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.

 

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!

WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?! – Sunday Rambles #3

Recently I’ve been having sort of a lapse, with, well everything. And motivating myself has been a challenge. The most motivation I’ve managed to muster up is to lose myself in the internet and watch almost every single cosplay video out there whilst thinking how they achieved this, with how many people, and ahhgkrjljrld everywhere.

Even this blog post is slaying me right now.

I’m questioning everything I’m doing, including these blogs and college work and vlogs. Not questioning them as in ‘do I really want to be doing this?’, but as in ‘That’s a crap idea, no-one’s going to want to like that’.

SO IT’S TIME TO TAKE A STEP BACK.

I did some meditation today, which involved inhaling a candle that smelt like Margarita. hmmm. (Wow why did I just type that). And I think it’s helped to clear my head a little. I need to step back to basics, and just go with the flow. I’m starting to get too caught up on what people will think about things that I publish, and really I need to stop giving a flying f***.

But I guess we can all be guilty of that right? We get too wrapped up in people’s opinions and then just end up sitting there numb because we’re worried that we’ll make the wrong move.

I can’t remember where I read it, but I remember the quote, it was from someone quite well known, he basically said that all his life his father was always too scared to make a decision so he played it safe, he kept the job that he hated because it got him regular income and it felt secure, a couple years down the line the company had to let him go, he lost his job and he lost money and that feeling of being secure. So it just goes to show that even when you play it safe things can go wrong, and if there’s an equal chance that things can go wrong when taking a risk, then why not take a risk and think screw it?

Don’t give a crap what people think. There’s always going to be someone out there who will laugh at you, or not like you, or think what you’re doing is stupid. Don’t focus on them. Focus on you. What you want. What makes you happy.

Thanks for reading bromigo’s, and thanks for being a listening ear.

 

HOW HAVE I ONLY JUST DISCOVERED HALSEY!?

I don’t even remember how I discovered her???? All I remember is one minute I remember seeing her name on twitter everywhere, and then the next, I’m listening to her albums non-stop.

How did I discover Halsey? Now that I don’t know the answer to that, it’s kind of freaking me out a little.

It was probably a Supernatural fan-vid.

MOVING ON

I am a Halsey addict. Yep. Her music is incredible and nothing you can tell me can convince me otherwise. I’ve even listened to her live album on Spotify, and it’s more awesome than the studio recorded stuff. She has the voice of an angel!

What’s my top songs, I hear you ask? Well. I’ll list them for you. Although they’re going to be numbered, this is in no particular order whatsoever.

1. Control

2. Drive

3. Gasoline

4. Young God

5. Hold Me Down

6. New Americana

7. Walk The Line

There’s so many more awesome songs out there, but these ones in particular I’m addicted too. Someone told me that they thought her music was “samey” and I had to agree with them, but that’s one of the reasons I love her music so damn much! The mood never changes, it’s a CD full of the same atmosphere, which is brilliant if you’re a writer, because you can have the whole album on repeat instead of the same one song over and over again.

What do you guys think? Yay? Nay?
