Plead to Katie Price – Stay single for a while!

kp1I’m sure that most of you by now would have heard that Katie Price has split from her latest husband, stripper Kieran Hayler…I mean what with Katie revealing the news herself from a string of tweets, the news isn’t going to stay secret for very long.

But if, by some chance, you haven’t heard yet. Katie revealed earlier this week that she was divorcing hubby Kieran after finding out he was having an affair with her best friend Jane Poutney for the last seven months.

She wrote on her Twitter timeline: “Sorry to say me and kieran are divorcing him and my best friend jane pountney bee having a full blown sexual affair for 7 months.”

The model added:  “No human being deserves this especially being 6 months pregnant. Worse pain in the world.”

Now don’t get me wrong, of course I feel sorry for Katie. I can’t think of anything worse than being six months pregnant with someones baby and then finding out that they are cheating on me with my best friend. It is absolutely unacceptable and I don’t know how Kieran manages to live with himself.

What I do also feel though is that there has been a pattern in the model’s life, that she needs to change. The fact is she can’t be single. As soon as one relationship ends, she’s with some other guy a few months or even weeks later. Call  me cynical, but I don’t know how you will be able to find a meaningful partner who you genuinely love and who cares about you that quick.

It seems like instead of healing after a relationship fails and thinking about how things went wrong, Katie just jumps into her next relationship. It is always with some tanned ‘hunk’ who I guess she thinks other women will be jealous of too. I mean, I’m not saying that people don’t have a type & muscly, tanned men can’t be nice. However, she just seems like she always goes for this stereotypical muscle man who screws her over.

The exception is obviously Peter Andre. I think we all know that they had real love and shared something special. However I don’t think Katie is over the relationship whatsoever, even after all these years that they split, so I think she feels like she always has to get one up on Pete and try to make him jealous. By doing this she is rushing into relationships that she isn’t fully committed too.

This would be fine, except fkpor the fact that Katie is a mother. It is not fair that she keeps introducing her children to these new men only for them to disappear a little while later and confuse them all over again. Plus, they don’t want to see their mother hurt and she is definitely going to be that if she keeps getting into relationships with these kind of men. They will just see a pattern of men coming into their lives and upsetting their Mum, which is not a great basis for their view on relationships.

The fact that she is now bringing another child into the mix is also worse. She is going to be stuck with Kieran her whole live now, seeing as he is the father of her unborn child. All she is doing is causing herself unnecessary upset by getting involved with these men.

However, if she was single, I feel like Katie would actually be able to concentrate on herself and her family. She has beautiful children and tons of different work projects she can concentrate on – she needs to realise she doesn’t need a man to complete her happy ever after. She would also find that people would respect her so much more for this. I mean, all she is ever in the paper for at the moment is for being pregnant, having a row with Pete, or breaking up with someone.

So this is my plea to you Katie, stay single! For the sake of your children, career and wellbeing!



Diet Tip #2: Cut out the diet coke!

no diet cokeFollowing on my last diet tip post about what you should eat, this post is all about what you shouldn’t have if you want to stay trim.

I used to think diet coke was a saint. No calories, tastes nice & fills you up because of the bubbles = skinny bod right?

Well… it may not add inches to your waist instantly, however it could in the long-run.

I used to religiously glug diet coke at all hours of the day. As a mid-morning pick-me-up, after lunch, when I got home from work, hell even at 9am in the morning some time. I couldn’t get enough of the stuff.

Obviously I heard that it isn’t great for you because all of the additives & stuff, but I thought that if it wasn’t affecting my waistline, why did it matter?

So, coming from me, the world’s biggest ex diet coke addict, let me tell you now… STOP DRINKING IT.

I decided that it was going to be my new year’s resolution to cut out the stuff – and guess what? I actually did! Yep, ever since that clock midnight on the 1st Jan 2014 I have been staying away from the fizzy stuff.

And why was this? Well I knew I was drinking too much of the stuff and hearing that it was bad, I decided I wanted to try swapping to other drinks such as water or fruit juice.

What I found was that the results were amazing…

Within about a week I had tons more energy and I mean tons. I was waking up brighter, getting everywhere on time instead of ten minutes late and feeling a lot more energetic.

This made me a lot more happier as I was achieving things and being productive. Feeling less tired also meant I was less likely to snack and more likely to get on that treadmill!

I’ve been keeping it up for the last two months and honestly it feels great. I would honestly recommend it to anyone as it’s so worthwhile in my opinion and has had a big beneficial impact on my health.

Let me know if you’re a religious fan of coke, whether you’ve tried quitting – I would love to hear your feedback!

Boxing day sales: Why you should skip the high street and just stay in bed!

a-funny-bed-quotesNow I’m sure people are waking up this morning and getting ready for another day of eating lots of yummy goodies and drinking faaaar too many Xmas spirits.

However, if you are like me, Boxing Day means only one thing… SHOPPING!

Yes those legendary Boxing Day/January sales have now started – hurrah! Now back in the olden days, we would have all been jumping in the shower right now, frantically rushing to get down the high street to make sure that we were the first ones with our hands on that half-price sparkly Topshop top before the blonde next to us nabbed it. Or pushing a granny out the way so we can grab those reduced luxury Christmas cards for next year.

However… it has now all changed. Yes, we have this amazing this called online shopping (hallelujah). Although this is probably the worst thing to ever happen to my bankcard, it is also the best thing ever to happen to my wardrobe. You see, I cannot STAND sale shopping on the high street.

I mean, you walk in a shop and it is literally just like a jumble sale. Usually I just grab anything that has my size on it, pay and get out of there before I end up with an elbow in my eye. This ends up with me getting home and questioning myself to the reason about why I bought those inappropriate gold hotpants which I will never wear in my life.

mince pieWhereas, online shopping is a totally different ball game. Sat in your comfy bed, or on the sofa, it is so damn easy. I mean, you don’t even have the disappointment of something not being in your size, as you search for this on the handy sidebars. Plus, you can do all of this in your jammies, whilst you have a mince pie and a glass of champers in your hand – heaven!

I mean sure, you are not burning off as many of those calories stamping down the high street. But hey it’s Chrimbo, who even cares about that now!

Now there is the argument that this kind of behaviour is “killing off the high street”. I do agree with this to some extent, as I would hate not having a high street, due to the fact it is one of my favourite hobbies to go shopping for some new clobber on the weekend.

However, I think that for Boxing Day, you’d be stupid to leave your comfy home to go shopping, seeing as you can do it on your own settee with that new ‘Despicable Me 2’ DVD playing in the background.

So go forth my friends, eat, drink and shop for those amazing bargains to kit out your 2014 wardrobe with!

And have a very merry Boxing Day x

Please note: I wrote this article whilst in a onesie, drinking a glass of champagne. 

Get your boyf to cut his hair Kelly O!

Now I’m not one to judge when it comes to looks, HOWEVER I do have a recommendation for Kelly O‘s boyfriend, Matthew Mosshart


I know that sounds harsh, but he just should. I mean, look at that gorgeous face of his – those piercing blue eyes and his chiseled cheekbones. But they’re all being ruined by the never-ending curls.

Now if he was a female, I would be dead jealous of the luscious mane. But he’s a guy for christ sake. I don’t care what anyone says, if you’re a woman, there is no way that you would want your boyfriend to have longer hair than you.

Think of all the products he must have to use to keep it that shiny as well. I think it would turn me right off if I saw my guy rubbing some Frizz-ease into his hair.

I think it’s time that Kelly needs to get tough with her man and tell him those locks need to go. Even if its just for the sake of getting her hairdryer back!
