March Obsessions!

Hello Lovelies! 
This is when I write a post about everything I've been listening to, eating, watching, wearing, and most of all, OBSESSING over for the past month!
I missed February Obsessions, so I'm going to go hard out on this one. You're in for a treat. Hopefully. 

March Obsessions

Music Obsession: Still 'Halcyon' by Ellie Goulding! If you haven't listened to this album yet, drop what you're doing and go check it out! If you've only got time for one song, I recommend track number 2 called 'My Blood'. Its spectacular.
Movie Obsession: I just saw 'Oz The Great and Powerful'. Aside from the few cheesy moments, I thought it was such a fun and exciting movie. And the effects were amazing. I want to live in Oz (but then again, who doesn't?)
Book Obsession: I just started 'The Book Thief' by Markus Zusak. I'm only a few pages in, but I'm enjoying it already. That's why its here - a future obsession prediction. 
Food Obsession: It's technically a type of drink, but its simply divine. Perfect on a chilly day while snuggled up on the couch.
Clothing Obsession: My thing lately has been maxi dresses. Currently awaiting this purple one in the mail. It will be perfect for my long flight to L.A, as its soft and stretchy material.

I've saved the best til last....

T.V Obsession: GAME OF THRONES! Season 3 is back this week, and I am so amped! Just seeing this simple promo is enough to get me all excited. Furthermore, I've just seen these game of thrones themed pint glasses on the interwebs. I must have them!!!

What are you loving this month? I'm always keen for future obsessions!

Disney Update!

Time for another Disney update.

Right now I'm sitting around, anxiously awaiting the arrival of my official Disney welcome package. The welcome package will have all of the information we need to sort out our Visa, as well as our medical insurance for when we are in the states. 
When the welcome pack arrives it will all feel so much more official! I can't wait. It should be arriving in April, so that's not far off at all.

I thought to pass the time, I'd get all involved in the Disney Challenge again. I had previously got up to number 5, and then failed miserably at keeping up to date with it,
Right, so lets pick it back up!

Day 6: Your favourite animal.

It's safe to say that this little guy is by far my favourite animal. He's just so adorable!! But I do have a second that I just had to include out of love:

It's Figaro the Cat!  I'm neutral about Cleo the fish.

Day 7: Your favourite sidekick:

This one was a little bit more difficult, so again, I've decided upon two. Well, technically it's four, but only two movies:

Made even more cool by the fact that Robin Williams is his voice :)
So there you have it, a couple more Disney favourites! 

Have a magical day!

I can save your life......Or at least try to!

Hello everyone. Long time no blog. Like looooooong time. 
I have no definitive explanation as to why I've been so slack on the blog front. I think it's actually just been pure laziness. And lack of good life stories. 

But.....I now have an exciting story! Woohoo.

Last week, I attended an Emergency First Aid training course as part of my work training. It was a whole day of putting random people I've never met into the recovery position, doing CPR on an adult dummy, a child dummy, and a little baby dummy; and practising bandaging up difficult injuries. For the bandaging part, we have to split into groups and decide on an injury that would be hard to deal with. My group went with the ear, and some poor guy named Damian had to sit looking like a dork with a massive bandage around his head.
 So, a few days ago, I received my certificate in the mail, which officially makes me a trained First Responder! I'm also now a nominated first aider for my work, which makes me a little nervous, but I doubt that anything will ever happen.

...Touch wood.

Official proof of my lifesaving skills:

So, there you have it. I can at least attempt to save your life If you are ever dying. 
I'm quite proud of myself actually, for finally learning a new skill that is actually an incredibly valuable thing to know. 

Do any of you lovely readers know first aid? Have you ever had to save someone's life? I'm quite terrified of the day that I might have to...
