Prom 2015

Hey guys, sorry I've been gone so long! I did have my GCSE exams but I am back now and (hoping to) upload weekly or monthly, but regularly anyway. Now onto the exciting part... PROM. This post is going to be like a 'vlog' but written, so lets begin with year 11.

I went to the same school from 2010 to 2015,  I had 3 different best friend 'groups', 4 (silly) boyfriends and 5 years of fun. Ask me in year 9 if I enjoyed school and I would say no for sure, give year 9 me the chance to drop out and I know I would have but I stuck it out till the very end. I didn't care much for school until year 11 when things started becoming real. I had exams in 4 months and I still didn't know Pythagoras theorem or the composer for waltz! At this point I had a breakdown and cried for 2 hours straight. I made a revision timetable and started with history as (if you ask anyone that knows me, will tell you) that was my worst subject. I got stressed after an hour and a half and went to bed. I did bits of revision but nothing major until 2 weeks before exams when I started revising my for my first exam - core Biology. When the exam came around I was pretty prepared and confident. I left the exam feeling ok but still unsure. All other exams after that were hard, I wasn't confident on any of them and until August 20th I still wont be. I finished school on June 12th and finally stopped stressing. I prepared myself for prom and to be honest, wasn't really excited.

Prom Day-

11:00 - I woke up and ate some honey on toast, drank my tea and relaxed.

12:30 - I left my house to meet Courtney and went to the hairdressers where my cousin Laura started on my hair.

3:40 - I finally left the hairdressers. (If you're wondering why it took so long - my hair = 1 and a half hours, Courtney's make up = 1 hour, Courtney's hair = 2 hours.

4:00 - As the hair took longer than we expected I had to rush home to get my make up done by my mom's friend as I now only had one hour.

4:45 - Make up done and now I had the finishing touches - silver tattoos, jewellery, dress on, shoes on and pack bag.

5:10 - I was late but ready. My cousin, Tanya, dropped me and my mom off to Hannah's, where the limo was picking us up. Luckily for me the limo was running late so we still had time and I didn't miss out on anything.

6:20 - The limo arrived and dropped us to the Motorcycle Museum, where the prom was being held. It took 40 minutes to get there so we arrived about 7:00.

7:00 - We arrived at prom! We took photos, said hi to everyone and sat down to eat.

8:00 - 12:00 - We danced, took photobooth photos, chatted, cried and had a great night.

1:00 - 11:00am - The afterparty!!! (oops)

Quick, Easy and Cheap Gift Ideas

Hello everyone, this post is going to give you a bunch of cheap fun and easy gift ideas for your friends and family!
  • Memory Book or Jar
Price - Free 
Need  - Paper, Pens, Jar or Book
A memory book or memory jar is a cheap and easy way to show your friend or family member that your care about them. I have found that the best way to do this is through out the year write down any special memory's or events that you have experienced together and coming up to the gift giving you can either write them in a pretty note book or place them into a jar! I think this is a really do-able, inexpensive and fun way to give a gift to someone. (A quick tip here - to get a nice jar with out directly paying much money to can clean out an old candle or coffee pot)
  • Spa in a Jar
Price - £5
Need - Jar, your choice of products (a few ideas - face mask, travel mini's, nail varnish, nail file etc)
Spa in a jar is another fun gift to give someone, yes it is a little more expensive than the memory jar but I think this could still be done for around £5. If you are looking for a practical gift rather than a meaningful gift I think this is a really good idea. 
  • Plan a Picnic
Price - Depends on the food
Need - Food, Blanket, Sun
This is a really inexpensive, fun and easy way to spend someone's birthday if it's in a summer month. This is one of my favourite's a it is a nice way to spend time together and have a lot of fun! I guarantee memories will be made if you try this gift. 
  • Bake
Price - Depends on what you bake (but bake kits are available for around £1)
Need - Bake kit or home ingredients
Baking for a friend is enjoyable for both you and the friend/family member for not too much money! Baking shows that you have taken time to make something for them, it's a personal present. 

I hope these helped some of you, leave a comment if you have any other ideas please!

A Day In My Life | Concerts

The Vamps, The Maine and Bribry!

Hello friends here is the post we have all been waiting for...

A Day In My Life - Concerts

On the 5th of October 2014 I went to see The Vamps in concert for the 4th time. If you don't know who The Vamps are - number one, where have you been and number two, totally check them out. They are a British 4 piece pop group who released their debut album Meet The Vamps this year. My favourite songs from the album are Move My Way and On The Floor and luckily for me they performed both! As the concert was seated we didn't have to get their early to queue or anything so we got there half n hour before opening and got out merchandise afterwards - I bought the pack of 4 bracelets. They were wonderful live (as always) and they even did an All Time Low cover which was awesome. The night was rad and I would really recommend seeing them live if you ever get the chance!

 Here are my photos:

Moving on to The Maine, I saw The Maine on 7th of October 2014 for the first time. I have loved this band for such a long time now although I didn't have any friends that shared the love until this year which is why I hadn't seen them before. The show was awesome as the band performed so well and they sound just like the studio recording. The Maine are one of my music influences, I would love to tour the world playing beautiful indie rock music with my best friends while staying humble and happy through out. Once again I would really recommend seeing them live or checking them out if you don;t know who they are !!

Here are my photo's:

Now finally for my personal favourite out of the three, Bribry. I was second row at this concert (and The Maine) which I think makes a concert a lot better as you are closer to the artist. Doddleoddle (Dodie) was the support act and she is on of my favourite youtubers ever. She inspired me to buy my ukulele which was one of the best things I've ever bought with my own money. Both Dodie and Bribry (and Candice) put an a great, intimate show that was so much fun.

Here are my photos:

That is all really, I'll update you next time I have a concert or do something exciting for another ADIML !!

bye x

Is It Just Me Or... Tag + Update

Hey guys look who's back !!

So I should probably explain where I have been over the last few weeks. To start with, I said that I was going to post a concert experience for The Maine and The Vamps as I saw them both a couple of weeks back although school has been pretty intense. As some of you may know I am in year 11, this means that I am completing coursework and exams this year. In the past two weeks I have has 2 maths and one PE exam hence why I haven't updated the blog. Also my anxiety levels have been a lot higher therefore making me more weary and less confident about what I am writing. Anyway, I'm going to cut out the excuses and let you know whats going on; I will post the concert experience at some point although I am seeing Bribry on Monday so I will probably include that too but right now I have been tagged by my wonderful friend Charlotte ( ) to do the Is It Just Me Or ... Tag, originally made by Amy from

Amy's description of the tag:
You know when you have those weird moments where things happen to you or you thing about something and then you wonder if it's just you that does these random and weird things? Well I've had an idea to write about them so whoever is reading can think omg it is not just me that does this !

These are the things that make me wonder, is it just me or...
  • When reading a book I always picture it around my life. I find it really hard to get into the book if it doesn't relate to me or my life. This is probably the reason Fangirl (By Rainbow Rowell) and Paper towns (By John Green) are my favourite books. (I know paper towns isn't directly related to me but I like mystery's and romance, both of which are involved in this book!)
  • Another thing I do is when writing (in my case usually a song or a blog post) I forget what I am doing half way through and then get really angry at myself. Not even kidding I had to re read this sentence because I forgot the point... oops.
  • Finally, if I have a bunch of things in front of me such as on my school desk, I have to arrange them in perfect order. If they aren't straight and neat I start to feel anxious and very  uneasy. I know this sounds crazy but it's about to sound crazier because I'm not even a tidy or organised person. My room is messy and so is my head although my laptop files, wardrobe (well the clothes in it), make up and stationary are all organised perfectly. 
That is all from me, I am going to tag anyone reading this!

Have a good week and I'll be back soon x

Things I Use On My Face

Things I Use On My Face - 21/09/2014

(photos will be added tomorrow)

I change my skin/face routine quite often so I am going to say that this is the first of a few posts on this. All of these products are either from Lush or The Body Shop simply because I find that their products work best with my skin (this is in no way sponsored).

The first thing I use is usually The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Face Wash. I use this to wash my face daily - sometimes twice - as it really cleans my skin and clears up spots as it has tea tree in it. The tea tree also makes it smell great which is a bonus.

The next thing I use is the Herbalism cleanser by Lush. I personally hate the smell of this product although it does do it's job.

After that, I use one of two products, the Mask Of Magnaminty by Lush or the De-Stressing Face Mask by Superdrug. Mask of Magnminty - there are multiple reasons I love this product, 1) The smell is one of my favourites ever 2) It clears up my spots and makes my skin feel super soft. 3) The name is a pun and I really love puns. De-Stressing Face Mask - this mask completely strips my pores and cleans my skin, it also leaves my face feeling super soft although is stronger than the lush mask.

Finally I use The Body Shop Tea Tree Toner (do you see a Tea Tree pattern here or?). I use this to kind of dry out my spots which it does very well. 

That's all for this week, sorry it is short but I have homework and stuff.
Also I wont be posting next weekend as I am going to post on Monday 6th October and then again on the 8th (if not it will be the Sunday) as I am seeing The Vamps on the 5th and The Maine on the 7th!!
