As someone who’s never really done collaborations with other bloggers on their blog before, this month I have a grand total of TWO! Can you believe it? I’ve really enjoyed these posts and I’d love to collaborate with more bloggers in the future. So today’s post, is a little collab with one of the sweetest bloggers on the entire planet. If you love anything Disney, the she’s the person to go to for all the amazing Disney content. I mean, obviously the only person I could be talking about here is Lize in Disneyland isn’t it?! Obviously our collab had to be Disney related and having both been to Disneyland Paris, today we’re both posting about our ideal day at Disneyland Paris. And it’s giving me all the nostalgia and all the feels. As soon as you’re done here, do head over to her blog and check out her post! Anyway, let’s head to Disneyland!
I love an outdoor activity. I would much rather spend the day outside in the fresh air than cooped up inside somewhere and almost all of my day out activities – and even holiday activities – will mostly be outside. When I was a kid, my parents took me on plenty of days out and the majority of them I remember (or know from photos) were also outside. I think I was brought up to just enjoy being in the open air, rather than cooped up somewhere warm and stuffy and enjoying what the outdoors has to offer. Which is a lot! I’m still a big kid at heart and I rarely do “grown up” things like go to posh restaurants, go to the theatre or even go shopping anymore! My shopping is done online and my days out are outside and I probably wouldn’t have it any other way.
A main event in secondary school (or high school) is no doubt… prom. Whether you loved it or hated it if you’re already past school age or are dreading it or looking forward to it if you’re yet to have yours, you’ve probably got some sort of feelings towards your prom and the idea of proms in general. I feel like it’s a very American tradition (if I’m wrong, please correct me) which at some point in time, us folks over the pond adopted ourselves. A prom is usually held at the end of year 11 (in the UK) which is the point where school ends and college or sixth form starts. I have fond memories of my proms. Yes, proms. I have a lot of experience of them… Because we had three.
When I was younger, the phrase “do you want to play out?” was one of the most used phrases down my road. I’m so very thankful that I grew up in a time before social media, before the internet (well we had the very first dregs of the internet which took approximately 5 weeks to load 1 website so I probably wouldn’t count that!) and before we were all glued to our phones, trying to find the perfect filter rather than trying to find the perfect conker. I was an extremely active kid, always playing with two girls who lived down my road who were similar ages to me, running around, using our bikes and scooters (like those from Skatehut) and climbing trees over the park. I had an extremely happy childhood and I’m so very thankful for that.
It’s tag time! (aka; Jenny can’t think of any blog post ideas) Thank you to the lovely Minttu from Life of Menta for the tag! You can check out her post here and do have a nosy around her blog because it’s absolutely stunning – I’m also a huge fan of the Finnish language so seeing posts written in English and Finnish is really fascinating to me (you can see how much I get out from that sentence alone). Anyway, on with the tag then!
Once again, another book tag stolen from Kris from Boston Book Reader (thanks!) If you love books and fun bookish tags and posts, then her blog is the place to go! I’ve been really trying to up the amount of bookish themed content on my blog recently. I’m writing this in April and over the coming months, I have more book reviews scheduled than I have done in the past half a year! I’m really enjoying reading at the moment (I’m currently reading When Breath Becomes Air – if you’ve read it, please talk to me!) and blogging more about books takes me back to my roots in a way. Books are the reason I blog; without them I wouldn’t be here so I’ll always be eternally grateful to those wonderful little masterpieces.
A couple of years ago, I did a post called the “random questions generator Q&A” which was, well, what it says on the tin really. I found a random questions generator online, generated 10 random questions (blimey, imagine that!) and answered them in a Q&A! So I thought this would be a fun post to do again because you don’t know what questions you’re going to get and you’re likely going to be answering something a little different from the good old, “why did you start blogging?”. So, I generated 10 questions and I’m answering every question that came up and not skipping any – cos that’s cheating. Here’s what I got!
