A letter to my bully of a brother

A few weeks ago I published a letter to the bullies at school that really affected me during my teenager years. Now I am writing one to the bully I had at home, a letter to my older brother.

Like stated in the first part of this letting go letter series thing, I am sick and tired of going on about the fact that I was bullied. It is now the right time for me, personally, to let go of it and try to move on.

This letter was a hard one to write as obviously it is close to home but one that I needed to write ages ago. Again, there is a bit of swearing in this so sorry about that.

Here is a letter to my bully of a brother...

This Time Next Year Take II

There are 12 months in a year, consisting on either 365/366 days. Top notch observation there, Caroline, well done you. However, a lot can happen in this space, sometimes good and sometimes bad but nonetheless, it is what we call life. I often wonder about the future, what it will hold for me and the people I care about.

So when I was tagged by the lovely Poppy from The Poppyraptor, to do this This Time Next Year tag [thank you sweetie], it got me thinking about I would want to see happen in the next 12 months.

Here are some of the goals I have come up with...

Things I regret in life

I went for a little walk a couple of days ago and somehow I started thinking about regret. We all have our regrets in life. Regretting not telling someone how we truly felt about them. Regretting not accepting that job. Regretting eating that last piece of cake. The latter one not so much [it's cake guys, you gotta eat it alllllllll]. I don't know what it could be, it could be anything to be honest.

Due to this, I have came up with this little list of things I definitely regret in my 22 years of existing. You may relate to one, two, all or none, but never forget that you aren't alone when it comes to regrets because you're not and if you ever need to just let it all go then I am here for you if you wanna kick that regret in its face so you can move forward.

Anyway, on with the regrets!

Another day, another lip kit

You will all probably know by now that I love a good lippy. I have had a few bad ones over the years, that I don't regret buying but won't be putting them in my basket anytime soon. However, I have had even more lipsticks that I would buy time and time again!

Earlier this year, I wrote a review on a Makeup Revolution lip kit and honestly, I loved it! I recently discovered Makeup Revolution and their amazing products [shout out to their eyeshadow palettes because they are spot on] so when I found out that their were bringing out more of their lip kits, I was super duper thrilled. And when I seen that they were in a metallic shade, well then, I needed to try that out as well.

So here we are...

Currently obsessing over...

I obsess over a lot of things. Colin Morgan, Merlin, sweet potato fries, Audrey Hepburn, You Me At Six, to name but a few. You all should know that by now. However, I have been loving these few things recently and well, I thought I would share them all with you. Spreading that love around and all that!

There is a mixture here as I thought it would be good to do a range of things and not just focus on one particular thing like makeup or clothing etc.
From an ice cream that is literally the most refreshing thing I have eaten, a band that I cannot believe I haven't listened to until now to a makeup bag that just screams childhood and a couple more other items! I cannot wait to show you them all and have a good old fangirl talk about them!

Without further ado, let the fangirling commence...

Losing feelings

A month or two ago, I published a post about catching feelings for someone. Not someone in particular, like generally how I get when I start developing a crush. I had such a lovely response to that post, it was overwhelming really so thank you guys, and because of that, I have written this post all about losing them.

Losing feelings is really difficult, especially if you have liked someone or have been with them for a period of time. It is just hard to switch it all off and move on from them.

I don't know about you but I feel like we have to do this immediately. Like we cannot have time to process and let go of them, like we have to accept that the relationship is over or the person doesn't feel the same way and move on then and there.

But as much as losing feelings can suck, it is a thing we all do and it is something that can be good for us and here is why.

A lady in red

First things first, happy Easter guys! I hope your day is filled with love and so much chocolate that you cannot move!
On with today's post! A summer fashion post for you and I am so excited for it!
I absolutely adore dresses, I never ever wore them five years ago because I thought I was too fat and ugly for them but stuff it, Imma wear a dress if I want to!
So when I saw this pretty Marks and Spencer red skater dress, with little black details, it just screamed Audrey Hepburn in her film Charade, so of course I was going to treat myself to it!
I really do feel like a lady in red...

An Eastery chocolate cake

Yesterday, I made this tasty chocolate cake with a hint of Easter added. Having such a lovely response to the picture I posted on my social media accounts, I thought I would share how you can make this delicious cake too!

Not going to lie, I kinda just through this together and chucked on some mini eggs and sprinkled some Cadbury's flake on it. However, I have been on the old Google and found a choccy cake recipe for you all from the Queeeeeeeen on baking, Mary Berry herself! Before you ask, I have made Mary's cake before so don't you worry!

So let us begin with this Easter treat...

The perks of blogging

I have done the things I hate about blogging so now it is time for the things I loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeee about blogging!

There are always negatives in life and in pretty much anything you do, I ain't going to sugar coat that -hence the I hate about blogging post- but the positives definitely out way the bad when it comes to my little space on the internet and in the blogosphere [does anyone else hate that word or it is just me?].

Due to this, I have came up with list to express all things fab-u-lous about blogging and why I started and why you should if you are debating starting it!

So these are some of the perks of blogging...

Dear readers...

I have recently been writing a lot of these 'Dear...' posts [most of them are still waiting to be published] but I love writing them because it is where I can express everything into one thing, a letter.

Last week or so, I published a letter to my school bullies and I have a few more in the pipeline but I wanted to publish this one as soon as possible because a few things have come to my attention recently and it is do with you. You, the reader, who is reading this on my little blog, because this letter is to you.

I just wanted to tell you a few things and I thought I would just write one big letter to every single one of you who has took the time to read my waffle for the past 2 and a bit years.

So here we go...

Five things I love about the North East

North East born and bred I am and I am proud of that. I think people have this perception of us and this puts people off visiting our wonderful region. From cities like Newcastle, Gateshead, Sunderland to Middlesbrough, Darlington and Whitly Bay, there are so many reasons why I love this area of England.

Due to this, I have came up with these five things I utterly adore about this region and why you should to!

Here are five things I love about the North East...
