FAMILY IS FOREVER, LIFE IS NOT

My cinema trip this afternoon was so well deserved with some popcorn and a beautiful friend. I watched COCO and must i say, you have to go see it! It’s a Disney, fun, loving family movie and i would so recommend just taking some time out of your busy schedule to go see it. I know some of you are probably thinking, ‘why would i go and watch a Disney movie’, but i came out of the cinema so happy that i physically can’t describe to you how amazing that movie made me feel. When you watch this film, you will just start thinking about how amazing and important family is to you, even when they are not on your side or don’t agree with half of the decisions you make in life, deep down they will always love you. No matter what, family will always be there to listen. The movie touches on the topic of idolising. When you religiously admire other people’s lifestyle and you really believe that this could be the path for you aswell but ideally you may have a similar career but everyone has their own path and journey, you will never have what another has. We have our own amazing life, but we never see it. The person you are fantasising over isn’t generally happy or having the best life (they might be, but in their eyes, they want more aswell). It’s a vicious circle. How ever shit (excuse my language) you think your life is or however boring you think your life is, it is NOT, someone else you don’t know is admiring your lifestyle. Everyone has an amazing life and family around to support them and if you really don’t, there is always someone you can call upon to help you, but you are the only person who can make your life the life you want. Just enjoy every day you get to live

I was moved this week by a beautiful lady ‘Holly Butcher’, who posted an amazing message for the world to see before she passed away. She just put life right in front of my eyes and reminded me to enjoy every second loving and living the life i want. It is one of the most inspiring letters i have ever read. RIP XOXO

Here is the think to her post.

Day To Day Thinking

0178BA08-2CED-44BB-A83B-6BB4EE2D60C8

Train delays. You’ve been annoying.

TfL have been awful this week and the funny thing is, we can’t doing anything about it. We just have to accept that we will be late for work but i can always see the stress in everyone’s faces. Everyone who was on my tube is most likely to be late as-well, so technically we are never alone. I’m so happy I had 9 hours sleep some nights, also my body is dying from head to toe from the amazing routines I’ve learnt for the show this week. I always know when I can’t sit on the toilet seat with out holding on to something that i have worked hard. It’s been an intense week for me with rehearsals, I’ve been wearing my sports wear all week! Yesterday my anxiety was really high and when it is i always want to blame it on the contraceptive pill; that plays with our hormones; because we shouldn’t really be putting that into our bodies but we all do anyway, Ha! It’s so not good for our hormones (slight breakdown). I realised i just needed more food and more rest because my body needed fuel to keep me strong whilst working out more than it’s used to. So always remember that when you get emotional make sure you eat a massive meal, have some tea and sleep!!!! Please beauty queens, before you have a BREAKDOWN. Diva in the house.

I hate when i stress about little things in advance before the event has even happened or trying to work out a situation that isn’t even there. Why am i making up the worst scenario/Hollywood movie in my head, when nothing has even happened yet. I’m always planning on the worst stuff to happen. Why do i care so much, when nothing has even happened? I seem we all can tend to just make up situations in our head when that wasn’t exactly what happened, we over analyse every step and moment! I need to just leave it at where it is because in the end no one actually cares, only i do. Even my body, i was comparing myself to others all week, as most of us do as performers, we tend to always be looking for that ”dancer body’ or we assume we wont get hired for a job, that’s all rubbish! No one actually really cares about size, they just want to see our talent, but once we believe in ourself truly, they’re not even looking for that. Of course for performers it is casted our looks; that makes it harder for us; to make sure everyone looks good together as a company, but that’s not our issue to worry about and the next job will be round the corner.

Lets take a breath this weekend and forget our everything. Lets just live and eattttt!!!!


I ordered some moreeee clothes yesterday!!! Asos at its finest.

I’m so excited to get wearing these during my rehearsals, the snake-skin print leggings blend in with my skin tone and I’m soooo impressed with the quality of them. I’ve always loved a Bershka running leggings, I’ve had a pair for 2 year and they’ve lasted so long! The quality must be good to last as long as that! So excited to get dancing around in these. Who doesn’t love a print!?

Yes yes yes to black! If you don’t know what to wear, choose black! This is 100% a sexy number, if you are brave enough get this outfit on with some black skinny jeans. This outfit is for a night out to a date night with your loved one/friends. Always nice to change things up. I love a bell sleeve and an off shoulder!


Thank you for ready you crazy fun ladies!

Peaceful Evenings Are Amazing And Always Should Be

 

I’ve got the mood lighting on and the ‘Calm Vibes’ playlist on from Spotify playing. I love Spotify, it just has every genre of music i love. Music cures my heart! I’m sure it cures yours as well, i would 100% recommend Spotify if you don’t have it already. After a long but short day at work (week 2), I’ve now manage to eat; do some extra work bits at home; and now its time to settle the mind. I think its important in the evenings to clear any bad or negative energies that passed your way. Remind yourself It’s not worth it focusing your energies on the wrong thing. Will you care 5 months later? eh NO! I forget sometimes a long bath or shower; as soon as you get in; with music and candles can really calm/wind you down for the rest evening. I’ve still got a lush bath bomb i got as a gift from a lovely friend this christmas to use, so i think its smart this weekend to try one out for the first time. They look amazing, but i do find that lush fragrances are a little too strong for me. I prefer a warm, soft, vanilla fresh and camomile fragrances. They do say taking a bath does pull you out of the world and gives you that personal space you always try to catch from our hectic lives. So try bathing more often, i do prefer showers but I’m going to try bathing more. Get those candles burning, they naturally represent life and if you actually watch a candle it shows you how simple life works and how calm we can just be. But still powerful to touch.

img_0131I love to read and i would always recommend people to find styles of books that suit them or would make them want to read more. I’ve just received this book from a friend called ‘How To Be Calm’ by Anna Barnes. It’s full of colourful, bright and warm pages that instantly make smile. The book is full of fun quotes and ideas about keeping yourself calm and letting go of your anxiety. Most of the ideas you probably know already, but a reminder is always helpful. Some of her suggestions relate to normal things we do in the day, but I didn’t really realise little things we naturally do can actually be so calming and relaxing. At times i like to read motivational books but i do find it gets my brain thinking too much when i want to wind down so this book is perfect. I love thriller and romance books as-well, i might pick up a fashion book next week actually! Switch it up.

Anna Barnes has a collection of beautiful quick mind reads, pick one up or purchase online when you have time.
