Theatre programme Pt 3 πŸ˜Š

Theatre programme Pt 3 πŸ˜Š

I absolutely love musical theatre and always buy a programme whenever I go so I thought I would update my last two Theatre Programme collections with the shows that I have seen so far this year as I have been lucky enough to see quite a few 😊

1. This is my programme from when my Mum and I went to see Hex the musical at the National theatre in January. It was actually my brother and his girlfriend that got us the tickets for this show for Christmas which was so lovely of them ❀️ I feel like this show is a mixture of Wicked and Into the Woods. Favourite song: Make it all good Any Celebrities? Not that I know of

2. This is my programme from when my Mum and I went to see Bring it On at the Southbank Centre in January 😊 I am a big Lin Manuel Miranda fan and also love this film so I have been looking forward to seeing this show for AGES and was meant to see this show twice before as due to Covid it kept getting postponed or cancelled. Favourite song? We Ain’t No Cheerleaders or What I was born to do. Any Celebrities? Amber Davies from Love Island was playing Campbell which was pretty cool 😊

3. This is my programme from when my Mum and I went to see The Drifters Girl in February which was pretty cool 😊 This was a show that my Mum really wanted to see but I wasn’t that bothered as I didn’t really know any of the drifters songs but it was so interesting learning their story and the songs were really good. Favourite song? Under the Boardwalk. Any celebrities? Beverly Knight plays the main woman in the show Faye Treadwell

4. This is my programme from when my Mum and I went to see Pretty Woman in February which I would say was both of our picks 😊 I watched the film a few years ago and really liked it and then we saw a few bits from the show on different things including West End Live and thought it looked really good ❀️ I actually thought the best character from the show was the narrator who definitely stole the show! Favourite song? Welcome to Hollywood or Anywhere but here Any celebrities in the show? Not that I know of.

5. This is my programme from when my Mum, my Grandma and I went to see Tina the musical in April. We booked this show during London Theatre Week on TodayTix which meant we got pretty good seats for pretty cheap and it was so interesting learning about her life and I was pleasantly surprised how many songs of hers I knew! Favourite song? River Deep Mountain High or What’s Love Got to do with it. Any celebrities in the show? Not that I know of.

6. This is my programme from Jersey Boys when my Mum and I went to see it in April. This was another show that we booked as part of London Theatre week and was one that I really wanted to go see as I had never seen it before but my Mum had seen it once before. It was really good actually as the Four Seasons had a really interesting career and the person who played Frankie Valli was really good! Favourite song? Oh what a Night or Walk like a man probably but all of the songs were really good Any celebrities? Not that I know of

Let me know in the comments if you have seen any of the shows I have listed here 😊

My life is changing and I’m going to keep you updated- Chapter 16 recap and Chapter 17 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 16 of my Changing My Life series and am very excited to get started on my Chapter 17 aims πŸ™‚

Favourite quote of the month: Don’t let yesterday take up too much of today

It has been a really fun few months including a trip away to the Spa and a weekend away to Edinburgh which was so so lovely πŸ™‚ I absolutely love going away for weekends and definitely want to do it more often πŸ™‚ I would love to get further with my goals and really work on myself in the following months πŸ™‚

Cook twice a week :)- This has been one of my most consistent goals that I have been able to work on and finesse since starting this challenge and I have been doing quite a bit of cooking. Some of my favourite dinners that I have cooked is chicken gnocchi, butter chicken, beef keema naans, noodles and finally lots of other bits as well πŸ™‚


Update my CV and Linkedin- I still have not done this yet which is absolutely ridiculous and will be one of my main goals in the next chapter!
Watch work videos and dog training videos- I have kept up with my two main dog training videos and have also started watching work videos again which I am going to try and keep up with in the following months.


Go to Edinburgh- I had an absolutely AMAZING time in Edinburgh with my Mum at the start of March πŸ™‚ We spent 4 days there and did a lot of sightseeing, ate some amazing food, had drinks and just had a generally lovely time πŸ™‚ I think some of my favourite moments were climbing up to Arthurs Seat, exploring Edinburgh castle and Holyrood house πŸ™‚


Spa day- One of my brothers usually gets my Mum and I a spa day voucher for Christmas and this year was no different πŸ™‚ This year my brother got us a voucher for Greenwood hotel and spa and it was so lovely πŸ™‚ I ended up reading the second Bridgeton book whilst floating around in the pool, we had some lovely food and just chilled πŸ™‚


Continue to sort out my Bedroom and organise my life- maybe do a bit of a spring clean: I have done a little bit of a GYST this chapter however probably not as much as I would like to because I have just been really busy with life and other things. I have started growing some tomatoes which is really fun πŸ™‚ I ended up going to a cousins wedding during the easter bank holiday weekend, I have been to see lots of musicals including Tina and Jersey boys πŸ™‚ I have also been to a few concerts and went on a work night out πŸ™‚

This chapter has been a bit all over the place and I’m excited to see what else is to come πŸ™‚ I think my next chapter will lead up to my 25th BIRTHDAY!!! I cannot believe that I am going to be a quarter of the century on the 4th of July!! I have a few goals which I am hoping to achieve by then which I will list below πŸ™‚

  • Cook twice a week
  • Take Maya to Selsey for the weekend
  • Write a letter to my 30 year old self
  • Spend time with friends and family πŸ™‚
  • Update my CV and Linkedin
  • GYST

Let me know in the comments if you have any ideas of what goals I should choose for next time πŸ™‚

My life is changing and I’m going to keep you updated- Chapter 15 recap and Chapter 16 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 15 of my Changing My Life series and am very excited to get started on my Chapter 16 aims πŸ™‚ Chapter 15 has been focused on trying to work on my New Years resolutions.

Favourite quote of the month: She rescues him right back from Pretty Woman

February has been a really fun month with lots of exciting things that I have done including lots of good food, organising stuff which has been on my to-do list for ages, saw a couple of shows and celebrated Mayas third birthday!! I can’t believe we’ve had her for almost 3 years now!!

  • Cook at least twice a week- During one of the lockdowns we started to get Hello fresh which is a delivery service that drops off boxes of ingredients and a recipe for you to follow which we have been absolutely loving so I have been cooking for my family pretty consistently 2-3 times a week for a while πŸ™‚ Some of our favourite recipies this month include: Harissa chicken, Halloumi tacos, lots of tomato pastas, quick chilli, beef tostadas
  • Spend time with family and celebrate Mayas birthday: As mentioned in my favourite post we decided to go to Brighton on Mayas birthday which was such a lovely day ☺️ she got utterly spoilt with new toys as well!
  • Spend time with friends and see a show: My Mum and I actually went to see two different shows this month which were The Drifters Girl and Pretty Woman The Musical both of which were really fun! I have also this month seen my friend Hannah to go to a Van Gogh exhibit and also saw my friend Dorothy for dinner at a place called Eataly ☺️
  • Sort out my Charity shop/Depop pile: I actually did this relatively early in the month and have taken the bags of stuff to the charity and uploaded everything else to Depop and have even sold my first item!
  • Dye my hair- I actually dyed my hair on the 26th of February and I absolutely love it!! I have had red hair before and as most of you will already know am usually a blonde so this time I thought I would combine the best of both worlds and blend the two ☺️
  • Update my CV and Linkedin- I still haven’t done this which is a bit ridiculous so I will make sure to add it to my list for next month!!
  • Watch 3 work videos a week and also dog training videos- I have been really lax at watching YT videos this month as I have been really busy doing other bits but I will also try and get on this next month πŸ™‚

Last month was full of ups and downs as I did relatively well on some of my goals but on some I really slacked so it would be nice if next month I could complete all of my goals πŸ™‚

  • Cook twice a week πŸ™‚
  • Update my CV and Linkedin
  • Watch work videos and dog training videos
  • Go to Edinburgh
  • Spa day!
  • Continue to sort out my Bedroom and organise my life- maybe do a bit of a spring clean?

Let me know in the comments if you have any ideas for goals for the rest of the year πŸ™‚

January Favourites 2022 :)

January Favourites 2022 :)

Shadowhunters: I never really got into the Shadowhunters book series when it first came out however I did enjoy the movie with Lily Collins so when my friend Barghavi suggested that we watch the TV show recently I agreed and I really got into it!! Some of my favourite characters include Isabelle and my favourite couple is definitely Magnus and Alec πŸ™‚

I’m Trying (Not Friends) by Maisie Peters: This songs bridge went viral on TikTok throughout December and January and I am a big Maisie Peters fan so naturally I absolutely loved this song and have actually included it in my January playlist πŸ™‚ I like to sing this song in the car on the way home from work in the car πŸ™‚

Venom and Venom Let There Be Carnage: I watched the first Venom film quite a few years ago and did really enjoy it at the time however a few weekends ago my family and I sat down and did a binge watch of both Venom films and I absolutely loved them! I loved the relationship between Eddie Brock and Venom and the films are really funny πŸ™‚ I would definitely highly recommend these films especially if you like superhero movies πŸ™‚

Evidence of the affair by Taylor Jenkins Reid: I am a big fan of Taylor Jenkins Reids books and this Novella/Short Story is no different πŸ™‚ I really enjoy short stories and I actually read this book on my way home from work on the train one day πŸ™‚ Her writing is always simple but effective and she always chooses interesting characters and stories πŸ™‚

My favourite songs and lyrics from Bring it On The Musical :)

My favourite songs and lyrics from Bring it On The Musical :)

On the 18th of January I went to see the Bring It On the musical which was so amazing πŸ™‚ I have been wanting to see this show for AGES and have had it booked for around 2 years but due to Covid it had kept being postponed or cancelled. I love the original film and am also a big Lin Manuel Miranda fan so I loved the soundtrack!

Some of my favourite songs:

  • What I was Born to Do
  • One Perfect Moment
  • Do Your Own Thing
  • We Ain’t No Cheerleaders
  • It’s All Happening
  • It Aint No Thing
  • Enjoy The Trip
  • We’re Not Done
  • I Got You

Some of my favourite lyrics:

  • Because this dream that I’ve dreamed is becoming fulfilled, And I plan to enjoy it but right now, I don’t have the time- One Perfect Moment
  • We work and we fight and train and hustle, We get mani pedi’s but we’re made of muscle- What I was Born to Do
  • But hey, we’re finding our own way now, And isn’t that what being young’s all about?- Do Your Own Thing
  • When we roll through with our crew, No one can do what we do, it’s true, But we would still do it if no one was watching, And let’s be real, who could blame them for watching?- We Ain’t No Cheerleaders
  • β€˜Cause everyΒ day, we getΒ haters, WhoΒ sayΒ they can take us, Okay baby, If that helps you sleep at night- We Ain’t No Cheerleaders
  • We gonna gather up every good girl we know, We’ll get vertical β€˜til we get vertigo, Let’s show these hoes how to put on a show!- Its All Happening
  • Imagine the lights, imagine the people, Imagine us in the middle of the crowd, Imagine the fame, imagine the fortune- Its All Happening
  • Some kids used to tease me And put me through hell, Some people are mean But most people mean well, It’s just their thinkin’ is stinkin’β€”AndΒ a little outdated- Ain’t No Thing
  • Right now everything seems so important, but time rushes by at a clip and when you look back, these high school years will be nothing more than a blip so you might as well enjoy the trip- Enjoy The Trip
  • And in twenty years, It’s not a big ole trophy that I’ll miss, But I’ll always smile when I remember this, I got you (You)- I Got You

Let me know in the comments if you have seen the movie or musical πŸ™‚

My life is changing and I’m going to keep you updated- Chapter 14 recap and Chapter 15 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 14 of my Changing My Life series and am very excited to get started on my Chapter 15 aims πŸ™‚ Chapter 14 has been focused on getting back into the swing of life after Christmas and New Year πŸ™‚

Favourite quote of the month: It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live

Restrictions in the UK have been lifted for a while now which has been so nice πŸ™‚ I have seen a few friends since my last post, celebrated Christmas and New Years and have also been doing lots of organising e.g. sorting out my room, writing New Years resolutions, packing away Christmas presents and decor and also cooking lots of new dishes πŸ™‚

  • Cook new things and bake :)- I have been cooking lots since the last post due to the fact that we get Hello Fresh delivered every week so have been cooking around 3 times a week which is so much fun πŸ™‚ Some of my favourite dishes that I have made include: Harissa Chicken and Roasted Cauliflower, Chicken fried rice, Cajun Chicken Pasta, Thai Style Pork Bowl, Chorizo and Mozzarella Gnocchi, Harissa Chicken Naans, Butter Chicken Masala, BBQ Beef Rigatoni. I also baked some Gingerbread as a Christmas treat πŸ™‚
  • Complete my Christmas Bucket List: I actually did manage to complete my Christmas bucket list which was a lot of fun πŸ™‚ I had lots of different Christmassy things on that list which really got me into the Christmas spirit πŸ™‚
  • Spend time with friends and family- I spent some time with a few friends this month and last including going to Lifesize Monopoly with my two best friends and also going to flight club with friends πŸ™‚ I spent quite a bit of time with family over the Christmas period as well which was lovely as we didn’t get the chance to do that last year due to Covid restrictions πŸ™‚
  • Start making a financial plan: I have a few plans for this year with regards to finances and I have done a few different bits to help me along the way but obviously for security reasons I’m not going to talk too much about this πŸ™‚
  • Pack away all of my Christmas decorations and Christmas presents: I actually spent the day on the 2nd of January packing away all of my Christmas decor which took me a very long time
  • Start a New Years workout plan: I have been climbing a few times with my brother and its been a lot of fun πŸ™‚ I have also been back at work since the New Year which always involves lots of walking and movement πŸ™‚ I usually do around 15,000 steps a day at work but some days its slightly more or slightly less but I would like to add more workout ideas during the rest of the year.
  • Get back into the flow at work after Christmas: I have been back at work since the 4th of January and have definitely started to get back into the swing of things πŸ™‚ I would love to watch a few more work videos next month and also carry on learning different things πŸ™‚
  • Update my CV and Linkedin: I updated my Linkedin before Christmas but have yet to actually update my CV so thats something that I will add to my list of aims for next month πŸ™‚

I have had such a lot of fun these last few months working through my goals of starting to sort my life out through the start of the New Year and am hoping that by the end of this year my life will be slightly different and hopefully I will be moving in an upwards trajectory πŸ™‚

  • Cook at least twice a week
  • Spend time with family and celebrate Mayas birthday
  • Spend time with friends and see a show
  • Update my CV and Linkedin
  • Sort out my Charity shop/Depop pile
  • Watch 3 work videos a week and also dog training videos
  • Dye my hair

Blogmas Day 29: December Favourites 2021 :)

Blogmas Day 29: December Favourites 2021 :)

Spiderman No Way Home and Hawkeye: I am a massive Marvel fan and we have been so blessed this month with two AMAZING Marvel projects!! I have been really enjoying all of the Marvel TV shows that have been released and I think Hawkeye might be my favourite of all of the shows πŸ™‚ I am a big Hailee Steinfield fan so seeing her be introduced to the MCU was really cool and I’m a big fan of Yelena as a character πŸ™‚

Spiderman has always been one of my favourite MCU characters and this movie has had so much hype around it but it definitely lived up to it!! I don’t want to say too much more because it hasn’t been out for very long and I don’t want to give away any spoilers πŸ™‚

Enchanto Album: Many of you will already know that I am a big Lin Manuel Miranda fan so when I heard that he had written the songs for this new Disney film I was so happy and excited πŸ™‚ I absolutely love this album and I think my favourite song would have to be We Don’t talk about Bruno which is so funny! πŸ™‚

Brighton Lanes: Early this month my parents and I went to the Brighton Christmas festival and went shopping in all of the little shops in the lanes πŸ™‚ Some of my favourites include the flagship Lucy and Yak store, Berts Homestore and a few different Harry Potter/Comic books stores which are all really cool- I have always absolutely loved Brighton as a city for many reasons including the shopping and especially near to Christmas its an amazing place to look for interesting Christmas presents πŸ™‚

I don’t have a lot of favourites this month as a lot of this month has been taken up by Christmas shopping, working and spending lots of time with Maya which has been so much fun πŸ™‚

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