August Snippets

The snippets are back! After momentarily taking a break, (I didn’t film anything worthwhile last month, please forgive) I’m proud to say that my snippets videos are back and fully up to date!

As this months video is relaxed and chill, I thought I wouldn’t over explain it, and instead just let you enjoy it!

I hope you’ve all had a great month, and have an even better September!

What was your favourite memory from this past month? Let me know in the comments!

A-Z Of Me

Hey guys! I haven’t done a personal post like this for a while, so today I thought I’d share with you, the A-Z of me!

Animals | I have 4 cats, who you have met HERE and HERE, 2 Chinchillas, Ophelia and Belle, 2 Bunbuns, Hemingway and Jack, and a Guinea Pig, Trevor!

Bags | I absolutely love collecting bags. Especially those that are almost too small to be sensible.

Creative with manipulating letter to be other letters, for example, fairy lights | I’ve mentioned it before, but as a blogger I am contractually obliged to have fairy lights in my room, and covering at least 3 feet of space in other places.

Derren Brown | Have I ever mentioned that I’m something of a fan? Because I’m a fan. I’ve seen his stage shows Infamous and Miracle, and I can’t recommend seeing him live enough.

Elephants | I really love elephants, especially on jewellery, I’ve just always been drawn to jewellery with elephants on it, I couldn’t tell you why.

Family Guy | Family Guy and I have been together for years, I can’t imagine live without it.

GCABray | Myself and my pal GCABray are putting together a weekly podcast series for this month, live every Friday!

Hands | I’ve been really interested in and loved practising nail art designs for years.

I | could eat nothing but edamame, spring onion and salt for days.

Japan | As you guys already know, Japan has been my dream holiday destination for a long time now.

Killjoy | Sometimes I can’t think of enough facts about myself when doing posts like these.

London Town | I can’t call London anything other than London Town now, I wish I knew why. Great place though.

MJ | Again, I’m sure you guys know that I’m a Michael Jackson fan.

Nuggets | I love anything in a nugget form. Chicken nuggets, Golden Nuggets, my cats who are all tiny nuggets.

Oh my god how many dresses do you own?! | I own 24 dresses. Even I didn’t know it was that many!

Purple | My favourite hair colour to have is purple, but it fades to quickly for me to keep it long-term.

Qwerty | So many files on my computer are called QWERTY and QWERTYASDF because I can’t be bothered to label them correctly. I know, I despise myself.

Reciting | I can recite a 9 minute beat poem off by heart. But only in an Australian accent. (For those interested, it’s Tim Minchin’s Storm)

Same, girl | I know all of the words to Same Girl by R. Kelly and Usher

Tidy | I love tidying, I know, I’m one of those people. I like doing it, and I love seeing the results.

Untidy | When I’m stressed or sad though, the tidiness kinda disappears.

Vexed | I love practising and watching magic and illusions. One of my favourite quotes is, “You never understood why we did this. You really don’t know? It was… it was the look on their faces…”

Wager | I like proposing wagers a LOT, but I will always bet a pound.

Xylose | Too much sugar can give me intense headaches and migraines.

You call yourself a blogger?! | I have only very recently tried avocado (#bloggerconfessions) and I really liked it!

Zoolander | What is this? A school for ANTS?!

I hope you guys enjoyed this post. It was actually a lot of fun to put together, so I nominate anyone that wants to do this post, to do it! I couldn’t believe how difficult it was for me to find information that I haven’t already shared, oh the stress of sharing on the interwebs.

I’d love to get to know you guys more too, so leave 2 facts about yourself in the comments below!

April Snippets

GUYS WE DID IT! We’re at the end of another month, and once more, I’m giving you another snippets video!

This month officially saw the start of Spring, and therefore finally times for me to get back outside, and spending more time with the goats, Michael and Merlin.

I also had the ultimate pleasure of getting to see all of my best pals from school, as they all came home for Easter, so I had lots of fun days with them, and finally got to go back to Yo!Sushi with one of my ultimate queens, Issy (although you probably know her as Bella 😉 )

I also decided to carry on my spring cleaning theme from last month, and finally re-evaluate what I was keeping in my desk, and whether or not I actually needed it. Luckily I found these awesome ‘finger-lasers’, and realised that my priorities were entirely in order. (You can also see Sawyers blatant disregard and self-entitlement, as he jumps onto my bag of things to throw out.) ((I also thought that the truth behind the theme music for this month is funny for this clip, as I’m sure no one would’ve thought that while tidying, I was rapping Wiz Khalifa.))

And finally, through all of the University and blogging deadlines I’ve encountered recently, my room really showed my struggle at keeping on top of everything. Luckily for me, I’ve been practising magic since I was 8.

So here’s Aprils Snippets, I hope you guys enjoy it!

What did you get up to this month? Let me know the 2 best things that happened to you this past month in the comments!

10 Things That Make Me Happy

Who doesn’t love a big ol’ dose of happiness? I saw posts like this floating around on a couple of blog post idea lists, and I thought it sounded like fun, and a little way for you guys to get to know me better. So today I’m sharing 10 things that make me happy with you guys!

backgrounder

Big groups of people being brought together

I mean most people that know me well will be able to tell you just how hilarious this fact is. I really love seeing people being brought together by things, be it through events such as music festivals, going to see a theatre show, or joining in a holi-themed festival. My own brother can make me cry by saying the word “crowds” to me. So yeah, it’s kind of a huge flaw in my otherwise very harsh, unloving and cold mystique.

Upside down kittens

I mean, who isn’t brought to near-tears by a cat who has fallen asleep and rotated their head completely upside down? Just me? Well you guys are missing out, like forreal.

My Friends

This does sound really cheesy and cliche, but I swear it; I have the greatest, most supportive friends in the entire universe. They always seem to be right there when I need them, with the best advice and shoulders to cry on. I owe a lot to them all. Soppiness.

Chicken Nuggets

Obvious. Offer to buy me chicken nuggets and we’re kinda best pals for life.

Seeing the moon

I just seem to find seeing the moon wherever I am quite comforting. No matter how far from home I am, no matter what happens each day, the moon will always come back. Plus it’s really gorgeous, like seriously we should all appreciate it more.

Cute/fluffy socks

These are something I seem to how low key-collected over the past few years. They are just so cosy and lovely, and there are endless pretty and insanely cute designs, so you appreciate them on both a comfort, and aesthetic level too.

Rilakkuma (& Korilakkuma) (also Pusheen tho) ((and Gudetama omg))

Aren’t all of these guys just insanely adorable though? Look at Rilakkuma and tell me you don’t want to smile. LOOK AT HIM. I think I have a very soft spot in my heart for Korilakkuma because I pronounce it like Corinne-akkuma in my head, so we’re like soul mates or something. And Pusheen is a cat, so what’s not to love? (Gudetama is like my lazy spirit animal/egg)

Vintage cameras

I’ve recently discovered a deep love for not only owning vintage cameras, but learning how to properly use them, it must feed into my passion for photography and general composition of shots.

Big Band music

Perhaps feeding into my love for the general 1950’s and vintage style, I do love hearing a big band or orchestra performing live. In fact, I actually think it feeds into my weird thing with crowds and people being brought together, gotta be honest.

Deadpool

No wait, Ryan Reynolds. No it’s Deadpool. Ryan. Deadpool… Reynolds. Both, oh my dear god.


That’s it for my quick list of 10 things that make me happy, let me know in the comments some unique things that make you happy too!

‘Get To Know Me’ Tag

Hey guys, today I thought I’d do a fun q&a-style tag, so quite literally, you guys could get to know me better! So here we go!

My middle name is my great-grandmothers name, so I count that as a yes.

When was the last time you cried?

Today

Do you have kids?

I don’t.

If you were another person, would you be friends with yourself?

I’d like to think so, but if I’d still be like myself, we’d probably be too similar to stand one another.

Do you use sarcasm a lot?

Nooooooooooo, I would never use such a thing.

Would you ever bungee jump?

Hells yes I would!

What’s your favourite cereal?

Golden Nuggets.

What’s the first thing you notice about people?

Their face? I mean, it depends on whether or not you’re being introduced to them or you just see them on the street.

Scary movies for evenings with pals, happy endings for life and massages.

Windscreen cleaner, Roasts, Fresh cotton

I can find anything lavender-coloured worryingly fast.

Where we you born?

I was born in the South-West of the UK (Plymouth)

That was actually a surprisingly long tag! I hope you guys feel like you got to know me a little bit better, I certainly enjoyed answering these questions! I tag anyone who hasn’t done this tag yet to do it, so I’m expecting to see some of these floating around soon guys!

I want to get to know you guys better too, so let me know 2 facts about you in the comments!

Sweater Weather Tag

Fotor01011221215I’ve been nominated by the lovely Rebecca from Waves Of Thought to do the Sweater Weather tag, so today I’m sharing my answers with you guys!


Favourite Candle Scent?

My favourite year-round scent is definitely Fresh Linen, it can’t be beaten! But particularly for fall, I love cosy scents, ironically like Bath & Body Works’ ‘Sweater Weather’!

Coffee, Tea or Hot Chocolate?

I love all three, but for this time of year, hot chocolate all the way!

What’s the best fall memory that you have?

Everything. Every memory. Every year oh my word. From Christmas, to Fireworks night, Halloween and Thanksgiving. But if I had to pick just one I’d say my Halloween when I was 8, because that’s when I got Tabs and Ginge.

Which make-up trend do you prefer: dark lips or winged eyeliner?

Winged eyeliner all of the way. Though I do adore dark lips, I wear winged eyeliner with almost every makeup look I do.

Best Fragrance for fall?

I like fruity and floral fragrances all year long, so anything like Katy Perry’s Meow or Ari by Ariana Grande.

Favourite Thanksgiving food?

Honey. Roasted. Vegetables.

What is autumn weather like where you live?

Autumn weather where I live is mostly perfect, and quite picturesque really. Crispy orange leaves on the floor, bright mornings and beautiful sunsets. But I can’t hide the fact that it does rain, both heavily and annoyingly drizzly.

Most worn sweater?

I don’t really wear a lot of sweaters, but I do like wearing oversized ones for lounging about the house.

Football games or jumping in leaf piles?

Jumping in a pile of leaves, for sure!

Favourite type of pie?

I know this question is intended to be a fruity/autumnal pie, but all I can think of is chicken pie, so we’re going with that.

What song really gets you into the fall spirit?

Since Katy Perry’s Prism came out this time last year, I guess I really associate that album with this time of year especially. But I’m a sucker for Christmas music, I’ll probably start blasting that on Nov 1st…

Is pumpkin spice worth the hype?

This year is actually the first year I’ve experienced pumpkin spice, and I can safely say, yes it is. It takes a little getting used to, but it is perfect for fall.

I nominate:

Karen from Confetti & Curves

Egypt from A Girl Named Egypt

Jessica from Miss Influential


And that’s it! I hope you guys enjoyed this post, I certainly did because I’m obsessed with his time of year!
