My favourite lyrics from The Prom :)

My favourite lyrics from The Prom :)

While re-reading all of my old musical theatre lyrics posts I realised that none of them included lyrics from Beetlejuice or The Prom which are now two of my favourite musicals so I thought that I would write out some of my favourite lyrics from the Prom this week and then in a few weeks time I will write about Beetlejuice πŸ™‚

  1. I just wanna dance with you, let the whole world melt away and dance with you- Dance with you
  2. Improve all of your strong points, And hide things that you lack, Cause mom’s convinced if you’re perfect, Your father will might come back- Alyssa Greene
  3. I can guess your whole agenda, You be Elphie, I’m Glinda, It’s makeover time so why not just give in- Tonight Belongs to you
  4. One thing’s universal, Life’s no dress rehearsal, So why not make some waves before it’s through- Tonight Belongs to you
  5. So hear my plea, Or here’s your next dilemma, How do you silence a woman who’s known for her belt?- Its not about me
  6. Try journaling, Or start a blog, Just end this inner monologue, Seethe, if you must, But just breathe- Just Breathe
  7. Not to oversimplify, But the scripture does imply, That your mom will have to die, How’s tomorrow if she’s not got any plans?- Love Thy Neighbour
  8. Make people see how the world could one day be, It might come true if we take a chance, But ’til that day comes, I say cue the drums And take to the floor That’s what the floor’s for- Its time to Dance
  9. But I promise with some time, That my aptitude will climb, And you’ll leave your doubts, And disbeliefs behind!- The Ladys Improving
  10. There’s not one subject that I could pass, Before you walked into my Spanish class, Was my heart pounding? I won’t say no, ‘Cause life without you was no bueno- You Happened

Let me know in the comments if you have seen The Prom either in person or on Netflix and what your favourite song is from the musical πŸ™‚

My life is changing and I’m going to keep you updated: Chapter 8 recap and Chapter 9 aims :)

My life is changing and I’m going to keep you updated: Chapter 8 recap and Chapter 9 aims :)

On the 9th of July 2020 I uploaded my Month 1 aims for my Changing my life series and now I’ve just finished Chapter 8 of my Changing My Life series and am very excited to get started on my Chapter 9 aims πŸ™‚ Chapter 8 has been really focused on really settling into my new workout routine, celebrating a few special occasions and GYSTING and organising my space πŸ™‚

Favourite quote of the month: Believe you can and you’re halfway there πŸ™‚

England is in the midst of its third nationwide lockdown which is slowly starting to lift at the start of the next month which is very very exciting!! I have made some plans to meet up (within the Covid rules ofc) with some friends next month which is so exciting and will also hopefully be carrying on with some of the creative ways I have been interacting with friends and family who I can’t see in person for example Skypes, book clubs with one of my friends, and doing Yoga classes and then chatting about them with my brother πŸ™‚

  • Cook something new once a week :)- I have been really really enjoying cooking this month and have actually cooked twice a week most weeks πŸ™‚ We have been having a Hello Fresh box delivered every week for the past month as we had a discount code which allowed us to get a discount on our first 4 boxes πŸ™‚ I have made Sweet and sour chicken, different kinds of wraps, a chicken curry, hoisin chicken with rice, speedy chicken noodles, a ricotta pasta and a bacon pasta, a pad thai and finally a chicken curry on naan bread type dish πŸ™‚
  • Sort out a different part of my room every week πŸ™‚ – The first part of my bedroom that I organised was my electronics drawer that was just a muddle of cords and old electronics so that is now looking a lot more organised πŸ™‚ I then organised my notebook drawer which was already pretty organised to be honest but I had a look through to see what notebooks I actually have because I can be a bit of a notebook fiend who hoards notebooks but never actually uses them! (please tell me someone can relate to this- they’re just so pretty and I don’t want to ruin them!) I then tackled my PJ drawer which was an absolute mess that wouldn’t shut so that is now looking a lot more organised πŸ™‚ Finally I organised my two hair drawers which were a complete disaster! My mum is a hairdresser who also works in a beauty department so I am often getting given different products to try which is lovely but also means that my beauty drawers are very often full and messy!
  • Celebrate Barghavi and Billys birthday and also Mothers day :)- The first birthday for me to celebrate in March was my friend Barghavi’s birthday so we organised for her to come over and spend the day with my Aunts dog Luna who we had looked after while Barghavi was isolating here in November πŸ™‚ I also baked some Biscoff muffins which are her favourite and put up some balloons and banners as well and it was a really nice chill day πŸ™‚ My brother Billys birthday was actually the same day as Mothers day so we organised for my two brothers to come round for a Linner (lunch/dinner) in the garden which was so so lovely πŸ™‚
  • Run twice a week and do Yoga at least 4 times a week :)- I have actually managed to stick to this which I am so proud of myself for πŸ™‚ I have been going on a bit of a health journey recently and trying to find a good balance of food and exercise etc and have been really enjoying pushing myself πŸ™‚
  • Continue working on my training knowledge, teach Maya a new trick and do a work webinar every week :)- I have been working with Maya three times a week just doing some obedience training which I have really really enjoyed and during this time I have managed to teach Maya a new trick- bow πŸ™‚ We are still working on all of the basics and the few newer tricks we have been learning such as hold, beg, weave and crawl πŸ™‚ I have also been watching and reading lots of training stuff which has been really informative and interesting πŸ™‚
  • Reach 1575 followers on my blog and do a photoshoot :)- During Barghavis birthday weekend she popped round on the Saturday which was so so nice and we actually did a photoshoot in my local woods which was so much fun especially since I had recently purchased some Taylor Swift inspired clothing based around her Folklore and Evermore albums πŸ™‚ I have also reached 1575 followers on my blog which is just absolutely AMAZING and I’m so grateful to every single person who follows me on here ❀ ❀

I have had such a lot of fun these last few months working through my goals and sorting my life out and am so ready to continue on this trajectory and get more goals done next month πŸ™‚

  • Cook something new once a week πŸ™‚
  • Continue sorting out a different part of my room every week and start gathering my stuff together for Charity shops and Depop πŸ™‚
  • Go shopping at some point in the month πŸ™‚
  • See some of my friends in person and have a skype session πŸ™‚
  • Continue working out semi regularly and complete the Spring Yoga challenge on the Bad Yogi Studio πŸ™‚
  • Continue working on my training knowledge, and do a work webinar every week πŸ™‚
  • Reach 1600 followers on my blog and do at least one photoshoot πŸ™‚

Let me know in the comments if you have any ideas of goals I should try πŸ™‚

March Favourites 2021 :)

March Favourites 2021 :)
  • Moxie- I read this book a few years ago while on holiday in Mexico and absolutely LOVED it!! It was one of my favourite books and I still think about it to this day πŸ™‚ When they announced that they were making this into a movie I was so so excited and it did not disappoint πŸ™‚ If you fancy an easy watch feminist movie then this is the perfect movie πŸ™‚ It discusses many important topics in todays society mixed in with some teen drama and feminist manifestos πŸ™‚
  • Demi Lovato- Dancing with the Devil- I have been a big Demi Lovato fan since she was on the Disney channel in Camp Rock and Sonny with a chance and have followed her battle with mental health and addiction and have watched her two other documentaries Simply Complicated and Staying Strong so stayed up late to watch the first two part of this documentary and it was amazing and so raw and I’m so happy she seems to be doing better and am so excited for this new chapter of music πŸ™‚
  • Wandavision- I am a huge Marvel Nerd and am so excited for this new phase of Disney+ Marvel shows!! Wanda is one of my favourite Marvel characters and her and Vision are my favourite couple in the MCU πŸ™‚ I loved the new characters being introduced especially Agatha and the inclusion of some other characters from the MCU e.g. Darcy and Monica Rambeau πŸ™‚
  • Brooklyn 99 Season 7- Brooklyn 99 is one of my FAVOURITE tv show so I was so excited for the new seasons so watched it while it was airing in the US but have rewatched it (in an afternoon….. ooops) since it came onto Netflix and absolutely loved it just as much as when I watched it the first time πŸ™‚
  • Raya and the last dragon- THIS IS ONE OF MY NEW FAVOURITE DISNEY MOVIE!!! I loved all of the characters, Raya and Sisu are absolutely amazing and Tuk-Tuk is adorable!! I have been meaning to re-watch it since watching it for the first time on Barghavis birthday at the start of the month and definitely will be at some point in the near future πŸ™‚
  • CommonRoomCandleCO- One of my favourite Tiktokers does a segment where she talks about some of her favourite Harry potter themed small businesses and this company came up a few weeks ago and I was so intrigued that I decided to order a few candles as I was running low- the candles smell absolutely AMAZING and when they arrived you could see how much care and love had been put into not just the candles but the packaging of the items as well πŸ™‚ If you are a Harry Potter fan I would highly recommend checking out her website and I believe that she is releasing some Percy Jackson themed candles soon as well πŸ™‚

Let me know in the comments what you have been loving this month πŸ™‚

Monemvasia and Olympia in Greece in 1968 :)

Monemvasia and Olympia in Greece in 1968 :)

My mum found her Great-Grandmas travel diaries a while ago and I have been typing them up for her to read and thought I would put them on here as well- If you want a little bit more background read part one Β here πŸ™‚

Monemvasia 

Often called the Greek Gibraltar , it is a rock mountain, nearly 1000ft high, that was manouvered by the earthquake of AD 345 and juts out of the sea; it has been united with the mainland by a causeway and bridge; its name means β€œone way” and beyond the single cast iron gate, the way is by foot. The town used to be called Malmsey. Malmasia or Malmvisie, after the famous wine made there. No vines could grow on the hills, but the mountains owned vast vineyards near Mount Parnon and in the aegean islands. During the war it was the headquarters of the resistance army and English and American ships and submarines called during the night to pick up and land resistance men. The old metropolis housed 4000 people, but all is now in ruins, a jumble of small ruins overgrown by big thistles, succulents and small rock plants dripping out of the broken walls. Along the skyline is the jagged shape of the ruined guardhouse with its skeletal chimney. Monemvasia is a walled town, out of sight, round the southern part of the monument. A cobbled way leads through the village, at the end of it are several Byzatine churches. The Cathedral of the Crucified Christ lies in a square below the level of the cobbled path, down a flight of steps: the square has low walls, looks out to sea and is filled with coloured plants. Inside the cathedral are fine paintings and Ikons. The village consists of pink tiled roofed houses jumbled along the edge of the sea, white steps, winding and rocky paths. The church of the summit, Hagia Sophia is very old, a good marble carving is round the doorways, and paintings and Ikons within. The old Turkish powder magazine is still there, roofed and with sweid granite and cut into the granite rock; the floor is at level to allow the powder to be loaded to the mules and in past times, when Monemvasia was under siege, the people were reduced to eating cats and rats. 

Olympia 

Here there is no town to break the pastoral spell, the ruins are set in pine tree surroundings and meadows; the ruins are not bare and dusty, but grassy and peaceful. The largest structure is the Temple of Zeus, which together with the whole complex was constructed (4 B.C.) it is very ruined although some parts have been slightly restored; the few remains intact and the alter of which were burnt, as sacrifices, the thighs of white oxen. The Temple of Hera is so old that the original pillars were wooden, it was to this temple, between 2 pillars still standing, that the Olympian torch, lit by rays from the sun, was taken by 4 greek dancers and handed to runners of the Olympian games. The base of the temple remains and many of the wooden columns are still in place; the stone, of which all of the buildings of Olympia were made, is not marble, consequently the columns are well weatherworn and the fluting nearly flat. This stone material was a conglomerate embedded with sea shells and river pebbles, the stone was then intertwined with a stucco made from marble dust; even the ground by these fallen columns is gritty with crushed shell patches. In this Temple to Heram all the columns were of a different shape. The stadium was reached by a walled passage over a vaulted tunnel; there were no seats for spectators, they sat on the turf, which formed an embankment, sweeping up from the track. The track was 230 yards long and 33 yards wide, the toe grip grooves can still be seen, cut into the stone pavement at the starting line. The Temple of Priests is a block of dwellings for the priests, it is very large, rectangular in shape; its pillars nearly all broken, but standing upright for several feet. The Workshop of Phideas is here at Olympia, a fairly small place, but where he made his 40ft high statue of Zeus to be placed in the Temple of Zeus. To reach the workshop, a flight of steps descends, and adjoining the workshop, is a Byzatine church using one of the old buildings as its area; in this now ruined church is a pair of beautifully sculptured marble gates and a sculptured pillar; the gates are partly ruined. The Palaestra (gymnasium) has a sand covered counrtyard, 70ft square; it is surrounded by a building with a Doric colonnade- ; here the boxers and wrestlers practised, with other athletes. The columns are now in ruins, just a few whole ones remain standing, the rest are scattered all around. The Great Gymnasium is practically an open space for the contestants to exercise and practice. Near this are the quarters where they lived and trained, it was compulsory for them to train for 10 months, with free board. There were also baths, hot and cold, and an elaborate residence for distinguished visitors. The Great Council Hall was near the gymnasium; here the Senate used to meet. The Sacred Grove is walled and contains the remains of many statues, of both visitors and gods; at one time there were nearly 1000 here. Near the entrance to the stadium and the remains of the old treasury, reached by climbing up a slope and in good state of preservation especially the arches near the entrances. There is a line of treasuries belonging to distant places, as Syracuse, Bzyantinium or Sybaris, the Greek city in Italy. Opposite the old east treasury is one end of the long Stoa, the Painted Colonnade, and between these 2 is the tunnel entrance to the stadium.

Let me know in the comments if you have ever been to either of these places and or if you have been to Greece what your favourite place was you visited πŸ™‚

Top 10 Demi Lovato Song Lyrics :)

Top 10 Demi Lovato Song Lyrics :)

In honour of Demi releasing her 7th Studio album next month I thought that I would list some of my favourite Demi Lovato lyrics from her previous songs and albums πŸ™‚ I’m so excited for Demis new era as she seems to be in a good place currently and I have always been a big fan of her music and mental health advocacy throughout the years πŸ™‚ I have written a post listing my favourite songs of hers so far which can be found here.

  1. ‘Whats wrong with being confident??’- Confident
  2. Now I’m out here looking like revenge, Feelin’ like a 10, the best I ever been, And yeah, I know how bad it must hurt, To see me like this, but it gets worse- Sorry Not Sorry
  3. I’m my own worst critic, Talk a whole lot of shit, But I’m a ten out of ten, Even when I forget- I Love Me
  4. You can take everything I have, You can break everything I am, Like I’m made of glass, Like I’m made of paper, Go on and try to tear me down, I will be rising from the ground- Skyscraper
  5. Now I’ve got thicker skin, I’m a warrior, I’m stronger than I’ve ever been , And my armor, is made of steel, you can’t get in, I’m a warrior,  And you can never hurt me again- Warrior
  6. I need a voice to echo, I need a light to take me home , Kinda need a hero, is it you?, I never see the forest for the trees , I could really use your melody- Nightingale
  7. Baby when they look up at the sky, we’ll be shooting stars just passing by- Neon Lights
  8. I’m losing myself, trying to compete With everyone else Instead of just being me- Believe in Me
  9. It feels like someone’s stolen all the light I ever had. Like the world disappeared and I’m laying right here while the silence is piercing and it hurts to breathe- Still have me
  10. You try to smile it away, some things you can’t disguise- Give your heart a break

Let me know in the comments if you listen to Demis music and if you do what your favourite song and lyric is πŸ™‚

Book Tag Shelfie Pt 1 :)

Book Tag Shelfie Pt 1 :)

I have been really inspired recently to read more as I have more time on my hands due to the current lockdown in the UK and also I started a book club with my friend Hannah πŸ™‚ I have always loved reading and have quite the collection of books on my bookshelf and on my kindle so 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™‚

I’m starting off with the first row of my bottom shelf πŸ™‚

1.) Is there any reason for this shelf being organised the way it is or is it purely random? I organise my books randomly but will keep Authors/series together if I can πŸ™‚ I actually need to go through and organise my bookshelves soon because I have recently bought some new books and need to organise them properly πŸ™‚

2.) Tell us a story about one of the books on this shelf that is special to you i.e. how you got it/ a memory associated with it etc.– My favourite book on this shelf is probably All I know Now by Carrie Hope Fletcher because it was actually signed by Carrie when I met her at the Les Mis stage door which was so so cool! ❀

3.) Which book from this shelf would you ditch if you were forced to and why?– I think the book I would ditch from this shelf would be MyLifeisEva by Eva Gutowski simply because I prefer fiction to non-fiction/autobiographies πŸ™‚

4.) Which book from this shelf would you save in an emergency and why? Definitely All I know now by Carrie hope Fletcher due to the memory attached to it πŸ™‚

5.) Which book has been on this shelf for the longest time?– I think that would probably be Ballet shoes by Noel Streatfeild as I read this book as a kid and then rediscovered my love for it when I watched the movie with Emma Watson and then again when Carrie Hope Fletcher released Into the Spotlight πŸ™‚

6.) Which book is the newest addition to this shelf?– Fate The Winx Sage The Fairies Path which I actually ordered only a few weeks ago after watching the Netflix series and absolutely loving it πŸ™‚

7.) Which book from this shelf are you most excited to read (or re-read if this is a favourites shelf?)– I’m really excited to read the three books on the top of the shelf as these are the three books that I have yet to read πŸ™‚ I think the one I’m most excited to read is The Shelf by Helly Acton

8.) If there is an object on this shelf apart from books, tell us the story behind it.– This shelf actually doesn’t have any objects on it but the one above has loads so I will talk about all of them when I do my next SHELFIE πŸ™‚

9.) What does this shelf tell us about you as a reader?– I think this shelf tells you that I like fiction books and also that I like musical theatre, fantasy and photography 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™‚

Ranking Dreamworks Movies :)

In May 2020 I went through and ranked all of the Pixar movies according to the God Tier, Top Tier, Mid Tier and Awful Tier rating system and I actually really enjoyed doing it and after watching a few Dreamworks films over the weekend I thought that I would go through some of the Dreamworks movies and rank them however this is only my opinion ❀

2021 Reading Challenge Part 1 :)

2021 Reading Challenge Part 1 :)

At the start of February Hannah– who has just revamped and restarted her blog which is amazing so be sure to check out her blog- and I started a book club where the plan was to read a book a month and then discuss it however we have actually ended up reading three books in the month of February which was so much fun πŸ™‚ My 2021 reading challenge was to read 24 books this year however I have been running through books pretty quickly so I might be able to read a few more which is exciting πŸ™‚

  1. Dream a little Christmas Dream by Giovanna Fletcher: 8/10
  2. Christmas with Billy and Me by Giovanna Fletcher: 8/10

These first two books were both cute Christmas themed Novellas based on two of Giovanna’s longer books which I absolutely loved πŸ™‚ I had read both of the longer books previously and because I started these books in January I was still feeling slightly Christmassy so picked two Christmas themed books for my first two books of the year πŸ™‚

  1. A Good Girls Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson: 10/10- This book was actually the first of Hannah and I’s book club picks and was actually Hannahs choice and I absolutely loved it!! I think this has been my favourite of the book club books that we have read so far, I loved the suspense and there were so many twists and turns that I had no idea what was going to happen on the next page and the ending was absolutely fantastic as there were more twists than you thought there were going to be and more depth to the story πŸ™‚ I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of suspense/murder mystery books πŸ™‚
  2. Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan: 10/10- I started the Percy Jackson series in 2020 but only got around to reading the first book so I then decided to read the second book as I really enjoyed the first one and absolutely love Greek Mythology πŸ™‚ I loved this book and am so so excited to see what happens next in the third book! I have watched the first two Percy Jackson films but the books were so much better!!
  3. All Your Twister Secrets by Diana Urban: 8/10- This was my pick for the second book club book and I really liked it πŸ™‚ The book was so good but I was slightly disappointed with the ending as I feel like the ending didn’t correlate with the rest of the book as the person who was commiting the crimes personality didn’t fit with the type of person who would have needed to pull this off and also while discussing the end of the book Hannah and I came up with a few different things that could/should have been different and would have changed the book so much based on the ending.
  4. CliqueBait by Ann Valett: 8/10- This was Hannahs second book club pick and again I really liked the book but the ending was a slight let down as I felt like the basis for the revenge wasn’t really strong enough which kind of tarnished the rest of the book as there was this huge build up and then it was a bit of a fail however I really enjoyed the rest of the book and again the different twists throughout πŸ™‚

Let me know in the comments if you have read any of these books and if you have what you thought πŸ™‚ Also let me know any book suggestions for Hannah and I’s book club πŸ™‚

My life is changing and I’m going to keep you updated: Chapter 7 recap and Chapter 8 aims :)

My life is changing and I’m going to keep you updated: Chapter 7 recap and Chapter 8 aims :)

On the 9th of July 2020 I uploaded my Month 1 aims for my Changing my life series and now I’ve just finished Chapter 7 of my Changing My Life series and am very excited to get started on my Chapter 8 aims πŸ™‚ Chapter 7 has been really focused on finding new routines that incorporate my New Years Resolutions and spending time with friends and family πŸ™‚

Favourite quote of the month: Act as if what you do makes a difference- it does! πŸ™‚

England is in the midst of its third nationwide lockdown so I have had to come up with creative ways to interact with friends and family who I can’t see in person for example Skypes, organising a book club with one of my friends, sending cards and meeting up for walks and doing Yoga classes and then chatting about them with my brother πŸ™‚

  • Cook something new :)- I have actually cooked 4 different things this month as my Mum and I have been trying to cook more from scratch so have both been cooking quite a bit πŸ™‚ The first thing I made was a Chicken, leek and Tarragon Gnocchi which was absolutely delish! I then made a Korma which was still tasty but needed slightly more flavour so am going to try and make it again with a few more spices added in at some point πŸ™‚ I then made a Chicken Fajita fried rice which was delish!! Finally I made a tomato, spinach and feta egg scramble from a cookbook my brother bought me which was really nice πŸ™‚
  • Sort out 2 parts of my room :)- I have been really trying to be more minimalistic this year and working on not buying unnecessary things and a part of this has been slowly but surely organising my stuff πŸ™‚ This month I organised my workout drawer because I have been running and doing Yoga regularly this month so have been using this drawer quite a bit πŸ™‚ I have also had a sort-out of my plants and moved them around so that they are not so squished together on my windowsill and also got my mums friend who is a gardener to re-pot a few of them πŸ™‚ Finally I got around to putting together a Night Sky Projection kit that I bought from WHSmith before Christmas but hadn’t got around to putting it together πŸ™‚
  • Skype with Anna and Hannah :)- I actually Skyped Anna and Hannah on the 15th of February for Galentines day πŸ™‚ I had sent some galentines cards to a few of my friends and then did a galentines day with my friend Barghi where we went for a walk in the park and then a skype session with Anna and Hannah on the 15th which was so nice ❀ it was so nice to chat to them both and am hoping that we will get together for another Skype session soon πŸ™‚ xx
  • Celebrate Mayas birthday- Mayas birthday is the 2nd of February so I bought her lots of new toys, took her out for a nice walk, bought her a woofin with a candle and a little birthday bandana πŸ™‚ Barghavi also came round for a walk with Maya as well which was really nice πŸ™‚ I can’t believe she is now 2!
  • Run twice a week and complete the 30 day yoga challenge :)- On the 6th of January I started a 30 day yoga challenge with my brother Jamie and so during February we finished off the last few days while was really fun and has ignited a love of Yoga πŸ™‚ I have continued to do Yoga around 5ish days a week since completing the challenge which has been really fun πŸ™‚ I have also been running twice a week as well πŸ™‚
  • Continue working on my training knowledge and do a work webinar- I have trained with Maya three times a week this month as well which is always really fun and have also completed two work based webinars, watched three work based videos a week and have been watching training videos as well πŸ™‚
  • Reach 1550 followers on my blog and do a photoshoot :)- I amazingly did manage to reach 1550 followers on my blog this month which is just AMAZING so thank you so much and have also done a few little photoshoots with my phone but definitely need to get my camera back out for some proper photoshoots next month πŸ™‚

I have had such a lot of fun these last few months working through my goals and sorting my life out and am so ready to continue on this trajectory and get more goals done next month πŸ™‚
