Hi! My name is Laura(Lou or Lil to my friends) and I'm a freelance writer, I'll be writing about everything on here, what I get up to, what I'm working on, also intending to fill the blog with quotes old and new that I feel are profound, thought provoking and heartfelt! Just articles that I think you guys may find interesting. Also short poems, I don't intend putting anything of great length on here because people just get bored. Short and snappy is my thing!
And finally another thing I will be blogging about is music, it's another passion of mine, so I'll be filling you in on favorite songs, recommendations. AND whatever else I come up with in the future!
If you have any quotes or songs or anything you'd like me to blog about then just email me with the info and I'll be happy to post it! Also I'm a freelance writer as I said, so if you like my material....hire me!!!
Keep smiling!

Always remember.......

In todays society, people have forgotten, humility, kindness and understanding. Can you imagine what the world would be like if people cared a little more about others? A smile at a stranger, chatting with someone new online, taking the time to listen to someones problems. Not to find a solution, but just to sit and listen. Maybe there would be less crazy in the world and more compassion! It really doesn't take anything away from you, or cost you anything to think about others as well as yourself!
There's a saying.....next time you see a stranger in the street, smile..it might be the only bit of sunshine they get all day.
How true is that?! I'm no saint, but I do try and take the time to think about other people, and I can't tell anyone what to do or how to act, but think about it, just by asking someone. How are you? It could change that persons whole day/week/month. Hell even their whole year!
Keep smiling!

Baby Brain!!!

This article is mainly for new parents, or parents with little ones running around, but daddies should read it too...and then you can help the mommies!!!

Ok, so you've had a baby, and most mothers out there have BABY BRAIN for at least the first two years of their childs life right? So what is baby brain?? You eat, sleep and breath your baby!! You have no idea about anything that's going on in the world, all your focus is on your child, and rightly so as any good mother will tell you! But it isn't selfish or wrong to want a little time for yourself to be you instead of Mommy!! And it doesn't make you a bad mother either!
Let Dad or Gran have some bonding time with the baby, even if it's just an hour!
Take a shower, sleep, watch the news, catch up with friends online! Which by the way is a life saver when you have little ones and can't get out much!
Just for a little while, do something that has nothing to do with your child! It may sound harsh but even after just one hour of doing this, you get your baby back and you're even more prepared for anything your child throws at you! It improves your parenting because you are less stressed and frustrated! And your baby senses when you're happy and relaxed, which in turn makes them happy and relaxed!!!
So Ditch the baby brain for at least an hour a day, you'll be a better parent for it I promise!

Keep smiling x

Why do women love bad men?!... PT2.

Well ladies, We've already admitted to having a very soft spot for bad boys!! And everytime, without fail, we end up trying to change them in to the "settle down" type of man.

I'm not talking about the asses in todays society that think it's ok to hit women, and other unspeakable acts! I'm talking about the guys who are as hot as hell, but refuse to settle, who cheat, or openly move from woman to woman. Why do they act like this in the first place I hear you asking me??? Well I have no proof and I'm no shrink but I have my own ideas.

Maybe they act this way because, at one point in their lives they were actually kind of decent? They've just been hurt and refuse to let anyone hurt them again, so they say they don't believe in love and are quite happy going from woman to woman for the rest of their lives. Truth.......nine times out ten, they're lying.
And if they're not lying then maybe they've never been inlove, and it will just hit them like a ton of bricks when they finally do! Or finally, maybe it's just the way they truly are and won't ever change!

And I finish with a little message for all those bad boys out there.

Imagine being in your seventies, in a nursing home, still trying to get laid because you're lonely??? NOT A TURN ON!!!

Keep Smiling.x

Why do women love a bad man?! PT 1.

Oh Ladies, why oh why oh why do we do it to ourselves!?! I don't care what your race, age, marital status or religion. At some point, wether you admit it or not we have all fallen for at least one "bad boy".

You know the type of man, the one who will never settle down, who is actually a really nice guy but only to his friends, never to the women in his life! The guys who make it plainly obvious that they are only interested in one thing, or the guys who tell you they love you and then go park their car in someone elses garage!

We know we shouldn't go near these guys, we know it will end in tears...usually ours! BUT WE STILL DO IT!!

Is it because we feel we can change them? Or because we need adventure and attention..no matter what kind! Or is it because by being with these kind of men, it in turn makes us feel slightly bad and sexy? Be honest with yourself now girls. I'll be honest, the thought of being a bad guys girl is a turn on, of course it is! "Oh he's mean, he does all these bad things but it's me he wants". Secretly that's how we think. And usually we end up falling for them big time and being heart broken! But why? We knew what they were like in the beginning. Women LOVE the idea of being with a bad man, even the married, happily married women, we all want or have wanted this at some point. Seriously are we insane! Nope, not insane it's just the pure adrenaline rush we get from it! It makes us feel attractive, rebelious, dangerous, sexy and all the things we women have trouble feeling on a normal day to day basis. But you're with a guy who's got a reputation, and you're carrying a dirty little secret around that makes you feel all these things! TURN ON!!!

There's nothing wrong with this, in most cases it can be good for you...as long as you don't fall for them. You know they have no intention of being with you long term, they just want some fun, so don't dive in with both feet, just dip your toe and test the water!

In part 2...Why are men BAD?!? "Why do they get off on going with woman after woman? Never having an emotional connection? Well I have my own ideas on that too!!

Keep Smiling.
