Spreading a little bit of happiness

Wouldn't it be nice if we had a switch on our bodies so that on bad days we could just say NO & make it stop!

It's been a very poorly week for me with the M.E & I've been pretty much bedbound. I know it's because I dared to do something fun.. Payback is never nice when you have a chronic illness, but it's slightly easier when you have something to show for it. If you read my previous post you will know I was going to a party with some of the Crown & Glory Glitterati girls. (The Glitterati is a montly subscription box of hair accessories for those of you who are not familiar with it)! It was a Mad Hatter's tea party to be precise & it was really lovely. I am so glad I made it & finally meeting Sophie & Gareth, as well as the lovely ladies was great. My little Miss took a shine to them both!

We were treated with delicious afternoon tea, bubbles & the most amazing goodie bags which seemed to have an endless amount of stuff in them!! There were things from some of my favourite independent businesses, as well as a special piece of Crown & Glory, so I was very chuffed. Sophie even gave my girlie a goodie bag & she was (& still is) super grateful :-)

Big thanks also to my fab friend Sian who made me some brilliant accessories to go with the Alice in Wonderland theme. I absolutely love them & had lots of comments about them so thank you sweetie!

I won't go on too much about how bad I've been as I am still trying to stay positive. My positivity did waver during the week for the first time this year but I always find that happens when mega bad days (as oppose to the usual bad ones!!) go on & on. I have started on some supplements - Q10 g Vitamin B12 - so will see how they help. I'm feeling more sparkly again now & am just taking each day at a time.

I thought I would share a few of my favourite quotes as I do love a good positive affirmation & have various ones dotted around the house. I've just put a hanging frame thing up in the conservatory with some postcards I got from Lucky Dip Club which makes me smile lots.

So I'll leave you with these...

"Don't let anyone ever dull your sparkle"

"A smile is the prettiest thing you can wear"

"Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times if you only remember to turn on the light"

"It may be stormy now but it never rains forever"

"Enjoy the little things in life as one day you will look back & realise they were the big things"

"When it rains look for rainbows & when it's dark look for stars"

"The butterfly is proof that something beautiful can emerge from something completely falling apart"

"The best people are those whose tutus are a little twisted" (this might be the best one!)

Keep smiling :-)



Crown and Glory Glitterati unboxing February 2016

Each month, the arrival of our Crown & Glory Glitterati boxes seems to come around so quickly! The anticipation & excitement of what's in the box never goes away.

So without further ado, here is February's fantastic box. It was a rockabilly twist on the Valentines month, inspired by pin-up culture, mods & the late Amy Winehouse.

There were two different coloured boxes this time. Pink was Love themed & black was Hate, with the same items but in different colours. I got the pink one & I really do LOVE it!

In our boxes were:

Glitter scroll heart headband
RRP £20

Lips print bow headband
RRP £15

Cherry hair clip
RRP £5

Cupid's arrow barrette
RRP £5

Velvet rose hairclip
RRP £6

A gorgeous box & I know I'll be wearing it all lots.

I really don't know how Sophie & Gareth come up with such amazing ideas each month. I also had a little giggle earlier at how much Crown & Glory stuff I have. To say I never really wore stuff in my hair until I discovered this amazing secret group is hilarious. I don't feel right without it now!

I wore the lips print headband last week & within about half an hour I had been complimented 3 times on it :-)

There have been a few Glitterati parties already but I've not been able to make any of them, however next weekend I am actually going to the Manchester one & I am super excited. It's a Mad Hatter's tea party & I can't wait to get dolled up and meet some of my fellow glitter loving girls (& Gareth!). I will likely dedicate a whole post to it so watch this space!!
