I like you & I love you. 

It’s rare that you are lucky enough to fall madly in love with someone who isn’t only your partner but also your best friend, someone you get along with so well they make you a better person. I don’t tend to post soppy personal posts on social media but if I’m blogging about the wonderful things in life then this man is definitely right up there with movies and puppies. 

This is more a post about general relationships than about mine. Find someone who makes you laugh from the bottom of your belly, Who you can tickle until they cry, who you can wrestle until someone gets hurt and then you laugh about the fact that one of you got hurt and wrestle some more. Go out on adventures, eat at cool, hipster restaurants and don’t be afraid to be messy when you eat. Find someone who you can be the truest form of yourself around. Honesty is the best policy, if your mad let them know building up feelings will only end up in arguments, just be happy. I know it’s not easy to stay happy every moment of every day but find someone who will do their best to make you smile. We accept the love we think we deserve and everyone deserves the most amazing love they can get.

Short and stumpy.

Although there are a lot of things about myself that I am unhappy with I have serious confidence issues when it comes to my short and stumpy legs. Even when I was in school and did every sport I could possibly take part in I still hated them. I used to sit and stare at my huge thighs and feel so ugly. However I don’t want to waste my life hating myself anymore and after recently getting a wonderfully designed leg tattoo I am slowly starting to change the way I feel about my legs. For the first time in years I am comfortable in leaving the house with a dress on and not have to worry about wearing tights, I bought a gorgeous pair of floral 3/4 trousers that show off my tattoo instead of living in skinny jeans. I am slowly making a change to the way I think and it’s making me feel so much better about life. NOBODY CARES! So stop worrying about what they think of you! 

Love yourself. 

Who likes porridge?

I have never been a fan of breakfast. The thought of soggy cereal and burnt toast is enough to turn anyone away! As I work for a bakery one of the breakfast items we offer is a wonderful smelling golden syrup porridge which although I hate porridge just smelt so delicious i decided to try it. It’s safe to say I fell in love. From my new found courage to try different porridge I came across honey and vanilla Quaker oats which when topped with blueberries is absolutely incredible. I would definitely recommend for anyone who wants a quick yet filling breakfast that tastes a little sweeter than most. I’m in love.  

Yes Please

As some of you may have grasped from the title and header of this blog, Amy Poehler has become a huge inspiration of mine recently, her sassy personality and no fucks given attitude has helped me to realise that it just doesn’t matter what other people think of you! If you are a good person then that is all that people should care about, not what you look like or what new style you have tried with your hair. It just doesn’t matter.

I have always had this issue with myself caring to much about what I look like and always being paranoid that everyone around me is either talking about how stupid I look or even just thinking it. The one thing that being in university has taught me is that everyone feels like this, everyone around you are too busy thinking of this to care about what you look like. Life is too short. One day you will wake up and realise why the hell did I waste so much of my life hating myself when I could have been worrying about more important things SUCH AS LIVING MY LIFE!

I have come to the conclusion that Amy Poehler is queen and anyone who thinks otherwise psssht well you suck! (just kiddin, but no srsly she is!)

Hello, Is it me you’re looking for?

Hi there, my name is Jayde and I wanted to start this little blog as an outlet to share some of the more positive things in my life, things I love, new things I have tried out and things that make me smile. I want to make people smile. Inspire people to try new things, and crawl out of my comfort zone to try things I wouldn’t usually be confident enough to try. I want to make a change in my life for the better. Life is too short and there are just way too many opportunities to make life more exciting.
