    Hey everyone! Well and truly smashing this Blogmas thing and we are 2 weeks in, amazing! I never thought I’d be able to do it but here I am… In todays post let’s break down some of my favourite things from this year, from movies to music, you know…the usual.  FAVOURITE MOVIE  photo credit 5 words people, CALL ME BY YOUR NAME. This absolutely heart wrenching, beautiful, picturesque film shaped my year I’m telling you. I watched this earlier in the year and the proceeded to watch it about 12 times after that, usually like every Saturday when I was bored.  If you haven’t seen this film I want you to close this blog right now,…

  • 2018 Travels – BLOGMAS DAY 12

    Good day everyone, happy 12th day of Blogmas!  This year has been lovely for my little travels. Let’s have a little recap shall we… COPENHAGEN & LOMMA; SWEDEN – FEBRUARY I whisked Dan away like the smashing girlfriend I am to Copenhagen and to visit our friends in Sweden for a week. It was delightful. We did typical touristy things in Copenhagen – Tivoli Gardens, we saw Nyhavn which was stunning and strolled around the little streets. It was freezing cold and snowed which just made me so happy. It was the perfect way to celebrate Dans birthday and start the year off.  Jönköping; SWEDEN – MAY  So off I popped to…

  • What am I grateful for? – BLOGMAS DAY 11

    Hey everyone!  I always speak about how important gratitude is to me and especially at this time of year, you reflect on what has happened and how you’ve managed to get through things. For that, I show gratitude.  In life I am grateful for many things, here are just a few:  FAMILY  In what has been a hard year for my family, they’ve still all been there at the hardest time and as a family we have managed to get through everything together. Love has grown and bad times are replaced with this love and laughs. In the worst of times we build each other up and for that I am forever…

  • Christmas Tag – BLOGMAS DAY 7

    Good day everyone! I hope your Blogmas is going well and you’re super stoked for Christmas. I’ve done a Christmas tag that I just found somewhere online, lots of fun and has me thinking so much about Christmas.  1. Use one noise to describe how excited you are for Christmas. RAAAAAAAAAAAAGHHHH – Which is the noise that little boy makes it that vine,  I watched that DAILY for a long time.  2. Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve? Nuh uh, although Dan and I exchanged Christmas pyjamas on Christmas Eve last year and we are making it our ‘thing’.  3. What holiday traditions are you looking forward to most this year?…

  • Do Movies Shape You As Humans?

    Hello everyone! I hope you are having a great hump day. As I just went to shave my eyebrows because I am a girl who doesn’t want to go through PAIN – I thought “why the fuck do I do this?” I then remembered the first time I ever saw a girl do this and it was from Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging when Georgia shaves half her eyebrow off. Now every time I go to shave the loose hairs from my eyebrows I think of that moment. It took be back to being 13/14 and seeing that movie at least 4 times at the cinema and then countless times…

  • What is Success & Am I Successful?

    Before I go on, I AM BACK HIIIIIIIIYAAAAAA. I haven’t posted on my blog in ages, I’ve been busy on YouTube and you know, I’ve never quite felt the love for it like I have for my blog. I love writing and I miss writing, talking to a camera? Perhaps not for me. I’ve got a whole load of posts planned for Blogmas, yeah that’s right, Shannon is doing Blogmas. I did it back in 2014 (I think!) and loved it. So there is no better way to throw myself back in than back to back blog posts, am I right ladies?! I had some thoughts on my way to…

  • You Bring Me Home.

    Hello everyone, it’s been a bloody long time hasn’t it? If you weren’t aware I’ve been spending a lot more time focussing on my YouTube channel and I seem to have abandoned my original outlet – this blog. If you want to watch me ramble, you can do so hereAnyway, on to todays post… Look at my new little tattoo, isn’t it so perfect?  I’ve done posts in the past about my tattoos and their meanings and this one is the one which people might be like “why the fuck have you done that” – you know what they say, don’t get anyone’s name tattooed on you. I learnt that…

  • Mental Health: A Boyfriends Point Of View

    Hello everyone! Happy Sunday, here we are, part two of my three blog posts with my loved ones on mental health. This time it is with my boyfriend, Dan. I have spoken about Dan so many times on this blog and in real life, he is my main talking point. I’ve spoken about being in love when having anxiety before here – it’s fucking hard. It is so hard, to put someone through something when they have the choice to leave, it’s hard to try and hold on to someone. But with Dan, I don’t feel like that although I will always say to him “you could have a much easier…

  • Mental Health: A Best Friends Point Of View

    Hey everyone, Welcome to part one of three…I am starting a new little ‘series’ where I will get 3 of the most important people in my life and my mental health journey to just talk a little about how it has affected them. First of all, my best friend Ben Ben has been my best friend for many years. We met at school, I used to go into one of the blocks and watch him play ping pong and then he would come over and make me laugh until I wanted to pee (he still does)  We have a very special friendship, I love him like a brother. I laugh,…

  • Take Your Own Advice…

    Hey everyone, As you well know I enjoy doing a blog post when times are very tough – it helps me. Right now I’m having a fucking tough day. Heres the thing I can talk the talk but I can’t walk the walk, I can do blog posts upon blog posts talking about how to try and get through bad spells of mental health but here I am, still struggling daily. Some days are better, some really are not and today is one of those days. I’ll be honest I have spent the day panicking, internally and externally. I have wound my mum up all day and annoyed myself. I…
