Dear people on the beach in Nice...

I have been absent in my blog lately due to my own reasons, but I am saddened daily by what I read and hear in the news almost daily and most things I choose to not comment, hoping I would never need to comment.

I can only imagine the fear, anger, sadness and embarassment of being made to strip on a beach surrounded by people... 

I am so sad that us as women are being labelled by what we choose to wear.. 

A woman on the beach fully covered does not make her a terrorist.. She is simply dressing for the religion she has chosen for herself, maybe we should start telling every woman who is covered up due to religious reasons that they too need to undress... Whilst you are at it maybe get some of the more undressed ones to cover up abit more?? 

I would like to know where all the support was on the beach? 

Surely not everyone suspected this lady of being a terrorist? 

The idea that the burkini is linked to terrorism is ludicrous... Such a shame that this is where France is at. 
Why are we still forcing women to wear or not wear certain clothing? 

Am I just sitting by and seeing all this go on? Are you?  Or can I be more proactive in my thoughts...  Can you? 

How did you stay so silent? 

To the woman on the beach... I'm sorry.

1st Sunday Somethings of the Oh so pretty August...


Wow what a week it's been, I can't believe how dull the start of this week was... Seriously felt like we should be getting ready for Christmas... And it made me realise I need to invest in some new slippers sharpish....

To start off the things I'm loving....

1) Yesterday we touched down in Cornwall, perfection... A whole week with him,my girls,my mum, dad, brother and my brothers girlfriend... 
We love it here and I am planning on completely switching off from "normal life"


2) Loving my new tea storage....
I need to fill the slots up now... The matcha green tea is a firm favourite but I am also loving womankind 




3) The Only Way Is Essex
I don't even care how lame this makes me... I love the drama.. Easy to watch and easy to get sucked in... 

4) Daily smoothies 
The past 2 weeks Mum and I have been making a smoothie for our lunch, they are really filling and surprisingly delicious.. No naughty lunches for us... 



Hope you all have a lovely week, I'm really enjoying taking 5 minutes to reflect and think about a few things that I have really enjoyed in the past week.

August goals and changes

This is definitely the month I sort myself out... (Again)

Power of positive thinking... 



purchased 2 books this week and hoping they will help me on my journey. 



Ella from the Lucky truth is doing a challenge to change your life.This inspired me so I have also joined in on the 30 day challenge which I will be doing slightly differently, they say it takes 30 days to form a new habit or change an old one....

I


This month will be my starting block, starting small and working my way to a bigger and better life for us all.

For a start I am going to be ditching one bad habit of mine....

Pepsi max... I have to have this everyday it's my treat rather than stuffing chocolate chip cookies I have Pepsi max, it's not at all good for you.. It shouldn't be a reward... It's gone! (And so are the cookies) 

And finally for this month...
Write a note/text message to someone everyday telling them that I care and mentioning something good about them... 


I feel that we so often focus on the negative that the positives just pass us by... We need to stop doing that,it won't take me long and we really need to tell those closest more often just how much we love them. 

Ramble almost over, as the months go on I will increase my challenges but with this month being the first I thought a couple of easy but still positive changes will be a good start. 

Have you ever thought of doing a 30 day challenge? 

Xxxxx
