Jonathan Ross on the best moments in life

Paraphrased from Jonathan Ross’s book: Why do I say these things:

People often ask “What makes a man a success?” but perhaps a better question to ask for when you are lying on your deathbed is: “What moments from your life do you remember most fondly?”

1.) For me (Jonathan Ross), it’s not the time I met the Queen or had dinner with David Bowie, in spite those being lovely experiences. It has nothing to do with fame or even family. No, it is the moment I discovered I could do a forward roll. I find myself thinking of it and smiling probably once a week even though it was decades ago. You see, I had already harboured great ambitions to be a superhero and this seemed to me a very necessary and valuable first step in that direction. Sometimes I try to replicate that moment today. I often throw myself on the bed in a peculiar way which my wife has learned to ignore.

2.) Jumping on and off a moving old London Routemaster bus – getting the judgement of speed etc just right.

Oh so girly! Cute Girls Products Blog

Hey guys!

I’m really excited about a new venture I’ve just started with my friend Julia! It’s a blog called Oh So Girly where we share our finds of “things girls like”, from cute & kawaii things, to pink girly girl gifts and everything in between.

It’s quite cool because we get to broaden our creativity by writing articles on things like home decor which means we get to try our hands at interior design; and we also get to feel inspired by seeing a bunch of beautiful designs and girly things that other creative people out there are making!

If you like girly stuff feel free to check out our blog! ^_^

“Love is like a fart if you have to force it, it’s probably sh*t”

do it yourself

Having someone do certain things for you is like getting someone to chew your food for you.

It might be easier to swallow but it loses all its flavour.
And it will be covered in spit.
And you want the flavour!
