  1. The Royal Family… I love the Queen but, I mean just look at him! Prince George is on a whole new level of cuteness!
  2. Inspirational quote signs (I’ve actually lost count how many I own)
  3. Notebooks.
  4. RuPaul and all of her fierce drag queens.
  5. Mermaids, rainbows and unicorns.
  6. My books – Workin’ It by RuPaul, Binge by Tyler Oakley and Life Is Short (no pun intended) by Jennifer Arnold, MD, & Bill Klein (from TLC’s show The Little Couple).
  7. Netflix. Some of my favourite shows include RuPaul’s Drag Race (no surprises there!), Orphan Black, The Big Bang Theory, Once Upon A Time, Orange is the New Black, Pretty Little Liars, Person of Interest, The Good Wife… so many!
  8. Dancing without a care in the world.
  9. Singing without a care in the world.
  10. West End theatre and live performances/gigs.

  13. Brunch. Especially on a Sunday…
  14. Exploring new places and restaurants.
  15. Reading or learning new about new things whilst sat cosily on my bean bag with a nice cup of peppermint tea.

Take care

#162: When you’re unwell, do you allow others to take care of you, or do you prefer to soldier on alone? What does it take for you to ask for help?

It depends what kind of illness I have in all honesty – if it’s a bad cold, I’ll just soldier on alone in my room but if it’s anything more serious and I physically can’t get up, I let/ask others take care of me… if anyone is around that is! Just to clarify as well, my definition of “letting others take care of me” is pretty much bringing meals/drink to my room as I never want to infect anyone else, so will always quarantine myself from the world. I do believe that a little bit of TLC when you’re ill really does make you better faster. I find if I’m ill and I try to get on as normal, the illness annoyingly lasts much longer. So, in my opinion, the less you do the better!
