My Bad Ass Boy Bitch Playlist



Nobody likes an argument, this past week has been quite an argument driven week for me, mainly avoiding them, I don't think thats something we should avoid talking about, everyone has them.  A couple years ago I wouldn't mind arguing, I of course wouldn't enjoy it, but it wouldn't bother me like it does now, I now try to avoid at all costs. 

This week I've learnt something that I could've done with knowing a while ago, and I'm going to share it. If an argument is brewing, or even better, happening, put your phone down and put on a bad ass bitch playlist. Take your anger, change it to playful anger, sassy songs really help. I've got a small handful of songs that really help when I just need that push. 

1. IDGAF - Dua Lipa 
"You say you're sorry, But it's too late now, So save it, get gone, shut up"

2. This Is Why We Cant Have Nice Things - Taylor Swift 
"It was so nice being friends again, There I was giving you a second chance, But you stabbed me in the back while shaking my hand"

3. I Did Something Bad - Taylor Swift
"Oh, you say I did something bad, Then why's it feel so good, good?"

4. Bad Reputation  - Joan Jett
"An' I'm only doin' good when I'm havin' fun, An' I don't have to please no one"

5. Bad Blood - Taylor Swift 
"Still got scars in my back from your knives, So don't think it's in the past, these kind of wounds they last and they last"

6. Lies - Emma Blackery
"You can play your songs, All that you want, Cause you're in the past, Where you belong"

Be sure to check out these songs and if you like them add them to your playlists!! And remember, try to stay out of arguments!! 


2018, Here we go...



At the time of writing this, we are 8 days into 2018, and already I feel like so much has gone on. I am always very against new years resolutions for some reason - my mindset is that if you want to make a positive change on your life you shouldn't wait until January the first to do that. However, there is something about January that makes me at least want to make changes, it makes me want to become a better version of myself, I'm not sure if its a realistic thought but there for sure is something in the back of my mind telling me to do better.

The last few days I've been thinking of some little goals or changes I want to make around my life this year, not so much resolutions just some little things I want to do or change about myself to make this year the best one yet.

1. I really want to get a tattoo this year, I always thought as soon as I turned 18 I would get one, then 18 came and left and I'm still tattooless.

2. To travel way more - Last year I only really went away to Scotland and London and although they don't sound very much, they were both highlights of my year, exploring new places, even though they were situated in the UK was so fun to me, so for sure this year I want to venture out and explore new places. To me it's not important if I hop on a train somewhere a couple of hours away or if I get the chance to leave the country, I'm sure I'll have an amazing time no matter what I do

3. I want to get over some fears. If you know me well you'll know that I cannot even get within a 5 minute radius of any medical practice building, be that a doctor a dentist or anything in-between without me freaking out, and I'm determined that this year I am going to change that,

4. Feel confident with a solid group of friends - I think it's the most normal feeling ever to sometimes not feel like you're fitting in with people, and Its normal to have little arguments with friends, however one thing I feel I lack a lot is a solid consistent group of friends, don't get me wrong, I have lots of friends but I don't really have that 'squad' that everyone seems to have, maybe that will change this year.

5. Finally, to be way more productive. I want to start becoming way better with work and studying, but also with my blog, theres no point pretending I was a good blogger last year after my re-launch, but this year is going to be my year, so get ready to see my little posts popping up more often!

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you all have had a great christmas and a happy new year!

The Memory Box


After talking to Hollie (www.ItsHollieAnn.com) yesterday, I briefly mentioned my memory box to her, since then all I've thought about is writing a post about my little box of wonder, I'm really unsure about how interesting this will be to read about but I love the little stories behind everything I keep.

Like most of us, my memory box is far from perfect, its a cluttered little thing on the side of my chest of drawers, as pictured above. The lid is struggling to close, so I really need to start thinking about getting another, but I don't know how I feel about replacing Susan, just yet.


So this is a strange one to start with.. This is a pile of confetti from a couple different events I've been too, I think they are from Summer in the City, and Louise Live. I think this shows how much of a hoarder I really am. I'm glad we got that out the way.


Train tickets! some people would print out photos to remember their trips.. Not me apparently, I like to collect the Tickets. One of these trips was when I went to visit my best friends up in Scotland.


I'm sure this one is a little less weird, to keep Cards, I have a stack of a few of my favourite Christmas and Birthday cards from the last few years. I have a sort of competition between all of the cards I've received each year, I only allow myself to keep 3-4 cards so that I don't go overboard. 


This is slightly more weird than the cards - again, but I like to keep envelopes too.. Let me explain! My friend Emily, ALWAYS decorates the envelopes, I always feel like they are too special for the bin, I love looking back at how different she decorates them for my Birthdays and Christmas, and its always a giggle when she hands me my card and its got new doodles all over them. 


I think postcards are so cute! This is one I kept from my parents from when they visited the Vatican City. Receiving one in the post just seems so special to me, I love them!


I am definitely too attached to these to ever bin them, these are lanyards that I've received at gigs that I've been too, the one on the left was from being in the OMFG package at the Busted concert, and the two others are from having Meet and Greet at Emma Blackery Gigs. 


This is a silly one really, but its just a little reminder of a really nice day out I had with some friends, We went to play Crazy Golf, and this was the score sheet, I didn't win though. 


I think this might be another 'Jac the Hoarder' things, and I think its pretty obvious what it is ahaha. I got this on my 18th, I was actually surprisingly desperate for a 'big 18 badge' and I got it! WooHoo!


This is my little polaroid collection, I printed some of these off with my HP Sprocket! I recommend buying one of those so much! I hate how digital photos are now, I think its so much more special to have the actual photos. 


Like the lanyards - a couple of photos upwards, are from concerts or events Ive attended, from concerts to book signings, I just can't say bye to them. 


From my concert tickets, you have a small insight to my music taste, VERY varied! I don't really have a favourite type of music, but I love going to gigs, so any chance I get to go to one I try my best to get there! 


Whenever I go to Liverpool with friends, I always go to the TopShop Photo Booth, the wind machine makes for a lot of laughs! I hope to eventually have such a big collection of these with so many people.. 


Last but not least, these are a few things from my sisters wedding, I love keeping these safe, It was such an amazing day and I'm still so happy to have been a part of it!

I hope you enjoyed having a little nose into my memory box! Catch you around soon!
