I haven't felt this productive in such a long time and it feels good. I was stuck in a cycle of wanting to be productive but putting things off as other things got in the way.
When I finished my MA (in December 2013), I intended on starting a blog, writing a novel, getting more poetry and short stories published...just basically writing. Writing until my little heart was content, but I didn't do any of it. Every night I'd go to bed and beat myself up about not picking up a pen. I mean it's not like my life is busy. Living at home was chaotic, my two year old nephew was always around and instead of taking some time for myself to get creative, I'd play with him. I don't regret it at all, my nephew is my tiny bestie but I wish I'd have got my laptop out after he'd gone to sleep and bashed out some words.

The day had finally arrived to meet my wonderful friend, fellow Spoonie and blogger, Tania, from When Tania Talks. Pop on over to her blog and check out her YouTube channel, you won't be disappointed.
We'd been talking about meeting up for a while and it finally happened on Thursday. We decided to go shopping (obviously) in Milton Keynes and I was super excited. Tania and I talk most days and I consider her a really good friend so it was good to actually see her.

Mac Lipstick - Stone and Whirl | £15.50 | Link |
Recently Mac added 12 new lipstick shades to their permanent collection. The colours are all Matte or Retro-Matte finishes and I had to pick up Stone and Whirl. The Whirl lip liner is constantly sold out due to the popularity Kyle Jenner brought to the colour, so when I saw that Mac were releasing it as a lipstick, I knew it had to be mine.

It's hard enough being a 28 year old disabled woman without the insensitive comments of 'able-bodied' people, but factor in the idiots of society and their ludicrous questioning, things can get very awkward, very quickly.
I don't deal well with comments regarding my health. To this day, there are certain people that say extremely negative and hurtful things that really affect me. I wish I was strong enough to let words slide off my back but when it's an attack on something I have absolutely no control over, it really hurts. Being in pain day-in-day-out and told you're not good enough, you're a scrounger or 'putting it on' is worse than the pain itself. It eats away at you and breaks you down even further.

How does it work?
It's simple; you are asked to name 10 books you have read in your life which have stayed with you the most. They can be any genre, any length, any author. They might have stayed with you the most because they were poignant, because they were laugh-out-loud funny, or because they were just beautifully written. It's not that simple for a true book lover.
