A Normal Day in the life of Sweetestmoondust

I'm going to talk about what I do on a day-to-day basis blog and what I wanted to show you.  First of all, I set the alarm for 8 o'clock. The night before, I get up between half past eight and eight o'clock. because of my disability and it depends on what I've been up to. 

So if I am tired, then I ignore the alarm and carry on sleeping and feeling better. However, on an average day, I get up at about eight to eight-thirty and then do my skincare. Then I will get dressed and if I find it difficult, in the morning, for example, I've had a bad night, I'll ask my other half to help me because it's easier than actually doing it and quicker. 

Although I can do a lot of it, not all. Then I'll go downstairs and have breakfast.  breakfast will normally be a Herbalife shake or a breakfast bar or something like that. And sometimes I have cereal. Depending on what's going on is not always the same and then I will get on with a thing. 

Bit me, time is just a bit of silly me time. I'm playing a game or two on the phone, and my other half does a bit of what he wants to do for the morning. Then I will do more of my stuff, like starting to do my radio show. Like talking for the radio show for the day. 

I get my show for a week ahead. So I'm ready for that as well because it doesn't always happen that I can be available. So I tend to do it a week ahead and then I will work on my blog or have a bit of lunch. And then I'll go back and do what I need to do. 

As I said, it'll be so in the afternoon and after lunch. It'll be like having, social media work doing all the stuff like that for my blog and my podcast and radio shows. And also working on my blog and see. what my books are up to because I also write books, so they need to be advertised. 

I try to do a little bit of advertising for that as well, so that's all having to be done. And then it's usually about half-past four. I end up doing things like work clearing up, getting it cleared out, and getting ready for the kids. And when they come back from school because they've already left before I even get up most days because it's just easier that I then my other half has got one thing to cut focus on rather than three. 

So it's easier and then we'll have dinner together. All of us, you know, try and catch up on how the day's been doing what we've got. You know what we've done for school. What we've done each day and then we will be doing. Um, meanwhile half like to catch up together. 

We might have time to watch a movie or we might do a but you know, I'll read a book rather and he'll be watching a movie quietly or will be doing stuff for a couple of streamers that we know on Twitch and support them out a bit as well. They are rog3rbot and martocodo

And so that's what we do sometimes, as well. And that is mainly what I am doing on an average day. And if I'm not doing those sorts of things, it could be that I'm taking care of myself, bits and pieces. 

For example, yesterday it was my nails

and I have cerebral palsy. I can't have my nails painted by myself and I need someone else to do it. The same goes for other bits and pieces that I need to get done. So, I do that for myself, by someone else because I can't do myself care for that section. 

So it doesn't matter. So um and I'm hoping you enjoyed this sort of quick chat about what I'm doing on a day-to-day basis because I want to maybe do more like this and a few sort of reviews about it. So thanks and I will be putting pictures up maybe in the notes for what I'm reviewing. 

If I do a review of something, um, for example, I've got a few shopping hauls that I want to put out. So whether I'll be on my Instagram page or my Twitter page as well or Facebook even and that's the way around things as well that I will be using. 

So I have to do all those as well as advertising doing those hours, I get. So, you're talking more roughly about 10 in the morning, I'll start and finish around half 4 pm as full with a break and, and so I could be doing anything and everything between running the house and doing the social stuff that I like to do and advertising cerebral palsy showing that. We do things without too much of a hassle, but we can have a relatively normal life despite having difficulty of some sort.

Discussing Things and Yet Chilling

  I'm doing another quick post sitting in the cafe. Just chilling out waiting for a family member again. Nevertheless, it's been a quiet day. Family things are being slightly sorted out, hopefully, things will get better. 

The stuff that's going on will be sorted. It will be written about in another post at some point, but right now, life is going the way it should do and I'm grateful for what has been going on and knowing what's being in the future!

Because it's a long slog for what I need to be done up doing another post at some point about all this but not right now because I don't have the time as I have to make time for other things like my radio show, my blog, and my books. 

So I'm doing everything all at once as well as keeping a family. So it's crazy but that's how it is at the minute. I know that whatever happens in the future, it's going to be okay but it is worrying at the time. But anyway, um, that's that bit sorted out For now. 

And I'm gonna be doing another post in about, but this will be only used for a blogger thing, but not I'm not sure yet. I'll see how this works out. As things are going a bit crazy. And I need to sort out a routine. I'm  slowly getting there, and it has been a bit crazy as I've said, an 

It's okay. Those leads are getting there but we're not at the final hurdle yet we're getting there slowly. I'm hoping that's it. Will be fine. But who knows exactly what's going on yet? Um as it's not sure what is going on So we'll see what is happening next. 

I've been discussing things where things have gone a bit higledy pigledy and nd it's not right a minute. Um, because of the way things are going. Um, however, life is going to get there and we know things are going to be. Okay. So, I'm hopeful and I know that what I need to do now is got to be separated into more things. 

And I have got to separate things and not hold on to things.

Like what Mel Robbins often says, She's such a good podcaster, author, etc, she's helped me mentally. I've just caught up on an Instagram live. I haven't watched all of it. I haven't got time but it's been really good and she's just kind of sorted things out a bit more things, more clarified so that I can say, okay! 

Right, I can let go of that and realise, that someone else that I know needs to let go of certain things as well. And they've got to not forget that their future doesn't have to be completely covered by the past. I am a little bit excited about the future and also a bit scared. It is ok though I'm not alone in this.

Is This Going To Be Another Groundhog Year? Again!!

 It's still a lockdown in February. Nothing has changed since the beginning of Christmas 2020. Except everything has changed there are millions of people who have had their first immunisation jab to the virus. Yet millions are still waiting for their first.


You are not the only one who is struggling!

Remember everyone in this whole world is in a similar situation to yourself. So if you need to talk to people then do so. You can always contact me using email if you feel that you have no one to go to. Use your phone or the internet. If you can.

Listen to your favourite books or podcasts. Such as Sweetestmoonduststyle. If you don’t haven’t any then binge on your favourite movies or shows. By DVD or by streaming such as Netflix or Amazon Prime.

My favourite movies and shows are as follows:

Just to name a few.

My fave books are as follows:

Although I read various types those are my go tos for comfort. I can put my mind in those places and be a visual observer of the story. Rather than going somewhere new and pay more attention to what is going on.

Therefore, this is my safe place mentally although I do read several different types of books.

Another thing to do is to listen to positive music. This is my Spotify List with music from the 40s up to now.

Or listen to some amazing positive podcasts. The following are my go-to positive shows if I really need a boost Be Positive Stay Positive and Every Day Positivity. Another Helpful podcast I listen to is Happy Place and this is done by Fearne Cotton. She also has written books that I love, giving tips on the inside chatter, negativity etc.


It's ok to be in the mood that you are alone but you must realise that you are not alone. A way to resolve an issue would be to help the elderly or disabled locally if you can. But if you cant just ring them up so that they know that tyhe6y are not alone just like you.

It is different living with one or more people because you can talk to that person or people. There are times when you want to be silent and just recharge your batteries. This is a good idea especially as you sometimes clash emotionally and verbally.

You’re not the only one who is feeling like this right now. Everyone is to some degree. Remember that your well being is the first thing to think of before trying to help anyone else because if you don’t look after yourself then you will not be able to help anyone else.

So take a deep breath and take that first step to your self-care before anyone else.


I am writing this towards the end of the month and tonight the UK prime minister is laying out his next move for here. Hopefully, things will be heading to a positive future but no one truly knows what is in the future. Even before the virus made more problems for the world.

The virus has no bounds and does not pick any particular race, colour or religion so by looking after yourself and your family. If in a house with other people then ensure that you all work together and get this world back to some kind of normality.

I need to be in some kind of bubble because of cerebral palsy and luckily I am with my family. I miss going out to see my friends and getting fresh air. Winter is drawing to a close, spring is coming at what seems to be a quick pace. This is when I tend to go out more in any case because of the warmer weather and the way it eases my cerebral palsy. I still also listen and read. There are days that I feel completely worn out and just want to do nothing. That’s ok too!

Don’t panic too much and get your inoculation if you are offered it and just carry on protecting yourself and those you love until we get back to some kind of normality because I very much doubt that the world will be the same again.

4 Things You Can Learn from Studying Makeup of Princess Leia

 So it's May the Fourth. "May the Force be With You" as the saying goes.

What are you doing in this unprecedented time? Are you having an impromptu Star Wars Party without the costumes?

What about the simple makeup look that Princess Leia wears in the film "A New Hope"?

In the beginning, it was the seventies and there was nothing quite like it. George Lucas made a change in the world of the movie world. Yet makeup-wise nothing is as quite as iconic as Carrie Fisher's makeup and hair.
Carrie Fisher was the daughter of one of the old school Hollywood Power couples of the 50s, Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher. While also being a comedian and actress She also was the mother of Billie Cathrine Lourd who is in the later star wars movies.
Carrie died of cardiac arrest on 26th December 2016.
In the first scene that you see Princess Leia, she is wearing heavy black eyeliner yet neutral eyes with a strong pink blush and nude lipstick.

In the next scene, we see her being held by Darth Vader and the makeup she is wearing neutral greys as a subtle eyeshadow with pale blush and pink lips
In other scenes, she is wearing subtle dark shades of shadows with brightness with the use of lipsticks. Due to the darkness of the story, the makeup lightens the mood a little.
The final scene is when she is wearing orange, brown eyes with again a neutral blush and bright lipsticks as it is when she is giving medals to Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and Chewbacca.
These looks are very simply done yet can be done badly. 
Chose the right tones that fit your eye colour as well as your skin tone. Otherwise, they can come across as stark and shocking which is not what I perceive the makeup was mean to do in the movie.
Make sure you remember to have fun.

Fresh chapters with cp.

Hey there, Remember how I've been talking about my move and the process whilst having cerebral palsy? Well, I'm excited to announce ...
