Why I blog...

I use this blog as a kind of therapy. Sometimes I'm happy and want to share it, sometimes it's just a random thought and sometimes it's to deal with things in my past. After all a burden shared is a burden halved

social media #FTW

Hello world,
I could never understand why someone would want to read someone else's thoughts but it seems that blogging has become a new form of therapy! instead of paying huge amounts of money to a pshycologist to listen to you go on and on about your weird and strange ramblings people actually write them down (which in it self is quite theraputic I'm finding) and surprise surprise other people actually read them and comment!! So being the type of person who hates being left out of anything (mostly just because I'm a curious person by nature) I have decided to try this blogging thing! So since this is my first blog I will keep it simple and to the point, I just wanna say a big thank you to Lizzi Miller for being brave and finally showing the world what a real woman's body looks like! In case you are not sure what I am reffering to check out http://bit.ly12kfjw/
I am so tired of the usual stick thin models who are constantly in your face on the cover of every fashion magazine telling you, you are just never gonna be good enough!! I have come to the realisation that your body shape is not what defines you and is in no way a reflection of the person you are inside. As we age our body changes and the "outer shell" as I like to call it gets older but our inner spirit is still the same. I am discovering new friends every day through social media's like twitter and facebook, and getting to know the inner person first as I feel this is so much more important than the visual of their "outer shell" I am pleasantly surprised everytime I attend a tweet up to find the people I have gotten to "know online" are just as lovely in person too. There is also that feeling like you have known each other for years and there is no need for any awkward ice-breakers. (also I find throwing a little alcohol in the mix does help too.)

So in conclusion!!! more social media and more tweet ups !!!! Bring it on


  1. welcome to the blogosphere, babe. :)
    it's like tweeting, except it's more than 140 characters. ha!

    and yay for pink drinks and cocktail tweetups!


  2. Welcome to yet another online activity that will suck up your time. It is, however, worth it. It *really* is like free therapy! :)

    Must agree with you on the Lizzy Miller thing. Would kill to have a body like her...even without touch ups (only kill, not diet and exercise, you hear?)

  3. Wow, you say it so well - I can only nod! :-)

    I fully agree with your observation about therapy through blogging, and then I also think Lizzi Miller is beautiful! Her confidence is what makes her so, her curves just accentuates her being a woman, and makes her real and very sexy.

    Go on, blog some more! :-)

  4. Have no idea why but I have always assumed you are a blogger so was rather surprised to see that the 2nd insert I am reading is actually your first.
    I love your outlook.
