Girl Boss Netflix Review

I want more.....Girl boss I physically need more Sophia in my life.
I'm praying that there are many more seasons to come.

Well that was emotional.I feel like I'm in a new chapter of my life now.

I have just spent my weekend watching Girl Boss season one.13x30 min episodes = 6.5 hours of my life watching a Netflix series and I don't regret a second of it.

Wow that all just blurted out into words!Get if together Carla.

Ambitious are just a few words used to described my emotions whilst watching Girl Boss.

"Sophia, an anarchist misfit, discovers a passion for fashion, becoming an unlikely businesswoman in the process. As her business grows, however, she has to learn to cope with life as her own boss."

Britt Robertson fitted the part perfectly and she is one of my favourite Actresses so I was even more obsessed.

Girl boss is a greats series for Teenage/young adults to show them to never stop dreaming,you are capable of anything you desire.

I feel really empowered and am definitely going to buy Sophia Amaruso Girl boss book.


The show really connected with me and I feel passionate about it. I've been thinking a lot lately about my career and to start acting on my dreams,as times only passing by.

What's even more awesome is that the show is actually based loosely off of real events that happened to Sophia.

"Adulthood is where dreams go to die"

I would 100% recommend Girl Boss to you and I see a future for more series.

Now it's time for me to start working on my dreams and for me to be a #GIRLBOSS

Have you read girl boss ?

"Love you in case I die!"

Am I A True Sagittarius ?

All credit to the idea of this post to @ellamaygarrett 

Let's see if I live up to being a true Sagittarius according to zodiac signs.


1- Generous 
3-Great sense of humour 

I would like to say that I am generous as I love giving presents and helping people out whenever I can.

In terms of idealistic,100%.I am such a daydreamer and at times can be slightly unrealistic.Sometimes my mind can go to places and I'm like where on earth did that come from.

What's the fastest cake in the world ? ........  Scone and when I've eaten it,it's scone :) 

So you could say I have a great sense of humour.I can be very childish sometimes but it makes me laugh so that's good ahah.


1-Get bored easily 
3-lack patience

All I can say is YES! I get bored so easily.

I can't agree with being careless and would say I worry to much to be careless.

Hmm lack patience.It would have to depend on what situation,I'm very patient with people and if I'm trying to do something and I can't,I might have a bit of a huff but I won't stop until it's done.

Sagittarius in a nut shell

"Sagittarius seem to be guided by luck, good things happen to Sagittarius and this is usually because of their optimistic outlook and positive disposition which attracts good fortune. Despite hardships, Sagittarius is always optimistic that good things will happen tomorrow and the future carries good luck. Sagittarius have a vibrant, expansive personality that is free like a bird, Sagittarius cannot be contained. They are full of curiosity and they always look forward to the future, never dwelling on the past. Sagittarius are detached from emotions because emotions hold a person back, they do not like to talk about their feelings, they simply experience them and move on. Sagittarius can be reckless and irresponsible because they will jump at a suggestion of something new before they weigh the advantages and disadvantages"

I do always try to be optimistic and look to the future,I'm a very curious person too.
I agree with some aspects with my zodiac sign.

I also use an app called Daily horoscopes,where I read my horoscope for the day. NOT AN ADD

Thank you to Ella for creating this fun post!

What star sign are you ?

Disneyland Paris at 20

Experiencing Disney land Paris as an adult has always been on my bucket list.I went to Disney as a child and wanted to relive the magical fairly land.

Earlier on this year,after much persuasion me and my sister headed of on the Eurostar and headed to Disney land.

On this day it was -3 degrees,you'd never have guessed as the whole trip, the castle was lit up by sunlight. It really is magical!

Some people have the theory that Disney is only for kids.Personally I think they're just being boring and don't have an imagination!

But as Walt Disney said "Adults are only grown up kids anyway".

The feeling of walking into the park and seeing the castle is magical.

There's something so overwhelming about being able to walk around carefree wearing sparkly Minnie Mouse  ears no matter what age.

I found my self with a constant smile on my face and feeling so fulfilled.

It's probably one of the only places on earth where you can sing,dance and skip around without a concern in the world.

The only bad thing about my trip was that 3 days wasn't enough and now I want to be Peter Pan and never grow up.

Being somewhere so happy and truly magical, puts everything into perspective and has given me the travel bug, I already had even more.

Wanderlust / a deep urge to travel 

If Disneyland Paris is on your bucket list I highly suggest booking a trip to have the most memorable happiest time of your life!

Who wants to come to Never Land with me ?

What's on your bucket list ?

13 Reasons Why / My Opinion

I was looking forward to the release of 13 reasons why on Netflix.

I've never read the book but I'd heard great things.I had also seen it advertised that Selena Gomes was executive producer.

13 reasons why is one of the best high school dramas,I've ever seen.

 I suggest that you watch the series first and then we can discuss your opinions too!

Also I'll add this isn't a review in any detail.Just my opinions.

It's really uncensored and the teens use "fuck" a lot.It shows a real representation of being in high school,although my school life was easy compared to Hannah's.

The show at times is extremely dark and contains some rape scenes which might be hard to watch for some viewers.

The dark nature helps it to be as realistic as it needs to be and it doesn't gloss over any details.

I binge watched the series and watched all episodes in 48hrs.

It's a great watch for Teenagers/young adults.

Summary :"Follows teenager Clay Jensen, in his quest to uncover the story behind his classmate and crush, Hannah, and her decision to end her life."

You'll be hooked in and probably in tears at some point throughout.

I highly recommend '13 reasons why'.
I also hope that their is another series as there is potential to be.

Have you watched the series ?

Who was your favourite character?
