**ANNOUNCEMENT**

Announcement Time

Hi guys, just a small announcement here.

In light of writing blog posts every day for 27 days, I’ve decided to cut back and experiment a little, see if it makes a difference with the content I give you guys, and if you like it more. From now on I’ll be posting Mondays, Wednesday’s, Friday’s, and Sunday’s. And of course the usual Thursday Vlog will be posted, with a blog post linked to the video to go with it.

Thank you so much to everyone that reads, likes, shares, and comments on my blogs and vlogs. It truly does mean a lot, and I hope I can keep providing great content for you.

From,

Sophie-L x.

Boy do I need this – Motivation Monday

Hey folks, how ya been?

So I’m aware that I haven’t posted anything since the 27th, and first off let me just give a huge apology to those of you that were expecting a post on this blog the last three days and didn’t get one. However the last three days I just needed a time out. Which I talked about previously a lot, before making this post.

What better a time to talk about this than on Motivation Monday?

Basically my mood kind of dipped, and I’ve been super paranoid about everything and everyone. So I just needed to take a step back, and focus on me for a few days. And said to myself “starting Monday, I’m going to BOSS this.”

So Sunday night, was unplanned and unexpected. After having a Skype chat and game with the Squad, I went to bed and just couldn’t sleep…again. When it came to Monday morning, I did not get up…until 2 hours after my bus was due. Quite obviously, I missed my bus. Which meant I had no transport to get into college without walking for 2 hours to get there, or using a service that overcharged and that I can’t afford.

I DIDN’T LET THAT STOP ME THOUGH.

With the true name of Motivation Monday in mind, I peeled myself out of my duvet and warmth, got some food, and got changed, then sat myself in the office (hence forth known as the ‘cave’) and have done 5 hours plus work on college. Which is MORE than what I would’ve done if I had actually gone to college.

The point of this blog post is, no matter what state of mind you’re in. It’s temporary. If you want to, and you work on it, you can pull yourself out of whatever slump you’re in. No matter how big or how small it is.

You got this.

 

 

 

 

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!

 

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…

Kick Monday's ass 💪 #MondayMotivation #MotivationMonday ••••• Image from seventeen.com

Hope you manage to kick its ass too!

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.

 

Lemon Meringue Pie Debate||National Pie Day

Happy National Pie Day!!!!

Dean pie

Yes that’s right, it’s national pie day, and I have failed in my duty to have any pie. I am so sorry bromigo’s. I tired, I really did but by the time I got to the shops, THEY HAD SOLD OUT OF LEMON MERINGUE PIE.

Now let me tell you a story,

as I’m writing this, I’m on skype with a friend. And they just announced to me that Lemon Meringue isn’t actually a PIE.

BACK.

THE HECK.

UP.

My argument is that it’s called a LEMON MERINGUE PIE. His argument is that you can’t call it a pie because it doesn’t have an upper crust or something (idek he doesn’t make sense).

Anywhoo, this has now become a big debate between us and our friends. So if you wanna jump in on the bandwagon and send us your thoughts, you can do.

Help us figure out this topic, and vote:

Apparently and I quote “Dean Winchester wouldn’t be caught eating Lemon Meringue Pie”.

EVEN THOUGH IT HAS PIE IN THE NAME?! HMMMMM?

Help us figure it out guys.

HELP US.

 

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.
