Friends supporting friends

It is mental health awareness this week and it is so good to see lots of the lovely women (and Men!) supporting this.

I wanted to share a picture of my bestie, whom is a lovely lady that has supported me, without her my mental health wouldn’t be what it is today. Since aged 11 she has been my go to.

She has seen me through many an up and a down, she would stay with me when I wouldn’t leave the house, she picked me up when I fell down (literally). When my asthma was bad she would check I was breathing in my sleep. When I had to visit a psychiatrist, she walked me there and waited for me to come out. She listens to my troubles even though she has some of own. When I made bad choices in life, with hair, clothes, men, films she still stood next to me as my friend.

She still makes me laugh till it hurts and hopefully I will be able to be as good a friend to her as she has been to me.

Be like Sam, have a friend like Claire xx

Friends, Lobsters & Valentines

So on January 1st 2018 Netflix launched all 10 Seasons of Friends so you can watch every single episode back to back, so obviously some of the famous quotes will be making a come back and still doing the rounds.

I noticed in Paperchase a valentines card with “You’re my lobster” on it, and reminded me of Pheobe’s famous quote when Ross and Rachel finally got together – “He’s her lobster”.  This got me thinking about Lobsters and the trend that started last year although didn’t do aswell as pineapples, unicorns, flamingos and donuts.

It appears that this trend has continued over to 2018 along with the Cactus, Birds of paradise and Tropical prints.  I went on the hunt for Lobster merch and found all sorts of lovely products.

Here are my favourite lobster items for you to share with your loved ones this February 14th.
