I'm a firm believer in having a good balance of being social and having me time, but sometimes that me time just translates in to 'sit and feel sorry for me' time which I'm not really down with. I like to have a positive vibe but sometimes I let little things build up and it's taken me a long time to realise that's it's okay to be annoyed about something small. Everyone's situations are different and there will always, always be someone worse off than you but you know what, it's okay to get upset if you smash your phone screen, if your coffee leaks and ruins the only handbag and purse you have in the country, If you haven't seen your other half for months or even if someone says something a bit shitty to you at work for no reason but as cliché as it is, tomorrow really is another day. The real issue is how you deal with these things, I let myself mope for a little bit but then I like to reclaim my alone time to think about all the little moments in life that make me feel great.

I'm a firm believer that the music you listen too can affect your mood significantly and I like to have a playlist for every mood. Feeling a bit down, I put on my positive playlist and dance about till I feel better, need a good cry, there's my heartbreakers playlist and for when I need to kick ass whilst I workout I have girl power/get those squats done playlist. That's all a bit extreme for a Sunday Morning though so for that I like to listen to something a bit more relaxing.
At the moment I seem to be listening to a lot of Ed Sheeran's older stuff but I feel like that always happens when an artist brings out new material, it jog's my memory and I then I start to remember all of the songs I used to love but just haven't thought to listen to in a while, which in itself brings back so many lovely memories. So this playlist has a lot of throwback songs but It's been so nice to reminisce while listening to them and it's just the kind of background music I need while I sit and sip my coffee and catch up on all my blog reading. Hope you all Enjoy!

Sometimes I have weeks where lots of little things happen that bring me down little by little, where everything adds up and I just don't feel ready to face the world and it's these times that I feel the best thing I can do is take a little bit of time to think about the little things that lift me up. These post's are actually some of my favourites to write up as the always put me in a positive place to face the week even if no amount of coffee will ever make me ready to face a Monday Morning.

All photo's are my own except for the top left which is by the lovely @Sykereasy on Instagram.
This is going to be a rambling post so I suggest you get yourself a nice cuppa and a cosy little reading spot. I'm making an effort to blog more this year and also to write more on a personal level as opposed to ode's to my new lipstick. Which don't get me wrong, you'll still get some of those kind's of post's, I think my love of pretty thing's is just an integral part of my personality now but I want to take this blog in a different direction and share thing's that are important to me.
2016 was a strange year, I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels this way, In some ways everything is the same but in others' it feels like so much has happened and I fell that this time next year the world may have changed a lot more than we can imagine. On a personal level I'm in a completely different place than I was this time last year, I mean I'm literally living in a different country but also in the way I feel about certain things and about myself. I've also been thinking about what could have caused this change in my mindset and I realised that this past year has taught me a lot.
