Room With A View – #SinfulSunday

Have you ever walked into a hotel room and thought this would be perfect for a Sinful Sunday picture? 

Well that happened to me this week and this is the end result.

Progress – #SinfulSunday 

As soon as the email for this months prompt dropped into my inbox I knew exactly what picture I wanted to reshoot, This Is Me

Here is the original image

That picture and sharing it means so much to me, I would not change anything about why I posted it or any of the positive (and negative) comments I received about it. 

The reason behind me wanting to reshoot this image is simple, progress! 

It has been 19 months since that original picture was taken and so much has changed with me, geographically, physically, mentally. 

The majority of this change has happened to me with the past 4 months. I moved to Australia, I started working out. (I have lost 8.1kg /17lbs in 8 weeks) I have removed people from my life that were very damaging to my mental health and self esteem and have embraced people who know the true meaning of kindness and friendship. I now know that I can really achieve anything when I set my mind to it. 

When I leave this town in the middle of nowhere in a weeks time a completely different person to the lost broken girl who arrived here three months ago will be getting on that bus. I couldn’t be more proud of myself. 

Who would of thought living in the Australian outback would turn me into a whole new person, a better person, a happy confident person. 

This is me…now!

Always Wear Sunscreen – #SinfulSunday 

Even though I followed the instructions of the Baz Lurhmann song and wore sunscreen, spending the day yesterday in and out of a lagoon in the Aussie sun has meant I am now a lovely shade of sunburnt pink. Today I will mostly be slathering myself in aftersun lotion.

Perfect Fit – #SinfulSunday

Bra shopping is always such a pain in the ass. First you have to find a style and colour that you like and then see if it’s available in your size. You then go try it on and it’s just horrendous. 

I recently had the joy of trying to find a new bra for Australia. I have always worn padded bras, mainly for comfort as my 36E breasts don’t really need extra padding! 

But I was struggling to find one that I liked and that fitted well. I took pictures as I tried each bra on and sent them to a very special friend, of course he liked them all, but I didn’t. 

Then this wicked blue number caught my eye, as it wasn’t padded I was sceptical about how it would fit and feel. Much to my joy it was a perfect fit.

Purple Rain – #SinfulSunday

Honey I know, I know, I know times are changing

It’s time we all reach out for something new 

That means you too 

You say you want a leader 

But you can’t seem to make up your mind 

I think you better close it 

And let me guide you to the purple rain 

I only want to see you, only want to see you 

In the purple rain

Milestones – #WickedWednesday 

The prompt for this week’s 200th Wicked Wednesday is The Best. 

Now I’ve already written about the best blog posts of 2015 (including a section on what I think were the best WickedWednesday posts of last year) 

I also included a few of what I think are my best posts so it doesn’t seem right to go over all of that again. One thing I have noticed is that a few of the best posts I think I’ve written have been created when the days have been so dark and have been feeling at my lowest.

That brings me on to what this post is going to be about. As this is a milestone in the history of the Wicked Wednesday meme it seems slightly appropriate to write about my personal milestones.

I have had over 61,000 blog views.

This is my 218th post.

This is only the 6th time I’ve participated in Wicked Wednesday!!

In 4 weeks (this post was originally started on Wednesday) I will be quitting my job.

In 8 weeks I will be catching a plane to Australia for at least a year (who knows how long I will actually stay away for). 

It has been 375 days since I wrote this #sinfulsunday post.

That post was a massive thing for me to do at the time and some of the backlash from it really effected me. I tweeted about it earlier in the week and me doing that inspired this post by Cherry Tart Blog.

I’ve always wanted to do a year on post, a “This Is Me Now” kind of thing but as the 1st anniversary of this post drew ever closer I didn’t see the point in it as physically nothing has really changed. Yes I have been eating healthier, I have been running, if quite intermittently, I have lost just under a stone in three months (which really isn’t much, actually I think it’s pretty shit but slow weight loss is meant to be more maintainable so go me!)
My body may not have changed but my mind set sure has. I don’t hate myself half as much as I use to and that I think is the biggest milestone I will ever reach. The changes in my thought processes has been helped massively by the sex blogging community (and a very special friend who loves me just the way I am and tell me so pretty much everyday). Don’t get me wrong I still have down days and dark day but they haven’t been nearly as bad or as frequent as they use to be.

I’m going to use this milestone Wicked Wednesday week to say a massive thank you to each and everyone of you especially Rebel and Molly (who hosts my other favourite meme #SinfulSunday) You two keep this community alive and together. For that I am forever grateful.

You will never truly know how much you have all helped me and when I’m in Australia I may not be here anymore but you will always be with me in my heart and being the positive voices in my head.

10 Weeks 3 Days – #SinfulSunday

10 weeks and 3 days!

That is how long I have until I fly to the wonderful world of Oz.

In January I set up a GoFund Me page asking for some help, it was a big decision to ask for help with something that means so much to me. I originally set the goal to £250 not thinking I would ever reach it. But thanks to 6 amazing,  incredibly generous people I have exceeded that target. I did say that if I reached my target I would do a travel themed Sinful Sunday and this is the best I could come up with.

Can’t Stay Away – #SinfulSunday

I know I said I wasn’t going to blog again but have you ever taken a picture and just thought that it would be so perfect for #SinfulSunday that you have to share it?

I have.

I took this picture while “chatting” to a very special friend and his reaction to it tells me that even though I might not be happy with my body but other people sure are.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 44,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 16 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

All I Want For Christmas

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past 3 weeks you may have heard that Exhibit A has been running an Awesome Christmas Erotica meme. (Check out the prompts here and all the entries here.)

The prompt for day 17 was the classic Mariah Carey song All I Want For Christmas Is You. It’s a great song but it’s a bit too cheesy and happy for my liking. I was going to write a story based on the following version of the song.

It’s so much darker and that’s suits me a hell of a lot more. The story was going to be about unrequited lust and obsessive desire but sadly I just couldn’t find the words. (If I do eventually find them I will write the story.)

Instead I thought I would look back on an old post and write an update on it because all I wanted for Christmas last year was the following year to be filled with great sex! Let’s see how that turned out.

Last Christmas Day (I was alone then too) I wrote a post listing my sexual resolutions for 2015

1. Have more sex – Last year I had sex twice, this year I have had sex 3 times so I guess that’s an improvement, not by much though!

2. Have better sex – The first fuck of this year was ok, the second fuck was bloody awful!! And the third was exactly the kind of fuck I wanted more of this year and next year, any year for that matter!

3. Get a sex toy – Now this resolution is one I triumphed in even if I do say so myself. It started off here with thanks to sextoys.co.uk and the series I did called My First Sex Toy Reviews. I discovered the joy of electrically powered orgasms and would recommend anyone who hasn’t tried them to give them a try, it might take a while to find one that works for you but there is a perfect match out there somewhere for everyone.

4. Be more confident – I’m still working on this one, will let you know if I ever gain confidence.

5. Exploring the Dom/sub side of me – I had a tiny bit of successful with this, I had an extremely brief fling with a Sir during which I learnt that I do like to take sexual commands, I just need the right guy to take them from.

6. Having sex in places other than a bed – Nope still only had sex in a bed.
  

There will be no resolutions this year, sexual or otherwise. I just want to be happy and that is not something that will change just by promising myself it on January 1st.

So this is me over and out. I might be back at some point next year but I do highly doubt it.

Be happy and more importantly be kind to each other .

Much love and goodbye,

Charlie
