The Festival Tag

Saturday, 12 August 2017

I recently stumbled upon this tag whilst watching some videos on youtube, it was created by the lovely ZoeLondon, and I thought "this is the perfect tag for me". Anyone who knows me knows how much I love music and how much I literally live for music festivals. Music is my biggest passion in life and I can truly be myself and 'let go' as such at festivals. There's nothing I love more than being in a field with my friends seeing our favourite bands.

1. What was the last festival you went to?
The last festival I went to was Latitude festival to see The 1975 but also got to see The Horrors, The Coral, and Mystery Jets. It was my 3rd of this year, I've also attended Parklife and TRNSMT this year.

2. What was the first festival you went to?

My first festival was good old Leeds! I went in 2013 and it was an amazing first experience, so much so I'm back this year for my 5th year in a row! Each year I go I feel like I've returned home, it's strange but it's a really nice feeling. 

3. Have you ever travelled abroad for a festival?

No I haven't. Yet. I've definitely thought about it though, maybe in the near future.

June Favourites 2017

Tuesday, 11 July 2017

Hi everyone! I'm back with another monthly favourites as you may have noticed I didn't bother with one last month and that's mainly because most of my May favourites were things I'd mentioned in April. I can't get my head around the fact we're now into July, where's the year gone?! It's frightening. Anyway, as usual I've picked a few of the items I've been loving in the last month so let's get on with it shall we?

Get to Know Me: Deep Edition.

Thursday, 22 June 2017

I've gone through a few major things in my life as of late and I'm back on my journey of finding myself and my purpose in life. I've done a lot of deep thinking and found this quiz as I was blog hopping so in turn have put some of my deep thoughts in to this post. I guess I'm letting you in to my soul as such and allowing you all to have a nosey. 

1. What’s your philosophy in life?
I try to live my life by the serenity prayer. I'll quote it. "God grant me the serenity to accept the things I can't change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference." 

2. What’s the one thing you would like to change about yourself?
How insecure I can be and my inability to accept a compliment. I flit in-between being comfortable in myself to hating every inch and wishing I could afford plastic surgery to change everything. I was bullied really badly in primary school all the way up until year 9 in seniors and I was mentally abused by two of my ex boyfriends. I've had it drummed in to me most of my life that I'm fat, ugly, and worthless. One of the ladies I work with said to me on Saturday "you're a bonny lass" and I genuinely thought she was taking the mick, I laughed when she said it. I guess it upsets me sometimes 'cause I truly believe people are messing with me, being sarcastic, or they've been set up to say it and I'm the punchline to their joke. It's awful. I don't believe anyone would genuinely compliment me and mean it, I'm so below average.

3. Are you religious or spiritual?
Not religious at all but definitely spiritual. I've grown up a lot in the last few years and view the world so differently now. I have so much love and appreciation for this planet, nature is a truly wonderful and amazing thing. I now appreciate where I live and realise how lucky I am to live so close to the seaside. I'm still learning to love myself, but I've come a long way from where I used to be despite the answer to the previous question. I've learned that if I don't love myself I can't expect anyone else to do so. I've stopped giving people the power to hurt me and I no longer allow insignificant things to upset me. I've learned to let kindness guide me in the things I do and understand that everything comes back around, so to receive positive vibes and good karma it must radiate from you. I try not to retaliate to negative people and I don't let them drag me down, I rise above it. I've learned to cut out all toxic people from my life whether they be friends or family, toxic people aren't beneficial to my life and I won't entertain them. I can't be bothered with people who think they're a victim to life and that their negative experiences give them an excuse to be a bad person. We all create our own destiny and every bad experience is a life lesson. Get up, dust yourself off, and move on making the most of life.
