Photography / Chester Zoo

One thing I'd love to do with this blog is to improve my photography skills, I believe that constantly posting photos of different topics will help me achieve that. I really do love photography, I'm not great at it though. I would love to do some posts on here frequently with some photos, maybe after a day out or such. At college, I do animal care, Today we went on a trip to our local zoo. I set out my aim to try and take some 'average - good' photos, I think I might have completed that task. 

This is where I'm going to leave the pictures, as a gallery style post. Expect to see some of these on my Instagram soon!

Favourite Films

A lot of people would agree with me that this time of year is the best for watching films, I personally love getting cosy with blankets and putting on a nice film on a cold wintery night. I wanted to compile a list of my 3 all time favourite films, to share them, and to remind me for if I'm struggling for ideas one day.

I have always loved Monsters Inc, It has always been one of my happy films. Its such an escape from reality to watch a 'childrens' film, and it makes it even better when that film is from your childhood, so for that reason, Monsters Inc is one of my all time favourites. 

White Chicks is a film I could not miss off this list, I'm not sure if thats because it is an amazing film, or the memories I have linked to it. I have memories of me staying up way past my bedtime as a child and watching this with my sister, so this film is definitely one that can make me happy. Writing this makes me want tout this film on, thats how I know I've made a good choice with this one!

I relate heavily to this film, well, until the grinch starts to like christmas. Most of my friends call me 'The Grinch' this time of year, I'm known for not liking christmas, but ironically I do like the festive films. I think this film is such a classic, and It would not be christmas without it! 

Let me know on twitter what your favourite films are, or if you like the films I've chosen!

November 2016 Clothing Wishlist

I am a big fan of autumn and winter, one of the reasons being because of the clothes. I love how everyone wraps up and clothes get better. I never have been a fan of summer fashion, its always been autumn and winter for me. I would swap shorts and flip-flops for a coat and boots any day. I thought today I would make a list of some of the wintery clothes I've seen and would love.

The second I saw this shirt, I knew it would be perfect for this time of the year, It looks so festive, and long sleeve is a must have now that its getting a lot colder. I think that this shirt would look really nice with a pair of black jeans, and you could dress it up or down with a choice of shoes.

Coats, coats, coats. A couple of weeks ago, me and my friends had a conversation about how all of a sudden it's gotten really cold, they all had something to moan about regarding the cold weather, I however was very happy at the sudden plunge of temperature, 'Its time to get the coats out!' I thought to myself. I saw this coat on the Topman website and I want to leave the house right now to buy it, I will definitely be buying this in the next few weeks.

I've had a pair of docs in the past, and sadly, I had to sell them as my feet grew, Im still salty about that. I am now at least 90% confident my feet will stay at size 9, so I think I'm ready for a new pair. Although the price slightly does put me off.

So there is three items I've seen this month that really grip me, I'm thinking of doing this monthly. That would be cool to see how fashion in shops change seasonally to I think.

Current Favourites

The middle of a month is an awkward time to upload a favourite things post, as its not quite a monthly favourites, it's more of a mix of things I've been loving recently, either last week or from two months ago. Sometimes I like writing favourites as a kind of log, or diary of things I've liked in the past, and see how my opinion can change, I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I love writing them.

Firstly I've really been enjoying 'We The Unicorns', I love how its a varied mixture of serious business and laughing until you snort. I love that we finally have a type of news outlet place for #TeamInternet, rather than looking at the horrible things going on in the news, I would much rather go to We The Unicorns and find out what Tanya Burr has been doing. If you haven't already heard of them, I think you should check them out after you've read this right now!!

Now for music! I have had the song 'wonderland' on repeat for about a month now, Its by Taylor Swift on her album 1989. I love this song so so so much, I feel like it has the ability to change my mood within a second, even if you're not a Taylor Swift fan try and give it a listen, I'm sure you'll love it!

Food time, this is a really strange one, but I have been constantly craving this. I have recently learned that a chicken legend meal from McDonalds is my best friend. I have it totally plain, with just BBQ sauce, and its heaven. Some mornings I wake up and thats all I can think about, some people think of a person or whats going to happen in their day, I think of a chicken legend.

Finally, TV, I have really been loving Im A Celebrity.. I look forward to this every year, And I feel like it goes way too fast. I personally dislike christmas, but this is one thing to put me in a festive mood, when I'm a celebrity comes on, i know its not long to go to christmas. I'm really looking forward to see how this series goes.

I'd love to hear what your favourites are, make sure to tell me on twitter :)
