What I Do When I'm Alone.

Alone time is so important. Let's face it, it's a necessity. Don't get me wrong, I miss my boyfriend like crazy when we aren't together, but I also know that I am not reliant on him to be there all the time. I recently went to the cinema on my own and it kind of unleashed in me this 'it's not so bad/I'm a strong independent lady vibe'.

01. I tend to watch the worst films and the most embarrassingly bad television when I'm alone.. And then lie profusely when asked about my viewing habits. However, to keep up the charade of only seemingly watching 'grown up' television like University Challenge and News Night, it is VERY important to hide tracks. Unfortunately, I have yet to discover how to get rid of the 'Continue Watching for Joanne' menu on Netflix.

It's just a dead give away.

02. I always cook the worst meals.That's if you can call them meals! I too am guilty of a Jelly Squirms and Terry's Chocolate Orange Ice cream dinner. But when my boyfriend asks, my standard response is 'Oh.. Something healthy'. But I often say this whilst pushing the protruding Cadbury's wrappers further down the side of the couch.

03. I often pretend I can sing like Maxwell... Or worse, Mariah Carey. I do sometimes wonder what the neighbours must think.

04. And whilst singing out of tune I tend to unleash my inner Beyoncé.

I love nothing more than a good boogie when I am on my own.

I completely make up for the fact I don't dance in public, and then some. At those times, no one could ever convince me that I had two left feet.

05. I also like to dress like I'm colour blind. I know I shouldn't admit this, being a beauty and fashion blogger and all, but I can't be Instagram ready 24/7!

My comfiest clothes just so happen to be my most hideously uncoordinated.

06. And never have 'night's off' been more important, and needed then when you start to notice that 5 o'clock shadow on your top lip. This time alone is made for us girls to do all our unconventional beauty routines like bleaching, epilating and trimming.

07. I always speak to myself.. because no one appreciates my genius, or humour more than me.

Including the cat.

09. Sometimes nights off are the perfect time to perfect the selfie. Sometimes I scratch number 5 and do the complete opposite. I will try on a couple of different outfits, practice my feline flick and take a dozen and one pictures.. Which I later delete because they are all foul!

10. And finally, blogging! Any blogger with a full time job, house to run, and cat to feed will understand the difficulty of organising time to write new posts, or take some pictures.

How do you like to spend time alone?
