A poem from when I was about 15

I was a very angry teenager and this is one of the many poems I wrote. be nice and comment! 

have you ever looked in the mirror,
and hated what you see?

have you ever felt so alone,
that you just want to be?

have you ever felt like,
you have nothing left?

have you ever felt life is just,
one big fuck off test?

have you ever put a smile on,
just to make everyone happy?

have you ever felt theres nothing left,
why is everything all crappy?

have you ever been afraid,
of being who you are?

have you ever wondered,
whats the point in it all?

have you ever had your heart broken so badly,
that you just want to give up and fall?

have you ever fallen asleep,
wishing tomorrow wont come?

have you ever closed your eyes,
and started to weep?

i guess not, its just me then..

Always a inspration..thats my mum.

My mum, well its mothers day comming up and my mum is in spain and some days it hard, i miss her so much, i miss just little things like the copany and friendship i get from her. I rilised today that i only really talk to 5 people in my life, mum, dad, sam, andria and my friend rich. unless its to them or on college days(monday and tuesday) I dont talk to anyone! so I do miss my mum, she is my hero and has inspired me to do and want to do so much. she is a strong woman (she once through scisors into the sink and they made a hole in the sink!) but my mum has always been there through thick and thin and i really dont know what i would do without her. i know i wouldnt be who i am today and i wouldnt be as strong as i am without her.
i wish i could share so many memorys with you, happy times, finny times but i dont think blogger has enough space for it!
My mum is a cook and a bloody good one at that. she has taught me so much and shown me so much of the world and if i ever need strengh i just need to look to her. My mum hasnt had a easy life and i know that but i am also glad she shares things with me, memorys, feelings, places and people. i have this one photo i will see if i can find it, me and my mum and sister are standing together. we are at a wedding and we are the only 2 people wearing black!

Mom's smiles can brighten any moment,
Mom's hugs put joy in all our days,
Mom's love will stay with us forever
and touch our lives in precious ways...

The values you've taught,
the care you've given,
and the wonderful love you've shown,
have enriched my life
in more ways than I can count.
I Love you Mom!

This is Wake up little susie by the everly brothers and it will always make me think of my mum and my nan as my nan would sing this song to my mum when she was little.

My mum is a klutz just like me, she mannaged to step on a saw blade and then walk into a tree!, she is forever breaking her teeth and i have to resist the urge to call her gappy! butI love her no matter what state she is in. She once got stung by a mozquito on both eyelids and looked like she had been in a boxing match! but she has always been there for me and continues to do so. I can't wait to have a child and share the experance with my mum, she used to sing to me as a child (I didn't sleep much) and this went on for hours every night and not once did she get angry or loose her temper. She is so accepting of people and she always see's the good in people. Her and dad were going open a holiday place for special needs and I admire her all the time. She has done and seen a lot in her life and even the hard times were happy times.
Thank you mum for making me as strong and happy as you have I cant wait to see you I miss you and think about you every day mummy i love you mummy.

Dont forget your mum on mothers day.

Bloody youth of today!

Okay I know the title is a little ott but I didn’t know what else to call it, this will be my little rant about "the youth of today!"
Now firstly I would like to ask what the hell is with skinny jeans, I see guys my age with legs skinner than my arm!!! How is this sexy, now don't get me wrong I like my men skinny (always have) but when your legs ate thinner than my arm something is wrong!
Why don’t they make cute Goth clothes for bigger people, I know im on the big side and yes I would love to be skinny but that’s life, if I had the money I would have surgery I know I would without a second thought but it is so hard and depressing trying to find clothes that fit me, I’m not that huge! But I am 5, 10" and it is so hard to find jeans long enough I have been in a shop and tried on some jeans, the length was long (the longest they do) and yet they came to my ankle!!! What the hell am I the only fat tall person?! its stupid im not that tall and yet at every stage I am made to feel like a freak because of my size and the looks I get and the ridicule I receive is hard sometimes for example I was with Princess Andria (you can check her blog here) and some kids about 11 started chucking stones at me okay no biggy I don’t like stones being chucked ebcause I almost lost my eye because some stupid young person chucked it at me but that is a whole different story! okay so we are walking down the road having been to the shop and I am aware that there are stones coming my way and then I suddenly hear "oy Fatty!" and I turned to Andria and said did you hear that, no? Oh they said oy fatty and that was it she turned around and suddenly I was standing up for myself with her. I never would do that alone and I said come say that to my face...when they didn’t I said that’s what I thought. And then A walked at a fast pace to them and one of them did a runner and hid in a church!!! Of all places and I know A wouldn’t hurt them but someone might not be so reserved! I couldn’t believe that kids would say that, I mean when I was growing up if you did that you expected to be grabbed by the collar and dragged home to get shouted at and punished by your parent and yet now a days what would happen if you did that? if they were a nice working family then fine but if they were the poverty stricken families who (turning up with their child) are likely to should abuse at you as much as the child?! My question is waiting? What?!!? You should be a parent act like one! It was your choice to have the child in the first place now deal with it! Anyway rant over I know it probably doesn’t make a huge amount of sense lol! Anyway enjoy!

Body shop, Camomile eye make up remover. Review

Okay well this is my review on body shop eye make up remover, now anything written here is my personal opinion and in no way should it make you judge this product it is only my personal point of view. Other people may think differently about this product.
Now I have always loved body shop make up and products but when I tried this out, wow I must say it gets a 1 star out of 5, yes it removes the make up but it did hurt my eyes and made them very sore, now I don't have sensitive skin or anything but when I used this product it did make my eyes red and slightly puffy, I must say I was not happy at all with this product. I did expect better from body shop as I have said I do enjoy most of the products done by body shop. I guess that's all I can say about this product. feel free to comment or email me or message me.

What is amigurumi?

Amigurumi started off like most things in Japan. It is small (plush) toys/dolls that you can make, I make many amigurumi bits and bobs and I will put some pictures of my bits up here too. I crochet and knit and to be truthful it is so easy!! I wish I had learnt years ago. I’ve been knitting since I was a kid so crochet was just the next step. Now for those of you who knit I will say this...crochet is easier than knitting, it works up faster and you can make many more shapes so I surest you give it a go! You won’t regret it!

So I have now been crocheting for about 3 years and in that time I have made everything, from apples, to cherries, from pigs to monkeys, anything and everything you can think of, I'm even making a pair of boobies for someone special I know. I will be putting up a photo of them when they are both complete!

If you do a search for stuffed knitted or crochet toys, you will keep seeing the word amigurumi. Amigurumi. Do you know what it means? Technically, Amigurumi is "the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small animals or toys". I read that the word amigurumi originally only referred to crocheted critters but over time knitters have created their own amigurumi patterns so now we have toasters and dolls and pencils and snakes. Amigurumi can be anything you can think of.
Most of the pictures I got off google and I don't know where they came from sorry, but the mouse came from here  :

Hair care... Are you washing your hair properly?

Ever feel like the salon seems to wash you hair in an amazing way that makes it clean for days and makes it feel so much better than when you do it. Me too! so I looked into how to wash your hair properly and it turns out yes I have been washing my hair, just not the way the salons do it and I want salon beautiful hair every day! so here is what I have learnt, I will pass my wisdom onto you so you too can have salon perfect hair every time!!
the tips I have for you!..:-

  • Make sure the water isn’t too hot! I know you guys know this but I just thought I should add some basic stuff too.

  • Always brush you hair before going in the shower, and of course when you wake up and before you go to bed. It may seem simple but it will reduce the amount of hair that will get clogged in your drain and it will also reduce breakage as well as stimulate circulation going in your scalp.

  • When you put shampoo on star at the roots and work your way out to the tips, I use my fingers almost like a spider and lather up the shampoo. I also must say I use a good dollop of shampoo when I do it.

  • This is a big one when washing your hair :Once you think your hair is fully lathered and you are ready to wash off, think again. give yourself a good two minute scalp massage with your fingertips, I normal do it for about 5 mins depending on how bad my fingers are that day. Don't forget circular motions!! About every 20 seconds, While doing this add just a little bit more water to your hands and work it into your hair. What you are doing is helping your shampoo so that it can work the best and doing this also improves circulation in your scalp.

  • I use 2 lots of shampoo and conditioner, so that means, wet hair, shampoo, wash off, shampoo, wash off, conditioner, wash off, conditioner, wash off. and done. I do this about once a week now but if you feel you need it more that’s fine

  • Massage with your fingertips, but not too vigorously! Do not mound hair on top of your head to scrub it, this will cause tangles. You can also use clawed fingers to get the shampoo into the scalp. Make sure you get the shampoo/conditioner everywhere on your scalp.
  • You can use a flat comb (or just use your fingers) and comb out all the knots to make it extra smooth before you use conditioner. Also I do brush my hair with conditioner in for really smooth hair.

  • Start at the tips with conditioner! and them move up to the roots. Some people don’t like to use conditioner on the roots but I do so this is of course my tips for you.

  • End with a rinse of icy cold water. I don’t do this tho but I am letting you know what I have found out! This will not prevent frizz, as you may think cold, but it will give hair shine, but I do find my hair is shiny as it is and I don’t do this. But Water acts to "close the pores" of your hair (as it does with skin), so your hair will look shinier when it dries.

T-zone, blackhead face scrub. Review.

Wow I friggin love, Love, LOVE this product! It is amazing and really good value for money and is my favourite product of all of the things I use. I really love this I feel it working on my skin and I can see and feel a difference. I use it every day as a wash and wow I really don't feel I'm up and awake unless I have washed my face with this. I use it everyday and I would recommend if you have very sensitive skin to use it every couple of days. Now my skin is very robust so when I use this I damp my face then put a good blob on my hand and get to cleaning and scrubbing those pores. I scrub quite hard and I do this for about 5 mins, I then wash it off and carry on with my day. I love how much clearer my skin looks after and I will see if I can do some before and after photos so you guys can see the difference!. I recommend this 100% and give this 5 stars!!! it is really a amazing product! if you suffer black heads and break outs I do recommend you get this product its only about £3 and you wont regret it! Please feel free to comment/message me.

I Tweet and Have a Facebook page too!

I Tweet and Have a Facebook page too! so pelase feel to add me or like or whatever it is you kids do these days! I look faward to hearing from you!.

Sally Hanson HD Nail Polish.

Okay well lookie at the bargain I got I love how bright these are!! They look so fun and so good for the summer, I cant wait till I have some ideas on nail art to do with them! your ideas are very welcome. so we have 5 colours, blue, pink, yellow, purple and green.
Now what I love about these is they really do stand out, big time! the pink and blue are my faves of these I just find they are really something different.
They have a shimmer to them that just makes me think of summer and bright weather and on a gloomy dark day I recommend painting your nails with these to bring some joy and colour to a otherwise gloomy dark day. The photos really don't do them justice and at some point I will get some better ones of them in the sunshine and in proper light.

Rachie Rants.

Okay well if you read some of my info you know I have a few medical problems and well this will just be a little rant I feel like having because I get sick of pills and doctors! Okay well....Here goes,
Okay firstly I'm on 36 pills a day?!?! what the hell? is that normal for a 22 year old to be on so many pills? no! Instead of looking at what is wrong with me they just chuck more pills at me. I go in saying this pill isn't working and hm... lets see we will just put you on a higher dose because I mean if it hasn't kicked in within 3 months well then a miracle will happen and I will suddenly feel so much better! Maybe its because i don't believe in god maybe this is his way of saying screw you! lol.
I cant believe it, last year i was in hospital with belly pain and you know what they bloody did?! they put me on liquid morphine and i was crapping myself it was really scary as i know they give that stuff to the people who are going to die! i was really scared, it was not nice at all and i found some of the staff were rude, its like this nurse was sorting the pills i started having a panic attack and went outside for a smoke and to chat to my partner on the phone (i couldn't get signal in the ward) so i come back and i said i was sorry for missing the pills but i had a panic attack and needed to phone my partner and you know what she said?! no you didn't you were smoking! i couldn't believe someone had dismissed my panic attack and accused me of lying, i got very upset, i was not in a good place as it was.
i don't sleep much, in new places I'm worse so i had my laptop with me and the people complained rudely that i was making too much noise i said i was very sorry and would make sure i was quieter the next night. so the next morning after being as quiet as i can, i asked did anyone have a problem with it? nope no one did, then just before bed (its a bad time for me anyway as i do panic at night more and always have) one of the most rude people i have ever met said to me that everyone had a problem and they told me if i was going to stay up then i had to use my laptop in the waiting room, which i must say was freezing. I was very upset to be kicked out my bed and be spoken down to. Maybe I'm just over sensitive but i was very upset.
Okay now back to today and now, Well I have a diagnosis of fibromyalgia, depression, anxiety, agoraphobia, sickness stuff, Head aches and Acid reflux. Okay now I will go into more detail about each one in another post. I am now on 36 pills a day...If I take them! lol. Anyway now you know a bit more about me and my many problems, I am sure I will be putting more posts up about this so keep watching the stars! lol I don't know where that came from!
