Boux-tiful Underwear for Boux-tiful People

Ladies I'm about to say something distressing but I want you to bear with me: 


I never thought I would write that sentence but in this case it's true! Men nailed the big "what underwear to wear?" question years ago! Men didn't faff about shoving cheese wire between their cheeks, or yanking it up so everyone knew they were walking around with a permanent wedgie. They didn't demand Brazilian cuts, tangas, high-rise, french, lo-cut, or "girl" shorts- they just went "boxers, yeah, grand, that'll do cheers!" and ladies they were right. All you need is boxers, but more specifically you need Boux Boxers from the folks at Boux Avenue. 

These pants are genuinely the comfiest, cutest, sassiest, everyday pants I've ever owned, so I, them all!! Just look at the cuteness: 


Before you roll your eyes and think "oh God AJ is about to utter the infamous "New Year, New Me" mantra that's always floating about at this time of year isn't she?" I'm not, I categorically promise you that this is not what this  post is about. Because newsflash people, I'm a great person! I'm a fiercely loyal friend, a champion of others causes, a cheerleader, a hard-worker (despite all my doctors advising otherwise), I am an excellent mother to our fur-baby Ginny, I work to raise money for the charity close to my heart, I am a #TopWife :-p, a grateful daughter, I fight for myself, and others, I have well-rounded, well informed opinions and I am funny as fuck! My best friend also mentioned that I'm the queen of the pun so even if you don't believe the rest you have to believe that one! 
Anyway enough blowing my own trumpet (for now, because knowing your own worth is important and so is talking about it) on to what this is actually about...

LoveandOAS Blog Goals 2017

Right, I know it's almost the middle of the month, and everyone else posted their 2017 goals ages ago, but I'm a perfectionist and was waiting for the perfect thing to put in my photos! And now it's here, my photos are done, and here we are :-). 

I have another post coming soon that is kind of a new year themed thing (don't worry it's NOT "New Year, New Me") but this one is all about my goals for the blog this year, so let's see shall we...

It's Only Words...

I recently shared my word for 2017 on Instagram and the response showed me something- words still have most of the power in my life, and I'm okay with that.

I didn't realise that by simply deciding on one word that I was going to touch on, whenever my determination wavered, that I was actually renewing the motivation I have within myself. I don't even think that it's important what word I picked (or what word you pick if you choose to) what's important is what the word represents, what power I give it, and that it means something to me.

The 2017 Bucket List

New Year, New Priorities!

This year that I've decided that in order to continue being the same old great person I am so glad I grew up to be (because seriously I went through so many different personalities to get here) I have to stop relying on other people and things to make me happy. So when my old Bucket List contained things like "Buy a Chanel Handbag" and "Be tweeted/retweeted by John Green" this new one will be about doing things that make me feel better inside and out. 

So going forward I have a new bucket list. One for the year of 2017 and it goes a little something like this:
  • Write down something good/nice that happened everyday
  • Clear out your closet every 3 months and donate at least one bag to charity
  • Plant a memorial plant/bush/flower for Pip 
  • Raise the rest of the money for the Aberdeen cuddle cot-only £500 to go and you can help here #shamelessplug
  • Try a NEW recipe at least once a month- remember how good it feels when you dance round the kitchen with your bowl and spoon!
  • Start a bullet journal- God how I love my new bullet journal! There is a post on my pages coming real soon.
  • Make ice-cream (invent a flavour)- Damian bought me an ice cream maker and as soon as I can figure out how to make dairy free ice cream without almond milk i'll be all over it.
  • Say "YES" more often
  • Don't say "YES" when your body needs you to say "NO"
  • Send letters- real ones to real people
  • Stop relying on other people for your own happiness
  • Stop apologising for being unwell
and there are a few that I just had to migrate from my old bucket list:
  • Visit the Fairy Pools on the Isle of Skye
  • Visit DisneyWorld Florida- 114 Days and counting!
  • Visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter- 114 Days and counting! Haha.
  • Stand on top of a mountain
  • Reread Harry Potter forever and ever into perpetuity
So there we have it, New Year, New Priorities-and alongside my word of the year which I wrote about here it's already shaping up to be a bloody good year :-).
