Beauty | Makeup Products I Use | Part 1 - Face Products

 Hello World!

Today I thought I'd try something different and do some Beauty reviews and show you what products I use! This is going to be a 3 part series covering literally all my makeup (yep, I don't have much so guys, leave some products I need to pick up in the comments, I'm open to anything!) and this is Part 1 - Face Products. Also, some of these products I've been using for a while so they look a bit worn! And also, some of them my nan has given me because she just buys truckloads of makeup she doesn't need or doesn't like so often she gives them to me and my mum.

Latest Blog Post | New School Year, New Me

Hello World!

First thing I'd like to say is, thank you so much for 1000 pageviews! I know it sounds stupid and small compared to some people, but I really just want to thank you guys for everything you do for me. The fact people are reading my content, literally straight from my mind, and are enjoying it, makes me feel amazing. Also the fact you guys can relate to the things I'm saying, just is absolutely incredible. I've always felt so alone, and now I have all of you guys supporting and commenting and even becoming friends with me is just...I have no words. Thank you guys so much. It's unbelievable.

Anyway...

Seeing as I'm going back to school next week and I'm starting Year 11, I've decided to embrace the new year and try and change and alter my lifestyle for the better! I'm going full out for this new school year, new me! Also, I want you guys to know I'm doing this for me, on my own terms and not to try and please anyone else.

Lifestyle | A Late Night Rambling...

Hello World,

This year, I've struggled with coming to terms with the fact people actually need me, and love me and appreciate me for who I am. This isn't a coming out post, because I'm not gay, but that I'm coming to terms that I am wanted and needed in this world. I checked my snapchat this evening, flicking through the different snapchat stories and one of my friends was upset. Naturally, I sent her a message to see if she was okay. It was a day that really upset her (I don't want to share too much in case she doesn't want me to share it) and she had bad memories of it. She mentioned that the day it happened, I'd stayed up all night to talk to her and make sure she was alright, and she'd never forget the kindness I'd showed her. She said she was lucky to have a friend like me. I actually teared up reading her message. Lucky to have a friend like me, just makes me feel so...special, and needed and wanted and loved. She also said that I'm brilliantly and fabulously talented and she'd missed me over the summer. For so long, I've felt like I've just been existing and not living. People close to me, and people I don't even know that well have talked to me to ask for my advice and for someone to listen to them.

Do You Ever Feel | Anxious?

Hello World!

It's time again for the next installment of my series, Do You Ever Feel and today's topic is... Feeling Anxious. I know a lot of people out there who have to deal with anxiety and panic attacks. In this post, I'm going to explain my personal feelings of aniexty and worry and hopefully talk about how to deal with feeling anxious and how to get over panic attacks.

I think I've always been a rather anxious person, even when I was a small child. I always find myself overthinking at night, worrying about everything, my friends, my future, schoolwork, exam results, health. I get this strange feeling in the pit of my stomach which feels like I need to throw up and go to the toilet at the same time. I get all hot and sweaty and I feel as if need to get out of an enclosed space quickly. I also want to say that I've not been officially diagnosed with aniexty problems or anything because I don't really want to go to the doctor to be truthful. I do think though, that these may be panic attacks, from stories I've heard through Zoella and a friend.

Latest Blog Post | Holiday Homework Haul!

Hello World!

First of all, I want to say thank you for the great reception of my previous and first, real, proper blog post (if you haven't read it yet, you can click here to read it) about feeling left out. It actually made me really emotional to think that really, we aren't alone and that everybody goes through that horrible feeling. I also want to thank everyone who took the time to comment and share their own personal stories in the comments. It's really brave of you to do that, and I honestly really appreciate that. If anybody needs to talk about anything, my Google + is always open, even if you just need some advice about a certain situation or you just need a stranger to listen to you and get worries or problems off your mind. Thanks so much again guys, I've been made to feel really welcome in the blogging community, and it's just somewhere I feel I belong now I guess. 

Also, I've decided that I'm going to post whenever I can, and whenever I feel like over these next couple of weeks towards the end of the summer holidays. I want to get as much content out there before school starts, that way you guys won't be without posts.

Anyway, on with the post!

Do You Ever Feel | Left Out?

Hello World!

I've decided on starting a new "series" of blog posts called "Do You Ever Feel..." because, I have a lot of feelings and I need to get 'em out there! Also, I want to help any of you reading this so we're not alone, which fits in quite well with this week's topic, Feeling Left Out.

I can firmly say readers, that I have felt left out many, many times. Sometimes through my own reasons, and sometimes through other people's reasons. I am the kid who never gets invited out, never goes to parties and pretty much just wraps themselves up in their bed and becomes a literal "bed burrito". I know that it shouldn't matter and really I should just be concentrating on my schoolwork, but surely school is also about socialisation too? Of course, I have friends outside of school, and a a few very close online friends, but I cannot help but crave socialisation and interaction without having to make everything happen myself. Relationships between people are a two-way-street and if I put more into the friendship or relationship than the other person I feel awkward, like that person doesn't want me around.

Latest Blog Post | Getting Over a Crush

Hello World!

Do you ever get that sinking feeling when you realise your crush probably doesn't like you? Well they might do, I mean, you've never really spoken to them, you just pass them in the corridor and think to yourself, "oh, they have quite a nice face, I quite like them". Then you realise you have a few classes with them, try to sit near them and their friends if those particular classes don't have seating plans. You try to look as adorable and as photogenic as is physically possible, when really, you look like a hot mess thats trying too hard?

This has been my life for the past couple of months. I've been obsessed with this one guy in my class for about hmm... 3 months if that? Now, looking back with hindsight, I think the only reason I liked him was because I needed to fill a space from another guy. So, I have now decided to take the brave step that is (dare I say it) Getting Over My Crush, or GOMC for short (I will probably use that acronym for any future blog posts about this, because I am a teenage girl after all). 
But how does a girl go about these things? Some people may say, "you can't just get over a crush like that, you can't just decide not to like someone, because if you do then you obviously didn't like them in the first place!" To that I say, yes, yes you can get over someone, as I will now explain...

(NOTE: I'm not a psycologist or a professional "advice giver" so this post is basically what I do and what my friends have done to help me get over previous crushes)

Realisation
Realisation can mean a few things such as
- They may not be the person you thought they were
- They may be different, very different, from the fictional fantasy version of them you had in your head

You may sit and daydream about your bae during science class whilst you should be learning about DNA or whatever (as you can tell I don't listen in science) but they're probably way different from what you imagine. Like in Paper Towns (SPOILERS AHEAD!!), the book opens with Quentin talking about Margo being his miracle. We place our crushes on a pedestal, making them superior to everyone else and often we forget that they're actually just normal people. We often need to realise that these crushes are more like an infactuation than true love.

Accept that you had a crush and move on
Okay, you had a crush, those feelings were cool and now it's time to move on. If the feeling of having a crush was bringing you down for example, making you nervous, overthinking and stopping yourself from doing things with your friends because "omg but what if my crush sees me? I have to look attractive 24/7!" No, no you don't have to look attractive all the time, nobody is and it's impossible. And I'm sure that even if your crush were to see you, they would probably think that you were having a great time with your friends.

TTT - Take your Time and Talk
It's okay to take time in getting over your crush. You may have thought about them for weeks, months (maybe even years idk) and just removing them from your life isn't the best thing to do. Gradually distance yourself from him or her, perhaps if you share the same friendship group it's the perfect excuse to broaden your social horizons and spread your social butterfly wings. Get yourself out there and have fun. It's also really important to talk to people and use your communication. It's no good bottling up all of your feelings and thoughts (hence why I created this very blog, so trust me, I know) so get your best friend, sit them down, and talk to them about how you feel. Or if you don't feel comfortable talking to your friends about it, write your feelings down, or tell a trusted adult in your life. You could even post in the comments below and I'll try and help you as much as I can.

You are beautiful no matter what
It doesn't matter if your crush didn't like your selfie on Instagram, or didn't like your status on Facebook. If your crush doesn't like you back then really (in my eyes) it's their loss. To whoever is reading this right now, you are a wonderful amazing human being, literally made out of stardust and I love you. It's not the end of the world if they don't like you back, you could probably do so much better than them anyway!


My question today is, how do you guys get over a crush? Post your answers in the comments down below! I've "unlocked" the comments too, so you don't need to have a Blogger or Google account to comment. Please subscribe, comment and share this blog with your friends, I'd really appreciate it!


I hope you're having an amazing day wherever you are in the world,


Lots of love,

Hello World!

Hello World!

So this is blogging huh? Cool. If you've randomly stumbled onto this site then, hello, thanks for coming, I have no idea how you might have found this, but thanks a lot, I appreciate it.

I don't know why I got the sudden urge to grab my laptop, turn it on, (realise it has no power so have to scramble to find and plug the charger in before it dies) find a famous blogging site and well, start blogging. I guess it might be because I need a creative outflow, or maybe it's because the internet is one of the best places to shout your opinions and thoughts and hope someone hears you.

I've decided to remain anonymous, however, because I'm so kind to you guys (well probably nobody at this stage hahaha i'm so lonelyyyyyy and I sound so desperateeee) I'm going to give you 10 facts about myself.
