Mads Mikkelsen is a sexy man

Mads Mikkelsen is a sexy man

Look at that face. Look at those pursed lips, ready to be kissed. Look at those sultry eyes. Damn, Mads Mikkelsen is a sexy man.

I came to the realisation that I found Mads Mikkelsen attractive once I started watching Hannibal (which I hope gets released on Netflix, please!).

I felt a fuzzy feeling down below and it felt nice. I wanted Mads Mikkelsen to be with me.

He used to be a gymnast and dancer too. That is so sexy. I bet he can do the splits.

Call me you Danish dish.

Why I chose carpets for my flat

Posted by Sam

I've had a few messages from people asking me why I decided to get carpets for my flat instead of some cheaper flooring, even though I was struggling to even afford them! And to be honest, they were really expensive to buy and have installed. But so far, they've been totally worth it, as I'm always nice and warm even when it's freezing in Glasgow.

I got the carpets from Allfloors Glasgow, and had them installed by a local man who one of the other students recommended. So far they haven't been too hard to maintain, as many people said they would be. But that might just be because I'm a complete clean freak who tries her hardest not to spill anything in her house! Plus I don't have pets (although that could change soon hopefully)!

The main reason I chose the carpets was because the weather in Glasgow is always freezing! I've even heard of a phenomenon called 'The Glasgow Effect' which is when people who live in Glasgow have a lower life expectancy and are generally more likely to be ill. Hopefully I avoid that one if I keep my carpets!

Anorexia and me - How I overcame my biggest hurdle

Posted by Sam

It's been 7 years suffering with anorexia - both mentally and physically - but I can finally say that I have beaten it. I'm still not 100% there in terms of my weight, but mentally I feel strong, and the issues that I had with my body still linger slightly, but for the most part I'm ready to leave this chapter of my life behind.

I've been fortunate enough to have huge support from my friends and family since I first realised that I had anorexia, something they all accepted long before I had. My boyfriend has been supportive too and quite incredible, especially considering that there were long periods of time when I didn't even want him to look at me.

I guess this is what I wanted to tell you guys about, the importance of having support. You might think that nobody knows you better than you do, but I've come to learn how wrong that is. I spent a huge amount of time convincing myself that I was fine, and that I didn't need help. But once I learnt to accept the help and advice that others were giving me, I immediately started to notice improvements in my health.

This advice doesn't just apply to anorexia sufferers. I truly believe that any eating disorder can be helped immensely with support. I also found myself participating in quite a few forums and Facebook groups with other sufferers, which helped me to get through it.

Sorry if this post seems a bit random but this is something that I've needed to address for a while.

Moving to Glasgow

Moving to Glasgow

I recently moved to Glasgow from Chesterfield, and I wanted to detail my experiences to help others deal with this stressful time! I've basically moved straight into a new flat that we completely unfurnished, so had to try and figure out a way to make it look nicer.

I started by filling it with a few sofas that I bought from the charity shop down the road - much cheaper than a typical furniture shop, plus it counts as a donation to charity (so I feel good about myself!) Then I went to the local DIY shop to get some paint for my bedroom, as that looked pretty bare and needed a touch of colour. I'm going to start Glasgow University next week so I have plenty of time to paint the walls (I haven't started yet!)

Next up I decided to try and tackle the flooring. My main problem was that my flat was absolutely freezing (probably my least favourite part of living in Glasgow) so I decided that it would probably be best to install carpet in my house. My mother took me into town and we ended up buying some carpet tiles from Allfloors Glasgow, which have been pretty good so far. They seem to keep my flat pretty cosy and the carpet keeps my feet warm so I'm happy. The bathroom already had tiles so that wasn't a problem, and even though they're a bit old I will sort them out another time!

The last thing I had to sort out was the windows. This was the most expensive part of the refurbishment, but I figured I'm gonna be in Glasgow hopefully for a while, so I want to make sure that it looks good. But the other important reason for deciding to do this is to make sure that the flat is safe. Glasgow is a great city but I've been advised by a lot of the students at the university to take care at night, particularly around my area, which sounds a bit ominous. Luckily I don't live in a rough area (I'm fairly close to the university building) so should be fine (don't stress mum!)

Thats's all of the DIY work that I'm going to do for now in my flat, stay tuned for any more updates!

Welcome!

Posted by Sam
Welcome!

Welcome to my blog! I'll be posting regular updates about my life and everything that comes with it. What does that mean? It means I won't just be writing about the good times, I'll also be writing about the bad times. This is important because I want to give a balanced viewpoint of my life to all of my Scottish readers (I assume most of you are Scottish). This is also good for me because I use blogging as a way of venting my frustrations and getting rid of depressing thoughts. Getting them out into the open is definitely the best way to deal with them!
