Ever since I started learning Korean, I've wanted to make a quote book of Disney quotes in Korean but since I discovered Weeve and the Weave method (foreign words weaved into English) I've found it better and more fun to not write the full quote in Korean.
I'm so excited to start this little project that I've been waiting to do for 9 years.
Starting with the princesses in order than move onto other classic Disney films.
(If only I could draw)

Highway to rock n roll!
Brian tells stories from his childhood to now.
He puts joy and passion into his life as well as his friends, family and band mates.
Also...knitted swimwear, if you know you know.

YAY I FOUND IT!
This was one of the reasons that I got into the paranormal, I remember believing most of the book and sad when i found out it was a hoax.
Going to enjoy rereading it after all these years

I haven't read anything about the paranormal in a decade or more.

Haunted Canterbury | John Hippisley
post image
Pickpick

I go to Canterbury a lot (also went to college there) and I knew it was haunted but not as haunted as the buildings I've walked past or went in.
Definitely seeing them in a new light and will be looking more into them.
The buildings are beautiful and give Canterbury bit more of a personality

Diana Ross has a heart of absolute gold and joy.
She writes with such power and she takes in every moment and treasures them.
I've never really been a big fan of hers but I will now listen to her voice a lot more.
She's a beaut.

When I was young I was almost obsessed with researching the paranormal.
I have always been open minded about everything but I remember I went to a one of my local pubs and experienced some ghostly stuff.
I've always flipped through these Caught on Film books and now that I've redecorated my library my books have reserved.
I've always been kinda skeptical about UFOs but love a good ghost picture or video.

Lovely little edition to celebrate the Queens Jubliee.
There's a timeline in the back of facts on Queen Elizabeth and the pages have crowns down them and silver on the outside pages.

I really enjoyed this!
I liked how instead of each part is a biography of a wife, it's the wives coming into the story.
