Do you like him or are you just obsessed with him?



I found out I don’t like him. I was just obsessed with the idea of him, even though I still want him.

A normal person would look at those words and question the mental health of the speaker. But when those words were spoken to me, I had an ‘a ha’ moment.

It made me realise that a lot of the time, women are simply obsessed with the idea they have of someone. Sometimes, we become so hooked on the image we’ve created of our crush that it starts to look a tad bit like an obsession.

So this leaves me with a very legitimate question: do you really like him or are you just obsessed with him?

Here are some telltale signs you may be on the road to the land of obsession:

1. You can’t go a day without checking his Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn (which you purposely set to anonymous) and all the other social media sites you’ve joined to facilitate your stalking.

2. Everything you think you know about him you’ve heard through a third party (in most cases, Facebook). 

3. Your social media spying has become a call for concern among your group of friends.

4. Can you even remember the last time you’ve spent time with your friends? Exactly.

5. His name comes up in every conversation (it’s still a mystery how a conversation about milk ends up being a conversation about him).

6. He is your first thing you think of in the mornings and the last thing on your mind before bed. He is basically wrapped up in every single one of your thoughts – and not in a romantic way either!

7. You’ve lost track of the normal things in life like taking a shower (I joke), but you do feel like you’re slacking behind in college/work.

8. You know his group of friends just a little too well (Remember: you were never introduced to them). 

9. The words  ‘If only he knew how perfect I am for him’ have become something you use on a daily basis.

10. You have continuous thoughts of marriage and what your kids would look like.

11. You seem to be the only person who can see things working between you and him.

12. Your friends tell you you’re obsessed – now if that doesn’t raise the alarm, then I don’t know what else will!

5 Benefits of Coconut Water

Not so guilty pleasure

It’s been a while since I wrote a ‘Guilty Pleasure’ post, never mind a ‘Not So Guilty Pleasure’ so I decided that it was time for me to get around to paying a bit more attention to the nutritional side of things (especially after my new found love  for coconut water)

If you follow my posts on Facebook or Twitter you would know that I am now addicted to coconut water (there’s worse things out there….)

After the Dublin Fashion Festival, where I met the beautiful Darren Kennedy pictured somewhere on the right, I was just hooked on Vita Coco coconut water and then of course I was introduced to KOH Coconut water which is even tastier that Vita Coco‘s (not to mention the difference in price)

The point is, loves coconut water and here are 5 benefits of coconut water that we put together to help you Enhance Whats Yours:

1. Anti-aging: The antioxidants in coconut water slow down the aging process because it helps fight free radicals (can’t go wrong!)

2. Weight- loss: Coconut water is low in fat, calories and sugars and rich in vitamins and nutrients so it can help you feel full pretty quickly. This will help suppress the feeling of hunger

Note:don’t use it as a replacement for food, it’s just something to keep you going until you have a real meal

3. Glowing Skin: Coconut water is considered to be one of the purest ones (after water that is) – it’s great for hydrating the skin and making your skin look more youthful and supple. Some say that coconut water has positive effects when dabbed on the skin but I’d feel pretty guilty for doing that so I guess that’s something I’ll never know……

4. Vitamins and Nutrients: Coconut water is a natural source of nutrients as it  contains  calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium (”more potassium than a banana”), zinc, Vitamin C and Vitamins of B so if you aren’t feeling the best, drink some coconut water and you’ll surly be energized!

5. Flushes toxins out: Coconut water is very beneficial for your digestive system, it helps remove toxins from your body and also provides hydration which will relieve you from any tiredness or fatigue (again a great energy boost!)

Honestly I just like the taste of coconut water, the fact that it has all these benefits (as well as beauty benefits) is just a bonus for me….

Have you tried coconut water yet? If so what do you make of it? Feel free to leave your thoughts below!
