2 YEARS OF BLOGGING!

As of today, I've officially been blogging for 2 years which seems so strange to say! I feel like I've shared a fair amount but thought I would do a get to know me better post as it's a bit of fun! 

Favourite film?
 I can never seem to choose just one favourite but I'm pretty into mystery thriller type films - especially ones with a twist! For instance, I love things like Shutter Island and Inception, anything that keeps you guessing or has an ambiguous ending. I also enjoy a good comedy, one that springs to mind is Hot Fuzz as it also has that twist element. 
What is my Zodiac sign and do I agree with it?
Well, I was born on March 10th, making me a Pisces. I wouldn’t say I’m overly clued up about horoscopes and astrology, I do find it interesting though! In terms of me relating to the general description of a Pisces, there are some aspects that describe me well for sure. In particular, the creative, charismatic, intuitive and adaptable traits describe me pretty well. A…

EMBARRASSING STORIES FROM MY CHILDHOOD

I always remember reading your typical tween magazines and flicking straight to the 'cringes' section, something about the ridiculous confessions always made me laugh and I thought why not take some inspiration! I'm going to share a few of my own embarrassing stories from my childhood...

1) The first time I saw candyfloss I thought it was a tissue and went to wipe my nose on it - thankfully my mum stopped me!
2) During my first year of school an older kid told me to lick a some poison ivy and I was too scared to stand up to them and did it. But the worst part is I then shut myself in the toilet and prepared myself for the poison to set in...clearly it didn't have quite the expected effect
and I finally accepted that maybe I was overreacting!
3) This one time at Christmas I had finished my chocolate and was jealous that my younger sister still had some left. So I shut her in our parents room and bit her ear just to get her to give me hers. Evil wasn't I!
4) When I was …

A LONG AWAITED TRIP TO BRIGHTON

After seeing the popularity of Brighton grow massively I kept talking about how much I wanted to visit. I have seen so many videos and photos that it was like I already knew my way around! Finally I organised my train tickets and my sister and I headed off on a 3 hour train journey.

Since I knew there were a lot of places I wanted to visit we made sure we grabbed a quick lunch to fuel us for the endless walking to come. We then walked down to the West Pier and ate on the beach with the bandstand and i360 in sight. We then decided to bite the bullet and began walking the mile journey along the beach to Brighton Pier itself and I have to say it didn't disappoint. It was pretty packed with and had a huge range of souvenirs, food and attractions - I of course ensured I took various photos of all angles because if you don't post on social media were you really there? (I hope you got my sarcasm there!) Anyway I proceeded to stroll around, clutching my belongings because even though t…

JULY MONTHLY FAVOURITES

Firstly, how are we already in August?! This year seems to have gone so fast and all the months have sort of blurred into one, however I always enjoy reading monthly favourites so here are some of mine for August!

Stationery: Okay, I admit it. I'm a sucker for stationery. I genuinely owe a huge chunk of my revision to Stabilo Boss highlighters. All those endless mind maps were completed using these and somehow it actually helped me to remember a lot of the information. I also enjoy trying to feel and appear organised  (even when I'm not) so these highlighters are something I often grab for. I couldn't not put it in my favourites really...though they may be quietly booted off this list when I receive my results later this month! Pick up a pack of 8 from Amazon using the link at the bottom of this page!
Movie: Troian Bellasario aka (Spencer Hastings) has a new movie out and after loving her in PLL I was intrigued. She is a great actress and this movie conveys a poignant and ed…
