Favourite Sleepover Memories


I was writing a different post where I started listing some of my favourite moments from sleepovers and I really liked it so I figured I’d write a separate post about it. I’m probably going to have to bullet point a lot of my memories and it may not make complete sense but I still wanted a little document of my favourite moments. Enjoy!

– Girl’s Night when I figured you just had to whack on a face mask but Becca said there were more steps than that. We ended up on the landing with bowls of boiling hot water and towels to steam our faces. I didn’t realise I was meant to close my eyes and nearly burnt them off. Then we watched ’10 Things I Hate about You’ and some of ‘Clueless’ until we just had to sit around talking until stupid o’clock in the morning.

– The nights me, Becca and Hirst watched horror movies and absolutely pooed ourselves. There was the time at Becca’s where we ate our weight in chicken nuggets and then watched Insidious. Becca was so creeped out she carried a knife around the house with her for the rest of the night. And the night they slept at mine and we watched ‘Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones’ and ‘The Conjuring’ and absolutely peed our pants at every little thing. Becca was sat in the middle and by the end of each movie me and Hirst were proper cuddled into her.

– The first night my parents went away and left me, Becca and Jess in the house by ourselves. We stayed up all night and things got a little weird around the 4AM mark. It was officially a ‘Supernatural’ night as we were watching Season 5 but after the first couple of episodes it was more background noise as we messed around. Becca kind of lost her mind at 4AM and was rolling around on the floor, laughing manically and generally making weird comments whilst Jess perched on the end of my sofa crying that she was either going to give birth or lay an egg. At 6AM we decided to walk to McDonalds and get breakfast, staggered home afterwards and collapsed asleep at 8AM.

– ‘Marvel Night’ where me, Becca and Jess planned to watch our favourite Marvel movies but didn’t actually watch a single one because we were too busy watching a puppy cam all night.

– Halloween when Becca’s Dad played that prank on us (as told here) and we all picked parts in the horror movies we were watching. We then ended up playing catch at about 4AM and I got creeped out standing by the back door in case Jason from ‘Friday the 13th’ suddenly appeared.

– The night Jess’ phone alarm went off but no one knew where it was coming from and Becca practically emptied her bag to try and find it and stuck her head in and yelled “JESUS IS THAT YOU!?” It’s one of those moments that doesn’t sound funny but was truly hilarious at the time.

– After we’d watched ‘The Conjuring’ Becca and Hirst slept on my floor and Becca whispered “Hollie I don’t wanna creep you out but it looks like the girl from The Conjuring is on top of your wardrobe.” Her and Hirst then proceeded to wave their hands around going ‘look, don’t this look weird!’

– ‘Superman Super Night’ where we watched all the original Superman movies – third one was the best, Lana was way better than Lois Lane could aspire to be.

– The first time I ever slept at Hirst’s house aged about 20 and we were all desperate to go to sleep but Hirst’s Mom came into her room and kept showing me and Becca photos of bald men she thought were attractive.

– The night me, Becca and Jess were on Omegle and got serenaded by some guy with a guitar.

– When we’d switched the lights off but none of us were ready for bed so everyone started making shadow puppets with the light from someone’s phone. Becca also practiced the crab even though she hates other people doing it.

– I can’t remember if it was the same night but Hirst rolled over and snorted so for some reason me, Becca and Jess assumed she was possessed. Becca flicked water on her even though it would’ve been ineffective as it was just normal water. We took a photo of her to make sure she wasn’t pranking us.

– Disney Movie Night where we watched about three Disney movies. Sam fell asleep early on and was not disturbed for the rest of the night. I tried to go to sleep but couldn’t because Becca and Jess wouldn’t stop whispering – Becca was genuinely whispering whereas Jess talked in a stage whisper so it was impossible to sleep. In the end the three of us got up and went on Omegle while Sam continued to sleep.

– Pretty much every time we played blind man’s bluff, I absolutely loved that game.

– The night me and Jess stayed up dancing and doing K-Pop quizzes and only decided that maybe it was bed time when her Dad got up to go to work.

– New Year’s Eve when I slept at Becca’s and she introduced me to Buzzfeed Unsolved. We played games with her family, watched a couple more episodes then got into bed. Then I was immediately creeped out by that witch episode.

I’m sure there are tons more but I can’t think of them off the top of my head at the moment! Unfortunately we don’t have as many sleepovers anymore because our shifts are all different and it’s just harder to commit to that. But I love it when we do eventually meet up to have a sleepover and I love all our sleepover memories!

The Marvel Tag


To celebrate that the new Avengers film is out soon I figured I’d do a Marvel tag! I don’t really talk much about my love for Marvel, mainly because I’ve never really thought of a post idea that could fit in with that but also partly because I didn’t need any nerd-bros slipping into my DM’s about how I’m not a true fan because I don’t read the comic books. Anyway, let’s get into the tag!

1. Favourite Movie?

I am always in the mood to watch Avengers Assemble to be honest with you, it’s the movie that got me into Marvel and super hero films in general. It was just such a good movie and it’s weird now thinking that we all got hyped to see what, six super heroes together, when now we’re counting down the days until Infinity War when there are gonna be absolutely tons of super heroes all fighting together. It’s mad.

Avengers Assemble

2. Favourite Character?

It changes all the time and I know my friend Becca is going to kill me but probably Bucky Barnes. Back when I’d only seen ‘Avengers Assemble’ and all the ‘Iron Man’ films I used to slag off Captain America a lot and stick up for Iron Man but after going to the Captain America triple bill when Captain America: Civil War came out I swapped and preferred Captain America to Iron Man (to which Becca always calls me a traitor). After watching the Captain America films I quickly started loving Bucky who was also Becca’s favourite character – I’m serious, in college the girl genuinely called me ‘Bucky’ instead of ‘Buddy’ more than once. But yeah, my favourite’s Bucky regardless of whether Becca thinks I’m a traitor or not!

3. MCU OTP’s

I don’t really have any – I hate the idea of Nat and the Hulk, like did they seriously compare Nat not being able to have kids to the fact that Bruce literally turns into a giant green monster? Really? Even if you bring in Black Widow’s past the two of them aren’t really the same at all and I just thought it was an irritating comparison. I also hate Wanda and Vision like that’s just grim, what the hell?

4. Who deserves their own movie?

Normally I’d say Black Widow ‘cos like feminism and I just generally once upon a time thought it would’ve been good but now I’m not really a fan of Scarlett Johansson and I just can’t get quite as hyped about it as I could before. I think Scarlet Witch having her own movie would be good but that won’t happen. I’m so glad Black Panther got his own movie and that it was amazing!

5. Favourite MCU film score?

Honestly I’ve never thought about it before. Probably ‘Avengers Assemble’ though, the score is wicked.

6. What future film are you most excited for?

Lame but I’m gonna have to say Infinity War. I know it’s a boring answer but it’s so close and I’m just so excited to finally see it. Other than that I’m also looking forward to Deadpool 2.

7. Which MCU character is most like you?

Me and my friends always play games where we assign each other characters but these can often be based on weird things – for example Hirst was always Thor ‘cos of her blonde hair. So I’m not really sure. Maybe Wanda because she just wants to do the right thing and feels really guilty when she messes up – I do generally try to do the right thing and I have a massive guilty conscience so yeah, I’ll go with Wanda.

8. Would you want to be Xandarian, a Frost Giant, Asgardian or stay Terran?

I really loved Thor Ragnarok so you know what I’d 100% wanna be an Asgardian. Also Asgard looks a lot nicer than Earth so like, why not?


9. The Avengers or Guardians of the Galaxy?

I liked Guardians of the Galaxy a lot more than I thought I would but I’m gonna have to go for the Avengers of course.

10. Which MCU character would you want to be friends with?

Thor so I could visit Asgard and he would just generally be a great person to be friends with.

11. Favourite MCU actor?

Tom Hiddleston – I had a crush on him as a teenager but kind of got over it but now after watching Ragnarok I’m back on my crush again. Whoops!

12. Baby Groot or Big Groot?

Baby Groot obviously! Who wouldn’t pick Baby Groot?

I hope you’re all as hyped for Avengers Infinity War as much as I am and that you enjoyed the tag!
