Begin at the beginning and go on till you come to the end: then stop....

My name is Samantha, I'm British, I've spent the last four years living in Ohio, USA but I'm now back in England. I have a love of movie musicals (I am currently in complete awe of "Les Miserables"), novelty socks, snow globes and pirates. I am prone to spontaneous bursts of fangirling and I have an unwavering adoration for Michael J. Fox and Gene Kelly movies and I'm a lover of cheesy films and theater soundtracks. I have an adorable pug called Mabel, who is a beautiful and flawless little scamp. In 2011 we lost our gorgeous puggy princess Doris who I loved with all my heart. I adore reading and books are my indulgence. My favorite pop group of all time is The Monkees and my current television obsessions are Galavant, The Living & the Dead, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, Penny Dreadful, Call the Midwife, In the Flesh, Humans, Once Upon A Time in Wonderland, Doctor Who, Merlin, Downton Abbey, Supernatural, The Goldbergs and The Walking Dead. Oh, and my heart pretty much belongs to Todd Grimshaw from Corrie. I am a self confessed geek and i have a soft spot for all that is dorky or retro. I have a passion for fairy tales and my guilty pleasures are Disney movies and ice cream. I can't swim or whistle, I hate mushrooms, spiders, e-reader's and people who are ignorant. I am known to ramble and post random piffle and I do have a weakness for haphazard picspams and odd lists.
I'm always happy to accept new friends but I do ask that we at least have something in common. ♥

"It is with the reading of books the same as with looking at pictures;
one must, without doubt, without hesitations, with assurance, admire what is beautiful."
~ Vincent van Gogh


"A children's story that can only be enjoyed by children
is not a good children's story in the slightest."
~ C.S Lewis

“Which road do I take?"
"Where do you want to go?"
"I don't know," Alice answered.

~ Michael J. Fox

"Fairy tales do not tell children the dragons exist.
Children already know that dragons exist.
Fairy tales tell children the dragons can be killed"
~ G. K. Chesterton

"I am a princess. All girls are. Even if they live in tiny old attics.
Even if they dress in rags, even if they aren't pretty, or smart, or young.
They're still princesses. All of us.."
~ A Little Princess - Frances Hodgson Burnett
