The 24 Feel Good Girls Night Movies You Need To Watch

Image
Feeling good is something I tell everyone to follow and allow without resistance. We all have the right to be loved and feel pleasure which reflects in the wold as a much better place. If feeling good to you is getting cosy with an abundance of cushions and blankets, a hot beverage and maybe a salty snack this blog is very much for you.


I don't know a single person who doesn't enjoy getting swept into a story that transports you into a different dimension (just as long as you're not running away but rather running to). For me a good movie calls me to come back again soon and will leave me gooey centered and giddy for the next few days. It will have elements of happiness and sometimes sadness, definitely humor and stupidity but most of all is grounded in genuine connections and relationships.

This is the list of movies that have begged me back to them for many reasons many times. Leave me a comment what your go-to feel good flicks are and why? I'm always curious to know wh…

Compromise

Image
We've all heard that compromise makes for long standing, solid relationships and sure, I think compromise is a tool that can be used when a snap decision has to be made but will carry no long term affects. Compromise however is not to be used in conjunction with personal needs.

A compromise is choosing to have a bagel because its closer to your house even though you really want that doughnut on the other side of town but can't be bothered to put in the man power to get it. That's an understandable compromise even though I'll always tell you to go get the doughnut. The affect isn't major, you are still having something that you enjoy (a bagel) and you know that you'll have the doughnut sometime soon.
The common misconception of compromising is when you talk yourself out off having the doughnut or bagel all together and into choosing a salad because you tell yourself the salad is better for you. You still really want the doughnut but you won't even let yourself…

Hate Or Resentment?

Image
Complete disclosure: the past five weeks of my life have been chaotic and filled with lot's of emotional pain. I lost touch with myself and what made me happy and focused too much on what didn't.On the surface I was angry and wanted to be somewhat vocally violent at people that were triggering me. It wasn't hatred or personal and I definitely wasn't going to act on my very irrational unplanned acts of romanticised violence but these feelings just didn't seem to be subsiding and it was affecting my relationships, well being and mental health. I don't think I have ever been so actively angry in my daily life ever and can now gladly say the storm has passed. 


Just like my passion of solving the Broadchurch mysteries I needed to get to the root of these feelings because I didn't want to live this way for another day.
Key word: RESENT
The weight that lifted when this word came to me mid diary scribble was immense, like I had been carrying around all my anger in the…

What Fatigue Is Trying To Tell You

Image
My goodness this feels good to back and typing away. I apologise for my sudden departure with little to no explanation but I *hope* I am back for regular posting! My weeks have been completely swallowed by my most recent endeavor; I am currently in the process of gaining my certificates in fitness! I've been on the fitness train for a little while now so getting to a position where I'm going to be considered a 'fitness professional' is a little bit cool.
I am required to attend Tafe four full days a week and for a girl who hasn't lived on a school schedule for a solid 7 years it has been intense and fatigue has slapped me in the face. By the end of every week I have been moody and depleted of any kind of emotional nutrients so writing a blog has been something I've been happy to place in the backseat (only till I get my things back in order!).
Since I am currently dealing with end-of-week fatigue and I know a lot of people are too I thought we'd touch on that…

Long Distance Relationships

Image
Long distance relationships will only succeed if both parties want to be there and have an equal accord of commitment and understanding. I am a firm believer in making long distance relationships work as I've done so before and continue to do. As much as it can be the biggest pain in the neck it's also created strong bonds I wouldn't have otherwise.
The best place to start when 'defining' a LDR is accepting that your relationship is as valid as any. Whether you knew someone and they moved away or you met via the internet, the physicality of a relationship is such a minor detail and others should never make you feel uncomfortable about it lacking. I know I've personally felt this way before but now I couldn't care less what others think, love is love baby.
Toxic relationships, long distance or not, are filled with paranoia, suspicion, doubt, skepticism, invasive questioning etc. If you or your other half is showing any if these signs it's probably wise you…

Slump No More

Image
I've had my fair share of inspiration droughts in my lifetime and we all agree they're not the most desired of circumstances to be in, nobody likes them. But, just because the iron is not hot for you to strike does not mean that it will never be again. Maybe you're being asked to plant seeds elsewhere...I am an absolute creative at heart, my mind concocts mad schemes and plans and my heart feels their pulse and squeals when they come to life. Every phase of your endeavors, every time you swing from one end of the pendulum to other, is a necessary step in your own personal evolution. Acceptance is what makes this process kinder.
The term 'creative block' to me is a funny one as I see people use it more as an excuse, separating themselves from the energy form that is pottery or makeup or knitting when there is nothing you are not, especially creativity. Creativity flows and will always, it's your choice to be receptive and allowing or not. 
It's extremely easy …

My January 2019 Playlist

Image
Everyday for me is filled with bouquets of music, newly discovered or vintage sounds that still bless the sound waves. January produced hot muggy summer days, anticipation for my trip to come and as always a killer soundtrack that sparked curiosity and experimentation.I constantly have my headphones on digging though the internet looking for and basking in all sorts of fabulous music so I thought I'd share my 'on repeats' for the month of January. 


This month was thick and overflowing with new and old 80's/indie/rock/UK/pop vibrations. Not only has been listening to this type of music been an absolute pleasure I've also learnt a great deal that I am trying to transfer over into my own writing and sound.
Rather than listing all of the songs and summarising them one by one I decided to load them onto a Spotify playlist that you can listen to at your own leisure. You can find that HERE
If I can tell you to keep an eye on one artist on this playlist it would be lovely Mag…
