Blogging Hiatus



Hi guys, as some of you may know I found out I was pregnant last August. Between now and then I have discovered the ups and downs of pregnancy and then came the waiting time of labor. I had many reservations about what is going to happen and whether I should just opt for a C- Section since my pain tolerance is so low but I decided to just try a natural birth anyways since being induced has its own kind of pain. It happened. I gave birth to a baby boy on 04/04/18. The labor was nothing like I have ever experienced I am still a little shaken even though it has been a week but it ended up being a traumatic one. I had a lot of stitches done since the tear was quite deep and along with other things (I am not ready to share them yet but maybe one day) it's going to take me a while to fully recover. I am going to take some time off blogging and social media and concentrate on my health first before anything else. Just in case any of you are wondering my family is helping me taking care of the baby.


I hope you guys understand and have a lovely weekend.


Until next time,

Waiting on Wednesday: These Rebel Waves

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


Title: These Rebel Waves
Author: Sara Raasch
Series: Stream Raiders #1
Release Date: 7th August 2018
Synopsis:

Adeluna is a soldier. Five years ago, she helped the magic-rich island of Grace Loray overthrow its oppressor, Argrid, a country ruled by religion. But adjusting to postwar life has not been easy. When an Argridian delegate vanishes during peace talks with Grace Loray’s new Council, Argrid demands brutal justice—but Lu suspects something more dangerous is at work.

Devereux is a pirate. As one of the outlaws called stream raiders who run rampant on Grace Loray, he pirates the island’s magic plants and sells them on the black market. But after Argrid accuses raiders of the diplomat’s abduction, Vex becomes a target. An expert navigator, he agrees to help Lu find the Argridian—but the truth they uncover could be deadlier than any war.

Benat is a heretic. The crown prince of Argrid, he harbors a secret obsession with Grace Loray’s forbidden magic. When Ben’s father, the king, gives him the shocking task of reversing Argrid’s fear of magic, Ben has to decide if one prince can change a devout country—or if he’s building his own pyre.

As conspiracies arise, Lu, Vex, and Ben will have to decide who they really are . . . and what they are willing to become for peace.

For most people, nightmares always come to an end. But for Cata, Ant, and the others, there may be no escape from theirs.

Movie Review: My Little Pony


Movie Details:
Title: My Little Pony
Release Date: 24th September 2017
Cast: Uzo Aduba, Ashleigh Ball, Emily Blunt, Kristin Chenoweth, Taye Diggs, Andrea Libman, Michael Peña, Zoe Saldana, Liev Schreiber, Sia, Tabitha St. Germain, Tara Strong, Cathy Weseluck
Rating: 3/5
Synopsis:

Twilight Sparkle, Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy and Rarity embark on an epic journey to save Ponyville from a dark force. Along the way, the Mane 6 meet new friends and face exciting challenges as they travel beyond Equestria to defeat the evil Storm King and his minion unicorn -- Tempest Shadow.

Okay so I know I am not a child but watching anime's and cartoons were a huge part in my life growing up so although I may have grown up on the outside my insides are still a child. I also can't wait for my baby to be born and grow up (if its not born by the time this post is scheduled) to the age where they understand what they see so I can introduce them to a world full of cartoons. I am aware that young children are fond of watching that anyways, I used to have sit and watch programmes like Mr Tumble and In the Night Garden with my niece which would put me to asleep but she loved to watch them 😴😴😴.

I am an avid watcher of My Little Pony ever since it first aired on tv and I am not ashamed to admit that I watched all 7 seasons and I am eagerly awaiting season 8 (come March already). So I know Twilight Sparkle and her friends, I also love the fact that Twilight Sparkle loves to read and is a bookworm by heart so the fact I get to mix my two favourite hobbies in one is absolute a dream come true. Twilight Sparkle resonates with me.

I thought this movie would be totally different to the seasons (you know how it is sometimes with cartoons) but it wasn't like that. I felt like I was watching an hour length episode which made it hard to like the movie. Just like in the series, Twilight and her friends are organising and preparing for a festival that will take place in Canterlot, since Twilight is a bit of a perfectionist she likes to make sure everything is perfect. However, the happy festivities are interrupted by the arrival of a ship which is where we meet Tempest Shadow (what a name, I really love some of the names in this series). The journey begins to save Equestria and Twilight from being captured.

One theme which I always admire about this series in particular is how they have friendship lessons so no matter how much you think you know you actually realise you still have a lot to learn. The creators really stuck with this theme and so there is a lesson to be learned for Twilight and her friends.

I am a fan of Sia's singing so to know they included her in this movie was a cherry on top of my ice cream sundae. I love how her vocals are very different and speaks to your soul, her song "Rainbow" is one of my favourites. 

The animation and the vast actors in the movie is probably the only thing that salvaged this movie, I wanted the movie to be on my top 10 for 2017 but sadly that didn't happen. A lot of critics agree that although the creators wanted to go big and epic on this film they sadly failed to do that even though the promotion for this movie promised big things.
