Why I’m Excited For The Olympics This Year.

I was discussing last week how I’m looking forward to the Olympics in Tokyo this year.

With the Olympics postponed for a year, I feel like it’s now a time for events and sport.

The Olympics brings me a sense of coming together. You can feel the many emotions during the events, excitement, nervousness, and most of all, joy. Anyone can get involved and show their support.

You can genuinely see the pride for all the countries.
Whatever happens, all athletes should be proud of their achievements. This year must have been one of the most challenging years to train.

Let’s enjoy it!
Thank you for reading.

Two years today our journey began.

Hi readers,

So I thought I would do a celebratory blog post. As two years ago Ben and I began our relationship.

There have been many obstacles along the way, such as distance and a pandemic. However, I think it has made us stronger in the long run.

It’s funny how much we have both changed during these two years. I believe as we have grown as people our relationship has to.

Thank you for always pushing me to be my best!

Thank you for reading.

Take care Lauren x

How positive comments make an impact.

Hi readers,

So I have been reflecting on my “thank you readers” post. Mainly the feelings I had whilst receiving positive comments from other bloggers.

It honestly made me feel so good. Getting congratulations from people I had never met. That people had taken their time when they didn’t need to.

It has taught me a life lesson. Words are so important. One nice comment could make a massive impact on someone’s life.

From now on, I’m going to try to make an effort to give a positive comment. As now I’ve realised even more the impact it has.

Thank you for reading.

Take care Lauren x

Ten Things You Probably Don’t Know About Me.

Hi readers,

Since I have never done things you probably don’t know about me post, I thought it would be fun, so here goes.

  1. I’ve always lived in the same house- In a place called Kent in the UK.
  2. I’m a little short- Being 5’1 I’m not always the tallest person in the room.
  3. It took me five attempts to pass my driving test- My nerves always let me down. Funny enough I passed during the lockdown.
  4. My first job was as a lifeguard- I was seventeen at it was at the local leisure centre.
  5. I’m an only child- People are surprised to hear I’m an only child.
  6. My favourite animal is a dog- Always has been since I was a little girl.
  7. I’m afraid of birds- It’s pretty random, but it’s a genuine fear.
  8. Pokémon Go is my guilty pleasure- I started it during lockdown boredom and now I’m pretty hooked.
  9. My favourite subject at school was Drama- I would’ve done this subject all day at school if I could’ve.
  10. I’m a bit of an adrenaline junkie- I love roller coasters and theme parks. I’ve been on Over the Edge in Amsterdam. the highest swing in Europe.

Hope you enjoyed reading.

January 23rd: Happy 22nd birthday to me.

Hi readers,

So here’s the day I turn twenty-two. Crazy how last year I arranged a party and travelled. Things may be a lot quieter this year, but it doesn’t mean I’m going to be less positive to what the year brings.

Happy birthday to anyone also celebrating a lockdown birthday this month.

Thank you for reading.

January 16th: Why I started blogging.

Hi readers,

As you may know from my previous posts, I’m a pretty sentimental person. So I thought I would remind myself why I started blogging.

I started blogging because I have been following bloggers for a long time. I always thought it looked fun and a means of escape. It looked like a positive thing to do for yourself.

It took a lot of confidence for me to start. But I’m so glad I’ve now done it. It’s something I can see myself doing for a long time,

Thank you for reading.

9th January: Book review. The Skylark’s Secret.

Hi, readers,

So that’s the first book of 2021 read.

This book is included, in kindle unlimited.

The genre of this book is historical fiction.

The theme of this book is a daughter on a journey of discovery of her mother’s life during world war two. Also, a love story that faces adversity. There’s also a lot of cheerful sections, and lots of characters you can relate to. This book is a journey from start to finish.

It’s a great read, with some fantastic writing by Flora Valpy. I would recommend this book.

Thank you for reading.

Take care Lauren x
