Has this been an Awful August or an Awesome August for you so far?
I am loving ♥ : Your Birthday wishes! – I just thought I’d catch up on a few things, and I’d like to start with a huge thank you for all of the wonderful birthday wishes. I truly appreciate everyone who read my post, wished me well, and shared a little birthday cake with me. I’ll be totally honest in saying that in all of my 29 years it was probably the worst birthday I’ve ever had. If it weren’t for you amazing people, I would have felt even worse. I think it’s an accumulation of things, including things being difficult at home, my ongoing health problems, and my age marking 10 years officially since all of my health problems started. But enough of that, I’ll save the negative moans for another day!
I am loving ♥ : Blog Post – I love this post of quotes from Dinosaurs, Donkeys and MS Take a look for when you need a pick me up!
I am loving ♥ : Kittykat snuggles – Okay, so I never used to be a cat person, and Virgil can be a total pain in the ass the majority of the time. But, when he’s not, when he wants to be nice and affectionate, he really is a cutie.
I am loving ♥ : Drinkies – Whiskey has been my drink of choice this month. What’s new? It’s a firm favourite, and I’ve gone for Jim Beam (cheaper as it’s often on offer) with Pepsi Max. My dentist will hate me.
I am loving ♥ : Authors – I am absolutely loving Alex Barclay right now! I am currently reading Blood Loss. Before that I read Killing Ways and it was fantastic. This is a crime thriller of the American ilk and features the gloriously sarcastic and lovable, Ren, who has bi-polar. It is intelligently and confidently written, drawing me in to keep turning the pages and I was so sad when it ended. Highly recommended! You can get it cheaply on Amazon, or download it on Kindle.
I am loving ♥ : In The News – This story (you can read it here) about how a hairdresser in Ohio was met with a 16 year old girl asking for her hair to be totally cut off after it had become severely matted. She had been battling depression and thought herself to be ‘worthless’, but needed to do something with her hair for the upcoming school photographs. Instead of shaving off her hair, the hairdresser spent 13 hours over 2 days totally repairing and revamping her hair into gorgeous tresses. A small and wonderful act of human compassion.
I am loving ♥ : Beauty bargain – Lots of fab bargains at Superdrug at the moment, including Herbal Essences half price. Plus, buy 3 hair products and get a free travel set! And there’s free home delivery with a Beauty Card and other freebie delivery options. Just bought more shampoo than I have any sane need for…
I am loving ♥ : Netflix & Chillin’ – Everyone knows Breaking Bad, and I loved it from start to finish. Have you seen Better Call Saul? Season 3 is currently airing on Netflix and I can’t get enough of it! I also got through the rather popular new series Big Little Lies, which was engaging and well-acted, though there should be a trigger warning regarding scenes of domestic violence. Ozark, with Arrested Development’s Jason Bateman, is another top scorer when it comes to new releases, and although it felt a little dark and perhaps a tad slow at times, it certainly had cutting undercurrents that made for gripping viewing.
