My hang up has always been my legs, I have quite large thighs from playing badminton and muscular calves for the same reason! Lots of lunges made for powerful legs! I also have quite bad skin on my legs from eczema so I never really like showing them off, but neither do I live in clothes to hide them, leggings are a great way to wear dresses and show the shape of your legs while keeping covered.
The key is finding what you want to show without going too far out of your comfort zone. I also think a large part of body confidence is ignoring what the media and society says about women and their clothe size. I am sick of seeing magazines that say someone is too fat one week and too skinny the next week, I am sick of women who say they love and embrace their curves and then go on a diet to loose a lot of weight. I am not on about people who change for an actual reason, I have taken up hoop dancing for fun and I can loose myself in the flow and music for hours at a time, so any loss of weight is almost the consequence of me having fun, not the aim. I think if you aim is just to be thinner or curvier or whatever it is you want, it is not enough, you need to be happy and healthy and not focus on what is acceptable in terms of weight. I know it is not always easy either but once you accept what you have then happiness soon follows and so does confidence in your body.
Your body is yours to do as you wish so don't take my ramblings as a bad thing, but I wish people would be more happier with how they look, because ultimately it is part of who you are. When you start to accept your body and feel confident, everything seems a lot easier, because you let go of those little niggles in your head that told you, that you didn't look right, or good enough!
Stay happy and positive,
Lots of Love

So I am going to say I will never feel bad for spending all my spare time pretty much doing nothing and relaxing! After a week from hell pretty much I am happy to say I am glad to just sit back and relax and not put all the pressure on myself. Which brings me to my positive thought of the day.
It was the same when I was at university, I knew in my second year I did not want to be there and by my third year I was still there saying things like 'my mom would be so upset and disappointed' or the old 'everyone says what a waste it will be if I don't finish' When in reality the waste was that I spent a year in a place I didn't like to please people I didn't need to please. All I needed to do was make myself happy. I think it is an important life lesson that some people will not learn until they are faced with difficulty but if you can try to put yourself first and do the things that make you happy you should have no regrets in life. And if it something that made you happy or was for the right reasons no one should make you feel bad for doing it.
So stop trying to please other people and look after number one for a change!! And I will be going now to watch some more Pokemon and working my way through all the series of Heroes ready for when it returns next year!
Stay Positive and Happy
Lots of Love

All you need is Flour, Butter, Sugar and whatever you want in your cookie I chose this galaxy chocolate because it had almonds and hazel nuts in it. You could even swap the chocolate for raisins and if like me you use a dairy free butter alternative you would have some dairy free cookies to enjoy!
I used my little Russian Doll measuring cups and did 1 cup of self raising flour 2/3 a cup of sugar 4 Big spoons of butter and about 6 chunks of chocolate broke up into little bits!
I mixed the flour sugar and butter together (I added butter until I had a smooth dough like consistency so use my measurement as a guide) and then I added the chocolate.
Cook in an oven for 15-20 mins on 180degrees. You should be left with soft cookies with a crispy edge. Just the way I like them!
Let of know if you try this recipe!
Lots of Love
