10 Day You Challenge: Day 6

Shared by Rebecca U at 9:30 AM 1 comments Links to this post

Day 6: Six Places

Some places that I love are:

- My bed -  I love sleeping and have the most comfy bed and duvet ever

- North Yorkshire - Where I was born and raised. It's so pretty and holds so many lovely memories for me.

- LDS Temples - I love visiting them and serving there. My husband and I were married in the Preston LDS temple



- The Caribbean - Mike and I went to one island there with my family when we were dating and went to a different island there on our honeymoon. I love it there, so beautiful, chilled out and sunny.


- Anywhere with my little family - love my two boys


- Airports - so random but I don't find them stressful at all (unless my husband is stressing). You are forced to look in the lovely shops and to just chill out, maybe read a book or listen to music, and wait. Plus, if you are at an airport it means you are going on holiday!!

18 months...

Shared by Rebecca U at 9:30 AM 1 comments Links to this post
18 months. How time has flown. Max is such a lovely little blonde boy and we love him and his sweet personality so much. Here is what he is up to and looking like, these days...

Wee man got a hair cut! (and I like to think I'm getting slightly better at styling boy hair)

One of his favourite things to do right now - go and feed the ducks whilst shouting 'dack' (he sounds so southern... nooooo!)

Concentrating on his art work

He loves colouring with felt-tips and making a general mess

Look at me draw!

Real guys wear pink..
                                              
Posing and running around. Everywhere.

Daddy still has his heart set on him being an F1 driver...

He always makes me laugh

Daddy was on lunch duty whilst I was taking a nap - chocolate??

Playing it through...

Can time please slow down a little bit please??

Day Five: Five Foods

Wow, this is hard as I am a bit of a foodie, so I'll stick with savoury and go for...

- Anything Mexican - particularly Cafe Rio
- Sushi - so yum
- Roast dinner with Yorkshire puddings, oh yeah!
- Red Peppers - I could eat them all day long
- Eggs - my diet consists of quite a lot of eggs so I've learnt all the different ways they can be used and I can't get enough (don't worry, usually just egg whites)!

Gah, that was hard to pick. What are your five faves?

Trolls under the bridge

Shared by Rebecca U at 9:00 AM 4 comments Links to this post
I have seen on quite a few blogs over the past month quite a lot of trolls around. Not the kind we use to have as toys but  horrible, nasty internet trolls. People that anonymously hide behind made up profiles and leave horrible comments on blogs. Like, really horrible, personal comments. I have always known that girls can be mean. Heck, I am a girl. AND I went to Secondary School. So I fully know the reality of it. But why??

First was one I saw on The Barefoot Blonde blog. Amber from Barefoot Blonde runs a fashion
from www.barefootblonde.com
blog and somebody had created a GFC account in her name, linking to her blog and leaving comments on other fashion bloggers posts saying they looked fat and their outfits were disgusting etc. Why would somebody do this? Yes, Amber is a model with a fabulous figure and lovely locks and great style (basically I want to look like her), but is that justification enough to make her look bad and make it look like she is a horrible person? Luckily she has carried on blogging but it could really affect some people and they would stop doing it, even if it was a successful blog or not.

Another blog I follow, Chelsea Chapman, has had horrible comments anonymously written on her posts. Chelsea is also a fashion/ beauty blogger and she has had awful comments saying that she looks like a rat and saying that it doesn't matter what she wears, she will still look disgusting. I ask again, why? I am pretty sure it is females doing this, to other females. Men wouldn't care and are never as nasty with words. So women of they world, why, why why??

I am going to make sure that when I comment on blogs I keep being positive and hopefully uplifting so that other bloggers will want to carry on writing and posting their individual posts. Who is with me?

One of the things I really like about blogging is that they are all different. And that is because WE are all different. That's a good thing by the way! Don't be afraid to wear the outfits you want to wear, write the posts you want to post or share the photos you want to share.

Whoever these trolls are, they are obviously afraid to be who they are.

Town or Country Mouse

Shared by Rebecca U at 9:00 AM 2 comments Links to this post
Ever since reading the book as a little girl, I have often wondered if I was a town mouse or a country mouse. I have always lived in small towns so have had the best of both, being close to countryside in one direction and cities in another.

We recently spent the day at my in-laws down in Kent and despite the freezing weather we were determined to be outside, get some vitamin D and release my inner country mouse!








We played a little bit of football and picked some berries. Then we fed the horses next door and I had my first ever go at clay-pigeon shooting. Shocking, is all I can say. The hubs however is a natural, it seems.





So what do you prefer, town or country?

All about: Being a Brit

Shared by Rebecca U at 9:30 AM 6 comments Links to this post
 I saw a picture on Pinterest the other day that stated come 'Very British Problems' - I thought it was really funny so I thought I would share some little gems, that I think make this lovely little isle what it is, especially with the recent St. George's Day...

- Saying 'thank you' after a parking warden has given you a parking ticket
- Answering the phone by saying your phone number, instead of hello
- Being indifferent towards marmite
- Someones cat meowed during the two minute silence, they were alone but had never felt more embarrassed
- Loving a good, orderly queue
- Apologising for not smoking when someone asks you for a light
- Accidentally pressing the stop button on the bus, but instead of explaining to the bus driver what you happened, you get off the bus and walk the rest of the journey
- Someone browsing the food in the supermarket where you want to look so you pretend to look at something else, that you don't need or want, until they are finished
- When an american family says you can help yourself to anything in their fridge / cupboards - this goes against everything we know
- Sitting down to watch a nature documentary but turning it off as soon as David Attenborough isn't the narrator
- Having no idea how to respond to 'what's up?'
- The M&S food queue moves too fast for those people that can't deicde if they want to add Percy Pigs to their basket
- Arriving at a roundabout at the same time other drivers from other directions. Awkward...
- Having a hair cut and the haridresser asks 'Is that alright?'. You nod. It isn't.
- Phoning a US customer support team for your NetFlix and hanging up on them as they are obviously being sarcastic. Who is that overly polite?

and for all the Brit 90's kids - this made me smile :)

AAU: Giveaway!

Shared by Rebecca U at 9:18 AM 3 comments Links to this post
Its that time again, when I have some fabulous skin cream up for grabs for two lucky winners. I am a massive fan of Alokui - myself and the fam use it regularly. I am also an ambassador for the brand so basically, I want everyone to know how great it is!



It is completely organic and contains... 

- KuKui Nut Oil for skin healing
- Wheat Germ Oil for skin cure
- Allantoin for cell renewal
- Aloe Vera for skin soothing

It is great for all the family, can be used as a normal day moisturiser cream, hand cream, after-sun... the list goes on! It even works wonders on my little one, as a nappy rash cream. I really like it as it isn't not a greasy cream and really absorbs deep into the skin.

You can check out more about Alokui and visit my eBay shop to buy some HERE. (If you aren't on eBay or want to purchase some Alokui after entering the giveaway, you can email me to order some at allaboutublog@gmail.com . If you quote 'AAU Blog' you will get £1.00 off a 40ml tube or £2.00 off a 250ml bottle).

But onto the giveaway - to enter to win one of the two 40ml tubes up for grabs, just complete the Rafflecopter below and complete as many of entries as you fancy - you have until 1st June.

Good luck lovely people!

Day Three: Three Films

I LOVE watching films and have a very mixed taste but three that I like that are all different genres are:

- The Notebook - makes me cry every time. Noah is the perfect guy in this.
- Anchorman - so random. So very random.
- Gladiator - a fantastic film. I go through all sorts of emotions watching it; tears, anger, joy...

I would  obviously recommend watching these if you haven't before!

What are three that you love?

All about: The Extreme Job Hunter

Shared by Rebecca U at 9:00 AM 0 comments Links to this post
www.theextremejobhunter.com
This is Dan.

He is 27.

He is ginger.

He is looking for a job.

He is the extreme job hunter.

I met Dan several years back when I was at University in Leeds, as was he, and we became pretty good friends. He cracked me up straight away at a party, trying to fit fitting into a child's super man costume. He always had a great sense of humour and he is very creative and unique, so when I saw that he had labelled himself 'The Extreme Job Hunter' and has made his CV into a Top Trump card, in order to land himself a good job, I couldn't help but smile.

Check out his crazy stunts in order to get himself a job HERE.

So far he has:

- He has made a little video resume featuring his daughter...



- Put himself up for auction on eBay...


- Started a competition for anyone that can help him find a job. If something you do leads to him receiving a job he will buy you an iPad mini with his first pay check



- Made a pinnate, filled it with sweets and enclosed his CV in it and then sent into an office



- What's next??

Lets face it, if I was an employer, these unique and fun ways of applying for a job would really  impress me - it would certainly help to make him stand out from the rest of the usual black and white CVs. And his background is in advertising / social media so he would be a perfect fit for a job like that - surely??

Can you help my mate Dan?

If so email: theextremejobhunter@mail.com or you can follow him on Twitter @xtremejobhunter - you would win an ipad mini so think its definitely worth a try... right?
