July Goals

This month is very much about getting things that I’ve gotten together and actually start using and creating with them!

  • Get a Yoga Schedule – Focus mainly on strengthen my sciatica.
  • Make a budget. I don’t know how but somehow even though my anxiety has lessened and I’ve been able to start catching buses again. Somehow I spent more money than when I’d caught taxis? Makes no sense!
  • Create some healthy winter recipes.

CREATE!!!

Walk with Lolly

I have an Instagram account … I will probably be going to back to Lady Lolsy by the way…I typed Lady Lolly into Google and there’s another Lady Lolly out there…I think she’s an adult film actress.

Anyways…On my Instagram account I have taken up walking and making stories, while I’m walking on Instagram. I’ve been usually doing them on Friday nights after work, but it all depends on when I’m working. This week I’m not working (so far) on the Friday. However, I find that these stories I do encourage me to go walking anyways. So I will be keeping up with them. If you click on the link above to can follow me. If you don’t have an Instagram account, you can see my pictures but I don’t think you can see the stories?

Fairy Loot Unboxing!

Last week I received my very first FairyLoot box and I decided I was going to hop on the bandwagon and create a video for you. I have to say that I LOVED the box and every single in them! Do not watch my video if you have not received your FairyLoot box yet!

Check it out! It took me forever to put it together because I decided to record the video from my phone for the first time as well. Although the quality is better, it just took me forever to upload and edit it.

As well as on my video I have linked you to all the suppliers from the month’s FairyLoot so that you can check them out on here as well as on my video.!

Fury Born Review

FuryBorn

The Break Down:

Angels are Demons, and chosen ones seem to always fall to the dark side. You are taken along on the journey of two different female protagonist. You realise fairly early on who is who and who they are supposed too. It’s very much about the demon and angel within us all and how the choices we make affect us and those around us.

Positive Review:

I enjoyed most of this book. I think it definitely written for a young audience, I think it’s written for your Young Adult audience. The introduction was fantastic and it really will drag you in and make you want to keep reading. I always love a book that can drag me in to start with. The challenge is always keeping the reader interesting the rest of the way…

Negative Review:

Which then leads me to my negative review…The parts of the book that did frustrate me was the repetitiveness of the chapters. The same theme happening over and over again. I’m afraid to say that it became boring after a couple of chapters. I was hoping for something more.  I wish that instead of Rielle fighting with another element, every single chapter and nothing really that much more. It could have been condensed into a couple of longer chapters instead. I felt like it was dragging on and it didn’t need to be. I became one of those people who briefly read the ending just to make sure something does happen at the end.

My Breakdown:

It starts off SO well. I can’t express how much the beginning of this book got me involved into it. I wanted to know everything about everyone, by the 6th chapter I felt like I knew where the story was going. The rest of the book felt a bit too dragged out.  Then as you head towards the ending of the book, it drags you back in again and it feels like it is going somewhere. I will be getting the book in the next series, but possibly I’ll borrow it from the Library first.

So, this happened

 NEW WEBSITE!

Lollys Library

I am so excited to finally get to share this with you all!

I have been working on this for the last couple of months, just setting up. This first week I will be scheduling posts that explain what each category will be. Then I guess I will be really open for business!

This is probably the most brave thing that I have ever done!

I mainly wanted to do it because when I looked at other Bloggers websites, they just seemed so organised and they all had a really nicely layout. I feel like my Blog can, at times, be a bit messy. Which is fine for just generally blogging, but I want to start doing others things with this Blog.

I’m hoping to eventually attach a store to my Blog, where I plan on selling, at the moment, candles. I just LOVE candles! However when I try to buy them online, they are just SO expensive. I figured why not then, make my own, as time has gone on. I started to think, why not share my creations? I’ve made too many and nowhere to put them!lol…For future projects I’m hoping to add more. I’ve been looking into designing cups and mugs. I think of so many myself, and so many quotes and sayings I think of while drinking a cup of tea/coffee…Why not put them on a cup, instead of just keeping them to myself!

Safe Spaces

Now, I’m not writing about the ones that the Republicans and hard core righters seem to think they are something to make fun. They are interesting things to think about, aren’t they? I was just thinking about this over the weekend. I find it easier to fall asleep with at my partners house, but I find it easier to wake up at my own house.

Safe spaces are definitely not something to make fun of.

I am also finding that my work just in general works for me as well. I think because it helps to keep myself distracted, instead of thinking…thinking……and thinking. Not only do I have different rooms, but just different spaces and things as well. My plushie Savannah and Mufasa, whenever I hug them, I always feel better. Sometimes I will just hug them and not let go for a while. I have a couple of meditation and anxiety apps that I can listen to anywhere, so I guess those are “safe spaces” too?
