Update

Hello Everyone 😊
It has been a while since I last updated you. The reason I haven't posted more is because I have no motivation to do so, I don't go out, so I don't have anything to write about, I'm sorry.

Lets start with me: I was referred by the dentist in December to go have sedation, I still haven't heard anything back, so I will have to ring them about that.
My mental state seems to be lower this year, I don't want to do anything and when I do, I don't have anyone with me. The loneliness seems to be getting to me more, sometimes it's not a problem as I do enjoy being by myself but when you do the same thing everyday and you don't leave the house, it does get a bit too much, so I have been sleeping more than usual. I have joined a mental health support group online so when I am feeling at my worst, I can write it on there without being judged and have support from other people going through the same thing.
Also the blogging world has been distant for me, I haven't been to any events and it's really getting to me, I want to see my friends, I want to be happy but I can't force myself to do so.
It's currently sunny in the UK, and it should be lifting my mood but it hasn't and then that makes me sad.

My sister had a sad time in February, baby Jax died and it broke all of us. I've never found a pet dead before and it ripped my heart out. He will be missed.
My mum buried him in the garden and my sister bought a willow tree for him, the fluffiness of the tree reminded her of baby pigs fur.
On Monday my mum and sister went food shopping, they were taking forever, now I know why:
Meet Roman, he's so tiny and I have been cuddling his as much as possible. We introduced him to the other two last night, he was really excited and kept humping them both. They've now been separated but will put them all together when he's a bit bigger.
I have more pictures on Instagram, you can follow me Here

I'm hoping to up my blogging game this year, need to get some motivation if I want to become a full time blogger.
I want to be able to branch out in different areas too, get back in to photography is a must and doing haul posts. Want to get back into doing nail art again, currently trying to grow my nails long but there not a bad length now, just need a bit of care and polish.
Want to collaborate with brands as well. I love doing review posts, keeps me busy.

My dad kindly bought me a 3 pack of craft mats, so I can start using my distress inks and learn to blend. I still love creating things and I have still been making cards for family and friends. I want to do more, maybe in the future, I will sell them.
I'm trying to perfect my technique, I love my zig clean colour brushes and have started using water with them. Still trying to find a cheaper alternative to them though, as I do love the feel of the real brush and to be able to blend colours without any bleeding.
These are some of the cards I've made recently:




The last two were rushed.

This year we've had an Avon lady, I love Avon products and a few months back she gave me a sample of a new perfume and I loved it, i used the whole thing, so I bought the perfume and got a free gift with it:
Viva La Vita with a nail polish in Lilac love, body lotion, and a day and night cream (not pictured)

I also managed to get my hands on a Dot Creates blogger box, its a must buy for anyone 😊
The planner is undated with is amazing, so you can use it whenever you like, you also get a blog planner pad, 2 large quote prints, 2 small quote prints, a set of 4 quoted pencils and some stickers. Can't wait to start using everything.

I have had my eye on this for a while and I've always wanted one, since I've stopped smoking (3 years ago) I get nervous and my hands want to do something, so instead of being glued to my phone, I bought a fidget cube:
Best thing I have ever bought, keeps my fingers busy and has a different "toy" on each side, I even fell asleep with it in my hand yesterday from playing with it. It calms me down when I'm anxious and keeps me busy.

I think that's it for today, Hope this post wasn't too long for you all.

I'm mostly active on Twitter so if you want you can follow me on there too 😊

See you soon,

Love, Emma xxx

Hello Everyone 😊
Another month is over, managed to produce more posts than last month but still not good enough. Really need to up my game and start pre-writing posts, really need to start working on my about me, contact and disclaimer pages if i want to go forward with my blog. And I also want to get back into writing mental health and autism posts too. Leave me a comment on the type of post you would like to see on here, much appreciated.
As with most of my posts, all images are taken off google and plots are taken off Imdb

Love this show, so glad its back, I always look forward to watching the next episode.

Cuckoo 7/10
Watched this out of pure boredom and rather enjoyed it.

Red Dwarf Season 1-8 9/10
I've always loved this show, so it was amazing to watch it from the beginning and hoping for a new season this year. Kryten is my favourite, he's the one on the left.

Netflix Films

Taken 3 8/10
This is a must to watch if you've seen the other two plus who doesn't love Liam Neeson?

Rage 9/10
Right, so i'm a huge Nicolas Cage fan and i'm trying to watch all his film, this one was so good and a must watch.

40 Year Old Virgin 9/10
The title speaks for itself, very funny film.

Chappie 8/10
Love watching robot films and having not seen this yet, I was so happy when it showed up on Netflix, I did enjoy it and its a must watch in my book.

TV Series

The Gadget Show 6/10
It's been a fair few years since I last watched this but with the new season that has just started, its peaked my interest again, I love gadgets and this show is perfect.

Last Man Standing 9/10
This was picked up by E4 starting from season 1 this month and I'm really enjoying it. Plus watching it reminds me of Home Improvements.

Wild Things 10/10
So glad this is back, if you need a good laugh, then watch this =]

Spring Baking Championship 10/10
Even though there was only 2 seasons shown, I enjoyed both, I love watching food programs, especially where people are competing to be the best.

Now TV

My sister has had a now TV box for a while now, the other day, she had accepted a films trail so I hooked it up to the TV and now there are loads of films I can watch (which is good, as I don't go the cinema)
Deadpool 10/10
You don't know how painful it is to wait to watch a film that you've been hyped about for soooooooooooooo long, I had to dodge everyone's views on the film and I'm so glad that I managed to watch it and it acceded my exceptions plus Ryan Reynolds is HOT!

Music

Lana Del Ray - Love
She's back with a new song and I love it.

UK Air Dates

5th April - The 100 - E4 - 9pm
10th April - Prison Break - Fox - 9pm

Also tomorrow, I am going to my first blogger event of the year and I'm nervous and excited at the same time, and it's bothering me so much that its on April fools day, I don't join in with pranks and I always fall for them, I get so upset by them and extremely embarrassed, so fingers crossed nothing goes wrong.

Any-who, What are your favourites for the month?

Hoping to blog more next month 😊

Love, Emma xxx

Clothing/Decor Haul

Hello Everyone 😊
I went shopping yesterday with my mum and decided to pop into Matalan, I have a love/hate relationship with them, but this time round they had some really nice stuff. I bought the item above in the children's bedroom area, its so cute 😊
Its quite bright as well, makes it cuter 


 Since like forever, I've wanted a cup that you can shake and I finally found one.


As a large lady, It's really difficult to find clothes to fit me, and I didn't intentionally go to find anything, but my mum picked up this:
Then I found this:
As the summer stuff is coming out, this had to be bought.

Matalan has so many nice things, its worth a trip there, especially if your going on holiday this year, there are some cheap bits too. 

I also got two bits from George at Asda
I have two blogger events next month and this is perfect plus its long sleeved too.

Love the 80's themed sleeves on this cardigan. 

I haven't bought anything in ages and I really enjoyed going out and seeing whats in season. 

What have you bought recently? Leave me a comment 😊
