On the 12th April 2016, my little blog meganmonroes officially turned a year old! I can’t believe that it’s been a whole 365 days since I wrote my first post which started my blog, well credit to my amazing friends Laura and Paul for setting it all up! I’ve been blogging on Tumblr for almost five years and I’d always wanted to take the plunge and become a Blogger and thanks to lovely Laura inspiring me, I finally had the courage!
It’s amazing to look back and see how much has changed in one whole year, I wouldn’t say it’s been all that pleasant but I’ve definitely learnt and grown from the changes that have happened. Of course, it’s not all been that bad, but as I’m my worst critic I can sadly make things a lot harder for myself – I really need to work on that.
I know I’ve been an awful Blogger lately, I just sadly haven’t had much inspiration, but I really hope I can continue to be creative and have an even more successful year with meganmonroes! There’s a few products I’m dreaming of reviewing and hopefully I’ll be able to get my hands on them as soon as possible:
If anyone has tried these products before than please let me know what you thought of them, I’d love to hear your opinions!
I also thought I’d write about things I’m especially loving at the moment, it’s important to remember the things that can put a smile on your face:
Rewatching Game of Thrones – I’m currently on Season 3 Episode 3, I thought it would be a good idea to refresh my memory before Season 6 arrives! Daenerys and Tyrion are still my favourite characters, that hasn’t changed.
A Cup of tea – sometimes that’s all you need to cheer you up.
Reality TV – yes I know a lot of it’s trashy but it’s so addictive! Plus it’s nice to forget about your own troubles and switch off every now and then.
Em akamypaleskinblog– It’s safe to say I look forward to Em’s videos every Wednesday, she’s so beautiful inside and out and is truly an inspiration to me as a Blogger and more importantly as a person. Love you Em!
Reading – I absolutely adore a good book, there’s something so satisfying about completing a book and starting a new one.
Ebay – I’m absolutely obsessed with doing my regular searches each day, (Marilyn is my main one of course) and finding a bargain, (anything under £5) is my current way of controlling the spending and being frugal.
Snapchat – You can find me there by meganmonroes, I look forward to seeing the new filters each day and will never get tired of face swapping with Marilyn or today, Grace Kelly!
As this is my first post I thought a little introduction about myself would be a good start. So here’s what you might like to know about little me!
My url is only 50% my real name, you can probably guess where I got Monroe from, No? Well it’s from Marilyn of course. She is the most beautiful person inside and out and has helped me a lot the past four years, which I’m sure I’ll talk about at some point. The S is just to make it a bit different..
My favourite film is, Gone With The Wind (1939) I adore the classics!
Marilyn Monroe is my favourite actress, I’ve seen all of her films numerous times, have a Tumblr and IG account on her (both alwaysmarilynmonroe) and have hundreds of (good) books about my girl. It would be an understatement to say I love her, as she means so much more to me than that.
I’m only around five foot two inches.
I’ve suffered with various mental illnesses including; Depression, Anxiety, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
I love to read, especially biographies on my favourite stars.
I adore animals, I have two dogs and one cat.
I’m a Scorpio – I don’t really follow Astrology signs but I think it’s something fun to share!
I’ve always wanted to share my birthday with a celebrity I love and I found out recently I share mine with Emilia Clarke aka Daenerys Targaryen!
Although my heart belongs to the bygone era, I do have some modern loves too which include; Friends, Modern Family, Game Of Thrones, The Big Bang Theory, Breaking Bad, House Of Cards, Lana Del Rey, Margot Robbie, Michelle Williams, Harrison Ford and Leonardo Dicaprio.
I’m a Twin.
I love weak Tea.
I am a huge lover of lipstick, red is a must.
Although I can’t speak another language, I do love Foreign Films and hope to learn some day.
My favourite females from Old Hollywood include; Marilyn Monroe, Veronica Lake, Sharon Tate, Brigitte Bardot, Vivien Leigh, Rita Hayworth, Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Anita Ekberg, Jayne Mansfield, Diana Dors, Elizabeth Taylor and Sophia Loren.
My favourite males from Old Hollywood include; Clark Gable, Marlon Brando, Gregory Peck, Robert Mitchum, Marlon Brando, James Stewart, Fred Astaire, Montgomery Clift and Cary Grant.
Billy Wilder and Alfred Hitchcock are my favourite Directors.
I hate conspiracies, they are just unnecessary.
My favourite music is from the 1960s, The Beatles, Sam Cooke, The Platters are some close to my heart.
I try and be as honest and understanding as I can.
I adore Disney, you’re never too old for it.
I always cut clippings from magazines.
Floral fifties style dresses are my favourite.
Although I think they’re beautiful, I don’t have many pairs of shoes. I hate having to get my feet used to them, I’m all about comfort and when the occasion calls for it my go to heels.
Hair accessories are my thing, a flower or a bow always brightens you up and gives you a Pin Up Girl style.
I’m a 90s Kid!
I have a youtube channel which I use every now and then, meganmonroes.
Pizza is my favourite food!
Chanel No.5 is my signature scent.
That’s all I can think of for now, I hope I didn’t bore you and you’ve learnt a bit about me! Until next time!
