My Little Box // Vlog vol:2

Hello everyone! Iv been a tad busy recently but I found time to shoot this extremely quick and messy My Little Box video blog. It was bit strange opening it on camera, I felt like I was under a lot of pressure to know what to say and be cool haha! So maybe next time ill look it in first so I might have something interesting to say! I did enjoy this box though, it had some really cool things in it.

So there we have it. A very awkward and embarrassing vlog! This week is my birthday and I'm so excited! I love birthdays and this one is going to be extra special because were going to see the Foo Fighters!!! On my actual birthday too, which is even cooler, and I get to work a 3 day week so thats great. Hope you all have a great week! I know I will!!

Adventure Time // Liverpool Fire Arts Festival (picture heavy)

The other weekend me and T went to see our friend Ben perform in the Liverpool Fire Arts Festival that he organised. I work with Ben so it was great to see something that I'd heard so much about. It was freakin awesome! So many cool people there and so much stuff to do. There were workshops through out the day which you could take part in like, Ariel acrobatics and slack lining. We showed up later on in the day so I didn't get to have a go on anything, so next time I'm definitely gonna try everything! So here are the pictures of the evening, Im still amazed by how good this whole evening was. I would love to have a go at this, but theres no way, with my co-ordination, I wouldn't end up seriously harming myself and everyone else around me haha! But I was really envious of everyone and how amazing this hobby is. I think my favourite was the fire fan things, I think they looked so beautiful and almost like fiery wings.

What Are You Afraid Of
Cockroaches. Those creepy little shits just don't die and they're disgusting and scuttle about and swarm and just BLUUUGH! I'm getting itchy skin just writing about them! When I was a kid I had a horrible nightmare that I was stuck to the ground and I couldn't move at all. Then these cockroaches came from no where and just swarmed all over me and I couldn't do a thing about it, I managed to wake my self up but when I sat up I could still see them all over me and I proper freaked! I've hated them ever since. They are so horrible! the creepy hairy legs and the fact that they can FLY!?! Why? why can they fly?!

My friend (who knew that I was terrified of them!) used to keep exotic pets like snakes and things, which is cool, and I love pretty much every other kind of bug, animal and living thing, but he told me he a new pet and to close my eyes, so I did. He proceeded to place two effing massive hissing cockroaches in front of me and I freaked. out. I'm not kidding these things were the size of my hand and when you touched them they hissed. It was gross. Also, when I was on holiday in Tenerife one ran over my foot while I was walking down the street. And my dad came home once with present from the Natural History Museum (of course I was excited!) turns out it was a cockroach in resin. I threw it at him. They're just wrong. They have no purpose, and they should all be exterminated. I cant even write anymore about them because I feel dirty and creepy just thinking about why I hate them, so I leave it at that.

It feels like forever since I last posted. It's been so super duper hectic the last few weeks, I feel like all I've done is sleep and work. Hopefully over the next week or two things will start to ease off and I can start to blog more, and make posts a little more interesting!

Peace out

Your Favourite Quote

This is such a hard one! I literally cant pick one. I had a look through my pinterest 'Words' board and I couldn't pick one out, but the over-all feel of most of them was 'be yourself and don't let anyone else get in your way' so I thought id pick a few of my favourites out and share them with you. I love any kind of quote/lyric thats about loving yourself, doing what you want to do and not letting anyone stand in your way, even if that someone is yourself. I think its so important to do what you want to do and be happy always. This life is way too short to spend it on 'what if's' and worrying about what others will think, or thinking your not good enough. I say just go for it, what ever it is, just do it and if you fail then you fail, at least you tried. I would hate to get to the end of my life and think 'if only id tried more things, said yes a few more times and not worried what others would think' that would be the saddest thing for me, or for anyone I care about to say. I have to say it to myself regularly. I need a million of these kinds of quotes everywhere in my house and in places I randomly see because I am the worst for not doing things and thinking I'm not good enough, but when I do go for it and just say 'what the hell, theres nothing to loose' I have never regretted it! I love the feeling that you get when you decided to do something that your scared to do. The nervous excited happiness that you get from not knowing but also not caring. It's like Bilbo always says 'Its dangerous business going out your front door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, theres no telling where you might be swept off too.'


Do you have a favourite quote? or like me do you have a million that you cant choose one? Let me know bellow and maybe ill add a few more to my already huge library of quotes.
