I’ve been blogging for about a year and a half now, and only 6 of those months have been regularly on here. As much as I love writing about a huge variety of different topics, I want to put more focus on one particular interest: food & health.
I am a huge music lover. I may posses zero musical talent, but I consider myself pretty damn good at listening to the stuff. I’ve never been one to stick to a specific genre and my iTunes and Spotify ranges from Green Day to Kesha to Shania Twain. I’m sure I’m not the only one when I say that there are a number of songs that I could listen to on repeat and never get tired of. Songs that I can never bring myself to skip whenever I’ve got my music on shuffle. Here are five of those songs.
The Call by Regina Spektor
Usually when someone asks what my favourite song is, I’ll just go with my favourite song at that moment in time. Really I should be going with this. ‘The Call’ is my number one favourite song of all time. I first discovered it after watching ‘The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian’ back when it was first released in 2008 and I have loved it ever since. I was just in love with Regina’s voice and I always related the song with my old obsession with the Narnia films. As I got older however, the meaning of the song changed for me and it became a lot more emotional as I felt I could relate to it in terms of my recovery. The lyrics that stood out to me especially during this time were ‘You’ll come back when it’s over, no need to say goodbye.’
Have you ever been so intrigued and in love with a country that isn’t your own? One that you have never even been to? If so, then maybe you will understand where I’m coming from when I say that I love Japan.
For 3/4 years now, I have been captivated and obsessed with the east Asian country. Before my love of Japan took over, I had never been overly fussed about other countries in the respect that there was no country that I was overly eager to visit. I am very much a homebody. However, Japan is the only country that I would genuinely jump at the chance of going to and would 100% choose to go to over my family’s usual summer holiday destination of a Haven holiday park.
But what is it that makes me so eager to visit the country?
Being a huge foodie, naturally I have foods that I consider staples in my diet. These are foods that I eat almost every day and if I’m not stocked up on them I feel on edge and feel the need to go up to the supermarket and buy more – or should I say, my Mum goes.
So, without further ado, here are my top 5 food staples.
My favourite thing to eat for breakfast, and what I eat most days, is porridge. I previously addressed the reason for this as being you can get creative with your toppings. However, I also genuinely like the taste of plain porridge oats. Call me boring or whatever you like, but I cannot deny my taste buds. Porridge is great because it’s filling and warming which is especially needed when living in Scotland.
Life has been both hectic but amazing over the past couple of months for a number of different reasons. From education to relationships, I feel as if I’ve been go-go-go for weeks now.
I recently uploaded a ‘life update’ video to my YouTube channel and as I was running low on blog ideas and as suggested by my boyfriend, I thought I would sum the video up in written form. I’m aware that both my blog and YouTube may have different audiences so I may do more of this type of thing in the future!
