Considering a Boob Job...?*

I know so many people who talk about having a boob job. Some people talk about it for years and never go through with it, while others decide to go ahead and have one on a whim. It’s up to you what you do with your body, but these pointers should help you decide if a boob job is right for you:
You’ve Thought About it for a While
If you’ve been thinking about having a boob job for a while, it could be a good job to look into it a little deeper. It might help you to have a consultation, and find out what results you could expect to achieve with the right surgeon. You may not be able to get the results you dream of, depending on your current situation. Every consultation should answer your questions and fill you in when it comes to the risks. You should have a good idea whether this is right for you afterwards. You should never feel pressured to book in after a consultation!

You’re Willing to Fork Out the Cash
Boob jobs cost a lot of money. It depends on the surgeon you visit, but you should never go to the cheapest surgeon. You should be willing to pay the price to go to the surgeon you like best. Some people set up a payment plan where they pay for the procedure each month, but you need to consider what you’ll do if your circumstances change. Think about saving up the money so you can pay outright. If you’re not willing to do that, it’s unlikely you actually want this as badly as you think. You will need to pay a deposit, no matter where you choose to go.

You Haven’t Got a Whole Host of Other Surgeries Lined Up
If you have a range of surgeries that are on your list, this might not be an issue with your body. These issues are probably all in your head! The best thing you can do is get to a good stage mentally, one where you like yourself. This can be difficult when you’re comparing yourself to every supposedly flawless celebrity on the TV, but if you ever want to feel happy, you have to do it. You can then decide whether you still want a boob job or if you’re happy the way you are!

You’re Healthy
If you’re healthy, you’re a good candidate for a boob job. You not only need to be healthy physically, but mentally too, as mentioned before. A good surgeon should be able to tell whether you’re a good candidate or not. You can find more information online, on sites like Do lots of research to find out if you’re a good candidate.

You Know You Can’t Look Like Anyone Else
Some people go into surgery thinking they’re going to wake up looking like a completely different person. You won’t. You’re still going to look like you, just with bigger boobs. You’re self esteem and confidence might increase, but not if you have your eye on the next treatment. A ‘I’ll be happy when...’ mindset, is not a good one to have. Be happy now instead!

To The Unforgettable Memories Behind The Goodbyes...

Last Thursday marked the start of the Summer holidays and the end of my time at a school I've been working in for a year. The end of term assembly was a really emotional one, saying goodbye to the lovely children and amazing staff in a small school that I've loved. You can see from the photos just how spoilt I was, receiving lovely gifts of flowers and wine (they know me so well), along with cards full of sweet little messages. The children put a huge smile on my face when they sang a song written especially for me. To the tune of C'est La Vie they described me to a Tee. I was blown away by the generosity of the staff who bought me the biggest brightest bouquet of flowers I've ever seen and a set of Annie Haak bracelets. They'll definitely be a good luck charm as I prepare for my new teaching adventure after a much needed 6 week break.

I've just got to keep thinking... Everything happens for a reason.

Spice Up Your Life (Slam It to the Left...)

It's not difficult for your life to get stuck in a rut. You realize that you're doing the same things day in and day out, with hardly any variation in your life. But you don't have to put up with it if you want more from life. There are lots of things you can do to enrich your life by doing something new. You just have to have the determination and the willingness to make a difference. If you want to change your life, try some of these things you can do to make it happen.
Work or Study Abroad
Getting experience of a new country is one of the best ways to change your perspective on life. You get to see a new culture, meet new people and perhaps brush up on your language skills too. You could choose to either work or travel abroad if you want to have a structured schedule but still experience somewhere new. You could study abroad in China in 2015, get a working holiday visa for Australia or even see if your employer has an exchange program.

Go Travelling
If you want to see new places but you don't wish to be stuck in one location, you could save up to go traveling. Go through your home country or visit somewhere else to see more of the world. You could go for a week, a month or even a year or more to give you some time to think about what you want to do with your life. You might just need a break, or it might give you a new perspective and help you choose a new direction.

Pick Up a New Hobby
You don't have to do anything too drastic or expensive if you want to enrich your life. Taking up a new hobby is an excellent way of changing things around. If you're bored, then find something to entertain yourself. You could find a fitness class or sport to enjoy, take a course to learn a new craft or just find a social group to join. I'm eyeing up B-Bounce at a local dance studio as something new and fun to try.

Go Back to School
If you want to expand your education but you're not sure about studying abroad, you can do it close to home. Going back to school doesn't have to mean giving up your job and going back into education full-time. You could take an evening class, do a part-time course or even complete an online qualification that you can fit around your work. I'm starting a post-graduate certificate in teaching dance in September and it's done at the weekend which is perfect for fitting around work.

Start a Business
Starting a business will give you something new to do and bring in a bit of extra cash. You don't have to run it full-time if you don't want to. In fact, it's better if you don't, at least at first. You can start a low-risk hobby business that's fun for you to run, perhaps keeping a blog or selling items that you make. It won't matter if you're not making much profit.

You can enrich your life in all kinds of ways. You don't have to settle for what you've got if it isn't making you happy, so make a change whenever you want.
