Disney | My Favourite Disney Soundtracks/Scores

Hi blog friends!!

It may not surprise you that I am a huge fan of film soundtracks and scores (I even wrote a post on it here!!) being a media graduate. 
There is something really comforting about listening to songs (with or without lyrics) that remind you of your favourite film or even transport you into your favourite film (the HP soundtrack is great for this!).

So, I'm sat here in my Mickey Mouse pyjamas listening to the Moana soundtrack, thinking to myself is there anything better than a Disney soundtrack?! Answer: no! 
Disney have an incredible knack for producing some of the most upbeat/memorable/heart wrenching/incredible soundtracks and scores well, ever!
So I thought I'd share with you my favourite Disney soundtracks!

Beauty & the Beast (surprise surprise!)

Not only are all the songs AHmazing, but the score is also beautiful. Randomly my favourite song from BatB is The Mob Song (yep the one where they're singing about killing the Beast yep that one! Don't ask it's just damn catchy okay). I remember watching BatB for the first time and getting the biggest goosebumps when Belle starts singing (okay fine I still get goosebumps). This soundtrack is beyond iconic I mean point me to someone who doesn't know Beauty and the Beast (the song!).

The Lion King 2

The Lion King 2 is a highly under appreciated film in my view. I mean Kovu, come on!!! But this film actually has my all time favourite Disney song in it, We Are One. Whenever I listen to it I proper belt it out because I love it so much. Also big shout outs go to Upendi and He Lives in You, which I didn't know was in the stage version of the Lion King and when they started singing it I definitely had a little cry but oh my GOSH it sounded absolutely incredible (also love that they gave a little shout out to the second film!)

Mary Poppins

Mary Poppins is an absolute classic and the songs are even more legendary (especially because they meant so much to Walt! Shout out to those genius Sherman brothers). I love listening to the soundtrack because it just reminds me of being young and watching this A LOT. 
Come on I mean who doesn't love a bit of Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke singing supercalifragilisticexpialidocious to cheer them up!

Honourable mentions go out to: Tangled, Moana, Brave, Mulan & Hercules!
What are your favourite Disney or film soundtracks?!

Lots of love

Life | Hi...Again & 2017 Goals!

Hi blog friends!!

Now I know what you're thinking, wait you used to blog right? Yep that's me! It has been a LONG time since I have posted on here and I'm really sad about that! I went through a patch where I just didn't want to write, I didn't want to take pictures, I didn't want to promote my blog...it was just a pretty rubbish time. But you know what they say new year, new found love for blogging!

Since 2016 was all round rubbish (I mean that is a sweeping statement, go you if your 2016 was fab! Okay that sounded patronising it's not, oh god okay I digress), back to the point since 2016 was pants, so I want to make 2017 (in the least cliche way ever) my year. I am determined to set a list of goals and stick to them, and I'm not talking new years resolutions because lets face it, we all break them in about 2 days. I'm talking a list of achievable goals either big or small that I want to accomplish this year, and what better way to make me stick to them than by writing them on the internet for everyone to see! So here we go, these are my 2017 goalz!

1. I want to be a year pull free. 

(If you haven't read my blog before or just didn't know in general, I suffer from a form of OCD called Trichotillomania where I pull out my hair. I'm looking into signing up to one of the Trich help websites where you can find a 'buddy' who can help you through trying to stop, so far I am on day 3 of no pulling!)

2. I want to apply for the Disney CRP (Cultural Representative Program) even if i have 0 chance of getting in, I want to try!

3. (cliche warning) I want to join the gym and stick to it!

4. Pass my driving test

5. Join the local netball team and make some friends

6. I want to get better at eye make up and perfect putting false eyelashes on (WHY IS IT SO HARD!?)

7. To drink more water!

8. I want to blog at LEAST twice a week, if not more! I also want to blog even more about Disney so get ready for that.

9. Go to the 25th Anniversary of Disneyland Paris

10. Learn to love myself

What are your 2017 goals? Id love to hear!
So I'm really hoping this writing inspo isn't just a one off and that you'll see a lot more of me. 
I am really hoping to stick to my new blogging schedule (but working full time does kinda f that up sometimes) so we'll have to wait and see!

Happy 2017 my lovelies!!

Lots of love
