Feeling Overwhelmed

feeling overwhelmed

I’m sure it’s not just me who gets the feeling of being overwhelmed.

Being at an event where there are so many people to talk to and so much to do can be extremely overwhelming. You just don’t know where to look half the time, but there’s always that feeling afterwards that you’ve overcome whatever feelings you have and almost satisfaction that you’ve done it.

On the other hand, there’s the situation of taking on so much and being so busy doing everything you possibly can. That can also be so overwhelming but in a good way. I remember I used to sit around doing practically nothing before blogging and now with organising events too, all my spare time awake goes into that and blogging. That in itself can be completely overwhelming but I love having small side projects that go with blogging.

It opens up a whole number of possibilities and exciting opportunities.

While being and feeling completely overwhelmed is only a small factor, the feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment completely outweighs any negative feelings.

Yesterday I shared a post with you on How I Lost 1 Stone in 1 Month and ran my personal best mile last week, for me this was a completely overwhelming feeling. I’ve lost weight, something I’ve battled with for years, an addiction to food that I simply didn’t know how to deal with and I’m so proud of myself that when I think about it, I cannot believe it and I get so overwhelmed that I could cry. Then I think that I can do this, I can really do this, I can lose weight and be happier and find pretty dresses that I can wear without feeling ridiculously self conscious. Already I’ve bought jeans a size smaller and I have a new favourite outfit, that actually looks good! It’s overwhelming but also an amazing achievement when I thought it was just a downwards spiral, turns out it can go up too!

It actually makes me so excited for the future, I don’t think I could ask for anything more right now!



To start off with, I cannot believe it’s December already. Seriously where has the year even gone? There’s something about December that’s really comforting.
Of course I love Christmas, if you hadn’t guessed already. The decorating, shopping, food and most importantly spending time with family. This year, I have the best advent calendar that I won in khrissieloves giveaway! I’m going to try and paint my nails each day with the new colour I get but there’s no promising anything. Follow me on instagram to keep up with the different colours I get!

I’m also making a lot of my Christmas gifts this year but I won’t be able to share many with you because my amazing family read my blog! All I can say is that I can’t wait to get started over the next few weeks.
What can you expect from me this month? Lots of Christmas themed posts of course! Plus my standard A to Z posts which I’m now over half way through, plus so much more. I would also love to be able to get to do a Christmas giveaway if I get to 115 bloglovin’ followers. Tell all your friends!

I’ve got my work cut out for me but I’ve got a good feeling about December!


It’s almost the end of the year which obviously means Christmas but also the beginning of the New Year.
I do enjoy the build up to Christmas, as the lights get switched on and it gets dark really early. The shop windows are decorated really festive and the light pours out on the street, I love it!
I plan my presents out so well for Christmas, I like to put a lot of thought and love into them. I way prefer buying for other people than myself; I’m super kind like that.
Seeing as it’s coming to the end of the year, I thought that now would be a great time to declutter and get rid of lots of things that I don’t need as by the time it’s December I will be getting into the swing of Christmas and getting ready for the festivities. This also means that when it comes to January I’ll already have a clean slate and I won’t need to start the year by doing that!
This month also brings 6 months of blogging, how crazy is that! But I’m going to do a whole other blog post about that in the middle of the month!
I’ve got so many exciting things to share with you this month!

My New Blog!

I have some good and some bad news. Obviously it will be best to start with the good news. 
Here it is! My brand new blog layout which is better than anything I could have ever imagined, all thanks to Zoe (Sweet Electric –!
It’s way easier to navigate so if you just want to read my recipes it is all under that tab. It means you don’t have to scroll through my entire blog to find the one you want. 
Now for the bad news. As you may or may not have noticed I have stopped posting as often. There’s a lot I have to focus on right now so I have to get my priorities straight. Unfortunately (or luckily?) this means I won’t be posting as often for a couple of weeks. I have so many ideas of things to write about but I want to be able to put a lot of thought and effort into them so thru don’t seem half hearted. 
In the meantime, look around the new blog layout as there are a few extras on here. For my new readers, you probably have a bit of reading to do! 🙂 
And while I actually remember (I keep forgetting something so great), I have a few exciting things coming in the next few weeks! So stay tuned!!
Take care! X
