let me introduce myself

Hey guys,

Thanks so much for taking the time to read my blog. I thought I would take a moment to tell you a bit about me!

My name is Grace, I'm 29 and I live in Bristol. I'm a beauty therapist, Hairdresser and Make Up artist. I have run my own business for the past 9 years. I would class myself as a generally happy person, I'm kind (maybe too kind) and sympathetic (to a degree!) and I would definitely say I'm a good friend to have. I am a big family girl, my family means everything to me.

I am single and on a quest to find my prince charming, If any of you know any please do let me know, they seem to be in short supply and I have kissed enough frogs to last a life time! My main goal is to find what makes my ultimately happy, other than cocktails and chocolate of course! I am also searching for the slim girl that I know is trapped in my currently not so slim frame, all hail Weight Watchers (watch out for weight loss Wednesdays)!

My down side is that I do take things personally and I definitely dwell on things, but one of my many goals for this year was to work on that, as my sister says I need a bit more Bitch in me! So maybe this could be the year of the semi bitch, I don't want to take it too far, remember I wouldn't like it if people were mean about me and I would dwell on it for ages! haha.

I would also say I'm a bit of a perfectionist, which is good and bad, It kind of means I'm constantly striving for goals that are sometimes not very realistic, what I want to know is how do fully except you for you? how can you just be happy with your lot? Well challenge excepted, I'm making it my mission to try and find the answer to those questions, watch out now!

What makes you happy? Have you got any tried and recommended ideas for brighten up your life? Please let me know. I would love to hear about you all, who you are, what you do and if there is ever anything you would like me to cover please shout! You can leave comments here (if you want a personal reply please leave your email) or follow me on twitter.

Until next time,

Grace xx

I have been thinking about writing this blog for a little while now and keep talking myself in and out of it! But when I mentioned it to my mum she said "if your thinking about it you should do it!" so here I am!

I already have a beauty and style blog, but I wanted this one to be a bit different. More personal I guess. I have had a tough few months and have over come a few challenges along the way, and I started to think, well I wont be the only person that goes through things so maybe I could put myself out there and lend a helping hand when it comes to finding ways to deal with everyday situations that life throws at you (all too often for my liking!)

I want to cover everything here, maybe even work my way towards taking over the world one day, one issue at a time! Ok, maybe not that but I do want to have a laugh and make life a little lighter!

From relationships, confidence issues, weight and friendships we all come across times when we just want to hide under the duvet with a big bar of chocolate and not come out again until its all sorted itself out, but unfortunately we all have to pull ourselves together and sort it out ourselves! Every person deals with things in different ways, and no way is necessarily right or wrong, I'm hoping to share with you my life whether I chose the right option or if I grabbed the chocolate and am still hiding under my duvet!

I don't want it to be all doom and gloom, I think you have to find the best in most situations and if you can look back and laugh you will feel all the better for it! I do tend to laugh a lot (quite often at myself, and not because I'm a comedian) and I think laughter can be the best cure so feel free to laugh at my expense!

I really hope you will enjoy my future posts, If they help then mission accomplished, but if they just give you the chance to think you have found someone with more funnyiosities than you then that's great too!

So get ready for the life of Grace!

Grace xx
