Describe the last moment you felt really, truly blissful..

It's hard to say when the last time was that I felt truly blissful.. I try and make the most out of things so I'm always happy with whatever I've got. It could have been last night when I figured out how to do these really hard long multiplaction sums.. or when I curled up in bed last night listening to the rain outside with my hot water bottle or it could even be right now while I'm eating Tesco chocolate (which I'm meant to be saving for baking with but couldn't resist it) so I really have no ioda..


What about you? When was the last time you felt truly blissful?

The Single Woman 30 Day Challenge: Day 13 - Describe how you met the last person you texted and talk about your friendship/relationship.

Hahahahah! I am LOVING todays thing! This is gonna be a fun one! :) For more information on The Single Woman 30 Day Challenge check out  is HERE. If you've took part leave a link below to your post I'd love to read it.

The last person I texted was thrust upon me when I was born and I had no choice to decide if I wanted a friendship with her. (Considering I couldn't speak and had just been born it's a moot point) For 20 damn years I've suffered knowing her and no one feels my pain..

There has been hair pulling, nipping, crazy outfits (like this one below)
 



bad hairstyles, shouting, crying, biting, laughter and more but it's the sort of relationship you have with your sister isn't it? and honestly I wouldn't change any of those times because it has made our relationship all the better!




Or perhaps we are just a bit bonkers! No one can understand our relationship and most of the time neither do I. Literally we will be arguing one minute and the next second one of us will say "OMG have you watched The Tomorrow People* and we start gossipping about that, argument forgotten.. until a later time ofcourse!




We never agree on anything because of course I'm always right she just doesn't understand that yet but she will... one day! ;) Together we have both been through so many bad times and came out the other side but we have also shared the happiest times of all and there the ones that count. I'd be truly lost without my big sister she means the world to me and more and I know there will be more mad times ahead of us as we really are just beginning! :)

 
What about YOU? How did you meet the last person you texted?

The Single Woman 30 Day Challenge: Day 12 - Your proudest accomplishment.

Omg day 12 already am being so open with myself during this challenge I hope I continue to be! For more info on the challenge check out HERE. If you've took part leave a link below to your post I'd love to read it.

My proudest accomplishment is...

... still standing here today! From the years of bullying in school, my occurring battle with OCD and Anxiety after everything that people have threw at me I'm proud to say I'M STILL STANDING and no matter what anyone throws my way I will get through it.

The time stops now for people to try and tell me I'm not worth it! Because I am! I am worth it and I deserve to be happy along with everyone else. I will fight for what I believe in and fight to make my dreams come true.. (whatever they may be)

We make our own happiness in this world and if I believe I can make myself happy and do what I can and believe in what I do then I will be happy. (As long as there is chocolate and a book store near by ofcourse!)

All the bad choices I've made, lies and drama I'll put it down to be being young and put I will be strong enough to accept it, let it all go and put it behind me in the past where it belongs. I can't change anything or the outcome of situations that have happened but I can change the way I move forward now and the way my future goes. (I'm actually proud of that.. I need remind myself of this and drill it into my head to start really believing it)

As Tulisa says.. in her song Young..

"-I make mistakes that I learn from
Cause I'm young, yeah I'm young
I'm sorry I'm not even done
Cause I'm young, yeah I'm young
Don't worry 'bout what I'll become
It's just fun, it's just fun
I scream at the top of my lungs
It's just fun, it's just fun"
 
"Forgive me for what I have done 'cause I'm young"

(Even though we can't always blame things on being young because we do know right from wrong)

What about YOU? What's your proudest accomplishment?

The Single Woman 30 Day Challenge: Day 11 - Describe Your Worst/Funniest/Most Embarrassing Date

The Single Woman 30 Day Challenge: Day 11 - Describe Your Worst/Funniest/Most Embarrassing Date

Well THIS is embarrassing right here as I've NEVER been on a date but I have plenty of time to go on a few dates in the future so it's good. :) so since I can't actually talk about my worst/funniest/most embarrassing date shall I just talk about my most funny/worst/embarrassing memory? (Cause av had a few of those)

1, Gotta be when I was meeting friends at the cinema and instead of walking under the road using the footpath provided I decided to cross the road and then walk down a very steep mucky hill (It'd been raining the night before so was slippery) I climbed over the fence and started walking slowly down the hill.. literally two seconds later I had slipped and got my back and all down my trousers all muddy... a friend quickly reassured me it wasn't so bad and we carried onto the cinema. Later when I got home and checked the damage I was covered in muck! (I'd been to the cinema like that, down the town like that, and also to the shopping centre like that! :()

2, One day during the summer I'd spent roughly about 7 hours on my trampoline so when my sister called off I bounced of the trampoline and into the house.. I'd spent only about 4 minutes in the living room with her (before ya read on I am NOT crazy I was having a little off day) I was standing beside the window and got the overwhelming urge to do a seat drop so jumped up in the air put my feet out and instead of bouncing right back up again like on the trampoline (which I still thought I was on) instead i went smack down hard on the wooden floor and couldn't sit down for quite some time.. my sister went into hysterics and couldn't stop laughing.. even to this day when she needs a pick me up Megan will think of this memory and laugh again.. hysterically at my expense..

3, Another embarrassing memory was at my cousins wedding and I'd had a few to many vodka cokes and cocktails. I was so thirsty from dancing that many people were supplying me with drinks cause I kept drinking them so fast. I can't remember parts of that night although I can remember sitting down in a chair to catch my breath and falling back giggling with my legs up in the air.. (I was also wearing a dress) TBH I haven't worse a dress since and I also haven't consumed that much alcohol since. (I hated the feeling of being out of control and not remembering so I have a cocktail once a year to celebrate my birthday)

So there my top three embarrassing and worst and funny memories.. :( I can't believe am going to publish this! :O

What about you? Do you have a worst, funny or embarrassing date OR memory ya wanna share? (Please do it'll make m feel better!)

The Single Woman 30 Day Challenge: Day 10 - Google the meaning of your name and talk about how it fits or doesn’t fit you.

Ahhh omg 10 days has flown by I can't believe I've kept this up and stuck at it! Yippee I so deserve a treat at the end of this if I do everyday! :)

I am taking part in The Single Woman’s 30 Day challenge... More info is HERE. If you've took part leave a link below to your post I'd love to read it.

 Google the meaning of your name and talk about how it fits or doesn’t fit you.

Hmm... I hate this question! Is there actually a meaning out there for Kerry-Ann together? Instead of separating the Kerry from the Ann? Well.. let the search begin... :) *Fingers crossed*

I'm so shocked right now... there is.. there really is! After all these years I thought my parents named me randomly but NOW I take all that back.. I feel so special! Is that weird? Ya never get any sort of stationary with my name on it so I'm super glad it has a meaning! :)

I came across the following here: http://www.themeaningofnames.org/?n=Kerry+Ann&m=&d=&y=&go=Go so THEY own all that said about my name below.

K is for kindness, you always show. (Ohh I like this already)
 
E is for enjoy, your life can be fun! (duh! Obviously it can)
 
R is for righteous, you know when you're right. (hah ofcourse I do I'm ALWAYS right!)
 
R is for realist, the way you are. (I googled *realist* and found "a person who tends to view or represent things as they really are." on thefreedictionary.com)
 
Y is for youthful, your eternal look. (Omg! I so luurrvvee this one)
 
A is for accord, the harmony you spread.
 
N is for name, a pleasant one indeed.
 
N is for natural, the genuine side of you.
 
The name “Kerry” is of Irish origin and it means “From Ciar's People or the county of Kerry”. It’s a name commonly given to both boys and girls. There is 1 other name that is similar to this one.

The name “Ann” is of Hebrew origin and it means “Prayer”. It’s a name commonly given to girls. There are 412 other names that are similar to this one.

So my name is Irish-Hebrew? Hmm... I'm Northern Irish so I'm quite happy with that! I think this meaning sort of suits me don't you?

What about you? What has google revealed about your name? Does it match your personality?

The Single Woman 30 Day Challenge - Day 9: Your favorite “weird/funny single behavior” – Anything you do that is uniquely YOU

The Single Woman 30 Day Challenge - Day 9: Your favorite “weird/funny single behavior” – Anything you do that is uniquely YOU

I am taking part in The Single Woman’s 30 Day challenge... More info is HERE. If you've took part leave a link below to your post I'd love to read it.

What's your favourite “weird/funny single behavior” – Anything you do that is uniquely YOU.

I knew what it was even before I started writing this post! I mentioned it briefly in a previous post which is very very important in my life. OCD! (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder)

I have specific ways that things have to be done and if there done "wrong" then my anxiety goes up. My OCD is really bad at night.. It takes me ages going to bed although it used to take me hours upon hours (NO JOKE) to get ready for bed. So.. thinking about it I have been helping myself.

If I switch of a light but it doesn't feel right I will keep switching it on and off until it feels just right! I could be standing there all night long and I have before.. Not just lights, but touching something also until it feels right.

Okay.. so it's not a weird,funny or single behaviour but it's something that is uniquely me and something that I don't believe I'll ever get over.

OCD affects so many people and not that many actually know what it's like! It's awful, and hard, embarrassing and it's a struggle every single day! I dread going to bed so much so that it's the reason why I sometimes stay up all night..

No one knows how it is triggered and I wish I knew I really do. Check out this website for more info on OCD: http://www.ocduk.org/awareness-week

I used to be embarrassed and ashamed of my OCD but there are loads of people out there suffering from it.. and I'm happy to admit.. I HAVE OCD... It does not define me! It is apart of me!

Coronation Street actor and patron of OCD-UK Ian Puleston-Davies has spoken out about his experience with OCD and how to understand it better. (Watch video HERE. He has also spoke on ITV programme Lorraine. Watch that interview HERE. I believe he gives people the courage and strength to speak out about their OCD and to not hide away and be ashamed of it. It can ruin your life and is more common than anyone may think.













It's true what someone said in an OCD UK video..
 
"OCD may have won a few battles, but it won't win the war!"

What about you? What's your favourite weird/funny/single behaviour?

The Single Woman 30 Day Challenge: Day 8 - Five things that are most important to you in a future mate.

Hah! I am LOVING todays question! 

For more info on the challenge check out HERE. If you've took part leave a link below to your post I'd love to read it.

 Five things that are most important to you in a future mate.
 
1, MUST have a red room of pain..
 
2, They have to look H.O.T in a suit..
 
3, Has to want to take care of me!
 
4, Have to care about my eating habits that they want me to eat more.
 
5.. There urm.. uh initials have to be C.G
 
6, Must be CEO of their OWN company..
 
7, They have to be ALL the above although acted out by NI actor (YES NI ACTOR) JAMIE DORMAN! ;)
 
Okay... FINE back to reality.. *sighs*

If I'm honest I don't like this question, family and friends tend to always tell me "God help the man you end up with" or "the man you end up with will need an award for being with you" Yeah.. okay so the man I end up with - If I end up with a man, I mean I could end up alone with loads of books instead of cats! I can hardly look after myself so no pets allowed! - will have to have patience of a saint but really gimme a break already! It's getting boring!

There is a quote by Marilyn Monroe which my mum always maintains describes me and also tells me I shouldn't settle for someone who doesn't do it..


(I DO NOT OWN THIS IMAGE!)
I have major OCD which leaves me with really bad anxiety so if I find a man who can live with that and has patience while I do my rituals I would be a very happy woman!
 
Apart from that here are my five most important things..

1, I'm a talker and I love talking about the news, or celebs or books! So he has to be a good listener but at the same time a good communicator AND intelligent! :) I'm a bit ditsy so not too smart or I'd fall asleep. I want him to take an interest in what I tell him and I will do the same. (sometimes)

2, He has to be able to make me laugh and have a sense of humour.. if he can make me smile and laugh he could make me do anything... ;)

3, I've read Mills & Boon since for about 5 years now so I want the love and passion and romance I read on those pages especially the small little day to day gestures then it's not there in the relationship.. (I'm not a romantic person BUT am sure there's one man out there that can make me go all mushy there has to be)

4, Trust! I need trust! We have to be able to tell each other our feelings, our emotions and troubles! To lean on each other when things get bad and be there in those happy moments as well.

5, Stability: I'm sorry but I need to know if he's in it for the weekend or if he's in it long term..

Obviously there are more I want.. but those are my 5 that I believe are important AFTER the OCD. The Beatles though are correct.. when it comes down to it "all you need is love..." (and ya ca find it in a good book!)

What about you? What are your five most important things in a future mate?

The Single Woman 30 Day Challenge: Day 7 - Where you are in your life vs. where you thought you would be at this point

The Single Woman 30 Day Challenge: Day 7 - Where you are in your life vs. where you thought you would be at this point

Where you are in your life vs. where you thought you would be at this point??
 
My whole life I've never had a set mind of where I thought I would be.. I've never known what sort of job I wanted.. I've never really sat down and thought "what do I want to do with my life?" Until recently I didn't believe I had many opportunities left but one night that fleeting WTH rushed through my head again and off I went on a whim dreaming of what I want to achieve in life.
 
I didn't know where I'd be at this point in my life or what I'd be doing and I'm in retrospect I've probably saved myself a few disappointments or lost a few chances. Someone told me recently that I have my whole life ahead of me and to stop wishing it away because am only 20. (which to be true is actually young) so that's what I did.. I signed up for a Numeracy course to get my maths qualification and I'm hoping in the next year or two I will have an idea of how I want my life to pan out or what path I want to walk down but right now? I still don't have a blimming baldy... ;)
 
What about you? Where you are in your life vs. where you thought you would be at this point??

The Single Woman 30 Day Challenge: Day 6 - Sound off on the quote: “Every woman has the exact love life she wants.”

The Single Woman 30 Day Challenge: Day 6 - Sound off on the quote: “Every woman has the exact love life she wants.”

Waow day 6 already! :O Todays statement is...
 
 
 Sound off on the quote: “Every woman has the exact love life she wants.”
 
Do women really really have the exact love life they want? Well yes I certainly believe we all have the exact love life we want. If you're not 100% happy in your love life you can change it if you really want to.. right? Just like if you're single and you don't wanna be am sure there is someone willing and waiting right out in the world for ya.
 
Can I be honest? I'M HAPPY BEING SINGLE! Want to know why? Because I'm a night owl, I spend from 11pm to 3am every night blogging, writing, reading, watching telly or have even been known to dance and workout (Don't ask why) I seem to become more confident or awake at night and I love it. I especially love going to bed and curling into a ball amongst all my teddies (yes, I'm 20 and STILL have my teddies on my bed) I love that I can keep my light on to read and not have to worry about keeping someone awake.
 
I love concentrating on myself for a change and learning how to be more open and carefree or more confident in public. I like knowing I don't need to worry about anyone else... I just like the nature of being single and it's exactly what *I* want right now.. so I defo think we have the exact love life we want..
 
What about you? Do you believe women have the exact life life they want? OR do you think they don't?

The Single Woman 30 Day Challenge: Day 5 - The biggest misconception you think people have about single life

The Single Woman 30 Day Challenge: Day 5 - The biggest misconception you think people have about single life

I am taking part in The Single Woman’s 30 Day challenge... More info is HERE. If you've took part leave a link below to your post I'd love to read it.

 What's the biggest misconception you think people have about single life?

Hmm... Really? How long have you got!?! I'll list my top three...

1, You're single.. and female.. so you must upon must stay in every weekend, watch Bridget Jones and eat a full tub of ice-cream while helplessly wondering why we're single and why Mr Darcy hasn't arrived to take us away on his horse drawn carriage..  (Although now it's more like Christian Grey clad with a whip and a red room of pain!)

(I DO NOT OWN THIS IMAGE)

No this doesn't happen every weekend.. maybe.. once every couple but hey it's a good film SO WHY NOT?

2, Single and desperate.. that's another one isn't it? If you're single then you'll go with anyone. I mean you can't be picky eh?

3, You're single so you must be concentrating on your career! Though this is true to some women but can't we be single because we wanna be? Not because you think we're career driven! If in a relationship we can still have the same goals! I always get the same reply when someone asks whether I'm single. "Oh a woman concentrating on her career eh?" NO! NO! NO! It drives me mad..

There are still many to name but if I continue then I will definitely be having a full on rant and I don't think anyone wants that...

I do think most of you want this thought... ;)

What about you? What do you think is the biggest misconception people have about single life is?

The Single Woman 30 Day Challenge: Day 4 - What's your Biggest Fear as a Single Person

The Single Woman 30 Day Challenge: Day 4 - What's your Biggest Fear as a Single Person

What's your biggest fear as a single person? Well todays question has sort of stomped me! Do I be honest and tell the truth or do I tell a half truth incase someone I know reads this?

As I've said in the previous challenge posts I'm happy being single BUT should I have added a little now each time meaning I'm happy being single NOW!?

If am being terribly honest my biggest fear as a single person is well being single for life. I know, I'm 20! I've got my whole life ahead of me as some tell me but.. those who say that are already in a relationship.. so they're safe, secure, have found someone and have stability in there little couply world so do they really understand and get what they're telling me?

My guess is NO! So my answer is all in the question.. it's being a single person for life! (Touches wood so I don't jinx myself)

What about you? What's your biggest fear as a single person?

The Single Woman 30 Day Challenge: Day 3 - When has being single been really awesome?

The Single Woman 30 Day Challenge: Day 3 - When has being single been really awesome?

It's day 3 of the single woman 30 day challenge and todays question is...

Describe a moment or a day when being single was really awesome
 
Okay.. so it's totes opposite of yesterdays question LOL so here goes..
 
I wouldn't really say that I've ever had a moment or day when being single has been *really* awesome. I'm happy being single, concentrating on putting number 1 first for a change. I think these people who say there, "Young, free and Single" really dreadfully don't want to be and also people who state they're happy being single because they don't need to "report" to anyone on what there plans are.

But if you're in a relationship and you feel you have to report your plans to your partner that feels a bit controlling to me.. doesn't it to you? So without going of topic being single has never been awesome but it's never exactly been really bad either. Yeah it's sucked a few times but if it's what you want then surely everyday is awesome? Right?
 
What about you? When has being single been really awesome for you? OR are you like me and everyday is neither awesome or dreadful?

The Single Woman 30 Day Challenge: Day 2 - When has being single really sucked?

The Single Woman 30 Day Challenge: Day 2 - When has being single really sucked?

It's day 2 of The Single Woman Challenge and today's question is...
 
Describe a moment or a day when being single really sucked.
 
Hmm... day 2 and already am struggling with an answer! I love my own company. I'm always busy or on the move so I don't really get time to sit down and think about being single. I like things being peaceful and quiet. I live with my family so I don't ever get lonely as some might being single.

Although sometimes just sometimes it gets annoying when invited out with a large group and you'll be the only one left not coupled up as everyone else is! That's when it sucks for me because you don't wanna be a gooseberry do ya? (Well I certainly don't)
 
I'm gonna contradict myself here but also at night if you want to talk to someone, or if you want to spend some time with someone new who is not a friend or family member.. but just has those thoughts appear they quickly disappear.
 
What about you? When has being single really sucked for YOU?

The Single Woman 30 Day Challenge: Day 1 - And why are YOU still Single?

The Single Woman 30 Day Challenge: Day 1 - And why are YOU still Single?

It's the first day after Valentines.. not like we singletons could really forget the date is it? For 14 days everywhere we look shop window displays are filled with bright red hearts and *14 February* all thrown across them plus don't forget the big teddy bears holding chocolates, the adverts on the telly for cards, the bouquets of roses all sitting neatly in Tesco waiting for someone to buy them, then there's balloons, bags, rings and to top it all off our facebook newsfeed being chocker block with everyone posting pictures of what their lovelies got them. (Can someone grab me a sick bucket while I puke?)
 
I'm not jealous! I'm really not. I know you're sitting right there reading this now and asking "Are you really sure about that?" well YES I am actually (and no I'm really not demented) I just don't get what all the fuss is about for Valentines day and I also don't get why some people think wee singletons sit and mourn this day because we don't have someone to spend it with or because we don't have a man or woman to buy us stuff.

Well I decided this year I really was happy being single and I didn't need nor want a man to buy me things or spend time with so I treated myself to a few things.. wanna know something? I actually chose to do this! I did get a few invitations to go out but I thought having a relaxing night in sounded more appealing. Read more about my Valentines Day HERE.

There's one person who has shown me it's alright to be single and embracing my singleness and that is The Single Woman herself whose books and daily inspirational quotes I am obsessed with so que my *happy face* when I came across The Single Woman 30 Day challenge while nosying on her site, sure it is from quote a while ago and was never completed but I decided to start it today and continue everyday answering the 30 questions Mandy Hale A.K.A The Single Woman asks... will YOU join me to?

For more information and the full list of questions check out HERE. If you've took part leave a link below to your post I'd love to read it.

Now.. let the challenge begin!




Day: 1
Question: "And why are YOU still single?" 

"Um... well... uh...." *Que awkward smile and quick glance around* while urgently telling my brain to hurry up and think of something... anything that sounds remotely okay but...

When you've been told your not good enough or verbally abused for five years of your life it begins to take it's toll! Days are a struggle to get through and nights are considerably longer. If you think your not good enough yourself why shouldn't you believe others won't think the same thing? How do you know the person who asks this question isn't thinking that?
 
So why am I still single? I'm single because I want to experience what life can offer me now, become the woman I want to be and concentrate on myself for a change!

As The Single Woman says.. I'm single because I WANT TO BE! This is will be my reply now to anyone who asks me why I'm still single.
 
What about you? Why are YOU still single?

 


2014 Bucket List: Item 1 - Write a note and leave it in a library book.

2014 Bucket List: Item 1 - Write a note and leave it in a library book.

Woohoo! I completed one item of my 2014 bucket list and have added £2 to the money box :) When my sister mentioned she was going to the library I knew this was the perfect opportunity to complete one thing and was...

Write a note and leave it in a library book.
I decided to write this inspirational quote from Eleanor Roosevelt because I think it's uplifting.. :) I have it printed out and above my computer on the wall along with other motivational/inspirational quotes.

(I should mention the book is NOT vandalised in anyway! I <3 books so would never do anything to ruin them)


Hmm... I wonder what I'll be able to complete next. :)

My Valentines Day...

My Valentines Day...

Today I saw this tweet on The Single Womans Twitter account..
 
*Today: If you've found love, celebrate it. If you haven't, celebrate YOU! :)*
 
So that's exactly what I done. I celebrated me by blogging, writing, treating myself and eating chocolate! :) I even kissed a frog hoping it will turn into a giant one as you can see below..
 
I've been in love with red roses for as long as I can remember so instead of looking on and seeing women receiving them I had my WTH fleeting thought went out and bought two long stem red roses for myself and want to know something? I will so be purchasing myself flowers in the future because it felt amazing.. aren't they beautiful?
 
 
 
I've always loved roses but thought it odd if I bought them for myself so this year I thought WTH and did just that! :) As you can see I'm deliriously happy with them! :)
 
My mother also treated me to a chocolate eclair...
 
 
And I also kissed a frog.. I hate frogs but Kermits a frog.. so it's a moot point plus this one is chocolate so am hoping instead of a prince he turns into a giant chocolate frog! :D
 
 
Plus I bought this clear nail polish with hearts from Poundland and it's so amazing! (Better than I thought it was going to be) It drys so quick even in top of previous nail polish. See look... (It's not that clear but you can sort of make them out.
 

 
 
 What about you? How did you celebrate Valentines day?
 

Food: Pizza Sodas

Food: Pizza Sodas


Being a vegetarian who doesn't eat vegetarian food can be quite frustrating sometimes when looking for something time consuming to eat. Especially for me as I'm a really fussy eater and have really bad problems with food. Which is why am all excited I can finally cook something tasty and quick which equals super awesome dinner for me. Wanna know what this awesome tasty dish is? Well pizza sodas.. I know come to think of it they are actually quite simple to cook BUT this is coming from someone who melts chocolate forgetting to add water to the saucepan and burns microchips.. (don't ask how... no really don't)

I discovered these in a local shop already made and have been quite addicted to them recently so feel my happiness slip away (or more like bloody dragged away in this weather) when there was none left on Sunday ALTHOUGH my very smart father was quick to point out I could make them *que lots of woohoos* only for him to tell me he was supervising incase I burnt his kitchen.. (from past record I see his point)

While he went out and got all the ingredients I stayed and blasted Avicci and One Direction through his TV... the songs below to be precise...



No sooner was he back and yacking at me to turn the telly down that we were able to begin! *que more woohoos*

This is the process in images... :D


1, Plain Patton's Soda bread (I think this is an Irish thing.. or perhaps that's potato bread)


2, Pizza Topping (This one is so nice)


3, The pizza topping spread on top of the soda.


4, Tesco grated cheese.. (I've tried it with others since and I think generally ya can use any cheese)


5, Cheese sprinkled on top (I had so much fun doing this part.. made me feel all Italino)


6, Left in the grill for 4-6 minutes depending on how you like it... to me it's perfect!


Doesn't it look yummy??


 What do you think? Do you know anything quick and simple I could cook? (I'm a veggie so my choice is limited)

Introduction to A Voluptuous Chatterbox

Introduction to A Voluptuous Chatterbox

Heyo! :) I'm Kerry-Ann, a 20 year old plus-size girl from Northern Ireland. I'm addicted to reading, chocolate, pigs, shopping, crafting and talking. Read more about me HERE.

I've started a personal blog about maybe 30 times? I know what your thinking WTH! I had started *Blog of A Northern Irish Girl* a few years back but try saying that in one breath it was not fun. I had never really known what to blog about on it plus considering the fact it made me feel quite boxed in like all I was was A Northern Irish Girl so I tinkered about with numerous other blog always though importing and exporting all the posts which didn't really make it a *new* blog... not really.

After spending days (and countless days) deciding a name my very kind sister Megan thought of Voluptuous Chatterbox... Apparently saying I'm a chatterbox is a nicer way of saying I ramble.. alot! ;)

The Voluptuous part well.. that's also a nice way she describes my body when am complaining about me humps and bumps or calling myself fat her reply will be "You're NOT fat.. you're just well... voluptuous." She does mean it in a good way.. Right?

It's actually quite a shock to the system that I have a blog name like this and also that I added that wee bit in the previous paragraph. You see about 3-6 months ago I would never have dreamt of saying things like that or even have been considering the posts I'm gonna write on this blog but when the new year came around with new expectations, dreams, hope and belief I had a sudden  fleeting thought of "WTH why not" so this year that's exactly my view on things. For anything am unsure about or anything am scared of you can be that response will be filtering its way through my head. :)

I believe 2014 will be the best year and that's partly due to the bucket list I made where I hope to complete 50 things but it doesn't stop there, for each thing I complete on the bucket list I will save £2. (Here's hoping I reach £100!) there is still 10 more things to add so if anyone has any ideas it'd be so good cause am all out! Read more HERE.

I have many things planned for this blog although I'm going to take it all in my stride and just let it all flow with time. This is all about embracing who I am and learning to be comfortable in my own skin but most importantly not really giving a hoot on what people say or think about me. :)

It will be a place filled with opinions, thoughts, photos, crafting, food, baking and literally me rambling! I also hope to take a few outfit posts in time because I'm getting so into fashion atm although when I say getting into fashion I mean having more of a personal style.

This is the first post on Voluptuous Chatterbox because I will NOT be transferring the original posts from previous blogs I may re publish them in time but for now this is all new. :)
