Celebrate Mum With Breakfast In Bed

Recently, I was inspired by Leesa to share my Mother’s Day essentials. I know I’m British and we celebrated Mother’s Day in March but I know I have some American followers and also, it is my mum’s birthday soon so if I’m feeling nice she might get breakfast in bed!

withallmylovefromlucy (1)

I think the best way to start Mother’s Day is breakfast in bed. Really cozy with lots of pillows and blankets, make sure your mum has a really good mattress, if your mum is looking to buy a new one tell her to check out a mattress company so your morning won’t be ruined by annoying mattress springs or bumps!

 My mum’s go-to breakfast is toast with lots of butter and a little bit of Marmite, I’m a hater of Marmite but my mum is definitely a lover. My mum is also a fan of a nice croissant, I’m not sure if you’re meant to eat croissants with honey or if that is just my mum but she loves it so we’ll let her off! I don’t think my mum could ever have breakfast without a cup of tea (how very British of her) so of course that is an essential. Is it really mother’s day if you don’t give your mum chocolates? The answer to that is no. My mum has a massive sweet tooth so if I’m ever stuck on what to buy her a box of chocolates, especially the fancy ones from Thornton’s, is a life saver!

Feel free to write a post about what you would do for your mum on Mother’s day, or any day you feel like treating your mum, I’d love to see what everybody else comes up with.

With all my love, from Lucy

Birthday Tag

Today, as you are reading this, is my birthday! So what better post to do than the birthday tag?

Just to clarify, at the time of writing I am 14 years and 360 days old.

1.) When is your birthday?
My birthday is on 4th March

2.) How old are you turning? (Or if your birthday recently passed, how old did you turn?)

I turn 15, not an interesting age at all

3.) What was you’re favourite present that you’ve ever received?

I don’t think I’ve ever had a birthday when I didn’t love my presents so I don’t know what my favourite would be. Probably my white high top converse purely because I wear them so much!

4.) Are you/did you have a party this year? if so what are you doing?

I will have gone out for a meal with my friends yesterday as you’re reading this. But not a proper party.

5.) How do you usually celebrate your birthday?

I usually just go out for a meal with my friends, quite boring but its lovely!

6.) What was the most memorable birthday that you had?

I have the worst memory and I can’t really remember any of my birthdays! That is so bad!

7.) If you had an unlimited amount of money what would you do for your birthday?

I would take a group of my friends to New York and we’d have a massive shopping spree.

8.) What’s your birthday wish list?

Some new clothes, some makeup, I don’t really have a list this year. Next week’s post will probably be a what I got for my birthday so you will all find out what I have been given.

9.) If you only had one birthday left, what would you do for your birthday?

I would throw a huge party with everyone I have ever met in my whole life!

10.) Show a picture from your birthday, preferably an embarrassing one

1 

This is a picture from my 5th birthday party, the theme was pirates and princesses. I think my dad and brother had more fun than I did! Also, ignore the “8 years ago” part, I had to scroll through my dad’s twitter for ages to find this picture.

11.) Do you have any birthday traditions? 

No, I donm’t really. I usually go out to eat with my family but I don’t think we’re doing that this year.

12.) What’s your favourite part about your birthday?

Honestly, I love the attention! And the cake, obviously.

13.) What’s one thing that changed a lot since your last birthday?

Apart from my age, the only thing that has changed is my hair length! I think I’m pretty much the same.

14.) Have you ever been thrown a surprise party or have you ever thrown one for someone?

I’ve never had a surprise party or thrown one for somebody but I would love to have someone throw me one! I love surprises!

I hope you enjoyed that and learnt something new about me!

With all my love, from lucy

Body Positivity And Nicer Internet

I know I’ve been posting a lot recently but that is because something happened yesterday that I wanted to address.

Somebody (I’m not naming names because I don’t want to give them the satisfaction) followed my blog and liked a few of my posts. This was lovely, I always feel so good about myself when this happens, it makes me really proud. But then I got a notification that they’d commented on this post that is actually one of my favourite posts.

The comment said “chubby body. but pretty smile.” I mean, it makes it even worse that they didn’t bother with capital letters!

I’ve always known that I’m a bit chunky and that is how it has been my entire life but it isn’t something I’d expect a complete stranger to point out and blatantly tell me.

I has a pretty thick skin, things like this never get to me and this is no exception (I think having an older brother who constantly picks on me helps with this) but imagine if I had previously struggled with an eating disorder, imagine if I had already lost a stone before taking those photos and was really proud of myself,  imagine if  that one small comment was about to ruin my life.

The person who left the comment was incredibly lucky that they said it to me and not somebody else that would develop serious issues because of 2 small words.

Would you go up to a stranger in the street and tell them that they are chubby? So why would you say it online?

Also, I’d just like to say that you are beautiful, maybe not the person that told me I was chubby, but everybody else is gorgeous in their own way- chubby or not.

I once read something on twitter that said flowers and fairy lights are beautiful and they look nothing alike so you are beautiful and so is that person over there even though you look completely different.

What I’m trying to say in this long-winded post is that no matter what you look like, you are beautiful and mind what you say on the internet because it could really hurt people.

Real Girls Eat Cake!

Soundtrack To My Life Tag

I was watching Lucy Moon’s soundtrack to my life video yesterday and I thought, I love music I should do this as a quick mid-week post for you!

I know I have said this a fair few times but my Spotify is lucyniblock so if you like the sound of any songs mentioned have a cheeky look at my playlists!

Now that the self promo is out the way, lets begin the tag!

1. Song you listen to when you’re happy?

I’ve got two for this one.  Got My Favourite by Jack Penate or Let’s Dance To Joy Division by The Wombats.

2. Song you listen to when you’re sad?

I’m not a very sad person, and if I am I don’t have songs that I listen to. But a song that makes me sad is Seasons Of Love specifically the Glee version. Glee lovers will understand!

3. What song will you have at your wedding?

I’ve always thought Fathfully by Journey would be such a lovely song for my first dance. I mean, just the line “I’m forever yours faithfully” just screams wedding!

4. What song do you dance around the house to?

I’ll dance around and sing along to any song that is playing but if I had to chose my favourite one it would be I Want You Back by the Jackson 5. If you haven’t ever dfanced around to this, 10/10 would recommend.

5. Song you listen to when you’re angry?

I don’t really have specific songs for when I’m angry but Do Watcha by McFly just seems like an angry song!

6. Last song you listened to?

I am currently listening to Do Ya by McFly. It is probably one of my favourite McFly songs, along with She Left Me, Little Joanna and Sorry’s Not Good Enough.

7. Song you want to see live?

I would love to see anybody live but if I had to choose one, I’d go for Love In A Box by The Workday Release.

8. Your karaoke song?

Anybody that knows me, will tell you I can’t sing to save my life so karaoke probably isn’t great for the people around me. But I love singing so my karaoke pick would either be Stacy’s Mom by Fountains Of Wayne or I Want It That Way by the Backstreet Boys.

9. Song with the most memories attached?

The whole Meet The Vamps album reminds me of the good times of year 7, Ignition by R.Kelly reminds me of my brother and Dancing In The Moonlight by Toploader remind me of when my dad had it as his ringtone in about 2005.

10. Guilty pleasure song?

I have a whole playlist with 68 song on but if I had to pick my top 3 it would be Evergreen by Will Young which was number 1 on my date of birth, One Step Closer by S Club Juniors and 5,6,7,8 by Steps.

11. Favourite song from a musical?

Does High School Musical count? I’m saying it does so I can say a classic You Are The Music In Me.

12. Song you hate the most?

There are quite a few songs that I hate but if I had to pick just one at the moment it would be Shoutout To My Ex it is just so annoying!

13. Favourite song of all time?

That is by far the hardest question! I think it would have to be Obviously by McFly. It isn’t one of my favourite songs by McFly at the minute but it is one that I will never not love! Even if I’m not so keen on the band I will always love Obviously.

I tag all of you reading this to do your own version whether you love music or not!

With all my love, from Lucy

My 2017 Goals

HAPPY NEW YEAR! If 2016 wasn’t your year, lets hope 2017 is.

After reading Eve Bennett’s blog post about her 2017 goals, I thought I’d do my own version.

I am just saying these as things I’d like to do, because if I say they are set in stone I will hate myself when they are all massive flops!

1. Write a blog post at least once every two weeks, if not every week. I adore writing and I love updating this blog but it is just finding the time and not being a very imaginative or creative person makes it so hard for me to think of things to write about!

2. Try to eat a bit healthier. I’m not saying I’m going on a massive diet or anything like that, but I have a massive sweet tooth and eat a lot more cake than I should so I am just going to try and cut out cakes and biscuits and chocolate etc etc

3. Start revising! Even though my mocks are next school year, they will still be in 2017. I always thought I could do what my brother did and just wing every thing and it still go to plan. Turns out I’m not as intelligent as I thought I was!

4. Change my style up a bit. I would love to be really fashionable and stylish but I have just accepted the fact that I’m not. But that doesn’t mean I can’t try!

5. Branch out my music taste. At the minute I’m a fan of 5sos, Fall Out Boy, The Workday Release, Jack Penate, McFly, The 1975, Dodie as well as a few Panic! At The Disco songs. As you can tell, I do have quite an odd music taste but I love finding new music so if you know of anything you think I’d like, let me know!

6. Post on Instagram more, and not just selfies! I love Instagram and I would love to use it more for photos other than selfies.

They are the only ones I can think of right now so we’ll leave it there!

With all my love, from Lucy
