The Bucket List Tag. Tag Tuesday. πŸŒŽπŸ„

image

Hello everyone, it’s time for another Tag Tuesday. Hurray! Today I am doing the Bucket List tag. I originally found these questions on a relatives facebook and I thought they looked like a lot of fun to answer. Since I don’t tend to participate in the facebook games, I thought why not bring it over to the blog and make a tag out of it? I’ve deleted a few of the questions for the sake of a shorter yet sweeter post, but full credit goes to whoever created this game / tag on facebook. ☺️

THE BUCKET LIST.

1. Fired a gun? – No.
2. Gone on a blind date? – Nope! I think it would be quite fun so maybe I’ll have to get someone to set me up πŸ˜‹
3. Skipped school? – Yeah loads πŸ™Š and I still passed all my exams, except aditional science. Let’s not talk about additional science…
4. Given birth? – No.
5. Visited Caribbean? – Nope.
6. Visited Mexico? – Yes! For about twenty minutes πŸ™Š We crossed the border from America and found ourselves in the slums. We filled our car with petrol and left straight away. I would love to visit Mexico again and go to the more touristy locations, but it was cool to see the less common travel areas too!

18. Been skinny dipping? – Basically πŸ™Š
19. Abseiled down a building/cliff? – No!

Qotd πŸ’•πŸ’ Make everyone feel like a somebody.

“Be somebody who makes everybody feel like a somebody”. πŸ’–

I hope I can make everyone I love feel important, special and valued. The way they deserve to feel.

I aim to make everyone I already know and those who I meet in the future, feel appreciated and valued.

I think this quote / motto is an important one to think about and remember often.

Treat people how you wish to be treated. ❀️

Tag Tuesday ❀️ I love sleep πŸ˜΄

image

Hey guys ❀️ Gosh it feels ages since I have done a Tag Tuesday – I work every Tuesday and usually I’m too tired when I get home to post πŸ™Š But I wrote up all my answers on my lunch break today at work to be prepared πŸ’ͺ🏼 Today I am doing the ‘I love sleep’ tag which is so relevant to my life since I love sleep more than ever now I’m working full time.

Here are the questions ❀️

1. What time do you go to bed? – On a work night I will usually be in bed for around 10pm and I will usually fall asleep pretty much straight away, unless I get distracted by social media 😜 I go to bed a lot earlier these days because working full time makes me sleepy 😴
2. What is your routine before going to sleep? – I always brush my teeth and cleanse my face, then I’ll relax in bed for a while and scroll through facebook, twitter and instagram. I sometimes write down a to do list for the next day, and sometimes a list of three different things I want the next day to bring. Then I will set my alarm and make up random scenarios in my head until I fall asleep. ☺️
3. What do you do when you can’t sleep? – I will go online and check social media – which really is the worst thing to do when you can’t sleep! I’ll sometimes listen to music or if I’m feeling a little more energetic then I will read.
3. What is your favorite sleeping position? – On my side all snuggled up. πŸ’•
4. What can I wake you up for? – Unless Joe Hart’s bringing me breakfast in bed, I’m not waking up for anything.. πŸ’š
5. When/what time does your alarm go clock go off? – On a work day it will go off at around 630 – 7am but I ALWAYS snooze it until 7:20. I like to have time to relax and appreciate the comfort of my bed before leaving it for the day. If I’m not working and have nothing planned I set my alarm for 9, but usually I wake up before that πŸ˜‹
6. Snooze or getting up instantly? – Snooze snooze snooze the alarm!
7. Do you sleep-in over the weekends? – I sleep in until around 9am or sometimes 10am on my days off, not necessarily the weekends. I don’t like to stay in bed for too long because I feel it’s a waste of a day and I can’t sleep that late anyway now because I’m used to waking up early.
8. What kind of weird stuff do you do while you are asleep? – If I’m having a really funny dream then I wake myself up by laughing. One second I’ll be laughing in my sleep the next I’ll be awake giggling away to myself. πŸ˜‚
9. How many pillows do you have? – 2.
10. What do you wear for bed? – PJ’s.
11. Do you sleep with or without socks? – Without!
12. What size/how big is your bed? – Double πŸ€— And I’m not sharing it πŸ™…πŸ»
13. The first thing I do when I wake up in the morning is….? – Check my phone πŸ™Š
14. Do you dream every night? – Yes. I absolutely love dreaming especially when it’s a really great dream πŸ‘πŸΌ
15. What dream or nightmare can you remember? – I seem to remember most of my dreams really well, even if they aren’t that significant they just stick in my mind. The worst dreams I have are ones that involve my loved ones dying πŸ˜” The best ones are the ones where I dream I’ve met someone like Joe Hart or Caspar Lee πŸ˜‹
16. What is your biggest dream? – To be a billionaire πŸ’Έ and to fall in love and be in a happy, wonderful relationship. ❀️

Ex’s and oh’s πŸ‘«β€οΈ

Hey lovelies ❀️ I feel like it’s time for a bit of a life update – even though very soon I will be posting my May reflections. I hope the two posts don’t turn out too similar πŸ™Š But I suppose this post is more about my day today 🌞

If you follow my blog and read some of my posts then you may know I have been chatting to my ex again (Whats new)?

Now the thing is with my ex, we have been on and off for pretty much the last two years. I met him when I was 18 and I’m now 21, so it’s actually more like 3 years. Wow. Whats weird to me is how I remember back when we were first together I used to ask him if he could see me in his life in 5 years time, he always said he hoped so. Well now its three years down the line and we still are a part of each others lives, but this isn’t how I want it to be.

We have been texting for the past three weeks, and it’s been nice for the most part. I love speaking to him but Β I was getting bored of the daily chats when we never actually would hang out. We talk everyday, usually the people I talk to everyday are the ones who I see on a weekly basis. I messaged him asking why he wanted us to be friends when we never actually saw each other. He said he valued me and that he feels happy talking to me. We finally met up today and I don’t know what to make of things now.

I had a really nice time with him today, he made me laugh and smile and to be honest I just always feel good when I’m with him. But it’s not enough, and now I feel sad because I don’t imagine he’ll make plans with me for another two weeks since thats normally what happens 😦 but I want to see him more often than that… I would love to see him twice a week at least! Or even once a week then twice another week.

Also when we left each other he was like ‘catch you around’ .. Who says that? To me thats like he doesn’t plan on seeing me again unless we bump into each other out and about.

I guess all I can do is take it day by day and see what happens. We are texting now so I’m going to continue replying and being friendly. I know technically we are just friends right now, but I do want it to go further than that (at least I think). I’m honestly not sure, but if it get’s too much and I find my feelings grow then I’ll say something to him and ask him how he’s feeling.

I really think it’s important that no matter what I need to start being more positive and believing in him, rather than expecting the worst 🌞

I’ll keep you updated with what happens, thankyou for reading ❀️ I hope you guys have had a good day today, lots of love ❀️ J

Work hard play harder πŸŽ‰βœ¨

Work hard play harder ⭐️ *Image found on google*

Hey beautiful people 🌞 Today I thought I would share with you some of my favourite quotes that give me inspiration and motivate me to work hard and be the best me that I can be.

I’m a sucker for a good quote and sometimes when I need a bit of a pick me up, reading something motivational really helps.

Working hard is super important as we all want the best for ourselves in life don’t we? But nothing great comes without a little bit of hard work 🌞

Here are a few of my favourite motivational quotes 🌞

“Work hard so you can shop harder”
Okay so I absolutely love this since I am a shopaholic, but in order to shop I need to work work work and earn money. Nothing like the thought of an amazing shopping spree to get me motivated to hit target at work 😜

“Dreams don’t work unless you do”
Dream big and always visualise the life you wish, but make sure you work towards your goals too.

“The harder you work the luckier you’ll get”
Whilst I do know that sometimes we genuinely do just get lucky, I also believe that as you work harder you will find there are more opportunities for the things you wish to do and more doors are opened for you. Luck is a reward for all the hard work you are doing!

“Nothing worth having comes easy”
I vaguely mentioned this in my intro but it’s the truth, if somethings worth having you have to work hard for it. In life, you get out what you put in so put in the hard graft and you will reap the rewards.

“A year from now you will have wished you had started today”
Whenever you think, ‘Oh I can’t be bothered to do this today, I’ll do it tomorrow’ FREEZE! Stop right there. Start working towards your goals now and see your life change sooner rather than later. Don’t put off tomorrow what you can do today.

🌞⭐️🌞⭐️🌞⭐️🌞⭐️🌞⭐️🌞⭐️🌞⭐️🌞⭐️🌞

There you have just a few of my favourite motivational quotes which I keep in mind and refer back to often.

I hope you enjoyed this post and it’s helped you to feel motivated to work hard. There will be many more posts like this to come as like I said, I love quotes!

Thankyou for reading, love Jennie ❀️ xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

“What Susie says of Sally…”

“What Susie says of Sally says more of Susie than of Sally”

These are wise words which I really desperately need to start living by.

A light gossip every now and then is one thing, but I believe that sometimes I can take it too far and I’m not proud of that at all, so from now on I really want to try and be more loyal and kind and less bitchy and judgemental.

I wish I could just be someone who only ever says nice things about people ❀️  The type of person who only sees someones positive quailities. My aim in life is to be a good friend and to be good to those who are good to me.

Whilst no one is perfect, it’s not for me to go around slating them for their mistakes.

I’m not saying I’m ever going to be a complete saint, but I hope that as each day goes by I grow as person and I become a better friend, who is more loving and kind.

Thankyou ❀️

Hey lovelies, I just wanted to write this post to say a big thankyou to you all for being so fantastic.
