It’s the most…. Wonderful time… of the YEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA-R! 🎵


Wheew! 😅 … that was a workout for the ol’ diaphragm & toes, get me?!

(I think I’m drunk on my own saliva #TooMuchInspiration)

Today’s my first day of annual leave and I’m spending it blogging. Good luck to all of you, you’re REALLLLLYY in for it, today! I’d press the red “x” button soon, if I were you. ☺️ Save yourself!!!!!! 🌽💚

So, like, Christmas Jumper Day occurred on the 15th… Didn’t it? The answer is yes, yes it did. I turnt up for the occasion in and around a Christmas jumper – from Debenhams.

Debenhams is a British department store. Then again, it’s probably isn’t even British, ’cause like – sorry to break it to you, but – I ain’t the founder or connoisseur of the whole rigamarole of Debenhams (as a company) thing. All I know is, I go there, buy stuff and leave. That’s a universal, yet also British, thing.

Places you can find a Debenhams = England (definitely), Ireland (probably), Scotland (again, probably) and Whales (probably not). #BobMarleyAndTheWailers HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH! #FreeWillly

(How have I not dyed – my hair – yet????) < one of life’s greatest miseries or mysteries, depends on which way you look a tit.

Back to Christmas jumpers, which I’ve yet to try jumping in… Maybe tomorrow ’cause I heard tomorrow’s a  great day for jumping to stuff – like: CONCLUSIONS! 😇

Hope Bae ain’t married yet because I’ll tell you something for nothing… “WHAT HAVE YOU…” is for THINGS not PEOPLE. Don’t let PEOPLE have Bae, because I might do something like cry myself to sleep and watch Bridget Jones. #WEEPING!

OMG! Bridget Jones makes herself look like a spinster when she gets more action than me. What the fudge? Good luck to her is what I’m saying!

Why do I keep getting side-tracked?! Christmas. Jumpers!

I bought an “All the Jingle Ladies” jumper as reference to that special Baeoncé not yet in my life and it’s definitely the best Christmas jumper I have ever purchased. 👑🎄🎅

This jumper from The Collection sparkles with festive charm. Made from a super-soft knit, this lightweight piece features an ‘All the jingle ladies’ slogan embellished with sequins and bells that chime.

Debenhams have won at the Christmas jumper range competition this year.

Keaton Jones is a kid. He couldn’t help the alleged “racist” family he was born into. Racism is wrong, of course, but it’s not his fault! The internet is now quick to add to it because his mum might or might not have said something racist? Have a heart! In case you’ve forgotten, it’s about Keaton… It was Keaton who went viral for crying for help. Yes, his mum featured in the video, but it’s him that’s suffering. It’s him that we felt compassion and empathy towards.

As someone who has witnessed bullying first hand, I would never wish it on anyone. If the rumours are true, and his mother did say or act in an unforgiving way, I’m sure Keaton himself was/is mortified. I’m sure he knows how it feels to be shunned, treated disrespectfully, name-called etc…

Don’t blame a kid for his parent’s actions. A lot of us are born with family members – distant or immediate – that we clash with or that we don’t believe act in a morally correct way… That does not mean for a second that we, ourselves, are that way inclined. Especially a kid that age… He’s still young. He’s got a lot to learn. We need to strengthen him, build him up and make sure he doesn’t end up doing something tragic like trying to end his life, NOT lambasting him based on assumptions/rumours surrounding his family, who – again – if proven correct, should’ve known better.

Be there for a kid who’s suffering and don’t tear shreds out of them just because their family may or may not have said or done something racist… Until there’s clear evidence that he (Keaton) was racist, I won’t think any less of him.


It’s one of my favourite days of the year, today… Thanksgiving!

To all my American friends, I wish you the bestest of Thanksigivings! I hope you’re full of joy, prosperity, luck, good health, delicious food, and festive cheer (on all days, but today a little more).

It’s easy to get wrapped up in the materialistic of lives, not remembering what days like today are all about…

Today is the day for giving thanks, and just being happy with the priceless things we have … the people we’re accompanied by on this mad journey called ‘life’; along with the underrated blessings, big or small… Being thankful is free. We can all do it. It’s the act of being grateful and understanding that we are blessed beyond measure, every day.

Hold the people in your lives close, be extra nice to them and show them you care, because honestly – life is too short.

The finer things in life are the only things we’re left with, so make sure your finer things are the finest of things.




Santa Claus (in the contract) and Jesus, Mother Mary & Joseph are the best part of Christmas, along with the food, drinks, songs (and second most importantly – giving Thanks, spreading love and festive cheer). Have a great Thanksgiving season, folksies! <3

Hey guys,

I just wanted to come online to share something in a hope that it’ll resonate with at least one of you… A few years ago, I was working for a local newspaper, covering Entertainment news. Now, for those of you who don’t know, I’m a journalist. I majored in journalism and still do it as a freelance now…

Anyway, so I was working there, on an internship, and met a teenager who was on work experience. He was just starting out and was telling me about his passion for journalism – but also how his parents don’t believe it’s the right career for him… They told him he’d be better off being a doctor (as it’s a culture thing).

Now, of course – if he, himself, wants to be a doctor, he should. But, there’s no point him playing out his family’s goals because ultimately, as cruel and harsh as it sounds, it’s his life…

Imagine if this teenager grows up being a doctor just because it’s what his family thought was best for him… Of course, saving lives is a massive thing, and a very commendable thing, but – it’s not really what he wants to be doing.

Yes, our parents and families believe in us and want what’s best for us. I’m sure his family were telling him to be a doctor because it’s a more financially stable job and one with less competitiveness (in terms of work). However, if you’re someone who’s talented, works hard, and puts the effort in, you will succeed regardless.

I told him a piece of advice which might have sounded bad to begin with, but it honestly was meant in good gest… I told him not to live his life for his family, but to live it for himself.

At the end of the day, he’s the only one going to be looking back on his life… When the day of judgement happens, or when we have that flash before our eyes… He’s going to be seeing his family’s goals, and not his own. He’ll be forever wondering what-if. He’ll grow old never knowing where his talent for writing could’ve taken him. His family, unbeknownst to them (how much he wants to be a journalist) I’m sure, would not want that.

Ultimately, our families want us to be happy and successful. They’re realists. They try to keep us grounded. It’s not that they don’t believe in us, it’s just – they want to shield us from disappointment or pain. But, at the same time, they really sometimes don’t understand how much we want something, because the need to protect us blinds them…

I will never forget his reaction to what I told him. He said: “wow! No one has ever said this to me before… I never thought like this. I’m going to talk to them, and try to help them understand.” I didn’t think he’d act on it, if I’m honest… A lot of the time people are too scared to confront people, and aren’t able to speak up for fear they’d be letting them down.

Well, I got an email from him recently. He is studying journalism at University (on his final year) and has got a placement at a newspaper.

This is proof that if you put your mind to something, no matter how huge, your determination and your willingness to achieve it along with your dedication to the craft will no doubt get you there.

If you never take anything from me, that’s fine. Just, live your life for you but respectfully understand that parents are just trying to do their jobs. Luckily, I was blessed with parents who would never force (even though that’s a very strong word) me into anything, I was always taught to go after what I want and that’s the attitude I’ll instil in my young. It’s very important.

Always support someone’s aspirations and help them reach it. Never tell them they can’t, even if you mean well and are just doing it to protect them. At the end of the day, they’ll be paying their own bills one day, and they’d prefer to pay them off with a salary they earned by doing something they love and not one they were persuaded to do.

Never, ever give up. Always have aspirations, always have goals. Go above and beyond. Be proud of all that you’ve achieved, and never stop.
