Calling all Swifties – this a post for you. Whethere you’re a old fan or a newbie (like me) we all need to gather together and get excited because Taylor Swift’s ‘Lover’ album is here and I can’t get enough of it.

Since the album is completely relatable, I thought I would share some of my favourite lyrics from the album so that we can all use them to express how we are feeling from now on…

“I hate accidents, except when we went from friends to this” – Paper Rings

“I’m so sick of running as fast as I can. Wondering if I’d get there quicker if I was a man” – The Man

“Maybe you ran with the wolves and refused to settle down” – Daylight

“I lived like an island, punished you with silence” – Afterglow

“Swear to be overdramatic and true to my lover” – Lover

“I don’t wanna keep secrets just to keep you” – Cruel Summer

“Lived in the shade you were throwing. ‘Til all of my sunshine was gone, gone, gone” – I Forgot That You Existed

Reasons To Fall In Love With Autumn

For as long as I can remember, Autumn has been my absolute favourite season. The colors, the holidays, the changes – it’s all so magical to me.

Just like most people, I don’t look at life and be grateful for the small things. So, that is why I’m writing this post. It’s nearly Autumn and people get down about the warmer weather going so how about we all try to look at the good things about Autumn..

Orange and mustard colours are everywhere

I absolutely love the colours orange and mustard yellow. They are beautiful and warm. By filling your home with those colours, it gives off a warm and welcoming vibe. By dressing in oranges and mustards, you will look warmer and it will bring a little more colour to your face.

You can cosy up by the fire

Fireplaces are absolutely beautiful to me. You can get them in all different shapes and styles so you can fit it to match your home perfectly. There is nothing more exciting to me than grabbing a comfy chair or beanbag and sitting in front of the fire in the evenings. You could even bring a good book along.

School supplies fill store shelves

It’s been a while since I was in school, but that doesn’t stop me from loving stationery. I love notebooks, pencils, pens and novelty erasers. I love anything that I can be creative with. That is why, even though school is way in my past, I get so excited about a new school year.

Pumpkin spice smells in the air

You know that Autumn has well and truly hit once you start smelling those lovely pumpkin spice smells. The smells fill the air and pumpkin spice lattes come out. Autumn is filled with distinguishing scents and they fill my nose with happiness. 

Leaves crackling underfoot

If you love Autumn, you probably get excited by the sound of leaves crackling under your feet when you walk down the street. It’s literally one my favourite sounds ever. It’s funny because I’ve actually started to seek out the leaves. I will purposely walk where the leaves are crispier. Walking through leaves is one of the best Autumn activities there is.

I always knew that I loved Autumn but I didn’t know that I was such a huge fan until I started writing this post. Is Autumn your favourite season? What do you love most about Autumn?

My Top 5 Character Meets At Disneyland Paris

I’ve been to Disneyland Paris twice now and have a third trip booked. I know that’s not a huge amount but I’m grateful that I get to go at all.

In the future, Simon and I hope to get APs which means we will be going all the time but money doesn’t want that to happen right now.

In the meantime, while I’m missing the Disney magic, I thought I would write all about my favourite character meets in the parks.

Miss Bunny and Thumper

This is my all time favourite meet so I thought that I would talk about it first. It’s a funny story really. We were in the queue for the characters and something happened that made us leave the queue. We ended up all sad that we didn’t meet Miss Bunny and Thumper. So, we did some shopping. I bought a handbag with Mickey Mouse’s face on.

Anyway, we went back into the park and noticed that Miss Bunny and Thumper will be back at 1pm. We waited around for about an hour to meet them but it was totally worth it. Miss Bunny ended up loving my new bag and she posed with it. Thumper was upset that it wasn’t him that was on my bag!

Definitely the best character meet so far. Plus, Miss Bunny looks adorable with my handbag!

Marie

This was a character meet that I didn’t love so much as it was happening but thinking about it now, it made my trip extra special. We didn’t have to queue very long to meet Marie which shocked me as I figured that people would love to meet Marie.

At the time, I thought that Marie was freaky as she just clawed at me and stroked my hand but thinking about it now, it was super fun and funny.

Jafar

The line to meet Jafar was the best queue ever. I was hyped and super excited so I kept making jokes.

“First we were JaFAR, then we were JaNEAR”

I realise that isn’t actually that funny but I was so happy that I would laugh at anything.

When we got to Jafar, I asked him if he was the hugging type. He shook his head at me and it was one of the best moments ever.

Daisy Duck

This was the first meet of the second trip. As soon as we arrived in the park, I noticed Daisy and ran over.

Me and Daisy posed a lot and took plenty of photos. Even though I was extra fat (I’ve lost weight since), these photos are some of my favourite of myself. Not because of how I look but because of how happy I am.

Goofy

This was the last character meet of the second trip. We were packing up and waiting for the coach to the airport when Goofy arrived so of course, we had to squish in one more character meet before we left.

I gave him the biggest hug and told him that I would see him soon.

I can’t wait to go back to Disneyland Paris and meet more characters. Have you ever been before? Who was your fave character meet?

Four People You Should Be Writing Letters To

The art of handwritten letters are dying. It’s sad but it’s true. Letters are the art of the past, a way to hold on to a moment or to share a memory. Letters are special and we shouldn’t let them die.

That is why I’m trying to bring back handwritten letters.

But if you’re not sure who to write a letter to then keep on reading..

Your Grandparents

All of my Grandparents have passed away now but I seriously wish that I had written them a letter while they were still alive. Simon has a letter from his Grandad that he treasures and I wish that my Grandparents and I could have shared a moment like that.

Your Grandparents are special because they have seen your parents grow up as well as yourself. They have witnessed two generations of their own in their lifetime and they deserve to be congratulated for being there every time anyone fell down. Grandparents aren’t so used to all this modern technology so it would be nice to remind them of the good old days but sending them a letter.

Your old best friend

You know that old friend who you no longer speak to much or you just fell out of touch with. Well get writing because you need to tell them about how important they were to you.

Tell them about your favourite memories with them and tell them all about how they made you feel. Guaranteed, they will appreciate the thought and you may even become friends again.

Your ex

You probably won’t want to write this letter but it’s an important one. Thank them. They broke your heart and thanks to them, you now know how to mend it.

They helped you to turn into the stronger person that you are today. Sometimes it’s just not meant to be and the earlier you learn this, the better.

Your favourite childhood teacher

You favourite childhood teacher was there for you while you struggled through the school years. Let’s be honest, school sucked but those teachers who were there for you just made it that little bit more bearable.

For me, it’s Dr Davies, my old maths teacher. Thank you for believe in me when I didn’t believe in myself. Thank you for continually pushing me and making me a better person.

Who are you going to be writing letters to? Let’s bring back handwritten letters..

Valentine’s Day Books ♡ A Collaboration With The Mum Who Read

I’ve wanted to collaborate with another blogger for the longest time. I had just never gotten around to it. But today is the day, the day that I’m collaborating with a fellow blogger. 

Today’s post is a collaboration with the very lovely Shannon from The Mum Who Read, so don’t forget to check out her blog too!

We were tossing some ideas back and forth until we eventually decided to write about books and Valentine’s Day. We both love books and romance so it’s the perfect topic.



So, if you’re looking for some romantic, love stories to read, keep on reading..! 

Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

If you haven’t read this book yet then I just do not know what you’re doing with yourself. 

Everything, Everything follows the story of a girl with a disease which means that she can not leave the house without getting ill. When a cute boy moves in next door, she falls in love and it follows their story.

This was a super cute love story with amazing illustrations that made it easy to read. I also thought this book did a fantastic job at balancing the lightheartedness with the more serious stuff.

Noughts And Crosses by Malorie Blackman

Ah, one of my all time favourite books by one of my all time favourite authors.

This book is all about racism and discrimination. Sephy is a cross and Callum is a nought. Noughts and crosses just don’t mix. But can Callum and Sephy find a way to be together?

This book was very hyped when I first read it and now I completely understand why!

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

This book is my favourite by Rainbow Rowell even though I love all of her work. Maybe I’m slightly bias as I share a first name with the main character but ya know.?!

Eleanor & Park follows two characters who have completely different backgrounds. Eleanor is the new girl in town and Park is a quiet, cool kid (in Eleanor’s eyes anyway). Over time, they begin to fall in love.

The book has very mixed reviews but for me, it’s perfect. I loved the characters and I loved their little love story.

What books do you plan on reading this Valentine’s Day?
