Monday, 27 January 2014


Internet world, I must apologize. I have been slack in the blogging department of my life, and completely pushed aside my blogging resolutions for 2014. *slaps self on the hand*

Sometimes we get into a slump, and to quote the words of Dr Seus, 'Unslumping yourself is not easily done'.

For the past few weeks, I have wandered into a slump, and as I obviously don't carry a map book and there is no data signal for my cellphone in this particular slump, I got lost. And stuck. Don't fret though, as I managed to see past the hazy horizon of my slump, and catch a glimpse of what may lie ahead.

I wanted to write this post, to tell you all to get out of your slumps, or at least make a conscious effort too. Sometimes we can get stuck, and sometimes we can wallow in self pity and genuinely think that NOBODY understands or has been through this themselves. Instead of drifting into that negative zone, try jumping into the positive zone, and remember that everything happens for a reason. Yes, you may not know the reason straight away, but I can guarantee you will find a reason one day.

So drag yourself out of bed, eat something nice and healthy, and get on with your day. Make a plan, a to do list or whatever floats your boat. But get something underway, and have something to look forward.

Over and out.

Christmas, alcohol and future plans!

I dont know about you guys but the fact that we are 11 days into 2014 scares me slightly! We are speeding ahead, and if you blink you may get left behind! 

Christmas was a few weeks ago now, but here are some snaps of my day! 

Foooooooooooooooood, so much food. omnomnomnom

Hammock selfies. Sah good. 

Compulsory alcohol consumption. 

My sister and her priorities. 

Arts and crafts! 

Santa came and left his load all around the tree! *cries with laughter at own crappy joke*

Exhausted, twas a long day

Princess Alexandra and her double present!

Now for the exciting part! 

About a million and one years ago, when my sister and I were just kids, we created a tradition. And I am proud to say it is still around today! 

The spoilt child audit - to be completed once all Christmas presents are opened and all on your bed. 

Rules - Each item must be photographed, whether this is one group photo or individually. All items must be within the frame and visible. 

If you cannot document via photos, then a list will do.
  ~side note, I still have my spoilt child audit list from when I was 7~ 

So internet lovers, I am telling you about this for two reasons. 

1. To let you know about all of the reviews that are happening! 
2. I kind of want to make this a thing, let me know if you do this with your family too!
Spoilt child audit '13' 

Get exited folks! Look at all the goodness to review in that photo! We have lush products, perfumes, makeup, alcohol, shower goodies and all the goodness and joy!

Please note, chocolate will not be reviewed as it has been eaten.

So get excited, let people know and stay tuned! 

Lots of love

Bucket list '2014'

I am officially ageing. I didn’t quite realise this until my birthday a few days ago. I turned 21 *hurrah!* and yet I went to bed at 10pm that evening. And it was a Friday. Don’t judge me folks! Some people might call this lazy, others might call it mature.

My sister and I call ourselves the most extroverted introverts, we love LOVE love to socialise and go out. But we also love LOVE love to spend time by ourselves and hibernate. It’s a catch 22, stuck between a rock and a hard place. Socialise or sleep. 94.5% of the time sleep wins. 

So this year I have decided to challenge myself, I want to push my boundaries, throw myself out of my comfort zone and create some crazy memories.

I, Jessica Gibson, challenge, you, Jessica Robyn Gibson, to complete a list of 21 insane, crazy, adrenlin filled challenges.


Bucket list ‘2014’

  1. Skydive at a higher level than my first
  2. A bungee jump (This scares the bejeezus out of me, how can I willing do a skydive, but not jump off a bridge?!)
  3. White water rafting
  4. Waitomo caving trip
  5. A wine tour! (I have never been on one!) 
  6. Ziplining trip on Waiheke Island!
  7. Horseback riding (on a beach, with violins playing in the background)
  8. A fishing trip! (Sah easy to do considering NZ is the fishing place to be)
  9. Zorb and free fall thingy ma jig in Rotovegas
  10. Expolore my own country and roadtrip 

I need more ideas though!

Challenge me to do something insane!

Stupid holidays and life choices

You may as well start calling me the Grinch, or Scrooge. Whichever you like really, take your pick! 

As far as I am concerned, Christmas should not happen this year. I am just not feeling it. Christmas is literally around the corner, and I am not excited, I have no inclination to be festive or to get into the holiday spirit.To be honest,  if I had the choice I would pass on Christmas this year, in fact I would pass on New Years and also my birthday. I just cannot be arsed. The effort, the stress, the weight gain. Pointless. Why not forget it all exists and just relax. 

This year will be the first year that I am working straight through the holiday season. I know it sounds spoilt, but I really am quite dissapointed about the whole thing. I think its because not only is it Christmas, and then NYs, but it is also my birthday. I was the child that wished my parents reproduced a little bit later than they did, because having my birthday at the very beginning of Jan sucks. Mum and Dad, if you are reading this, July would of been a better choice. Just sayin'. 

And I will be turning 21. This is the year I really need to sort my shit out. And it scares me! I will have to be an adult, and make proper decisions instead of silly ones here and there! I need to focus, and direct my life so that I have some kind of future, and I dont want to. What I want, is for someone to magically fix it for me. Someone to pay off all of my debt, to buy me a house, to finish my degree and do all of lifes boring things. Whilst I sit in Hawaii drinking Malibu and coke. (I think I am still a little bitter about not receiving my Hogwarts letter) 

I just feel exceptionally mediocre. Life is just average at the moment, nothing seems to be working or going how I want it to go. All I want to do is curl up and hibernate till this passes. I wish I could do something that I loved, and I wish I could have an amazing career instantly. I think this is where you go, ' You can, you just have to work hard!'. Yes well I don't want to work hard thank you very much. I work hard every day, and its not getting me anywhere. 

However, if you are feeling  like me, rather average and just a bit over life, treat yourself! A good friend told me the importance of treating yourself and I honestly feel like this is the best advice ever. We need to treat ourselves, WITHOUT FEELING GUILTY! If you don't treat yourself, what do you have to look forward to? This doesnt mean eating all the poptarts in the house whilst watching Harry Potter. That is not treating yourself, just an FYI. 

Apologies for the rambly post, but thanks for reading!

Poptarts and Harry Potter

Guys, I don't want to be an adult anymore. I am currently lying in bed, munching away at a pop tart and ice cream combo, whilst watching Harry Potter, and I cant help but wish that this was my life everyday. 

This past week has just been one of those weeks I wish I was a kid. So many stresses, and I just don't want to deal with any of it. I would love to have a little tantrum, throw all of my toys and have a nap. 

I was catapulted into the adult world when I was a teen, and for any young teenagers out there who think that being a grown up is totes the most amazeball thing ever (Yes I am down with young-un lingo) THINK AGAIN. When you have excruciating tooth pain, how will you pay for it? When your phone breaks, how you gonna get a new one? Are you going to pay for your own internet? What about rent? And food? 

Yes I can legally drink myself silly, and yes I can go clubbing. But trust me, its gets old fast. You wake up one day, and suddenly getting drunk off your tits just isn't as appealing as it was, and clubbing becomes too noisy. Before you know it you will be in bed on a Saturday night, at 7pm. planning tomorrows nights tea.

So, rant aside. IT IS DECEMBER GUYS! So so close to Christmas time! I will be posting Christmas themed blog posts in the upcoming days so stay tuned, and don't eat all of you advent calender chocolate in one day. Trust me, its not worth it. 

Lots of love

Wobbly bits and Pineapple lumps

Skinny, slim, slender, fit, hot, beautiful. That is what society determines beauty to be..

In order to be pretty, you need to be a certain weight. Well sorry society, but I disagree. I believe if you are confident and happy, then who gives a flying f*ck if you ate an entire tub of ice cream last night.

People are so focused on the ‘perfect’ body, and it is downright unhealthy. Torturing yourself day in and day out, not eating one single carb, drinking a million litres of water, starving yourself, it is pointless! At the end of the day live your lives. You only have the one, and why not enjoy yourself.

Now don’t get me wrong, I love food, there is no denying it. I love pineapple lumps, and reeses pieces, and cookie dough… *drools*. HOWEVER. Moderation people! I allow myself treats and treat days, but I do balance it with good stuff.  I am not advocating a completely unhealthy lifestyle, because you will feel worse for wear. Your body needs vitamins, irons and all that jazz. I just wanted to let you know, that it is okay to be a bit wobbly. I am not a skinny person, and of course I have days where I wish I was a bit firmer. But my wobbly bits are what makes me, me! Embrace your wobbly bits, Love your cellulite, and indulge! People love you for who you are as a person, not for your thigh gap.

So enjoy your weekend, eat and be jolly, and if anyone says anything about it, eat them too.

P.S if you haven't tried Pineapple lumps you need to. Amazeballs.
