What I've Been Up to | Sunday Thoughts

Hi everyone! I hope you are having a lovely weekend. I can't believe how warm it is outside today, it's so nice out. My mum and I went for a ride out today, we took some lunch with us and then sat next to the river while we ate. I love going out and exploring. Sometimes the most beautiful places are right next to you. On the way to where we went, we drove along the river and passed fields of horses, cows and sheep. It was so relaxing and even better with the warm weather. I'm so excited to share with you another Sunday Thoughts post. For todays Sunday Thoughts, I thought that I would share with you what I have been up to lately. 

My boyfriend Chris had the week off work so it was really nice to spend some time together. On Friday we decided to go out to the zoo. We went to Twycross zoo. It's been so long since I've been to that zoo. I loved going when I was little. I had a great time looking at all of the animals, especially the Gorillas! One of my other favourite bits was feeding the birds. You go into this building where there are beautiful birds flying about and you can buy a little pot of nectar to give them. As soon as I walked through the door they come flying down to get the nectar. At one point I had one on my shoulder and two on my arm.

Having Anxiety and OCD

When someone asks me how I am, my immediate reply is 'I'm good thank you.' To be completely honest with you I'm not always fine, but I can't find the words to say that. I suffer from OCD and anxiety. Although I quite openly talk about my other health problems, I have POTS Syndrome and Interstitial Cystitis. OCD and anxiety is something that I struggle to talk to people about.

Oh My Cod | Gluten Free Fish and Chips Review

Hi everyone! I hope you are having a lovely day today. For todays blog post, I want to share with you something very delicious. As some of you may know I am unable to have dairy and gluten and one thing that I have missed having so much over the last few years are some proper fish and chips form a fish and chip shop. I sometimes make my own using frozen free from breaded fish from the supermarket with some homemade chips, but you really can't beat some good fish and chips from an actual fish and chip shop! I recently found an article online that was also in my local paper about Oh My Cod, which is in Spalding, Lincolnshire, are doing gluten free fish and chips! I was so happy, as Spalding finally has a chip shop that does gluten free, I have been waiting a very long time for this!

StickerShop | Review

Hi everyone! I hope you are having a lovely day so far. Fingers crossed the sun comes out again. It was lovely this morning, but unfortunately the sun is hiding again at the moment. But as it has been a bit brighter I made sure that I got some more blog photos taken! The rest of my week is going to consist of finishing off my audio project and dissertation for University. Todays post is something a little bit different, I want to share with you these amazing printed stickers from StickerShop*. How amazing to have your own blog header/button turned into a sticker. Such a great thing to have. I absolutely love them. As soon as I was contacted and asked if I would like to review some I immediately said yes.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Wash | Review

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Mine was spent relaxing and catching up on shows on Netflix. I've also just started watching 13 Reasons Why, which is really good. My boyfriend is currently on holiday from work, so it's nice to just spend some time together. I've also managed to join in with more Twitter chats over the weekend too, which is something I have really missed doing. 

Todays post is something I haven't done in a while, a skin care post. Quite some time ago I did a post on the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water, this time I am doing it on the Garnier Micellar Cleansing gel. Ever since I tried the micellar cleansing water I have been a huge fan, I have been using it for a couple of years now. I love it, especially as it is perfume free, I always make sure that all of my skin care products for my face doesn't contain any perfume as I have quite sensitive skin. I wanted to write this post because I love this cleansing wash so much and I highly recommend checking it out. This post is in no way sponsored, I really do love this product!

My Favourite shows on Netflix | Sunday Thoughts

Today I just have this urge to write on my blog. I'm actually really, really happy about it. Lately I have felt quite low in confidence and along with my anxiety, I just haven't been blogging as much as I would like to have done. I've had a few new posts out recently but nowhere near as many as I would have liked. So far I've been spending the day reading blogs and it's just gave me that little bit extra inspiration and motivation to write this blog post. If you've read some of my blog posts in the past, you will know that for a few Sunday's I started my Sunday Thoughts series. It was a post that I shared what I have been upto, what I've been loving and also some of my recent blog posts. It was also a post where I shared the things that have made me feel happy. It's actually a weekly series that I have wanted to bring back for quite some time now, I also got some lovely comments on my Sunday Thought posts. So here it is... my first Sunday Thoughts post of 2017 and definitely not the last, this time I want to stick to it.

Follow Me Down by Sherri Smith | Book Review

Hi everyone! I hope you are having a lovely weekend. I can't believe with are now in April! It's also April Fools day too. I have seen quite a few April Fools jokes already and some I did fall for! I did also want to spend today taking photos for my blog, but unfortunately todays weather is nothing like yesterdays. It looks like it is going to rain! Yesterday was so lovely out and quite warm. Hopefully we will have some more nice weather coming. At the moment I'm snuggles up on my bed in my dressing gown typing and eating cookies! Maybe just a few too many cookies! 

There are so many amazing books out there at the moment and I have got lots more book reviews coming soon. I've got a little pile either side of my bed waiting to be read, I'm just so excited to read them. I'm slowing getting there with my Goodreads book goal! How many books have you read this year so far? On to todays book review...
