My favourite songs and lyrics from The Prince of Egypt :)

My favourite songs and lyrics from The Prince of Egypt :)

On the 8th of September I went to see The Prince of Egypt with my friend Hannah which was so so amazing!! This was my second time seeing the show and it was so nice to be back in a theatre and see a show and I absolutely loved it πŸ™‚ I have done quite a few posts about some of my favourite songs and lyrics from musicals but I thought I would write down some of my favourite lyrics and songs from this show πŸ™‚

Some of my favourite songs:

  • Deliver Us
  • Footprints on the Sand
  • Dance To The Day
  • In a Million Years
  • Through Heavens Eyes
  • Always on Your Side
  • Heartless
  • Faster

Some of my favourite lyrics:

  • Sleep and remember my last lullaby, So I’ll be with you when you dream- Deliver Us
  • Footprints on the sand, Ripples on the river Wispy drifting clouds, That blow across the desert sky- Footprints on the Sand
  • But maybe just to leave things, A little changed from when I came- Footprints on the sand
  • But now, I will dance But my dance will be only for me, I dance to the day, I am free- Dance To The Day
  • And if you should ask how soon I think this feeling disappears, Never in a million years- In A Million Years
  • A single thread in a tapestry, Though its color brightly shines, Can never see its purpose, In the pattern of the grand design- Through Heavens Eyes
  • So how do you measure the worth of a man, In wealth or strength or size?- Through Heavens Eyes
  • To pick me up, restore my purpose and my pride, When you were always at my side- Always On Your Side
  • Scattering melons and olives and baskets, And making a small disaster, No time to turn and look back at the damage we’ve done, We’ve got to go faster- Faster

Book Tag Shelfie Pt 3 :)

Book Tag Shelfie Pt 3 :)

I have always loved reading and have quite the collection of books on my bookshelf and on my kindle and have recently bought quite a few books so a month or so ago I thought that I would have a look for some bookish tags that I could do on this blog and I came across this one and thought it was amazing so thought I would give it a go πŸ™‚

This is my third Book Shelfie (my first one can be found here) so I figured I would start on my third shelf πŸ™‚

  1. Is there any reason for this shelf to be organised the way it is or is it purely random? All of my shelves are completely random currently but I would like to go through and organise them a bit better πŸ™‚ This shelf has quite a few of my newer books on it πŸ™‚
  2. Tell us a story about one of the books on this shelf that is special to you? I think the book that probably means the most to me in this shelf is my In The Heights book as my brother bought it for me for my birthday and I love the movie and the show πŸ™‚
  3. Which book from this shelf would you ditch and why? I think the book I would ditch would probably be the Marvel book book Infinity War as I bought it and then realised that I am not really a fan of comic books
  4. Which book from this shelf would you save in an emergency? I think the book I would save in an emergency would be either my In The Heights book or The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo which was such a good book and I bought it while on holiday with my friends in Windsor πŸ™‚
  5. Which book has been on this shelf for the longest time?– Probably Run by Kody Keplinger as I remember reading it in my last year of high school πŸ™‚
  6. Which book is the newest addition to this shelf? The Castaways by Lucy Clarke and Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman were both added to this bookshelf at the same time only a few weeks ago πŸ™‚
  7. Which book from this shelf are you most excited to read/reread? I think The Castaways because the blurb sounds really really good!! If I were to re-read any of the books it would be Evelyn Hugo or The Shelf
  8. Are there any objects on this shelf apart from books, tell us the story behind it? I actually don’t have any objects on this shelf because it has two rows of books so theres not enough space for any other objects πŸ™‚
  9. What does this shelf tell us about you as a reader? I think this shelf tells you that I am a fan of fiction books and am a big fan of rom-com, murder mystery and Disney πŸ™‚

Let me know in the comments if you have read any of the books from this shelf and what book you would recommend I read next πŸ™‚

Selsey 2021 :)

Selsey 2021 :)

On the 28th of August my family and I packed up our car and headed to the beach in Selsey in Chichester for the weekend which was so so nice πŸ™‚ We took Maya for lots of walks, chilled on the beach, had some lovely food and had a really relaxing weekend πŸ™‚ On the way to Selsey we popped into a place called Arundel which was such a lovely town where we went for afternoon tea which was delish πŸ™‚

Let me know in the comments if you have been to Selsey or what your favourite beach in England is πŸ™‚

2021 Reading Challenge Part 4 :)

2021 Reading Challenge Part 4 :)

My 2021 reading challenge was to read 24 books this year however I have actually finished this challenge which I’m super proud about πŸ™‚ I have really enjoyed the last few books I have read and am hoping that I can read a few more before the end of the year πŸ™‚

  • The Shelf by Helly Acton: 10/10- I am a big fan of Helly Acton as she has such interesting ideas! I have owned this book for a while but after reading The Couple I decided to read this and it was so good! I loved all of the characters not just the main characters as I felt that they all had their own personalities and were really well developed πŸ™‚ I loved the journey the main character goes through and also some of the side characters as well πŸ™‚
  • The Duke and I by Julia Quinn: 8/10- I was a big fan of Bridgeton when it was on TV but who wasn’t so I figured because I love reading that I would add this book to my to-read list and I’m glad I did πŸ™‚ I’m so excited to read the rest of the series at some point and I actually received book 2 and 3 for my birthday this year πŸ™‚ This book was part of Hannah and I’s book club which was pretty cool as well πŸ™‚
  • Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo: 10/10- I LOVED LOVED LOVED this series when I watched it on Netflix so then was trying to find the books for ages and then I managed to find it while in Foyles with my brother so he bought it for me for my birthday πŸ™‚ I absolutely loved the first book and cannot wait to finish the rest of the series πŸ™‚
  • The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid: 10/10- This was one of my favourite books that I read this year!!! I heard about it through booktok and thought I would give it a go when I saw it in a waterstones in Windsor while there with my friends πŸ™‚ I loved the pace of the book and it was very well written with the audience finding out information alongside the narrator of the book as well πŸ™‚ It was so interesting seeing the nuances of each marriage of Evelyns and also the two major twists in the book were amazing πŸ™‚
  • If the Shoe Fits by Julie Murphy: 9/10- I am a sucker for a Disney style plot so this re-telling of Cinderella I was always going to love especially as it also brings in my love of reality television and also I have read two of Julie Murphys other books, Dumplin and Puddin πŸ™‚ This book is the first of an upcoming Meant to Be Series which are modern re-tellings of classic fairytales πŸ™‚
  • Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid: 8/10- I was reading this book on my kindle on the beach in Selsey which was pretty cool πŸ™‚ Although I really enjoyed this book I didn’t enjoy it as much as her other book but it was still really good ❀

Let me know in the comments what books you have been reading recently and if you have any recommendations πŸ™‚

My favourite songs and lyrics from Cinderella :)

My favourite songs and lyrics from Cinderella :)

On the 22nd of August I went to see Andrew Lloyd Webbers new musical Cinderella starring Carrie Hope Fletcher which was so so amazing!! It was so nice to be back in a theatre and see a show and I absolutely loved it πŸ™‚ I have done quite a few posts about some of my favourite songs and lyrics from musicals so I thought since this was the first new show I have seen in over a year I would write a post about some of my favourites from this musical πŸ™‚

Some of my favourite songs:

  • Bad Cinderella
  • So Long
  • Only You Lonely You
  • Beauty has a price
  • I know I have a heart
  • Far Too Late
  • Cinderellas Soliloquy
  • Finale

Some of my favourite lyrics:

  • They call me a wretch, a witch, well, choose one. Every fairytale, for sure, can use one- Bad Cinderella
  • How I’ve missed Cinderella, That’s a total surprise, Not at all what I expected. If I kissed Cinderella, She might blacken my eyes- So Long
  • So long, farewell, It’s really been swell, Have a nice life, Good luck with your wife- So Long (reprise)
  • I’m sky-high and I long to show you, My whole world is altered Yet, I don’t say a thing, Only you Lonely you, Show me how my lonely heart can sing- Only You Lonely You
  • Just like that goddess from Greece, you know, who launched all the ships, So when men stare in my eyes it’s like a solar Π΅clipse- Beauty has a price
  • Buckle up, don’t forget, beauty isn’t cheap, It can cost you all you own and your beauty sleep- Beauty has a Price
  • Like a damsel in distress, In a torn party dress. Someone I never met, I was pretending. Should have known all along, That I need to be strong. For a girl who’s like me, There’s no happy ending- I know I have a Heart
  • If I could, I would somehow turn the clock back, And this heartache I create, But it’s far too late- Far Too Late
  • Look at me, Cinderella, with the wind in my sails, I will never look behind me, You won’t see Cinderella, I’ll be off blazing trails, Where no one I know can find me- Cinderellas Soliloquy

Let me know in the comments if you have been to see Cinderella yet πŸ™‚

Would you rather- Marvel Edition :)

Would you rather- Marvel Edition :)

I have done similar posts to this with a Disney Would You Rather and a Christmas Would You Rather so I thought today I would do a Marvel Would You Rather πŸ™‚

  1. Would you rather be born with powers or get powers later in life? I think I would rather get powers later in life because then I would be mature enough to use them for the greater good and I would appreciate them more πŸ™‚
  2. Would you rather have a suit designed by Tony Stark or Shuri? I think definitely Shuri- she is such a badass and the suit she designs for Black Panther is absolutely AMAZING!
  3. Would you rather be an Avenger or a Guardian? Being a Guardian seems like so much fun!
  4. Of the Six infinity stones which would you rather have? I think I would rather have the space stone because I could just teleport to different planets πŸ™‚
  5. Of everyone killed by Thanos who would you rather save? ……. Loki……… the thing is everyone who was killed in the snap was bought back anyway and technically Nat and Iron Man weren’t killed by Thanos because they sacrificed themselves so I wouldn’t be able to save them.
  6. Would you rather fly on Ant Mans Ant friend or using Falcons wings? Falcons wings! It would be so much fun
  7. Would you rather be able to control minds like Wanda or control feelings like Mantis? I think I would rather be able to control minds because with that you could also control feelings by what you are putting in their mind also Wanda is very very powerful so if I had even a quarter of her powers it would be pretty cool πŸ™‚
  8. Would you rather hang out with Baby Groot or Teenage Groot? Baby groot- he’s so cute!!
  9. Would you rather run like Quicksilver or shrink and fly like Wasp? I think I’d rather be able to fly because then I could fly to different countries and save on airplane tickets πŸ™‚
  10. Would you rather wield Thor’s Mjolnir or Stormbreaker? I feel like wielding Mjolnir has such significance that I would want to wield Mjolnir but it depends whether I was worthy :p

Let me know in the comments your answers to these would you rather’s πŸ™‚

One Tree Hill Tag Part 2 :)

One Tree Hill Tag Part 2 :)

I have actually done this tag once before which can be found here after I had just finished the first four seasons of the show and decided that I would do the tag again after I had finished all 9 seasons πŸ™‚ It is such a good show and I absolutely loved it πŸ™‚

Favourite Character: Brooke Davis- I absolutely love Brooke Davis, although she definitely made some questionable choices in the first few seasons she became a fierce friend and is definitely a Badass! I am so happy that she finally found what she always wished for with Julian and she grows up so much throughout the season πŸ™‚

Favourite Side Character: I think my favourite side character is actually Alex Dupre- I actually really liked her and Chase together and she grows up so much throughout the series πŸ™‚ I was really sad when she decided to go on tour instead of staying with him 😦

High School Years or Adult years? I think I would have to go for the high school years although I do love the adult years as well πŸ™‚

Favourite Parents? Deffo Nathan and Hayley- they were such good parents to Jamie despite being so young themselves πŸ™‚

Karens Cafe or Clothes over Bros- I do love clothes over Bros but I think that I prefer Karens Cafe because it is the background for many iconic moments in the first few seasons πŸ™‚

Favourite couple: Hayley and Nathan or Brooke and Julian I can’t decide!! I love them both for different reasons and can’t choose between them 😦 I think Nathan and Hayley are definitely soulmates and I absolutely love them together but I feel like Brooke and Julian just fit together and fought for each other and I’m so glad Brooke found her someone πŸ™‚

Favourite friendship- I think my favourite friendship is Brooke and Millicent or Hayley and Lucas πŸ™‚ Hayley and Lucas have stood the test of time but Millicent and Brooke support each other through their struggles and work really well together πŸ™‚

Your favourite scene- I think my favourite scene is probably when Nathan gives Hayley the bracelet for the first time because we get a small glimpse of what their relationship will end up being and its the first glimpse of the good part of Nathan Scott. I also love the scene where Julian walks in on Brooke dancing in her store πŸ™‚

Favourite Quote- Most people are stronger than they know. They just forget to believe in it sometimes.

Least favourite character: Xavier Daniels- I don’t really think this needs any explanation πŸ™‚

Which character are you most like? I would have to say that I’m a mixture of Brooke and Hayley

Favourite character development? Definitely Nathan- He goes through so much throughout the seasons and goes from an immature teenager who treats Peyton badly to the most amazing husband and father πŸ™‚

When did you cry the most? There are so many points throughout the series that I cried- The School shooting episode or when Ellie died, when Hayleys mother died and when Brooke almost dies in the car accident and obviously Quentins death 😦

Let me know in the comments if you have ever seen One Tree hill and if you have who is your favourite characterΒ πŸ™‚

Windsor 2021 :)

Windsor 2021 :)

On the morning of the 7th of August I jumped on a train to meet my two friends Hannah and Anna in Windsor which was so much fun πŸ™‚ When we first arrived the changing of the guard was happening which was absolutely amazing- we didn’t realise that it would be happening at that point but it was so so cool πŸ™‚

Once the changing of the guard was finished we then went into the castle and did an audioguide which was so much fun πŸ™‚ The castle is beautiful and we had so much fun looking round and seeing all of the amazing architecture and tapestries. We also looked around St Georges Chapel and I lit a candle whilst I was in there which is something I do in all of the chapels that I go to πŸ™‚

After our tour of the castle we went for some lunch which was really tasty! We then dumped our bags in the hotel and did a bit of shopping- we are all massive book nerds so popped into Waterstones and also WHSmith because I needed to buy an IPhone charger πŸ™‚

We walked towards castle while shopping and decided to finish our sightseeing for the day by walking along The Long Walk which is a long walk (hence the name :P) where there are processions towards the castle and it was lot of fun- it is a 50 minute walk each way but we were chatting as we walked so it was really nice πŸ™‚

After the long walk we decided to go for dinner at Honest Burger which was so so delicious!! I have been to Honest Burger once in London at the Holborn branch and it was so so nice πŸ™‚ I love the fact that as well as their signature burgers they have a burger of the month and each location has its own burger πŸ™‚

After dinner we headed back to the hotel and chilled which was lovely and organised ourselves for the next day πŸ™‚

The next day we woke up and headed out for brunch πŸ™‚ We went to a place called Browns which was right next to the river so we had a lovely view while we ate our food and had some smoothies and coffee πŸ™‚ The food was delicious and it was so much fun πŸ™‚

After food we then decided to have a wander along the river, we saw some swans, chatted and saw some other cool bits along the way and it was a lovely way to end our trip πŸ™‚ We went past Alexandra Gardens and saw some really cool fountains πŸ™‚

Let me know in the comments if you have ever been to Windsor and if you have what was your favourite part πŸ™‚
