Six things sunday

star tea light holder
Sundays are for relaxing and reflecting (in my book anyways!) Every now and again I like to post more personal posts, as that’s what I love about lifestyle blogs and I enjoy reading slightly more personal posts from time to time, so here’s a little reflection of my thoughts from this week.
2. Jurassic World, was incredible.
Tom and I went to the cinemas on Thursday, to see Jurassic World *hums theme tune* I couldn’t decide if I was more excited to see Chris Pratt in 3D or dinosaurs. We absolutely loved the film, I won’t give any spoilers away but we have already decided to go again haha! Tom tricked me into seeing Mad Max, I was told it was a really good action film… he lured me with a bag of pick ‘n’ mix.
3. PLL is back!
Oh man I’m so glad Pretty Little Liars, is back, it’s such a good show. I just hate having to watch one episode a week when they’re always so good and not to mention tense and full of cliff hangers, what else am I supposed to watch in between parks and rec? Who doesn’t love a good series binge I mean that’s what Sundays and Saturdays and Fridays are for…just me? Ok, then.
4. I finally booked my smear test.
Apologies if this is a little TMI for your liking, but like I said this post was personal so don’t say I didn’t warn you! For a little while, I put it off because well, I was scared. I’ve seen a lot of it in the media, the news etc and I just put it off, which is the wrong thing to do, that won’t help anything at all. I figured there’s probably nothing wrong with me, but if there is, the sensible thing to do is get seen and checked out. Please don’t put it off πŸ™‚
5. Who gets a cold during summer? me.
Hot and cold, hot and cold. Surrounded by kleenex, forgetting what it was like to swallow without your throat feeling like it’s filled with glass. I expect this in the winter, but June? Come on immune system, I’m sorry for plying my body with pick ‘n’ mix. I guess an aching body is just an excuse for a super long bubble bath and maybe doing a spot of shopping from my sick bed!
6. Bitchy resting face, the struggle is real.
Bitchy resting face, is when your just relaxing, walking around minding your own business, you think you look, happy, smiley and approachable, but no. I suffer from Bitchy resting face, I need to work on it because I must look so miserable and unapproachable when on the inside I’m super happy. Being asked What’s wrong, told to smile more and don’t worry it might never happen when you think you resemble cinderella, you know…smiling, singing, surrounded by happy, helpful little animals. must work on smiling more. BRF the struggle is real.

    I relate to so many of these things! Resting Bitch face is real. I freakin love pretty little liars! And seriously Jurassic World was everything I hoped it would be.

    I hope you feel better soon! I've had a summer cold too, it's so rubbish! I've heard so many raving reviews of Jurassic Park, I'll have to go and see it!

    I can completely relate to the driving thing. I'm 22 and just started to learn (had 2 lessons so far). I hated my first lesson and was dreading the second but it went okay. I think confidence really is key to learning to drive πŸ™‚ I've just got over a summer cold too – they suck! Hope you're feeling lots better. Caught up with all 5 seasons of PLL a few weeks ago and loving it. Season 6 is looking excellent so far πŸ˜€

    Thank you for such a lovely Sunday post πŸ™‚ xxx

    I love the film Jurassic park it is so great I just watched it last night and I loved it

  5. June 14, 2015 / 7:49 am

    We went to see Jurassic World last night and loved it. In the build up to it being released we watched the first three and let me just say, if you have not yet watched the third film, don't bother! It was awful! #4 definitely made up for it though!

  6. June 14, 2015 / 8:26 am

    Good luck with the driving! Don't feel embarrassed, I'm 21 and passed when I was 17 but only drove properly last week because I went to uni.. I was SO BAD. I've got a P plate haha but after one week I'm loads better already. You'll learn over time for sure πŸ™‚ And also, I think it's great that you've mentioned the smear test, it will encourage others too! xx

    Ahh I hate it when people tell me to smile when I have a resting bitch face – I am just resting ahhh! It's the worst. And I can't wait to watch Jurassic World. xx

    Sundays are definitely for relaxing, hence why I got up to make pancakes and am now back in bed πŸ™‚

    I definitely relate to the bitchy resting face, I am trying to smile and typically I am very happy person but naturally I have a bitchy resting face. I cannot wait to see Jurassic Park, I have heard so many good things. Great post.

    Great little post πŸ™‚ I really want to watch Jurassic world soon~ looks amazing. Mad max is never really a film for me and I'm glad that i didn't get lured into it haha. Good luck with your driving lessons and I hope you enjoy them more soon.

    Have a great day! β™₯

    Thanks for the reminder to book my next smear test – they really aren't that bad, honest! Tip: I tend to go to specialist family planning clinics rather than the GP as they do hundreds so they're more well-practised πŸ˜‰

    I'm so glad you mentioned your driving lessons as I also don't have my license! Living in Melbourne I've never really needed to drive, but I've been putting it off for so long now!

    Learning to drive at 25 shouldn't be embarrassing at all…I've always felt that you should learn to drive when you need to, not because it's the "norm" (otherwise you're just wasting money on lessons, insurance, MOT etc. when you're not even driving that often).

    PS Not sure if it's just me but your beautiful new blog design appears to have reverted back to your old one – still lovely of course, but in case it wasn't your intention, just thought you should know. Might just be my laptop/browser – either way, your blog is still gorgeous ^_^

    My dad wants me to start driving lesson, but I'm not sure about it… After reading this, maybe I'll finally decide, so thank you! πŸ™‚ Yeyy for PLL, I couldn't wait for it to start, but I haven't had much time to watch it, so now I have two episodes πŸ˜€ Also, about the bitchy face..I'm struggling with that too. My friends often say to me to smile more, 'cause they know real me, but other people probably think I am not a nice person haha

  15. June 14, 2015 / 1:55 pm

    I relate to these too, I so have bitchy resting face! Can't wait to see Jurassic World!

    I'm 30 years old and still haven't learned how to drive it makes me wonder if I ever will. Congrats on starting your lessons! Love your blog! πŸ˜‰

  17. June 14, 2015 / 3:01 pm

    Don't worry, I'm 25 and am just learning how to drive too. I live in the city so there was never a reason to actually get your driver's license since everyone uses the metro. Have a nice Sunday πŸ™‚

  18. June 14, 2015 / 3:40 pm

    I'm 22 and learning to drive, got my test the end of this month and am pretty scared!Failed first time round so I'm hoping it's second time lucky


  19. June 14, 2015 / 4:55 pm

    Good Luck with your driving lessons, it gets easier with time πŸ™‚ Good job on booking your smear, you should keep it as part of your routine checkups πŸ™‚


  20. June 14, 2015 / 6:07 pm

    oh my dear, I suffer from anxiety too…it used to be bad but now it's much better, and funnily enough reading your blog helps me to calm down from time to time- all the white decor and relaxed vibe πŸ™‚

    I didn't start to drive until I was 23, just remember to take your time and be gentle with yourself- and after a while you'll realise it's really fun! Also don't be afraid to change instructors, my first one was this angry guy but then I changed to a soothing lady instructor who was lovely πŸ™‚ best of luck! xxx

  21. June 14, 2015 / 6:56 pm

    Ahh that's so exciting that you're starting driving! Best of luck with it all, the freedom it brings is absolutely amazing, I'm sure you going to love it!

    These sorts of posts make me smile lots! I can relate to a few of them too… I'm happy OITNB is back, I've got constant bitchy resting face and I decided I will go for a smear test when I get my next lot of pills – two birds one stone! And TMI!

    Awesome post! πŸ™‚ I can't wait to watch Jurassic world!

  24. June 14, 2015 / 10:13 pm

    Great post, i havent seen jurassic world yet but it has to be soon =]

  25. June 14, 2015 / 11:47 pm

    Jurassic World was SO good. I'm a huge fan of the franchise (even the third one was alright) haha πŸ™‚


  26. June 15, 2015 / 12:30 am

    Well, you're not alone in getting a summer cold. I tend to get them every summer as well πŸ™

  27. June 15, 2015 / 12:43 am

    AHAHAHAHAHA I DIED WITH THE LAST ONE! BRF is real. My boyfriend sometimes has the male version of it, and gets so annoyed when I ask what's wrong. Hahahahaaa oh man!

  28. June 15, 2015 / 3:31 am

    Gotta see Jurassic World still and Mad Max was amazing!!!!!!!! I'd see it again if I could.

    Also, once you get your licence, it's the best feeling ever!

    Good luck with the driving lessons – it will be so worth it after you've passed. The freedom it brings is unbelievable! I hated the driving lessons at first (because it was Dad teaching me!).

    Jurassic World was fantastic!! Chris Pratt in the lead role was a genius idea! I really want to go again!

    And great that you've got your smear booked. As horrible as they are, they are so worth doing.

  30. June 15, 2015 / 8:58 am

    Good luck with your driving lessons, I am 21 and haven't found the confidence to start learning yet but I am sure you will do brilliantly. I hate having colds in Summer too, I have recently shift the flu from me but there does seem to be something going round! Jurassic World is definitely something I want to see soon, Insidious 3 was amazing (if you like horrors)! πŸ™‚ xx

  31. June 15, 2015 / 11:43 am

    I still remember finding driving so frightening and fast s well, when I had my first few lessons, but it really does get so much better after a little while! ^_^

  32. June 15, 2015 / 2:46 pm

    Good luck with your driving test. I got mine at 19 but don't drive much. I'm so glad PLL is back too and I just look forward to it every week.

    I like reading more personal posts too πŸ™‚ I can often relate to them more! Apparently my rest face looks like I'm about to burst into tears. It's worrying how people think I'm upset when I'm actually happy on the inside!!

    I'm 24 and cannot drive yet. I started learning when I first turned 17 and have been having lessons on and off since. At first I enjoyed it and really couldn't wait to pass, but once it became obvious I was really slow at picking it up I began to hate it! I failed my first test a few years ago and it completely destroyed my confidence. I've just returned home from university and know I need to start learning again – hopefully it won't take me long to pick it back up! Best of luck with your lessons xxx

    I didn't start driving until I was 25 either! It was really embarrassing at the time, but that fades. πŸ™‚ There are plenty of people out there who started late but keep quiet over it. Once you get your license it feels incredible! I also have an incredible case of bitchy resting face. I could be in the most pleasant mood and people will tell me to cheer up, hah!

    Best of luck with your lessons! You'll get it in no time flat!

    I think it's called "Resting Bitch Face" but they way you say it is cute πŸ™‚ x x

  37. June 25, 2015 / 2:54 pm

    I'm supposed to work on driving this summer too! I should probably start studying for the written test. It's the actual driving part that I'm worried about haha. // I have to wait until my brother gets back from camping to watch Jurassic World aghh!! // I suffer from resting bitch face too πŸ™ I've been trying to keep a casual smile and some light in my eyes but sometimes it feels a little too forced. #struggles -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's
