  • Find some low cholesterol recipes…I went to the doctors and my cholesterol is a bit high, so over the next month they want me to lower it. It has been amazing after that and looking at the actual packaging on food, how much sodium there is in everything! I need to sit down and look up/write some recipes.

I did manage to lower my cholesterol. Unfortunately, it wasn’t really enough. After some talking with my Doctor and realising half my family suffer from high cholesterol. I’ve been put on these tablets that are supposed to help lower it. I just have to keep up with healthy eating.

  • I’ve decided that I’m going to have a “slumber pj movie night” for my birthday, it’s going to be held in the first weekend of May.

I did this too! I had such a good time and all without drinking either! I still felt really bad the next morning. After eating well for a month, eating a whole bunch of bad food in one night…Probably not my smartest plan! I learnt a lot about one of my favourite musicals as well “Phantom of the Opera”

  • For my birthday I am going to look into having a “make your own smoothie” bar, since I can’t really drink. See how I can have movies and games at the same time.

I did this as well and I bought a whole bunch of almond milk and different fruits. Then the people who were all interested in having the smoothies, didn’t even end up coming! I ended up having over the next few days, otherwise, what a waste of fruit! They were really good, but I think smoothies are better for Summer time, not cold weather.

  • Maybe…Maybe looking at hiring outdoor furniture for my partners house for my birthday…Maybe…

We didn’t really do this one. However, my partner liked my idea of bean bags and he ended up buying two and now he wont get out of them!lol

  • Look for a frame that will fit 4 A4 size pictures in…Maybe ask for one for my birthday,lol

Although I did not find a frame. I have come up with a plan. I’ve got a black sheet of paper, and I am going to get people to write on it over time. Then when I put the pictures in the frame, I will use the black sheet of paper behind the pictures. In years time, if I take the pictures out, I’ve got all these lovely messages and quotes.

  • Try Winter jeans/pants on, make sure that they still fit.

I have been doing that and I have been finding that they are fitting. Since though the last month or so, I have been lowering my cholesterol. Since then I’ve lost weight and now all the jeans are just that little bit baggy on me…You can never win!lol

Nearly there with this one…It will definitely be up by next week!

What color do you feel most comfortable wearing?

This is an interesting question because there is actually a colour that I really love to wear, but normally when I’m feeling a bit more extroverted. I like to wear red when I’m feeling a bit “extra”, but I cannot wear it when I’m feeling shy. So this is a really interesting question. I do have this kind of awareness, that certain colours can project certain emotions. When I’m at work for example as well, I tend to wear, not all black, but darker colours. Colours like purples, blues. I do have a green top and I love the colouring of the green, but I haven’t been brave enough to wear it anywhere.

What is your favorite type of dog? (can be anything from a specific breed, a stuffed animal or character in a movie)

Although I do have and have had Pomeranian and Chihuahuas as the only dogs that we have ever had. The type of dogs that I have always wanted is either a Husky, or a Rottweiler. They just always seems like really sweet dogs especially when they are properly taken care. However, I will probably never get one because I know that they would be a lot to handle, I’m too laid back really.

List at least five favorite flowers or plants.

  1. Roses (I know, cliche)
  2. Lilies…I know they are the “death flower” but they are so gorgeous!
  3. Cherry Blossoms…They are so beautiful!
  4. I actually kind of like cactus, they are sort of weirdly beautiful.
  5. There’s nothing better than a big old oak.

What inspired you this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

I have had a lot happen this week, some good, some not so good…and this all I can think of…A lot of people like being treated like dirt…lol…Not the nicest of inspiration, but it was just something that I’ve noticed. I have always been of the mind of why make your life harder than it already is? I’m starting to wonder if some people actually enjoy it? It has inspired me in the way though that maybe I am normal,lol…I have more of a good self esteem. I might actually write  Blog about some things that have been happening to me this week, because it’s been a really odd week,lol

When you’re alone at home, do you wear shoes, socks, slippers, or go barefoot?

My feet get really cold whether it’s Summer or Winter, I must have really bad circulation or something. If you were to see me at home being myself with no one around I would most likely be wearing socks at the very least, during both warm and cooler weather.

What was your favorite food when you were a child?

I was a weird child, I actually really enjoyed my vegetables and I still enjoy eating Brussels sprouts. It’s funny because I don’t know why but I eat so much more junk food these days, probably something with it to do with being fast and easy ~.^ lol…I’ll enjoy the first couple of bites and then think “Why did I eat that?” Yet, when I eat vegetables or fruit, i seem to enjoy every bite.

Are you a listener or talker?

I am definitely a listener, I’m not sure if it’s because everyone I know is just louder than me or if that’s just the way I am too be honest,lol…It’s probably a little bit of both…I don’t mind being a listener though because I feel like that’s when I learn the most.

Favorite thing to (pick one):  Photograph?  Write? Or Cook?

I guess that I’d have to go with Writing, I love to do it and I really love doing it for myself especially. Every now and then I will just get in a mood and write, and write and write. I do also enjoy taking photos, but mainly of myself, my pets and honestly of scenery. All of which would probably bore a lot of people. Yet, sometimes the scenery pictures also get me motivated to write.

Yes! Just Yes!

I don’t think that I even need to write a whole post about this one!

19 F@#king Infurating things about Women’s clothing! (Buzzfeed Article)

I have actually been trying to get another jumper/sweater that I can just wear around the house (I only really have the one) and I can say that I can completely relate to Number 8,9 and 17 at the moment!

Share Your World … Week 40

  • Why did you start blogging?
  • I honestly started Blogging because of a school project, we had to create some kind of different form of social media and communication. That wasn’t either Facebook or Twitter. We had a good amount of other sites we could have chosen, but I went with WordPress and the rest, as they say, is history.
  • A piece of clothing you still remember?
  • I remember my very first “skort”. If you don’t know what a “skort” is, it’s a skirt that had a pair of shorts underneath, and it was pink. I loved it, but because my Mum did not think it was fashionable enough, she wouldn’t always wash it. My mum used to not wash things of mine if she didn’t like, or very rarely. I think she felt as a single mother that she had to put a certain “look” forward otherwise people would question whether or not she was coping being a single mother.
  • Who are you trying to reach with your blog?
  • I’m not really trying to reach a group or a someone. I feel like this is my safe space, this Blog has made me feel a lot more safer, a lot more confident in what I’m thinking. I guess you might even say that I am trying to reach myself, trying to reach what makes me “me”. Everyone is on that kind of a journey. I just like to learn and share things along the way. I feel like, on here, I am being reached.
  • Is there a stuffed animal in your bedroom?
  • Some people may say that for a 32 year old I have too many stuffed animals in my room! I have slowly been getting rid of them over the last couple of years, and some are in “storage” for my children, later on. Most of the stuffed animals I have, I’ve had since childhood and my teenage years, I’d say 90% of them. Stuffed animals are just great for hugging, and I am extremely private person. I don’t like people worrying about me, especially if they are not the ones that hurt me, so I’ll cry or yell into my stuffed animals.
  • The best birthday present ever?
  • I’m not honestly sure that I can say I have received the best birthday present ever yet. Birthdays are not my favourite things, they tend to disappoint me. I have gotten some nice presents, but I’m not sure I can honestly say that I’ve received a great one. When I first saw this question, nothing really stuck out in my head. I have had some fantastic birthday parties though! Those has been fun, especially my 30th, I wish I could do that every year…If I was rich, I would do it as well.
  • What would surprise me about you?
  • I’m not sure what would honestly surprise people, I’m a pretty open book. I think what would surprise people is how much I’ve been through and what I know is inside of me and how much I fight every day just to feel normal. I told someone once a lot about what had happened to me and then couldn’t get over how nice I am after it all. My tolerance level for what others would consider “mean” and fight back against, seems to be different to a lot of people? One ex, for example, I ended up helping a lot of the girls he cheated one me with, to help get over him. He had made them feel like he was going to break up with me for them, and then he never did. Yet, could not figure why they got so upset with him when he started dating someone else entirely. Things like that, I felt really bad for them, whereas most girls would think they deserve to feel the heartbreak he caused them. A lot had to do with I had accepted the fact that we were just going nowhere with the relationship, and I had been abused in a relationship before. So I felt like he wasn’t a bad person, he was just…an idiot,lol.

What is your favorite part of the town/city you live in.  And what Country do you live?

I love our beaches, we have this beach town and during the Summer it’s such a vibrant place. I love going there as the sun is setting and just looking out over the ocean, it’s amazing. I could walk down the beach at that time of the day forever.

Would you rather wear clown shoes every day or a clown wig every day?

I would definitely want to wear the clown shoes every day, wigs can get so itchy and really uncomfortable, especially during the warmer weather. The shoes I would probably trip over a couple of times…But I do that already anyways!lol.

Which way does the toilet paper roll go? Over or under?

Always over, over! OVER!

What do you do to make a living or during the day?  If you are retired what mostly occupies your day? Or if you are a student what are you studying?

I work casually, I help students enrol into classes, set up their fees, that kind of work. I’m trying to look for more stable work because I want to move in with my partner and I don’t want to be a burden. The work I do, I love the people I work with, but when the season get quieter, I don’t get as much work. I’m also thinking of having some kind of little on-the-side business, something crafty…I’m still thinking about what to do with that.

Mama Preached!

Oh my goodness, normally my Mother pays me out non-stop whenever I buy a dress. Mainly because I buy these gorgeous dresses and then never wear them out. Nearly, at least every third night, I do some online retail window shopping. This night I’ve been looking and showing my mum these gorgeous dresses and outfits….Do you know what my Mum said “Well maybe gorgeous dresses and playsuits, should be your style”.

So pretty much since my Mother gave me her blessing I’ve already bought two!lol

Do you have a “style”? What would you call your style?

I’m going to see if this just wearing gorgeous dresses whenever I go out anywhere, works out for me!

Please don’t hate me!

I am sure by now you have seen or you are going to see a lot of these today:

3 month, Christmas

What a scary thought, huh!

The last few years, I’ve had the same plan and it’s worked for me every single year. I start putting away $20-$50 every fortnight at least, during June. Then when August begins I start buying just little bits and pieces. So here I’ll just post a few links of some great Christmas presents ideas. Some of they are pretty expensive, but they are a little different to the “norm”. Sometimes thinking outside-the-box, can help you get some more ideas!

(You may find that a few of these are kind of “geeky” nerdy ideas =P)
