FITNESS FRIDAY: 31.01.2020.

So it's been a while since I've done one of these style of posts, however I am so excited to be bringing them back, as I actually find them quite motivating. I also find myself coming back to all of these exercises. Every week I'll be doing a post on different exercises, as well as an update on how the whole running is doing.




If you follow me on Instagram, you'll probs already know that I've changed how I do my exercises. (That was a really strange way of putting it...) Basically, I'm avoiding any type of weight-related classes, and I'm replacing them with running. Lol, rip me. So I will update you next week with how that's going.


Here's some of my exercises that I've been doing! Feel free to save and use! :)



I also wanted to say that whilst I'm away, instead of doing shitty blog posts written in 2 minutes, I'm going to create a video during the week on my phone, and upload it onto YouTube. That way I'm still uploading on here.


That's all folks - see ya! :)

FAVE BOOKS OF 2019!

How the eff are we in 2020?! Where has the time gone? I'm having a small breakdown at the absolute shock at how we've made it to not just only a new year, but a new decade. W.T.F?!

As we're onto a New Year, I wanted to discuss my favourite books of 2019... & I'm not gonna lie, it's 7 books. 1 series. And I've been obsessed with it all year, as well as this.




The Harry Potter series. My love for Harry Potter (as you'll know if you followed my blog at any point in 2019), has become a brand new love of mine. DON'T WORRY I was a fan before this year, but I really got into the film and F I N A L Y read the books in 2019. And oh my goodness the difference it makes. THE BOOKS ARE SO MUCH BETTER THAN THE FILMS! They leave so much IMPORTANT stuff out in the films!! (If you also agree, pls lemme know in the comments section!)

Because my love for Harry Potter got so big in 2019, 




I also visited the Harry Potter studio tour with Joanne and it was MAGICAL! I was so blown away by the magic, that myself and Joanne are already planning a trip to see the Halloween magic and also the winter magic. ESPECIALLY the winter magic. Here are some images, as well as videos from that:


Not going to lie, I’ve started re-reading the series again already. Which means I’ll be bringing some of the books along with me to Australia, however. I do want to start reading other books and I accidentally came across a reading list that’s called "A Hogwarts House Reading List: 20 Books for Gryffindors." Which makes me want to try a few of those out as well!

The beginning of this year is going to be a small mini series on my YouTube, all about getting prepared for Australia. I’m anxious/nervous about it; and I think it might help me feel a little bit more at ease. So I’ll be posting those from Sunday, and there’s a more funnier/personal one coming midweek next week. 

Already excited to get my blog back up and running. Speak soon!

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!)
