5 Things To Do When You’re Bedridden

Urgh I don’t even know where to start with this post. I knowwww it’s TMI but whilst I’m writing this (5/5/17) I’ve had gastroenteritis for 48 hours now and you know what? It fucking sucks!

Due to said virus I have been bedridden for a few days, only moving from bed today because the washing up needed doing… Urgh. Yesterday however I stayed in bed all day and I didn’t move unless it was to venture to the kitchen or the bathroom. Today hasn’t been as bad, although I’m feeling really rough at the moment.

So I thought I would write a list of 5 things you can do when you’re poorly and stuck in bed all day!

1. Binge on TV shows you’ve never watched before, or YouTuber’s you’ve recently discovered.

This is definitely one I did all day yesterday (and a little today…) and it was definitely one of my favourite things to do in the day. I’ve never watched Daria in my life until now and I really don’t get why I never had. Everyone I know had told me to watch it because they obviously knew I could relate to Daria. I wish she was a real person, we’d be best friends. xD

As well as binge watching Daria I’ve also been catching up with a YouTube channel I discovered about a month ago called The Crane Couple. They basically go around parts of California (where I assume they’re from…) and recently Japan on a holiday and play arcade games and catch prize in crane machines. This sounds dumb but it’s actually really relaxing to watch! It’s something I find myself watching when getting ready for work in the mornings and settling down to bed in the evenings. Of course due to being ill I’ll been watching them in bed when relaxing. I’ve pretty much caught up now and I love it!

2.  Do something creative that you enjoy.

This can be all sorts to be honest and obviously something you’ll be comfortable doing. At the moment I’m at the start of a project I decided to do for the house, which is cross stitching a massive piece to put in our coffee table. This is the first piece for it which is Haku in dragon form from Spirited Away. I started it a couple of Saturday’s ago but due to being busy I stopped working on it, only picking it up due to being stuck in bed with nothing better to do. I’ve since added some more colour to him since I took this picture. I need to finish it, which I’ll probably do after I write this post… If I don’t fall to sleep that is. 😛

Some other ideas of what you could do is write some blog posts, either by hand or on your laptop. That’s if you’re a blogger. If not get some creative juices flowing and write a story!

You could do some knitting, or crochet. Maybe even some art. Speaking of art you probably have loads of those colouring books lying around don’t you? With at least half a dozen pages left? Well dig them out and get colouring! Make sure to get a good TV show or film on in the background and you’re great to go for a couple of hours. The possibilities are endless with this one though!

3. Have a mini pamper.

Sadly when I did mine earlier today it didn’t quite look like this… I wish it could have of course! I don’t care if this sounds grim but due to how bad I was yesterday I didn’t shower all day… Disgusting, I know. 😛 In the end Dane made me get into the shower today, which I’m glad about as it did help me feel better. I did want a nice Lush bath but meh that wasn’t happening! I constantly worried that I’d be soaking in the bath and then feel the urge to throw up or erm… Poop… Yeah that wasn’t happening. LUCKILY that didn’t happen in the shower earlier today! I washed my hair, scrubbed my face, scrubbed my skin and shaved (WITWOO GET ME! :P). Then when I got out I popped on some moisturising socks and chilled with Dane for a while. Before I got in the shower I decided to paint my nails, which I loved. This wasn’t a huge pampering session for me but the few little things I did different (just the nail polish and the foot socks… yawn…) cheered me up a little.

4. Drink plenty of fluids… AKA water and Lucozade Energy.

I know this isn’t something special to do but you honestly need to. Whether you’re being sick or pooping you need to keep your fluids up… Which is rich coming from me. I swear I drink more when I’m well than when I’m sick. Lucozade is a Godsend for me, always has been and always will. It used to be my go to hangover cure and it’s definitely something I drink when I feel poorly or need some energy. I usually opt for the original or pink lemonade but Dane bought me some orange, which I couldn’t complain at…

If you don’t have Lucozade then your tap is your best friend! I find having my Starbucks sippy cup by my bed has helped… But sadly it doesn’t last long and I found myself crawling to the bathroom quite often to get water. Speaking of I really should have a drink… Sip Sip Sip.

5. Finally and this is important! Make sure you have a slave… 😛

This of course is a joke but if you’re really bad then having someone look after you is always great. Even though for the majority he was at work, when he was at home Dane was great. He cooked me something to eat yesterday evening and made sure I was okay throughout the day. He did the same today as well and kept me company for most of the afternoon whenever he could. This is a jokey point though! Some people aren’t lucky enough to have someone around to look after them, of course I am. This being said I cooked dinner for us today… 😛 So technically I was the slave! Now I’m suffering again! 😛

This was such a random post but it made me laugh to write to be honest, especially the last two pictures I added to the post 😛 I hope it made people laugh too, that was the intention! A bit of a jokey yet serious post… In the sense of I was bored yesterday and today and was going crazy for shit to do! I was so good to hold myself off from window shopping online. 😛

What do you do when you’re poorly and stuck in bed? Make sure to let me know in the comments.

Until next time take care all and I hope you’re not poorly like I am. 😉

Y U NO REVIEW?

I legit made this meme just for this post today! Oh what a sad loser I am. 😛

So regular readers are probably wondering why I haven’t written a review since my Barry M liquid lipstick one in February (link here if you wish to read it), well I’ll tell you.

The main reason I haven’t written any for a while is due to my lips and how fucking sore they have been the past two months. I have mentioned in previous posts how I have had really sore lips and how it was cold sores, alas this wasn’t the case.

After months of trying to get appointments at my doctors and various tubes of lip balm I FINALLY got an answer for what is wrong with my lips, as well as some medication for it.

I have angular cheilitis which is basically another term for sore and dry lips. HOWEVER mine is so bad it has turned into an infection and I’m not using fungal cream to get rid of it. Urgh. I can’t complain though, at least it is starting to heal… Well I hope anyway!

Sadly it appears to have been caused by stress, so I’m hoping when it has healed and gone away that it won’t come back. I am constantly stressed at the moment, which in turn sucks. 😦

So this is why I haven’t been able to review lip products, but it has also prevented me from reviewing any face products due to either not feeling comfortable taking pictures for posts, or I’ve worried about using certain products in case they caused the sores to flare up and get worse. Example of this being face masks, which I have wanted to review for AGES now.

I know this sounds like a huge excuse but the sores on my lips are pretty ugly to look at and due to them I haven’t felt all that confident in my looks lately. Both me and Dane recently discovered Snapchat on an evening out with some friends when they were showing us all the pictures they had taken with the filters. We now love playing with the filters together when we’re at home. We don’t use it otherwise to be honest. Due to being able to hide behind these filters most of the pictures I have shown off online had been of me as a bunny.

I have just honestly lost my confidence in my appearance since these sores came on my lips… Not that I had loads of confidence to begin with. I mean, how do I know someone isn’t thinking, “Urgh what the fuck is going on with her lips? She got herpes?” or even as cringey or crude as it may be for some to read, “Fuck she’s sucked some infected cock if she has sores like that on her lips!”

No this is not even the case and although I doubt most will be thinking these things, some will! People do think things like this.

The sores may also make me look unclean, which I’m definitely not! I’m a cleanaphobe and I like to try and stay as clean as possible, especially if it means I’m leaving the house. I have a wash everyday and if I don’t it’s because I’m not well enough to or I feel like crap. These days are VERY rare.

So that is the main reason I haven’t been reviewing anything lately. I like to take pictures with me wearing/using the products most of the time and due to the sores it has put me off taking any pictures and thus not reviewing anything.

I know I don’t have to show my face when reviewing certain things but I like to do just that to be honest. I like to show off how a lip products looks on my lips and the same goes with showing off how a face mask looks too. I don’t see why more bloggers DON’T do just that to be fair.

As well as not feeling and looking all that well, I haven’t really had much time to write review(s) due to the shifts I’m currently working and I haven’t felt all that great mentally… But that’s for another blog post.

This one I have pretty much rambled! Until my lips are good again I won’t be able to do any beauty reviews, HOWEVER I will be trying to write some reviews for films, anime and manga.

I want to try and make my content more geek and nerd themed because that is who I am and I don’t want to just become a beauty blogger. I want to get the hashtag going for geeky and nerdy bloggers too!

If you’re one of those make sure to drop me a hi over on my Twitter account @maybeecoffee so we can chat all things geeky and awesome!

Sorry again for the ranty post, but I just wanted to set the record straight as to why I haven’t written any reviews lately.

On that note! What would you like me to review? Lip products? Face powder? Perfume? Lush? What? Tell me and I’ll see what I can get up on my blog soon.

Until next time take care all and I hope you’re having a lovely week.
