Since starting full-time blogging, I've never really taken a break and taken time out for myself. I've always just got on whatever needs doing and got on with it, but over the past couple of months, my health has really started taking a bad turn for the worse. I'm not blaming blogging for that in any way, shape or form but I do feel taking some time from blogging and social media will help me recover. Now I'm not going to be completely off social media so you may see some tweets here and there and a post or two on instagram but I am going to come off my blog for a month or two and get myself well again. 

I feel like I've been on this none-stop rollercoaster ride for a while and I think it's finally time to come off, relax and settle down a little bit. I stress so easy and I take on too much than I should, I know this, but I also know that if I keep doing this it's only going to be me who suffers. So for now, I would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who supports me and takes the time to read my blog, and I hope you all have a wonderful couple of months ahead. I'll be back soon!

With love, Alisha Valerie. x

Coconut Lane Wishlist

Coconut Lane is one of my favourite online stores, and if you're a blogger I'm more than sure you'll have heard of them too. Coconut Lane was set up by the wonderful Charlotte Stagg and as I really love their stuff I thought I would share with you, my wishlist of Coconut Lane.

Taking Care of You

I'm guilty of being someone who's always looking after and taking care of someone else; my husband, our dog Daisy, my friends and family, other bloggers, basically everyone I can help in someway or another I will put my whole heart and soul into helping them and making them feel better. Which means a lot of the time I forget to take care of me, which means that I hardly ever get a big break time for myself so I wanted to share with you some of my favourite ways that I like to take care of myself whether I have five minutes or an hour to myself, or on days where my mental health and/or anxiety is bad or whenever I'm generally having a bad day. These are some of my favourite things to do...

Phil Blogs: I'm Not Obsessed, I'm Passionate | TAG

I was tagged in the "My Boyfriend Takes Over My Blog Post" TAG so I spoke to Phil about it and he seemed more than happy to be involved. If you don't know what this TAG is all about, you basically let your boyfriend, or in my case husband, take over your blog and write a blog post about something they love which is totally different to what you usually post about.
Phil, of course, chose to blog about his passion for wrestling...

What I've Been Loving Lately | TV Edition

This blog post was planned to be my February Favourites but since I haven't been doing too well and have spent a lot of time relaxing and getting better, I have been watching a lot of new TV shows and movies. So I thought instead I would share what I've been loving in the past few months with you all, this is going to be part one of two TV edition blog posts.
