31 day blog challenge, me, my life, thoughts, ideas

Something I thought about doing once, but I never did.

Day 12 of the 31 day blog challenge.

This is quite a broad topic isn’t it? My mind is like a little ping pong ball at the best of times going from idea to idea so I have hundreds of thoughts about doing stuff and then get waylaid and never do them! I’m going to relate this back to the original topic of this whole blog, dating and go with speed dating. I considered doing it a few times but never went through with it. The main reasons being that I would have had to do it drunk and drunk Tanya is not the one, I’m also not sure I come across well within the first five minutes of meeting. I’m definitely more of a grower than a shower. Live Tinder definitely wouldn’t be for me!

I also had more than one thought about getting a tattoo sleeve…thank fuck that ping ponged out of my head eh?

Day 11 of the 31 day blog challenge.

I did this post during my blog challenge last year and I think I said most of it would go on shoes and handbags…yep, nothing much as changed in a year as that would definitely still be the case.

Seeing as I have a beloved now, I would quit my job and he would take a sabbatical (as he has a proper job!) and I would like to travel the world with him. I would also like to buy our dream house (with beams!) and constantly have sex on our stacks of money!

Obviously I’d be generous with my friends and family with the pennies left over from buying all the shoes.

I’d make such a good millionaire!

31 day blog challenge, tattoos, art, me, my life

Piercings and tattoos.

Day 9 of the 31 day blog challenge.

****PLOT SPOILER**** pictures will NOT be included to avoid embarrassment….mostly mine!

Let’s start with the boring one, I have my ears pierced but I never wear earrings. Not really sure why. I see pretty ones that I like but never wear them. I’m not a massive jewellery person.

So tattoos….erm….I have 5. Let’s start with the generic star design on my wrist, got it when I was 18. My sister has a matching one. I designed it but let’s be honest it’s a basic bitch tattoo! I then have a little butterfly (ffs next I will be saying I have a dolphin!) that I also designed with different colour wings. Under this I have the initials YJAPOM, that is a tattoo with my friend Benjamin. It’s a MJ tattoo and taken from the Song ‘you’re just another part of me’ we used to be best friends and super fans. The next is my biggest regret, a cupcake on my collarbone. It’s a long long story why it’s a cupcake which I won’t go into but my sister and our friend at the time drove past a tattoo studio and impulsively had them done there and then. Awkward thing is I will never talk to the third person ever again that has a matching one on her body.

My last one is the only one I don’t regret and it’s the word ‘dude’ on my foot. My best friend has ‘sweet’ and if you get that reference you’re either incredibly cool or old. We’ve been friends for 20+ years now and it was our favourite movie growing up so it was the only choice to get tattooed.

If I’m honest (other than dude) I regret all of my tattoos especially the friendship ones. Tattoos are for life and out last friendships and phases you go through and you’re just left with constant reminders. Luckily I was never that silly to get a partners name on me. Kiss of death, that one!

Day 8 of the 31 day blog challenge.

I think I’m going to go quite deep with this post and show you a picture of me from this time last year and talk about where I was at. I don’t smile in pictures due to my hamster cheeks but quite frankly I was miserable! Last year started off with a hideous sexual experience and that shaped my entire year. I was really down and my anxiety was high. I was constantly swiping on those apps trying to find someone/ anyone to block out what had happened and this lead to me making some really bad decisions. Mentally it was tough and physically it was draining.

At the end of the year it all changed for me and I finally fell in love and I’m happy. I realised that even though what happened to me last year was the worst and all those things I did to forget it has lead me to The Scientist and being in the most happy and positive relationship of my life. Shit can turn around and I’m so excited for this year!

10 favourite foods.

Day 7 of the 31 day blog challenge.

I did this entry last year and I’m pretty sure my tastes haven’t changed that much so here’s a quick run down…

  1. Gherkins/Pickles
  2. Avocados
  3. Sausages
  4. The hot dogs from 5 guys
  5. Cheese
  6. Anything with whipped cream
  7. Peanut butter
  8. Lindt chocolate
  9. Bacon
  10. Ooh number 10 is different this year as it’s going to be anything that The Scientist makes me! He cooks for me every time we see each other and everything he makes is delicious! I think it’s so good because it’s all made with love.
31 day blog challenge, personality traits, me, my life.

3 personality traits that I’m proud of.

Day 6 of the 31 day blog challenge.

Just putting it out there I don’t want anyone to think I’m being cocky or blowing smoke up my own ass (now there’s a trick!) writing these.

1. I’m loyal AF. I’m always there for my friends and family (and my beloved!) and would do anything for them.

2. I’m funny….or at least I think I am! Some people might disagree.

3. I’m honest. Honest with my feelings and honest to your face. I think you can tell that through reading any of these blog posts. Even when it hasn’t been nice I’ve never glossed over it, just given my straight up honest account of things.

Tune in tomorrow for something a bit less deep…..my top 10 favourite foods!
