Life updates and stuff!

So, it’s that time of year again where I sit, or lay, and reflect upon the last year of my life. Thing I’ve done wrong and learned lessons from, things that went incredibly right through nothing but luck (😂) and things that I wish had never happened.

So what am I thinking of? What sticks out? Read on and find out.

Hotel Hell

It’s Sunday, October 1st and we’re much more relaxed than we were yesterday.

I booked us in originally for the Blair Victoria Hotel via amoma.com …. Which I was directed to from Hotels.com. Two nights for £116.47. We arrived after travelling all morning, couldn’t check in till 2pm so we put down our bags and then went to find food; we checked in at 2.30pm ish and crashed on the bed.

Woke an hour ish later and had a good look around…. And were pretty horrified.

This is the bottom of the door to the en suite. I actually slipped while trying to shower because there was no non-slip flooring and then the water pressure messed up meaning hot/cold and back again. So we gave up on that…

Also i dont want water from this to touch me…. Ever.

The above is the extractor fan in the bathroom.

So we complained and we were moved from floor 3, room 26 (6 sets of stairs btw!) To room 40 in the basement. It was bigger with a better bathroom. Upon closer inspection however….

Black Mould incoming. The beds were damp and we couldn’t have the window open or all we could smell was an overflow pipe.

We spent a good four hours trying to find another room, thankfully MIL is amazing and got us into a new hotel at very short notice.

The stupid thing is that the owners of the previous hotel KNOW about the problems they have because they’re “planning a refit next year”.

I’m now gonna have to fight to get a refund from the place i booked it through (who are saying i have to go through my travel agent…..).

Maybe Judge Rinder could help? 😂

OH ALMOST FORGOT!! The Blair Victoria is 2 stars…. The Collier’s Hotel, that we are now in (who are AMAZING) are a 1 star hotel and are SO MUCH BETTER. I swear this is what it feels like to be in The Ritz.

Problematic Fave & Their Fan-Base

I want to preface this blog post with some notes.

  • I won’t be naming names.  If you read this and know exactly who I’m referencing, I politely ask you don’t comment/tweet with their name.
  • I had receipts on my browser and now I have to re-find them because everything crashed and I had to restore the factory settings – as I find them again, I will add them.
  • When I refer to this person’s fandom; I mean it as a generalisation and not a “everyone in the fandom is like this!”  I have friends in the fandom and they’ve been great with explaining certain things and even greater and understanding the POV from others.
  • This YT-er’s fan base is quite young; MOSTLY early to mid teens.  This is important to remember.
  • I DO NOT, under ANY circumstances, believe that this YT-er is a paedophile. I AM NOT accusing them of that offence.

Read on after the jump for more.

An Apology to #MattLucas

Dear Mr. M. Lucas,

This is long overdue and has been playing on my mind a lot recently. I made similar posts on former blogs before now, hoping you'd see them… and now I hope you haven't because I distinctly remember trying to justify myself.

There is no justification for the disgraceful and heartless "joke" I reposted on Twitter many years ago about yourself and your late husband.

For the longest time I would shrug it off by saying I didn't ever think you would see it, didn't know it was the real you replying and some other ridiculous excuses to make myself feel better.
The truth is none of that matters or makes it better and I should never have posted it in the first place. I was cocky, idiotic and cold hearted…. please know, I am no longer that person. I now take issues such as depression, self harm and suicide very seriously and know they are never a joke and shouldn't ever be any form of entertainment. I should have known back then and obviously I didn't.

I made an insurmountable mistake and royally fucked up and I cannot begin to imagine the hurt seeing that tweet caused you. With everything within me, I apologise unreservedly.

I hope you do see this and please know, that this mistake has not & will not be repeated. Ever.

I'm not looking for forgiveness; only for you to know that I want to be as far away as possible from the person I was back then. I have grown and matured through experiences I wouldn't ever wish on anyone, and I am ashamed of myself for what I posted.

I am so very sorry.

Yours Sincerely
Miss K.P. Hall. (Twitter: @KatVonHall )

Note: I can't remember the Twitter name I was using back then. I do know I deleted the account when I started a new one.

Weight Loss & Body Positivity

I want to preface this with a content warning and place it all under a cut as it does deal with weight loss and as someone who still fights an eating disorder – I understand.  So PLEASE, if you feel this post will trigger you in ANY way, don’t read on.  I totally get it and understand.  
Recovery is always possible and attainable.

The First Time… #SexBlog

I meant to do this much sooner than I have; however I wanted to get it all written out, or at least my thoughts written down so I knew where I was gonna go with this.
I figured the best way was to just go point by point of a tumblr post (surprise surprise), that meant well but is actually quite problematic for many.

So here is the post….

And after the jump we’ll go through it together.  

  • I also wish to note that this whole post refers to penis-in-vagina intercourse.

RIP Beauty Standards [#BodyPositivityForAll]

Quite a harsh title, I’ll give you that… However it should be true. 

This blog started as one thing and turned into a battle cry of sorts…. But I am legitimately not upset about that… Keep reading…

My Top 5… [[Part 4]]

…Fave Pop Songs!

Part 1 // Part 2 // Part 3 // Part 4 // Part 5

Everyone has those guilty pleasures; whether you bop to Westlife, Backstreet Boys or Take That.  We have those songs that still make us smile, we still know the routines to and we still know all the lyrics.  They may remind us of a fun summer, a snowy winter or a great friendship…. but we all have them.  I’d love to know your guilty pleasures in the comments section.

As always – none of these are in any specific order.

My Top 5… [[Part 3]]

…. Favourite Rock Songs

Part 1 // Part 2 // Part 3 // Part 4 // Part 5

I’ve been brought up with quite eclectic tastes in music; however it’s always been the heavier side of things that I gravitate towards.  At the age of five I sang along word for word to Sabbath Bloody Sabbath – much to the amusement of my mother and disgrace of my grandmother.

So…. on wards!

My Top 5 [[Part 2]]

….. Songs for your sex playlist.

Part 1 // Part 2 // Part 3 // Part 4 // Part 5

Part 2 of my gods-know how many Top 5’s – you can read my intro and part one here; so I don’t think I need to re-type that.

One of the many playlists I’ve found people have is a sexy times playlist and of course, I am no different.  While some of the tracks have changed over time and new ones are added in, I do have five staples that will be somewhere in there.

Shall we?
