Post Suggestions??

Hey guys, so I just want to know what type of posts you guys prefer. Do you guys like my chatty posts or my tips and advice posts? id also like to know if you guys have any suggestions for posts as its very hard to make sure any readers will enjoy the post and will be able to relate to. If you guys have any ideas I would love to hear them, I was thinking of doing a post on the Netflix series thirteen reasons why, would you guys like reviews on things like that? Anyway I hope you are all having a lovely day, I will post soon!

What Would You Guys Do?

So before I start this I want to apologise for not posting in a while I have been extremely busy with tests and assessments. Thank you all for waiting so patiently!

 

So this post will be different to my other ones but I feel it is an appropriate post and it could maybe get other people going through the same to realise they are not alone. When I write posts I try to focus on things I can help you guys with but now I need your advice. Its not a very serious thing but to us teenagers it annoys us and can make us feel low.

So earlier today my best friend of a year was with my ex, before today she had repeatedly made comments on how they talk. I later on messaged her just asking what was going on and she denied she was with him. Its not the fact she was with him that’s getting to me its more the part that she lied to me but told our other friend that she and him were meeting.

I know a lot of you guys will question my maturity but I really just want to know how others would deal with the situation. I mean she’s my best friend can I be mad at her for this? Is it even a big deal? I feel like if I knew how to deal with this it would be 100 times easier. what would you guys do??

Lush Favourites!

Lush favourites

Although it is “spring” the weather hasn’t exactly been sun bathing worthy, because of this I have had a cold for the last 2 weeks. When I have a cold I love to have a relaxing bath, over the past few months I have been loving a variety of the lush products. I really like lush because they don’t test on animals and they campaign against animal testing. So here are a few of the products I have been loving!

 

Bath Bombs

  1. twilight

Twilight is by far my favourite lush bath bomb! I like bath bombs that produce a lot of colour, so far this has definitely been my favourite colour wise. The fragrance in this bath bomb is designed to help you relax and sleep, the main smell in this fragrance is lavender. Although this bath bomb does leave your bath with some glitter in it, so make sure you clean the bath afterwards to avoid annoying a parent or sibling.

I would give this bath bomb a 5/5.

2.  Sakura

Sakura smells so good! After using this bath bomb it wouldn’t be my first choice of bath bomb to buy in the future, only because I found after it had done fizzing it was like I hadn’t even used a bath bomb. It didn’t leave much colour although the smell lasted for a while but started to fade towards the end of my bath.

I would give this bath bomb a 2/5.

3. So white

So white is one of lush’s Christmas collection. I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS!! This bath bomb smells like the freshest green apple you’ll have ever seen. Although on the outside the bath bomb is a “snow white” colour it leaves the bath a fresh green colour! This is my favourite Christmas smell.

I would rate this bath bomb a 4/5.

4. Star dust

I was given this bath bomb at Christmas (its part of the Christmas collection) but only got round to using it recently, I loved this bath bomb! It smelled so good and it left my bath baby blue colour. I really liked this bath bomb as it also made my skin feel really soft!

I rate this bath bomb a 4/5

 

Shower gel

  1. The comforter

I first got this while I was on holiday last year, I literally used it for the rest of the year! This shower gel not only leaves you smelling good it leaves your skin SO soft. The main smell in this shower gel is a calming blackcurrant smell. I found that a bottle of this lasts so long, I bought the 100g bottle and it lasted me 2+ months!

I rate this shower gel 5/5.

 

Bubble bar

  1. Creamy candy

I actually used this bubble bar earlier today. I love this bubble bar for so many reasons one of them being it smells of sweet candy floss! This bubble bar also left my skin feeling so soft, plus its pink and who doesn’t want a pink bath that smells like candyfloss?

I rate this bubble bar a 4/5.

 

I recommend all these products to anyone who loves a relaxing bath! If youuse any on these products or any other lush products id love to hear your thoughts on them! Thank you for taking your time to read this, Have a lovely day!

Its Easter!

Easter post

I’m so happy to finally say that school is done for Easter! I haven’t been able to post as much as I’d like to but I do have two weeks off of school so I have time to post more. In the next few weeks I will be busy as I’m going onto the senior phase of school, but I will find time to sit and do posts, although I cant guarantee a specific day or time for my future posts.

On that note Its finally spring and of course Easter is coming up. As a kid I used to love Easter, we used to do a big egg hunt and we would do “egg rolling” which was my favourite game of the day! As I’ve gotten older we have stopped doing things like that which makes me a little bit sad because who doesn’t love Easter egg hunts?? If you are “Too old” for egg hunts here are a few fun things my family do!

Easter goodie bags

My family put together “Easter goodie bags” for each of us, we get more or less the same items to prevent us thinking someone else has more than the other person. Our goodie bags normally include:

  • An Easter egg (normally a dairy milk egg for me!)
  • A bag of our favourite sweets
  • Our favourite drink ( Shloer for me and my sister)
  • One of our favourite chocolate bars

You could change the tings in the bags but these are the things my family like to include in our ones, the bags aren’t supposed to be anything big they are supposed to be a little treat with some of our favourite things.

Egg rolling

My mum has always done this with us as she did it when she was younger, weeaster egg roling would hard boil eggs then decorate them. Obviously as we’ve gotten older our decorating skills have improved greatly. Once we’d decorated these eggs we would find a hill to roll/throw the eggs down, every time we do this everyone really enjoys it and joins in! Before we roll the eggs we try to see who’s decorating skills are the best which is always an interesting one. I feel like this is a game that is really fun for all ages although it is a very time and effort consuming activity!

 

 

These are just a few of the many things me of my family like to do at Easter, I hope this is some help if you were stuck for ideas. If you have any things your families like to do around this time of year I would love to hear them! Thank you for reading, have a lovely day.

March Favourites

march faves

Its coming up to the end of march so I thought Id show you a few of my favourite items/things I’ve used or seen this past month. This post could be quite long so get comfy and grab a snack, enjoy!

Skincare

I suffer with quite bad acne, its been a problem I’ve had since the age of eight because of this I struggle to find a skincare routine that keeps my skin reasonably clear! This month I decided to try something new and its honestly been the best thing that’s ever happened to my skin yet.

I bought two Antonio Burrell and my skin has already shown such a massive difference since using them. I got the Antonio Burrell glow cleansing oil and the Antonio Burrell therapy serum.

I highly recommend both these products to anyone who suffers with acne, dry skin or even just finds they have redness on their skin. Id rate both these products 10/10!

 

Make up

I have been loving the GLO&RAY nebula fluid foundation this month, it isn’t two heavy and I can wear it to school without feeling to “caked”. It is easy to apply and blend and stays on all day, it was also really easy to find the perfect colour for my skin tone which is unusual due to my pale skin! Id definitely recommend this to anyone who cannot find a foundation they like or can’t find the right colour.

Almost every day of this month i have been wearing no7’s ginger rose moisture drench lipstick. Im not sure what it is about the colour its just so pretty! It normally doesn’t dry my lips out which is always a bonus. I love No7’s lipsticks as they come in such good colour ranges and they dont dry my lips as much as a matte lipstick does!

Due to my natural blonde hair I have to tint my eyebrows 24/7, this can get annoying when I decide to have a no makeup day as it looks as if I’ve no eyebrows. when I do put makeup on I like to use the Rimmel London Brow this way in the shade dark brown. I don’t use a lot of this on my eye brows but the gel works perfectly when shaping and filling in my eyebrows, i am literally in love with this!

 

Other

This month the new Netflix series “Riverdale” came out, since then I have developed a slight obsession with watching it! For a start I didn’t really think it was going to me my cup of tea but as I kept watching it I started to enjoy it, for anyone who enjoyed Pretty Little Liars I highly recommend this! ( So excited for the next PLL episode!!!)

I spend a lot of time listening to music and on my phone and laptop, I have been using Spotify to listen to a lot of my music while using my laptop. I really like the mood booster playlist and the Acoustic covers playlist. I have been using the playlists and if I’m in the mood for a certain artist i just search for them as 9/10 it has most of their albums on there! I love this app but cant get it on my phone with out having to pay for unlimited, i still love the app though!

On the topic of music there have been two albums I have been loving in particular is divide by Ed Sheeran and 24HRS by Olly Murs . Both these albums have been so relatable and inspiring. At the start of this month I had one of the greatest nights of my life at Olly Murs’ concert, he was absolutely brilliant live and put on a really enjoyable and entertaining show!

A really weird thing I’ve been obsessed with this month is pepperoni pizza! I’ve had the cold for more or less the last two to three weeks, when I don’t feel well i reach for  comfort foods and for the last for the past few weeks I’ve craved a pizza. Pepperoni pizza is normally not something I would eat as I’m not the biggest lover of the taste of pepperoni, but oh my god I’ve never seen anything more beautiful than a pizza huts pepperoni pizza!

 

Thank you for reading, feel free to tell me your opinion on any of these things. If you have any recommendations i would love to hear them!

If I could have lunch with anyone, who would it be?

adele

If I could have lunch with anyone i would most likely choose my favourite artist Adele. To me Adele isn’t just an artist, she is my inspiration! From a young age music has meant a lot to me and the first song of Adeles i remember absolutely loving was chasing pavements, obviously back then i had no clue what the song really meant but it never stopped me from singing it at the top of my lungs in my granny’s  car.

Adele is such an icon to me because no matter what her haters have said about her she has never changed to fit the description they expect her to be. Adele has shown me to be confident no matter how i look or what people say about me. Many people say that Adele shouldn’t be famous because of her weight, adele has taught me no matter what shape of body you have, colour of hair you have or sexuality you have you are perfect and you are beautiful!

In March 2016 my mum took me to go see Adele live. That night is one i will never forget, it was a day i truly never imagined would ever happen in a million years, but it did! Her concert was amazing, she was amazing.

Thank you for reading this, feel free to comment who you would have lunch with and why, also what is your favourite adele song (if you have one).

My Favourite Books

 

favourite books

From a young age I have always loved reading books, from “the twits” by Roald Dahl to “All the bright places” by Jennifer Niven, here are a few of my favourites.

  1. “Everything Everything” Nicola Yoon.

I first found out about this book about my favourite Youtuber/beauty blogger Zoella took it out into her WHSmith book club. As soon as she explained it in her video I knew I wanted to read it!

The book is based on a girl called Madeline, Madeline has a rare disease called SCID ( she calls it “bubble baby disease”. Madeline cannot leave the house therefore her only human contact is her mother and her nurse , Madeline was reasonably content with her life until her new neighbour Olly moved in next door. Madeline finds herself reaching out to Olly through emails, She becomes close friends with Olly until she starts to feel a feeling she never knew possible…..Love.

I struggle with finding books I can truly sit down and enjoy, but this book was a real page turner! I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good romance!

 

2. “The girl on the train” by Paula Hawkins.

My mum was the person who recommended this book to me, Id say its quite a “mature” book to the ones that Id normally pick up. Once I opened this book I literally couldn’t put it down!!

Commuter Rachel   catches daily glimpses of a  “perfect couple”, Scott and Megan, from the window of a train. One day, Rachel witnesses something shocking unfold in the backyard of the strangers’ home. Rachel tells the authorities what she thinks she saw after learning that Megan is now missing and feared dead. Unable to trust her own memory, the troubled woman begins her own investigation, while police suspect that Rachel may have crossed a dangerous line.
This book is definitely  a more mature book so I wouldn’t recommend it to some under 13 as it does go into some issues that may be to mature for younger people. never less I still highly recommend this book to anyone who likes a mystery  or a book that has lots of exciting twists and turns!
I only really have two favourite books but I have read a massive amount books and love so many of them! I feel like I love reading because it shows me new words and styles of writing to apply to my writing, from a young age I’ve always had an imagination for creating my own stories with some pretty good plots….over the years as I’ve stopped reading as much I find that I am struggling to find something new  and original to write about!
Thank you so much for reading this, feel free to comment your own personal favourite books. If you have read any of the two books I have mentioned id love to hear your thoughts on these books!
