Favourite quotes

Hey everyone

Today I thought I would tell you some of my favourite quotes, maybe these will inspire you in some way. I would love to know what your favourite quote is and why down below because I think it’s interesting to know why.

1. “Be happy and smile”- I always think this is just a nice little reminder to try and be happy and smile in your life. Just enjoy every minute with a smile

2. “Good vibes only”- I have a jar with this quote on where I put special things that make me happy. I think it’s a nice way to look back at all the good things when you are having a bad dayimg_2596

3. “Don’t look back on today look forward to tomorrow”- This is one of my favourites because I think we are always caught up looking back on what could have happened. Just try and look forward and think what you can do better next time.

4. “Don’t lose track of who you are because it might be easier to be somebody else” – Glee- This quote is from one of my favourite TV series Glee. Glee as a whole made me accept myself more but this quote really highlights the importance of being yourself.

5. Be proud of who you are” – Lea Michele- I’m going to end on this one. I think we should all be proud of who we are because we are all amazing and beautiful.¬†img_2595

I hope you enjoyed this post and might agree with these quotes. I would love to know what your favourite quote is down below. I hope your all having a great start to May. I will see you soon in another post.

Goodbye spots

Hey everyone

I hope you are all well and have had a great Easter. Today I am going to talk about my favourite product to get rid of those horrible spots that everyone gets and everyone hates. My skin is really dry but usually quite clear but when I get breakouts its all around my nose and my chin.img_2482

The product that works for me is the Witch blemish stick. This product is super cheap but really does help clear my skin. So basically you just have to push the product up and then apply the stick to any spots that have just occurred or are about to come up. This way you are able to keep them under a bit of control. The reason I like this product so much is firstly because it works haha. But also it sinks in really quickly. I am one of those people who can’t stand feeling all sticky with cream either on my face or just generally all over my body, but this product only takes a few minutes to sink in and then you can’t feel it any more. Also as it is a stick it’s able to directly get onto the spots. This is great when the spots are in hard positions to get to.img_2484

A down side to this product it that it does smell, that might just be because I apply it so near my nose so I’m able to smell it more, but it’s not the most pleasant smell. Also sometimes it can sting on your skin. The only time that has happened is when my skin has been really dry so it may be a combination of things but when it stings you just have to let it sting for a few minutes and then it will hopefully go away.

So overall I love this product because it really did help and target my spots to get rid of them quicker than other products that I have tried. I think I would give it a eight out of ten just because it does smell and when it stings it really hurts, but other than those two downsides the product is overall really good. I would love to know what you use for your skin care as I’m always on the look out to try new things.

Thank you for reading I will see you soon for my next post. I’m really sorry for the lack of posts at the moment I am in the middle of revising and that is taking all of my time but only about another month to go!!!!

Survival guide: Revision/ School

Hey everyone


So today I thought about doing another survival guide blog post. All about school. So I have done my GCSEs and I thought I would give you a few tips about revision but also just school in general. This is quite a long post so you might want to sit down get a drink and a snack, and enjoy.

So firstly revision, the dreaded word for most 15-18 year old’s (or if you go to uni then older). I wasn’t the best at revision and I’m not going to pretend I was because I would be lying, however I did learn a few tricks to motivate me through exams. The most important thing to do when revising is to keep organised. I wrote a whole blog post about keeping organised so if you want to have a read of that then click here.

Resousrces you may need

  • Paper and coloured pens are a must have. Making revision as bright as possible is what helped me
  • Post it notes
  • Cue cards
  • Snacks

Some of my revision resourcse

Anyway with revision I made a timetable that I tried to stick to (it didn’t always work) but it gave me some goals to try and achieve, and like I said in my other post it’s so satisfying to tick things off once you have finished. With the timetable I made sure I took breaks and also prioritised in order of importance and what was coming first. For example I was never good at maths, I’m still not now haha, but I made sure I did loads of maths revision so that I went in feeling as confident as I could.

Past papers is also another big help when revising. I used the website Fast past papers to get past papers and then completed them in the time period with no resources in front of me. This is such a great way to know what you know and what you need to work on, also it helps you get a feel for questions because there is only a certain amount of questions they can ask.

So lastly for revision tips is watch people on YouTube. For my English I watched Mr Bruff because he went through all the poems and texts and helped answer the questions for the exam. Another person who is great for revision is Eve Bennett with her revision channel. Eve like myself went through her exams and is able to give personal experiences and more tips on how to revise. She also talks about specific subjects and how she was able to revise so that might be useful if your unsure how to revise languages for example.

So moving on to school (I’m sorry if this post if long, maybe take a break and get another drink) the best advice I can give is ask for help when you need it. Your not stupid if you don’t understand because I guarantee there will be someone else who doesn’t get it either. Take all the advice you need because that’s what teachers are there for. Also for the exams the teachers will want you to be as confidant as you can.

So the last point I will make for this really long post on school, is enjoy friendships and lunch. This may sound really weird but the lunch period is where you can relax for about an hour and then you will be able to have a little chat and your brain can switch off, but then be ready to learn again after lunch.

So that is the end of this post. Thank you if you stayed to the end I know this was very long. However I hope you enjoyed, I would love to know your tips either for revision or school down below because there are so many interesting ones out there. Anyway thank you again, if there is anything you would like to hear from me leave a comment.

See you soon

Tips for blogging

Hey Everyone
So today I thought I would give you some of my advice about blogging. I obviously am no where near knowing everything there is and down below I would love to know some of your tips for blogging. Whether you have had years experience or just a few months (like me) knowledge can hep everyone.

img_2526

Writing things down always helps.

1. Get into as many blogger chats as you can (or as many as you remember).These chats give you the opportunity to talk to other bloggers and feel more part of the community. There is so much support and positivity in this community that the blogger chats offer.

2. The notes app is useful. I write most of my blog posts when on the train as that is just wasted time that I can use. So writing my ideas down straight away makes it so much easier to write as the idea is fresh in my head.

3. Plan posts in advance. I’m not the best at this but planning in advance and schedule posts makes it much less stressful. Also if you write posts when you think of them it’s less likely that will miss a day to publish (again I’m not the best at this haha).

4. When there is good lighting use it. As it’s getting closer to summer the lighting is better anyway, however if you can try and bulk take pictures to ensure that you have pictures for upcoming posts.

5. If you need help, ask for it. This may sound weird but talking to other bloggers about your problems really helps. I spoke to some of my blogging friends when I was feeling really down and they really helped me.

6. Don’t compare to other bloggers. This is so hard to do but try not to compare your blog to others, everyone is different. There is a great quote “try not to compare your chapter one to someone’s chapter ten” and I think this is perfect. Everyone is blogging for different reasons and is in different situations so just enjoy your blogging journey.

7. If you can’t think of ideas that’s ok. It is unlikely that you won’t have a writers block, and they are the worst but there isn’t anything you can do. Take that time to do something else with your blog whether that is socialise on chats or rearrange posts, it’s not the end of the world.

I hope you enjoyed today’s post and it may have helped you in some way. If you have any questions then just ask me down below I will try my best to help you out. Have a wonderful day.

See you for another blog post.

Let me know what your favourite things to watch are whether that be on Netflix or not I would love to know and maybe push the play button and watch it. I like to watch Netflix at the end of the night after I have done some work just to relax, or just if I don’t have any motivation I will stick on some Netflix to restore my brain haha.

Tv series

1. The Big Bang Theory 

2. Orange Is The New Black 

3. Pretty Little Liars

4. Bad education

Films

5. The other women 

6. Saving MR Banks

7. Monster VS Aliens (haha I know this is for younger people but who doesn’t love an animated film once in a while) 

I hope you enjoyed reading this post and maybe it has given you some ideas of what to watch next. Let me know your suggestions I’m always looking for new things to watch, as I said at the beginning I don’t watch many things that I haven’t heard of (not that adventours haha).

Thank you for reading and I will see you soon for a new post

Blogging breaks

Hey everyone

So today I thought I would talk about why I have taken a blogging break. I hope you enjoy this post and maybe you might understand some of the reasons I have. I’m not trying to make up excuses for myself but I thought you might like to know why there has been a lack of posts recently.

So I haven’t been very active lately and I apologise for that, but I have been so busy with school work and as I am writing this post it is 70 days until my first exam (omg !!). That might sound a long time but there is so much to learn that I need to concentrate and give the majority of my time to school and revision.

Also I just haven’t had the ideas that I need to be able to post. Every post I make I want to put 100% of my attention into it and I want to be fully happy with what I post for you all to read. I feel like over time I will be able to manage school work and this blog it’s just hard at the start to find that right balance, however I guess that is all part of this experience and I am learning new things all the time.

I feel that sometimes blogging breaks are needed and people shouldn’t feel ashamed to take a break. Even if it’s only for a day to clear your head, take time to yourself or just get on top of things everyone needs to have a break at some point. That’s just my opinion at least haha.

I am starting to plan and get things back into order so keep your eyes peeled haha. I hope you found this post useful and understand why my blog is lacking at the moment. If you have any tips for juggling blogging and other commitments then please let me know.

Thank you for baring with me and also being so positive on my other posts it means the world that you take the time out of your day to read my blog and I will make sure that I am more active.

See you soon for another post.

Just be You

Hey everyone

Today I thought I would talk about the importance of being yourself. I thought this would be a good post to write as sometimes I feel that we try and change ourselves for other people.

So I feel that I do struggle a lot with being happy with myself but I have learned that I need to be myself as everyone else is already taken. I felt like if I didn’t have something then people wouldn’t like me. I think social media also had a big effect on me, thinking that if I didn’t have a certain amount of followers then I wasn’t cool. Now I know that it doesn’t matter all that really matters is that I am happy with what I am sharing. I learned that if people didn’t like me because I wasn’t acting a certain way then they weren’t true friends. We all just need to be our unique selves because that’s whats makes everyone so interesting.

Filling myself with the most supportive and friendly people has really helped me gain confidence in being myself. I can thank everyone for helping me be me (this sounds really strange to write) but its true. You don’t realise how much the environment around you changes the mood. Although taking time to myself has kinda helped me be comfortable in myself, just because I am taking time to look after myself and my skin. ( I hope this is making sense).

Basically I wanted to make this short post just to tell you all that you don’t have to be anyone else other than yourself. When I read blog posts I love people being original and taking a different perspective in a blog. Take time to look after yourself and love who you are.

I hope this blog post made sense and was helpful. If you don’t take anything else from this blog post please remember that you are perfect just being you. Thank you for reading, let me know in the comments what you thought of this post. I will speak to you soon in a new blog post.
