Can we all just admit that Jackie Burkhart ended up with the wrong person on That 70’s Show?

We all know she should’ve ended up with the one and only Steven Hyde. The only two people in Hyde’s life to call him Steven were Jackie and Kitty Foreman, the love of his life and the mother he deserved.

And let’s discuss how awfully Kelso treated Jackie. He cheated on her, betrayed her, acted like a child even though he was older than her, he manipulated her and made her feel insecure. Not a good staple for a relationship.

When Jackie and Hyde got together, it was like two magnets coming together after being apart for so long. Jackie and Hyde complimented each other so well, they taught each other how to be better, Jackie taught Hyde how to love.

Hyde would put his foot down when Jackie got too big for her boots, and Jackie would remind Hyde that he wasn’t trailer trash and that she loved him anyway. When Jackie’s dad went to prison, Hyde let her stay in his room at the Foreman’s house, because he didn’t want her to be alone. Jackie and Hyde have also have a sincere and caring connection, and that is how they love each other. Jackie grew up a lot when she was with Hyde, and Hyde learned what love felt like.

They are soulmates. They belonged together and the writers threw away all their chemistry and passion for what? Jackie to end up with Fez? I did not put 8 years of my life into this show for Jackie to end up with Fez.

Also, may I remind you all that Hyde took Jackie to prom when Kelso wouldn’t? Hyde thought that prom was the most soul destroying event on earth and he STILL took Jackie because it was important to her.

Jackie brought out the fun and playful side of Hyde. They danced together many times in that iconic basement. She brought out the romantic side to him and he protected her with all he had. If this post doesn’t convince you that Jackie and Hyde should’ve been end game, then I beg you to rewatch the show and learn something about real chemistry.

Thanks for tuning in again!

Lots of love, Josie xox

I got an LVL lash lift and it’s the best thing I’ve ever done for my eyelashes…

Saturday, 26th May.

About a month ago, I decided to be spontaneous and book myself in for a new treatment. I had seen on Instagram lots of women getting lash lifts, and I thought I should try it out too.

I don’t wear a lot of make up, truthfully, and the fear of using eyelash curlers is too much for me to handle, especially first thing in the morning before work. I also have really bad hay fever at this time of year, so I am constantly rubbing my eyes, sneezing and having watery eye syndrome. This is another reason why I don’t wear make up very often.

Having seen the results on other women, I knew that it would also work for me. Having long and flirty eyelashes are the dream for most women, yet mine never seem to go the way I want them to.

I went to Pure Serenity – Skin Care by Corinne, as I used to get most of my treatments done there before the spa closed down and moved into Corinne’s home. I used to get my eyebrows waxed by Sheila, eyelashes permed by Hannah, and also individual lashes by Hannah. It was a very close knit spa.

So I booked a lash lift, on a whim. Best decision I ever made.

Corinne was friendly, professional and made me feel super relaxed. She spoke the steps of the treatment as she performed them. I felt comfortable for the entire time.

At the end, my old lifeless lashes were gone, and to replace them, a set of luxurious and full ones.

Beyond happy with the results.

Can’t wait to see how they look with mascara too!

Goodbye for now chacha’s! xo

30 day challenge writing: Day 31 (one more for luck) tell us about your last relationship:

Okay here goes… M and I met in November, he was already living in Scotland and I was in love with somebody else, someone much closer to home. I was visiting my best friend in Brighton, and M was visiting home. We met, we were friendly, he thrust a snake in my face (genuinely, he made me hold a python) and that was it. We spoke for a few days after that, but the conversation dropped, probably due to the afore mentioned guy from closer to home. I didn’t bother with it again until New Year’s Eve.

I’m not quite sure how it happened, but it did and it happened fast. Suddenly I was in a long distance relationship. We did well for the first two months. We both made the effort. We saw each other for weeks at a time more often than you’d expect.

Then something changed. He changed. He no longer thought it was worth the effort. M would disappear for days at a time and wouldn’t see why that was a problem. I wouldn’t hear from him for days and then he would expect me to be happily waiting for him to remember that I exist. It hurt. It hurt a lot.

I thought I had found a nice guy. He was not at all who I thought he was. Even though we broke up on good terms, I have absolutely no intention to be friends with him. I don’t need someone in my life who makes me feel like I’m not enough. I’m done with trying to be someone I’m not. Relationships are about compromising, about meeting half way and M is far too stubborn and selfish to bother.

So yeah, that’s the last time I settle for less than what I deserve.

30 day writing Challenge – Day 29: tell us about a project you are working on?

I’ll tell you all a secret. I have never ever finished a project that wasn’t school related.

I’ve started a poetry portfolio, and not had the guts to finish it because once I finish it I have to publish it.

I started making a scrapbook at the beginning of this year. That now lies abandoned on the shelf in my room because it is too painful to look at.

I have several unfinished pieces of writing in my archives, even plenty of unfinished tweets I haven’t been able to finish.

I’m just a failure.

I just can’t bring myself to finish a single damn thing.
