Is it just me who finds that as soon as summer comes, skincare suddenly rockets to the top of my beauty woes and I start buying all the skincare to try and retain tans and keep my skin looking and feeling soft and hydrated! Here are some of my recent finds so I thought I'd share with you what I thought of them all and first impressions and all that!
I thought I'd create a new segment on my blog, which I used to have on my old blog long before KTMY, called Music Monday (original, I know!) in the hope that it will encourage me to start listening to more new music. Back at school, I was constantly listening to new music and being influenced by my friends but recently I've been in a rut and listening to the same old things! So before I start on my adventure of listening to new music, I thought I'd show you what I'm currently loving listening too!
Blogger events are definitely one of my favourite things about blogging; it's so great to be in a room with lots of like minded bloggers! The most recent event I went to was the Bloggers Ball and I think I've finally got the essentials of what you need when you go to an event because I felt pretty damn sassy and prepared when I got to the event and had all the business cards to hand! So here's what's in my bag for blogger events!
Last week I went to see my surgeon for my one year check up and to make a decision on what I want to do next; j pouch or permanent stoma. I put a lot of thought into what I was going to choose cause, ya know, it's a pretty big deal!
I got to use this meeting to ask questions and boy did I have a lot! Top tip for these kind of things, write down all your questions before you get there then you don't have to worry about what you forgot to ask because I always end up forgetting to ask thinks!
I've decided to make my stoma permanent. I've always been pretty set on making my stoma permanent as I've read a lot different articles on the pouches and they just don't really appeal to me. I'm actually going to do a whole post on why I chose a stoma over a pouch as I know that some people might not understand why I chose to keep my stoma; I know that I had to convince a few people of the choice (though my parents and my surgeon totally agreed with me).
One of the big things that happened in this meeting is I got to (sort of) set a date for my next surgery which is both exciting and terrifying! The plan is for it to be next June (the exact date is yet to be set because the diary isn't open for next year at the moment) once I've finished third year so I have the summer to recover before I go back to uni to do my LPC.
So there's a little update for you all! I'm really please that I've finally got a plan in place and that I'll soon be rid of my mucus fiscula!
As you may have seen, I'm a Ladival Sports Ambassador and I've teamed up with them to offer one of you lucky readers the chance to win one of their summer sports bundles which include some great prizes (I'm very jealous of whoever wins it!)!
