Let’s Talk: Life Updates

Hey you guys! I know, I know, where’ve I been the past few weeks? Well don’t worry i’m gonna update you all on what’s been happening in my life. First I just wanna start by saying i’m not writing this post because I feel obliged to explain my absence from blogging because I do feel like taking breaks when necessary is actually a really healthy thing for your mind, body and creativity, i’m writing this because my blog is a place where I can freely communicate to all you amazing people and myself things that I might be feeling, loving, hating etc and that’s exactly what i’m doing right now.

My Dabble in the Vegan World

Hi everyone, I hope you’re all doing really well! So I thought I would just talk to you guys about my experience with vegan food and the vegan sort of lifestyle … don’t worry i’m not going to start preaching at you, telling you why you should ditch the meat and become vegan because well, I hate those types of people *cough Lucy Watson cough* .

So about two months or so ago Martin (my lovely bf) decided that he wanted to try his hand at becoming a vegan, primarily for the health benefits as we used to eat quite a lot of takeaways and fast food which left us both feeling quite bleghhh a lot of the time. So of course I supported his decision and said that I would eat whatever he eats when we’re together (which is 90% of the time) but when i’m away from him I would continue to eat meat and dairy etc because quite frankly I enjoy eating those things … I guess you can call me a part-time vegan. Martin was 100% fine with this, he wan’t pushy or tried to conform me, besides we’re practically joint at the hip so I’d end up eating what he had anyway most of the time.

Old(ish) Tv Shows I’m Watching And You Should Too

Hey Hey everyone so I thought I would do something a little different for this post and just sit down with you guys and have a lil old chin wag about some of the Tv shows from the past i’ve been loving again. Now when I say ‘shows from the past’ i’m not talking about the ones your Nanna would have watched like Heartbeat … don’t come at me Heartbeat fans, no disrespect.

Nope, the shows I’m watching are a few good ‘uns from a few years ago that have reared their head on our tv screens once again, so let’s get into it.

Friendships And When To Step Back

I think there comes a point in everyones life when you hear that little bell in your head and are hit with that voice that asks you ‘why do you keep trying?’, i’m referring to friendships of course but tbh all types of relationships can be applied to this.

I’ve never been the type of girl who had one specific group of friends that did everything together, i’m more of a friend here and there sort of girl if you know what I mean? I can count on one hand the number of close friends I have and i’m just fine with that, in fact I prefer it.

Things I Wish I Had Done Before 25

If you read my birthday wish-list post then you’ll know that I have just turned the grand old age of 25 … I mean I can’t deal! Just before my birthday I started reflecting on my life so far, you know as you do (I am not dramatic at all am I) and I randomly just began thinking of some of the things I wish I had done before now, I guess you could call them regrets in a way … I can hear you all now, ‘Oh Carolanne you sound so chipper, I can tell I’m in for a great time here’. I’m not trying to sound like a debbie downer but we all have things we wish we had done sooner or just in general, right?

Getting them Gains

I had a realisation about three weeks ago that i’m a quitter, I start and stop things religiously, take blogging for example i’ve taken more breaks from it than I care to admit and it really grinds my gears. Deep down i’d like to think of myself as quite a motivated person however I think I tend to let negativity take over and consume me, so a few weeks ago after much umming and ahhing I joined back up at the gym.
