Thank you- FINAL Day #24

When I started this blog, one of my main aims was to gather, not a large, but a friendly audience. I didn't want masses and masses of views but instead, views which actually had a impact on people. I'd much rather have 10 people read a post and genuinely think about it rather than 100 people just skim read something I've put actual thought into. And I think we're getting there

Christmas Cakes- Day #23

I'm very passionate about cake- I eat a lot of cake and so feel I'm fairly well qualified to recommend certain Christmasy cakes and baked goods to you which I personally enjoy at this time of year. I will point out that, as I have mentioned before, I suffer with coeliac disease so any cake I have must be gluten free. This could therefore effect my opinions on certain cake because the gluten free variation is not as nice as the ordinary version

Christmas Recommendations- Day #22

I'll admit- I'm really running low and scraping the barrel here. It's 22nd December so all day's are taken up with shopping, wrapping, cooking, organizing etc. and I have family and friend things to do in the evening (I know, actual socializing happening..) so I've not entirely planned this post. To be honest, the words are being written quicker than I can think about them so, if I sound mad, that is why..

Christmas Collab with Katt!- Day #21

After yesterday's disgraceful post, I hope this one is much more full of excitement for you.
I've mentioned for a while now that I have a few collabs lined up and this is one of them! My lovely friend Katt and I sent one another some Christmas based questions and I'm going to answer the ones she sent me on here and you can go here to read her responses to mine ^.^

Meh...- Day #20

I really have nothing to day today.. I've spent the majority of today posting cards and watching Christmas films so there really is nothing to report. It was my first proper day off in about a year which was long overdue but also really lovely- it does however mean that I have nothing to post today..

Explosion of Cute Christmas Goodness!- Day #19

Today was a truly Christmasy day. I want to upload a few photos instead of writing lots today if that's alright? I took a beautiful walk through a little forest this morning with the 2 most adorable members of my family before returning home to put the decorations up and watch Home Alone. Could it honestly get any more Christmasy?

Fifteen Festive Favourties- Day #18

The gorgeous Tom Fletcher did a wonderful YouTube video where he discussed his Festive Favourites and I want to steal his questions and do it myself if that's okay? They'll be quite quick fire I think because I've answered many similar questions in the past 17 Days..

Top 5 Christmas Films- Day #17

A big part of Christmas is obviously festive films! Generally, I'm not a film person- I have a stupidly short attention span so tend to doze off after about 20 minutes but Christmas films are much different. There's something much more amusing to me about a film being set in the snow and I adore all the stereotypical Christmas things which are crammed so tightly into these films, they're almost leaking tinsel

Manchester Christmas Markets- Day #16

I've promised you a follow me round style post for about 2 weeks now and today is the day for said post. I popped down to Manchester City Centre today to visit the market stalls and so I'll write a few bits about it if you're interested..?

Monday, 15 December 2014

Pink hair day!- Day #15

Yesterday I mentioned about how today, I was going to add a bit of pink to my hair and today I did such things. I'll just tell you a few little bits about how I did it/what I used etc. and then if you have any questions, feel free to write them in the comments.

A Few Updates- Day #14

Hello again! Second post today, lucky you eh? I don't have a specific subject to discuss but I just thought we could have a nice little Sunday natter about things that are going on...

Human Kindness- Day #13

I'm so sorry that this post is late! Whilst publishing it last night, my laptop completely crashed and would not even let me move the mouse, never mind access the internet. Here is Day #13- Enjoy!

Yesterday I said that I was going to probably post a Top 10 but scrap that idea. I've been thinking about something which I've only really been properly aware of for the past couple of years but something I truly think everyone should be an active participant in. It's good, old human kindness

Christmas Decorations- Day #12

First thing's first, HAPPY BIRTHDAY MUM! Today, my mum celebrated her birthday and so we all went to my Grandma's house to celebrate which was very lovely. One of the most exciting things though about it being mum's birthday is that now, the rest of my family start getting excited for Christmas!

Thursday, 11 December 2014

Festive Spirit- Day #11

It's a slightly embarrassingly short post today so I'm really sorry if you're disappointed- I hope if you knew the evening I'd had, you'd understand. I do have a lovely one planned for tomorrow though so please just be a little patient with me and it'll be very much appreciated.

The Christmas Tag- Day #10

I don't normally do tag posts but firstly, this one's a Christmas tag which makes it super exciting and secondly, I'm blogging for 24 days- sometimes I run out of creativity! I saw this on and so I really recommend you go check out her blog because it's awesome and she is doing blogmas also so throughout December, you won't be short on great posts!

Christmas Confessions.. - Day #9

There seems to be an awful lot of Christmas things that I'm really not keen on but go along with because it's Christmas and it's tradition and I would like to share a few of these with you..

Purple Christmas Make-Ups- Day #8

So this is scary- I'm doing a make-up post for once which is so foreign and odd for me and I'm not 100% comfortable with it because I'm not an expert but I said I'd do one about a week ago and I don't go back on promises etc so lets get cracking..

Sunday, 7 December 2014

Sunday Loves- Day #7

I'm feeling really happy at the minute and I'd quite like to share this happiness with you all. It's uncommon that I actually feel positive on a Sunday evening- I'm very unsure why?- but I'm genuinely really happy and I think a lot of this is maybe down to it nearly being Christmas..

Christmas Shopping in Liverpool- Day #6

I did my first proper Christmas shop today which has gotten me so excited and happy for Christmas Day ^.^ I'm not going to say what I got because I know some of the people I bought for, will read this and obviously I don't want to ruin the surprise so instead I'll just discuss my experience of the different shops- okay?

Friday, 5 December 2014

Christmas nonsense- Day #5

I wore my first Christmas jumper today and this excites me more than New Years Eve! I chose a grey one with Santa and a big white pom-pom on it cause if you're going to wear a Christmas jumper, you might as well go all out.

Just a Quick Hello- Day #4

I feel yesterday was a lil too lengthy so today I'll stick to just a short paragraph. I suppose this will just be a little update about what other posts you should expect to see throughout blogmas so you know whether you want to come back or not ^.^

How I spend Christmas... Day #3

Christmas is a time for traditions and personally, I don't feel like Christmas would be complete without them- whether they are with family, friends or just your personal traditions, I believe they are an essential part of the celebration. Everyone has their own specific way of celebrating and I wanted to share mine with you today on Blogmas, Day #3 (I've given up on trying to think of an alternative name and just gone with 'Blogmas' instead like everyone else does- I think it's for the best)

Winter Make-Ups? - Day #2

Happy 2nd December! This post shall only be short and it's more of a set up to another few posts but it's only day 2 of this Winter/Christmas blogging thing and I'm not going to miss it out on the second day! Tomorrow however, I plan to do a much better post which I'm sure you will enjoy lots..hopefully

Welcome December!- Day #1

Happy 1st December! And welcome to my the first day of my Christmas blogging thing (I really should give this a name, shouldn't I?!). I'm going to start with a list- because who doesn't enjoy a good list? The title of this list is pretty self explanatory, Top 10 Christmas Songs..

Christmas Project?!

I want to do a Christmas project! Think 'blogmas' style but with a little less commitment and much shorter posts. Although I do want to write and upload something everyday, I don't want it to be in a 'follow me round' type way because for lots of December I will still be in college and I just think it may get a little too repetitive. I'm thinking more along the lines of miniature versions of my normal posts, telling you about my favourite Christmas things (e.g. Favourite Christmas films, Christmas songs, traditions etc.), maybe a few 'follow me round' style posts if anything exciting is happening and perhaps a couple of competitions if you're keen?

My Opinion on a Big Matter...

There's quite a big issue that I've wanted to write about for quite a long time but I've never really known how because it's quite a big thing that I'm not sure I'm ready to tackle yet and that's gender equality. I still don't think I'm fully ready to discuss the whole subject in full depth but I experienced something very recently which has both riled and inspired me. So go grab yourself a brew because this is going to be a bloody long post.

How to: Winter

I'm doing a post which isn't Disney related for once! WOW, this is exciting- I feel like an actual grown up ^.^ Instead because the weather's getting cold, the evenings are so dark now and Scott Mills had played his first Christmas song on the radio, I think it's fine to accept that Winter is almost here and therefore I want to be festive and write about the winter!

Disney Diary- Au Revoir!

This is going to be my last Disney Diary post I think.. Partly because I don't want to just write Disney things- I have a whole host of other things I want to write about- but also because I've exhausted the list of Disney posts I wanted to write and therefore don't have enough material to carry this on much longer ^.^

Strong, not Skinny.

As you know, as I've not shut up about it for the past week, I went away recently. The plane journey wasn't very long but I bought myself a magazine (Heat to be precise) for entertainment on the hour long trip and there was an article in it which really infuriated me. The aim of the article is to promote women being 'strong' and 'athletic', not 'skinny'. What a load of bullshit.

Disney Diary- Do's and Don'ts

This'll be a shorter post today I think because yesterday's was quite chunky and I have another non-Disney thing I really want to write about. I'm going to write the post tonight and publish it tomorrow morning I think because I don't want to bombard you with too many things. Anyway, I have a few Do's and Don'ts to do (and not do) which I would like to share with you all.

Disney Diary- Haul

Wahey- I'm finally doing that Disney Haul I said I'd do ages ago, yay! I'm sorry it's taken so long, I couldn't get the photos over from my phone onto my laptop until yesterday and because I'd done 3 posts in 3 days, I didn't want to bombard you with blog posts to read. Anyway, after that ramble, I'll get on with it..

Disney Diary- The Best Bits

After yesterday's slightly negative post, I'll try to be extra, super positive today and give you all my best bits about the trip. The haul I mentioned will happen, however I'm struggling converting images so, although that will definitely happen, it can't be today unfortunately.

Disney Diary- The Bad Bits

Let's start on a low and get high, sound good? There was a few things I noticed whilst in Disneyland- mainly in the queues- which I wasn't really that impressed by and these are the things I would like to share first. A negative start probably isn't the best way of doing things but it should be quite humorous (hopefully..)

Disneyland Paris

About an hour and a half ago I landed back in England after spending the past 5 days in Disneyland Paris. Although now I feel all sad, I've had the happiest few days and want to write some posts about my time there.

Wednesday, 22 October 2014


I don't want to make this post too long because my last one was only uploaded on Sunday (sorry about that.. I updated a few things and didn't want to clog up your feed) but the weather's making me really happy at the moment so I thought I'd write a little about that- cause I'm British, this is what we do!

Sunday, 19 October 2014

Dear Scott..

I want to write a little something just to say how much of an amazing job you're doing on Strictly! Never have I smiled more than when, last week, you emerged from behind a clam, dressed as a lobster in full red faced make-up and gave 150% to the Disney Classic, Under the Sea.

Top 5 Disney Characters..

I feel like doing a fun post today because I'm feeling happy but for no reason and my childish side tends to come out in those moments. Plus, I've been a bit complain-y lately and I don't like being negative for too long. I did consider doing a rant about Alex Day (because what an idiot!) but I don't think he deserves my effort or attention- so instead I think I'll tell you my top 5 Disney human Characters...cause that's fun, right?

Staying Motivated

Recently, I've been feeling really uninspired and not at all motivated to get through the mountain of work I have to do. I'm applying for University really soon and even though I'm super excited, writing my personal statement has really been getting me down because it means I have so much more to do on top of my usual college work. Obviously then I have non-college related stuff to do and it has reached a point where there is so much to do, I have no motivation to even start. Normally, I'm very hard working and dedicated to everything I do because I'm normally really passionate about the work I'm doing but lately, it's all just gotten a bit much...

Dear Sam Pepper...

Before you read this, I just want to say that I wrote this before the accusations of not just harassment, but assault, abuse and rape came out. Therefore it may not be as respectful to victims as it should be but I do still believe Sam Pepper is scum and should not be allowed with at least a 1 mile radius of any living organism.

The Liebster Award

The extremely wonderful DontBurstMyBubble tagged me to do The Liebster Award which is lovely considering I've never been properly tagged in one of these tag thingamajigys...

Is this a 'favourites' post?

I shouldn't be sat in bed, practically holding my eyelids open at 11:30pm on a Wednesday night, but here we are. If I'd thought ahead, I should have had emergency posts planned for days when I am super busy and genuinely don't have time to write blog posts. But I'm not that forward thinking, so here we are.. hi everyone!

Happy Seasons!

Today is a good day because today is the first day since about March time that I'VE WORN A COAT! Autumn/Winter clothes are my absolute fave; jumpers, coats and scarves make me the happiest human ever. So when I opened the window to see grey clouds and dull skies, my little heart sung ^.^

Dismissing Disney Stereotypes

I get quite a lot of stick for still watching Disney films- probably because I'm not still 4 years old- but still, who doesn't love a good Disney Princess film when you're feeling sad, right? Anyway, I've seen so many things online about how much of a 'bad example' these princesses are to young girls and how 'anti-feminist' they are and it really gets to me because this is coming from people who haven't seen the films in the past 10 years.

Wednesday, 27 August 2014


I want to start a little project.. I'm quite unsure how long it'll last but music is a big passion of mine (listening to, not playing) and I'd love to share my music taste on this blog somehow- especially because it varies a lot. What I was thinking was, there'll be a new tab at the top called Music or Playlists or something similar and every week I'll post a new playlist that I've been loving for a particular occasion. Keen?

Three selfish wishes

I went away for three weeks which is why the latest posts haven't been so great.. I completely forgot that internet doesn't really exist abroad so I'd have to set up automatic blog posts. Unfortunately, it was 11:30pm, less that 3 hours before I had to leave to board a plane.. Anyway, I'm back now so hopefully *fingers crossed*, the quality will improve

Wednesday, 13 August 2014


So YouTube got big quickly didn't it? And just like everybody else, I happily jumped on the bandwagon and now, over 60 subscriptions later, I'm hooked.. For some reason, I'd rather watch 10, 3 minute YouTube videos than a 30 minute TV show. I thought I'd share some (probably about 5) of my favourite YouTubers with you, especially as some of them need more subscribers cause they are great! ^.^

The Five People You Meet in Heaven

I have a new favourite book. And I want to tell you about it because oh my goodness, it's so good!

Emojis I wish existed

I'm a huge fan of an emoji.. if lots of the people who read this weren't Android users, my posts would be full of them. There are however, a few I wish existed- especially as some we currently have are completely useless (like who really uses the blue square- anyone?)

This idea is completely NOT my own by the way- I got it from Hazel Hayes who I believe saw it on Tyler's channel. I'm also not going to list 20 because I think it's a little excessive, but we'll go for 10 and if it's popular, I can always write a Part 2 in the future.

1. I really want an emoji which says, 'I'm just going to make a cup of tea, I will be back soon
I drink LOTS of tea- like more than the average Brit- and therefore spend lots of time next to the kettle. Unfortunately, our kitchen is too far away from the WiFi to get a good connection so I don't take my phone with me when I make tea. The kitchen is also a place FULL of distractions e.g. food, letters and cake so I'm normally gone for about 10-15 minutes which, when having a conversation, I imagine is very annoying. An emoji here, perhaps a little person pouring from a teapot/waiting by a kettle would be appropriate?

2. I want a giraffe- cause to be honest, I just really like giraffes and feel they should be represented by an emoji 

3. I want an emoji which is widely recognized as fangirling. There's the face with heart eyes and the crying face and multiple tongue sticking out ones but I don't feel there's any which are that strong a combination of all three to really portray exactly how I feel when I see a new picture of Harry Judd

4. There's no Disney emoji right? We need one of those

5. A vomiting emoji. Why doesn't this exist? Everyone throws up right and therefore we need an emoji to signify this

6. There's not a cheese emoji and I don't understand why this isn't a thing. I don't think there's anyone who doesn't like cheese so there should be an emoji to represent one of the best foods. If a loaf of bread is special enough then cheese should be too

7. "I've just dropped my phone on my face" emoji please. I need people to know that if my replies to their messages are a little unusual, it's because I'm still slightly dazed after being smacked in the face by a phone weighing the equivalent of a pile of bricks.

8. A bunch of balloons. The single red balloon looks lonely and just a bit pathetic. I want a massive bunch of 'em, think Up. In a variety of colours too- like enough to carry a small child if there was a strong gust of wind. 

9. I'm pretty sure Tyler mentioned this in his video but there has to be a Beyonce emoji- she's ruled pop since forever, is worth millions and has one of the most beautiful daughters in the world. Surely the icing on the million pound cake would be having a emoji based on her. 

10. Similar to the first one, I want a variety of hot drinks. After recent disputes about the generic 'hot beverage' emoji, I feel we all could benefit from maybe a tea emoji, coffee emoji, hot chocolate emoji etc. all separately instead of a generic 'hot beverage' 

This was a bit more rambly that normal- but I kind of like it ^.^
If you think of any that you would like that I have missed, comment down below..

If you read this far, I love you muchly and hope you're having a lovely day
Cheerio! Xxx

Being thankful...

People don't appreciate one another enough, and that makes me sad.
Think about the last time someone did something nice for you and the last time you said thank you. Did you actually mean it- or did you just say it because it's basic manners?

Growing Up

Urmmh, so this is late..
I've very sorry I didn't post last night. I've had a stupidly busy week, which I know is no excuse, but I only got round to writing it at 10pm at which point, I didn't think anyone would be awake to read. Again, I'm very sorry and hope it was worth waiting for...

Self Confidence

I feel very uncomfortable and completely out of my depth writing about this but it is something I feel extremely strongly about and maybe my opinion will have some form of impact on someone who reads this?

Friday, 4 July 2014

A lil' update..

As you may have noticed if you come here often, the design and layout has changed. I wasn't really happy with the old design- it looked a little halfhearted- so I've tried to change it up a bit (as you may be able to tell, I'm not amazing with technology but I've tried my best). Although I'm not entirely sure I'm used to the clouds yet, we'll give it a go. It reminds me of Toy Story quite a bit which I feel represents me much more accurately than the purple stripes
Anyway, I hope you don't mind the new blue colours- let me know what you think ^.^
Cheerio! Xxx

Favourite People..

If I'm honest, the only reason I'm really writing this post is to cheer myself up- I genuinely have no other reason. I just feel a bit sad and whilst I was looking through my list of posts I want to write, this idea made me the happiest. I appreciate it's quite selfish and I'm not even 100% certain I'm going to upload it, but I need to remind myself of the people who make me smile; not the many reasons I have to be sad.

Review: TFIOS

I'll be honest, this is the first review I've ever written and I don't really have a clue what I'm doing. I've read other reviews and I think I get the basic idea but don't shoot me if it's a little bit rubbish..okay?

Wednesday, 18 June 2014

Happy Little Things

I've got a few little things that have happened/are going to happen soon that I wanted to write about in separate posts. However I'm a little concerned that if I did write about them individually, this blog will become a little too repetitive and I don't want that to happen at all! 
So, instead I'm just going to pick some of my favourites and cram them all into one big things I've been loving lately post:

Soccer Aid 2014

To be perfectly honest, this post is going to be mainly fangirling over Danny Jones and so feel free to go read another post and I'll be back with something more relevant next week. However, if you would like to waste 5 minutes of your time by watching me try and express feelings without using 'asdfghjkl' or 'omfg', then please do continue ^.^

Opinions on the internet

This week, what I really wanted to write about was the Mcbusted tour 2014. I thought, considering it has just finished, it would be a fitting little tribute to the awesome show the guys have put on for the past couple of months. However, when I started writing it, I began to realize how difficult it was going to be to put my opinion across without causing an argument or offending someone so I've scrapped that idea and instead I'm going to give my view about opinions on the internet.

Top 5 Disney Films

My indecisive personality often annoys both my friends and family and this post is going to demonstrate just how difficult I find it to make decisions. When asked my favourite film, my normal answer is ‘anything Disney’, because who doesn't love a good Disney film? However lately (mainly because it’s a great way to procrastinate) I've been considering which of the animated classics is my actual favourite and have come up with, what I think, are my top 5 Disney films.

Too Much Information

I promised to do some form of introductory  post just as a little welcome to my blog so here we are. I decided on the TMI tag as a little tribute to Carrie Hope Fletcher because if it wasn't for her and The Hopefuls, I wouldn't have started this whole blogging business...

Welcome Along..

Welcome along! I’ve decided to set up this blog, just so I have a space to share my opinions and thoughts on the topics I care most about...
