I'd love you but I need another year alone

4 comments
Yesterday was Valentine's Day, a public holiday that people seem to have a bit of a love-hate relationship with.

Me? I love Valentine's Day! I love all of the cute trinkets, homeware and gifts that come out and have no qualms purchasing too much of it for myself, regardless of whether I do or don't have a boyfriend to share the day with. I actually blogged about why Valentine's doesn't suck for single people last year because I was so sick of seeing all of the single people bitch about the holiday, particularly when you know that most of them would think otherwise if they were in a relationship.

I feel much the same this year, of course. It's my second year of being single on Valentine's Day and I honestly couldn't give less of a fuck because I still love the day, I still love buying cute bits like heart shaped candles for myself and I still had a lovely day. My sister and I swapped gifts for each other, spent the day in London together and then ordered a Domino's in the evening- pretty perfect, right?

The thing is, after the year I had in 2016 in terms of boys, I actually feel like right now, I actually prefer being alone. I spent 2016 not only learning to love myself and who I was but also trying to get involved with other boys and it was just... a disaster. After being treated so poorly in my previous relationship, there's no denying that my standards are pretty high now because I will honestly settle for nothing less than perfection; I want to be treated like the Queen I finally see myself to be. It's taken long enough for me to learn to love myself, for me to recognise what I actually deserve and how I deserve to be treated- I'm not settling for less than the absolute best. Is that really that unreasonable?



So on Valentine's Day, I truly took some time to love myself. To pamper myself. To appreciate myself. Right now, I'm in the mindset that no man is ever going to be able to love me the way I love myself, and I am a firm believer that the relationship you have with yourself is of the utmost importance.

"If other people make you happy, they can also make you unhappy"

We have to stop relying on other people to make us happy, because as Hugh Grant realises in About A Boy, "if other people make you happy, they can also make you unhappy". I'm fed up of searching for happiness in another person- in a man. I'm not going to find it. A man might be able to make me happy, that's true. But if I'm miserable within myself, with who I am and what I'm doing, I'm never going to be truly happy. I'm never going to be able to give 100% to someone else if I can't even give 100% to myself. 





 


I've mentioned it before (countless times, actually) and I'll mention it again; 2016 was the year I learnt to really love myself, more than I ever have before. With the help of my true friends and my family too, I feel like I really blossomed as an individual and grew into the person I now feel I should have been all along. I see now that spending too much time with the wrong person really stunted my growth. 2016 saw me evolving, lead me on a journey of self discovery. Now, I know my worth. I know who I am and what I want. And I'd be lying if I said it wasn't thanks to these boys...

The one who pushed his luck
This guy was the first guy I kissed on my first night out as a single girl. With my beer googles on, he was the hottest guy ever. I don't remember his name or anything about him, and the only reason I even remember him after getting insanely drunk that night is because he continues to stalk me on almost every night out I have. If I see him, he always comes over and tries to kiss me. It got to the point where I actually had to have him removed from a club for harrassing me. Never. Again.

The fuck boy
There was, of course, the fuck boy. He pulled a classic "I'll slide into her DM's" shortly after it became public knowledge that I was single and it wasn't long before his charm wore off and he was turning into a bit of a sleaze. Me being me, I couldn't help but fall for the guy anyway, and he continued to fuck me about on and off for the vast majority of 2016. Sigh.

The stalker
I met a guy on a night out. We had fun together. He then proceeded to stalk me for the next couple of weeks of my life, even dragging another girl with him into my place of work and following me around the shop, whispering and giggling. The message he sent afterwards saying 'you see me today' was the final straw and that boy was ctrl+alt+deleted.

The nice guy
Or so I thought. I was actually having a really nice time getting to know this guy, hanging out and so on. Then I found out how he'd treated his previous girlfriend (horrifically, by the way), about all the girls he was messaging asking for nudes while with me and I realised I didn't actually like him all too much. Next!

The booty call
This guy only ever calls me at 3am, 5am, 2am- when he's drunk- and then gets mad when I don't answer...because...I'm sleeping? Isn't that kind of obvious? One time, I did answer and boy do I wish I hadn't. Guess what he wanted? Sex, at a drug den he was hanging out at. Right there and then I knew I was better than this. #Blocked

The ghost
The final guy of 2016 was the worst. This guy allowed me to open up to him, more so than I had to any previous guys throughout the year, and to actually begin liking him and wanting more from him and then what did he do? Yep, you guessed it; he ghosted. Just like that we went from messaging all day every day to absolute radio silence; he was gone off of the face of the Earth as far as I was concerned. Fab.

"Keep your heels, head and standards high"

Pretty tragic, right? 

I think that I felt like I couldn't be single. After being with someone for almost six years, I didn't want to be alone. I liked being with someone all of the time- or so I thought. As a result, I was dropping my standards and accepting 'okay' instead of  'amazing', all for the sake of not being alone. And really, I've got to thank these boys because they made me change my mind set. Not only that, but they've also helped alter my entire outlook on relationships too. 

It's so easy to sit there and say it's my fault- my fault that guys ghost me or fuck me over or mess me about. It's probably all my flaws, or because I don't look like Kim Kardashian right? 

Wrong. 





There's nothing wrong with me, and the right man will think I'm perfect in every single way, flaws and all, excess weight, bed hair, bad temper and everything else. But, that being said, the fault does lie with me, and the fact that I'm not ready to be in a relationship yet. I need to be alone. 2016 showed me this. Don't get me wrong, if my dream man came around the corner I wouldn't say no- but what I will stop doing now is settling for okay, for average, all for the sake of not being alone. The thing is, I'm not even alone! On Valentine's Day I had two of my guy mates (who aren't in the 'friend zone' for anyone who might be about to suggest that!) send me cute Valentine's messages, and my best friend Alex did too. I had lovely gifts from my sister. Every other day of the year I'm showered with nothing but love and praise from my other friends too, not to mention the rest of my family. Being without a man does not mean that I am alone. 

"I'd love you but I need another year alone"

Catfish and the Bottlemen said it best in '7' when they sang "I'd love you but I need another year alone". Because I think that I do. I'm still working on myself, for myself, and until I'm truly happy within myself I can't allow myself to turn to someone else for happiness. I'm a work in progress, and who knows how long that will be the case for? Not me!

And anyway as the cliche goes, I am a strong, independant woman who don't need no man! 



I'm not saying other people can't make you happy; they definitely can! My friends and family make me happy all of the time! But that happiness can be temporary; you need to try and find happiness within. 

I hope you all had a fabulous Valentine's Day, single or not, but never forget that the most important relationship you'll ever have is the one with yourself. Work on it every day, learn to love yourself as much as you can and you'll feel so much happier, I promise. 

Love from,

JUICY FUEL COLA Review *

1 comment
I spent the whole of 2016 trying to lose weight, become healthier and fitter, and this is a journey that has continued into 2017 with me- and, I'm happy to report, is going pretty well too! I've written before how I don't struggle to adjust my eating habits, but do struggle with exercise. Thankfully, I've taken up Zumba now and it seems to be working wonders.

In my transformation post the other day, I shared how I struggled to curb my addiction to fizzy drinks- specifically, Coca Cola. I love the stuff and used to go through countless 2 litre bottles a week- which now seems repulsive to me because I can't even bear to think about how much sugar I was pouring into my body! I haven't cut Coke out of my diet completely but I have reduced my intake of it quite drastically, which is sad but it had to be done for my own health.

So, you can only imagine how happy I was when The Juice Shed Company got in touch with me about their Juicy Fuel Cola- a healthy alternative to Coca Cola that also happened to be one of your five a day! (I know, I couldn't believe it either...). The drink is labelled as a "Cola Fruit Juice Drink" and contains literally nothing bad- no preservatives, no added sugar or sweeteners and no e-numbers either. It's a totally healthy version of Coke! Obviously, I was a little dubious that anything could replace my beloved Coca Cola and still taste good, so I accepted The Juice Shed's offer of a product review.

They very generously sent me six cans of Juicy Fuel Cola- three cans of plain cola and three cans of cherry flavoured cola, complete with a funky flyer or two that perfectly matched the brands image and lighthearted personality.




I cracked open a can immediately, desperate to try these healthy, fruit based Coke alternatives and I hoped and prayed that I wouldn't be disappointed.

The verdict?

I wasn't!

Okay, I was by the cherry one, but I don't like ordinary cherry coke anyway, so that I could have guessed. I'm more than impressed with the ordinary cola though! While you can taste a slight difference between the Juicy Fuel Cola and ordinary Coke, and it's slightly less fizzy, it tastes virtually the same. If someone told me I could never drink Coke ever again, I'd be more than happy to settle with Juicy Fuel Cola instead.

I still couldn't believe that these fizzy drinks were healthy and one of your five a day, but on closer inspection of the can, I could see that it was all true.



I was thrilled! I could allow myself to enjoy a fizzy drink without having to worry about how bad it was for my insides! And could count it as one of my five a day, meaning I could eat one less fruit or vegetable, which for me is a very good thing!

I was more than impressed, and not just by the generosit of the company and the taste of the drink- I loved the design of the can too! Long and thin as opposed to short and stout like a Coca Cola can, the original Juicy Fuel Cola can is matte and smooth to touch, while the cherry flavoured drink is shiny. Both are very tactile and both have aesthetically pleasing fonts/passages of text on them, similar in style to the branding of Innocent Smoothies!




I would definitely recommend these drinks to anyone (not the cherry unless you actually like cherry coke because otherwise g r o s s) because honestly, what's not to like? They're basically the same as coke but healthy and one of your five a day (I still can't get over this!).

If you want to find out more about The Juice Shed or Juicy Fuel Cola, feel free to give the guys a visit on Twitter at @ JuiceShedCo or visit their website, www.thejuiceshedcompany.com

I for one, can not wait to get me some more!

January Reflections!

Leave a Comment
I had an unexpected evening free today and I also realised that it's the final day of January- the first month of 2017 is over already! How mad is that?! Anyway, I thought I'd like to do a reflections post on how my month has been so far, and I think this is something I'd like to try and do at the end of every month. It will be nice to look back on at the end of the year, don't you think?

Looking back on it, January was actually a pretty great month for me! I've actually done so much and achieved so much (some of these I still can't talk about eeeek).

First of all is my weight loss achievement. I think I am the slimmest, fittest and healthiest I have been since I was 14 which is really saying something and I'm really, really happy about that! I have been eating really well and I started Zumba which is so much fun. I also moved house, and it's quite a bit further away from my place of work which means I'm managing to get in a lot of extra steps a day which is fab too! Roll on having my dream bod (finally!).



So that leads me to the next point- I moved house! I finally have my own room which is great, the whole house is incredibly nice and in a lovely area too, so I'm very happy about that!

I started working with one of my favourite brands in the whole world, Elegant Touch! They now send me packages filled with nails/nail accessories on the regular and I actually have enough fake nails to keep me going until about May now! This is a huge achievement for me and I am honestly over the moon to be working with them! (Posting all my fancy nails on Insta has really paid off!)



And speaking of Insta, I've upped my Insta game massively! I now have over 1,700 followers and I started the year at 1,600 ish so I feel that I've really improved on my engagement. I also joined a comment pod group, started using hashtags and am paying more attention to the quality of the images I upload, as well as asking questions in the captions as a form of microblogging to try and get followers to engage with me. So far, it seems to be working, so I'm pleased!


My mum purchased us tickets to see Loyle Carner, a new favourite artist of ours, as well as to see Maximo Park (I am paying her for them I just haven't done so yet...) which means I have a couple more gigs to look forward to this year, yay! 

I've been out almost every single Friday and Saturday of the month which has rinsed my account but given me some incredible (and hilarious) memories!



I've made some serious moves with Love from... and can promise you that the next issue is amazing! It's the GIRL POWER issue and is jam packed to the brim with so many fab features and interviews! I can't even tell you who has been included but I could just SCREAM. I can't wait until you all find out. 

I passed my next journalism assignment and am well on my way to becoming an officially qualified Magazine Journalist; this is a qualification I can't wait to have under my belt!

I also had a lovely games night that went on until 5am with the gang, where we swapped Christmas gifts, as well as my belated 21st gifts and I was truly overwhelmed because I was spoilt rotten with such thoughtful gifts. It was so nice to be reunited with them all for the first time since my birthday party in November too!



Finally, I did a lot of adulting this month! I went to the doctors to sort out my eczema and picked up and paid for my first medical prescription without my mum (lol). I booked my extremely overdue opticians appointment, went to it, picked out and purchased new glasses for myself without any adult help whatsoever (which was actually very scary as I have no idea if the glasses suit me and I overspent massively without an adult to control me and my money hahaha) and I also paid my first ever tax payment for being self employed. Because yes, to all the haters, my blog/magazine/writing is a real job that I make real money from. 

So yes, January has been a very good month for me, and I've been so busy it's no wonder that it's flown by! I've got three gigs next month including Drake, my magazines are being sent off to print and I'm excited to see how much further I get with my weight loss! How has your year started out? What plans have you got for next month? Share your highlight of the month with me in the comments below! 

Love from,

Slow and steady wins the race

Leave a Comment
We all know the story of the hare and the tortoise like the back of our hands, right? The annoying fable that taught us all as children that "slow and steady wins the race". Adult life has taught me that this is in fact true.

A similar quote that I love is "A little progress each day adds up". Because it's true. Life so far has taught me that rather than rushing right into things, expecting brilliant results straight away, it is better to work hard on something for a long period of time to obtain even better results. Baby steps really do add up to something greater in the long run, and this was proven to me with my school work and exams, in running my business, and now in my weight loss too.

Although I'd like for there to be, I don't think there ever will be a time where I'm not in some kind of infuriating conflict about my body and how I look. I love myself, but at the same time I want to alter so many things. How is that even possible? It's such a massive contradiction and it winds me up so much. It also makes me feel like a huge hypocrite when I sit and preach about self love yet want to change so many things about myself. All too often I have to remind myself that the reason I want to change myself is because the 'ideal' body is pushed onto me- and everyone else- by the media all too often, and on a good day, it works; I embrace my curves, I appreciate my clear skin, my curly blonde hair, my blue-grey eyes. I see the likes rolling in on my Instagram selfies and I feel pretty damn fabulous.

On a bad day, it makes me feel worse. My social media feeds are flooded with the likes of Khloe Kardashian, Sarah Ashcroft and Tammy Hembrow and I can't help but suck my podgy belly in, wish my thighs were toned and tanned, that my bum was a little peachier- even if I know photoshop/surgery has played a role in so many of these 'perfect' celebrities' appearances. But hey, it happens right? All a part of living in the 21st century, woohoo.

My weight is obviously the main problem I have with myself, and any long term readers of my blog will know that. I harp on about it all of the time- because it bugs me nearly all of the time! I have crash dieted alot; I've tried diet pills, I've tried shakes, I've tried not eating at all, I've tried running, I've tried walking 10,000 steps a day, every single day, I've reduced portion sizes, cut out this food group or that food group. Nothing has ever helped me or worked.

At the start of 2016, I went through a break up. Initially, I lost a lot of weight through lack of appetite, but within a few months I was noticing a physical change in my body, as well as a change in my eating habits. Everyone knows that people get comfortable in relationships; you eat out more, order more take aways, and sometimes you get a little lax with your appearance because you know you're already with someone who loves you as you are. This definitely happened to me- towards the end of my relationship, me and my partner were having at least one Domino's take away a week, going through one of those giant blocks of cheese from Costco a week, countless bottles of fizzy drinks, packets of sweets, galaxy share bars and share bags of crisps with dips. I started that relationship as a size 6/8 and I left it a size 12/14- the biggest I have ever been, the heaviest I have ever been (one thing I won't share ever is my weight!) and the most unhappy I've ever been with my physical appearance. It was a real low point for me, and I genuinely felt like I had hit rock bottom.

So throughout 2016, it's safe to say my eating habits changed, as well as my attitude towards food and, ultimately, myself. I rarely get take aways now, usually only when having a games night with BJ, Alec and Ricarda. I only have fizzy drinks when I have dinner with my dad, twice a week, as opposed to having them every day. I rarely eat chocolate as I can't actually stomach it anymore; I much prefer sweets, and even then I don't have those much either. I still love crisps and dip but even that has been cut right back, and I usually have baked thins and low fat cream cheese as a healthier alternative!

I also tried being vegan for a short period of time, which helped me to adjust some of my eating habits, and while it didn't last, I really want to try being vegetarian this year before transitioning to a completely vegan diet next year. In addition to this, I started to buy my own healthy snacks and ingredients for lunch time wraps. I shared my weight loss/self love journey very openly on social media as a form of motivation for myself (I didn't want to fail in front of so many followers!) and I began to drink a lot more water. Now, as we enter 2017, I have even taken up Zumba!

To me, it doesn't sound like a lot to have done in the space of a year. When I write it, it doesn't look a lot either. And I didn't really feel it was a lot, until I came across a photo of myself the other day that shocked me.

The photo is from a night out where, at the time, I had felt I looked good. I had been out with Bobbie, who also told me how great I looked. We took a lot of photo's together, I loved my outfit and my make up and had a good night.

However, when I look back now, I'm not happy with what I see. And when I compare it to a selfie of me from last week, I can't believe the difference.

Are you ready? (I definitely wasn't!)

Left: April 2016. Right: January 2017


I cannot believe the change in myself. I honestly hadn't noticed it happening to me- I know I've tweeted here and there about losing a couple of inches whenever it happens, but whenever I look in the mirror, to me I always look the same. I guess it's because I see myself in the mirror all of the time, every day, it's harder to notice a physical change. 

I also bought some new work uniform on Friday and discovered I have gone down a size, to a size 10- at least, in Topshop anyway- we all know how unreliable clothes sizing can be!

It's safe to say that I'm honestly so happy that there's been a far bigger physical change to myself than I had noticed. Finally, I'm starting to look in the mirror and like what I see all of the time, not just some of the time. My body looks how I want it to look- not how anyone else wants it to look- and that makes me happy. I feel more confident in myself, I feel healthier within myself, and now I feel happier too. I eat better than ever before, I drink more water, I exercise more than ever before; all of these are positive adjustments, and they're not just beneficial for weight loss either. They're making me fitter and healthier as a person, my skin is clearer, I feel better within myself, more positive and happy. That's what counts, right?

At the end of the day, being healthy and being happy is what matters. It doesn't matter how big or how small you are, how short or how tall you are, whether you eat pizza every day or prefer to have a Instagram worthy avocado based meal, its how you feel about yourself that truly matters. A lot of people have said to me I've always looked great, or that they think I've always had a good figure, and I accept that as a compliment, it's nice to hear, and maybe to them it's the truth. But I've not always been happy with myself. I haven't always thought I looked great. I haven't always looked in the mirror and like what I was looking back at me. Now, I finally do. 

Slow and steady really does win the race. Small, healthy lifestyle changes have all amounted to one huge, physical change for me, and I could not be happier.

Zumba baby!

4 comments
As always, my first New Year's Resolution for 2017 was to lose weight/get fit. I always find it quite hard to talk about my personal relationship with my body and weight because I'm such a strong advocate of body positivity and I feel that by talking about dieting I'm going against everything I believe in. I think everyone should embrace the body they're in, as long as they're happy and healthy. Whilst I am definitely a lot happier and healthier than I used to be, I'm still not fully happy and healthy, and that's why I'm trying to lose weight. However, it's not just about the weight for me; I want to get fitter too! Just because it would be nice to walk up the stairs without getting out of breath, you know?

Anyway.

Whenever I lose weight, I change my eating habits accordingly and eat a lot more 'good' food and a lot less 'bad' food (although I do still indulge in treats like pizza and crisps every now and again!) but the one thing I don't do is exercise. It's not because I don't want to, it's because I can't. I physically can't do exercise if I don't enjoy it, and I have never found an exercise I love (aside from Judo which I gave up a long, long time ago!). I have tried running, swimming, different work out DVD's- nothing works for me! And when I force myself to do exercise that I'm not enjoying, I'm not motivated and I gradually stop doing it and then the weight loss comes to a halt and then I get in a slump and get stuck in this horrible cycle.

So, when my best pal Abby suggested I join her at a Zumba class she just started, I jumped at the chance to go. I had heard nothing but good things about Zumba before and so I was willing to give it a go. I had never done any kind of group exercise class before because I've never really been confident enough to go to one, but I knew that being with my best friend would make the whole experience better!

The first session was free, the hall it was held in is just five minutes from my house and it wasn't too busy- there were about 25 people, all women and all so diverse. There were big women, small women, curvy women, tall women, small women, young women, old women, Asian women, black women, white women, Chinese women, Indian women... so many different kinds of women! Some of them were clearly regulars and had the moves to every single routine memorised, others were beginners. It was evident that everyone was there for a different reason; some for fun, some for fitness. I just loved it.

Post Zumba selfies!


The vibe of the workout was just nothing but fun and I absolutely loved it! There was no judgement, no competition, no uncomfortableness. I felt relaxed, me and Abby had a giggle and it was a proper workout that left me tired out yet energized and full of endorphins afterwards. I felt healthy, I was in a good mood- it was a feeling I'd never experienced after exercising before and I literally felt euphoric that finally I had found a workout that was right for me!

The classes are handy because they're pay as you go, Abby does them and there's three a week so I know I'm definitely going to be doing at least one a week- I'd like to do two though! I'm going to try and get to a 9am class on Sunday which anyone who knows me well will be stunned about... On top of this I'm still going to be trying to do my 10,000 steps a day and I'm going to be drinking a lot more water too. So far I've accomplished this every day this week which is amazing!

And more post Zumba selfies!

New year, new me, right?

I'm so happy Abby encouraged me to try Zumba and I really hope this is a positive step forward in my journey to becoming fitter, happier and healthier!

WHAT I GOT FOR CHRISTMAS/MY 21ST

Leave a Comment
Hey guys, long time no speak! I can't believe it's been over two weeks since I wrote a blog post and whilst it has felt strange not posting every single day, I can tell you I have not missed it. It's not because I don't love blogging, because I do, but I think I just really needed- and deserved!- the break!

Now I'm back and am really excited for some of the content I have planned for 2017! Admittedly, today's post is a bit of a basic one, filled with a lot more photo's and a lot less writing, but I promise I do have some really good posts planned out! Today I just wanted to share with you the gifts my lil' gang (BJ, Alec and Carda) got me for Christmas and for my 21st birthday! Now, yes, my 21st birthday was over 2 months ago but I didn't get to see BJ and Carda until the 8th January to open their gifts for me- and there was 21 of them! The pair of them (aka, Carda) had been collecting gifts for pretty much the entire year leading up to my birthday and I was utterly overwhelmed with how thoughtful and lovely all my gifts were. They all have a back story, as do all my Christmas gifts from them and from Alec, so I wanted to share them on the blog with you guys!


21st Birthday gifts from BJ and Carda


They know how much I loved my Kylie Lip Kits, so this gorgeous, nude, liquid lip set was ideal for me! 



Ever the nail fanatic, I absolutely adored getting this vanity case full of nail-related goodies! Particularly the JLS nail transfers...
How cute is this little stationery set for me?


These pink high heels threw me off at first, I thought they looked a bit weird in shape...it turns out that they're speakers! SO me, and so good too!





I love unicorns. Simple as that.


I've cut off so many people in 2016 and I want to get fit, this pink punching bag with the option to put  photo of someones face in is perfect for me right? 


How cute is this though? 


Pink, alcohol...yep, this is fab.




How sweet is this organisational memo board Carda made for me? I thought this was the cutest thing ever!


Best friends forever x


I love Gossip Girl, you'll all know me and the gang have regular game nights, so this is the perfect gift!




These saucy post it's are right up my street! 





This gorgeous Alice in Wonderland book is definitely one of my favourite gifts!




Christmas gifts from BJ, Carda and Alec!





How sweet is this gift? BJ knows I love having my hard boiled eggs for lunch so bought me these egg moulds! 




Ricarda called this a 'glitter box', everything in it was all sparkly!!



A "house warming" gift from Alec for my new home!


So as you can see, I was incredibly spoiled by my wonderful best friends and I was totally overwhelmed by how much love and thought had gone into each of my gifts. I love my friends so much and I am so grateful for all of these lovely presents!

Did you get- or even give- an incredibly thoughtful gift for Christmas? Let me know what it was in the comments below! 

Love from,
Florence Grace
