I’ve seen this A-Z of me post scattered around the blogosphere quite a lot recently; and I’m not surprised. It’s a lovely, simple post to let people know a little more about you. I pinched the idea off of Fraser’s Fun House (who’s blog is fantastic, hint hint mummy and lifestyle bloggers, go and check it out!) and thought it would be a good idea to do as my follower count has grown substantially since the last time I did any sort of “get to know me” or “facts about me” type post which have been lost in the ether by now. So, let’s get going. A-Z of me and please excuse any of these which are ridiculous because chances are I couldn’t think of anything beginning with that letter.
I’m truly tired of seeing bloggers who have been blogging for a considerable about of time with a considerable following trying to “keep their secrets“. Hun, you ain’t Dynamo. Bloggers who refuse to disclose how they get opportunities, what they’ve done to work with brands and those who straight up don’t reply to other bloggers on social media – not through being busy or having a bad day (I totally understand how overwhelming social media can be some days) – solely because they’re a “bigger blogger“. Huh? When did this strange, “there’s no room for all bloggers” mentality come into practice and how can we get TF rid of it?
I decided to go ahead with a “bit of everything” Q&A today and I have a bunch of questions below, which came from people on Twitter, some serious, some really, really not. I always enjoy doing random Q&A type posts sometimes for no other reason than I can’t think of anything else to write but I do enjoy reading them as well as you always learn something new about the blogger behind the blog!
Despite the fact I might not like my birthday very much and that 25 seems to be this big ol’ daunting year for me, I do love a birthday gift haul. I love reading them myself because I’m nosy and love to see why other people got for the birthdays and the kinda stuff they like. I also love writing them myself and taking photos of my presents as it gives me a chance to reflect and be grateful all over again for the gifts I received for my birthday. So here’s my 25th birthday gift haul!
I’ll start with a selection of gifts which I actually asked for. Despite being 25 now, my mum still goes “all-out” on my birthday even though I tell her not to spend a lot of money on me. So this year I had in mind a few items which I really wanted that I knew she could get me which wouldn’t break the bank. (Also, sorry about the not-too-brilliant photos, I still haven’t got the hang of this picture taking lark).
I absolutely love tattoos. And despite only having one myself, that doesn’t stop me spending hours upon hours scrolling through Pinterest, pinning hundreds of beautiful tattoos and wondering what I’m going to get next. I have a few nice ideas up my sleeve which I’m hoping to look into getting in the near future. But like with my first one, I won’t make any hasty decisions and I wouldn’t even book a consultation with a tattoo artist until I was 110%, no 120% sure that that was exactly what I wanted.
Good morning everyone! This week on my blog, I will be bringing you a different guest post every day from Monday until Friday from a different blogger as I am away on my holidays this week! I’ll be chug, chug, chugging along on a boat along the Norfolk Broads, without a laptop or much WiFi for that matter so I thought it would be a perfect chance to get some guests on and talk about different topics than what I usually write about. So… let’s kick things off shall we and first up we have a wonderful post from Mairéad, all about her time working in Disney World!
I don’t do these chain award tag posts anymore if I’m honest. A lot of them are for new bloggers and I’m long from being a new blogger but I was tagged in one the other day which was mostly Disney themed and it looked like fun so I wanted to join in. I’m not sure if this tag is designed for new bloggers or just anyone who fancies doing it but what I’m going to do is tag 10 bloggers with under 500 blog followers at the end of this post for you to check out and spread the love! Thank you to Charlie from That is the Spell for my nomination, do go and check out his wonderful blog!
I really love doing fun and personal posts every now and again and I recently stumbled upon Gabriella’s video about ’10 things she would save in a fire‘. This video was intended to be done as a video ‘tag’ but as you’re well aware that I definitely, 100% do not do YouTube I decided to make it into a blog post instead! But credit to Gabby for creating the tag in the first place and you can find her video here. I really enjoyed doing this and thinking of the items I would save; it really makes you realise what is sentimental to you and what isn’t and I was surprised by some of my choices. So let’s assume every human in my house is clever enough to get out themselves, with everything left, here’s the 10 things I would save If my house was on fire *but touch wood it won’t be*.
You know me, I love Disney. That’s no secret. And a major part of many Disney films are the messages and lessons they try and teach us within them. Most of these films come with quotes and I for one, love a good quote. I think quotes (not just Disney ones) can help us realise that we’re not the only one feeling how we’re feeling and finding a quote that sums up perfectly how we’re feeling at that specific time… Well, is there anything like it? And as well as the fun and the magic, Disney has some amazing, life-affirming quotes and today I want to share with you 10 of my favourites!
If you cut open my veins (what a charming way to start a post), you’d probably find fairy dust instead of blood. Disney is in my blood and I’ve loved it ever since I was 5 years old and my parents took me to Disneyland. Granted, I wasn’t big enough to go on much but I can imagine it was an very magical time. Like most Disney fans, the movies play a huge part in that childhood (and adulthood) passion. Today I want to talk about those movies which aren’t always raved about – like Frozen or The Lion King. The hidden gems. The ones that often get over-looked. I absolutely adore all of these movies and can’t believe they’re not rated as highly as some others!
