Yesterday, I popped my MCM Comic Con London cherry by attending for the first time with Ali and, OH MY DAYS, it is an experience that is stuck in every bone and muscle you own for days afterwards. I’d heard so much about this particular fan convention and, after attending the Manchester convention three years ago, I knew I needed to see what the biggest UK convention was like. If you’re thinking about attending one of the local conventions scattered around the UK, then I’m going to give you some things to think about to prepare you for the mayhem that is MCM Comic Con!
One of the misconceptions for people is that blogging involves just sitting down, writing a post and publishing it. It’s so much more than that. It’s difficult at the best of times to come up with post ideas that are both fun, original and others can relate to enough to comment. This is doubled when you’re struggling with a mental health illness. All of the thoughts that go through your head about no-one caring about your blog and how your follower count will never go up are intensified. With all that going on, there is no chance that you’ll be able to write a post today, tomorrow or even a month down the line.
Don’t worry though…you can still carry on blogging without writing a single post.
Alright…who else is going to expose their age and admit to seeing the original Beauty and The Beast film back in 1991? I may have only been 4 years old, but this was my first ever Disney film and, seeing it at this age, made Belle even more of a princess to me. It’s why she has such a special place in my heart along with the Beast, Mr Potts and Chip! When I heard there was going to be a Beauty and the Beast live-action film, I was a little apprehensive because I’d seen some live-actions and they were terrible. However, I did love Emma Watson and she is French so I thought I’d allow myself to get excited for this film.
Today, the first ever teaser trailer came out for it and I thought I’d share my first impressions of it with you so we can compare and fangirl/boy together!!
Regardless of what the weather is like in the UK right now, it’s still Spring for me (even if it’s raining and had hailstones during it!). Think back a few months and you might remember that I did a gift guide for the women in your life! I had the pleasure of being sent some stunning flowers from the company Bloom & Wild who are crazy talented! Flowers you can have put through the letterbox!! How fun is that?
Recently they got back in touch with me (it’s always a relief when a company wants to work with you again) and asked if I would like to take part in a blogger programme they were creating called the Wildflower Collective! I’m called Daisy, people! Clearly becoming part of a flower-inspired team was my calling! That said, I got my first bloom in the post the other day and I love it!!
One of the posts people seem to find really difficult to write has to be ones surrounding mental health. Believe me, I can totally understand why people struggle! You’re about to admit to the world a massive secret and you have zero clue whether your readers will be understanding or judge you. Whether you’re wanting to write a post or are too scared to, then hopefully these tips will help you write your mental health post.
It’s no secret that I’m a massive Luna Lovegood fan, but not only is she a brilliant character and has the most amazing fashion sense that I’m sure any fashion blogger would be jealous of, she speaks sense. Out of all the characters, she’s the one that really stands out with what she tells people. She’s not even pretending. She’s just telling others what she thinks and what they need to be told. I love that so much! She is definitely a teacher of life lessons! Here are my top 5 favourite quotes that she says in either the book/films!
Unless you live abroad right now, you might not know that the BBC is going through a bit of a tough time at the minute. Now…I don’t usually speak politics but this sentence will be the only one: our government is trying to control the BBC and how it works such as moving Strictly Come Dancing’s time slot to another so it ‘isn’t in competition’ with another big show on another channel, putting a subscription service on iPlayer and things like that. You can imagine how they might be a little angry at the minute. I’ve always been more of a BBC gal rather than any other channel and that’s why I wanted to thank the BBC!
We all know how unpredictable the British weather and our lives can be. One minute, we’re all sunny and happy and the next, we want nothing to do with anything. The only constant in our life, right now, is our internet. Whether it’s to binge-watch a series on Netflix or catch up with your favourite vloggers on Youtube. We all know that there are another bunch of people who can make us happy: bloggers! I thought to myself…what better way to cheer people up than to have a blogger night-in.
I was inspired by Fleur De Force’s video about new beauty products so, me being me, I wanted to put my own take on her idea and made this sort of post. Obviously I’m not as infamous so can’t have this products sent to me to talk (yet…one day!) so you’ll have to look at the pretty pictures on my graphic instead! I thought it would be fun to chat about some of the new fandom releases coming out every month that I wish I could buy/see!
I always look forward to different award seasons and the BAFTA TV Awards have gotten bigger and bigger each year! It’s become tradition every year to watch the live-stream on their Youtube and feel the award buzz even if I’m hundreds of miles up north from London. It’s even better when you spot your favourite actor on the red carpet as well as your favourite vlogger and blogger! It’s so cool! One year, I’m going to get myself there! Watch me!
I couldn’t let tonight go past without predicting my BAFTA TV Awards winners.
