    Ayr Vaping – Quitting Smoking and it’s benefits.

    Quitting smoking is probably one of the best things you can do for your health. As a smoker myself, it’s something that always crosses my mind but I never actually manage to do it or even try for that matter. When I was pregnant with Dinky, quitting smoking was the easiest thing to do because I had him to quit for, not just myself. So why did I start again? That first night away from the baby that you so desperately need. He was about three months old and it was his first time staying at my parents away from me. I was invited to a friend’s birthday party and…

    To the poor woman I witnessed get hit by a car today..

    Let me just start by saying I truly hope you’re okay. You’re being treated by an incredible team and I can’t wait to see your face again at the surgery. Let me explain. I was sat outside work today having a cigarette and I was enjoying the sunshine and the fresh air when I happened to glance over at you on your familiar red moped. I saw you take off from the junction to cross the roundabout and I saw that car speed into you. I heard the crash and I heard your scream. I saw your moped skid across the floor. I instantly and dialled for help, I shouted…

    Your looks won’t pierce his strength.

    It’s no secret that Dinky is currently going through a diagnosis for autism. I’ve known from a very early age that he would be. All of these are phrases I loathe. He doesn’t look like he has autism.. No it’s not a physical deformity, it’s a mental condition. So no, he doesn’t look any different to what you consider “normal”. In fact he is a gorgeous, happy, cheerful looking child. He’s fine.. No actually he’s not. He needs constant reassurance, a whole week planned out in advance. He needs everything to go as scheduled. He needs me to block out strange noises, he needs to repeat things, he needs to relive…

    Miss Pork Pie’s Make Up – MUA totally nude lipstick review

    I have always found it hard to find lipstick that actually looks good on me! I have quite plump lips naturally and I’m very aware how much they stand out on their own, never mind with lippy on! I also have very red skin due to my psoriasis so I don’t really like wearing too much red, otherwise I end up looking like a tomato. I managed to pick up a super sexy nude lippy last week from MUA. I went for the totally nude shade which really suits my skin colour. Even better, it was £1.00! Who can argue at that?! It’s fairly long lasting and glides on my lips so nicely. The coverage…

    I challenge YOU to better yourself.

    Who’s up for a challenge? I’ve been a yo-yo dieter for years now. I’ve tried everything from weight watchers to slim fast, slim pod, slimming world, crash diets, boot camp and even “magic” pills. None of these worked for me because I felt like I couldn’t eat certain things. After a few days or weeks of eating like a rabbit I would give in and binge out on crap. I’ve been feeling like I’m always going to be overweight, and for a while I’ve not really cared too much until recently when I saw some photos of myself at a family get together. I felt sick looking at how bad…
