Screw it, final goodbyes

Hey,

So I’ve changed my mind again. What a suprise that is. I know I said I would do three posts these last two months, but honestly, I don’t want too. So here is everything I need to say.

First of, my goals. Completely smashed them! I feel so ill now though but I did it!! I kind of went overboard, stressed myself out, pushed myself too hard and made my head a little crazy to be in, but I’m back on the other side now. Just recovering from an awful chest infection cold type thing.

I created this blog in March 2015, and I can tell you, I have loved every second of it. Through all of my ups and many downs I have shared on here, I have made some incredible life long internet friends. Some, I want to meet in real life and spoil the hell out of them! 

This blog has been my little safe haven. My place where I have been able to grow and never be put down for expressing myself. Each and every one of you mean so much to me in very different ways. Some of you were my very first supporters, some of you are the ones who are bold enough to give me constructive feedback, without wanting to hurt my feelings. Some of you are my little cheerleaders, always pushing me forward, always there to motivate me when I need a kick up the ass and the ones I can cry too if I need too. And all of you, yes all 600+ of you are my family. Without you, this new beginging wouldn’t be possible.

I have had so many amazing opportunities while running this blog, I mean I worked with Clinique for god sake! Never in my life would I have thought that was possible! I have worked with other amazing brands such as propercorn ( who I am still totally obsessed with! Lightly sea salted all the way!!), Toddlebike2 (who have made my cousins playtime so much better!), Malki Dead sea minerals (the one company who has made my skin amazing!) Saint London, (who have georgeous watches ((use my discount code IMAGALAXYGIRLBLOG for 20% off!) And many more. 

I’m not going to lie, writing and uploading everyday, sometimes more than once was a struggle, I did rush some content but others on here are my pride and joy. This blog has over 30k views and that is insane! 

I have literally grown up infront of your eyes, I’ve gone from a shy little girl who was afraid of the world, to a girl who has opened herself up to the galaxy and has finally accepted who she is. (Hence why I have stuck with the galaxygirl name). 

I do love and appreciate every one of you, because lets face it, without you, I would still be that shy girl who is too afraid to stand up for what she believes in. 

This new blog and YouTube is going to the best new journey I can take. I have already had my fair share of cries and tantrams over them both, so you know that they are going to be good. If you want to join the team, be a part of the new journey I am taking, then click here to subscribe to my brand new YouTube channel, here to follow my new blog, here to follow my Twitter (leaving hints every day up until the release date!) and here to check out my Instagram. That’s all the links you need right now. 

Thank you for the best years of my life, thank you for the valuable lessons you have all taught me and thank you for being such amazing, supportive friends. Love to every one of you, I wish you all the luck for the future. Dream big and reach for those stars because you will soon reach them!

Love you all!

November goals

Hello,

How are you? I need to address something before I carry on with my post. A few of you have noticed a name change on my social media. You are very observant. I have created a new blog. Yes, you read that right. It would be amazing if you could all head over and follow me. That new blog will have it’s first ever post on January 1st 2018! Natalie had messaged me some words of widsom and she was right, I shouldn’t delete everything, because I did work my arse off on my content. So, instead of deleting everything, I am keeping this blog. It just wont be used anymore. My new blog is www.lifelikeagalaxygirl.wordpress.com please head over and follow me. Share this on your Twitter and Instagram too! Help me reach at least 200 followers before I begin.

☆☆☆☆

Okay, so now that that is done, I want to share with you my November goals.

  • Go to bed before 3am – I have been going to sleep around 3am and then not waking up till gone 12! That’s really not healthy, so my aim to sleep at a normal time.
  • Wake up before 12pm – Obviously! Hopefully I can get my body into the routine of waking up at 8am. 
  • Lose some weight – I have been doing so well at this, then after my little wobble, I gained 2 pounds. Now, that isn’t much at all, but I need to loose it and some more too.
  • Get a minimum of 200 followers on my new blog – This blog has over 600 followers and every single one of you are amazing! But I know that realistically, not everyone will follow my new blog. But I am hoping that 200 out of 600+ still want to follow my journey.
  • Do more photography – I’m not sure when I neglected it, but I want to go out and get some new shots. I love uploading them to my photography Instagram page.

☆☆☆☆

Well, that is it. Those are my goals! I will update you on these at the end of the month. Again, here is the link to my new blog www.lifelikeagalaxygirl.wordpress.com I hope to see you all over there!

Lots of love and I will see you soon.

A Liebster award

Hey,

How are you? Today I am bringing you the Liebster award. I was nominated by Kelsee from kelseebhankins.com if you haven’t checked out her blog, do so, it’s amazing.

Kelsee has asked some questions for me and her other nominations to answer, so here they are.

1. What did you do on your last vacation?

  • I have never been on vacation so I can’t answer this. Hopefully soon though!

2. What three words describe you best?

  • Sensitive
  • Quiet
  • Determined

3. Besides your phone, what’s one thing you bring with you everywhere you go?

  • A notepad/note book and pen. I find them key essentials.

4. What is a controversial opinion you have?

  • Everyone should be treated the same whether they be, man, woman, gay, bi, straight, trans, whatever. 

5. What is/was your lastest Netflix binge?

  • I’ve recently re-watched Riverdale season 1 over again and the two latest episodes of season 2.

6. What’s the most useful app you have on your phone?

  • Probably my WordPress app, because when I get a creative idea, I like to type a title up for it and save it, so I can go back and create the post.

7. Away from your blog, do you journal? If so, how? If not, why don’t you?

  • I use to, way back when I was going through some things, so I stopped after I felt “better”. I then tried to re-start but it would just cause flashbacks of those bad times. I do want to try and start again though, I will make it a new year resolution.

8. What’s the craziest/most outrageous thing you want to achieve?

  • I honestly have no idea. Obviously as many of you know, I want my blog to turn into my job, so to achieve that, that would be crazy. I don’t really have any crazy goals set in place though.

9. If you could make a holiday, what would it be like? How would people celebrate it?

  • I would call it “We survived day” where we celebrate the fact that we are still here, still going strong and to embrace that together, we are united. To celebrate, it would be like a bank holiday where you get the day off work/school, and for that day, you can go shopping and get 50% of your items for free. That’ll be pretty cool.

10. Time freezes for everyone but you for one day – what do you do?

  • In reality, I would probably just sleep.
  • In a non-reality senario, I would play match maker. I would set people up on dates, I would make others forgive and forget, I would clean up the mess that has been made, to try and make this world a better place. Then I would write a letter to my crush, telling him how I feel and place it in his hands so when he unfreezes it’s the first thing he sees.

○○○○

That guys, is all of Kelsee’s questions. They were great to answer, I loved the fact that they were unique. 

If you guys want to take part then by all means do. 

Rules:

  • Acknowledge the blog who nominated you for this award.
  • Answer 11 questions the blogger gave you.
  • Give random facts about yourself. 
  • Nominate 11 blogs
  • Give 11 questions for them to answer.

My questions

  1. What is the last thing you said to someone?
  2. One of your biggest goals?
  3. What do you regret?
  4. What don’t you regret?
  5. How are you feeling?
  6. What is your biggest fear?
  7. Fresh fries or onion rings?
  8. Where have you been on holiday?
  9. What was your childhood friend called.
  10. Do you believe in ghosts?
  11. What would you possess if you could?

Stay safe, stay happy and live life as an adventure.

These are a few of my favourite things

Hey,

Welcome back to another post. I am bringing you a “here are a few of my favourite things” tag. I was nominated by the gorgeous Sophie. I have linked her post so if you haven’t already seen it, make sure you head over and read it now.

Basically this tag is to share the things you love. Whether that be food, objects, clothing, feelings ect. Yes, it is also to get you to sing the song too. I have been looking forward to this tag, so I am going to jump straight into it.

Candles

Who doesn’t love coming home from a long day at work and chilling with the candles lit. I love getting out of the shower, then walking into my rooms with them burning, that’s what my heaven looks like.

Rain

Yes I am one of those weird ones who sit there and watch it chuck it down. I still play the little rain game my dad taught me as a kid. It sets a real cosy mood.

Writing

There is no way you’ll catch me without my phone or a pen in my hand. I am writing all the time, whether that be a blog post, email, design plans, a story or just my shopping list. All I do is write.

Reading

If I am not writing then I am reading. Could be why my friends call me nerdy. But picture this. It’s raining, the candles are lit and you’re just cuddled up in the chair reading. Can you get any better than that?

Fresh bed sheets

As much as it kills me to put them on, the satisfaction of having fresh, clean, untouched bed sheets. The first night climbing into them is a gateway to heaven. You instantly slip into a cosy sleep. It’s perfect. 

Myself

Can I class myself as one of my favourite things? Is that actually allowed? I don’t have a soild reason behind this one, I’m just my favourite person at the moment, and I count as a thing so?

●●●●
That is all I can think of. My post isn’t as great as Sophie’s so make sure you go and read hers for a quality post. Thank you again Sophie for tagging me to do this. It is an amazing tag.

I’m not going to tag anyone to do this but if you haven’t done this and would like to, go ahead. Tag me so I can read what your favourite things are.

◇◇◇◇

Thank you for reading. I hope you enjoyed my post.

Stay safe, stay happy and live life as an adventure.

Love,

Series: My dream home

Hello,

Welcome back. I am so thrilled to see so many of you loving my double uploads. I am enjoying creating them too. Of course if you think they’re too much or you just think its a bit naff, let me know. 

Today’s post is going to be a little short. This is more of an introduction post. I have decided to come up with a series called “my dream home”. As you can guess it will be about my dream home. Each week, or maybe each month I’m not quite sure yet, I will upload a new post in the series. I will go through my dream house room by room.

In each room I will create a wishlist, describe the colour of it, and just make you feel as though you can see it. 

I’m not sure how long the posts will be or when they will be uploaded. I thought this was a fun way to put my dreams out there, while sharing some pretty cool things. 

If you like the sound of the series, then make sure you follow me and keep up to date on my blog. I will be posting my first one on Friday!

Stay safe, stay happy and live life as an adventure.

Love,
