GAMING : My Monthly Favourites

Hello Everyone! 
So a slight change as to what I was going to write about, but I felt inspired to jump into a post about Gaming. 

For a massive passion that I have for it, I don't really write about it enough. 
So I thought that I would let you in on what I have been loving this past month. 

So at the start of the month, I decided that I wanted to work my way through some Games with Gold games & PSN Monthly free games. 
For those who don't know what these are - Every month both Xbox and Playstation give away four games to those that are members of their online community. 
You have to pay £ 40 a year for this access. 
Basically, I wanted to free up some space on my hard drives and also I wanted to try something new. 
I think that its really easy to get stuck in a rut. 

So I will start with TellTale Games. 
I have played two this month: Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead. 
So far I have only played the first chapter of each as thats all the free access that I was given. 
I have always…

BEAUTY & LIFESTYLE This Past Week and Blogging Resolutions

Hello Everyone! 
So its been a little while since my last post, so I thought that I would give you all a little update and also let you in on some late blogging resolutions that I have set for myself. 
So, at the start of the week, I finally put all of my footage together from December and uploaded it to Youtube. 
I think my favourite moment was the one below: 

The Cats seeing the snow for the first time. Neither of them really wanted to go in it, but they both gave it a go. 
You can check the video out below :

It was lovely to see what we had done over the month, we were so busy and it went by in such a flash.  
I think thats the beauty of Youtube videos, I've been uploading since 2015 so I have alot to look back on and enjoy. Plus I get to share everything with you guys too! 
I think with blog posts, they can disappear very quickly, with Videos they seem to hang around alot longer. 

On Tuesday, Luke and I went to the cinema to go and see the latest Insidious movie. 

I have seen everyone i…

LIFESTYLE : A Few TV Shows that I've finished

Hiya guys, 
We had a really big reason to celebrate at the start of the week, my fiancee passed his driving test! 
It was something that he had wanted to do since I met him and I've known him for over six years. 
It was amazing to see him achieve such a big life event, I have to say I was rather nervous for him on the day.
I struggled to focus at work, I kept checking my phone for news and ringing him. 
But he did it. 
The Smile on his face as he drove us to work the next day was one of the most beautiful and happy that I have ever seen from him. 
Proud doesn't even cover it  

So on to the main bulk of this post. 
I set myself a little challenge at the start of 2018. I wanted to protect and help my mental health as the last year was very difficult in the summer. 
To do this I tailored some resolutions around this idea. 
Basically, I want to crack my way through as many new TV shows, Anime, Films, games and books as I possibly can. 
So far, I have watched four new fi…

GAMING : Stardew Valley

Hello Everybody! 
I hope that you are having a nice relaxing weekend. 

I started mine by decluttering after Christmas and I can't help but feel that my living room looks rather empty! 

I did however manage to amass alot of candles over Christmas... The main reason being that I had a Yankee Candle advent calander
Below are some of what I got. 

And here is the full collection....

I have to be a little careful because Diego has no concept of open flames. 
I had a candle lit and he swished his tail on to the flame. He didn't seem to notice and I batted him off of it. 
Poor Baby got a little burn and some burnt fur :(
Ever since, I have been reserved when using them. 
So on to the main bulk of the post.
I have used this weekend to do some well over due gaming and because I have spent the last year on the Playstation, I felt it was more than time to jump on the Xbox.
I have been playing through some of the free offerings from Games with Gold. 

I started with Game of Thrones and then played th…
