Films to Watch in December

Christmas is coming by sooner and sooner, the time from sun rise to sun set is increasingly shorter and so I'm trying to make the most of it all the time. 
Not everything goes to plan obviously but once it does get dark there's something about the warmth of my bed or sofa and the Christmas lights on the tree that makes me want to just stay there, doing nothing with a mug of cherry and cinnamon tea in my hand. 
And what goes best with that? I say a good film to get you lost for a while...
Here's some films that I would watch this beautiful December!

Home alone!
Obviously! What a classic.. You know it's Christmas when you watch that with all your family on a Sunday night. It really brings that sprinkle of Christmas magic which will get everyone in the house happy and singing Carols. It's just perfect!

Yes! Yes! YES!
My favorite film! It's one of them films that you have to watch.. especially if you enjoy the classiness of the 60s! Also, if like me, you love Audrey Hepburn then you must watch it.. like now! :)

Let's go back to 2004!
Such a funny film, a must see on one of them nights when you just feel like having a laugh!
If you're not singing Jingle Bell Rock every time you see this film cover then you've not seen enough of them!

This is more for when you want to really get into the Christmas spirit.
Get your family around, light the fire, make some hot chocolate and enjoy because this film will take you on a journey, and remind you of what a beautiful time of the year it is!
There's not much I can say about this. Pure Christmas magic, especially if you have younger kids in the house... you need to watch it! But don't let little children be your only excuse to watch it ;)
This film, based on a true story will give you goosebumps and bring a tear to your eye.
It's really proof that Christmas time is the most magical time of the year!

Well here it is for now.. all my favorites summed up in one post.. I will enjoy watching them and so should you!
Give yourself a break at least once in a while... watch a film :)

See you xx 

Pun of the Post: Q-What do you call a can opener?
A- A can't opener 

I'm so sorry :'D

Getting into the Christmas Spirit

I don't know if you're as excited as I am but ahhhh!
 Christmas is almost here, it's so close that I can smell it.
I'm not sure why but in the past three years, I didn't like Christmas one bit, I felt no magic and to be honest it didn't even feel like Christmas, which is sad but this year it's all different as you can probably tell. I feel like a five year old, who's looking out the windows at night to see the first star on Christmas eve and Santa at night. 
I was preparing for Christmas time since November, which was when I started wearing Christmas socks almost every day, and drinking cherry and cinnamon tea, and let me tell you... The taste is so festive, every time you take a sip and close your eyes you see Santa with his reindeer's.
Maybe a little over exaggerated but you can imagine, it tastes pretty fabulous.
Every morning as I get ready, I play Christmas songs and that puts me in a good mood for the rest of the day. 
Many people, especially at my college, say things like "I don't get why you're so excited" or "Wow it happens every year, what's the great deal?"
The deal is that it only happens once a year, it brings families together AND you give and receive gifts!! and did I mention the good food? mmmmm :)

Today, I spent most of the day decorating the house with my step mum while singing along to Christmas songs. Definitely brought the magic into our house, we don't yet have our christmas tree up because we're going to do it together so it's a little more special!
Here's some pictures to show you how cute it looks so far!

I absolutely love it!
We have little apple and cinnamon air fresheners all around and it not only looks beautiful, it smells delicious too!

For now, see you!

London Trip

During late October this year, me and my best friend (Ron) decided we'll go visit London...
 For a week..
It was such an amazing experience, so much fun and we lived together for a week without wanting to kill each other, I think that's an achievement!
Although I have been to London before, and so has she, I don't think we've ever experienced it like that before. There's a few things I learnt about London that I didn't know before and it was so so fun visiting all the touristy places! Here's some pictures from out week away :)
 Art Galleries are so much fun!
(wearing: H&M Dress, TK Maxx boots, New Look Jacket, Primark Bag, H&M Rings)


This is only a few pictures but London is awesome but strange, I never thought I would ever be on a bus at 2am! I would have never thought that art galleries are so much fun and so nice!
I would never have thought that I would fall in love with a city!
So beautiful!

See you later :)

Dream a Little Dream...

Lately my dreams are much clearer plus I actually have them!
Seems like no biggie to you but to me it's a shock! I've not had many dreams in a long time and now that I do I can remember them so well it's unbelievable.. and scary at times!
So far I've had 3 very clear dreams over a short period of time, at most times I wake up confused, in tears or still thinking I'm in that dream.
I try to write them down as soon as I wake up but two of them were so confusing that I actually couldn't describe it in words, so there's probably not much point for me trying to describe something you wouldn't be able to understand hah. 
So I will tell you about the dream I had today..

So, I was walking down a road and through some bushes be he seemed to be pointing something at me, my eyesight wasn't great but just in case I hid behind some other bushes across the road. I see he's still pointing it at me so I start to run, he's running after me, I turn a corner and before I know it he's there, gun to my temple and I screamed "Why me? What have I done" he tells me to shut up and tells me that all teenagers are the same, he tells me about a hate tweet about him. I scream to him "but I wasn't me sir! I don't even use Twitter, all I want is to go home safely" he laughs to that and tells me he doesn't care, that we're all the same. He turns away to get a piece of paper out of somewhere and I decide to run. I run as fast as I can, keeping in mind how very out of shape I am, my throat hurts, I'm so out of breath. Then I hear him shout "oi bitch", I look behind and he's running after me, he's aiming his gun at me and he shoots a couple of shots. I'm not sure if I'm shot, I ache all over from running and regret that I haven't started jogging before. I go past an area of houses, knocking violently on every door while running away I scream "help" on the top of my lungs. I try running in zig zags so that I don't get shot, still screaming help.

 I see a man drive around the corner, he stops, I get in the car and scream go go go, he drives off fast and confused. He shouts "where now?!?" I scream back , in tears " i don't know, I don't know!" So he drives me to the hospital, confused and not knowing why, I go along with it... Maybe he thinks I need psychological help? Yeah I think so, must be that. We arrive at A&E, he helps me out the car, I thank him like 10 times and a nurse takes me away. I'm still shaking and I feel a sharp pain in my side, must be a stitch from all that running, I never ran so fast in my life. The nurse looks calms but moves fast, I try to tell her what's happened but he's not listening. I tell her to call the police, that he needs to be locked away, he's gonna kill other people but  the nurse reassures me that's everything is okay now. I'm on a wheelchair now, a doctor sees me as I shake uncontrollably, I'm still out of breath and I feel faint... He tells me to close my eyes, so I do... Probably a way of calming me down I think to myself. Then I feel a pinch in my arm, and by the time I opened my eyes, everything was blurry and I was falling asleep. I woke up in a hospital cloak, I hear my mum say it looks terrible, the doctor reassures her that it'll be okay.. I'm confused I try to get up but my side hurts so much that I can't. I look down and see a bandage, loads of blood on it and realize that I must have been shot, how have I not noticed? I press the wound and blood dribbles through the bandage, too much blood and I faint. 
This is when I woke up.

When I woke up, I felt like the dream was real life. Everything was so accurate, my poor fitness, my bad eyesight and my disgust to blood. I thought it was interesting once I looked back at it and read it through. Maybe, if I'll have anymore dreams I'll post them on here.. like a dream diary, that would be cool! 

Anyway, bye! :)

20 Things that make my life beautiful TAG

When you have a bad day or you're just  not feeling as great, think of them little things that make your life beautiful. Here are some of mine, just thinking about these things brings a smile to my face!

1.Waking up early in the morning.
The house is quiet because everyone is still asleep, it gives me some time to think and have just for myself, time where I can sit in silence and do nothing. Mornings are great and although I'm not a morning person, very early in the morning when the sun is rising is a beautiful time when time just seems to slow down.

2. The smell of coffee in the morning.
Say what you wish but I adore the smell of coffee, the smell of it just makes me a tiny bit more happy and the thought that I will drink it in a minute makes me even more cheerful.

3. Looking at happy people.
In a shop or on the street, everywhere because you just know that there has to be a source to this happiness.

4. My ipod.

Wherever I go, I take my ipod. It helps me to get out of awkward situations and just adds a little tune to whatever I'm doing. I often walk around with headphones in, imagining that I'm in a musical and that the people around me are joining in and dancing. I often sing along when I'm in a good mood and do a little dance every now and then. There should definitely be more people like this in the world as I know that when people see me sing and dance along with a huge smile on my face, it puts one on theirs too!

5. Travelling
That state of mind that there's nothing you can do to change what's going to happen at this very moment, you can't just get off a plane, train or bus. All you can do is relax and get your thoughts straight. Also the excitement that travelling brings, it all starts when I start packing my bags, I just love doing it and as soon as you're on that air port or wherever you feel like a little kid who just got a puppy... or is this just me? Haha

6.Cafes 
I like to sometimes go into a cafe on my own and sit there making notes or doodling in my notepad. The surrounding smell of coffee is the thing keeping me there, also the coziness of them and the way you can just observe life around you and not do anything but casually sip on a coffee or tea.

7.TV Shows/ Dramas
I particularly enjoy American Horror Story and Skins. Watching these is like forgetting about your own life and going into theirs, like a runaway from reality. (Warning: Not good when you have things to do e.g. revise for exams!)

8.Spending time with family
Although we have our ups and downs I think family time is so important and I treasure it a lot.

9.Planning future (hopefully) trips
with friends or on my own, in the country or abroad.. There's so many places I want to visit and I genuinely think that I'll make my dream come true one day. I want adventure because my town is really boring, no new places to discover, no new people to meet and most important of all no new inspirations and opportunities.

10.Trying and Learning New Things
There's nothing better than trying a new food which you surprisingly love! Or learning something and having this great feeling of achievement and success. 
11.My friends
They're honestly just as important as my family and the thought of living over 4 hours away from them when we're in uni scares me.

12.Jokes, even the unfunny ones!
I like telling them, laughing at them and laughing at peoples laughs.

13. Spontaneous evenings out with my friends
Garage and house parties and cute walks and just aww.

14. Having new things and new old things
new- like a magazine or book so neat and unbent and it's just nice knowing that it's all for you to find out what's inside.
old- boxes or books, you don't know where they could have been and the history they hold.

15.Warm Sunny Days
Nothing gets me more motivated to do things than warm sunny summer days. You can just smell the adventure.

16.New Socks
I really like socks for some reason and when I'm wearing new socks I know it will be a good day. The soft feeling you get on your feet is just lovely.

17.Ice Cream
It's my favorite food after all.

18. Tumblr 
well what can I say... I love it!
hint hint.. check my blog out toffii.tumblr.com

19.My Dogs

No matter what happens they're always so excited to see me and they love me and they're just so cute agh.

20.Reading
books, magazines,blog posts and stories- I love them all.

So here are my 20 things and how about you, what makes your life beautiful?
Sometimes it's the little things that we don't even notice make the real difference.
