Disneyland paris a magical trip to remember


So last week I went to Disneyland paris for my birthday week, in fact the day we went was my actual birthday. The trip really was amazing and one I most certainly won’t forget. I have been to disneyland paris twice when I was a kid with my mum and sisters both in winter time and once for a day in sixth form.  This time however, I was very excited as I knew it was going to be a different experiance as an adult. So our journey by eurostar last tuesday was fun and we were all in high spirits especially after a mega weekend of partying. My three friends I went with had even brought me a cake and sung me happy birthday. We arrived at Disneyland in the afternoon, after dropping our bags at the hotel we headed to the park for the first time. We got stuck in with some rides . Later in the evening we went to planet hollywood for my birthday dinner which my friends naughtily wouldn’t let me contribute to, they really did spoil me. As a surprise my friends and the staff sang me Happy Birthday and I got a gygantic sundae see picture below, my friends of course happily helped me out with it. 


The night was lovely. The next day we headed back in the park to do some serious thrill seeking. When i was younger i was really scared of rollercoasters and hadn’t gone on all of the ones at disney, this time I went on all of them woo go me. We loved all the rides and were having a whale of a time. We enjoyed many lovely meals whilst there, all quite expensive but worth it. 


One of the highlights was getting to meet the characters and get pictures with them. I first met minnie mouse who anyone who knows me will tell you I adore. She was so fun and cute and whilst in the queue it was so sweet seeing her interact with the young kids and babies. I also met the man himself mickey mouse and cutie pluto. It was really cool how other characters were  just walking around the park. See my pictures below.

     
One of the biggest highlights for me were the illuminations which take place on the castle at night. We were all amazed at how incredible it was the projections along with the music and the fireworks made for an breathtaking show to perfectly finish the night. It was on quite late at 11pm but I guess they do it then to ensure that it is dark. If any of you go to disney i can’t recommend the illuminations enough they were truly stunning. There were also lots of shows on the castle stage which were sweet. All in all disney really was so fun and enjoyable and I’m glad that we got to be there to help celebrate the 25th anniversary. I am even considering going back for new year lol.

It’s been a while….


Oh my goodness I can’t believe it’s been a month since I last posted. Time is just passing so quickly his year. My grandparents always used to say as you get older time goes quicker and they weren’t wrong. I can’t it’s my birthday in a week. On saturday I am having a 90’s themed party which should be a laugh. We are all dressing up 90’s style too so I can’t wait. I am also going to Disneyland Paris on my birthday which is really exciting, it will be my fourth time going but the previous times were when I was a kid so it will be fun to experiance as an adult. Mickey and Minnie i’m coming for you lol. I will be going wih three of my best friends so it should be alot of fun. I have also booked to go on a relaxing holiday to Gran Canaria in september with another of my best friends, I am very much looking forward to some sun, sea and cocktails.

In other news, me and my friends finally have the keys to our house which is super exciting. There is a bit needed to be done in there first before we properly move in, but hopefully in a month or so we will be getting settled. I have still been gathering boxes to pack I have 4-5 boxes packed already. It is going to be very strange as my bedroom gets emptier. 

Work wise it has been so busy but summer always is, lots of babies are born in the summer due to couples enjoying many a cosy night in during the winter haha. I am going to be training to be an RCM (Royal college of midwives) rep for my trust which willbe good. It will be good to give the midwives in my hospital a voice and help to further improve working conditions as well as bettering patient care. 

I think thats pretty much everything going on with me at the moment, once thhings settle I hope to post more. Hope you are all well.

What i’m listening to at the moment 

So a change of direction for this post but thought I would share the songs I am loving at the moment.  I have to say that there is such good music out at the moment and it is really starting to feel like summer which is my favourite time of year. 


First up is one of my favourite female artists – Rita Ora who is back with new single “Your song” co written by Ed Sheeran. She has been away from music for a while but has come back with this fun, flirty, catchy summery track. It is such a fun bop and definately one that is going to be on repeat through the summer. Rita looks great in the cover art for the single and I can’t wait to hear what she has on her new album. I have had the pleasure of meeting her a few times and she is as fun and lovely as she comes across. I truly hope her music comeback is a success. Also keep a look out for the video which is coming soon.


Next up is Camila Cabello – Crying in the club. This is Camila’s first solo single since leaving fifth harmony. She has been featured on a few singles but this is her first offering on her own and i absolutely love it. I have had this on constant replay since it was released, its got such a good beat and rhythm and her voice sounds stunning on it, I also love the christina aguilera genie in a bottle sample in the chorus. She looks gorgeous in the video and having seen her perform it live on various shows she can definately perform and stand out as a solo artist. I think she is going to do really well and I am very much looking forward to her album.


Next up is Halsey feat Lauren Jauregui from fifth harmony and their single Strangers. I am in love with the aong not only does it have a great beat but the girls voice’s sound incredible together. They have real sensual, raspy voices and they sound lush. I already am a fan of Halsey but it is really good to hear Lauren’s voice and abilities away from fifth harmony, she is really talented. If you haven’t heard it go now and listen to it.


I am loving Mabel “Finders keepers” it is a true R&B track and that is right up my street. She kinda gives me 90’s vibes. I don’t know too much about Mabel as an artist as I heard this on the radio and its been on my playlist since but I think she is a fairly new artist om the scene and I am looking forward to hearing what else she brings out.

Now for a proper summer vibe song from French montana and Swae lee “unforgettable. It has such a catchy beat which just makes you want to get up and dance. It will be a great track for a summer BBQ and the boys look like they had so much fun filming the video. 


Last but definately not last are the fabulous Little Mix girls with their new song Power feat Stormzy.  The girls are absolutely smashing it at the moment they are really bringing out such catchy, great songs. Every song they have released I have loved. This song is a real girl power anthem and again has a great beat and killer vocals from the girls. The video is fabulous and they all look fabulous. They really have come so far since X Factor, I have seen them live and they are amazing performers and I am looking forward to seeing them again at the end of the month. 

So they are my fabourite songs at the moment. What are yours?

Time to pack, we are on the move 


So as some of you may know i will soon be moving out of my family home and into a new house with two of my best friends. I figured it really is time to start adulting as im turning 27 this year lol. I am still saving up for my very own place but until I have enough behind me I will be living with my friends who have bought a house and I will rent from them. So we will soon be getting the keys and be able to go in and decorate and put our stamp on the place. I am fairly organised in that I have bought my paints for my room and know exaxtly the colour scheme and look I am going for- thanks pinterest. I have started collecting cardboard boxes in anticipation of starting to pack up my belongings ready for the move. 


In terms of packing I don’t really know where to start, i guess with the stuff I wont need to use in the next few weeks. I am also fully aware I am going to have to be ruthless and throw out anything I don’t need or use. I don’t have much stuff but I think because I am currently in a small room it makes it look like I have mountains of stuff. I am very excited to start is new chapter in my life, looking forward to having full independance and also being fully responsible and having to make sure my bills are paid on time etc. I hope that I am a good housemate, I like to think that I am tidy, organised, clean up after myself, do not make lots of noise so all those things should make a good housemate right ? 

So does anyone have any pearls of wisdom / tips for me in regards to packing, moving and being a top housemate? Let me know all input would be greatly appreciated lol.

Will keep you updated on my progress over the coming weeks and months.

Never give up


Love this quote because its so true, no matter how bad we feel when waking up and how much we don’t want to face work we must always show up, put a smile on and get along with our day. There are often mornings I wake up and feel down or tired and like I want to stay in bed but once im up, put a bit of makeup on and get in to work with my fabulous colleagues and then out to see my patients I always perk up and realise that I am lucky to be in the position I am. I have an amazing job, amazing family and friends, I am independent and get to go on lovely holidays, have a nice car etc and this is all because I worked hard and didn’t give up. So I urge you all to keep smiling, keep givin your all and never ever give up because even if things seem bad they always work out in the end and things don’t stay bad for very long.

Taking each day as it comes


As a sufferer of Anxiety I am always worrying about the future and what is going to happen, whether im going to achieve what I want to, am I going to meet my soul mate or be too much and end up on my own, will I get the chance to have a family of my own. Anyone else with anxiety will know that your mind doesn’t stop and it can take ages to get to sleep at night because things are constantly spinning round in your head. This quote resonates as I do try to take things day by day but in the climate we are in and the uncertainty we all face in this country it is hard not to overthink. I like to be an organized person so I am always planning ahead, this is also partly to do with having to make sure I get time of from work for events and holidays etc so it is hard for me to not think about the next month and next year etc.

I do think this quote is a good bit of advice to aim for, I hope as I try to keep my anxiety managed I am able to adopt this method a bit more. As it says we just need to continue each day to take steps to get to where we want to be, but not put too much pressure on ourselves. Try to look at the positives from each day and any negatives use as a lesson to improve as a person. 

Anyway enough of my babbling, 

Stay fabulous

Quote of the day: Praise and celebration


Wise words from Oprah, it is so true we must praise and celebrate ourselves and our loves. Even if it is something small, it is still something that helps us grow and learn. It can be so easy to focus on the mistakes we make and times we go wrong, but we must all start to try to just learn from mistakes move on and try to do better the next time, whilst praising and rewarding ourselves when we do achieve something good or do a good deed for someone. Also don’t disregard compliments and praise heaped on you from others, they wouldn’t say it if they didn’t mean it. 

If you find it hard to accept or give yourself praise try to perhaps get a little notebook and write one thing or as many things as you like which made your day positive and enjoyable. With this collection you may well find that your positives outweigh the negatives which try to bring you down. Give it a try, you may surprise yourself. 

Go out there sparkle and stay fabulous.
