    Realisations Whilst Binging Friends on Netflix

    Friends was a huge part of my childhood. Watching endless repeats on E4 was pretty much how I spent every evening after school. With Friends hitting Netflix last month, everyone was pumped to relive that portion of their childhood, and I was definitely excited to be part of it. Since rewatching Friends (which I have just finished), I realised a few things. Some are lessons, some are fun realisations and some are just points I’d never put down on paper before.

    Blog At The Beach, January 2018

    Blog At The Beach | Essential Twenty

    Last weekend I took my monthly trip to Yorkshire. But instead of spending the weekend with Jack, I took the regular journey to Leeds for the IceLolly.com Blog At The Beach Event. I actually went to a similar last summer and came out so inspired that my blog took a new turn over the the following months. Well this time, I’m writing about my new found inspiration, what I learnt and where I’m hoping my blog will go from here.

    Happy New Year! It’s 2018 and I’m kicking blogging off with a bang. Every year I say that I’m going to get my bum in gear and get organised, and every year it lasts just a couple of weeks. Well in 2018 I’m turning 24, my lucky number, which means it’s the year I officially adult. I’m getting everything in order, and during the back end of 2017 I picked up a few bits to help me with the mammoth task of getting my life organised.

    My Christmas Movie Advent Calendar

    Christmas Movie Advent | Essential Twenty

    Around September time, I said to myself I wanted to a watch a Christmas film every day in December. A very easy challenge for myself. When Christmas 24 launched, I couldn’t  actually wait until December so I have watched more than this, but since a sick day at the back end of November meant I started my Christmas movie watch a few days early. But this was okay since I had a few days out meaning I was too busy to watch. Continue reading
