2 YEARS OF BLOGGING!

As of today, I've officially been blogging for 2 years which seems so strange to say! I feel like I've shared a fair amount but thought I would do a get to know me better post as it's a bit of fun! 

Favourite film?
 I can never seem to choose just one favourite but I'm pretty into mystery thriller type films - especially ones with a twist! For instance, I love things like Shutter Island and Inception, anything that keeps you guessing or has an ambiguous ending. I also enjoy a good comedy, one that springs to mind is Hot Fuzz as it also has that twist element. 
What is my Zodiac sign and do I agree with it?
Well, I was born on March 10th, making me a Pisces. I wouldn’t say I’m overly clued up about horoscopes and astrology, I do find it interesting though! In terms of me relating to the general description of a Pisces, there are some aspects that describe me well for sure. In particular, the creative, charismatic, intuitive and adaptable traits describe me pretty well. A…

BLOGMAS: THE PERFECT CHRISTMAS EVE

Christmas Eve is often a very busy day and begins with the chaos of getting all the final bits ready for Christmas. We usually collect and deliver presents to different family members and do some last minute shopping for any food or essentials.

My Mum then prepares some bits for Christmas Dinner and my evening usually kicks off with the annual trifle making. I’m not sure how many years I’ve been making one for me and my Dad but it’s at least 6+ so it’s become a tradition now!

The evening is (hopefully) a bit more chilled out and we usually watch a Christmas film. This year’s pick is The Muppet's Christmas Carol! One of my favourite traditions is getting a few gifts to open on Christmas Eve. Most often, this consists of some new festive pyjamas which we usually put on straight away and have them for Christmas morning. I’ve had multiple designs over the years and this time I received this matching grey fairisle set which I really love! Luckily it’s not too thick as I hate getting too hot but it’s also pretty cosy too.

We also like to have a hot chocolate whilst watching the film and this year we're having one made from an orange Lindt chocolate bar, melting this with milk makes an amazing hot chocolate and is the perfect drink for Christmas Eve!

We also sometimes receive another small gift to open, sometimes slippers or socks, last year I got a Christmas Mug and quiz book. This year, we all got another book each and as I’m not a massive read of fiction, I actually got this Sherlock Holmes puzzle book. It looks really interesting as you have to try and put on your best Sherlock head in order to solve different puzzles and problems, it’s definitely something fun you can do by yourself or with the whole family!

I can’t quite believe that it’s Christmas Day tomorrow, every year I remark on how quickly it comes around but it just seems to fly by. I still have a few festive posts to put up, including a What I Got For Christmas! I hope everyone has a lovely day, whatever it is you celebrate!

30 SHOWS TO WATCH ON NETFLIX

As an avid user of Netflix, I am more than aware of the time spent trying to find something rather than actually watching anything. I've gone through many different series on there so I thought I'd share some here! I know there is quite a few I've missed off that people would put at the top of their list and I need to get round to watching them for sure!
Breaking Bad  I'm sure most people will have watched this already but if not, now is the time. I put it off for way too long but it lived up to my expectations. Prison Break  This series is tense and will make you gasp at how Michael Schofield's brain works, I'm also really glad that a Season 6 has been confirmed. Pretty Little Liars  One of my favourite series of all time, the perfect combination of high school drama and a thrilling mystery. Gossip Girl  Another classic teen drama that follows Manhatten's elite students and their various scandals through an anonymous gossip site.  Riverdale  Based on the Archie Co…

THE AUTUMN TAG

I haven't done a tag in quite a while and always find them great fun, so I was pleased when I saw that Michael had tagged me in The Autumn Tag! Essentially this tag is a set of questions all about, you guessed it - Autumn! Definitely go and check out Michael's post here as he had some great answers, thanks again for tagging me! 
What signifies the start of Autumn for you?
Once it gets chillier out, the evenings get darker earlier and the leaves start changing. Also by October 1st I always feel ready for Autumn.
What is your favourite Autumn scent?
I love things like cinnamon, cedarwood, black pepper - anything spicy, woody or earthy really.
What is your favourite Autumn colour?
Burgundy is one of my favourite colours this time of the year, a lot of my outfits tend to include something burgundy around Autumn. I also love all the colours the leaves turn too, it looks so pretty!                                                Are you a fan of a Pumpkin Spice Latte?
This may come as a…

JANUARY MONTHLY FAVOURITES

Well, once again January has lasted twice as long as every other month does (seriously though, why does it always feel like that?) Anyway, I thought I'd share the things I've enjoyed during the start of 2019. 
Creativity 
After receiving a new camera for Christmas, I've enjoyed taking photos whenever I can. I definitely need to get out and about to test it properly but it's been great just experimenting! I'm really hoping that we get some good snow because I'd love to get some great photos of that, I always think it looks so pretty! However, if all else fails, you can always count on a good sunset for a perfect photo opportunity. 
Food
I feel like I have to mention all leftover snacks from Christmas firstly as it's always a good day when you remember you've got a whole chocolate orange to eat still. I also am a big fan of fudge in general and hadn't had any for ages so was pleased when my mum picked up some of the Rydale Farm Gold Collection all butt…
