Busy Times, Balance, Good News & Stress

Busy day, so busy that it sort of border lined on the edge of stressy. I stayed positive through it all because let’s face it, I don’t have it bad and nor do I ever partake in letting stress get the better of my kitten self. However, on the whole, I just believe that things should be dealt with positively, as stressy manners are ungraceful. It can turn ‘pretties’ into animals with a quick dash. When it comes to love or life, taking educated baby steps seems to always work and keep you out of trouble. So, to those of you who are fumbling through mayhem, be it physical, mental, emotional or financial…work smart and not hard, that is the key to all success. Yet makes sure that everything you are giving is of value…then of course have a rummy cocktail and share the positive glow with others. I mean, fuck it form a joyous conga line and you know how much I hate conga lines. They always seem so awkward at the end, when the fun is drizzling out and people don’t know if the ‘conga’ part of the line is still going or has come to an ‘everyones gone to the bar instead’ end? Plus when your eyes follow down the line, you will notice that everyone isn’t really having fun. They’re sort of just ‘going through the motions’ and pretending that good times are occurring. Honestly, watch one closely, it’s only the one at the front of the line that is actually have an ‘arms up and everything’ blast.

A lot has happened today, people suffered from ‘Blue Monday,’ other’s bought rose gold candle holders, some thought that chicken and bacon toasties lessened in calories if they were microwaved and my other chick friend, who is of an extreme girly nature, was FORCED TO DRIVE a giant yellow ROOFING VAN to work, after reading a note that said,

‘I’ve gone to work without you, but left you the van.’ 

All i heard as she burst through the door was..

‘Chrissie! It’s digusting! I’m driving a giant yellow van and it’s filled with bits of food, cigarette buds and all kinds of crap. I’M HAVING TO DRIVE THAT AROUND.’

I pissed myself laughing simply because it’s not every day you get to make like you’re a glammy roofing service.

‘Hey, I wear heels and can fix roofs and shit.’

However, I will tell you that I am a GERMAPHOBE! I would’ve literally DIED if I had to drive in a ‘bits of food everywhere’ van. I’d have to close my eyes and not touch anything, which would be rather awkward when trying to operate a moving vehicle. The van and I would have to contemplate one another’s existence and it’s a simple fact, we just wouldn’t get along.

‘Drive me!’

‘You’re mucky!’

Okay, away from that, I am mentally busy as well as physically busy. I’m going through ‘ups and downs’ that i’m choosing to worry about. Yippee! Lol. I need to chillax a bit instead of stressing my glamourous self out. I’m hoping for the best and expecting nothing. But yes, I need to worry less about the things that I can’t control. Once you’ve batted that glitter ball out of the ball park, you’ve just got to let it fly until someone jumps and *catches* it.

HOWEVER, along with the stress, i’ve blessed with a balance of really great news. I’ve received some wonderful emails today, that have again ‘shimmied me up rung’ that little bit higher. And to be fair, there was more great news, than ‘blue’ news…so on the whole, I’ve done pretty well. I always think it’s important to notice your personal ‘achievements’ (and it’s hard when you’re highly ambitious) because your goals are so far stretched. But if you can’t *pat* YOURSELF on the back once in a while, then your soul is never satisfied and to me… that’s highly unattractive. Be ambitious, but smell the roses.

I have a few things coming up this week. I’m setting up for a Chrissie Wunna ‘Cocktail Tour.’ There’s more about that later and you’ll hear about it, because i’ll force it upon you. 🙂 but basically there are now so many places that are inviting me over to ‘tinker’ that I might as well go on tour. But i’m not stupid, at least it’s a tour where I can get …pissed. 🙂 The good thing about this tour,  is that you will have the opportunity to join me…as days out with moi, are going to be up for grabs.

I have a few interviews with magazines that ‘wave the flag’ for the things that I love and represent. I’m getting booked up and i’m getting booked up fast and for some reason i’m not able to keep up with my social media? It’s hard, as when you’re busy, finding time to constantly post ain’t easy. You’re my audience and my current success has been frisbeed from both the ‘social’ world and all things Cyberland. I owe you everything. I never take ti for granted. So yes, I need to post more socially.

On Wednesday I’m headed to a Celebrity Makeup Masterclass and I’m going to be finding time to hang out with the lovely Lisa Appleton and Liam Halewood, who I did Blackpool with last week, as we comitted time to Mexican cocktail

Lisa’s just got back from Spain, after holidaying with my other buddy Mark Byron. (I’ve just seen the pictures of it all in the Daily Mail today and it just makes me giggle. Lord knows what those two got up to, on Spanish soil as they are literally the funnest people that I have ever encountered. If they see a ‘good time,’ they will go forth and embrace it.)

But yes, I have a lot to tell you however I can’t do it now.

Life has changed fast.

I love you…I’ll chat tomorrow.

(I’ve just recieved a whatsapp message…?’ )

London Business Man: ‘You’ve forgotten about me.’

 

 

 

Sex, Work, Single life & Genitals?

I cannot even tell you how busy i’ve been and i’ve loved it. I’ve loved every single waking moment of it, like the dewy dripped deliciousness of ‘dreams come true.’ I’ve worked really hard at everything and yeah there have been times where in which it’s been tricky and jingle jangled in obstacles. Yet, I must have downed a wine and jousted through them without truly realizing. Y’know ungracefully *hitched* over the brick wall, only to turn back around, *wink* at it and find it transforming into glitter. This is a year of change for me. That year. The year where I *unzip* out of the old and with my head to the skies smiling… i’m ‘ashes rising.’ It’s almost a ‘sexy’ year. On this day LAST year (and I hardly ever back track, I see it as unhealthy) I received a really hideous ‘hate mail’ message that I glorified with the best comeback blog ever. So great, that that blog post, even to this day is STILL my most viewed blog post of all time. It’s a shame that my ‘highest ranking’ was stemmed from ‘hate mail’ and simply by someone who tried to gain a little ‘look at me’ via making others ‘look at ME’ in a more negative manner. I actually gained a lot of support…and well, this time last year, I quite positively thought that I was doing pretty great career wise. However, if I compare it to where I am at this point THIS YEAR…it’s amazing how FAR I’ve actually come. So, even though i hate to back track, I will say that looking back & reflecting, is beneficial when it comes to *pausing* for a second and realizing that you’ve achieved. You forget to notice sometimes and because you’ve been so busy.

And boy have I been busy. I’ve been so busy that I’ve felt like i’mon  a glittery pink treadmill, that’s been turned up to ‘full speed,’ yet i’m in crystal Loubotuins, ‘yessing’ everyone, ‘no..ing’ those who aren’t quite right and i’m running, i’m tottering so fast that i’m racing against time…with a pina colada in my hand and a *wink* that is sprinkled with charm on repeat. I’ve been working through the day, blogging when i can, single mummying ALWAYS and then in then in the evening flying off to any event of my choice that i’ve been invited to. It’s felt like i’m on some kind of crazy cocktail, picture taking Wunna tour. And the weird thing is…i’m not even complaining. I’m shattered. But it’s felt so right that internally i’m smiling. That’s how you know ‘career wise’ that you’re doing something that you love, something that’s right for you, as you’ll always make time for it, because it makes you happy. It doesn’t feel liek work, no matter how shattered you are.

I will now say that I did opt for rescheduling my entire work weekend, simply because I felt as though i needed a ‘moment.’ My body was so exhausted that i just needed to refill (…myself with champagne cocktails :). ) Noooo. I just needed a day off, to enjoy the babies, be a mum, not feel the pressure of an audience and only because when i’m knackered I can’t shimmie to the BEST of my ability. It only takes a day or two…then I can replace myself back in that canon and *shoot* myself out again, but with full force. Everything’s been successfully rescheduled, with more on top, so I couldn’t be happier, as I have some really exciting people and places to venture! I can’t even tell you how excited am I. Right now, it’s so bizarre because there are so many places asking me to visit and a bundle of places that I personally are wanting to visit, so i’ve asked…that if i wanted to, I could set up some 300 day tour. Lol. I can’t BELIEVE HOW FAR THIS LITTLE BLOG HAS COME. And I can’t believe that PEREZ HILTON (who I LOVE and i’m completely inspired by) liked the fact that I’m a FINALIST in this years UK BLOG AWARDS! As if!!! AND he sent me cyber kisses, after I stated that his absence in Celebrity Big Brother is…well…I said ‘shite.’ (I know…I put it so poetically. 🙂 ) About 10 years about, I worked at Crunch Gym, just as the check in and ‘give you a towel’ girl. It was one of the best jobs I ever had. It was so much fun and I met so many different, yet familiar faces every day. It was stimulating. But one of those faces that I checked in almost every day, before he became GIANTLY famous, was Perez Hilton…So it’s really great to be 10 years on and able to look back on development. Why am I being so reflective? I need a rum. This is shit.

However, the great thing about this last week, has been the fact that i’ve been surrounded by the greatest chick friends. How any ‘Glamour Puss’ lives life, without her ‘Girl Soldiers’ (cue: Beyonce) is beyond me? You need them. You really do. And yeah, we’re all pretty different and range from the ages of 21 to sixty something…But without that daily check in, ‘Double B’s’ unexplainable banter and Mel’s daily, ‘but i’ve have melon’ announcement (she’s the slim girl that goes to your local Slimming world weigh in, who you despise for being slim because she can chow down half a pack of Rich Tea biscuits, lose weight and justify the *binge* with a ‘But i’ve just had a bowl of melon’ )….Without the balance of one another…we’d all fall to pieces.

I think the problem with me, is that I’m quite ‘boy bantery,’ even though i’m ever much the girl. I’ve always had a lot of guy friends, that now i’m really embracing having chick friends, because it brings out that inner girl, that you need in order to radiate and be a girl. Maybe that’s where i’ve been going wrong on the dating scene, because I never seem to be able to let a guy be a man, without being their hot bantery chick friend, looking after myself financially or taking control of the situation emotionally. What I mean by that is that i’ll chase to get what I want in love… and that’s lame. I’m lame. And it’s only because in business and in life by nature, i’m used to zooming forward with clout in an attempt to get what I want. I’m proactive. Lol. However, now I FEEL more girly and it’s the delicate girliness in me that seems to be bringing the gents forward…I’m playful and i’m divary…yet like i always say, until you meet me, you don’t realise that I have this soft warmth.

It’s funny because i’ve had some people meet me and say,

‘It’s weird because I thought after all the tit pics that you’d be an absolute  nightmare, but you are so much more sophisticated than I imagined.’

YET at the same time, I’ve had people say,

‘I thought you’d be so ultra high maintenance and up your own arse, yet you are literally so down to earth…’ 

So, i guess i’m both? The key is your initial perception of me.

Yet going back to ‘Girl Soldiers’….you don’t have great chick friends, that you see on a daily, unless you are comfy enough to discuss PENIS. If you could read my blog notes from the week, which are literally just quick bullets on the ‘notes’ section of my iphone, (which reminds me i’m due an upgrade,) you would wee yourself a little with laughter. The fact that i’ve executively typed ‘PUBE NATION’ makes into my phone, makes me DIE with belly laughs.

So, I guess I had started a conversation about sex and how I haven’t had any in ages…months….in fact and that it actually felt great. I’m dating no one, i’m single and i’m so happy and so busy that I’m not even plonking legs at ‘ten to two‘ as they say.. on bed sheets…ANYWHERE after cocktails! 🙂 Like i said, I do intend on finding my ideal partner…I want to fall in love. However, right now, unless they did all the chasing and really wanted to date me, or if i really really *hearted* them…I wouldn’t have time to date at all. I’m shattered.

But anyway, ‘Double B’ decided to tell everyone that she didn’t want to give blow jobs anymore because her ‘Beau’ has a penis that (wait for it) LOOKS LIKE ME! HAHAHA.

‘Honestly, Chrissie! It looks like YOU when you’re in your GIANT PARTY WEAVE. I can’t even look at it!’ 

HAHAHA. If you are unaware as to what my ‘Party Weave’ IS, know that it is the most biggest and most intense piece of head wear, ANY GIRL could endure on a night out. It is the BIGGEST AMOUNT OF HAIR… ON A HAIR PIECE… EVER MADE. That’s what her boyfriend’s willy looks like. I wonder whether it *pouts* too and takes Selfies?

Then, like that wasn’t enough, she then went on to tell me a story about how she knew this guy who hadn’t had sex or wanked off in THREE ENTIRE YEARS. (Odd news, when you’re about to calmly eat a pasty.) Anyway, he got lucky and manged to *bone* (‘Firmonnell’ always tells me off for saying *Bone*) a girl who just so happened to be ‘Double B’s’ friend…

‘Honestly Chrissie, she had just had sex with him, came over to mine and when she took off her top, to get in the bath, IT SMELT LIKE ROTTEN EGGS. His spunk had stayed in him for SO LONG that it had turned ROTTEN. I’ve never smelt anything like it!!!’

Hahahaha! She makes my blog too easy on me.

But does that happen? Spunk doesn’t turn rotten. It doesn’t have a ‘best before end’ date, does it? However, I do think that it’s unhealthy to have it stashed in you, going ‘rotten’ for years on end. Lol. Boys can’t win. They’re mucky if they always *splurge* it out and they’re mucky if they decide to hold it all in. It’s rubbish being a gent. Poor sods!

Men are just weird creatures in general. No wonder, why i haven’t managed to come across my perfect find. This morning I had Twitter banter with Tom Zanetti over a video he had received from a middle aged gentleman, who had taken a moment of his life to plonk a blond wig and make up on and place TWO cut out pictures of TOM on his nipples. HAHAHAAH. He sent Tom the video on twitter…and it was so funny that you couldn’t cry for laughing. We’ve been pissing ourselves about it non stop. I mean, it takes some balls doesn’t it, so i’ll give him a high five for that, as he succeeded in the art of gaining Tom’s attention. Yet it did make me consider burning my own eyes out..and i’ve been, seen and done it all. Lol. But hey ‘potatoe/pottato,’ some people wake up on a Sunday morning and praise the Good Lord Jesus Christ. Others glue Zanetti to their nipples for Twitter videos and hit ‘send.’ Lol. I love it!

I’m always going to be single aren’t I!

Maybe it’s a blessing.

There’s a whole lot of ‘city’ and for once, I’ll tell ya, i’m thankful that there’s not that much sex. 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Work, Blackpool, Drama’s & Cocktails

‘What did she say?’

‘Gonorrhea..’

‘Are you sure?’

‘Defintely!’ 🙂 

Yes, today is the day where I spent a moment of my life, (oh life) listening ‘Fairytale Blond’ proudly tell  ‘Hot Sarah’ her story of how she has an immune system disease, with a Pukka tea in her hand, that she shared and it was delicious. For some reason I made the executive decision to change her disease to ‘Gonorrhea’..and ‘Chinese Whisper’ it on to Firmonnell. 🙂 🙂

I don’t even know? I was bored, even though it was busy. But it was funny! I need to entertain the masses, as we’re again going through lots of changes. Plus, they all know we well enough anyway and just went with my Tom Foolery for kicks, APART FROM ‘Firmonnell’ who decided to nag at me for inaccurately delivering the story of her ‘breast milk pancake’ club.

‘What was INACCURATE about YOU joining a Mum’s club that MADE breast milk pancakes for fun??? You said that!’

‘No i didn’t! I said I was JUST THERE. I DIDN’T MAKE THE PANCAKES out of fucking breast milk.

Hahaha, like  ‘just BEING there’ wasn’t hilarious enough????? Don’t know about you, but i’ve lived a rather eventful life! Y’know, I’ve coloured outside every box, danced with fire, as it’s danced along with me…but not ONCE in my ENTIRE EXISTENCE have I EVER had the delicious experience of ‘breast milk pancake friends’ AND at a community centre. HAHAHAHA. DYING!

Again..this is probably why i’m single! 🙂 I’m a tit. But one that doesn’t produce pancakes. 🙂

I don’t think i’m actually adoring being a singleton right now. I’m not liking it as much as I thought. (That isn’t a grene light for everyone to jump on in. I’m not a desperado…I can still hol dout for the right pick. Lol.

I love, love. I love the fun and loveliness that comes with joining forces with a team mate. Y’know, someone who understands you and does life with you, someone you can build an ’empire’ with and enjoy secrets with..all of that. Someone you love and take care of. I really hope to find that guy. I really hope to fall in love, as my relationship with WORK I have down now. We get on well, because i’ve nurtured that rapport. Lol. I’m headed on the right track and doing it well. I’m feeling confident. (Even though there’s been a lot of entertainment type, other work ‘DRAMA’ today, for no real reason? If I despise anything it’s drama. I get my giant glitter scissors out and cut myself away from it all immediately, as I just see it as negative and what I know in life is that NEGATIVE PEOPLE, who don’t radiate a warmth or a kindness NEVER EVER DO AS WELL AS THEY WISH. And they never do well because they waste so much of their time concentrating on bitterness instead of focusing on being better. It’s that simple.)

But yes, now that i’ve preached. Life is great! It’s always great because i have the best friends, family and colleagues around me constantly, who without them even knowing keep me grounded, smiling and..well sharp witted. Lol. I’m cheeky, i’m charming and i’m dashed in what I call ‘glamourousity.’ When my ‘entertainmenty’ world is turning into madness, and it is a mad world, as the business of ‘show’ is a cut throat industry. It’s almost unreal…it’s a dog eat dog kinda game of ‘who does it best’….And well it’s during those times when the ‘family, friends and colleagues,’ make everything okay again without them even knowing. I appreciate that and more than they would ever think.

I guess i’m going through a weird  ‘becareful what you wish for, as you just might get it’ stage. I’m happy and I’m working hard and I understand all that, I mean GOD i grew up in Hollywood. Yet when there’s glitter drama swirling around me, i’m really good at keeping my eye on the prize, concentrating on what matters, staying focused and just doing what I love and loving what I do. (By myself.) I get ahead in the time that people waste and it makes a difference.

I’m doing really well right now and I’m working really hard for everything that seems to be coming into ‘bloom.’ More than anything i’m adoring every moment of writing this blog. Giving back creatively and telling the story of my life, as I go along… to ME.. is simply wonderful. Like I always tell you, this blog, is literally the only thing that I have been disciplined and accidentally dedicated to for almost a decade. Before all the modelling in LA, TV stuff, love life dramas and everything in between occurred….there was this blog. AND I LOVED IT. I even loved it before it was public and when it was still just a little jotter that I scribbled in with a biro, on my sunny balcony in West Hollywood on Kings Road, as my neighbour Cletus, popped out (we sort of shared the balcony) to make cups of tea and give me advice, as my love life was always shitty. An ‘almost’ decade onward, a whole new life, continent, three failed marriages and two babies later, i’m STILL writing it, loving it…BUT NOW everyone is listening…

That little balcony jotter, 8 years on… has turned into a FINALIST in the UK BLOG AWARDS THIS YEAR! It’s crazy. My life is just…crazy. So, I know my time will come…and when it does…(and it seems to be going well,) i’ll make impact. It’s not how MUCH you do…it’s the impact you make when you do it.

ANYWAY, aside from all that! Thank you for all your emails and messages. I read them ALL even though I kinda don’t get enough time to always reply! I’m doing an ‘Ask me anything’ blog shortly and weeing myself at some of the questions you’ve drop kicked into my inbox. Lol. I’m really excited to whop out my replies…but mainly because i’m an ego maniac. 🙂 I enjoy it. I love a Q& A. Lol.

People have also been asking me about my time with Blackpool. Why I was there? What I was doing? Well, after I shot for House of Solo Magazine in Leeds, I shot down to Manchester and then to Sunny Blackpool to meet up with Liam Halewood for a couple of evening cocktails. It was really great, as I’d never really met him before, yet i watched him on Xtra Factor and knew that his spirit was hilarious.

I arrived in Blackpool, he picked me up from the station with his friend Aaron, who was sweet and oozed a kindness…and then after I was driven to his, I had a cuppa tea, talked to ‘Alexa,’ who is this Amazon robot thing that does everything you tell it too! OH mY GOD! Literally EVERYTHING you tell it to! You tell ‘Alexa’ to sing for you..She whops out a tune…You tell her to turn on the lights, or pop on the kettle…SHE FUCKING DOES….like magic. I NEED TO MARRY ALEXA. I then met his dog Jimmy, appreciated the stylishness of his home, giggled the evenings events with Aaron and then met Liam’s husband.

We got changed, we had fun, we gossiped about people and went out for windy cocktails in Blackpool. So much fun. A hilarious evening. I couldn’t even walk in my diamantee heels AND I WAS SOBER. But cut me some slack, do remember that I had been up at the crack of dawn doing the fashion shoot in Leeds, after the longest week of ‘every hour going’ work….I did well to get my glad rags on and do cocktails under then night lights of Blackpool with the boys. Yet, i always say that it’s the company you choose to keep that determines how much of a great time you’ll have. I couldn’t have been in better company. It was one of those random ‘good times,’ filled with laughter witty banter, and just letting lose. I needed to feel free for a moment…as i’d been working SO hard that a ‘melt down’ could’ve occured. Lol. Plus, I hadn’t drank all day, so i needed to feel comfy and I needed a wine, before we even started the night out. So we walked to the shop to get one quickly, as you need one when you’re getting ready. Liam looked all styley, with his shoe game on point. I WENT IN MY ONESIE. 🙂 I know!! Whatever, it was cold outside and it felt so cosy. AND the shop was literally two seconds away.

‘Chrissie they haven’t got a mini wine??’

‘Ugh! What is there?’

‘You an get a can of Jack Daniels! Lol!’

‘But do they sell straws? I can’t drink out of a mini wine or a can of JD without a straw. I’ll look like a DICKHEAD!’

I had totally forgotten that I was STOOD in the middle of a guy’s newsagents IN MY ONESIE, already looking like  prize twat, whilst in heels and concerning myself over the fact that I hadn’t got a straw for my goddamn can of JD. 🙂

‘Look! I’ll just buy a Ribena and you can use THAT straw.’

See! I adore people who come up with solutions to my problems. Lol. Ribena is purchased, the straw is placed in my can of Jack Daniels in a can. I’m now the happiest girl in all of the world. I’m armed with a Gucci bag. Yes, I looked THAT terrible…and as soon as we walk out the newsagents…

*PAP/PAP/PAP/PAP/PAP*

(It actually happened ALL night, wherever we went.)

Now….in these situations, you can either shy away or you can realise that even though you’re comfy, you look like a tool and commit to it. Ofcourse I went for commit to it…and well we all know that i’m the exact opposite to camera shy. I took my facebook slutty onesie pics to the NEXT LEVEL. Hahah.

It’s a good time. We laughed all the way back to his…nearly got run over….but laughed….

‘Fucking hell, i’m not going down like that!’

Then we got changed for our night out. It’s was a windy night and we were meant to go for posh beachfront cocktails at Beach House. But it was closed.

So instead we tottered into into ‘Las Iguanas,’ which was across the street and filled with a bright ‘life.’ You know how much I love a fun Mexican joint. It’s one of my favourite types of ‘hang outs’ as there’s always something quite relaxed yet exciting about them. My second husband was Mexican. Being Chrissie Martinez for a bit was hilarious. Before that, I was a ‘Weverstad’ and then when I got to England, I was a ‘Thompson’…Then there was just ME again….as a Wunna! 🙂 And even though I get along with all three guys so well…I’m much happier.

We all enjoyed cocktails and the most delicious nibble trays at ‘Las Iguanas.’ I’d definitely go again. The food was delicious. Plus, I adore a good nibble plate. It was great! We bantered about life and love. Just all sorts really.

I guess Liam had been in there before, he seems to know everyone in Blackpool. He’s pretty much just produced and put together his own reality show, called ‘Fylde Coast’ that depicts life in Blackpool, yet one that shows you a more glamourous and fun side to it. I’ve officially done cocktails in Blackpool now so I can literally tell you that been there IS a glamourous side to it! I watched the trailer of the show on his phone, whilst I was sat on the sofa and let me tell you.. I was pretty ‘hooked.’ If you enjoy tongue in cheek, yet fun reality shows…then you will LOVE  ‘Fylde Coast.’ I hope it does well! 🙂

That night was a great night, as I got to let loose for a second during a very busy, busy work week.

Yet, as per usual, I was dashed to the train station when the clock struck ‘time to leave’…and just like that, after a few selfies, an evening of being papped and a great time meeting new friends…I waved Blackpool ‘goodbye,’ as my train left Platform 6…and made it’s way to Manchester Piccadilly.

(Y’know, when it got to Manchester Piccadilly and in the 7 minutes that I had before I was headed to Leeds…and whilst some strange gentleman was trying to hide the fact that he was smoking on the platform, yet still managing to do weird slutty faces at me…I AGAIN, used my 1 percent of my remaining life to Snapchat Steven Bartlett. Not to be creepy or anything…well, i’m sure i look creepy….But I had seen his snap a day before or so, which was asking people to give ‘ask HIM’ anything’ for his Q & A. I actually have A HUNDRED THINGS TO ASK HIM, so this was music to my ears, but i just couldn’t find a spare minute to simply send a ‘snap’ to him. I found that minute…on Platform 13 of Manchester Piccadilly, now 3 minutes before my train arrived. I began filming….and just as i was about to ask my question….MY PHONE DIED. What is my life!)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Busy, Busy, Shoot, Shoot, Busy

ac32

7am Monday morning came with a text…

‘I’m outside..’

And just like that I dashed out of my home in my pink faux fur, stepped into a car and made my way to ‘ Hainsworth’ textiles (they make clothes for the actual Royal Family, ie/ Prince Williams Wedding outfit etc…) in Leeds, where I was ‘booked out and looked out’ to shoot for the Spring edition of the High Fashion magazine ‘House of Solo.’ (You all already know, that I know Abeiku Arthur, who owns the Magazine and company…So it couldn’t have been a more fulfilling adventure. I mean, to me nothing is better than working with friends that you respect and trust, who are ambitious and like minded, yet also warm, kind and a lot of fun. Someone that actually knows you and understands you. God! I’ve sold you well Dude! LOL!)

So, i’m not going to tell you a lot about the shoot itself or the premise of it, as the Spring Edition of the high fashion magazine is going to be out at the beginning of next month. (I did however Snapchat my time at the shoot, chrissiewunna1, so if you didn’t follow it, or watch it via social media, it’s kinda your own fault. 😉 Lol)

However, when  the Spring Edition of ‘House of Solo’ is out in print and online, i’ll give you the whole behind the scenes magically swirl of Wunna land.

I’m a writer by nature, a ‘life’ blogger and an accidental ‘marketeer’…So i’ve proof read the article that will go along with my pictures and contrary to popular belief, the article MATTERS to me GREATLY…as it has to relate to something that I believe in, that i’m passionate about…I’m not someone who’ll just ‘look at the pictures’…i’ll absorb, understand and creatively dance with it. So if i stand by something, or follow something, it’s because I genuinely find it so interesting and CARE about it passionately. I understand WHY, I do everything and sometimes people don’t? But yes, the article isn’t is short and pretty intellectual, with a fun twist of ‘current.’ It’s very ME and it gives you something to maybe think about…? In Abeiku Arthur’s mind, I was the IDEAL choice to ‘picture’ for this particular article and I recommend him for having such great judgment. Lol.

During the shoot (and my wardrobe was ‘just diamond encrusted heels’) I managed to break a coffee machine, I managed to to relive my ‘model’ days, I looked through some of the other people’s pictures, who had also shot for the magazine, I ventured onto Tom Zanetti’s set, where he had pictured the other week and IF NOTHING ELSE I had a LAUGH! I mean, I can’t even tell you how grateful and lucky I feel, as it’s not very often that you get the opportunity to shoot for glamourous High Fashion magazine, that you personally LOVE to read. That part of it all is CRAZY. And like I always say, I have a ‘Diva’ persona that people often go with and misjudge. I’m ambitious yes, which dashes me in ‘diva’ and  i’m determined, which is ‘Boss fierce,’ yet placed in a bag and shaken with glitter and dedication. So to meet me, you’ll find that i’m soft, warm and fun and maybe a bit different to how you would imagine?  And I only believe that to be true because all of my close friends SAY that I’m different to how others perceive me? I’m one of those positive beings that gives her ALL in starlight. When someones working alongside me, they usually have a smile in their eyes AND I LOVE THAT, it makes it all WORTHWHILE. So yes, more than anything, I just FEEL grateful. (But yes, I am also totally naked in the magazine… aside from a set of diamond encrusted heels.  HAHAHA!)

Y’know, it’s SO difficult to hold it all in and have to WAIT to tell you about my time on the shoot, as it’s all blissfully buzzing around my head, like bees around an oozing honey pot. But, oh my God, did we laugh! It was a moment of my life that was drenched in Wunna magic. I guess, it’s  one thing to know someone when they’re in business mode and fully clothed and another thing to then have them  stark bollock naked in front of you, in heels and boobies, belly laughing and chatting to you about dreams, work and life. It’s like the Queen doing a speech in just diamantee nipple tassles. Trump dressed in ‘drag’ on his giant ‘useless’ 🙂 election tour. I’m The Queen of MY WORLD and well I only ‘trump’ glitter….:) ….That day, I did MY meetings… in nothing but heels. Lol. (Why am I even single???  Surely there has GOT to be someone out there that adores me, who I could actually ADORE back?)

Anyway, yes, enough of all that! When the magazine comes out! I’ll invite into the delicious world of it all!

I will tell you that I am currently SHATTERED. Borderline wiggling on exhaustion due to work. I secretly love it, as i’m a horrific workaholic. But like you, I just have a dream and i’m working really hard to get to a spot where in which I can *pinch* myself in this  misty euphoric disbelief of ‘I did it!’

I have worked ALL DAY, EVERYDAY, non stop and I mean with ZERO hours spare. The hours SPARE have been taken up with ‘travel time and they have literally been my ONLY spare bits of life. My free time has had to be spent during the moments where i’m sat on a train or in a car, or in the back of a taxi…getting to my next destination of work. ALL of that time i’m on social media…which is kinda these days WORK. I’m probably on day 9 of a long ‘nonstop 24 days’ in a row sail…and this is also whilst i’m SINGLE MUMMYING IT. Lol.

I think sometimes people underestimate how hard I work and how much I’m currently juggling, because it’s done with such panache and a wink. I’m not boasting. *Boast Boast.* I’m just…boasting. 🙂 Basically, what I actually mean before I start being a tool, I’m not a complainer. I hate the complainers. I hate it when people can’t see the positive to a situation, or find a solution to a problem. It makes me think they’re thick. I’ll always tell you that i’m fine…because I’M MORE THAN FINE…I’m happy. Yet, i’m not gonna lie…i’m pretty fucking exhausted. 🙂 I’ll give you that! AND a functioning ‘cocktail in a canner.’

You don’t get what you want by sitting on your touche dreaming of better times. It’s about being able to have a positive DREAM and then have the big glitter balls to stand up and actually GO FOR IT, with kahuna strength and Kung Fu kicks to the rear. (Is that even a thing?) Be around the people who uplift you, inspire you. Don’t get into shit relationships, choose a partner who is ‘amazing’ like you…and don’t settle for anything less. Be single until you find that guy or girl. It makes work easier AND your perfect partner wouldn’t even a tin bit get in the wa of your work…they will simply (Yes Vicky, i’m gonna say it) ‘ENHANCE IT.’ I want a ‘LIFE ENHANCER.’

Lots is currently going on in my world that I don’t even know which parts to keep to myself and which parts to tell you. But when i figure it out, I will. I’m busy, really busy. But i’m not SO busy that i an’t make time for the people or the things that I love. Right now, i’m busy because i’m single and i’m doing what i love. Does that make sense? Stay focused but have fun. Remember to love.

In the last week i’ve literally travelled all over constantly and i’ve been in a few different places, doing a few little blogs and it’s working well.

Like I said I had a few hours of on Saturday evening, which i used for being Mum and sleeping…Lol…and then i was up at the crack of dawn to go blog at La Bottega Milanese…then flew to Doncaster to get to Prosecco Pit Stop…whilst meeting my Mum en route to pick up a child (one of my own, not a random one, as that would be weird and jail time) to do my event with me. Worked, worked worked. Then had a tiny bit of sleep, before waking up at the crack of dawn to do my ‘House of Solo’ magazine shoot in Leeds…followed by a quick trip to Manchester, closely whizzed up by a pit stop in Blackpool. (Which i will tell you all about in my next blog.)

After Blackpool, I then got on the last train to Manchester…worked all the way through my journey until my phone DIED on me.( I used my last 1 percent of battery life on sending a video Snapchat to someone. Lol!) Got to Leeds. (Got hit on by the homeless, who thought i was ‘bouji’ because I was carrying a bag full of pink faux furs. I say ‘bouji’,,,but they actually thought i was a prozzie.) Got back to Pontefract. Woke up at six o clock that morning, got both babies ready, did the nursery and school run and got straight into work…early.

This will continue until I have a free day…My entire rest of the week is filled with work…even the entire weekend….

I need to find balance, as without balance you have madness. What do they say? Without ‘punctuation’ you have nonsense. But I just believe that when you want something bad enough, you have to go for it and give it your all, especially when you’re in a position that is now offering you a much clearer road…

I have my Blackpool blog to come this week AND I want to tell you about being a finalist in the UK Blog Awards. I’ve JUST this second done the ‘Blog Hour’  for the UK Blog Awards, which is the most insightful Q&A on Twitter. LOVED READING YOUR REPLIES. My notifications were going crazy and you were all so interactive. I felt impressed and part of such a great community. Did it ALL whilst typing out THIS BLOG, eating a bowl of chicken, getting Baby Junior back in bed and NOT with a wine. *She weeps.*

But yes, a lot going on….Tomorrow i’m gonna try and concentrate on just keeping life simple and being around the people who I have around me every day…I’m gonna TRY and forget about the unnecessarily ‘back of my mind’ stress and as per usual…I’ll ace it with glitter sticks, have a melt down or drink a lot. *Wiggle…Wink.*

Thank you following my life… I mean, it might be busy and a wee bit stressy, yet if anything, i’m in a really fun chapter…and that alone, I super REALLY GRATEFUL FOR!

A Bit of La Bottega Milanese

ac9

Morning!!! Well it’s almost afternoon! I’ve just strutted into La Bottega Milanese on Bond Court, Leeds.

Image may contain: outdoor Image may contain: coffee and coffee cup

I am currently sailing off the BUSIEST work week ever, for any little Glamour Puss with a ‘Take over the world’ mission lol. I’ve worked through six days straight, (which is waters off a diamantee ducks back for me,) had a few glitzy hours off and then found myself straight back on a morning train, trying to lip gloss, in a white faux fur (which is harder whilst on moving vehicles than a world take over 🙂 ) and i’m now sat, in the coolest little corner of La Bottega Milanese (I call any table that i’m sat at the ‘Power Table’ with my fancy cappuccino and a whole lot to tell you!

(Wait!!! One second…a guy is walking up to the table! )

Oh my GOSH! What amazing service!

‘Hi Chrissie, I’ve just received a message from my boss and we’re hear to take care of you…you’re next drink is on us and…’ 

He even came over with the most delicately placed, beautiful piece of patisserie that pretty much looks like an absolute work of art! Any guy that comes over to my table with a charming smile and with some sort of pudding in his hands wins my heart over and over!

The guy sat opposite me is wondering what’s going on. Hahaha. I’m trying to Snapchat him sneakily, because he’s shying away from Wunna Land.:) He’s having none of it! 🙂

I actually can’t believe how amazing this specialty Espresso Bar is!! Well, I knew it would be amazing, as it won ‘Best Coffee Shop’ at the Lifestyle Awards that I attended back in October. Yet actually being here, sitting amongst it all, writing my blog from ‘The Power Table’ lol and being swirled in an ambiance that feels like absolute ‘Esquire’ Glamour. However it’s amazing because it isn’t at all false…It’s real, innovative with a classic rural feel of luxury. There’s excitement AND peace all around me, happy couples, working ‘Handsomes,’ the ‘Regulars,’ the mid twenty somethings tinkering over Fashion magazines over brunch and stylish young 30 somethings who have popped in for a quick afternoon Prosecco. (YES, THEY DO BOOZE HERE! HURRAH!) I’m lost in a comfy, yet luxurious magic of casual relaxed creativity. Does that make sense?

This is one of my favourite spots to be creative in and the COFFEE is DIVINE! It’s almost as though they have made sure, that they take care of each human that saunters through their glass doors on Bond Court, just off of Park Row, with love, a sincerity. There is special attention to detail. Every tiny bite or freshly ground coffee is delivered to you with edgy yet exceptional style, manners and grace and because of that it makes YOU feel special, like you have a home. Plus, every tiny bite you encounter is perfectly plated, almost like it’s a cheeky treat, a luxury that YOU DESERVE.

I love it!

Everything around me is off white, light grey and with white washed exposed brick walls. I came early has I have to dash off in an hour to my next place of adventure, but now the place is getting busier and that good kind of ‘busy’ where there’s a buzz in the air, that isn’t crazy, just calm. They’ve got this in the BAG! Well done guys! People are working, laughing or writing around me. It’s amazing! And they are playing the BEST MUSIC known to mankind. Stevie Wonder ‘Superstition’ is currently going down. 🙂 Cool place!

Anyway, i’m getting distracted, i’m meant to be telling you about my life! So yes, busiest week ever….It’s stressful but i’m a trooper aren’t I. I just emotionally prep for the stress before hand and get on with it…in heels. You’ll always see me smile. Even if it’s tough. I’ve had tougher. (Accidentally homeless is New York was tough. Lol)

Like I said, i’ve just sailed through the six day work week, i’m blogging from the award winning La Bottega Milanese right now, then i’m back on a train in an hour to get to a Prosecco bar and meet my Mum en route. Tomorrow morning I have a shoot for ‘House of Solo’ magazine. (My good friend Abeiku Arthur who owns the magazine is currently stressing, as it all has to be done for next weekend. Lol.) THEN I am headed to Blackpool via Manchester…for work..and a bit of play. I’ll end up on the last train home to Leeds and then i’ll be back up and rushing to work the next morning.

I need a moment. A moment to feel free! I’m a workaholic and i love it, I do. But i feel a ‘moment’ of freeee is much needed. I’ll get it. Don’t you worry. 🙂 I can make time for everything and I hate it when people can’t.

I’m getting lots of messages in regards to my love life! I haven’t had time to really reply to you all. I’m sorry for that, but i’m getting better at it. It’s my ‘Talk to Strangers’ year, i know. Yet sometimes busy and passion take a hold of you with a madness that time just seems to fly…AND don’t forget i’m nurturing Ruby and Junior at the same time. I have a lot of help, yes…but they’re my world. My priority. Everything i’m doing is for them. Don’t get it twisted.

I still single…yes. I don’t think that really changes in hours does it? Soo many messages about it. Lol. I didn’t get to reply to ‘London Business Man’ due to my schedule…Yet i’m sure that when i’m in London, i’ll be able to meet up for a friendly cocktail…or five. I like catch ups. (ON YOU! Lol.)

I will say that I have my eye on someone right now. But just my little Eye of the Orient upon him. He’ll have no clue and wouldn’t really be bothered. I kinda just watch from a far and get on with life. Lol. What? Leave me alone I know, it’s creepy. 🙂 We all do it! Hahaha!But I’m a chick and well even though i’m ballsy…I’m shyer when it comes to matters of the heart. I get shy. Gentlemen should always play the first move. Hahaha. That way i don’t have to…:)

The coffee bar is filling up now. (Nice link away…:) ) An array of stylish young Leeds adults, families and more laptop workers have tinkered in.

I’ve noticed as i’m looking around now, that every human in this place is beaming. They all have a smile on their face and that makes me happy. It makes me feel as though i’m surrounded by this energy that is positive and fulfilling.

(Wait, i’m off to order another drink. I’m gonna end up wired.)

I now have the most beautiful Hot Chocolate ever.

The Staff are great here as I can just go up to the counter and say,

‘I just want something glammy?’

The response…

‘The Glammy Button has been officially pressed Miss Wunna…’

Image may contain: 1 person, standing and indoor

AS if!! This place is what dreams are made of!!

I watched the guy make my drink…and it was almost like a creative work of art was taking place.

Image may contain: one or more people, people standing, kitchen, food and indoor

He did say, that I was making him feel moderately ‘under pressure’ lol…so i kinda stop glaring at him like he was in a FISH BOWL and giggled away. He asked me if I enjoyed my little bit of patisserie and did you know that EVERY SINGLE dessert nibble has actually been ordered FROM ITALY. I know! How wonderful. We all know that if anyone appreciates a bit of luxury it’s me. AND to top it all off, everything that ISN’T flown in from Italy is made in YORKSHIRE. That’s amazing!!!! TEAM NORTH! AND the thing that’s even better is that this information was casually and charmingly delivered to me, as my drink was being made! FANTASTIC MARKETING. You learn as you wait. 🙂

My phones quit working now…so i’ve got all grumpy. Haha. I watched the Steven Bartlett Vlog last night, as I do every night Lol. I even rewatch the ones that I have seen a hundred times. 🙂 I hope you all get really into them… as to me, he is the most interesting human (aside from myself ofcourse 🙂 ) going.

Right, I need to head off…

I’ve got a train to catch…

La Bottega Milanese…You are WUNNAFUL! 🙂

Girls in Business, Fun & Mr.Rights….

DSC_01121-300x201

Just one of those good old, fun days, where in which you work so hard, yet play hard with it, that laughter, sass and good times simply fill the air like magic.

Today was magic!

And like i’ve always said, we kinda have to hold on to those moments of happiness, because as humans they mean so much to us. It’s those euphoric moments of ‘life is great’ that play over like a happy, slow motion, glitter flurry, that we very rarely get to experience in our lives. Those moments are like gold dust that slips through your fingers. You have to remember to open your arms and embrace the good times in work, life, love and family….whenever you experience ‘magic.’

…Then i walked into a little corner room filled with happy people, sat on cushioned window sills and comfy seats that didn’t swivel. As I did, ‘Styley B’who looked like a ‘Ken Doll’ had lifted up a chair, that was about to hit a skirting board *boingy* thing.  The leg of the chair grazed it and as I tottered in, like a Glamour Puss Extraordinaire, the *boingy* thing had been struck, making it sound like I had let off the BIGGEST, most SATISFYING *FART* in the entire Universe, on entry. Hahahah! WHAT IS LIFE! THIS IS WHY I’M SINGLE!

Everyone just pissed themselves laughing and I stood there looking a *happy* sort of puzzled and moderately concerned because I didn’t actually know whether that *sound* had come out of Me or not??? HAHAHA.

If it did, I was going to style it out! 🙂

And this was AFTER I had been asked about having my children and the ‘Paradigm’ of it all??? I didn’t know what to say and my mouth just opened as words fell out… BUT THESE WORDS….

‘Well I don’t really know?? They weren’t really planned. They kinda just happened in hotel rooms after vodka. 🙂 🙂 But now i have them…Yeah….It’s great, I couldn’t imagine my life without them!’ LOL.

WHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAT!

‘Fairytale Blond’ did a jaw dropping giggle and comforted me through the pain as I sat next to her on a black and white striped, window sill cushion.

Then ‘Hot Sarah’ who once dreamt that she gave birth to a roast chicken, talked to me about a Chinese New year calendar, that I wanted her to deliver to me via the fine art of contemporary dance OR in Chinese.

‘You’re not even Chinese Chrissie!’

‘Noooooo. No words. Let your body do the talking!’ Lol.

‘Hot Sarah’ has decided that for her ‘New Year, New Her’ she’s going to dye her hair brown and wear pretend glasses, so she looks older and smarter. Haha. This is because someone said she looked 19 when she’s in her late twenties. I think?

As she said this, to my left I heard ‘Double B’ (My other chick comrade) saying,

‘I’M GOING TO CRY INTO MY CUP AND DRINK MY OWN TEARS!’

HAHAHAHA….I Literally wet myself laughing. WHAT IS THIS TEAM????? How do I even know these people! ?! They’re AWESOME! It’s nuts wrapped in bonkers. I spend over 300 days of my year with them! No wonder i’m a tool. They’ve rubbed off on me.

‘Does anyone have a pen…?’

‘No.’

‘Does anyone have pain killers?’

EVERYONE! (Lol.)

You’d THINK headed into important meetings WE’D HAVE PENS.

‘Double B’ had a FUCKING SATSUMA. 🙂

‘If i eat this, will you peel it for me Chrissie?’ 

‘You’re 21 years old! You can peel you’re OWN fucking Satsuma!’

‘I’ve just never learnt how!’

‘Dickhead.’

All jokes aside…WE SMASHED TODAY. 🙂 So busy! So much fun! Loads of hard work! Totally NAILED IT!

When girls do business WELL…We are SO SEXY! 🙂

You know, I always think that you really need a good group of friends that you seem to accidentally spend a lot of of your time with, due to work. They keep the passion in you alive. It’s that mixture of energies, that playfully tinker alongside each other, that helps your own personality grow.

In fact it kinda makes you a better girlfriend or boyfriend. It makes dating and your people skills MUCH easier when you have a good group of friends because you firstly learn how to meander with & around different personalities and secondly you have support.

I mean we all work hard together, we go through ups, downs, boyfriends, girlfriends, Snapchat filters and all sorts. 🙂 But we tell each other everything. But, I reckon the people who have a decent bundle of work buddies, who they spend a lot of time with….make better partners and better ‘other halves.’

We understand what ‘busy’ is. We’re too busy to be naggy and during our free time, we know how to unwind and have a GREAT TIME with whoever we’ve chosen to date!

Today on Twitter I was asked if I ‘had time to fall in love?’

I don’t want you to think that i’m some cold hearted ‘no love for me, too busy‘ chick. I’m not that at all. I’m warm. I’m bubbly. I love, love and like I said on Twitter, I DO HAVE TIME to fall in love and I also do hope to fall in love….You need love to iron out the stressy crinkles you go through with work. You need that one person you trust and team up with. That person you build an empire with. I completely believe that!

And YES, i’m going solo right now, but because I don’t want to ‘just settle…’ I’ve dated a lot of people who i’ve ‘just settled’ with…and it just wasn’t right, as we didn’t have the same passion for work, life or each other….really. We didn’t see the world through the same eyes, or even enjoy the same things.

When a man has found the right partner, he feels on top of the world, like he can conquer anything. He gains the heart of a lion. You can even see it in him!  When a women achieves and feels cherished, she owns this glow of utter power and love, with a warmth and strength that can rule the entire world. You can feel it when she’s near you.

That’s what i’m waiting for….

And like i’ve said EVERY SINGLE DAY, THIS YEAR, SO FAR….

I’m not the slightest bit worried..

He’ll find me. 😉 He’s close…

 

 

 

 

 

Busy Days, Inboxes & Video Snapchats

ac33

I’ve had a busy one! Today felt REAL. It felt ‘back to normal.’ It kinda of *zooshed* by.  In fact, the ‘busy’ sprung out of nowhere with a *B’BOOM* and those of you who have followed this blog and entangled your way into my mind, KNOW that I adore a bit of ‘busy,’ I thrive off it and *can can* kick it, like a some kind of ‘Boss’ Queen. I’m excited by the bustle of busy because it puts your worth and talents to use.

YET, there was definitely a moment where in which I was ‘face to face’staring at a ‘Fairytale Blond,’ both of us with a busy phone attached to our ears, having a busy conversation, with other busy people and as every other phone, in what seemed like ALL of the busy land, began to ring non stop! It was crazy! We needed octopus arms, gin, an army or…gin. It was fun…and did I say…busy? 🙂

Good day! Flew by!

But GOD! I should’ve shut my kitty mouth about guys and dating last night on the blog, shouldn’t I! Lol. I’m not sure what happened exactly? But my inbox sizzled up and became full of ‘Let’s go out’s’ and ‘Meet me’s!’ I can’t meet EVERYONE! I didn’t mean I was going on dates with every single stranger with a laptop or iphone thumbs! Lol.

I’m always one to think that  life dances people into your path, who you’re meant to meet. You actually build a rapport together without you knowing and that rapport develops. I don’t find it easy just to meet people I don’t know in REAL life, who have only *typed* at me, unless i’m REALLY into them, OR i’ve really gotten to know them. That’s why it’s better for you to run into me in person, befriend me or send me a video, or a snapchat. Doesn’t that sound so unromantic. Lol. But it’s a new world, a new century, so i might as well just go with it.

PLUS, now that my schedule has busied up (and you can also add babies into this equation) i’m noticing that i’m quite picky because in the time that I have free, I want to make sure i’ve spent it with someone GREAT, if i’m going to. Someone who’s a lot of fun. Or someone’s who’s really inspiring. Or someone who’s hilarious or so interesting i’m hooked. I’m really picky by nature anyway when it comes to love..Some may say ‘shallow.’ 🙂 Shut up ‘Firmmonell! But i’m not fussy ‘picky.’ I’m just ‘know what I want’ picky and that’s really different, as i’m not high maintenance AT ALL. I’m just in such a good place emotionally and in life in general right now, that i’m willing to hold out for someone who’s really right for me. And i’m sure that’s what you all want to for yourselves.

I mean GOD, I already had some sweet guy blow it because he tried to be what he THOUGHT I wanted him to be, instead of just himself. Why do we do that? I’ve done it in the past. I’m guilty as charged. So, i’m not at all ‘finger pointing.’ I’m just glad I don’t do it now. But i understand it completely.

Now listen boys! Rules of dating! If you actually like a girl, a lady…a GLAMOUR PUSS…and you want her to take your advances seriously (and this guy did, as even though I never really replied to him….Every day, he would ask to meet me, or send me a sweet picture of himself with love hearts and ‘Good Mornings’ and stuff of that nature. Never rude. Always normal. Seemingly kind.)

Tonight….he messed up.

This is what you never say to me,

‘Can we be fuck buddies?’ 

After I politely responded with a ‘NO,’ he didn’t then decide to use his brain. He didn’t think to save it with a humour or flattery or anything! He panicked and instead he went with,

‘What? Well it’s not like I want to marry you anything?’

(ALL THE WORST THINGS YOU CAN SAY TO A GIRL. Haha!)

By now, in my head, he’s scribbled himself out of Wunna Land by accident. LOL. So i thought I’d make it worse, because i’m kind 🙂 ….and say,

‘Shame, as i’d be looking for someone who would want to marry me rather than just bone me.’

(Because I know he didn’t mean it… He’s sweet really, but just said all the wrong things.)

His reply…

‘Make up your mind! What do you want? I’m trying to be this and i’m trying to be that and…’

AND THAT IS WHERE IT ALL GOES WRONG!

Y’see, you shouldn’t have to try and change who you are to meander around what you THINK a person would like, because if you don’t actually know that girl or guy personally, then assuming how they want you to BE may not be the best approach.

Get to know them properly, I mean, don’t be scared to get to know them properly. Go for it. And if they don’t want to get to know you, it’s their loss! You tried. And boy’s yes, you need to be forward, yet you need to be gentlemen.

Go for it! But don’t balls it up!!

Ten minutes later, I was laid ontop of my bed after work, in my black and white pinstriped work shirt, watching Steven Bartlett’s ‘New Year in Singapore’ Vlog, like I do every evening to unwind. I find it comforting and easy to watch. (I guess, it’s just the same as those of you who find yourself popping into Wunna land for a casual blog read.) I just find Bartlett exceedingly interesting. He’s really talented.

Anyway, I’d been waiting for his next Vlog for ages. I was on Snapchat faffing around with the filters. Then BOOM just like that, his new Vlog had been uploaded and I was so happy when it finally posted and even happier when he uttered this sentence on Snapchat…

‘Send me a snap of you watching my Vlog and i will reply… with a video.’ 

WHAT!!!!???!!! AMAZING! Sent a snap in a second. LOL. (I’m ridiculous, I know. But I can’t hep it. I’m a huge Bartlett Fan.)

Got my *Video Snap* from him straight away.

He was there in his hat. He thanked me, had Pablo the puppy on his knee, who was doing some cute ‘stretchy chin thing,‘ on a desk that was infront of them.

Then I heard, what I thought was music, but it was his computer? And with a glint in his eye and a dash of excitement he *popped up* with a fun…

‘My Coachella tickets are ready!!!’

And that was my Bartlett video snap!

I loved it. How fun! Good idea right! I’ll have to steal it!

I sent him a ‘thank you’ video snap back.

But it was ace because I loved  actually peeking into a tiny bit of his ‘real life’ world. It was also great because it sort of helped me understand how people may feel, when they actually get to peek into Wunna land.

Then just as I sat up and reached for my wine…my Whatsapp *notified’ my attention.

It was a message from ‘London Business Man…’ Uncanny timing, after the brief mention on yesterday’s blog. I like good timing…and good old male bravery.

All it read was,

‘So when are we catching up. xxx’ 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bukaki, Life & Dating

254457_168170223247857_1887163_a

‘A what?’ 

‘Bukaki..’

This is how my day began!

Infact, it’s probably why I’m single, as I am totally not up with all the porn lingo that the young 20 somethings are sizzling out with!?!

Did YOU know what ‘Bukaki’ was? Or am I just frigid? (Getting a flashback of when Andrew Thomas dumped me in Chemistry, in the middle of a private boarding school for being frigid via the fine art of a scrunched up ‘pass around the class’ note. Lol.)

Anyway, there’s me, thinking I was some Hollywood, ageing sex symbol, who was British Besties with Paris Hilton for the telly,  some Goddess of a chick who was dashed in all kinds of ‘Ooh laa!’ (Totally waited in a Greggs queue, in Pontefract, for a sausage roll at 8.32am this morning, like my life depended on it. Yes. That’s how glamourous I got! You better call Ronaldo and tell him you’ve found him a wife.)

BUT I had NO CLUE what ‘Bukaki’ was and this is how it was explained to me…

‘It’s when a bunch of boys stand around a girl and all *&*!$£”* off around her until one of them cums. The first one to cum IN HER FACE and hit the target WINS!’ 

WHAT THE ABSOLUTE……!!!!! Lol. That’s how 21 year old ‘Double B’ explained it to me.

I wasn’t the only chick to be alarmed, as ‘Fairytale Blond’ frowned and pretended her beautiful ears did not hear such evil. Haha. The others either *winced* or swore a little. I began to look puzzled, as I do enjoy knowledge and do also try to be understanding when it comes to matters of ‘play…’ Yet ‘Firmmonell’ turned around, looked her female soldiers in the eye and said…

‘What? It’s just a game!’

JUST A FUCKING GAME!  Hahaha! This isn’t a round of ‘Guess Who’…well maybe? 🙂 What happened to romance??? (She has a ‘Sex Step.’)

I mean, it must be weird being knelt there on your knees, in the middle of someones living room, with an odd male semi circle of knobbly knees surrounding you…as you kinda wait around until ‘SPLAT’ you’re a target! Hahaha. Who does that???? HAHAHAHAHA.

AND to make it worse it ORIGINATES from the Orient! (My own KIND!) I mean, yes it was meant as some form of torture and punishment, but porn has turned it into some kind of Wednesday night ‘sex game.’ This is like the conversation I had with Lisa Appleton in a giant birdcage at Menagerie last month…’PORN RUINS EVERYTHING.’ It’s NOT real. No chick I know, would enjoy ‘playing’ Bukaki’ after tea. Lol. Play Poker! I mean yeah, there’s still a lot of sitting around for ages, but at least you won’t have to make deliberate ‘ooh ‘ faces on demand and pretend that you’re having a GREAT TIME! Hahaha! (I shouldn’t find this funny, it’s disgraceful. 🙂 )

Up until this point, I had thought my Facebook inbox was terrifying. Yet, Bukaki has made it look ‘Disney.’

In fact, talking about my inbox, i’m giving it a bad wrap because it has actually completely cleaned it’s merry act up. Bizarrely and quite fortunately it has *bloomed* and gone from being a series of men, attempting to *woo* me via genitalia, before they even thought to just say ‘Hi,’ TO NOW being an inbox filled with messages from absolute gentlemen who simply want to politely compliment me. It’s lovely! My inbox has grown up and therefore that must mean I have! I feel quite proud! Lol. *You can applaud here.*

But yes, other than that, I’ve had a busy day! We as a nation have officially been *drop kicked* back to reality and even though I’ve MISSED WORK like crazy, it seems that after you’ve had a bit of a break, bucket loads of Prosecco and all this quality time with your loved ones, it’s really hard to adjust back to ‘work mode,’ isn’t it! Lol. However, it’s only difficult initially, as after Day 1…you kinda get over yourself and smash it. Humps don’t last forever!

I will say that getting loads of messages right now from people congratulating me in regards to the UK Blog Awards (there’s more to come on that in the next blog…YES…I made the final 🙂 🙂 🙂 ) and I’m also getting asked about my love life….A LOT!

I don’t remember saying that I was going to go on more dates this year? But GOSH give me some time, we’re only on DAY 3 of 2017. Hahaha! You all got so excited with the Wunna Land swirl of break ups, make ups, Spanish Doctors, London Business Men, Sexy PE Teachers and ‘Eton Messes’ of last year, that you’re twiddling your thumbs and trying to frisbee me into Cupid. I’m EXHAUSTED! And now I think about it all and reflect, I kinda sold myself a bit short at times, during last year with men. I’m quite loving and giving when it comes to the ‘love bug.’ I’m thoughtful. I’m fun, but i’m gentle. I was NEVER in LOVE last year by any means and never in a relationship. But i do quite happily fall in love with people all the time. I’m not emotionally restricted.

Yeah, the guys I met last year we’re great (as friends) yet if i’m being honest, they didn’t really respect or treat me as well as they maybe could’ve of. Of course and as always a couple of those gents are now trying to ask me out again. However, now that i’ve sat back and reflected upon it all (and now that i’m doing well and work is going great 😉 ) I kinda just see them as distant mates.

However, don’t get it twisted…Cupid and I are NOT MATES! His aim is shit. I’m a Glamour puss. I can most certainly fire a flirty, glitter arrow at a ‘Handsome’ better than some dude in a nappy. I’m like a stubborn SHOT PUT in the game of love. You TRY and throw me anywhere against my will….and you’ll put your own back out.

Right now my focus is on career…..and I think i’d kinda like to date a guy who’s focus is on his career also. I want to date someone who’s my best friend, someone I’m madly in love with, yet someone who I can ’empire build’ with. Someone i’m going in the same direction as. To me…that’s the sexiest thing EVER and surely it’s not too much to ask? I just wish that guys of that manner weren’t too shy to approach me, as sometimes they can be really bold in the career department and somewhat less brave when it comes to ‘The Ladies’ and trying to form actual loving relationships.

However, for the time being, i’m just gonna concentrate on work because i’m ever so happy with everything right now. I’m feeling lucky I’ve had this AMAZING start to the year…and like I always say to you…I’m not worried….He’ll find me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My New Years Resolutions….

319753_348091485255729_1604099843_n

Gosh! All this time off is making me go bonkers. It’s hilarious! I’m tottering around pestering and annoying innocent folk, just so my brain has something to do. Hahah! I’m like the kid that gets kicked out of glitter class (Wait? Hold up! I’d never get kicked out of glitter class? What the actual fuck IS glitter class? Lol Whatever it is? I wouldn’t get  kicked out of it.) But you get the picture, my system needs to get back to work mode in order to feel satisfied. I’m really excited because i’m about to go into a *juggle,* which is when you have lots to conquer all at once. It’s challenging, it’s fun.  Yet, right now all i’m doing is thinking and planning it all (which actually makes me panic as you can ponder things far too much) and being a FIRE sign, all the *pondering* gets boring after a while, when you have to wait to move forward. I’m an action girl…and therefore now, because i’m impatient…you are receiving a rant. Lol.

January always goes really fast! I don’t mean the ‘waiting for a pay day’ part, as I realize that most have spazzed their fine earned pences on cocktails. Yipppeee! Yet, when you have goals that you’re trying to fit in, in the first month, it’s always hard, as it *zoom* by without you consent and you have to double up in Feb.

I slept last night. I never can sleep, so that’s a good thing. But weirdly, I watched Chloe Khan’s snippets (lots of naked bits, boobie bits and sex bits) from her time in the Celebrity Big Brother House. Now, i don’t know whether she did that on purpose to gain ‘attention?’ If she did, well done, it worked and it took some fucking balls. It made her newsworthy. So the result, good or bad, was an attention winner. OR if she’s just like that as a human? Then I had a wine and wasn’t bothered anymore and fell asleep. It kinda made me learn that it’s what you do AFTER the snippets of attention have occurred that set task of longevity. My mind and soul must’ve been content with that knowledge and just conked out peacefully.

How was your New Year! I actually ditched my Slutty Sailor Girl outfit and Cockpit Pilot sexy wear, to simply stay home, with my babies. To the ‘Party Goers’ (and i am one to indulge in a good time, if it’s done right and in some form of luxury lol) that may sound dull. But to ME, it was heaven sent, peaceful, loving and bubbled my sail into 2017 with love. Their faces alone we’re adorable.

I will go on to tell you that LOVE MATTERS. It’s what makes you strong. Gives you a purpose. I’m a single mum, so the LOVE that I have for my children power me forward. Nothing compares to that! I’m ambitious, so the LOVE that I have for my ‘dream come true’ job and work radiates from my kitty soul like fire. The LOVE that I have for my parents, the people that gave me a foundation to grow, is deep rooted and dashed with the most sincere respect. The love that I have for having such hilarious friends, keeps my system light, filled with laughter and keeps me being a functioning alcoholic. Lol. It’s a fun love, as you need your ‘soldiers’ right by your side. They’re the people you tell everything to without *censor.*

We all know that i’m SINGLE and i’ve been single by choice because I just haven’t been able to find the correct male human to partner up with. Hahaha! Yes, i’ve been on dates, as usual, as they’ve come, and learnt a lot. Yet, i haven’t had that ‘chemistry’ that is essential to the way i think, move, or see the future…swing by me. Where i cn just be me and the get it! All great guys. All phenomenal people. But just not right for me. And i mean that both ways. As, I am also just not right for them. (Even if some of them haven’t seen that yet. 🙂 )

I get loads of messages from guys, as any girl would on social media, who may tickle anyones fancy, who read my blog and say that I haven’t have such a hardcore *tick list.* There isn’t a *tick list.* I just know what i like, need and want in another human being, that is so much more than a simple list, as it’ll be something i feel, when i see them and meet them. (HAHAHAHAH….That makes me sound pervy!) Just because i’m not willing to ‘just settle’ for ‘a bit right’ doesn’t mean i’m being tight. It just means that i’m doing what’s right for ME…and you can’t change that, because it’s working for me and i’m quite toolish and strong headed. HOWEVER, if YOU WERE Mr.Right, you wouldn’t want to change that would you? 🙂 As firstly, you’d be IT and secondly, trying to change a partner means you’re not getting it. You’re not accepting them for who they are with love and support. Nonetheless, I’m always quite willing to go on dates! Well…some dates. Lol. I LOVE meeting people.

I’ve gone on a rant haven’t I!

New Years Resolutions! What’s Yours?

I never usually make them, as I’m not good at confining myself to rules that i make personally. The little rules that I make for myself. If i find that i’m only answerable to myself, then there’s no hope, as I can handle Me telling myself off. Lol. I just end up hitting the glitzy *fuck it* button and having fun. (When i say ‘fun’ I simply mean doing the things that I love.) But if someone else gives me rules, I seem to be pretty obedient. It’s weird. Maybe because i feel more responsible and i’m not in the business of letting people down by nature. It makes me feel awkward.

But here they are anyway..

Wunna’s New Year’s Resolutions.

. EVERY DAY THIS YEAR do something proactive big or small that will help me get closer to my big goal. Work harder at it, basically.

. 20 minutes exercise every day. (I’m shit at going to gym, or signing up to groups, so it won’t be that. So it’ll just be some ‘show up to whenever’ class, or some run or something? I reckon i’ll be into Pilates. Lol

.EVERY DAY (because Karma’s ace) do a good deed for someone. Doesn’t have to be massive, as it’s the little things in life that make a difference. Hopefully it’ll come back on me threefold. If not, i’m not doing it again next year! HAHAHA. EVIL!

That’s it! As everything else in my life i do well. 🙂

I need a massage and to get my nails done today.

I’m back to work tomorrow. The sun is shining. The babies and my Mum and I are all off to The Frenchgate centre in Doncaster.

I’m excited to tell you about the stuff that I have going on in 2017. There will be a blog about it all. I’ll be telling you where i’m going, why I’m going and when as I go along also.

Do remember that you are able to cross life paths with me at ANY SINGLE POINT. Maybe life will just naturally guide you my way. But if not…purposely *bump* into Wunna land, have a good time with me and find yourself in this blog the next day! *The 2017 cast 😉 ) But this year, chrissiewunna.com will be becoming more interactive, as we all do life together.  I’m going to be focusing a lot on getting another rung up that success ladder…so bare with me.

Like i said there’s a plan, yet in life you never quite know what’s going to happen, do you? But everything i have ‘intended’ sounds pretty good. Lol.

Feel Free to bob on any of my social media profiles and share your New Years Resolutions with me.

My Blog, Bartlett & The New Year

Image may contain: 1 person

So, we did it! We championed an entire 2016! Some of you have had a shit year! Some of you have had a great year! I guess it depends on how you look at things? But nonetheless, you survived it, lived it, loved and hopefully shimmied a bit closer to your ‘dreams come true.’

I’ve had a massive year of change. If i go back two years ago, 2014 was probably the worst year of my life that I had to prettily surf with a wink and a round of deep breaths. I couldn’t wait for it to be over, as if anything went wrong that year, it did. My work life, my love life, my home life…it all went to pot…and I could’ve taken that time and drowned myself in a rummy pity party (lol,) yet I didn’t, it made me strong, I laughed it off and I sort of ‘rose from the ashes’ as they say, ten times more dynamic.

Then in 2015, after being thrown into and spat out of an emotional rollercoaster, without my consent or being strapped in, I was determined to play it safe and live a more mundane ‘un..glittery’ existence, that wasn’t me. I dated a normal boring boy, with no goals, ambition, no adventure, or life experience. I looked after him…and i got bored quickly. Yet it was great because at the same time as him draining the ‘ooh laa’ out of me, as his insecurity had sort of got in the way of me furthering myself with my career, it helped me quickly realise what i actually wanted, what my purpose was and that I was ready. So i changed my world around, got happy, got rid of boy and again became 10 times more mighty. bI was on the right path, as i had bored myself SO silly, that i yearned for excitement and to make my mark. (Work was always good.)

Everything changed in 2016 and fast, as i was no longer hanging about. I stayed loyal to my goals, what i wanted, who i wanted to be and became productive. Work changed Lifestyle changed. Guys changed. I stayed firmly single all year. Everything was new, fresh and exciting. I had shimmied up that ladder a little bit more and then in October, it all changed again, as i made a little decision to go to The Leeds Lifestyle Awards. From that point on weirdly, the Wunna magic was ignited…and opportunity just seemed to keep domino falling infront of me. Instead of shying away, I took the up….(I still kept making weird boy decisions through the year)…But i finally pulled myself together, turned the focus away from that and CONCENTRATED on what I wanted, needed and what would make me happy. (Work was always good.)

Fresh opportunities came a tapping…and the blog set fire and went WILD. It had been read all over the world on every continent anyway, yet it SHOT OUT OF GLITTER CANON AND IT GOT CRAZY.

Everything changed and I was going from place to place, doing life, blogging about it and turning the ‘Chrissie Wunna’ name, into a brand… by accident. (Even though I kinda knew what i was doing. 😉 ) Within weeks, I was being labelled the ‘Real Life, Carrie Bradshaw,’ an inspiration, a Cyberlebrity, I was getting invited to some of the top new openings, events and places..for the largest companies, brands, be they restaurants, clubs, fashion labels…everything and just because they wanted to appear on this page! I became Verified on Twitter and everyone seemed to be listening to what i was saying. Meetings sort of confetti showered upon me and big agents, infact all sorts came a tapping at my kitten door, in order to try and represent me. (I didn’t go with any of them, as I didn’t feel the ‘fit’ was right. The ‘fit’ matters. Who you work alongside or trust to give your ‘brand’ to, collaborate with, or build an empire with…matters. It’s like dating, you wouldn’t just settle because you have nothing going on, if you don’t have to.)

Important people were tuning into my blog, more and more followers were peeking into Wunna land and people who I’M personally inspired by started to follow me or take a moment of their time to actually click on Chrissiewunna.com and read a blog. (AS IF!) I mean, to ME that was simply such a personal pinnacle. It made my eyes smile, filled my soul with gratitude and made me feel of ‘worth.’

All of this was going on…as I was going to work every single day, doing my day job, being a single Mum, loving all of that and getting on with life, happily. I mean, I work alongside the best people. I also have such a supportive family, that in that area, i cannot at all go wrong.

Towards the end of the year things busied up…and as I was working through the day, being a Mum after work and then working through the evening at events, with the help of my Mum and the Baby Daddies…more stuff changed, I made more connections, people wanted to help me and I began (which is where I am now) stamping my mark down that little harder. I mean GOSH, the absolutely FABULOUS time that I had at Gino D’Acampo’s new restaurant in Leeds, that stepped up my game a little. (I go back in January after the first successful visit. 🙂 I can’t wait!) But yes, I was being asked to just show up at venues and simply BLOG from them. I KNOW!!! WITH BOOZE!!! It’s a crazy kind of wonderful that is so humbling that I almost have to pinch myself to believe it. I’ve shimmied at every Christmas celebrity event. I blogged my version of them all. MY birthday with Lisa Appleton ended up all over the national press (because of Lisa’s Bum Lol,) and I started to get *papped* at places and then I got nominated for the UK Blog Awards…and in a week, i’ll find out if i made the shortlist. (I even made the UK Blog Awards Trend!! AS IF!!)

During this whole entire time, my sanctuary and my grounding force was always my work colleagues, my children and my moments alone of reflection away from the madness. (Like I went back to the office today and ‘The Mighty’ said that my blog reads like i’m a frilly Bimbo type, who’s all ‘wishy washy cocktails,’ when really i’m quite sensible, ambitious and together. It was her last day today at work for a while, as she is off to birth a human. We’ll miss her.)

BUT also towards the end of the year I really got into watching these truly inspiring Vlogs by Steven Bartlett, who created the whole ‘Social Chain’ company. Every night I watched one, (and I still do) to learn, to calm my mind in the evenings as I laid in bed and to feel empowered before I went to sleep.

I actually found his Vlog accidentally via ‘Eton Mess’ who I had stopped talking to, not because of any problems, as we’re still friends, but just because that’s what ‘life’ wanted. Anyway, he’d posted one of Bartlett’s Vlogs on his Facebook Wall, about ‘Negative People,’ and after watching it, I then posted one of his other Vlogs on MY OWN Facebook wall.

From that point on like he was some Life Wizard, I was hooked, because i felt so inspired, I could relate to everything he was saying…PLUS, there was just something about him…there is…isn’t there…There’s just something about that guy…

When I appeared at Gino’s for lunch (best place ever) doing the Restuarant blog with ‘House of Solo’ I used my last 1 percent of battery life, watching a Bartlett Vlog at the Prosecco bar. YES, during my own actual appearance. Lol. The next day when i wrote my blog and posted it everywhere like I do and I tagged Steven Bartlett into my Twitter Post. I didn’t think he’d read it/skim it, or care to be honest. But i tagged him in it anyway…and he read it..He even Tweeted me back thanking me for the mention in the blog and then thanked me for watching and supporting HIS Vlogs. AS IF!!! It literally made me BEAM! I would never have thought that that would’ve happened, but it did and it made me happy because I had emailed Social Chain a week and a half before and I hadn’t recieved a response.

So, I guess i’m saying that this year has been AMAZING and i hope yours has too! If it hasn’t, look forward or create better times. For me, it’s been the year where in which I rebooted, refound my passion, became productive and did what I loved. It’s been the year where appropriate or magical changes have been made in order to place all the right elements in their correct places for the next step. I don’t know whether I’VE done that or ‘The Gods’ have thrown me a bone. Lol.

What I did want to say was THANK YOU, as even though this is the diary of MY life, if it wasn’t for YOU, tuning in… when you can.. or when you care and returning back to ‘Wunna Land’ afterward, it really wouldn’t be where it’s at today.

I mean GOD, when it first started a decade ago in Hollywood and only 8 people read it a month….I didn’t have internet access (and the blog was still on Myspace) so I had to walk to The Beverly Center, in West Hollywood every day and write my blog from one of the display demo desktops at the Apple Mac store. Lol. They didn’t even stop me. I must’ve looked like a weirdo. I even did it at the Apple Stores in New York and in every hotel that provided free internet services…all over America. Lol. (People didn’t want me to blog from their venue then. 🙂 Ten years on…they’re begging me too.)

I remember being excited because 74 people had read my blog in ONE DAY. 🙂 Now, like I always tell you, tens and TENS OF THOUSANDS OF YOU *click* into Wunna Land, all over the world…On every single continent….In over 200 different countries…..and its translated into 40 different languages a day. (Haha…You know the spiel.)

But thank YOU for reading and following my life. It’s just my version of it and I hope yours is going just as well or at least the way you wish it to!

Thank you to everyone who has been a real life part of this year. I always say that my blog is like a written word, reality show, where real people, *pop* out of nowhere and become part of it all, as their real life path crosses with mine. If it was a written word, reality show, then I will honestly tell you that I HAVE NEVER EVER HAD A BETTER CAST, THAN THE CAST OF THIS YEAR!! Lol. THANK YOU. You rocked! (Even the ones that put me through shit. Lol.)

I don’t know what my 2017 has in store…I’ve read loads of tweets by others who all have ‘so many great things happening in 2017.’ 

I honestly have no clue what’s a coming? I just know that whatever life throws at me…I’m ready for it and i’m armed with a *wink.*

Hopefully i’ll BOSS IT and not drink too much gin.

I’ll leave you with this… (This was the first Steven Bartlett Vlog that I found posted on someone else’s Facebook wall…)

Happy 2017. Sail Well!

SENDING YOU ALL MY LOVE.

FUCKING HAPPY NEW YEAR!
