U P D A T E !

Hello everyone, it's been a while. I haven't been using my blog to express my emotions lately, but instead, I've been using my diary. And it's been very therapeutic. So instead, I thought I'd update you with both my online and offline life.


Australia
It sounds like a scary word at the moment, considering I'm going there in February. And I know what you're thinking, "why is this scary?" Welllllll we still haven't gotten all the in-flights and accommodation sorted. And we fly in 3 months. Now I'm a person that loves to be organised, and because my family don't share that love, it's making me extremely anxious. So I've decided to take a step back, and leave it to them to handle, as there's no point stressing, when no one else is yet. 

Also, I'm planning on vlogging my entire month's trip. So look out for that on my channel next year. 



Exercise
If you're a reader of my blog, you'll know that I do love a good blog post, talking all about the gym and different exercises to share. Not going to lie, I've been a little stuck between getting motivated, as well as just not really giving a shit. But it's now 3 months till Australia, and I'm deciding to get serious. Because eating shitty food isn't good for anyone, however it is okay every once in a while for a treat. And I also need to remember:


  1. Junk food makes you feel like shit.
  2. It's messing up your overall goal.
  3. Upsets your stomach.
Unfortunately, my love for a cheeky Dominos, is no longer a thing I can enjoy anymore. Something about that pizza, causes my stomach to hurt a lot. And I've got to start listening to my body more, rather than my cravings. I am frequently updating random shizz here.



Healthy Eating
Following on from my last point, overall my healthy eating hasn't been too bad. The occasional bad weekend, thanks to Mother Nature, but apart from that. I've gotten itno a habit of buying my own food when I'm at my mum's, so I can control what it is I'm eating. 

I attempted a dairy free lifestyle last week - honestly wouldn't recommend. Everything stunk, and tasted like air! It might help you lose weight and give me a clearer face, but personally it wasn't worth it to me.




Relationships
Lol, don't panic. Still as single as ever. Still pining over boys that most likely won't ever like me back, but hey ho. Would I be me without that feature? Nah. But on a funnier note, I did a video on my latest crush and my lol fails. Click here to watch that.


And I think that's it for updating...

Will be writing more posts shortly, so keep an eye out. <3

22.08.2019.


Sometimes I feel lost. And I create a world or a scene to get out my thoughts. It makes me realise how I’m really feeling underneath. And right now, I feel lost. Like I’m at a crossroad, and I can’t choose to go left, right or straight ahead. There’s too many choices, I feel unprepared and I’m scared of what’s going to happen in either direction.

MY YOUTUBE UPLOADS UPDATE.

Hello everyone - I hope you're well! Today is a rainy Saturday, and I've spent part of it like a drowned rat - so I'm HEAVILY missing the sunshine! Anyway, I keep forgetting about updating my blog, and I've been focusing on my YouTube.

Ever since my love for Harry Potter has gained speed, I wanted to revamp my YouTube channel, talking about different aspects of it. So I thought it'd be nice to update you all with what I've been uploading, and I'll remember to also post it here too. So without further adieu...



2019 Channel Trailer


I thought it'd be best to upload this one first onto this post, because it kind of explains everything down to a 't'. This was a spur of the moment idea to film and post this, hence the bad lighting and the crappy editing lols.





My New Love For Harry Potter


I was really excited to upload this (& I'm aware how fangirly I sound - don't worry!) But somehow, I fell down the rabbit hole and also decided, "why not film a video?" The video pretty much explains itself, tbh.





Gryffindor Makeup Look FAIL.


I was so excited to film this one and was proper G U T T E D that it failed. I'm not an expert on makeup and would never claim to be. So just enjoy me absolutely failing.






GeekGear June Unboxing


This was my first subscription box I've ever had and my first unboxing video. It was so stressful because my camera kept dying and whilst editing, I realised the whole bloody video was blurry. So annoyed. 






&&&&&that's pretty much it for now. I'll be attempting regular uploads from now. Every Sunday at 4pm UK time, there will be a brand new video on my channel. See you there :)

My Skincare Routine

Hello everyone and welcome back! Today I wanted to do an update on my skincare routine. I've definitely done one before, but not too sure if it's just on my blog or on my YouTube. I didn't want to too much writing, as the video explains itself. However, I apologise for the vlog-style video and also the shakiness.





Products mentioned in the video:

  • Beauty Bay EYN 9 Shade Eyeshadow Palette
  • L'Oreal Paris Fine Flowers Cleansing Milk
  • L'Oreal Paris Gel Cream Face Wash
  • L'Oreal Paris Cleansing Toner

My New Love For Harry Potter!

Wow, hello. It’s definitely been a while since I last posted on my blog. I’ve been really busy finishing my book - well I guess finishing the first draft. Having to focus on both my book and my blog, was way too much pressure for me. So I’ve spent the entirety of May, putting a month’s worth of blog posts together.

So let’s get on with it! Enough apologies and all that shite! This first blog post is all about my new found love of Harry Potter. Which sounds like a weird statement to me, as every few months for a few years, I get the urge to watch the films from start to finish. But finding them online can be a hassle. However, when I’m ill - which to be fair, is a rarity - it’s the only thing I want to do. Secret? I never actually read the books growing up (I know - shocker!) My brother read them when we were kids, and I remember him giving me one at random. However, the first page was so confusing, I just stuffed it in the back of my wardrobe. And now after reading the books, I realised I’m pretty sure he gave me Goblet Of Fire. So no wonder I was lost!

I decided to do this post as both a video and a blog post, because I wanted to have a proper geeky talk about my love for Harry Potter. And this post would’ve been too long! So please enjoy the video below!




(Side note: I’ll be doing plenty of Harry Potter related posts/videos this month. So keep an eye on my blog! I’m uploading Monday, Wednesday and Friday!)

ORGANISING MY BOOKCASE!

Hello everyone! Hope you're all doing well! Today wasn't supposed to be an organising style video, however I was working this weekend, so I haven't had chance to edit the skincare routine (coming Friday). But I filmed and edited this on Thursday, on my day off, so I've got a post for today!

I hope this isn't too boring for you, however I really enjoyed these kinds of video. Let me know in the comments, what you think of my new and organised bookcase.

Bedroom tour!

Hello lovelies and happy Monday! Today is a brand new week which is amazing, and it’s also my big brother’s birthday! Anyhoo... I wanted to do a post all about my room. This is definitely a different style of post for me, however I love watching people showing interior designs; such as Anna Saccone-Joly, who shows updates on Instagram stories.

 Because this used to be my - ironically - brother’s bedroom and then he moved to Ireland. So it’s now mine. For years, we spent time moving me in and out of this room, because he and his now wife, couldn’t decide where they wanted to live. (Annoying? Yes).

I’ve wanted to decorate my bedroom, ever since I moved in to be honest. It was very masculine and more of my brother’s taste. No offence to him, but I didn’t like it very much. So I started with bedding and then kept hinting to my dad. When I went away to Spain last year, he finally changed it, and I LOVED IT!
I’m so gutted I don’t have a before picture, but oh well! I love the grey walls and the grey carpet. I have an obsessed with grey at the minute, and it’s quite a neutral colour. I feel as if any bright colour could go with it. I also have an obsession - as do most people these days - with marble as well. Just something about it. 
As you will have seen in a really old blog post, I did move my desk into my room. Although annoyingly, the internet has decided it no longer wants to reach my laptop up there, so working is quite difficult sometimes. Especially blogging. I’m trying to clean it up more, as admittedly, my desk has turned into my dumping ground. (Tracy Beaker reference there)

Where the wardrobe and draws are, is where my bed used to bed. And I hated it. Being too close to both the radiator and the window, isn’t something I like. I asked my dad if I could switch the entire furniture, and I’m glad I did. Because it looks so much better now! I also have the boiler in my room. Which is not fun, but ah well. 
For my birthday last month, my dad bought me a bookcase. I realise this might seem like an odd gift, however I wanted somewhere to put my books and to organise it. (I love organising, I’m weird that way). So I was delighted when it arrived on my birthday, and that’s still a bit of a mess. I seem to start projects and then forget about them. Oops?
The room still isn’t 100% complete. Some of the walls are still bare, however it’s a work in progress. I still need to add more personal touches to it, so I’ll be sure to update you, most likely on Instagram stories, so you can see the updates there. Thanks for reading and see you Friday!
