Little Me Tag

I was tagged by the wonderful HakunaThatMatata to do a tag which she invented - the Little Me Tag. You post four photos of when you were younger, to share with others and as a little walk down memory lane.

Last year, my brother when to university, and I prepared a short goodbye video for him. This obviously had to include some of our baby photos, so I had a good root through our photo albums and found some of these gems. And this is also why all these photos are of my brother and I (I hope he won't mind!).

I was always in touch with fashion when I was younger. This photo is from a family holiday to Singapore, and I was clearly loving it.

These two photos tell one story - when I was grumpy, no beautiful waterfalls could get me out of it. I especially hated photos, which is way many of my childhood photos were starring my unhappy face. Eventually my parents just gave up, which is nicely demonstrated in photo #2.

Unlike now, I was not a fan of roller coasters or any ride. I love this photo as it shows this perfectly, and I wish there could have been a video of this moment!

I'm going to tag anyone who wants to do, to do this tag. It's a lot of fun and a great way to get to know some of your favourite bloggers. 

Have you looked through your childhood photos?

Amazing Covers | Let It Go/Let Her Go

If you remember this series, I applaud you.

A long time ago, I started a series called ‘Amazing Covers’, where I shared some incredible covers of popular songs I had found on YouTube. After the first few posts in this series, I stopped finding amazing covers and, to be honest, I forgot about the series.

But after a standard day exploring YouTube, I found one that impressed me so much, I had to show you guys. It’s a cover/mash-up of Let Her Go (by Passenger) and Let It Go (from Frozen) by Sam Tsui.

I think this cover is so original, catchy, and overall brilliant! Sam Tsui has done so many mash-ups, and with his voice and creativity, they’re all amazing. I almost love his cover more than the original songs - he is a musical. Definitely check him out, and tell me if you like any of his other covers. 

Have you found any amazing covers recently?

P.S. I'm thinking of making a logo for this series - any ideas?

As you are reading this post, I am about to embark on a school trip to the beautiful Morocco. So this post is more of a little update about this week's posts.

I have scheduled two posts for this week, one is an Amazing Covers and the other is a Little Me Tag originally by the wonderful HakunaThatMatata. They will be going up on the Wednesday 22nd and Sunday 26th.

I'm not expecting to have wifi available to tell you guys via twitter when my posts are going up and the link etc, so I'm trusting you guys with this information.

These two posts will be going up at 11am (British Summer Time).

Hope you like these two posts, and look forward to some amazing photos from Morocco at the beginning of next week!

What I Love About Autumn | 2014 Blogger Challenge

There are so many things that I love about Autumn, and I thought I would share some of these with you for this weeks #2014BloggerChallenge.

1) Wearing big, comfortable knitted jumpers
I love Autumn and Winter, merely because baggy clothes are my life. Snuggling up in a baggy jumper by a warm fire should be the definition of Autumn. 

2) The beautiful colours in the trees
I am a keen photography, and seeing the amazing red, orange and yellow leaves in the trees is a real treat. I love the atmosphere of Autumn!

3) Drinking some hot soup
What's better than drinking some hot tomato soup on a cold Autumn's night? Nothing, I know.

4) The cold, but not too cold weather
I don't know about you, but Autumn weather is actually perfect. It's not freezing, it's not warm, but it's just in the middle - which is the best for me. 

5) Hot chocolates
Following on from the hot soup, hot chocolate with whipped cream and marshmallows is a nice pre-meal drink. 

6) And it's Halloween!
I am a big fan of horror movies, so halloween is such a fun time for me!

What do you love about Autumn?

A Quote a Day #2

A simple quote, but probably one of the most important. I recently had a situation where I was having a mental block, and I thought I was going to give up, and someone told me this. 

Never give up - work through your problem, and you'll feel so much better on the other side.

What quote inspires you?

Bose Bluetooth Headphones | 2014 Blogger Challenge

For the 2014 Blogger Challenge, I am going to review my Bose AE2W Bluetooth Headphones.

I have been looking at headphones for a while, since my earphones broke and I couldn't find suitable ones to fit! So after a lot of research, I narrowed my choices down to a few of the best brands (in my opinion) for headphones. These were Bose, Sennheiser and Beats by Dr. Dre. While looking at these respective brands, I came across a completely new idea to me - Bluetooth headphones! This means that you don't need a wire to connect your headphones to your device.

Now as you can see in the photo, the headphones have a little gadget on the side which controls bluetooth. Now you do have to charge this, but it lasts for 10 hours and it only takes 2-3 hours to charge. When you first get the headphones, all you have to do is switch on the gadget and connect it to your device - and you're ready to go! After that it automatically connects. You can be up to 10m away from your device, and still hear your music as clear as ever!

It makes it so easy to listen to music on the go, without worrying about getting caught up in the wire. It is also good for gentle exercise, as I know how annoying wires can be when you're running! Although I do recommend getting sports earphones for vigorous sport, as the headphones themselves do get a little sweaty!

If you haven't charged your gadget, or don't feel like using bluetooth, there is an option to detach the gadget and insert a wire (which is included). I find this so useful, as it gives me both options that normal headphones wouldn't!

Lastly, the sound quality is so good and clear, and the volume has a very wide range . For me, the headphones are so comfortable and I wear them almost every day. They are quite expensive, but I really believe they are amazing purchase.

What has been your best purchase recently?
