Step into my mind 30.04.16

Hi loves, Shreya here. I know it’s been a while and I’m so terribly sorry about being so inactive lately! It’s been partly because of school being stressful and partly because I had a major writers block, which usually doesn’t happen to me. I hope you are all well and excited for the weekend:) I haven’t done a ‘Step into my mind’ for a while so I thought I would rant on a bit today:) Please let me know if you enjoy these posts, I would appreciate it so much<3

Do you ever as yourself the question: Why am I here? As in, why am I on this amazing planet called the Earth and what is my purpose to live and breathe and go about my day to day activities? And no matter how much science tries to explain this, I still don’t understand WHY any living things are on the Earth…

Maybe I’m just crazy, and I admit that my thoughts my stray to the crazy side more than occasionally, but this question is always circling in my mind. Why can I think what I’m thinking? Why can I do what I want to do? Yes, I know. The nerves in my body send messages to my brain. Why do they do that?

Sometimes I feel like there is something bigger than the milky way, bigger than all the galaxies in space. Maybe the Sun isn’t as big as we say it is. Maybe the rest of the universe is so much bigger than what we have in perspective that we have no ways of finding out whats beyond our galaxy. The thought gives me chills down my spine and an urge to know what’s out there…

Hope that wasn’t too whacko for you guys…I can dig a little too deep sometimes and then get so lost in thought that I don’t know how to get myself safely back to reality.

Thank you all for always being so supportive of my blog and my thoughts…it means the world to me:) Happy Saturday!

The Rules:

  • Have fun!!

 

Questions:

Uh oh, not again! What’s a movie that you think is too predictable?

Cinderella

Cinderella_2015_official_poster

Ok, this was an extremely magical and fun movie but it was honestly a live action version of the original Cinderella movie from Disney! There was plot twist whatsoever which made it less captivating and very predictable.

 

I can’t believe I’m crying! What movie made you cry or lose it?

The Fault In Our Stars

fault-in-our-stars-movie-poster-full

I am going to have to agree with Rosypop on this one…I was completely drenched in tears when I walked out of the cinemas. It was so raw and pure yet such a damaged and problematic film.

 

Ah, the simplest things make me laugh! What’s a movie that even the smallest of comments in it make you crack up?

The Princess Diaries

FRxLfMpKpBHQBD_1_a

Ahh, my childhood. I absolutely adore every single minute of this movie! I just can’t help but laugh at everything that any character says. Specifically Joseph:)

“It’s in between a waltz and a tango.”

“It’s a wango?”😂💃

 

I don’t care of this movie is animated…I still love it! What’s an animated movie you love?

The Lion King 

the-lion-king-524fb69e8c273

I love every single Disney animated film from Up to Finding Nemo to The Little Mermaid! But, The Lion King definitely takes first place on this list!

 

I don’t care if this might not be possible in real life, I love this movie anyway! What’s a sci-fi movie that you love?

Harry Potter Series

Harry-potter-films

Harry Potter is basically my favourite series of movies of all time! I still believe that there is a possibility of it being real…

 

Ugh, this movie is awful! What movie did you not like at all?

I honestly can’t think of one right now! There have definitely been a few though…

 

What’s a romantic comedy that you really like?

The Proposal

Style: "9142_LA_Disney_The_Proposal_Light_Test_01"

Oh my gosh this movie left me in tears…of laughter! I honestly haven’t come across another actress who is as hilariously gorgeous as Sandra Bullock:)

 

What’s a movie that was made from a book you really like?

Divergent

A couple of years ago I had this crazy Divergent phase where I would read the books over and over again! When the movie came out, I was so excited!

 

Name a book that you wish they’d make into a movie.

The Selection

The-Selection

I absolutely loved this series…I would love for it to be made into a motion picture because of all the extravagant sets and costumes we would see.

 

What’s a great horror movie?

Never seen one! I saw the trailer for Annabelle and that was enough to scare me!

 

What’s a horror movie that you found more stupid than scary?

Refer to previous question!

 

Really, this is it? What movie were you highly disappointed with?

Inside Out

Disney-Pixar-Inside-Out-Movie-Poster

I was expecting this movie to amazing after it was nominated for multiple Academy Awards but it didn’t turn out to be as great as I thought it would.


 

So…here you go! I enjoyed doing this tag so much! It was  so nice to look back at my favourite movies and remember all my favourite moments:) Thank you again Rosypop for the nomination and I hope you enjoy reading this as much as enjoyed writing it!

Blueberry & Banana Bowls

Hi loves, happy Friday! How are you all? I know it has been so long since I’ve posted something and for this, I deeply apologise. School was crazy hectic the past month but now I finally have enough to do the things I love so much! (aka blogging) And for all the lovely people who have nominated me for tags/awards, they will be up very soon:)

So, for todays post I am sharing a recipe that I kinda just threw together…not literally. I was extremely bored and quite hungry so I just googled “recipes to try when bored”. Yes I know, sad life. After going through about a hundred recipes, I finally found one that I could substitute the ingredients for and make it my own! It is kind of my own twist on acai bowls because let’s be real – acai berries aren’t always available in your local supermarket or grocer. Hope you all love it and be sure to let me know if you try it out!


 

Ingredients:

  • ¾ cup frozen blueberries
  • ¼ cup almond milk
  • 1 banana
  • Honey
  • Toppings of choice (I used walnuts but any other nut, shredded coconut or granola would taste great)

 

Method:

  1. Blend together the blueberries and almond milk in a food processor
  2. Peel and cut banana into round circles or ‘banana pennies’ as some people say!
  3. Scoop blueberry mixture into a bowl and arrange the banana on top
  4. Go crazy with toppings!
  5. Drizzle some honey on top.


 

That’s it! There is really nothing to it which is why I love it, I hope you all will too:) Thank you all for your endless support, it really means a lot<3

Happy Friday and stay sweet loves!
