New Year's Eve Rambles...

Hello Everybody,
I don't really know why I am writing this New Year Ramble...probably because I am about to self combust at the amount of clichés stuck around my facebook and twitter feeds. Am I the only one that finds it excruciatingly cringy? I mean to be honest, New Year is great... I love that it feels fresh and clean and that you are ready for anything, but there are a few things that I just believe demonstrates a bad attitude of the human race.

Do we really need New Year's resolutions?

I was up late last night thinking about this, and about how the run up to the New Year is where people basically pick out all of the faults that they have with themselves, and list all of the things they want to change in the New Year. Inevitably, a lot of the time we only care about these resolutions for a couple of weeks into January and then really do not give a stuff until after Christmas again. But why should we be so negative? Why should New Year be about picking out our faults to improve on for the next year? Can we not just be happy with the way we are doing things now?
Another thing I thought about is something that I have actually spoke about on my blog before, here. It is about how if there is something that we want to improve on why do we wait? I feel as though if you want to start drinking more water, start today for goodness sake! Why should you have to wait until the New Year to start doing something to make you a better being? Do it now... go and get a glass of water now if you want to drink more.

Look at it more positively!

Your year was great really, unfortunately, because of the way the brain is structured we tend to remember the bad stuff more greatly. But look at the photos you have taken this year, think about all of the things you have actually done this year. It has been great this year really. Okay, so you may have fallen out with one or two friends... or perhaps something worse, and they will be more prevalent memories, but you also had an amazing time when you spent the summer at the beach, or found that amazing handbag in the sale last January. Don't forget the good stuff.

Time flies when you are having fun!

It is one of those things that we have always been told since we were small... that time flies when we are having fun. Henceforth, the reason 2014 really has flown by is because you had an awesome time. You went on some brilliant adventures, you tried sushi for the first time *okay... I didn't, but we don't talk about that!*, and you even faced a fear of yours that you have been hiding away from for years, and you even poured a bucket of ice over yourself, as a selfless act for charity. 2014 wasn't terrible, 2014 was a journey. We learnt from our mistakes, but we also grew from our experiences. Of course 2015 may be greater, and we may decide to put in more to get out more in the New Year. But do not forget the brilliant fun you had this year.

Have a good one! Here's to 2015!

24 things... I want to do in 2015!

Hello Everybody,
I told you I would be posting again, didn't I? Anyway, I thought I would do a little post on some things that I would like to achieve in the next year, as it is always good to set yourself some goals, but these are slightly different from resolutions, they are just things that I would really like to do. Things that I would like to experience and achieve.
1. Do a colour run.
2. Go to a concert.
3. Save for something nice, a camera or new laptop.
4. Go to London with my friends... I need to grow up and actually brave it.
5. Try sushi... I still haven't done that yet.
6. Treat my family more.
7. Give more to charity... through fundraising and things.
8. Be more sociable.
9. Have more technology free days.
10. Be more me on my blog... I know I honestly started to enjoy it less when I was being told what to write *the blogmas project hasn't particularly suited me very well*.
11. Experiment more with my makeup and fashion.
12. Go ice-skating.
13. Go on lots of trip with my friends.
14. Passing my driving test would be quite nice.
15. Become organised like I used to be.
16. Use my time wisely... scrolling though Twitter multiple times a day really does not count.
17. Bake more, I haven't had a lot of time to do that recently.
18. See my cousins more.
19. Document more of my life, through photographs and family videos.
20. Work more on my photography.
21. Learn how to do latte art.
22. Try more new foods.

What would you like to do this year?

What I got for Christmas (& Birthday)!

Hello Everybody,
Today I thought I would share with you what I got for Christmas and my Birthday as I was meant to do it yesterday for Blogmas and also because it was highly enjoyed by you all last year. I would like to say before I start this post that I am extremely grateful for everything that I received, and I am not trying to brag in any way. I hope you enjoy this little post, and also had a great Christmas, because I know we haven't spoken since then.
I am going to try and go through all of my stuff systematically because I already feel like I could be rambling for a while otherwise, and this post may be quite the struggle to write, as I was very lucky this year and received quite a lot of bits and bobs, which after I write this I will be trying to find a home for... and oh boy I am terrible at tidying things away, I get so easily distracted... but needs must!
Firstly I will go through my main presents, as I presume they are the things that you will all be most excited to hear about, as much as I was to receive. The first thing I got was a subscription to Spotify Premium...well... technically I'm paying for it at the moment, but I'm sure my Mum will sort out the standing order soon. I then got some Original Cloud 9 hair straighteners, and "oh my word" these are lifesavers. I'd been using the same set of cheap straigheners for years, but these new ones actually hold my hairs straight-ness, leave my hair looking glossy and also have different heat settings. From my friends I also got the Zoeva Rose Gold makeup brush kit, and it is the best surprise I think I have ever received... I literally... gah... I can't!!
Another one of my most exciting gifts, mainly because it was something very different to anything I have is the MAC lipstick in Amplified Violetta. It is the most amazing shade of purple, and although it looks particularly scary in the packaging, it is actually beautiful when put on.
A few fashion bits that I received were some... what I normally describe as "Bob the Builder" boots with a little bit of a heel, these look absolutely incredible, and I love the fact that they go with so many of my clothes. I also got a poncho *which I forgot to photograph* from Next, and it is a lovely beige colour with an Aztec pattern on it, and a turtle neck.
For my secret santa I received some Vanilla Chai Yankee Candle tea lights, which smell like minced pies, and some lovely love heart shaped tea light holders. I also received a Yankee Candle Christmas Eve votive as well from another friend.
Some little stocking filler bits I received were a Kitchen timer in the shape of a Kitchenaid from a friend, it was technically a Birthday present. Some bars of soap from Bomb Cosemetics. A little Ted Baker gift set with some nice bath bits inside. A little metal mug, with some chocolate on the inside; an i.scout bandana type thingmabob, and many pairs of socks., as well as some new hockey gloves as mine were on their last legs.
Other hair things that I received included a hair wrap thing that I can use to help dry my hair after I have washed it. I was so happy with this gift because my hair literally holds water like a camel, it will not dry! I also got a little Tresemmé kit that includes a mini shampoo, conditioner, hairspray and a mini hairbrush.
I also got the book Girl Online, by Zoe Sugg, which I was so chuffed about that I actually finished the book by the end of Boxing Day! I will however do a review of the book, as I know there has been a lot of iffyness over it, but I really enjoyed it... and I am not just saying that because it is Zoe's book.
I also got some bath bits, which included 4 shower gels from the Bodyshop, in the flavours, Moringa, Honeymania, Olive and Strawberry. I got a Radox set which had their raspberry shower cream and coconut shower cream included and finally a Lynx Attract gift set. Lets hope all of these smelly's aren't really because people are trying to tell me I smell.
I also got some of my favourite ever DVDs which I was so pleased about because I have been wanting to watch them for too long now. These include Les Miserables and The Fault in our Stars.
Finally, I received a life supply of chocolate... not literally, but it feels like I have got that much now, and I will have to eat it all before it melts! And also quite a bit of money as well as a Topshop voucher, and as I get paid this week and it is the sales, I will most probably be going shopping... so expect a haul pretty soon.
I hope you enjoyed this very long post on all of the things that I received. I would just like to say thank you to anyone that wished me a Merry Christmas and made this year special, I am a very lucky girl.
See you tomorrow... or maybe even later...

The Christmas Jumper... plus a little bit of explaining!

Hello Everybody,
It may not come to any surprise to you when I hold my hand up and say, "I am a terrible blogger!". I am supposed to be blogging everyday this month yet haven't written in a week. I feel absolutely terrible and honestly wish I could have written all of the blog posts I had planned because I was so excited about them. What I failed to realise is that December would be a very busy month for me when I signed up for the #bigblogmasproject2014.
So far this month I have started a proper job, had coursework deadlines at school, celebrated my 17th birthday, started learning to drive, as well as all of the Christmas celebrations in between and being in the school's pantomime. I also did not realise that I would be poorly for a good 2 weeks, which has been absolutely horrible considering the fact that I never normally get ill. For all of these reasons I haven't been able to properly commit to this challenge, however I am hoping I am back and able to post for the rest of the month now that school has ended and I am now feeling quite a bit better.
Anyway, today's post is about my Christmas jumper, which I can honestly say is the best Christmas jumper EVER!
My Christmas jumper was bought 2 years ago when Republic was still on the go and I was so excited when I saw it because it is quite different from what I had seen everybody else wearing. It is a cream cable knit jumper with pastel blue, and pink details all over it. It has reindeer going all around the chest area, which makes it festive, and it is completely subtle unlike most Christmas jumpers which don't tend to be at all stylish.
I have decided that next Christmas it will be time for me to invest in a new Christmas jumper, because I need to wear them so many times over the Christmas holidays. I am thinking however, I could quickly nab one in the sales after Christmas because they are quite expensive considering you can only really wear them at one time of the year.

What do your Christmas jumpers look like?

Favourite blogs!!

Hello Everybody,
This is quite a difficult post for me because I read so many blogs and love so many of them. However, I am choosing to speak about some blogs that A. You may have not heard of and B. Have spoken to me online in the past.
I'm only going to talk about 3 of them because I feel as though I want time to talk about them rather than just write a list.

MissBeautyObsession

I discovered Beth just as I started blogging in May 2013. I loved her blog which was full of reviews, advice and even some more personal posts. She has been on and off blogging, like a lot of us teen bloggers do from time to time. But Beth has never lost sense of herself even though she has a lot of followers now and whenever she comes back it puts a smile on my face. We have tweeted each other and I have got involved in her blogging challenge, and overall she is just such a lovely person.

Coleoftheball

The brains behind this blogmas project, but also the brain behind an amazing blog. She is such a lovely person, and again blogs about everything that I love to read. Not only that, but she has gorgeous hair!! She is also great to Snapchat when you are bored... or need to vent excitement out on something.

Elizabeth's Diary

We worked on a little project some time ago together and although it was a little bit of a fail, we had a great time working together organising it. I just think we got carried away and failed to realise that it will take time to run. However, Elizabeth, although an occasional blogger, makes lovely posts. Elizabeth is also a very kind and thoughtful person and there have been plenty of times that she has messaged me checking I am okay... which is just so lovely.

I hope you check out these blogs.

Favourite Christmas Films

Hello Everybody,
Today I thought that it would be nice for me to share with you a few of my favourite Christmas movies... because... I FREAKING LOVE CHRISTMAS MOVIES... and that is what I have been told to write, but we can pretend I haven't said that. Rather then me rambling with a long intro I am going to jump straight into it...

Elf

This film seems to be a general favourite with the world's population, probably because of it's heartwarming yet hilarious story line. It is about a boy/man called Buddy who one day crawled into Santa's sack and was bought home and bought up by elves. But as he grew up he wanted to find his Dad and the story is mostly about Buddy finding his Dad and learning how to fit into the real world, and also goes on a quest to liven up the Christmas spirit.

Santa Clause 2

As Santa is getting older his elves begin to worry that he will one day be unable to do his job. That's when his job gets taken over by a robot clone and the real Santa and his family have to work together to keep the real Santa's job, whilst getting Charlie (Santa's son) off of the naughty list.

The Holiday

A romance about two ladies who are fed up of where they live and decide to do a life swap (USA to UK) during the festive season. This gives the two leading actresses a chance to let their hair down and rebuild their lives in completely different ways.

Deck The Halls

This movie is about a family that have just moved in and at first do not seem to get on with their neighbours. The plot of the story is that the father of the new household wants to be the most festive man in the area and starts up a quest to make his house visible from space in the dark by using only Christmas lights.

What Christmas movies do you like?

Christmas Inspiration... wrapping ideas!!

Hello Everybody,
Firstly I want to apologise for missing 3 days of Blogmas, however I did pre-warn you that December is a very busy month for me. Don't get me wrong... I love it, but the amount my life has changed recently meant that I really did not have the time to sit down and write a tonne of blog posts everyday last week. I thought I would do a very quick recap of my week and how much it has changed. Firstly, I turned 17, then I started work *my first proper job* and I have also started learning to drive. Yep... busy week.
Anyway, I am going to try my utmost best to blog everyday this week, starting from today... with some Christmas Inspiration., wrapping edition... because I am pretty sure we are fed up with using the usual wrapping techniques.
Sources: Pinterest

Chalkboard wrapping paper

This is such a nice idea because being able to personalise wrapping paper is so meaningful, but also if you make mistakes you can just rub it off and start again. Plus, chalkboards are a massive trend at the moment so of course people would be happy with this wrapping paper.

Brown paper packages tied up with strings...

...these are a few of my favourite things. It just looks so classic and kitsch. Plus, who doesn't love a brown paper package tied up with a string? You can even get brown wrapping paper with festive designs, for example, snowflake covered brown paper.

Tying something onto the present.

Be it some cute little buttons, a sprig of a Christmas tree, or even a candy cane. Adding something extra onto your presents can really give the gift the "wow factor" before it has even been opened. This idea incorporated with the brown paper idea will look amazing.

I hope I have given you some wrapping inspiration... what do you do to wrap up your presents?

Party Food Ideas!

Hello Everybody,
Today's theme was to write a post about food and my original idea was to write about what I ate in a day, but it seems that I forgot my brain and every time I eat something I fail to a picture of it. Plus, my slightly unhealthy diet is a little bit of an embarrassment. For that reason I am writing a post about some party food ideas for any of you that may be hosting parties over the festive season.

The Obvious

I'm going to start this post with the obvious snack that you can have at a party because they tend to be the easiest and cheapest to put together. The first things are lots of crisps, nachos and dips. My favourite dips include, salsa, nacho cheese and sour cream and chive dip. You could also have sweets, cake, cocktail sausages and of course PIZZA!! Another option is always buying the sets of party food from the freezer sections of the Supermarkets. They are always yummy!!

The Not so Obvious...

Little kebabs of things... you know... pineapple, feta cheese, olives, palma ham. Just lots of yummy stuff on cocktail sticks really. You could also bake some cakes, or even make some DIY bits that you might find on Pinterest are always an idea, as we all know that a lot of people love making nice little bits around the festive season.

I hope you enjoyed these little ideas and I will see you tomorrow.

Birthday Party Photo Diary

Hello Everybody!!
If you are aware, I am the Birthday girl and I am totally 17 now, whoop whoop!! But, to celebrate this special day, on Friday night I had a little Birthday Party around my house. As today's theme was a photo diary I thought I would show you some party photos, trying my best not to embarrass my friends in anyway. But, I hope you like these little pictures and I will write a little bit about my party after.
I do firstly want to apologise for the terrible lighting in all of these pictures, but it was night time and dark, so I hope you can understand.
I had a fab evening. It actually started with me getting home in the evening to find that my new school bag had finally arrived *I broke my old one* and in the parcel were not one but two chocolate bars. It's almost as if ASOS knew it was my Birthday or something. Anyway, I highly recommend the Ritz Cadbury chocolate bars because they taste absolutely delicious.
I then got ready in my new skirt and top and curled my hair to make it look different and pretty. And then soon after I arranged everything around ready for the party my friends arrived. Our evening consisted of music, dancing, food, pizza takeaway and just fun, as we don't see eachother as a group of friends all together very often.
I hope you enjoyed this little photo diary.

A Christmas Book Review!

Hello Everybody,
I haven't read this year's Christmas book yet... but I thought however I could do a review of the Christmas book I read last year that I'm pretty sure my mum bought me for a joke a few years ago. Basically, for years I have always begged my mum to buy me a dog but because she was bitten by one of my Nan's dogs before I was born she has very much hated dogs. So, she then bought me a book called, The Puppy that Came for Christmas... by Megan Rix.
The Puppy that Came for Christmas is both an emotional but very sweet book for Christmas and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is quite different to what I would normally read, because normally I would pick up a romantic novel, or even a classic novel. However, there was something special about this book that made me thoroughly enjoy it.
The story is about a couple called Megan (the author) and Ian who unfortunately struggled to have children after getting married and therefore decided to start looking after puppies for their first 6 months of training into being Helper Dogs. Unfortunately, after doing this twice with two adorable puppies, the first one called Emma and the second called Freddy, they started to find it too painful having to return the puppies for them to further their work with the charity, and therefore stopped.
But then, one Christmas they decided to get a puppy of their own called Traffy, which would be much less painful for them because they would not have to give her up.
This is a true story, which I suppose makes this even more heartwarming for Christmas. I really commend Megan for sharing her story with everyone.

I hope you enjoyed this little book review, and I will see you tomorrow.

First #bigblogmasproject2014 What winter means to me!

Hello Everybody,
Today is the first day of the #bigblogmasproject2014, which means I should be blogging everyday between now and New Year. Wow!! This is going to be a crazy month. I do want to add I have my birthday, a Christmas show, a finance mock and Christmas and New Year obviously. So, this month is certainly going to be a crazy ride.
However, today I am going to be doing a post about what winter means to me, because I personally think that everybody has a different view on what winter really is and what it means to them.
Winter means to me cosy nights in with hot chocolates and movies whilst snuggling up under fuzzy blankets.
Winter means to me family nights in watching Christmas movies and eating roast dinner.
Winter means to me fuzzy socks to keep your feet warm on frosty mornings on the way to school.
Winter means to me, time for your most glittery and glam dresses to emerge from you wardrobe ready to party.
Winter means to me baking for family when usually you wouldn't.
Winter means to me sitting around a nice warm fire, or in our case putting the heating on full and putting a pretend DVD fireplace on the TV.
Winter means to me wearing massive jumpers and not caring about what you look like as long as you are warm.
Winter means to me shopping with family buying gifts for others and yourself.
Winter means to me, a special time of giving and loving.
