Searching for Cottagecore movies to watch? Here are some of my favourite cosy and whimsical recommendations.
Howl’s Moving Castle (2004)
‘When Sophie, a shy young woman, is cursed with an old body by a spiteful witch, her only chance of breaking the spell lies with a self-indulgent yet insecure young wizard and his companions in his legged, walking castle.’
Tuck Everlasting (2002)
‘Teenager Winnie Foster is growing up in a small rural town in 1914 with her loving but overprotective parents, but Winnie longs for a life of greater freedom and adventure.
Kiki’s Delivery Service (1989)
“A young witch, on her mandatory year of independent life, finds fitting into a new community difficult while she supports herself by running an air courier service.”
Sometimes we come across a character whether that’s in a book, film or any other form, and that character inspires us to be a better version of ourselves.
Finding a character who makes you feel like you can be the best version of yourself is a great feeling. So here are some of my most inspiring fictional characters..
There was no way I could write a post about inspiring characters and not mention Anne from Anne of Green Gables. Anne teaches us to use our imagination, be okay with making mistakes, and to appreciate the little things in life.
This choice is probably a bit of a controversial one in the Gilmore Girls community. Sure, Rory makes mistakes and can be incredibly annoying. However, early-season Rory inspires me to read more, educate myself, and be a kind friend. While we are on the topic, are you team Dean, Jess, or Logan?
Éowyn is a fictional character in The Lord of the Rings. She’s unsatisfied with her life and decides to go about changing it herself to live the life she wants to. She’s the ultimate badass who rides into battle and kills the Lord of the Nazgûls, the Witch-King of Angmar once and for all. Éowyn doesn’t get as much credit as she deserves.
Being the younger sibling of Sherlock Holmes, it’s not surprising that Enola is smart, observant and has great sleuthing skills. She defies gender norms and set out to live her life the way that she wishes.
Beth is one of the four main protagonists in Little Women. All four of them are inspiring to me, but for this post, I decided just to mention Beth. She’s known for being musical and extremely pleasant. Although Beth is shy and quiet, she is also sweet, kind, honest and gentle.
Who wouldn’t be inspired by a kind, book loving girl who can move things with her mind? Matilda teaches people that kindness, friendship, and love are some of the most important things in life. Even in hard times, Matilda tries to see the positives and I think we can all take a little something from that.
Belle from Beauty and the Beast is another character who loves to read. She teaches us to see inner beauty and not fall for a pretty face. She’s also willing to sacrifice herself for her father which inspires us to be selfless and love the people around us.
No matter what Jane went through, she was always determined to live the life she deserved. Throughout her life she suffers quite a bit, but no matter what Jane finds a way to get back onto her feet and keep going. Jane is independent and knows what she deserves, and doesn’t settle for less. I think we should all live like that.
New Pokemon Snap is a relaxing and fun game for any Pokemon fan. In the game, players are tasked with helping Professor Mirror explore the islands of the Lental region. With your research camera at the ready, you become a Pokemon researcher who explores islands and takes photos of Pokemon in order to learn more about them and the way they live.
You are given unlimited access to the NEO-ONE which is a high tech vehicle that allows you to teleport and survive in all kinds of environments. You do not control the NEO-ONE as New Pokemon Snap is an on-rails game but believe me, you won’t feel restricted in this game at all.
I was never able to play the original Pokemon Snap when it was released back in 1999, so I didn’t feel the nostalgia that many others did when New Pokemon Snap was announced. That definitely doesn’t mean that I wasn’t excited though.
I’ve been a Marvel fan since 2014 when I watched Captain America: The Winter Soldier in the cinema. Before then, I had watched a few of the films but never really fully invested. After watching The Winter Soldier, I decided I wanted to learn more about the Marvel Universe. I did a little research and watched a few more of the earlier films. It was great!
Since then, I have invested more and more of my time into the Marvel Universe. I’ve watched most of the films and enjoyed them. However, I didn’t seem to remember every single detail.
That is why… I decided to rewatch every Marvel film.
Since rewatching all the films, I thought of some things that I felt I wanted to share. Hence, this blog post.
People online keep talking about comfort characters and I honestly love it. Finding a character who brings you happiness in that way is just so lovely. I was trying to work out who my comfort character was but I couldn’t just choose one.
So, I decided to try making an A-Z list of all my favourite characters. I feel like this might be easier than choosing just one comfort character.
So, here are my favourite characters from tv shows, films and games.
The online Animal Crossing communities can be so much fun. I absolutely love seeing what people have been working on for their island and seeing people having so much fun playing the game.
I know that sometimes the Animal Crossing Twitter community can be a little harsh but overall, it’s such a wonderful place. I do love to have a scroll though the #ACNH hashtag often though.
I found myself struggling a little when it came to thinking of area ideas to fill my island which is why I found myself scrolling through ideas online. I found some lovely area ideas so I thought that I would compile a list here on my blog so you all have some new ideas too.
So, if you’re looking for area inspiration for your island then look no further…
I’m pretty sure that you all know that I love Animal Crossing by now. It’s taking over my life and I’m not sorry at all. I’ve played for over 280 hours so far and I don’t plan on stopping any time soon.
I finally got a 5 star island just the other day so I’m still super excited about that too.
My mental health sucks right now. Lockdown is draining me and I feel like I’m stuck. Right now, my main way of making myself feel less glum is listening to some motivating, spirt lifting, happy, positive songs.
Music has a weird way of making you completely change your mood and it can even give you courage that you didn’t know that you had. That is why I think that music is more important than ever right now.
I’m not sure if your mental health sucks too but I do know that a positive and uplifting playlist is great all of the time. It’s just especially great when your mental health isn’t at it’s best.
