Scheduling, Supernatural and Shows.

I’m still suffering with some reading struggles at the moment, so I don’t have a book review to post today unfortunately. I just don’t feel like I have enough time to read lately and it sucks. Nevertheless, it’s blogtober, so I couldn’t leave you guys without some kind of blog post. As a result, today I am going to do a life and blog update kind of post because I don’t do those particularly often.

Goals for the Remainder of 2016.

As exciting as it is with all the blogtober and Halloween posts floating about at the moment, the end of 2016 is also rapidly approaching. I’m not one to usually make a lot of goals for myself, but I feel like I really need to sort myself out in some ways at the moment. As a result of this, I’ve decided to create a list of things I would like to have achieved, or just simply do by the end of this year…

Cotswold Wildlife Park & GRWM.

GRWM Cotswold Blog Photo.jpg

Earlier this week I went to Cotswold Wildlife Park to celebrate one of my best friends’ birthday. Since I took the day off from work to do this, it meant that I had the morning to take my time getting ready and I could put a bit more effort into my hair and makeup than I usually would during the week. Because of this, I decided that I would film it and make it a Get Ready With Me.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child #KeepTheSecrets.

#KeepTheSecrets; this post will not contain any spoilers for the play. I will give a very brief overview of it and share my thoughts on the play, but I will not be giving anything away.

If you watch my snapchat stories you will have noticed that this time last week I was in London. I briefly touched on this in a post earlier this week since my purpose for being in London was to go and see the new Harry Potter play.

Daily Blogging in June.

Yes, you have read that title correctly. I am planning on blogging every single day in June. This may be surprising because I have been publishing fewer posts lately and not exactly at my regular pace, but I miss posting so often and I’m starting to feel more inspired again.

Every couple of months now I’m going to have themed weeks on my blog. In April I had a Collab Week and next week I have an exciting Disney Week planned! For those who didn’t read my last update post, I am off to Disneyland Paris next week. Obviously, I can’t take you all with me, so I thought I would share the Disney joy with a week of Disney related blog posts instead.

Disney and Nail Art Wednesday.

These don’t come around too often, especially on a Wednesday, but today’s post is a chatty, update kind of post.

Where is Nail Art Wednesday? I imagine well, I like to think you’re asking.

Well, Nail Art Wednesday is going on a little break. It is really difficult to keep up with creating, painting and writing about three nail art designs a week which all fit together under a theme. Arguably, I could just post one design a week, but it feels too little, plus you all said in a poll a month or so ago that three was the ideal amount of nail art designs you would like to see per post.

Also, sometimes I just have no ideas for nail art designs. Or, I’ll have an idea, but I paint it and it comes out an utter mess, so I’ll actually end up painting five designs a week, but only half of them are actually good enough to show.

I still love painting my nails but with a full time job, other blog posts I need to write, books to read and review and friends I try and see about once a week, it is really difficult to find the time to plan, research and create nail art designs. As a result, I am going to relax a bit and not get so obsessed with always having a pattern on my nails. I don’t want to give myself a deadline and say that Nail Art Wednesday will be back on a specific date; I’m going to let inspiration find me because I am feeling really uninspired right now despite my efforts.

If you enjoy my Nail Art Wednesday posts, perhaps you haven’t yet seen them all, so they can all be found here. Or if you’d rather skip the reading you can visit my nail art gallery.

Now, Nail Art Wednesday isn’t the only thing I wanted to chat to you all about. On Friday last week my best friend and I booked a holiday…

TO DISNEYLAND PARIS!

This time in five weeks we’ll already actually be there, it’s so exciting. I’ve already gotten a bit obsessive with my planning, but hey, it’s good to be prepared and I love being organised. I’m trying not to go too overboard because some things you just can’t plan for and I don’t want to give us certain times to get things done by as I don’t want us to end up stressing out about things we have still yet to do.

I’m hoping that I will be able to be just as organised with my blog by getting some posts scheduled for while I’m away. I’m thinking of making it a Disney Week, so if there are any Disney related posts you’d love to see do let me know!

In case you’re not aware I do have YouTube and while it is very beauty focused I’ve decided that I’d really like to vlog my Disney trip, so make sure you’re subscribed to me on there (link will be below) to be notified of when it is up!

I think that is everything to update you all on for now, I hope you are all well and I’d love to hear in the comments if you have been to Disneyland Paris and what your favourite rides and places to visit there are?!

New (Temporary?) Schedule.

“People who are chronically tardy never understand the many ways in which they screw up the schedules of people who are punctual and ‘normal’…” – Lauren Kate.

Today’s post is to inform you all of a slight change to the blog schedule. I have been keeping up with my current schedule of posting roughly six times a week for eight months now. It has lasted a whole lot longer than I expected, I mean it was only supposed to be for two months over the summer, but I’ve enjoyed it so much that I’ve kept up with it. This change isn’t due to me no longer enjoying it, but because I’m feeling stressed.

I Hate My Face.

“What is that you express in your eyes? It seems to me more than all the print I have read in my life.” – Walt Whitman.

Before I delve into this post properly, I just want to address that this isn’t me being vain and craving compliments. I’m not making this post to tell you all about how I don’t like certain features of my face because they’re too big, or too small etc. I want to talk about expressions, facial expressions.

Supernatural Convention: Asylum 15.


booklet
“Family don’t end with blood, boy.”

At the weekend I attended a Supernatural convention known as Asylum 15 which took place in the UK, more specifically, in Birmingham. The event was run by Rogue Events and I have attended a few of their conventions in the past, so I kind of knew what to expect in advance.

A great deal of people I know have never been to a convention before, so I am going to describe it as best as I can. The people who run the event book guests for the convention and these guests tend to be actors from the show the event is dedicated to. For example, this convention had guests from the TV show Supernatural and the event presented as many opportunities as possible for us to interact with them. This included stage talks (Q&A’s), photos, in-person autograph signings and meet and greets. Of course, all of this comes at a price, so things such as photos, meet and greets and extra autographs come at an additional cost to your ticket.

Fall Out Boy.

“Am I more than you bargained for yet?
I’ve been dying to tell you anything you want to hear
Cause that’s just who I am this week” – Fall Out Boy.

FOB8If you follow me on Twitter you will know that I went to see Fall Out Boy on Tuesday. If you don’t, then it’s never too late to do so as I find that it’s a very useful way to keep you updated on blog things and related content.

For anyone unaware of Fall Out Boy, they are an American rock band formed in 2001 and consisting of four members: Patrick Stump, Pete Wentz, Joe Trohman and Andy Hurley.
