Monthly music faves are back (: i missed doing them last year as iv said before music is a big part of my life and it seems silly that i don't make it apart of my blog.
I have spent all of January listening to the greatest showman soundtrack although it was hard these are the 9 i have found myself listening to on repeat for at least a couple of hours a day.
My favourite song of the whole album has to be this is me loved it from the first time i heard it and loved it more after watching This. Keela Settle made Hugh Jackson Cry while singing this watch the video and you will fall in love with the song as well.
This was played at the end of Ncis last Friday and i fell in love with it thank you google for telling me who sang it. Its such a good song when your feeling down or feeling empowered.
P!nk has been a favourite of mine for years i love her early stuff as its more my style (if you ready my other monthly music faves then you know I'm a big fan of punk pop) but this album and this song are my faves from p!nk and the video is amazing it has Channing Tatum in need i say more ladies ??
Hope you enjoyed reading what iv been listening to this month (: Have you got any recommendations for me to listen to ?? you never know they may make February's Music Faves

Iv never done a roundup of my year before i normally just post my new year resolutions and that's it but iv been seeing quite a few people doing a roundup on snapchat and instagram and a few goodbye 2017 blogpost's so i thought id combine all that and write a blogpost.
I'll apologise now i lead a very boring life so in this round up no holidays or weekends away lol
I haven't got a kind word to say about January what started of as food poisoning turned in to either a viral infection or the sickness and diarrhoea bug which then turned in to the hacking cough safe to say by the end of January i was fed up of being ill and *touch wood* i don't get ill this January.
I turned another year older and had my annual birthday meal at Damon's with the family. Spent far to much money at meadowhall and basically celebrated my birthday for the whole month it was fantastic (:
Saw me and kirsty going to see Olly murs and having the best night if you'd like to see the vlog then click Here it was also the first time i had put someone other then me or Milo or Blake in a vlog which was a big deal for me.
Sheffield united finally after 6 years in league one they finally moved up to the championship very happy about the result and they have played well this year and show no signs of moving back to league one (Sorry to all you none football fans for this post) this was also the month i had horrific toothache that i moaned about on twitter (Again sorry for that to lol)
Nothing worth noting for may according to my facebook lol
This sexy album was released and it quickly became the only thing i played for about 3 months. I also third wheeled with kirsty and her boyfriend to see despicable me 3 which was a lot better then the trailer had lead me to believe.
After months of waiting for sky to start showing season 5 it finally came back on in July (:
Was good and bad i had way to many trips to Costa Taylor released look what you made me do I found alcohol free koppenburg which is amazing but i also didn't get the job at mothercare after the second interview which bummed me out for the rest of august.
My cousin turned 30 and i went for my first ever carvery it was amazing i bought a candle that makes me hungry everytime i light it i saw a rainbow and matalan was the first shop to have their Christmas stuff online which made me very festive indeed (:
I saw the best sunset that i think iv ever seen and yes that photo is unedited i bought another candle that didn't make me hungry when it was lit but didn't burn evenly so that made me annoyed lol. Ben and Jerry's finally brought the vegan ice cream to the uk and its amazing tastes exactly like normal ice cream and finally the new £10 came out and i didn't like them as they felt fake. (this is the content you came to read isn't it lol)
i had a interview at a supermarket little did i know that 2 weeks later i would get the message to say i got the job which i love (: 26th November saw me have my induction with others and the 29th saw me start my first shift oh and it was bonfire night (:
Work was busy i was doing a lot of overtime. I started blogmas but failed this year due to many things it was Christmas which meant Christmas dinner (:
This is my year round up hope you enjoyed reading it and i didn't bore you to much (:
Happy New Year x

To me a stocking filler is £15 and under i saw a ad for apple air pods and it said great stocking filler no Hun that's a main present at that price.
I love waking up to see my stocking (
The ones i have picked out for this post could be used as Secret Santa actual under the tree presents or as they are intended stocking fillers.
I watched itsemchannel earlier and saw that she had included bits from asda and not going to lie i would never of thought asda when looking at stocking fillers (and no I'm not copying her video i had this down for day 7 anyway)
This is the Link if you want to check out any of the other products i would love to list everything under £10 but id be here till Christmas. You can also order these online if your lazy like me and dont want to hike up to asda.
These nspa goodies are on 3 for 2 and all come in at £10 they sort of look like the range boots does but i cannot remember what its called (
1.Nspa Body Butters
2. Nspa Bath Gift Set
3.Nspa Shower Gels Gift Set
B&M always have good secret Santa/Stocking fillers they are cheap and cheerful you can't shop online which a hassle as i dont know if you've ever been to B&M but in mine its always so busy no matter what time you go and i cannot handle that so if i do brave it i take my mum as i buffer lol and a plus point they have stuff for the guys that isn't just socks or a lynx set which is a bonus (:
Just a selection of stuff for the guys
1.Super Mario Heat Changing Mug
2.Poo Head Game
3.Snakes & Ladders Drinking Game
4. my personal favorite lol Toilet Fishing Game
I was going to do a whole layout for the female stocking fillers from B&M but as i started i quickly realized that there is a lot more for females under £10 so il just give you the Link
I had a load more planned for this post but as i type this its now the 10th of december and im so behind so im keeping this short and sweet i hope you all understand

We have one tree in the living room (l
ike most people) and i have one in my room which is Disney themed (:
But I'm just going to show you my tree as the living room one isn't quite ready but you will see the tree in my upcoming how we decorated for Christmas's like This One i did (:
All the baubles are from either Primark Poundland or the Disney Store (:
The lights are battery powered and are from Sainsburys and they come with batteries which other stores don't normally do
The tree itself is a 4ft tree and its from Homebase last year i believe it was £10 though just checking the website now it does say that its £8 so maybe it was or maybe they've lowered the price.
So this is my tree it definitely looks better in the dark but that could just be due to the way i have put my tree up (
i was very impatient)
Feel free to tag me in your trees either on Instagram or Twitter (:

For today's post i thought i would share the ten things i love about Christmas
1. Seeing Family as i think iv mentioned we are a busy family and we don't see each other as much as we should and my uncle comes home from America at Christmas and its just really nice to see almost everyone before Christmas
2. Christmas music iv been listening to it since the end of October but its now socially acceptable to listen to it and no one can complain (well they can but i find if you just turn up the music it drowns them out lol)
3. The food all the food why is Christmas food so tasty.
4. buying Christmas gifts - As iv got older i love buying for people and watching them open their gifts Christmas morning
5. Fairy lights i love fairy lights
6. Putting the Christmas tree up it always makes me feel so cosy and warm when i look at it
7. Presents As much as i love buying presents i do like receiving and opening them
8. Christmas movies as I'm writing this I'm currently watching Arthur Christmas
9. Christmas Specials like last year il being doing a post on which ones I'm looking forward to (:
10. Being able to stay in my PJ's all day Christmas day its the best feeling ever
Let me know what you love about Christmas

My Christmas lists have been done and sent to the people they need to go to for about a month now but this wish list is if I had the money what I'd buy myself (:
I know how lucky i am to be able to save to buy these things even if it does take me longer then other people.
I would never ask my family or friends for these as they are expensive items and id rather save up for them myself without my family doing so.
1. A Macbook
My laptop is so broken I don't know how it's still working it's been dropped so many times the battery fell out of it and won't go back in so it needs to be plugged in at all times it has a crack in the top of it and the screen is going but being real I can't just go out and spend £200+ on a laptop unless I don't want to pay any bills or eat for a month yey for a low income. I have looked at getting a MacBook on credit from apple or brighthouse but it's £22.00 a week at brighthouse or £54 a month at apple and my bank just cannot afford that until i get another job unfortunately.
2. A Camera preferably with a flip screen
If you watch my youtube channel then you will know that i film on my iphone which is fine but i only have a 16GB phone which means i have to constantly stop and transfer what iv filmed over to my ipad and carry on which is becoming a faf to be honest.
3. A Apple Watch Series 3
I have a very cheap fitness watch that works in water but it drains my battery all the time as it has to be constantly connected to bluetooth and I'm not quite sure how actuate it is as one week at aqua fusion it will say iv burnt 700 calories the next week it will only be 135 so I'm like which one is it ?? or maybe its me not working hard enough lol. Iv looked in to it and you can use the newer one in the water which is perfect for me (: i decided against the fit bit as i didn't like the reviews on the waterproof one plus the apple watch doubles as a watch which is always handy (:
What is on your christmas wishlist if you have one ??
