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™‚

Hosios Loukas, Livadeia and Piraeus July 1968 :)

Hosios Loukas, Livadeia and Piraeus July 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™‚

Hosios Loukas

This is the monastery of St Luke, built in the country, in a lived and rugged region, reached by a winding dusty road, miles away from anywhere. It contains the most beautiful mosaics in the whole of Greece, all are found in its church. The Church is Byzantine and its whole structure is supported by three underground catacombs, there is only one exceptionally narrow entrance down to the interior. Practically every conceivable space round the walls are covered by mosaics. Only a handful of monks, 19 in all, now live at the monastery, no now novices come, and in time the monastery will be left without its monks to care for it. St Luke was a holy man, who had the gift of prophecy, and he for-told the outcome of the Battle of Marathon: a century later he was commiserated and the church and the monastery were built and named after him in his memory. 

Livadeia 

This is the, supposedly, place of Lethe, water of forgetfulness; around the town and cotton fields and wheat plantations; the landscape is dotted with a low-growing shrub, in great numbers which give the appearance of stones scattered over the land. Nearby is Mount Parnassus, its lone heights reaching up 8000 ft, it reveals tints of colour in the rocks and is clumped with dwarf myrthe; the valley below is a great floor of shining olive trees. 

Piraeus 

This is the port of Athena, full of fishing kayaks; the harbour contains the large vessels; ferrying between the various and numerous islands. The port is linked to Athens by river after mile of great sprawling buildings; this area holds 2000000 Greeks, a quarter of the entire population of the country.

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™‚

Spoilt dog test :)

Spoilt dog test :)

I saw this challenge on TikTok and my family, friends and I are always joking that Maya is the most spoilt puppy ever so I thought I would go through these questions and actually see how spoilt she is πŸ™‚

  • They’re allowed on the couch or bed? She most definitely is πŸ™‚
  • Do you give them food off your plate? This one we actually don’t do for many reasons but mostly a) to stop her begging at the table and also she has a very sensitive stomach but she does occasionally get bits of chicken or steak in her bowl if we have extra πŸ™‚
  • They have a toy box- She actually has two…. one downstairs for when we’re watching tv of an evening and one in my bedroom so that she can play when she gets left at home if we’re out πŸ™‚
  • They sleep on your bed at night- She does occasionally- I only have a single bed so theres not really enough space but occasionally I will wake up to find her on the end of the bed.
  • They’ve had professional photos taken- I don’t actually think she has had professional photos taken πŸ™‚
  • They get Christmas and birthday presents- She does in fact get Christmas and Birthday presents which is really fun and she absolutely loves them πŸ™‚ She actually opens them herself which is so funny πŸ™‚
  • Humans greet them first before they greet other humans- 100%!!
  • They go on holiday with you- She has been on holiday with us before actually! When we went to our family caravan last summer we took her with us and we had so much fun πŸ™‚
  • They have their own social media- She does in fact have her own social media πŸ™‚
  • They have clothes/accessories- She has a few Christmas and Halloween outfits which are pretty cool

Maya got 8/10 on this spoilt dog test which means she is definitely a spoilt pooch!!

Friendsfest 2021 :)

Friendsfest 2021 :)

I have been wanting to go to Friendsfest for the last few years as I am a massive Friends fan!! I tentatively booked tickets for Friendsfest 2021 hoping that it would be allowed to go ahead and I am so so happy that it did πŸ™‚ I ended up going with my Mum and we had an absolutely AMAZING day πŸ™‚ When we first walked in and went to the left you started on the ‘Red Carpet’ and then moved onto the outside of Monicas door where you could re-create the iconic ‘floating heads scene’ which was so so much fun! Then you moved onto a selfie booth where they had lots of different signs with different quotes from the show πŸ™‚ Finally there was Phoebes taxi which was pretty cool πŸ™‚

We then moved onto Central Perk where there were three different official photo points and then ordered some hot chocolates and a blueberry muffin which was absolutely delish πŸ™‚ At this point we sat down to enjoy our drinks and food which was really nice- what I liked about Friendsfest and why it was able to go ahead as successfully as it did was because it was outside πŸ™‚

We then moved onto the next photo opportunity where you could recreate the title scenes, then we recreated the PIVOT scene which was so much fun and so funny! Then I did the “COULD I BE ANY MORE CLOTHES” scene which was so so cool and was done via green screen to make the experience more Covid friendly πŸ™‚

We then went for lunch and grabbed a slice of Pizza at Joeys Pizza and also went to the bar to get some cocktails πŸ™‚ The cocktails were all Friends themed which was really cool and they also had soft drinks and normal alcoholic beverages as well πŸ™‚ We then sat in front of the big screen which was really cool and they played some of the iconic scenes from the show πŸ™‚

Finally we had booked a Set Tour at 2.40 where you could do round and take photos in the three different apartments: Monica and Rachels, Chandler and Joey and then Ross/Ugly Naked Guys apartment πŸ™‚

Overall I had so so so much fun and I would highly recommend Friendsfest to any Friends fan πŸ™‚

Let me know in the comments if you are a Friends fan and if you are who is your favourite character πŸ™‚

What I got for my 24th Birthday :)

What I got for my 24th Birthday :)

*DISCLAIMER* I am not in any way trying to brag or show off I just love reading these types of posts and watching these kinds of videos so I thought I might try and do one myself ❀ *DISCLAIMER*

I have been so lucky this year especially during lockdown to receive some lovely presents which have all been super thoughtful and special ❀

I received some flowers from two of my friends which was so so lovely ❀ The first lot of flowers were from my friends Hannah and Anna and then the second set of flowers were from my friend Birunda πŸ™‚

From my family and my friend Barghavi I got some absolutely lovely beauty stuff including candles, bath bombs and a reed diffuser which I absolutely love because my current one has just run out and also I love reed diffusers because I don’t often burn candles because I only burn them when I’m at home in my room πŸ™‚

My mum got me a pot of Hot Chocolate from Fortnum and Masons when we went there for my birthday afternoon tea and then my friend Barghavi got me a lotus flower candle which is absolutely beautiful!!

When we went to Camden after the Fortnum Masons afternoon tea I picked up quite a few bits including a sorting hat print, a wooden stake for one of my plants and two sticker packs πŸ™‚ My mum also got me the second and third Bridgeton book so I’m excited to start reading them πŸ™‚

The final few things I got were a cupcake kit from my friend Barghavi, some tie dye shoes from my parents, a bag from Camden from my Mum, I also got a lovely purse to go with my Kate Spade bag that I got for Christmas and then finally a bracelet from my Mum and a necklace from my friend Barghavi πŸ™‚

I spoke to my mums friend Sandy a while ago about Terrariums and said that I would like one for my birthday so she went into her shed and fished out her terrarium and also bought me a set of tools so that I can make my own πŸ™‚ I’m so excited to get started and make it my own πŸ™‚

My brother Jamie got me some books including the Shadow and Bone series which I have already started and am so excited for and then my brother Billy got me a voucher for a Bake Off type experience which sounds so so cool!

Overall I had such an amazing birthday and want to thank everyone who made it special πŸ™‚

My 24th Birthday :)

My 24th Birthday :)

On Sunday 4th of July 2021 I turned 24 years old and I had such a nice time πŸ™‚ This will be the last year that I can say I am in my early twenties which definitely adds lots of pressure on me to get my life together as I head into my mid twenties! When I was younger I always thought that people in their early-mid twenties had everything together and were so grown up but now I’m at that point in my life and through talking to friends my age I can confirm that we’re all just making it up as we go along attempting to look like we know what we’re doing! Anyway quarter life crisis aside I had a lovely birthday weekend and I thought I would share on here what I got up to πŸ™‚ Thank you so much to all of my friends and family who made it so so special ❀ ❀

On the Saturday I went out for an afternoon tea to Fortnum and Masons with my Mum and my friend Barghavi which was so so lovely! The food was amazing and everyone there was so sweet πŸ™‚ I have wanted to go to afternoon tea at Fortnum and Masons for so long ever since my Mum went with her friend and bought back a slice of cake which we then ate that evening and it was one of the best slices of cake I have ever eaten so I was very very excited and it definitely lived up to my expectations πŸ™‚

After eating our body weight in cake, scones and sandwiches we headed to Camden which is one of my favourite places in London πŸ™‚ I love Camden because it has lots of different stalls and everytime I go I find a different stall that wasn’t there last time and that has amazing stuff that is right up my alley πŸ™‚

On the Sunday I spent the day chilling at home with my family and Barghavi which was so nice and needed after the busy day on the Saturday πŸ™‚ My Nan and Grandad popped round which was such a nice surprise because obviously with the pandemic I haven’t been able to see them as much as I would like so it made the day even more special being able to see them for some birthday cake πŸ™‚ My Aunt and Uncle also popped round and then later in the evening my brother Billy and his girlfriend came round for dinner and we ordered Wagamama πŸ™‚ I was also messaging friends throughout the day which was also so nice πŸ™‚

Overall I had an amazing birthday weekend and I can thank everyone who made it special enough πŸ™‚ The next post going up on this blog will be a What I Got For My Birthday so keep an eye out for that πŸ™‚

Let me know in the comments what you would do on your perfect birthday weekend celebration πŸ™‚

My life is changing and I’m going to keep you updated: Chapter 11 recap and Chapter 12 aims :)

My life is changing and I’m going to keep you updated: Chapter 11 recap and Chapter 12 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 11 of my Changing My Life series and am very excited to get started on my Chapter 12 aims πŸ™‚ Chapter 11 has been really focused on seeing friends and also going back to work full time for the first time since the end of March 2020!

Favourite quote of the month: You are the artist of your own life, don’t give the paintbrush to somebody else πŸ™‚

This month restrictions in the UK have started to lift even more with cinemas re-opening and also we are now allowed to have people inside our houses which has been amazing because the weather hasn’t been the best throughout the month of June either unfortunately 😦 I have seen a few of my friends this month which has been lovely although the main thing that has been taking up my time this month is the fact that I have gone back to work full time πŸ™‚ I have been trying to also complete my goals however I have been very busy but its been so cool πŸ™‚

  • Cook 1 new thing per week- The first thing I cooked this month was a Thai Yellow Meatball curry which was absolutely delicious! I love Thai curries but have never cooked one before so that was really cool and then the second one was a Beef Rogan josh which was pretty good but definitely not my favourite curry that I have made so far πŸ™‚ The next week I made some Sweet Chilli beef and then finally a Halloumi and Sweet Potato curry which was so tasty! I have made a curry every week this month I think so this week I made a Keema Style Beef and then a Chicken Thigh Chow Mein πŸ™‚ Finally in the last week of the month I made an oven baked Sweetcorn and Chorizo risotto, a chicken and plum stir fry and finally a chicken fried rice πŸ™‚
  • Continue working out regularly and re-start my yoga journey- I did do some yoga this month however I wasn’t able to be that productive in that respect so I want to try and make sure to try and pick it up even more next month πŸ™‚ I did do some workouts this month as well- I went for a run at the start of the month, did a few IFIT workouts and at the end of the month I went climbing twice with my brother which was so so much fun! πŸ™‚
  • Continue sorting out my bedroom, go through my make-up and GYSTing- One of the main things that I did with regards to sorting out my bedroom this month was I organised my bookshelves and moved some things around to give myself more space for my books πŸ™‚ I moved my theatre programmes from my book bookshelf over to my DVD bookshelf meaning that I had another shelf on my book bookshelf for all of the new books I have been buying recently πŸ™‚ I then went through my make-up and tried to get rid of anything that I knew I would no longer use or that has been in my collection for a long time so would be out of date πŸ™‚
  • See my friends, Skype Hannah and Anna and celebrate fathers day- Due to the fact that I went back to work this month I didn’t get to see my friends as much as I wanted to however I did manage to see a few of my friends which was amazing πŸ™‚ I skyped my two friends Hannah and Anna early in the month and we organised a trip to Windsor for the first weekend in August which I’m so excited for as I haven’t seen my friend Anna since January 2020 πŸ™‚ I also went out for lunch with my friend Barghavi, for an afternoon tea with my Mum and went for dinner with my friend Dorothy πŸ™‚ For Fathers Day we had a family meal which was so so nice- we ordered a take-away and just chilled at home πŸ™‚ I also have been looking after my Tomato plants who are getting really big and also got my first Covid 19 vaccination!! πŸ™‚
  • Complete the Cyprus chapter of my Nans travel diary :)- I actually haven’t had a chance to work on the Travel diaries this month as I have been so so busy with work.
  • Go back to work and get back into my work flow, continue watching work and training videos and take Maya to puppy class :)- I did in fact watch quite a few work and training videos this month which were all very interesting πŸ™‚ Mayas puppy class has now moved back into the hall which is really cool as it is now not weather dependent and she has been doing really well πŸ™‚ I also did some agility stuff with her in the garden which was so much fun and I have seen my Aunts puppies a few times this month as well πŸ™‚ I went back to work on the 11th of June and it has been so nice being back and using my skills again πŸ™‚
  • Reach 1700 followers on my blog and watch some photography videos- Although I didn’t reach 1700 followers on my blog this month I did reach 1674 which is just amazing!!! I’m so grateful to every single person who follows me on here and I can’t thank you all enough ❀ ❀ ❀

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 1 new thing per week
  • Continue working out regularly and re-start my yoga journey
  • Continue sorting out my bedroom, put away all of my birthday presents and cards
  • Celebrate mine and my mums birthday and see my friends πŸ™‚
  • Continue getting back into the flow at work, watching training and work videos and spending time with MyMy
  • Reach 1700 followers on my blog and try and watch a photography video πŸ™‚

Let me know in the comments if you have any ideas for goals for the next chapter πŸ™‚
