Bedroom Drawers

I did not realise how hard it is to find a bedside table/draw…That has a slide out draw at the top and a cupboard at the bottom.

As I write this as well…I am currently sitting and viewing Black Panther…I’m thinking about writing a review about it, but I have feeling it’s just going to be amazing!

You’ve got to have a Hobby

41. Hobbies

I love Hobbies…I am all about the Hobbies…

I feel like everyone needs a Hobby, or some kind of outlet. I am grateful to all the Hobbies  in the whole world because I feel like they are such a good distractions and just give our minds a break from the rat race of the world.

Some of my Hobbies are (in no particular favourite order):

  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Playing Games
  • Crafts
  • Baking…I consider baking to be more like cupcakes/cakes/muffins/biscuits…Food you don’t “need” to make, rather more that they are fun.
  • I don’t know if you’d call watching “Safari Live” a “hobby” but I enjoy it, it’s like watching your favourite “YouTuber” I guess? Is that even an Hobby?lol

I am grateful for all the Hobbies and they have been great distractions for myself personally. When I first developed my odd anxiety symptoms, doing all the Hobbies above distracted me and with those distractions slowly I’ve gotten better. I have often thought lately about making my Hobbies my work…But I don’t know if I’m brave enough or would even know where to start!

 

Fake Liebster Award news ~.^

So I decided to “steal this” if you will from the awesome Blogger that is Emilyxonline (Beauty and Lifestyle Blog) Please check her out, it is an amazing Blog! I decided to steal it from her, because I realise it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these. These are some great questions!

THE RULES:
Answer the 11 questions that your nominator has asked you.

  1. Nominate 11 other bloggers (with under 200 followers)
  2. Ask your nominees 11 questions.
  3. Let them know you nominated them!

Instead of tagging 11 people, anyone who wants to do this post. feel free too! Make sure to tag me in them so I can read your answers and get to know more about you!!

My questions for all of you:

1. What is one thing you love about yourself?

This has honestly been the hardest question to answer. I’ve been feeling very lost recently and not very respected in a lot of different areas of my life. So it’s hard to think there is anything lovable there. The one thing I do love about myself is that no matter what I’m going through, I do not take my stuff out on those who have done me no wrong.
2. If you had the chance to meet your favorite youtuber, who would it be and why?

I never have but I would love too! Their “career” isn’t really YouTubing, but their YouTube channel is now apart of their career. I suggest that if you’ve watched RuPaul’s Drag Race, or are aware of the Drag scene. Please check out “Bro’Laska“…It’s such a great and funny channel! This link is for their play list. You will not be disappointed! They have made me laugh and gotten me through some really depressing nights. If I’m in a bad way, I will play their videos before I fall asleep. Unfortunately, there last few videos have been extremely short.
3. Have you ever traveled out of your country? If so, where did you go?

I have, I live in Australia. I’ve travelled too two places, one was the United States and the other was the UK. I loved both places, they were so gorgeous and I travelled to the US and then UK straight after and the difference in the greenery, was shocking! I couldn’t get over it! Literally,lol.
4. One quote you will always stand by?

I will always stand by the Quote:

Will Shakespeare

It was written by the one and only William Shakespeare, but it is also on my Great Grandfathers head stone. I feel like we have lost this a lot, and it is probably the hardest thing to do in this world. Especially in the world we live in, with all the photo shop and filters and this almost “need” to have the best of everything, even if we don’t really want it. I think we need hold to this quote more than ever. In a world where people don’t want to listen to other sides and just want to bully, it can be tiring to fight for ourselves, but we need to more than ever!
5. Favorite childhood memory?

This is an interesting question, because my answer is a weird one. Whenever my brother and I would both get grounded at the same time, especially if it was an all-nighter one. We would sit in our bedroom door frames with our pillow and blankets and just talk to each other. We were probably being punished because we were doing something to each other, but we would just sit, talk and joke. I can’t even tell you what we even talked about, or why we were grounded, but they were honestly my favourite times.

6. Advice you would give your teenage daughter (if you ever have one)?

The best advice that would probably give her is that, she needs to decide for herself what is right and what is wrong, ultimately she is the one that HAS to live with that decision. If she knows that something is wrong and she goes through with it anyways. I will be there, but she has to be willing to follow through with the consequences of her actions. That whatever her decision, she needs to be willing to take responsibility for that choice.  For example, if she walks pass someone being bullied, she needs to really ask herself “Why”…I think that I’m pretty harsh sometimes,lol
7. Are you more of an eyeshadow or lipstick lover?

Definitely a lipstick lover. I am so low maintenance and trying to do all that stuff to your eye, it’s a lot of work,lol…I also do love though how lipstick just seems to give me that feeling of “I am finally ready, this is it”. “This is me for the whole day/evening/party.” I tend to put lipstick on last. I tend to just put an eye liner on. Sometimes I will put eye-shadow on, but it is really rare and usually I have practised with the colour (or colours) earlier.
8. Favorite high-end foundation (if you have one) and favorite drugstore foundation?

I don’t really have one to be honest.
9. How often do you wash your makeup brushes/sponges?

As mentioned before I am really low maintenance when it comes to make-up. So I don’t really clean that that often, because I don’t really use them that much. Most of the things I use, don’t really need to use makeup brushes and sponges. If I ever have to use that kind of makeup, I’ve probably borrowed it from my brother…He’s a Drag Queen =D lol Far more make up maintenance than me,lol
10. Favorite thing to do on the weekend?

I love to sit down, with a cup of tea/coffee, play “The Sims” and then watch “Safari Live“. Oh I love it! I would literally do it every single day if I could =D Please feel free to join us…I’ll be there! If the weather is nice, I will go for a walk with my Dog and usually walk by the shop, buy a nice lunch, just before the drive.

11. What do you like about my blog? 

I like how your Blog is relatable, even though I am low maintenance when it comes to make up, I don’t feel like it’s too extreme, that I just don’t get it. It’s also given me a few handy tips as well, so I don’t need to take so long,lol. I really enjoyed your “Get UNready with me” post, as I feel like I have no idea what I should be doing at night, but should be doing something! I also didn’t know that you lived in Australia at that point,lol

Summer and I

I usually do these posts on a Friday because it’s give me a whole week to reflect from the last one. I can’t help but start to dream of Summer though even before Friday. Due to me being in the Southern Hemisphere, we are heading towards the colder weather. Each day is getting that little more warmer. Hence why I am writing this Blog earlier than I usually do, because being cold makes me think of all the lovely warm things Summer brings with it.

  • Dresses and Skirts
  • Ice Blocks…I don’t really eat ice cream, mainly ice blocks.
  • It feels easier to travel to places.
  • Places just seem nicer to visit. Not only do I mean actual places seems nice to visit, but as my above answer says, travelling just seems more pleasant.
  • It’s usually lighter outside for longer.
  • For me, being in the southern hemisphere, means that Summer is during Christmas. Lots of public holidays, lots of seeing people you love.
  • Going for leisurely walks with my dog, instead of rushed ones, hoping we don’t get wet and cold…and potentially getting ourselves sick.
  • New Years is also over Summer and this year we’re going to be going to a hotel looking over a popular beach. It’s going to be fantastic!

Do we demand too much?

Last week I wrote a review about a movie that I had seen called “Inside Out” I had had plans to see it while it was in the cinemas, but it just never happened. So on Netflix we saw it was on there and so we decided to watch and I had ended up being very disappointed to not really enjoy it, as I just expected to as everyone else had told me I would. Which had made me start to question about getting caught up in the bandwagon of these “must see” movies.

I believe this is because we are given SO much detail about the movie before it even comes out, that we have these expectations of what the movies will be in it’s entirety, before we’ve even seen it.

Take the live action film Beauty and the Beast for example. People were making HUGE judgements just based on the whole Emma Watson not wearing a corset thing. I have literally seen people make comments about how they are not going to see the film, because she’s not wearing the “true” outfit. Which is kind of ironic to me, since the whole movie is about not judging based on appearances. Then I thought to myself, would it have been better to notice it once the film has come out and not before? I honestly didn’t notice that she wasn’t even wearing a corset until people pointed it out. So people could make better judgements, whether it really makes that much of a difference to the film. Which, while I get the sentiment, I just don’t think it should be the focus of the film.

Sometimes to me it feels like there has to be a social or political point to make for people to go see a film, rather than just go see a film, to enjoy it. Sometimes I honestly feel the fun has been taken out of just seeing a film for the sake of seeing a film that you just want too. Sometimes it feels like there is just so much information out there and of course someone is going to be offended by something, and it’s hard to see a film without those people giving you a hard time about what they feel all offended by and I just want to see the film.

There have been many times when I have to go to see a movie a few weeks after it’s come out and I’ve been expecting to really enjoy it and I didn’t. Or films that I’ve seen when everyone else did, enjoyed it, watched it later and just did not enjoy it.

Has this ever happened to you readers? Do you feel like we are getting to much information before a film is even out? Have you ever decided not see a film or to see one because of all the “information” before a film comes out, or does it not affect you?

I am choosing to enjoy this Beauty and the Beast film.

Stuff and Things

So since my post last week about “Little Nooks” for your reading areas. I have found so many more amazing things that you can just have in your room. I’ve listed a few of my new favourite sites (where I’ll look for hours, but never buy anything). I’m always trying to find “things and stuff” for that day I win the lotto and can have my dream house.

I found this amazing page on PinInterest. The page is called “Cool Stuff for Teens” but it’s really a bunch of amazing reading chairs that you can have in any reading room. To the very extravagant chairs, to many different variations of the ‘bean bag’.

Now personally when I’m reading a book, I tend to drink warm drinks with my book. Don’t know why, but I just find it so much more relaxing. However, I found these amazing USB mini fridges where you can put in a can or two, or even a bottle and keep it nice and cool. You can probably even put a nice glass of wine in it, to keep to cool. These products can range from about $30.00 – $60.00, depending on the brand, type and size.
Mini PC USB Refrigerator Fridge (ebay)
Portable Mini USB Fridge Cooler Mini USB PC Refrigerator (DH Gate.com)

Then as well there is always the little bits and pieces that go into your room. D.I.Y Ready Now I know a lot of these are for “teenage girls” BUT just your creativity to suit it to your needs (or wants…Should stop looking at these sites, they make really want to win the lottery,lol)

 

One with just a big amazing listing of things (I may have already bought one or two things from this list!):

So enjoy these articles! I hope they inspire you to create =D

Share Your World … Week 52

Share Your World

http://ceenphotography.com/2015/12/28/share-your-world-2015-week-52/

Wow! So the last of “Share Your World” … What a ride! Who knows what I’ll be doing next year! SO let’s finish this one with a BANG! =D

Tell how you are feeling today in the form of a weather report. (For example, partly cloudy, sunny with a chance for showers, etc.) 

I actually writing this on the Tuesday 29th, but it wont be posted until Thursday the 31st (Happy New Year). However, the whole week is supposed to be really the same (somewhere around mid 30 Celsius … High 80 – early 90 Fahrenheit). So it should actually be nicely warm all this week.

What is most memorable about your high school years?

I would have to say that it was the final year of High School for me (and not because it was the last year either). I wasn’t “popular”, but I wasn’t “geeky” either. My little group could pretty much sit where ever we wanted because were kind of cool with everyone. Down Under our Wendys (Australia) sells Hot Dogs and not burgers and every Friday lunch time my girlfriends and I would always get a “Cheesy Dog” (pretty much a Hot Dog with cheese, instead of just sauce). Every now and then I still get them,lol.

Have you ever owned a rock, pet rock, or gem that is not jewerly?

Knowing me, I probably did, but I can’t honestly remember if I did or not.

Complete this sentence:  I like watching…

Ustream Djuma (live stream) in the morning, I usually have that on in the morning, it’s extremely soothing and very meditative, just some sounds of very early African sounds. Also, whenever I can, I like to watch Ustream Wild Earth Safari’s, they are only twice a day for three hours each, but it’s amazing!
