Monthly favourites | November 2014

Hello

I cant believe tomorrow is December! Only one month left and 2015 will be here so I'm going to try and make my last two monthly favourite's of the year as good as possible.

Make up;
As some of you know, I don't wear loads of make up but I have been loving the "Collection work the collection eyebrow kit". I have naturally quite bushy eyebrow's but I do always make sure they're thinner but I like to add more definition to them. I don't go mad but I like to make a slight arch and just define them in places. I use the real techniques brush which is called eyebrow, I think. This i such a good little kit which cost £3.99. I got mine from Superdrug and it has three shades, you get a light brown, dark brown and a beige type colour. I use the light brown as that's nearest to my natural colour. 
Collection Work The Colour Eyebrow Kit
Lush product;
I used the Lord of misrule bath ballistic about a week ago, this is one of my favourites from lush. They got it back this Christmas but its not in any of their stores or online, which is annoying because I wanted to get this again. It smells incredible and turns the bath purple.



Film;
Hot fuzz has been my favourite this month. Its my favourite film anyway but I have watched it over 20 this month, its a bit excessive but I think its just so funny and its part of the cornetto trilogy. For those of you who aren't family with the films. Simon pegg and Nick Frost star in three films that form this trilogy, in Shaun of the dead they had a strawberry cornetto, Hot fuzz was original and Worlds end was mint. These films are brilliant comedy films, they are a bit horror as well but not that much its funny more than anything. 



Food;
Milky way crispy rolls. They are like a milk cream which is solid in the middle, covered in wafer and coated in chocolate and they taste amazing. I think they are branded for children but I see nothing wrong with me loving these.




TV series;
I'm a celebrity.....Get me out of here. I guarantee most people who live in Britain are watching this. I feel its become part of England's Christmas tradition if you will, everyone knows that near the end of November I'm a celebrity starts again and it is by far the most entertaining three weeks of the year for me. For people who may not know what this show is, basically ten celebrity's are put in the Australian jungle and have to complete horrible but funny tasks in order to win meals. They do get fed rice and beans but one celebrity will compete for food. One of my favourite trials is definitely the eating trial, this is basically celebrity's eating horrible bugs, and the downstairs regions of animals. It the sort of thing you watch through your hands.



Book;
I was in the mood for a romance book, so I went and got "The year I met you" by Cecilia ahern. This book is incredible, I'm not going to give anything away but I will give you this first part of the blurb which had me hooked before even opening the book, "You have never acknowledged my existence, no I yours. But you are a circus act all of your own and I cannot hep but be your audience".

Youtubers;
Based on the fact that I watch a lot of YouTubers  I'm allowing myself to chose 2.

Song;
Everyone in England has seen the John Lewis advert by now and the song for that advert is amazing, Its called real love and was originally by the Beatles but Tom Odell did a brilliant version of the advert.

Clothing;
My bear onesie has been like a blanket for me recently, its so fluffy and has a hood. Its is a little tight on me but that's because I was going to get the one from the inspire range in new look but they didn't have the colour I waned. I got a large from the women's section in new look. Its only a little tight round the tummy area but its still very comfortable to wear.

Random;
Black Friday sale!!!! I have seen so many bargain in this sale this year and I cant wait for next years as more shops in England are getting involved in the event/sale.

Thanks for reading.

Blog make over | From Envye

Hello
So some of you may notice that my blog looks very different and probably better. I have wanted to get a blog template from Envye/ Wonderforest for ages now but I always got confused because it was in dollars (Please don't judge me for that haha.), but in the black Friday sale it was down to $25 which for me works out about £15. I think the usual price of $50 is totally worth it but the fact it was in a sale made me finally get the template I love.

I have now got the Summer of '69 [v.2] Blogger Template which I am in love with. They had two versions of this that looked slightly different, I went for this one because I preferred the layout. As you can all see, this is what my blog now looks like and I think it looks so much better than my old layout. I want to work hard on this blog to make it exactly how I want it and thanks to Envye I finally have my perfect space online to blog from.




Thanks for reading and I hope you like my new design as much as I do.
Bye for now xxx

Blogmas?

Hello

I had been thinking about something like blogmas for a while and then I read Lou's blog about her doing blogmas I'll leave link in her name. Basically I will be blogging everyday in December up until the 25th although I might just do it for the whole of December, we'll see how it goes. Hardly anyone reads my blog but I still want to do it as I think it will be fun.

I'm going to try and do various post like book reviews, DVD reviews, monthly favourites and Christmas guides. It might not be the most interesting thing to read but I'll try and mix it up a little so there's something for everyone. I'm also starting my diet on Monday so Ill chat a little about what I've been up to diet and exercise way. I'm joining in Sprinkleofglitter's #Glittergetsfitter so lets see if I can loose a few pounds before my holiday.

Meeting Zoe Sugg (Zoella) | 26th November 2014

Hello

I'm back today with a much happier post, as you may have seen from my McBusted post, the signing wasn't the best but enough about that because the signing for girl online was fantastic, so lets get started shall we...

The event was held at the Waterstones in Bluewater shopping centre and I have to mention how well organised the event was, it was ticketed but you only paid the price of the book which is £12.99 (I know its cheaper in some places but that's the retail price and you got to meet Zoe so I would happily pay that again to meet her.). I went with my cousin, her friend and her friends mum, she drove us to Bluewater and the girls needed an adult with them so I had someone else to chat to. Oh and these are the same people I went to Alfie's signing with but we didn't get to meet him.

We got there at about 4:15pm and joined the queue which was quite long but the signing didn't start until 5pm, so there was plenty of time. The man came round to scan our tickets and give us our wristbands (I would have kept it but the man said no.......I was a little bit gutted, haha. Also the wristband actually fit, I was surprised because I have quite chubby wrist.) and then we got our books which looked amazing. It sounds stupid but I felt really proud, I contained my excitement though because people might of thought I was a little bit weird. I felt proud simply on the basis that I started reading Zoe's blog way back in 2009! The fact that I've seen her blog an her YouTube channel turn into this just shows you, as long as you put in the effort and follow your dreams and aspirations, you can achieve something pretty special. You're all probably thinking "Just shut up with that sentimental rubbish and carry on", so I'll just insert a picture of the book here instead.



I will admit that I was concerned about the whereabouts of the poster that was included in my ticket, what can I say, I like a good bargain and I like to get what's included in the price so I was nervous where my poster was, don't worry (Not that you are.) I got it after meeting Zoe. At 5 the queue started moving along, as did we with my cousin counting down the shops until we finally got to meet Zoe. Seeing several girls walk past me in floods of tears made me fear that I would be overwhelmed with emotion and cry like a baby, luckily I didn't as I would have looked a bit silly as I'm 17, also I was crying with happiness on the inside so I didn't want to share that.

 How snazzy does this poster look??
Its just so pretty!

At about 6ish we got to go down to meet her, all the people were taken down in groups of 10. Luckily I was taken down with the people I was with as I wouldn't have got a photo otherwise, and also I was pretty paranoid about loosing my cousin, so I was nice I knew I hadn't lost her. In the signing room it was so calm, a bit of chit chat between the people queueing. There was no screaming teenage girls (Well not when I was in there.), it was calm and really well organised. The women did tell me that all phones had to be put away, I was a little heartbroken as I wanted to get a selfie with Zoe but because my cousin in under 14, she had her responsible adult which wasn't me. That meant I could have my unattractive chubby face in a picture with Zoe and I actually like the picture. I'm not going to put a picture up simply because then if anyone who knows me sees this blog, they'll know its me and for now this is just my little space online.

It was my turn to meet Zoe and I thought I would freeze and not say a word, not the case as it happens. Zoe said hello and so did I and then I had a little conversation with her about the book, I told her how much I loved her and that I'd been reading her blog since 2009 and she said and I quote "Really, wow for that long, thank you so much". I then asked her if I could have my picture taken with her and she said yes. Even though I only chatted to her for about 20 seconds It was lovely, I told her all I needed to, I told her how much I loved and admired her work, her and congratulated her on her book. Zoe will never read this but I want to thank her for how genuinely lovely she was and actually seemed interested in everyone and was chatting to them. Also thank you Zoe because my cousin has not stopped chatting about it, she loves you and the fact that you said you loved her hair band made her day. You make so many people happy with your videos, writing and just being you.

I can't wait to start reading Girl Online and review it.


Oh and a little side note which is completely unrelated. After meeting Zoe I popped into Paperchase and Ohhhhhhh my god it was like heaven, well if your a stationery lover. They also had the mason style drinking jar which was £5, I was over the moon I mean I'd been looking for one with a straw for ages.

Thanks for reading.

Meeting McBusted |

Hello

So as some of you know, I went to meet McBusted at their signing in Kingston yesterday. I had never been to a signing before and was quite excited but even though I enjoyed meeting them, it was quite rushed when I met them and the only ones who really spoke to me were Harry and Dougie. They both asked how I was and how long I'd waited and said thanks for coming. Matt didn't say anything to me, Tom said hi, Danny said hi and James didn't say a word. 

I was happy I met McFly because I've waited to meet them for 10 years and this was my chance, I like McBusted because I know that they're all really excited to be combining the two bands which is brilliant but my main aim of the day was to actually talk to all of them. I know it was busy at the signing and I appreciate that they had others to see but I was just gutted that even when I said hello to all of them and asked how they were, I was ignored by Matt and James. 

I waited for two and a half hours to see them, I was one of the first to meet them and the minute I got in the shop, my camera and iPhone died! All I wanted was to take a picture with Harry, Dougie, Tom and Danny, the people who have create the music of my childhood and who put a smile on my face without knowing I exist, to them I'm just another face in a crowd of thousands but to me they have been my inspiration for years.. I'm not trying to moan, I had an idea of what to expect from signings, I guess I was just disappointed that I was ignored by Matt and  James, I was so happy that all of McFly acknowledged my existence and said hi, well Harry and Dougie were chatting to me so I was really overwhelmed by that and that made the situation better. I know that Matt and James were probably just trying to make sure that everyone got to meet them and from what I've seen on twitter other people did get to chat to them, maybe they thought they'd already said hi and wanted to move on to the next person.

Lets just say that when Louise from Sprinkleofglitter said she didn't like the signings because you don't get to chat and its just a constant stream of people, I wasn't convinced because I hadn't been to a signing but even though I loved the idea of her show Louise live, I still thought that a signing sounded great. Everything should be done the way Louise has done it, its much better you can ask questions and it just seems nicer. 

Of course I know that they will never read this but thank you Harry, Dougie, Tom and Danny for speaking to me and saying hello. Its been a dream of mine to meet you all since I was 6, I'm now 17 and I'm happy I've had the experience. Thanks to Matt and James for signing my CD.  It was amazing that I was just inches away from McFly/McBusted and may I say that Tom, Harry, Danny and Dougie are just as lovely as I thought and I loved the fact that Harry and Dougie actually seemed interested in my boring conversation.

I almost forgot to mention that I went to get a drink and I was in the queue right behind their tour manager Tommy and I was even a little bit starstruck by that haha.

Thanks for reading.

Cake pop fail

Hello,
Last week I attempted to make cake pops, it didn't go to well for two reasons.
Reason 1; Half of the pops were very misshaped.
Reason 2; When I put melted chocolate on them they kept slipping down the stick.
I did managed to make about 4 good ones so I'm just going to show you how I made them and then maybe you can all try them and show me how yours turned out.

So for this recipe you will need;
120g butter.
120g caster sugar.
2 eggs.
120g plain flour.
1/2tsp baking powder.
Vanilla extract

For the icing you will need about 300g chocolate, you can use candy melts but there expensive and I wasn't going to buy them, sorry.

Step 1
Get all your ingredients ready and weighed out.


Step 2;
Grease your cake pop mould so when you get them out later they dont stick to the mould.


Step 3;
Put all of your ingredients into a bowl and mix well until there's a smooth batter.





Step 4;
Equally divided the mixture into your cake pop mould and then put in a 180c over for about 12 minutes. When they are ready just take them out and leave on a cooling rack.




Step 5;
For the decoration I used melted chocolate and crushed up oreos. Melt the chocolate over a pan of simmering hot water and wait to melt. Take you cake pop and dip the stick into the chocolate, then push the stick into the cake and roll in the chocolate and crushed oreo's.





Now I don't think these looked that great to be honest, Also the cake kept on sliding down the stick so I ended up with about 4 averagely good cake pops but try out the recipe and let me know how you got on.

Mcbusted Tour 2015 | I got tickets!!!

Hello

So earlier this year I wrote a post about how I wished I was at Mcbusted so when they announced they would be going on tour next year, I had a long hard think (About 5 seconds.) about whether or not I should get tickets. When Mcbusted was formed, I was a little gutted just because of my love for McFly but after seeing them on this amazing journey this year and how much everyone loves them, I've grown to fangirl over McBusted just as much as I do with McFly.  

I'm going to see the tour at the O2 arena with my mum next year, I know what your thinking which is "Why would you go to a concert with your mum?" and my answer to that is simply because my mum is awesome and I want her to see how much I love the concert environment. I think my family think that because I'm quiet at home I will be like that at a concert, I'm far from quiet when in the presence of McFly or McBusted and my mum is so excited to be going. 

My plan for the tour is to go into London early, have some lunch and possibly go to the matinee of Les mis. Why not? I can see two Fletcher's in one day. I wont lie, even though I'm really happy with the seats I got, I would have loved seats in B1 simply on the basis that that's the side that's Toms side of the stage and I do love Tom Fletcher.

Anyway if anyone is going to the tour, whatever venue please let me know in the comments and we can fangirl together.

Anxiety attack

Hello

I didn't really know how to approach this post, I think I've always had anxiety but only sightly, in the sense that I get very nervous about new things and over thinking situations which makes me not want to try new things because I've always feared an anxiety attack. 

Last week I had an anxiety attack and I wasn't sure whether or not to tell anyone, I didn't want to tell my family because they will probably just think I'm over reacting but it was so scary. I don't know why I had one, I think it was because everything was getting on top of me, work was hectic, and everyone around me seemed to be having there own little crisis. I was in the kitchen when it happened, I could feel myself going into like a panic mode. I just went into my room and shut the door. My chest felt so tight and it felt like I was about to burst into tears, I couldn't breath and I was panicking even more about that as well. I managed to calm myself down by just shutting everything off. Now that will sound odd but I put on my music closed my eyes and just pictured the sea. 

That probably sounds ridiculous but it managed to calm me down and gave me time to get my breath and think about what just happened really. I suppose even though I hated it happening, I'm glad it did while I was alone and it gave me time to work out how to calm myself down, at least now I'm prepared for if it happens again.

I'm sorry if this was a boring post but I wanted to talk about it because I wasn't really sure what else to do, I mean Ive felt anxious before but never had an anxiety attack where I have felt like that.

My approach to writing my blog

Hello

I wanted to talk about how I plan my blog post and how I go about writing them. Basically I like to get lots of posts written and ready to be posted. This may sound lazy but I will have a surge of ideas rush into my brain and I will go into blogger and write out all the titles, so then they will be in my drafts for post that I know I want to write.

For example, when I started this blog back in April my drafts were full of over 50 posts. I still do this now, as only yesterday I had a brain wave and out came 43 new ideas that I wanted to write about. I think for me this works perfectly, simply on the basis that I can go for weeks when my brain just doesn't really function in a productive way, that's why when I go into my drafts I can scroll through and see what I'm in the mood to write. Either later on today and tomorrow I've got a post that I want to upload simply because its something that was discussed at depth in my house last night and I feel like I need to vent about it.

Daily blog plan;
I try to wake up at 7am which never normally happens but I normally manage to drag myself from my bed at about 8am. I'll have some breakfast, watch a bit of Jeremy kyle and get ready. I start writing at pm and aim to keep writing until 6pm, in between that I do have lunch and dinner so I normally write for about 5 hours. I don't just write my blog posts, as childish as it sounds I have been writing parts of a book that I really want to write well and make it something I would love to read. I sometimes carry on writing if I'm really engrossed in a post but normally I like to treat myself for my averagely hard work writing but watching the SacconeJoly video at 6pm.

I have a lot of post planned which involve baking, film reviews, album reviews and things that I'm excited about for next year. I'm really sorry this post was short but I like to save my big posts for Sundays. I would really love to know what you would like to see me write about so leave a comment below and I'll do my best to make an acceptable blog post about it,

Lush christmas range

 Hello

The Lush Christmas range came out on the 3rd of October and I did go a little bid overboard all though you all know how I do like a bit of Lush. I didn't get everything they had but I just wanted a few of my favourite Christmas products as you can only get them at this time of year. I also just wanted to say that I'm not trying to show off, I just wanted to show you some of the bits Lush have in and to share my opinions of them so you can get an idea of what the products are like. I watch Zoe's (Zoella) Lush haul every year to see her opinions of the products and then like to see for myself if I like them.

Candy mountain | £2.75


Candy mountain was one I didn't try last year so I really wanted to try it this year. This is a bubble bar so you just crumble this under the water. This smells like the snow fairy shower gel, which smells like bubblegum bottles so it is quite sweet but it is a lovely scent and personally one of my favourites. This has a slight shimmer to it and just looks really cute.

 Butter bear | £1.95


This butter bear is really cute and is just the butterball but in bear shape, it smells a little like cocoa butter which is quite nice. This isn't the typical lush product that had tonnes of colours and scents but it does release oils into the bath which make your skin feel amazing and its also quite moisturising.

Father Christmas | £3.50


I think they did this one last year but they have changed the scent so it now smells like snow fairy. I like this one just because it is so Christmassy. this is one of the larger bath bombs so I will break this into about 4 (I need to save money now so that mean no more big lush spends, I must make these products last) so it will last me a few baths.

 The Christmas hedgehog | £3.25


I got this one mainly for the look of it, this bubble bar is the shape of a little hedgehog and is quite shimmery. I personally don't love the smell, the only way I can describe it would be to say it smells to me a bit like play dough, I cant pin point an actual scent but it just smells a little bit like that and I'm not a great love of scents like that.

Golden wonder | £3.70


I got this one last year and loved it, this bath bomb is white with a gold dusting around it to give it a gold appearance. Its smells quite orangey with a little bit of lime. Not only does this turn the bath a really cool aqua bluey green, but it also has tiny bath bombs inside so when you shake it, it actually sounds like there's a gift inside like a real present.

Dashing Santa | £2.95


Dashing Santa is quite cute and colourful. Its got a subtle smell of orange which is nice and by the looks of it, it would turn the bath a nice orange colour. Its quite a good size for the price of it, as some of the lush products I have got before have been really expensive but have been tiny.

Luxury Lush pud | £3.50


This is one of my favourites from the Christmas range, I got this one last year but it was lilac instead of bright pink. I really love this because it has little pockets of colour which make the bath look amazing. On the top there is a little bit holly on the top which looks quite cute. This smells exactly like a Christmas pudding, and is essentially Christmas in a bath bomb. 

Yog Nog soap | 100g £3.40


This soap smells incredible, I wasn't going to get it because I don't like to buy different soaps because my skin feels dry with some brands. The smell of this is wonderful and smells like honeycomb. Well when I say that I mean it smells like the taste of crunchie ice cream. That's probably not helpful to you but honeycomb it the closest smells I can relate it to, well that or butterscotch. I got 200grams of this soap because I loved the smell. The thing that disappointed me about this was that the women in the shop had told me that it doesn't make your skin feel dry and I was quite annoyed that it made my hands feels really dry. I use it on the rest of my body but I can't use this on my hands because they feel a bit raspy if that makes sense. 

Snow Fairy shower gel | £11.95


This was really expensive but they do have this in smaller sizes. I got the biggest one because I love this scent. Snow fairy is one or Lush's most popular scents and it lucky I got it because we went back late that day and they had sold out. This has a little bit of sparkle to it and make really nice bubbles in the bath. I will be using this after Christmas and hopefully I can make it last.

Star light, Star bright | £3.50


Lush did this bath melt last year and I really wanted to try it this year. This is a lovely bath melt but does cover you in glitter. It smells to me a little like ginger which is actually quite nice. On the lush website it says that when it's in the bath it makes the water a blue colour which sounds like it will be really pretty and smell really nice and relaxing.

Lord of misrule| £?


I looked on the lush website and its not on there now, I'm not sure why but maybe they have stopped doing it. Anyway if they have it in a lush shop near you then it will probably be around £3-£4. It smells really lovely and a little bit spicy to me. I really hope they start selling these again because these are my favourite product at Christmas. 

Holly go lighty | £4.50


This bath melt looked really cool in the shop and has a bit of silver glitter on the top. It smells like the bubble bar they did last year which was called hot toddy. This smells like cinnamon sticks which is really lovely and I cant wait to use this in my bath.

Cinders | £2.50


I had to get a few of these because they are incredible. The cinders bath bombs are quite small but they smell like cinnamon and really lovely spices. They also have popping candy in them which makes the bath sound like a crackling fire place. I really wish that they did these in larger sizes because even though they are perfect as they are, they would be incredible if they were just slightly bigger.

I'm going to starts putting What songs of song I listed to to write my blog post (weird, oh well I have to listed to music to write and I wanted to share with you what I listen to while I write different posts_.

The fault in our stars movie | Review

 Hello
I have been patiently waiting for months to get my hands on the fault in our stars DVD and its safe to say I was eager to get it on its release date. I virtually ran down to Sainsbury's in the morning, they were only just putting the DVDs's out on display so I was so happy they hadn't sold out in the 10 minuted they had been open.

I was worried that some of the book would be lost in the filming process, like in Harry Potter, as brilliant as the films are bits from the book the I love didn't make the cut when it came to filming. I was so happy when I watched this because they stayed true to the book and it the characters were portrayed amazingly. I spent the entire film either with a massive smile on my face or in floods of tears, everything single part of the book that I cried at was in there and it didn't loose its emotion because I was balling my eyes out like a baby. 

I don't think I can even pick a favourite part simply because I loved it all. One part that I simply adored was where Hazel calls Gus when she's in her garden, she can hardly get her word sand and when he asks if she's okay she says no and then the scene plays out with the pair on them on the swing set, I love this part of the film because of what she says. I think for me in the book the most hard hitting part was when Hazel says how she's a grenade and she wants to limit the people she hurts when she dies. I cried solidly for about 5 minutes after this scene, I was worried that the emotion in the book wouldn't be portrayed or acted out well in the film but the fact that they stuck entirely to the book and didn't change much made the film so much more enjoyable.

I think the casting for this film was perfect, I loved seeing the characters I had grown attached to in the book brought to the screen with such passion, you can tell by their performance that they understand the importance of showing the emotion of the book. One thing I will say is that I didn't picture Isaac as he was in the film, my expectation were blown away as Nat Wolff who plays Isaac is quite cute and I guess I didn't picture Isaac like that but don't get me wrong, I really liked him and all the other characters and I'm so pleased that this lived up to the book. 

The fault in our stars is now one of my favourite films and I will be watching this many times again, although I will have some tissues ready as I cried alto and my Hogwarts jumper was drowning in tears so I definitely need to stock up.


Let me know if you've seen the film yet and let me know what your favourite parts were.

Films

Hello,
Now that Halloween is over, it almost time for Christmas! And for me that means being in my pyjamas by about 4pm, getting snuggled into bed and watching a good film. With that in mind I thought I would chat about my favourite films, so grab a cup of tea and settle down for an averagely long post.


I simply cant chose a definite favourite of the Harry Potter films, now I only saw the Harry Potter films for the first time this year, that's not because I didn't want to watch them, but when I was younger I wasn't allowed to watch Harry potter because my parents didn't like the fact it was about witchcraft and wizardry (Long story there, might do a post about it at some point), I've always wanted to watch and read Harry potter so I decided it was time for me to finally view them. After watching the first film I was hooked and had to watch the remaining 7. I now love the films and the books and I don't think I could pick a favourite, but just because you see (In my opinion) the characters growing up and seeing more of how they deal with everything that happens, I will say that Order of the phoenix is my favourite, but I think we can all agree that in deathly hallows where you see snape's memories, it finally gives you the purpose of the character.



The cornetto trilogy which includes Shaun of the dead, Hot fuzz and worlds end are brilliant films and I could watch these over and over and not get bored. I love any film that Simon pegg and Nick frost are in because they work so well together and produce brilliant characters. Now out of the 3 films my all time favourite is Hot fuzz because I love the whole story that this small little town is run by murderous old people (Spoiler alert).



The Grinch who stole Christmas with Jim Carey has to be one of the best Christmas films of all time. I've loved this since I was little and have watched in every Christmas for as long as I can remember. In the topic of Christmas films I also love the Muppet's Christmas carol, I just love the whole film and basically anything with the Muppet's in, I will love to watch.



Sweeney Todd with Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter is incredibly gory but great for music. I actually like gory films and Sweeney Todd is defiantly one of my favourites. To be honest I love all films that have Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter in them because they both work amazingly well together and put everything they have into the characters.



Scream 1, 2, 3 and 4 are great horror films, although I know in the first film you had to establish the sorry line but did it need to be spread across 4 films, I'm sure that it could have been over in at most 3 films. Saying that I still really enjoy watching them all, you know it kills a few hours, if you'll pardon the pun.



Anything Disney is definitely in my favourite films, whether its my child like mind or the catchy songs, I love anything Disney and I'm not even ashamed to say it. I'll tell you a secret shall I, I still cry when Sully has to say goodbye to Boo in monsters inc and I cried when at the end of toy story 3 Andy says goodbye to the toys and when they are about the be burned at the rubbish tip. I know its pathetic but what can I say, Disney make some fantastic stories.



So I hope you all enjoyed my ramblings there, what are your favourite films? Leave a comment below x

Bye for now xxx
