Beyoncé to star in The Lion King and 6 celebrities I want to see in Disney remakes

Move over, Simba, there’s a new Queen of the Pride Land and her name is Beyoncé. Well, possibly. Straight from the rumour mill, it has been tipped that the top choice to star in Disney’s live action remake of The Lion King is Queen B herself. With the franchise being so popular as a Disney classic and a broadway/west-end show, Beyoncé and The Lion King would be an incredible decision.

A source has been whispering into the ears of the press that Beyoncé is director Jon Favreau’s first choice to voice Nala in the remake which is currently in process. However, insiders have stressed that the Formation singer has yet to make a decision regarding the film yet, due to her being kinda busy being pregnant with twins.

Personally, I would love to see her take on a Disney role. I am a big fan of Queen B and Disney, so for me this is a match made in heaven. However, I’m fully aware of the responsibilities of a new baby mama, so whether or not she will agree to the role is another thing, considering the film is set to be in production pretty soon.

Disney have recently announced a bucket full of remakes, so there’s a lot of casting to be done! I thought I’d help out and pick some potential candidates for certain roles…

Ariana Grande as Ariel (The Little Mermaid)

We already know she can rock the red hair and she has an incredible voice to be able to take on the song Part of Your World. Ariana is killing it right now, so a movie such as this under her belt would be perfect. She’s already taken on roles in kids’ TV Shows (Victorious, Sam & Cat), so she has younger fans, too. I’d love to see her donning a fishtail and lending her voice to the evil Ursula in a trade for her to become human.

My 2016 Favourites

Can you believe another year has come to an end? Because I can’t. I feel like everytime I blink, a whole 12 months has passed by. Insane. I’ve discovered a lot of things this year, so of course I’m going to do a post dedicated to them and rave about my love for these favourites.

Books

Tanya Bakes by Tanya Burr

tanya-bakes

This is Tanya’s second book release. With the popularity proven with the baking chapter of her first book, ‘Love Tanya’, and major love shown for her baking videos, Tanya released this gorgeous book full of amazing recipes which are not too complicated and caters for her entire audience, both young and old. I tried a few recipes with my mother and I highly enjoyed making her  ‘Sunday Cake’ which was adorable to read about an old tradition. There are other recipes from her friends and family which really makes this book so personal. I can’t wait to try making other treats.

Our World by Little Mix

our-world

To be given the insight of life in one of the world’s biggest girl groups of this decade is really interesting. Keeping it real and not over glorifying the glitz and glam that fame brings, Jesy, Perrie, Leigh-Anne and Jade share a view of the world through their eyes. What’s really worth commending is that the girls don’t shy away from the struggles they face. Though their face on billboards and their music played worldwide, The 2011 X Factor winners are still very much down to Earth and openly discuss struggles they’ve faced that many of their fans can relate to. I highly enjoyed this book and getting to know the girls on a more personal level. Another enjoyable aspect is that they talk to the fans as if they are on the same level, rather than talking down as if they are more superior, which is always highly appreciated by fans.

Beauty

LUSH’s Rub Rub Rub Shower scrub

Rub Rub Rub

When my friend, Lily, introduced me to this scrub, I was blown away. More so by the fact that it is an amazing alternative to typical shampoo and conditioner. It washes my hair so well and gives it a lot of volume. If you want gorgeous beach babe hair, this product used in the shower is amazing. I cannot get enough of it!

10 songs to help you get over a broken heart

heartbreak-songs

 

As a twenty-something year old, it’s no surprise for me to get heartbreaks. True, I am a demisexual, but we also get our hearts broken, too. Just maybe not as much.

I don’t like to talk about personal relationships publicly or on blogs as I like to keep it within a circle of friends and maybe family. But, recently I’ve ended up broken hearted and pretty upset. Like I said, details aren’t needed but I’ve needed something to rely on without keeping on to my friends constantly about how I feel. I don’t want to bring it up all the time. So, I created a pretty big playlist with an explicit name to get my pain out. While there’s a hell of a lot of songs on there, I thought I’d pick out some of my favourites to share with you for either when you have heartbreak of your own or just love listening to music.

1. Send My Love (To Your New Lover) – Adele

Adele understands heartbreak and captures the emotions perfectly in her songs. This one doesn’t get you crying into your pillow while eating tubs of ice cream, but rather singing along on the top of your lungs as if you’re confronting your former flame with utmost confidence and happy vibes because you’re better than them.

2. Shoutout To My Ex – Little Mix

If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you’ll know all about my love for Little Mix and this song even featured in my October Monthly Favourites. The girls describe this as a ‘happy breakup song’ and I totally agree. Even if you don’t have an ex partner to relate this to, they don’t specify what the ‘ex’ stands for, so it could be an ex crush, ex friend with benefit, whatever the reason you ex’d them out of your life, this song is perfect.

3. Stadium – Camryn

This song is by my friend, Camryn and I really feel like I can relate to this one. It’s an emotional song, but it’s not really slow and it’s telling that someone they’re now all alone in their stadium because you, their number one fan, has left the building. *snaps fingers*

4. You Don’t Know Love – Olly Murs

Olly Murs. What a babe. He’s written some real corkers when it comes to singles and this one really is one you can sing along to and even if you’re hurting, you can enjoy singing along and getting those emotions out through getting powerful with those vocals.

5. Heartless – Kanye West

This is basically the only Kanye song I like. It used to play on ‘Tiny Pop’ when I was a kid and it was kind of catchy. Now I feel like it’s one I can just play when I’m getting low vibes and just listen to when I’m lying down in bed or writing. No words needed, just sit and let the song play.

6. Since U Been Gone – Kelly Clarkson

This iconic song had to be included because Kelly, girl, you sum it up so well and the tune is a jam. Grab your hair brush and sing into it like the pop star you totally could be.

7. Best Thing I Never Had – Beyoncé

This is probably the one that best explains my situation and experience. It does bring on a tear or two but knowing someone as empowering and inspiring as Beyoncé has felt this kind of pain but can come out of the other side and leads the march of moving on for all broken hearted lovers to be able to get through the other side.

8. Hair – Little Mix

Another one by Little Mix but how could I not include this? It’s such a great tune to sing along to either alone or with your friends as you start your journey of moving on with your life and starting a new chapter.

9. Really Don’t Care – Demi Lovato ft Cher Lloyd

Demi has such a fantastic attitude in this song. It’s the attitude you aspire to achieve and emotion you intend to reach after the pain you feel. Plus, it’s really fun to rap Cher’s bridge.

10. Don’t – Ed Sheeran

I really love this song because Ed is such a lyrical genius and this is another great one to jam to. And just a reminder to anyone – don’t f*** with my or Ed’s love. Got it?

What songs do you feel are the perfect heartbreak songs? Comment below and I may add them to my playlist!
