I've been requested a lot of times over the years of blogging to do the Bestfriend Tag, but it's been hard talking my bestie into doing so. but when I suggested it once again and he said he would I thought I better get this up before he changes his mind!

"After an unprecedented series of natural disasters threatened the planet, the world's leaders came together to create an intricate network of satellites to control the global climate and keep everyone safe. But now, something has gone wrong: the system built to protect Earth is attacking it, and it becomes a race against the clock to uncover the real threat before a worldwide GeoStorm wipes out everything and everyone along with it."

Prayer To The Blessed Virgin. Never known to fail. Oh most beautiful flower of Mount Carmel, faithful Mother of the Son of God, Immaculate Virgin assist in this necessity. Oh Star of the Sea help me and show heein you are my Mother. Oh Holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and Earth, I humbl beseech you from the bottom of my heart to succour in my necessity. There are none that can withstand your powers, Mary conceived without sin. Pray for us who have recourse to thee. Sweet Mother I place this cause in your hands. Thank you for your mercy towards me and mine. This prayer must be said for three days, and after that request will be granted and the prayer must be published.

I really think that Easter time is a wonderful time, and since yesterday was Easter Sunday and today is Easter Monday I thought I would do the Easter tag. I was brought up Catholic so Easter time for myself and my family, just like any other special occasion, has always been about being together as a family making memories and eating a lot of yummy food - and a lot of chocolate!

Thankfully April is finally here and I am so happy about it! Does anyone else feel like it took way to long to come? I don't know if it's to do with all of the stuff that has been going on in my life recently or snow and dull weather we have been having but I really feel like March went on forever.

2012 was the going to be the end of the world according to Nostradamus, but thanks to John Cusack, the world was saved and we don’t have to worry about a prophetic apocalypse told by someone centuries ago. To me, 2011 was a year where I saw maybe one gig, Godspeed you black emperor, in December. So I decided that if it was going to be the end of the world I'd have something to look forward to or say I experienced. Like Dave Gorman, I made a ludicrous plan that only made sense in my head, of one gig every month, halfway through including being in a different venue each month. Looking around Liverpool I thought this would be easy but funds, cancellations and blind willingness to just get a venue were what happened.

I've had ulcerative colitis now for over sixteen years, I was diagnosed at just fourteen years old after suffering for about five years and spending a whole year bed-ridden due to my health being so low, but over that year was when I started my very first blog so I supposed something good can out of that year. I've learnt that after everything I have been through my body has survived so much and that makes me a warrior, I am a colitis warrior and this is the truth about how shitty ulcerative colitis really is.

Express yourself with NEEK*'s high-glam 80s Kiss Me, Kiss Me.
I was recently contact asking if I'd like to try this lipstick and, of course being a cruelty-free brand I'd never heard of, I say yes and I'm so happy that I did. Even in the warmer months, I have the worst dry lips ever and finding a lipstick which looks and feels good can be a real nightmare but this lippie is a dream!

I have to admit that the beginning of February as so hard for me in many ways due to my personal life, I'm not scared to say that my life was in the shitter a little for a while and I never thought I'd face some of the problems that I did. The one things I did learn this February was the important people in life will always be there when you need them and will respect your views and decisions even if they don't agree with them.

At the start of this year I decided that I was going to go on an unfollowing spree on my social media networks, I unfollowed thousands of bloggers and I wanted to address this issue on my blog and explain why. I've kept following bloggers because I didn't want it to cause drama or upset anyone but I needed a clear out and I want to make it so crystal clear that the reason I unfollowed you does not make you a bad blogger whatsoever, it just means that we have different opinions and views and there is nothing wrong with that - what would it be like if we were all the same? It would be so boring. If I have unfollowed you recently, then it's been because of one of these reasons...

Gel nail polish has been all the rage recently and it’s easy to see why. With more and more DIY gel nail kits, it’s easier than ever to achieve salon quality results from the comfort of your home. Not only do gel nails last longer, but they can even strengthen your nails when done properly! It isn’t hard to get great results at the home, but there is a bit of a learning curve for beginners who are used to using traditional nail polish and not gel polish. Here are 5 dos and don’ts ever gel nail addict needs to know!

I've always loved stand up comedy; John Bishop, Jason Manford, Lee Evans, Sarah Millican, Miranda Hart and of course the legend that is Peter Kay. So when my friends kept sharing a certain comedian on facebook from Liverpool I couldn't help myself but watch it. So one afternoon I clicked on a video which had been shared by my friend Tracey, the comedian's name was Paul Smith and wow I didn't move for about two hours because I was laughing with tears so much at his performance. Feeling like a bit of a stalker I sat and watched every single video that Paul had uploaded online and within a couple of days ordered his DVD. And wow, what a DVD it is...

When I was recently contacted by Printiki* inviting me to work with them I jumped at the chance! I'd heard of Printiki lots of times in the past but had never gotten around to placing an order so when they asked me if I'd like to print off 30 pictures from them I was thrilled!

As you all probably know by now due to the number of times I've had it dyed and styled, I'm a lover of my hair. I'm one of them people that don't care about my makeup being done or leaving the house in jarmies, as long as my hair is done I am happy. But being a spoonie it's hard sometimes to find the energy to both shower and wash my hair, which is why I can't recommend investing in a dry shampoo more!

"February arrives cold, wet and grey, her gifts disguised for only the most discerning spirits to see. Gentle is our path. Gratitude is the thread we weave into the fabric of our daily lives this month, giving thanks for our simply abundant lives and asking for the gift of one thing more: grateful hearts" - Sarah Ban Breathnach.

Sunday's for me are all about relaxing and preparing for the week ahead so I usually don't bother with makeup for the day, but I was bored at my parents house and agreed for my mother to give me a mini-makeup to try out a new makeup look. So I've made this really small blog post to share the look with you all...

The winter months are is full swing and I don't know about anyone else but I get such dry, peeling, uncool lips in the colder months so I wanted to share with you, my favourite homemade lip scrub which I swear by during these months.
If you don't use a lip scrub already, I highly recommend doing so as it's a brilliant way to remove to impurities on your lips; flaky, dead, chapped and/or dry skin. Plus using a lip scrub minimises the dark spots on your lips, and keeps them looking and feeling healthier for longer. Adding a lip scrub into your daily facial routine will really benefit them.
Anyway, on to the do-it-yourself...

Think of the very well-known Disney movie Finding Nemo, or think of another Disney movie, The Little Mermaid... how colourful and bright everything was. How scary is it knowing that all of it is dying? We have lost 80-90% of Coral in Florida alone since the 1970's, and that to me is terrifying. Chasing Coral* is a 2017 Netflix Original documentary made by the awesome American filmmaker Jeff Orlowski and I wanted to make this blog post to explain to everyone why it's so important to take the time to watch it.

Something which a lot of people (even close friends) don't know about me is that my health has been that bad when I was growing up that I've been taken a daily chemotherapy tablet since I was fourteen years old - that's for over fifteen years! I've never spoken about it much on my social media accounts or on my blog before but there were times growing up where my health got so bad that I could have died. So what made me give up my daily chemotherapy, and ditch all of my treatment?
