The Thing About Me is:

I have been considering doing something like this for a few months, but wasn't sure that you peeps would like that kind of thing. Overall, I want to have a more rounded blog. More about what I like and my interests. My blog is, after all, about lifestyle as well as beauty. 

What I'm trying to say, or more of a warning, that my nerdy side will appear. I have no qualms about that. I just hope you enjoy what you are about to read. 

So. The Thing About Me is: I like Anime

I told you this will get nerdy :) 

If you have seen what i've been bragging about on Twitter recently, then you know (Sorry, not sorry). If you haven't well carry on reading...

I have always loved watching Anime tv programmes and films, since I was a child. I think the first programme I watched, was called lulu, Angel flower, or something like that. I was five at the time and I loved it. I have no idea, how my nan managed to pic the video tape up as it was in Japanese. But, that didn't phase me at all. My imagination ran wild with this one.

Fast forward to my teens and Spirited Away came to our screens. I absolutely adore this film and gives an almost 'Alice in Wonderland' feel, but more edgier. It's pretty much about a ten-year old girl, who moves to a new neighbourhood. She, then enters a spirit world after her parents are transformed into pigs. All in all, she has to find a way back to the human world. 
I also enjoyed The Triplets of Belleville.

Anime has always interested me. I love the drawing styles and colours used. At school, I would be forever trying to draw anime and failing at it big time.

 However, still to this day, if I draw a person, they would have the typical anime face shape and eyes. There's something about using your imagination while reading or watching Anime. Even if it's in Japanese and sometimes with no English subs. You can pretty much get what's happening from the different expressions of a character and sounds that they make. Which have me laughing out loud. 

Another thing why I like it so much is, that it's educational. You learn about Japanese culture as well as the language. If it's got English subs on it, then you can learn phrases and single words. 

Since meeting my now husband nine years ago. I kind of stopped watching it. I thought, I better grow up and stop watching 'cartoons'. Though, I did make him watch Spirited Away with me once. It's only now that, I have gotten back into it. I work with quite a few younger people in my day job and some of them like me, have an interest in Anime and have been recommending tv series.

Hence my obsession with Ao Haru Ride (Blue Spring Ride). I will tell you more about that in another post. 

I have also been playing the Shall We Date app. Well, I have been playing it for a year. It's a Romance story in a game and you have to collect points to progress in the story. I would recommend Blood in Roses and Love Tangle.

My Recommendations:

Spirited Away

Below can be viewed over at

See you Soon
