A Festive Q&A (plus some wrapping)

As I mentioned in my last post (which you can watch and read here) I’ve left my Christmas shopping a little bit late – as I’m writing this it’s the 22nd of December and I’m sat on the floor of my local shopping centre, surrounded by busy Christmas shoppers, so I could finish my shopping and get this video uploaded at the same time. So, with a similar thought process, I decided to wrap a couple of presents and answer some Christmas Tag questions to share a little of my Christmas with you.

It’s weird for me to be leaving all these Christmas preparations to the last minute, I’m always the one Continue reading


Reviewing Beauty and the Beast



I’ve wanted to do some film reviews on my blog for a while now and, as a massive Disney fan, I thought starting with Bill Condon’s live action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast would be a lovely place to start. But please do excuse my rambling – I still don’t know what I’m doing!

That was it until year 9, when we had one lesson in which we were shown a presentation showing symptoms of different STDs, shown how to put on a condom, then given condoms which were promptly taken off us. Honestly, I still don’t know why they bothered giving them out in the first place. In fact, there is a lot I still don’t know regarding SRE full stop!
