30 Day Blog Challenge Day 29 | A Confession

So today's post calls for a confession, I think I'm a pretty open person so I don't keep an awful lot to myself, which makes this a tough one. I could 'confess' a few things off the top of my head, but none are interesting enough to write a whole post about, so instead I am going to write a little bit about a few things.

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 28 | Most Embarrassing Moment

I have to admit that what I am going to share with you today isn't going to be the most embarrassing moment of my life, it will be one of them, but the worst is so bad that I really don't want to share it. Surely we all have a few moments in our lives like that?

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 27 | What's In My Closet

You might think I'm a little bit odd for the stuff I keep in my wardrobe (or closet, if you're American), but I didn't want to clear it out just for this post. I think the more of the real me you get to see, the more you'll know the person behind this blog. So, here are some of the things I keep in my wardrobe.

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 26 | My Hidden Talent

As I briefly mentioned at the end of yesterday's post, I have really struggled to come up with something to write for today. I can sing a bit but not enough to call it a talent, I can dance enough to get by at a club but not enough to show off, but there's not much else I can think of. I certainly don't have anything I could take to a talent show like Britain's Got Talent.

My Guest Post at Happy Vegan Vibes


Today I have something a bit different for you. The lovely Tamika of Happy Vegan Vibes has kindly asked me to do an interview for her blog, obviously as a follower, I agreed. The interview is all about my vegan journey, how and why I changed my lifestyle and other little bits.

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 25 | My Biggest Regret

Before I get into this post I need to apologise in advance. This is going to be very short, as the subject brings up some things I don't want to think about. I could very happily skip over today without posting anything, but in order to complete the challenge (and I really want to) I have to post something.

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 24 | What Attracts Me ... In Love

As I mentioned in my 20 Facts About Me post, I have been single for a long time now, so I don't have anyone to base this post on. Instead I will tell you what qualities, both physical and personality, I find most appealing when in a relationship.

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 23 | If I Won the Lottery...

I won't lie, I have thought about this a lot over the years, which seems totally normal, until I tell you that I don't even do the lottery! I still like to think about what I would do with all that money though, so the few things I am going to talk about today are things that I have been wanting to do for a while.

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 22 | My Worst Habits

Habits are something, I think, that everyone has and most people try and break. So finding some to put in a post that I'm not currently trying to get rid of isn't the easiest thing. There would be little point in telling you about something that I used to do, but having said that, I have still found quite a few that I haven't managed to break yet.

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 21 | What Makes Me Sad

I have a feeling that this post is going to turn into another mini rant, so apologies if it does. It's just that when I see or hear some of the things that bother me they really bother me. I've always been very opinionated, something that, thankfully, my parents always encouraged. So, when I see inequity or injustice I feel like I have to do something about it. That brings me to my first point:

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 20 | What Makes Me Happy

A few days ago I spoke about things I like to do to make sure that my mind is as healthy as possible, so in order not to repeat myself I will today talk about additional things that I do when I need to improve my mood.

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 19 | My Favourite Movie

I'm so pleased that I get to talk about one of my biggest loves today; Harry Potter. I know that I'm not in the target audience for films like this, even when they were released I was too old really, but that didn't stop me being obsessed with them, and if anything, that obsession has only grown since then.

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 18 | A Photograph of Myself

When I saw the title of this post, I have to admit, I was a bit nervous. The thought of having my face plastered across the internet makes me nervous, which is why, on Facebook, I only have 1 photo of myself, and only 2 others (that I can think of) online at all. I hate having my photo taken, I never know what face to pull and feel like I look goofy or awkward most of the time. Whilst searching for ideas I came across this photo and knew it was the one I wanted to use.

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 17 | My Favourite Blogs

I have been really looking forward to writing this post! As I've mentioned a few times before, I am a little bit addicted to blogs, so getting to share a few of my favourites with you is great. I could honestly recommend a good 30-40, but I'm sure you'd be bored to tears reading through so many so I've decided I am only going to talk about 5 today. I will do another post in the future on some of the others that I think you might like to check out. So I don't repeat myself, blogs that I have previously mentioned aren't included here.

All Things Lush UK

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 16 | My Thoughts on Education

Let me start this post by saying that I think education in very important, however, the way in which we receive it can often be unhelpful. I strongly believe that all children are different, unless you are identical twins you won't find two alike, yet the education system that we have in place in the UK treats us as if we're carbon copies of each other.

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 15 | Where Will I Be in 5 Years?

I have put off writing this post for as long as I possibly could, hoping that inspiration would hit me and I'd know exactly what to write. Unfortunately that didn't happen, so I am left pondering the question. Do any of us really know where we will be or what we'll be doing in 5 years? If you asked me that question 5 years ago I wouldn't have known that right now I'd be in bed, watching Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (for the millionth time), blogging.

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 14 | 3 Healthy Habits

As I have mentioned before, my health isn't the best. Last year I was in hospital seriously ill, so ever since I have been on a bit of a mission to try and get myself as well as possible. For me, the best thing I can do is look after my mental health. If that is on the right track I can handle physical illness a lot easier, so the 3 things I am going to talk about today are all things that I like to do to make sure my mind is as healthy as possible.

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 13 | What's In My Fridge?

Before I start this post I have to apologise, I don't feel as if my last few posts have been great. I'm not very well at the moment so am finding it a bit of a struggle, I will continue though.

As it's shopping day today, my fridge isn't anywhere near as full as it usually is, in fact the vegetable drawers are looking rather sad. I do have a few things to share with you though. I share my fridge with other people, so not everything you see is mine, but I will only mention the things that are.

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 12 | My Favourite Childhood Book

Having asked around a few of my friends, my favourite childhood book seems to be a bit of a bizarre one, no-one else has even heard of it! There were 3 books that I was debating between for this post; Alice in Wonderland (I was more of a teen than a child when I fell in love with this book), Gulliver's Travels in Lilliput and the one I eventually went with, Nicobobinus.

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 11 | 10 Favourite Foods

Anyone that knows me will tell you that I love my food. I've always been a picky eater, my parents used to hide the foods I should be eating in things I liked so I thought I was getting my own way whilst still eating healthy meals. Over the last 10 years or so though, I have been a lot more adventurous, as long as it's vegan, and it contains nothing I'm allergic to, I'll eat pretty much anything. Thanks to being more open minded, I have found a lot more foods that have made their way onto my favourites list.

What do vegans eat?

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 10 | Best Trip of My Life

I'm going to take a bit of artistic license here. Instead of talking about the best holiday/day trip (which is what I assume is meant by the title), I am going to tell you a rather embarrassing story, one that when I hear the word 'trip' comes to mind. This was certainly the best 'trip' of my life!

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 9 | What's In My Bag?

Although I like watching You Tube videos with the 'what's in my bag' tag, I have never written a post like this myself so please bare with me. I don't know how interesting this is going to be in all honesty, as I don't keep anything super special in my bag and clean it out on a regular basis. So, if you're hoping to see some really juicy stuff, I'm afraid you're out of luck. If you just want to have a bit of a nose though feel free, I'm not going to go through it before writing this up, so what is in there you will see, even if it's used tissues!

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 8 | 5 Current Goals

I have always been a bit of a goal orientated person, I like to plan things out in my head and know exactly what I intend to do, it limits the amount of stress I feel, but to be honest, I have struggled a bit with this post. I have plenty of life goals, but most of them are a bit too personal to be shared on a blog that anyone and their mother can read. So, trying to find 5 that are both current and that I don't mind people reading is making me scratch my head a bit.

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 7 | My 5 Favourite Songs

Choosing just 5 songs has been really difficult, fun to listen to them in order to choose, but difficult. I don't think I'll ever be able to pick just 5 that are my all-time favourites, but these are definitely right up there and have been for a long time.

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 6 | What Am I Afraid Of?

This isn't going to be an easy post to write, mainly because I am so scared of the one thing that even the word makes me shudder, and now I have to type it numerous times. I have a few things that I am afraid of, but a couple that I have serious phobias of.

Clifton Suspension Bridge, not great for height phobias.

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 5 | My Proudest Moment

I'm not 100% sure that my proudest moment should count here, it wasn't myself that I was proud of, but it is by far the most proud I have ever felt in my life so I am going to include it.

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 4 | My Dream Job

When I was a child going into my teenage years I had a very specific job I wanted to do; I wanted to be a bodyguard! How random is that? I honestly have no idea where that idea came from, but I was dead serious about it. I wrote off to a couple of agencies to ask what I needed to study in order to be qualified and made a plan that I intended to stick to. Of course it didn't work out, for many different reasons.

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 1 | My Blog's Name

I have yet to take up a blog challenge, even though last month I thought I would be able to take part in two of them. Unfortunately circumstances wouldn't permit so I'm unable to write the posts I thought I would. For the month of June though I am taking up this challenge, as seen over on blossomed_kissez Instagram account. I will be posing every day throughout the month, or at least that's the plan. The problem is my laptop is dying a very slow death and I don't know how much longer I'll have it, so I will be writing up the ones I can in advance.

Here are the subjects for each day:
