MISGUIDED WISHLIST


Anyone else have a huge obsession with Misguided or is it just me. I feel like a huge portion of my pay check goes to them and they should be really greatful for my business. I've never had an issue with them, my orders always been right and the clothes I brought have lasted. I also love the fact they have deficient themes in their website because I basically live in black and love anything slightly more edgy and grunge style. I added a few things on here that I would love to wear when I get my confidence back with how I look and I think I might get back to feeling confident in a shorter dress much quicker than I think. Fingers crossed. Anyway these are the five things I actually need from Misguided but don't be afraid to put some links in the comments to items you want as well.... so I can defiantly not buy them. 

1. Black scarf print kimono playsuit £28
2. Burgundy roll sleeve crop top £6
3. Black floral print dress £18
4. Black suede studded dungaree playsuit 
5. Tortoise shell black sock boots £24
6. Black striped playsuit £15

Let me know which one of these is your favourite in the comments. I defiantly need 2 and 4!

TOP FIVE FOOD BLOGS


This probably isn't the post you expected from me but one thing I've found to help with my eating is by making my own food. I've decided that when I move to uni I'm going to try a plant based diet (or at least eat more plant based). I feel a lot more comfortable eating this because it is lower in calories which makes me feel less guilt when eating. Also it's way better for the environment, I mean seriously watch Cowsiracy because it will change your life. Anyway I started looking at food blogs and adapted recipes for my recipe book to help me cook for myself when I'm at uni. Granted I have made the portions smaller and currently if I Cooke then this is the only meal I have a day but it's progress. Anyway, here are my top five plant based food blogs in no particular order. 

CHEAP LAZY VEGAN (www.thecheaplazyvegan.com)
So I first found Rose's YouTube channel and instantly subscribed because most people think veganism is kinda expensive and requires you to only use fresh ingredients. Her recipes are really simple and require minimal ingredients making them affordable, perfect for any student. Fun fact, the recipes I've tried taste really good and you should defiantly try the creamy pumpkin pasta recipe (go to archive and click October 2016) because it's so simple but will change your life. 

PICK UP LIMES (www.pickuplimes.com)
This is another one I found on YouTube first and I found Sadia's channel very easy to follow and relaxing to watch (sounds dumb I know). She's a nutritionist which makes me feel very reassured that what I'm eating is healthy and good for me. Her recipes also taste really good and are easy to make which is a bonus. One of my favourite posts was the vegan pantry essentials which will help me a lot at uni to make sure I have all the right foods in my cupboard. 

LIVS HEALTHY LIFE (www.livshealthylife.com)
Now I've been following Livs blog and channel for the longest. I think the first video I watched was her lunch bento box video (because I was looking for food to take to work) and I just find her explanations really easy to follow and her recipes always sound and look amazing. Obviously she does really healthy home cooked recipes but she also does a huge amount of baking and vegan comfort food. Honestly I don't really want to eat any of that at the moment but I love her healthier dinner recipes and I feel like I can eat loads of her recipes without worrying and without feeling guilty. 

FROM MY BOWL (www.frommybowl.com)
This is written by Caitlin Shoemaker and I find her recipes are perfect for students. She makes easy five minute the recipes and recently posted 5 Mexcian recipes for $5 each which is worth a read. I also love the fact she does t cook with oil which makes all her dishes really healthy and lower in calories and fat. She also does a lot of meal prep which is ideal for students and they can save money by not wasting food. 

THE FULL HELPING (www.thefullhelping.com)
Now one of the main reasons I love this blog is that it also tackles eating disorders and body image mainly because Gena has battled anorexia. For me I find this really comforting and helpful because I need help improving my relationship with food and I feel like there are recipes that are helping to improve that gradually. She also offered nutritional counselling which is amazing if you want to talk to someone who understands where you are. There are also some really lovely recipes on here so the blog is perfect for anyone. If you're not convinced check out her Instagram, it will give you food envy. 

So those are the food blogs I reccomend you follow. Cooking defiantly helps in my ED recovery because I like to know what goes into my food but it may not work for you. Just know every person is different and if you start to slip again (we've all been there) please go back to the doctor or a specialist. Also you don't have to be in recovery to follow some great food blogs. Go check them out and let me know some of your favourite recipes.

ED RECOVERY (and post exam update)

Hey guys! I know I have a habit of saying I'm back then leaving for two months (whoops) but I'm really feeling my blog at the moment. I've had a lot on my plate with my eventful diagnosis and exams (which went well by the way). I received an unconditional off from my favourite uni so I'm going either way. That defiantly took the pressure off but I still work reall hard. Too hard according to my mum. I've also started working a lot more to get money saved for uni which has been challenging considering I work in food service and I have an eating disorder. The two don't really mix well and I've been struggling. I have my ups and downs (like yesterday I had pudding after dinner) but I still find myself obsessed with my weight and calories. Despite this I feel like this time I can finally beat this thing because I'm. it doing it by myself. I have my mum who supports me but doesn't nag me about eating or constantly tells me I'm fine. I know it's really hard for her but I'm so greatful because it makes me feel like in the near future I won't have to worry and painc about food. However, I still struggle a lot. I always have to know what I'm eating and I can't go to restaurants without knowing the nutritional information or looking at the menu online first. I know I'm still not eating enough but it was more than it was a few mine this ago so I'm counting that as progress. I'm not really sure I want to go into anymore detail but I wanted to write down a few things Amin,y to let you guys know I'm doing okay and to let other people with eating disorders know that it is going to take time. I've had mine for over three years know and I've only started to get help. You just have to be patient. This was kind of more of a filler post but hopefully k should have some more cheery content for you guys soon.

BEING DIAGNOSED WITH AN EATING DISORDER

Hey guys! So I've been gone for a really long time and I know I should get back into blogging with something lighthearted and fun but I've had a couple of serious changes in my life that have made me think about the direction my blog is taking. I've been officially diagnosed with an eating disorder. I say officially because it's something I've been dealing with on and off for a long time but it's only recently that a medical professional has sat me down and said the words eating disorder. It just seems more real. It's now an issue my family and close friends are aware of which really scares me. The amount of people that tell me I'm fine how I am or I'm becoming too skinny is ridiculous. It really doesn't help me and makes me feel worse about the whole thing. I know I have to deal with this because I want to go to uni without worrying that I'll make myself ill which is why I have decided to something about it. I always thought I wasn't skinny enough to have an eating disorder (sounds really dumb I know) which is why I think I was scared to tell anyone or go to a doctor because I thought they would just roll their eyes and send me on my way. Recently my best friend told me that eating diorders happen to people regardless of gender and size because it depends on the person. This also got me thinking about my blog and the direction it was taking. Recently I haven't really been feeling it and I think that's because I was bored of my content. I loved writing it three years ago but I've changed so much since then and I've accepted things about me that I hated when I first started blogging. I am still going to post my favourite products and tags and typical girly blogger stuff but I want the main content to be about me and getting better. I mean it's mainly going to be based around my recovery from my eating disorder but I also wanted to talk about my anxiety and other topics I've been to afraid to say out loud. To be honest I don't care who reads it's just my way of getting things off my chest to make my life a little bit less stressful because I really want to get better. 

I know some people will find this weird that I've wrote this for a bunch of strangers in the Internet to read but it's not just about me. There are so many people who are in the position I was a year ago where you don't know how to ask for help or don't know how to get the words 'I have an eating disorder' to come out of their mouth. Yes, it helps me to write my feelings on my blog but I also want people in the same position as me to read it. Or just to get some support from a stranger across the world. I don't want to have unload everything on my poor mum who's been through hell (thanks to me) the last few weeks. 

So those are the changes I'm going to be making to my life. Come and follow me on the weird and probably slightly depressing road to recovery.

RUPAUL'S DRAG RACE SEASON 9 CAST REVIEW


Hey guys I'm back with another Drag Race themed post but I'm literally bursting with excitement over the meet the queens video I just had to write this post. I feel like this season has a good mix of queens with a range of styles of drag so I'm excited to see what this season brings.

So to start things off, I'm team Aja all the way. I've been following Aja for a couple of years and her lip sync skills are incredible. If she s ever in the bottom the other queen should definitely be scared. Her look was also probably the strongest and most polished out of all the other queens and I'm not saying that because I'm biased. I was also really impressed with Nina Bo'Nina Brown (that name is amazing) and her looks are very original and impressive. I also have been following Peppermint for a while and I think that it's so cool that she is technically the first openly trans woman to be on the show (except maybe Monica) and I really hope that she is given the chance to discuss it if she wants to. I also love Shea and I knows shes pretty talented so I'm excited to see what she brings. I also quite like Charlie Hides I mean she doesn't even look 52 out of drag. I think shes going to be really funny and I have a feeling she might dominate snatch game. Her looks I think will be very different from the younger queens so I'm excited to see her on the show. The fishiest queen of the season is obviously Farrah Moan. She's one of my best friends favourite queens so she was very excited and I was to an extent. I'm worried that she will rest on pretty, which isn't necessarily bad I mean look at Courtney Act. I just think that this bunch of queens she can't just rely on pretty to get her through to the next week. Farrah prove me wrong. I can also tell that the bitch of the season is gonna be Kimora which is probably going to be very entertaining. I also think her looks are going to be very strong on the runway (but not Aja strong). I have to say the two queens that least impressed me were Trinity Taylor and Eureka (sorry) just because their videos weren't very memorable to me. Sometimes I feel like pageant queens can be very similar and I can also tell who the pageant queens are (not always though) so I was a little bit worried when Trinity said that was her style because that was the only think I remembered from her video. Eureka just didn't stand out to be and I think that could potentially be her downfall because there are some big personalities (I'm looking at Kimora) and you can't risk fading into the background.

So just from looking at the meet the queens I think you can tell who the strongest queens are, Just going off the video i think the top three will be Aja, Nina Bo'Nina and either Shea or Peppermint. However, there's always time for the queens to prove me wrong.

Do you watch Drag Race? If so who's video stood out to you?

TOP FIVE DRAG RACE QUEENS



Hey guys! So if you don't know me very well this post might seem a bit weird but let me  just share a quick fact about me. I love drag queens. Rupauls drag race is my favourite show and I just love the art of drag (which does sound a bit weird). So I thought to celebrate the 9th season I'd do a few posts about my favourite drag queens and my favourite episodes from the show because the anticipation is literally killing me. So I thought I'd share my favourite queens from past seasons even though the task was quite difficult. Before I start, a few special mentions to Adore, Sharon, Latrice and Raja who were close to being on this list. 

5. Raven. The true winner of season 2. I think Raven has been very influential after drag race with her great makeup and fashion sense. Honestly the girl always looks flawless, seriously I dare you to try and find a bad photo of Raven. I also feel like there were two more challenges she should have won but we don't want to start that one again. I'm just a huge fan of her polished looks and I'm obsessed with fashion photo ruview. 

4. Trixie Mattel. Trixie is one of those queens that defiantly improved after her season. I actually like her on her season and was so excited when she was brought back. I think she was holding back with her makeup and comedy and was super excited when UNHhhh came out (if you haven't seen it get on the world of wonder YouTube channel now) because she just cracks me up. Also her style and makeup is very original and I love it. 

3. Jinkx Monsoon.  I have always been a jinkx monsoon fan and she deserved to win. I went to see her in late November for her Christmas show with Major Scales and it was the funniest show I've been to. Even if you weren't a fan you would have been after the show because it was incredible. If you get a chance to see Jinkx you honestly won't regret it. 

2. Katya. I'm not even going to try to spell her full name. Can we just talk about how amazing Katya was on All Stars. Her read you wrote you verse had me shook. I think Katya is one of the funniest queens to come on drag race and her mum is just adorable. I also like katyas weird style and accessories and she deserved to win all stars. #rigged. (Joking don't hurt me I still love Alaska). 

1. Bianca Del Rio. I feel this needs no explanation. Her looks are always flawless and she always cracks me up. I'm so excited to see her next month, it's gonna be amazing. 

Do you watch Rupaul's drag race and if so do you agree with my list? Let me know who your favourite RPDR queen is in the comments.

2017 LET'S GET SICKENING!!!

Hey guys. Sorry I haven't been that present but Christmas was quite busy. With seeing family and work and revision for mocks (that went badly) and watching Netflix I haven't found the time. Anyway, to put it bluntly, 2016 has been an absolute shitshow not just for me, but for the entire world. I want to make 2017 better for me so I thought I'd share my five goals with you with th hope it makes me more likely to stick with them. 

1. Revise more. I've brought myself a calendar so I can plan my resign because I've got my A2 exams  coming up and I really want to do as well as I can. I have thre exams in one day (yes, six hours of exams on a Friday) and I'm not going to as well I can because I'm going to be exhausted so I need to do really well on my retakes and other units so I need to work my tiny little butt off to do that.

2. Be more social. So I case you couldn't tell, I don't get out muck but that's something that's going to change this year. I really want to make the effort to visit my friends at uni (,a inky for the great drag shows in London) and just go out with my fiends at college more. 

3. Make my own descions. So I try to make people happy instead of making my own descions which I wouldn't reccomend. So when I'm making imports descions, like if I want to go to uni or not, that is going to my choice and not my mum or my teacher because I'm the only one who knows what I want and I'm going to stand by that.

4. Be more careful with my spending. So I spent a lot of money over the Christmas period on stuff that I didn't need. when my bank statement arrived I nearly had heart failure at how thick it was. When I'm buying something (espically online) I'm going to think so I really need that before I buy it because if I go to uni I'm going to need all the money I can get. 

5. Eat healthier. So I eat a lot of crap and I've had "food issues" on and off for the past two years and 2017 is the year I'm going to get rid of it forever. So I've decided that eating healthier will help me fell better and stop all the issues I've had in the past.
