Things I'm Thankful For This Year + Merry Christmas


*HAPPY CHRISTMAS 2015*

If you have read my blog for the past few years or watch my videos then you will know how much I adore Christmas. So in a way I am quite sad that it is almost over however I'm going to be making the most of it. I am well aware that I will be uploading this on the 26th December in the UK however it's still the 25th here in NYC as we are five hours behind. 

Today I went on a bus ride around downtown Manhattan we saw Times Square, 5th Avenue, Macy's and the 911 Memorial among many other things. I also have a cold which has meant that I am in the hotel room this evening as I feel pretty rubbish to put it nicely. I have had a lovely day which consisted of a burger and chips for my Christmas dinner which is unusual I know. I'm now sitting in my hotel room with a few snacks typing this up which is pretty special if I must say.

Merry Christmas
I hope that each and everyone of you have had a lovely day whether you have been drinking cocktails on the beach or sitting by the cosy fire at home with friends and family. I'd especially like to thank all of you who have been supporting me whether it's from day one or just right now. I appreciate each and everyone of you and it's crazy to think that there are some people who have been with me through this journey from the start. I know that you guys will be my biggest supporters along this continuing journey whether it may take me. 

Family & Friends
This year hasn't been  an easy one in fact it's probably been one of the hardest. However I am so thankful for all of my family and friends who have supported me through this crazy year. Like each year it's been full of it's ups and downs but this year has been a lot more hectic than others. You guys are honestly the best and whether you read my blog or watch my videos I don't quite know but if you do Hey!! Sometimes it's a bit awkward talking about my blog and channel with family and friends I'm not quite sure why but I find it so much easier to talk to strangers about it.

Me
I wanted to include a paragraph about me to me so that in a few years time I can look back on it and really remember what I was going through that year. So here goes you should be incredibly proud of yourself this year as it was an extremely tough year. You have overcome so many things this year despite the circumstances you have been put in. 

Thing's like going for an interview with a very successful company, leaving sixth form, continuing with your driving lessons among many more things. You are always stronger than you think and you have a kind heart although most of the time you do wear it on your sleeve. Never regret anything you have said or done as it meant something at the time. 

I thought that I wouldn't include any photos in this blog post as I wanted you guys to really take in the words that I have written I shall be uploading many blog posts over the next few days in relation to my holiday so keep an idea out for those. Once I have uploaded  all of them my usual schedule will resume however I may be making changes to that for 2016 but I shall keep you posted.

Wishlist | Bath and Bodyworks


Hello everyone in today's blog post I'm going to be sharing with you some of the Bath and Bodyworks candles that I would love to get my hands on. As you will know if you live in the UK like myself we can't access these candles as the shop does not ship to the UK yet. However while I'm in New York I'm hoping to pick some up they would probably have to be either the small or medium size as they would weigh a lot and take up a lot of room otherwise!!

How To Survive Christmas Without Getting Stressed


Hey everyone in today's blog post I thought that I would share with you some of my tips and tricks for staying relaxed over the Christmas period. I know that for many of you reading the whole workload of Christmas is split up and we each have our own roles. Whether this be making sure all of the presents are wrapped or there is enough food in the house for all of the family, friends and guests you will be having over. 

Take time out for yourself
This one is the most important in my opinion having some time to yourself even if it's just five minutes will help you to reduce your stress levels. You can do this by taking a relaxing bath after a long day of Christmas preparations, reading a chapter of a book or listening to some music. I always like to take myself away from whatever is happening to relax for a moment. Often this is going up to my room where I can be by myself and clear my mind. 

Ask for help
It's okay to ask for help even if it's something small like asking someone to carry something. If it takes the pressure of of you then why not ask even if you are the type of person who likes to do everything themselves sometimes a little help is needed. I know asking for help sometimes can make a person seem week but if it will mean you are less stressed why wouldn't you ask? I know I would obviously don't ask them to do everything you would because that's not the same. Having someone help you here and there can make a huge difference. 

Prepare ahead of time
When it comes to Christmas time whether it's to do with presents, food or party planning I always like to plan way ahead of time. For example, I have brought all of my Christmas presents for my dad's side of the family as I know I'm going away soon. This means that I won't be stressing out at the last moment to buy all of the presents. I'd say prepare from now even if it's just making a list of the things you need to get therefore at least it's eliminating a bit of stress. I love making lists in general but especially at this time of year I find that they're most useful and help me to get things done.

Enjoy Christmas
Something we often forget to do is actually enjoy Christmas I know from observing people in my family who do a lot around this time of year and then forget to enjoy it themselves. We can help those around us by helping them the night before for instance so that on Christmas day itself they can enjoy it as much as possible too. Christmas is a time for making memories as well as having fun so how can you do that if you are running around like a headless chicken?


Light some candles and drink some tea
This may seem a really easy way to reduce stress but it's one of the ones that I do the most. I love lighting a candle and sitting down with a cup of tea whether it's to read a book, watch a TV show or film I find this so relaxing. You don't need to buy expensive tea or candles you can pick up amazing ones at H&M for example. As for tea I usually just have English breakfast tea with milk or Earl Grey with milk. These teas can easily be picked up at any local grocery store however the brand that you pick is up to you.

How To Be Less Anxious This Christmas


Hey everyone as you guys will already know if you have been reading my blog over a long period of time I suffer with Anxiety. To be more specific I also get panic attacks which aren't fun these mostly happen on public transport. However I can get them elsewhere. So for today's blog post I though I'd share with you my tips and tricks for keeping your anxiety level at a low 1-4 this Christmas instead of being a high 8-10.

Don't do something you don't want to
I can't stress this enough many times I have done something I wish I hadn't because I was feeling super anxious that day. Over the months I've taught myself to cancel things I don't want to do because my anxiety is high that day. There's nothing worse than turning up at an event or something when you're feeling at your worst. I have also learnt that my friends and family always understand when I cancel things because of my anxiety. The one thing they say to me is "nothing's more important than your health" and lets be realistic here anxiety is a healthy issue it's a mental health problem.

Ask questions
Before I have to do something like take a big test or go to a party for example I always ask loads of questions. I always find this helps to put my mind at ease as I'm then going into a situation I know more about instead of being thrown in at the deep end. For me when I can visualize things such as what the venue will look like or whether I'm going to be confined to a small space I feel more relaxed immediately. 

Some examples of questions that I usually ask are:
Who will be there? Do I know anyone going?
How big or small is the venue?
Is it a dark place?
Is there going to be lots of people?

Carry your safe things with you

When I mean safe things I mean things that I carry around with me to make me feel less anxious. For example, whenever I take public transport such as the train or bus I always have cold water, chewing gum, my earphones and a book with me. These things make me feel safer as I know that they are there if I need them. So my point being carry something around with you that makes you feel safe. Even if it's a packet of gum in your dress pocket or an app that you download especially for anxiety. 

People watch
One thing I like to do when I'm anxious is watch what is going on. I don't speak I just observe which I find rather relaxing. People watching is one of the things I love to do I mean I just find it so interesting to see how people interact with other people. I can't quite tell you why it calms me down but it just does watching and not saying anything reserves your energy in a way.

Have someone with you that you trust
Whenever I'm going to a new place or meeting new people the majority of the time I'd ask someone who I'm close with me to join me. This is because not only is it more fun to have people you have a good time with around you but it's also more relaxing for you. If I have my mum or close friends with me then I know that if I do have a panic attack they will be there to help me. For example, if I'm travelling to a new place with my mum she knows to leave with plenty of time in case we have to stop because I'm feeling panicky. 

Have an exit plan
This is our last resort and should only be used when your anxiety is a 10/10. I always like to have an exit plan as none of us know when our anxiety will go from a 3 to 10. It could all happen in the space of five minutes if the train gets super busy for example or the room gets super hot. So I always like to have a plan in case my anxiety rises to a 10. Whether this is the number of the local taxi service, a friend who is free to come and pick me up or even something simple such as a place I can go and relax if I do have a panic attack like a quiet room within the venue for example.

My 5 Go-to Beauty Products At The Moment


Hello everyone happy Monday I can't believe that in around a weeks time I shall be getting ready to head off to the big apple!! I am super excited almost to the point where I can't contain my excitement. Last week was a bit rubbish in terms of blogging I managed to get some videos up but I didn't find any time to sit down and write any blog posts. I've also been preparing many to go up whilst I'm away so I have been focusing on them a lot more. 

In today's blog post I decided to share with you guys 5 beauty related things I have been loving recently. Every one of these are of a reasonable price and can be picked up in either Superdrug or Boots. I've been using many of these products for over a month if not a year as they are just products that I keep on going back to.


I have probably used this moisturiser for around a few years now and it really agrees with my skin. Which is why I use it over and over again I have decided to try a new one in the New Year however for the moment this is just perfect. I love it because it doesn't cause my skin to break out and it drys quickly. The only bad thing I would say about it is that the one which contains SPF takes slightly longer to dry and it has often gotten into my eyes which isn't fun at all!! I definitely recommend it for anyone who is just getting into skincare as Simple are a great beginners brand. Their products are so reasonable and they have a wide range of moisturisers, toners, face washes etc..


Neutrogena Visibly Clear 2 in 1 Wash and Mask 
The second product I've been loving recently is this Neutrogena 2in1 wash and mask. As I have said in previous videos this wash and mask is great especially when you are having a pamper evening. I feel like it really works as it stings a bit whether or not it's actually doing anything I think that it is. As it says on the packing you can either use this as a wash or mask I mainly use it as a mask as I prefer it however I have used it as a wash. It works well both ways however I will say that it is a bright white mask so you do look a bit scary aha.


OGX Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil
I tend to use this in phases sometimes I'll use it all the time and never put it down whereas other times I won't use it for months. I love using it when my hair feels a bit dryer than normal. It's so easy to use all you have to do is rub a bit in your hands and apply onto towel dried hair. After that I normally let it either dry naturally or I blow dry it depending on the weather outside. The smell is one of my favourites as I am so in love with the scent of Moroccan Argan Oil. It reminds me of being on holiday this bottle will also last me ages as you only have to put a little bit on your hand other wise your hair will get greasy. 


Simple Kind To Skin Micellar Cleansing Water
This one is almost gone so I picked another micellar water up but from a different brand as I wanted to try something new. However I love this one just as equally I have been using it for around two or three months now. I remember a lot of bloggers or YouTubers talking about the micellar water from Garnier however I haven't gotten around to trying that one just yet. I have found that this one is really gentile on your skin and doesn't irritate it as the formula isn't strong. I just simply place some on a cotton pad and then swipe it around my face until it's clean then I continue with my skincare routine. 


The last product that I'm going to be sharing with you may seem like a weird one but I'm going to do it anyways. Deodorant is something we often over look but I think it's actually quite important. I particularly love this one as it isn't visible under most clothes which is what you don't want to happen. Imagine going out wearing a top that you can see white marks on how embarrassing would that be!! I usually stock up on these when they are on offer as it can be quite expensive compared to other brands.

A ChiChi Dress Fit For A Princess




Hello everyone and a happy Monday to you I hope that your week has kicked off to a good start. In today's blog post I am going to be sharing with you two beautiful dresses that I picked up from Chi Chi London a week or two ago. 

As you will already know I am going on holiday in around three weeks time which has flown by. As I am going on a cruise which is going to be formal at times I decided to pick up a few dresses from Chi Chi. This was my first time purchasing anything from them and I felt like I had just walked into a princesses dress shop. All of their dresses are just gorgeous and each have their own beauty about them. 

I decided to head to the sale section as I have to admit I don't quite earn enough at the moment to purchase two of these dresses at full price. However their sale section was offering these two dresses that I decided to get and I have to admit I am pleased I did. I absolutely love them they transform me into a princess as such when I wear them. I can't wait to wear them on the ship and show my Nan too whom I don't think has seen them yet (She will love them!!). 

Chi Chi Paislee Dress Blue £30 was £67.99
The first dress that I picked up was this beautiful blue one which I have to admit I wasn't so sure about. However i had nothing to fear as it looked even more gorgeous in real life. The photo on the website made me wonder whether I would like it when I saw it or not. But I absolutely adore it is such a different sort of dress nothing like I have owned before which is great because it also means I'm exploring fashion zones out of my comfort area.

Chi Chi Maxine Dress Red £19.99 was £44.99
The second dress that I picked up is this red dress which is made out of the softest material I have ever felt. I can't quite describe what material it is but it's so soft and I instantly feel beautiful when I put it on. I love the sweetheart neckline and the whole length of the dress is perfect as I am quite small. It covers my bum which I like as I don't want to be exposing anyone unexpectedly now do I. I can't wait to pair this dress with my black heels for a more feminine look or with my boots for a more rock chick look. 

I have loved the whole shopping experience with Chi Chi I ordered my dresses and they arrived within a few days which is great. They were packaged perfectly as both dresses were in amazing condition. I highly recommend their dresses as well as the other items that they have on offer such as tops, play-suits and jumpsuits and shorts as well as much more.

New York City Bucketlist


As the majority of you will know if you have been reading my blog since this time last year. I am going to the big apple in a few weeks which has flown by as this time last year I was only just finding out I was even going in the first place. I thought that in this blog post I would note down a few things that I would love to do whilst I am there. 

I am going with my Mum and Nan therefore some of these ideas won't be possible however I could probably tick off around half of them. It just gives me another reason to go back one day and tick off the rest on this bucket list. 

- Take a photo of the city's skyline from near the Brooklyn bridge
- Eat a salmon and cream cheese bagel 
- Eat proper American pancakes
- Visit Grand Central Station
- Go to a local drugstore (e.g CVS)
- Visit Target and Bath and Bodyworks 
- Take a stroll through Central Park
- Take lots of photos in Times Square
- Walk the High Line
- Visit the 9/11 memorial 
- Visit the Statue of Liberty
- Have afternoon tea at the Plaza hotel
- Visit the West Village
- Visit Carlo's Bakery in Times Square or the real one in Hoboken
- Go to a theater show on Broadway
- Go up the Empire State Building

Obviously there are many more things I'd like to do but these are just a few that I thought I would share with you. Have you ever been to New York? If so what was your favourite part of your trip there?

Video | Winter Themed Q&A



Hey everyone I won't be uploading a video today as I haven't really had time to film, edit or upload any. I was supposed to take my driving test on Friday however it got cancelled at the last minute due to a strike. Which meant that I had been practicing a lot for that so this week was a bit crazy. 

I want to share with you my latest video which went up on Thursday instead of Wednesday as I was busy on that day. This particular video is a Winter themed Q&A which I had great fun filming. If you liked this video please give it a THUMBS UP and make sure to SUBSCRIBE.

Five Things Friday 13.11.15


Hey everyone happy Friday 13th!! Yes it's that one Friday a year we all slightly dread has anything bad happened to you?? Luckily nothing has happened to me yet....

So I thought that I would start this series called Five things Friday now it's not like I just made it up myself I've seen many bloggers do exactly the same post but on their blog. If you haven't already guessed what it is then I'll let the cat out of the bag every Friday I'm going to be looking back on my week and sharing with you guys five good things that happened that week. I think that it's such a lovely way to keep a mini record of my life as you often forget those little things that happen on a daily basis.

One
I started reading Girl Online On Tour a few days ago and I'm already hooked right onto it. I just love the story line and I can relate to a lot of the things in the book at this moment in time. I've always been a big fan of Zoe and ever since she started writing novels I've loved her even more. The first book was amazing so I'm expecting the same from the second one. I'm already on chapter twenty two which is quiet a way in considering I only started reading it a few days ago. 

I find that if there's a book I love then I tend to read it a lot quicker than a book which I find less interesting. I can't wait to read more of the book and see where the story line goes. I hope that Zoe brings out a third book in the series or another book with a different story line because I just love her writing style.

Two
I have found that this week here in London has truly been Autumnal there's leaves all over the ground. It's rained at least once a day most mornings have been crisp but sunny which I absolutely love. I love the sense of feeling fresh when you leave your house in the morning and it's freezing but the sun is shining. I'm so excited for Autumn and Winter this year especially when I head off to New York in a few weeks. 

Three
Leading on from number two I've been super excited for New York this week it's like it is all becoming very real. I leave for NYC in exactly 32 days which really isn't that long if you think about it. I can't wait to experience everything the hustle and bustle of the city, the various "best coffee" signs, $1 pizza but most of all the skyline. 

I'd love to take a taxi over to the Brooklyn Bridge and multiple pictures of the skyline. I am a huge fan of city photos I just think each one looks the same but they each hold thousands of different stories. I'm going to be doing a whole series on my trip to NYC so keep a look out for that because it's going to be awesome as the American say.

Four
Healthy food makes you feel good. So this week I've been trying to eat better whether it's by eating one salad a day or just cutting back on the rubbish I've been doing okay. I have to say this week I've also been feeling a lot more energized and motivated to do things. Whether it's the change of eating better food or not I'm going to go with it. Don't get me wrong I don't eat like a rabbit each day I do indulge in my favourite foods as well. I'm just making sure to eat some fruit or vedgetables each day as well as only one treat or two.

Five
So today Justin Bieber's new album came out and I have to admit it just came out at the right time for me. Some of the songs on there are perfect for this time of my life. I know I'll be listening to it on repeat all weekend. A few of my favourite songs are What Do You Mean?, Sorry, Love Yourself, Life Is Worth Living and Where Are U Now. I'm sure many more of the songs will become my favourite but at the moment these are the ones. I've always loved Justin from his first album My Worlds to his latest Purpose. There's many songs he's sang that I always go back to as some of them have meanings to them for me.

Things To Do In London This Autumn/Winter


Hello everyone happy Monday I'm sorry that it's been a week or so since you have last heard from me. I've been super busy also not really in the blogging mood so I thought that I would leave it instead of forcing myself to write a blog post. 

In today's blog post I thought that I would share with you some things you could do in my home city of London this Autumn/Winter. Whether you're visiting for the holidays, coming home or just visiting for the day or weekend you may need some inspiration as what you can do. 

- Spend the morning or afternoon in Regents Park (My favourite park)
- Go to the theater 
- Discover a restaurant in the backstreets of Soho
- Go early Christmas present shopping in Westfield (Shopping on Oxford Street is too stressful for me!!)
- If you're visiting from another country check out the local drug store
- Go on an Instagram worthy photography spree around the city
- Eat breakfast for dinner at The Breakfast Club (P.s large groups means longer waits!! So I would split your group up then you will wait less to eat)
- Explore the wonders of Winter Wonderland (Don't forget to take loads of photos too)
- Read a book in a cute little coffee shop
- Go for a drink at the Shard or Sky Garden
- Explore London by using the tube map (Hint: Visit one borough at a time and make the most of it)
- Go to one of the local food markets and try a little of everything

Five Things Friday 30.10.15

Five things friday 30.10.15
Hey everyone happy Friday I hope you have all had a lovely week and continue to have a great weekend!! I've been super busy this week which will all be explained in this blog post. Which is why I haven't been active much on here, my social media platforms or my YouTube channel.

So I thought that I would start this series called Five things Friday now it's not like I just made it up myself I've seen many bloggers do exactly the same post but on their blog. If you haven't already guessed what it is then I'll let the cat out of the bag every Friday I'm going to be looking back on my week and sharing with you guys five good things that happened that week. I think that it's such a lovely way to keep a mini record of my life as you often forget those little things that happen on a daily basis.

One 
This week has been a bit of a whirlwind in terms of jobs as most of you know I'm currently working at a part time job however I am looking for a permanent job. I am looking for a higher apprenticeship preferably based upon digital marketing. An amazing job came my way and I applied straight away which then lead to an interview all in the same week. I have to admit I was rather nervous for the interview as I haven't had one in a while and it's quiet a big deal. 

However it went really well and I received some feedback almost straight away unfortunately that job has been filled. In many ways it's almost a good thing as I think it wasn't 100% suited for me however they have suggested another role. I'm still waiting to hear back from this one but I'm hoping that it all goes well and I should be one step closer to achieving my goals both short term and long term. This is why I haven't been very active on anything this week as I've been preparing for my interview. 

Two
The second thing this week is all about driving as some of you may or may not know my driving test is fast approaching. Therefore at the moment my lessons are pretty important. As I'm only able to practice driving within these lessons I am trying to get as much out of them as I can. I have to admit I am pretty excited but also nervous for the test as I just want to get it over and done with. Learning to drive is quiet expensive however it will definitely all be worth it when I pass (fingers crossed). 

Three
I am in love with Goggle Box and First Dates which are both shown on Channel 4. Goggle Box is a program where people are filmed watching TV shows. They commentate how they feel and think about each show as they watch it. I have to admit at first I thought what a stupid program but as I'm watching it more and more I'm slightly falling in love with it. It makes me laugh as some of the sentences said are hilarious as obviously everyone has different opinions about everything. 

Another TV show I've been loving is First Dates which is based in a restaurant in London where people go on their first date. It's pretty self explanatory really some people come to the restaurant once and find love where as others come a few times. I think it's such a lovely program as you see people from all walks of life. I have to admit I have a soft spot for programs like this I just love seeing two people having the same feelings for each other. 

Four
I have learnt that this week many people will walk into your life. Some may stay for a while whereas others may stay for only a minute. However all of them are there to teach, show or give you something. Whether or not we know what a persons intentions are I have learnt that you should take everything as it comes. There's no point in living in the past or the future because the past is gone and the future hasn't even arrived. You should live in the here and now because these decisions, actions, thoughts or feelings will affect you most at the moment in time. 

By doing this you can actually live without worrying about what has happened in the past or what will happen in the future. Many things have happened this week which have helped me to realise this. Sometimes we just need to remember what is happening right now and not in an hour. 

Five
I have to admit I don't have a fifth thing for this week so I will have to leave it at four.....

Things To Do At Home This Halloween

Things to do on Halloween 2015

Hello everyone happy Monday I'm here to cheer you up with a blog post if you are like me and you are going to be at home on Halloween then here is a list of things you could do. I thought that I would do this blog post as although lots of people do go out quiet a lot of people still choose to stay at home whether it's by themselves or with a group of friends.

- Watch a movie (Hocus Pocus, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Casper, The Adams Family, Monster House & of course any horror movie.)
- Carve a pumpkin 
- Bake some sort of Halloween cake/cupcake/bread
- Hand out candy to kids
- Host a Halloween party
- Play games (Apple bobbing, Donut eating or Mummy wrap)
- Make your own treats (Candy apples etc...)
- Have some friends over, order pizza, play video games, watch movies
- Have a girls night in where you create Halloween based make up looks
- Make some arts and crafts with younger siblings or family members

Asia Jade's 2nd Birthday

How can I forget my blogs birthday I mean AHHHH that is not okay!! Weirdly I looked at the date and then I realised it was my blog's birthday. I know in the blog post I posted earlier I said that I wouldn't be uploading until next week. However it is my blog's birthday so I cannot upload something now can I. I've achieved so many things over these past two years here are some of the things I've done:

- Hit over 40,000 views
- Connected with bloggers around the world
- Made life long blogging friends
- Interacted with some amazing companies which are listed here
- Written about a variety of things
- Inspired people to start their own blog 
- I'm almost at 100 followers on blogger

I cannot thank you all enough for the support and love you have given me both on my blog and channel. It's your support which keeps me blogging and making videos for you guys. I absolutely love writing down my thoughts here on my blog which is like an online diary for me. Although sometimes it does take a lot of effort I do enjoy every minute of it and I love to look back at what I've written in the past. A giveaway will be following in the next few weeks so keep an eye out for that!!

Anxiety is a problem sometimes

Hello everyone long time no see I bet you were wondering were I was seeing as I haven't uploaded a blog post or video since a few days ago. This week I've been feeling rather anxious which is never good. I've had a lot going on this week and the next few weeks are pretty jam packed for me.

Whenever I'm feeling anxious or I've had a panic attack recently everything else such as blogging or making videos always goes to the pack of the pile as such. Making sure that I am feeling better or back to "normal" comes first. That is why this week I haven't been very active on anything really. I've been "recovering" in a way just making sure that I was happy in myself. 

There are days where I have a reason to be anxious maybe I have a job interview, a big thing going on at work or an exam. However there are also days where I have no reason to be anxious because everything is going well but I still am. I guess in a way I talk about my anxiety a lot but in a very careful way as I don't want it to be something that defines me. 

Who would want to be judged on a mental health issue? Not me. Nobody wants to be judged for something their insecure about do they. However nowadays I feel it's so important talking about it as many people have it and it's still seen as a bad thing. I've had many different reactions in the past when I've said that I suffer with anxiety. 

In a way I find it so much easier telling you guys about it because you're not involved physically in my day to day life. I find it much harder telling people I see on a regular basis because they have to experience it first hand if I have a panic attack when I'm out with them or something. 

So I think for the rest of this week I am going to be taking a break from anything blog/YouTube related and then start fresh on Monday. Blogging or filming a video when I'm feeling anxious is the last thing I want to be doing really I'd rather sit down with a cup of tea and watch movies back to back.

The Sunday Topic No.11 Disney Films

The Sunday Topic - Disney Films

The Sunday Topic:
I wanted to start a series that I'm going to be running for the whole year one that's going to inspire people, make people happy and make them realise how beautiful life actually is!! So each Sunday I'm going to be posting a lifestyle post about something. This could be anything from good topics to dark topics that no one ever really talks about. By doing this I hope to open peoples eyes about how beautiful the world is but also how dark and lonely it can be.

Disney Films
The first full Disney film was Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs which took a full three years to complete. This was released in 1937 which took in a lot of sales enabling Walt to purchase some land in California to build the Walt Disney Studios. From this Walt got a taste of what he could create in terms of films.

As we know some of the old movies include Beauty and The Beast, Alice in Wonderland, Sleeping Beauty, The Lion King, Pinocchio, Cinderella, Aladdin, Tarzan, Dumbo and Mulan to name a few. Whereas some of the newest Disney films include Frozen, Big Hero 6, Cinderella, Maleficent, Wreck-It-Ralph, Tangled and Meet The Robinsons.

The Good
Disney films allow us to take our minds off our own lives for a while and be thrown into a completely different life. I always find that Disney films make me happy and cheer me up if I'm having a bad day. I love the array of different characters throughout the movies as you can see different aspects of yourself in each character.

My love for Disney 
As you guys know I am a big Disney fan especially when it comes to the movies. I'm always watching them and I usually watch each one at least ten times (no joke). I'm the type of person who can watch a film over and over again and not get bored of it. Some of the films that I have recorded and that I watch at least once a week are Tangled, Frozen, Wreck-It-Ralph and Beauty and The Beast. I absolutely love those movies and I always put one on if I'm having a bad day. 

Where I see Disney films in the future
I can see the films getting better and better as time goes on however I still love all of the classic movies. If you compare Frozen to Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs you can see the difference clearly. However each and every Disney film is filled with magic they are all enjoyable to watch and I never find them boring unless their directed more towards boys. 

How long will I watch Disney films for?
I honestly see myself watching them for a pretty long time at the moment I'm 19 and I still don't get bored of them. Then when I have my own kids I'll be watching them with them. So I think I will be watching Disney films for a long time as new ones are being released each year. 

A few of my favorite films
- Tangled
- Frozen
- Finding Nemo
- Bedknobs and Broomsticks
- Beauty and The Beast
- Eight Below
- The Emperor's New Groove
- Lilo and Stitch
- Mulan

Five Things Friday 15.10.15


So I thought that I would start this series called Five things Friday now it's not like I just made it up myself I've seen many bloggers do exactly the same post but on their blog. If you haven't already guessed what it is then I'll let the cat out of the bag every Friday I'm going to be looking back on my week and sharing with you guys five good things that happened that week. I think that it's such a lovely way to keep a mini record of my life as you often forget those little things that happen on a daily basis.

One
This week seeing as my one and only candle died out I thought I would go and pick some up from H&M homeware. I managed to pick up two candles which are currently burning at this moment in time while I write this blog post. I cannot tell you how homely my room feels right now especially as it's quite chilly outside. Candles just make everything more cosy in my opinion especially during these cold months. I can't wait to start my own candle cupboard and have loads as a back up for when they all finish. 

Two
As some of you will know I am currently taking driving lessons which may soon be over as I have booked my test although I'm keeping a tight lip on the exact date. I've been having good driving lessons recently which always put me in a good mood. I had an especially good driving lesson this week which was two hours long. Two hours driving can seem nothing to a lot of people but a lot to some. 

For me it's a perfect amount although at the moment I am doing one week of a two hour lesson then the next only an hour. I am definitely looking forward to my next one as I'm now just waiting to take my test really all these lessons in the next few weeks are just practice runs for the real thing.

Three
I did a really big clean out of my room this week and I ended up giving loads of clothes away to charity which always makes me feel good. I always feel so much more organised and clear headed once I've had a good clean out I like to do this at least twice a year. I always find things I haven't found in ages as well as things which make me think why did I buy this in the first place. 

Don't you feel much better once you've tied up that pile of clothes in your corner or sorted out the clutter in your bathroom? I do!! I always find it helps me to think a lot better about other things I need to do. However I have to admit I am the type to always leave picking up a pile of clothes or sorting out things to a later date.

Four
This week I've really been trying to get the most out of each day. Whether it's by ticking off things that I've been meaning to do for a while or by pre-writing blog posts for the week. I'm starting to realise that you can get a lot done in your day if you use it correctly. For example, by getting up earlier you can get more things done or by staying up later you can do the same. 

Now that I have more time on my hands as I don't have homework, coursework or revision taking up my time I needed to find other ways to use up that time effectively. Yes writing a blog and running a YouTube channel does take up most of this time. However I also want to find other things to do such as photography which I love. Maybe I could even learn to cook some new dishes which I also love cooking is one of my all time favourite pass times.

Five
The last thing this week would have to be music I know this plays a massive part in everyone's life. But it's played a big part in mine this week I have just loved listening to all types of different songs this week with the help of Spotify. I have discovered so many new songs that I am in love with one being Human by Christina Perri it's such an amazing song. I find it so relaxing finding a great playlist to put on whilst I'm editing a video or writing a blog post.
