Long time no blogging, right?!
Well, So much has happened since i last blogged, which was around 2 months ago?! 
I really need to sort out a schedule, not just for blogging, but for my life really, as I need to start revision etc..
Well, I have some really exciting news. I got into college... yippee!
I'm currently in Year 11 and finish soon, so in September i will be going to college (going to write a separate post on what i'm doing and why etc..)
Also I got my results Back on Thursday...arghhh!
I got an E in my history resit, a C in my English lit (yay!) and a D in my science resit. It sounds really bad, but i'm not bothered for many reasons that i'm not going to share. Also I've been contemplating making you tube videos? hmm, what do you think? I'm thinking of starting them when i leave for exam leave around mid may.
I have some blog posts in mind that i'm thinking about doing:
1) about me post
2) Current Favourites
3) all about college
4) Everyday face routine

Let me know what else you want :-)

Suicide -my advice/story.

Hello, so this post is a serious post and it's non-beauty so if you're going to comment saying it's a beauty blog and this post isn't beauty.. then just don't read. I have had quite a few people who I know go through bullying and suicide, and some story's are about me. Firstly, everyone is beautiful. It took me a while to believe this, as from as long as i can remember I have always had it in my head that i'm Ugly, Fat and just no use to anybody. Part of me still thinks that. I feel so alone most of the time and i'm not that person who has had one best friend there whole life who is practically family. I'm not the average 16 year old, I don't go to parties, I don't drink, I don't have a boyfriend -and some people can't accept that, that is me. I have felt so alone some times that i have really considered doing some things, but the thing that got me through it is the future. I would plan out how i want my life -in a realistic way not something like 'I wanna marry Harry Styles and live in Florida' because that is unlikely it will happen. I want to be a makeup artist and have a nice boyfriend and a nice house, and then children one day -simple enough? But thinking about that makes me want to live for the future. If you turn to suicide, then it will take away your pain, but will give people, more people than you think,  pain for the rest of there life's. Not only pain but guilt. They will think it's their fault. There was a boy in my year at school and he committed suicide a couple of months ago, I never spoke to him but I attended a memorial service to pay my respects and it brung me to tears. Nobody knew why he did it -he didn't leave a letter or anything. Many people including his friends and family have been left with a whole in their heart for the rest of their life. I've learnt that suicide is selfish. It's the easy way out. You can either commit suicide and take away your pain, or fight it. Fight the bullied or whatever is making you so low you want to take your own life. Fight it, what's to lose? There are people out there who love you. I love you. You can do this, but only if you believe in yourself, if you don't then who will? Be strong. Be tough. but most of all Believe. If any one out there needs somebody to talk to, then i'm hear. I don't judge. No matter what time of the day or night it is, it doesn't matter if i have never spoke to you before, if you need my help i will  be there to give it, i'll be there for you -that's my promise. If i can stop you from doing something you will regret then i will do everything i can to. Feel free to email me any time -Just remember, that one smile you give to somebody, that may stop them from doing something stupid. Live with no regrets..I love you all! xo


Hiya Beautiful, so like most of the country did, last night my town received some snow. Part of me loves snow, don't get me wrong it can be fun but i hate it so much at times. Like now it's turned to ice all over the pavements and it's so slippy. My mum has just come home and she fell and smashed her head on the ground. I live on a hill and it's such a pain when it has ice. I live on a 'backstreet' street as well, so it's really difficult to get cars up. I'm dreading walking to school tomorrow, I walk on my own and its about a 15 minute walk, plus i have loads of books and bags to carry on Mondays! It started snowing yesterday whilst i was at my Grans, and when i got home, I took some pictures.This was mid-afternoon and by 10 at night, the snow had got so thick. Do you like snow? How much have you got? xo

Bargain Buy! -Denim Shorts

Hello! So I have such a good bargain to share with you today! So i was shopping in Internationale the other week and i came across their sale. I never normally find things in sales because it's either size 6 or something hiddious. I was so pleased when i found these because i have been looking for the 'perfect' pair of denim shorts for ages, and these happen to be them. I know it's January and it's cold, but i will wear them with tights, or just wear them a lot in the summer. So they were Originally £16.99 which is still OK for a pair of good quality denim shorts, but they were in the sale for £7 but when i got to the till they said ''£5 please" I was SO happy and cannot wait to wear these in summer! :)

Small Haul :)

So I nipped into town this morning on the way back from a college interview (eeek!) and I didn't have much money on me so i couldn't buy much but I bought the Impulse Very Pink/ Barry M offer. I Bought this around May last year and used to spray within a week because I loved it SO much and the lip gloss has already been used up, so why not buy it again? I also bought these 2 nail varnish's from pound land, yes you read correctly -pound land!  They came in a pack together so they were only 50p  each -bargin or what?! The electric blue is in Pier 17 and the Purple is in Plaza Plumberry -I can't wait to use them!

Fresh Start!

Hey, so you may have noticed i have deleted nearly all of my posts. I felt they were pretty rubbish and the quality of the pictures were awful. So i'm having a fresh start! -yayyy:) I WILL do lots of Tags, Monthly Favorites, Day Summaries, Hauls and other random posts! So look forward to a fresh, new blog. I have made a promise with myself to put up at least 2 posts a week. I am really determined to keep up with my blog:) xx

Would You Rather Tag!

#1. Would you rather go out with messy hair and nice make-up, or nice hair and no make-up?
This is SO difficult! probably nice hair and no makeup because i'm quite lucky and have no spots/blemish's and my skin is normal -it's not dry or oily. So i could probably go out without makeup on.

#2. Would you rather shave your eyebrows or have your eyelashes fall out?
well, you would probably notice the eyebrows more, but i would have to shave them off, because i love my eyelashes so much, there so long and dark! :) My eyebrows are horrible anyway!

#3. Would you rather be forced to shop at only MAC or Sephora for the rest of your life?
Well, I live in the UK, and I don't have a sephora so it'll have to be MAC :)

#4. Would you rather wear the lipgloss/lipliner look or 80's perm?
Lipgloss/Lipliner look because I HATE tight curls in my hair!!!!

#5. Would you rather leave the house with an obvious foundation line or overdone blush?
obvious foundation line, i hardly wear blush as i have naturally pink-ish cheeks and people who have overdone blush look RIDICULES.

#6. Would you rather wear MC Hammer pants or biker shorts in public?
erm :| how hard are these questions?! Probably MC hammer pants because i haven't got the best figure ever :L

#7. Would you rather have a bad orange-y spray tan or really weird tan lines that can't be covered?
Orange-y tan, don't ask why:|

#8. Would you rather have a bad haircut or bad hair color?
Defiantly a bad hair cut because i would just have it in a bun tied back until it grows out, whereas a Colour can be permanent!

#9. Would you rather have youtube or twitter taken away forever?
Deffinatly Twitter! I CANNOT live without YouTube! I watch videos every day!

#10. Would you rather give up using makeup brushes or mascara?
Makeup Brushes without a doubt. Mascara is the one and only makeup item i am willing to pay quite a lot for, because i wear it every single day.

Thanks for reading! :)xxxx
