Friday notes 22.05.15

Hello welcome back to my blog today i haven't really had anything that exciting to do. If you have noticed, which i am hoping you have i have changed my blog design. I have made the theme more monochrome instead of the pink i felt like i have just grown out of that and it was time for a change. Don't be shy to tell me what you think in the comments, i have to admit it has been quite stressful working with a very slow laptop that decides to freeze halfway through typing things. I am happy with the outcome of it and i think it looks a lot more professional. So i found quite a few embarrassing pictures i would like to share, i must be mad i know but they will make you laugh im sure.

                                                                Old pictures vs now.
So as you can see i have changed quite a lot haha, the youngest picture on the right is me around 10 years old. It is a really embarrassing bus pass picture the other one above is me playing for a football team aged around 11. The one next to that is me aged around 13 i went through a phase of having jet black hair and a full fringe oh dear dont you just think when you look back i looked awful. The one next to that is me aged 14 loving that pout i must say. As much as i love looking back at old pictures they are just so cringe worthy, but we all have those pictures that make us cringe and laugh. But all these pictures are different stages in my life and they all hold memories i think its nice to look back, however embarrassing it is.

my weekend plans involve going shopping and getting my roots done at my aunites shop, i hate doing my hair myself so im glad somebody else is doing it for me!

Have you got any embarrassing pictures and what are your plans this weekend? let me know in the comments

Current mood.

Hello everyone welcome back to my blog today I thought I would talk a little about what I am thinking today its just a quick little notes style post. I want this post to come across as  very laid back, just talking about things going round in my head so expect a random post today. 
I love blogging and I always have had a big love for it, even before I started blogging my self I always enjoyed reading other peoples blog. But I have to admit its really becoming a challenge to come up with new unique ideas, it seems every subject has been covered. The main posts to be blogged are normally fashion and beauty posts I love writing them don't get me wrong but I want to step out of my comfort zone and write more personal and unique posts. I love just writing down all my little thoughts and ideas on here and having a bond between me and my readers. I still want to write a few fashion and beauty posts I enjoy them but I want to make my blog more lifestyle based. I just feel like there are so many of the same blog posts out there and you have to do something original and unique to make yours stand out from the rest.
I am looking forward to the week off college next week I am really ready for it, a lately I have just been feeling so tired and just lacking energy. So the break is really perking me back up! I hope the weather really picks up and gets really sunny so I can get out and enjoy the weather. It can be a tough decision when living in England, In the morning you don't know if to get all layered up or not. The weather can be very deceiving it  may look all sunny and beautiful but when you get outside its so cold and you're just stood there shivering. Sun, please stay out for good we all miss you.
The weather in the UK is being very odd one minute it is raining, the next the sun is out shining and its all lovely. So I managed to capture the weather while its being all sunny and pretty in this picture. I love how simple it looks but its very effective with the colours.  

So, how is your week going so far? let me know in the comments

Sunday notes.

Hello and welcome back to my blog this weekend has been a fairly relaxing one nothing overly exciting. I really enjoyed just lounging around and just being well lazy! I started to get back into making smoothies and I am so glad I did it was so delicious and perfect for breakfast. Now I've started making them the night before ready for breakfast in the morning, Also my mum made a mint aero cheesecake which is so good.  We will be definitely having some more of that cheesecake later on.

I took this picture yesterday I thought the clouds looked so pretty and it was just the perfect opportunity to get a picture. I really enjoy photography and I have been getting more and more into it by the day. I know I need to practice a lot and they are a lot of things I need to learn but every one has to start somewhere.

This smoothie was so good how cute is this little cup I put it in!

I have to admit I wasn't very precise with this smoothie I didn't measure things out exactly
it was really just a trial and error and it went really well.

It has strawberries, blueberries and bananas in it!

So, what have you been up to this weekend let me know in the comments

Friday notes 15.05.15

Hello everyone welcome back to my blog. Today has been the final day of filming for my groups documentary as a college project. Its been a lot of fun and I really cant wait to watch it all through. The weather has been so great today and all the shots looked so bright and cheerful, normally I really hate getting in front of the camera but today I really enjoyed it and made the most of it, but silly me took my camera out ready to take some good pictures and the realised I had forgot to put my SD card back in. I was really annoyed with myself but I still wanted to get some pictures so the Iphone just had to do today. We filmed at a place called the amphitheatre in Sheffield and it gave us this incredible view of the city centre this was great for our introduction. I was really gutted in a way because this place was a great opportunity to get my camera out. But you get an idea even though they are only taken by an Iphone.

Everything looked so bright and summery today.


The view of the city centre.

Another picture a little glimpse at the view of the city centre.

I don't know why but I really liked this picture in black and white. The picture was took by a friend.

And the picture again but in colour.

Todays selfie.

So over all ive had a great day its been a lot of fun, the weather was such an advantage. I really cant wait to put all the documentary together and watch it I just know its going to be really good and its something to be really proud of.

So, what are you up to this weekend let me know in the comments

Simple beauty.

Hello everyone welcome back to my blog, today I wanted to keep this short and simple but still keep it interesting for you.  I have spoke a little bit about simple products before but didn't go in too much detail. I have been using simple products for a while now because I have really sensitive skin and I really have to be careful with what I use. But I never get any bad reactions from these products and I just cant stop raving about them.

So normally I am not one for using make up wipes and I normally use the simple micellar water. But since I ran out I thought I would  try something new and picked up these wipes. I love them they seem to be doing my skin a whole lot of good since I started using them I haven't had one spot. They seem to be working a treat for my skin and really giving my skin the love it needs.

The facial wash is also great it is packed with vitamins and its great to give your skin a quick refresh in the morning. It helps maintain healthy glowing skin and that's what we all want to keep our skin nice and healthy, because our skin is very delicate and we need to look after it to prevent getting dull lifeless skin. Swapping your skin care products can make so much of a difference. Make sure you're using the right products.

The wipes give my skin a good exfoliating treatment, it feels super soft after. I've also said since using these products I haven't got any nasty little breakouts this is so true. Normally wipes are really frowned upon but these i highly reccomend.

The facial wash is such a great pick me up in the morning it's so good to add to your skincare routine. It keeps my skin healthy with all the vitamins.

Have you ever tried simple products? let me know in the comments

10 things to be happy about in life.

Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog today I wanted to write a blog post about what I am happy for in my life. Its something to get you readers to think about, life is a precious thing and it should be enjoyed to the fullest so I would definitely  recommend to write your own list.

10- I am happy that I have a roof over my head and food on my plate everyday, its hard to think that many people out there go with out meals and don't have a home to call their own.

9- I am happy to have a loving supportive family.

8-  I am happy to have my blog and happy to hear from my readers.

7-  I am happy to be myself.

Friday notes 08.05.15

Hello welcome back to my blog, today has been another day of filming my groups documentary for college. It has been a really good day and its gone very well. We decided to go in a place called millennium gallery in Sheffield, its a very popular attraction and it has some really nice eye catching art work so we decided to interview people there. All the people we interviewed were very lovely and we really appreciate them taking some of their time to help us out with our documentary. So while I was there I decided to take some pictures because there is so much great things to take pictures of. The model made out of spoons and forks really caught my eye so I had to get a picture of it, how interesting does it look? I just love the results of the pictures. I also did my first role for the documentary i am doing the presenting side of it and it went really well i managed to learn my lines and get it done the first time! (yay me).

I love how interesting this looks. The detail like the rusting of the spoons really make it look interesting.

Can you spot me in the reflection? (ha ha )

Its just such amazing talent it proves you can make anything out of anything.

A picture i took of the filming today this man was very friendly and made a great interview :)
And obviously I had to include a selfie didn't i

So that's been my day, i hope you have had a lovely day and let me know what you're up to this weekend in the comments
