Touchy, Feely, Squeezy: Musings of a Masseuse - Mandy Urena (book review)

Touchy, Feely, Squeezy: Musings of a Masseuse by Mandy Urena is not my usual type of book to read as a non-fiction book. However, this book really appealed to me as someone who loves to go to a masseuse myself.

This book is about Mandy and how she started to become a masseuse as well as all of the adventures she has had due to being a massage therapist. Also going into loads of different styles of massage and how she ended up massaging rockstars, those with cancer and so much more.

This is a great non-fiction which did make me laugh at times throughout the novel and left me feeling happy, however there is parts which is more heartfelt and has a great pace to the book. I loved also how at the start of every chapter there was quotes from various people which was a really good way to get into the chapter. Also with the chapters all having names such as: What do you do if a guy gets a woody? (and other unusual questions), The penis monologues, Energy massage and the uninvited poltergeist and many more I thought was a great touch for the novel.

I would highly recommend this book to people who like massages, the masseuse themselves and those who are looking for something a little different to read. This is one of the best non-fiction books I have ever personally read!! I only wish there was more for me to read!!

Sahara (film review) *contains spoilers*

Film: Sahara Year: 2017 Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy Directed By: Pierre Core Starring: Omar Sy, Louane Emera, Franck Gastambide About:  A young cobra and his scorpion best friend go on a journey across the Sahara desert to save a new-found love Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3IRkT9JsqM My Review: Having a movie day I came across Sahara when on Netflix and having no expectations about this film and also not knowing what it was about I thought that it would be the perfect film to blog about. I did think that this was a cute adventure movie but would be better suited to a younger audience than myself. I found that this film was really sweet that the snake wanted to go across the desert in order to find a snake in which he found he felt a connection with even though they were different kinds and also from different worlds. I also thought by having the girls brother being a drug addict and struggling with wanting more drugs and wanting to leave his sister w

Film: Brave Year: 2012 Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy Directed By: Mark Andrews, Brenda Chapman Starring: Kelly Macdonald, Billy Connolly, Emma Thompson About:  Determined to make her own path in life, Princess Merida defies a custom that brings chaos to her kingdom. Granted one wish, Merida must rely on her bravery and her archery skills to undo a beastly curse. Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6CKcqIahedc My Review: Having not seen Brave in years I thought it would be a perfect movie to watch which would make me feel proud as a Scottish person while watching an animation movie. I really like that this movie has clans which is something that is a huge part of Scotland's past and by having really common Scottish names it gave it more of a Scottish feel to the movie. Having a lead character in which doesn't want to be married off and wants to be her own person I think is a really key thing for people to watch and for children to know that it is okay t
