Hey Everyone! Hope you have all had a lovely day! It's officially the last day of May which means I churn out the old monthly favourites post! As you all probably know if you read my blog regularly I normally do two separate posts. One for beauty and one for non-beauty however when I was looking at things that I've been loving this month I realised it hasn't been that many things, particularly when it comes to beauty products. So I've decided today to combine them all and do it in one post instead. Enjoy!

NON-BEAUTY


'Everything Is Going To Be Okay' Book: I haven't been feeling to confident or good about myself lately and I've been thinking quite negatively about things which isn't really me. However this little book is something that I have turned to a lot lately as it's just full of positive quotes and it's just amazing to look at if you're in the need of a quick pick me up. I love it. 

Beauty and the Beast: Beauty and the Beast is probably my favourite ever Disney film. I absolutely love it. I love the story and I love the music. I just think it's such a lovely story and it's definitely a film that I have been watching a lot lately. 'Something There' is definitely my favourite song from the film. It's just stunning! 

'I Heart Vegas' By Lindsey Kelk: This is a book that I've started to read a million times since around March but just haven't been able to properly sit down and finish it but that is what I have been doing this month and I absolutely love it. The book follows the adventures of a woman called Angela and follows on from books like I Heart Paris and I Heart New York. If you haven't checked out any of these books yet I'd highly recommend it. This one was probably my favourite in the series so far as it just made me laugh a lot and was just really enjoyable. 

Taylor Swift's 'Fearless' Album: It's no secret that I absolutely love Taylor Swift. I honestly think she is amazing and I love all her songs and albums. This month however I rediscovered her second album 'Fearless' and I absolutely fell in love with it all over again. This album just brings back so many memories and I remember relating to every single song on the album and it just reminded me of how I felt at that time both good and bad. It's just a fantastic album and definitely my favourite album of hers. 

Extra White 'Bubble Mint' Chewing Gum: I know chewing gum is definitely one of the weirdest things you could possibly talk about on a blog but I absolutely love this stuff. It's just really good. I know chewing gum isn't the best thing for you but yeah I love it. It's definitely one of my handbag essentials as I tend to be a nail bitter but instead I'm letting them grow and resulting to chewing gum instead. 

BEAUTY 

Original Source Vanilla & Raspberry: There aren't enough words in the English language to describe how much I love this shower gel. It smells absolutely amazing, lathers up really well and just leaves my skin feeling super soft. I will say that it does smell very, very sweet which can sometimes be quite empowering but I absolutely love it and would highly recommend this. They are only £1 at Superdrug at the moment which I think is amazing!

L'oreal Skin Perfection Cleansing & Perfecting Milk: I absolutely love this cleansing milk. I know a lot of other bloggers use higher end skin care but I can never afford that so I stick to simple drugstore brands which I find just work so brilliantly for my skin and this definitely does the trick. It just removes all traces of make up so well and really leaves my skin feeling amazing. You can really notice a difference once you've used it. I have a full review of this and a couple more skin perfection products coming up on my blog in June so make sure to stay tuned.

Revlon Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie: I'm sure it's no secret that I love this lip butter. I've raved about it so many times on my blog in monthly favourites and all sorts of posts and I just love it. Perfect amount of coverage, stunning colour for my skin tone and just such a moisturising lip butter. I've got way to many of these now but I love them so much.

Yves Rocher Fixing Eyelid Primer: I absolutely love this stuff and I didn't actually think I would. It just keeps my eyeshadow in place all day long. It lasts all day and doesn't let my eyeshadow slip and slide around either. I absolutely love it and I literally cannot imagine using another eyeshadow primer. If you haven't used it yet I would highly recommend it.


Well done if you got to the end of this post and I'm incredibly sorry if I bored you! I haven't been using or buying much this month at all so I've been going back to old products that I've reviewed and spoken about a million times on my blog but these are a few of my favourites I thought you might be interested in. If you love anything here please let me know in the comments section below.

Hey Everyone! Hope you are all okay! So today I thought that I would do a completely different post from my usual rambles and talk to you all about finishing university. On twitter I follow a lot of people who are just at that stage now of finishing their final exams/dissertations for university and are getting prepared to enter the big wide world with the rest of us. I've seen a lot of tweets from people who are concerned and are scared. I graduated university two years ago and believe me when I say I was nothing short of the word terrified. It is scary but I've drawn from my own experiences to put together this post. I hope it helps you.

Remember To Congratulate Yourself: When I was at school and college nobody thought I could get to university. Despite working so incredibly hard at school my grades didn't often reflect that. Especially when it came to exams. I was fine in coursework but exams was just a no-go for me. My high school wouldn't even let me back to do a-levels as they thought it would be a complete waste of time and that I wouldn't get to university. Even though I struggled a lot when I was at university I powered my way through and ended up graduating with a second class honours degree. It is honestly the best feeling in the world and despite having my doubts along the way I think it's extremely important to take a step back and just realise how much you have accomplished. Having a degree is amazing and one of the biggest things you'll achieve in your life and the fact you've committed yourself to stay in education to better your future is amazing. Give yourselves a pat on the bag, go shopping, celebrate in style with your friends. Whatever you choose to do hold your head high and be proud of what you've achieved. 

Don't Stress About Your Results: This I think is probably one of the most important things to remember. Whether you've handed in your dissertation, completed an assignment or just walked out of an exam you've done the best you can do. It's done and completely out of your hands. Do not stress about it and move on to the next exam you have or if you have none left make sure to go out and celebrate with your friends. I think one of the worst things you can do at the end of an exam is talk through answers with your friends. I absolutely hate the whole 'What did you put for that answer?' questions. It can really stress you out and make you worry so just walk away from that if it comes up or change the subject. You've done the best you can. Now it's just a waiting game. Just make sure to have fun throughout the waiting period. 

Remember The Amazing Experiences: University is hard. It was for me. My first year was absolutely amazing and I had a fabulous time. Second year was the complete opposite and really not the best year I had and my third and final year was a really good year. However throughout all three years I made memories and had amazing experiences with my friends. Looking back at them at the end was really special and it just made me realise that those bad times were not that bad. I pulled through them and came out of it a better person and I was extremely proud of that. Don't worry about life getting in the way of your degree. It happens and as bad as things seem now, once you've got that degree in your hand it'll seem like nothing and you will remember the amazing memories you made. 

Prepare For Graduation: Graduation is such an amazing experience and I honestly wish I could re-live my own graduation so I think it's extremely important to take full advantage of the day! Dress up in your best outfit and take a million photos of everything from selfies, to putting your gown on, to family photos to that all important throwing the cap in the air, it's definitely a day where it's acceptable to document everything! If you're in an amazing venue as well make sure to take as many photos of that too! I graduated in Westminster Cathedral in London which is pretty amazing. If you're a snap happy person like me this is the perfect occasion. I will include a few photos at the end of this post of my own graduation. 

Make Sure To Apply For Work Experience/Internships: A lot of people at the end of their degree or after graduation will not have a job to go straight into. If you do then Congratulations! If you don't then please do not worry. It is not the end of the world and you will find something. However I think it's extremely important to keep an open mind and take anything. Whilst you're applying for jobs, also make sure you are looking for work experience opportunities and internships! Remember that anything will look amazing on your CV and even though it may not be money just now it could lead to bigger and better things. Just have an open mind and always be positive and enthusiastic. Just make sure to relax, take a deep breath and apply. You may not hear things back but don't lose your momentum. Keep trying and eventually something will come up and it'll all be worth it. Your hard work will not all be for nothing, I promise! It took me ages to find a job in my field but at the same time I was applying for everything. Make sure to tailor your CV and if need be head down to the job centre and get them to help you regarding your CV and they could even tell you about placements within the area. I know some people view job centres as quite a negative thing however they really do help you. It is after all what they are there for.

Travel Around: If you are finishing university and don't have anything planned but maybe have some money travelling for a little bit is always another option. You've just spent 3/4 years studying. I'm sure you'll need and want a bit of a break from the same surroundings. When I finished university I was desperate to get out of the country. I just needed a little bit of a break and really didn't want to stay here. I applied for a job with Thomas Cook which involved six months of work abroad. I was sent to Turkey and even though it's definitely not somewhere I would normally go I had an amazing time and saw lots of amazing places and saved a fair bit of money too. However, if you don't want to travel abroad, maybe visit some places in the country you live in and travel domestically. You don't need a huge amount of money and even if it's just a day trip at least you would have experienced something new and got away for a little bit. You could even arrange a final get together with all your uni friends after graduation before you all go your separate ways! 

Celebrate, Celebrate, Celebrate: Last but not least be sure to celebrate with all your friends and family. You have all been on this journey together and everyone around you will be immensely proud of you. Make sure to have fun and enjoy your new found freedom as a fully fledged adult!


So those are just a few tips and advice I can think of that can possible help those of you scared about entering the world for the first time on your own. Above is a few photos of my own graduation with some of the amazing friends I made whilst I was there. If you have finished university or are finishing pretty soon then the biggest congratulations to you. What you've done is amazing and you should be so proud. If you are still in university then please make the most of it! It's just three years of your life and even though it may seem tough and you are struggling you will pull through it and gain some absolutely amazing experiences as well as an incredible life achievement. Best of luck to everyone and good luck with whatever you have lined up!

Mini Home-Ware Haul

Hey Everyone! Hope you are all well! Today I thought that I would do a home-ware wishlist as I haven't done a wishlist in quite a long time and there's always things I have my eye on so I thought why not compile a list of all the home-ware bits and pieces I want. Even though I still live with my parents I am constantly on the look out on different decorations and home-ware bits and pieces for areas in the house that look a bit plain. I also love adding things to my own bedroom as well to make it just that little bit personable to me. I've been doing a little bit of online shopping lately and spotted this gorgeous home-ware bits and pieces that I hope to get my hands on when the next pay day rolls around.

1. Bunny Bookends: How cute are these bunny bookends? I've got a whole section of books on my desk in my room and they look really untidy and cluttered so I'll definitely be purchasing these in the future in order to make them look a bit more tidy. They are so so cute!

2. Ring-A-Ling Telephone Notepad: As someone who tends to be quite forgetful and pretty much useless at passing on phone messages I think this would be absolutely perfect on my desk so that when I receive a phone call I just write everything down and then pass the message on. They are so cute too and if you have an office job they can definitely brighten up your desk.

3. Copper Heart LED Chain: I absolutely love these purely because they are copper coloured. I think they will look so cute draped around my bed or even around my noticeboard on my desk. I just think they are so pretty. Normally when I see these things they are usually in white or pink and tend to look quite tacky but I actually think these look quite classy.

4. 'Fleurs' Small Wooden Box: I'd be lying to you if I said I wasn't drawn to this box because of my name on the side of it. I just think this would be the perfect blogging prop. When I buy new products it takes me a while to actually use them because I normally photograph them first for my blog but this can be used as a nice little storage compartment until the time comes to photograph them. I absolutely love this and will definitely be purchasing it in the new future.

5. 'What Would Audrey Do?' Book: I absolutely love this little book. I am a massive fan of Audrey Hepburn. I just think she was such an amazing person, a brilliant actress and super gorgeous too. I love the look of this book and thing it'll look incredibly pretty just sat on my desk.

6. White 'Live, Love, Sparkle' Plaque: I absolutely love plaques like this. I think they look so cute and dainty and are a great source of inspiration too. I have a bunch of plaques like this just hung on my wardrobe handles and drawer handles and I just love looking at them especially when I am in a bad mood as I find it can be a great way to give you a positive mindset.

Those are just a few home-ware bits and pieces that I'd like to add around my house and room. There are a lot more things on my wishlist particularly rose gold things but these are the main things I want at the moment. I just love sprucing the place up with new little ornaments and things. 

What are your favourite home-ware bits and pieces?

3. Copper Heart LED Chain: I absolutely love these purely because they are copper coloured. I think they will look so cute draped around my bed or even around my noticeboard on my desk. I just think they are so pretty. Normally when I see these things they are usually in white or pink and tend to look quite tacky but I actually think these look quite classy.

4. 'Fleurs' Small Wooden Box: I'd be lying to you if I said I wasn't drawn to this box because of my name on the side of it. I just think this would be the perfect blogging prop. When I buy new products it takes me a while to actually use them because I normally photograph them first for my blog but this can be used as a nice little storage compartment until the time comes to photograph them. I absolutely love this and will definitely be purchasing it in the new future.

5. 'What Would Audrey Do?' Book: I absolutely love this little book. I am a massive fan of Audrey Hepburn. I just think she was such an amazing person, a brilliant actress and super gorgeous too. I love the look of this book and thing it'll look incredibly pretty just sat on my desk.

6. White 'Live, Love, Sparkle' Plaque: I absolutely love plaques like this. I think they look so cute and dainty and are a great source of inspiration too. I have a bunch of plaques like this just hung on my wardrobe handles and drawer handles and I just love looking at them especially when I am in a bad mood as I find it can be a great way to give you a positive mindset.

Those are just a few home-ware bits and pieces that I'd like to add around my house and room. There are a lot more things on my wishlist particularly rose gold things but these are the main things I want at the moment. I just love sprucing the place up with new little ornaments and things. 

What are your favourite home-ware bits and pieces?

Hey Everyone! Can you believe we are into the last week of May?! I honestly can't believe it! Today I thought that I would do a blog post about all the bloggers I constantly read. Normally around this time of the month I would sit down and pick out my favourite bloggers that I have been reading through the month and very often these include new bloggers I've recently stumbled across however I thought that I'd talk to you about some of the lovely ladies who I constantly read every single day or at least check their blogs more often than I probably should. I'm sure a lot of you already read these amazing blogs but if you don't then I'd highly recommend it! 

Niomi Smart 
Niomi has always been one of my favourite bloggers. I absolutely love how inspirational she has been to me when it comes to adapting a more healthy lifestyle. I love reading her blog about places she's been to eat and meals she's made as well. She's recently moved down to London as well and has been posting a lot about her new favourite restaurants that she has found in and around London which is absolutely perfect for me as when I head into Central London in the future I now have healthier options to choose from. I also love reading her beauty and fashion posts too as we have very similar tastes in products and clothes so I can always trust her opinion. 

CoutureGirl 
I can't write this post without including the gorgeous Kayleigh as I'm sure you all know I absolutely adore her blog. When I first started blogging I'm pretty sure this was the only blog I consistently read every day. I absolutely love her blog style, the layout, her writing style and her photography and I have absolutely loved seeing how much she has grown as a blogger since I first came across her. If you are looking for good first impressions of products and reliable beauty reviews I'd head straight on over to Kayleigh's blog as they are just so detailed and honest. I absolutely adore her fashion sense too!

I have been reading Corrie's blog religiously for the last few months now. I had always read it on and off but since the started of 2015 I have absolutely loved reading her blog. There is something for everyone on her blog. Whether you are looking for a beauty review, a fashion post, a bit of lifestyle or even if you just need a quite pick me up I definitely head to Corrie's blog first. Her writing style is just so amazing and I don't think it's possible to read her blog without laughing at least once. She's just a brilliant blogger and one that I am always excited to see on my feed with a new post!

Pearls And Poodles
Milly is another blogger that I have been reading since I started to blog. I absolutely love her writing style and her photography as well. Always so clear and crisp and always true to colour. Her beauty reviews are absolutely amazing and I always finish the post wanting to buy the product. They are just amazing and her opinion is one that I can trust 100%. She's also an extremely lovely person and I have loved reading her posts about all her adventures in NYC as well.

You can find absolutely everything on Victoria's blog. I absolutely love it and it's definitely a blog I turn to if I am looking for a bit of style inspiration as Victoria has the most amazing fashion sense! I also love reading her blog and seeing new places she's been exploring whether it's overseas or in London I just love reading her blog and seeing what she gets up too. 

EmTalks
I absolutely adore Em's blog. There's just so much variety on there. If you are looking for fashion, beauty, lifestyle, fitness, travelling you can find it all over on Em's blog. I think I look at her blog at least once a day as her photography is always absolutely amazing and I love reading her opinions and views on different things. Em has also been travelling a lot recently to so many amazing places and as I'm an extremely huge fan of travel myself I absolutely love reading about the places she's been to so that I can add it to my own travel wishlist. When it comes to fitness, she is one of my biggest inspirations and I love reading about what she does to keep fit and different food to eat as well. I'd definitely recommend Em's blog if you haven't checked it out already. 

MilkBubbleTea
The gorgeous Becky is the author behind this blog and her blog is up there as one of the prettiest blogs I have ever come across. I absolutely love her pastel/white themed photos and the fact that every post is just so simple to read. I can honestly spend hours scrolling through her blog and reading through her wishlists, adventure posts and beauty reviews. Her blog is just so pretty and she's such a lovely girl too. 

RosyChicc
Andrea's blog honestly gives me photographer envy. She always takes the brightest. clearest, most beautiful photos. I'm desperate to know her secret! Her beauty reviews are always incredibly detailed and honest and is definitely one of the first bloggers I turn to when I'm looking for a new beauty product to try. She's recently had a blog revamp and I'm absolutely loving the new layout too. Definitely check her out if you haven't already. 

So there we have it. Just eight bloggers that I absolutely adore. Their blogs are just so incredible and they are all such lovely girls too. I know you might be thinking that most people follow and read these blogs already and it would be good to come across new blogs but these are the ones I read every day and the ones that inspire me to keep going with my blog and who fuel my passion for writing and blogging even further. Without these girls to inspire me daily I don't know how long my blog would have lasted. Be sure to recommend me some bloggers you may think I like in the comments below.

Hey everyone! Hope you have had a lovely bank holiday weekend and are having a lovely Bank Holiday Monday! Recently I have seen a lot of bloggers on twitter post a tweet with the hashtag #bloggerproblems and it always makes me laugh because as I've been blogging for over 2 years now I definitely agree with a lot of things they say. Because of this I thought that I would do a list of 10 blogger problems that I'm sure all of you reading this will definitely be like 'Yep, I definitely do that'. Enjoy!

Becoming very snap happy with Instagram: Instagram is one of my favourite apps on my phone. I'm definitely one of those bloggers who has to photograph something in order to prove that's what happens in my life. If it's not instagram it's taking photos normally ready to post on instagram. It's a great way to document what happens in your life! If something happens and I don't have photographic evidence I do tend to get frustrated. Oops.

Not being able to use new products or clothes until a million and one photos have been taken: I currently have so many make up products sitting on my dressing table from benefit, Nars, soap and glory etc, and I just haven't touched them because I just haven't had the time to take photos of them for my blog. Seeing them sitting there untouched is quite heartbreaking!

Popping into boots for essentials and coming out with £80 worth of beauty products: I went into boots yesterday for some ear buds and ending up coming back with rimmel, collection and bourjois products which if I'm totally honest I do need as all my current stash is running out but it wasn't exactly an essential. Oh dear, us bloggers just can't help ourselves can we?

Almost wanting to kill the postman: The most infuriating thing about being a blogger I find. I actually experienced this on Thursday last week. We spend all that money all online on new clothes and beauty products. We spend all morning (sometimes all day) waiting for a package to arrive and here nothing. We then go to the door to find a red 'sorry we missed you' slip and sometimes try the doorbell ourselves a million times just to make sure it's working and we're not just being silly. SO FRUSTRATING!

Having your friends/people who don't blog look at you like you have three heads when you tell them you have a blog: This frustrates me so much. Even when I wasn't a blogger I knew people who blogged and would always be like oh that's pretty cool. But nowadays people are like 'I don't get it'. What's there to get? I write about beauty, fashion and lifestyle things because it's fun and what I'm passionate about. What is there to get?!

Receiving e-mails from companies who want you to try a product but haven't even done their research to see what your blog is about or if it'll suit you: I run a partially beauty and mainly lifestyle blog. However I have had people ask me if I would like to try their new CD burner. I appreciate the thought of course, but no thank you. This actually leads me to my next point.

Companies that email you but don't even know your name/how to spell it: My name is Fleur Danielle on here and on twitter. Companies have emailed me spelling my name as Flur, Fluer, or even called me Daniel. Now whilst I appreciate the fact they're emailing me I do find the fact they can't even spell my name quite ignorant and it really does put me off. Just me?

Having blogger deleting all your hard work: Pretty sure that this happens to every single one of us bloggers. You spend all day or even a few days working incredibly hard on a post and then blogger decides that it doesn't like it and deletes it all. One of the most frustrating things in the world. I've since learned my lesson and know not to trust blogger so I copy all my posts into word as I'm writing it so then I don't have to start from scratch completely. Little tip from me to you there!

Planning your schedule for a blog photo taking session and then waking up on that day to dark grey horrible weather: This is the worst thing ever, Especially for us bloggers who use 100% natural lighting. I've tried to take photos when it's like this  and just given up as the photo quality is just horrible. I do eventually want to invest in some soft box lighting for my blog as I know that will definitely help the situation. Not so much in summer time but definitely in the winter.

Stop taking blogging so seriously: I'm 100% guilty of this and I'm sure all you other bloggers are too.  I forget that blogging isn't a full time job and that I should be having fun and it's a hobby. I spend way to much time comparing my blog to others. I just need to remember to enjoy it and all the experiences and opportunities it'll bring me.

So there we have it. Just 10 blogger problems that I'm sure a lot of you bloggers out there all struggle with. Blogging is fun but it's also quite hard work and definitely not as simple as people think it is. It is something that can frustrate you a lot however it's also something that can make you extremely happy and introduce you to so many amazing like minded people. I've made so many friends through blogging and I wouldn't change it for the world!

Hey everyone! So today I thought I would do a post offering a few tips on what to do when you're having a bad day. We all have those days where we feel upset and down about different things. We get really angry and annoyed over little things and often have those days where everything that could possibly go wrong goes wrong. It's really hard and tiring and at the moment I am having an awful lot of those days to the point where I have a breakdown. It's really not good but I've been trying to challenge all that negativity into positivity so I thought why not share all these things with you.

Go For A Walk: One of the things I love to do when I'm angry or upset is going for a long walk or even a run. Okay let's be honest it's more like speed walking. However and getting back to the point of this walking really does help. It gets you out in the fresh air which allows you to clear your head. It's to just take a walk and perhaps take some music with you and just listen. There's nothing like Taylor Swift's Shake It Off playing in your ear to help you forget all the negative things going on in your life. It's a perfect way to calm yourself down too.

Rant: Whether it's ranting to a friend or writing things down and just getting it off your chest ranting can really help see things and help you gain a new perspective on the situation as well. You may in your head as you talk about it come up with a solution for the problem or think up ways to make a certain situation better. I tend to write everything down in my diary when I am in a bad mood. It just helps me to see the light.

Watch A Funny TV Show/Film: You know that saying 'Laughter is the best medicine'. It really is true. There really is nothing better than putting on your favourite TV show and just laughing your head off. Not literally obviously. Currently my favourite TV show to watch is the Gilmore Girls. So witty and hilarious, great pick up lines and great sarcastic humour. I know most of you out there will turn to Friends but I'd highly recommend Gilmore Girls if you haven't picked it up yet, I just love it so much.

Switch Off All Forms Of Social Media: Social media is amazing for making people feel angry. Sometimes when I've had a bad day I'll go on social media (not going to lie, a lot of the time to rant but I do refrain from this) and see a tweet or post that I disagree with and it just really makes me angry. I'm sure a lot of you out there are the same. I just find switching everything off for a couple of hours and just reading a good book or even just lying down and reflecting for a little bit helps. It really isn't healthy to constantly be on social media so taking a break is always a good idea.

Gym: Now I know you're thinking 'I'm angry and the last thing I want to do is to get all hot and sweaty down at the gym' however trust me when I say it really does. There's nothing like taking your anger out on a tread mill and weight machine or getting in the pool and going for a swim to not only get rid of all that anger, but also get fit and healthy at the same time. It's a win-win situation and you'll end up feeling a lot better afterwards. Nobody ever regrets exercise.

Create A Positive Playlist & Blast It As Loud As Possible: I recently made a playlist on my phone of all my favourite upbeat songs that I love to sing and dance along too. I've been playing it non stop recently and it really does help me cheer up. There's nothing like singing along and dancing into a hairbrush around your room or in the shower using the shower head as a microphone. It really does cheer you up and put you in the most amazing mood.

Have A Relaxing Bath: Of course if it's quite late in the evening or you're not in the mood to do anything then perhaps having a quite relaxing bath will do the trick for you. Light a few candles, maybe get a glass of wine and just relax and chill out. Maybe play some nice relaxing mood in the background to really just set off that mood and help you to relax further. It really will help to just put your worries to one side for a few hours and just chill out and forget about everything.

Read A Book: Once you have had your bath or gone to the gym or just walked away from a certain situation and switched off all forms of social media getting into a really good book is also a way of just releasing that tension and escaping for a little bit. It's really relaxing and can help you see things in a new way too. I always read rom-com type books when I'm in a bit of a funk as they make me cry which is perfect if that's what you need to do or just sometimes make me burst out laughing which like I said above really does help put me in a better mood.

Have A De-Clutter: Sometimes when I'm having a bad day I will just head upstairs to my room and shut myself away from the outside world for a little bit. However sometimes when I go up there's stuff all over the place and it just makes me even more crabby so I always find cleaning and tidying stuff away helps calm me down and feel relaxed.

Have A Nap: Finally if you just can't face anything and just want to have a good cry head straight to your bed and do that. Life is never as bad as we make it out to be. We always tend to over dramatise and think the worst of everything when in face it could be over in a matter of minutes or even a couple of days. However if you've had a particularly bad day then bed is the best way to go. Just go cry and when you wake up everything will be a lot better and seem a lot clearer after.

So there you go, just a few things you can do that can help turn a bad day into a more positive and happier one for you. Don't feel guilty for having a bad day and not wanting to do much. We all have them we all have days when we would just rather stay in bed and not face the world. It's just a part of life. Life isn't always smooth sailing. If you're having a rough time at the moment or having a few bad days then I hope things get better for you. In the words of Annie...The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow!

It really will help to just put your worries to one side for a few hours and just chill out and forget about everything.

Read A Book: Once you have had your bath or gone to the gym or just walked away from a certain situation and switched off all forms of social media getting into a really good book is also a way of just releasing that tension and escaping for a little bit. It's really relaxing and can help you see things in a new way too. I always read rom-com type books when I'm in a bit of a funk as they make me cry which is perfect if that's what you need to do or just sometimes make me burst out laughing which like I said above really does help put me in a better mood.

Have A De-Clutter: Sometimes when I'm having a bad day I will just head upstairs to my room and shut myself away from the outside world for a little bit. However sometimes when I go up there's stuff all over the place and it just makes me even more crabby so I always find cleaning and tidying stuff away helps calm me down and feel relaxed.

Have A Nap: Finally if you just can't face anything and just want to have a good cry head straight to your bed and do that. Life is never as bad as we make it out to be. We always tend to over dramatise and think the worst of everything when in face it could be over in a matter of minutes or even a couple of days. However if you've had a particularly bad day then bed is the best way to go. Just go cry and when you wake up everything will be a lot better and seem a lot clearer after.

So there you go, just a few things you can do that can help turn a bad day into a more positive and happier one for you. Don't feel guilty for having a bad day and not wanting to do much. We all have them we all have days when we would just rather stay in bed and not face the world. It's just a part of life. Life isn't always smooth sailing. If you're having a rough time at the moment or having a few bad days then I hope things get better for you. In the words of Annie...The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow!

What do you do when you're having a bad day?

Heya Everyone! I can't believe that today is the 20th May! Where is this year going? Anyway, before I get to involved with how fast the year is going let's get back into the point of this post. Today I thought that I would revisit my teenage years. I've been reflecting a lot recently by looking at old pictures and it just amazes me how much I have changed as a person as well. I really like the concept of this post and believe me there are so many things that I would tell my younger self if I could. So let's get started and please bare in mind I will be writing this post as if I'm talking to my 16 year old self so don't think I'm talking to you as you read this post. Enjoy!

Stop taking life so seriously and worrying about every little thing. Don't worry about being in the bottom sets at school and don't be so upset about having to redo your GCSE's because that retake year will turn out to be one of the best school years of your life. You will end up passing your GCSE retakes with flying colors. Don't worry about a certain teacher telling you that you will never get to university and choosing not to let you do a-levels. You will get a place studying a pretty amazing qualification at college which will then take you on to university where you will graduate with a second class honours degree proving that awful teacher wrong and making your parents proud of you. It will be the best feeling in the world. 

Don't worry about not having a boyfriend. Boys at that age are annoying, immature and quite frankly you are better off without them. Don't worry about being single because you are 15 years old and still have plenty of time to get a boyfriend. Don't choose to be in a relationship for the sake of it or because all your friends appear to be. Talk to that boy you like and try to become friends. Stop talking to him on MSN all night and pluck up the courage to talk to him in school. You really like him so go speak to him! You will just regret it for the next few years if you don't! You will also come across some pretty disgusting excuses for men and witness friends' relationships that will make you glad you are single trust me! They just aren't worth it!

When it comes to friends, focus on your true friends and quit trying so hard to fit in within the popular crowd. A group of boys and girls who really don't care about you and who take pleasure in teasing you and making your life hard. Do not invite them to your 16th birthday party as you have nothing in common with them and they will not appreciate the effort you have made. They will not say thank you and their behavior will cause your Dad to kick them out at 10PM. They are not your friends and do not care in the slightest about you. They might act like it but they aren't. They are your classmates. Even though they might seem 'cool', believe me when I say the coolest people you know are your current group of friends who six years later you will still have lots in common with and will be closer than ever to. These close friends warn you about the group you are trying to fit in with so listen to them and be sure to take on board what they say! They might just end up saving you from regret! Also remember that even those these people's lives might be perfect they are all struggling with their own battles and their life is definitely not as perfect as it seems to be. 

No matter what your parents say they will always love you. Don't shout and scream back at them. Ignore them. Put headphones in when your Mum starts to moan or call you really hurtful names or just go out for walk or go to your room. If she is asking you to do something do it properly, no matter if you have a lunch date to get to, get that done first and then go out. Yes you'll want to leave home and never come back, yes you will wish your parents would leave you alone but just try reasoning with them in order to get something in return. Realize that even though you might not need them as much, now that you are older, they need you as they, themselves, are also getting older and need your help. Appreciate your parents and love them unconditionally no matter how hard it may be sometimes. 

Don't worry about not having a proper job throughout school,  college and university. You still have your little job at the tutor center working with children of all ages and even though you think  it doesn't count for much this is the job and experience that will get you an incredible job with Thomas Cook working as an Overseas Children's Representative which is pretty amazing and a once in a lifetime opportunity! You will be achieving two of your dreams at once. Travelling abroad and working abroad. That's what you call killing two birds with one stone! After this job the six months experience will land you a pretty amazing job with British Airways which is a massive travel company and will basically kick start your career in an industry you spent a year at school studying, 2 years at college studying and then a further 3 years at university studying. All that hard work will pay off eventually and although you will get really upset and cry and think you're not getting anywhere in the world you will. Give it time.

Start Your Blog Now. Apart from playing tennis and going shopping you don't  really have a hobby and spend the remainder of the time reading books or watching TV which is good but having more than one hobby will be extremely beneficial. You might not be the best at it but you will have found something that you love and are passionate about and it will be something that can lead to amazing opportunities. You will meet and come across some amazing people that will inspire and motivate you as well as be learning new skills too. It will open a lot of doors and increase your happiness and confidence too. 

Enjoy life to the fullest! You will be extremely healthy and happy. You will have an amazing group of friends who even though you don't see as much as you would like to anymore are only a phone call away. You will still argue with your family but you will know how much they love you and want the best for you. You will eventually start your own beauty and lifestyle blog that will introduce you to a world you didn't know existed and improve your confidence massively. Make sure to take each day as it comes and live your life to the fullest.

Remember that you only have one life and are only young once so just remember that the best moments of your life are still to come. Relax, work hard and have fun with the people in your life who love you and just want the best for you. 

Good Luck!

Hey Everyone! Today I wanted to do a bit of a colour themed post which is basically me showing you all of my favourite products in a certain colour. When I was looking around I noticed that most of my products were in pink! Huge shock there right? It amazes me how many pink products I actually have but I love using all these things as I'm sure you know as I have mentioned them on my blog before but if you haven't read my previous posts and want to know why I love everything here then keep on reading! 

Victoria Secret Pink 'Wild At Heart' Body Lotion
Wow that's a mouthful isn't it?! I absolutely love this body lotion. It's a very light but very hydrating moisturiser for the spring and summer I think. It sinks into the skin very quickly and smells absolutely incredible too. It has a very fresh scent to it which normally I'm not a huge fan of as I prefer sweeter scents however this just smells absolutely incredible and the scent definitely lasts on the skin for a good few hours after applying this.  I love the chunky packaging and the colour of it as well. I think it looks really pretty sat on my dressing table. 

Tangle Tamer Hair Brush 
Whilst everyone raves on about the tangle teezer I think I'm the only person on the blogosphere to rave about the tangle tamer. I've never seen it on any other blog but I absolutely love it. I prefer it so much more to the tangle teezer as I just find it gets rids of the knots in my hair a lot easier than the tangle tamer does. It doesn't pull at my hair and is really gentle too. I also love using this in the shower once I've washed my hair as it just works incredibly well on wet hair. It's also cheaper than the tangle teezer as well so if you haven't checked this brush out I'd highly encourage you too! 

Anatomicals 'Don't Just Clean It Woman, Scrub It' Body Scrub*
Once again another huge mouthful for a product however I absolutely love this scrub. I tried a body wash from the range and I wasn't a huge fan of it but that's probably because it was rose scented and I don't like rose smells but this scrub is just amazing. It has a very sweet scent to it and it's really lovely on the skin. It buffs away all the dead skin and really does leave it feeling extremely soft and smooth. I got this with a Love Me Beauty box a couple of months ago. 

L'Oreal Skin Perfection Velvety Soft Toner
This stuff is absolutely incredible. It just removes all my make up incredibly well and leaves the skin feeling so soft and smooth. I've been using this every morning and night recently since I've got it and have definitely noticed such a difference in my skin. It definitely does what it says on the packaging. 

L'Oreal Skin Perfection Serum 
L'Oreal is definitely one of my all time favourite brands when it comes to skin care. I've used so many of their products and I've never been disappointed in anything I've tried. I don't know if you can tell by the photo above but I hardly have any of this left. I absolutely love using this under my make up as I find it really evens out my skin tone and provides the perfect base for make up. I absolutely love it. 

Lush 'The Kiss' Lip Scrub 
I absolutely love Lush and their lip scrubs. I think I have everyone they have but my favourite one is definitely 'The Kiss' which is one they released for valentine's day this year. It has the exact same formula as their other lip scrubs except this one had a few sugar strands and few little hearts for valentines day in it. I always use this on my lips before brushing my teeth and it really does buff away all the dry skin from your lips and leaves them feeling incredibly smooth. 

Rimmel Sweet Crush Nail Polish in Candyfloss Cutie 
I absolutely love this nail polish. I think the name is so cute and I love the design on it as well. It's such a pretty nail polish. It goes on so easily on the nails and doesn't chip easily either which I love. I also think the name is so adorable too. 

Nuxe Rev De Miel Lip Balm 
Probably my favourite ever lip balm. I don't think I can ever use another one as I just find it absolutely incredible. It's so incredibly hydrating, smells absolutely amazing and really does stop my lips from drying out. I tend to use this before bed as it's really thick so it can work it's magic over night. Sometimes when I wake up I can still feel it working which is a definitely plus. It's not a lip balm I would recommend for during the day wear as it is really thick but overnight or lazy days it's absolutely fine. 

Garnier Moisture Match For Very Dry Skin
I'm just going to keep my thoughts for this product very simple. Incredibly hydrating, cheap and works wonders on my skin. I'd highly recommend this for those of you who have very dry skin as it's the best drugstore moisturiser I've come across to help combat those pesky dry patches of skin. 

Revlon Lip Butter In Strawberry Shortcake 
I absolutely love the Revlon Lip Butters. I went through a phase a couple of years ago where I would buy them non stop. I just love how moisturising and glossy they are on the lips. They are the most hydrating lip products I've ever used. I absolutely love the strawberry shortcake colour as I think it's the perfect shade of pink for my skin tone. I can't find many lip products that suit my skin tone but this definitely does. 

Gilette Venus & Olay Sugarberry Razor
Yes I am just casually showing you the razor that I use to shave my legs because...why not? I absolutely love this. It's the most amazing razor I've ever used. It really does remove every inch of hair from my legs and also smells amazing. I also love the moisture bars that are on the razor as they smell absolutely amazing and I find that really does make a different in making sure my legs don't get really dry after shaving. If you haven't checked this out yet I'd highly recommend it. It's amazing. 

I hope you enjoyed reading this post regarding all my favourite pink beauty products. I've enjoyed writing this post and I also love reading posts like this too. I've always wanted to write a colour themed post but didn't know what colours to use and since everything on my dressing table was basically pink I thought that would be the perfect choice. Be sure to let me know in the comments below what your favourite pink products are. 

What's your favourite colour for beauty products?

Hey everyone! Hope you're having a lovely Sunday. Today I thought that I would do another iPhone app post on all the apps I use however I'm going to focus on what my favourite iPhone apps are for blogging. I put a huge chunk of my life into my blog at the moment as I'm still waiting for my job to start with British Airways so I thought why not show you the apps I use for my blog whilst I'm on the go and not on my laptop. Keep reading to find out more.

Echofone 
Echofone is basically a twitter app and I prefer using this over the actual twitter app as I just find it so much better and easier to use. Twitter isn't complicated at all to use but I just find echofone fool proof. You don't get every single interaction in the notification section either and I just prefer the layout and look of the app over twitter. If you follow me then you will know I'm always on here. I love posting my links to posts on here and just talking to everyone else on it. Definitely my most used app.

Instagram 
I absolutely love instagram. I'm constantly posting photos on there whether it's a selfie, photos of my friends or family, outfits, or even food you can find it all on there. I also think it's amazing to have in terms of following other bloggers and finding new bloggers to follow. I love posting photos from my blog posts on there too and using hash-tags for beauty bloggers or lifestyle bloggers as I find it's amazing for getting traffic to your blog. Definitely an important one to have on my phone.

Pinterest 
I love Pinterest for posting photos from my posts on there but also to just find different inspiration whether it's beauty or fashion it's all on there. I'm a little bit addicted to it not going to lie. In the last month alone I think I've pinned over 1500 images. Whoops! But I absolutely love it and you can find anything on there. I love going on there and looking for photos for blogposts where I haven't taken photos myself just to illustrate the post a little bit. It's just so good to have and recently a lot of my traffic has been coming from there which I am extremely happy about!

Bloglovin' 
The one thing every blogger has out there no matter which blog you have as this is where people will go to follow you. I absolutely love this app as it's super easy to read and follow different blogs in different categories too. I also love the analytics section as you can see where your blog is ranked. It's just an amazing app to have even if it does have a lot of glitches occasionally.

WeHeartIt
This is basically like pinterest except I don't really use it as much but it's amazing to have if you're looking for inspirational pictures or photos to illustrate a post. I'd definitely recommend getting this as it's an amazing back up for when pinterest doesn't pull through.

Picframe 
I haven't used this app in a while however I think this is amazing for doing different collages of photos if you do a post about all the posts you've written that month. You can just put a photo from each post into here and upload it to blogger. So simple and affective. I also love putting collages of me and my friends in here too to use as wallpaper.

Blogtouch 
This is basically the blogspot app which I don't really use as often as I should however if I have an idea for a blog post I'll write down the notes in this app and save them so when I log into my laptop I can open it up and finish where I left off. Definitely a useful one to have.

Wunderlist 
If you're a list maker then you need this app in your life. I won't lie here I've never really been into lists however I do make lists for blog posts and tick them off as I go. However you can do so much on here, I'd highly recommend it. It's literally heaven in a phone for list makers.

VSCOCam
The best app for editing photos on your iPhone. Whether you want to brighten an app or add different filters or just spruce up a photo however you wish then this app will do just the trick. I mainly use this for brightening up my blog photos before posting them on instagram.

Polyvore
A perfect app if you do outfit idea posts or wishlists as you can just create a little collage and then post it onto blogger. I tend to use this on the computer more than on my iPhone but it's still a really good app to use if you're on the go and don't have time to do it on a computer.

So there are my favourite iPhone apps for blogging. I know this is based around my phone as I have an iPhone but if you don't have an iPhone maybe there are similar apps available for your phones too! Most of these are free too so you don't need to worry about forking out loads for them. Free and extremely brilliant apps! If there are any other apps you can think of that are good for blogging then be sure to leave them in the description below as I'm always on the look out for more apps.

What iPhone apps do you use for blogging?

You don't get every single interaction in the notification section either and I just prefer the layout and look of the app over twitter. If you follow me then you will know I'm always on here. I love posting my links to posts on here and just talking to everyone else on it. Definitely my most used app.

Instagram 
I absolutely love instagram. I'm constantly posting photos on there whether it's a selfie, photos of my friends or family, outfits, or even food you can find it all on there. I also think it's amazing to have in terms of following other bloggers and finding new bloggers to follow. I love posting photos from my blog posts on there too and using hash-tags for beauty bloggers or lifestyle bloggers as I find it's amazing for getting traffic to your blog. Definitely an important one to have on my phone.

Pinterest 
I love Pinterest for posting photos from my posts on there but also to just find different inspiration whether it's beauty or fashion it's all on there. I'm a little bit addicted to it not going to lie. In the last month alone I think I've pinned over 1500 images. Whoops! But I absolutely love it and you can find anything on there. I love going on there and looking for photos for blogposts where I haven't taken photos myself just to illustrate the post a little bit. It's just so good to have and recently a lot of my traffic has been coming from there which I am extremely happy about!

Bloglovin' 
The one thing every blogger has out there no matter which blog you have as this is where people will go to follow you. I absolutely love this app as it's super easy to read and follow different blogs in different categories too. I also love the analytics section as you can see where your blog is ranked. It's just an amazing app to have even if it does have a lot of glitches occasionally.

WeHeartIt
This is basically like pinterest except I don't really use it as much but it's amazing to have if you're looking for inspirational pictures or photos to illustrate a post. I'd definitely recommend getting this as it's an amazing back up for when pinterest doesn't pull through.

Picframe 
I haven't used this app in a while however I think this is amazing for doing different collages of photos if you do a post about all the posts you've written that month. You can just put a photo from each post into here and upload it to blogger. So simple and affective. I also love putting collages of me and my friends in here too to use as wallpaper.

Blogtouch 
This is basically the blogspot app which I don't really use as often as I should however if I have an idea for a blog post I'll write down the notes in this app and save them so when I log into my laptop I can open it up and finish where I left off. Definitely a useful one to have.

Wunderlist 
If you're a list maker then you need this app in your life. I won't lie here I've never really been into lists however I do make lists for blog posts and tick them off as I go. However you can do so much on here, I'd highly recommend it. It's literally heaven in a phone for list makers.

VSCOCam
The best app for editing photos on your iPhone. Whether you want to brighten an app or add different filters or just spruce up a photo however you wish then this app will do just the trick. I mainly use this for brightening up my blog photos before posting them on instagram.

Polyvore
A perfect app if you do outfit idea posts or wishlists as you can just create a little collage and then post it onto blogger. I tend to use this on the computer more than on my iPhone but it's still a really good app to use if you're on the go and don't have time to do it on a computer.

So there are my favourite iPhone apps for blogging. I know this is based around my phone as I have an iPhone but if you don't have an iPhone maybe there are similar apps available for your phones too! Most of these are free too so you don't need to worry about forking out loads for them. Free and extremely brilliant apps! If there are any other apps you can think of that are good for blogging then be sure to leave them in the description below as I'm always on the look out for more apps.

What iPhone apps do you use for blogging?

Hey everyone! Hope you are all having a lovely weekend. Today I thought that I would do another post in my '50 Things/Ways' series as these posts are really enjoyable to write. I was inspired to do this one on kindness based on my own personal experiences recently. Last week I lost my temper with a shopkeeper and stormed out of the shop and was really quite rude. I was having a bad day and took it out on him which wasn't fair. I never normally lose my temper and I really did feel awful so I went back the day after with a box of chocolates to apologise. He really appreciated that and I felt so much better so I decided that I wanted to write a post on all the little ways you can inject some kindness into your life and become a better person. Some of these things are incredibly simple and you probably do them already but if not here's a list of 50 things you can do!

1. Bake a batch of cookies or cupcakes for a neighbour
2. If your parents or siblings are having a long day make them their favourite food
3. Always hold the door open for the people walking behind you. 
4. If you are in a shop like Costa or Starbucks and still deciding on what you want allow the person behind you to go in front of you. 
5. Donate some money to a charity of your choice even if it just £1. Every penny makes a difference. 
6. Make a little hamper for a friend or family member full of their favourite films, sweets and more of their favourite bits and pieces. 
7. If you next door neighbour has a dog and is busy offer to take it for a walk. Exercise for you and you might make their day! 
8. If you live near an elderly person offer to do their shopping for them. I've done this and they appreciate it so much. 
9. Take a bunch of flowers to your local nursing home. 
10. Record a bunch of videos for each of your friends telling them how much they mean to you and send it to them. 
11. If a friend or family member has young kids and don't get time to themselves offer to look after them for a day or evening. 
12, Have a clear out of old toys, clothes and things you have lying around and donate them to a charity where somebody in desperate need of them will be able to get their hands on it! 
13. If you have some loose change and see a poor person on the streets just pop it into the hat or tin that they have. It doesn't have to be a lot but even a 50p coin can make a huge difference to them. I know some people don't like doing this so don't worry, it doesn't make you an unkind person if you don't as I completely understand. 
14. If you see a lonely person on the street maybe buy them a cup of coffee or a cake. It'll make their day. 
15. If you see a disabled person offer to help them, whether it's pushing their wheelchair or just carrying their shopping for them. 
16. If you have a friend who is a bit sad make them a photo collage or video of all your best moments together and give it to them. 
17. If you are eating at a restaurant, leave your waiter a slightly more generous tip than you normally would. You'll make their day. 
18. Buy a gift for someone and leave it in a random place and let them find it. 
19. Tell a random person a funny joke. Hopefully it'll make them smile & make their day! 
20. Compliment someone everyday but make sure it's sincere. 
21. Call an old friend or family member that you haven't spoken to in a while to see how they are. 
22. Offer to wash someone's car for them. 
23. Make a friend or family member a CD with all their favourite songs on. 
24. If you're on a train or bus offer up your seat to someone who might need it more, whether that's a pregnant lady, or a person with a child, or someone who has lots of shopping. 
25. Give a friend or family member a hug and tell them how much they mean to you 



26. Write positivity notes and leave them all around your house so your family can see them throughout the day. 
27. Now the weather is getting warmer offer to water someone's garden for them whether it's a neighbour or a friend. 
28. Be sure to say thank you for everything, whether it's a person who's served you in a shop or someone who's stopped to let you cross the road, always say thank you. 
29. If you know someone who doubts themselves create a few activities that will help motivate them.
30. Surprise a friend or family member with an unexpected visit. 
31. If you're not on speaking terms with someone and still holding a grudge forgive them, apologise even if it's not your fault and move on. Life's too short to hold grudges. 
32. Give someone a hug who could be feeling down or in need of a hug. 
33. If someone you know has a lot of things to do in a day offer to help them tick things off their list. 
34. Write a letter to all your friends and family members telling them how much they mean to you and how grateful you are to have them in your life. 
35. If you've lost your temper with someone like I did, go back and say sorry, even if you had the right to be annoyed, it's just so much better and they'll probably appreciate it. 
36. If you purchase something on a buy one get one free deal donate the free one to a youth group or charity near you. 
37. Treat a friend or family member to a day out of their choice and throw in little treats every now and then. 
38. Listen to others. Don't interrupt or jump in the middle. Wait until the person has finished talking. They'll appreciate the fact you chose to listen to their side of things. 
39. Let your parents sit down and relax whilst you do all the housework and cooking for them. Tell them they can sit and relax or go out and do whatever they want to do. They'll appreciate it, trust me. 
40. Organise an event with your friends such as a film night where everyone donates £5 or something and then donate all the money to a charity of your voice. Having fun & being charitable at the same time. 
41. If you drive and are in a car park and still have a lot of  time left on your ticket when you leave, give it to someone who's just coming into the car park instead of letting them spend money on another ticket. 
42. If a friend is nervous or worried about doing something, offer to go with them to support and encourage them. 
43. Spend a full day with a friend or family member without being on your phone. You'll soon realise how attentive you become. 
44. Volunteer at an old folks home and offer to read them a book or listen to the stories they have to tell. I've done this before and it's such an inspiring and insightful experience. Older people after all do have the best stories to tell. 
45. Stop being judgemental. Get to know someone or something before judging it on first appearance. ''Never Judge A Book By It's Cover''. 
46. Write one note a day to a friend or family member telling them why they inspire you. 
47. Donate all your old books to a library so that other people can access them for free. 
48. Try going a full day without complaining and spread positivity around others. See if you can increase this to a week. 
49. Kill with kindness. If someone is being mean to you don't bite back just keep being kind and positive. They'll soon get fed up. 
50. Last but not least SMILE. Smile at everybody you meet and walk past. Nothing is more attractive than a person who is always smiling and spreading positivity. 



So there we have it. 50 little ways that you can become a little bit more kind and positive. Like I said at the beginning of this post maybe these are some things you do already but if not there's no time like the present to start. You'll start feeling a lot better and more confident and other people will see that an appreciate that too. Don't forget, always treat others the way you would like to be treated yourself.

Hey Everyone! Hope you are all well and have had a lovely week so far! This week I've been quite relaxed and just spent the week preparing myself for my new job, catching up on TV shows, going to work at the tutor centre and just being quite chilled out. I've been getting way too stressed out and emotional lately so I decided to have a chilled out week instead of running around like a headless chicken! So much better. I'm ready for a week of hard work next week! Anyway, before I ramble on too much let me get back to the point of this post.

A couple of weeks ago I was very kindly contacted by the brand Iconemesis. Iconemesis are a British, London based brand that offer a wide variety of iPhone cases for their customers. I had actually browsed their website a couple of times before and I was planning on getting some of their cases anyway so I was super excited when the email popped up in my inbox! Iconemesis work with a number of unique and fashionable designers in order to make sure that their iPhone cases are both unique and fashionable and I must say that I agree with this statement.

All their iPhone cases are extremely fashionable and the designs are so cute and girly which I absolutely love. No matter your age I think these cases would look great on your phones. Iconemesis very kindly offered to send me a case from the collection and I will admit that it took me around 40 minutes to decide which one to pick as they were all so lovely. I eventually decided on this gorgeous Fifi Lapin Bunny Cupcake Case* as I loved the purple colour and the cupcakes and bunnies design so it was just a no brainer really and I must say I am very impressed with the case. I hope now that you've read this bit you understand the pun that was totally intended in the post title. Don't judge haha!



The case arrived within 3 days of me choosing it and was very neatly packaged. I absolutely love the quality of the case too. It's hardback and fits my iPhone 5S perfectly. The quality of the design is excellent and it's not one of those phone cases where you have to worry about the design fading either. It's just a lovely case and will look lovely sitting on top of your desk and on your bedside table. It's just so pretty and because it's hardback plastic if it gets a little bit dirty it is extremely easy to clean.

Unfortunately Iconemesis' cases are only available for iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus but the variety of designs and cases you can get for these phones if you have them are amazing and I'd highly recommend it. At the moment Iconemesis are doing a sale where you can get a number of their cases including the one I've got for only £5 instead of £10! Amazing deal!



If you are interested in these iPhone cases and would like to head on over to the website and browse their full range of products then just click this link http://iconemesis.co.uk/ where you will be taken straight over to the website.

Have you bought a case from Iconemesis before?

My Sweet New iPhone Case

This post was written in collaboration with Iconemesis but all opinions are my own. 

Hey Everyone! Today I thought that I would a post about things you can do to improve your own happiness and be more positive. I've wrote down a list of things in a little book and then realised that it might make quite a good blog post. If you read my last post then you will know I have been quite down and unhappy lately. I decided not to dwell on that and instead do things that will make me happy and more positive instead of being negative so before I ramble too much here's a little list that I've compiled. 

Eat Healthier & Improve My Diet: This is actually something I've been doing the last couple of weeks. I won't lie here, Back in April I did eat a ton of junk food and drunk so many fizzy drinks and I did put on not a lot but a little bit of weight. I've saw it in my face and I wasn't impressed. However the past couple of weeks I've cut all that out. Yes I've had a nandos however I've mainly stuck to fruit and vegetables and been drinking a ton of water and the difference in how I feel now compared to a few weeks ago is amazing. I have lots more energy, feel less tired and just genuinely feel a lot happier and healthier which is very important! It doesn't have to be drastic changes but it will really help. 

Go For Long Walks: I love exercise, however I mainly work out at home on the wii fit which I absolutely love using. I used it a lot last year when I worked in Turkey and I noticed such a difference so I decided to purchase it when I got back home and I love it. I've never been one to go running around the block or outside as I just hate it. However, I love going for long walks and I love just getting into my work out gear, plugging in my headphones (because I can't live without music) and just walking in the sun. There's a massive park just behind my house and I love walking through there especially at the moment because it's so sunny and there's lots of beautiful flowers every where. 



Have a pamper evening: Pamper evenings have slowly but surely become a firm routine to  have probably around twice a week within my house. I absolutely love just getting together all my favourite products, lighting a few candles,  putting on some relaxing music (at the moment it's Collabro) and just relaxing. It makes me really happy and it's the perfect therapy for a stressful day. 

Surround Myself With Positive People: If you read my last post then you will know when it comes to family, I have quite a negative one. It's really hard to get the support and encouragement for my family,  however I do have some amazing friends who always know the right things to say and do  to cheer me up and inspire me and I think that's so important. I'm going to make it my goal for the next few months to  spend as much time with them as possible instead of being cooped up in the house with the negativity that's here everyday. 


Look For Positive Messages & Quotes: My favourite way to do this is via pinterest. I absolutely love that site and I have a whole board dedicated to quotes and messages that inspire me to be and do more as a person. I think it's really important to have something like this. I even have a few of this downloaded to my phone and my phone background of the moment is of an inspirational quote just so that when I'm having a bad day I'll see that whenever I get my phone out. 

Create A Happy Playlist: I have a playlist on my phone and iPod and I'm going to create one on spotify soon of songs that just really make me really happy and put a smile on my face. I'm one of those girls who will go up to her room and shut the world out if I'm having a bad day, however I will then have a pamper session and then just dance around the room in my underwear or PJs singing at the top of my lungs. It really does make me so happy and it's the perfect thing to go to put you in a good mood! Stay tuned to my blog if you want to see what songs are on my happy playlist! 



Watch A Funny TV Show: Now I know everyone here will probably see this and think well yeah Friends is a perfect show to cheer anyone up however I've never seen an episode of friends before. However I absolutely love The Gilmore Girls. It just makes me laugh and smile so much. If you haven't seen it yet I'd highly recommend it. & Don't worry! I am planning on buying the entire friends box set in the future so I can watch them all! 

So there we have it, seven things to improve your happiness. I really like the number 7, it happens to be my favourite number. Don't ask me why haha! Anyway, like I mentioned at the beginning of this post I wrote a list in a notebook a few days ago mainly just for me but then I thought it's that time of year where people are finishing uni, starting exams, maybe getting stressed out at work so maybe it'll be a post that can help other people through hard times too so I really do hope you enjoyed it and that it'll help you be more positive & inspired. 

What do you do to be more positive & happy?

I used it a lot last year when I worked in Turkey and I noticed such a difference so I decided to purchase it when I got back home and I love it. I've never been one to go running around the block or outside as I just hate it. However, I love going for long walks and I love just getting into my work out gear, plugging in my headphones (because I can't live without music) and just walking in the sun. There's a massive park just behind my house and I love walking through there especially at the moment because it's so sunny and there's lots of beautiful flowers every where. 



Have a pamper evening: Pamper evenings have slowly but surely become a firm routine to  have probably around twice a week within my house. I absolutely love just getting together all my favourite products, lighting a few candles,  putting on some relaxing music (at the moment it's Collabro) and just relaxing. It makes me really happy and it's the perfect therapy for a stressful day. 

Surround Myself With Positive People: If you read my last post then you will know when it comes to family, I have quite a negative one. It's really hard to get the support and encouragement for my family,  however I do have some amazing friends who always know the right things to say and do  to cheer me up and inspire me and I think that's so important. I'm going to make it my goal for the next few months to  spend as much time with them as possible instead of being cooped up in the house with the negativity that's here everyday. 


Look For Positive Messages & Quotes: My favourite way to do this is via pinterest. I absolutely love that site and I have a whole board dedicated to quotes and messages that inspire me to be and do more as a person. I think it's really important to have something like this. I even have a few of this downloaded to my phone and my phone background of the moment is of an inspirational quote just so that when I'm having a bad day I'll see that whenever I get my phone out. 

Create A Happy Playlist: I have a playlist on my phone and iPod and I'm going to create one on spotify soon of songs that just really make me really happy and put a smile on my face. I'm one of those girls who will go up to her room and shut the world out if I'm having a bad day, however I will then have a pamper session and then just dance around the room in my underwear or PJs singing at the top of my lungs. It really does make me so happy and it's the perfect thing to go to put you in a good mood! Stay tuned to my blog if you want to see what songs are on my happy playlist! 



Watch A Funny TV Show: Now I know everyone here will probably see this and think well yeah Friends is a perfect show to cheer anyone up however I've never seen an episode of friends before. However I absolutely love The Gilmore Girls. It just makes me laugh and smile so much. If you haven't seen it yet I'd highly recommend it. & Don't worry! I am planning on buying the entire friends box set in the future so I can watch them all! 

So there we have it, seven things to improve your happiness. I really like the number 7, it happens to be my favourite number. Don't ask me why haha! Anyway, like I mentioned at the beginning of this post I wrote a list in a notebook a few days ago mainly just for me but then I thought it's that time of year where people are finishing uni, starting exams, maybe getting stressed out at work so maybe it'll be a post that can help other people through hard times too so I really do hope you enjoyed it and that it'll help you be more positive & inspired. 

What do you do to be more positive & happy? 
Hugs and Kisses
