I'm Leaving...

Every now and then I go through the phase of wanting to change blog websites, I was originally with wordpress and wasn't sure what I was doing, saw everyone on blogger so joined the hype, but I was to expand my horizons and I'm hoping wordpress will help me do this and for me to learn along the way...

Follow up on my new blog: www.jesshayesx.wordpress.com

Bye for now, Jess xxx

Things That Make Me Happy

As we've moved very swiftly into the new year, all I can seem to think about is the things which make me happy and this is the year I'm going to surround myself with nothing more than the things that make me happy. 

There's nothing I love more than taking my camera and going off somewhere to explore my surroundings, it brings me peace and allows me to do something which I really enjoy - taking beautiful pictures. I've inserted a few of my fave pictures that I've taken :) 

Spending time with loved ones is vital to me, I'm very family orientated and love to be around those that I care for the most, whether it's a quick visit or spending the day together - I'm hoping to do this a lot more in 2018. 

Treat yo self! This year I do vow to spend a little more time and money on myself, whether it's having my hair done or buying a new outfit. Even just spending some time chilled out with a face mask on, it really does lift my mood and I don't do it nearly as much as I should for my own mental health. 

Some of you may just laugh at this one, but singing! I love to act daft, dance and sing around the flat to my favourite songs and artists - Demi Lovato durrr!  it lifts the spirit and doesn't make you feel like you're quite getting close to your mid-twenties. 

A good hair day, hey why stop there? A good hair day and skin day is something which definitely makes me happy, particularly because it doesn't happen very often, making it even more special when it does happen! 

You know when it gets to that part in the year when you start hearing birds chirping again for the first time since winter - it's such a lovely sound which definitely makes the cold months seem well worth it. 

What makes you the happiest?

Love Jess xx

New Years Resolutions For

So I can’t say I’m usually one for New Years resolutions, heck I don’t think I’ve actually thought about any since I was about 12 lol, but something’s telling me that 2018 is going to be different, bigger, brighter, better.

I have gave these quite a thought and just thought it would be a nice way to begin my 2018, hey I’m not saying I’ll always stick to them but I will try my damn hardest as this will be my year for the taking and these resolutions will help me have the year that I want.

First things first; I’m pretty sure that every man and his dog says this come new year but I do want to eat better, exercise more and generally become more active, I done really well last wear with losing fat and toning up but then I got lazy as me and Joe moved into our own place and well the weight piled on, I want a much healthier lifestyle.

That being said, smoothly bringing me onto the next one, eating healthier and making better food choices, actually eating more fruit and veg and enjoying it not just for the sake of eating it (cause well I just don’t eat veg at the moment)... also just eating less, learning to stop when I’m full and not just filling my belly until it explodes, cause who wants bloating and big bellies, so big they have to unbutton their jeans when eating?

Something I will say that will become my main aim is my confidence within myself, whether it’s my beliefs, opinions, the way I look or how I choose to work and do things. I don’t believe in myself quite as much as I should or as much as I want too, this neeeeeeeds to change!

Being polite is very important in my eyes, and I do use my manners as much as I can, this is something I will obviously continue but along with this I also want to work on dealing with rude people because at the moment I’m just being rude back and that’s not really how I want to deal with challenging behaviour, you know the saying, two wrongs don’t make a right and all that. Along with that I want to feel confident in telling people no with things I don’t agree with or things that I don’t like without feeling intimidated or like my opinion doesn’t matter.

I’m a major stress head, I let things eat me up inside until I’m miserable and don’t want to move, I think some relaxing time and me time is something I need to bring into 2018 to help me feel more myself and at ease.

BE HAPPY!! If all else fails I just hope to be very happy, and live a happy life, stop beating myself up and getting myself down and just live for the moment, take more photos, fill my scrapbook up, love like I’ve never loved before.

That being said, love like I’ve never loved before, it’s time for me and Joe to take time just the two of us, more days out, more moments together, more memories to share.

I hope I haven’t bored you too much with that seems like a never ending list but I just thought if I put all my thoughts down it’s something to look back on and see if I kept to them to make myself happy, organised and a little less stressed.

New year. new chances

I hope you all have a wonderful end of 2017 and start 2018 with a bang

Love always, Jess xxx

Christmas 2017

This is more like a collection of photos from over the christmas period than an actual Christmas post, sorry guys! I just thought what a perfect place for me to put all my photos together - there's not many as I have now realised I didn't save them from snapchat but hey ho!
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and that 2018 if full of happiness and cheer for you all. :)

These photo's have also made me realise how much weight I've put on recently, and have made me very determined to lose it and get back to where I was at the beginning of the year!

A 22nd Birthday in London

So I thought I'd include pictures from my time in London, so have a scroll through, have a nosey, but first things first, MY PINK HAIR!! It's kinda faded now but I loved it!
There are not too many pictures of me because after seeing the pictures of me in Madam Tussaud's with my pal Shrek, it kind of put me on a downer and I didn't want my photo taken, don't get me wrong I'm bloated,  but I didn't realise I had put on that much weight, so now I'm working on that and my health :)

Birthday Vodka and lemonade, yummy, whilst sitting on a river with some chips. Perfect.

I can't thank Joe enough for making my adventure memorable but he knows how grateful I am, especially for the amazing hotel!
