Favorite place on earth

Hey guys!

We all have that one place on earth where we just feel happy when we're there. We all enjoy visiting that place wherever it may be. For me, I'm not gonna lie to you, it's my bed. I spend most of my time here, Sleeping, looking through social media, writing blog posts. I'm even sitting on my bed right now as I write this on my laptop. It's a special place to me because first off, it's mine. I sleep in this bed every night, nobody else but me. Some people may not find it comfortable, but I do because I'm used to it. It's the hardest goodbye for me when I have to leave my bed to go to school, but it's the first thing I sit on when I come home. It's why sometimes I get really really lazy on weekends. I'm comfortable and warm in my bed. I don't like leaving it, but I do eventually because I know I have to do something productive. So, yeah. My bed is my favorite place on earth and it won't stop being my favorite place on earth.

I hope you enjoyed this post and I'll be back soon with another. I love you all. Bye!

6 beauty products I couldn't live without tag

Hey guys!

Okay, I decided to do this tag because I like wearing make up and I thought you guys should know what 6 products I cannot live without. Here we go.

1. Rimmel London Stay Matte powder - I use this on a daily basis. I love it so much because to me it feels like a layer of protection on my face and makes the spots and dark circles under my eyes look less noticeable.

2. Collection cover up stick (concealer) - Along the lines of covering up spots and dark circles under my eyes, I love using this on a daily basis. To me, it feels like it brightens my eyes a little when I put it on under my eyes. I also think it blends in well with the powder so again it gives me that little bit of protection.

3. W7 Naked Nudes eyeshadow palette - I love this eyeshadow palette because I like wearing neutral colors for my eyes and this palette has all the colors I need. I do have other eye shadows I like to use but this is the one I use the most.

4. Collection color lash, all day color mascara in black - This is my everyday mascara. I always end up repurchasing this because it doesn't smudge that much and it lasts all day. It's also affordable.

5. Sleek, make up pout polish, SPF15 - I love putting this lip balm on because it moisturizes my lips and it also smells amazing. It also has SPF in it which means it's good for the summer too.

6. Nivea Soft Moisturizing Cream - This moisturizer works perfectly for me, it leaves my skin feeling smooth and it feels great.

Well, now you know the 6 beauty products I couldn't live without. I'll be back soon with another post.
Bye guys! I love you all.

What's in my school bag?

Hey guys!

So, I'm currently in my final year of sixth form. That's crazy. I'm nearly at the end of my secondary school life. It's scary and also exciting because it means I can start the next chapter of my life which is going to university. I'm planning on studying advertising when I go to university so be excited for university related posts in the Summer and Autumn. I'm still waiting for offers from two of my university choices, but I got a conditional offer from one of my chosen universities which is good news.

Anyway, sorry for my rambling. Let's get on with this post. Today, I thought I'd share with you what's in my school bag. This is genuinely what I had in my school bag when I came home from school, I have not taken anything out of it.

This is my school bag. I got it from Argos about 3/4 years ago. I'm sure you can probably find this bag anywhere really, but the brand is Roxy. I prefer to have a backpack for school because I find it easier to carry and there's plenty of room in it. It has two pockets, a small one and a big one.

This is what it looks like. 

Now, this is what's in the front pocket. 

From left to right:
  • My purse which I got from Peacocks a while ago
  • Peppermint chewing gum, I thew the wrapper out ages ago and I don't know why but left the gum in my front pocket
  • My Sony headphones from Tescos which have lasted me a while
  • My iPod nano
  • My penguin purse from newlook which I keep my phone charger and my keys/memory stick inside
  • A bus ticket for when I caught the service bus to school
  • My double dip lip balm, always handy to have in my school bag
  • My phone which is a Nokia Lumia 520 and the case is from Amazon and it's The Fault In Our Stars quotes
Now, this is what was in the main pocket. I only had one lesson today but these things are usually in my bag because they are essential for me to have on a daily basis in school
From left to right:
  • A pink expandable file from Works which I keep all papers and work I need. I have this because I can't be bothered to bring in a binder because it weighs down my bag. So I just put all the important papers that I know I'll need inside. I also keep lined paper in it so that I can take notes as well.
  • My pencil case with all my pens, pencils etc.
  • A pen, just in case I forget my pencil case and I know I'll have something to write with
  • My fingerless gloves which are handy because I have a touch screen phone, so I can use my phone and keep the gloves on as well. Handy for the cold weather that's been happening recently here.
  • My school planner which has my timetable, my homeworks and to do lists inside. 
Anyway, that's everything. I'll be back soon with another post.
Stay smiling guys. I love you all.

Happy days!

Hey guys!

So, this is gonna be a short post today but I'm gonna tell you about my day and what it was so happy.
First off, I started watching The Vampire Diaries for the first time ever on Netflix and I love it. Now, my evening's will probably be spent watching it instead of doing anything productive.

Anyway, next thing that happened was I got a letter and it was fancy, It had a university's logo on it. (One of my Uni's choices by the way) So, I opened it and the letter looked fancy anyway it told me that I got accepted into the university. I was really happy. I had to read it over a couple of times to see if it was true, but yeah. it means I'm definitely going to university in September. Woo! I'm still waiting for offers for all my other universities, but still. I'm so so happy.

Anyway, that's all the exciting things that happened to me today. I'll be back soon with another blog post.

I love you all.

Relaxing time after a stressful day

Hey guys!

So, recently have been put under a lot of stress due to school work and deadlines coming up. I thought I needed a bit of time to relax and just forget about everything for a moment. Now, how I do this is firstly I run a bath for myself because I find a bubble bath to be quite a nice place to just relax for a moment.

I also like lighting a candle by the bath as well because it's always calming,

Listening to music is also good too. I like to listen to calm relaxing music while in the bath. 

After the bath, before I go to bed. Drinking tea is always good because it tastes nice and it's better to have than coffee before bed.

I like to sometimes turn off all my electricity and just read a book.
I'm currently reading the last book in the Divergent series, Allegiant.

Anyway, that's it from me. I hope this advice will help you relax after a stressful day.
See you soon guys. I love you all.

Hey guys!

So, it's finally 2015. Where are the hover-cars? Seriously where are they. I'm kidding you guys.

Okay, so I was doing a lot of thinking about what could be my first post in 2015 and then I realized. I want to talk to you about something I've recently done. I started making a journal/diary. Whatever you like to call it. Basically, I bought a A5 sketchbook and I wanted it to make it special so I looked on pinterest and it gave me ideas on what to write in a journal. I haven't completed the journal yet but my goal for 2015 is to complete and fill it with memories, ideas, wishes, quotes and other stuff. Just anything basically.

Now, you're probably wondering why I'm telling you this but take my advice. Go out and buy a notebook or a sketchbook or a journal with blank pages and fill it with whatever you want over the year then you can look back on it all in 2016 and see if anything has changed. You may surprise yourself.

Here are some ideas which I have done that you can put in yours:

  • Quotes from your favorite movies, books, TV shows etc. that inspire you.
  • Write down 7 things like 7 places you want to visit, 7 food you love. 7 wishes, 7 people you can't live without etc.
  • 100 things you want to do before you die (include things you've already done that you always wanted to do, trust me this is a working progress) 
  • Write down all the things you love or fangirl over
  • Your favorite things about holidays like Christmas, Halloween, Easter and all the other holidays
  • Your top favorite films, tv shows, books, musicals etc.
  • New Year Resolutions/Goals/Wishes
That's all I've done so far in my journal, but I'm sure you can think of plenty of more. Maybe one day you can write a day and say everything you did on that day. There are loads of things you can write or draw on a blank page. Just let your imagination run wild. 

Just go for it.
Make every moment count.

Anyway, that's it from me on this post. I'll be back with another post soon.
Thanks for reading guys.
I love you all.
