Eye Tests, Frillies, Communication & No Bouncing

I’m feeling amazing today. No real reason why? I just feel AMAZING. And it’s always the best kinda ‘AMAZING,’ when you have no real reason to be happy…yet you just are. It rocks. I’m beaming. I kitten rolled out of the ‘right side of the bed,’ I guess? Maybe it’s the weather? Nah! I don’t even have wine? It must just be life. However, regardless, who needs a flipping reason. When you just feel great, you just feel great and I’ll put that in my frillies and………..wait…

(I don’t know what I was going to say there…? But see how smart I am now…I felt my fingers type ‘frillies’ and disciplined them…momentarily.) 

GOD! FEELING AMAZING AND SMART TODAY! There are trophies for that i’m sure!!

To be honest, It could’ve gone the other way! (What a surprise.) AS, I could’ve felt really disappointed at around 9am. HOWEVER, because I was already prepared and because i actually grew up a bit…;) I wasn’t. I took life on the chin and weirdly felt great, in fact supportive…and just ‘37 year old’ got it.

‘See! I’m not as much as a douche as you thought.’

You always think you have it hard, until to realize that others may have it a little harder. And It’s when you grow to understand people….or a person in particular…is when you become strong. You become free. That’s why I swear that communication is KEY.

I grew up today…and it rocked.

(There’s this really strange lady, in a long pink coat and a feathery fascinator on her head, galloping around, by racing horses, ‘hooting and hollering’ like she’s…well fucking nuts, Lol. She’s right in front of my eyes, on a tv screen. The zaniest combo. I mean she looks so posh, yet galloping so nuttily. She definitely can’t have had babies and just bred horses instead, because women who have had babies DO NOT GALLOP, nor do we BOUNCE ON THINGS. I had this conversation at a child’s birthday party on Sunday.)

ME: ‘I don’t trampoline or bounce on things. Anything could fall out of me.’

Other Mum: ‘Thank God you said that, cos I draw the line at bouncing…’

Junior: ‘Mum, can you get me another fish finger…’

(Literally, Elvis, your lost car keys..ANYTHING could fall out of me, if HUMANS HAVE….TWICE. I don’t bounce….on much. ;))

I went to Specsavers today for my 2 year eye test. I love and hate eye tests, yet today it was a breeze. There’s something so comforting and sexy about dark dark rooms, spits of light, whilst your half blind and the joy of cosiness, isn’t there.

The usual two bits I don’t like…is the part where they *puff* fast air into your eye balls. That parts shit. I hate that. AND when the poor optician has to get really REALLY close to your face with his torch, to shine his light in your eyes.

Today…I aced it. I loved it. I’m in a good mood remember. AND he loved that I had a blog. My eyes are dandy! My Optician is a gem and the service that I received today was by far five star! We even got to banter as he showed me ipad shots of the back of my eye.

Me: ‘I don’t know how you do that every day without getting creeped out.’

My eye test was hilarious, because I could just see? So I couldn’t tell much of a difference between stuff?

‘Is it sharper with 1, or sharper with 2?’

‘I can’t tell?? They’re the same. I’m so sorry, I’m so rubbish at this game.’

‘It’s not a game. It’s real life. Is it sharper with 3 or with 4?’

‘They’re similar?? I’m gonna go with 3? Wait! I’m lying to you. 4!’

‘I knew you were lying to me…Lol…That’s why I changed the lens. I had a hunch. Don’t lie to me.’

I kinda just wanted a Corona….All I could see was the pub. 🙂

‘I hope, i’m interesting in your blog.’

Anyway, the staff and service couldn’t be better at Specsavers. It really couldn’t. I was so impressed. I was even a ‘Diva’ afterwards and asked for a spare free set, because I needed to go to the gym…and with a sly smile and a bit of cheeky love…they gave me one, to make me feel better.

‘Thank you for catering to my Diva Request. Lol. Honestly, i’ll live…it doesn’t matter that much…’

Lady: ‘I’ve got them for you. 😉 ‘

Me: ‘Aww, I feel bad now. Lol’

(I didn’t. 😉 )

But GOSH YES, LIVE IS CURRENTLY AMAZING. I don’t actually know why i’m so happy. I just am…

Find your happy….

It’s worth it…

Peacock Dresses, Trophies & Blog Awards

I have got the busiest and stressiest week ahead of me. Infact, it’s not a week…it’s a couple days. I’m just fitting a week into a couple days. Yipppee! When I say ‘stressy,’ I don’t actually mean stressy. I’m talking shite. As it’s all very exciting and all very BIG. I’m utterly utterly grateful. But i think i’m somewhat nervous.

So, I have work. Lots of it. However, this Friday is the big old UK Blog Awards. It’s a big day for me. I don’t expect to win it. Yet, that night is a huge networking night for anyone in Social Media with a personal brand, as the nations top bloggers, vloggers, influencers, brands and scouts will all be there. If you’re a blogger…YOU’RE SILLY IF YOU DON’T ATTEND THIS EVENT. Buy tickets. I mean, it sometimes makes me laugh, as I hear and get all these messages from people who are wanting to start a blog or have their digital content make a *stomp* in Cyberland…Yet they’re just sat at home twiddling their thumbs and have forgotten to go network at a venue that will be juiced with actual brands and agents wondering around looking for the next digital stars to wave the flag for their companies? Heeeellooo?

But yes, that’s on Friday, but on that Friday I’ll have a morning travel down to London, I’ll check into my hotel, yet I have then scheduled in a meeting with CEO Jack Parson’s at YourfeedUK (who i’m excited to meet) and after that little tinker of a meeting, I’ll be headed back to my hotel to be groomed and ‘dolled’ (I might actually also have to do some filming inbeteeen that time,) before I jump in a cab and head over to Park Plaza in Westminister for the Blog Awards. Well, I think that’s where it’s all going down?

I’ve been styled and they went with the Peacock dress. Yet, it’s so glamourous and so delightful that I’m now thinking,

‘Is that really the dress of a loser? Do I want to lose in that dress? Do I want to draw all this attention to myself and then lose? It’s a winners dress, not a pity party frock.’

So, I might go for something a little less ‘HEY LOOK, I’M A STAR.’ Lol But saying that, we know I probably won’t.

I’m excited. I have a week of work and promo for it. I’m not at all organised, as I haven’t even managed to gain EYE SIGHT for the the event yet! FUCK SAKE. I’ll be dressed like a peacock, without an award and BLIND all at the same time. I haven’t booked anything, or even given my courteousy email to Jack at Yourfeed yet. I have a management meeting, a brand meeting, I need to talk to my videographer…and I really want my nails doing,

The bank holiday has confused me, so I don’t know what day it is? Tuesday right? So, I have two days to sort my shit out and get my pretty oriental self to London on Friday. I need eye sight, that’d be a start.

AND to top it all off, whenever I go down to London, everyone wants me to show up at their joint, hotel, bar, party etc….so I have a pleather of ‘invites’ and saved tables awaiting my arrival, yet honestly, I really won’t have the time. If I did, I’d be there. I also have my Celeb one Snapchat Takeover soon and all my Summer is getting booked up with work that I have some very big decisions to make. Ugh!

I definitely should become a massive alcoholic, as these next couple days are going to ‘thrown down.’

Love you,

Chrissie
