Disney's The Lion King (it was magical).

OH MY GOD.

I cried (internally), but I wish I seriously cried real tears from my eyes.

This show was absolutely amazing. I'm so glad I re-watched the cartoon a few days before just to remember everything that happened as after I watched the musical, it lived up to it's full potential.


So yesterday morning, we arrived at the Lyceum Theatre and even before stepping inside I just had to take a picture of the venue as the architecture of this building is beautiful. I've walked past this theatre before but I never got to truly appreciate it's structure and how well it's built. I'm sure it seems like I'm just trying to make this post long, but I was really fascinated with the building itself.

So off we went, we handed in our tickets to the concierge and had a little browse through the souvenir shop as we got there very early to our show time. How cute was this little layout?! I found this so adorable that I just had to grab a quick snap hehe ;)


As soon as I picked up these keyrings, I JUST KNEW I had to buy one for the both of us and that's exactly what I did.


TIME TO SHOW GIGI OUR SEATS.

I didn't tell her where we were sitting as they were quite special seats and considering that this was her Christmas / Birthday treat, I thought she should wait until we got into the theatre! Aren't I cheeky? *monkey face emoji*



TADA. Yup... that's right those were our seats. I got us second row seats (which were basically front row as we could see the stage so well!). I was so happy with our seats as we really got to be apart of the performance when the ensemble started walking through the crowds and interacting with the audience. I cannot begin to tell you what I felt whilst watching the performance, I genuinely thought I was going to cry as so much nostalgia was happening at once... and then it ended and I didn't know what to do with myself afterwards??

So we left, reminisced about the show and continued our London outing with a walk to Convent Garden & then to Leicester Square for dinner - cute.

I'm so happy we finally got to see this as we have both been waiting oh so desperately for the right time to come AND IT FINALLY CAME! Go and see The Lion King, honestly if you want to relive your childhood again this is a must watch.

Cheer Updates!

YAY A NEW POST!
(finally)

I've been desperately wanting to post an update on how cheerleading has been going, but I've never gotten round to figuring out how to word it? Makes sense? Nope, I didn't think so Anyway let's give it a go aye?

I AM A BASE.
(whaaaaaaat?)

Quite a few of my friends and family knew that I'm switching basing this year instead of flying, but everyone online doesn't know so SURPRISE! Ooooh what a change of events ;)


Yep, so no flying from me this year as I am only going to compete as a base! Am I scared? Yes, but I am VERY EXCITED to try out something new and different. I'm happy with this position and flying could be something that comes up again closer to competition season, but for now my basing skills are going to be on point once we've locked down our routine!

Fundraising is going really well! Our bake sale the other day raised £70+ and I couldn't be any happier with this outcome. The stress that I had with this wasn't that much of a big issue, but along with studying and actually doing cheer, the fact that we pulled it off with an end result like this made me so happy. All the planning that I conducted paid off and I felt a huge weight disappear off my shoulders.


⬇️ plus I happened to make these cute-ass Vanilla Bow Cookies, which were a hit! ⬇️

*pats myself on the back*
Not sure what else to add about fundraising, but watch out for 2016 as I have some ideas that I should be taking place for then! :)

❤️ Girls Only ❤️


As we are an all girl team this year, it's really amazing how well we've all bonded. It might just be me talking, but this year I've really put myself out there & started talking to more girls than I did last year. I don't know if it's just because I'm on the committee this year but I feel as if that I'm really making a name for myself instead of just hanging around 2-3 people like I did before. Anyway, these girls are fab and I can't wait to compete alongside them all. Hopefully I've got an in-detailed update coming out in the future about cheer, but alas all I can give out is that our training is going to intensify in 2016!
