Struggling with my weight

At the moment I really am struggling with my weight, i am trying to lose weight on my legs and bottom but it isn't happening. The reason why I ended putting loads of weight on is due to the Pill, I started to take it to help control my periods and one of the side effects is putting on weight which happened to me :(. The biggest struggle for me is not having sweets as i have a massive sweet tooth, and due to easter i am trying to not eat all the chocolate at once but trying to eat it as fast as i can, so i can get on with losing weight. I have started to do squats which fingers crossed will help, but i won't give up trying to lose it. Do you have any good ways to lose weight if so comment below and give me tips and give anyone lee reading tips .

The Struggles of being Petite

When it comes to finding clothes I really do struggle to find thing that fit me, because I am 5ft and there is not much clothes out their for small people. Yes some places do have a Petite section but then the Petite section is not very big. The main thing I struggle with are trousers, maxi skirts and maxi dresses ( which I happen to love).

The main places I shop are Miss Selfridge, Boohoo.com and Asos. Now each shops have their pros and cons.

Miss Selfridge: They have very nice clothes but they not much Petite items.

Boohoo.com: Their maxi dress are the perfect length for me but once again not many items but over the months ( considering they only just started their petite section) their petite section has been growing and getting better.

Asos: Have a massive petite range but when it comes to wearing maxi dresses you need to be wearing high heels for it to me an ok length even then the dress is still touching the floor so you're nearly tripping over :(.

Over the years I have noticed stores have been getting better at recognising Petite people but wish they had more options for use Petite people as there is nothing more annoying than having a lot of fabric and the bottom of your legs making your legs look weird. So hopefully in the near future stores will see us Petite people and cater for us.

Coconut Oil

For a few weeks I have been using Palmer's Coconut Oil Formula


The Coconut Oil I use is a spray, I have been using each time I wash my hair also occasionally on the other days. Since using the spray I have noticed a massive difference in my hair it has become a lot more softer and isn't as dry as it was. The product was very cheap only £3.99 and you don't need to spray a lot onto your hair so it will last a long time.

Diversity

Just over a week ago Youtuber Grace Mandeville created a video on her and her sisters channel The Mandeville Sisters about Diversity.


 If you don't know who Grace is she is a Youtuber/Actress who was born with a shortened forearm. In Grace's video she talked about how we don't see many Youtubers who are different, as most ( please don't hate me for saying this it's my opinion) Youtubers are perfect. Yes I know everyone has something wrong with them but in my eyes they are all really good looking. I agree with Grace it would be nice to see more people like Grace as everyone is different not everyone looks like a model, it would also be nice to see more well know Youtubers who where different at it would show young people its ok to be different not to look or be perfect, as everyone comes in different shapes and sizes but thats not shown much on youtube WHY.

The reason why i feel strongly about this is i am not the most attractive girl (i also have a condition that effects my skin most people probs can't see it but i know its there), and this is a main reason why i haven't shown my face on this blog yet, as i feel i don't have much self confidence, but hey ho you know what since Grace's Video it's made me think, Yes i am different but so what i should be happy about that i shouldn't hide away. So made one day soon i feel confident to show my face/ body on this blog.

Jelly Belly Strawberry Jam Drink

A few days ago I purchased this drink 
It is Strawberry Jam flavoured drink made by Jelly Belly. The drink was imported from America and was roughly £2.00. I wasn't too sure about the drink considering it is Strawberry Jam which I find is too sweet but this drink wasn't sweet at all. I would 100% buy this drink again as I loved it that much and I can't wait to try other flavours from the jelly belly drink range. Have you tried any american drinks if so which ones and were they nice.
