It's been a hectic week but slowly everything has managed to come together. Merry Christmas to you!

Santa never delivered any presents for my son's first Christmas, the cheek of him! Instead myself, family and friends put our hands in our pockets and brought him things. I hope no one relied on santa this year Lol.

So my week went like this..

Done all my Christmas shopping on Monday. I did originally plan to do it on Christmas Eve, but I'm glad I didn't! I left out pretty late (12pm) and came back just before 7pm. The time it took me to get the presents was not bad, considering I didn't know exactly what to get for anyone besides my son.

For the rest of the evening I just got my son ready for bed, and got some rest myself.

Tuesday I wrapped up the presents. Can't say I'm happy about all the presents I purchased, but they'll have to do. Are you happy with the Christmas presents you bought for your loved one's? Still don't feel like we're in December though! Ohh well, I've got more important things to focus on like my dissertation and an essay due in for the beginning of January.

Wednesday I honestly was just trying to get my printer to work. Took me a good few hours! The printer didn't want to cooperate without the wire, so I had to connect it all up instead. I printed out some important documents that will help me for whenever I decided to write up my essay, photos of my son for Christmas cards (my mom wants to send them out to family)and writing another to do list. I love writing to do list's, especially how these days I'm actually ticking things off, before I just done it for fun.

Thursday was a lazy day. I didn't want to do anything. But as a full time mother you're not given the choice. Luckily, like always my energy picked up around midday and I was able to conquer things that needed doing.

Today (Friday).. its Christmas and a special one too, son's first Christmas not that he'll remember which is good because I could easily wrap up things around the house and take pics of him next to them. Then when he grows up pretend that there was some great stuff in them. Jokinggggg, he's got a few good gifts that are real!

Seriously though for the rest of the day me and my triangle family will be spending the day together watching films and eating our belly's full. I say triangle family because there is only 3 of us and my son is young, so I feel the need to implement shapes into as much sentences as I can.

Anyway hope you like all the gifts you received and enjoy the rest of the day. Xx

So its 7 days until Christmas, how does that make you feel? Pretty scary if you haven't got Xmas presents yet, and still have quite a few bits and bobs left to do. I'm not even worrying, as long as I've got a few presents to give out and a nice meal, all will be good.

This year I'll be spending Christmas with my little triangle family (hubby and son). For Boxing Day we'll be making a journey to my grandparents, and the whole family will be there so that's nice -yaaay.

As I'm still trying to get my head around the fact that we're in December, my wrist have been playing up again. It's clearly the cold weather making it worse. I've got CTS (carpal tunnel syndrome), I got it towards the end of my pregnancy, but still till this day I'm having problems. My son is six months now I mean come on give me a break! Anyway, due to the cold weather, on Monday I decided to do a bit of online shopping. I personally hate online shopping but I guess it was convenient for me that day.

Tuesday was gloomy and wet outside, I went shopping with my mom and got a few things. I got some crafts for my son to create his own calendar, a few things for myself like a journal to help me keep my ish together and clothes.

Wednesday, well maybe you should tell me what happened that day! As far as I'm concerned the day went by incredibly fast! My son had a lot of energy, and for some reason I was the total opposite - weak. I didn't have a nap while my son was sleeping, instead I managed to fight the tiredness away. It's funny because I literally always feel energetic when his sleeping.

Although I was tired Thursday morning I still managed to clean up my room and make the bed. I got ready and left out on time to make it to a meeting I had at uni. I made it there for 12pm and that's because I had a parking space as soon as I reached there, usually it's hard to get a parking space at certain times of the day. It's close to Christmas though so some of them are probably shopping.

When I got back home from uni, I addressed some uni work and made amendments to parts that needed adjusting, meanwhile my son was out with his auntie. If my son was with me, that work would have taken me a week to get out the way.

On Friday.. TODAY I MEAN! In the morning I walked my dog. Had breakfast then got my son ready for the day and now I'm here typing. But for the rest of the day I'll be reading a few blogs, eating a mince pie and pampering myself. 

what did you get up to this week, let me know..

Heyyy, its Friday again!

The way the weeks are passing us by its ridiculous. 11 days into December and I still feel like I'm in June. Well this may sound crazy as it's getting colder, but to be honest we hardly had any nice summery days this year (British weather).

Thinking about it, this time next year I'd have no more uni, now that's something to look forward to!

Anyway that's enough babbling. I know you just want to know how my week was, unless you just clicked on it by accident. -Then again, if you clicked on it by accident surely you wouldn't still be reading THIS.

Starting off with Monday. Urghhh beginning of the week, luckily for me I'm on maternity so I love every day of the week, unfortunately maternity is not going to be forever and I'm due to start back very soon. But today all I did was chill, I had stuff to do and slowly done it while watching The Walking Dead. Why am I so late with watching this? I'm currently on season 2 ep 7, do you watch it? Obviously I couldn't enjoy it too much I've got my son to look after. I was home alone with him the whole day watching T.W.D scared! I was mainly petrified when my son was crying and the zombies were on the screen, I was trying to keep quiet.-it seemed like all that was going on was my reality for the duration of watching it, mad I know.

That day I also done some uni c/w, I always drag it out. Focusing on doing work with my baby on my lap is not as easy as it looks/sounds. I get the help, but when I get the help I'm never in the mood or tired.

Tuesday my son had a weight review so me and my hubby took him, his along the lines that they want him to be, yaay! For the last two months his been below the line, his weight looks perfectly fine though so I'm wondering if they even know what they're talking about. Jheeeze I might be young and they maybe professionals, but professionals aren't always professional. 

I felt physically drained all day, I don't know why but I'm starting to feel really tired again. This fatigue business is getting on my nerves! I feel how I was a couple weeks after giving birth, but aren't I suppose to be over this by now?

Wednesday consisted of rushing, pulpatations and losing my mind. I usually stop over my parents’ house when I have to go uni in the mornings. It's best that way as it's quicker to get to uni and my son can be looked after without the rush of dropping him, you get the point right! Well clearly Tuesday night I must have been delusional because I thought it wouldn't be a challenge to hand in an assignment for 12pm. How wrong I was, over sleeping is trouble when you've got something to do for a certain time. I woke up at 9:00 and had to rush a shower plus a wash for my little one. Drive to my parents which is 30 minutes without traffic but it's early so there's a little. Reached there for 10:30, throw my son in the house (joke) make sure I have my uni badge and everything else in the bag before I set off again and boom! It's 10:49. I was going insane but this isn't the first time I've done this, which means I must love the adrenaline rush this give me (unconsciously).

I reached uni at 11:20 and that's ok but finding a parking space was where it got even more intense. It took a minute to find a space but it felt longer than that. All the emotions I was feeling while walking towards uni I can't even explain. And yeah I said walking, walking fast to a computer to print off my work, the first printer I tried had no ink. I had to walk in another part of the uni to get my work printed! I don't know how the time was only 11:47 but I wasn't going to complain I handed in my work before the deadline so I felt good again.

Walking to my car now and I couldn't find my keys. I lost them for an hour, I laugh now but even at the time I lost them I wasn't even panicking. I mean I have a spare car key at home and you can always cut house keys, I was just happy my work was handed in.

The feeling of tiredness slapped me around my face. Me and my Lil man slept that off for a couple of hours though.

On Thursday the weather wasn't saying much so neither was my mood. I just got washed and done the usual. I did read a few blogs but I don't follow enough bloggers so it didn't last long, any suggestions on bloggers you like? I stayed up late again doing nothing, I'm going to stop doing this soon. The energy I get late at night is what I need during the day.

Friday is going to be dedicated to T.W.D, although I do need to go to the shops a buy a few things- probably do that later. I'll be giving myself a pamper sesh (session) too.

We'll that's how my week went, I hope yours has been fine too. See you on Monday, bye!

Stress or Anxiety..

Image result for stressed girl tumblr


Is it just me or do you also wake up some days feeling low- its ok, life is complex!!!

For me I'm a worrier and I'll literally stress over the littlest things! It's so bad that I often find myself worrying about nothing. I'll be sitting down or doing something and start worrying. The way that I help myself get out of this state is by thinking of what the problem is, and the funniest thing is that occasionally it's nothing. if there is a problem though I create break down solutions and plan out what my next step will be to deal with the matter.  

The biggest problem with me being a worrier is that my over thinking sometimes triggers belly ache and feeling uncomfortable. This goes along with me not feeling my usual self the day before I have work all the way up until my shift has started! Is this normal? Do you feel this way?

The music that I find myself listening to sometimes makes my mood escalate to another level. I mean it's good music but when your feeling low I guess it doesn't help when you listen to songs that have a great meaning!
Talk about being selfish; I know there are people out there that actually have bigger problems than I do but in the present moment, when I'm feeling low I'm not trying to think about anyone else!  Plus when I'm emotional I feel like I'm the only person going through things and suffering. I guess it cant always be helped when a few of the people I speak with are only sharing the good events in their life. Hmm, I guess to get out of the dark space you've got to get your mind out of there.

I'm aiming to be a counsellor for young adults and kids, the reason why is because when you see adults stressing its often due to events that happened during the early stages of life or simply just the life I guess. plus its always good to speak with a stranger- don't you think?  

Have a good day if you can now lool, hmm a bit too dark to post on a gloomy Monday but you'll be fine. Thanks for reading. Comment but if not I'll see you Friday Xx

Heyy all!
So we're actually in December.. eewww and it doesn't feel right! I usually put the Christmas decorations up at the end of November, as that's around the time I feel jolly.. But nope, I've had to force the feeling this year.  
Anyway let me tell you what I've been getting up to this week! Hahaa mainly the usual- nothing special.

On Monday, yes I was feeling it (energetic)! I woke up early (earlier than usual), got ready for uni and went for a couple hours. I drove back home rapping along to some "PARTYNEXTDOOR", yeah you could say I had a solo rave. I wish I saved all that energy though, as once I reached home it's got to be all about my son. Unfortunately he doesn't sleep when I want to sleep, he can't even be left alone - even when his sleeping. But then again he is so cute so you forget about all the sleep you've missed out on. I write all this with a tear rolling down my face. 

Tuesday, plans flopped! One of the things I was meant to do is get one of my nails repaired as it broke. But because I decided to get them all long I realised this broken nail is actually quite helpful- so I left it.

nail broke!
In the night my son had me up, for what reason I do not know! Usually I'm not that tired at night but this night I happened to be, I seriously cant wait until I can get him into a routine. Eventually went to sleep at 2am!
Wednesday hmmm my memory is failing me big time. I believe it's either baby brain or I'm just totally losing it?! So Wednesday I was doing something... err...
Being a mommy and later on chilled with my hubby.

On Thursday I was meant to meet up with my friend Laura but that didn't happen! Instead my sister decided to rush to open up her delivery and hurt herself. She started going all pale so I had no other option than to stay (no one else was in the house to keep her company).

Later on in the evening I went to the shops with my son. Instead of being LAZY I walked to the shop. It was raining and nasty and I could have easily used my car so clap for me. I brought a few things plus treats but as I was rushing out the shop I ended up breaking my debit card, I split the card in half 😠, I reached home just before Emmerdale (if you know, you know!) and got a phone call from I'm a celebrity again.. Yep that's me on the TV again.

Friday morning I accompanied my sister, she had a driving lesson she's an ok driver I guess- felt much safer when the car wasn't moving though. My son was with his grandparents at a funeral so I caught up with them after the lesson had finished. I Hate funerals but I guess everyone does.

Anyway enough of me, how was your week? Comment below and let me know, I'll reply but you got to comment first.

Thanks for reading my written reality Lool. xx

What's In My Bag?!

If you couldn't already tell from the title, today I'm going to discuss about what's in my handbag. I'm going to keep this interesting, you simply wouldn't believe all the things I keep in it (lies).

So the bag I'm currently using is a New Look handbag.. "Black snakeskin tote bag," it was a birthday gift that I received back in June but only now I'm using it (wasn't really feeling it at first). This is my everyday bag for now, however I do switch my bag from time to time, depending on the outfit I'm wearing and where I'm going. If you like the look of it, it's still available in New Look for the price of £18.74.

Front of bag
Back of bag

For me I like to keep my bag light. I get slightly anxious about having too much things in my bag in case someone steals from me or its an unlucky day for me so I lose it. Hahaa it might sound a Little silly but that's just how I feel. I know some people carry their life around with them in their bags but that's not me!

The first item is my purse.. its apink glittery one, I love it! It was purchased from Matalan for £6.00 but I doubt the still sell it (sorry, you're going to have to look for an alternative) New Look have one in three colours; silver, black and gold.

The alternative: Link below

Second item is my pencil case.. hmm never know when you'll need a pen I guess. Yeah it's not the best looking case but who’s trying to be cool. It polka dot yellow and white, in fact looking at the state of it I need to buy a new one. If you want a polka dot pencil case try this for £8.00 from ASOS
My pencil case
The alternative: Link below

Next item is makeup bag, it needs upgrading I just haven't seen a nice one yet.. Suggestions please. I don't ever reapply my make up (only put on mascara, and eyebrows Lool) but just to fill up the bag I plonk it in there.

Fourth is HAND SANITISER! Do I really need to say why? It goes without saying, especially if you don't want to be ill over the Christmas period- or ever!! "Be wise, sanitise" it just felt right typing that just go along with it.

Fifth item is perfume.. Top Up on perfume whenever possible. I love the smell of the perfume shop and I want to smell like it! Plus when someone tells you that you smell nice.. *cute giggle* it feels good ...😙

Next item is a mirror- just to make sure my eyebrows are in place.

Seventh item is cream. You know when you're in a rush and don't have time to cream yah hands or feet (feet lool), well keep some in yah bag and you'll be fine.

Eighth item is my car key/keys- I drive, they're needed.. Yeah nothing much to say.

Next item is my phone charger, recently I happen to be on the phone all the time so I don't want to have a dead phone on me and feel frustrated. The only problem is, when I have nowhere to plug it in- Uurghhh! Hmm I just won't be sticking round for long!

Thanks for reading, hope you enjoyed it.

Bye now xx

Hey all, hope you've had a great week. We're less than a month away from Christmas, can you believe it?! I mean I guess I'm not the first person to tell you so you probably can. I'd like to believe that I've had a hectic week, but we all know that's a lie. Well actually I have been busy, busy looking after my son 24/7.  And I'd like to class motherhood as hectic living.

Anyway I'm going to start with what I done on Monday. Well I was drunk and can't remember much. Ok, you got me. I don't drink and I didn't do anything, besides the usual duties. But honestly, all jokes aside I can't remember what I done. The day is pretty much a blur.

Tuesday was a day of trying to get my son into baby food. You would think he's ate food before, he's all for whatever I'm eating and against the baby food. I tried to offer him chicken and orchard, then banana and peach (he likes this). I'm currently weaning him now as he's officially six months. I can't believe seriously how fast his growing up. When I've heard people in the past say "children grow up fast", I've given them the side eye and gone yeah sure. But you won't know until you have your own or watch a close friend’s child jump life every time you visit.

At 4 I had a nail appointment. It's been a good while since I last had my nails done. I've been in need of treating myself but ever since I've had my son I've been unable to due to me falling ill as soon as I would get better. I got them pained grey and they're kind of longish. To be honest since Tuesday I've been feeling like Beyoncé, well.. not Beyoncé but a powerful, confident woman.

Wednesday was just like Monday. I did get some uni work done though!  I always feel uni work is never ending, whenever my hubby asks me what I'm doing I wish I could change up the script and not say uni work. The worst thing is I'm always dragging it out, where realistically I could probably dedicated 2 days to it and kick it out the way Lol. Clearly I chose to make my life more difficult than it has to be.

Thursday I done the usual then went for a little walk around the block. Never quite done the penny walk, but I went for a walk jheeeze! If you didn't already know I'm trying to trade in my junk fast life for the healthy long one. It's obviously difficult but one day I'll get there and it'll be my new normal. I should probably swap the hot chocolate for an avacado and something. By the way I wouldn't mind a few suggestions on what healthy meals to eat.

Friday yaay, today I make it my job to comment on blogs, so if you're a blogger comment below and leave your link. I should also take myself to the hairdressers to get a trim but I'll have to fit that into my busy schedule called can't be bothered today but maybe tomorrow Lool.

Hope you enjoyed my written reality show. I just hope the dry humour I put in the text is coming through.

My Basic Skin Care Routine

Be fresh and ready everyday

This blog post simply talks about my everyday skin care routine, it’s not long at all and pretty basic to say the least.

 On a Monday morning it may be difficult getting up and feeling good! (Or any other day of the week). So to help you start the week I'm going to give you directions on how to get a spotless face.

In the morning even after a good night's rest you may still feel a bit urghhh. Well shake that mood off and let's get cracking on to the transition of a positive vibe. Let's put the radio on or play some music you like from your phone.

You done?

Right, so we're going to wet our face.. I mean you are, with some warm water! You can obviously use a flannel or face towel whatever you like to call it.

To start make sure you open up your pores put a face towel in hot water. Squeeze as much water out of it as possible and cover your whole face with it while pressing down (repeat this).

Leave it there for a minute or two, but note that once the face towel gets cold repeat the previous instructions (no more than 3 times).
Now get your facial cleanser and put a dashing amount in the centre of your hand. Spot the cleanser all over your face and start rubbing it in. I use either 'Nivea' or the 'Skin system' (by ASDA). The price for the Nivea exfoliating scrub is currently at £2.00 in ASDA for the 100ml one. I decided to give the ASDA skin system facial scrub a go a couple months back and it's really good, they keep changing the design of it though, so every time I go in there I always think it’s been discontinued. It's only £2.00 which is its normal price without a special offer. Definitely a reliable alternative if you're trying to save a few pounds.    

(Now back to business) When it's been rubbed in well all over your face go and have a bath or shower to help it sink into your skin and do whatever it does. Rinse off your face after your choice of washing. Make sure it's all wiped off your face.

Now get the face cloth in cold water, squeeze as much water out and place it on your face. Take it off when you're ready then you’re done!
I let my face dry naturally, but you can use a clean towel if you wish. And put on whatever cream you like to use on your face once dry.

Finally you can now cream your face with either a matt finish or one that will help with dryness. I actually use baby lotion (lool) only a tiny bit though, my face is quite sensitive and I've been using it for too long to want to change. But for the rest of my body I choose to use these three, I change regularly as I like the mixture of all three.


Thanks for reading.. share, comment and follow xx

See you on Friday..

I love hot chocolate, but you don't necessarily need to drink it while reading this (no drink discrimination)...

This is just a little post where I talk about what I've been doing in the week. Giving you highlights of my week on a Friday.

Monday yaay the beginning of the week (like you didn't already know that). Pretty boring Monday, but I'm still living and appreciating life so stayed happy. I clearly was in a good mood though because I offered to drop my little sister to work (too much time on my hands- maternity leave). Anyway I was acting cray cray in the car, you know the normal! Speaking to myself, dancing and all sorts. No, I'm not a bad driver!

Beeping over to Tuesday, it was a chilled day, all I really done was some proof reading for some uni work. Oh and I guess I put together a nice lunch; I done jacket potato (the jacket was just right) with tuna, onions and salad.

In the evening I watched the usual soaps, but during Emmerdale I had a phone call from Australia. I answered the phone and in my head was thinking- this person needs to talk quick and get to the point! It was only the production team from 'I'm a celebrity get me out of here' calling..

Arhhh huh! OMGGG.. I was gassed, possibly too gassed. He said I'll Skype you in an hour so think of a question within this time. I made a broadcast on Whatsapp and told most of my contacts.. PING! PING! PING! My phone was having several seizures with everyone replying. When the production team Skype me the second time they said that I'll be on standby so may not make it on tonight, and I didn't! -vibe killer.

Sleeping time away until Wednesday I dedicated the morning to my studies. Literally it's like I'm forcing myself to do whatever I have to do for uni these days. Luckily I get into it in the end. Once the clock turned 2pm though I was out for that little retail therapy. I didn't find anything thing though. Which is good in a way (more money to put towards mine and Frans savings).

Later on in the night I done a Skype video call to "I'M A CELEBRITY GET ME OUT OF HERE NOW", I had asked Gemma Collins a question. The question was "watching Fearne go into the Jungle and taking part in your first trial, did it make you regret leaving so soon?" Unfortunately I never got to see it on the TV though so I stayed up and extra hour. I was so tired but finally managed to go bed at 1am.

Happy happy still buzzing on Thursday, I put all my blogs on one Web page which is available here & > . I also cleaned up and done some work during the day. I tried to put my son to bed early and slept for a 2 hours, getting him to go back to sleep was a problem though. 

So for today (Friday 20th) I'm just going to do the usual. Although I would like to go for a penny walk if it doesn't rain. The penny walk involves going on walks where you don't know where you're going to end up. Obviously it's probably best to do it in a familiar area, but then again surely you've got google maps to direct you back to where you started so you don't get lost. But basically it works like this; whenever you're at the end of the road flip a coin. Decide heads being left and tail being right. And at every corner keep doing this- it keeps the walk interesting. Comment if you've tried this already.

Now don't forget to follow me on Twitter, Bloglovin and Wordpress! See you all next week- have a lovely weekend xx

12 Blog Post Ideas...

Ideas for your next few blogs maybe?

Whether you're new to blogging like me, or have been blogging for years, it's always good to get fresh ideas to jot down. I'm telling you 12 ideas, so why 12? Well there's 12 months in a year and we're so near to the end!

Round this time of the year everyone wants to know about fashion do's and don'ts for this season, hairstyles, or simple tips on what to do on the weekend (it's getting colder by the day, you may want to stay in but your bored). If you blog look below for the 12 ideas to help keep your blog interesting.

1) Updated your song playlist recently? Well why not share the songs you've downloaded and put them in order of favourites.

2) Found it easy to pick presents for people who are special to you? If you did share what you've brought so readers can get an idea of what to buy and where to buy it from for their loved ones.

3) Its getting cold and surely you must have changed up the style in your wardrobe. Blog about what you're wearing this season like that new fabulous coat your wearing to keep warm.

4) As we're approaching Christmas we might just want to know what you’re cooking up for this festive season. Don’t make anything boring!

5) Share the most memorable and happy memories you have had this year. Probably best to do that on New Year’s Eve though "12 Best Memories Of 2015". 

6) Write how you plan to have the best festive party. What type of decorations you will have, theme colour, food you'll cook- will things be made from scratch?

7) Discuss what type of goals you want to achieve for the New Year, plus tell us how you plan to achieve them! 'Blog Action Plan'

8) Give advice to people about things which you have been through this year and how you handled it or are still coping with the matter.

9) Autumn/winter hairstyles. It's kind of getting cold now, I mean it is cold now. And sometimes you just can't be bothered to spend too much time on your hair so you just put it up. But can you do a simple hairstyle that looks sophisticated yet takes so little time?

10) Have you got some on trend things at a really good price? Even a good bargin that you need to tell people about. Why not share what you bought, what price you got it for and of course where you got it from.

11) If you're anything like me you may like to keep changing the style or the way furniture is set in your room. Dedicate a blog to the bedroom and share how you keep everything organised and clean.

12) Do an about me 'LOVE HATE' blog. Obviously this consists of doing a list of things you love and another for things you hate. Why not share this so readers can get to know more about you. Hmmm people may just not like you after all Lol.

Suggest other ideas in the comments session.

If you have Twitter why not follow me (@Shirelle_SVLH) or we can snap on snapchat (Shansel21).

This is just a little post where I talk about what I've been doing in the week. Giving you highlights of my week on a Friday.

So at the start of the week like I always do, I set tasks that need to be achieved by the end of the week or at least before Monday! A few tasks that were on the list was to complete some work for my dissertation, clean my room (this is always on the list) and have a complete outfit for a birthday meal that I'll be going too on the weekend. I posted up a blog on the Monday too discussing how much I hate work!

The next day it was all about my son (to be honest that's everyday), he had an appointment at 13:10 (I was late but still got seen) and yeah by the time I came back home the day was basically over (I was over it any).

On Wednesday I was meant to be at uni, started at 9am. There was no way I was going to make it after my son kept me up all night (Oops, not my fault his teething). With making no attempt to go uni I was on my laptop for most of the day. I done some work but soon got distracted with YouTube vids and creating a Twitter account (follow me @Shirelle_SVLH).

Later on in the evening my sister told me "I think I've got on the wrong bus", and she did! It's a shame she didn't get off the bus sooner though, I mean she only managed to make it to Solihull (totally the wrong direction).

Moving onto Thursday I literally was getting a lot of uni work out the way. I didn’t fulfil the day in the way that I wanted to. Time had just been tick, ticking away, and you know it's always working against you when you've got so much to do!

Tick-tock to Friday.. Yaay that's today. Well I uploaded this blog, sent a few tweets and got ready for the day. So maybe later I'll read a few blogs and comment on them. I'll be going for a walk round the block get some fresh air through my system. Look for Christmas prezzies before last minute and I'll probably have a nap too.

I Hate Work!!

What am I doing?

As a youngster you just want to rush and grow up! Then as time goes by as fast as it does you have to job search to survive. Finding out what type of career path you want to take all starts off at secondary school. This is the time when you are asked to think of the ideal career path you would want to take upon in the future, and with keeping this in mind you’re meant to choose subjects that will help you to achieve steps in order to make it to your desired career.


I was a creative person during my school days. Initially I started off as wanting to be a clothes designer and have my own clothing line. But once I had left school I was thinking what are the chances of this actually happening? So when deciding what course to take on at college I choose social care (safe option). This was the last thing I thought I would be choosing to do, but even though I was on the course I still had no clue in what type of job I would want to be taking on after. Applying for the social care course meant I had options of picking a career to be a social worker, support worker the list goes on.


Moving on... At the age of 21 and being a support worker for the time being while I study psychology combined with counselling (my last year), I've decided I want to be a clinical psychologist. However, sometimes I feel I want to do something more creative. The chance of being a counsellor is interesting to me and I think I'd make a good one but still, deep down this kind of doesn't satisfy me enough. Yet I can't tell you exactly what I want to do that would, because I just want to put my hands into everything. I don't want to be like the majority of people who just work and don't enjoy where they're working, where the only days to look forward to is pay days and holidays (annual leave). To me I feel life is too short to just be ok with things that are a major part of your life. 


With time partly on my side (never know what's around the corner) I shall start to explore to help me find what it is that will satisfy me work wise. 


Hope you enjoyed the blog, please comment and share xx

Positive Changes: Healthy New Start

Making changes starts NOW!

Finally after I've was told by my midwife multiple times that my eating habits need to change I'm determined to try again (only 5 months after giving birth!). I'm going to prepare myself for the ups and downs, but obviously the downs are going to be the hardest times. Literally going to have to not be tempted to fall into the vicious trap of sweet things. Recently I've been buying loads of devil treats. Consuming loads of carbs, and to top it off I've just jumped on the hype for energy drinks (now I get headaches all the time). My son is 5 months and I keep picking up rubbish to eat because he gives me no time to leave and prepare something nice and healthy. Gosh how I do have an excuse for literally everything!

For me to help bury my cravings of bad things a diet isn't going to help but a life style change will. Fresh outlook on how to view food and experiment with food to keep things interesting for my greedy tummy. I can tell you for free, I'm the type of person that says they'll only have a few sweets- but before you know it the whole packet has finished and my inner gorilla has been set free.

I've been on the Atkins diet before which did work and results were ok. They results were only ok because I only lasted 2 weeks, why 2 weeks you may ask? Well what had happened was I was foolishly gassed with the little weight loss so I said I deserve a treat. I indulged into the biggest burger and fries! This messed everything up and my devil taste buds took over, so from then I went back to more and more junk food which wasn't worth it!

Weight loss results are motivating but at this time of the year food is even more so tempting! Yet I feel if I can't resist now, I'll never be able to...

Let Me Intoduce Myself...

Where to begin?

My name is Shirelle, I am 21 and this is my new hobby.
People label me as shy and really quiet but, well the thing is I'm not really like that. The problem is that if you see that side I'm probably in an antisocial mood, can't be bothered with you or really tired (After all I am a "young mom"- oh judge if you wish!). To be honest though I can also be socially awkward at times without even being aware. 
Moving onto the positive things about me, I'm horribly sarcastic in a good way most people tend to think. I love life, can't say I'm living it to the fullest but I definitely appreciate everyone and everything around me. In fact let me make a list of 10 points that sums me up.
1.      Don't like to smile- I'm a kind person but I prefer to have my straight face on, being natural is best right?
2.     I love a good reality show like; KUWTK, Real Housewives plus Love and Hip hop ATL the problem with watching these though is that they're rubbish yet addictive- confusing much!
3.     Enjoy driving- mainly when I'm not having to rush somewhere because I'm late.
4.    Spending most of my time watching YouTube videos mainly vlogs.
5.     Cooking and baking when I feel like a chef or someone that just simply knows their way around the kitchen.
6.    Sleeping, I hardly get any sleep but when I'm able to get a good one all is wonderful.
7.     I'll chat you to death about nothing. Seriously I can get really annoying and loud when I'm in my hype mood- probably because of my sleep deprivation.
8.    Trying new things, you only live once so why not live and explore. 
9.    Enjoy my duties of being a mommy, wifey, daughter, and friend- not the best but I try to be a good one.
10.Doing nothing! Relaxing time is great, it’s not exactly me time with my son being the great attention seeker that he is but it is good enough.
