A Letter To My Mum

Happy Mothers Day to my wonderful mum. First off mum, i want to say I'm sorry for all the heartache I've caused you over the years and thank you for just being there and supporting me during my dark times but i know you will say 'thats what mothers do' and yes that's true but again thank you from the bottom of my heart.

You single handedly raised twin girls, who clearly did your nut in from time to time and that's a credit to all single mothers! You took on the father role too. I hope you know that you are my greatest role model, my biggest inspiration, and most of all, my absolute best friend along with Nicole of course.

22 Reasons To Love James Paxton & Tyler Young

For today's post, I'm collaborating with a few Philkas (Philip and Lukas from Eyewitness who are a couple) fans Nealey, Lu and McKenna. Tyler Young and James Paxton are currently most known as being the stars of the incredibly iconic TV show, "Eyewitness". Though the show wasn't a smash hit (due to USA Network's terrible promotion), I could go on a rant about the lack of support they give the show, actors, everyone involved. So we're actively searching for a new home for our beloved Eyewitness since USA Network made the decision to not renew it for a season 2. 

Their Oscar-worthy performances earned them both a notably large fanbase. One way or another they made you cry with their emotional moments. We all know they're both the human embodiments of absolute sunshine, Basically, they are your next celebrity crush. Get ready to fall in love with them (if you haven’t already).

Things Disney Taught Me

 Growing up, watching Disney movies on repeat, we don't pay much attention to the lessons they teach us. Until you're in your teens or 20's and all the sudden it makes sense. 
The lessons that we can learn through Disney movies really are ones that we can take throughout our lives. They may seem silly at first as kids, watching the movies and hearing the songs, but when you really think about the meanings behind each story and song you’re bound to leave with at least one new moral. Watching Disney movies is so much fun as a young adult because we can catch the little puns that we didn't notice before and appreciating all the lessons along the way.

Things Life Has Taught Me & What I'm Still Learning

We're always learning something new as we go on this little journey called life. We're discovering new things about ourselves, what makes us tick, who we are as people. There are already a few things i've learnt, one way or another and some i'm learning.

As we grow up, we as people change, our ambitions change.

25 Reasons Why I'm Excited To See Beauty And The Beast

Ok, so what was your reaction when you first heard about a live action movie of Beauty and the Beast? Excitement? Tears of joy? I don't think there could have been a better casting, they totally sell the movie. I found myself watching the trailer of Beauty and the Beast repeatedly. the trailer alone makes me feel so excited to see it. Everything about the trailer swept us up into that beautiful world of magic, gorgeous imagery, and lessons in kindness and tolerance.  

It's been over 25 years since the release of the classic animated film, one people fell in love with. Oh the nostalgia. So i for one and my twin sister are looking forward to see this.

My Anxiety Playlist

There's certain times during the day where my anxiety becomes a little too much, and feel as if this world is caving in and I can’t escape from it. Listening to music does me wonders whether it's to cheer me up or calm me down.

This playlist is to let me know that everything will be okay, take deep breaths and stay calm. It’s full of songs and themes that I find really relaxing and can just close my eyes to. Sit back, relax and listen to my chilled, determined taste in music! Anxiety can make some days a struggle, but there’s always a better day ahead. I am a fighter and this playlist reminds me how strong i am, as someone living with a mental illness certain songs touch me and help me realise i weren’t alone.

Remembering Benson: One Year On

Today marks a year since Benson. my beautiful pug sadly passed away. 28th February was the day we brought him home back in 2014, we didn't know much about him including how old he was (we thought he is most likely 7 or older) so we decided that the day we bought him home would be his birthday. 

Benson was my little baby, he was a mummy's boy, he even had a jumper that proved it. A part of me disappeared with him that day, he was my best friend, my little therapist and my cuddle buddy. The couple of years we had him were special because he helped me with my mental health and in all honesty I've never felt so lost and lonely, he gave me something to look forward to, someone to wake up to, someone who counted on me. I'm sure other animal lovers will agree with me when i say losing a pet feels like losing your best friend, a big part of you has gone - that's what it felt like for me, it was like I'm by myself, people will leave me at some point but why did it have to be my fur baby?
