The Theatre…

I’ve always seen going to the theatre as a magical experience. There’s just so much it offers, in comparison to watching a film. I mean for starters there’s the environment. The uniqueness of the theatre building’s. The Victorian architecture; leaving the thought in the back of your mind about all of the generations that have sat there before you, seeing possibly the same production, with just a different cast and a few tweaks here and there and a modernised set.

Not only that but I think the theatre as a whole has such an amazing ability to create a community out of people, you’d never expect to be together. The different ages, backgrounds, everything…all these people brought together for one purpose, that being to see this particular show. The jumbled voices of everyone speaking before the show begins, then as soon as the light drops the audience almost in unison comes to a silence eagerly awaiting the start of the introduction music. I just think it’s incredible.

The whole atmosphere of the theatre during the show, leaves me speechless. Everyone’s undivided attention due to everyone respecting the no phones request of the staff. The dramatic build up of applause at the end of each scene. The feeling of showing so much appreciation to the whole cast and everyone who takes part to make the production what it is. I really think it’s nice to be able to go to the theatre even if it’s not very often. Just to see the comparison of how we kind of lose ourselves not only in technology but just in the world. If people showed that kind of appreciation everyday to people just doing everyday things…it’d definitely make everyone’s day a bit nicer.

Even just talking about it makes me love it even more…I guess that’s why I wanted to go into theatre myself…the passion’s still there it seems. ❤️

 

Who Inspires You?

There’s been a lot of inspirational people in my life…all of them different. There are those who have been there from birth like my mum, my dad and my sister. There are some who have developed inspiration over time, like lifelong best friends who are always there when they are needed most. There are those who are present for a period of time before moving on, like ex boyfriends, or lost friends. And then there are those who we randomly bump into in daily life, who can inspire us in such a short time and then disappear back into the world. No matter what the time period, people around us inspire us…and that inspiration can stay with us and effect us for years.

So this is basically a thank you, to everyone who has ever inspired me in my life so far. Collectively it has effected me and shaped me into the person I am today, and by doing so an unknown community has been made in a sense…which of course overtime will continue to grow.

I’d like to think I could have inspired some people who passed through my life too, but if not I shall aim to do it from now on!

Liebster Award!

Nomination…

I was nominated by the amazing Daniella, from https://makeupyourmindx.wordpress.com. Thank you for the nomination! I’ve been reading blogs about this, but never thought I’d get nominated. You have a great blog, that’s worth everyone checking out! Also I apologise for not using the questions you provided I made a whoopsie and didn’t read past the questions you answered on your blog until after I wrote this (secret facepalm).

So what is the Liebster Award?

The Liebster Award is basically an award you get nominated for by a fellow blogger, if you have under 200 followers. You then answer 11 questions provided by that blogger, and then nominate 5-11 other bloggers providing them with another 11 questions of your choice. From my understanding the aim is to spread the word about bloggers you follow, and suggest them to other people. Overall creating a type of promotion for a number of bloggers to allow them to get more followers, or to just get their writing noticed more. I personally think this is a great way to build up a community and whoever created it is a genius in the blogosphere.

My Questions

1. Why did you start blogging? I started blogging for a number of reasons. Firstly I’ve always liked writing and sharing random thoughts, and through blogging you can also generate good feedback in relation to these thoughts. Secondly I finished University, and through university you do a lot of essays, so once that I finished I had a bit of a gap in my life (plus i think one of the best noises in the world is the sound of a keyboard  being used). Finally I have an aspiration to start a YouTube channel and I think in some ways this could be a good platform to launch that a bit.

2. What is your favourite beauty product? My favourite at the moment is the CC Cream by ‘GOSH’ in 02 Ivory, I just think it makes my face feel so soft and look amazing! Especially when my eczema gets bad, it really helps the red patches appear ‘normal’.

3. Do you have any siblings? Yes I have an older sister called Charlotte who is 25, and she is amazing!

4. Most embarrassing moment of your life? I have too many to list, I think overall I am just a very clumsy person and in some ways a bit socially awkward which of course does me no favours.

5. What are three words you would use to describe yourself? Small, observant and polite.

6. Do you have any pets? I personally have a cat, and two gerbils. However the total number of animals at my house including those 3 is 7 (I counted the tropical fish as 1 pet).

7. What is your favorite season and why? Summer. The days seem long. The nights seem long. There’s nicer clothing to be worn. Overall more opportunities for different activities.

8. Favorite article of clothing? I don’t really have a favourite. You can’t go wrong with checked shirt during the day, and a nice chiffon dress at night (if you are going somewhere).

9. What is a hobby of yours? Taking pictures. I wouldn’t class myself as a photographer because I don’t think I’m anywhere near as skilled as I should be, but it is something I really enjoy. Take a look at my Instagram 😉

10. Name one thing you can’t live without? Air? (I know I’m SO funny!)

11. Favorite food? Chicken, pizza, ice cream, corn on the cob, cake, pulled pork, chips, chilli…. My name is Natalie…and I’m a foodaholic
