Hey It's Okay...To Fall Out Of Love With Life

Untitled
I love life. Many don't believe me when I say it, but I think of it like an engagement ring, not everyone will like yours or want it for themselves but as long as you like it, as long as you want to wake up every damn morning because you just can't wait to see what the day has in store for you - to hell with everyone else.



Whilst I'm a lover of life, I like to think I've got my head on my shoulders too and I don't always walk around with rose tinted sunglasses on (although I recommend you wear yours often as often as possible). Because life is a rollercoaster as Ronan Keating once famously sang - "you just gotta ride it." But at the same time, hey it's okay...to fall out of love with life.



You can fall out of love with absolutely everything and anything at any one time. A few years ago I was pleather obsessed and loved wearing my hair in the biggest beehive you've ever seen. I've fallen out of love with that now and that's just my life evolving. It can be something as small as that or it can be more of a life changing turning point. Maybe you've spent your entire life working towards what you thought you once wanted but you've been coasting along with an OK life but what's not OK is settling with your life if you're not absolutely in love with it.



Perhaps the career you've trained for and having been doing since day one doesn't light up your life anymore. That's completely fine. So do something about it. Maybe you're like me and have always had a list of things you want to do. I love photography, videography, interior design and writing so I hope that if I ever do fall out of love with what I do, I'll have a plan B.



You'll fall out of love with where you're living, with certain foods and even your partner. Look for the signs because guess what, it's time to make a change. What does your heart want? Shut off that head for a second. Maybe you've been living in the city for a few years but deep down you're yearning for village pubs, a garden for your dog and rolling hills. Perhaps you always thought you wanted to be a lawyer but animals are everything to you. If so, go do.



Falling out of love ain't bad. OK, romantically speaking it's like having your heart ripped out, but it's life's way of giving you a second, third or fourth chance to live your life to the absolute fullest. Don't ignore it, because that's slapping life in the face. Follow your heart and sometimes that's not where you ever thought it would take you, but maybe that's exactly where you need to be.

Review | Blow Dry at Rush Manchester

UntitledRaise your hand if you hate washing your hair? I am one of those people. In fact I haven't touched my fancy schmancy hairdryer in over a year, which the girl I was a few years ago would shudder at. So when anyone offers to help me be a girl, I am all for it. Cue Rush Manchester

When's Too Soon?

Untitled
There's probably some blogger law out there that advises against opening a post with a question. But heck, it's the weekend and I'm throwing the rule book right outta the window.

Here's To Imperfection

Untitled When I was younger I strove for perfection. In school you're naturally encouraged to be the best, to get full marks on a test or colour perfectly within the lines. You're pushed at every layer of education to improve on your previous. Yet when was the last time someone asked you what you got in your GCSEs?

Review | Bongo's Bingo

Untitled

I remember when we first went to Bongo's Bingo. It was a team activity at work and when bingo was offered up I was a little apprehensive. I'm from a small village where bingo happens once a week on a Wednesday and it's never anything that lit up my life with joy. But Bongo's Bingo ain't your regular number calling.
