My Top Ten Feel Good Tunes

I don't know about anyone else, but I feel like I've been through the mill of late - I had both a sickness bug and a cold at the same time around Mother's Day, and still feel a bit lacking in the energy department, So I thought what better way to cheer myself up with a run down of my favourite feel good tunes. I hope you'll all join in and share yours below as well. The sun's come out so let's banish the bugs and make some feel good playlists.

1. Walking On Sunshine - One of my favourite summer tunes which I grew up with, and I absolutely love dancing around to this track. Just full of positive vibes.

2. Living On A Prayer - I'm a bit of an American Anthems/Soft Rock junkie, and this is one of Bon Jovi's classics. Perfect to wake me up of a morning.

3. Reach For The Stars - I've always loved my pop music, so see no shame in admitting I also used to listen to S Club 7 a lot - and I used to do the dance routine for the chorus as well!!

4. China In Your Hand - T-Pau classic, and although not uptempo - I think everyone needs a soaring ballad in their lives, and a beautiful song is great therapy.

5. Matt Cardle - Hit My Heart - Very recent this choice, but it's just so damn catchy it had to make the list.

6. Man In The Mirror - MJ was another artist I grew up listening to, and although funnily enough I only bought a couple of albums after he died - this is one of my favourite songs of all time - and favourite songs always make me feel good.

7. Don't Stop Believing - I only recently got into Journey through hearing a band cover this track, but was instantly hooked. The Greatest Hits album is full of musical goodness, but I love this anthem the best. A song that never gets old.

8. Celebration - Kool and the Gang - I danced to a very funky version of this in a school P.E production and ever since have got a buzz from hearing it. Great vibes and lyrics.

9. Sweet Little Mystery- Wet Wet Wet - Bit of a theme here, as this is another track I grew up with thanks to my parents CD collection, and I can't resist singing along to the infectious lyrics. If I'm skipping tracks this is the Wet Wet Wet track I keep coming back too.

10. Written In The Stars - Although my music loves tend to be more commercial they do veer all over the place, including some R&B. Tinie Tempah has done a great job all round on this track, one for my playlist when I fancy a good groove.

Well that's my feel good playlist, and I am already feeling a little bit better thinking of all the tracks. Would love to hear what music makes you feel good. Feel free to leave a comment below, and if you like my blog you can find me on Blog Lovin - just click the link to the right.

The Christmas Holiday By Phillipa Ashley Book Review

I apologise now for any or all mentions of the word Christmas in this blog post, but with a lot going on in life and work I just have to go with whatever calls to me in my reading pile, which this time was The Christmas Holiday by Phillipa Ashley.  Released last year, this book will always have a special place in my bookish heart because I helped with some crafting inspiration for it, and to see my name in the credits of this paperback is something I will always treasure. I was so excited to see how and where my ideas were used, but managed to control my impatience and not skip any pages. Although I have been a member of Phillipa's Facebook group for a while, this is my first read of hers  (have another in my reading pile) so I opened this book with a mix of anticipation and a slight fear of the unknown - I really wanted to love the book I helped with! And love it I did. It made a refreshing change to read a novel set in the Lake District, and also one which wasn't just a stere

Hobbycraft Lino Printing Online Workshop Review

 One of the things that has been great to see now we have come through the worst of the Covid pandemic, has been companies continuing with the online activities they launched during the lockdowns. Hobbycraft now offer a wide range of workshops online and in-store through the year, and I recently took part in an online lino printing workshop, so I thought I'd blog a bit more about what's on offer and the workshop I took part in. What workshops are on offer?  These vary through the year, and can involve seasonal, adults, and kid's workshops in-store and online. If you click on the workshops you are interested in finding out more about, you can find out about what's included in the price, what you'll learn, and the available workshop dates, there's also the opportunity to request private events for groups. While I'm writing this, there are workshops on Cricut, watercolour painting, knitting, paint pouring, seasonal wreath making, using clay, sewing, and a new

Hocus Pocus 2 Film Review

Halloween is one of my favourite times of year for films, and I've loved all the witch and wizard magical, spooky-themed films since I was young. I was really looking forward to seeing Hocus Pocus 2, but I had no idea what to expect from the sequel. Would they pick up where they left off in 1993, move on a bit but with a strong connection to the original, or do something completely different? This Disney + release turned out to be the latter, and I found myself watching a modern-day Salem on screen. The old town is now a 'historic district' which has the air of a novel tourist attraction, complete with a mystical magic shop which presents the story of Salem and the Sanderson Sisters as some kind of commercial entertainment enterprise - hear the story, buy some magical merch.  The detail in Gilbert's shop and his stage show presentation are very apt for the modern day, and the feeling that the Sanderson sister's legend has become less powerful and more humorous myth
