My Bra alternatives...

Picture sources || topshop.com, newlook.com & hm.com
Edit || By yours truly aka me
Now I wasn't sure I was going to write this post because who would really be interested in it, I could only think of me as it directly applies to me but I thought if I had found a blogpost about this I would have been so happy so this is for anyone that finds themselves in a similar situation. I also thought I share most things with you guys so why not this to? 

Last month and the beginning part of this month I was finding wearing my normal bra's extremely uncomfortable and restricting and was starting to only wear them if I was being seen by people or had to venture outside and even that was becoming lax at times because I was just finding it so uncomfortable and hard to breathe. Now I'm a 34C which I think most would consider a normal size and shouldn't restrict some-ones breathing, but I tried it where I brought 36C's just to see if it would help... it didn't! Sports Bra's really weren't very useful as they are extremely tight as they obviously are made to keep people's boobs in place if they are running and therefore are extremely restrictive too. So I searched for "soft bras" I was finding it was the wire and band on my normal bra's that were the thing that was restricting my breathing but soft bras don't have that. 

All the bras above are wireless and elasticated. In the past few weeks these have been so helpful the elastic band seems to let me breath and I just feel so much more comfortable out in public. I have never been one of those people who is comfortable being braless and I don't think I ever will so these are great for any-one who finds normal wired bras uncomfortable and restrictive like I do. They obviously don't give you the shape and support that a underwire and padded bra would give you but for me that's not what I was looking for, I was just looking for something to give a little bit of support and would make me feel more comfortable outside and they do that. I brought a size 10 in most of these as they don't do the normal cup sizes in them but just so that gives you a size guide.  

Finding nice ones was hard though, there were a lot of horrid ones around but I thought I'd share with you the ones I found and some of the ones I brought. 

1. These 3 are from topshop.com and were £20 each
2. This one is from newlook.com and was only £7.99
3. These two were from H&M and were £12.99

Good things come to those who wait?

Good things come to those who wait? Do they?

I've honestly never really understood this expression and it's why I never say it to anyone. I think what it means is, is good things come to those who preserver because I'm pretty certain multi million pound industries didn't get to be successful by just waiting, but what I mean is Good things don't always come to those who wait. If you do nothing how can you expect anything good to happen if you did nothing towards it? 

In my scenario and countless others there are people who are waiting just like me and once again 1 in 3 of us die, I certainly don't consider that to be a good outcome to all the waiting that person did. I understand why people say this saying to me though because they believe that I'll get my call and that all this waiting will have been worth it. Waiting does make you a lot tougher, it make some things just seem minuscule compared to this one thing in your life that encompasses every other thing. I do however have to say the one bad thing about it is that it makes you more cynical, and a bit mean. I read through peoples tweets and Facebook status's and you should hear some of the things that run through my mind about some of the "problems" I see but because I have manners and am polite I don't say anything. This was one of the contributing factors to why I had to take a break from Facebook because it's not right for me to think those things or think like that because no matter what people's problems are, no matter how big of small they are, they are probably something that feels like a massive problem to them and why shouldn't it? I think at times I just have to remind myself that there're people far worse of than I am if you think about it. There are people dying in far less comfort than I am, who don't have access to the medicines I do, people who are homeless & starving to name but a few and I must count myself lucky and try to look at the bigger picture more often.  

I like to think my transplant will happen because I'm a very strong willed person, I'm someone who preservers through most things I suppose the saying "Nothing worth having comes easy" would probably apply to this situation more than "Good things come to those who wait." Maybe that will be true because maybe if I had, had my transplant sooner say in the early days of waiting I wouldn't have been able to appreciate what it will hopefully be like to have the organs I need. So hopefully all this waiting and the experiences that have happened because of this waiting will have made me a much stronger and appreciative person for it. Although I think 943 days may be taking it a bit far LOL I really don't want to reach 1000 days I think the 900's is good ;-)

Current Life...


I want to write a super interesting post for you guys but I'm afraid I can't. Life has been lovely and boring, I have been doing uni work, drinking tea (decaf) and hot chocolate, watching netflix and lots and lots of Christmas movies. Life doesn't get any more delightfully boring than that does it?

I have been working on my Blogmas posts which I'm super excited to share with you all, some I can't write because they'll be about what I'm doing throughout December but the ones I can write are basically done. This weekend I basically forced my mum to watch all the Christmas movies I wanted to watch because I had just written a Blogmas post which put me right in the mood for Christmasy goodness thankfully my mum loves christmas movies as much as I do and therefore it wasn't so much force as it was just asking her. 

I feel like I get so into Christmas because I have the time to really get into it, does that make sense to anyone else. I tend to think people who have jobs and very busy lifestyles probably just don't have time to get excited about it and it just feels like a ticking time bomb for them whereas I'm just willing the days to go faster so I can enjoy my December. It probably doesn't help that mine and Megan's Birthday is in December and I feel like this year I'm more excited because, my mum, sisters and I are all going to see Michael BublĂ© in Birmingham on the 2nd and then on the 13th all of my best friends will finally be together in my favourite place ever, Harry Potter Studios. It just feels like it's a lot more exciting that it was last year for some reason and I LOVE IT!  

I hope wherever you are you are having delightfully boring or wonderfully exciting lives, whichever you prefer.
