Last post of 2014

Hey guys!

So today is officially the last day of 2014. This year has gone quick, but then again every year always seems to go quick when you reach December 31st. 
For starters, this blog came to exist on on the 16th May 2014. I know I haven't made many posts during the year, but I promise you that in 2015. I will post more regularly with one or two posts a week.
Another thing, my Saturdays stopped being a lazy day when I had to volunteer at a charity shop. It was an amazing experience and the people were so nice.
Next, I did my AS levels and did well in them. I also did loads of artwork which I'm proud of and never thought I could do. I can't wait to do more in 2015. 



I got to celebrate my little brother's second birthday which was nice. 


I also broke my left arm over the summer and I had to have surgery which was very annoying.




I also celebrated my 18th birthday which was great.




Then I got to go to New York with my mother which was the best experience of my life.






I've had a good year in 2014 but I hope 2015 to be even better. A fresh start.

Goals:
-Get accepted into uni
-Find a very special someone to love
-Try my best in all my exams and coursework
-Meet new people
-Enjoy every moment
-Write more blog posts

Anyway, thanks for being a part of my 2014. Here's to the new year and have a good one.


Love you all.



See you in 2015.

Happy New Year!

My Top Five Favorite Musicals

Hey guys!

So, today I decided to tell you what my top five favorite musicals are. Here we go.

1. Cats - I love love love this musical. I've only seen the film but I still love it. The songs. The dancing. The costumes. Everything about it. I think it's such a beautiful musical and I really wish I could see it. However, I've heard a lot about this revival of cats and I'm not happy by one small tinie tiny little thing. The Rum Tum Tugger. What did they do to him? Where's his cool costume with the mane and the leopard spots and the hair? I do not like his new costume one bit. I also heard he raps. That is a big no no from me. I prefer his original song. There's nothing wrong with it. I don't even know why they decided to change Tugger. It's ridiculous. I know I'm judging it from what I've seen on the internet, but I just don't like it. I'm sorry, but they got that wrong. Big time! I still love the musical though, just not this new West End revival.

2. Shrek The Musical - The first time I saw this, was on the plane back from New York and it was one of the movie options. It did not disappoint. This musical is amazing. It's hilarious and the singing is just perfect. I love that they stuck to the movie, but added bits to it and that made it so perfect. I would love to go see it live because it is incredible.

3. Mamma Mia - I was lucky enough to watch this on Broadway. It was my first Broadway show and I was so happy that it was. The songs are just amazing and it makes you wanna get up and dance. It's a wonderful story. It's one of those musicals that you just can't help but smile every time you watch it. I loved it when I saw it live. It was just amazing.

4. Little Shop Of Horrors - I've seen this musical twice live. The first time, I was eight and it scared the life out of me. I was scared of plants and I had lots of nightmares. However, when I grew up I watched the film and I realized that it is a great musical. It's funny and it's got really catchy songs. I love watching this musical. The second time I saw it live was two years ago and I was so glad that I watched it. It was funny and I loved every minute of it. The actors were amazing. It's a great musical and one of my favorites.

5. The Rocky Horror Picture Show - I love watching this musical. The songs are great and the story line is good. It's a really great musical. Every time I hear the Time Warp, I can't help but do the Time Warp. I love listening to some of the songs like Sweet Transvestite and There's A Light (Over at the Frankenstein's Place) It's a great musical and I would love to experience this musical live.

Well, that's it. My top five favorite musicals. I do have more musicals that I love, but these are my top musicals.

Anyway, thank you for reading.
I love you all.
Bye!

Me reacting to The Fault In Our Stars movie

Yes, I finally watched The Fault In Our Stars and I was happy that I read the book first before watching the movie. (I recommend doing it)

Okay, first of. This movie is amazing. I'm so happy they made a movie of this book and it's actually sticks to the story and uses lines from it. I love it when that happens.

When I got the dvd. I wasn't emotionally ready. I had already read the book and I knew what was going to happen. I cried at the book so I was expecting to cry at this movie because it's visual.
During the film, I did get a little teary but they didn't fall and I just felt really sad as the movie started coming to an end. I wanted to cry, but I couldn't and I was just left with this pain in my chest.

Overall, it was a beautiful film and as most people say. It's not a book or a movie about cancer. It's a book or a movie about love.  It's a really great story and all the actors are perfect. Shailene Woodley is the perfect Hazel. Ansel Elgort is the perfect Gus. All the actors in this film were perfect for the roles.

I agree with what it says on my DVD. I'd give it six stars if I could or even more than that. It's such a good film. If you haven't watched it or read the book. You need to. I can guarantee you won't regret it.

Anyway, that's it from me.
I love you.
Bye!!!!!!

Ansel Elgort Appreciation Post

Hey guys!

Okay, ever since I read The Fault In Our Stars. I've been waiting to get paid for ages now, so that I can buy TFIOS dvd. (I get paid tomorrow, thankfully) Anyway, lately I've been doing my research into the two main actors of the film and one actor in particular has just made me get a little bit crazy.

I'm talking about Ansel Elgort who plays Augustus Waters.

I mean look at him. 


Just look at him. 


Look!


I'm dead.

He's just amazing. I mean. He's one of the hottest guys ever and have you seen his vine account. If not. You need to. I can guarantee you'll be happy afterwards. 

Also, just search his name on YouTube and you'll eventually find a reason to love this guy. He's a man of many many many talents. Gah! I love him.

I haven't even seen the movie yet and I'm already in love with this guy and I know that this is just going to make me cry even more when I watch the film. 

He's just perfect.

I'm sorry for this random fangirl post, but it happens a lot.

This danisnotonfire video may explain why I have such a problem when it comes to obsessing over something. Blame the internet.



I do not regret being an overly obsessed fangirl even though it ruins my life and I get all these feels every time something happens with something I really like e.g. Ansel Elgort. 

Anyway, thanks for reading.
I love you all.
Bye!



****I do not own any pictures or videos. Please don't sue. I'm just an overly obsessed fangirl with very little money just trying to express these feels I've been locking up inside for so long. It happens.... A lot.****

Favorite things about Christmas

Hey guys!

So, it's now December which can only mean one thing for most of us. It's nearly Christmas time. I absolutely love this time of the year for many reasons and here's a list of my favorite things about Christmas.


  • Christmas Adverts - Every year I get excited to see Christmas adverts because that means it's time to start thinking about Christmas shopping. This year my favorite Christmas advert has been Sainsburys' one. It's so good. 
  • Advent Calenders - I don't care how old I am. I will always have an advent calender every year. It's nice to eat a little piece of chocolate every morning and it's exciting when you get closer and closer to the 24th December. 
  • Listening to Christmas music - I love listening to Christmas songs. It's one of the things that gets me in the Christmas spirit. My favorite Christmas song is 'Do They Know It's Christmas?'
  • Christmas decorations - I love putting up Christmas decorations around the house and putting up the Christmas tree. It brings the family together and it's fun to decorate the house with Christmas decorations. 
  • Christmas lights - I love going around the town and seeing all the Christmas lights. It's so pretty and it's also nice to see how people decorate their houses for Christmas. 
  • Buying Christmas presents - I always get excited when I go Christmas shopping for my friends and families. I always look forward to giving my family and friends their presents. It makes me so happy.
  • Getting Christmas presents - Yes as much as I love giving presents. I love receiving presents. We all do. I'm always thankful for what I get for Christmas. It's exciting especially when you see the presents under the Christmas tree and you always wonder what's inside the wrapping paper.
  • Christmas Dinner - I love food and I do enjoy a good roast dinner. It's nice to eat as a family and pull crackers with the really bad jokes and the tissue paper crown inside. It's a nice moment.
That's all I have. There's probably still some more of my favorite things about Christmas, but I can't think of them right now. Let me know if you have any other favorite things about Christmas.

My Christmas tree this year.

Anyway, that's it from me. Thank you for reading.
I love you all.
Bye!

Finally read TFIOS!!!!!

(Don't worry. Not gonna spoil it for anyone who hasn't read this book)

Hey guys!

No, I'm not okay.

Yesterday, I just finished reading The Fault In Our Stars. (No, I haven't seen the movie yet. I wanted to read the book first) Yes, I cried. I was feeling very sad as I was reading to the end and then once I finished it. I paused for a moment because I didn't know what to do then I cried for about half an hour.

It's such a good book. John Green is a genius. I don't know why I was so slow in reading this. I guess I don't have time to read books with so much school work and deadlines, but I made time for this book. Once I got into I couldn't stop. I had to know what happens to Hazel Grace and Augustus Waters. (They're my OTP now. All the feels.) Now I just want to buy the movie from Amazon so that I could watch it then curl up in a ball and cry again. Then read the book again. And cry.

It's a good book. I recommend it to anyone who is old enough to get so many feels and ship Hazel and Augustus.

Anyway, I'm going to cry again because I'm so not over this book.

Bye!

<3

New York!

I had such a great time in New York last month. It definitely is a wonderful city to visit. Every time I stepped out of the hotel, it felt like walking into a movie. There's a lot of things you can see in one day. There's Time Square, Central Park, Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, Ground Zero and loads more. You can also see a Broadway show which is a great experience. I saw Mamma Mia and I thought it was amazing. I would recommend at some point in your life going to New York. It's a really great experience. I also recommend going in October because the weather was really good. Here are a few photos which I took when I went there.

Finished AS Exams! Woo!

Hey guys!

So, I've finished doing my AS exams today. I had ICT this morning which was my last exam and now I'm off school until next Monday. This is the best feeling in the world because it means I have no more revision to do until next year and I have no homework or school for a week. I've been off school for a month for study leave but during that time I've been revising. (That's the main reason why haven't been updating on my blog recently.) However, now I'm free for a week so yeah.
Now I know this post was short but I just had to let you all know this.

Anyway, that's it from me.
Bye!
