Favourite Quotes

Haven't seen this post anywhere, so I thought I could do it. I like quotes and try to memorise my favourites (other people put feelings and the world so much clearer and better than I do!) and some of them are just so beautiful, so yeah. Thought I'd share my favourites- some of these are from songs and books but others are just normal ones... hope that made sense?

* In no particular order*

1) 'Second star to the right and straight on 'til morning' - Peter Pan
I like this quote because it is so magical and for some reason I just imagine flying through the night in my pyjamas, across all the sleeping people and the dark streets and it makes me feel all cosy inside! 

2) 'Tell the negative committee that meets inside your head to sit down and shut up'- Ann Bradford
A good quote for someone who has really low- confidence. If we followed this quote daily then I bet we would all be a lot happier and more confident.
chose this because it was the best picture out of all the quotes

3) 'Thomas Edison's last words were ''it's very beautiful over there.'' I don't know where 'there' is. But I believe it's somewhere, and I hope it's beautiful' - Thomas Edison and John Green (From Looking For Alaska- my favourite book in the whole world!)
Wow, a fairly long quote, but it is one of my favourites (partly the reason why it's my favourite book) it's just very inspirational and thought- provoking.

4) 'There is freedom waiting for you, on the breezes of the sky. You ask 'what if I fall?'. Oh, but darling what if you fly?' - Erin Hanson
I just imagine a wise woman telling me this, and it spurs me on to do things I perhaps am nervous about doing!

5) 'Hearts are wild creatures- that's why our ribs are cages'- unknown
Not usually a fan of quotes about love and relationships but this quote is so beautifully poetic, so I had to include it!

6) 'Some people dream of success... while others wake up and work hard at it'- Eminem/ Mark Zuckerburg (Googled it and they both said it so I didn't know who to put!)
Which is what I try to do everyday, so I guess I like it because it reflects my life. It also says its not going to be easy, and you're going to have to work hard. But that's alright if you are chasing your dreams.

7)  'They are beautiful people- But that's their job!'- Jim Chapman
He said this in one of his YouTube videos and it is so good. I'd never thought about it like this before. The people we see and judge ourselves on, are often paid to look like that because it is their job, and they are just good at their job!

8) 'I'd shoot for the moon but I'm too buys gazing at the stars'- Eminem, Not Afraid.
I'm not entirely sure what this quote is trying to say, but I interpret it probably completely different to what it actually means! I think, for me, it is saying that they are trying to reach their goals but you need to just occasionally stop and take in all the good things around you. 

Ooh, I almost forgot. I'm trying to do a picture a post (that I've taken) and so this is the spectacular glass roof in one of Bletchley Park's buildings. I recently visited there and I highly recommend it!

Well, that's it for now my little chickpeas! Speak to you soon, hopefully. Sorry that the posts are a bit erraticly (not a word) scheduled but I only do them when I have some spare time on my hands. Love you all. Signed, Geekling. xx

Thoughtless Thursday (it's Tuesday but oh well!)

Before I 'reverted to Draft' all my old posts, the most popular ones were Thoughtless Thursdays, so just like flares... I'm bringing them back! Although this post, kind of just, fuelled my obsession with rose gold. Sorry! By the way the editing of these pictures almost eliminated what little sanity I had left!
*These pictures are not my own, they are ones open to the public on Pinterest, by having them on my blog I see it as a compliment that the pictures are really good, but feel free to ask me to remove them.*

My Favourites (It's all a bit muddled!)

Hello! (*whispers* is it me your looking for?*)

Ok, so I've cottoned on that a lot of people are doing monthly favourites so I thought I'd hop on the bandwagon and join in- just for the lols! So yeah, I've got quite a few but I'll keep the writing to a minimum. Number one is...

1) Brownie Pie!
It sounds quite weird (especially because some people associate pie with meat and savoury pastry!) but it is basically a gooey brownie inside a sweet pastry case... they are delicious. I got the recipe from a Baking book, but I'm sure if you Googled it you could make it too!

2) Pinterest.
A lot of you probably already know what Pinterest is but if you don't I'll explain it for you! It is basically an app you can get on your smartphone or online and you can type in a word or choose a category and it shows loads and loads of other 'pinners' pictures. You can then either like the image and/ or pin it on a board you can create. So it's basically like virtual scrapbooking but with other people's images! (Although you can post your own too) It's hard to explain but if you want to try it out to see what it's like, a good word to type in is 'iridescent'... it brings up loads of pretty and quirky shiny things!

3) The Comic Relief Nail Wraps!
In case you hadn't already noticed;
a) I am obsessed with all things nails!
And b) It is Comic Relief this Friday! 
So get involved and do something funny for money, or support the cause by buying something from their range. I went for a nose (I got Snorbit!) and these cute and fun nail wraps... I can't wait to use them!

4) My Sherlock Necklace
Well I also really like Sherlock (...and the actor who plays him!) and so I was recieved this as a gift, and it is a necklace with a kind of graphic design of Sherlock (from the TV adaptation) on it, it's just the prefect gift for me! As I got it for a gift I don't know where it came from, so I'm going to guess Etsy, as that site sells things like this.

5) Money Super Market's TV advert!
I know this is so random, but it makes me smile every time I see or hear it... so I shared the link with you guys so you can have a laugh too.

6) Rose Gold!
I also got bought a set of bath and beauty goodies (I'm a very lucky lady!) and all of them had rose gold lids on the bottles and it has just reignited my love of the metal By the way, this is also a good phrase to search for in Pinterest XD! I know want rose gold hair, rose gold headphones, rose gold lights and rose gold stationary! This photo is one of my fave's because it looks so vintage but it also has a funny story behind it. The perfume wouldn't spray properly so I looked to see if the end was clear and sprayed it straight into my eye. So yeah, just an insight into my incredible stupidity there!

7) Scaffold Piercings
Some people call them industrial piercings but y'know 'po-tay-to' 'po-tar-ta'! I find them quirky and a bit different. I also really like this bar, so if I did get them done (which is hopefully happening) I would get the arrow. It's like the one from Hunger Games! Oh, by the way, this isn't my image so if you want it removed by all means comment and I will replace it/ take it down.
Thanks for reading. Sorry for abandoning you for a while, it's just my life has been busy and changing quite a bit for me so I've been struggling to find time/ mindset to post. Hugs, Geekling. xx
