Writer's Block

Hey dolls!

I know its been a while since I've posted anything or had an update of what I've been doing but its literally been the most stressful year EVER! Saying that, I know some of you will be in the same position as me at the moment and its nearly over, we can do this! Two more months left of year 13 then UNIVERSITY! Hooray!

So as I said, I've mostly been focusing on things at school. I haven't even been to work either because I just wanted time to rest at this busy time of year. I feel as though I've been living at school because of all the work and after school sessions I have done lately, its so tiring and you really appreciate sleep when you get to this stage in life! How I wish I could go back to the life of five year old me and tell myself to take as many naps as possible.

I really hope everything that I've done in these two years pays off. I can't say I'm the best at revision so I would be 0 help to anyone looking for motivation because I am currently trying to buy motivation on the internet but I can't find any! Anyone, ideas, please?

The only major thing that has happened lately since I last blogged is that I finally PASSED my driving test! It was probably the most nerve wracking experience ever, my foot was shaking whenever I had to release the clutch and I screwed it up so many times. Somehow, with the help of the driving gods out there, I passed first time. It literally feels like a huge achievement when you pass, everyone that has passed will remember what it was like. I think its because of all the time you put into it and the fact that everyone else around you can drive, you just feel very proud.

Next chapter, I bought a car! Yay! Its not a great car but its also not a bad first car. My dad found it in our local area and it was fairly new and not very used at all which is brilliant. I got a Kia Picanto, I'm not sure what the reg plate is but I'm sure its 2007. I had initially been taught how to drive in a diesel car and I'm finding it difficult to adjust to a petrol car, also I'm really scared I don't have full control when I'm driving - speed wise. I don't drive quickly but when I want to slow down, its too abrupt.

So that's what's been going on. Plans for the next two months are to try and blog a lot more after exams finish. I've been thinking about finally writing a review on SkinnyMeTea which as most of you know is a detox tea made with natural ingredients. I've never had it before and I've heard lots of reviews about it which has made me want to try this out myself and give an honest opinion. Also I've finally sorted out the layout of my blog which I'm very happy with, this is how it will stay for a while. Hope everyone likes it! And, I was also thinking about putting some hauls on here very soon with outfits too!

Hope you guys have had a lovely Easter x

A Nail Polish Invasion

I feel like Bruce from Finding Nemo. 

Bruce: Hello. My name is Bruce. 
AnchorChum: Hello, Bruce. 
Bruce: It has been three weeks since my last fish, on my honour, or may I be chopped up and made into soup. 

Its been two days since I last purchased nail varnish and then two days before that I also bought some more. I go through these stages where I get very obsessed with buying nail varnishes and have to have them all. Strange? I'm sure everyone's done it at one point!

So this post is clearly about a new nail varnish purchase that I was very excited to blog about and I thought "what a good opportunity to take some pictures and plonk them on here", plonk doesn't sound appropriate because it sounds careless, more like "I thought long and hard about this decision and decided to upload these wonderful pictures".

I don't know how or why I randomly came across the modelsown website but I did, and its 50% off all nail varnishes at the moment!! The amazing thing is that they are all 14ml pots and that's around double the size of any other nail varnishes. For £2.50 I thought it would be ridiculous to miss out on. So I got my sisters involved too and they bought a couple. 

I'll be doing a couple of swatches of the different colours once my nails have grown as they look quite shabby at the moment. It was really quick delivery as well, they came within one working day which is great for standard delivery.

Cue the pictures!

A couple are duplicates because me and my sisters bought some of the same colours. Watch out for some swatches of these six colours!

Hope you're all well x

Cue The Tumbleweed

Hi guys, yes I realise it has been quite a while and that I have indeed abandoned you...

So let me explain myself.

In general, its such a hectic year because of the fact I'm in my last year in the run up to getting into university and it has been very busy so far. From the beginning in September when I started writing on my blog, up until now. The beginning of February. There's so many things going on at the moment, not to list too many, but: school, after school sessions, work every weekend, another new job, prepping for uni interviews, prepping for uni entrance tests, driving lessons, getting closer to my driving exam, school work mounting up to my ceiling, coursework deadlines. Its definitely been a busy couple of months.

Not that any of that is an excuse, I should organise my time more wisely but that isn't how its gone down as we all know I win the award for being the biggest procrastinator on earth. 

Now to get to the nitty gritty of what I've been doing lately. As some of you may know, probably not many of you, but I've applied to enter a primary education course and that means I've been having to do a lot of things in preparation. Lots of teachers have given me advice on how to approach the process, for example, getting as much work experience under my belt as I can which is what I've been doing once a week, every afternoon. Also, my new job involves me working with children which is even more experience but means I won't be having much time to do things at the moment, such as writing on my blog and updating.

All my weeks right now consist of school, work and driving. I really suck at driving as well so I wouldn't be surprised if I was still learning by the time I've turned 66! Everyone cross your fingers and toes and anything else for good luck, I hope I pass first time or that's money down the drain (this is not likely whatsoever).

So this was just a little update and apologies for those (if any) who do read my blog. But, I do have an exciting new post to come and also I might be doing a mash up of a couple of things I've accumulated over the Christmas/New Year/sales in general in terms of clothes shopping.

Hope you're all well x
