Top 5 tips on falling in love with YOU

In today's society many young women find it almost impossible to love themselves and their bodies given how mass media presents the perfect body type, i know first hand how hard it can be to look at a magazine or show and see a model with a very petite body and long blonde hair looking absolutely amazing as well as women with almost perfect curves and to know that i look nothing like that used to make me think that then i must be ugly. After many years of thinking like this i decided that enough was enough, i can't change society on my own but i can change my way of thinking.
  1. Stop thinking that to be different is bad!
  2. Learn your strengths and your flaws and embrace them!
  3. Dress yourself in clothes YOU like not what people say you should wear for your size!
  4. Pick 5 things daily you like about yourself, it will boost your confidence x10!
  5. Talk to your friends and spread the love!

  I hope this made you think a little and that you enjoyed reading it

News Flash: New INK!!

This is the Rune Vegvisir the "Norse Compass" i decided to get it tattooed on my left forearm to celebrate my upcoming travel adventures in the UK.
This symbol in the Norse religion/culture helps the bearer navigate through storms, that meaning can be taken in either the literal sense or as i like to think of it, the metaphorical sense.
I believe that this rune will help me work through the hard times in my life and on my life's journey helping me stay true to myself. 
This rune is also special to me as one of my many hobbies is viking re-enactment and a life time passion of mine is and always will be history. 
On the same day i had my finger tattoo fixed as when i had tattooed the original bow in just a plain black line i had stuffed it up so thankfully the Tattoo Artist as Inkantation Tattoo in Deception Bay did a lovely job at fixing it up and giving it a saucy new life with some lipstick red and a cool classic tattoo vibe.

Black Sabbath live @ Brisbane Entertainment Centre 25.04.16

On Monday i got to see Black Sabbath live @ Brisbane Entertainment Centre and all i can say is OMG what a great show the crowd atmosphere was electric, the vocals were above average and the drummer had more energy than the entire crowd combined. The opening act for Black Sabbath was a band called The Rival Sons from Long Beach, California
I really enjoyed the Rival Sons set the singer has a nice dirty vocals and at times was almost making out with the mic which is fine with me ;).

 I went to the gig with my boyfriend Doug and he bought himself a Sabbath shirt what a handsome chap he is showing it off :)

 When it was time for Sabbath to perform the crowd went wild, Black Sabbath performed a heap of the classic songs like War Pigs, Paranoid, Iron Man and Into the void. Ozzy Osbourne was on a roll with a spectacular vocal performance and surpassed popular expectations.

 And drummer Tommy Clufetos gave a outstanding drum solo that really had the audience in awe at his energy and showmanship. At the end of the set a brilliant performance of Paranoid had the crowd losing it, I know i was :)

 Guitarist Tony Iommi threw plectrums into the crowd and i was lucky enough to take one home, as well as Doug. I am planning on making mine into a necklace and overall i have to give it to Sabbath for giving Brisbane an amazing show that was by far not lacking and is one of the best performances i have seen in my adult years so far.

Conquering life's mountains

Last weekend i finally ticked something off my  bucket list and as you may have guessed that was.... climb a mountain and i don't just mean hike up a track i actually climbed a rock face without ropes and it was an absolute thrill and one of my greatest achievements so far. The mountain i climbed up is called Mt. Tibrogargen which is one of the Glasshouse mountains around Beerwah, Queensland. The walking track around Mt. Tibrogargen is approx. 3.3km and it stands around 364m and is the second steepest climb in the range.
 I will admit that the climb was hard at times but the higher up i got, the more driven to reach the summit i became. I am so proud i was able to reach the summit and prove that i can achieve anything i put my mind to be it climb a mountain, travel the world or follow my dreams.

Sometimes Fairytales dont work out like the story books

It has been way too long since i posted and i apologize profusely for that,

I want to begin by letting you all know that my life has undergone some huge changes lately in regards to my relationship status i don't want to go into too much detail in regards to the change as i feel it is a deeply personal matter between myself and my ex. What i will say is that we are both so much happier now and we have decided to remain friends and i wish him all the best with his future endeavors and hope he achieves all his dreams and aspirations.

Secondly i want to let you all know i plan on posting regularly again however i have come to feel that my blog needs a face lift and renew for the new me and as such i have decided to change the name of my blog to "just samecca" as i that is exactly what i want this blog to be ... just me. And as for the "samecca" well my full name is Samantha Rebecca and the idea of merging them together just came to me so if you have any further questions on that don't hesitate to ask.

And finally in the next few days to come i will be revealing some big life changes and a huge personal journey i have coming up so keep an eye out for my future posts

bye for now
