 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!

Just relax

I think that the hardest thing to do in this world is just too truly and utterly 100% relax. The last month or so have been really hard for me, I’m living pretty much pay check to check this past month. This usually happens to me twice a year. Usually a month before the busy times at my work happens. It’s part of the reason I am looking for something more permanent.

Even though when I’m on holidays and planned ones, I will still worry…Maybe I shouldn’t have taken that week off, maybe I shouldn’t have bought that extra chocolate bar. It can get very overwhelming sometimes. Especially when I start to get upset at myself for buying that little extra treat.

I find the hardest thing to do is to my forgive myself. That’s when my head gets all messed up and I have to try and control my mind so I don’t get so upset that it gets me down all day. So I didn’t mean for this to become a kind of depressing post. I just wanted to share with you what I try to do to cheer myself up that either costs nothing or costs very little.

Books: Books are a great way to cheer myself up and a few other people too I do believe. The great thing about books is that they can actually be really cheap, and sometimes free if you know what you’re doing! Join a Library-Not only do they end up getting a lot of the newest books for you to borrow for free, a lot of Libraries will take requests for new books. A lot of Libraries also have books sales where they sell a lot of different items (not just books) at a heavily discounted price. Just recently I bought three dvds of movies I’ve been wanting for a while now for $6.00 ($2.00 each).

Walking/Dancing: I love to dance and lately I have been taking my dog for even more walks. When I go back to my Mums house, I feel like I NEED to take my dog for a walk, even though she’s little and we play a lot inside. Not only can both walking and dancing be done for free, but they both also release endorphin.

D.I.Y: I always find that over the years you tend to build up a collection of things that need to be done around the house. Now this can be expensive if you do it all in one go. Sometimes I find as well though when you think of the D.I.Y. projects that need to be done you go out and get that stuff. So over time it all builds up, including the materials you need for the project.

Series watching: Now what I mean by this is when you have a favourite television series and you just sit and watch it all day, or at least have it on in the background. Now this is a great idea for relaxing because watching or even just listening to a favourite show, has shown to relax and calm the mind down. I know myself, personally, I cannot fall asleep if I’ve watched something traumatic or some kind of horror film. One of the great things about this option is that there are so many different ways you can do this. Some retail outlet these days will have a deal, for example, 3 DVDS for only $30 (I recently did this one). Let alone the new streaming services. Which do cost a bit more money than a one-off, however, you can get great deals.

I did nearly put a bath in, to relax,…but the reason that I didn’t. It ultimately leads to your overall water bill and if you are anything like me. I usually end up staying in the bath for about 15 minutes. My partner can spend literally hours, but I just cannot do it.

Let’s Share!

Crafternoon!

I cannot believe that I have not written about this before! About once a month myself and a group of girls (although guys are very welcomed to join us as well) and we do crafts! This can be anything from sewing, making little clay-type characters, colouring in (for those who have come with a hangover)…Anything!

The reason for my post today is that I am looking for ideas for my current project. I recently bought a unique figurine for a beautiful little dragon, it’s no bigger than average size of a women’s hand. I have decided to make a little nest for it, in my room…YAY to inner child! I’ve got the basket I want for it and I am going to be making it a little more nesty….BUT…I have no idea what I should put in there as well?

Any ideas?

Study! How to

I am in the middle of a huge research project so this isn’t going to be a huge “Fact Friday” today. What a better topic to write about though than studying! It’s a massive fact of life, at some point everybody will be in school…Or even schooling from the school of life! Which I think it is a completely legitimate school in itself.

So how do you study? Do you need completely quiet, can you study in a noisy workplace. Personally I need something quietly playing in the background while I’m studying. Is it’s too quiet my mind will start to wander and wonder, if it’s too loud I can’t concentrate on the studying.

WikiHow has some great ideas on how to study. They give advice on how to study alone and studying in a group.

College Humor have created this really funny parody about studying.
