so beautiful & skinny that we want to be like them that we think that unless we look like how they do no one will love us which is so wrong but unfortunately something that alot of us including men face in today’s society.

I hope you liked this post it’s something that I still to this day feel bad & sorry that I did it but one that I hope helps at least one person takes something from.

Until next time

Weekend Recap

LifeStyle, Real Life, Uncategorized

Hi Lovelies,

I thought I would do a recap of my weekend as I don’t think I have done one in awhile and I have had a bit of a busy weekend so I thought I would share what I got up to with you.

Friday 16th March

After work I got home & we decided that we would go out for dinner to one of our favourite local restaurants Lazy Moes.

We both got the lamb kebabs which I wish I had of taken a picture of the meals because they were so delicious but so big!! Which is something that I have found with Lazy Moes is you always get alot of food but it is still reasonably priced so its a good restaurant that you can take the whole family to as well as there is a variety of options available.

After dinner we went to our local shopping center as I wanted to go into The Reject Shop to by some preserving jars as I am beginning my first week of prepping my meals for the breakfast, lunch & snacks for work but they didn’t have the ones I was after.

Saturday 17th March

Today my partner & I were going to spend the day cleaning the front & backyard and hang out together however at about 8.30am I woke up and had a feeling that my hair appointment was today & not next week (like I thought it was). After searching high and low for the that had the date & time on it I realised that it was today & was at 12.30pm. So after rushing around the house to get ready & then going to the post office I made my way to the otherside of town for my appointment, I actually got there earlier then anticipated so I called into Chadstone Shopping Centre to catch up with my mum & sister we went into The Reject Shop were they had the jars I was after, we also went into Lush & I picked up two new bath bombs the butterball & rocket science & I also got the rub rub rub shower scrub & the whoosh shower jelly.

I have tried the butterball before however the other products were all ones that I haven’t tried before so I can’t wait to try them out & will most likely do a review for you all.

After that I drove to my hair appointment & then drove back home, once I got home I just caught up on my favourite YouTubers videos & then Rob & I spent the night in watching Thor Ragarok which was a really good movie. Once the movie I went to sleep & I think Rob stayed up & played his games

Sunday 18th March

Today was food prep day, so I got up at about 10am & went to the shops to purchase all the food I needed for the week which I got from both Coles & Woolworths.

I spent about two hours all up getting everything I needed & then when I got home I had some sushi for lunch & then began prepping all my food.

I followed a video from Liezl Jayne Strydom which was her weight loss meal prep for women here the link if you would like to check it out, I prepped the same meals that she did but I just did it for breakfast & lunch, I also made some slight changes to some of the meals also.

After I finished food prepping, I did some washing, made tacos for dinner & then had a relaxing bath.

So that was my weekend it was a bit more full on then my normal weekends but I felt so accomplished get everything that I did done.

What did you get up to this weekend?

Until next time

February 2018 Bellabox Review

Beauty, LifeStyle, Opinion, Product Review, Uncategorized

Hi Lovelies,

It’s time for another review on last month’s Bellabox, February’s box was all about being ‘Loved up’.

Original Source – Sweet Apple & Vanilla Milk Moisturising Shower Gel

IMG_3295

I have used this brand before but not this particular scent & can I tell you it smells amazing!!!

If you’re from Australia you might remember being younger and there was this medicine which I have no idea what it was for but it always tasted so good like strawberries & this scent smells exactly like that.

Original Source is cruelty free, vegan, 100% natural fragrance & isn’t tested on animals. There’s also a wide range of scents available like coconut, lime & mango.

You can pick this product up from Priceline & local supermarkets for $4 dollars for 250ml

Hello Fresh

I have heard of Hello Fresh but have never tried it out before. Basically the concept is that you choose a package which is then delivered to you with all the ingredients & portions for however many people you picked your package for & provide you with the steps to cook it.

The thing that I like about Hello Fresh is that they have options for both meat eaters & vegetarians. I like that the recipes change each week so there is always variety.

The only thing that puts me off purchasing Hello Fresh is that for me If I was going to do a delivery dinner service I would want it to be pre-cooked so I could just heat it up after work and not have to worry about actually making it but that is just me personally.

If you’re in Australia & want to try out Hello Fresh you can check them out via their website.

Mannakadar Beauty Eyeshadow

How stunning is this eyeshadow firstly, I have heard of this brand before as we got their Glo illuminator in a previous Bellabox.

The eyeshadow is in the shade First Class & is quite pigmented, its a lovely like copper/bronzey shade which in my collection I don’t really have a lot of shades in this similar colour so I am looking forward to using this eyeshadow in a look soon.

You can purchase this eyeshadow from Manna Kadar Cosmestics directly for $19 dollars

Palmer’s Multi Effect Perfecting Facial Oil

As you all know I love Palmer’s products so I was excited to see another Palmer’s product in this months Bellabox.

This oil contains 9 pure oils plus cocoa butter. Resveratrol & retionol to help prevent the signs of ageing & helps reduce the appearance of lines.

You can purchase this product from Priceline for $20 dollars for 30ml

Clarins Paris Extra-Firming Day Wrinkle-lifting  cream

785555

I have heard of this brand before but I don’t think I have ever owned any of their products. This product is an anti-ageing product that lifts & firms your skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles & firms the skin.

Looking at their website there is a lot of good reviews on their products which too be honest is good because this brand is also very expensive.

I love that Bellabox gives such good sample sizes for example the sample of this product that I have is 30ml & looking on their website you can buy this product in 50ml’s which is $120 dollars

Luiere Bio-Cellulose Mask

Oh how I love a face mask!!

I haven’t heard of this particular brand before but I love the packaging of this product.

Looking at their website it mentions that the mask provides deep hydration & smooths wrinkles & is suitable for all skin types.

I think I will do a review of this product as I am probably going to use it soon when I have my bath, so look out for this on my page.

You can purchase this product from either Luiere’s website for $12.50

Nutrimetics BB Creme

IMG_3324

This was a bonus sample that we got with this months box. It’s the Nutrimetics BB creme in the shade light/medium.

I would like to try out this product but given the sample size I don’t think I will be able to get a good amount of product to try it out.

You can purchase this product from Nutrimetics website for $35 dollars

So thats all for this month’s Bellabox review, let me know if you would like me to try out any other products from this months bellabox & I would be happy to do so.

Until next time,

Mariah x

Bellabox Review – January 2018

LifeStyle, Product Review, review, Uncategorized

Hi Lovelies,

Its time for my first Bellabox Review for 2018 with the January box, let’s just forget that it’s the start of March.

Karen Murrell/ Lipstick

The first product I came across was this lipstick in the shade Sandstorm. I have seen this brand in store before and have also tried them out in a previous Bellabox.

The shade is a beautiful nude shade & smells like cinnamon. This lipstick is an all natural & made in New Zealand.

You can pick this lipstick up from Priceline or at Karen Murrell for $30 for 4g

Blaq / Meteor Shower Scrub

IMG_3235

Now this product I am so excited for & can’t wait to try!! It’s the meteor shower scrub from Blaq.

The scrub contains activated charcoal to detoxify your skin and includes actual meteor dust that will leave you with a supple, iridescent skin that is out of this world.

I will definitely be doing a review on this product so keep a look out for that soon.

You can pick up 200g of this scrub from either Priceline or Blaq for $24.95

La Roche-Posay / Anthelios XL SPF 50 Nutritive Oil

ANTHELIOS XL_Spray Huile SPF50+-200ml 240x420px 150kb

I have heard of La Roche-Posay before but to be honest am not overly aware of all of their products.

It says this oil is suitable for all skin types and will keep your skin nourished in extreme sunshine with a gorgeous satin glow. It also has SPF 50 broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection.

Now if you have seen me in real life you will now that I am basically casper the ghost & never tan or burn so I did give this product to my partner to use as he is a tradie & in the sun all day.

He has said that he does like it & it’s good but he finds to be very oily & not very breathable in the sense that when its really hot it doesn’t breath properly.

It does also smell amazing!!

You can pick this product up from Chemist Warehouse or Priceline for $36.95 for 200ml

Klorane / Shampoo

IMG_3246

This product I am pretty sure we have received before in another Bellabox but to be honest I have never tried it out.

It says on the pamphlet that it restores volume & shine to lackluster hair. Its perfect for all hair types & is designed to gently cleanse & strengthen, leaving you with smooth & tangle free hair.

You can purchase this product from Priceline for $21.00 for 400ml

Barubaya Crocodile Oil with rose geranium essential oil

RG_safetycap-500x667

Now this product I have never heard and to be honest at first I thought it was oil to burn in the home haha.

Looking at it though it says that you can use this product instead of moisturiser for a natural, boost to your skin. It can aid in the treatment of eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, fungal infections & rashes. It can also help with scars, burns, stretch marks & acne.

I am going to see if I can get my sister to use this so we can review it as she has been currently experiencing an outbreak of eczema on her face so look out for a review on this product.

You can purchase this product from Barubaya for $18 for 10ml

Palmolive Oil Infusions Body Moisturiser

IMG_3244

As a bonus product there was 2 x 12ml of the rose with macadamia oil body moisturiser.

I haven’t used this particular moisturiser before but have used other Palmolive products such as the hand wash & other body washes which I have always loved & found to be great value for money.

You can pick this moisturiser either from Palmolive directly, Priceline or Safeway/Coles for $10 dollars for 400ml.

Well there you have it for my review on January’s Bellabox, what product would you most like to try?

Until next time

Mariah xx

 

 

 

 

Our Weekend Getaway

LifeStyle, Real Life, Uncategorized

Hi Lovelies,

How amazing is a weekend away? My partner & I recently celebrated our nine year anniversary as previously mentioned in my ‘9 Year Anniversary Post’

I decided that seeing as we never really go away just us I thought I would book a romantic weekend away so we could spend some quality time together.

Now you may be like Mariah you live alone together can’t you just do that every weekend??  which yes look we could have (would have saved me some money) but its different being away from home & having no responsibilities or have to clean up or worry about washing etc or having friends or family come over or being distracted by each others hobbies.

We can just go relax and not have to worry about anything else except having a good time & enjoying each other’s company.

So we stayed at this little cottage in Mount Dandenong called Arnica Views Summit Retreat which is about an hour and a bit away from our house & is situated up the top of the mountain.

We arrived there just after 3pm (which was our check in time) & settled in to the cottage, I have included some photos before of the cottage.

The cottage was a loft and had the lounge & kitchen on the bottom level & then up the stairs was the bed, spa bath & bathroom/toilet.

It was a really old fashioned cottage on the bottom & very modern on the top floor, the top floor had the ceiling lower in different parts which took awhile to get use so we kept bumping our heads on the ceiling.

The booking came with breakfast for the two days we were there which was a lovely hamper with a loaf of bread, bacon, eggs, juice, milk, tea/coffee & condiments it was a great quantity of food which we didn’t end up finishing

The cottage itself I did like but it was different to what I was expecting

We had dinner reservations at a restaurant called Sky High which was just a 2 minute drive from the cottage & was right on top of the mountain before our reservation we just hung out with some snacks and watched Airheads.

Dinner was lovely, it was a small place with candles on each table & a really elegant menu I had the salmon & Rob had the eye fillet, which was delicious.

It had such a great view of the skyline which I took a couple of photos of however it was one of those scenes that was better in person then it looks on camera.

After we got back I hopped into the spa bath for a little while which was so relaxing & then we watched a movie called Powder.

On Saturday we made some breakfast before heading out to this antique/collectable place called Hunted Collectables which was a massive warehouse & so cool. My partner is in to collecting old retro games and consoles etc & I love looking at old and unique things so it was a great way to spend the day together.

After that we were going to head to some other places but I started feeling really crappy because of course the day before we went away aunt flo decided to visit me so we ended up going back home & I had a quick shower and just had a lie down.

Afterwards for dinner we went to this place called Kelly’s Bar & Kitchen which was a barn looking restaurant that had live music.

It was a great place & the food was amazing, I can’t remember what Rob got I think it was a steak but I got the Spicy Calamari  which was delicious. Everyone was so nice there especially the wait staff were so lovely so would definitely recommend visiting if you’re ever in Mount Dandenong.

Once we got back to the cottage Rob gave me a really nice massage which was so lovely & then I hopped into the spa bath & relaxed in there for about an hour until I accidentally dropped my phone in the bath WHOOPS but thankfully it still works.

We both decided to go home on Saturday night instead of leaving on Sunday morning we  both were just ready to go home & I wasn’t sleeping properly because I was so worried about leaking which I know is so silly but I just hate sleeping somewhere new on WHITE sheets (btw why do hotels use white sheets & linen on their beds) & feel really uncomfortable.

So we got home at about midnight & just went to bed and watched a movie.

It was such a great weekend I wouldn’t change a thing except for aunt flo coming of course but it was so relaxing & great to spend some quality time with just us without any distractions.

I hope you liked this little post.

Until next time

Review – John Frieda Shampoo & Conditioner

Beauty, LifeStyle, Product Review, review, Uncategorized

Hey Lovelies,

So today I thought I would share with you my review on the Beach Blonde Cool Dip Purifying Shampoo & the Beach Blonde Smooth Seas Detangling Conditioner by John Frieda that came in the November & December Bellabox.

ooooll   4788464

Packaging

I really like the package of both the shampoo & conditioner, the colours all go well together.

If I had to choose one over the other it would be the Shampoo I just love the look of it.

Product

The product smells amazing, you get a strong scent of mint which is so refreshing. Even after washing my hair & drying it my hair still smells so minty.

I am also very wasteful with my shampoo & conditioner so I normally use a bit of product but even with that, I have used both products about 10-15 times already and I still have over a quarter of each bottle left.

Does it do what it says it will?

The conditioner says it will detangle calms & smooths dry hair leaving it shiny & easy to comb.

I found that it does untangle your hair to a certain extent would I say it completely untangles no….however it does leave your hair feeling smooth which is a statement in itself because to be honest right now my hair is hideously overdue for a cut & colour.

The shampoo on the other hand says it is refreshing, cleanses thirsty heat damaged hair & infused with energising mint.

It is refreshing & has a very strong mint scent to it which leaves your hair smelling amazing. Again it did leave my hair feeling smooth & cleansed whilst wet but once dry I still felt that it was dry.

I will definitely need to use both the shampoo & conditioner again once I have had my hair done to see if there is any difference.

Would I buy it again?

Yes I would buy these products again, they do most of what they claim to do & could possibly do it all if you have regularly maintained hair. The mint smell is to die for and always leaves my hair smelling amazing & for 295ml bottle you get so much use out of it so I would pay the $16 dollars

So there you have it, if you would like to purchase either the shampoo or conditioner they are currently on sale at Priceline

Let me know if you have tried any other John Frieda products.

Until next time

10 Things you didn’t know about me!

LifeStyle, Real Life, Uncategorized

Hey Lovelies,

I recently watched a video that Tammy Hembrow did on her YouTube channel which was 10 things that you didn’t know about her & I thought it was a good way for you all to learn more about me.

To check out Tammy’s video click on this link

So here are 10 things you may not know about me

1.When I was 5 I had eye surgery

So when I was 5 I had surgery on my eyes as I am short sighted & to try and correct that I had to have surgery which worked for a few years but then when I was about 13 my eyes got worse which resulted in me having to wear glasses. I would personally never get laser eye surgery or wear contacts as It freaks me out thinking of a laser near my eyeball as well a putting something onto my eyeball YUCK

2. My Birthdate/Name

So I was born on February 28th (YAY my birthday is soon) & share a birthday with my mums mum Vicki. As I was my nana’s first grandchild & because I was born on her birthday my nana got to name me, which she chose Mariah because it was different and apart from Mariah Carey there wasn’t really any other Mariah’s around (at least that she was aware of) As my mum’s mum got to name me, my parents decided that my middle name would be my dad’s mums first name June.

3. I Have never broken a bone

To this day (touch wood) in my almost 27 years of being alive I have never broken any single bone in my body 🙂

4. WWE

Growing up I was very much a tomboy & still am to this day but when I was younger probably up until I was  about 18-19 I was obsessed with Wrestling (WWE) I had just about all of the DVD’s, all the dvd’s of my favourite wrestlers, I had merchandise in my room which I still have to this day (just no longer in my room). I was obsessed with John Cena I even had his CD which I got shipped from America. I cried when Eddie Guerrero died as I said OBSESSED!!!

5. Spanish

I am a quarter Spanish, my num’s dad was a full Spanian. I never got to meet him as he moved back to Spain after he & my nana separated & then passed away when I was about 11 or 12. I did get to meet my poppy and my mum’s dad’s sister. I learnt Spanish in school but don’t speak it or remember much of it but I am actually currently learning the language again.

6.  I have never met either of my grandfathers

To this day I have never met either one of my grandfathers, my mum’s dad as mentioned above lived in Spain & then died when I was 11 or 12 so I never got to meet him & my dad’s dad left home when my dad was in his mid teens (about 30 or so years ago) & has never been seen or heard from since. To this day they don’t know if he is alive or dead.

7. Sharing a room

Up until I moved out of home at the age of 19 my sister & I shared a room ( the same room) since we were about 8 & 6. My mum has lived in the same two bedroom house since I was in grade 2 and originally when we first move there my mum wasn’t working so she could only afford this little unit & although she is working now she still lives in the same house, which I really like because its the home I grew up in and I have so many memories there.

8. My fiance was my first…

That’s right it wasn’t that I always wanted to wait for the right person but it just kind of happened that way & I am so glad that it did. It means so much more to have been with someone that I am planning to spend the rest of my life with & that it wasn’t just a quick shag with someone who couldn’t care less about me and probably who I would never hear from again.

9. I have fallen out with two of my best friends at different times

So i think I have previously spoken about this but I can’t remember so I thought I would add it in, I fell out with both my high school best friend of about 6 years & also my best friend of three years that I met through my fiance. Both for very different reasons, my high school friend was due to her and my fiance not getting along and getting off to the wrong thing and she believes that I chose him over her so we didn’t talk for about a year a half but have re-kindled our friendship about a year ago were not the same as we were but we are at least friends. The second bestfriend was due to some issues that didn’t relate to our friendship but to hers and our other friends and from there we just stopped talking and then she didn’t attend my 21st birthday I alter found out this was because she had found out she was pregnant but I just kind of stopped trying or messaging her & she did the same and we just didn’t speak for about 4-5 years, again we have been talking again for about the past 2 or so years and are back to being friends again.

10. Fear of Dying

So I am sure some people have this same fear but I have it on the next level, I am constantly paranoid about dying that I wont take public transport anymore, I really don’t like flying (which is a probably why I will never go to the states) & I always have to have the house locked up because I get afraid that someone will break in and kill me. The thought of dying petrifies me to the point where I hate being at home at night on my own. I do plan on speaking to someone about my fear & anxiety as I know its not normal for me to feel this way I feel like it stemmed from having my cousin die unexpectedly when he was 17 and I think (as i was the same age) that you’re not always guaranteed tomorrow and just because you’re young doesn’t mean you can’t die.

So there you have it, thats 10 things you didn’t know about me!!!

Please leave 1 fact about you that not many people know as I would love to get to know you all better.

Until next time
