NATIONAL CHOCOLATE CAKE DAY

I’ve done this completely backwards it seems, as today is National Chocolate Cake Day, and just last week, was National Pie Day….on National Pie Day I had chocolate cake, and ON NATIONAL CHOCOLATE DAY, I had Cottage PIE.

Everyone, I think I deserve a slap to the face. I AM A DISGRACE.

As a punishment, I’ve just looked at a picture of a chocolate cake, and now I really really crave one, and I can’t even have one because it’s too late to go to the shops and they’ve probably all sold out.

THIS IS JUST LIKE THE LEMON MERINGUE PIE SITUATION AGAIN (and yes that’s right IT’s A GOD DARNED PIE).

yum

**Picture not mine, credit goes to recipeblogs (I think??)**

Just look at it, look at that cake and tell me it’s not screaming out to be eaten. Appreciate its icing, and cakey goodness.

I don’t know why I do this to myself.

Anyway bromigo’s, tomorrow is vlog day featuring a special performance from someone (You’ll understand tomorrow, by the title alone), as well as a location scout with another friend. And I’ve got footage to edit to give you all my first ‘short’ or rather ‘music video’ of 2016.

I just have to figure out adobe premiere pro cc 2015 first…

Hope you’re all having fantastic days.

And remember, YOU’RE AMAZING!

 

Take The Day Off!

Call in work/school RIGHT now and tell them you’re not going in because I said so.

I kid. That would be irresponsible and downright socially unacceptable.

What do I mean then when I say ‘Take The Day Off’?

I mean that all work and no play makes Jack a very dull boy – that’s the saying right? Idek. But that’s the one that keeps popping into my head.

Did you know that having regular breaks, and a good balance of work/play ethic is actually healthy? Too much of one or the other can affect your health – mentally and physically.

So after work tonight or college or school, put your feet up. Treat yourself. Have a nice bubble bath, eat some chocolate, pig out on Dorito’s, order a pizza, and just chillax. I can guarantee that the break will help you clear your head, and when you do get back to work then you’ll be ready and open to new ideas. Make sure your brain knows when it’s in ‘work’ mode and ‘break’ mode, the difference can help with the balancing act that is life.

Thus concludes my advice for today. Hope you’re still enjoying my content bromigo’s, and thank you for all of your comments so far! I appreciate each and every single one of them, and reply to them as much as I can :). Happy Tuesday!

Monday Motivation || Moody Monday

Happy Monday guys!!

As we all know it is Motivational Monday (or Monday Motivation) whatever you want to call it. And today I woke up super duper moody. So really, for me, Moody Monday is a little more relevant.

It wasn’t until I realised that I’ve been grumping about everything all day, that I realised “You’re being hella negative today Sophie.”

And it got me thinking.

Negativity is something that can become a real nasty habit. Yes, a habit because that’s exactly what it is. I find that once I start I can’t stop, I’ll spend the rest of the day moaning or complaining and then wonder why I’m in such a bad mood?

Well I can tell myself this, the reason I’m in a bad mood, is because I haven’t said one positive thing all day.

So here goes, positivity:

  • My makeup is pretty on point today.
  • I’ve done 4 1/2 hours worth of college work today – GO ME! YAY!
  • I managed to get help from a friend with Photoshop. Woo!
  • Mum went shopping so now we have a house full of food and I can raid the cupboards anytime I like.

Already I feel a lot lighter. You should try it bromigo’s if you’re having a Moody Monday.

Now I’m going to write some more content for you guys, plan thursdays vlog, and…

Sunday Rambles #4 – Fan-Girl Denial

Happy Sunday folks!

Rambles #4 kinda happened yesterday didn’t it? And the day before that…and the day before that. But you guys seem to be liking this, so I’m just gonna roll with it.

So this past week I’ve been doing some thinking about fan-girls, and fandoms in general. And it came to my attention that I hated being branded as a fan-girl.

Wait a minute.

That may sound straight up rude and weird, but just work with me here.

Why did I hate it? Because most of the time when you say “ugh I’m such a fan-girl” to a complete stranger, or someone who has no passion for TV Shows, they just look at you like you’re a lunatic, and make you feel like it’s something to be embarrassed about. Then naturally, in response, I’d flush a dark red and just sort of cough it out as if my words were never said and I was momentarily possessed to say it.

For a long time this would continue, and I’d hate branding myself as a fan-girl. I’d used to be like “yeah I love the show Supernatural, don’t get me wrong. I go to conventions. But I’m not a huge fan-girl of it” (LOL).

I used to surround myself with those people that would frown upon fan-girlism (is that a thing?) at an attempt to feel “accepted”, or “normal”. When in actuality I was already “normal”, as normal as I can be. And who wants to be normal anyway? Normal’s boring.

Being a fan-girl is something that’s fun, and keeps the passion flaring to do creative art, writing, or vlogs. Is that a bad thing? No. Is that something I should be ashamed/embarrassed about? No.

Fan-girling is fun, and reminds the world that there are good things out there. So yeah. No more shall I brand myself as someone who isn’t a fan-girl, I’m a huge fan-girl, loud and proud. Praise it! And if you’re a fan-girl (or guy) too sing it to the top of the roof.

Okay that last sentence was cheesey, I’ma go now.

 

REMINDER

So today has been a bit of a whirlwind for me, well actually it’s been a bit of a strange WEEK. So I wanted to keep this blog post short and sweet, a gentle reminder as such. Because I’m pretty sure I did a blog on this a year ago.

Looking for a perfect way to gee yourself up? A way that you can feel more motivated and be in high spirits? Want this way to last about 4 minutes?

Easy. Just pick a song. And dance to it.

Like no, seriously, dance around in your room, look like an idiot to anyone else, but to you, YOU ROCK IT. Go with the song, FEEL the song. BE the song.

Okay so I won’t go that far into it.

But you get what I’m saying. I didn’t really want to do any work today, I sat at my desk and just sort of sighed. Then I put on this song (no judging please):

And I danced around and then sat down afterwards and got on with work as if nothing ever happened.

So I challenge YOU, to do the same today folks. DANCE LIKE NOBODY IS WATCHING.

 

Bored of Being a Girl

Do you ever get bored of being a girl? It’s difficult – nails, hair, whatever. And all the products are pink, and girly and flowers and butterflies. I’m a chick, but what if I want a race car themed kitchen???

I’m such a child shh.

But seriously, one thing that’s been bugging me is how gender stereotypical everything is. From a young age we’re brought up to believe that pink is for girls, and blue is for boys. And until very recently that’s the way its always been.

Now? Now guys like to wear girls clothes, and girls like to shop in the mens section because their shirts are hella awesome. Just FYI.

Do you ever just get tired of walking around a women’s clothing store and seeing the same strappy dress that was in fashion last year, but wait they’ve changed a small detail so that makes it different???

Maybe it’s just me, but I kinda just get bored of it. It makes me want to search for whacky clothes that no-one else knows about, like printed leggings that have this massive wild crazy design on them that will make people think “what the hell is she wearing?” Something completely unconventional.

And why shouldn’t we? What, just because we’re a girl we have to wear winged eyeliner, a face full of foundation, a dress with a cardigan and heels,  have painted nails and perfect hair? No. I’m a girl, and I like my jeans, and tops, and leather jackets.

I guess this comes down to a point that I’ve been trying to make for a while now. Don’t give a f*** about what people think. Dress how you wanna dress, shop in the men’s section, shop in whatever section you want, and just do it. Don’t get bored. And if you do get bored? Go out and get some hella whacky clothing, or something completely weird and original.

Thus concludes my advice for today. A slightly rambly one, but a blog post none-the-less. I’ve been going at this everyday since the 1st January, and I just want to take a moment to say thanks to every single reader, liker, commenter, and sharer that I’ve had. Your support means so much to me. I would now like your advice, do you think that I should continue doing daily blogs in february? OR should I slim them down and do three a week with a Sunday Rambles post for extra measure? Let me know in the comments below? I’d love your input! 

Until next time, catch ya later bromigo’s!

My Five Favourite SPN FanVids

It’s no secret that I love the TV Show that is CW’s Supernatural, it’s not secret at all. And sometimes when I’m feeling a little bit ‘meh’ or uninspired I turn to the fandom and their creations. More specifically Supernatural fan videos. The amount of effort and editing that goes into them, and the amazing content produced by it always inspires me to get off my butt, create something that makes people feel that amazing, that inspired. Which is why I’m writing this now, to help inspire you, and also maybe show you how incredible these creations really are.
