Sketchers Slippers from Mastershoe



We all love a review, right? But sometimes, when you see a pristine outfit, or a shoe, you always wonder whether someone has just put on the outfit for pictures and then taken it off again. I'm not wrong, am I?

Meet my slippers. These were sent to me to review by Mastershoe. You can check them out here.

http://www.mastershoe-sportshoe.co.uk

black and white picture of slippers



Now, I COULD show you pictures of these slippers straight out of the box. But it would not be a true representation of how much I love these slippers. As soft as putting your foot in a sheep's butt, (and probably as warm. They are SPARKLY, and they have hard soles, meaning I can do the school run in them (I joke, although I COULD, if I wanted to) 


Slippers

These are not just ANY slippers, these are Sketchers slippers. which means they are hard wearing as well as just looking good. I have rigorously tested these slippers, both around the house with PJs, and by running out into the garden and putting rubbish into the bin in the rain. They still look good and feel good. 

I feel like I would be cheating you by just taking them out of the box and taking pictures, I have worn these HARD over the last few weeks and they still feel and look good. 


Inside view of worn slippers

And I have had a good sniff. There is no stinky odour, which can be a problem with furry slippers after a while. 

If you need slippers, I HIGHLY recommend that you check out these Skechers Slippers. You can find them here http://www.mastershoe-sportshoe.co.uk/skechers-m-26.html Mastershoe, in fact, I have linked to all of their Skechers, as I am currently eyeing up a pair of shoes from their Go Walk range and they have Free UK delivery and returns at the moment. 



What do you think? Do you like my slippers? Does any one else love slippers with hard soles that you can run outside in? They are absolutely essential for me.

Card Games, (Or, Why I Hate Sending Christmas Cards)



So now you seem to have all thrown caution to the wind and put up your Xmas trees, (THERE IS JUST NO CAGING YOU GUYS) my next question is this.

Christmas Cards, Yay or Nay.


Black and white christmas cards and pen


Now personally, I am not a fan of Christmas cards, purely because I don't like writing the same few lines over and over again.

Ask me to write a Birthday card, I am ALL OVER THAT, as long as it is only one. Any more than one card and my attention span wavers and I start to get bored.


There are many little tricks and tips that I can share with you to stop yourself from getting bored while writing Xmas cards,

1)  Don't buy any Christmas cards, seriously. Don't do it. Donate to your favourite charity instead and just tell people that this is what you are doing instead of sending cards this year.

2) Don't buy any Christmas cards, just text people. Or even better, tweet people. Merry Xmas M8. Job done.

3) Email Christmas cards. Ok so your parents will probably not approve, but you know what? If you only have to send one card and you send it to your parents, I think you are safe.

4) Get the kids to write the cards, If anyone complains, you can be MORALLY OUTRAGED that they DON'T APPRECIATE your children. In fact, you can go as far as to ask, WHY they hate your children.

5) Write a blog post explaining why you don't like writing Christmas cards and hope that people get the hint that they won't be receiving Christmas cards this year.................. (waits for the penny to drop) Um, Merry Christmas?




Are YOU a lover of writing Christmas cards? Do you enjoy writing them each yea? Or do you feel that it is boring, yet still write them, Or do you HATE writing them and wish that everyone would just text?

Nom Or Vom



Ok, I admit, I have absolutely NO CLUE who this guy is. Which makes searching for pictures EXTREMELY difficult, (Side note, NEVER search an actors name, followed by the word naked, MY EYEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSS> Is there just ONE person out there photoshopping penises onto actors bodies, or lots? I really need to know)


Ok, so this week's Nom or Vom was requested by the lovely Jamie Sowden, (I say requested, I mean, he jumped up and down and pointed me in the direction of this actors Twitter feed. SOLD) 

So ladies and gentlemen, without further ado, I bring you this week's Nom or Vom.


JACK FALAHEE











Apparently he is in a show called, How To Get Away With Murder. I may start watching, I've always wondered if there was a technique to it.



So, what do you think of Jamie's choice?


Does he make you go, nom, nom, nom?

Blogger Gossip




Pssssssssst, want to hear some gossip? About a blogger? Of COURSE YOU DO, and when I write it down, it MUST be true, right?



There are PLENTY of websites out there, dedicate to spreading gossip about gurus, (see what I did there?) I have seen how bloggers can be hurt by these websites and I have witnessed the fall-out surrounding these sites, leading to people falling out, shutting down their social media and closing their blogs.

But they are out there, and they are out there because people thrive on gossip, they like to read it, and some people like to spread it, if they didn't get the traffic, these sort of sites wouldn't exist.

And it is EASY for me to say, just ignore it, don't pay it any attention, you are feeding the trolls, but you know what? Whenever I am given that advice, I tell people to stick it, too. so I won't.

Instead, just today, my comments are open to spread GOOD things about people.

For example.

DID YOU HEAR, that a well liked and respected blogger has a beauty box collaboration coming out soon? How cool is that?



DID YOU KNOW that a certain red-headed blogger has a birthday this week and I hear she turns 21!!! I really hope she has a great day.


I HEARD that a certain colourful blogger has created a girl gang. What an amazing idea, she is really amazing like that, always thinking of others.

AND one poor tweeter is suffering TERRIBLY from period cramps today. Poor thing!!!!!!!

and so on, and so on.



So who would like to share some GOOD gossip about bloggers, let us fight negativity and hate with POSITIVITY.

Blood, Sweat and Women's Tears.



I know I was not alone yesterday, watching the Autumn Statement in absolute terror, wondering how I was going to be screwed over once again. I think everyone was 100% that in one way or another we were going to be hit where it hurt, in the pocket.

Now I can talk about tax credits, pensions and the price of cigarettes but the one thing that has really left me torn is the Tampon Tax. I really, truly, do not know how to feel about the VAT on sanitary products will fund women's charities.

MY first thought is, are these are the charities that have had their services mercilessly cut by the government until they cannot offer any help at all due to lack of funding, at which point the government says, "Well these charities clearly don't make a difference, so we are going to cut their finding even further." (Cough, NHS, Cough) 

Now, don't get me wrong, I AM glad that these organisations will be getting funding. Charities such as Rape Crisis, which do extremely valuable work, had warned that nearly half of their organisation is threatened with closure. But it ANGERS me that it has come to this.


These organisations SHOULDN'T need propping up with my menstruation. 

tampons

These charities should be well funded already, they shouldn't have to turn away women, or not be able to help victims of violence or homelessness.

There is also an air of, well these are WOMEN'S PROBLEMS, SO WOMEN CAN PAY FOR THEM, about this whole situation.

I include a statement from Refuge, below.

 The link to the statement is here. http://www.refuge.org.uk/2015/11/25/15-million-from-tampon-tax-for-womens-charities-refuge-responds/

There is also the point that George Osbourne says, he will go to the EU to discuss removing the VAT on tampons. What will happen to the funding for women's charities then? Will it be cut back again?


And what is next, Gideon? Will we put the tax back on Jaffa Cakes and solve the problem of Food Banks so children don't have to go hungry?


I just don't know whether to be angry or happy about the whole situation. It has left me confused, I know that I am angry that it has even come to this situation, but why must the responsibility of helping women be laid at our doorstep and ours alone?


Help me out here, let me know your thoughts on this situation.







PS.

Q) What is the difference between tampons and George Osborne? 

A) Nothing, they are both stuck up cunts.

The Scent Of A Woman



Ok, hands up, who remembers wearing perfume such as LouLou and Charlie when they were a teen? (Yep, nods. raises hand) My "signature scent" when I was a teen was the rather glorious, Giorgio Beverley Hills, damn I loved that perfume. I imagine that if I smelled it now, I would be instantly transported back to 1990. Falling in love for the first time, and extremely good music.

I used to own so many different types of perfume as well, I was a teenage sensory migraine,  no signature scent, just random smells depending on what was closest in the morning.

NOW, well ok, now I think I have it together. My signature scent is Jo Malone, Red Roses. In fact that is pretty much the only perfume that I wear now. I love the smell of roses and so many people had recommended buying it as it was long lasting, I thought I would give it a go. I have worn this perfume nearly every day for almost a year and can you see how much I still have in the bottle?


Perfume Bottle with skull


I am tempted to buy another perfume, so that I can alternate, keep the Red Roses as my signature scent and find another one that I can wear as more of a day fragrance.

Perfume Bottle with skull



Do you have a favourite fragrance? Either a Jo Malone scent you can recommend I try, or something else? What do you wear? Do you do day perfumes and evening perfumes?

A Striking New Appearance For Hollywood Bowl



When you are a family of five that includes two teenagers, a 9 year old and two adults that are looking around for adultier adults to do the adulting, it is hard to find things to do as a family that doesn't end up in either,

A) Tears,
B) Sulks,
or,
C) the Accident & Emergency Dept. (What can I say, we need adultier adults) 


Last week we were invited, as a family, to attend the opening of the relaunch of the Hollywood Bowl bowling alley in Cardigan Fields, Leeds. I must admit, I hadn't visited this bowling alley before it had a £500,000 refurbishment, but people to whom I spoke before my visit said that it was slightly run down, and the word "dingy" was used more than once.

Trust me, it is NOT dingy any more.

bowling balls

Glossy, bright and stylish with a slick American diner feel, Hollywood Bowl is now a place that you can take the whole family for a fun evening out. You can bowl, you can play in the arcades, you can even have a couple of games of pool and a meal in the diner. The Hollywood Bowl in Cardigan Fields is now a place that can satisfy even the most sulky of teenagers, the most childish adults, and it can even melt the soul of a 9yr old whose idea of fun is staring down Chuck Norris and making him cry. (True story. Ok, it isn't. But she COULD) 

Because it was the Grand Reopening, the ribbon was cut by none other than Marilyn Monroe, (She bowls a bit don't you know?) 

Hollywood Bowl Leeds




And can you spot the blue-haired blogger who managed to NOT blend in, in the group shot?



Group shot with marilyn monroe

While we were at the opening, we decided to have a meal as a family, (because no-one had attempted to kill each other yet, or even swap cross words, this is unheard of. If anything is going to kick off, a meal for 5 while sitting in a car, cut in half is probably the place it will happen, right?) 


Now a meal for 5 people is usually not the most stress-free event, but because everyone was either busy sipping Oreo milkshakes from tiny bottles, eating Hot Dogs or devouring a rather large burger, as seen below, there was no time for arguments or disagreements. Instead we laughed, we counted up our stickers for getting Strikes, and protected our "I AM THE WINNER" Stickers from jealous sticker-free fingers.

burger and chips Hollywood Bowl leeds

Everyone cleared their plates, everyone agreed that we needed to pay Hollywood Bowl another visit in the future, everyone agreed that the staff were exceptional, friendly, enthusiastic and genuinely happy to help.


And everyone agreed that a game of pool was now in order.


Pool ball and cues at Hollywood Bowl leeds


I HIGHLY recommend spending an evening at a Hollywood Bowl if you have one near you, if you live in or near Leeds, why not pay a visit to Cardigan Fields to see how the refurbishment looks, they even have VIP lanes where you can pay £1 extra per person and get a special lane which is filled with extras such as the cool bowling balls at the top of the page and your own server to help get you drinks and food. Well worth the extra pound.


Are you a bowling fan? Have you ever been before? Would you take your family?


Let me know.

The Sun, Media Terrorism and Inciting Racial Hatred.


I don't read The Sun, I don't read The Sun because if I wanted to be fuelled with hatred for others and filled full of mistruths, misinformation and spoon fed misogyny daily, I would.....well, I would read The Sun, I suppose.

But todays headline in what is meant to be a national newspaper has taken my breath away.



NEVER have I read something so inflammatory, something designed to create hatred, in a world that has already experienced so much hate, this front page is not only irresponsible, it is inciting racial hatred.

Every day recently, I have seen posts regarding muslim people being attacked, just because they are muslim. Attacked because of their religious beliefs? Because newspapers, and I use the word news, loosely,  have whipped people up into a frenzy and made the actions of a few terrorists into something that people who follow a whole religion must be held accountable for.

This headline, this violent and shocking headline, is based on a poll, say The Sun Newspaper. AN EXCLUSIVE SHOCK POLL, shrieks the headline. I am going to stand up here and now and say that The Sun newspaper is talking ABSOLUTE BOLLOCKS.

It is in their interests as a rag to whip up frenzies, I take it that this year there were no False Widow spiders or foxes eating babies that they could get people het up over, so they are going to take a peaceful religion, and make it so that people see them, they freeze in fear.

The world right now DOES NOT NEED The Sun to give people excuses to attack people, and that is happening throughout Britain right now. People are abusing Muslims, both verbally and physically, and these people are doing it partly because they have been incited to do so by rags such as The Sun.


What happens when someone is killed? Will The Sun admit that they have blood on their hands? They are MEDIA TERRORISTS, recruiting through their front pages and inciting violence.

I cannot stand by and watch as these front pages happen, I refuse to let them go by unchecked. If the Muslim community is being told that they should stand up and say that they do not condone terrorism. Then we should ALSO stand up and say that THE SUN IS NOT TALKING FOR US.

What are your thoughts on the front page of The Sun today?

Let me know.

Ready, Steady, Christmas.



"Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree, Why are you too big to fit in my living rooooooooooom?"

Catchy, huh?


Unfortunately, I am not going to be able to partake in the annual brag of who has the best/biggest/greenest/most ethically sourced/funky/alternative/pet friendly/pet unfriendly Christmas tree this year, as I have NO ROOM for a proper Christmas tree in my living room. (If everyone in the room could just go, aaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh, here please) 

Quite frankly, I don't know how my Instagram is going to cope. There go my late November/Early December postings. (Here's to all the likes I am never going to get)

Ok, so I am being a bit of a drama queen. I'm actually ok with not having a Christmas Tree this year, I am still not quite over the real tree fiasco of 2014 yet, and I am still finding the odd pine needle where I least expect it. (Don't ask)


and I am CERTAINLY not going to judge people over their trees and when they put them up, considering that once I add baubles to the wall decoration above, that will be my tree finished. (Hmmmmmmm, I'm pretty sure I can Instagram the shit out of this. Plus, PINTEREST, HERE I COME) 


But WHEN is the RIGHT time to start putting up the tree anyway? Some people have them up already, Some people wait until the first weekend in December. WHEN do I need to start cracking out the baubles for my tree?


This is the christmas tree equivalent of The Great British Bake Off, Timing is EVERYTHING.

I haven't even started Christmas shopping yet!!!! I know, I know. My Facebook is FULL of people who have not only started their shopping, but have finished, wrapped, and started next years shopping in the sales.

(This, my friend, is why the unfriend button was created, I do not need this kind of negativity on my social media. This is unexpected peer pressure that I can never live up to.)


I WILL start my Christmas shopping soon. I WILL start placing baubles on my 'tree" soon. I WILL start getting into the christmas alcohol spirit soon. I'm just not quite ready yet.



How about you?


When do you put up your tree? Is it up already? Have you started your christmas shopping yet, or are you waiting until the sales start at the beginning of December.

Nom or Vom?



This week's Nom or Vom was an easy one, and whilst I don't want to go down the route of OK magazine and the Daily (hate) Mail by saying in a slightly creepy voice, "Ooooooh look at them, all grown up. It's ok now to want to shag them, and now it's LEGAL" I must point out that this X Factor star has seriously beefed up.

Without further ado, I bring you this week's Nom or Vom, the lovely RAY QUINN. 








Oooooooh la la. Now he isn't for me, I must admit, but I can truly appreciate the hard work that has gone into sculpting that body. 

How about for you? 

Does Ray Quinn have the Sex Factor for you?

What's Your Hobby?



So I am finding myself with a lot more time on my hands lately, my children are growing up and don't need me quite as much as they once did and suddenly I am finding blocks of time that I want to fill with........ well, something.

I need a hobby.


I can't knit, or crochet, and if I am honest, it isn't something that interests me so that's out. but I want something TO DOOOOOOOOOOOO.


(Apart from blogging, this isn't a hobby, it is a way of life)

I love photography, but I don't actually own a good camera so that idea is out of the window. (Cough, Cough, Santa)




What hobbies do you have? What keeps you sane or interested? I would love to know what different things that people do for fun, or to relax of an evening, (Currently I just eat)


So let me know your hobby, how you got into it, what you get out of it, and why you enjoy it. Maybe we can find me a new hobby?

The Story Of Your Life, Who Plays You?



Imagine the scene. Finally, the movie of your life is going to be made, someone is going to tell your story, and we all do have a story. The phone rings, and the producer says, "Right, we are all set to go, who would you like to play you in the movie of your life?"

Firstly. This isn't no made for TV crap, I'm talking the big budgets here, you can have whoever you want to direct the movie of your life (I'm going to see if Michael Bay is available) 

I was thinking about this last night, after a rather fun blogger chat on Twitter, It seems a lot of you would watch the movie of my life. 

Let me tell you now, it would be a horror movie, with a romantic twist, with a underlying dark humour that only some people would get. 

But who would I want to play me? Once i had persuaded myself that Megan Foz is too young/bland/cannot really act and looks better than me in denim shorts, I decided that if I was playing this game fairly, the person who I would love to play me in the movie of my life would be Kathleen Turner, Do we remember her? 



I like her style. 



I love the sound of her voice, her dry humour, and she always made me laugh. So if there was a movie of my life, I would love her to play me. 

But it did take me a while to come up with someone, so now it is your turn, WHO would you want, to play you in the movie of your life, and why? 

Plus, what kind of movie would it be? 


And do you think I'm right to pick Kathleen Turner? 


I would love to read your comments, let me know,

Christmas Gift Guide For The Woman In Your Life



As you are probably aware, I don't do gift guides usually, but people keep asking me, (They don't) "Kellie, What can I buy for the woman that I love, this Christmas?" So I thought I would put together this quick and easy gift guide, to make it easy for everyone.

And remember, this Gift Guide isn't just for the men out there. This Gift Guide is for EVERYONE.


These are just some of the emails that I have received recently, I hope I can help you all with this gift guide.


"What can I buy as a Secret Santa gift for the woman in my office who I don't really know that well?"

Secret Santa is a notoriously difficult one, but I think I have found something for you that will come in under budget and put a smile on her face.


The Compax Pearl is a great gift because it doesn't scream ostentatious but still shows that you care and have considered her needs and been THOUGHTFUL. Wrap these up and you will be the toast of the office and the person that everyone hopes they get as their Secret Santa in 2016.



"I need to buy a Christmas present for my teenage niece whom I don't see that often, What ARE teenagers into these days?"


This is a simple one to solve, teenagers are ALL About the labels, and with this gift you will be their favourite relative from this day onwards. Watch her face as she unwraps them. The true spirit of Christmas is with you this year.




"It is my wife's birthday on Christmas Day and I usually buy her a joint present, Any recommendations for something I can buy her that she can enjoy all year round?" 

A joint present is always a tricky one, may I recommend pushing the boat out this Christmas and really spoiling her? Anything with with word Ultra in it shows that you don't mind spending the extra money and if she is a "Luxury Bitch" why not upgrade to the heavy flow packet? I'm sure your wife will be worth it.









So I hope you have enjoyed my very first Christmas Gift Guide for the women in your life. If I can help any more of you with Christmas Gift ideas, let me know in the comments, I will be happy to help.


Just let me know,

Sloths, Demonic hell dwellers or something worse?




Sloths.

Evil bastards. Genuinely, if you are a brand, looking for a new PR company, try to find out which PR company is repping sloths these days and get them to look after you because anyone who can make an evil creature with blades for fingernails seem like something you would want to have a "Netflix and Chill" session with, has to be worth TOP DOLLAR.


LOOK AT ITS FACE.



That fucker wants to kill you, your family, your next door neighbour and then it wants to have sex with your dog.

Somehow, this KILLER of all mankind has gone from being what Edward Scissorhands was based on if you took away the empathy for others, the love for the world and the ability to cut hair, to being something you want to buy a sofa from.

Are you fricking kidding me?


DEMONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN.


If a sloth could actually be bothered to move, and there is a huge part of me that wonders whether their perceived laziness is just a huge ploy to lull us into a false sense of security, then sloths would be running the world. Forget Planet of The Apes, Planet Of The Sloths, I can see it happening.

But no, they have obviously paid out the big money, (probably money they have robbed at fingernail point) and got themselves a good PR company to fake them out as cuddly little creatures that people want to cuddle. SUCKERS.

They probably went split the bill with Koalas. If Sloths are demons, then Koalas are their little henchmen. FACT.


I am not fooled by the Sloths, you won't catch me falling for their tricks, and when the sloths have you imprisoned in human zoos, don't say I didn't warn you, ok?



Sloths, Demons sent straight from hell, or am I overreacting?

Social Experiments, YouTube Herpes



If a Youtuber gives a homeless man $100 and doesn't film it, did it really happen?


If I hear the words "Social Experiment" uttered one more time then I am going to lose my shit. Youtubers everywhere, but especially in America it seems, are creating content under the guise of it being a social experiment. They leave babies in hot cars, they abuse women, they prey on small children in parks and have small children begging, but its OK GUYS, IT WAS JUST A SOCIAL EXPERIMENT.

Knob off.

The words Social Experiment are now an excuse to be a dick for hits. It isn't about changing the world, or holding a mirror up to society in order to make them realise their errors and help them to mend their ways, it is a technique as transparent as "And You Will Never Guess What Happens Next" to try to make something go viral.




Social Experiments are YouTube Herpes, Everyone is chasing the hits, and this years big draw is setting up situations and seeing how they play out. From violence against women to whether your child will go off with a stranger, everything is designed to make us watch and SHARE. (It's not enough to watch, you have to share, otherwise how will it spread?)

And some of these social experiments are very well done, I watched with horror as small children went off with the stranger to look at his puppies/grab an ice cream/be taken home. It made me talk again with my own children about strangers and yes, I shared the video. (Sharing is caring)

But for every ONE video that is designed to make us think, or look in that mirror, there are a hundred more where someone is JUST BEING A DICK. Chasing the hits, being abusive to other people and even hurting people, all under the guise of it being a SOCIAL EXPERIMENT.


Big Brother was once a Social Experiment, now look at it.

I wonder how many of these Youtubers currently involved in Social Experiments would do the same things without a camera rolling, without the incentive of hits to their sites, without anyone hitting like or sharing their content. Would they give that homeless guy $50 or look up womens skirts with a camera to see if anyone will stop them? Of course they wouldn't?

A social experiment is not a social experiment when one or more people involved has something to gain from the outcome, as it is in their interest to make sure it goes a certain way. It is not a Social Experiment, it is all about the hits.


Surely the true social experiment would be to ask these Youtubers how many times they have engineered situations like these, WITHOUT there being cameras involved.

Time to look in the mirror, ladies and gents, at YOURSELVES.


What do YOU think about these Social Experiments? Do you find them interesting? Or just another way for the Youtube to get hits? Have you seen any videos that have made you feel uncomfortable?

Halloweenmas



I have to admit, I'm sad that October is over. Ok, I'm sad that Halloween is over. Halloween, for me, is the main reason I am ok with it getting darker, earlier. Throw in some foggy weather and I am so happy, I could probably wee. 

The problem with Halloween being over is that first we have Bonfire night, (which, let's face it, is like over-rated sex. All that build up, a bit of heat, then just a couple of flashes, a couple of bangs and you are left thinking, "Was that it?") and then that is it until Christmas. 

After getting the chance to dress up in October, isn't it unfair that we then get nothing until the end of December?

I would like to suggest we throw in another opportunity, perhaps at the beginning of December, to dress up again. Wear the costume we didn't have the balls to wear for Halloween, or wear the costume that didn't ARRIVE in time for Halloween, forcing you to raid the back of your wardrobe for alternatives. 

The beginning of December is usually filled with the haunted eyes of gift givers, clutching their red cups around shopping centres as they buy any old crap to fill the quota they have, or the haunted eyes of a parent searching for the must-have toy that their darling crotchfruit has requested Santa bring them, knowing that it has sold out in shops, but that's ok, because it is SANTA bringing it.

Now imagine the aforementioned shopping going on, while dressed as a bunny, or a skeleton, or a bunny skeleton.

Doesn't that sound like fun. In fact, I think it sounds SO MUCH FUN that we should actually make this an adult only celebration.

Trick or treating will consist of knocking on someone's front door with an empty glass, and they either fill it with wine or juice. The sweets can stay, I like them. House decorations consist of the October decorations that you didn't take down, and Christmas decorations you have just put up.

WE SHALL CALL THIS HOLIDAY, HALLOWEENMAS.

So if I tap on your door between now and Christmas, especially with shopping bags in my hand, keep that wine cold, 

Trick or treat, people. TRICK OR TREAT.


Who will be celebrating HALLOWEENMAS with meeeeeeeeeeee?


Let me know.
