So here we are, I'm 25. A quarter of a century old, I don't even feel that old and it felt like just 10 minutes ago I was entering the 'adult' phrase of my life. I don't feel 25 or that I'm even adult enough.
When you read this I'll be on my way to either the farm with friends or Glamping with my boyfriend, and drowning my sorrows of how old I am becoming!
25 feels like a mature age, feels like I should be settled and ready for kids and marriage (let me tell you I'm not). Well I guess I am nearly there with my boyfriend living in our rented property in a house in a little village and on my first steps of my career - I wouldn't have it any other way. Well I would like a pet at the end of the year, I guess if your not ready for kids pets are the next thing. I'm definitely not where I imagined I'd be at 25.
I wanted to share what I've learnt about myself, and life, so far..

I am really enjoying hunting through nostalgic YouTube footage to source the content for the blog posts this week, my birthday week.
As I turn 25 I reflect on 25 years of my life and films I often watched regularly comes into my conversations, because I loved so many (and still do!) If I could then I would turn back time to enjoy them over and over again.
I've formulated my list of 50 films I loved as a kid for you today, which was a pretty easy process as soon as one popped into my head so did another.
I share some wonderful memories of watching these films so I've shared those as well as trailers for the films chosen. Your going to need a big cup of tea and a couple of biscuits for this blog post as it's a pretty long one. These are just in alphabetical order.

RENT continues to be one of my all time favourite musicals and having already planned to see it in the London West End when it arrives later in the year for Christmas. I was so excited when I heard that The Old Rep Theatre was opening a production of it in Birmingham and even better when I was invited to review the press night performance of it.
Having watched the film on repeat, sung my heart out to the songs and felt the raw emotion of each number I had pretty high expectations for this performance and what I was about to see.
I'm turning 25 this Friday and I thought what better way to talk about it on my blog with a bit of nostalgia of my childhood, after all 25 is a bit of a chapter in your life (after turning 21 of course!)
Inspired by the lovely Nicole over at Through Your Eyes Blog, she recently wrote the post 50 TV SHOWS I LOVED AS A KID and I couldn't stop thinking about it and discussing the TV shows I loved as a kid.
I truly believe that in the 90s and early 00s the TV Programmes were just top of their game for children and myself like other children couldn't wait to finish school and watch their favourites. Before the introduction of the internet and such wonderful things as MSN, TV was one of the main ways we entertained our younger selves.
I absolutely loved constructing this list of 50 TV SHOWS I LOVED AS A KID along with some GIFS (obviously!)
