My 2017 Statistics

Hey Guys x

I did this last year and it was really interesting to look at, so I wanted to try it again this year.

Each year I keep track of a few things in my life in a diary, and then at the end of the year I count up the different things and write a post about it.

This is gonna be extremely short, but who wants to read a long post on New Years Eve anyway?!

Movies Watched: 211

TV Shows Started: 49

Cinema Trips: 16

Books Read: 22

Fanfic Chapters Uploaded: 118

Fanfic Chapters Written: 289

Celebrity Crushes: 13

Tattoos Gotten: 1

Blog Posts Written: 110

Overall as you can see, quite a lot has happened this year.

I don't know if the year has been good or bad for me, it's kind of been a bit average.

So, here's hoping 2018 is the best year yet, for myself, and for all of you!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

December and 2017 Favourites!

Hey Guys x

It's my last 'Favourites' post of the year and I am so excited to tell you what I've been loving! Like last year at this time, I'm gonna tell you my December faves as well as what I've been loving for the entire year!
Be prepared, because this is a long one! Let's get going!

Favourite Movie: Baby Driver


I saw this very recently (I'm late, I know!) and I really really enjoyed it! Ansel Elgort is amazing in the role of Baby and all of the other supporting actors and actresses were also amazing. I'll probably review it properly in the New Year but for now, it's my favourite film of the month!

Movie Of The Year (1): Superhero Movies

Merry Christmas!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

I don't have anything to say today, and I'm not gonna make you spend part of your Christmas day reading a huge post.

But I do want to say that Blogmas this year hasn't been as difficult as I thought it would be. In fact, it's been fun.

I haven't really been in a festive mood this year, and I'm still not - I guess that's just something that happens.

But the blogmas posts that I've read and the vlogmas videos that I've watched have been so festive that they've kind of rubbed off on me, so thanks for that!

And in general, whether you read one post of the whole of my Blogmas 2017, thanks for sticking with me, I really appreciate it.

So that's the end of Blogmas, but there will still be posts up before the end of the year, so this is in no means a goodbye post.

I hope you have the happiest of Christmases.

Tell me what you're doing for your Christmas day in the comments! And if your Christmas has already finished, tell me how…

A Bad Moms Christmas | Blogmas Day 24

Image
Happy Christmas Eve guys!

So as you can tell, today's review is 'A Bad Mom's Christmas'. It's the first time this Blogmas that I've reviewed a movie that is actually a Christmas movie!

Also, if you haven't seen the first Bad Mom's film, you might want to!

In the last movie, three mothers decided that they wanted to stop trying to be perfect. This time around, these mothers have decided to stop trying to have the perfect Christmas - as well as having to put up with their own mothers over the festive season.

I have a lot of feelings about this film. The first is that I understand why they did the sequel like this. Christmas movies may not make the most money, but there's always a market for them. So this was an easy sequel to make, because the fact that it's a Christmas movie kind of makes it sell itself.

The main selling point of this film was the comedy. And I have to admit, there were many things about the film that did make me laugh, a lot. H…

The Magic Of Christmas | Blogmas Day 23

Image
Hey Guys! Happy Blogmas day 23!

I'm just gonna be honest, I have no idea what today's post was supposed to be.

I planned all of my Blogmas posts in one of my classes when I really should have been listening to the tutor! But anyway, for this post I just wrote 'The Magic of Christmas' and left it until now, when I realised that I have no clue what to write!

So I'm just gonna write some stuff that may or may not make sense.

Christmas is for sure a magical time, there's no denying that.

Even if you yourself don't feel festive, the rest of the country does (if you live in the UK that is), and maybe even a lot of places in the world. It's really hard to get away from the festivities

And even if you're not into the whole Christmas thing, the temperature drops to the point where you feel like going outside might kill you and if it rains, it snows. Everyone is feeling the same temperature and seeing the same weather - you literally can't get away from …

Begin Again | Blogmas Day 22

Happy Blogmas day 22 guys!

So today's review is a film that I saw for the first time at the beginning of the month and it instantly made me feel happy and warm and fuzzy, in the way that Christmas should. So I thought that it was only fitting to review it this close to Christmas day!

The film is about a songwriter called Gretta who goes to New York with her boyfriend, also a songwriter/singer, when he gets a record deal. However, for one reason or another, the pair break up. Leaving Gretta in New York with no idea of what to do next. Enter Dan, a record executive who discovers Gretta singing in a club just when he's searching for a new sound. Together, and with the help of some friends, they use New York City to make Gretta's first album.

This film is beautiful, just beautiful.

It's a musical, but not in the 'I have to sing this song to express my feelings every 5 minutes' musical, a musical in the sense that music plays such a huge part in the film that it li…

Christmas Tag | Blogmas Day 21

Happy Blogmas Day 21!

Today I'm doing a Christmas Tag, as I always to during Blogmas. The problem is that there's not that many floating around, at least that I can see.

So I hope I haven't done this one before, but if I have, I have.

Feel free to do it yourself and leave me your blog links in the comments, I'd love to see all the different answers!

I found this tag on the blog 'Ella In The Big City', whose blog you can check out by clicking on the name.

What's Your Favourite Christmas Movie?


It has to be The Family Stone. I haven't watched it this year yet but I have it recorded so that I can watch it as soon as I'm in the mood to. It's a great film about family drama, love, laughter, arguments and everything else that a family generally gets up to during Christmas time. Plus, it makes you appreciate the family that you have - and it makes you thankful that your family isn't this one!

Halloween | Blogmas Day 20

Image
Happy Blogmas day 20 guys!

It seems really weird to be talking about Halloween in the middle of Blogmas, especially so close to Christmas! But I really wanted to talk about this film so that's what I'm gonna do!

This is quite an old film, 1978, so you've probably already heard of it and seen it, if you wanted to. I waited such a long time to see it, and had such low expectations.

The film begins through the eyes of 6-year-old Michael Myers. It shows him on Halloween, as he watches his sister and her boyfriend hang out, waits for the boyfriend to leave, and brutally murders his sister. He's locked up for 15 years. However, he manages to escape and makes his way back to his home-town. In his home town lives a high school student called Laurie Strode. She and her friends become Michael's latest targets.

I really really enjoyed this film!

You have to take into account when it was made. It's not gonna have the production value of the Conjuring, it's not gonna h…

My Favourite Christmas Songs | Blogmas Day 19

Image
Hey Guys x

It's time to get festive with some Christmas music!

Not that I'm feeling particularly festive, but Christmas songs will definitely help me out with this! I have a strong love for Christmas songs, because they all have an extremely magical, festive feel to them.

And unlike movies, no one ever has an argument about whether or not a Christmas song is a Christmas song!

Anyway, let me show you my favourites!

One More Sleep - Leona Lewis

This is, in my opinion, the most underrated Christmas song, but I love it so much and listen to it all year round. It's a Christmas song and a love song, about someone wanting it to be Christmas so that they can see their partner again. Listen to this amazing song!

All I Want For Christmas - Mariah Carey

Obviously this is such a classic that I don't even need to say why it's on this list, and you've all definitely heard it before!

Santa Claus Is Coming To Town - Mariah Carey

I actually love this song even more than I love …

The Impossible | Blogmas Day 18

Image
Happy Blogmas day 18!

Here's another film review for you all - The Impossible! But just a warning, this is not a lighthearted happy film, so maybe don't watch it if you don't want to cry over the festive season!

The film is about a family of 5, who go on holiday in Thailand for the Christmas holidays. However, the day after Christmas the family, and everyone else in the vicinity, are struck by the devastating blow of a tsunami. The family are torn apart and separated. Can they find their way back to each other before it's too late? Can they even survive?

I loved this film. it is based on the true story of a family that got caught up in the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami, which makes the film so much more heartfelt and devastating.

I originally watched this film because Tom Holland, who plays Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, was in it. But honestly, I'm so glad that I watched it anyway because I think it's a film that everyone should watch at least once …

My Favourite Christmas Films | Blogmas Day 17

Hey Guys! Happy Blogmas day 17!

When I was choosing which movies to mention in this post, I discovered that I've seen a lot more Christmas movies than I thought I had!

Check out every film on this list because they're all amazing!

Love Actually


I'm pretty sure that everyone who wants to see this film already has because it's one of the most promoted movies around Christmas time, so there's no point in me telling you the ins and outs of the story now, but if you haven't seen this and you want to, please do.

Elf


I haven't seen this in a while, but I think it will always be one of my favourite Christmas movies just because of how original it is - and how it's undeniably about Christmas. Again, this film is really talked about at this time of year, so you probably already know what it's about, but if you don't, go and watch it!

The Family Stone


This one is a lot less publicised than the other two, but it's one of my absolute favourites. It's ab…
