My perfect date night…

When it comes to date nights, ill be honest I’m easily pleased.

Give me a night at home with a good horror movie, a takeaway, pop and some chocolate. I’m happy. Yep, it really is that simple, maybe with an added extra of a few candles around the room.  I don’t think there is anything better than a night in with just you and your partner.

Laid on the sofa with the lights out and the duvet/blanket, phones switched off. No phones, no social media and no messages or phone calls, simply to make the night more personal to just me and him, this way there aren’t any distractions and I know we both have each other’s full attention which is what a date night is all about.

I’m very lucky in the sense that both I and my partner are very homely people. We both don’t drink and if we do it’s only either for a special occasion or a once in a blue moon night out. This also would make it easy when we have a family as we know what a date night could be like for us and we wouldn’t really need a babysitter to make sure we had some alone time.

What would your ideal date night be?

Can i eat this?

Would it be wrong to eat my lip scrub?

I was never have used a lip scrub, I have generally just made my own with lip balm and a little bit of sugar. I guess though there does come a time when its time to buy a proper lip scrub and it was that time for me. I didn’t want to buy one that cost too much in case I didn’t like it, so I stayed cheap and with a brand, I know has never failed me on anything else. Barry’M.

Barry’M have 2 lip scrubs out that I know of a peppermint one and a mango one. I chose the mango one out of the two as I’m not the biggest fan of peppermint if I’m honest and oh wow, the taste that you get on your lips is very flavourful. They cost a little £4.99 each which I think is a highly reasonable price for the product.  I used the scrub once and I was in love with it. You don’t need to use a large amount of it when using it, the smallest amount does have the job done perfectly.

When you are wearing matte lipsticks or any other dry lipsticks, your lips really do take all they could, especially when you aren’t using anything to help hydrate them once again. I took it to the point where my lips were beginning to feel dry daily and I still did nothing about it. Until now, finally, when putting lipstick on again it looks more flawless than what it did when I had dryer lips.

What’s your favourite lip scrub?

Explaining my Tattoos.. Part 4

For my fourth tattoo, I have Stitch on a flower with Ohana wrote above it.

Now anyone who knows me knows I am completely obsessed with Stitch from the Disney movie Lilo and Stitch. I have so many teddies of him and little figures so why wouldn’t I get him on me for life? If you have seen the film, you will know that Ohana means family, and family means no one gets left behind or forgotten. My Family is my entire life and couldn’t imagine my life without them; I would do anything for them without question or thinking about it. No matter where I live or how old I am they will always come first over anyone.

What I do when I lose motivation…

Losing motivation for blogging can be hard.

When you sit down and log into your blog, the next thing you know a half hour has passed you by and you haven’t even done anything but sign on to your blog. It then all of a sudden dawns on you that you don’t know what you are doing and the motivation you thought you had has disappeared. In the end, you close the laptop a little frustrated with yourself.

Whenever this happens it what you do next that helps you regain that motivation and love your blog for what you have made it. Here’s what i do:

  • Stay away from my blog at least for a few days.
  • Read other peoples blogs, maybe find a little inspiration.
  • Don’t get frustrated that I can’t write.
  • Take some time and pamper me.
  • Read a book to help myself relax.
  • Have some family time.

Before I lose any motivation there are steps I try and put in place so that my blog doesn’t feel any effect of it:

  • Schedule at least 2 or more weeks of blog posts at all times.
  • Schedule tweets to promote those posts that will go live.
  • Have blog post title’s drafted just in case opening up my blog and seeing the empty post with a titles helps me.

I know that my motivation will come back to me and it generally will always come back to me before that last scheduled post has gone live, which means I am always in time to catch my blog before it sees a missed post.

What’s your way to refind motivation for something you love?
