Blog Appreciation Post (BAP)- Get your baps out!
Recently through various Meet n Greets, Link Parties, Reblogs, Follow for Follows etc, I have come to appreciate the efforts of lots of bloggers who have used their time and posts to promote other blogs and bring the blogging community closer together. I have decided to play my part by creating this BAP, which I hope bloggers will use to share some things about themselves so we can all know each other a bit better, as well as helping out more bloggers. As Christmas is getting closer, there is a bit of a festive end to the post! 🙂
3 Facts about Yourself that you’re followers might not know…
1 : I enjoy painting landscapes (acrylic), though I haven’t done one for quite a while.
2 : I also do a bit of baking, mainly chocolate chip cookies (if I haven’t already eaten the cookie dough!). They call me the next Paul Hollywood haha
3 : One day I’d like to write a fantasy novel. I have made plans for some of it, though it is many years from being finished. It is inspired by Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Chronicles of Narnia, Dark Materials, Game of Thrones and Percy Jackson.
First Ever Post

The First Classic Special of my Short Film Ratings | 23 September, 2015
I have decided to watch more films that are from the Golden Age of Hollywood and are considered classics of that time. This is the first post in which I have reviewed some classic films including Citizen Kane and Rear Window. The next edition will include for certain Psycho and A Rebel Without a Cause. I have also developed an obsession for Grace Kelly…
