‘Little’ Boots Haul..

beccapbeauty blog always keeps you up to date on the latest beauty trends!


Not that I ever need an excuse to nip into Boots, but at least I had a valid one this time. I had a voucher to use, and my goodness, I was fast to use it. I went in knowing 2 things I wished to get, the rest, well the rest just kinda happened.. ooops.

Eyelure Brow Shapers (£2.69, Boots)
This is one of the items I did actually go in for, I’ve had them before in the past and decided this year I really need to start looking after my brows properly again. I can get so lazy with them, as I’m sure many of us do. Thankfully though messy brows are in so at least nobody pays too much attention when we’re having those bushy brow days. The pack contains three sheets of pre-waxed strips, these are to be used to get rid of all those…

Transforming Personal Trauma and Devastation into Drive and a Sheer Will to Succeed.

Didioviatt has a blog worth reading

Didi Oviatt -Author

Something that most of my readers don’t know about me is that I struggled very severely to have children.  It was during my stubborn quest to make it through multiple miscarriages that I found my love for writing.  After my fifth miscarriage we were able to make my sixth pregnancy a success. I gave birth prematurely (after much bed-rest and struggle) to my son Cannon. He is perfect and we thank God every single day for the miracle we were given with his birth. He is now 4.

After having Cannon I suffered two more miscarriages before the delivery of my daughter Kimber. She is now a healthy little spite-fire two year old, and we absolutely adore everything about her. The entire journey was very lengthy, intense, as well as physically and emotionally painful in every way. I actually considered writing a memoir in contribution to miscarriage awareness, as…

Every So Often

Have a glimpse into ohellino the poet


Every so often
My heart would soften
And I would learn to listen
But then my heart would harden
I’d say “I beg your pardon”
And the sweat on my head would glisten

Every so often
I envision a coffin
And myself with a rose inside
They tell me it’s sorted
So I shouldn’t be so morbid
And it shouldn’t be me who has died

Every so often
I begin coughin’
And wish I never smoked in my life
I applaud the new me
And spit out loogie
Scrape it off the couch with a knife

Every so often
I go shopping
And pick up things to eat that are nutritious
I pull it all out
And shove it all in my mouth
And say out loud to no one “that was delicious”

Yellow Bourbon E-
Ethiopia Yirgacheffe
as well

their green beans turn
to brown
in the oily smoke
with a cra-cra-
crackling sound

over the stove-top
it’s Espresso
that gets me

here’s a batch
of beans
green-to-brown them
turn the heat


grind them
start the day right
the bubbling growl

give me give me give me
don’t make
a grown man …

a-a-a      a-wooooo

a-a      a-wooooo

don’t make a grown man

a-wooooo woo-woo-woo

Life as Chloe Lauren

19360268Title: Banish Your Self Esteem Thief

Author: Kate Collins-Donnelly

Publisher: Jessica Kingsley Publishers

‘Packed with activities and real-life stories, this imaginative workbook will show you what self-esteem is, how it develops, the impact it can have and how all this applies to your own self-esteem. Using cognitive behavioural and mindfulness principles and techniques, this workbook will help you change how you think and act in order to build positive self-esteem, protect your Self-Esteem Vault and banish your Self-Esteem Thief for good!’


As part of the libraries ‘Reading Well’ scheme, I picked up this book to see if it would help me at all with my self esteem issues, because for a long time I would, and still do, look at myself and see nothing but ugly and someone who is worthless. After reading this though, I think there has been a noticeable improvement! I am not fully there, but…
