This weeks word is -  Different.
Being different isn't a bad thing. It means you're you. You're unique, original and feel comfortable enough in yourself to not need to hide behind a trend, stereotype or flock of sheep.

Question of the week.
If you could only keep five possessions, what would they be? 
My external hard drive, Simba soft toy (that you'll see in my Disney show and tell video on Tuesday :P), memory box, scrapbooks, Disneyland engraved Mickey necklace (also in said video ;P).

  3. Sounds as though you've had a good week! The weather being good this week really has made a difference hasn't it? I'm jealous that you're going to the Harry Potter tour, I really want to go - trying to persuade the other half for my upcoming birthday but I'm not sure he's taking the hint!

  4. Yay Harry Potter!!!! Gonna read a bunch of these links now :)

    Watched your skin story video, for a while now I've been thinking I might have dermatillomania, but I haven't had it diagnosed by a Dr. I've just always clammed up at appts and not mentioned it. My family say the exact same to me "stop picking blah blah blah" and I CAN'T. It is worse when I'm stressed or anxious, it gets to an obsessive point where I feel like I'm in a trance and next thing I know there's blood all under my nails and over my fingers and my face hurts :( right now I have a bunch of scabs on my face, it was even worse during the week :( xxx

    1. Yay!! haha I hope you enjoy them :)

      Thanks so much Amber. I actually wasn't diagnosed by a doctor either (I hate going and only ever go if I think I'm dying) but this video was what I based my self diagnosis from >> https://youtu.be/kB3l1ASd1XU I hope it's of help to you.
      I've never really thought about when mine is worse 'cause I don't usually realize I'm doing it, unless I'm sat in front of the mirror purposely doing it.
      I don't mean this to sound bad but thank you for admitting that. I know it's not nice but it's great to have someone who can relate to it all. <3

  6. What a lovely video of your boy Baker on his day out.
    And I think it's so amazing that you opened up about your skin struggles!! I had really bad skin until I hit my 30s, my acne didn't clear up until then. It got replaced with crow's feet, but I'll take it haha!

    1. Thank you so much Miriam!
      Oh no, don't tell me that :P haha Nah I'm pretty used to the fact that I'll probably not get any better but at least it isn't just me!

  7. Aha! this soup photo! Clearly I am behind on blog reading! I rarely read blogs on the weekend, so I miss everything.

    I'm really enjoying your videos, I have yet to watch the newest one, maybe this afternoon, I will have a sneaky watch at work :) Go you for putting the video up about the dermatillomania (that's probably spelt wrong), I hope it has helped you and I think it will also help others too. Trust me, you are a wonderful person inside and out, there's no doubting that.

    1. I hadn't actually put it up anywhere except Facebook when we spoke about it so I don't blame you for not seeing it haha.

      Thank you!! Ahaha, the spelling of it bugs me SO much - I never get it right. I literally have to copy and paste it any time I wanna say it :P
      That means a heck of a lot Kerri, especially coming from you.

  10. Great videos my lovely. Baker is so smiley at the garden centre!

    Only 5 possessions to keep is difficult, we all have far too much stuff! Photo albums; Box of snail mail; Silver Labrador pendant sent to me by a friend in Canada; Mona Lisa mosaic made from 500 Stella photos; Antique teapot from my Great Aunt.

    I hope I never have to choose for real though! xox
